About complimenting an artistI'm pretty sure many of you have already been over this subject but it has been bothering me a lot lately so I feel like I need to talk about this. I am not trying to upset anyone or to make anyone feel bad about themselves, I just need to give my two cents about this subject. (I also apologize any weird sentences/words in advance, English is not my first language! ;w; )About complimenting an artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I will never be as good as you / Your art is so much better than mine / I will never be as popular/successful as you :/ etc
are not really compliments. Some people might take them as such, but for me at least they are more of an annoyance than a compliment. Why? Because I get the feeling I should feel guilty/pity these people. I feel like I should apologize for being more experienced, even thought I haven't done anything wrong by drawing a nice looking picture or working hard on my art. I understand many people commenting this way may not even realize how their comment seems l

Okay, here's what pisses me offY'know, I get it. I get that younger artists or just other artists in general are gonna pick up bits and pieces of your style, or even unique features you give your characters and species, and that it's not USUALLY intentional. I mean, our brains are neat in that they absorb and store everything we see and bring them up in a subconscious level when we're working on things, and sometimes it brings things up that are really close to what was originally observed, it's not something people can help. I also get that younger artists may do this intentionally, since they're trying to learn how to do things and they want to do them right, so they try and learn from people that they think are doing well, and that given time they will grow into their own style. I don't really mind all this, it doesn't really upset me.Okay, here's what pisses me off7 months ago in Personal More Like This
What does upset me, is when SO MANY people take parts from your style, or your species, little bits, big bits, whatever, and then because it's used so much, p

I LOVE MEDICAL ANOMALIES LIKE WEIRD DISEASES N SHIT TOO THAT WORKS
LIKE there's one disease where damaged tissue regrows itself as bone, and you can't break it to move again because it would grow back as more bone until the skeleton just becomes a prison (it would look like a bone spiderweb look it up)

More contract talk...HOW TO MAKE ONEOk I have talked and read some people's TOS and frankly they freak me out.... So I thought I needed a GENERAL talk about documents and how to set them up.More contract talk...HOW TO MAKE ONE1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Terms of Service:
This document is where you lay out YOUR rights and the PATRONS rights to the product you are delivering. This is Mine. Mine only applies to custom adoptions. If you are doing commissions you need a different one because you often don't own the characters. So here is what you ROUGHLY need to address in a TOS
1. At what point does the work become theirs?
Why? I have this so up till the moment I upload it. I own it.
2.What the patron do/not do with the design?
Why? so they don't do something with it you don't like
3.COMMERCIAL AND PRIVATE USE
you have to do this. no exceptions. who owns what.
4. Anything else you want to talk about? Other section

YOU NEED A CONTRACT IF YOU SELL.
YOU NEED TERMS AND SERVICE AGREEMENTS.
YOU NEED TO KEEP EVERYTHING.
If you sell and you do not keep your notes organized, do not have contracts, do not have agreements. You are going to get fucked over (unless your incredibly experienced and can smell fraud from a mile away). I say this over and over and over and people tell me they don't want to be too "serious" or they don't know what to say. It is your responsibility as a business owner to keep track of everything. Not just because it is good business but so when someone tries to rip you off after work is delivered by asking for a refund from their financial institution you can go.

Congratulations, NyanOwloo, I'll send you your 250 points right now.
P.S. The number selected was truly random, but I didn't realise that dA doesn't list faves according to date or even alphabetical order - it appears to be completely random, too? No matter which way deviantART lists faves, though, please rest assured that the random number generator could have picked any of you as the winner. If you're wondering, the max number I put into the random number generator was correct at the time that I did it, I think some people may have faved this journal after the deadline time, which is why the fave number is now higher!!
I will definitely be running more of these in the future, and contests too, so that it's not always just a case of blind luck, but skill, humour, etc - so everyone's got a chance. I realise that there were a lot of participants in this

Furries in a Blender, aka Emoticon, has been retired.
I'm sure many of you have heard, since art has been booming of the beloved rainbow raver.
He will be missed since he's been an active alias for such a long time. This was totally unexpected since an EP was uploaded about 2 months ago.
But fear not!
He will have a replacement, Rotteen.
Rotteen will produce more than just happy hardcore, though. She will be producing Happy Hardcore, Gabber, Speedcore, Hands Up, Breakcore, and Fusion type music.
She now has a folder in the group gallery! It's currently empty. Can't wait to see some of you draw her.
Listen to her new album! -->http://lapfoxtrax.com/album/ancient-artifact-arg-s-ccciii
So let's give a warm welcome to her
WELCOME TO THE LAPFOX FAMILY, ROTTEEN!
Admit it, She's beautiful.
