As Halloween approaches, what better way to celebrate the season when the spectral
boundaries of the Kingdom of the Spirits of the Dead touch briefly with the mystical
edges of the Domain of We the Living than to invoke the battered and hellishly bedeviled
soul of Edgar Allan Poe to guide us in communication between (his) ghostly and (our)
ghastly planes of existence.
Poe invented the “detective” story and was an early father of “sci-fi”, and he was also an
extraordinary poet, but he is best known for his Gothic tales of mystery and abject horror –
nearly all of them anchored in the apprehension of an impending cruel and unnatural death.

Seems I'm the kind of pony everypony should know.Twice in the past week I've had someone ask me about what sort of voodoo magic I used to become popular on Deviantart. So fine, I will tell you my exact strategy for this. Nevermind that I am not popular.Seems I'm the kind of pony everypony should know.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Step one: Figure out what is important in life.
For example, in the important column I have things like "my job" and "my family". In the unimportant column I have "how popular I am on deviantart".
Seriously. The number of fucks I give about pageviews is so low that I have them turned off. It's under settings somewhere. I forget exactly because I turned them off the moment they announced that as an option and never turned them back on. As such I have absolutely no idea how many pageviews or watchers I have. I cannot see them, for myself or anyone.
Note that this is not an invitation for you to tell me how many pageviews or watchers I have. I DON'T CARE.
Step two: Make art. And try to make good things.
I don't post much unfinished stuff to my main gallery and when I do I move

good news, everyone XDyesh, I has some "SPIKE" updates..good news, everyone XD3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to tell you that I've finally finished planning pretty much the rest of the story! From the mid part and onwards to the ending. I wrote 7 pages of summary yesterday, and today I've just written 4 pages of a new chapter!
I know these news must torment some of you, since I don't post more chapters here.. And I'm really sorry.. BUT - this means I will be finishing "SPIKE" faster than I'd first expected! I'm hoping I'll have the whole thing done and edited by the summer, 2012, and then I'll send it to some publishers!
I kind of want to send it to some English-speaking publishers now, or soon, like, send off a few chapters and hear what they think. Because translating it to Norwegian just...it... argh, it's difficult because I can't "hear" my characters speaking Norwegian so writing them in Norwegian just doesn't feel right at all...
Do you have any suggestions for good publishers I could send some chapters to? And what makes you s
FAQ answered!Hey everyone! Thanks for asking all your questions, I've finally answered them here:FAQ answered!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Q: How long did it take you to get to your current standard of artwork?
A: About 4 years. Although in my opinion, it's not time that matters - it's attitude. With the right attitude to your art you can improve and reach a higher standard faster. It's all about the mind.
Q: How old were you when you started drawing/making art?
A: Well, I've been drawing all my life, but I only started taking it seriously when I was about 14.
Q: How long does it take for you to draw a full picture?
A: Ahh, that's a really tough one for me to answer. ^^ ;; I tend to go off and come back to drawings, and I work slower when I'm not happy with the picture. At a rough guess I would say about 5+ hours for a full painted digital piece such as this one. Traditional art varies more because I tend to do that at college as well. I've never actually timed myself

Internet TimeWe had the Oscars recently and as usual it wasn't without problems. One of the controversies was Chris Rock's biting commentary about doing voice work for animated films, which was unfortunately insulting to the many hard working (yet perpetually unknown) talents who produce about 90% of all voice work in the animated medium. Chris Rock's joke was funny for his circle of friends and the aging academy, but to younger artists and professionals it was very disrespectful. Voice actress Tara Strong took particular issue with Rock's comment and as we speak his twitter account is no doubt being flooded with angry hate messages and likely racism too... which is very unfortunate. http://www.examiner.com/african-american-entertainment-in-national/tara-strong-attacks-chris-rock-over-oscar-2012-animation-comments-quotesInternet Time3 years ago in Personal More Like This

How did you first discover deviantART?
I first discovered deviantART because of a web design class I took with my sister and a friend. Our teacher wanted us to use stock for mock pages and we ended up finding dA. My sister and friend joined dA and I just kinda watched them. I wasn't much of an online type back then. I managed my sister's page when she made her side portfolio account and started scanning in her older works. So when I took over AssClownFish, I kinda already knew what I was doing.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
I just kinda wanted to blow time when I was in college. I just started posting stuff, to see how long it'd take before I got banned for simply being me. Turns out I'm not ban worthy yet .

I've almost been on this site for 10 years! In December it will have been 10. The only reason I started using my account was because my friend AmandaTurnage started using hers, and I wanted to be cool too, although I'd browsed here before that. The word "deviant" kinda turned me off initially (thought process "hey no I'm not deviant"), but now the word has lost nearly all of its original meaning, haha.
Without deviantArt I'm not sure I'd be where I am today, with just enough internet-cred to make friends with all the cool artists and get enough money out of my hand and to continue to put food in my mouth... but I've gone from idly doodling my characters (who got to go in The Meek 4 years later) and drawing reptiles/ dreaming of being an independent artist, to doing Avatar fanart, making tutorials and finally doing paid art for soulless corporations. I've circled back around now though and am spending my time again drawing my characters and planning comics, and doing meani

Last March, I proclaimed "what the hell, I'm going to write a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fanfic." I took those words, and posted them on the Internet for thousands to read, thousands to judge me by, and even left the door open for thousands to potentially drop a comment about how sour a turn my life must've taken to have consciously confessed to the Internet, with my real first and last name adorning the top of my dA page, that I actually had aspirations and ambitions to writing fanfiction for My Little Pony. Now whenever a future employer does a background check on me, they will learn that I was so moved by a show made for little girls that for the first time in my life I wanted to write fanfiction for it. &

[NEW UPDATE]Methods of payment other than Paypal??[New update][NEW UPDATE]Methods of payment other than Paypal??1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I have been made aware of a method to prevent charge back on paypal http ://viralremix.deviantart.com/journal/A-probable-solution-to-commission-chargebacks-444749482
Simply put it's to ship out a physical print to the commissioner so that it falls under paypal's seller protection. Which is great if you want to go with that method but for me is impossible. Prints cost a dollar or 2, and then a photo mailer is usually 3.50, and shipping a 8.5x11 sized envelope starts at 9 dollars in Canada. I can't eat the cost of this, and I'm not sure any commissioner really wants to eat this cost, especially when 9 dollars is starting, and can get up to 20-30 dollars if u do not live in North America. So all in all its not the best in my situation. If it works for you that's fantastic.
There is basically nothing else you can do to protect yourself when a payment is coming from a credit card. The card holder can always file for fraud and they will always win. My only solution to
