Tutorial for the One Dollar KoiHello everyone,Tutorial for the One Dollar Koi6 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all I would like to say "Thank you" for all your support.
Also I would like to give a "BIG THANK YOU" to my good friend Michael Sanders for putting together the video tutorial.
I finally have a video tutorial made. Before you can begin you will need a set of my Koi diagrams.
I would also like to say that if you are a beginner in Origami that this may be to hard for you. Start with something a little easier first.
In the tutorial I will teach you how to fold the "Koi" the way I fold it. I will not be following the diagrams normally, but you still need them for the beginning.
You can get a set of the diagrams here: http://www.origami-resource-center.com/support-files/dollarkoifish.pdf
After you have the diagrams you can go to my friends blog site here for the tutorial.

The Scottish Highlands
“Outlander” is a new cable series about a young woman who time travels from England at the end of WWII to 1743 Scotland, right before the Second Jacobite Uprising. The science fiction time travel and Scottish civil war themes are simply elaborate devices to justify the heroine engaging in a sizzling “bodice–ripper” romance. The location shoot in the lush eye–popping Scottish Highlands provides a beautiful backdrop for all the hot romance. Even if British reserve, Scottish resolve and cable sex aren’t your cup of tea, the amazing landscapes framing the tale are well worth your time.

It doesn't feel that long - but in a few more years I'll have been on this site for half my life. Sheesh!
I've improved so much having an audience to show work to, even if the point of the work wasn't an audience - just having a platform from which I could do anything at all has been really amazing for me over the years.
And then... PMD-e... which has been a really tremendous learning experience for me (and others!), in so many ways. I don't want to turn this journal sappy or anything, but I've been lucky to have met so many people and have gotten the chance to help create a community with its ups and downs.
And... speaking of such...
I'll be making a journal later about the state of PMD-e right now - I know the updates have been sporadic, and this has been for a few reasons. I've been thinking about how to word things for a few days now, and I don't think I've quite gotten it yet.
Anyway, for those of you who've been around since

A tip for somewhat serious writersIn judging the writing entries for Mission 5, I've come to notice a trend becoming increasingly popular.A tip for somewhat serious writers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm referring to cameos. I've seen stories with upwards of five, or six cameos.
Normally, this would not be a problem. (It isn't, really! You're free to write however you like. This should be a fun thing for you to do!)
However! None of stories I have judged so far have had their scores increase because of cameos. I've only seen cameos degrade the quality of the work, and therefore, the score the writer receives. If you're just writing for fun and have no interest in the score you receive, then none of the below applies to you!
Cameos are fine if they're done well, but I haven't really seen once done well in this round of judging. (I've yet to actually finish judging, so a story may surprise me!)
So far, cameos have only succeeded in making the story feel rushed, too condensed, and full of unnecessary information. I have no interest in knowing everything about the five or six

Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic

1M Downloads & GithubThis day marks a special milestone of achievement for the developers of Omnimo. A humble project that started almost two years ago reached one million downloads today. Most of you probably don't know that this project was supposed to be much smaller. When I came up with the early concept in the middle of March, I intended it to have approximately 12 panels and several text items.1M Downloads & Github3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Omnimo: The Beginning
Nothing more. However, shortly after the concept, Xyrfo joined the project. And with our combined passion and ambition, as well as with some help from others, we managed to create the biggest Rainmeter suite ever. Xyrfo did some amazing stuff for the project. Things without which it would just remain but a dream of a madman. But he did it! For that, he deserves no less recognition than I do.
And of course, we would like to thank the community for all the support! You guys are awesome! Nothing motivates doing a project better than to see people use and enjoy the product. W
PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?You're browsing deviantART or are simply checking your message centre and find a wonderful art piece. You want to suggest it as a Daily Deviation because you believe it truly deserves to be seen by the community as a whole. But how to properly suggest a DD? This article will explain the process.PE Daily Deviations - So you want to suggest DDs?2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Things to check before sending a suggestion:
The first thing you need to check is if the artist has been given a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months. Volunteers cannot feature anyone who's had a DD in that period of time with no exceptions, as this has been hard-coded into deviantART's system.
"But how do I check an artist's Daily Deviations?" you may ask. Simply go to their gallery, click browse and scroll down. If they have any DDs, you'll be able to find a link to them at the bottom of the page. Alternatively, you can add "/dds" after their profile url and click enter on your browser's address bar.
FailureWell, this is awkward.Failure3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?

Part 1: Submitting with POWER
I know there are a million "how to be popular" guides on DA and a million more parody versions of them. This article isn't about becoming popular, or starting drama or racking up pageviews as fast as possible for the sake of seeing a larger number.
This article won't make your art better, or make you more a more popular personality. However, what I've noticed is that many artists are missing out on feedback and exposure that they should be getting if not for a few common mistakes. Time after time, I've read on Artist's Confessions, or just browsing through members' personal journals that their gallery doesn't recieve any traffic and they can't improve because they're not getting any feedback. They feel like their lack of popularity is a personal statement. That their art isn't worth looking at. This is entirely untrue.
Hopefully this will help you, the underexposed artist, to b
