-Cosplay Bullying PSA-As of recent I have noticed a continuing trend of cosplayers who deem themselves "professionals" bullying other cosplayers. They throw out demeaning insults like, "your cosplays suck", "your not a real cosplayer because you bought your costume items and didnt make them", "your too fat for that", "your not the right race/color for that", "your not good at making props, you should give up", "your not allowed to create your own versions of characters", "your not on my level" & "I'm so much better than you"....-Cosplay Bullying PSA-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All I can say is that this has to stop. This is wrong. Since when did having fun, letting go and enjoying "make believe costume time" become such a horrendous, hateful, drama-filled competition? What gives people the right to bash other people, or to tell them they are "doing make believe wrong"? When did the egos become so unbelievably huge??
Cosplaying is supposed to be about having fun, about being someone else, about creating something awesome and showcasing what you Made. W
Top 10 Best Adventure Time EpisodesYou know how every time there's a new episode of Adventure Time with Flame Princess I review it just so I can call the writers out on how terribly executed the character is? Well, I was going to do that again with "Ignition Point" until I realized I had nothing new to say. Same old critiques. Then I realized that even though I call Adventure Time one of my favorite shows on television, I only talk about it when it gives me something to complain about. That's just stupid. So today, I am here to tell you why Adventure Time is so great.Top 10 Best Adventure Time Episodes2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Adventure Time thrives on its harmony between two opposite tones: silly and serious. The show is as colorful as a child's artwork, and the concept of the show itself sounds quite upbeat: a boy and his dog go on wacky adventures to vanquish evil. However, the show gives itself the task of explaining the source of its "silly" adventures and what each event means to the characters involved. An episode about a jiggly baby doubles as an exploration of the impac
R.I.P Kiki HavivyKiki Havivy - Two Years of Never Backing DownR.I.P Kiki Havivy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As many of you may be aware, Kiki Havivy, an incredibly brave little girl that has been in the lives of pony fans throughout the fandom for almost two years now, passed away yesterday after a long struggle with cancer. Tara Strong broke the heartbreaking news yesterday and the community has responded strongly with condolences and other wonderful gestures. The family has responded, thanking the community.
I personally didn't know about this until this morning. News of a death is never easy to take, and its devastating when it's about someone so young and loved by many.
Riposa in pace Kiki, you were strong, and an inspiration to tons of people out there. Thank you.

I haven't been this upset in a long time.I apologize in advance. This journal is not going to be like my others, I am not a happy camper to say the least. I fear I will end up ranting a bit overboard, but I need to post about this before it happens again.I haven't been this upset in a long time.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am in a state of shock.
I am fucking upset. Beyond upset. I am extremely disappointed. I feel violated. I feel disgusted. HORRIBLE. Terrified and mentally dismembered. Distraught. I'm shaking from the extreme amount of upsetting feelings bubbling overboard in me.
My friends & I have dealt with things like this before, but it has NEVER been this bad. We have never gone this long without knowing something was going on behind our backs. & this is probably why Hannah & I are in such shock right now. I am usually told about these things & the situation is settled through Hannah for the most part, because I am not a dramatic person. I cannot handle drama, it really affects me physically. So, for a long time, I've been not bothering with handling people who impers

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

► Can I purchase your work to turn it into a mold for resin, clay, etc?
--- NO! D: Giant, giant, huge flashing no here. I will never allow my works to be duplicated in such a way. If you've seen molds out there of my work please alert me so I can handle it. I like to keep creative control over all my sculpts, so as of now there is no instance I would allow a mold to be made from one of my creations. Sorry about that.
► What kind of clay do you use?
--- I use polymer clay, it's an oven baked clay that hardens at 275°F (130°C), so you do

Supernatural is going to be on at 9PM EST on WEDNESDAY instead of Friday! This means that it's moved from the slot where TV shows go to die to the slot that is known as the 'Superhero' slot
There are going to be fewer breaks during Season 8, however the season is starting later than usual.
The premiere for Season 8 is Wednesday, October 10th
Our beloved Jensen will be directing the first episode of the season!
There will be 23 episodes in Season 8.
That's all for Season 8 updates so far. I'll add more as I get them.

