To Watermark or To Not Watermark.....A few questions to ask yourself first.To Watermark or To Not Watermark.....8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A. Do you value your own artwork?
B. Are you proud to tell the world you created your own artwork?
C. Do you value other peoples artwork enough to not steal?
The answer to all of these should be YES! (If its no MySpace is that way --> )
Its a sad fact but un-watermarked large pictures are a rippers dream come true... DA is a proven gold mine for anybody wanting to take up art theft as a hobby, and just because you have a written disclaimer in your description stating that your artwork is not to be redistributed hardly makes a difference. Anybody who has browsed the net or received a dreaded note stating that your art has been ripped will know intimately how disheartening and sickening it is, and what an almost futile fight it is to try and get the artwork removed or the ripper shut down. Watermarks don't have to be horrible clunky things that destroy the artwork its supposed to be protecting, and they really could mean
How to make UTAU english & create an UTAUloidOkay, so this is a tutorial on how to make your own utauloid and how to make the program UTAU English. First off, to you new creators out there, do not make your characters look like vocaloids; it's stupid and not very creative. Make your own designs. What you'll need is a microphone, a program that records, and a folder with the name of your UTAUloid. You'll also need to know how to pronounce the language you want to do.How to make UTAU english & create an UTAUloid4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since my utauloid is Japanese, most of my helping will lean towards the Japanese voice bank making. Your recordings need to clear and not too loud. This is just a rumor that I've been hearing, but apparently if you make your recordings 5 seconds long, then your utauloid will sound good. Idk if that's true but just make sure that your recordings aren't too short and not too long. Notice that once u have stopped recording you'll see a line or no sounds. They show up when u haven't recorded something or you're finished. Please remove those so that only you recordings sta

Myths of Unova AU Contest [CLOSED FOR JUDGING]UPDATE: THE CONTEST IS CLOSED FROM SUBMISSIONS! Judging is underway and we will get the results back to you guys asap! Thank you for all who participated <3Myths of Unova AU Contest [CLOSED FOR JUDGING]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! It's Ky-nim here with a fun new contest! We're gonna go for some AU/ALTERNATE UNIVERSE SHENANIGANS.
Just in case you are confused, an AU (alternate universe) is defined as stories/works that explore the what-ifs arising from different circumstances. Some of the more popular AUs seen are set in High School, a zombie apocalypse, Victorian England, and even role reversal universes (i.e the MC is the enemy and vice versa). Others take on a more crossover-y nature, by having AUs in other fandom-related settings such as AUs in the Avengers-verse, SnK-verse, Pacific Rim-verse etc.
Sounds like a fun contest and want to participate? Awesome! Here are some guidelines for the contest.
Think of an AU you would like to see the Myths of Unova cast be in (do whatever you want!)

How to Authenticate/Confirm your Account!
For New accounts, accounts used just for uploading your adopts and accounts with a small gallery.
I know this may be annoying or seem unnecessary to some, but honestly, we feel it is needed. It has come to our attention that through the adopt-community, a lot of stealing is going on. Folks making new accounts, steal someone's created adopt sheet, submit it and sell it off for points. Now the pet is sold to 2 people. This of course creates a whirl-wind of mess and frustration. We at Point-Adopts are trying to do our best to help our members not have to worry about ending up in that type of mess. Thus this precaution was born to help weed out those with the wrong intent.

2: It only works for certain people only people he likes if he doesn't like you or you have angered him don't pull it that's a big no no he can kill you he has a bat full of nails you know
3: If you do decide to pull it there is more than one reaction ; if he moans instantly that doesn't mean that he is turned on just yet that meas you have to work more, but now if you pull it and he growls at you that means he is completely turned on and will do anything that comes to hi mind and wont be able to stop until the affect has wore off

TOP 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL POKEMON!
Butterfree are pretty pokemon, but Beautifly took the pretty butterfly idea to a different level. I chose this beaty for its similarity to the real insect and the far more thought out wing design.
The world of pokemon had lacked hero pokemon that looked like girls having in mind Jynx is FAR from looking like a heroine Two generations passed before we got to see Gardevoir, and now Lopunny keeps us ready for some good Fanfic ideas with a beautiful design that keeps things simple, feminine, and fluffy.
Where Umbreon is cool, Espeon is beautiful. The first generation had kept Eevees evolutions similar to foxes, and Umbreon still looks like a fox as well, but Espeon has more of the elegance and body shape of a cat. This design I received very open handed since Persian and Meowth are far from pretty a

Regarding the Boston Marathon BombingI've tried to write this journal a few times, but I am having trouble finding words.Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in Massachusetts, so Boston is "my home" when I travel and the city that I most strongly associate with myself. I'm mad. I don't know how to feel about things like this other than to be mad. In an age of immediate and 24 news, it's hard to not know who or why, and endlessly frustrating to watch people fight and blame without any factual information.
I do love the quote from Fred Rogers that has been going around. But I also think about the words of people like George Carlin. Is this just how we live now? I feel like people my age, who were teens during 9/11, live our lives just assuming that any and every day there's a chance we could be violently and senselessly killed by a random act of violence. Does that mean that the people who do these things have succeeded?

When I'm looking through books in a brick and mortar store, I flip to the middle of a book for some reason and then put it on the shelf as if I ever had any intention of buying it (I don't know what compels me to buy a book anymore, to be honest). HOWEVER...
When I am here at deviantART, our supercool scrolling thumb feature allows me to see the first sentence of a story and make the determination on whether or not I want to continue reading. That said... I don't read much around here.
Boy, rhetoric is fun. We know why.
I don't judge a book by its cover but goddamn I will judge a story by its first line. It's called a "hook" for a reason. No one wants to read your story if your opening sentence is
