WE, AS A FANDOM, WOULD NEVER ABANDON LEGEND OF KORRA!!!
Tell people to make sure to watch legend of Korra this Saturday. Because if it doesn't have big views this week, we'll be lowering the chance of getting a third season. As some of you may not know, the main reason we didn't get a new episode of legend of Korra last week is because Nick wanted to test how strong the fandom is. So after a two week break the views should go down. If this happens, Nick will take it as Korra not having a loyal enough audience, and they may not want to go for a third season. So we need to make sure this up coming episode gets a lot of views!
So please re-blog this to your journals to tell the whole Korra fandom on what needs to happen.
WE WANT A THIRD SEASON, THEREFORE WE WILL DO ANYTHING IN OUR POWER TO GET IT.
KORRA FANDOM, ASSEMBLE!
no need to re-blog this part!

Please keep in mind that ship bashing of any kind is not allowed here. Take that somewhere else because we won't stand for it and you'll just get into trouble.
Also Please keep in mind that although it is now official; we should always make sure that we keep things civil in both the shipping and Avatar community. We are all human beings, and I trust each and every one of you to discuss this topic civilly and respectfully with others.
Anyway, The posts below are from Michael DeMartino and Bryan. Both are creators of The Legend Of Korra. And have made the wonderful show we all enjoyed to the fullest before the end.
Some music to celebrate.

Copyright Abuse part 2Yes, style is an important part of being a Professional artist, But if you look around here on DA this isn't a very professional place.Copyright Abuse part 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
Style comes from being inspired by others, sure some comes from nature and things around us but allot comes from things we enjoy in others work.
Sometimes peoples styles will end up looking similar or the same, based on what they enjoy, dose that make them a bad artist? No! they are still doing their own thing. Besides style never stays 100% the same, its always growing and changing.
If someone is interested in trying your "style", its because they like your work, copying a style is how we developed our own over time.
DA is mostly filled with Hobbies, kids, and freelancers. These people don't really have to worry about having a original style, because they are not pros and allot of commissioners like generic anyway.

No More Unauthorized ArtworkRegarding the debate of whether comic artists should continue selling unauthorized prints/sketches of characters they don't own, I think Bissette and his legal advisor are 100% correct. So from now on, I won't be doing any sketches or commissions at shows of any character that I don't own. Am I rolling over in fear of Marvel? Maybe, but as it states below, they're in their legal right to come after me if there's ever a dispute. I love to complain about the Big Two, but I can't (in good conscience) get upset at them if I'm breaking the rules myself. Being DC exclusive, maybe I can get a waiver that allows me to sketch DC characters, so I'll keep you updated.No More Unauthorized Artwork3 years ago in Personal More Like This

What not to say when suggesting a DDAs CVs we get a tonne of suggestions for DDs, and with those come a variety of assertions as to why the piece should be featured as a DD. Some of these, particularly those that focus on things extrinsic to the art, really don't help get the art featured at all. In fact, sometimes the given reason can hinder the process instead. Here's a breakdown of the most common, unnecessary things we are told.What not to say when suggesting a DD3 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"The deviant worked really hard on this piece."
This is one of the most common extrinsic reasons I receive in DD suggestions, and the reason why it is so common is also the reason it is a bad one: it applies to just about everyone.
All artists who are even moderately serious about their work put a lot of time and effort into what they create. Those that seem to create difficult things with ease have put a lot of years of hard work into developing those skills. If we were to give DDs based on hard work, we'd have to DD almost every piece on the

This is not meant to offend any shippers, I just felt the need to express my point of view. I will try to be as respectful as possible, however please note that I am also very blunt. Can’t handle that? I once again refer you to the top left corner.
I don’t expect anyone to stop shipping Jelsa because of this. I know that people will ship whatever they want regardless of what I say, and that’s fine. But if you don’t mind someone’s opinion, then please take some time to read this.

Advice for Commissioned ArtistsSince I started taking commissions, I've gotten a fair amount of notes and emails asking for advice on how to get into the commission world. I have typed up some information below for artists to consider if they are interested in taking on commissions.Advice for Commissioned Artists4 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are unsure on how much to charge for commissions, then I highly advise you take a look at other artists who are of equal skill to you and see what their commission prices are set at. Get a few examples and take the average for the safest bet. After setting your prices, ask a few friends to look your numbers over and see if they seem reasonable. If not, ask for advice on what would be more appropriate.
*** Note: It's also important to note the currency differences for other countries.
2.) Waiting Lists
Don't do them. At least, I highly advice you don't. Your waiting list could stretch over months and often times a commissioner would rather c

I was commissioned in January, on GaiaOnline, by the username Nyanperonya or :iconnyanperonya:
Was requested to draw 2 of their characters. We made an agreement and the payment was transferred to my paypal on January 27th. I would usually deposit the funds to my bank and work on the request. I have sent 2 wips (work in progress) to them, a rough sketch and a wip that was 75% completed. Without a noticeable watermark to my omission.
Logged into my paypal last week on March 18th to find a negative balance of -$28.62. Checked my transaction history and found that Nyanperonya, or her paypal displayed name "Susie Yi", had an unauthorized transaction and chargeback claim against me. I immediately messaged the

