Urgent! Need Help With Exposure on YouTube!I need $20....I need it so I can make a $100. Let me explain:Urgent! Need Help With Exposure on YouTube!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently, YouTube made me a partner or something. That means certain videos I upload there will make money for me with ads.
Not as much as Blip, or TGWTG...but that's because I don't have much of a precence on YouTube right now, especially since I got locked out on my old account. I still haven't heard from anyone about that...
Youtube is fun that way...for example, they have no problem hosting my "Top 11 Simpsons Halloween Special" but when I tried to upload my review on "Lindsey Neagle", that earned my a Copyright strike. What does that mean...well it means that for the next 6 months... Yes, 6 Months!...I can't upload any new videos that are over 15 minutes, which excludes a lot of my best new stuff, Most of which I don't want to break up, because they just barely go over 15 minutes.
And to make matters worse...there's a deadline...if you don't make a $100 dollars by the end of each month,

DA Journals and News Combined - And MoreFor the last few weeks, I've stood back and observed since the day DeviantArt Journals and News were combined into one entity. Seems to me that this move may not have been such a good idea.DA Journals and News Combined - And More4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm sure anyone who has kept track of the Journal entries on the front page of DeviantArt has noticed something reoccurring in the last few weeks. In this case, how one user, :icondoitforthelulz:, has demonstrated just how relatively easy it is for one person to practically monopolize the 5 Journals on display in the footer of the DeviantArt main page. Of course, he's been doing this on purpose to make and point and I definitely agreed.
So, what kind of disadvantages are we looking at now that Journals and News have merged?
1. With enough Watchers, just about anyone can abuse the Journal system and easily get one or several of their Journals on the front page of DeviantArt with enough Favs.
2. Finding relevant information for contests, ect. is no longer nearly as feasible, especially as Journals are

Ninja Turtles by lukekeith
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

i know what some of you may think here, "well, my skill level isn't going to win me anything here"
my friend, that is not the case in this event. ALL entries will be have the same amount of chance, the final winner is not based on how well the drawing or writing is done. the winner will be RANDOM. you are asked to do your best because you owe it to yourself for a good piece of work. The final piece will remain your own property, im just trying to get some activities going here. XD
you need to do one of the following to quality as an entry.
1. a drawing of a lamia in any media (traditional, digital, photo-manip, also welcome)
2. a short story involving a lamia. preferably no longer than 1 page.
there are a few versions of the lamia monster, what i am looking for is the one that is top half human, and lower half snake. now most of these are portrayed as female, but if you are up to it, feel free to make a male one.
also regarding the hair, you are free to make it snake hair or norma

Look, at the end of the day, this site provides a service. You can choose to pay for it, or you can choose to not pay for it. It works either way. If you really don't like it, not only should you not pay for it, but don't use it. No one is forcing you to.
It seems like a lot of people seem to think that being a member of this site gives them ownership of it. It doesn't. Be grateful it exists. Be happy that it is (now) profitable. For a long time it wasn't. The people who work on it deserve to make some money - they work hard.
If you don't agree with any of this, I think you're lacking in perspective. There's nothing keeping you here if you don't want to be. I think DA does a great job of listening to a vast community and trying to make changes to please it's members. It can't be incredibly dynamic and flexible to accomodate e

You have to sign up to read the complete 14 pages but thought I'd let you guys know either way ...
The Official comic desc page... (In bahasa indonesian...)
The comic archives... (Also in Indonesian...) first episode:
'Kentang' means literally "Potato." It is also the main girl's name...
Story wise, it's a slice-of-life, light-comedy, coming-of-age comic about a girl who wants to become a chef, despite being relatively inexperienced and armed mainly with her sincere love for food.
"Efforts always have merit, even if sometimes it's not the way you might expect."
It was kind of surprising (and a bit nerve-wracking! ) to see the stream of feedbacks from my own country's readers. Be still, my heart...

Photography Quotes"To photograph people is to violate them, by seeing them as they never see themselves, by having knowledge of them that they can never have; it turns people into objects that can be symbolically possessed."Photography Quotes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
― Susan Sontag, On Photography
"I would never understand photography, the sneaky, murderous taxidermy of it. "
― Lorrie Moore, Anagrams
"There is in fact something obscene and sinister about photography, a desire to imprison, to incorporate, a sexual intensity of pursuit."
― William S. Burroughs
"When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence."
― Ansel Adams
"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved."
― Ansel Adams
"All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person's (or thing's) mortality,

Well, 2011 was super crazy... worked a lot with illustration as an in-house illustrator at Editora Abril, a major brazillian magazine publisher. And left it as well!
It was an insane work schedule, generally working from 10am to 8pm, THEN drawing comic pitches by night till 0am. And restarting 7am till 9am. Before going to work. Sure was stressful. BUUUT then my buddy Kurtis Wiebe and I managed to score a pitch with Image which you by now know as Grim Leaper, and I chose to left my job to work full time on comics.
I'm currently working in Grim Leaper and in an yet unannounced comic with Zuda veterans Johnny Zito and Tony Trov. You'll know more on that very soon.
Talking about Grim Leaper, number 1 is soon out, and the first reviews are starting to pop up. Here are the reviews so far:

like, right now
and by right now I mean that the whole audition process will start on NOV. 20TH (11.59 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME) and end on DEC. 11TH (11.59 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME).
This means that the start date for round one is DEC. 14TH. Round 1 ends on DEC. 17TH, 11.59 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME.
What do you need for an audition entry?
One ref sheet of your character.
We're going to be looking pretty hard at how you put 'em together, though, so don't just dash this shit off. Make it look good, make it readable, make it so that anyone should have a good grasp of how to draw your character proper.
We want to see multiple angles, we want to see color, we want to see why we should think your character is boss enough for FOURPANEL.
To enter, note your finished ref sheet to this account. We will then add it to our favorites. This does not mean you got in. You'll know if
