FailureWell, this is awkward.Failure2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?

History of Queen Callisto & Queen Metallia : Callisto & Metallia are the same age. They are both born from the same Galaxy. They were so close, everybody thaught they were sisters. But they were so different. We all know that Metallia's thurst for chaos and destrustion and she found she had a wierd facination for the Earth. So many people she could currupt and feed on their hatred. War was her way of living. But for Callisto, she was the complete opposite. She was the Light itself. Her energy purified dark souls and her light could cure any desease. But she didn't like to mingle with any kind of other lifeforms. Other than for Metallia. But when she found out that her friend had risen an army to take over the Earth, she retreated herself at her tem

I will keep this journal and the files up for anyone who wants to use the previous version.
It is with great joy that I present you with my custom version of Inkscape that I have so lovingly dubbed "Ponyscape". For the past month or two, I've been working on improving Inkscape whenever I could find some free time (which wasn't easy ). I've been using my custom Inkscape version in my most recent vectors, and am proud to announce that I feel it is ready to be released to the masses! For anyone running Windows, you can download the entire package, unzip it using 7zip or winrar, and run inkscape.exe. If you want to compile from source or are not on Windows, download the Inkscape source from their website (http://www.inkscape.org) and apply the source patch (if you need help with this, feel free to send me a note).
Your original characters needed !Hello there~Your original characters needed !1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So after New Year , I've been planning to do a bigger project , since I'll get my tablet on christmas and need something to work and practice on . I've decided to feature some OCs in my first drawings . It's for practice and fun [ Since I doubt that I'll be able to draw any picture full of perfection after a few days with the new tablet ] and I bet it'll be nice to draw something different or a creation of someone else .
About the project :
I was planning to put the OCs , which I recieve [ If I get enough together ] into groups of 3 . Those will be based on their outlooks and how they fit to the theme in which I will draw them in . Here they are ! :
- China / Japan
- Black / White
I will accept 11 OCs [ One of them will be mine ] . Everyone can hand in SEVERAL characters , but only one will get in .
About the original characters :
- ANY fandom is fine , I just won't draw in an specific style . I'll draw them all in MINE , so don't be disappointed

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

I am wary of my following message not being received with the full gravity it deserves. It is not my intention to unduly alarm the deviantART community, but... LaurenKitsune is at this time unaccounted for. All attempts on our part to contact her have failed. It is my hope that she has simply taken a much deserved unscheduled pre-Halloween “vacation” and will be back in online communication soon.
Before going dark, LaurenKitsune was good enough to write and transmit a report on the Slender Man phenomenon sweeping the Internet. That report is published here fo

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

This is a informative article, outside of the normal DLD activities, to bring awareness to a pair of bills currently under much discussion and debate. These bills are called called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIP (Protect IP), presented to the House of Representatives and the senate (respectively) in the United States. Later in this article, we will also discuss how these bills have a world wide significance. At the end of the article are several links to the actual bill, news articles, and forum/journals related to this topic. Our aim here is to give to a brief overview, and to answer some questions concerning this debate.
SOPA itself is an attempt to stop online piracy both domestic and foreign by the United States Gov't. It employs a variety of tactics in order to achieve this, including scannin

Iam able to forgive your ways
But Iam not up for this chase
I want to believe you love me just the same
But your lights are hidden and I'm in the dark again
I can't make your heart beat in the wave of new romance
Iam one to take a chance
To start anew and spark a fire from the past
Tell me you need me all the time
Don't walk away, don't turn me cold
Tell me you love me and that it's true
I won't run but I won't wait
Tell me that your heart bleeds
Just for me
Inspire the fire from inside me
Or turn me cold like the winds in my soul

Detached and withdrawn
Darkness surrounds me
Iam dying for the light to reflect in your eyes
Where am I now?
Where do I stand?
I cannot believe from just a touch
Make me see what's there if anything at all
I have no guide to see this through
Be my angel, come from the dark
Because it's all I know and feel
& you can't see me now..

And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Just like the traveller, I am at a crossroads looking towards where I must go. In this crossroads, as in every crossroads, there are things that need let go and things that be taken along the way. One of those things that one needs to let go are the chances that would have come if only he had taken the road he did not take.
During my absence, I came to ponder about myself, what I want to do… and how I was back then. And I looked back to see how much I have changed as a person and as an artist. Reading past letters tell me that I am no longer that person whom they wrote to back then. When I came to this crossroad… I realized I have not been cherishing my time anymore. I have been too drawn to work to the point that I don't enjoy it. Maybe my highest point was when I was in Digitumblr, when I used to dra

I got lost in the doldrums of my mind
I got lost in my sweet nightmare
Clothed in a dream I wandered in my mind
I found god where he always was
Within my nightmare I found my biggest strength
Within my journey I found my biggest life
Within my life I have seen the biggest heart break
And I felt it for it was mine
And through it all I got lost in amazement
Just as I gave up I found my way again
Just as I died I got born again