How to install mods in SFxT, SSFIVAE and USF4All right guys,here is the tip to install the mod in SF X TEKKEN, SSFIVAE & USF4without messing with the origninal files (discovered by Robhal)How to install mods in SFxT, SSFIVAE and USF42 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. First create folder "chara" inside this folder "\Program Files\CAPCOM\Street Fighter X Tekken\patch\CMN\battle\".
2. Then create folder for respective character, eg: ASK, KEN, LIL, RYU, etc.
3. And finally just extract or copy the mod into above folder.
4. Run the game to see the result.
NOTE1: I have tested this way with mods from moedjoer (usually only 8 files), khaled, monkeygigabuster, and other. All work.
NOTE2: Because the original files are untouched, there is no need to backup them.
1. First create folder "battle\chara" inside this folder "\Program Files\CAPCOM\Super Street Fighter IV\patch\" or "Steam\SteamApps\common\Super Street Fighter IV - Arcade Edition\patch"(depend on version you use).
2. Then create folder for respective character, eg: CDY, KEN, MKT, RYU, etc (even GKX, RYX, YAN and YUN can be placed here too).

i felt the need to brag!
i have finally completed last issue of wildfire, just yesterday, which is my first ever full art project that ever got published!!
so hopefully the updates here will be a little more frequent (that is until my next project XD)
and with more experience i will be able to manage my time a bit better, (and become faster and better at drawing.)
Currently whenever i finish a project i don't even take a break, i immediately switch to doing bloodstain, because i don't know how much time i will have until the next project (it could be 2 weeks or 2 days from one comic to the other)
so yeah XD no break for me XD

Gah, yes I'm doing this again because the last one became outdated so fast! I altered a few things, most of which is just clarifications of the commission terms (just so that we're all on the same page. I keep hopin' I really keep hoping) as well as the sketch commission upgrade to a definite greyscale CG instead.
I might open pencil sketches again someday...probably on the day I get a cheap, fast scanner to sit next to my computer to churn out all the stuff with, but until then those will be MIA.

Horror Isn't Responsible For Your Shitty ParentingI wasn't gonna make a rant about this, but seeing as I'm an artist who has a burning passion for all things dark and horrific--and that occasionally involves me drawing Creepypasta and/or Slenderman-related art when I get the urge--I don't want anyone to think that horror artists are something terrible and evil just because two girls went nuts and stabbed some girl for the sake of being Slenderman's proxies.Horror Isn't Responsible For Your Shitty Parenting8 months ago in Personal More Like This
We all know how it was with rock and roll music, rap music, violent video games, the works: THEY ALL POISON CHILDREN'S MINDS.
Yes, of course they do. I've been playing Mortal Kombat--a video game known for its gore, violence, and sexual themes--for a long time, and I've never wanted to perform a fatality on anyone. Heh.

Rant: Social Justice WarriorsYou guys know the drill. The opinions in this rant are my own and you don't have to agree. If you don't, that's fine. If you do, thanks!Rant: Social Justice Warriors4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ah, Social Justice Warriors. SJWs, hypocritical assholes, the cancer of the internet. Whatever you choose to refer to them as, we all know they're the ones who claim to be all for a certain thing, or are trying waaaay too hard to stand up for what they believe in when all they're really doing is being cruel to others and probably don't have a clue about the cause they're 'fighting' for nor care about it when the shit hits the fan.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with social justice. Not at all. We need someone to keep the peace, but then again, we're always going to have idiots and less-than-civil people who are going to cause trouble. To be honest, I didn't know what a SJW was until now. I saw how much people hated them and figured it may be a decent topic to rant about, so I looked it up. It's pretty much what I suspected but never cared ab
Rant: Equality, Not SuperiorityYou know what I find hilarious? The fact that some women out there whine about equal rights, yet they still want to be treated like a princess when it comes down to it. It's also funny when men want to be treated equally yet they don't want to be called out on their sexist bullshit.Rant: Equality, Not Superiority7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let me break it down...
Women are just as smart, capable, able, strong, and talented as men and should be treated with respect. We should be taken seriously when we need to be, and we should be seen with as much potential as anyone else. But when you claim to be all for equality, stop fighting for superiority. You're just making yourself look sexist. I thought that's what you were trying to rid from the world?
Men, you're just as worthy as women. You're also just as smart, capable, and strong. Just as you are apt to be hurt, abused, taken advantage of, and treated like shit as females--sometimes by females. But when you start acting like all women

Advice on Disagreements (and apologies!) Hello everyone~ I've noticed a lot of people on dA don't really know how to handle a situation where two or more people are disagreeing. Whether it's over a petty problem, stolen art, potentially ripped-off designs, or whatever else you can think of that would cause tension between two or more people.Advice on Disagreements (and apologies!)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I thought I'd give you some advice on how to handle these things. You may not always come out as the "winner," but you'll come out looking sane/smart/less-of-a-bitch if you follow these rules. So here we go.
1. Do not call the other person names or use any demeaning adjectives towards them. This includes (but is not limited to) calling them a bitch, and asshole, stupid, an idiot, a dumbass, a douchebag, ect, ect, ect.
2. Do not bring past issues into the argument. You need to discuss what is going on right at that moment, not what's happened before.
