I saw someone describing this issue much better, so I copied it. Scroll down.
Alright, maybe it's not only the fault of Deviantart, but this crappy point system helps. =_=
I see so many people asking like 1 - 5 points for an icon and other art, which is insanely low! And why do they do that? because it seems like a normal number, which isn't! 1 point is like 1 cent! All these artist who ask such a low price deserve so much more. Even if you're not so good. Please, think of the time you spent on your artwork and what that time costs for you (maybe a snack? Which can be 1 dollar or something, which is like 100 points!!). The only one I want to give 1 cent is maybe a baby who made a one second scribble. Only for the effort.
I know most here are here for hobby, but if you want to become a professional artist, ask a fair amount of points. Or real money if you can because you can't do much with points, you can't really convert them (I saw there is a way, but deviantart takes a bit
Sexiest Female Game Characters (in my opinion)Compiled for no real reason other than that I felt like making a list. Might do some fan art, tooSexiest Female Game Characters (in my opinion)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
List is in order of appearance:
Princess Daphne (Dragon’s Lair, 1983)
Daphne is a cliché, blonde damsel in distress, yes, but she’s a cliché, blonde damsel in distress that was animated by Don Bluth, who had a stack of Playboy magazines on hand while he was drawing her.
Tyris Flare (Golden Axe, 1989)
Like a Frank Frazetta pic come to life….and then dressed in a bright white bikini by the Censors.
Also: That 360 game of hers really wasn’t that bad.
Blaze Fielding (Streets of Rage 2, 1992)
At some point between Streets of Rage 1 and Streets of Rage 2, Blaze must have washed her costume at the wrong temperature, because there’s a lot less of it. The horror.
Cammy (Super Street Fighter 2, 1993)
Chun Li had legs. Cammy has LEEEEEGS. And a perpetual wedgie.
Felicia (Darkstalkers, 1994)
C’mon. It’s me.
Mako HatePoor Mako. He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't in this fandom. In the beginning people were hating him because he was with Asami, and now people are hating him because he's being outwardly affectionate with Korra. It's a proverbial Catch 22 for Mako and he'll be hated no matter what decision he makes.Mako Hate3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, Mako should have told Asami about the kiss - the kiss that Korra instigated - but Mako admitted that he wanted to sort out his feelings first, which makes sense. Why cause immediate heartache when you don't have the answers that you know your significant other will demand? Of course Asami deserves an answer and maybe Mako was willing to give her one. Should he have given it to her after she lost everything? Would that have been the most opportune time? Would you love Mako, then? No, you'd still hate him and call him a douche.
Again, it would be great if Mako could make a choice, but life doesn't always afford you perfect segues, especially during a war. Did anyone

I have gotten a few questions about if it is safe to use or if it installs viruses, and as far as I am away, it doesn't.
And as for if it's not working, it is likely an issue with the computer itself, because it works for most people, I think.

It's International Polar Bear Day!Today is International Polar Bear Day!It's International Polar Bear Day!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's use this day to spread awareness for the bear of the arctic through art!.
A Bit About the Polar Bear
The Polar Bear is a bear of the arctic and only lives largely in the arctic circle.
This bear is the largest carnivore and largest species of bear.
The bears diet consists mainly of ringed seal.
Polar bear fur contains no pigment. The white is seen through the scattering and reflecting of light, much like snow or ice.
A Polar bear's skin is black, causing them to overheat when running for long periods of time.
A male bear is called a boar, while a female is called a sow.
Polar bears can swim for several hours at a time
Polar bears can run up to a surprising 25 miles per hour
Some Oil TipsIn the big-picture, I don't know that much about painting. But all that I do know comes from experience. I am completely self-taught, and have learned through a brutal system of trial and error. I'm not remorseful over any of that, learning the hard way has made me understand the chemical process of painting better than a list of do's and don'ts... I know why I do and why I don't. But I have to tell you that if somebody just told me some of the things listed below, I would be a shitload better at all this crap by now.Some Oil Tips10 years ago in Personal More Like This

For those of you that enjoy learning: you may find some of these "tips" at least something to consider.

PAPER (for watercolors):
Utrecht Watercolor block 140 lb/300 gsm - Double sided paper, rough on one side and fairly smooth on the other. What I love best about this paper is the velvety quality that shows up in washes.
Stonehenge 250 gsm - This is a multipurpose paper, usually used for printmaking. Washes blend really soft and well. I recommend using a little bit more water for printmaking papers like these because it is pretty absorbent.
Arches hot pressed 140 lb/ 300 gsm pad- Hot pressed paper is super smooth. I use it for things with lots of details. Or if I just don't want texture because texture scans weird sometimes.
Arches cold pressed 140 lb/ 300 gsm pad- Roughly textured. Nice for things with a lot of washes and wet-on-wet techniques.

Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

Snow Called, Jack CameSo, I was riding the bus home, and I was really depressed for some reason. I began to write a depressing poem and read it aloud. No one paid much attention to me. They continued to chat amongst their little groups.Snow Called, Jack Came2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I felt a cold familiar presence. It was Jack's presence. I looked up from my poem. I looked at the windows and saw that they all had become foggy. I felt a bit happier because I knew Jack was there. I wrote on the foggy window "Hi Jack." Then, I went back to writing. I looked back at the window and wrote it again, but this time backwards so Jack could read it. I went back to writing again. Then, I turned back to the window as the words faded away. I drew a snowflake on the window and smiled sadly. I was still feeling a depressed. I don't know why. I was happy earlier today, but I suddenly got very depressed for some reason. I was just about to look away when it started snow really hard! It was the most snow we're gotten this winter! And, it happened in April! In spring! (Ear
Character Design: An introductionCharacter Design: An introduction2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

I am a stickler for that sort of thing in writing and role playing, and since I'm in a bit of a rut I find myself unable to really come up with much.

NOT. A. COMPLIMENT.
God damn, it's not the 50's.
Putting your hands on a stranger because you like they way they look is NOT A COMPLIMENT.
Some random ignorant filthy street flotsam decided that it would be a good idea to let me know he liked the way I looked by smacking my ass. He unleashed from me a tirade of profanity that will echo down market street well into the future. I even got strangers to turn around and watch, which is a great feat considering all the bs that goes down on that cesspit of a street, most of which generally gets ignored.
I don't see how it computes that 'hey she looks nice' = 'hey it's ok to touch her'??? What part of the mind has to short circuit to think that's ok?? Look with your eyes, think with your mind, and LEAVE THAT PERSON ALONE. Didn't they teach that in the third grade?? FFS. He seemed surprised that I reacted the way I did.
I screamed at him that it's not ok
