FailureWell, this is awkward.Failure3 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?
Update About My CANCERA big Thanx to everyone for your support and prayers and all your kind words. I just wanted to give everyone a quick update, I'm basically fully healed from the operations where they removed the tumor from my left hip and my lower back.Update About My CANCER3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've just been busy talking to the Docs and I also recieved a new scan this week. They wanted to see how I've healed and check for any new growths. The good news is that I'm clear and the spots they operated look good overall. They did say that I have two spots on my liver that they will be watching, there not sure what they are yet, but my scans down the road will help determine that if they do start going, but they could just end up being tissue on the liver.
I also finally found out about the chemo. I had been waiting on that news. It's been approved and I should start it next week. The good news it won't be as long as the last dose I recieved, which was 5 days a week and 6hrs a day. Which is good news. Since I'm taking the chemo to preven

As Promised, I have an update from my last journal about my broken leg and the Tumor they removed from my right arm. Thanks to everyone for all the kind words and super positive energy you gave me.

It's now been a little over two weeks since I broke my leg, I just saw the Doc to go over everything. They took new X-rays and say it's mending great, but he wants me to stay off it for a few more weeks because my bones are still weak from the years worth of chemo. This way the bone can mend better before I put my prosthetic leg back on. He also removed the staples from the leg, I was surprised to see how many there were, It was over 60 staples he had in the leg. The incision where he cut my leg open looks great and is healing perfectly he said. In the new X-rays, they showed me the metal rods they implanted in my femur bone and hip, they l

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?

Fanart - Legal issueshttp://kirara-teh-love.deviantart.com/art/The-Truth-About-Selling-Fanart-212570726Fanart - Legal issues2 years ago in Personal Journal More Like This
Yeah I always thought and figured selling fanart is illegal. I remember DA had an issue with selling Fanart prints here while I see tons of people in Artist Alley of conventions selling fanart ALL the time, many of the artists coming from here and publicly announcing "this piece is something I will sell in the Artist Alley!"
I do know that fanart is the easiest and most sure-fire way to sell your art esp in conventions and even via commissions but I admit, if I were an author with a published series and I saw people using my ideas and characters to sell and gain profit from, I would like some of that profit as well. Although I am aware things can get very awkward with this if you're just you with no fancy company. Seeing someone do fanart of your characters is flattering and advertises for you; but then it gets weird if they were to sell it, at least I would think. Big companies may not hurt from this as

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).
Don't under-sell yourself 100 points = $1Don't under-sell yourself5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I see so many people on here under-selling themselves, and I've read and talked with lots of folks about how it's been ruining the business on this website. It may be good for the kids who only want to pay 10 cents for commissions, but it's bad for the person doing the artwork and especially bad for people who set their prices realistically trying to make REAL money. Be it for bills, goals, etc.
I've seen other people make journals like this, and now I'm gonna do it too.
If you raise your prices, you and the artists around you can earn more money.
When I see people under-selling their work, I sometimes point it out and try to encourage them to reconsider what they're doing and how changing would be much more beneficial to them.
I know some people are scared to change their prices. "No one will commission me if I do!" But imagine what would happen if all the people you see around you under-selling themselves raised their prices? Fan
*puts on tinfoil hat* What Frozen is really about!Watched Frozen today and it was quite the mess of Scandinavian culture and stereotypes. Don't get defensive if you really love the movie. It was indeed a cultural mess, but in an entertaining way. Also, while watching it, I unintentionally came up with a somewhat sinister theory of what is going on behind the scenes of the main story. (Keep in mind this is just for fun. I can't imagine this was what Disney was thinking.

While it takes place in some Disney fantasy country called Arendelle, it's clearly strongly inspired by Norway, what with all the mentions of fjords and such. But the people in the royal city are wearing clothes that looks like a mix between Swedish and Norwegian dress and they raise a maypole which is mostly a Swedish tradition in Scandinavia (it's still done a few places in Denmark too and even fewer places in Norway, so really, it's seen as a Swedish thing). At one point they meet a shopkeeper who

after my bitching it seems to be brought back, but it has been removed from everyone's favs (17 favs 800 comments ????). Assuming this was because everything prior to its restoration has been thrown into the gutter due to its deletion. It was one of the few things I am actually proud of. I would delete it and resubmit it so that people see it and re fav it but that means I will make myself look like a total attention whore that measures my value based on # of favs
