How to Remove that GHASTLY Orange 'Core' TagDeviantArt seems to be raising the price of premium membership, and are now renaming it to what I'm sure they were hoping would be indicative of their pseudo-edgy brand, but in reality, is just confusing the hell out of people. We all know what premium membership is. But core? Sounds extreme! Do we all get skateboards, pogs, and a complimentary Pennywise album bundled with it?How to Remove that GHASTLY Orange 'Core' Tag4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Christ I'm old.
Now, I don't have a problem with dA changing their prices. Inflation is a real thing, and a business has to do what it must to stay afloat. What astounds me, though, they're making such a big deal out of it. Aren't you supposed to not have some big front-page celebration of raising prices? Aren't you just supposed to sneak it in, not say a word, and hope nobody really notices? And if people do raise a fuss, make some business-ey statement about "operating costs" and "economic trends" in some big-worded pile of lip service to quell the peasant folk?
And not only are they making a big deal out of it
Journal CSS: SidebarsIn this journal I share the quickest, cleanest and easiest way to get a sidebar up and running in your journal.Journal CSS: Sidebars8 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just as there are several ways to skin a cat, CSS gives us several ways we can position sidebars in our journals. The two most common are to use position: absolute or float: left/right - both have their own pros and cons.
I think using float is the best, the following paragraphs explain why, but you can skip straight to the code and instructions if you like
last update: Wed, Feb 6, 2013 (clarification etc)
When you use the position: absolute method, one of the benefits is that they're really simple to position, and you can force it to touch a TOP and BOTTOM value (ie, to make it stretch the length of the journal always.)
The problem with using position: absolute however is that it yanks the sidebar out of the page and then places it gently back on top in a way that doesn't let it interact with other elements in your journal. In oth

Last Call On Special Art Packages (: Edit 3/15/13- Hey again! I just thought I'd post a last call on art packages! They are selling out much faster than I had anticipated...I have enough prints and stickers for another 5-8 packages (depending on the package that is ordered). If you want one, this may be your last chance until my next convention. This will probably be my last advertisement for them as well, as I hate to keep flooding your inboxes.Last Call On Special Art Packages (:3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you have already ordered, paid, and given me your adress, your package was shipped yesterday morning.
Edit- Hey guys! Thank you for all of the interest in these packages! If you have already paid for one, it has been assembled and will ship tomorrow morning. If you are considering getting one, there is still time. I still have many prints, stickers, and originals available. At the rate things are selling, I anticipate I will sell out in a little less than a week (for those wondering)

TIPS AND ADVICEOver the last few weeks I’ve been getting lots of requests for tips and advice. So I thought instead of answering each one I will give an overall guide to what I’ve learnt over the last year using graphite. And some of the things I’m going to say may sound very obvious but I’m trying to cater for artists of all levels so just ignore the bits you already know (I apologise for how long this is).TIPS AND ADVICE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But before I go on I must point out though, that I am no expert and this is just what I’ve found works for me so may not work for everyone. And I have only really started getting used to using graphite pencils recently, as I had not drawn for 11 years until September 2012. And so I am still learning myself and have only found out what works for me from allot of practising and trial and error. Also I am not going to go into doing skin textures as I’m still learning what works and it’s far too complicated to describe on here.

Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?It seems there has been a recent explosion in DA users who are now using polymer clay as a medium for their deviations.Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To help out curious users who might be interested in what this medium is, how it works, or where they can get it I thought a NEWS article should be made. I shall also showcase some
deviations made with polymer clay. The data below is compiled from HanaClayWorks polymer clay FAQ and my own FAQ
What is polymer clay?
-Polymer clay is actually not clay at all. It is a form of plastic. (Specifically fine particles of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) suspended in plasticizer) The only reason it is called "clay" is because of it's clay like properties. It is a mold-able substance that can be cured in a normal oven (or toaster oven) and will retain it's shape and remain strong after baking.
Where can I buy Polymer clay?
-You can buy Polymer clay at craft stores like Michaels, AC Moore, Jo Ann Fab

| I'm NOT picky about styles, I'd like quality art though, if it's true quality art, I can go to 300, but that's about as high as I can get, cause I'm poor with points. ;_; And would have nothing left.
| I'm a bit skiddish and nervous about confronting people, so don't be offended if I act awkward, I'm a bit shy. v_v
| I would also like to note, I absloutely love black and white (literal black and white) drawings, so I wouldn't mind those at all either, it doesn't have to be digital.

$1 Polymer Clay Sale! + 30% off clay online!Hey everyone! Guess what time it issss... it's CLAY SALE time! Whoop whoop. (the best time of the year ever.)$1 Polymer Clay Sale! + 30% off clay online!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This week both Michael's Arts and Crafts and Hobby Lobby have delicious polymer clay sales. Michael's wins this week though, all polymer clay packs in store are only $1 each! This covers all brands: Sculpey III, Premo, FIMO, and Craft Smart. Personally I suggest you nab Premo and FIMO since these are better clays, but I like to grab a little bit of everything. You can see my haul of clay here. They're also offering a 50% off any regular price item coupon so I got a box of Super Sculpey for about $6.
Call your local Michael's store and see if they're running this sale. It should be good until Saturday, but again. Call and make sure, as I can't speak for every store. Last time they ran a sale like this a similar one was running up in Canada as well, so if you're way up north then give your local shop a call and see if they're running a
