Deviousness Award saayyyyyy wwwhaaaaaaatDeviousness Award1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm in Japan on vacation right now so I don't get to check in on my websites too much but I did just now and noticed I got a ... a Deviousness award :0
:0 :0 ;0
It especially means a lot since I owe so much to DeviantArt. I can sincerely say I owe my career to this website, its thanks to them I've had job offers who led to me working in the video game industry at a pretty young age, thanks to them I've gotten magazines to notice me and commission workshops, thanks to them I was able to find smaller gigs early on and so much more. I've met awesome people here, constantly find new inspirations and best of all, am able to share with others my passion for art.
My life would be quite different without DeviantArt.
SO, A MASSIVE THANK YOU!
Here is a tutorial on shading while we're at it
Cheers from Kyoto!
Publishing ScamsCopied and pasted from my blog since deviantART's been having this problem for a while now. I had meant to post something on this matter back in October since it was when I noticed more and more "publishers" like this popping up on the site, but never got around to it. Of course, with all of these unprofessional publishers coming out of the woodwork again recently, I thought I'd share what I shared on my blog here.Publishing Scams2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What is a scam publisher?
Essentially, a scam publisher is a press that cheats authors into believing that they are getting traditionally published by their rules and guidelines. However, if you read the fine print, you'll see that "traditionally" publishing you is not at all what's happening. This can range from promising royalties which never come, making you pay a fee to be published, or even stem from lack of professionalism. While the term "scam" usually means forcing you to pay, there are many other

Journal Skin Commissions - 2 Spots open!UPDATE: Open for two more spots!Journal Skin Commissions - 2 Spots open!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since the poll so far seems to be showing that the majority would rather I open only 1 or two spots and still do both the code and graphics myself, I'll be doing so .
My reasoning for only opening 1 or two is to keep my stress load down to a minimum. I enjoy taking commission work but too much going on at once puts too much stress on my shoulders and I end up wanting to not do any of it at all. So fewer things at a time is better .
I will only be opening two spots for now. These spots will NOT be first come first serve. I would rather find a commission or two I'd enjoy doing than just take what comes and end up unhappy with what i'm creating.

Dragontalia AU - The Dragon Species(This is MY interpretation of how some characters from Hetalia may look as dragons, and how their specific species differentiate from each other based off of their respective regions.

THE NORTH AMERICAN FIRE DRAKE
Height: 15 - 18 ft
The North American Fire Drake is one of the more common dragons to find on this continent, and typically make their homes within the deserts or high above in caves of mountains. In times before the land was so vastly populated, the Fire Drake quite commonly would hoard gold and various minerals in their abodes, so that their hatchlings could consume it and harden their scales faster. Though their scales naturally harden over time, the minerals quicken the pace, heightening the chances of the hatchling's survival in the wild.
The Fire Drake is a very social creat

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

Better safe than sorryThis hacker has been going around making a name for himself on the site. He'll hack into your account, but lay low for at least a week. You never even know he's there until you startseeing pictures of Thomas the Tank Enginesaved onto your sta.sh. This will continue for a little while until a journal with the title "It's Too Late" is posted on your profile. The journal will be nothing but the lyrics to "Hungry Like The Wolf" by Duran Duran. Then he will change your password and begin sending notes to your watchers asking them for sexual favors in return for stock in Slim Jims. He will post poorly drawn My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fan art on your profile, most of which involve Pinkie Pie reciting passages from The Old Testament while wearing various outfits from 1970's Sears catalogs. After five days time he will delete at least 4 of your watchers randomly and tag every single person that YOU watch in almost every post.

HTML Text Codes, Tips and Tricks for dAAbout a year ago I posted a news article called "Making Your Comments Look Nice". Since then I have found out many other codes that I think would be helpful to share with other deviants who may not know them, or are just looking for some new codes to spiff up their journals and comments! However, I can't say I have ALL of the codes available on deviantART. I just have posted the ones I have heard of. If you have any new ones not listed here, feel free to comment with them.HTML Text Codes, Tips and Tricks for dA6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You can also check out the deviantART FAQ, which has info on these codes as well: :faq104:
To start things off, let's learn how to make these HTML codes work (:
In order to make a code work, you must use this format:
For example, if I put b into the format I showed you, it will come out as .
This will then allow me to type in bold font!
If you only want to put a code onto ONE word, you would have to do this: My name is Bob, nice to meet you.
