Commissions FOREVER OPEN to save for Sam's TripCommissions FOREVER OPEN to save for Sam's Trip2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello Everyone! <3
I am opening commissions/donations to help raise money for hotel/dinner expenses for my dear :iconshoelesscosmonaut: when he comes to visit this summer. My parents won't let him stay with us and the cheapest hotel I found nearby is $64USD a night. He is planning on staying 2 weeks and the amount of money we need to raise is insane. But with only working 2 days a week I do not have nearly enough money. So to help the expenses I am PERMANENTLY opening commissions until we raise enough. If you are interesting in commissioning me please take a look at my prices here
or if you are just wanting to be AMAZING and donate any amount my paypal is Tab10Art@aol.com.
I am taking on 5 commissions at a time but am keeping a running list of those interested.

You have a problem.
Don't tell me you don't have problems.
Everyone has problems.
Determine what your biggest problem is.
Don't have a big problem? Too scared to admit it?
You can start smaller- How about a small problem?
How about something that concerns/bothers/confuses you today/this week/recently?
Come up with a bunch of keywords that describe your problem.
STEP 2: Ask google for solution to your problem.
Google your question using ALL the possible keyword combinations that your problem relates to or has in it.
See if anyone already has a similar problem or has already resolved it.
Take 3 hours if you must.
Finding correct information can get tough, especially if it is obscure, hidden, answered incorrectly or has conflicting answers.
Answers without proper sources or evidence are generally incorrect and should be disregarded.
If there are too many conflicting solutions and opposing answers and you're not sure which is correct,

Orange Ribbon Day!!As some of you may know, April 13th, along with being many other important things (4/13, John's birthday, update day, yeah), is an event called Orange Ribbon Day. Here is the post for those unfamiliar with it:Orange Ribbon Day!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I saw this post going around and thought it was a really great idea! Now I know this can be an every day thing, but what if we chose one day that all the homestucks would wear an orange ribbon for sure?
“What day should we wear it” you might ask. Well, how Does April 13th sound? The fateful day homestuck began as well as our very first kids first day of existence!
So We can think of this as a meetup day!!
Where: ANY PUBLIC PLACE!! (mall, taco bell, Pizza hut, combination taco bell and pizza hut. wherever!)
Time: ALL DAY!!
What to wear? At least wear the Orange ribbon. If you want to wear anything else, its up to you.
So a little summary:
Wear Orange Ribbon
Go into public
Meet other Homestuck
Have lunch/ become friends
Talk about OTPs

*deep breath* Okay, I'm going off on a tangent, so bare with me. It is very worth reading this to the end!!! I know that it is really long, but I feel like I might explode.
Alrighty, today I met Benedict Cumberbatch. I'm trying to be very calm, but I'm just buzzing with excitement. While waiting outside for the event to begin, and the people who were working for it that day called today, "Benedict Day." It was awesome. I had a picture, two autographs (one wasn't for me, for a family friend and her kids who are absolutely beautiful) and the fucking awesome Q & A. First off, Benedict was absolutely fucking beautiful. I was absolutely shaking so goddamn much when I was waiting in line for the photo, I just couldn't believe it (I still can't). I saw the top of his head beforehand, and just that sent my heart into a spiral, so you can't possibly imagine the feelings when I saw him face to face for t
Night Raiders - PVP - Updated for 13w02bI decided to check up on what's being added to Minecraft for the next big update and in the latest snapshot there is a new kind of block... a Day/Night detector block!Night Raiders - PVP - Updated for 13w02b2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Naturally the first thing I did was load up my old Night Raiders PVP map and rework the redstone wiring. Originally to detect the day/night cycle I had to rely on Testificates, which was very inconsistent and used a ton of redstone. Now with this new block all that was removed and it's just a direct link to the doors. Much easier now!
Please keep in mind this version only works with snapshot 13w02b and higher, so if you want to play it you need to update your minecraft to the new snapshot. You can follow this http://mojang.com/ to download the .jar file to update if you need it.
As for the map... please follow this http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/night-raiders---v10/ for where you can download it. I'd be curious to see if the new day/night system works better for y'all.

Don't like the new DA?Yuck! The new DA layout looks terrible! I mean, why on Earth do we need a huge search and submit bar? And who even uses the shop and more features?

