PayPal users ATTENTIONThis is important, especially if you're underage, registered underage or if you have any issues with PayPalPayPal users ATTENTION1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I recently ran into a problem concerning my PayPal account and it was something I had no idea of and I’m quite sure a lot of people aren’t aware that it is a thing and on the top of that a serious one. I though I’d spread the knowledge before someone has to go through the same stress as I did.
(A detailed explanation of my issue and how I resolved it. What to do if any problem occurs explained later in the post.)
When you create your account you are supposed to read and agree to the terms of agreement. A lot of you probably just skip through it if that but hear me out when I say that PayPal does take the terms of agreement very seriously. The site is about finances after all so naturally they would like to pay attention to the security of the site and its users.
You probably all agree that all kinds of scamming etc. obvious violations are wrong and you

Featuring some really great artists ROUND 2Going through my follow list, I felt like there were just too many under-appreciated artists I miss. So please check these guys out too! : )Featuring some really great artists ROUND 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
I actually find it sickening at how little pageviews this guy has, LOL. Absolutely amazing atmosphere drawings, amazing lighting, backgrounds, perspective, and over-all rendering. Plus lots of dogs! : D
Fresh moe style, wonderful backgrounds.
Soft moe art! Seriously so soft. I don't even see lines, I just see soffffftttt. ////
Probably my favorite pony artist ever. The cging method is so traditional pastel styled, it's just eyecandy to look at. They also do really cute Pokemon art.

Commissions Policy - OPENING 12 JULYCommissions are opening on the 12th of July, 1pm AESTCommissions Policy - OPENING 12 JULY2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will be opening approximately 20 spots (maybe more if many simple projects come up)
First in best dressed. I suggest submitting as soon as the countdown timer goes off if you want a spot, as many people will be doing the same.
The only way to reserve a spot otherwise is to sponsor the upper tiers on my Patreon. You must make at least ONE payment via patreon to claim your spot, so please do not unsubscribe before your first payment has been sent (patreon takes it's payment at the turnover of every new month).
Commission Terms and Conditions:
Commissioning me or purchasing a plush from me means you have read and agreed to these terms and conditions.
Helpful Links for Budding ArtistsI noticed that whenever I'm surfing around the forum pages (something I NEVER used to do on my old account, even though I've been around for 7/8 years now) I always attack people with links of things that might be helpful to them. Stuff that had been tremendously helpful to me in the past (and now too)! Some are tutorials, some are websites where I find references, some are just for pure inspiration.Helpful Links for Budding Artists4 years ago in Personal More Like This

FIGURE WORK AND ANIMALS
http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php An online gesture drawing tool for both people and animals (and insects!). I think out of every link I have, I use this one the most. xD It's especially convenient during the summer when I can't afford to sign up for a figure drawing class. Best part about this tool is that you can say that you only want clothed figures if you're uncomfortable with nudity.

Raindrops Fans are Amazing...I mean...CRAZYI really mean it, you guys... I'm always impressed with how much support my fancomic gets. I still get tons of feedback from it all the time, and daily notes asking for its' update. Sometimes, I get notes from fans who are overly passionate, or maybe not so polite.

It was so unbelievable, I have to tell you.
So a couple of days ago I checked my DA Notes and there was a pile of messages waiting for me. I haven't been able to check DA often as of late due to work and the fact that my Computer has been dying and I've been trying to avoid using it as much as possible until my new Computer arrives. ANYWAY, I was surprised to find a note from my friend, masa-kocha. I opened it, and this is what it said:

HOW TO ENTER
1) Add this journal to your favorites. No need to be a watcher of mine.
2) Choose one photo deviation. The deviation submitted may be a new photograph taken and submitted specifically for this contest or a deviation that you had in your gallery previously. (Entry must be a deviation, not a Stash post or a link to an outside site like Photobucket or flickr. I need to have access to a thumbnail code.)
3) In the deviation description, include a brief (100 words or fewer) vignette of your memory of the time when you took the photo. It can be funny, an explanation of what inspired you to snap the picture, and/or something poignant and important to you about the moment. (Go here for an example.)

Tips: how to enjoy painting long hoursI am not a natural painter. I am a natural sequential artist who is used to doing large amount of images to tell a story.Tips: how to enjoy painting long hours2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to paint the highly detailed paintings I adore looking at, but I tend to want to give up half way before the paintings get anywhere I would say "Wow" to.
I hit a wall for a while, my wall is: I just can't keep myself interested enough to make myself stay on the same piece for a long time!
I couldn't bring myself to spend on a painting that is my own for over 20-30 hours... while others can spend up to 80-100 hours on solid hours. I have no problem doing it for commercial work, or for clients, because the nature of those work hours are short, but when it comes to my own work, I need a break through on my hours of devotion.
Just when I was about to settle on: "Is this a personality trait I can't change? Is this something I have to be born with?"
While I believe that if I have the urge to do it, it's within me. If I adore it, there is a quality in me to d

What is Project S.E.A.?
Project S.E.A. is an idea that leapt, no more like cannonballed, its way into my mind. I figured that perhaps I had finally come up with a grand design to share in deviantArt's community spirit. So here I am in full throe of formulating a three piece suite of an event which I hope everybody will take part in and enjoy.
But what is Project S.E.A.? I hear you cry. Well, if you grant me a minute or two then I shall endeavour to share with you all my eager peeps.
The idea for Project S.E.A. came to me while I was in the middle of self-evaluating my time on deviantArt as a member. I thought that over the past 3 years I have been given support not just through my poetry but also emotionally too with my own private struggles. I have myself supported others with their own work and problems. Then my mind began to think about encouragement and how members on deviantA

Design an Outfit! Contest
Someone once said there was a huge wardrobe in Fenrir's Tower. Much bigger than any ever imagined, with many different- and sometimes eccentric- clothes for men, women, children. There was no purpose in having all those clothes, if not for satisfying his obsession of collecting things.
This contest is about designing a new outfit for my character, Lilith, and Fenrir--the-2nd's character Fenrir! Read about them in these refs and pull out of that huge wardrobe their new clothes!
