First th' good news. Thanks t' me friend :iconGeorge551: I've just sold me 6th copy of the book and received a stunnin' 5 star review. I'm ever grateful t' him fer helpin' me in that regard and it just plain warms me heart.
Now t' th' bad news. As of today, :iconRealistWriter: is hereby excommunicated from the Black Fedora Pirates. Why? Let me explain.
Two days back he posted a deviation condemnin' th' DA system. This I wouldn't have minded, if not for the fact that he condemned popular artists as well, citing that groups are the only reason fer our success.
Honestly, that's a load of horse crap and I'll tell ya all why. He himself stated that if everyone is usin' groups then yer deviations won't be seen even amongst the mass that gets pumped in everyday. Guess what, that's why ye work has t' be good, it has t' have a proper author tag and an appealing title. The first lines have t' draw the reader in.

Writing Editorial: Killing CharactersGiven that I'm now into the swing of my original novel, I thought I'd begin a new segment where I share my knowledge on certain topics.Writing Editorial: Killing Characters4 months ago in Personal More Like This
For all you writers out there these segments will help you be better writers.
Granted I am still an amateur writer at best
I maintain the argument that I at least KNOW what makes good writing or at the very least on the topics we discuss I know what needs to be talked about.
This will be the first of several editorials and I only decided to start on this topic because of the current Bleach and the recent chapter of Fairy Tail.
So let's begin
What does it mean to kill a character?
Well killing a character basically means that you're getting rid of them, they're gone.
You can't use them anymore. (Unless of course death is cheap in your world, but who wants that?)
PEOPLE DIE WHEN THEY ARE KILLED!
It's very easy to say off a red shirt with no plot importance, but what about when you want to kill off a character that you feel your audience

Kleines, deutsches Llama Badget TutorialQ: Was sind Badges?Kleines, deutsches Llama Badget Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Badges sind einfach nur Abzeichen.
Also eine Art Auszeichnung, dargestellt durch kleine Icons, die ihr von anderen Usern erhalten, oder selbst an andere User verschenken könnt.
Ihr Zweck ist es den natürlichen Sammeltrieb zu befriedigen.
(Und das Ego zu füttern)
Q: Wo sehe ich meine Abzeichen, oder die der anderen User?
Wer bereits welche Abzeichen gesammelt hat, steht auf jeder Profilseite rechts oben.
Klickt ihr in eurem Profil auf die Icons, gelangt ihr zu einer Übersicht, in der ihr seht wie viele Abzeichen ihr bereits gesammelt habt, wer euch welche Abzeichen geschenkt hat, wie viele Abzeichen ihr verschenkt habt und welche Stufe eure Abzeichen bereits erreicht haben.

Being Real with PoesdaughterThere's nothing better than a good story...unless it's a good story that also happens to be true. And that's why we have an entire genre known as "creative non-fiction." It doesn't get a lot of press on dA, but essayists like David Sedaris and authors like Mary Roach and Jon Ronson routinely make the bestseller list, and rightly so. Creative non-fiction isn't limited to essays and memoirs.Being Real with Poesdaughter3 weeks ago in Literature Features More Like This
Which doesn't say what creative non-fiction is. Thankfully, better minds are on hand to answer that question.
While PoesDaughter is new to dA, she's no stranger to creative writing—her master's thesis is a series of creative non-fiction essays.
What is "creative non-fiction"?
Oh, geez. This very question always sparked interesting "discussions" in my creative writing classes in college, and I don't think anybody had like definitions! I mean, this is something that's been up for debate for...

