Dare I Quit DA?No. I'm not going to, no matter how down I may feel. I know that there's been so much going on lately and stuff happens. People change over time. We can't live in the best of life at all times. I wish we all could just be happy together; no more distrust, no more depression, we'd all be happy and drawing as a happy community like the old DA. Unfortunately things have changed. DA has changed too much and continues adding features that not only progress the add-one of the site, but advance our negative feeling growth upon one another. We, as a DA community, who ever is left, must stay strong. Survive on here. Live and forget what ever has happened. Face the tragedies of past and advance to anew. No more depression. No more vents. Those shall be of the past. Instead of dwelling upon what negativities had recently happened, remember the old memories from our fresh starts.

MIGHTY NUMBER 9 COULD BE THE NEW MEGAMAN!
Big news are shown for MegaMan Fans around the world (or maybe not), there has been confirmed a new project by Keiji Inafune that could be a new successor of our Blue Hero MegaMan.
Mighty No. 9 is an all-new Japanese side-scrolling action game that takes the best aspects of the 8- and 16-bit era classics you know and love, and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh and amazing!
You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by a mysterious computer virus that has caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way through six stages (or more, via stretch goals) you can tackle in any order you choose, using weapons and abilities stolen from your enemies to take down your fellow Mighty Number robots and co
Cyberbullies, what are they and how to avoid them?Cyberbullies are today the biggest problem of the dA community, many members don't know how to deal with them or how to avoid being cyberbullied by a cyberbully. Best thing would be is to block him, write a journal about him, warn your friends to be aware of him in case if cyberbully attack them. Contact the antitheft groups or group which are dedicated for dealing with cyberbully problem. Fill a ticket to helpdesk and wait for admin of CEA Communication to assign your request and decide what to do with a cyberbully who harass you and your friend.Cyberbullies, what are they and how to avoid them?6 months ago in Personal More Like This
First of all what is cyberbullying? That is a question that many people ask and most of them don't know the answer, while some of them use a term cyberbully when somebody enforce them the rules of dA terms of service or telling them to take violation image down. This is a typical thing for a thief to say a member:

Reasons why Nintendo SHOULD buy CapcomI got a message from :iconmonsterman25: that there's a Mega Man themed Streetpass Mii Plaza puzzle for the Nintendo 3DS, and I google searched for some stuff hinting at Nintendo's intention to buy Mega Man, and I came across a site about Capcom's buyout since they're going belly-up in business so I figured: "Nintendo NEEDS to buy Capcom." "Why", you ask? Because Capcom has made a lot of shit on Nintendo's Systems more than on Microsoft, and Sony's. One dumb ass Xbox Fanboy on IGN called Nintendo too stupid to buy them, but what he doesn't know that if Microsoft buys Capcom, They'll just ruin the company, just like they did with Rare Ltd. I also found this petition for Nintendo Buying Capcom, and the maker of said petition needs at least 10,000 signatures for this. Please note that this is for Nintendo Fans only (If you are a Microsoft or Sony Fanboy, then get out of this journal): http://www.thepetitionsite.com/525/805/677/buy-capcom/ The reason why is Nintendo could boost their arsenaReasons why Nintendo SHOULD buy Capcom4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Phantom FreddyThis is for all those fans who are confused about :iconRenee-Moonveil:'s recent comic page, let me explain who Phantom Freddy is, and how he behavesPhantom Freddy2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Phantom Freddy is essentially the kindness and caring fragment of Golden Freddy, allow me to bring you into Phantom's past
Phantom is the ORIGINAL Freddy, the one who was built when the pizzeria opened up in 1977, for 10 years everything ran smoothly, until one day a teenager decided it would be funny if he poured soda into Freddy's mouth, unfortunately this caused Freddy to short-circuit and he bit the teenager's frontal lobe, causing the bite of '87, current Freddy...THE ONE WHO MERGED WITH GOLDEN FREDDY was built shortly after and Bonnie and Chica's memories of the original Freddy were erased, Foxy refused to let this happen, as Phantom is his dear friend, Phantom's costume was then dumped backstage until they could properly dispose of him, a short while later an insane guard found him and ripped out much of the circuits controlling Fre
Doujinshi Scans - Yu-Gi-Oh DM/GX/5d's/ZeXalI decided to give Yu-Gi-Oh doujinshi its own page, because I have quite a few doujinshi from this series now and it makes them easier to find for people specifically looking for Yu-Gi-Oh. If you can't view a page (i.e. the page gives as "you do not have permission to view this" page when you click the link) it just means that the doujinshi contains mature content so had to be marked as unsafe for minors. If you want to see any of the mature doujinshi send me a note either here or on LJ and I'll give you the links.Doujinshi Scans - Yu-Gi-Oh DM/GX/5d's/ZeXal3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I'm not terribly up to date all the time so you're better off using different platforms to find news... but I'll do my best!Miraculous Ladybug updates2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Miraculous Ladybug is a joint production between Zagtoon (France), Toei (Japan) and On Animation (Korea, previously Onyx and Method Animation). It follows the adventures of magical hero Marinette Cheng and her alter ego Ladybug. Set in Paris, Marinette acquires earrings and a Kwami (magical companion) named Tikki that allows her to be a superhero. Along for the ride is Chat Noir, another magical hero - and Marinette has no idea he's actually her school crush, Adrien. Likewise, he doesn't know that the spotty superheroine he hangs out with at night is actually the ordinary girl from his class... They fight against Hawk Moth and his minions the Akuma, who turn regular people into

