Art theft in Steam / Counter-StrikeUPDATE: SIC (the other half of this collaborative gun skin design) has contacted me, saying that he was unaware that this canine piece was copyrighted to me. I don't blame him for this unfortunate event. We're currently working on to solve this, in the best case the Howl items on Steam will not be removed.Art theft in Steam / Counter-Strike1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Artist Identity and Art’s Purpose
A new movie, while only mildly stirring contreversy here in the USA, is causing quite an uproar in England. Anonymous is a big budget Molotov cocktail of a cultural provocation hurled by the producer-director of Godzilla and 2012, Roland Emmerich. He brings the same subtle and nuanced touch he exercised in those films to his latest film, in which he takes up the scorchingly contentious (if little known outside college literature departments) debate ongoing between the “Stratfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by the late-16th Century actor named Shakespeare) and the “Oxfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford
The profile picture issueYep. Another rant. It all started a few weeks ago.The profile picture issue2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Apparently there was a topic on DA's forum that was about "profile picture whoring". I honestly didn't know such a thing existed, let alone it would be allowed on DA (artists shaming, isn't it?). I don't even know the URL anymore, neither if it was removed by the mods or not. How I got to know about this topic, you ask? Well, I was tagged. Apparently my current profile picture was posted by someone in the topic, who obviously forgot that I would be mentioned when the picture was posted. The idiot :')
Anyhow. I understand DA's culture nowadays. While I can still remember the days on the internet in which you were only a written username with some text, nowadays the internet is all social media. And social media is full of people screaming for attention. Showing pictures of themselves, just to show how pretty they are and how much their lives are better than yours.

•Stumbled upon the above picture on tumblr. I first imagined a highschool bully for Abbey for TΛB. The idea for Hana to be Abbey's older sister came some time afterwards when brainstorming Hana's backstory.
•Stumbled upon this picture as well. Primarly saved the image as clothing refs for Michiko Toyoda. I always commented on how Cara (who's name I didn't even know at the time) looked like an ideal daughter for Michiko.
•So the base idea for Hana was set. She would be the daughter of someone with Michiko's likeness and instead of being

How to make friends on deviantARTThis is a remake of an old journal I made, but it seems like it's happening a lot around here again, so I'll be reiterating and adding more things to it here!

What Not To Do
Have you ever been asked by someone randomly, "Can we be friends?" ? Or perhaps someone simply acts as if you are their best friend, even when you don't know them. They may comment to others talking about you a lot, or call you by a nickname that only your friends use, write journals about you, send tons of notes or comments to you acting as if you're already best buddies, "mention" you all the time, jump into your conversations with someone else.... if so, these people aren't taking friendship forming seriously, and need to take a step back and evaluate themselves and their approach.
Friendship is not automatically made by asking for it.

TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE...." I haven't reached the point where I think I'm good at this. that's the drive. i know that its in me to be really good at it. and i think i've come close a few times, but i don't usually look at things i've completed and feel content. Which that means the next thing you start, you go in with that attitude that 'this time, I'm gonna get it right.' it doesnt mean you hate everything you do, but i'm never content. And maybe i never will be but i secretly know that that's what makes you grow." - Jamie HewlettTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE....3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Molestation is not a joke
Bipolar disorder is not a joke
Miscarriage is not a joke
Autism is not a joke
It really makes me sick when people act like these things are just some silly thing to toy around with a joke about. "Wow you look great today! *RAPES*". Yeah some people actually went through that? You want to ask them how funny they find it? "lol I think that girl got molested or something and that's why she acts weird." Is that really something to laugh about? "Haha she's like soooo bipolar." "Yeah I dumped her because she was way bipolar." Do you even know what the fuck bipolar disorder is? Or do you just THINK you know what it is because you listen to petty chatter and stupid media? "Guess that means they shouldn't be parents lol" I know a woman who lost triplets at five months. How about asking her if she thought it was a special little sign or if it was funny. "He must be some retard. He acts like someone with Autism hahaha." Do you know the first thi

Before I get into the crew update. I'll just be letting you all know about my new thank you system for favourites. Since it's gotten to the point where I can't keep up with thanking everyone. I've decided instead to just feature random people who favourite my work in my journal. I'll just pick a handful each time and let loose ^^. I think it'll be better and more useful than a thank you note. Hope it works out ^^

• EBF4 will be up on Armor Games the Monday after that.
• EBF4 will be up on Steam a long time from now, probably. I'll worry about that later.
I'm currently reading piles of comments and watching Let's Plays, while still doing a bit of balancing and debugging...
The Kongregate launch went pretty well. I failed to fix a few bugs that came up during beta testing, but they seem to be very rare now.
The premium pack is selling well, and the game has the highest score on Kongregate for now.
The guy that makes the elephant games gave me some cool code for transferring saved games between websites really easily.
He works for Kongregate now, apparently, so I'm really only allowed to transfer saved games to Kongregate, and not from. Oh well.
Cool stuff, but I can't relax yet. ):

I'm not terribly up to date all the time so you're better off using different platforms to find news... but I'll do my best!Miraculous Ladybug updates2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Miraculous Ladybug is a joint production between Zagtoon (France), Toei (Japan) and Method Animation (Korea). It follows the adventures of magical hero Marinette Cheng and her alter ego Ladybug. Set in Paris, Marinette acquires earrings and a Kwami (magical companion) named Tikki that allows her to be a superhero. Along for the ride is Chat Noir, another magical hero - and Marinette has no idea he's actually her school crush, Adrien. Likewise, he doesn't know that the spotty superheroine he hangs out with at night is actually the ordinary girl from his class... They fight against Hawk Moth and his minions the Akuma, who turn regular people into supervillains.

Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that makes engaging friends and artists in conversation more dynamic than ever before.
