We've updated the way Profile pageviews are counted for deviants and Groups. Many years ago, we expanded the pageview counter to include not just the front page of your Profile, but also the Journals tab and the Prints tab (but not individual Journals or Prints). We mistakenly never expanded the count to other areas of the Profile.

February Speed-paint Landscape Challenge!February Speed-paint Landscape Challenge!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: CHALLENGE STARTS TODAY!
Post finished works in the comments and it will be posted in this journal
With the success of the December challenge and being able to see the progress of the artists who contributed, it was definitely an incredible experience. So again I will be going to be doing another challenge, this time with the help of other artists. This months theme is Landscapes!
This is an area i am weak in and i would love to do this challenge with others who are looking to improve this part of their craft as well.
The way it works is there will be a photo designated for every other day. There is a two hour time limit with each piece, and my advice would be to use all of this time wisely. There will be two critiquing sessions one around the 15th, and the other at the end of the month so using all the time allotted would be to your benefit.
Only rule: NO TRACING!!!! We will tear you a new one in the critique so DONT DO IT!! We

In case you haven't already seen the first journal with a few answers, just click on this http://motionbooktool.deviantart.com/journal/Some-answers-to-some-recent-questions-363387248 to check them out!
To augment our first round of answers, here are a few more answers to recent questions:
Q1) Will users have to have coding knowledge/experience?
A1) Not at all! The tool is actually really simple for anyone to use with a great user interface (that we are refining as I write these words to make even better)!
Q2) Will the user be able to drop in sound assets, music, and sound effects into the motion books?
A2) Yes, it is very easy to implement .mp3 files with any sound you like and trigger them where you want in the story! You can also adjust volume intensity in the MBT, looping, and fade in / fade out of either a loop or a single play through of your sound.
Q3) If I were to go ahead and start drawing my comic, are there any technical aspects to my appr

Illustrated prose motion booksOne thing we're very keen to promote and be clear about is the fact that the Motion Book Tool can be used for more than comics, and upcoming are some examples of illustrated prose - kicking of with Metawhal Alpha, illustrated by the fantastic Dave Lupton. There's such a wonderful community of writers here, and as many iterations of the writing form as your imagination will endorse. Words and pictures - reading - is what we are most passionate about. The words matter as much as the art, and we want people to be engaged and active within that experience.Illustrated prose motion books11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've said it before, but I think we are going to be astonished by what creators produce, and amazed by the innovation we see by dA users. So exciting for us, as it's been a long and arduous road getting here, fueled by goodwill, passion, and a dogged refusal to give up. I, for one, can't wait to see where this year takes us!
Madefire and Literature: Interview with Liam SharpWhen deviantART HQ announced they were Introducing Madefire Motionbooks to deviantART, the writers amongst us were again asking "what about us?". Madefire seems pretty awesome, but what can we do as writers to get involved? The answer is LOTS. In an interview with Writer, Comic Book Artist, Publisher and Madefire co-founder Liam Sharp, we find out a little bit more about what Madefire can do for writers, and a little about Liam himself...Madefire and Literature: Interview with Liam Sharp10 months ago in Literature Features More Like This

Initial Release of the Motion Book ToolIn April of last year, we announced a partnership between deviantART and Madefire, bringing Madefire's signature Motion Books to deviantART and introducing a new form of storytelling to the world's largest art community.Initial Release of the Motion Book Tool1 month ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
We also announced that Madefire's professional-grade Motion Book Tool would be brought to deviantART—giving deviants the opportunity to turn imagination into a visual, auditory, and literary masterpiece, and showcase their art alongside some of the industry’s greatest creators.
After months of development and testing, we are excited to announce that the gradual release of the Motion Book Tool has begun, and you're (very likely) among the first to gain access. Having access to the Tool means you can create dynamic Motion Books just like the pros, and publish them directly from your deviantART account!

How to Write a Story: A Guide by KitaWriting a StoryHow to Write a Story: A Guide by Kita4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello guys! Kita-Angel here again with even more stuff! Today I will be taking the time to make an article about story writing, really the key points, what they are, how you can improve on them and what a story really is, like what brings it all together.
There is going to be a LOT of key stuff here, and it is going to sound like English class in high school all over again. Hooray! But this is valuable stuff, so pay attention. It is definitely worth it!
This guide was written with the intention to help those who lack any experience at all with story writing to know what is required to make a story. After this we can maybe start looking into how to improve what you have worked on!
What Makes a Story
So, what is it that makes a story? Where do people get these amazing ideas for amazing stories? How do we take the idea and make all the components needed?

