Free Artwork is not something I doAnd you shouldn't either.Free Artwork is not something I do1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I only direct your attention here because I receive a LOT of requests of for free artwork, whether it be logos, character design and sometimes even graphic novels all intended to be for free.
I'm a working professional making a living with my art. So clearly I won't be doing art for free, when it's my job to do it. BUT, I also support the idea that even artists who work freelance or even just as a hobby shouldn't work for free.
Please check out this video by Stephen Silver who explains this way better than I ever could

PE Prose Basics: Varying SentencesVarying Your SentencesPE Prose Basics: Varying Sentences1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
When I was in college, I took an early morning Anthropology class. I had to wake up at five to catch the bus. Ugh. Yeah, I'm not a morning person. But I did it. The first day, our instructor stood before us and starting reading from the textbook. Word for word. Completely monotone. I was asleep within ten minutes. The rest of the week was the same; arrive, begin listening to the instructor, pass out. I had to drop the class and get whatever refund I could, while I could. It was my worse class experience there.
Most people know that in public speaking, the person talking needs to vary their tone and speech patterns and such to hold their audience's attention. They need to have a rhythm. Otherwise, they'll end up putting the audience to sleep. The same applies to writing. If you use the same sentence length or structure continually, you'll be the literary equivalent of my instructor.

Troll pollution?What's up with all the troll accounts of really bad taste lately?Troll pollution?5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I wish dA would simply ban these people, when they are polluting this site on purpose and act like total jerks screaming for attention? (I mean, it's not even funny at all.) There are these people I have to keep reporting, since they upload commissioned works and my clients are really unhappy about it. Once it gets taken down, I have to report it AGAIN AND AGAIN since it get reposted again!? I have MUCH better things to do than deal with kids like this.
And they accuse the real artists to steal from them when the trust is so obvious? What kind of trolling is that, are they even trying?
And the death threat jokes...
This have gone way too far beyond stupidity x__x
I'm not sure if people realise they can get in LEGIT trouble for doing things like this? (but they are probably too young and ignorant to care) are they really that desperate and have nothing better and productive to do? That's really... sad.

From 500 to 20.000 watchers...... in just one year.From 500 to 20.000 watchers...1 year 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

100 POINT/$1 GIVEAWAY BULLSHIT!! LOOK INSIDE!!Okay, guys... I don't know if it's just me that has noticed this god-awful trend here on dA, but what's up with the 100-point giveaways on the front page of popular journals lately?100 POINT/$1 GIVEAWAY BULLSHIT!! LOOK INSIDE!!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
They all go something like this:
- Add me to your watch list to be aware of future giveaways;
- Add this journal to your list
- Write a journal about this giveaway (Optional).
And the best part? They all average for 200 comments at the end of their life span.
So, what's wrong with this, you may ask? Well. We are talking about TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE BEGGING FOR ONE FUCKING DIGITAL DOLLAR NOT REDEEMABLE OUTSIDE OF DEVIANTART. ONE. FUCKING. DOLLAR.
Did I say that loud enough? One dollar. That's what 100 points are roughly worth.
And what do those people who hold these giveaways get for one dollar?
Let me show you by quoting rule nr. 1:
- Add me to your watch list to be aware of future giveaways

How to earn points:faq279:How to earn points1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yeah. My articles are based off of FAQs But I've had a lot of people ask me this so I'm gonna try my best to answer it. I won't guarantee that you'll be a multi-millionaire and able to swim in a pool of points but I can help you earn some.
For starters, I have to tell you what points are! You can't earn them if you don't know what they are.
To me, points are the currency of dA but they are worthless unless they were earned using the commissions widget, which I will talk about later in this article. But having a lot of it can be good and bad in a way.

People will ask you for it! (Not that giving is a bad thing but once you get a page full of comments asking "points plz" you'll wish you've never had any of those wretched things. )

how to put gifs in a journal or your profileThere's a code snippet you can use to put image URLs onto your custom boxes, it is as followshow to put gifs in a journal or your profile1 year ago in Personal More Like This
< img src="paste URL here"alt="alternative text"width=300height=200 >
There's spaces in between the little '< ' and ' > ' thingies so make sure to remove those so the code works.
to put an image in in the code and make it appear find your favorite images or gifs, right click, and select copy address (Or if you're using chrome select copy image URL)
Once you have the URL, paste it where it says 'paste URL here' (of course you need to remove the 'paste URL here' before pasting the URL, It just need to be in between the quote marks.
so for example, if I wanted a tumblr gif, I would go out and get the Image URL and paste it in between the quote marks. that's all you have to do.
Save the code snippet somewhere accessible like like a note on your desktop or something.