BUT BOY DO I FEEL GOOD ABOUT MY ART.
and you should too!
Tips on becoming the artist you want to be
✸ note that these are tips on how I've started- everyone is different! Learn however you want to learn!
1. STOP DRAWING ONLY FOR OTHERS AND JUST START DRAWING FOR YOU
Ok so this for me was the hardest step. I never ever drew for enjoyment. Even when I drew my characters I wasn't really having fun? What you should do is stop all commissions. Stop all trades. And give yourself one day to draw to make you happy. Even if you don't improve at all you will start loving your art! I know I do!
2. FIND ART THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
What is better than finding a style that you really love? Than looking at all this art from people that inspires you? NOTHING. (okay maybe besides starbucks and kittens but still!)
when you fin
CEA Blog: How to Report an Underage DeviantHiya deviants!CEA Blog: How to Report an Underage Deviant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's always pretty unfortunate when we find a talented young artist here on dA when they are just too young to hold an account with us. Today I would like to talk about what to do when you stumble across a deviant that is under the age of 13 years old.
So what do we consider to be "underage" and what does dA do about it?
dA complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, meaning we prohibit any child under the age of 13 from opening and using a dA account. Even with parental permissions this restriction must stay in place.
When an underage kiddo is brought to our attention their account will be closed automatically. COPPA closed accounts are kept as they are until their owner reaches our minimum required age. Upon verification of their age their account can be restored to active status and all its contents will still be there.
For more information on what COPPA is please go here: COPPA.org.
So what do I do
Important notice about account securityThere was recently an incident on another website, completely unrelated to deviantART.com, that resulted in account email addresses and passwords for that site being leaked online. While the information was not deviantART-related, your deviantART account may be at risk if you use the same email address and password for multiple sites.Important notice about account security1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
To protect your deviantART account, we strongly suggest that you change your password.
When updating a password, create one that is complex and unique, making it impossible for would-be intruders to identify it, whether by educated guess or calculated attack.

Don't go to Art School!I have not been brave enough to utter that sentence- until today. Today is the day I read THIS GREAT ARTICLE by Noah Bradley: https://medium.com/i-m-h-o/138c5efd45e9 I have been more and more bothered by us artists paying for art schools that cost as much as Ivy League law schools (or more) only to come out of said schools not able to find art jobs to pay off the mounds of debt that has left school with you! This article also mirrors my own feelings: its not about the instructors (or very rarely). They are underpaid and under appreciated. Some don't have the proper art training but have replaced that with Master's degrees, which is a pet peeve of mine as far as the costs the students are paying for that instruction. But, again, that's not the instructor's fault. They were able to get that job because only those with Master's degrees can fill those positions. They worked for that degree, so good for them.

Ever wanted to +fav a journal? Well now you can!This is a feature that's been in the works for a little while now, and over the coming weeks will reshape the way that you see and submit content here on deviantaARTEver wanted to +fav a journal? Well now you can!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So what's this new feature?
At the moment, deviantART has many different types of content (e.g. journals, news and deviations) which are all different to use, located in different places, and produce completely different types of content.
The aim of this new feature is to unify all these systems, making them simpler to use and more consistent in appearance and functionality
How are we going to achieve this?
The most obvious and most widely used content you see on deviantART is Deviations. So the best way of merging all the current content into one, is to make Journals, News and Blogs into Deviations
Why is this better?
Apart from making content on deviantART simpler for new users, Journals and News will gain functions of deviations such as, favourites,

Hey guys! There's a bit of a nasty rumor spreading throughout the community that the staff will be removing 'wasted' accounts on May 21st, and that you should copy and paste the 'warning' to your journal if you want your account to be safe from deletion. This is totally false and should not be spread around dA. If you happen to see a misinformed deviant sharing that information in their journal feel free to link them to my journal here.
Any official dA news will be announced at hq. If you're receiving notes or comments about this false mass-deletion from an individual claiming to be deviantART staff, please block them and report them to the helpdesk. Thanks guys!

The Intrepid Quest of Kevin Eastman,
Defender of the Comics Realm
It’s a shame that most comics enthusiasts prowling the San Diego Convention Center during Comic-Con 2011 mostly or even only know Kevin Eastman as the co-creator (with Peter Laird) of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, not that being one of the authors of one of the most celebrated comics phenomena of all times would not be laurel enough for any creative artist to retire well-rested upon.
While the fan-beloved TMNT juggernaut still rampages along unabated, there’s quite a bit more to Kevin’s biography that deviants should be aware of – especially when wondering how much difference one lone artist’s efforts can make in building a better arts environment for all who would follow in his path.
Kevin was one of the band of independent comic book artists and writers who in 1988 authored the Crea
