Group Rules Rules:Group Rules3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We here in the DA Rangers are an official branch of the Risembool Rangers, which began on yahoo and branched off to several different places. These rules apply and were written by the first group, therefore we abide by the same rules.
1: No Flaming:
Please, that’s not The Ranger way.
No Bashing or Flaming Fellow Rangers,
OR Fellow Rangers' Art. That’s a big NO NO.
2: No Fighting:
Fighting never solves anything so please refrain from doing so!
3: No Spamming:
Please don’t spam it makes you sound crazy!
4: We choose what Art is accepted here.
If there's a work of any kind submitted to our Group that's not necessarily allowed or right for our gallery, we will remove it. Please do not take offense! We're just a tad strict here. Also a Non-Vic-Related Artwork may-or-may-not be removed.

My name is Julia, a.k.a Miss Beanieronie in the Toontown universe, I am an active part in a large Toontown community on DeviantART, founded by the very person who started the petition to save our favorite online game.
It's a group of very talented, generous, awesome people, who have been having a few ideas to suggest to the game and just thank all of you making it able to rewrite our digital story.
I'm not asking for publicity or anything, just simply asking for somebody to check out this group, maybe send a small Hello to the founder.
Keep up the great work! We're all very grateful!
A couple of hours later I got a reply;

Posting online is like dancing in a busy streetBefore you share anything online; be it art, photograph, or commentary, you should sit there and just envision this scenario:Posting online is like dancing in a busy street3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"EVERY PERSON ON THE INTERNET EVER IS GOING TO SEE THIS."
And really picture what people who don't know you, and don't care to know you, would say.
Then prepare yourself for it.
Because as terribly unlikely as that particular scenario is; your DA profile, journal, and gallery are still not your private little getaway of the internet for you and your buddies.
And you never know when something you did or said will be featured somewhere with a much bigger (and louder. and meaner.) audience than you're used to.

DeviantART'S 12th Birthday Gameshow: Starting soonDeviantART Birthday Gameshow is starting in just FIFTEEN MINUTES!DeviantART'S 12th Birthday Gameshow: Starting soon2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We're looking for game players to come and join in our deviantART Birthday Event! In just a short while 3wyl and myself are hosting an interpretation of a British game show called Pointless. The idea of the game is that you have to guess the least popular answer to a multiple answers question. You will be awarded points accordingly, those with the most points will win - but you will have used pointless answers to get there!
We'll have pre-judged the least popular and most popular answers by asking a panel of CVs beforehand for their responses. Want an example?
Name a Film Starring Tom Cruise
Okay so Mission Impossible is a really high answer and if you said that one, you'd get lots of points. Which isn't good! If you said Rain Man - you'd possibly be getting less points. But if you said something like Endless Love or Taps, then you'd be hitting on an answer tha

Thomas and John Knoll: the brothers behind the magic
Back in 1987, Thomas Knoll was working on his Ph.D. thesis as part of his studies on image processing at the University of Michigan. He had bought a new Apple Mac Plus to help with the thesis, but was frustrated by the fact the computer wouldn't display greyscale images on the monochrome monitor. This issue wouldn't stop him and so he decided to write his own code in order to be able to see the images in his new computer.
His brother John was coincidentally working for ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) on image processing at the time and discovered Thomas' code during a holiday visit. Clearly impressed by his brother's achievements, both began collaborating on a bigger applic
A compass needs a MagnetA couple of months ago I went to the New York Comic Con with my soon to be twenty four year old nephew. He's a major video game and anime enthusiast while I'm more the science fiction person. While we were there, he was looking at a piece of art to buy. He liked this one poster from the series Attack on Titan but explained to me why he couldn't buy it.A compass needs a Magnet10 months ago in Personal More Like This
The focal point of the art was the girl's chest.
God bless him. He has has the magnet in his compass.
Society has removed the magnet and then expects people to behave morally. Those morals are not given by the idea of it takes a village to raise a child. It takes a moral family a proper father and mother who taught him how to behave about what is right and wrong in the proper Judeo-Christian values my country was founded in, while the world screams for you to have what ever you want without any guard rails.
It's those guard rails that keeps him from looking at what he shouldn't and when he does see it, tells himself no.

Hell, who doesn't like improving?
If you are honestly truly really, after much introspection, writing only for yourself and not particularly interested in critical feedback, I would skip this. There's no point.
Here's the thing: improving depends on having some thick skin. How do you know if you're there? Read on below.

I am so sorry, Bronies... xDActual conversation I had at work today, after telling my boss I'll be away next week, selling art at a convention:I am so sorry, Bronies... xD1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Boss: "So, what kind of convention is it?"
Me: "My Little Pony."
Boss: *LOOKS INCREDIBLY EXCITED/AGITATED/????* "WHAT?! WHO ARE YOU GOING WITH? HAVE YOU BEEN TO ONE OF THESE BEFORE?!"
Me: *Laughing my ass off because I don't understand his reaction AT ALL* "My two friends, see, my one friend's been into ponies since she was a kid, and--"
Boss: *INTERUPTS, STILL HORRIFED-LOOKING* "ONE OF THOSE FRIENDS BETTER BE A BIG, STRONG DUDE. DO YOU KNOW WHO GOES TO THOSE CONVENTIONS? THEY'RE CALLED "BRONIES". FREAKS. SICK FUCKS. YOU ARE GOING TO BE RAPED AND KILLED, AND THEY WILL FIND YOUR BODY IN A DITCH. BE CAREFUL."
He was dead. Fucking. Serious.
I'm sorry, bronies.
It appears you have actually managed to surpass the "furry" community as "most horribly misunderstood fandom, thanks to a few sick fucks".

If you like Kingdom Hearts, do not talk shit about Sonic.
If you like anime, do not talk shit about furries.
"But their fandom is over-rated, and I'm sick of seeing fanart of it!"
...And they, and everyone else, are sick of seeing yours, too.
So instead of sitting around baring your fangs at each other, wouldn't it make more sense to shake hands, and say, "I know what it's like to be hated, I know that feel bro" and be comrades?
...I've felt this way ever since Kingdom Hearts first became popular on here, and the Naruto fans wouldn't shut up about all the KH art on the front page, and the KH fans wouldn't stop whining about how over-popular Naruto was.
There is nothing more hypocritical than to hate on something that is disgustingly over-popular if you are enjoying someth

A New Year's Resolution Suggestion for y'allBut first, mine. I still haven't really nailed it down yet, but I'm thinking it's going to be something in the vein of, don't worry so much about what other people might think of my art, or in other terms, don't censor myself so much for the sake of keeping everyone happy. If I wanna draw dogs, I should just do it, and not think about how people might comment harshly or roll their eyes. And when I see someone crying, "PLEASE STOP DRAWING PONIES!", I'll try to push my guilt aside, and instead remember, deviantArt is for everyone, including myself, and I shouldn't hold myself back from having fun just because some people won't like it. Because on the other side of that coin - some people WILL.A New Year's Resolution Suggestion for y'all10 months ago in Personal More Like This

It is not EVER worth it to commit suicide over the words or bullying of others.
If you take yourself out because of bullies, they will not feel bad, they will not "be sorry", they will have won.

My Dog Died- RIP Whitney 2003-2014On September 6th, our dog Whitney died. She was a beautiful border collie and saver mix. I haven't been able to write about it until today because I do not take death well. She was struggling, and in so much pain... It was hard to see her like that in her last days. I just wish that I could've said goodbye to her, but we were away at comic con. I remember being on the elevator at IKEA's when my mom got the call. I knew then and there that it had happened. Whitney was struggling with arthritis and her liver. My parents took her to the vet, and they gave them medicine to give to her. They told them that there wasn't much they could do, and they didn't think the surgery would help. Only a miracle would save her. After she got off the phone, I went into a state of denial... I could hardly eat after that because I was crying so hard. I miss you, Whitney. I still feel your presence, and it freaks me out not seeing you anymore. It was also nice taking you on walks. You were always so cooperatMy Dog Died- RIP Whitney 2003-20142 months ago in Personal More Like This

1) Spell AND Grammar check.
I know what you're thinking "I never have mistakes etc, etc" or "Ain't nobody have time for that" I'm here to explain that spelling and just simple errors like that TAKE people out of the story faster than no other. Sure we have auto corrects and spell checks already but there's a chance that you may of switched a words for another one. (I being dyslexic happens a lot)
Just simply go through it, I reread mine like five times it seems.
2)Keep your main character in well character.
If your main protagonist goes from being some sissy to complete bad A*s without rhyme or reason then it's very corny and a WTF moment for us the reader. For example if the main person is running from a threa
