Watch this cartoon!Seriously. This is the cutest, sweetest story of school boy crush I have ever seen. So adorable I cried all the tears! It's four minutes, so watch it and then watch it again!
LivestreamsI've got a little series of archived Livestreams I started over the last week where I'm inking the sketch I drew last December of Ghoulia Yelps on her scooter. There are four so far, with more to come. Some are over an hour, some are like twenty minutes. I only have a free account, so they will be available for 30 days after original posting before they go bye-bye.
I figured I'd mention it in case there are some voyeurs out there.
**Must have a Livestream account to view!**
Or look me up under the user name Bloody William.
Image Removed by DeviantArtWell, DeviantArt has deemed it necessary to take down one of my images. My pic "Daria's Rear" was my rendition of a painting by Jane Lane in the fan fiction story "The Picture of Daria's Rear."
"The administrator who deleted your deviation added the following:
A member of staff has reviewed a report concerning this deviation and has determined that the character(s) depicted in a nude, erotic or sexually compromising situation are established as being under the age of 18 in their original context."
First of all, the fan fiction story this is based on (if memory serves) takes place during the summer in between high school graduation and entering college. This would make Daria 18 years old.
Secondly, this was absolutely an artistic nude. No naughty bits are showing, with the exception of some butt crack. Daria is on her belly reading a book with the typical Daria resting bitch face. I really do not see anything sexy or suggestive about it, other than she happ
ATTENTION: Voluntary Art Take DownPEOPLE OF MARS!
I wanted to give y'all a heads up that I will be removing some things from my gallery. A request went out on the Paperpusher Message Board (where Daria fans congregate) from Daria fan fiction author Roentgen to please remove all derivative works of his story "The Hallowed Halls of Fielding." It seems Roentgen's Daria fan fiction story "HHoF" is insanely popular and he is attempting to take out all references to Daria and make it a 100% original work so that he can publish it. Like, into a for really real book. The thing about that is, if there are derivative works around, potential publishers MAY have an issue with copyright, and that it could POSSIBLY give the appearance that Roentgen plagiarized his story from the fan works, both fan fiction stories of "HHoF" and also fan art.
Which is, unfortunately, how this effects me and my gallery. Fans of "HHoF" have approached me several times to draw their "HHoF" OCs, usually wearing the school uniform from the series, t
Ad blockerI have several ad blockers on my PCs. In recent weeks, I started to get an invasive "we know you're not here for the ads" pop up from DeviantArt pretty much begging to be put on my ad blocker whitelist. Yes, I understand that the ads help to support the site, a site that I quite like, but...
DeviantArt is the reason I have several layers of ad blockers IN THE FIRST PLACE. Not long after I joined in 2011, my PCs, both my laptop AND my desktop got the worst virus I had ever encountered in my life. I tried to figure out where I had gotten it because I don't really go around to "questionable" sites, except once in a great while on my laptop (truth be told usually by mistake looking for reference photos), but absolutely never on my fancy desktop PC that I use for art and has my important personal files. Well, the only thing to help either system was a full factory restore, and after that was done, by sheer coincidence, other DeviantArt members were talking about the same horrific computer v
It is time...Well, this is way past due. I apologize for that. This covers several years' worth of actions which some may find questionable, but at the time they honestly seemed best. Hopefully, people will read through to the end and see where I'm coming from. Bear with me; this is going to get long.
Here's the deal: I am of the female persuasion. I, williamthebloody or BloodyWilliam, whichever handle by which you know me, am in fact a lady with lady parts. Dun-dun-DUN! I also used to be married. Double dun-dun-DUN! Many people whose acquaintance or even friendship I have been lucky enough to make over the years may be questioning why I would perpetrate such a ruse, re: pass myself off as a dude. To get the full picture, a flashback is in order.
Let's go back in time to… 2002? I think that's right. Waaaaaaay back then, a big thing when using a chat room was the question “asl?” from other users. In case you are too young to know, this stands for “age, sex, location” me

[RAFFLE 4000 points or $40]Chit Chat! Updates!!!Hi ya'll!
It's been forever since I have written here, but I figured I would update ya'll on my life.
I recently got a new job, it's still new but it will help me greatly for bills and saving up! So I don't have to panic anymore hehe. Always scared I can lose it though. I hope not!
-I recently started making a financial plan and schedule for bills as well as capping limit on spending a certain amount, I've been trying to do it where I do not need to freeze my card once it hits a certain amount and it's going well. Hopefully that continues <3
-I'm starting to eat healthier, even though the environment where I live is still horrible I feel like I'm making progress.
-I want to thank all of you who I've met on here and supported me, gave me advice, and have been just so genuinely kind.
-As a thank you, I would like to hold another RAFFLE! I haven't done this in a long while so I'm really
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d

deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing.
I feel much the same way about deviantART.
I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo

Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions G8F to G8M:
Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.
Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.
