PE - All From One BaseA little under a week before Dolling Week began, mariiiis-dolls sent me a note with an amazing idea...PE - All From One Base2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
"Many people don't think dolling is very difficult, because we use premade bases and therefore don't put much effort into our dolls....But we do.
How about choosing (or creating, even though it's very spontaneous) a base, and a few dollers with diverse styles who should use the same base? Everyone would doll in their own unique style, to show that bases are more an inspiration, a point to start or a kind of 'collab' with the base maker, rather than a crutch? Maybe even a small description about the techniques the dollers use, technical details (like colors, time spent and so on). Dolling can be much more than using the base because 'we're lazy' - we use bases because we want to work with different styles, and combine styles of our own with styles of the base maker to create unique work."

ReBoot Returns!!!!VANCOUVER, BC (September 30, 2013) – A renowned global animation brand is about to be re-booted. Reflecting the company’s commitment to the production of animated programming for television, Rainmaker Entertainment Inc. has named its television division Mainframe Entertainment.ReBoot Returns!!!!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
In conjunction with the re-birth of Mainframe Entertainment, a name celebrated for its pioneering achievements in computer-animated television, the company has unveiled the first two series in development: an all-new version of the popular ReBoot franchise and Tiger’s Apprentice, a CGI animated series based on the trilogy of young adult novels written by award-winning author Laurence Yep.
The reimagining of the venerable ReBoot series comes just in time for its 20th anniversary. Making its debut on television screens in 1994, ReBoot was centered on the world of Mainframe, where a guardian program sprite and his friends defended the system from superviruses bent on creating havoc and

Complimentary Badges [update]Hello everyone it's my birthday tomorrow which is something i have only remembered just thenComplimentary Badges [update]1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So if you're wondering that is why this is such short notice lol.
Anyway usually i have some sort of silly giveaway thing around my bday BUT NOT THIS YEAR BECAUSE I'M LAZY haha no i lie there's still a giveaway let's not break tradition eh.
This year i'll be doing tiny digital complimentary badges (in honour of Harmony Day). And when i say complimentary i mean it more so in the way that they'll have a random compliment written on them Because you know it's nice when other people feel nice about themselves. They'll look something like this (and literally be about this size):
Aww, lookit his little T-rex arms.

Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright InfringementNever needed to keep a journal. I decided to install it today just to post this.Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright Infringement6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There is a terrible story about an user that had a complain about copyright infringment, in which she was not the owner of the copyright over the original character as the original belongs to Lauren Faust / Hasbro. The girl unleashed her fanbase (other than all the other pricks around the internet that have no other interesting stuff to do and find it funny) against a Community Manager, Administrator of Deviantart, which i find to be an otrageous thing to do.
I searched for a simple yet effective description of what Copyright means and i found it surprisingly non other than on the respective bashed admin's journal, as a very old entry.
Probably if the people would have bothered to browse and read, they would have been illuminated why the admin took the actions he did on the so often posted screenshot.
What I want to do here is to use the overall issue to compare the differences between copying, plagiari

You want to make a Flash Dress Up Game?But you're not entirely familiar with Flash? WELL FEAR NOT! Deviantart supplies A VAST AMOUNT OF TUTORIALS from people who know and have some fair amount of understanding of what to do.You want to make a Flash Dress Up Game?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I'll help you get started by supplying some information and also recommending a couple very nice and informative tutorials about Flash. Plus don't be discouraged if you suck at drawing in Flash, I provided a fair amount of information for an alternative solution at the end!
What you need:
- Flash* (any kind of Flash where you can write Action Script 2.0... NOT Action Script 3.0, these tutorials cover AS 2.0)
*If you're wondering what kind of Flash I use, I'll tell you. I use a super old school Flash that does the job juuust fine. It's called Macromedia Flash MX, also known as "Flash 6.0 r25" Yuuuup, really old. I've had it since junior year in high school (approx. 5 years). I have Flash Professional CS5, and it looks pretty much the same as Flash 6, so don't worry.

Commissions Open!Millennium Item Commissions!Commissions Open!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, I'm finally opening for Millennium Item commissions. Thank you to everyone who has shown interest and has been so patient with me while I figured things out. So, here's how everything will be working out!
Each Item is lightweight thanks to the materials I use, the heaviest being about 7.5 ounces. Each one is durable enough for cosplay and conventions, but as a warning they will most likely chip if they take any hard blows, so no light saber fights with the Millennium Rod or games of Millennium Frisbee! What you do with the Item once you receive it is your responsibility.
Listed below is each Item with a link to some detailed pictures along with the price for commissioning. These prices include shipping, and were calculated based off of the price for materials, shipping, and the time it takes me to make them. Shipping is calculated for within the US. If you need international shipping, let me know.

ElsannaSo for those who don't know, Elsanna is the "couple name" for the shipping of Elsa and Anna of Arendelle as lovers. I don't want to be one of those shipper bashers but I'm just wondering why this ship exists... especially cause it's Disney characters?!Elsanna4 months ago in Personal More Like This
From a personal level, I'm going to be blatant and say I'm against incest and the shipping of Elsanna. Why? Having a sister of my own, that I love to death in a family way... I would NEVER dream of encountering in a romantic relationship with her. I mean...we share parents, we share stuff that couples don't normally share. She was meant to be my sister, not my lover. This ship just actually affects me because my sister and I envision ourselves like Elsa and Anna. It's like saying people ship us together. Ew. Blech. (Sorry sis!) I'm more disturbed at the fact that some people have actually made Elsanna art depicting them engaging in sexual activity. It's like...you're fantasizing two sisters having sex? Huh, imagine yourself having s
