'Why Was My Digital Art Declined?'Now after two PSA blogs, it’s time to talk about a subject matter that’s near and dear to my heart.'Why Was My Digital Art Declined?'4 years ago in Personal More Like This
More specifically, the reasons behind why some pieces of digital art can be rejected from our group’s gallery.
This is going to be a long journal. I’m not trying to pick on digital artists by going into full detail about this… it’s just the medium that I’m the most familiar with so I know what to look for.
Don't ever draw like the above picture. Please.
All right. I’m just going to dive into this.
White speckles along the line art usually occurs when you use the paint bucket tool directly on the layer where your line art is. In my opinion, he best way to do this is to use multiple layers when you are coloring. Put your line art on the top layer and set it to ’multiply’. This will get rid of
Guide for submitting OCs (UPDATED NOW W/ VIDEO!)We here at Your OC Sucks have 3 ways you can submit oc's to the show. You can either submit to our Deviantart account, or Tumblr, or directly to our email. Just follow these steps for submitting to the individual sitesGuide for submitting OCs (UPDATED NOW W/ VIDEO!)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Deviant Art: The most preferred place for OC submissions. Send a note with a link to the OC that you wish to submit, try to include any backstory the character may have. Its preferred that 3 different pieces could be submitted to the show (but it is still okay to only send in only 2 or 1) Deviant art is the preferred place to submit to because we can easily add the work of art to one of our Favorites folder and easily link back to the piece and show the proper attention that your (or other peoples) art deserves. The note will receive a private reply to let you know that the OC is being considered for an episode or not.
Tumblr: This is a better option for people who wish to have something they could reblog to their Tumblr blogs. A submission to our Tumblr will be sh

I HAVE TRANSLATED THE MAIN MENU INTO ENGLISH.
I don't have the sub-menu for when you click on a specific guy, but I have translated the main menu! It is in English now!
THIS IS AWESOME.
I had way too much trouble figuring out how to do this, but once you've got it, you've got it. If anyone is out there, all it takes is the replacement of a single file which I can probably find some way to upload somewhere.
If you want to do it yourself, you totally can:
Step 1: click on folders in Shimeji.jar until you run into main.class, and take it
Step 2: obtain a .class/.java decompiler
Step 3: Replace everything in Japanese in Notepad or another text editor that you like.
Step 4: Rename your xml files accordingly.
Step 5: Obtain a compiler and compile the .java that you edited.
Step 6: Place your new .class into the proper spot inside of Shimeji.jar
(pro-tip: it is easiest to unjar all the files and then rejar them with the main.class replaced)
Step 7: Celebrate on

Moar Digital Art Tutorials and Resources...Hey guys, as a followup to my last post about digital art, I'm going to post a few more things that I've found and hopefully give a little more insight into the medium...Moar Digital Art Tutorials and Resources...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is something that I forgot to add to my last art PSA, which I'm not to happy about forgetting since this is one of my biggest pet peeves. I'm not saying that adding texture is a bad thing (otherwise I'd be the world's biggest hypocrite). Quite the opposite, actually. Adding a splash of texture can add awesomeness if done correctly.
What I DO have a problem with is texture that is just slapped on certain sections, like putting a photograph of lizard scales over the skin of a dragon without any tweaking that just totally flattens out the area where the texture is.
There are two ways that you can overlay texture.
The first is to overlay it over your entire picture. I've seen this done in a lot of 'horror' pictures where doing this adds a certain g
One time I dreamed I was in a zombie apocalypseMy dad was out of the house when it started and he never came back.One time I dreamed I was in a zombie apocalypse1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Zombies surrounded our house and broke in. My mom had an axe (don't ask why because I don't know) and told my sister and I to run while she fended them off. I know she died because I heard that ringing sound they play in the Walking Dead game when someone dies.
I don't really remember what happened next, but I lost my sister somehow. I was walking aimlessly, and I don't know how far away I was from home. Then I saw a demolished house and I realized that it was the TC house. I had this dream back when they were all together. And it was so ironic because I've always wanted to meet them and out of all the times I could have found the house it was during the zombie apocalypse and the Youtubers were all probably dead.
This is what watching too many playthroughs of the Walking Dead does to you XD

In Spider Encounter, he picks up a block and examines it closely before sitting down.
Conclusion? Bart is a clean freak.

suddenly every freaking chapter they make out at least once
I mean i'm all for reading my otps making out but NOT WHEN THEY'RE DOING IT ALL THE TIME IN THE STORY
it's the equivalent of seeing people at school making out all the time
oh yeah and there's always the "homophobic" onlooker who gives them disgusted looks
are you kidding me I don't care if the couple is straight or gay or whatever if they're making out all the time in public that's pretty gross imo
I've suffered standing in line behind straight couples at amusement parks who can't tell the difference between the public place and the bedroom I MEAN THERE ARE CHILDREN IN THE AREA HELLO KEEP YOUR TONGUES AWAY FROM EACH OTHER THANK YOU
Kisses in public are fine but making out is not something most people want to see (unless it's in porn or something. Then they specifically went searching for that stuff. That's different.)

Sup Guys,Well, Supah found I believe the worst thief I have encountered yet.Sup Guys,1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This person, rather then taking my artworks, stole MY PERSONA, Icee.
The dragon hybrid with blonde hair, headphones, a blue shirt with a fairy on it, I'm sure you all know her.
This person, took my MC skin, my theme, and is saying that this is: Icee Productions, that this is, Icee.
I gave her a chance to credit me for my skins and character, and she did not comply. :/
I'd very much like it if some people could go and CALMLY, tell her to credit me or take down the videos. I don't want death threats, saying she's a b*tch or any of that stuff. I just want to see calm conversing.
Thanks for reading. I hate thieves. >.<

dA turns 13: Teenage Icons There is only a few days left before the contest deadline- please ensure your entry is in before then! Just to clarify "Icon" refers to the mascot, not to the art form!dA turns 13: Teenage Icons2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As you will know by now, today marks deviantART's 13th birthday! Throughout Community Relations, we are celebrating in style with a wonderful array of events, contest and fun all to get you in the celebratory mood- and even better we've thrown in some prizes along the way!
By turning 13, deviantART can now legally use deviantART. It also means that deviantART is officially a teenager, and us oldies know what that comes with, and the young knowing what that is right now. Being a teenager is free and fresh, but can also be angsty and confusing.
The aim of this contest is to use any art form to depict devinatARTs famous Fella and Llama characters as teenagers. Think about what they could be like at the age of 13, what

Actual preview for Chap 17 (mwhahaHAHAHA)Seto's face hovered over the basin of water. Sweat drenched his forehead and several occasional drops distorted the sorcerer's reflection. His brown eyes were tinged with red-orange as he stared intensely into the water. Come on. Just move it. You've done it before, you can do it now! But nothing happened. The water, which had always bended to his will so easily, was now unresponsive. Seto pursed his lips together with frustration and he could feel anger start to bubble in his stomach. Just concentrate harder! He can't have taken away the powers you were born with! The veins on his forehead bulged as he clenched his jaw tightly, imagining an invisible hand holding the water as if it were solid.Actual preview for Chap 17 (mwhahaHAHAHA)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Finally the water reacted, only in a way Seto hadn't expected. Instead of moving, all of the liquid promptly turned into hot, thick steam. Seto blinked in startled confusion and stared at his hands, which were now glowing like fiery embers.
