My introduction that you don't really need to read:
This is my first contest, so please don't hate me
So I decided I want to draw a manga (action/ 'horror' / little bit of comedy , etc) and what do you need when you create a manga? An OC of course! Unfortunately, although I have a nice image for my other characters, the MAIN character, the HEROINE/HERO still has not been created! So your job is to make one!

Greetings! It's time for the 17th Grimoire Rose Contest! I allowed you all to choose the character and theme for this contest, so I hope to see lots of amazing entries. So get those gears going and show me what you've got! There are lots of awesome prizes, so don't miss out.
WHAT IS GRIMOIRE ROSE: Grimoire Rose is a comic project that I am working on with my husband. The world and all characters within belong to us and we wish to share their story with you! Keep an eye out and watch the group below if you wish to follow the story.

CONTEST - CLOSEDHey everyone, the contest is now CLOSED! Thank you to everyone who entered and donated prizes! The winners should be up either tonight or tomorrow~CONTEST - CLOSED10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alright guys, so by request the contest deadline has been extended until MONDAY NOV 10, 11:59 pm EST. This will likely be the last extension, but if you still need more time than that, please let me know!
Hey guys~ So a few people voted on my poll to say they'd like an extension, so I'm extending the deadline by one week! That means the deadline is now November 7!!
Also if you'd like to donate a prize, it's not too late! I'm still accepting prize donations right up until the deadline date! You can either comment here or send me a note if you'd like to donate a prize
So yeah, I'mma hold a contest. I haven't done one in quite a long time. Apparently, as of October, I've been on deviantART for like ten years, so I guess this is like a ten-year anniversary contest? Anyway, kind of stole the idea

Betta Fish DiseasesBetta Fish Diseases5 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Feel free to note me if you have any questions regarding bettas or any other tropical fish. If you do not note me and leave a comment instead I cannot guarantee that I will respond in a timely manner, and time can be life or death when it comes to fish!
All responsible betta fish owners want to see their betta live a long and healthy life. But how do you know if your little buddy is sick? What are the signs of illness? And if he or she is sick, what is the culprit and how can you fix it? What should you keep on hand to help fight disease? How can you avoid illnesses? CORRECT HUSBANDRY IS KEY!
KEEP THE WATER CLEAN. Water changes are perhaps the most important factor for fish health. Don't be lazy!
Anything less than 1 gallon is unacceptable for a betta unless you are jarring multiple fry (under 1 inch long). The more, the better. Those little tiny contain
Challenge 5 - Music - TOP 5Please check out those awesome works,Challenge 5 - Music - TOP 53 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sorry for taking while to give a result. It was a wonderful but hard time for me to choose top 5 since everyone seems like music theme. We have more entries than usual challenges and actually the most wonderful thing is quality of all entries are growing up. Isn't it amazing? I was so excited to see them all, therefore if you have time, please take a look at whole entries since I am sure you can find several great artists there to watch: http://hellobaby.deviantart.com/favourites/47401935
(BTW, if I miss any entries in the challenge fav folder, please tell me since sometimes I forget to add it in while I am watching them around. Thank you,)
Also look at them make me wish I could choose more, not only top 5. Yeah, it has been a really hard time to pick top 5 only (sorry, I wish I could pick more):
If you didn't make it, please don't be so upset, other challenge

Guide: How to Respond to Sue CriticsIntroGuide: How to Respond to Sue Critics3 months ago in Personal More Like This
This guide is aimed primarily towards fan character creators who have either been attacked before or are worried about getting attacked by critics and/or Sue bullies. These are my personal suggestions on how to handle being confronted by a critic and/or Sue bully based on my experiences in, well, being in situations where my friends have been attacked unfairly (from small cases to full out "flame wars") and being a character reviewer myself (both private and public - though mostly private these days).
Terms for Convenience Canon = what is "official" for a show, series, etc; aka, facts about the original content that can't be argued
Fan character = a character created by a fan that is inserted into a fandom
Mary Sue = originally defined as a "completely perfect character," but has now been so abused that its actual definition and classifications are up

Disney layoffs, 2D animation, and youA very nervous animation student (he didn't say, but I assume he is studying 2D animation) asked me about my opinions on the state of animation these days. What are the companies thinking with laying off all the employees, not doing 2D animation, canceling great TV series, etc.? Are the business people just evil? AND the even bigger question: Is John Lassiter a jerk (or worse) for letting all the 2D animators at Disney go yesterday?Disney layoffs, 2D animation, and you2 years ago in Personal More Like This
MY ANSWER: I have a slightly controversial (for an artist) perspective on businesses and business people. Over all, I like them. At times, I have even been grateful for them. (Steady paychecks should never be taken for granted. Wait till you don't have one one day, then you'll know!) Remember, we live in a world where businesses are expected to make money to stay alive. It's called capitalism. Others call it "business". That means, the animation world isn't any different from any other job/company
Why you shouldn't care about Mary SuesSo I'm posting this not only in defense of GazeRei but lots of other people with OCs. I'll be focusing mainly on DG-M and OCs in general.Why you shouldn't care about Mary Sues4 months ago in Personal More Like This
The heck's a Mary Sue, Misa?
"A Mary Sue is a character that the author identifies with so strongly that the story is warped by it. Sometimes male Sues are called "Gary Stus," but more often the name is used for both sexes of offenders."
Gosh golly, Misa! That sounds bad. Well, for writing, it is. If you're writing and aren't giving characters proper development and thought, then your story will definitely be bland and uninteresting (as EVERYTHING would go the Mary Sue's way), but often it's MORE than just a character that ruins a story, so it shouldn't be the focal issue in the first place. I feel though, that for characters that aren't directly involved in writing/RP-ing, that this term shouldn't be used.
Why you shouldn't care
Everyone at some point who makes OC

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?3 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

It has been on my mind for a while and since no group here really gives more in depth care about their members welfare , why not let us do something different for once .I mean DA is not just a place for arts , its a place to learn , grow and CARE for each other and sadly its like a platform now for the "super famous" artists and those lesser known artist will be buried with the influx of new members and then , they will leave eventually . I mean , we want members here to stay with us for as long as possible and we want to be closer to you guys and so , why not lets care and share with each other and be happy ....
For people who has issues with their arts and would like to learn more about arts , feel free to contact me and I will point you to the correct channel and I would love to chat about arts with you guys . Also , for those who has real life issues like bullying , family issues , friends issues etc whatsoever , please come to me and I wi
Hadaka Shitsuji review (warning R18 review)Where. Do. I Begin?Hadaka Shitsuji review (warning R18 review)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, finishing a visual novel takes time. There's plenty of recorded lines that can go up to twenty hours, maybe even more. And when you finish reading the unrecorded lines, be prepared to add in another 10 hours or so.
It takes time to commit. If you go out to work/school everyday, how many hours can you commit to read the VN everyday? This game, Hadaka Shitsuji, plainly put, is awful, is awful for me.
Hadaka Shitsuji (Thereafter written as H.S) is a Yaoi VN, particularly made for people who want Yaoi in their reading materials. You might be asking what's Yaoi, and my advice to you is not to go near this genre, if you don't know what that concept is in the first place. As a male reader, this game is mostly ranked in the negatives, but hey, I must be wrong since VNDB gives it a strong 7.65/10 average as of this article.
SM, epicaricacy and domination. These are probably the top three nouns that comes to my mind. (Can't believe I'm even writing this down in
