On the importance of submitting icons correctly.Why this journal?On the importance of submitting icons correctly.3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The reason I'm writing this journal is because miscatting has become quite a popular practice on dA and as such it needs to be addressed from time to time. Before a new Icon-CV had been appointed (say hi to ValaSedai as the new Icon-CV!), I had discussed with ClefairyKid about writing up a small journal (though likely text-wall) about the importance of correctly submitting icons and pixel art.
While some deviants may be doing it on purpose, due to the recent changes in the Fair Exposure-algorythm, a lot of you don't, which is why I hope this journal helps clear up some misunderstandings about both galleries. Most of the info in this journal caters specifically towards iconists, so iconists: welcome to you!
But even if you aren't an iconist, the information in this article will hopefully still be beneficial to you: welcome to you as well!
Reasons why submitting correctly is beneficial for you.

So I have had these two bbies for a very long time but both need a heavy redesign. They are my two first ponies other then my ponysona.
Now here is the thing I don't like ANYTHING about there old designs sooo....I will be asking you guys to go wild with the changes. Each has a list of things they need to have so with out further ado I will go on with those.
-heavy stitches all over her body
-long flowying hair.
History: Franken is the reanimated corpse of a young woman who died on her wedding day. She was the obsession of a dark but harmless unicorn. Fraken is hopelessly devoted to that pony and loves him deeply. she has few memories of her past before she was reanimated. However, in her past she was known as moonlight aria. She was a singer mainly operatic.
-stitching around his cutie mark
- short tail

Advertise Your CommissionsLately I've been wanting to have a spot where I can go and just find good commissions, instead of having to rummage around tons of artists on DeviantART who's commissions are closed or else too expensive. I expect that other people feel the same as well.Advertise Your Commissions11 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, I'm going to allow people to advertise their commissions on this journal! Anyone can use this as a method to sell your own commissions or buy commissions from others.
This journal will be left on my page, so it will always be there for others to see. uvu~
What is allowed:
- Art Trades
What is not allowed:
- Self/Group Advertisement other than what was listed in "What is allowed"
- Don't say "I do commissions" "I do commissions for ___" You must LINK your prices! If the prices are on the commission widget on your page, simply state that.
- Do not ask "Can I link my prices here?" Of COURSE you can! ^.^ That is what this is for. Everyone can link their prices.

EDIT: I'm already getting a lot of great applications, so I'm adding a deadline. Applications submitted after Tuesday, June 19th 9:00pm Central time will not be considered. So you have a day.
So this group is in desperate need of some new, dedicated, permanent mods, and possibly a new group owner. Here's what I'm looking for (list may be edited if necessary):
- Dedicated people This group at least a thousand submissions a week, and hundreds of join requests. That means that this group needs people who will check deviantart frequently throughout the day to approve/deny new join requests, and possibly submissions too, if the new mods choose to.
- People who want this group to improve&

Commission info (CLOSED)Please readCommission info (CLOSED)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I can do all type of human character but only girls for the moment because I can't draw boys. I'm practicing but I'm not satisfied enought to be able to include male characters in my commissions.
I don't draw mecha, realistic or older people, animals (I can do an exception if is a character's mascot, in that case I'll try), sexual themes, yaoi or yuri, muscles
In general, I prefer to draw one character per drawing but it depends.
I will start the commission as soon as I have received the payment (can be all or half at the beginning and half after I post it)
I have the right to reject the commission if I think I can't do a good job
Feel free to as

to make a contest! Well here is it! ^^
We are a little group and it would be really
great if you join to this little contest!
What you should do:
This contest is about our mascot!
No drawing or something like that it is just about giving

Dan vs. Mary-Sue Litmus TestAh, the Mary-Sue litmus test. The writer's most reliable, most knowledgable deterrent from creating fiction's worst nightmare: the Mary-Sue. If you don't know what a Mary-Sue is, then you should probably look it up. But beware, it's more migraine-inducing than it looks.Dan vs. Mary-Sue Litmus Test3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Like most avid readers, I absolutely despise Mary-Sues. They can be very annoying and completely ruin a story for me. But there's something I haven't told anyone: I don't believe in the Mary-Sue litmus test (le gasp!). There is no doubt that it helps writers though. It does indeed give you insight on your character; what needs to be fixed and all that. But it can also take away an interesting character, and replace it with a boring one. And I always wanted to prove it...
...Finally I can. When I saw Dan Vs. on the Hub, I knew exactly who the perfect candidate was (hint: his name is Dan). So, using this character, I'm going to take the test at http://www.katfeete.net/writing/marysue.html and see what he scores. Get ready
