New Premium Membership Feature: 10% off!You may have already heard, but we just launched a new feature as part of the Premium Membership package... Premium Members now receive an ongoing 10% discount on Prints and deviantWEAR purchases! That means they'll be saving 10% on all Photo Prints, Fine Art Prints, Wrapped Canvases, Art Gifts, T-shirts, Backpacks, Hoodies, and the rest of our devious gear. If that wasn't a sweet-enough deal, we've made it so that this discount stacks with most other sales that happen in our shop. For example, if we're running a 15% discount on Fine Art Prints, Premium Members will get a total of 25% off because of their additional 10% discount.New Premium Membership Feature: 10% off!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why are we doing this?
Why not?! We wanted to add this discount as a small token of our appreciation for all the support Premium Members provide us. While we have many more upgrades in the works for the Premium Membership package, I'm excited that we were able to get this to you all in time for the holiday season.
How's it work?

Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.As an artist, you probably will be approached by various people over time. Some may be looking for commissions, others will most likely be looking for free art.Fuck you. Pay me. -- A masterpost for artists.2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here are some handy resources concerning the "free art"-people. First of all, there's this handy flowchart called "Should I Work For Free?.
If they say they'll pay you with:
-Eventual cut of the profit when profits are made
-No pay, since artists "shouldn't be sell-outs, but draw for fun"
Then run for the hills and get away as fast as you can.
Because if it's for a game, a comic or another for-profit project, the most normal response should be "Fuck you. Pay me." (worded politer, though that goes without saying).
Spec-work? -- Fuck you. Pay me.
"We don't have the budget for 20 sprite-sheets, but we'll sell this game and your name will be in the credits!" -- Fuck you. Pay me.

Important! New bill might be WORSE than SOPA/PIPAThis is not about ACTA, it is about a new bill to back up SOPA and PIPA which is worse than those two and them combined.Important! New bill might be WORSE than SOPA/PIPA3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
IF you guys are tired with all the story of SOPA and PIPA, Lamar Smith, creator of thise bills is at it AGAIN.
Now he has created the bill H.R. 1981 which has more potential to invave our pricacy and control the internet users than SOPA ever had!
His bill uses Child Pornography as a screen to monitor your credit card and bank activity on the internet. It requires that Internet Providers hold on to information about your browsing history for up to 18 months.
Altough he says our personal infortmation will be kept in a ''safe'' place, anyone knows this is the perfect excuse for hackers to steal our personal information. it is MCUH MORE dangerous than SOPA and PIPA.
Haly-K and me made a petition here:

Sooo much for being lazy. Got this journal done a lot soon than expected.

This is my current project: Lunar Days Sim Date. Here, I already made a FAQ so don't ask unnecessary questions:
Q: Release date?
idk. tba. Maybe around 2012 like how it says on the poster above?Around January 2012...
Q: How many characters are datable?
A: Eight. Four are unlockable though.
Q: What about Xolga and Mr. Toko? ;A;
A: Like Chrono Days, they will be running shops in this game. Mr. Toko will not be Veon's partner in crime as shown in Emerald Moon.
Q: Is there anything different about this sim date compared to the others?
A: The story and cut scenes will run kind of like Xolga and Mr. Toko (visual-novely). This mean more drawing for me, but I think the extra work will be well worth
Pacdabutt's FAQ Last updated: 11/4/12Pacdabutt's FAQ7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dating sims/Flash Questions
What do you use to make your games and dating sims?
Macromedia Flash 8. (I'm using a pretty "outdated" version FYI...)
Is Flash free? Does it come with most computers like MS Paint?
It does not.
Where/how can I get Flash?
It can be purchased from the official Adobe website here. Like Photoshop, it's expensive. More retailers can be found with Google.
Will you make another sim date soon?
I might (if I'm not making one right now). But from 2009-2012, I've managed to release 2-3 games per year. I work on sim dates when I please.
Why don't you make dating sims for guys?
My current audience is made up of mostly young females. I'd like to target towards them. There are many visual novels/dating simulations for males out there though. Most are in Japanese, but there are quite a few in English too. Note that many if not most of them fe

As I said, and to avoid copyright issues, we must skip all Bioware copyrighted material. That means the characters will keep their names, but I'm not going to use their surnames. While the human ones (Cousland, Amell and Hawke) are actual surnames in real life and thus, Bioware can't have rights on them, I'm not sure about the non-human ones (Tabris, Mahariel, Surana, Brosca or Aeducan), so we will stick to the names and the drawing of the characters, all of whom you know well .
Also, any other Dragon Age videogame related things like armors, crests, symbos, places
Still AliveOk you can all stop worrying about me now, because I am indeed still alive.Still Alive9 months ago in Personal More Like This
My past months absence has been due to the release of Destiny (ok so it isn't a good reason) and job hunting.
Also, I have begun refurbishing my room, which includes throwing out a load of furniture and getting a few floor and everything. What this means is my attendance here will not improve for another week or two, and there may be a few days where I am unable to access my computer all together.
For those I have offered commissions to, I ask you to keep being patient, and know that I have been testing and planning concept art for said commissions all this past month.
Soon I shall return.
Ok turns out the period I go without my computer starts now. I'll try be on as often as I can using other comptuers, but we'll see.

An AMAZING public service ad that aired in India. I believe that everyone needs to see this. It sheds light on that oppessive, ever-pervasive male gaze that women can never escape. If only the creepy gawkers knew how it feels...
I think that both of these ads should be aired in more places than just the Philippines and India respectively. These are problems faced by women all over the world.

Snowball fights, snow angels, building snowmen and skating (with or without actual skates) on naturally frozen ponds and lakes. These are the universally enjoyed activities of wintertime. They are the joys that off–set the woes of the hazardous driving, the colds and flu, and the heating bills. Encourage your children to pursue their winter fun activities just as tenaciously as they do their school studies. The greater the multitude of happy winter memories banked in youth, the easier it is when the arthritis arrives, shutting us indoors, with only our colds and flu and heating bills.

I do not consider myself an excellent artist like those guy who charge 50 US$ per drawings. But I do work in details longer and take more time overall drawing and coloring my stuff nowadays. So my prices are a bit more than what I used to propose before.
Don't worry, we can always discuss formalities, details and price, even more if you plan on asking me multiple drawings.
I do commissions! From simple sketches, and colored pics, to comics too!