Manga-Making: How to Create An Original Story PlotMy definition of original manga is it MUST be UNIQUE, FRESH AND ENTERTAINING. There are unlimited ideas ofManga-Making: How to Create An Original Story Plot6 years ago in Personal More Like This
how to make original manga plot that no one will ever think of it...so I'm going to teach you how to make it!
(1) What do you like? (Can be ranged from objects, people, hobbies, sports, game etc)
Well the reason why I ask you this question is because I want you to write / draw something you enjoy a lot If you like more than one thing, you can combine them to create a masterpiece!
*** Sample Answer***
I normally enjoy clubbing with my friends and I love listening to music. During the last summer vacation, we visited some of the nightclubs in the Mediterraneans and I quite like it (except the hangover part!). So since DJs, nightclub & music is something I like, I can create a plot about a music-loving person who wants to become the world best DJ so (s)he competes with other DJs in the nightclub, competition etc
Miralce Of Sound - Sovngarde SongFrom the mists of the mountains a deafening callMiralce Of Sound - Sovngarde Song2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bellows down over the plains
On a host of battle-worn ears it does fall
Pushing out through the thunder and rain
These men of the north they have suffered too long
The anger it swells in their veins
Of the spirited roars of lost warriors' songs
Distant echoes are all that remain
And my voice is my violence
Clear the sky's frozen tears
And no more we'll be silent
With this Sovngarde song in our ears
And we stand tall
Sons of the snow
We will not fall
Under these blows
For our hearts they are hardy
Our spirits are strong
And our voices are lifted into
This Sovngarde song
Conquer the anger and ravenous rage!
Make it a part of your power
Pummeling down let your bloodlust engage!
Under your force they will cower
Feeling the fury so pure and so bright
Breaking the bonds of surrender
Under the moon for our home we will fight
And we will die to defend her
And my voice is my violence
Clear the sky's frozen tears
And no more we'll be silent

PLEASE STOP ACTA! :'(This is really important guys, and I'll need all you help to even give us a fighting chance. Yes. SOPA and PIPA are gone. But ACTA isn't. To put it short, its worse than both the others. We'll be surveillanced by the governmnet for any shared material, like music or videos with copyrighted music and stuff. If you have been found to be sharing/shared with the content, you are then dubbed as a criminal and can not only be arrested and given an LIFE SENTENCE, but you can also be sued by the company of the shared material should they feel hungry for money enough, and can be arrested if any exsisting copyrighted crap is found in your data from ages ago, and can be shut off from the internet perminantly. Youtube, twitter, facebook will all crumble and will no longer exist. I need you guys to spread this around like wildfire. The EU will be trying to sign the contract ASAP, so we need to get this done.

Hey guys, Kita-Angel here!
 If you would like to +fav this article, or bookmark it, click here for the NEWS ARTICLE! where you can directly +fav it, or just bookmark this page!
In this article, I actually had to do a LOT of research. I wanted to make sure that I covered a lot of different topics and not just things to make the characters LOOK different. I mean, they can look different but you also need to work on other details too, such as background, personality, goals/dreams, family, general bio...
I think I will split this into two parts, and since I have no time to make a proper tutorial, this will be part 1, an article full of usefull information i have thought of as a basis for character creation. From there, you can really elaborate the plan and guide yourself and work on other things to make this more detailed and personalized.
I will also do a second part much

Odyssey. I can think of no better word to describe the journey that took place these past few months.
With the prologue, “They’re Mad, They Are,” I began work on a vessel that was not yet ready for sea. And on that holed ship, together we embarked over open waters towards an unknown destination.

To everyone who says picking on Microsoft for their consumer unfriendly bullshit was "being unnecessarily mean," take a look at this. Don Mattrick just announced that Microsoft is back peddling with the XBOne, removing the disastrously awful features we've been bashing them for trying to inflict on us.
Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.
For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy

We're not over keen
We'll dice them like a knife
Slicing right through
Our dragon shout flow
Is sweeter than a soda stream
You won't believe your eyes
We're like an overload
A broadsword in one hand
And a magic spell in the other
We are the last of the Dragonborns
There's no other, my brothers and sisters
So run for cover
If you've got scales
Then we're on your tail
And I will not fail
Like a free-roaming
We're off the rails
We'll walk the trail
Through awful gales
And storms of hail
'Til all the nails
Are knocked into your coffin
We're not stopping
'Til you're impaled
And We've prevailed
In the name of our ancestors
We pray to the Lords
You all get a taste
Of the blade of our weapons
