Sorry about the title. It was stuck in my head so I had to xDD.

It takes me a while to put these together, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys!
These are ordered first come first serve style; I will be showing around 50 pieces at one time (I still have a lot to go through and it adds up every time i put up a feature journal), and be featuring once a week as to not clog up your message boxes. It'll probably take ....a few months, so please be patient!
Watcher's Feature 2 - the return of the pimp #2Before anything else, i'd like to ask peeps without a subscription/premium membership a question: can you guys still post thumbs without a sub? Cause the last time I didn't have a sub, the journal was literally featureless. since I want to save the points people donated for giveaways during Christmas (I failed to do one last year because i was in China I had a really limited access to internet at the time), I'm hoping dA still have thumbnails for sub-less people so I can keep doing this even when mine run outWatcher's Feature 2 - the return of the pimp #22 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Printing your own manga: Ka-Blam, Lulu or else?Greetings everyone,Printing your own manga: Ka-Blam, Lulu or else?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since a lot of people here are manga artists, I was wondering if I could ask you something:
Do you print your own manga?
I've been visiting some PODs websites (Print On Demand) and so far, when it comes about publishing your own comic or manga, I've stumbled on KA-BLAM.com & LULU.com. I've read reviews from people who have used their services in the past and the opinions are quite mixed. I heard about ComiXpress, but it goes shot down...
Anyone among you ever experienced one of these printing services? And how was it? Who is better among these two? Please let me and everyone else hear about it. Thank you.
Initial Release of the Motion Book ToolIn April of last year, we announced a partnership between deviantART and Madefire, bringing Madefire's signature Motion Books to deviantART and introducing a new form of storytelling to the world's largest art community.Initial Release of the Motion Book Tool1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
We also announced that Madefire's professional-grade Motion Book Tool would be brought to deviantART—giving deviants the opportunity to turn imagination into a visual, auditory, and literary masterpiece, and showcase their art alongside some of the industry’s greatest creators.
After months of development and testing, we are excited to announce that the gradual release of the Motion Book Tool has begun, and you're (very likely) among the first to gain access. Having access to the Tool means you can create dynamic Motion Books just like the pros, and publish them directly from your deviantART account!

World War 3 may just be months away, with much of the middle east currently being blown apart by missiles and the locals setting their neighbours on fire, but the real news is that the Twinkie, the USA's primary contribution to world cuisine, could cease to be.
"You eat those?" I hear people ask. Hell no. Never eaten one in my life. There's something about their unnatural, chemical-yellow colour and that they have a half-life rather than a use-by date that just sets off one too many alarm-bells.
In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you read the print on the pack, you'll find asbestos to be a key ingredient.
Even John McClane can't keep one down, and he took out a building full of terrorists with nothing but his bare feet and a Santa hat.
Which leads to my point: Without the Twinkie, there are SO many lines from SO many classic movies that future generations just a
Small UpdateI've been gone from the internet for almost 2 1/2 months now, and chances are I won't be coming back for quite a while longer. Nevertheless I just wanted to give a quick update and thank all my fans who have been so supportive of me these past few weeks/months.Small Update2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been amazed at the number of genuine well wishes that I've received. I think the vast majority of my fans genuinely do enjoy my doodles and cartoons and that the well organized and extremely vocal "haters" of me and my work make up a very very VERY small percentage of my watchers. There have been some absolutely wonderful comments and messages being sent my way, and several of you have even sent me links to advice sites or inspirational posts. I truly do appreciate it. Thank you so very much.
I don't say Thank You enough, I think. Because of my fans I've been able to do some amazing things and I owe you guys a lot. Because of you'all, I've been able to visit another country and make friends from all over the world, somethin

