Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.Site Update: Premium Content Platform3 years ago in Personal More Like This
DeviantART is proud to announce our Premium Content Platform — providing the ability for content creators to become sellers and generate real earnings by making digital files of their high-quality work available for download. Sellers are able to set their own prices while retaining 80% of all revenue earned, and buyers are able to quickly get the things they want with the satisfaction of supporting the artists they love.
Where to get feedbackSadly, this group isn't a good place to get critique on your art. We honestly don't have the time to explain our reasons for the amount of submissions we get. So instead of individually responding to everyone, we're putting together a list of places on dA where you can get feedback.Where to get feedback5 years ago in Personal More Like This

RedlinePlease - Have people trace over your work with slight improvements.
theWrittenRevolution - Feedback and stuff for writers.
GetWatchers - Get more exposure, and therefore more critique.
GimmeFeedback - ...a group for feedback!
UnCritic - Unofficial critics, like the critique feature, but for everyone.

Whit's Character Design Contest- ResultsRESULTSWhit's Character Design Contest- Results3 years ago in Personal More Like This
TO ALL WINNERS: The list of prizes are below, note me regarding claiming these
prizes. For the features, note me regarding pieces you'd like me to feature.
Sorry, I decided on a winner for a week or so now, just haven't had the chance
to post a results journal. So here are the wonderful entries:
I believe this is a great redesign of the original outfit and it has a great layout,
with comments and illustrations to clearly show the outfit's design. I fell in love
with the design and it's components, color schemes, and details. I can't wait
to draw Sunozone in that outfit!
I loved this so much, it was so hard to choose the other outfit over this one. I
love the tomboy look and how it stood out against the others. I loved the
goggles, shirt design, but most of all, those amazing pants!

Operation MCRmy- Please read.I don't know how many of you have heard of this, but, something really terrible happened recently.Operation MCRmy- Please read.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
From what I know (which isn't much), somebody, presumably a 'fan' sent a fanfic- incest, no less, I'm pretty sure it was a Baycest (BanditxMikey or BanditxGerard) to Gerard and Lyn-Z's house.
Now, they're moving. (from what I know, don't shoot me or something if this information isn't all correct- everything about it is pretty foggy and general. Basically somebody sent an incest fanfiction to Gerard and Lyn-Z's home, it obviously upset them a lot.)
Guys, to put it simply....this fanbase is going out of control.
Just....okay, read this for starters: http://mcrdeviantclub.deviantart.com/journal/Stalking-vs-Normal-Fan-Behavior-316375329
The guys (and their kids and wives) really deserve an apology. I'm seriously disgusted by some of the things people have done to them.
And before you say that I'm being completely hypocritical because seriously, look at the name of this group omg- No, I'm not

What I think about fanfiction.Be warned, I might offend some people with this.What I think about fanfiction.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But I'm still going to write it, you've been warned.
What I think about fanfiction.
Okay, so, some of you are probably thinking:
Well, why does she have to have an opinion about fanfiction that's so important that she's writing a journal about it? I mean, she writes it, it can't be too different from most other people who read/write it. Right?
So...I'm writing this journal because of all the really horrible things that have happened to MCR in the fanbase lately, the possible (I don't know what actually happened) sending of incest fanfiction to Gerard and Lyn-Z's house, and the stalking going on, and just...all the objectification.
Guys, this is wrong.
And I'm going to go off on a tangent here, and this is the tangent that might offend some of you.
Don't yell at me. It's my opinion, you can go somewhere and cool off and continue thinking what you think and liking what you like, if you want.

Just a few things about killjoysOkay guys, I just wanted to write this up to help anyone who isn’t familiar with how the climate of the Californian desert can effect different skin tones, and various other things about living out here. I live in a fairly small town between LA and San Diego, moreso towards San Diego, it’s smack dab in the middle of the desert. Summer temperatures usually range form 88-105 degrees during daylight and 30-40 degrees at night.Just a few things about killjoys3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The difference between our heat here and let’s say in Florida is, ours is a dry heat. You can head outside and hang out without sweating. But the draw back is it tends to dry out skin, hair, nails, etc. So even if you sit inside you’ll dry out without a humidifier, and I highly doubt those would be easy to come back in post-apocalyptic 2019. Because of the heat you tend to sweat a lot, sweat leads to breakouts, and breakouts lead to apply profuse amounts of makeup, causing worse breakouts. So more than likely inhabitants skin m

A lot of people I have seen not only here, but on Twitter & Tumblr say they love PARAMORE..when they really only love Hayley Williams. HAYLEY WILLIAMS IS NOT PARAMORE. Please try to understand this. You are not a real parawhore if you only know the lead singers name! Just saying. It is true! Hayley Williams even changed her Twitter name to "Hayley Williams in Paramore" because everyone keeps giving her all the attention. THERE WOULD BE NO PARAMORE WITHOUT JEREMY OR TAYLOR. Just saying!

