art theft spread aroundhttp://vk.com/art.ideasart theft spread around9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I guess some of you might have already seen this in `loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses `loish, *andrahilde , *Apofiss, *boomerr and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist
tiny trades [CLOSED]these are closed for now please do not asktiny trades [CLOSED]4 months ago in Personal More Like This
For everyone I accepted trades with, you are welcome to draw anybody from this tag! These are small trades, don't feel obligated to do anything big or polished or anything, don't worry about spending more than maybe 30-40 minutes on it. That's about all the longer it takes me to do these and I'll feel guilty if you spend hours on something and I just draw you a little thing in return ahaha ;~;
My characters all have very flexible designs, feel free to modify them however you'd like! I encourage experimentation with my characters, it's interesting and it gives me new ideas for them /)w(\
I do my half after you've done yours! So, if you need to cancel the trade, it's not a problem at all! Just let me know uvu

Does anyone else remember being a baby?If so, I have a question:Does anyone else remember being a baby?6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I thought it was pretty common, but I've only met two other people who remember, including my mum. I remember a lot of things from when I was a baby, and from about two year old an onwards, everything is as clear as if it were yesterday.
My question is: Before you could recognize yourself in a mirror, what did you imagine yourself to look like? I thought I was a weird grey toad thing in a tuxedo with massive lips and mickey mouse gloves. But I would like to know what other people thought.
More art is coming, in a bit of a block right now unfortunately.

How to make money outside and inside DeviantArtThis is meant more for younger, newer deviants who have run into a spot of trouble making some extra cash,How to make money outside and inside DeviantArt3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I see many people posting how they make no money on their prints through DeviantArt.
To me, it just seems like all you need is a lesson in business.
First, before you do anything, realize what our "Target Audience" is.
Do you draw anime? Or do you take pictures of cute animals? Or are you into realism? Let's face it, you aren't going to find very many older people who enjoy fine art on the internet. Try and figure out what age group your work appeals to.
Second, use DeviantArt as your "Warehouse"
DeviantArt is great. You can showcase your products and then ship them to people without you doing anything. However it is an Art Community. In DeviantArt, you work is only shown to other artists, to get more money you have to use DeviantArt as your Warehouse. It will supply the customer, but you need to bring the customer to the site.
Deviantart is fairly appealing, but lets face it, man
Premium Content HasslesAll I wanted to do was try out the premium content feature by uploading the lineart to a recent pony picture for others to color. Sounds simple right?Premium Content Hassles11 months ago in Personal More Like This
First, uploading the full sized TIFF resulted in the full sized TIFF being what everyone could see when you clicked the image, rather than giving me image size options like it usually does... forcing me to delete it and try again.
To upload the TIFF as premium content but not display the TIFF, I had to upload it as a smaller JPG first, then uncheck download as premium content, and upload the TIFF to that stupid sta.sh thingy... which apparently doesn't LIKE full sized TIFF files. It kept freezing up while trying to upload it.
When I finally got it uploaded, suddenly sta.sh had some problems with zipping the file up... telling me to delete it and try again. Forcing me to, once again, start over from scratch.
This time I uploaded the preview image as a JPG, uploaded the premium content as a PNG instead of a TIFF, and finally everything wor

