FAQHi there !FAQ1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes I answered to people sometimes not... I simply forget to answer, or don't have time, or the question has been asked billion times, or it's too complicated to write it in english.
so here some answers: (sorry if there are english's mistakes, I'm french ^^.)
Do you take commissions ?
Nope, I really don't have time ! Sorry guys. I won't answer to note/PM about that.
Do you do prints of your illustrations ?
Not for the moment... It's very personal I'm not sure I'm ready to make money from it.
Can I use your art ?
It depends for what, If I don't answer then it means "no". Don't take it badly... It just takes too much times to make proper sentences to say no and I don't have time to deal with it... sorry.
And please don't use it for 9gag or something else like that.
Artists are fighting for there rights and they use screenshots and gif to make jokes...
I might be hard and harsh about it and I'm sorry but it's insulting and paradoxale.

TKC-Point systemWhat is the Point System?TKC-Point system3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The point system was created to give something back for those drawings you make and the titles you earn. You dont have to do this, it's only for fun. Point systems are made to encourage people to draw their dogs, and also to have a goal to reach for. The points are not the dA currency points, it's just a made up system, think of it as experience points just like a game.
SIMPLE GUIDEFor example, if you created a new dog without any parents, the dog starts with 0xp, every single thing the dog earns and every drawing you make of the dog gives the dog xp, eventually when the dog has gathered enough xp the dog may be awarded one of our 5 ranks. XP may also be passed on to offspring.
You can not earn a title from TKC if the drawing was made for a different group or contest not hosted by TKC.
You can not count 1 image twice, that would be considered cheating,
On TES elvesAlright can I just say how much I love the elves in the Elder ScrollsOn TES elves2 years ago in Personal More Like This
J.R.R. Tolkien popularized elves as these otherworldly, divinely beautiful creatures which sorta established the standard for the race in all modern fantasy that came after. They're nearly immortal, distant, and to me, plain boring. Then around comes Morrowind, the game that really made me fall in love with TES, its world and its lore!! The elves of TES have a long history, and each subrace has their own cultural identity. The elves no longer just sit in their Crystal ivory towers (well I guess some of them do) and sing to their trees or whatever - they're flawed, complicated PEOPLE, and extremely proud of who they are. The haughty Altmer, the hostile Dunmer from the Ashlands, the cannibalistic Bosmer, the late Dwemer and their scientific achievements…. when was the last time any elves modeled after Tolkien's work had this much cultural diversity??
I love the fact that Bethesda actually created some of the most inter

Betta Fish Colors First, heres a rundown on the biology behind colors. This will help those who have plans to breed bettas and it also helps explain how colors come about. Like humans, fish color depends on the density of pigment in the skin. People with light skin have less pigment and people with dark skin have more. What makes bettas, and other fish, slightly different is that they have 4 different layers that control different colors. They have to have this because fish have so many different colors (humans are just a varying amount of the same color). The most important aspect in fish is that the top layers are dominant to the bottom layers; if the top most layer is a solid color then you wont see the layers underneath but those layers might still be carrying color.Betta Fish Colors4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. Iridescent layer (top layer): This layer is known as the blue layer and controls the amount of blue pigment. If there is pigment in this layer then you can have green, blue and opaque white

Bullshit myths about feminism.I know, I know. Going all ideological on you guys is a little a-typical for me, and perhaps (I hope) I'm preaching to the choir. But I've been noticing a lot of negativeness around the word and (more importantly) the ideology of feminism, and a lot of that seems to be based on misinformation or misunderstanding. This might not be the best place to fix any of that, but I felt like chipping in anyway. It beats doing nothing, right?Bullshit myths about feminism.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, here's some of my "favorite" bullshit myths:
Bullshit Myth: Feminists think girls are better than guys.
Feminism isn't Misandry! Feminists don't hate guys, or think women are better than guys. In fact, that idea is the other opposite of what it's really about : equality.
When extreme feminism turns into Misandry it stops being feminism, as they are fighting against the very thing feminism hopes to accomplish. (I believe these people a tiny minority but I won't deny it exists; there's nutcases on every team after all).

As if losing someone isn't one of the most unfair feelings in the world so is the technical stuff that comes with it.

New DA commission Widget...► The New DA commission Widget... and things you should know about it.New DA commission Widget...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As word of the new commission Widget spreads, so dose the thousands of questions that follow. As with the very popular DA point system I seem to get asked daily because of the point calculator app I created, questions like "Can I transfer points into cash?", "Can I write a mail order to DA to get points?" I can see this becoming another one of those things I should be in the know about. So here is what I've deduced after doing a bit of research on the new widget. Keep in mind I'm using usd based pricing in this journal.

Its been around for about a month now, available to premium and beta tester users. DA just announced the feature today however here: http://fav.me/d5r2b2q It can be found in the misc. folder in your edit page widgets interface.

Funny enough, being artists also means you're probably a more sensitive person than most.
This following stage story is based on my own experience. Yours might be completely the same or perhaps you encounter different emotions thought he development stages. They are sort of placed in order, but you usually don't experience all of them in one artwork. (or do you?)
