Ok, so here's the deal: Tracing/copying/stealingBefore reading on please bear in mind that this journal is not written in anger. It's where I stand on these particular issues.
Please, try to have an open mind here and respect this journal as a statement, not a personal assault on someone/anyone.
Also please refrain from posting comments about how stupid, immature, rude, selfish, crazy, dramatic this kind of journal is.
Please stop stealing my characters, stop tracing my artwork, and stop copying my ideas and pawning them off as your own.
I realize I probably sound like an asshole but honestly I don't know how else to put it other than just flat out 'stop it'. I've tried to be nice and sugar coat it but that doesn't seem to work. Not ever watermarks and bold lettering do. But at least this way I can say I did say something about an

imma let you finish...but...
you're a moron. pls stop ;*
who are you to tell someone else that they should be more creative? or charge less for their time or ideas? just because of the actions of OTHER people who obviously see some sort of real merit to that person's art/design/species/whatever.
just because you do not agree with that or you are jealous does not mean you have to be a nasty little prick.
i can't believe there are people on kawiku's page telling her that she's being greedy? please sit there and tell me that you would NOT sell premade designs on one set of lines for tons of money if you could. PLEASE TELL ME THAT YOU WOULDN'T DO THAT BECAUSE YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE COMMITTED TO YR CRAFT
sometimes you don't feel like doing a ton of different lines when you're in a designing mood. YOU JUST WANT TO COLOUR PRETTY THINGS! and if you can sell them for $50 a piece, that's
Responses to my last article (pt.1)So after reading comments on that latest article http://fav.me/d6q4snq about 'humanizing wolves' I noticed a lot of people argued or debated quite a few points. Points I felt I should try to cover in a sort of Q&A section here.Responses to my last article (pt.1)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
KEEP IN MIND PLEASE: In some parts of this there is personal opinions but I have included facts which can be backed up by research and by searching the internet as well. I've tried to cite sources as much as I could and give sound evidence when possible. I cannot be held completely liable if some information is outdated and I'm unaware but I would be glad to learn the updated information IF you have it accessible.
Now, let's begin!
1. Wolves can be tamed! My 'so-and-so' owned a wolf and it was the best pet I've ever seen! You're wrong if you think wolves can't be tamed!

i notice, and have experienced countless times, that a lot of younger users on this site tend to do something akin to self depreciation when attempting to praise others work.
thats…really not ok. like really really not ok
im going to be using direct addressing pronouns “you” without actually referring to anyone specific, but, by you saying something like “oh ill never be as good as you” or “im so jealous of your work” or “i want your style/skills” in a directly envious and self depreciating tone, you are honestly doing NO ONE any favors. its rude, childish, and hurtful to say things like that, to both sides. you think i want to hear you talk down about yourself in an attempt to make me feel good? why would that make me feel g

'Idols and Popularity' Disscussion TopicTHIS IS JUST A DISSCUSSION, OPINIONS ARE WELCOME'Idols and Popularity' Disscussion Topic1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Let's talk about "Idols" and "Popularity" on deviantart..
To be honest, I had to agree with thousands and maybe millions of others...that A B and C were the most page viewed, thousands of watchers, deviation faved gods...I thought their art were worship worthy.
Yes, I enjoyed capukats, rinermais, griffsnuff, rai-doos, smusheys...so on so forth's art. But what i realized that when I visited other artists page., they ALMOST HAD THE EXACT "Idols" and "Artists I love to be watched by" lists.
I MEAN WE MIGHT AS WELL SAID "ARTISTS I WISH I WERE LIKE" "ARTISTS' TALENTS I WISH I HAD"
I mean it was like a virus...it was very sad to see many young and older artists post on their "idols" page:
"I wish i had your talent.."
"My art never will be great as yours"
"Your art is so cool. Can we be friends?"
"How did you draw .... can you tell me your secret"

Okay [species rant]I feel like I should just warn people about somethingOkay [species rant]5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Original species can be a super fun thing to get into! The very creative ones especially, I am very fond of
Now, I personally don't give two shits if you want to take a dog, give it a theme and put things on it, and call it a closed species, I honestly don't, as long as you aren't attacking people for having similar ideas on such a basic concept, this goes for any 'raw/basic' species design. I've said something about this in the past here.
However I feel like you guys should know, you should really stray away from raw/basic species designs because lately some people are getting very irritated by them and if you have one, you will likely be judged as 'oh another person with those uncreative species' and people may even get violent. I do not want people to fight over something so silly.
As always I encourage you guys to
The most important thing (original species tips)I'm gonna go ahead and delete the last species tips journal I made, I thought about it a lot and figured out how to word the most important things of species making (to me) better. I think the last journal just contributes to stressing people out more when it comes to making a species others will find 'original' or not, which wasn't my intention, so I'm replacing it with this.The most important thing (original species tips)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Above all else, you need to be enjoying yourself. You don't want to be doing something that's going to cause stress or even drama, when it's not even something you're having fun doing, what would be the point of it then?
I'll explain a thing. When it comes to original species, the most appeal (for me at least, and I know I'm not alone) comes from how much of the creators have been put into the design. YOU are unique: the way you think, the things you like, the way you were raised, your inspirations, your fears, your values, and THAT is what makes a species 'original', it's you. So with this in mind, when you make

my thoughts on homophobiaHello everyone! I know this topic is very controversial and touchy, but I've been thinking about it for a while and wanted to share my thoughts, but feel free to ignore this little rant if you don't want to read it.my thoughts on homophobia1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been thinking to my self lately about homophobia and, frankly, how stupid it is. As a Christian, I feel like I should be against people being gay, and to be completely honest, I used to be homophobic; all my life I've heard that its a "sin" to be gay. But after thinking for a long time, I realized just how closed-minded and inconsiderate it is to be homophobic.
Gay people don't want to rape your wife, burn down your house, or eat your first-born child; they just want to love.
I find it extremely ironic that there are whole groups whose soul purposes is to prevent people from loving. Doesn't that sound stupid?
And what is their reason? because it is a sin? Well, I've read the Bible and there isn't just one sin, theres a whole bunch

Pet peeve 2I've seen this happen more than once. "This reminds me of pokemon. This reminds me of Okami. This reminds me of your ass."Pet peeve 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seriously, what do you think you achieve with a comment like that? Is the artist supposed to feel better that his/her oc looks like the fandom you're at the moment fapping to? Most of the artists I know want to be recognized for their own characters and ideas, and most of the time they haven't even thought - or better yet, heard - at all of that thing when the picture was created.
"This reminds me of--" is not a compliment. It's not a critique. It gives nothing new, but it makes you look like a snob who can't accept that when there is billions and trillions of people maybe might think of same kind of idea what someone else thought. If, as a comment, it's something, it's actually an insult of someone's imagination. Or, maybe, the person was actually inspirated about something. Let's say, he was inspirated by some pokemon. He liked the design and wanted

- You can not change the basic design of a Mais, you only design the colors and markings.
- Mais can not have glow markings.
- Keep the designs simple, "less is more".
- Designs should preferly be symmetrical.
- You may design as many Mais as you want, but only a limited number of them will be able to win.
- If I think your design is good, but could still use a bit of tweaking I will do so. But you will still get the credit for the design.
- You don't need to make designs based on real life creatures/objects.
If you want, you can use my Mais Template to make your designs with, which can be found here
