Homestuck? More like homeSUCK. (An elaboration)At the risk of my watchers looking down on me, I've decided to express my distaste for homestuck.
It seems like everyone either, 1) Likes the fandom (art) of homestuck, but doesn't actually like homestuck itself, OR 2) Likes homestuck but can't stand the fandom surrounding it.
I, personally, don't appreciate either.
I find homestuck to be an incredibly mediocre...webcomic? that got really really blown up for whatever reason and now I cannot escape it. It's everywhere online. The overhype is oozing into every crevice of the internet like a mildly warm combination of masturbation-sweat and zit-puss. All of the fanart is blending together into one big clusterfuck of grey skin and candy corn.
The argument that's always presented to anyone that dislikes it is "WELL, KEEP READING, IT GETS BETTER".
I'm sorry, but if I've been sitting here reading something for as long as it could have taken for me to watch an entire movie and I'm still bored as all hell:
IT'S NOT A GOOD STORY.

Wow. Color fight. UPDATED---If not interested in lame OC drama, ignore---
We all know the stereotype of sparkledog creators.
"OMG YEW STOLE MY COLORSSSS AUUUGGGGGH"
I've seen this in live-action a few times. But that was years ago, before dog characters became a universal laughing-stock.
WELL IT'S NOT DEAD YET, APPARENTLY
This morning I gracefully flopped out of bed after 4 hours of sleep and sashayed my way over to my computer to feed my addiction of sweet, tender internet.
And behold, a note! How exciting!
Now, this is something I see a lot. People trying to get me to fight their battles for them.
It's also not uncommon for my watchers to get into tiffs and tattle on eachother to me.
With a bunch of preteen wolf lovers in one place, what can one really expect?
Here's the deviations they linked to;
Wow, lookin' pretty kewl, WolfAsh.
So let's snoop a bit.

IP confusionIt's sad to see people fighting about intellectual property rights when they apparently have no clue what those are, how they work and what is allowed (and not).
Prime example: http://boltstrueno1fanever.deviantart.com/art/Onyx-Forepaw-Feb-2012-Ref-286737985 vs. http://yasuoxingxing.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4vcima
Obviously the latter is similar to the first.
The question is: is this allowed?
To answer that question, it is important to understand what rules apply and what intellectual property (IP) is.
There are three different kinds of IP that can apply here:
As the name hints this is the right to make copies of a work. It does not protect ideas, only the actual recorded work - artwork, documents, music etc.
This means that if someone copies your art (by directly copying it, by tracing it or otherwise adapting your work) you can certainly take action, but there is little you can do to prevent someone else creating their own
PE - The Beef with BasesWelcome to the Beef with Bases article. This may get a little controversial, so put on your heavy duty hats!
By now, we should all know what a base is. But just for a refresher - A base is a bald, naked figure for people to 'doll' clothes onto. Lately, more people have been making animal bases as well. Some argue that since they can't be dressed up, they aren't proper bases. But a base is a vague term to begin with.
Why do so many people make bases? What's the allure? Many people just start doodling and end up with a body they don't plan on finishing. So why let it go to waste? They fix it up a bit and let other people use it, so maybe others will find inspiration where theirs left off. Other times people are inspired by a pose, and want to practice their anatomy and draw the body. Sometimes people even have an idea in mind - say... a big set of mermaid poses! And more frequently, people see a piece of art t
Interested in Dreamworks? Lighting ResourceSo I attended a talk by Bert Poole - He's currently serving as a CG Supervisor on their new movie "The Croods" scheduled for release in March 2013. His most recent movie, you all know of is How to Train Your Dragon, where he was also a CG Supervisor. If you don't know what that means, that means he worked on lighting C: What I'm putting below is from notes I took during his lecture.
His job is to take the directors vision and make the movie look like it. He's making compositions and helping the story to better read. If you've ever talked to me on DA for three or more posts, you might have heard me blab about my major and what I'd like to do. I'd like to do into Lighting, animation second. I just don't feel my skills are as suited for animation, even though I really enjoy it.
Before they start lighting, they work on color Keys
Color Keys are painted works that are used to indicate:

Sorry to bother you...Hello all,
I thought I'd take a moment today to write a journal which is probably long overdue. I believe there is a common misconception floating around that CVs are so busy, that when you send us DD Suggestions, or other messages, you are being a bother.
Quite regularly the DD Suggestions I receive start with something along the lines of "I am sorry to bother you..." or "I know you are busy but.."
I'd like to assure you all that no suggestions you send, or any other type of contact made with me (or any other CV for that matter) is something to feel sorry or bad about (unless you are legitimately harassing us or something).
I've often heard community members talk about how many notes CVs get daily (often this number appears to be near 100) and I feel the need to say that this is very far from the truth. On average I receive maybe 5 notes a day. On a slow day I may not get any at all and on a busy day I may get up to 10. While I can not speak
Jealousy on deviantART......Is a dangerous, dangerous thing. And really, it's not worth it I think I've finally realized why I was in that art slump for so long, and only drawing portraits. Because, like every other artist on deviantART I aspired to be recognized for my art-- not for fanart, but for my art. And since headshots were so much easier to draw than full bodies and because they always seemed to get more recognition than artworks that I actually spent time on, I got into drawing them more often. Until sooner rather than later, I just lost inspiration to draw full bodies.
Then things get worse when I started comparing my work to other artists. I don't know HOW many times I've encouraged other artists to do art for themselves and never compare their art to others. But for the longest time, I was doing it without even realizing it! Always obsessing over the front page, comparing my work to other artist's-- it's especially worse when you see a younger artist getting more recognition than you; but m

Your account is yours.Just something that has been on my mind for a while... this attitude I am encountering more and more. Its an attitude where people feel that you owe them something for no particular reason other than your work is gaining exposure? I am not just speaking for myself but others too who I have seen getting barraged by people with this kind of mindset.
For example comments along the line of 'This is okay, but when are you going to do some real art, do some landscapes and nude portraits, you will get no where in life with anime', or stop spamming with crappy pictures, only submit ones that are polished an finished because I am sick of getting my inbox spammed with all your crappy 'scribbles'. 'I really don't see why your pictures get so much attention, there are people on here much better than you'.

