Clarifying an Issue with Stock ResourcesThere appears to be a fair amount of misunderstanding on the subject of stock resources so what I would like to do today is attempt to clarify several issues which are of importance to the artists who generously provide stock resources to the public for use and hopefully dispel the confusion and misinformation which is beginning to circulate.Clarifying an Issue with Stock Resources2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The first issue at hand is in regards to your personal stock terms
Your Personal Stock Terms
Officially deviantART maintains only one "automatic" restriction and that is "No Commercial Use" and that particular restriction can easily be overridden by the actual stock provider.
We only ask a few things from you in return;

An interesting idea I had as I was looking through my comments.
500 points being given.
If you don't really care about entering, just favorite this journal to be entered in to win 100 points.
The main idea is to make me laugh by using the simple doge meme on one of my photographs. It can be any of them; the choice is yours but it must follow certain guidelines.
Please post it to your sta.sh and post it on this journal.
Be original. (You can look to comments from inspiration but don't completely take the ideas there.)
If you have no idea what the shibe/doge meme is. Take this photo for example.
These photos utilize the the comic sans font, usually rainbow colors and text of varying sizes. Th

This is a picture Mike took a week ago.
Charming is asleep on Mike's bed.
A happy, healthy kitten.
Our little Prince Charming suddenly became ill this morning.
Norman and Mike took him to the ER vet.
He has a fever of 105*.
He is staying at the vet's so they can give him IV fluids,
and run tests to see what may be wrong.
Initially, they think it is a virus.
Please pray for Prince Charming to get well quickly.
And please pray that Princess and Valiant stay well.
SUPER SHORT NOTICE TRIP ALERTEDIT 2: I wrote more about it later.SUPER SHORT NOTICE TRIP ALERT11 months ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: I'm back and Cleo is happily installed in my storage room with all of her things! She's currently hiding behind a pile of boxes (understandable after a 14 hour drive to a strange place) so here's a shot of her during the car ride:
(She looks just like Sasha except 10 years younger. My new name is Witti: Collector of Russian Blues)
I'm gonna go sleep for 12 hours and then get to all my messages tomorrow. Thank you for all the well wishes; the whole trip was extremely uneventful and went pretty much flawlessly! I'm so glad I was able to get Cleo so she can stay in the family instead of having to go to a shelter or to some stranger. I will write more about it later.

Recipes and a Contest and So on.REMINDER! The contest closes on Dec 31!</i>Recipes and a Contest and So on.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not sure if it is because I am thinking more about Thanksgiving lately (and how much I would kill for a turkey...or an oven to cook it with), but I have had recipes and cooking on the brain recently. And so I have begun developing a little idea for a contest. About cookies. And Hetalia. With prizes. Interested?
My idea was to revamp my old Hetalia cookie cards with a nicer, cleaner format. Add new pictures of the characters, pictures of the finished product, more recipes and characters, etc. and put them together into an actual cook book, which would be available for sale online. Revamping and cleaning up, I can do. But, as anyone who knows about my current situation knows, I can't bake cookies since I no longer have an oven.
So here is where the contest comes in!
For each of the existing recipes, I would like a picture of cookie that matches.
Simply bake a batch of cookies and take a picture of the finished pr

I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!

The founder of this group left a very long time ago, but unfortunately did not delete their account. Had they deleted it, DA would be able to assign a new founders.
I am the only costly active staff member, but I read and reply to all comments, make new folders when necessary and help when questions are asked.
I would just like to remind you that you are not forgotten, this group is not abandoned and I do very much care about all of you.

Art, Math, and Computers: Primary ColorsA series of occasional articles on the intersection of art, math, and computersArt, Math, and Computers: Primary Colors3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Everything you know is wrong.
That's the title of an old Firesign Theater album, and I think of it often as I watch my kids progress through high school. Maybe it should read, "Many of the things you are taught have been dumbed down because teachers didn't think you could handle them." Whether it's glossing over quantum physics when teaching the nature of the atom, or stating that Socrates killed himself, because getting into the whole trial thing is too complicated, examples abound.
Anyway...most people, when asked to name the primary colors, would respond "red, yellow, and blue", and, when asked to define what a primary color is, would respond with something like, "they are the colors which can be used to make all other colors". That's what many of us were taught in school at a young age, but it's only partially true. People involved in printing know that the truest pri

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.
Winter, Hope and PanamaToday we took the three girls out of their home and temporarily moved them to the Stranding Deck where we have 2 pools that will be used for animals that we save, but must be quarantined. I think that they like the new surroundings. Hope enjoyed swimming from one pool to the other, visiting Winter in the larger tank and then over to Panama in the smaller. The pools are connected but can be made into two separate tanks when the gates are closed. Also, today the director and a couple of producers of Dolphin Tale 2 visited. Yup, it was a pretty hectic day, but we are getting very used to chaos!!Winter, Hope and Panama2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

I do not support this.
I believe that Mary-Sues can CHANGE, I was once a Mary-Sue maker! I made a character nammed "Flytile" and she was married to a Darkrai, but his evil shiny twin brother, Dark, wanted to marry her! Everyone wanted to marry her!
Gosh, I look back at that, and I don't see it as an abomination.
I see it as a dramatic transformation.
Even though I had a Mary-Sue character, doesn't mean she was. Most of the time, she would end up in a situation where she couldn't get out of, and she'd say "I'm screwed!" She made mistakes, she wasn't PERFECT.
Now my close friend's character was a BIT more Suiesh...But once I told her that, she made an IMMEDIATE change to her character Development.
When I mean immediate, I mean we shot the shit for a good 30 minutes after I said that, balancing out her Mother 3 fa

Hey guys....Please don't save my images you find on here to your computer, crop out my signature/watermark, and then re-post it to another website.Hey guys....10 months ago in Personal More Like This
That is one of the most disrespectful things you could possibly do to an artist. I found one such image like that and I'm trying to get in contact with the original poster to see if they are the one who thinks that image is theirs.
I try not to put my watermarks in the middle of the image, because I think that may take away from the image if all you see is my name on its face. So I try and put them in the corners.
It's actions like this that make me not want to post images anymore because they're just going to be taken and misrepresented.
On a brighter note, I did add a few prints to my Etsy shop. Dee Otter Shop . And if you see something that isn't listed that you would like to have as a print, send me a note and I can add it as soon as I get a break from school wor
