Frequently asked questions: (updated)What program(s) do you use for your artwork?-- I use Paint Tool SAI for almost everything and I use Photoshop CS5 for some minor edits or sometimes to do some backgrounds. Where can I get Paint Tool SAI? (and) Is it a free program?-- You can get SAI here -- http://www.systemax.jp/en/sai/ -- SAI is not a free program, it costs about $60-$70 (around €40 or £35 give or take depending on currency exchange rates).(DO NOT get it from here even though it will give the program to you for free -- painttool -sai.en.softonic.com/ or sai .detstwo.com/ as both of these download sites are notorious for viruses and downloading SAI from these sites will also install a virus.)** There IS a free program out there that will give you a similar experience to SAI (not the same, but similar) called Firealpaca and it can be found here -- http://firealpaca.com (Site update as the other one wasn't worki

Can I take a few moments of your time?I just want to say a few words. Words I've been wanting to say for a while not but haven't had the much-ness or know-how to say; mostly because I didn't want it to come off as just another one of 'those' journal entries. One easily ignored. Firstly, thank you to all my watchers, followers, and fans. I rarely say 'fans' because to me one would have to be famous to have fans but it seems more or less over the last couple months (or years even) I've become somewhat infamous for all the wrong reasons. More so when it comes to my small circle of friends. You see, I don't get on easily with others, not online or in real life. More so in real life, mostly out of fear I suppose... But that's neither here nor there. Back on track. What I'm trying to say is just thank you, for putting up with the crap I've pulled, the misery I've brought on through countless grueling journals about how crap my life is, this, that, and the next thing. A huge thanks out to those who actuall
Is anyone else thinking this? (YouTube/Google+)I posted this to Tumblr first but seeing as more people on dA are on YouTube I figured to repost it here. WARNING: There's swearing in this... and YES, 99% of it is an opinion.(The other 1% is useless fucking rambling which you can ignore ) IS ANYONE ELSE ANNOYED BY YOUTUBE MAKING YOU CREATE A GOOGLE+ ACCOUNT TO SEE AND ACCESS COMMENTS ON YOUR VIDEOS?It just seems pointless and absolutely annoying. I went to go check my inbox to see 'this area of YouTube was disabled and you'll only get notifications through Google+'The hell is this crap? I don't like the layout, it’s bogged down by so much crap, not to mention even if you uncheck things it STILL sends you a buttload of bullshit crap about 'new features' and 'things you may like'... Like it fucking KNOWS me or some shit.They’re basically FORCING people to make some stupid Google+ account so they can have their emails bogged down by countless ads, features, and all other bullshit. 'Con
**Instagram IS NOT selling anything ** Alright... well, as with almost all these shock and awe stories about copyright infringement it appears this latest one is a false alarm as well...http://sharky7.deviantart.com/journal/Instagram-IS-NOT-selling-anything-368985305
WhoaDid anyone's inbox page go all... blue and odd? O_oLike this:Is it THAT hard to WARN people before you change something so drastically? GOOD LORD. I thought it was glitching again... Not sure if I like it or no... hmmm... Stars... I like stars :3 The blue hurts my eyes a bit. Kind of confuses me, ahhhahaha... PS: For the record I don't mind this update that much... it was just kind of mindf*ck when I come back and suddenly BLUE! Hurhur, but I don't mind it too much. It'll take some time to get used to, that's all.
SON OF A MONKEY WRENCH!To be honest I don't really get into the whole 'page views' and stuff like kiribans but... Someone happened to ask 'Do you even know your page stats?' and I'm like 'Pffft no.'SOoooooo of course this intrigued me to look... and this happened... <<< this was literally my face *Ishityounot*A million and 20K in 4 years... y'all is crazy!! Thanks guys I appreciate each and every one of your guys' support!
That's a dog...You know what is amusing?When people make groups (mostly on Facebook) dedicated to wolves saying "WE LOVE WOLVES" or "WOLVES ARE MY FAVOURITE ANIMAL!" and yet... they post a ton of images of dogs like huskies, shepherds, and malamutes (all Nordic breeds really). Nothing is more hilarious to see than an image of a full blood husky with a caption saying 'A beautiful wolf with blue eyes!' It's like dude... if a wolf is supposedly your ''favourite'' animal you SHOULD know what one actually looks like and how to tell the difference between a wolf and a dog. It's really not that hard unless it's a wolfish breed like the Czech Wolfdog or a Saarloos wolfdog (etc). Then I could see the possible mistaken identity.However...this -- http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/28700000/Siberian-Husky-animals-28799003-1600-1200.jpg should not be mistaken for thi
Cesar Millan? (personal opinion on the guy)What do you guys think of Cesar Millan or 'The Dog Whisperer'?Been watching some videos and been having some debates about his methods of training (which to me, being someone how has and does train dogs, are not as bad as people think).The controversy that he hits/punches dogs or even uses tooth collars and shock collars is just stupid to me as well. He never comes on the show saying 'we're going to use this shock collar to control your dog', if anything he tries to discourage the use of these things for control of bad behaviors, showing owners they can gain control and stop bad behavior easily, without painful tools.The fact remains that if a dog is aggressive and ready to hurt another dog or a human NOTHING will stop it, not a shock collar, not a choke chain, not a spike/tooth collar, or even a gate/fence. So the 'tools' used mean nothing, it's about presence, making the dog realize you are not a threat but you are also not a pushover.His methods do work when done properly and wi
THE WEIRDEST THINGAs many of you know I just started Uni, and I'm just getting to know my class and stuff. So we were put in groups to make paper structures and find random locations in the area, so I made friends with this one girl in our group and we were hanging around, having a good time, and then we got on the topic of social networking sites. And first we exchanged tumblr accounts, and i found out she was the source behind moon-moon! How crazy is that? Later we were discussing the topic of deviantART and fursonas and stuff, and she was like "oh yeah, my fursona is a white lion with a halo" and I was like "NO WAY!" It turns out it was :iconkitchiki: What are the odds? so fun! I love her art and I expect lots of trades, collabs and fun stuff in the future.I'll make another journal about Uni, my accomodation, my course, my class and overall experience later.Right now I'm trying to make my page look a little bit nicer, which I'm failing at.Cheers!EDIT:LOOK AT WHAT S
WARM read this if you are a active watcherIt is so warm here xD Ive been so UNPRODUCTIVE oh my god.. Sorry for late reply to things haha, im going to update my faq's soon, adding new common questions and stuff.*u* But I wanted to adress a few issues.If you send me notes and I have not replied yet it is because ive got several thousand messages. and often dusins of notes at the same time xD Be patient please.And I would appreciate it if many of you stopped with notes going somewhat like You dont have to read/look/answer this note, or Im sorry to disturb/annoy/bother you with this etc etc.. People come on, im not some important person which somehow dont have time for others. I communicate as much as I can, but I always read notes and reply to them if you ask me something. Do not put me or anyone else above yourself, we are all worth the same. Im just another artist/person. Sometimes it just takes longer for me to reply/look through messages/ read messages, but I always go through every single com
