Some art/webcomic adviceI got this really thoughtful question on my tumblr a week or two ago in regards to art/webcomics:More Like This
"Hello K-bo, I Have been aspiring to be a webcomic artist much like yourself for a long time. Viewing your artwork and your achievements inspire me to reach out for my dreams. I wasn't able to see you at Fan Expo this year so I wasn't able to ask you this in person. I feel like I'm at a point where I'm comfortable enough with my art and style to start a webcomic... but I have no idea where to start... Do you have any advice? Thank you!"
I wanted to share my answer with you guys since it might be relevant to your interests. I hope at least some of it is useful to you. Here goes...

Why artists get so pissed off --"Why do you artists always get so pissed off when someone uses your artwork? You should take it as a compliment!"More Like This
"You should take it as a Compliment --"
A compliment would be admiring an artist's work where they post it, and if you really want to use it that badly, complimenting them would be you having enough respect for them to ask first.
Most of us don't get mad because you use it, it's because you use it without asking or pretend you didn't know who/where it came from when there's a link to where you can find the original artist on the image.
Taking someone's car to crash it in a derby isn't a compliment to them any more than taking someone's art to wreck it or claim it is a compliment. More so without asking.

Pokemon X and Y - The shiny fishing methodHey guys!More Like This
So, some of you may be wondering why if all sudden everyone is finding shiny fish pokemon but don't tell you how. Well, here you go.
Recently a new way of finding shinies easily and fast was discovered. To be said right from the start, this only works with Pokémon that you can fish for in X and Y.
The method started to circulate yesterday due to the NPC that hands you the Super Rod saying:
"This is just a rumor, but word is that you can catch some rare Pokemon through consecutive fishing!"
It is very likely the rare Pokémon he is talking about are in fact shiny Pokémon. The method below has been discovered and tested by many. I myself have tried it and obtained shiny Relicanth, Dragalge and Poliwhirl with it, two of my friends got shiny Seadras and my boyfriend got shiny Clauncher.
What to do:
- Find a Pokémon with Suction Cups or Sticky Hold for their ability. In gen 6, Octillery and Inkay are easily obtainable Pokémon that can have Suction Cups. Gulpin and Tru

Best video resources for digital artistsLearning the theory without any practice is incredibly pointless when it comes to art. No book, no lecture and no video will ever teach you how to paint if you won't find the time for creating something yourself.More Like This
On the other hand, doing everything alone and without any instructions is the longest and hardest way of achieving anything. What's worse it doesn't guarantee you success.
Through the last couple of years I've been painting, I've learned that the best way for me to learn to paint is to copy techniques of people who know what they're doing. There's no better way doing it than watching videos with commentaries. That's why today I thought I'd share with you some great lectures, tutorials and demos I've found on youtube.

I'm not a teacher, or an expert guys. I am just some random chick who likes to draw a lot and who practices drawing a lot. I don't think I would be very good at teaching or explaining. I cannot give out information like a teacher would. On paws or anatomy. I am no expert. However, I do give advice though, and my advice is usually the same.
If you want to draw a certain animal, research the animal. Watch documentaries, look up anatomy sketches, and photographs that inspire you. Even inspiring art, something that puts you in the mindset and gives you understanding of the animal. Research the animal inside and out to get the full understanding of it's anatomy, movements, attitude, weight, expressions, body language, markings, proportions, everything. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Learn it all. And then sketch and sketch an

Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial article of PE week!
well, you know, there is this youtube channel where there's lots of videos regaring tips, tricks and general advice for artists, and it is the best I've seen of the kind. But sadly, it is only in portuguese - hence why cinyu came up with the great idea of getting me to translate one of their videos!
I decided to pick up this one regarding scanning and adjusting images on photoshop, because that is one of the most basic, yet worst parts for many traditional artists. This tutorial is mostly for scanning black and white works, so it'll be more useful if you're working on manga/comic pages or inked art, but I hope it'll give you some ideas and help out in general on how scanning works.
I'll be translating the most important parts of the video, along with screenshots. Let's get started!

