Ten things to do on your DeviantART visitWhether you have limited time or need a checklist of some sort, heres ten small tasks I do daily to build rapport, connect with other deviants, and promote my art within the DA community. They are not meant to be repetitive or overwhelming, but will touch upon many features of DeviantART. Though Im sure many of you may already do some (or all!) of these (:Ten things to do on your DeviantART visit3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
10. Give someone a llama badge
One of the newer and more intriguing features of DeviantART is its badge system, which allows users to give one another all types of badges, some free and some costing real money. The most popular badge is the Llama badge, which costs nothing and has different levels where if you get a certain amount of llamas, your badge changes. Giving a llama badge is great for many reasons. For one, users tend to get llamas back in return, so if you are looking to get more llamas yourself, one of the easiest ways is to give out a lot of them. Another reason is obvious: you are sharing the lla

[BIG UPDATE]: I've updated the title and added the sign "closed" so you know the giveaway is C-L-O-S-E-D! I thought it was enough saying there was already a winner, showing you the screenshot of the random number generator... but not. You're driving me nuts. This journal entry keeps being faved and there's people noting me to know when the giveaway will be closed so I can say who the winner is. If you can't read even a single title, don't expect me to reply to those notes telling you what's already been here for almost a month.
Sorry if you think I'm being rude, but everything's got a limit.
[UPDATE]: Good morning everyone, it's 7:11 on the morning here on Spain and already Monday in half of the world. As I said, I'll be using random.org to pick a winner. Please, don't post a comment or send me a note telling me you're not in

IMPROMPTU CONTEST TIME YAY
I decided I need a nice and big official "banner" type thing for the group’s front page, to go where the gorgeous pixel done by pandalecko currently resides.
- The image has to feature Mari (and Mari alone), the group’s official mascot. His ref:
- The image should also preferably feature the text „Club MTT“ on it. Variations like "Welcome to Club MTT" and such are welcome.
- The image should be about 800 px wide, or easily resizeable to that size. The image should be wider than it is tall, or of equal width and height at most.

All Signs Point to Robitz
Everywhere you go, every day of your life, there are signs all around you. Yes that's right: regular old signs. Stop signs, exit signs, business signs, street signs, you name it; they're everywhere. In fact, unless you're standing in the middle of a remote cow field somewhere, chances are that you can't even escape being surrounded by signs, and let's face it, even out in the middle of nowhere, there's probably a

MTT species infoIMPORTANT UPDATE.MTT species info3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow. This got out of hand really fast. All of a sudden I have a ton of people making a ton of MTT characters all at once, popping out one right after the other. I really did not want it to turn out this way, these rules were meant to try and cut down on the amount of new MTTs being made, but that didn't work out like I wanted it to at all. Worked quite the opposite. So I'm sorry to say this, but the MTTs are now a closed species until further notice. Only way to get one from now on are adoption contests, which I will be hosting more often. Everyone who has already gotten permission for however many MTTs they asked of me, can still make theirs. Going back on my word like that would be lame. Again, I'm sorry, but I don't want to just wait until the fad blows over. The MTT species will stay closed for a while, but I am not sure how long exactly. Maybe a few months, maybe forever.
And I want to stress this is not because of any one certain person, so anyone
Rule 34My latest little pony-themed comics have brought up some more questions about whether I'll ever do Rule 34s on these things. Well, no. I haven't fully analyzed the reason why I have an aversion to Rule 34 things in general. The more I know about a particular cartoon, either from the past or from a present following, the more of an "eh" reaction I have to fan-made adult images I run across. What I feel when I see it isn't dissimilar to seeing a celebrity's face photoshopped onto a nude body. No matter how well done it may be, there's a level of "I just know too well how fake this is" involved. This may seem surprising, since the jests that I draw are sometimes of an "after 9pm" subject. But these are just purely playing on embellishments of character, rather than a desire to elaborate on a cartoon character's personal sexual motions (or their genitals). I suppose as close as I've come was the human version of Zecora, which, while a nude, wasn't very explicit or sexual. It didn't show muRule 343 years ago in Personal More Like This

How to : Find Art ThievesPlease this journal, so that a lot of people can read it.How to : Find Art Thieves2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I noticed that a lot of people don't know how to search for their photos on the internet, so here is a short tutorial. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about art thieves, but i still think it is important to look out for them.
1. visit Google.com
2. Go to the page of the photo you want to search and click "show image"
3. Copy the Link and paste it into google.
4. This page should open, click "search by image".
5. Now you can browse trough the results.
6. The less results the happier you should be.
EDIT : You can also use websites like : tineye.com and iqdb.com
This was pointed out to me by some people, personally i have no experience with them, but i am sure that they work too.

