2 Years of Relativity!Okay, it's actually 4 years if you count how long we've been working on it. But then, again, who's counting?2 Years of Relativity!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Of course, what do we do to celebrate the anniversary of a literature series? We feature ART! Yes, while Relativity is a fiction serial, art is an integral part of the experience. I mean, who doesn't like to see pretty pictures. Thankfully, several artists were wonderful enough to work with us to get some very special pieces to celebrate. Some you might have seen already, others are brand-spanking new!
The official cover of the first anthology (Book 2 in the series). This book will be available on Amazon.com in the next day or two--if you'd like to purchase a copy to help support the series. Or if you can't afford it, or just don't want to shell out the dough, you can get a free copy on Blacktorrent.us!
The cover-art and layout was done by the amazing FranciscoETCHART. His art has been such a huge inspiration to us, and has inspired so many other a
December EMTC! + 15 Entries! + CLOSED!Holidays creeped up on me and my little EMTC may have been neglected for a bit. I am happy with the turnout, though. Judging will commence shortly!December EMTC! + 15 Entries! + CLOSED!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Originally, I was going to theme this month "Snowmen" as my oldest, Dylan, has told me all he wants for Christmas is a snowman. However, I realized this might be a tad limiting. So, I broadened it a bit...and decided on snow! Whether it's snow angels, blizzards, a light dusting....really, there are quite a few ways you can go with this. And did I mention my old obsession, snowglobes? Let's help me feel a little more festive (61 F in December?? Really?) by freezing as many tiny balls as possible.
Only new submissions for this. The emote must be submitted after the theme has been announced.
You can enter as many times as you want.
Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. futureI am proud to present you my first "official" Emoticon Contest.Emoticon Contest: past vs. present vs. future3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
At first I want to tell you something about the theme:
As you have read the theme is past vs. present vs. future, this means your entry has to include something from the past, present and future. The time isn't set, this means that the past could be just 1 day ago or 100 years ago it's the same with the future. For example: you could display how the emotes have lived in the past how they are living now and how they could live in the future.
Be creative and surprise me with your imagination
The Contest is divided into 2 Categories:
The first Category will be for deviants who would like to work alone. And the second category is for deviants who want to work with somebody (a collaboration category ;D) 2 deviants can work together.
But you could also enter in both categories!
Below you can find the rules of each category and what you have to keep in mind.
Minecraft sold to Microsoft - Notch LeavingSo the news this morning was that Notch, creator of the wildly successful Minecraft, not only sold Mojang to Microsoft, but he’s also stepping down from Mojang. Microsoft acquired the company for 2.5 BILLION dollars. You can read his post and what it’ll mean to the future of Mojang here: https://mojang.com/2014/09/yes-were-being-bought-by-microsoft/Minecraft sold to Microsoft - Notch Leaving7 months ago in Personal More Like This
However, that’s only one part of the story. Notch stepping down from Mojang is a little more complicated. He mentioned that he’s realized that he’s becoming a symbol for people, not a person, and as a result he gets drawn into a lot of debate or blamed for things he never said or did. He cited this video as a good example of what his life has become recently:
I watched the This is Phil Fish video on YouTube and started to realize I didn’t have the connection to my fans I thought I had. I’ve become a symbol. I don’t want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I don

When art news happens around the world, deviant artists are among the first to respond in the most evocative ways possible.

In celebration of the release of sta.sh writer comments, which allows you to use Community Emoticons in the Comments (Read more about it here: [link])
I decided to host a Contest just for Chat friendly Emotes.
The main goal of this Contest is to provide more chat friendly Emotes for the Community. The Judges can also participate in the contest, but they aren't eligible to win.
Chat Friendly means to me that it serves a purpose within a conversation other than to look good, the Emoticon has to show an action or an Emotion, the animation shouldn't be too long and the canvas not too big. Therefore there will be also a restricted canvas size for the Contest.
Only new submissions for the Contest.The Emoticon has to be Chat friendly, they have to show an Emotion or an Action, which can be used within conv

DA Update, Twitter, and About New ArtDA’s New UpdateDA Update, Twitter, and About New Art5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Not really a fan. As usual there are a lot of unnecessary changes, things get arbitrarily moved around for no good reason, and key features that I want yet again ignored. So yeah, not really a fan, but at least it’s not AS dramatic of a change as it has been before so... I guess that’s a plus?
REALLY wish I could remove the comments section on my frontpage, still. Been requesting that for over a decade now. I know for most people it’s not an issue, but for me specifically that is the place where pretty much ALL of the hate directed at me goes. It’s a nasty hateful spot on my frontpage that I really just want to get rid of. Hell, I’d trade allowing comments on my art again if I could remove that shit-hole from my frontpage.
Noticed that DA added an “activities” section to my frontpage in an effort to “bring you closer to the community” which is a nice thought but thoroughly unappreciated by me

A Guide to Effective TaggingA new method to promote and discover art has been released to the community in the form of Tags! When submitting art, adding relevant tags to your deviations will help viewers discover art of interest to them and give your work more exposure.A Guide to Effective Tagging6 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
You can add tags based on a variety of things, be it subject matter, themes, medium used, fandom, or anything else you feel is important.
Use these tips to make the most of tags and help your art to find its audience:
Keep it simple. The less complicated the tag, the easier your art is to discover.
Be specific. If you take a picture of a rose, tagging it as #flower, while correct, won’t get your art as much attention as tagging it #rose will. You can, of course, tag both.
Tag efficiently. If your art is based on Lord of the Rings, tag it #LordOfTheRings and/or #lotr. You don’t need to tag every combination — t

What does your username have to do with you? Is it a combination of your favorite things, or a character of yours?
ShAcKmO is actually a old username from a service,Flipnote Hatena. ShAcKmO is a combination of "Shake","Creative" and "Monster". "Shake" are one of my favorite drinks,"Monster" because I am creepy sometimes XD and "Creative" it's pretty self-explanatory (even tho I don't think I'm creative at all)
Also,the mix-up of uppercase and lowercase letters makes it more cool looking
That's the origins of the username "ShAcKmO"
