We're sponsoring Artists' Alley 2012!
We're headed to Comic-Con International:
San Diego to sponsor Artists' Alley!
We Love Artists' Alley
We're back at Comic-Con!
Last year, our sponsorship of Artists' Alley was a huge success. We were able to provide a more comfortable environment for the artists, display their art on huge screens over the Alley, and let people attending the convention draw with deviantART muro on fantastic digital screens. We plan to do this and more in 2012 as we take on the great pleasure of sponsoring Artists' Alley at San Diego Comic-C

You are a bad personMaking mistakes or bad decisions does not make you a bad person. A bad person is someone who do them but never owns up to them.You are a bad person1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We all make mistakes, we all make bad decisions, whether because of our emotions or our situations. Everyone has problems, and nobody's perfect. We all got things to learn and we learn them all differently.
But you never owned up to what you did. You never gave your due apologies.
You keep giving excuses like "I didn't know better", "I wasn't feeling well" or even "it wasn't that bad".
You keep turning the tables by justifying your deed as a form of "punishment", a "lesson", a "necessity" or because you "had no choice".
You only pity yourself by expressing self loathe and self regret. You speak so greatly about the pain and disappointment you feel, yet you fail to share that felt by the others because of your deed.
You half-ass your responsibility to redeem yourself from this by doing unrelated good deeds and sending materialisti

People people people peopleToo many people misuse terms like anxiety disorder, panic attacks, OCD, and phobias, it's starting to tick me off. Everybody feels an amount of fear and discomfort doing certain tasks, everybody performs odd rituals or behaviors at some point, yet these people use it so casually, such that I nor others cannot take these seriously anymore; I cannot distinguish which one's are serious and which one's are from whining.People people people people1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much call bullsh** on "phobias" people claim to have on random things these days. Most of them are not even clinical phobias, and as far I understand things like "phobias of telephones" is seriously a symptom to a much bigger problem, like social anxiety. I am incredibly afraid of making/taking phone calls, it causes me to lose half my day and endless coldsweat, but I highly doubt I have a phobia of it. Labeling it just feels like an excuse to not deal with and further investigate your issue, and i
Feminism, etc. vs. Roosterteeth(If I don't have all of my facts straight, then please notify me so that I can change this journal entry. Thank you.)Feminism, etc. vs. Roosterteeth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so you guys know that the guys in RT make a lot of jokes. They make a lot of offensive jokes to be honest: jokes about rape, self-harm, disorders, etc.
These jokes are not okay. I do not care about how famous RoosterTeeth is. Fame does not excuse any of those things.
Whenever Ray says "Wow, that's so retarded," that is not okay.
Whenever Geoff says "Go kill yourself," that is also not okay.
Do not try to defend them and say that they've never said these things as I have heard them with my own two ears. And it pisses me off.
And this so called game that Gavin and Geoff were playing, "Connect the Hots", is not okay. It is not okay to objectify women. It is not okay to harass women. Following a woman around in a car in the early ours of the morning is terrifying for said woman. She does not know who these people could be; they co

I don't know why, but since AC3 we got an increase of trolls, even on sites like DeviantArt, and it will poison our community for sure, if it's not already the case with the "racist" accusations RBF had to deal with some months ago.
We all have our opinions on costumes, especially when you love a character, but here, creating an account to directly provoke someone is a serious matter (like short, skinny and other shit like this on youtube/fb in my case).

Using techniques... digital & trad. mediumTechniques...Using techniques... digital & trad. medium3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm wondering what kind of technique are people using while they draw traditional and digital media... for example: If they draw traditional on the same way as digital (painting, coloring, shading...)...or opposite. Because for me digital and traditional are the same. It was always annoying when teachers in school told me that digital is much easier than traditional...that in digital you just press once with the brush and you already have whole image. Hahaha... that's noooooooot true at all I spend more time drawing digital works than traditional... Then I always say to people like that...Try and see for yourself if it's easier than traditional
Well, what I want to say...and ask. Last years I drew more digital drawings than traditional, so when I started to paint canvas, I drew on the same way as if it would be digital painting...only that I had one layer If you saw my digital tutorials... at first I did basic colors, t

All art, no payI just had a discussion with an aspiring writer and manga artist at the convention last week. He told me he has good ideas for a story he's writing, but as he's terrible at drawing, he needed a manga artists to draw the actual manga for him. As he seemed to be pretty serious about it, he tried already to make contact with several artists. But as he doesn't earn money (because... hey... there's no manga yet) he didn't actually pay an artist for the work. As a result, most of the artist gave up after a few pages. Either that, or the art quality was (in his eyes) not good enough.All art, no pay2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As a teacher for the mangaschool organisation, I see a lot of this kind of people. More than I'd like to, actually. This guy was a case book example of the young, aspiring, wannabe manga writer that doesn't understand that you have to invest in something, before you can actually get something from it. Especially when it comes to art.
He kept on ranting about how people didn't draw stuff for them, or how the

Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico
Be vigilant of phishing scamsYour account's security is of vital importance to deviantART and we're committed to providing our members resources and advice on how to stay safe and secure online. Earlier today, an individual or group of individuals redirected some deviantART members to a false deviantART login screen by exploiting a cross-site-scripting vulnerability in deviantART's Journal system. This tactic, commonly known as phishing, allowed the individuals to gain access to some accounts.Be vigilant of phishing scams2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Phishing is a serious matter on the Web. You've probably heard of phishing attempts through emails, the classic example being a fake email from a bank or other trusted authority, asking you to enter your personal information.
The individuals discovered and exploited a cross-site-scripting vulnerability in Journals that provided them the ability to redirect deviants to a different website, designed to mimic a deviantART login screen. Some deviants who did not realize that they were bei

Edit: I've never expected such a massive response to this journal. But because it's gone all over the internet... I would like to settle a few things first... because I keep getting the same replies over and over again.
1. I made this journal as being my personal opinion. I'm not stating facts here. I'm just saying how I personally feel about drawing fanart. Please don't take this journal as a fact, because it isn't. It was never intended that way.
2. I don't expect you to agree with me. I don't mind either. I'd like you to reply why you think differently. Provide me with your insight and experiences. I'd love that.
3. I'm well aware that I can't change anything about most of these facts. I brought them up for discussion because I want to hear what other pe
