dALinkSystem is a Group dedicated towards increasing artists exposure by helping others and themselves through a simple and effective "Linking" system.
"Link another artists submission in your artist's comment box. It helps everyone's exposure and finds undiscovered art."
dALinkSystem was originated by :iconthefulkrum: in May of 2009. And he's running this excellent group together with :iconechostar08:
What began with a few "Linkers" has grown into a large "Linkers Community" of caring deviants,
who utilize The Link System to help increase their exposure while helping others.
GOALS of The Link System:
1. increase self-exposure
2. increase a fellow Deviant's e

Alright. As many of your know, due to ridiculous new policies regarding digital income in the US designed to punish self-employment efforts, I apparently owe the Govment TWICE AS MUCH AS I SAVED UP FOR. $8000. YAY!
Luckily, I've acquired a sort of big (and really boring) graphics design contract. I'm also doing commissions in between working on that!! But honestly, contributions to this fund are what are keeping me alive right now… And I'm super thankful to all of you. Really. I hate to do this. I really, REALY hate it. It makes me feel just… all over bad… But thank you. I would not survive without the support of my friends here. /actually crying lately.
So yeah… that's my plight… I've lost all my savings instantly and am trying cover the difference. But even then, I've hit rock bottom and can't even pay any bills next month. String is also taking efforts to help us out. It sucks that our fucking cat

1. Sweeney Todd is my favorite play. I first saw it when I was 8. I assisted my dad in building the sets for it.
2. Nothing will kill Disneyland for me. My dad would take me there every single year, and like clockwork we always did the pirates of the carribean ride and the haunted mansion first. Then hit the rest of the park afterwards.
3. I went to college multiple times. The first time was art, but the second time I switched majors and careers three times before I went back to art. Those three times were Religious Studies, Psychology and... Astronomy. While all three subjects are incredibly fascinating when I take them on my own terms, I've found that the overwhelming information you need to learn in order to be competent in the field is.. kind of boring. Particularly Astronomy, my first pr

Exploring Art 42: Back on the wagonHey guys.Exploring Art 42: Back on the wagon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So... I've had a LOT of messages for weeks now asking about one thing. And it's something that I don't feel super confident for a few reasons. Everyone asks me "How did you get back into art after your depression/anxiety/panic attack/illness/etc. etc?" The question comes in a wide variety of forms, but usually it's someone saying "Help me. I still love art and I want to keep doing it, but I'm unwell and so I can't."
The reason why I hesitate to reply about this, and haven't really talked about it, is because there are so many factors that go into depression, anxiety, and all the other mental disorders, that I feel there is no generic one answer to rule them all. What works for me, may not work for someone else, because what's blocking me, may not be what's blocking them. I don't want to give bad advice or suggestions (which is why I try to limit my advice to things that I have a solid foundation on, rather then give bad information.).
But, that said... I think these days I am

If you noticed it being sold by ANYONE else, please do not buy that. That is theft. I spent this morning taking down a site offering the crap fairy for sale and hopefully I got it all taken care of, but this is by far the fastest my work has ever been stolen and put up for sale before. It's frustrating.
I sell my work here, on facebook, on tumblr, at conventions coupled with my darling Sarah's work. I have an etsy shop and if I have interest I will post their again but I will always link you back here on THIS site. If you are unsure about a site that's selling my work, message me and I will clarify if it is fr some reason legit, or not.
Today has been a really hard day for me on the art theft front. Between recasters flinging insults yet again, and saying their theft is legal and 'nya
Exploring Art 34: Finding Style.One of the hardest things about being an artist is growing up, learning, and always being told 'find your unique style'. Nearly everyone I know has flailed about that, struggling to find something that brands them as uniquely them, makes their art identifiable in a mass of other artist's work. Somehow, I stumbled upon my own style, and since then I've had a lot of people ask me HOW I ended up with this style that's all my own. I never really sat down and thought about it until Sarah and I started working together. Then the realities of our styles hit home and I began to realize that what it takes to make your own style, is actually... what NOT to do.Exploring Art 34: Finding Style.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've made a lot of these mistakes in the past, and I'm sure I'll make the same mistakes in the future. But let me talk about them now and maybe together we can avoid them!
The very, very first and most common mistake in looking for a style is assuming that a lack of knowledge, or a consistant mistake made.... is a mark of style. This is th

"The widget also caused security issues where deviants were unintentionally embedding URLs flagged by browsers as malicious — causing some pages of DeviantArt to be inaccessible."
This does makes sense if you think about it however I want the webcams back just as much as you do, so here's a suggestion that will make everyone happy:
Bring back the webcams
Have it like our DeviantArt uploads where the file has to be uploaded directly from our computer rather then pasted from another website. This means that if users want to use an image from another website, they would have to download it onto their computer and everyone has internet security these days so if the image has any problems their computers will block it. I think this would work out for everyone

Slenderman AttackTwo girls in Wisconsin have been arrested for stabbing a classmate, apparently with the intention of becoming minions of the Slenderman. They were caught walking near a local highway, en route to Wisconsin’s Nicolet National Forest, where they believe the fictitious character lives.Slenderman Attack1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The victim, who was stabbed 19 times, is making a recovery.
All the girls involved are around 12 years old.
That’s all terrible, but what actually irks me more is that a spokesman for the Slenderman creator, and administrator for the website where most fiction revolving around the character is posted, has said "We are not teaching children to believe in a fictional monster, nor are we teaching them to be violent."
I think it’s pretty bad that a person who comes up with a concept has to be afraid of the reaction to how other people use it. Especially children. They’re random, dangerous little buggers.
Think back to your own childhood. What was the stupidest thing you did, and why?

A Tribute to Hans Ruedi GigerA Tribute to Hans Ruedi Giger2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft

When you're young, your teenage years can't come soon enough. Thirteen was fun, but with a whole year as a teenager under your belt, you start to get perspective on what it means to grow up. You're not there yet, but the path ahead is clear and inspiring.

Euh. It appears like I've fixed my computer. I don't know this for sure as long I haven't continued my usual routine, of course, but it's a problem fixed for the moment. Besides that, today I finally received my new modem, as the last one didn't even power on anymore, so consider my internet to be also fixed.
Anyway, my main concern was the loss of recent work, but I've grabbed everything there was left to grab, so if my computer changes its mind, at least I don't have to cry more tears than is legally permitted in my country.
Thank you, very few people who actually read my last announcement, for waiting.
Also, I've contacted all my voiceactors for Ed, Edd n Eddy Highschool, and while the amount of response has been acceptable, two of my Eds stayed unresponsive till this date. I basically have no Ed and Eddy anymore.