"Will you be my friend?" is one those questions I get the most.
It's also one the questions I have to answer with a negative answer the most, because I don't like lying to people.
Like I've told in some of my earlier journals, my life didn't overflow with friendship nor popularity when I was younger. It was quite the contrary. I wasn't anything near popular, to the point that most people didn't even want to have anything to do with me. As the kid that got bullied, the few that dared to get close to me, more or less put their social status in the group at stake by even talking to me. And as a result, I guess I valued their friendship a lot. After all; I knew what they risked.
Coming from that sort of situation, friendship has always been a very important but at the same time mysterious matter to me. Something not be

What happened is a large case fraud in which apparently one user (under multiple names) scammed several members of DeviantArt community. Leaving some people as much as $3000 in debt!!! Money they, most likely, never see back.
Even though the user is banned by DeviantArt now, there's no reason why it won't happen again.
After all, the problem is caused by a loophole in PayPal's rules. So basically everybody that's using PayPal for its business (and that's a lot of us) is at risk.
People doing commissions
People selling adoptables

Hello Lovely people,

Pixlett / ToxicMutagen (who deactivated their accounts today) scammed more than 3,000 USD from more than 20 artists by filling chargebacks just after a while from paying for adopts or commissions. And apparently, they can do the same with points too.

Recently I have been thinking about developing a game or app called (at least for now) Pixel potions. Pixel potions is a game where you own a potion shop. You must buy ingredients and mix them at will to try and discover new potion types, then sell them for money to customers to buy more decorations and ingredients. There will be quests you have to complete to get rewards and decorations. It may be a FTP (free to play) game. I have recently started to gather artists, coders, basically anyone who wants to help together to start working on it. We need more people! Anyone can help, so comment if you want anything to do with the game!

We all know Fella and dA wouldn't be the same without him anymore.
But did you ever wonder who he really is? Where does he come from? Why is he alone?
He is always at our side, lurking here and there, making your dA experience a little brighter and introducing you to new things all the time.
Your mission is to show us the world of Fella.
How does he live? Does he have pets? Is he the only one or are there other 'creatures' like him? Does he come from a distant planet? Is he the result of an experiment?
What does he eat? Or maybe he doesn't need to eat at all?
What is he doing in his freetime? Does he like to cook or read a good book? Or is he more of an adventurer, exploring the world outside?
Below you can see a few artworks, that already show Fella working for dA or in random situations. Maybe these inspire you to come up with other details of his life.

have you ever had that happen to you? You drew a commission of a stolen character or had your character stolen and drawn by others as a commission? Whether it's artwork or crafts (sculpts, fursuits etc etc)
My Christmas TraditionIt's that time of year againMore Like This
And as always it's my tradition to share my Christmas poem I made many moons ago.
"T'was the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Everyone felt shitty
Even the mouse...
With Mum at the Whorehouse
And Dad smoking grass
I'd just settled down
For a nice piece of ass
When all of a sudden
I heard such a clatter
I sprang from my hoe
To see what was the matter
When out on the lawn
I saw a huge prick
I knew instantly
It must be Saint Nick
He came down the Chimney
Like a Bat out of hell
I knew right away
The fucker had fell
He filled all our stockings
With pretzels and Beer
And a big rubber Dick
For my brother, The Queer.
He rose up the Chimney
With a thunderous fart
Blew the Chimney apart!
He cursed and he swore
As he flew out of sight
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!"
Merry Christmas, guys!