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true. Ever since way back when I started with my couple of watchers right up to this moment with over 19'000 watchers, breaking the 1'000'000 pageview milestone and having amassed over 10'000'000 hits, logging into this account and seeing many, many supportive remarks and friendly comments, watching the favourites rise steadfastly on each deviation, seeing others willing to try improve their own, or return, to drawing (Despite the fact that I still do not wish to be titled as a
Battleship (the movie)I didn't get to see Battleship in theaters, but I heard all the aftermath of it. The endless memes making fun of the fact they shoehorned in Aliens, the criticism that the aliens were just weird looking humans, the fact that it's based on a board game... I heard all of that before I saw the movie, and I anticipated that I was gonna hate it.Battleship (the movie)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But you know what? It's actually a lot of fun. The action is intense, the special effects are top notch, the acting isn't too corny or eye-rolling, and it pretty much delivers on everything that you'd expect a board game inspired movie would feature.
What I liked most was how the special effects were actually on display. It wasn't like Transformers where you can never tell what the eff is going on. While there are some odd camera zooms during the action, the action itself is always framed in such a way that you can tell what's going on at all times. I like action movies like that. I hate action movies that utilize shaky cams and rapid cutting to giv
Why I Draw Women OftenI recently got a message, and I will slightly reword it so as not to cause profane friction, nor will I state who it came from, but it read like this: "Why is everything you post regarding a woman? I think it's very sexist when the only thing you can draw are breasts and buttocks like it's the only thing in the world."Why I Draw Women Often1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, so by now, if you haven't been watching me for a good minute, you know that I really like to draw women, and I like portraying the female form, usually and often in a tasteful manner. I could hypothetically end that question there and just answer "I wasn't aware everything in my gallery was a woman or had breasts and a butt" and then post a picture or two of Rai Rivet... But I'm not going to do that. I'm going to explain my stance on drawing the female form and my adoration for it.

Sketchbook Pro 6So most of you know that I'm a Sketchbook Pro user.Sketchbook Pro 61 year ago in Personal More Like This
A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:

The main brush toolbar itself has a click-and-drag function, allowing you to store all your often-used brushes in each of the "lanes". You then can click the button on the upper-right and then a fu

Now bullet points of info from the interview.
There will be some “supernatural” IE spiritual events here
Some of the political situation from The Promise will continue here
The Search focuses mainly on Zuko and Azula, Aang and co will be present, but the royal siblings drive the story.
Zuko will continue to adapt to his role as Fire Lord
The Search takes place immediately after The Promise ends
Gene Yang and Team Gurihiru remain as the creative team
We will see how Azula’s stay in the mental institution has affected her
Katara and Aang’s relationship will develop more, but will be a very minor aspect of the story
Toph also only plays a minor role
Exposure, Getting Better, & Having the ChopsEXPOSURE & GETTING BETTER AT WHAT YOU DOExposure, Getting Better, & Having the Chops2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm only going off of my own personal experiences talking about these few things. (And I'm not specifically talking about ONLY dA here.) So take it with as many grains of salt as you can.
I've recently been asked questions like "How do I get people to see my work?", "Why am I not receiving commission inquiries?", "Why isn't anyone following my work?", "What can I do to get better?". Often, and I answered it before, the answer is as simple as this:
Create, as in, DRAW. PAINT. RENDER. SCULPT. You have to do develop a tolerance (or the obvious definition: LOVE) for creating if you want exposure and to get better. You have to LOVE the drawing or illustration that you HATE how it came out in the end. You have to ask yourself after every piece, what could I have done to do that differently. And you have to do this frequently.
Some folks come on the scene, post once or twice a week, and expect an audience to flock yo

2. the winner's full name will be in the credits.
3. This character will be copyrighted primarily to this game, you are allowed to use the artwork for your portfolio, but may be a bit complicated if you want to sell him/her off to a new client. Details of copyright can be discussed with the winner.

Arc 1 SummaryHello again, everyone! It seems that Callahan can’t seem to leave well enough alone, and has bugged me to compile a list of the more important goings-ons that each of the three guilds here in Tao have been up to since the past year or so. I was hoping it wouldn’t be too much, but it looks like I was wrong... In fact, it looks like all the guilds here have managed to accomplish a great deal since the beginning, much to my dismay. You guys have no idea how cluttered Callahan’s office is, he doesn’t organize anything! He told me to do it myself if it bothered me so much, but he’s not getting free labor out of me. Well, additional free labor, I guess, as I’m not really... being paid to do this. Not with money, anyway; he says that the opportunity to “pore over and absorb such a rich and vibrant history following the creation of the three guilds should be more than enough payment”. He’s full of it, but I can’t complain.Arc 1 Summary10 months ago in Personal More Like This
