What Went Wrong...?This is a RANT. If you can't handle it, then don't read this. This rant is only happening because of a journal I read last night.What Went Wrong...?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do NOT take this personally.
Hi. My name is pixiepearl. I came here about a year ago. Since then the winx community has become disfunctional, alot of great artists have left the DA domain, and I personally am ashamed.
Why ashamed? Is it because everyday I have to read a journal entry about art being disgracefully stolen? Or maybe it's because there's always a spammer trying to annoy every user in this community. Or even the face that the latest bitch trend is TROLLING? I am personally ashamed that because of the disfunctio on this website has everyone having to look out for thieves and trolls, spammers and just plain creeps. But what makes me more ashamed that I can say maybe 10, 20 users have left because of this. Even after a huge misunserstanding over the summer between some of the Starlets I considered leaving, the only thing stopping me is m

MMD In defense of rip artists ...MMD In defense of rip artists ...2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
DeviantArts (DA) is probably unique in several ways, but the thing that I've found strangest and have had the most difficulty with grappling with is their tolerance(?) of "rips". Which is why I think this could be an interesting discussion.
"Rips" are models taken from commercial computer and video games and used for "something else". Make no mistakes about it, probably 99.99% of rips are illegal in the sense that they were "stolen" from something else. Which, given the existence of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), makes it kind of strange that DA tolerates any rips on their servers at all. May be they really do deserve the kind of reputation that they receive on other forums on the Internet, or they just aren't making enough money to be worth the bother to sue. Who knows? The fact remains is that at the moment DA seems to be a safe haven for rippers and nowhere are they perhaps more visible than in the MMD field.
Then again, there's ano

Thank you so much for your kind messages. It really cheered me up to read all your well wishes. I will try and get back on track with dA asap and thank people for fanarts and fanfictions. You've really been making my days happy ^__^
I've been ill for just over a month now, I think this is the longest I've been ill but I'm on the mend and not in so much pain now, so fingers crossed my chest will clear up soon. Bleh, I feel old XD
Speaking of which, I've been immersing myself in nostalgia for both work and free time. If you were a child of the 80's you might remember the Jim Henson series, The Storyteller. An absolutely incredible display of classy, incredible puppet horror and culture. Seriously, this show scared the bejeesus out of me when I was younger but I loved it and I'm so happ

Chat Tutorial #3 - Customizing your Chatroom!Ez a Tutorial Magyar nyelven is elérhető!Chat Tutorial #3 - Customizing your Chatroom!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Let's get started
Let's see if there's any official FAQ about it:
There's quite some! I recommend you to always read these FAQs before doing anything or visiting :#help: on dAmn
So, let's try out something, shall we?
When you enter your freshly created room you'll notice the following things:
The Title are will be empty
There will be no topic area
You will be placed into 'Guests' by default
You may ask the following; Why am I in the Guests privclass?
It's simple: because the room is in need of setting up and since you've just created it, no one ever joined it before!
You must promote yourself into the highest (Founders is the default privclass for that) group there, so others will know that you're in charge of that room!
How to do that?

Okay, I've decided on the contest idea for the free Commission!
Design a new character for me!
I love Toli, but I would love to have another character to add to the two I have so far.
First: Free bust of any simple character and 200
Second: 100 and a computerized hug
Third: A stale fart in a glass jar (50)
No buying a design!
No other obvious stuff and such!
Try to make him/her look different from the character I already have~
Have fun! Feel free to make interesting designs and even hybrid species!
[Bullet; Blue] I don't like colors that look unnatural like harsh purple or neon green. I like soft colors, and I especially love great color schemes.

As you know there are limitless ways to create a Meme. It has many layouts and styles and no real base or tutorial to use. Here are some simple steps to think about when creating a basic Meme.
Keep in mind, that these are not official steps or requirements to create a Meme. If you have any concerns or questions, please let us know.
step one: Think of the main subject.
What is the subject of your meme? What is it going to be about, based on, etc. Is it random? Personal? Fun? Strict? About favorite games or people? Once you can think of the overall subject of your meme, it will help with the kind of content you want in the body of your meme.
step two: Think of body.

And since tumblr has a following size that's a third of my dA, a lot of people may be missing my WIP shots. So I hope it won't bother anyone that I make and update journals that show my process. I hope you'll find them interesting and inspiring. And also, I hope people will stop asking me what program I work in lol on top of the fact that it's listed in my interests under Tools of the Trade, I've also had a FAQ made so please check those before asking questions.

To Watermark or To Not Watermark.....A few questions to ask yourself first.To Watermark or To Not Watermark.....8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A. Do you value your own artwork?
B. Are you proud to tell the world you created your own artwork?
C. Do you value other peoples artwork enough to not steal?
The answer to all of these should be YES! (If its no MySpace is that way --> )
Its a sad fact but un-watermarked large pictures are a rippers dream come true... DA is a proven gold mine for anybody wanting to take up art theft as a hobby, and just because you have a written disclaimer in your description stating that your artwork is not to be redistributed hardly makes a difference. Anybody who has browsed the net or received a dreaded note stating that your art has been ripped will know intimately how disheartening and sickening it is, and what an almost futile fight it is to try and get the artwork removed or the ripper shut down. Watermarks don't have to be horrible clunky things that destroy the artwork its supposed to be protecting, and they really could mean

They are the three words that roil the senses like no others, that stir an inner emotional stew of mixed emotions that inscribes us, for both good and bad, for a lifetime. It's the inevitable arrival of late summer and the call to the classrooms that makes us tremulously anticipate the new anxieties and challenges that are about to be sprung upon us – but also the sweet rewards of ascending to new levels in pursuit of a life goal. For visual artists on their personal missions to achieving their own unique visions of success, in art and life, it is once again time to seek out the guiding wisdom of the old masters as well as the new kids with all the new tricks of the trade.
