Art-for-Artists Project Stopped by dA TermsHello Deviants,Art-for-Artists Project Stopped by dA Terms2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A few people may have already noticed that yesterday my commission widgets were removed by the dA Staff. This was due to the fact that this project actually violated some terms and conditions. This was unknown to me as well as a few others that I had checked with. I was sent a note to clarify what went on, and asked for permission to share it with you today to clarify any issues.
I'm noting you today regarding your use of the Commissions widget.
While we understand and appreciate your desire to help your fellow artists with a charitable project of this type, unfortunately taking donations via the Commissions system is not a permissible usage of the widget. While your intentions were valid, unfortunately allowing such usage would open us up to many other areas of abuse by those with less noble intentions.
As a result of this, the commission purchases have been refunded to the original buyers and the funds removed fro

design contestHello again ^ ^design contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Considering the last journal, I decided to open my desing contest
The purpose of this contest is to find my fursona character:
is a long time since I try a character who is my fursona but I can not invent anything that satisfies me ...
space with the imagination: it can be any type of animal or fantastic animal. try to be original
I'm not very high: this can be a indizzio to create a character
I do not like to draw the hooves, insects, reptiles and dragon
you can ask questions about what I like or not, to give you an idea
DO NOT use pre-made lineart, or copy from other artists
being my fursona, the character can only be female
you can put accessories. Try not to make it too extravagant, though! Nothing piercings etc ...
This must be a finished picture! Must not necessarily be a reference, but should be done, with the color. I realize that some p
Die Ghul Show with ALIZADEH-ART!:icondasghul:: Welcome to my humble show, :iconalizadeh-art:!Die Ghul Show with ALIZADEH-ART!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do you enjoy being here?
:iconalizadeh-art:: i m realy happy and feel well in the ghoulish area,,i love attention,which artist dont like to feed his ego?
:icondasghul:: Oh, but actually there are some! Some artists actually seem to believe that feeding one's ego doesn't even match with art at all…
Your opinion on this?
:iconalizadeh-art:: liars,,i think every artist need an constructive opinion on his works so he/she can improve more and more,,a soft healthy massage for our ego is like a balsam for our soul,,if i just paint in my room the next 20years and doesnt show it to the world i cant improve,,hard work shoud be appreciated and i think ego is realy important as long as the artist doesnt go overrated and walking around with nose up into the sky.
:icondasghul:: So, where exactly is the thin line between being an artist and just walking around with your nose up into the sky actually situated, in your opinion?
Common Misconceptions: Crediting + CopyrightsHello everyone! In this “Common Misconceptions” blog we’ll be discussing “crediting” and basic copyright issues that have been circling around our community!

I can upload images I like that I found from around the internet
Absolutely not. This is DeviantART, the images you upload should either have been made by you, or you have permission to upload them. It’s also expressly against dA’s terms of service. If this is something you do, I warn you to stop. This is an offense that can result in being suspended or banned from deviantART. Furthermore, this is theft pure and simple. Don’t take anything that doesn’t belong to you. You wouldn’t want someone taking your hard work and using it without permission, so don’t put another artist in

I know it's been some time since the last informative journal. So here we go again! >: )
First of all I found a cool page for all of you who still have the dream of your own comic or manga!
It's also interesting for those who just enjoy reading good stories because you can legally read them here AND furthermore you help those artists with reading! ^___^
Well and once again I want to make a feature. But this time I want to introduce you some artits that I know (somehow) and really deserve some attention for their art and their personality!
Alex draws traditionally manga and anime art. He is very skilled when it comes to pencils! I mean have a look at this fanart and you'll see what I mean^^^:
Besides he's very very nice! It makes me happy to see that there are sill such nice ppl outside in this world! x3

MPG Project 2013! Last recipient chosenHi there, i'm The-Average-Alex and i am writing this journal to inform all of you guys of a project which i will be starting in 2013.MPG Project 2013! Last recipient chosen2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is the MPG Project?
The MPG project stands for "Monthly premium give-away project".
On the 15th of every month in 2013 i will be giving away a 3 month premium membership to one lucky deviant here on deviantArt.
I will only be choosing people who have registered to be part of the MPG project
Premium memberships that i give away as part of the MPG project do not count towards my 2013 prize budget so do not worry i will still be hosting competitions & other give-aways throughout the year.
How can i participate/register?
It's extremely easy, all you have to do is leave a comment and this journal.
Please remember to this journal as this it will add you to a list which i will be picking from.
What's the catch?
There is none -.-"
Y U NO ACCEPT MY KINDNESS!!!???

Taking care of your Chubby!Kc xDThat's right everyone, he's looking for a new home. Of course, I'll still be his admin, but he'll just be living with someone else. So, this should give you the basic info you need on how to take care of him. Leave questions in the comments below if you have any, please. xDTaking care of your Chubby!Kc xD2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Give him his shots DAILY. If one day is missed, it's all over for him.
2. Make sure you hide the junk food. He'll do anything to get his pudgy little hands on it.
3. Take his blood pressure every morning. This isn't mandatory, but it would be good to keep track.
4. Whatever you do: Don't. Sneak. Up. On. Him. You might accidentally kill him.
5. Keep the thermostat 70 degrees or under. He doesn't do well in hot climates.
6. If you have stairs in your house, be sure to have a chairlift. Carrying him is torture, believe me.
7. No fat jokes. He's very sensitive.
8. Don't tell him that he's gonna die if he doesn't improve his lifestyle. This REALLY scares him, and just saying that alone can kill him.
9. Put a n
MLP Resource: Minky Color Guide(Please keep an eye out for more helpful journals centered around plushie making! More will be made in the future!MLP Resource: Minky Color Guide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, keep checking back, as more characters and their colors will be added soon!)
MLP: Minky Color Guide:
Which minky color works best for ______ (insert MLP character here)?
This journal is an attempt to answer that question. There are more than 50 shades of minky out there, and as a plushie maker, I realize that it can be difficult to know which color will work best for the particular pony you're working on. This is made even more frustrating by the fact that many of the images of the minky do not show the true color!
I recently ordered a ton of swatches from fabric.com, and I'm continuing to collect swatches from various websites, in an attempt to get most of the minky colors. Because I have the actual fabric with me, I can compare it to the characters' colors to see which fits best, to ensure that you can make a plushie that is as show-accurate as possib
