Design a Zombie CompetitionWe are working on a new project, one that is in full swing as we speak. We are creating a series of toys, well, models to be more precise. ZOMBIES! We have a set of 5 being sculpted as we speak. But we are creating 5 more, 5 designed by you. You'll be accredited for your work on the base of the model, as well as on the models' box.

OKAY – So what's the deal, what do we want?
The image attached are the proportions we want, it's not quite CHIBBI proportions – as an example, look up the artwork for "Super puzzle Fighter" – many Street Fighter enthusiasts will know where we are going with this. Okay, so those are the proportions we want – what about the rest?
Imagine the most twisted zombie you can think of and that's what we want, but in a semi-cute fashion. Recently, in the latest episode i

Artists' Toolbox: The 50mm LensAstrikos for projecteducateArtists' Toolbox: The 50mm Lens11 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The 50mm lens is a great, great lens.
It's versatile, fast and bright, and mimics the view of the human eye (on a full frame. If shot with an APC-S size sensor, it ends up being more like a 80mm). It's also light and easy to carry around. Not only that, but the f/1.8 variety is usually very cheap. The one I use was priced at around $100. Of course, there's the extremely nice f/1.4 variety, but that costs a lot more. If you need a sharp prime lens on a budget, the 50mm f/1.8 is a great deal.
Prime lenses: Prime lenses do not have a zoom range. They're often sharper than their zoom lens counterparts because they lack the extra moving glass elements that the zoom need. This allows them to capture clearer images and are usually sharper. Since prime lenses are simpler, they usually can open up pretty wide, making them faster and more useful in low light situations.

While reading, keep in mind that most of what is outlined below are guidelines and not a set of rules you never ever cross - there are exception to everything but the very first rule (I would say copyright is not debatable, after all, you expect others to respect yours, too). Also, this has gotten very long and still, I feel I forgot stuff...

Thanks :iconneko-kun67: for the name.
So I came up with this idea today during class. it's not a contest. There are no prizes. it's merely just for fun! Originally I was gonna do it with just me and my close friends, but i wanted to extend this project to everyone on DA who would like to join in!
So what is Jade's Jingle Jamboree?
People who decide to join in this will have to draw their OC interacting with something Christmas, winter, holiday, December, whatever related. However, You do not know what holiday related item you are getting. It'll be randomized.
How will you randomize it?

ugh im sorry but (gender identity talk)i dont fucking care if youre a professional bullshit psychiatrist, dont ever tell someone that chooses to identify as a different gender/both/neither genders/ or whatever the fuck gender they want, that their beliefs dont exist and arent valid. You know what isnt valid? even saying that, seriously, what good does that do at all? good job, now you just hurt a person's feelings and pushed them way out of their comfort zone, when CLEARLY THEY WERE ALREADY IN AN UNCOMFORTABLE POSITION IN THE FIRST PLACE.ugh im sorry but (gender identity talk)8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Theft of OC and copyright of OCsI want to address a problem on Deviantart and over the internet, about so called "OC theft".Theft of OC and copyright of OCs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please Keep in mind that I am no lawyer even if I will use law-related terms. And that English is my Third language.
Let us begin :
At some point when you create OCs , you may find yourself face to face with a OCs which can be almost identical. Unfortunately, one common indicator of uploading creations online is the proportion of individuals who will attempt copy, borrow or steal the design of your original character. Or simply create something similar without the attention of stealing.
Many are have been frustrated by several of copies or downright theft of OC without a single note or email asking them of permission. And many find this less than flattering, more or less find it offensive to have somebody copy or steal content you created. Even if they copied it. And some just came up with the same idea. And never knew of your creation.
But remember how copyright works:<

Four hundred people.
I don't really know what to say anymore, I was celebrating 300 watchers not long ago and we're already at 400 now.....that kinda blows my weird, shifted mind :l
I didnt think I was gonna come this far as I joined dA a few months ago, but well, here we are!
And if you ask me, yeah, this definitely tickles my fancy!
I once again have no words to describe how happy and grateful I am. I know everyone always says that, but I really mean it.
I'll now leave a blank space so you'll have to pause for a second, during which you can imagine me melting of happiness and genuine confusion.
So yeah, now that Rabbit is trying to shape my pudding-reduced body into the pineapple it was before, I have time to thing what I could do to celebrate...
..And of course! I'm still gonna hold a raffle, like I usually do :3
So lets take care of it right away, shall we? *insert unnecessarily huge title below:*
I Got A DailyMotion Account!What with YouTubes new policies dragging its own website into the dust, it's good to have insurance. So in the event that my YouTube becomes completely uninhabitable, here's a link to my new DailyMotion profile. Now don't worry. I don't plan on leaving YouTube. But if these policies start getting so out of hand that I have no choice in the future, my DailyMotion will be the place to go next. Well, beside the new website coming soon. There's not much on there yet, but I'm uploading some of my newest content on there to get it started. So just sit tight and relax as I work on the new WHOOKOS, A.E.

Dexter's Laboratory lost episodeHey, everyone. Sorry for cutting the last journal entry short, but I have some news. I assume most of you know or have at least heard of the cartoon show "Dexter's Laboratory". If you haven't.... I don't want to be your DA friend anymore. Hehe just kidding. Anyway, the show is about a little boy genius, his huge secret laboratory and his older sister who constantly annoys him. It was one of my favourite shows as a kid.Dexter's Laboratory lost episode3 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, several years ago I heard that the show had a "lost" (or more accurately "unaired") episode. The episode is called "Dexter's Rude Removal". It was made in 1998. and was NEVER aired on TV. It was apparently only shown several times at some conventions, only to mature audiences. The reason for this is because of the language in it (actual swear words were used). For a long time nobody has seen it and the people who saw it at conventions were the only ones who could testify to it's existence.....until recently. The episode has FINALLY aired on TV. Unfortuna