Its all a ScamContextIts all a Scam2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is another long one, and I apologize but I need to speak my mind. This journal is in response to the "righteously indignant" users making a fuss about me "selling" fanart of copyrighted characters in my recent Adventure Time post. To the person who signed up today just to write a nasty comment on my new Society6 page. To the person who flagged my recent Adventure Time illustration on DA and then proceeded to send me an e-mail about doing it (probably the same person). To the people creating multiple accounts to try and dissuade users from spending their money how they see fit. And to a long list of people who follow everything I do post just to make sure that their negative voice and attitude are the first voices anyone ever sees on all of my work.
It's All A Scam
I'm in an unenviable position. Popular enough to be well known, not popular enough to be making oodles of cash off my stuff. Part of that is my own fault for not really promoting and selling myself,
Fandoms, Criticism Vlog, and Journals On FandomsFandoms, Criticism Vlog, and Journals2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Like most people, I'm a fan of a lot of things. However I don't often wade deep into fandoms themselves. For example, I like MLP:FiM, but I wouldn't call myself a hardcore Brony by any stretch of the imagination, as is evident by my continued botches of cutie mark colors (something no hardcore fan would EVER screw up).
Part of the reason I don't delve too far into fandoms is because fans can get very... emotional... about their given fandom. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it can sometimes be a crutch. I like a variety of series, but I'm not gonna throw a tantrum because of an episode name, or an animation mistake, like some people do. I don't like how angry or defensive fandoms can get sometimes, and for the most part I think people need to just calm down and relax and not be so standoffish.
Fans are, for the most part, good people who are just enthusiastic about a show or series. Just try to keep that enthusiasm from dipping into the negative side of thing
A Very Important UpdateI haven't posted here on DA in a while, so this might be new to a lot of you, but if you've been following some of the stuff happening over on tumblr it won't be unexpected. For the past several weeks I've been getting steadily worse both mentally and physically. I've been depressed before, but I've never been as bad as I've been recently. I've lashed out at people, been getting angrier and grumpier, been finding it harder and harder to listen to people giving me positive feedback, and have even started rapidly losing a lot of weight.A Very Important Update3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My enjoyment for drawing has been dropping, and many of you have probably noticed that I've been taking more and more time off lately. For every few comics I post, I tend to spend another week recuperating. But within the past 2 weeks it's spiked so bad that I seriously have to consider what's more important: my health or drawing.
So for the time being I am shutting down. I'll still be working on brentalfloss and updating those here, and the most current

"Advertise your art"
Just because you have the ability to create a group; it doesn't mean you NEED to!
What is the point in creating a group that has no specific purpose when you're already on DevArt?!
"Oh, I'll create a group that will show any kind of photo"
Why create such a group when you can just hit "photography" on the DevArt front page?
"I'll create a group that'll display the work of anyone that wants to draw attention to their art"
Why create a group for that when it's already DevArt's PRIMARY PURPOSE?!

Mini Movie ReviewsWith a 8 1/2 hour plane flight to and from England, and with downtime a result of stress, illness, and jet lag, I've been watching a lot of movies recently.

John Carter of Mars
John Carter was a troubled movie in every sense of the word. It was given enormous studio backing, wasn't publicized well, and generally was a box office failure, resulting in a key Disney executive to resign in disgrace.
I won't say that it's the best movie I've ever seen, but it's far far above average and it frustrates me that people didn't see it or take to it. It offers so much wonderful imagery and possibilities for filmmaking it would be a shame to see this potentially new (in the sense that it's new to the big screen) franchise die right at the start.
There are a few weak actors, primarily the Mars princess, but they still nevertheless keep the story running at a nice pace. Plus there a

Well, the Tomb Raider contest is over and I didn't win. But that's cool, and I always love my artworks. Even if they aren't awesome as the other super damnyouallskillfulbastardsandgodsofdigitalarts.... yeah. Ahem.
Anyways, I'm just gonna try to help a friend out. See, its been seven years these two lovebirds have been together, they are engaged and hope to get married soon. My friend Jane was suppose to move to the UK to be with her soon to be husband, Brendon, but due to a recent rejection of her visa, she needs money to re-apply again for the frigging visa (damn you immigration department, get yo shit together).
So she started a mini indiegogo donation project in exchange of artworks and stuff: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/love-across-the-globe
She also has a DevART account here: http://arilysal.deviantart.com/
So yeah, if you do wanna have some artworks done by her, just to help her out, that's cool. Or if you believe in true love and just wanna help out, by all means

for artists and writers: on finding consultsI hope the way I'm handling magic realism can inspire other artists, writers, and viewers in general to be more critical of fantasy--whether it's something you create or just enjoy.for artists and writers: on finding consults1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Because the more scrutinous the fans, the more creators have to get with it, and the more with it the creators are, the cooler shit we have going around.
So here are some ideas to make your shit cooler.
1. Research, reference, and find consults. This is far easier than a lot of people think it is. Searching on the internet is great, but you're likely to get a lot of overly-complicated, irrelevant information at first--and then later, it won't be specific enough. Books are a lot better because they cover topics in a broader way with a lot of related ideas you might not think to search but end up super important to what you're doing. So go to the library, or the bookstore, and take notes while you're in there if you don't want to buy things. But if
