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!3 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.

Sooo much for being lazy. Got this journal done a lot soon than expected.
Da dun dun dun daaaaaa~ ♫
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
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.
"We need 10 sprites / full paintings by tomorrow,

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

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:

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 .

Pay the PayPal FeesHave you seen someone take commissions with the following in their terms: you must pay the PayPal fee (calculate it at a site like http://www.ppcalc.com)?Pay the PayPal Fees3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Every time I run across someone with those terms, I tell them this is against PayPal's terms of service. Some respond 'oh, okay' and remove it, others argue with me and say it's not against their terms. One person has said they will refuse to work on the commission unless I do pay the fees.
I contacted PayPal directly regarding this to get final word on whether this is a violation or not.
Here is my question:
When I am shopping online, I often see people have a rule that if you pay with PayPal, you have to calculate the "paypal fee" and add that on top of the price of the product or service. Some people will refuse to ship or work if they do not receive the "full amount" (without the paypal fee added in).
Is it against the paypal terms of service for these people to do this? What should I tell them

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!

Canvas sizes - inches and dpi and pixelsThis is a sort of guide on canvas sizes, inches, dpi and pixel x pixels.Canvas sizes - inches and dpi and pixels2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
when it came to canvas sizes, I always kind of assumed that inches belonged with dpi and pixels were just pixels and that everyone knew that; but i read a whole bunch of comments on a tumblr blog where someone asked about canvas sizes, and SO MANY people were replying with things such as, "4000x4000 px at 300 dpi" or "2000x2000 px at 200dpi".
and I guess not everyone quite understands what dpi's really used for xD.
DPI = Dots per Inch. It means how many dots will be printed per inch.
DPI is actually used for printing purposes. It shows the printer how much pixels to print per inch, literally. A common printer (at home or even at a lot of printing stores) at best prints at 150dpi most of the time actually; there are some super duper great printers that can print REALLY fine that can go up to ...apparently a lot more xD; #dpi, so that's why everyone usually suggests saving your project at 300dpi; most printers are f

How to win at deviantART: ExposeddeviantART is a categories game.How to win at deviantART: Exposed3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
According to deviantART's hq, "deviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results (ie. front page) is known as Fair Exposure. The goal is to maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. "
What this boils down to is that certain art categories have inherent ranking advantages and others inherent ranking disadvantages on front page as a means of ensuring that a variety of works from across deviantART are visible on front page and not just that of one category. Sounds pretty good right?
Well let me say before I continue that I do not know deviantART's actual mathematical algorithm for front page ranking. However, I think that anyone who notices the composition of front pages (whether 8 hour or 24, main or by category) and the statistics of the pieces that populate those fronts pages can give you a pretty good guess.
