Credit Where Credit Is DueGetting credited for the work you do is the most simple wish that is shared by every single artist alive. Whether you draw stick figures doing something silly, or unique master works of scenes from fantastical worlds, or characters ranging from simple and cartoony to complex, detailed and realistic. You obviously want to get a little acknowledgment for your work, even if it's a simple thumbs up or anything really.Credit Where Credit Is Due2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it is incredibly understandable to be upset or disheartened when people mistake work you do for the work of another artist. Whether be simply because they saw the character or concept done by someone else first before seeing what was originally done. Or just something similar.
It can be as simple as not checking the credits most artists give when they draw characters that belong to others, it can be a careless first glance mistake, but that doesn't really excuse the fact that when you mistake a character or concept for the wrong artist who did it, it annoys and hurts them.

- Nothing makes you appreciate life more than 10 minutes in a freeway.
- We ordered our recording equipment, and once it comes in, we'll start a few test videos.
- Our Let's Play channel will be called FartingExplosions. It will be up in a few days.
- As soon as I work out a schedule to work balancing college, friends, computer, and doodling, I can begin work on Machine. Voice auditions are still up.
- I'm getting a Paypal to help financial stuffs at home, so commissions might happen. I'm thinking of a baseline of $2-$10, and maybe song commissions. I would recommend trying to be original and not asking for constant video game remixes.
That is all.

Additional information for those who likes to read.
All A3 size prints are in 200 gsm matte paper. All A2 or A1 prints are in 180 GSM bond paper. If there's an artwork you have seen before but hard to find on my gallery cos I got too many artworks, here's a tip for ya, just google it up. If its a Zelda artwork then just type in 'Zelda Ry-Spirit' then look at the google images and see if its there, google is your friend! Or even just type in Ry-Spirit in google to see what images comes up, usually the most popular ones pop up first anyway. please write your address down properly, make sure the address is structured properly so I don't get the states and street names and stuff mixed up, cos I am not from your country and don't know how your country's Adress structure works... so yeah just beware of things like that.

What is "Enough"I've always wondered if I ever give enough or if I gave enough. It's boggled my mind for years but I never took it seriously as I should.What is "Enough"2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But after many events rather than just this week, I've realized that I haven't been giving enough and my main reasons always involve shyness or other insecurities. Even when I had the chance I just never took full advantage of it. And now I have to forever be haunted by this regret.
So to everyone, if you ever feel like giving to someone whether it's a friend, someone you admire, or just someone going through a bad time, then please do not be afraid to.
And you can give anything such as a hug, a picture, a small talk, a deep conversation, or even a simple message. Anything will mean something.
Believe me when I say that there is no limit and no one should judge you for giving a lot.
I made the mistake of not giving enough when given the chance and I don't want any of you guys to go through that.
I hope this really makes you think.

Commissions (Pay with TF2 items!!)Commissions (Pay with TF2 items!!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I ONLY use paypal for money payment! send to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll also have to pay the fee, sorry about that..
point goes to donation pool!
And yes! I do commissions for tf2 items/metal/keys now!
This is how it works:
* You can give me an offer of metal/keys/items, and I'll use a TF2 currency converter to see what it's worth and we'll figure out what kind of commission you can get.
* Tell me what kind of commission you want, and I'll find out how much it's worth (in metal) and you can pay with any kind of item.
~Note~ If you offer an item I already have or don't really want, I might ask for another offer or reject. So I'm most likely to accept metal or keys.

Good afternoon! I am in the mood to do a bit of vector work and have some time to do so for once, but I want to make some custom characters created by fans rather than show ponies, so I'm holding a contest of sorts to make it interesting! All it requires from you is a submission of your OC, so if you want a show-quality vector of your character, read the details below!
In the journal comments below, post an image of (or a link to an image of) your own original character. Please do NOT submit other peoples' characters, only your own. This art is simply a reference for me when creating your character, so be sure to choose one of good color and design quality to increase your chances of being selected and for better and more accurate end results.

Info for MachineSo I thought I'd tell you a bit about the series Machine we're working on.Info for Machine3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For one thing, it doesn't take place on Earth. From the trailer, you might have already figured that out.
The setting takes place during a 320-year-old war between two world powers. it's been so long, nobody remembers why the war even started.
The protagonist's name is Caandir. Pronounced Con-durr.
There is a diety. Her name is Hasiva.
There are limits to the Machine. For one thing, you can't use an entire planet. The device would absorb its gravitational pull and engulf itself in a small black hole.
Aside from the main theme song, (Already composed by Cody Woods) I will be composing the music.
There will be a fair amount of steampunk elements, because steampunk is awesome.
On a different note, we had a blast this Halloween weekend. Watching movies, getting dizzy on spinning tunnels in haunted houses, gettting craploads of candy. yeh.
Sucks I have physical fitness tomorrow.
And skins are gone. Curse you, dA-t

Won't Receive Points? And Convert Points to MoneyJust some quick tips~Won't Receive Points? And Convert Points to Money10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I often see people saying the commission widget won't work
or saying they didn't receive and lost the points when taking commissions using it.
This is most likely NOT a bug!
When using the commission widget, the points you earn will be showing
in your earning page instead https://www.deviantart.com/account/earnings/
Hint: This is also where you are able to convert
your points to money if you have Paypal ;>
I have seen people having this problem countless of times,
so I thought I could write a quick journal and hopefully it can
help the few people who had this little problem
