Contest - A 'Fat' Female Superhero VOTINGHey guys, we're voting now, check out my front page for the latest poll.
I'm a regular reader of Escher Girls, so when I read the latest post this morning, I was deeply concerned. The following post was submitted to Eschergirls and was not made by me. The artist is Selkiesiun
I DID NOT DRAW THIS PICTURE. :iconselkiesiun: DID. THIS IS A QUOTE OF HER EXPERIENCES.

"This is not so much a critique post as it is a conformation of how absurd the standards of art in the comic book industry have become.
I traveled to San Diego Comic Con this year and participated in the portfolio reviews they where holding from Thursday to S

WARNING: do not copy and paste if you have other html codes not listed here you want to share with others. You have to manually type out the code yourself. dA changed some things in the backend of their site after I wrote this deviation.
(12/5/2014) Edit: I removed the old convoluted code I had before someone introduced me to a cleaner method. Given how old this deviation is, I've deleted the complex version in favor for the easier one for future users to use.
I know there are some deviants that have been having a tough time explaining how to do HTML in comments, journals, or deviations. This short tutorial will teach you how to show HTML format without activating it.
Q: Hey Neo, how do you do bold font?
Q: How about underline the font?
Q: Wait, can you show me how you show the entire code? I tried to show my online friend how to, but it would just bold/italicized/underlined my text. All they see is bold

Do you remember the Big Bad Wolf? He destroyed the Three Little Pigs' houses and ate them (or only chased them, depending on the rendition). He ran to Little Red Riding Hood's home and devoured her grandmother. The Big Bad Wolf appears in countless fairy tales to eat and terrorize the general populace.
In many children's stories, the Big Bad Wolf is symbolic for the negative consequences that can follow bad choices. Two of the Three Little Pigs failed to work hard on their houses, allowing the wolf to blow them over with his tremendous breath. Littl
Tutorial: Legally Get Your Stolen Art RemovedTutorial: Legally Get Your Stolen Art Removed3 years ago in Other More Like This
Here's a quick tutorial for anyone who might find their artworks on a website without their authorized permission. This is the method that you legally go about having copyright infringement dealt with, so your request (if submitted to a host located in the US or other countries that respect copyright laws) will not go ignored. You do not need a lawyer to file a DMCA takedown notice, you only need to be the copyright holder of the work. If you created the work, it's copyrighted to you.
You will usually not get much of a response if you try to submit an informal copyright notice through Support requests on a website. This method is what's outlined in Section 512(c) of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, and what service providers will respond to.
STEP 1: See if the website has a copyright section in the Terms
I'm My #1 Fan: Why Self-Adoration Is DangerousI'm My #1 Fan: Why Self-Adoration Is Dangerous3 years ago in Writing More Like This
First of all, I freely admit that what I say isn't gospel. I am a total amateur at art and writing. I've learned everything that I know via the internet and a few books. It's just that I appreciate all of the tutorials here on dA that have helped me out, and I want to put a little bit of my own methods back in.
This may be one of my more controversial tutorials as of yet.
And yet, I'm not here to talk about a traditional writing topic. This is about attitude. Specifically, I want to talk about an author's attitude towards their stories and their talent in general.
I read a lot of amateur stories on dA, and I do mean a LOT. But one thing that I've noticed is that many writers and artists have what I call "#1 Fan Syndrome." That's where the writer is so deeply in love with their work that their creation suffers. This is especially true when it comes to characters. I hear a lot of people say that their characters are
A Writer's Guide: Believable CharactersI know a lot of you out there are aspiring-writers (I’m one myself!) and sometimes we get so caught up in this “must publish!” attitude that we get lost in our stories along the way. Sometimes there comes a point when we stare at our half-finished novel and say “I’m stuck. “ Usually these moments happen when we don’t know where we’re going next with our story, and usually that’s because somewhere along the line we’ve strayed off the path and we aren’t quite sure how to get back.A Writer's Guide: Believable Characters3 years ago in Writing More Like This
One of the things that you may find helpful if you’ve never done it before is to take a really in-depth look at your characters and the world they live in. Characters are really the backbone of our stories. You can carry an entire story on the shoulders of a character without much plot (memoirs anyone?), but you can’t carry a plot without some great characters. So, to help you guys out, I wanted to write an article on things you shoul