Simple Design Contest- Judging!Right so I was pretty inspired by silly-boat's contest in how they used minimalistic colourations (black and white) as the subject. I tend to have some pretty somewhat complicated/complex designs so hey maybe it'll be pretty cool to have a simple design contest.Simple Design Contest- Judging!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Rules are very simple: The character/creature must be completely monotone (gradients accepted) save for a single off colour (preferably a neon one or something that stands out) that can be used in only ONE area. (except for eyes)
For example say I have a wolf. That wolf is black with white socks and a stomach and has red eyes however the off colour could be two simple dashes below its eye but that colour can't be used anywhere else on the creature. Pretty simple huh?
-Only monotone colours can be used, save for that single off colour [Monotone pertaining to black, white, grey gradients]
-You can use bases but it's discouraged, I want

If you want power, you need to turn the outlets on, and to do that you gotta push a switch down.
TV has far fewer commercial breaks.
English police are super nice (watched the British version of "COPS" and was amazed at how polite everyone was, even the criminals).
The second floor is called the first.
French Fries are called Chips.
Chips are called Crisps.
American-centric music doesn't stay here (Heard "Sweet Home Alabama" quite a number of times over there).
You are not expected to tip people (this was very hard for me to accept and I always felt guilty not tipping our waiters).
You are not expected to clean up your messes in food courts or.. anywhere actually (Janitors come by and clean up for you. Has something to do with security and getting rid of bomb threats).
Elevators are called Lifts.
Air conditioning seems scarce.

Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.Hi everyone! It's been awhile. This post is a little important so I have a feeling im going to be making it a little long... Also, I'm doing it from my phone. So, there may be weird typos.Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't wanna read the whole thing here's a basic summary:
I left DA because of Internet hate which brought down my confidence; I got a lot of hate the same day I found out my grandfather died which really made it worse, I planned on coming back the beginning of January but I was hospitalized because of a bowel obstruction and I am still currently in the hospital and plan to come back mid February. Also I feel like shit.
Long version: I guess I'll start... With why I left. It's a really complex reason and I really hope everyone will understand, but I think there might be some people who just won't. And by that I mean, I am aware I have a handfull of followers who might feel neutral about my art rather than full out liking it. Or maybe I'm just talking about the people who don't really like my ar

THAT'S RIGHT YOU ARE A SHOE.
THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT NOT BEING A SHOE BECAUSE IN MY MIND YOU ARE ONE AND THAT IS MOST UNFORTUNATE.
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU CONCEPTUALIZED AS A SHOE IN MY IMAGINATION YOU SHALL REMAIN AS SUCH.
THIS MAKES ME WONDER WHETHER ALL PEOPLES AND OBJECTS CAN BE CONCEPTUALIZED AS SHOES AND THUS BECOME SUCH, GRANTING ME ABSOLUTE POWER OVER THEM. DOES SNIPPY HAVE A CLEVER ARGUMENT? NO HE DOESN'T, HE'S A SHOE. SHOES CAN'T HAVE CLEVER ARGUMENTS.
I FEEL LIKE THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD HAS BEEN LIFTED OFF MY SHOULDERS NOW THAT EVERYTHING IS UNDER MY CONTROL, NOW THAT YOU ARE ALL SHOES. I NO LONGER HAVE TO ANSWER TO MY REGRETS AND PAST MISTAKES BECAUSE THEY ARE SIMPLY SHOES.
I WAS EVEN ABLE TO PAINT PHOTOSHOP IN PURPLE COLOR (TO PLEASE CAPTAIN) AND SHE DIDN'T EVEN PUT UP A PROPER FIGHT BECAUSE I IMAGINED HER AS A SHOE.
