So... What are you?((Before anyone blows me up, this is not mainly about supporting my beliefs, but telling everyone to chose what they think is right, and to not just pick a side because it "best matches them." Morals are yours to keep, and you don't have to fit exactly into any of these categories.))So... What are you?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What am I? What is my stance?
I would be a Republican,
but I support less spending.
I would be a Democrat,
but I believe in equal taxation and am for lax gun control.
I would be Conservative,
but I support legalizing gay marriage.
I would be Liberal,
but I support the death penalty.
I would be Feminist,
but I'm anti-abortion.
I would be anti-government,
but I don't want chaos.
No matter which of these "clubs" I try to fit into, they always kick me out.
So I stand alone, by myself, and decide not to be a part of any of it.
I can do without a label, what matters are my beliefs.
Same goes for everyone else.
Don't alter your beliefs just to fit into some category.

Draw Shia Contest! Win a 12 Month sub & 400 poThe Idea?Draw Shia Contest! Win a 12 Month sub & 400 po3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea is pretty simple, its been done before by almost every one who has ever hosted a contest. Not original but still, its fun.
Draw your Original Character with Shia (My OC). There see, simple?
You can use any Original Character. As long as they belong to you. They can be doing anything you want them to be doing and they can be in any pose. I don't mind mature content as long as its not over 18. Or I can't view it. (ANOTHER YEAR YET).
Shia's new outfit reference is here:
However if you wish to draw her in this outfit you may:
(Credit goes to for that image for the original drawings of it are awful).
You may also choose this old design:
Or finally, this one:
(I leave you to invent the below section on that ;D like lady-llama )
Please stick to those four though, whichever you choose is up to you.
You may combine them if you can!

If you read that, you'd realize that yes, the reason why most of the reports for art theft aren't fixed is because "alterations, edits, traces, and references are becoming regarded as acceptable by dA"
That means that deviantART staff is accepting recolors/traces/edits/any alterations as A-OK. Can anyone explain to me why this is okay? Or is staff just allowing more eleven to thirteen-year-olds to steal? Is it because they want more users? To me, users who submit original and decent art is better than immature children who trace for fun.
I guess now the only way to get your stolen art removed is by asking (or more like demanding) whatever little shit decided to trace, recolor, etc. to remove your stolen content.
But no, seriously. These are the kind of t
1000 Point Giveaway! (deadline 1/7/14)Hey guys, it's been awhile!1000 Point Giveaway! (deadline 1/7/14)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been incredibly busy and I know I said I'd be active some time in November but life can get pretty crazy. Apologies to those who read LoE, I'll try and continue with that once finals are over and life settles down a bit.
Anyways, since I've been gone I've had no time to run any contests. Hopefully in January I'll be able to host another writing contest and hopefully that one will go a lot more smoothly than last time. That one was the first one I ever ran so I didn't really know what I was doing. @_@ I know I have a few comments and notes to go through and hopefully I'll manage but that might overwhelm me a bit. xD' So it'll be last on my list. If it's urgent, just send another note with the title "urgent" and I'll make sure to read and respond to that first.
Now on to the 1000 point giveaway. This will again be a feedback giveaway but if you don't have time, fav this journal for a chance at 100 points!

Vis's close friends~
My allies and enemies change too frequently to bother keeping track of them. But I'd like to think I know who my friends are... I consider someone to be my friend when I can trust them at least to a degree, I feel comfortable and relaxed around them, and I enjoy their company-- someone I don't need to constantly struggle to get along with, or at least not anymore (though, the friendships that require some work are the most rewarding). Not many people can replicate this feeling in me, so please don't be offended if I don't consider you a friend. It doesn't mean I think you're a bad person.

I find it absolutely funny......when people bitch about how much other users' artworks suck because of how old some of the users are, how terribly drawn the artworks are, because some of the users use MS Paint, and so on.I find it absolutely funny...6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey, here's a newsflash for ya: I'm pretty sure that your artworks weren't also that great (to other people) when you had first started drawing and were a beginner too.
However someone draws is their choice. Whether they want to improve or not is also their choice.
And I'm pretty sure that other people use different art programs because they may enjoy 'em, may find 'em easier to use, and so on.
So long as they did try their best at drawing, then that is good enough. I'm not afraid to admit that my artworks are crap, but I don't care. After all, I only draw for my amusement.
The only few things that I don't consider pictures to be art are those who post stolen images, trace someone else's art and post it up, and so on.
Drawing References & ResourcesUpdated: Aug 13 2012Drawing References & Resources6 years ago in Personal More Like This
EVEN MOAR SKIN SWATCHES!
The best way to improve is to draw from real life. That's the best way to learn. If you don't know how to draw a certain angle of a hand or an arm, you shouldn't fudge it, you should always look it up and figure out how to draw it right. Hiding the hands behind the body is a no-no, people! The proof of bsing is easy to see: http://neofox.deviantart.com/journal/ART-knowledge-is-power-282518336
But often it's very hard to weed through the crap to find good stock to use as reference. So here I am, doing the work for you and naming some helpful resources.
I've been teaching my friend Kitteh how to draw, so I'm learning first hand just what steps to take to improve.
There's one very special thing you must do to improve. With this special thing you can go from amateur to pro. And that's PRACTICE. You can get all the references and tutorials you want, buy all the books, save all the tutorials and referenc
A New Way to Make SuggestionsHello Beta Testers!A New Way to Make Suggestions1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
For some time we've been running a limited test of the Ideas Forum on our Zendesk Help Desk integration. Today, we're expanding this test to our Beta Testers.
This forum allows for a great deal of flexibility in how we approach suggestions.
We can mark items that are planned, completed, or not planned at this time. We can also highlight staff responses on forums, giving more weight to responses that are important in informing deviants why we can, or cannot, take a suggestion into consideration at this time.
Deviants can vote on one anothers' posts, giving greater community control over what content is reviewed. The more votes, the higher the suggestion will appear in the forum! Unlike our current forum, threads don't expire, and when creating a new thread you'll be prompted with similar threads.
These are only a few of the features the new forum has, but altogether our testing has shown thus far that
EDIT. Are your stamps here?http://stamps-no.tumblr.com/EDIT. Are your stamps here?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So there is this blog that puts peoples stamps up and insults them. They add them up without anyone's permission.
Are yours up there? Some of mine are. Seriously, they should just comment on my stamp disagreeing instead of putting them on a website without my permission.
I would of said yes because I would like to see what the seemingly twelve year old has to say, plus I do not care, plus it is freedom of speech.
But freedom of speech shouldn't be using peoples stamps on another website without permission.
Edit: The guy made a post saying he will remove any stamps if asked to. He seems pretty mature about it, so it is okay now

"BAWW PORN IS FOR LOSERS"
"BAWWW FETISHES ARE DISGUSTING"
"BAAWWWWW SEX IZ NAT ART !!!!!"
... Honestly ? On both DeviantART and other sites :
As long as they're not hurting anyone nor fucking with the law ... Just leave them be ... It's even truer considering that 70% of sexual art here is made of nothing more but drawings/animations ... I didn't know pixels could make people that butthurt . Of course, that doesn't make their things beautiful : If you don't like it ... Remove, leave, and don't look at it anymore. That's what every responsible person should do... If you don't like it, don't bother with it ... But they have every right to be here ... Believe me, on sites such as Yahoo, Google and DeviantART... Knowing that in America, the LAW FUCKS YOU, if they were doing anything illegal, they would have been thrown to jail already, for life .
