PE - Project Animate Introduction + BasicsHello all and welcome to Project Educate - Animation!PE - Project Animate Introduction + Basics2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This week is going to feature stunning animation, interviews with amazing people and a strong focus on Pre-Production within Animation. Also during the week I'll have facts about animation that you might not have known about!
I'll be featuring amazing animation, helping newbies get their feet wet and how to upload your animations to deviantART. I will also be talking about web animation sensations on websites such as Youtube and Newgrounds.
Before we start, I'd like to push my Art History articles - I wrote two journals about the History of Animation up until 1990, so if you feel you dont know your Fleischers from your Windsor McCays then step this way!
Of course, though, animation exists everywhere and has done for hundreds of years! There ar

- Urinate before leaving home.
- If you're coming back home, please kindly wait just a few more seconds until you are out, it will not take so long.

The best of all is that note clearly indicates who this was written TO because of the language our president used on it, so we all can know who did it, since only one of our neighborings speaks that dialect
The point is (in my opinion): Does an elevator really take that long that you can't wait a LITTLE bit more??? :iconwhywouldyoudothatplz: lol it seems some people get exasperated so easy. Dunno why but I totally imagine our president also putting chairs for the
CEA Blog: Mature ContentHey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it.

How the mature content filter works
All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.
The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi

21th anniversary artworks
How to gain popularityI've had various people ask me what they can do to get noticed on DA so I'll write a little journal about my experience with various methods of getting your stuff out there.How to gain popularity2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am not at all claiming to be popular myself, I'm just providing feedback.
1. USE GROUPS
Seriously people. It's probably one of THE best ways to get exposure.
There are so many groups too! You will always be able to find one that is suited to your art.
Groups are effective because it gets your artwork exposed to a new batch of watchers (the people who watch the group) besides your own. Try to join groups with lots of members and watchers, as these will give you the most views.
A really great group to gain exposure from is :icongetwatchers:
2. USE THE THUMBSHARE FORUM AND CHAT

Foo!? Where are you?! Oh, dang you're fast! Thanks for that save back there, but what the heck was up with that rex of a Pokemon?!
I... I’m not really sure what his problem is, but this jungle’s always been pretty harsh. But enough about that. We need to find where all of the villagers scattered off to. I’m pretty certain we’re actually in the middle of an island, with all this water around us no matter where we go...
Island?! But we're not in the middle of an ocean... are we?
No, it’s not like that. I think we’re next to a giant pond. Rather, in the middle of it. I know Prismatic Jungle has one of those, so I think that’s where we might be. It’s colorful enough for that, anyway. My grandfather did more traveling than I ever have... he would know for sure. Hmm, well, we

We'll probably want to give everyone a few days of enjoying Pokemon X and Y and getting up to date with information before finalising applications. That way you'll be able to participate in the first mission, finalise your apps, and it gives us a little more time to prepare art assets for this groups shift to Super.
Things such as Guild leader profiles and icons are also in the works for journal missions. There's still a lot to be done for the overall presentation of the group. I appreciate everybody's patience and I'm really happy to see how supportive the community has been so far! You guys are making a lot of really cool stuff already.
I'll have the official Guild Registration Apps finished and ready soon, along with information on starting accessories and the like, which I know a lot of members have been holding out for. Only 4 more days to go!
Pokedex CollectionsThanks to needlesandfred for the picture. Check it out at this http://fav.me/d4mj60ePokedex Collections3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello there! I'm going to be talking about Pokedex Collections. These are collections of artworks of all the Pokemon there are. That's one picture for all 649 Pokemon (That's the current count for now) that exists. If you're interested in doing it, then continue reading.
What exactly is a Pokedex Collection?
To put it simply, a Pokedex Collection is just one picture for each Pokemon in a collection. For example, a complete collection would be all the 649 Pokemon there is, and a Kanto collection will consist of Bulbasaur all the way to Mew.
Should I consider starting on one?
Give a quick glance at your gallery and ask yourself a few questions.
Do some of your Pokemon pictures share the same style? (E.g. Coloring technique, outline style, identical characteristics).
Have you got the motivation continue doing more, if not all of the Pokemon?
Can you continue working

We were assigned to work in groups this week, and I feel as if im just an unnecessary part of the group. :/ I don't know how to describe it... But this is also why I'm afraid of doing drawing collaborations. Because I suck at teamwork. Here is another rant... :/ If ya didn't notice already XD
Let me explain for a short moment...
We were assigned to work in a group just recently about children's rules and rights. We had 60 articles or more to choose from. Now when we got the assignment, I already planned everything through in my head (I didn't hear it was a group assignment until later when we were assigned in groups) and I knew exactly what article to choose between the 60, to work further with. However, my group didn't seem to agree with me... I got a word in and said "I think there's more important matters to speak of then what's in THAT article, so I think we sh-" I don't know if I wasn't speaking clearly or if I was just

IP confusionIt's sad to see people fighting about intellectual property rights when they apparently have no clue what those are, how they work and what is allowed (and not).IP confusion2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Prime example: http://boltstrueno1fanever.deviantart.com/art/Onyx-Forepaw-Feb-2012-Ref-286737985 vs. http://yasuoxingxing.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4vcima
Obviously the latter is similar to the first.
The question is: is this allowed?
To answer that question, it is important to understand what rules apply and what intellectual property (IP) is.
There are three different kinds of IP that can apply here:
As the name hints this is the right to make copies of a work. It does not protect ideas, only the actual recorded work - artwork, documents, music etc.
This means that if someone copies your art (by directly copying it, by tracing it or otherwise adapting your work) you can certainly take action, but there is little you can do to prevent someone else creating their own
Thing that PISS me off (From a Lesbian)Thing that PISS me off (From a Lesbian)7 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. “Homosexuality is a sin and there is no place in heaven for gays”
I don’t fucking care. You “Religion” does not run my life and my afterlife is MY concern. You can disagree with my decision to be with a person of the same sex but you can in no way apply YOUR religion to my life. PLUS I don’t want to be in your heaven anyway.
2. “Homosexuality will lead to bestiality”
This is just fucking stupid. My wife is in no way anything near a dog or goat. The fact that people say this just shows how ignorant they really are. This statement relates to the fact that you believe that one of the people in the marriage is not a person… has not consented, and is below normal human standards.
3. “Homosexuals are pedophiles”
Also fucking stupid. Homosexuals are no more likely than straight people to be pedophiles. If I wanted to be a pedophile I would just join the clergy and have all the protection I n

I got many questions asking what will happen to Luis the zoroark now his fancomic was been put in permanent hiatus. Well I can guarantee you he's not dead. Despite I no longer have any pleasure in working in Odd Zoroark Out, I like him a lot. It's a waste to let him in the dry.
He's going to be a NPC for my PMD comic entries, I already settled on his active role. That's how you will see him again at the earliest.
If he's going to appear in the new XY fancomic? The most honest answer I can give is: I don't know. I don't have any plans for him there but, who knows! Don't lose faith! In another words, maybe sometime!
About the new fancomic, I finally decided in the title: Starter Double Detour!
And so there's a little resume:

I understand what you're trying to do, guys. That's basically the reason I posted this, I admit, but calling them names is as disrespectful as them tracing over my art.
