Regarding Group Security and "Hackers"Hello Everypony,Regarding Group Security and "Hackers"2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This post is largely directed towards anyone who moderates or runs a MLP-related group on DeviantArt, but the information contained can be relevant to everyone.
Over the past few hours, there's been a note circulating around to various MLP groups, claiming that there is a small group of "hackers" (which is not the correct word) attacking MLP groups, taking them over, and vandalizing them. To counter this, the note is suggesting that groups should block all join requests, disable auto-accept, and then forward the note to every other group you know of.
Really, that's horrible advice, don't do that.
It is true that during the past few days, a couple of pony groups have been attacked by malicious users. However, there is no elaborate hack or security flaw that's allowing this to happen. Instead, the groups that were attacked simply had an incorrectly configured, yet easily fixable, setting in their group's permissions which allowed such attacks.
Most groups already are not
A warning to all MLP artists.I would advise you all to keep and eye on a site call 'Ponysquare'.A warning to all MLP artists.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is very common for users here to steal, repost, and recolour people's artwork. Most users think these acts are 100% ok, and they are in their rights to do.
I advise all artists to make and account and watch for your art being posted. The mods are fairly good with taking stolen art down once it is reported.
It doesn't matter if you think your art 'isn't good enough' to be stolen. Even ponymaker pics have been stolen by users here.
I find the easiest way yo keep an eye out for your work is too look here:

Any of you guys have Skype? I'd be very happy to add anyone that's interested. :> My Skype is Kaltiaem... surprise surprise xD
You guys HAVE to see this artist. He's extremely underrated. As usual, all of the beautiful, heartfelt artwork goes unnoticed, while the quick MLP doodles have a few hundred favorites and a few thousand views. It's frustrating.
I'd like to direct your attention to the amazingly talented :iconaguantegrimtales:!
Please go give him a few favorites and maybe a watch; he seriously deserves it!

It's me and I wasn't lost! I know that last time there is no activity from my side (however I finished the promo of my manga at least in Russian, yay! You can read it in English a bit later).
To be honest, now.... I'm in Japan for 2 days (and one day for a flight). I'm in Miyagi prefecture, in Sendai city ;DDD
Like student - there was a special program and I just decided to participate without belief or something ;DDD
It was a hard time for me (in March..? Yeah, in March): linguistic exams, health tests, colloquies, documents, and many more things brrrrrrr
And after I was waiting till June, and then I was told I'm okay for that program and could go. And now I'm here
So, this year (the first year of my life when I left my native country) I'll spend in Japan//// My dreams become true! >WW< I can't believe!
Even if I'm in my dormitory room, I still can't believe that it's a realit

I always keep imagining this world as full with all sorts of little creatures, that have their own lives and intentions. I guess that hasn't changed at all in these past seven years.
Watercolors. It feels like I haven't drawn nearly enough with them, even if I used them all the time before I got my tablet. I also picked up oil painting and porcelain painting this year, I guess that time was beginning for many things.
More watercolors. I got a tablet later that year - then I switched mainly to digital drawings.

My Progression as an Animator at DisneyA friend of mine is writing a book on animation fundamentals and asked me for a "paragraph or two" (which I can't do) on the subject of timing. I considered it and ended up writing about my progression of learning while a Disney animator in the traditional animation days. It was good therapy for me to really think this through and consider the order of things. I hope you enjoy it. "Like" or "fav" this so others will see it too.

My Progression As A Disney Animator
by Tom Bancroft
Walt Disney is quoted as saying that it takes 10 years to make a great animator.
When I was first coming out of California Institute of the Arts and joining a Disney internship in 1988, hearing that quote was devastating. 10 years? That's FOREVER! I wanted to be a full-fledged Disney animator in TWO years! I rationalized that that was a way of thinking from the 40s and today, we move at a quicker pace, so-
