__________Official Sphinx OC Contest Information__________
Contest Dates/Timetable: October 1st to October 31st - Midnight to Midnight (EST)
Contest Theme: Create Your Own Sphinx Original Character
With the upcoming launch of my original manga, Sphinx (drawn by the wonderful WickedJuti), coming up on the horizon, I've decided to hold a full-fledged contest to help bring the community into the setting that I've created for this story. I also wanted to get a chance to support the amazing imagination that thrives here on deviantART, which has pushed me time and time again to continue my projects and pursue art. And by separating this contest into both v

installing litestep is not a big deal. it has dependencies like any other application, and without them it will error. assuming your system meets all the requirements right now you can stop reading this and install litestep using the Omar Installer. (omar is the guy who created the installer) litestep was built using the x86 architecture so a x86 system is a prerequisite, however people have managed to install and use litestep on x64 systems.
Megaman X9 Chapter 1: The SanctuaryThree weeks later. Due to the incident of Lumine and the new generation reploids going maverick. The new generation reploids production has been halted. Growing weary from the Reploids maverick actions, Humans have created a settlement away from the reploids from different places on earth. The New Generation Reploids incident of going Maverick was kept classified so it won’t spread fear to humans.Megaman X9 Chapter 1: The Sanctuary7 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
X and Zero reported this incident from the higher authority. They mention about their comrade Axl in comatose because Lumine lashes something on his forehead. Axl have not awaken for 3 weeks so X and Zero decided to bring Axl to a more advance investigatory process because he does not show any sign of recovery from the Headquarters. They admitted Axl in New Generation Reploids Research Facility.

My MALE cat has adopted kittens?! o-OIts so strange! And yet so endearing. Skittles, my sweet and precious cat who I love like my own son, is acting like such a father to four kittens.My MALE cat has adopted kittens?! o-O2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, a neighborhood female named Twilight had kittens awhile back. When they were first born skittles seemed interested, but didn't do much. He would, however, stay around like he was on guard duty. He was protective, let Twilight on his territory, and seemed oddly...concerned. I had never heard of a male taking care of another cat's kittens.
They cannot possibly be Skittles kittens, he was fixed, although he is an outside cat. At least we were TOLD he was fixed since we got him from a shelter.
As the kittens got older and big enough, the mother has started hissing, driving them away and letting them know its time to move on. So they moved into our yard. But now...Skittles is still protecting them. o-o To the point of chasing the MOTHER off so that the kittens can come out! She keeps hissing and batting at them, but he's alw

An Argument for SaidPrefaceAn Argument for Said3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before reading on, I want to make it clear that I only make this argument for writings of the English language. Although it may apply to others as well, I've learned through the comments below that at least in German and Russian this principle is reversed. So unless you're planning to write in English, you should look to writers of your own language for guidance.
An Argument for Said
When writing dialogue, it is necessary to use dialogue tags, which are the phrases that identify who's speaking. They're pretty easy to recognize once you know what they are. Here are a few examples, with the tags in bold.
"Canoodle is a funny word," she said.
"I'll have two beers, one schnitzel," he slurred.
"Don't drink the Kool-Aid," she whispered.
Look familiar? Simply put, they're "he/she said" and all its synonyms. Moving on.
When you're writing, you obviously want to

I hate the way the world has changed and you can't go anywhere with your best friend without people thinking your some gay couple. Actually its worse! I can't even go with my brother anywhere without people thinking we are a gay couple. Hey we just so happen to like to go see the movies at theaters, or go eat somewhere. Where we grew up that was just what hetero guys do, and brothers got along with each other. I don't know why all of a sudden people think only gay people do that.
I also hate it when people assume I'm gay because I don't have a girl friend. I mean what the F#&*$#!!? Just because I'm not sucking on a girl don't mean I am gay. I don't suck on a guy either. I'm not interested in sexual trends at all. The reason I don't go out with a girl is

- You want to connect, you want to put your own DNA into the picture and connect.
-Vulnerability. Telling someone who you are. Honestly revealing parts of yourself sincerely. The key to animation is sincerity. Step beyond your walls and share as an artist.
- Animation is the ultimate art form. No other art form will challenge you as much as animation can.
- You always want to be restless, I always had one foot out the door at Disney.
- it is important to not hold back and share all you have to your fellow artists. Got to keep giving it out and trust me it'll pour right back in.
- Drawing is about feeling.
- Conveying an emotion of peacefulness is just trying to capture someone living in that moment.
- Eyes are really key to e

Any change we make creates frustration, but if we do not make changes then we are killed by change itself.

deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!Spam is a constant thorn in the side of every Internet user's daily life. From the mundane to the surreal, these emails appear in our inboxes so frequently, messages from South African attorneys offering $10 million dollars get marked as spam without a second thought to savvy users.deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We define spam as the misuse of communication systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately to our deviants. Typically, the content of spam messages is aimed at advertising a product that is often counterfeit or potentially malicious. With the rise of social networking, there's been an increase in more direct spamming -- companies who directly target your social network profiles.
"Over the last few years, deviantART has had a small but unfortunate stream of such abuse. Usually, it’s as easy as banning the offending members and moving on to more pressing problems, but recently something happened that caused us to re-evaluate how we handle spam issues."

Paint Tool SAI and TRANSPARENT .PNGVarious Paint Tool SAI users might have noticed it, me included, and it always bugged me a bit.Paint Tool SAI and TRANSPARENT .PNG3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently, SAI doesn't support .PNG transparency. Meaning, when you go and try to save an image supposed to have transparent areas, the picture still gets a white background.
To fix this, I and possibly other people used to save the project as .psd and load it in Photoshop or similar programs to save the file with the wanted transparent area.
Well, a quick search made me figure out that it instead DOES allow it, so I was wondering how.
After some research I figured out I was using version 1.0, which is extremely old and outdated, and it doesn't even feature transparency.
It looks like version
and superior are what allows png to have transparent area.
For some reason it doesn't have ink pen, which the old 1.0 had, but that's not a big deal since most of SAI tools are just the same brush with different settings.
So... I upgraded to
