You've had the idea, you've built your emotes, you've put them all together in an animated GIF which you upload for the world to enjoy. The comments start coming in; "Sweet", "Cute", Love it", "Why is it so slow?". All well and good, apart from that last one.
So you take a closer look and either:
a) you scratch your head and think "it wasn't that slow when I built it"
b) you think it looks fine but other people are still saying it's slow
So what's the problem? The answer is Stupid Browsers. Simple as that. Our browsers are just rubbish at rendering fast animated GIFs.
An animated GIF file consists of a number of image blocks, each with it's own control block.&

Im sorry for all of you whom cried for her and her family, its terrible.
*Cancer doesnt work like that
-she said she was bald from cancer, no thats chemo and it takes months of treatments and pain to do it. Your weak, sick, its killing your body.
- you cant get cancer surgery, theres surgery to remove tumors but not "cancer surgery"
-6 days to live, a doctor would NEVER tell a patient that. They would say "Days, weeks, months"
-"Twins" that had different birthdays by months, exact same art.
It was the same person, trying to get pitty watches. Sorry everyone.
Its a hoax everyone.
The "twin" is the same person just getting attention from you all. Taking the publicity from her "dead" sibling.
Enjoy being upset, they are playing everyone. Its disgusting.

My gallery is still almost empty and I need more examples for it. That's why I decided to open some free requests.
If you'd like to get one, you should
make a new journal or poll about my requests.
put the link to your journal or poll and your character reference in the comments.
There are 5 6 slots so far. Most likely I'll add some more slots later (or may be not, I just don't want to make a lot of promises to people and be unable to keep them).
Since I'm doing this for free, it is not first come first serve, I will choose by myself which character I'd like to draw.
Please don't ask me whether you can have a request or not. Just follow the instruction and you'll get a chance to have it.

Ponyscape v0.4 Patched!!Hi Everypony!!Ponyscape v0.4 Patched!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The patched version of Ponyscape 0.4 is here!! Currently, the Windows, 64-bit Linux, Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 packages are available! The Linux package was built on Linux Mint 14, but it should work on most up-to-date distributions. On Windows, download the zip file and extract it using 7zip or winrar and run ponyscape.exe. On Linux, download the deb package and install it by running "sudo dpkg -i " or by using a GUI package installer of your choice. On Mac OS X, open the dmg package, drag Ponyscape.app to the Applications folder, and launch Ponyscape.app from your Applications folder. For this patch version, I revamped the Linux package so that everything is now installed in a separate directory from Inkscape and you now run "ponyscape" instead of "inkscape" from a terminal. Additionally I revamped the Mac OS package so that it's now called Ponyscape.app (and I tweaked it a bit so it runs smoother).
You can get the binary packages here (md5's are provided f

Have you compared it to Deviantart new logo?
That's right folks, they're now unequal, not equal or should I put it unfair.
Let's take out the feature that people use to make their pages pop out and put in things they don't even bother because really in artist world, we don't need apps.
All we need is paper, pencil, paint, confidence, and yourself.
However, dA became a different nature of just artist world. It feels as if your page is your crib. We want those bling blings to stand out, right?
The more it stands out, the more homies will join your crew, yah artistic gangsta.
Hmmm... Nice WEBCAM guys... Oops! That's your ID picture lol no more animated pops for non premy! Poor you :C
Sooo.... they decided, it is time to take it out. It's getting old and the long purpose of it is gone.