First of all, I have to get this issue out of the
way, so that you'll know and understand why I kept
falling out recently. I will be having another
baby..soon, and i've known it for quite some time. I
was ashamed/embarrassed to even announce it to my own
family, because of the trauma I had to go through the
last time I was pregnant. But realizing that im a
married young adult, I have to accept another
responsibility and WOMAN UP!
I want to apologize, again, for disappearing for a
period of time, and I know ALL of you are getting
frustrated over that habit of mine forever. I wasn't
really sure How to explain it but, there are times I
just have to get myself away from it all because I
can't think clearly..im getting stressed and its
affecting me and the baby..
But getting AWAY from it all will just give me a
moment of relief..and it will come back over and over

Sakura is a "cold hearted bitch" Sakura's temper has often been linked to her being this "horrible demon bitch" who cares for no one but sasuke and herself -____- and again I'm here to tell you guys just how wrong the people who believe that are and to inform you (Sakura Fans) how to disprove this theory.Sakura is a "cold hearted bitch"2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sakura Haruno can be described as many things "Bitch" is not one of them.
She is a caring girl, she cares for her teammates. We all know she cares for Sasuke, but she's shown how much she cares for naruto too.
Sakura's kindness to Naruto
Sakura even in part 1 was conscious of naruto and how he was feeling, she also wanted to cheer him up.
Not wanting to see his dream get crushed.
Here we see sakura with Kakashi as they exchanged glances showing how they believe in Naruto even when everyone else doubts him.
Wanting him to prove to everyone how great he is.

Kitten says; Top 10 most annoying character tropes3) The Shallow love interestKitten says; Top 10 most annoying character tropes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is it? 'The Shallow love interest' is a character that exists solely to be the well love interest to the main character. They usually have no development or personality unless they are around the character they are paired up with. They are simply 'the girlfriend' or 'the boyfriend' of the story, and is unable to stand on their own as a character. When interacting with other characters, they are usually very bland and seem to have no personality besides being in love with the protagonist.
Why is it a problem? Where can I start with this one? This one is seen everywhere like a plague, infecting fanfiction and storytelling alike. It is also a very common trope used in chick flicks, when the main character falls in love with someone and that person's personality is very vague and seems to have no backstory (but has gorgeous looks). I assure you, this character is NEVER unattractive since that's the only thing they have going
Kitten says; Top 10 annoying character tropes2) The Draco in Leather Pants AKA: The misunderstood bad boy/girlKitten says; Top 10 annoying character tropes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is it? This is a character who does horrible things, but is forgiven by the fans/writer because they are hot or 'misunderstood'. You can argue that they they fit the 'Deus Angst Machia' trope but while they are similar in some ways, this character isn't defined by their angst but by their villainous nature.
What's the problem? Oh my god I want to punch this trope in the face. *takes deep breath*
Okay so I think it's best to initiate this rant analysis by using the character that this trope is named after; Draco Malfoy (from the Harry Potter series). Now in canon, Draco is actually a good character because JK Rowling's intention concerning him was to make him a cowardly bully. The problem initiated with the fans, they turned Draco Malfoy into a bad boy bishounen despite him being a racist bigot mamas boy. The trope was named after a novel long fanfiction written by Cassandra Clare
Top 10 deviantArt faux pasOkay, so I made a poll on what annoys you guys the most and we haaave the winners! : D So there it is, a list of ten most annoying things on deviantArt according to you! C:Top 10 deviantArt faux pas2 years ago in Personal More Like This
10. Thanking for a favourite/llama.
This wasn't even in the poll, but many of you pointed this out. We all know what this means. Some people want others visiting your profile to know they will visit their profile if you give them a fav. There is sadly often no real "thank you" behind this, other than just fishing for pageviews. There's even an automatic "thank you" popping up now if you fav something, so there's no need to do that!
9. Drawing themselves all the time.
Okay, I must say it really depends. Some people do great series involving themselves (like Silent-Reaper's ATM series, I like it a lot), but others go seriously overboard. Drawing a new ID every week, drawing an entire series of comics with themselves as the "smart ones" within their crazy circle of friends... It just shows how much i

Idiots. Idiots everywhere.
So apparently there is like this war between NejiHina and NejiTen shippers.
Apparently Nejiten lovers claim Nejihina lovers started on them, and Nejihinalovers claim Nejiten lovers started on them.
Both Nejiten and Nejihina shippers..........can you chill out and just ship your ship?
Neji is dead. Im over it....if he comes back.....AWESOME.
If he stays dead, meh. I mean, lets be realistic, if Neji was alive, I really do not think Kishimoto gives a shit about either NejiTen or NejiHina. In canon, Neji has no love interest. Tenten does not have a love interest. Hinata is interested in Naruto.
Both ships.......they are both, let us be honest here..... fan made. You can whine/argue all you want that they both had their "moments", but realistically, both ships......were lets be honest....unintentionally implied.