Killjoy Name-maker :DJust a random idea I had sometime ago...Killjoy Name-maker :D5 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who might have trouble thinking of a killjoy name for yourself or are just bored feel free to use it!
The name might sound odd or something, so if you want you can just mess around with the names. Just thought this would be cool.
Okay, this is the first part of your name. If your first name starts with the first letter here, the first part of your killjoy name is word next to it.
Now the second part of your name. If your last name starts with the first letter here, the word next to it is the last part of your killjoy name.
hello~So, I assume most, if not all of you, have seen Gerard's post.hello~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly, yes. My Chemical Romance is done making music. He was slipping back into depression and we don't even know if the rest were or not, but I'm sure none of us want him like that. We hate being depressed ourselves, and having one of the people whom we look up to be depressed would only make us feel worse. And, even if you've never seen them, I know you would not want to see them if it meant them acting happy one stage and playing with absolutely no emotion.
That being said, they did not 'break up' or even go their separate ways. They just stopped when it was time, a 'fail-safe' as Gerard called it. One that was formed when the band formed. They're still friends and love each other like they always did. And they still love us, the fans. Their music will always live on and we will always love them, even years down the road. They'll still be buried deep in our hearts.
My stomach feels like it's in knots that can never come

I don't know how many of you have seen this, but it's adorable and FRANK. Look at Frank's hair! It's so much longer and fluffier and gah finally. I was so mad when he shaved his head, and so was my Frankie xD
Also Ray's arm. Look. It's just like...he has a perfect arm.
And Mikey's back to silent poker face, holding the kerrang award importantly, yes c: Looking fashionable xD
And Gerard is adorable. Hand gestures and brown hair and all.
BioillustrationIntroductionBioillustration1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Bioillustrations has been around for years, but lately it's become more of a hot topic. Some universities have added degree programs in Bioillustration including University of Florida. Other universities have established programs such as Iowa State University, University of Toronto, John Hopkins University(whose medical and biological illustration program just celebrated it's 100th anniversary).
What is Bioillustration? It is the illustration of biological concepts and principles. Bioillustration is all around you. Open a biology or medical textbook, all the diagrams and figures are bioillustration.
For as long as there has been science, people have been devising ways to share their discoveries. The history of Bioillustration is hard to track down since it is not as widely studied. Instead of giving a history, I'm going to share about different historic artists and biologi
Bad Side Of ParamoreGuys I know this is old news but I want to break this down.Bad Side Of Paramore3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is Josh Farro's blog about Hayley Williams.....Enjoy???
"Let me start by apologizing to you for the way everything went down on Saturday. I had a statement typed ready to post to you guys but Hayley released one without my permission. We were not going to issue a statement until we worked out our exit agreement with Hayley. I wish it didn't have to happen that way, Zac and I wanted to be the ones you heard it from. I want to be honest with you guys about how this band formulated from day one. I did not think Hayley's version told the whole story, at least from our perspective and hopefully this will explain a bit about why we are leaving.
Zac and I had a garage band in high school with the intentions of just making music for the love of it. We met Taylor and our friend Jason Clark at our school

Important IssueHey everyone!Important Issue3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just split up with my husband. Today was the day I took a clean sweep and got rid of all the things that remained from our past. It is strange and sad to be aware of my current situation. But it is time to start a new life.
Why I tell you all this? Not to get compassion from you...
...but because shit happens.To everyone. What I wanna let you know is that if you have to go through a difficult situation...
don't stop remembering the good things which are worth living for. Start a clean sweep in YOUR life too!!!! The things that help me are...
1. My daughter. I love her dearly. She is the most important thing in my life!
2. My art. My passion to draw and my only income for us to survive.
3. The knowledge that even if life is cruel and unfair sometimes it is up to me to change it to something good.
This little video touched my heart and you should have a look on it. Let's make the world a better place with small things we can change!

Sometimes you get a job offer with the tiny problem of microscopic payment (if any payment at all) or you are already IN a project and get tons of change requests and end up with an hourly rate that makes you weep. And mostly not in enjoyment.Shanghai NO2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Or you get the puppy-eye look for "a favour" and in the end you end up doing things you didn't really want and spending weeks of your free time on it. And it leaves a sour aftertaste because you think "Dang, why didn't I...?"
Yes... why haven't you?
I have to admit the "we need ten million changes" problem is still a problem I face mostly on a daily base. It's okay if you get payed for it. Gods, I'll do a million changes if it gets payed and if these changes are reasonable. :iconengelszorn: and I experienced such a "we need changes" problem and in the end it was a mixture of fine negotiation, making a lot of compromises and doing (bearable) changes. But within boundaries. Because you rea
