New Deviation Page Testing
Deviation pages are one of the most visited areas of deviantART. With hundreds of millions of deviations to view, and 65 million people browsing the site each month, we want to ensure that navigating deviation pages is as seamless as possible, allowing visitors to get the most of their viewing experience.
Powered by data and feedback from our logged-out tests, we're now ready to test new vs. old deviation pages to deviantART's logged-in audience. Testing two similar, yet different, versions of our deviation page will allow us to

Exposure, Getting Better, & Having the ChopsEXPOSURE & GETTING BETTER AT WHAT YOU DOExposure, Getting Better, & Having the Chops3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm only going off of my own personal experiences talking about these few things. (And I'm not specifically talking about ONLY dA here.) So take it with as many grains of salt as you can.
I've recently been asked questions like "How do I get people to see my work?", "Why am I not receiving commission inquiries?", "Why isn't anyone following my work?", "What can I do to get better?". Often, and I answered it before, the answer is as simple as this:
Create, as in, DRAW. PAINT. RENDER. SCULPT. You have to do develop a tolerance (or the obvious definition: LOVE) for creating if you want exposure and to get better. You have to LOVE the drawing or illustration that you HATE how it came out in the end. You have to ask yourself after every piece, what could I have done to do that differently. And you have to do this frequently.
Some folks come on the scene, post once or twice a week, and expect an audience to flock yo

Harley Quinn Part 2There's been a LOT of talk about this contest. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 Most of it negative, some of it positive, and some of it trying VERY hard to justify it. I've already said my peace about it in 3 consecutive comics which you can read here:Harley Quinn Part 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
But outside that there's still a lot of debate going on and I wanted to touch upon it. First up, there were a lot of people trying to justify "why" she was committing suicide. A lot of these people suggested things like "she's a crazy character and she's unstable so of course she would do something like this" or "she'd probably do this if the joker left her." And while those people DO have a point... all of it is rendered null and void when the creators of the contest come right out and say that the point of these attempted suicides was a tongue-in-cheek gag at the awful shit they were gonna put Harley through. As in, she sees what they're gonna write a
Watchers Art Feature + 500 Points GiveawayHi everyone! I really want to THANK YOU FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES! <333 IT MADE ME SO HAPPY!!Watchers Art Feature + 500 Points Giveaway1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Actually, I'm sick on my birthday, so I just stayed at home. But I celebrated with my family, and had a lot of fun! I feel so blessed!
And because it's my birthday today, I decided to give back to my watchers by having a special art feature of their works (I did it randomly). I'm sorry I couldn't feature all because there's just too many, but hopefully I could in the future! I also hold 500 giveaway, which is open to all.
Thank you so much for all the support you've given me, for the favs, comments and watches, despite my inactivity. I appreciate them all!
For the 500 giveaway, I will choose 5 winners and each of them will receive 100.
Simply this journal so you can get a number, and the winners will be chosen via random.org.
So, here are the wonderful art from my watchers! Check them out & give them love!
NSFW OF ME AND FLEESVEON (UNACCEPTABLE!!)*EDIT*i am SO embarassed and angry right now. Unbelievably.NSFW OF ME AND FLEESVEON (UNACCEPTABLE!!)*EDIT*2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I wouldn't mind NSFW of my oc's if it was tame, very tame. And I would still want people to ask my permission first. I would never approve of anyone drawing explicit porn of any of my characters.
ESPECIALLY MY SONA, WHOM IS A REPRENSENTATION OF ME.
http://puu.sh/dHf5t/57e18bd131.jpg (a screencap of the pic on a site called Inkbunny since it needs an account with adult content enabled to be seen. Warning, it is NSFW)
This is an absolute violation. I am utterly disgusted. The picture was drawn in an art trade for :iconjoshythefurret: as the title says, and how the other character in the picture is his sona. (I have a boyfriend and it is not him??)
ALso, :iconfleesveon: tells me there was content drawn of her as well.
I cannot believe he would request this, knowing the both of us are already dating someone as is he, not to mention this is completely off-limits and was done without our permission.