Well gosh darnit, son of a biscuitThis is a black Tuesday for dA. All my favourite accounts are getting banned one after another. First :iconbutthurtbrigade: and a good chunk of it's members including the fabulous :iconfuhrer-glasses: and :iconstapledslut:. And now even :iconwolfofthunders:
I will have to completely reorganise my breakfast schedule because of some overzealous admin. Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.
My breakfast should look like this:
And now for a few days will look like this. Which is mostly inconvenient and you should care because...umm...yes, because yes.
Homophobic #ToMyUnbornChild tweets turned into PSACharlotte Moore (Cavatica) from Raleigh, North Carolina has created a PSA against homophobia after the Twitter hashtag #ToMyUnbornChild attracted homophobes to publicly announce that they would murder their child if he or she was gay.
#ToMyUnbornChild became a trending topic on Twitter a few weeks ago, and while most people used it to write loving tweets to their future children, some homophobes decided to do just the opposite.
@Homophobes, a Twitter account that retweets homophobes to expose their ignorance, published an article of 100 extremely homophobic tweets, which gained quite a bit of attention around the web.
Charlotte Moore was inspired, and decided to write and direct a PSA using the tweets. The video was produced by Brian Lee and Nick Heim.

CEA Blog: Mature ContentHey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it. For those of you eager to look at some boobs and hot male torsos, I'm afraid I won't be including any here .
How the mature content filter works
All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.
The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi
PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?Why did an icon get a DD?
Daily deviations tend to be a controversial topic within the community and whether or not a DD is worthy of the feature is, as such, often discussed.
As a CV for Icons & Handhelds I often find it interesting to read these discussions, since that way I can see what the community expects of the features, but the recent negativity on the Icons & Handhelds DDs is something I would like to address, which is why I'm thankful I'm given this opportunity during the Daily Deviation PE-week. I will try to explain why I think icons and handhelds are worthy of the feature and why they may be dismissed just a bit too quickly.
Let's begin at the beginning.
When deviantART first started, it was a site that mainly geared towards customization. Be it wallpapers or icons, if you take a look at some of the first DDs. So how come there'
PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b
A Note on Daily Deviation FeaturesAt ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work. You're what makes this site such a great community.
With that said, let's get to the troublesome themes I am coming across.
The "This is crap!" Argument
As an observer and a critic, you're entitled to think that something isn't very good. However, exclaiming as such on the comments of a piece of work that an artist has spent time and energy creating is not only counter-productive, but rude and insulting, especially if it's not followed up with some advice about how you think they could make their
PE: Tolerance Towards Daily DeviationsIf you're like me, one of the first things you do every morning is turn on the computer to check the DDs for the day, if you make this a habit sooner or later you'll see something featured that you won't like at all, making you spill your morning coffee all over the screen.
Oh the crime! That poor coffee going to waste.
Before you hit the Caps Lock button and begin an essay about the drop of quality of DDs, stop. Take a deep breath, maybe walk around for a bit to cool down, and think about what you're going to do. To begin with, complaining about the DD leaving a comment is extremely disrespectful for the artist because most of the time, they didn't even ask to be featured. Instead, take a moment to consider why was it picked, DDs are chosen for far more than just being visually attractive, as the article Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend explained; we often look f
Do you like furigana? -update- UPDATE: I re-arranged the tools in a list so they're easier to find, and added a few more. I hope you can make use of them.
Just in case, furigana is the little hiragana that you can see over kanji in Japanese text that helps reading them. Is very useful if you're studying the language.
The other day I found some really useful tools related to furigana, and though on sharing them.

Manga/Anime ResourcesHi! In conjunction of Resources Week, Shoujo-Beat had participated in a group contest hosted by projecteducate and FantasyStock via StockandResources. For this week, #Shoujo-beat had submitted a Hub Blog just for this contest and I want to thank to all members and affiliates who are willing to help out in this event!
Since we are a shoujo group and our group is mostly related to manga/anime, most of the resources here is about manga/anime. Some may not because I thought they may come useful too!

119: Our Sonic Generations"You'll get bored of it, you know."
" I'm sorry, what?"
"You'll get bored of it, and then you'll hate it. That's what happens."
I simply turned and smiled. "Heh, you obviously don't know me very well, do you?"
Even when I was small, people used to tell me that I'd end up working for SEGA. I was crazy about the blue hedgehog from age six, and it's safe to say I haven't stopped since. I just smiled, though. It just seemed to be one of those things people said. I always knew that I wanted to, but I lacked the confidence for a long time, and as a result simply thought I lacked the appropriate skills. I've been in the online community for all of my teenage years, developing all aspects of my artwork mainly for the basis of showing my love for the franchise and the ethos of the series to others. The day I was hired, I knew things were starting to look up for me. I'd always made a promise to myself that I would do my best to make an impact however I could.
It wasn't before lon
Traced BasesA base created by tracing someone else's work.
Using a traced base is like being the last segment of a human centipede.
You're not even just tracing, you're filling on top of something that was already traced for you.
It's the epitome of laziness. It's recycled shit in your mouth. It's anti-art.
Traced base-ers. They demand credit for supplying you with diarrhea to eat and re-shit.
And that's why I have a project for you.
An example of perfection:
