About our "Dont submit here" folderI think you have all noticed our top folder, "- Dont submit here, pick the correct folder".About our "Dont submit here" folder2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Maybe we need to explain the purpose of this folder.
This folder is not for submissions. Nothing will ever be accepted in it, everything submitted to it will be declined and asked to be re-submitted to the correct folder.
We created this folder, to save us a lot of time.
Because there will always be people that don't pay enough attention to groups' folder systems, for many reasons.
They will just submit to whatever folder that shows up first, either in the gallery, or in the drop down menu when submitting to the group directly from a deviation.
Mostly this is the aphabetically first folder, and before this was our "Animations"folder, and we got so many wrong submissions to this one, from people that didn't understood the folder system, or didn't care about it.
And since we almost never decline submissions, only re-direct them, we had to check every single submission to this folder, in order to b
Shutting Down and Moving- Please ReadHello everyone!Shutting Down and Moving- Please Read1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So we hate to disappoint you all, but this group is beyond saving.
As you all well know, we shut down for a few weeks to make an attempt at reorganizing and making this function again. And as soon as we reopened, we found out we had missed one critical point- Admin assistants were only able to vote on two folders- Featured and Critique Requested- and no one except the Founder had the permissions to change that.
I am SO sick and tired of dancing around this bullshit and being blocked at every turn. Granted, I probably should have checked this before we made so many changes, as I should have known better. I've tried to go in and fix it so that my wonderful admins can vote on all folders, but once again I wonder why I even bothered trying to fix this bloody mess. I either get a DA error that it can't save the changes OR I get an error that says I don't "have permission to change these settings." Of course I don't, silly me for even trying. I sent a not-so-nice note to the

Alright, kiddies: Listen up!So by now I'm sure a lot of us are aware of Congress' attempt to pass a revised version of the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) act. That one that flipped the entire internet upside down, last year? (I think it was last year. It's been going on for...two years now, I think.) Anyway, I stumbled on it through a couple dA journals that were vastly inaccurate; frightened at first I decided to further research and that's how I discovered the inaccuracies. I've checked multiple websites and though I can't say for sure, the panic on deviantart is absolutely unwarrented.Alright, kiddies: Listen up!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
SO LISTEN UP. THIS IS WHAT THE NEW SOPA TARGETS:
This new SOPA gets straight to the point: its intent is to go after anyone streaming (or covering) copyrighted video or audio and charge them for committing felony. This means if you upload movies on youtube, make music videos with your favorite films/songs,

So I figured since I see so many amazing designs on here, maybe a few people would be generous enough to lend a hand? I'm not looking for anything in particular. It could be either male or female. I would like the design(s) to be any of the following:
4) Jock (either gender xD)
7) Otaku xD
8) ANY OTHER THING YOU CAN THINK OF.
I really hope this isn't considered as advertising or whatever. I just want to get help for clothing designs for my OC's is all!;A;
I really hope someone comes across this and is up to the challenge. Thanks for reading this~!

A Valentine Birthday Wish from +SpyedAll of my birthdays have always been about stuff. Stuff I don't want, stuff I definitely don't need. This year for my birthday on Valentines Day I want to focus the love I have from my friends and family to build a WELL in a developing country. They cost $5000. And for the next 20 years this well will provide fresh drinking water to a village.A Valentine Birthday Wish from +Spyed3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Angelo's words...
All of my birthdays have always been about stuff. Stuff I don't want, stuff I definitely don't need.
I'm surrounded by very giving people, and I'm always honored by how gracious my friends are, but when a guy gets to a
certain age, you kinda just buy the video games and books and music right when you want them, you know?
This year, I decided to do something a little different for my birthday. I was introduced recently to a charity

1)What is your major in university??? -I study fashion design and i guess you can see that in my works. But i also got a degree in Web-design.
2)How long have you been drawing? -I've started when i was eight and went to art school for kids(it's like evening school where you go after normal school)i finished it when i was 15 and at that time i hated drawing!!But when i was 16 went to USA and met there a great teacher- he is my inspiration and thanks to him i do what i do now.
3)Why do you draw only girls? - Because i don't know how to draw guys...i'm pretty stupid. and i like drawing girls!!!All lines and shapes are so nice!! XD
4)Why do you draw only one eye for your models? - That's again because i'm not so good with anatomy and symmetry and so i created

A new feature has been launched that's designed to make interacting with others even easier than before! Deviant & Art Mentions are a highly requested feature that send notifications to your Message Center when someone mentions you or your work in a public location on site.
How It Works
When another deviant uses the :dev: or :icon: codes to mention you, or includes one of your deviations in a comment or Journal, a message will appear in the new Mentions section of the Message Center letting you know, and linking you to the location.
These messages are designed to help engagement between deviants, as well as to help further conversation on deviantART, making it easier than before to
CAUTION: FANART THEFTA friend of mine asked me whether I gave one of my pieces to anyone for printing this morning. I was very surprised to hear that, because most on my recent works are done for a fan art collection. Then she said she saw somebody selling my prints on a comic exhibition in Taiwan. What the @@? Selling my works somewhere even without my own acknowledge? This is so ridicules.CAUTION: FANART THEFT3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm stating this here since I only posted that piece here. It's not on my Chinese blog, not posted in any forums, nowhere else. It's ONLY on DA. So, you know what I mean. It must be someone visiting Deviant Art who happened to open my page.
I don't know what the situations are like in other countries, but in Asia, it's so common that people sell their fan art prints on comic exhibition, sharing their recreation of those beloved characters. It should be a friendly and hilarious environment, but it's the artists who present their works, or at least give permission to someone else. Selling other's art without saying a wor

Everyone has Drawbacks or disadvantages due to different circumstances in our lives, but it´s on us to change our view about them, or better said: turning them into assets.
The image shows an explanatory example of this topic, it is told that Lady Gaga was a roadie for Iron Maiden, once upon a time. Things that would make everyone else look like a complete dork somehow complimenting her appearance.
This post should be a motivator to carry on with whatever you do. If you have two healthy hands, a rough vision, some kind of talent, this post should help you push the envelope by unleashing potential that might hold you back now.
