I tricked tumblrHello everyone, I realize it's been ages since my last journal entry, so I just wanted to update so people know I'm still active.I tricked tumblr2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Maybe some of you saw this, but I made this fake imdb page for a Marauders BBC show and posted it on tumblr. It was just supposed to be a joke/fantasy, but apparently a lot of people bought it
(You'll notice there are lots of things that give it away, however)
But maybe one day, if we badger enough producers, it will be a reality

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Lightning Returns Deviant Art Sponsored contest!Square Enix just announced on their facebook that they will be teaming up with Deviantart for a Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII art contest!Lightning Returns Deviant Art Sponsored contest!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
On the Deviant art Facebook they stated:
"Be on the lookout - you won't want to miss this contest! In celebration of LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII, we're partnering with Square Enix to give deviants a once-in-a-lifetime chance to design a complete customization of Lightning! Submissions begin on launch day, 2/11/14, and we can't wait to reveal who will be a judge."
Now it's unclear if by "complete customization" they mean an outfit for LR or just for the art contest. Of course Eyes on FF will make sure to keep our own deviantArt members excited for this event.
We'll keep you updated but for now, EoFF artists, be on your toes! Your love for both FF and art may get some much needed rewards.

Important news regarding the DGM MangaUpdate-03/11/2014Important news regarding the DGM Manga2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to DGray-Man101 and mangahelpers, we've been noticed that Hoshino might have an Instagram account.
We don't have a way to verify that but the pictures posting on it being mirrors of her style and the occasional picture of a cat looking a lot like Koro, Hoshino's beloved cat.
Judging by the material posted on it, Hoshino seems to be working on a new chapter. And although there is no actual release information, it seems like we could all silently celebrate just a little. We don't want to jinx it. ~
It also seems to include some new character design on Allen's part. But yeah, worth taking a look, I suppose.
And everyone who ever dreamed of seeing Lavi shirtless gets a treat on the Halloween picture.
But let me repeat: It is NOT verified that this is the actual Hoshino's instagram.

The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.

Paypal has changed their layout, you can still send invoices but you can no longer select digital goods.
I haven't had time to really look into it and come up with a solution.
but you pretty much HAVE to send out something physical now if you want to be fully protected. There's still main points in this journal that describe how to go about that.
This Journal is currently Under Revision.
Points have been brought to my attention that have caused me to need to revise this journal.
I am still digging around on my free time to see if I can find a way around this. I will update daily.
Please note that this is specifically for Artists who use Paypal to sell digital goods.
OK, so there has been many artists being scammed lately through Paypal with large chargebacks. If you have been hit by a chargeback recently please feel free to note me and I will try my best to help

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

Do's and don'ts for flawless interactionNot much to say about this.Do's and don'ts for flawless interaction9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Just some basic tips and tricks for flawless interaction on DeviantArt
Watch people when you honestly find them interesting.
Watch your friends, even if they don't have amazing art. It helps you stay updated with their progress.
Watch groups. They'll offer you a fine selection of art you're interested in, and will help you discover new (interesting) artists.
Check the faves of people you watch. As you like their work, you might have similar tastes in art. Checking their faves might help you find cool art.
Recommend art from people that you watch for a Daily Deviation (if good art, of course).
Uncheck all boxes when watching. There's nothing more disappointing than an empty watch.
