FAQ What does "yuumei" mean?FAQ5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yuumei (幽冥 or 幽明) means light and darkness, strange and deep, hades, and semidarkness. Not to be confused with yuumei (有名) which means famous... (In my defense, I picked this name when I was 12 and didn't realize it also meant famous...)
What projects are you working on right now?

Why didn't you reply to my comment/note?
I'm terribly sorry but due to the enormous amount of notes and comments I receive, it's simply impossible to read and reply to most of them. I tried to reply to all the notes but it eventually just got to be too much and took time away from drawing. If you have very important news to tell me (such as reports of art theft, requests to help none-profit organization, or business offers, etc) please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Why University of California, Berkeley?A new school year begins at my university and I've been getting a ton of notes asking about why I decided to go there (instead of an art college), or is the art program there any good. Hopefully this journal will satisfy your curiosity and help you decide which college you want to go to.Why University of California, Berkeley?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
But first I would like to make an announcement to my fellow UCB art majors that my friends and I will be teaching a group study class on Digital Painting/Webcomics so if anyone is interested in signing up for the course e-mail the founder, Patrick, at email@example.com (we don't have a Course Control Number yet but we will).
On to the questions~~~
What's the art department like at UCB?
Since UCB is most famous for its science programs (where all the budget goes), the art programs are not the most amazing, but they are pretty good depending on what kind of art you're into. Berkeley has an intellectual yet liberal atmosphere so we try to look at all forms of art from various perspectives.

Featured Artist No. 1
winged-lotus is a true master of cross hatch shading with ink. Don't expect a lot of colour in her gallery but rather let yourself be sucked in by the amazing amount of details in her works and the effort and emotion every single one of them shines with.
It always baffles me how someone so talented only has so few watchers. If anyone deserves a whole lot more of them it's most definitely her.
Featured Artist No.2
Incredibly wonderful soft shading and a unique character style combined with lovely colour choices are what caught my eye about MaddalinaMocanu's works. Her deviations don't only show an advanced level of skill but also all emanate a beautiful magical aura.

News - Watcher Point Rate ChangeDescriptionNews - Watcher Point Rate Change2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Starting in 2013, the number of watchers given per point will be reduced by 40% while the number of points given for each watch received will be increased by 67%. This measure reflects the shifting quality of users giving watches. Previously, nearly all accounts were permitted to earn points and thus the overall quality of the service was low. Over time, filters have been put in place against all forms of alternate accounts, ensuring that users giving out activity are of a higher caliber. However, these active users have not been compensated for their actions.
This policy change will affect all users who are featured in the donation widget at the start of the new year. Those featured now and for the duration of 2012 will receive watchers (and other services) at the current rate. After the new year, all users with outstanding balances will receive watchers at the new rate. Users who give watchers will receive more points after

The offer described below is currently not available
If you have an alternate account that is 4+ years old that you no longer want, leave a comment below with a link to that account. If your account is the oldest of those listed, I'll give you 100 points in exchange for the password/email for the account (this is a permanent trade).
This is part of a side research project into inactive accounts on dA. If your alternate account meets the guidelines I will send you a note asking for the password for the account. After the password has been verified, I will send you 100 points to your home account and change the password and email associated with the alternate account. This is a permanent trade, I will not be returning the account at a later date. Once I send you points, you will never be able to access the account again.
