Happy new year!It's a little late post here, but here's a sketch I did for new years (: Thank you guys for your support through 2014!Happy new year!2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I've had a rough year, especially in the first half. Life is not the same this year, and for someone who has been used to being able to dedicate 100% of her time to work and nothing else, challenging family relationship strains and adapting to life with a girlfriend was difficult--even if it was a good change and great learning experience. I'm not nearly as prolific as before, and sometimes I even find it difficult to be as creative as before, because I can no longer afford to think about my work as much. In contrast, I learned a lot more about taking care of others and myself, even if what I learned was how little I know about taking care of others and myself. Instead of contemplating my story and characters, I thought more about how hard it is to be kind and understanding. I tried really hard to make myself be more compassionate; my aloof nature made it so that very

shilin.storenvy.com restocked + shipping slashed!shilin.storenvy.comshilin.storenvy.com restocked + shipping slashed!2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Carciphona volume 1 sold out not long ago, and I’ve finally restocked those this week!Shipping prices lowered as promised in the past month!
I’ve been working on figuring out a new shipping company last month, and I am ready (I think LOL MAYBE) to switch over! Shipping has always been the bane of my shop because I’m in Canada. I’ve got tons of questions about it in the past year that range from confused to outraged. But it’s in my best interest to find ways to lower shipping prices, because while some people are in such disbelief that Canadian shipping can be that bad (it can) might even think that I bloat shipping prices to make more money, high shipping costs actually makes me lose business because SURPRISE, no one wants to buy overpriced things.
The new company ships through USPS which means I can lower shipping prices to USA by as much as 70%
New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! But feel free to do it just for fun/improvement!The 50 Foot / 50 Hand Challenge! CLOSED!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This was a drawing challenge from :iconSenshiStock: and :iconmostlyguystock:!
Hands and feet are pretty hard to draw. Lots of artists struggle with them! Even when other things come naturally, hands and feet can still be quite a problem. The best way to get better at drawing hands and feet is to study them!
The Challenge: Sketch or draw 50 feet AND 50 hands from reference photos or life.
Deadline: The deadline has passed for this challenge, but you can still participate and make yourself a better artist!
You can post them as one giant post, in groups, one at a time, however you want! But please make a FOLDER in your gallery and put them all in there then send me a link to the folder. (If you do one submission with ALL of them at once, then you don't need the folder.)
HOW TO QUALIFY: In order to make this a little easier for myself, please number yo

Prints 101: Changing Your Print Source File"Hey Uncle Reno! How can I update my print to match the deviation?"Prints 101: Changing Your Print Source File8 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a question that I get asked in the Help Desk quite a bit, minus the Uncle Reno part. I have previously touched on this with the article Prints 101: Editing your Prints but I would like to highlight this specific action here as it is an important thing to know, since I will otherwise reject your print for not resembling the deviation. I can neither confirm nor deny making any explosion sound effects while rejecting prints.
There are many reasons why an artist would need to update their Prints source file. For instance, to edit or remove a watermark mistakenly added, an updated version of the image, or even simply to upload a larger version of the image, as the deviation uploaded originally is too small to be added at a size that you want.
By default, the source file will always be the original image you have uploaded
Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!Celebrate deviantART's 13th Birthday!1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.

You May Say I'm An Artist...You May Say I'm An Artist...1 month ago in Art Features More Like This
I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?
“It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times,
in the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light,

Tips for Starting Commissions I was thinking about my last journal, where I asked why everyone and their cat wanted to sell commissions so badly. I recieved some really insightful answers.Tips for Starting Commissions8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I also had a lot of people asking me "How much should I charge for my work?"
I'll add a Disclaimer right here in front, as for whatever reason, something always offends someone :iconstunplz: . So I'll start off by saying, this is just my personal journal, and I'm just one person who has some experience with this. I'm not making a judgment on who should sell what, just writing some things I have personally learned along the way.
Well that's out of the way :iconyodawgplz:
So most artists starting off go through a period of confusion on how to price work. They get a lot of suggestions, or theories from well-meaning people such as:
"Artists always undervalue themselves. Don't charge less than minimum wage per hour"
This is true, and I agree. However, unfortunately,
Deviant and Art MentionsMentions: Connecting PeopleDeviant and Art Mentions1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that makes engaging friends and artists in conversation more dynamic than ever before.
What is a Mention?
A Mention is when a deviant’s username, icon, or artwork is included in a comment or Journal. Mentions create links to the deviants or artwork you include, allowing you to highlight artists and engage deviants with ease.
Links to pages on deviantART can quickly be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART.
Deviants you mention are notified in the new Mentions section of the Message Center, making engaging and involving others in conversation a simple, hassle-free experience.
How to Mention
There are four ways to mention a deviant.
MemoriesI've been in China for almost a week now, and all the memories I have of this place is flooding back. Unfortunately, many of those memories are quite negative. A lot of people commented on my last journal asking why my stepmom and half brother had tried to kill me. It's not a secret and I'm in a weird mood right now so I'll retell the story.Memories10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I last visited China almost five years ago. I was unfortunate enough to be stranded at the LAX airport for two days. During that time, I met another girl my age who was also returning to China to visit family. We talked for a long time and I found out her parents are also divorced like mine. She told me how her stepmom would regularly burn her with cigarette buds. I was horrified but I felt lucky that my stepmom is kind to me. I told her I was lucky to have a nice stepmom. I had never been so wrong.
When I first arrived, my stepmom greeted me kindly, and we talked, joked, and hung out like a regular family would. But her mask was quickly cracking a

Sailor Moon PLZ accounts?Okay, so we all know PLZ accounts, right? Like this: :iconsonicplz: Well, I see tons of Sonic related PLZs...but not many for Sailor Moon except for these ones. :iconSailorMoonplz: :iconusagilaplz: I've tried searching around for some and I can't seem to find any. So, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to make some? I know it's kind of silly, but I can't resist asking. I did a search and found some images that I thought would make some good plzs. I was going to make them myself, but I'm not sure about it. So...would any of you be willing? You would totally make my day if you would. xD Oh, and if any of you have some good images of funny Sailor Moon expressions, please let me know so I can add them here. And if you find any good Sailor Moon plzs, I'd like to know about them, too. ^w^Sailor Moon PLZ accounts?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

My recipe for sopor slime pieOK DUDESMy recipe for sopor slime pie4 years ago in Personal More Like This
YOU WILL NEED
-a pie crust, or a thin loaf of cake (either will do)
-two packages of lemon lime jell-o
-a can of sprite, 7-up or lemon faygo
-two packages of vanilla pudding, or topping
-lots of green food colouring
-FOLLOW THESE STEPS IF YOU HAVE A PIE CRUST INSTEAD OF CAKE-
line your dish with greaseproof paper, to make it easier to remove the finished product.
Place pie crust into dish, and chill until hard.
follow the jell-o package instructions, but after adding the boiling hot water, replace cold water with your soda. Add lots of green food colouring at this point.
Pour this mixture into the pie crust, and refrigerate until the jell-o is set.
mix your vanilla pudding with 400 mls of milk SLOWLY and whisk for five minutes.
Yes, five whole minutes.
Add lots more green food colouring to the pudding.
gently pour the green puddng mixture on top of the jell-o, being EXTREMELY CAREFUL to keep the layers intact and not messed up.
