PIPA and SOPA... They LiedLink for PIPA/SOPA haters (personally, I think they're using doing the right thing as an excuse to seize power): http://guardian54.deviantart.com/#/d4my09wPIPA and SOPA... They Lied4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Remember this: The Nazis started by burning books, ACTA/PIPA/SOPA started by burning websites. Megaupload was the first, it will not be the last. When the masses no logner have information, they will be easy prey for the politicians to mould and shape to their will.
Wikipedia has so much copyrighted but not authorized material that its, by my estimate, 15 million web pages will become victims of ACTA in short order if laws supporting the ACTA treaty, signed secretly on October 1, 2011, are passed. That is equal to the number of Holocaust deaths of all groups, not just Jews. It is a bastion of modern knowledge, and let's face it, knowledge is power, they take our knowledge away, they take our power away, where does our power go? To them, of course. Websites may not be equal to human lives, but to us, they are negligible compared to l

Have faith in your dreams, and someday, your rainbow will come smiling through.

At this point, Disney was almost bankrupt because of the aftermath of World War II. They needed an assured big hit and fast, and the result was 'Cinderella'. It was attempt to go back to their roots and to try to repeat the 'Snow White effect' as in make a movie with a female heroine based on a popular fairy tale. While not as intense as Snow White, the result was a cute and decent film. Besides, this film saved the 'Walt Disney Studio' since if it failed then that would've been the end of Disney! The protagonist, Cinderella, became one of the most popular yet controversial Princesses in the line up. According to the marketing aspect of the franchise, Cinderel

From 500 to 20.000 watchers...... in just one year.From 500 to 20.000 watchers...2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was a cold day in February. I can still remember that day.
It wasn't that busy at my job. Just another day of mostly waiting for feedback. So I took the liberty to surf around the internet for a bit. Like every day before, I checked DeviantArt. I had posted some art some while ago. I submitted it to some groups, but didn't quite get the response that I hoped for. Let alone; the feedback. It's hard to get feedback on your art. Nowadays most people just fave and run, or tell you that your work is awesome (which is sweet, of course) without any further explanation. Most of the art forums that I used to reside on, where either dead, or I'd outgrown the user-base so much that I was at the point that there weren't any more talented users that could give me feedback anymore. If I had to wrap it up in just one word: Frustrating. That's what is was.
Of course I had my idols on DeviantArt. Famous people like yuumei en sakimichan whose watchers hit those astronom
Hacking Your Socially Anxious BrainI say "socially anxious brain" because I'm not referring to social anxiety disorder, I'm referring to being socially anxious. Most people experience some form of social anxiety at one or another point in their life, and even though it's relatively common, being stressed out feeds forward, which doesn't bode well for the next time you have to socialize.Hacking Your Socially Anxious Brain6 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Of course, if you have a strong genetic and environmental predisposition to anxiety, trying to "hack" your brain won't fix everything. That's like telling someone with a BRCA1 mutation to will themselves out of breast cancer by eating healthy foods—it's good to eat healthy foods anyway, but there's a point where you have to see a doctor.
Being socially anxious IS NOT because you are an introvert/extrovert. Do not confuse a preference with an excuse.

Do I need a special program?
No! Something as simple as Microsoft Paint, Paint Shop Pro or the Gimp, all of which are free, are all you need to start with pixel art. Well, that and a mouse/touchpad (and a computer ). Photoshop can be used to pixel as well, but it is costly, so unless you plan to use Photoshop for a multitude of digital media, it isn't the best investment for pixel art.
Free downloads of MS Paint and Paint Shop Pro can be found here: http://www.bunnystick.com/tdlc.html

How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible.How to beat procrastination (part 2)1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful!
Create the habit of drawing
First thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:
"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."
Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi

Have a great day.
Recently, people like J-u-d-a-s have been hacked, having their accounts deactivated. Fortunately, J-u-d-a-s was able to regain control of his account.
I will be telling you how to avoid the same thing happening to you.
First of all, I'd like to say that the hackers are very smart and deceitful. They have made a login page very similar to deviantART's, but with this tutorial, you will be able to see the difference between the two and know whether you really need to log in or if it's a scam.

In 2014, DeviantArt turned 14 years old. Fourteen years is a long time, some of you reading this may be younger than that. I've gathered some historical information with the help of Moonbeam13 and some members of the Community Relations team to help enlighten those of you who have joined in recent years and missed out on a chunk of DeviantArt's life.
I hope you enjoy taking a step back in time!
Please note: it is extremely difficult to track down some events in DeviantArt's history (in particular, the first few years) and that some dates are only approximate.

Using HTML on deviantARTUsing HTML on deviantART5 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

Manga and Anime vs. Fan ArtFix That Miscat! is a series of articles aimed at explaining the differences between the galleries that are commonly confused or abused in the category system here on deviantART.Manga and Anime vs. Fan Art3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Today we will be covering two galleries that are also commonly mixed and confused:
Manga and Anime vs. Fan Art
Fan art includes those artworks that are based on or contain material such as characters, settings, concepts or universes in general that are copyrighted to someone else other than the artist creating said Fan artwork. According to aunjuli "Fan Art is a way to show appreciation for someone else's creation.The root of it all is love, gratitude, and the desire to create more than what was originally handed to you."
Fan Art comes in many styles, including but not limitted to Manga & Anime.Manga, on the other side, is a defined style of art with very characteristic traits to it. It's also referred to sequentia