Seer MerchandiseHello everyone!Seer Merchandise2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I'm sure you're all aware now, based on my last couple of uploads, I'm planning on opening a store in which I'll be selling some Seer related merchandise. I've been doing some research over the past few days, attempting to find the best site to do so, which would also offer the best prices possible.
So far I've narrowed it between Cafepress and Zazzle, both of which offer similar services and similar pricing. However, I'm still hesitant about what my best option would actually be.
*Edit, I'm also now looking into "Spreadshirt" anyone know anything about them?
So before making my decision and jumping in, I'd like to ask for your guys' advice. Have any of you used either of said companies to host stores before? If so, what was your experience? Or, perhaps if you know of a better way to sell merchandise than from one of these businesses, please feel free to inform me.
Anyways, I'm hoping to have made an informed decision within the next week, so you can expect news on t
Accepted onto CreepyPasta.com!Hello everyone! I'm super excited right now because my first ever CreepyPasta was accepted onto CreepyPasta.com today!!!

Today is Kage's half birthday XDYeah, today Kagekao is half a year old, yay! -hands Kage half a bottle of wine and half a cake-Today is Kage's half birthday XD2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because you know, I'm to impatient to wait another six months. But, Kagekao was created on 12/29/12.
And look where he is now, so popular ;~; I'm so proud of my little Kage-sama. He used to be just a little background character who I had to explain was my OC in every pic he appeared in, and how he has his own group, tons of fangirls, tons of fanart, and all the wine he can drink because he stole my f-!#ing key! -whacks Kage over the head-
Also I was looking into it, Xavier's birthday is Nov 25 (that's when the OC who he is based on was created), Zehnder is Feb 24 (Not the day he first appeared nameless, but the day he was named and given a personality), Zippers is March 10 (not the day of his first DA appearance but the day of his first sketch), and I'm too lazy to go in to the others' birthdays.
And on a random note. I've been staring at this adorable gif I made a while back :thumb323066551
JEFFERY!Hey guys! Sorry for being kinda dead lately. A lot of turbulent stuff is happening in my life right now, and on top of that, I just came down with a horrible cold! It's starting to look like the next episode of the Seer on Youtube is going to take significantly longer to produce. Unfortunately, it's likely that I'm going to need to recast some of the voices. When I've figured out exactly which characters need to be recast, I'll make a journal directly related to the topic with further information. In the meantime, I just wanted you to be aware of the slowdown. c:JEFFERY!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But to make up for it, I'm going to try to update my channel with some other goodies! First in is a short flash animation that's been in the works for a while! I hope you guys enjoy it!

I'm opening up 3 slots because that's all I'm really able to take at the moment. Sorry if that's not a lot! ;n;
Here's the deal~

Slenderween Part 2My night was eventful. It started out following children down the streets as they came to houses. I wouldn't be there, I'd hide, they'd get their candy and when they turned around, I'd be there. Still. Watching.Slenderween Part 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
If one was so brave to touch me, I would break into a dance. The little ones especially enjoyed this.
I even gave one a plastic spider. It was rather enjoyable.
And then I followed others to go eat burritos.
Sadly I could not eat.

1) which creepypasta(s) do you think is best?
I love Splendorman, he's just so adorable and scary. But for actual creepypastas (I'm saying this because Splendy doesn't really have an 'offical' origin creepypasta), I think Ben is my favorite. And that's saying something, because I generally am not fond of video game pastas.
2) which of your ocs do you think is best?
Kage probably. I relate to him the most, he was my first, and he's the most popular. Not that popularity matters.
3) whats you fav color
4) have you ever cried over a movie
Yes, I can't quite think of any examples though.
5) what would you do if jeff was behind you?
"Hey Jeffy! Are you here because I'm watching ponies?"