So, I went and used rotane's and problem solved! Now my icon and messages are back in the center where they should be, and it looks so much better!
The overall DA format is still different though, but at least it looks a lot more pleasing to the eye. I highly suggest for everyone who hates the new layout to click the thumbnail above and follow the install instructions.
Thank you so much rotane!

Tutorial Showcase #1DeviantART is a great place to find not only art but also some awesome tutorials. It doesn't matter if you are interested in photo manipulation or writing, usually there is a tutorial for that. But at the same time there are so many great tutorials outside of deviantART and most deviantART users might never find them unless someone shows these tutorials to them. So I'm happy to introduce you a new journal series called "Tutorial Showcase" which features some awesome tutorials outside of deviantART. We first started with this series in TutorialsForYou but we decided that you might want to see some tutorials as well. System is pretty simple. Every showcase journal showcases five tutorials from a specific category and this category changes with every new journal. There's no special placement, all of them are equal. So here we go!Tutorial Showcase #12 years ago in Personal More Like This

ProgressArtistic slumps, and slumps in general, are a unpleasant part of life that many of us have had to endure. I think the impact of a slump depends upon how we handle it. As a few of you are aware, I have been in a slump since the 2012 holidays. To help relieve the effect of the slump I finally remembered advice I have given to and received from others:Progress2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Go to a museum/gallery/website and look at other art.
Clean your workspace for art making.
Make random marks, doodles, sketches. Just do. Making art for just the sake of making it can pull one out of a creative slump.
Surround one self with other creative people.
Do not over think art making.
Change your scenery (this could go along with cleaning one's workspace).
Take a journey. You do not have to go far. A journey could take take place near where you live.
I cannot remember all the suggestions so feel free to add to the list.
Though I have been in a slump, it does not mean I can stop work. I have agreed to paint a wolf statue (Howl for UW

Writing a Six Word Story3wyl recently posted a SixWordStories journal asking members how they write their stories, and she has kindly allowed me this opportunity to talk in a little more detail about my particular writing process. This blog isn’t meant to be a tutorial or even suggestions as to how to write your own. It’s really just a chance for me to discuss a subject that’s become very important to me.Writing a Six Word Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, to start off with, I like to read other people’s work. It’s what I did before I ever began writing my own six word stories, and I still do it to inspire myself. Sometimes someone else’s story will directly lead to one of my own. (And then I credit story and author in my notes.) But generally it’s not as definite as that. Seeing what others are doing sparks off ideas and sends me in a fresh direction.
Prompts assist me a great deal as well. The m
WELCOME BACK KANGINThats right! You heard correctly! Today is the day our dear racoon finally comes back to us from the army.WELCOME BACK KANGIN3 years ago in Personal More Like This
first lets look back at his short journey...
two years ago our dear #1 Handsome guy went through some hard stuff. He then decided join the army after a few months.
Our oppa made his last appearance at a fanmeet. He surprised all of us with his heartfelt goodbye to the ELFs and his members. We were mostly brought to tears but we knew we had to let him do this.
He left with the promise to return as a better man and by then all we could do was wait . . .
Two years have passed and our Kangin has progressed undeniably.
He lost weight but gained some muscle.
We saw him smile as he served his country.
He even carried on the responsibility of helping flood victims.
And was given a rank promotion.
He was the first SJ member to leave and though he was absent in the live perfs, the mvs, the concerts and SJ activities, He has always been with us in heart.
And now he is the first to re
Woofs Are Serious, So SeriousThis is something I've said before, but that was probably well over a year ago when there were less people to see it.Woofs Are Serious, So Serious3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't want people to stop drawing. Anyone, no matter how doofy or weird.
Bad art is still art, and I love bad art.
I don't hate ANY of the art I redraw or fav. All of it brings a smile to my face and it's always a sadness when it gets deleted due to flooding.
I don't redraw things to "make a statement" or "stick it" to someone, I do it because it's funny to me. And sometimes it's funny to me to redraw something by an obvious bait account or something "not that bad".
None of my work is malicious, it was all done with a light heart.
Woofs are for shits and giggles, a woof is not a weapon.
Bad art doesn't lower DA's quality, NON-art lowers its quality. Screenshots, traced bases, demotivationals, photobucket dumps, these are anti-art. Nothing new was created, only submitted. In the case of traced bases; de-created and submitted.
So please settle down a bit when you
