Pressure Sensitivity in Paint Tool SAIWith this most recent edit, I put this journal under Art News -> Resources, for easier access!Pressure Sensitivity in Paint Tool SAI5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Okay guys, I know this is super popular post for this issue. I am just a person who owns a tablet. I don't know how to fix this problem for any tablet other than the ones mentioned. PLEASE read the ENTIRE post before posting a question or asking for help. If you have a type of tablet that I've reported doesn't work with this method, please don't try to do it and then post that it doesn't work. I also now own a Mac, and SAI doesn't have sense of pressure sensitivity with Macs at all, nor will they ever, because the person who made the program hates everything. If someone can make a Mac version, I'll post the link all over everything ever and love you always. o:
But I do use a PC at work, running Windows Vista and using a Bamboo Touch. I don't use SAI, strictly Adobe Flash, but when my tablet malfunctio

Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!
What is a Base?
Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that

If the icons look small when you initially replace the icon, click a blank space on your desktop and scroll with the mouse wheel. It will make the icons bigger.

Simple Design Contest- Judging!Right so I was pretty inspired by silly-boat's contest in how they used minimalistic colourations (black and white) as the subject. I tend to have some pretty somewhat complicated/complex designs so hey maybe it'll be pretty cool to have a simple design contest.Simple Design Contest- Judging!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rules are very simple: The character/creature must be completely monotone (gradients accepted) save for a single off colour (preferably a neon one or something that stands out) that can be used in only ONE area. (except for eyes)
For example say I have a wolf. That wolf is black with white socks and a stomach and has red eyes however the off colour could be two simple dashes below its eye but that colour can't be used anywhere else on the creature. Pretty simple huh?
-Only monotone colours can be used, save for that single off colour [Monotone pertaining to black, white, grey gradients]

A public service announcementDuring the years of the George W. Bush administration a new modus operandi was forged for the GOP through both actions and (even on a couple of occasions) direct statements: "Facts are irrelevant." Since the 2008 election many of the loudest voices in the the GOP (and their media cheerleaders) have pursued that approach with gusto. Perhaps their greatest monument to that practice has been in characterizing the Affordable Care Act ("ACA" aka "Obamacare"). The result has been a confused citizenry that is uncertain whether lies, repeated after being dis-proven, must somehow be true. That can be seen in many of the recent man on the street interviews and polls that have gone viral – perhaps the most telling among them are the ones asking people the ignorance-revealing question if they like "the Affordable Care Act" better than "Obamacare".A public service announcement1 year ago in Personal More Like This

How to suggest a Daily DeviationHello!How to suggest a Daily Deviation2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
According to one of our polls at Traditionalists, there are many people who don't know how to suggest a Daily Deviation - too many, really. In this article you'll learn all about suggesting DDs: it'll be focused on Traditional Art category, but the general rules are the same for all the categories on dA.
So you've just encountered an outstanding work - or had one for ages in your favourites - and you'd like it so much to be seen by everyone on dA. Before you suggest anything, you need to check if its author had a DD within past 6 months, as one deviant can have only 1 DD per 180 days. How? Add "dds" to their profile address, so:
username.deviantart.com would turn into username.deviantart.com/dds
You may also reach that page by clicking "browse" in deviant's gallery (top left, between "feat
Nyotalia Human NamesA few people asked, so here you go! Unfortunately, there really aren't any genuine names that Himaruya gave them, so I'm just listing the possibilities.Nyotalia Human Names3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Italy: An unofficial name Himaruya suggested was Alice (pronounced Ah-LEE-che). Itako is her given nickname. While the Western fandom sometimes calls her Felicia or Felice, the name given by the Japanese fandom that Himaruya approved is Daisy Vargas. Although, sometimes Daisy is referred to her as her middle name, with Feliciana being her first.
Germany: An unofficial name Himaruya suggested was Monica, or Monika as the Germany variant. Doiku and Dokuko are nicknames that refer to female Germany, meant to be a pun for the Japanese word for Germany, Doitsu. She is also sometimes referred to as Nyoitsu. Also in both the Japanese and Western fandoms her given name is typically Louise or Luise.
Japan: Fanon name is Honda Sakura, though it i

The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.

The deviantART #HolidayCardProject is back for its 8th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In 2013 alone, the Project received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for deviantART volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in a card will
