TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE...." I haven't reached the point where I think I'm good at this. that's the drive. i know that its in me to be really good at it. and i think i've come close a few times, but i don't usually look at things i've completed and feel content. Which that means the next thing you start, you go in with that attitude that 'this time, I'm gonna get it right.' it doesnt mean you hate everything you do, but i'm never content. And maybe i never will be but i secretly know that that's what makes you grow." - Jamie HewlettTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE....3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Harley Quinn Contest
In case you haven't heard yet, DC is holding a contest to hire fresh young artists to help work on the new Harley Quinn series. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 This is fantastic news for a lot of artists, as "breaking in" to the big comic book companies can be extraordinarily difficult to do and this helps level the playing field. However, the way they've chosen to hold the contest is to have everyone submit 4 illustrations based on 4 separate scripts... all of which depict Harley Quinn as suicidal and trying to kill herself "comically."
Now first off, I get the fact that Harley Quinn is part of the "Suicide Squad," and that these illustrations are likely poking fun at that. However I feel that fact falls on it's face since the term "Suicide Squa
Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright InfringementNever needed to keep a journal. I decided to install it today just to post this.Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright Infringement2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There is a terrible story about an user that had a complain about copyright infringment, in which she was not the owner of the copyright over the original character as the original belongs to Lauren Faust / Hasbro. The girl unleashed her fanbase (other than all the other pricks around the internet that have no other interesting stuff to do and find it funny) against a Community Manager, Administrator of Deviantart, which i find to be an otrageous thing to do.
I searched for a simple yet effective description of what Copyright means and i found it surprisingly non other than on the respective bashed admin's journal, as a very old entry.
Probably if the people would have bothered to browse and read, they would have been illuminated why the admin took the actions he did on the so often posted screenshot.
What I want to do here is to use the overall issue to compare the differences between copying, plagiari
Innumerable ThemesAlrighty guys! Guess what? It's time for another contest! This is a big one, so it's going to run from August 1st to September 30th. I do realize that, for a lot of you, school will be starting and it may be hard but that's why I extended it so long. Anyway, here we go! This is another joint contest between House-of-Hetalia, HetaliaReaderInserts and HetaliaAxis-Writers so first, you MUST be a member of one of those groups to enter. This contest is entitled, Innumerable Themes. It works like this: the founders and co founders of aforementioned groups, and myself and my co founders, have compiled a list of one word themes. You will choose a number between 1-1000 and we will give you each a theme to write a Hetalia one shot on, using random.com so there is no confusion or accusations. As it is finished, it will be submitted to the folder named Innumerable Themes and you may go back to any founder or co founder of the groups and receive another theme. You can do as many as yInnumerable Themes2 years ago in Personal More Like This

God, I hardly update these journal entries anymoreIt's 2013 and I hardly write in my journal anymore. Huh.God, I hardly update these journal entries anymore3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I've chosen some tough classes for this semester. Gonna learn some university-leveled english, economics, intermediate math, and asian music. Doesn't sound that tough but we're talking college here. Hope I don't get in a mental breakdown or something like that.
Also, my mom really wants me to practice driving so I can get my license. It's gonna be tough for me since I cars as locomotive death traps. She also wants me to get a job, which isn't a good time this semester since I got some tough classes.
Yeah this journal entry isn't very exciting. :/

My Advice to All Aspiring DEATH BATTLE! WritersTo those interested in taking up the trade and joining the deviantART writing circle, devoted to writing matches inspired by the ScrewAttack series DEATH BATTLE, I would like to - first and foremost - make one thing very clear--writing DEATH BATTLE! matches is never easy. Anything but. You will likely face controversy around certain fan circles for the results of certain matches. No doubt you will, at one point or another, receive a flameful message over a result. They will likely be verdicts that people will disagree with of yours, no matter how you argue it. But, at the same time, it is - I find - one of the greatest writing circles that I have seen on dA, and one I am proud to be a part of.My Advice to All Aspiring DEATH BATTLE! Writers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because, at the end, the friendliness of those in the circle - once you fully settle in and start getting down to work - and their willingness to help you improve will not only help you in your analytic skills, but also as a writer in general.
So, today, I would like to

The Ghost of The MontgomeryToday's fun fact: there's a World War 2 shipwreck in the estuary of the River Thames, and it's loaded with high explosives.The Ghost of The Montgomery2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The SS Richard Montgomery, part of an Allied convoy in 1944, drifted into a sandbank and broke in two, taking most of its rather volatile cargo down with it.
Recovery of the explosives has always been deemed "too expensive", and an exclusion zone has been enforced around the wreck for decades, with huge "danger" signs attached to fixed buoys and the masts of the Montgomery itself, which peek out above the shallow waters.
There are a few theories as to what might happen if it goes off, including the flooding of certain parts of London or the release of a toxic cloud (there's some…."interesting" ordinance on board). All that's really certain is that the stuff is still has the capacity to make a bit of noise.

Syn's guide to emotes in commentsFor years the dA community has been crying out for a way to use community made emoticons in comments all around dA. Whilst the Emoticon Legend offers a limited range of emotes, it is rarely updated with new emoticons and many of the emotes on there have become outdated. After several failed attempts at a revamped system, dA is starting to roll out an awesome new system for inserting community emoticons into comments.Syn's guide to emotes in comments2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Whilst this system has been in place on Sta.sh for a while now, it appears some people have missed it, so I thought I would throw together a short tutorial on the basics of the system. Along with community made emoticons, the new sidebar can be used to insert images from your own gallery and deviations from anywhere on dA. However, I will focus only on the emote side of things.

Thats a hard question, imean daily life its were creation truly is, not online. Been talking with other friends ona tablet, talking about how their creative process works, acouple of beers, laughs, argues, intriguing, different point of views like all humans in all topics, but we all agreed that first, you need to think in the concept you want to do then search for reference tools, not the other way around.Creativity aint wired10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Hell’s Kitchen in New York City was a pretty rough place
Like many areas of the city in the 1950s and 1960s, poverty gave way to hardship which in turn created crime. The New York of that time period would be unimaginable to people only familiar with today’s Disneyland–inspired Times Square. But back then things were tough.
Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.