I thought I'd do something different for a change.
As some of you may or may not know, I have a gaming let's play channel called Mushy Plays. (I will link it at the bottom of the journal)
and soon I will be making a series on Escape Goat 2. As well as doing a RACE of escape Goat between me and Deni, AGDQ-style.
During the series of Escape Goat 2, I will be giving away a copy of Escape Goat 1 at random.
All you need to go is once I post the first episode of Escape Goat 2 is leave a comment on the video.
During the second episode I will announce the winner of the game.
Again once the FIRST episode of Escape Goat 2 is uploaded which will be in a couple of weeks, comment on the video if you want the game and I will pick out a name at random.
And here is my channel.
Obligatory Journal UpdateSo I have disappeared over the Holidays and my absence is going to be extended until next week Tues-Wed. I've been at my ancient dinosaurs place (aka parents, Im rude Im sorry, they find it funny when I say that... they're not that old even, still in their 40s, ha!) and with that being said, computer use for work has been limited and my art block is getting the best of me (Art block is a crappy disease, I tell ya! Worse when you're burn out too).More Like This
I was supposed to be leaving just two-three days after New Years and not having the funds at the time to travel, it got post-poned.
I hope to be streaming with Mush next week too and work on those headshots! Sorry guys! If you want to attend the stream and see the progress being made there you're more than welcome to join.
On a side note...
Thank you everyone for the sweet Birthday wishes on the 24th last month and the best wishes! I hope everyone had a nice Christmas, had nice foods and stuffs! Have a belated Ru

After 2 months being sick, I'm getting sicker.
I have been signed off work for a further two months and I need to go for an Endoscopy in a months' time. Not looking forward to this at all.
I'm just getting sick and tired of this what-ever-it-is illness and just want to go back to my normal day-to-day life.
So yeah. What a shit way to start 2015.
3 days in and I can't wait for this year to be over.

My plans for 2015 have already fallen through so make the most of what you have.
Will probably do a music stream later, dunno yet.

Also I wanna apologize for the journal I posted that announced the contest in the beginning. In the journal it was originally going to ask to draw a dragon with one element. However, I accidentally wrote that you are allowed to add more then one element. This mistake made several of the participants confused and re-draw their entries. For that I truly apologize for not reading it properly. That was a mistake in my par
daddy it hurtsMy name is ChrisMore Like This
I am three,
My eyes are swollen
I cannot see,
I must be stupid
I must be bad,
What else could have made
My daddy so mad?
I wish I were better
I wish I weren't ugly,
Then maybe my mommy
Would still want to hug me.
I cant do a wrong
I cant speak at all
Or else I'm locked up All day long.
When I'm awake I'm all alone
The house is dark
My folks aren't home
When my mommy does come home
I'll try and be nice,
So maybe ill just get
One whipping tonight.
I just heard a car
My daddy is back
From Charlies bar
I hear him curse
My name is called
I press myself
Against the wall
I try to hide
From his evil eyes
I'm so afraid now
I'm starting to cry
He finds me weeping
Calls me ugly words,
He says its my fault
He suffers at work
He slaps and hits me
And yells at me more,
I finally get free
And run to the door
Hes already locked it
And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me
Against the hard wall
I fall to the floor
With my bones nearly broken,
And my daddy continues

This Retard Is Killing Me!That-Spotted-Toxijen is proudly declaring that she steals art from Toxijen and refuses to leave DeviantArt. She's openly encouraging hate comments and, basically, telling anyone who calls her out that they can suck it for all she cares cause she ain't leaving…More Like This
She's also claiming to be 19 when she's actually 15. Does she think it'll justify her behavior? I honestly don't know how she plans to get away with what she's doing, all I know is that she's only here to test how many people she can offend without getting caught. I'm not sure if she thinks she's untouchable? Or if she has a legitimate mental illness, or what…
I'm posting this to spread awareness of her existence and to encourage my +watchers to please report her so she realizes that her actions have consequences.
Thank you for reading and for taking action if you so choose.

Possible reasons for more new PokemonRead entire article here: http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/163935/why-are-there-only-69-pokemon-in-generation-6More Like This
1)Lowest number of Pokemon ever released in a generation.
2)Kalos has had wars with "nearby regions". If you've looked into lore on Kalos, even ingame, you'll find a lot of evidence about this.
3) A backpacker in a hotel who is from another region, and says "You'll see it soon" or something like that.
4) In the mansion on route 7 (forgot the name), in the garden in the back, from an overhead view, three of the hedge areas look like Pokemon (vaguely), but one is un-identifiable (new Pokemon?)
5)There is an UNUSED station in Couriway town, possibly to travel to and from Kalos and this other region.
6) There are parts of the power plant that are 100% inaccessible.
