What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)Okay, due to some flaming I've received because I brought art plagiarism to the attention of an art plagiarist... I've realized that there is more than a good number of people who don't know what art plagiarism really is--so, I've written an informative journal for you all. It's broken down into several easy to understand sections.What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)6 years ago in Personal More Like This
http://snapesgirl34.deviantart.com/art/The-Ultimate-Tutorial-2-0-46849943 You might also get a good tl;dr out of reading this amazing tutorial. Hopefully, if my journal's not enough to understand the meaning of art plagiarism, then the tutorial will be (or vice versa, maybe my journal will help you understand the tutorial more).
What Is Art Theft?
What Is Tracing?
What Is Art Paraphrasing?
Why Can't I Use Other People's Art as "Reference" to Make My Own Art?
How Can I Avoid Being Called on Art Plagiarism?
If you have any questions after reading this journal, or would like to debate with me,
Cosplay Design Contest! [CLOSED]Hello, everyone! >w< I have another contest for you! ^o^/Cosplay Design Contest! [CLOSED]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The contest is design-based, and the theme is 'My OCs cosplay with a twist!'
What do you mean by that?
Basically, I want to see my OCs either cosplaying one another or cosplaying a character from another anime/manga/fandom! ^^
Please also note that if they are to be cosplaying another character that is not one of my OCs, it MUST be from an official manga/anime/fandom! Otherwise I will not be able to accept it as an official entry. I apologize for not emphasizing enough ;A;
You can choose from any of the characters in these folders:
Take note that the OCs that are cosplaying must be from the folders above-- they can be cosplaying whomever but the cosplayer must be one of my OCs.

I feel like it's a good day for complaining.
So, complain about anything you don't like.
It can be life problems, general state of mind, a person, something deviantART related... anything you want.
Just let it all out.
I might try to help with an advice.
Plus, you can win 200 points.
In order to participate you only have to:
a) this journal
b) and complain about something that gets on your nerves.
I will use random.org to pick one lucky/grumpy winner
I hope you like this idea, and have fun complaining
My complaint (dA related):
I hate it when people keep posting body pics to get attention from perverts/stalkers.
Especially, if they repost 42354235 times to get more favorites on certain photos. Gets on my nerves.

10 ways to get motivatedDear, deviantart fellow artists10 ways to get motivated1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Motivation is such an important part of our lifes. Without it, we wouldn't get anything done. It's the reason why we do the things we do. And when we have the lack of it, then It can get quite depressing and give us an anxiety that keeps us away from making artworks. And it sucks. So here are my 10 tips that have helped me over the time and I hope that It'll be helpful for you too.
Have some inspirational quotes all around your workplace. Put the artworks you adore as your desktop picture. See them as motivation, something to strive for, to remind yourself what matters to you and trigger positive thoughts. Try to write an inspiring letter to your future-self - about what and why you want to achieve and whenever you'll feel down, read it and you'll be inspired to move on.
Discovering new songs or playing the old ones - that

Update, 26 Aug 13: I got a really good reference for Bowen, now; if you were wanting to draw Elaine with him in his "human" form, this is perfect: http://madhatterkyoko.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=183897859
He changes outfits, but he usually wears cool clothes like those. And he does change his hair style. He can have it in spikes or slicked back or like in that reference image. He's not the type to stick to any one thing for long (except for Elaine). ;o

Hetalia Shower Lemon Contest [CLOSED]Okay I just got enough points to have a 3 month premium membership! So, I'm starting a contest! Yes, that's right, a contest. I haven't seen that much reader inserts about Shower sex, so why not have a contest? ...I have a shower lemon fetish... I'm still working on those requests!Hetalia Shower Lemon Contest [CLOSED]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Though, I will remove this contest if it doesn't work out. C:
1.) Must be a Reader Insert oneshot or Country x OC
2.) Has to do with any place that involves water (ex: Sex in a shower, pool, beach, lake, puddle (lol), etc.)
3.) No Nyo!talia or 2P! form.
4.) It can be a theme (ex: Dark!, Angel!, Demon!, Vampire! Teacher!, Gauken!, etc.)
5.) Decent length. It can be short, but it can't be a short drabble. It can be a long one-shot.
6.) Reader and Country cannot be minors.
7.) You may enter as many times as you want! It will help you try to get to first place! The more, the better!

Thank You!Thank you guys so much for the deviousness award! But it's really not just this award, thank you all for the support through out the years.Thank You!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!

Usually works digitally or with watercolors
Specializes in figures but has started working on backgrounds
