Adoptables, Original Species Confusion(What follows is my own, personal opinion and is not to be considered a rule in any way, shape or form.)Adoptables, Original Species Confusion2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Lately many people have asked me an opinion about their new Original Species, or about Original Species in general, so I decided to do a Journal about it. Hopefully it will clear up some things for you.
First of all no Original Species is truly original.
To some, this might come as a surprise because why call something original if it's not? It's not truly original because, like it or not, inspiration has to come from somewhere. The 'magic' about OS is that, if an artist is careful enough, you don't notice the inspiration, you only have a vague tickling in the back of your head that tells you that that is familiar but you can't place it.
Mixing all your inspirations is quite important to avoid one of the most common mistakes in the adoptables world, creating a chimera and treating it like an OS.
Before all of you surge at me, yelling and screamin

The Batman v Superman Trailer Has Been Release
In the wake of yesterday’s...anticlimactic teaser-of-the-teaser trailer debut, the actual first look at Batman v Superman has been released. The trailer does a pretty good job setting up the film’s premise, and gives us some hope for Ben Affleck as Batman — just listen to that classic one-liner at the end.

Minecraft sold to Microsoft - Notch LeavingSo the news this morning was that Notch, creator of the wildly successful Minecraft, not only sold Mojang to Microsoft, but he’s also stepping down from Mojang. Microsoft acquired the company for 2.5 BILLION dollars. You can read his post and what it’ll mean to the future of Mojang here: https://mojang.com/2014/09/yes-were-being-bought-by-microsoft/Minecraft sold to Microsoft - Notch Leaving1 year ago in Personal More Like This
However, that’s only one part of the story. Notch stepping down from Mojang is a little more complicated. He mentioned that he’s realized that he’s becoming a symbol for people, not a person, and as a result he gets drawn into a lot of debate or blamed for things he never said or did. He cited this video as a good example of what his life has become recently:
I watched the This is Phil Fish video on YouTube and started to realize I didn’t have the connection to my fans I thought I had. I’ve become a symbol. I don’t want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I don

Tips on: How to make an original species?I got asked by a few people but I wrote out this response to jasper-chan's ask on my tumblr. since it's all written out I feel like it'd be at least somewhat appreciated to those who are curious of what I keep in mind while making an original speciesTips on: How to make an original species?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
WARNING it's a little messy but if you are confused then feel free to ask me questions I'll do my best to answer properly
In general I’d suggest to think "what physical characteristics should be involved with my species? and how can i make it unique?"
for a species to be a species (especially closed species) there should be at least some distinctive physical trait that they're born with.
imo it’s not a very good species if they can take off what would make them a species. for example, a group of kemonomimis that likes to wear a specific fashion is more of a culture than a species. I wouldn’t add their fashion into their main descrip

The DeviantArt Experience can sometimes quickly become the quintessential example of that most frustrating problem: too much of a good thing.

I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

So lately I've been seeing a ton of adopts go up, all of these pertaining to pokemon from the versions X and Y. These people are trying to sell pokemon they obtained in the game for points, which I know for a fact would be illegal.
I was able to copy one of the comments one of these deviations received before it was hidden, and this is what that comment said:
Excuse me but you cannot sell this pokemon for it is a copyrighted character and you may not sell copyrighted character for any kind of currency including money and/or points.
deviantART does not allow the sale of copyrighted characters or works.
artists can upload fan art as a deviation in their gallery, they may not make fan art available for purchase as a print without violating copyright and tademark protections.

Okay, so maybe not everything. But there's a lot of stuff that I remember learning in middle and high school that turned out to not actually work for me -- or for pretty much anybody -- as a writer. I'm hoping that if I can lay these lies out for you, we cans turn it around and unlearn some of these bad habits. Because, man, nothing says "noob" like practicing some of these frequently-taught faux pas.
Lie #1: Be super duper descriptive!
Wait, wait, I know what you're thinking. Descriptive language is good, right? You want your reader to know what you're talking about, and to be able to see, smell it, hear it, touch it, taste it the way you do in your head. The problem is that, when it comes to description, a little bit goes a long wa

We add artist as "content creators" on the site. This way, when they post, the
images stay part of the permanent album. It allows you to post on the page any images
you would like to add. And by artists I mean fine art, sketching, photography, digital

The artists therefore, usually posts their new images. When