Do you really want to spend a long amount of time on a drawing only to receive the equivalent of half a dollar?
If you want to share things for cheap or free because you enjoy doing it than by all means do so, but what I'm saying is, don't under value yourself, and for the love of god don't do commissions for 5 or 10 points. You're working for next to nothing if you do that.
What you need to do is find a good place to sell your art so you can sell it at a reasonable fair price that's fair to both you and the buyer. There are places around on dA for this.
Commissions-R-Us say that "A group dedicated to helping people in the search of commissions to be made, allowing them to find somebody to request a commission from deviants at different ways to pay, such as using the Deviantart Points, paypal, etc.
We also have a Priority Commission List for those who are in need of money! Please check them out! "
Drawing advice, as it were.Today on Shrinemaiden.org, I was talking with a gentleman who was having trouble making progress with his art. That is, he was stagnating--drawing every day, yet not getting better. I guessed--correctly, as it turns out--that his problem was sameness. Line drawing, anime style, #2 pencil, day in, day out. How did I know? Because that used to be me.Drawing advice, as it were.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some artists can put pen to paper and draw from nothing, just put down a couple eyes and scrit-scrit-scrit, next thing you know, there's a cute girl where once there was naught but white space. That's not how I operate, and in my view it's not how beginners should learn.
We've all fantasized about being able to beam images straight from our mind onto paper. But if we could, we'd quickly find out that our mental images aren't as precise as we give them credit for. Why? Because our brains are wired to retain only enough information about an obje

You want to make a Flash Dress Up Game?But you're not entirely familiar with Flash? WELL FEAR NOT! Deviantart supplies A VAST AMOUNT OF TUTORIALS from people who know and have some fair amount of understanding of what to do.You want to make a Flash Dress Up Game?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I'll help you get started by supplying some information and also recommending a couple very nice and informative tutorials about Flash. Plus don't be discouraged if you suck at drawing in Flash, I provided a fair amount of information for an alternative solution at the end!
What you need:
- Flash* (any kind of Flash where you can write Action Script 2.0... NOT Action Script 3.0, these tutorials cover AS 2.0)
*If you're wondering what kind of Flash I use, I'll tell you. I use a super old school Flash that does the job juuust fine. It's called Macromedia Flash MX, also known as "Flash 6.0 r25" Yuuuup, really old. I've had it since junior year in high school (approx. 5 years). I have Flash Professional CS5, and it looks pretty much the same as Flash 6, so don't worry.
Believe in Yourself. Nobody Else Will.This last 6 months saw the turn around of all the people in my life (as in everyone) asking me to quit art and focus on something else. I no longer receive constant suggestions of other careers that I should pursue. I'm sure many of you have had awkward conversations with strangers or elderly people about your desire to become an artist. I had one today (she told me art was not a feasible career). Only now my belief in myself is at 100% so that person walked away believing in me as well.Believe in Yourself. Nobody Else Will.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I could go on about my personal journey and about how butthurt I was that people weren't acknowledging the work that I was doing; the sacrifice that I was making, but most of you can relate as well. I actually developed quite an ego. A feeling that I was better than all of them, and that they were just ignorant assholes. Was that productive? I'm not sure. Would it be productive now that I'm entering galleries and doing shows (schedule coming soon)? FUCK NO!

For judging I will need to contact everyone and there will be some behind the scenes stuff... (seriously how are we supposed to judge everyone's amazing efforts, this is overdrive) I am not giving a date when the winners are announced. But I will follow the timeline mentioned before.
A question about edits- minor edits are allowed. For example changing of levels/channels or if you forgot to colour one bit. Big changes means that regardless of the time you entered I will move your entry to the late folder. I've capped all the submissions!
Thank you very much! Hosting this contest, I'm really happy i did it!

My 2 cents about educationON THE SUBJECT OF SCHOOLS, I FELT COMPELLED TO CHIME IN. If you can afford an expensive school then take it if you like but if you can't then obviously don't go to an expensive school. Just like you wouldn't buy a car you couldn't afford.My 2 cents about education9 months ago in Personal More Like This
The best thing about the "good" schools are the students because when you hear a school is great everybody flocks there, including many of the most talented... but notice I said "many" and not "all" the most talented.
"Superstars" can come from city, any shape, any color, ANY AGE. We've seen it many times before.
The best way to cultivate talent is to interact with other talented or potentially talented people. It just makes us all work even harder. I had the great fortune of being in the same school and year with Pixar's James Robertson, Dani Strijleva, Ben Su and John Lee. And these are just a handful of the very talented people from my year. Just by being in the same class, this has influenced me to work harder than ever when I really didn't w
