Suggestions for functional jewelry/stuff?We've gotten a ton of requests to modify everything from ear phones to cell phone cases to thumb drives, and in the past we've done individual commissions for them. But we wanted to ask if there was anything "functional" that people would like to see from us? Meaning, they do more than just be jewelry. Ironically, about he only thing we can't do is make working keys. They would be too delicate, plus you'd have to send us the key and there's a whole issue with ruining it if something goes wrong. (and yes we already do lockets )Suggestions for functional jewelry/stuff?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, we stated doing simple modified thumb drive necklaces (click image for larger):
They are kinda neat, they are small, simple, and actually do something just 2GB for right now, but we're just seeing how they do.
So, is there anything else like this that people might like to see modified that could have more function than jewelry? Let us know!
And also, thank you

For those who still don't know me... Hi! I'm Thiefoworld, but you can call me Thiefo, for short. I'm a graphic designer, a freelance illustrator and also an amateur comicker. I also like hamsters.
I'll be one of your Community Volunteers for DIGITAL ART from today and until my term ends, until I die or (if the mayans were right) until next Dec. 21st. Whatever happens first.
This is actually my second time as a volunteer. I was a Gallery Moderator (as they used to be called back then) for Comics & Cartoons alongside Majnouna from 2009 to 2010. It was an amazing experience, I learned a lot of valuable lessons, engaged with the community to a new level and made some awesome friends. I also received a permanent Premium Membership and a tick for it. So obviously I 'm impatient to do it all over again!
I guess some things have changed since my last term, so I'll take things slowly for now, re-learning all this voluntee

The judges each had different outlooks, and some have even left useful feedback which will be noted to those of you who have received some!! The next part, File 02, will begin some time in late April/ early May. Please stick around! <3

OCtopi ArmyOCtopiOCtopi Army3 years ago in Personal More Like This
On the 10th march 2012 I made myself an 'OCtopi avatar' based on the Crochet OCtopi SparklyDest made for me. The idea soon hit off and I set up commissions to allow others to have their own custom OCtopi. The collection was dubbed as the 'OCtopi army' and within 2 weeks had over 70 members. This journal has been created to host a record of this avatar craze.
As of 26th May 2012 the OCtopi base was made free to edit by any member of dA. Only commissions made by myself will be listed in the OCtopi army. For conditions of using the base please read the artists comments on this deviation
For information on commissions please visit this journal
Trends.There are a number of trends I'm amused by at deviantART.Trends.3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Search for draw this again and you see a meme where deviants are showing their progress through the years. Examples:
Then there's a trend on YouTube where deviants are posting video blogs about their deviantART experiences. I recently caught this one by DomieNeek that I was charmed by. She makes great points, too!
In November we published a Journal on dt's Blog, very discreetly announcing that we've launched a set of API's (Application Programming Interfaces) so that developers out there could make Apps for deviantART.
More about Blooms !!!As you have noticed I got some Blooms going recently and they become very very popular So it happens I'm in a spring mood and feel like being showered with flowers - time to shed the heavy skin clothing into light and fragrant. Got amazing comments on the blooms as well - from dreamy, in my dreams full of magic to I wish they grew in my garden, can you make some prints and even could you make the Blooms into 3d-sculpturesMore about Blooms !!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
All ideas and suggestions are very welcome - on short time notice I did added some prints & also a brand new calendar (with Blooms only). You can always add it to your wish list (so you don't forget the blooms when Christmas comes) or you can get it even right now, still 10 solid months left, and afterwards you can get the singular month pages to use as prints (I do that - good price for 12 artworks).
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?
My recipe for sopor slime pieOK DUDESMy recipe for sopor slime pie4 years ago in Personal More Like This
YOU WILL NEED
-a pie crust, or a thin loaf of cake (either will do)
-two packages of lemon lime jell-o
-a can of sprite, 7-up or lemon faygo
-two packages of vanilla pudding, or topping
-lots of green food colouring
-FOLLOW THESE STEPS IF YOU HAVE A PIE CRUST INSTEAD OF CAKE-
line your dish with greaseproof paper, to make it easier to remove the finished product.
Place pie crust into dish, and chill until hard.
follow the jell-o package instructions, but after adding the boiling hot water, replace cold water with your soda. Add lots of green food colouring at this point.
Pour this mixture into the pie crust, and refrigerate until the jell-o is set.
mix your vanilla pudding with 400 mls of milk SLOWLY and whisk for five minutes.
Yes, five whole minutes.
Add lots more green food colouring to the pudding.
gently pour the green puddng mixture on top of the jell-o, being EXTREMELY CAREFUL to keep the layers intact and not messed up.

ONCE AGAIN!Okay guys! Here with another loving rant for you all to enjoy! Let me tell you all for the final time, SWR Productions is not responsible for lack of attention you receive on pictures, models or any other bullshit! Whatever problems you are having with attention is NOT HER FAULT!! If her model gets more attention then YOURS then so be it! Perhaps people are not looking for said character, maybe they are not a fan of yours, or perhaps they have not found your model link yet. Who knows the damn reason, just stop with the stupid bullshit of "why is she so much more popular? Why is her models getting all the attention? Why won't people rp with me about my stuff" wah wah wah blah blah blah BULLSHIT!! No more damnit! suck it up! She is not your bag to throw your bullshit into! You know who you are! Stop complaining about shit, someone tries to do something nice for you and you act as if it is not good enough! Or you whine about how you want a fucking army to back you up!

About hackers on DA and what you can do"Hacker alerts" are pretty common around DA and it has been for a long time. Journals warning you that there is a hacker loose at DA and it will hack your account if you don't copy the journal and re-post it.About hackers on DA and what you can do2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Some variations can be: "There is a hacker that will block all your friends, leave nasty comments on other's profiles, will deactivate your account, will get you in trouble with the staff, etc." another could be "Don't watch *insert deviant's name here* because they will give you a virus if you do" there are a lot more variations, but you get the idea. These journals always end with something like "If you read this warning, spread the word and share it with your friends so they won't be the hacker's next victim!"
I know, reading something like this can feel terrifying and you might feel compelled to spread the word, you don't want you friends to be a victim of this terrible hacker!
I know that people re-post these journals with good intentions, trying to warn others about this sup
