FC's And OC's--There's A DifferenceI noticed :iconasafary: was having a problem with this, and I just wanted to help her out a littleFC's And OC's--There's A Difference5 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not sure how to start this off. Didn't plan this ahead of time XD Well, I read that artsist's journal today, and I noticed she's on to something here. The most of you guys have little dragon characters, right? That at some point or another have something to do with Malefor or meeting Spyro--something like that. Those characters are NOT original characters. They're fan characters. It's not a big deal; whether OC or FC, it's still YOUR character, and you can make whatever you please. But calling it an OC is basically saying you got the design, style, species, pattern, etc. all from your own mind. That isn't the case with some people. Some people take the design of Cynder, mix it up a little, and call it an OC. It's okay if you make characters off the designs of Spyro and Cynder, that's COMPLETELY fine. But they're not OC's, they're FC's.

Ubisoft Bullshit, Nintendo Wins, Link is a girlNow that the E3 dust has started to settle we can focus on some of the stuff that happened earlier this week in more detail.Ubisoft Bullshit, Nintendo Wins, Link is a girl2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When asked about why there was no female playable assassin in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game, Ubisoft made the bad decision to try and justify it. They said that a female assassin was planned, but that they didn’t have the resources to implement it because it would’ve require too much extra work and “business is business” after all.
I call bullshit on that. It’s been well known that adding a female character to a game doesn’t increase the budget much (if at all), and many of the same animations and actions can be applied to both male and female characters. Even Jim Sterling addressed this issue (2 years ago) by asking people in the industry how “hard” it is to add female character models and the answer is... not hard at all really:

New Username Symbols
With 13,000 new deviants joining deviantART each day, we want to ensure everyone's user experience is seamless. A common question from new and old deviants alike is: "What do username symbols mean?" Over the years, as we’ve surveyed deviants, we’ve found that very few understand symbols.
As part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.

**Collab is currently CLOSED! Thanks for all joining!!**
's spread the word and makes a difference!
Hello there my fellow deviants!
I bring you the next collab theme!
This collab was the first collab I ever ran and I was overwhelmed to have 166 people!! I was a Gallery Moderator (Community Volunteer) at the time and tried lots of failed experiments with the community. When I failed all those times I learned more what the community likes and then came up with the idea to draw Kirbies to celebrate their 20th anniversary! I would like to walk back in time and draw Kirby again for charity!!
Examples from the First Collab!!
Don't forget to look backMany people say that looking back is a bad thing to do, because it makes you dwell on the past and is getting you nowhere.Don't forget to look back2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I beg to differ! Because I think it doesn't hurt to look back on what you already achieved, every once in a while.
In contrary; it can be a great motivation.
I came to DeviantArt, almost 7 years ago, with close to no expectations.
To provide you a bit of a background; As a kid, I used to show my drawings to all the people around me (to the level of sheer annoyance). And in the early years of the internet, I posted my writings and drawings on several Dutch forums, where I got quite the feedback on it. But as social media gradually took over the internet, and the small forums I used to reside on died a slow death, I realized the stage of getting feedback there would soon be over for me.
DeviantArt was in that sense the next place to move to. A community that wasn't killed by the influence of social media. But it was a hard place to move to.

PureThe thing about getting known is that people say funny things to you. Most of it is bullshit. Some of it is true, and some of it is downward inconsiderate. Some of it does make me think, though.Pure2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
One of those things said to me, a while ago, was that I wasn't so much of an artist.
That, despite the fact that I was decently known on the internet nowadays, I didn't make actual great art.
(The actual comment phrased it somewhere along the lines of "famous as hell, but still draws like a college art student")
And you know what I thought? This guy actually did have a solid point. The way he worded it down was just... not so clever.
Throughout my life I've seen people with great skills in everything. I've learned soon enough that people typically see themselves as either a left-brain or a right-brain thinker, meaning so much that their either go with logic or intuition, and are often either good with numbers or social skills/art (that come with that). While many of these tests whe

What mood is that?
You are well-aware of the importance of this project, in fact you can't wait to get to it! Too bad you promised your friends to go for a drink, and then there's that movie. Also, your productivity is at its strongest at Midnight, first Tuesday after the Full Moon, starting earlier would be a waste of time. Make sure you are well-rested! After all, is there a better way to prepare yourself for a productive tomorrow than an enjoyable today?
Your diagnosis: Procrastination positive.

Tips for smooth clean line artHi,Tips for smooth clean line art3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Is your line art shaky, wobbly, sloppy, fat, uneven or pixelated? The subject of clean line art comes up a lot so I've gathered together a number of tips from various DA members that may help you improve your line art. Some of the techniques described below may contradict other techniques described below so you may want to experiment and decide what works best for you. Most of these assume that you have a digital tablet. (Make sure your tablet drivers have been installed correctly. If your cursor is behaving erratically it may indicate a problem with your tablet or drivers.) Some posts have been edited for brevity or spelling:
"I developed my own technique. And it works quite well for me. It raised my Lineart cleanliness from 24% to 98%, yeah, really. Here is how I do it digitally when I'm not using a traditional sketch:
First a rough sketch, and I isolate it in its own layer then set its opacity to 50 or something near that value.
Then on the second layer
Do's and don'ts for flawless interactionNot much to say about this.Do's and don'ts for flawless interaction2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Just some basic tips and tricks for flawless interaction on DeviantArt
Watch people when you honestly find them interesting.
Watch your friends, even if they don't have amazing art. It helps you stay updated with their progress.
Watch groups. They'll offer you a fine selection of art you're interested in, and will help you discover new (interesting) artists.
Check the faves of people you watch. As you like their work, you might have similar tastes in art. Checking their faves might help you find cool art.
Recommend art from people that you watch for a Daily Deviation (if good art, of course).
Uncheck all boxes when watching. There's nothing more disappointing than an empty watch.
