Need your input for a Photoshop guide!Hey everyone! Just wanted to give you a heads up that I'm working on a super long, detailed guide to maximizing your workflow efficiency and file/layer management in Photoshop. There are also a lot of other assorted tips and tricks in there as well.Need your input for a Photoshop guide!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The reason I wanted to tell you is in case anyone had any other ideas that might be well suited for it, or if you had questions that might give me an idea of more things to include. Some of it will be obvious to some of you, but I've realized over time that things that I assume everyone knows end up being largely unknown by a lot of people.
Currently, here is a portion of what I have:
Lock Transparent Pixels
Alt Color Picking
Multiple Windows for Same Doc

This is often the response I receive when I retaliate against sexual harassment. Welcome to the current trend in the cosplay scene.
Over the years, cosplay has grown in popularity and in power. Cosplayers famous enough can make a living off this hobby while travelling the world, and even the regular con-goers can be approached to be part of a major game launch. Major developers are finally listening to our input, creating complex and detailed characters that anyone can fall head over heels for. Some people hit their head hard when they fall, though. Too hard.
Sex sells in any industry, and the geek subculture has no exemption from this law. Female characters are regularly tossed in skimpy outfits to draw in their target audience, with their fleshbags defying gravity and cameltoes getting way more attention than needed. But seriously, what is wrong with this? What is wrong
Concerns about PETAClive here. I just want everybody to know that the whole PETA issue is extremely troubling to me and there is no question of me rubber-stamping the issue without me talking to people on every side of the argument and then making up my own mind.I became involved with this project out of my love for animals.I will not put funds into the hands of those who are not the life-loving souls they claim to be.Until I am certain that I am dealing with those on the side of the angels, I am walking with a cautious stride,and ready to take on anyone who hurts the innocent,as I'm sure would all of you.Thank you for your concern for those who suffer simply because they were born into a careless world.Concerns about PETA3 years ago in Personal More Like This

This time we have a new feature in Sta.sh land for you to try out!
Introduce your stack to the world
A few weeks ago we released shareable stacks allowing you to share an entire folder of your Sta.sh with others rather than having to share each image separately.
Well now we're giving you the ability to describe your stack and give it a bit of an introduction to them, whether you're asking for opinions on which photos from a recent photo shoot you should publish to your gallery or simply showing some unfinished sketches of masterpieces in the working
Now you can quickly and easily share stacks of almost anything!

Sta.shHi again, beta crew.Sta.sh4 years ago in Personal More Like This
As mentioned recently, we’re making a bunch of changes to the new Stash...
If you're new to Stash, find out more about it here: http://devbug.deviantart.com/journal/Stash-215498179
The latest changes: Sta.sh is now a separate section of the deviantART Network - with its own header, and its own look.
Here's a sneak peek!
"Stash" no longer exists on your Submit menu, but instead can be gotten to one of two ways:
You can pick "Sta.sh" from your main profile menu.. next to Logout and Settings
Or, you can type http://sta.sh into your address bar
Note: to switch back to deviantART, pick the "deviantART" item from the Sta.sh main menu.

deviantART v999We're working on deviantART v999. So far, it's a lot of prototypes, concepts and color explorations that are waiting for clarity on some technologies coming out of R&D.deviantART v9992 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
A lot of you probably wonder where the hell our mobile apps are. I do. Quick answer: They're trapped under a bigger project. It's worth the wait, but we're far overdue on release. The biggest problem has been the Message Center, whose architecture, look and feel, etc. simply doesn't port over to Mobile & Tablets. For these, we need to streamline the incredibly powerful experience of deviantART's message center, so that it can be consumed on smaller screens without having to click lots of buttons.
Activity Feeds are supposed to be the obvious solution. But at deviantART, people love their Message Centers specifically because they aren't feeds. Each item from your +watch list, or Feedback area comes in as an item. Each item must be removed from the Message Center by you. This is great because it allows us to

With your help, we hope we won't need to relay on commissions as much as we've been needing, which means we'll have more time to invest on the comic!

GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go OnGODZILLA (2014) has hit theaters, and for months (years for most Godzilla fans), potential audiences have been anticipating a return to form for the Lizard King - a film that will revisit the themes of the 1954 original and deliver a brooding, apocalyptic story of destruction and doom.GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go On1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, what we got could best be described as a sequel to THE TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA (1975).
Trust me, I wouldn't begin a review with a hyperbolic, attention-grabbing statement like that without explaining it. For the moment, let us turn back the clock and toss out a quick recap of the film's plot. Obviously, this review will contain a metric crapload of SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS, but you'll complain anyway, so let's get on with this.
After a mysterious event in 1954 regarding the Castle Bravo nuclear test and an unknown giant organism, the story jumps to 1999, where two scientists, Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Dr. Graham (Sally Hawkins) are investigating a massive underground tomb in the

Long Road Ahead...Hello Fellow Deviants,Long Road Ahead...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think it's about time I gave a little update to those who helped me though the worst ordeal of my life so far and show the remaining people who commissioned me for artwork quite some time ago that I haven't forgotten about them.
It's been almost two year since my home was broken into multiple times while I was away from home trying to help take care of a sick friend that my Mom had been taking care of by herself beforehand. I made a journal entry here on deviantArt giving thanks to to those who have like my work over the years and to those who have helped me through such a difficult time. The truth is that "thank you" also going to serve as a "farewell for now" if it weren't for the unexpected response I received and the intervention of one very kind person.

News to know: beware of phishing scams!There is currently an individual or group of individuals who have created a fake deviantART login page, and they're using hijacked accounts to continue to share the URL of the fake page.News to know: beware of phishing scams!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please spread the word:
If you click a link that directs you through the deviantART "There Be Monsters Out There" outgoing link page and you unexpectedly return back to deviantART while logged out, check the URL of where you are before entering any of your details.
The proper URL for the actual deviantART login page is: deviantart.com/users/login. (Note that there is nothing between "deviantart" and "com" except for a "dot.")
If you find yourself unexpectedly logged out after clicking an offsite link, immediately check the URL to see if anything extra has been added -- this would indicate that you are in fact on a third-party website masquerading as deviantART. For example, if the URL reads something like deviantart.[som

BatmathI enjoyed the Nolanverse Batman films a lot, but I've just run the numbers:Batmath2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bruce trained for 7 years (Alfred mentions his absence in Batman Begins) and he sulked for 8 years between Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises. Between that, and including the short time in Dark Knight Rises in which he wore the cowl, Nolanverse Bruce was only Batman for about a year, tops (Joker's line "Let's rewind a year" tells us this).
One. F**king. Year.
"Caped Crusader" the Nolanverse Batman is not.
He is "Bat Temp".
CommissionsSo I'm finally getting off my rump and opening up commissions.Commissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I'll be posting the kinda prices I'm working with, so what you'll get for *blank* amount of money, what's free and what costs more. Animations will be included in commission options but I'll not be doing anything beyond a minute at the moment. If this takes off or at least gives me something to work with I'll also be picking up new copic markers and copic marker cards will be added into the list of commission options. As it stands, the only markers I own are red, dark green, brown, peach, black, grey and a blender so if you want something that involves only those colours let me know and we can work something out.
Hopefully in few weeks I'll be posting a set of examples.
For now, here are the prices. If you've got anything you really want send me a PM. If you wanna see what you'll be getting for your buck, hold onto that idea for another seven days.
Bust --> $5 (+$2 per chara)

deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!Spam is a constant thorn in the side of every Internet user's daily life. From the mundane to the surreal, these emails appear in our inboxes so frequently, messages from South African attorneys offering $10 million dollars get marked as spam without a second thought to savvy users.deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
We define spam as the misuse of communication systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately to our deviants. Typically, the content of spam messages is aimed at advertising a product that is often counterfeit or potentially malicious. With the rise of social networking, there's been an increase in more direct spamming -- companies who directly target your social network profiles.
"Over the last few years, deviantART has had a small but unfortunate stream of such abuse. Usually, it’s as easy as banning the offending members and moving on to more pressing problems, but recently something happened that caused us to re-evaluate how we handle spam issues."
