Yes, yes, I'm talking about this again. It has come up again a couple times recently when I was talking to various staff members on their journals or mine, so I figured I'd put together a better breakdown of why exactly I don't like this new system, because it's a bit much for a single comment.
Alright, so, in this new system the tags don't use spaces. I've yet to hear a decent reason for this, and that bugs me, because the lack of spaces just doesn't work. Plenty of sites do have tags with spaces (tumblr and youtube, to name just a couple) so it is totally possible, however I do understand that the framework of some sites can make it incred
Hey guys! Just wanted to let everyone know I'm going to be SUPER busy this week participating in the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen which is being run by Misha Collins. It's crazy fun. Emphasis on crazy. I'll put up a journal when the hunt is over and share the stuff I did for the hunt so you guys can watch me and my sister run around like possessed monkey's doing the weirdest shit.
And! There is a super simple way you guys can help me and my team with this hunt! Go follow @TMTANPPHAlarm We need to get 200 followers by the end of the week so any follows are super appreciated.
So yes, busy, busy, busy with tha
Hey guys, so I've got a very important request for all of my watchers. Please, please go see the new movie "City of Bones" this weekend. It is an awesome movie based off of awesome books and is one of the best book-to-movie adaptions I have ever seen.
Please don't pay attention to the stuck up male critics who are scared off by a female led young adult novel adaption. If you end up not liking it, that's fine, but don't let what the critics say dissuade you from giving it a shot. Go in and form your own opinion!
We need more strong females in entertainment and this movie has them in spades. Don't let it get swept under the rug!
The Alternative Limb Project by Sophie de Oliveira Barata is a project focused on creating highly realistic and unique prosthetic limbs for amputees. These limbs are designed to stand out, to draw attention to something many people are afraid to look at. The prosthetic are carefully designed by Sophie, a long time artist and special effects artist, to reflect the personalty and hobbies of the wearer. The goal of the whole project is to draw positive attention to something that is normally viewed in a negative light. While the pieces aren't necessarily meant for everyday wear, they function more like an expensive dress or a piece of jewelry th
So, you guys may or may not have heard that Colorado is experiencing some crazy flooding right now. So far only three people are confirmed dead, but we've still got two or three more days of rain coming. Some of the pictures coming out of this flood so far are pretty shocking.
Thankfully my area hasn't been hit as hard as some others, but it has been hit. I had to wade to school this morning since I don't have a car. ("Oh, it's not that bad! It's only a couple blocks to my school, I'll be fine!" was what I thought at the time...I was wrong. Spent seven hours in class soaking wet and very displeased.) When I left for school this morning there
Congrats to :devLady-Corbeau:!
Thanks to everyone who entered! Keep an eye on the drawPLZ forum for more Muro challenges.
Alright, so, as you guys have probably noticed I haven't been around as much lately. The main reason for this is that I've been having a very difficult year emotionally. The biggest reason for this is my mother. There's really no need to go into detail with it, but we have a very unhealthy relationship due to her inability to show me any respect or trust. Today we had another fight over something that was admittedly very minor, but it was the final straw for me. She is not a healthy person for me to be in any sort of relationship with and despite all my attempts to try and fix things, things haven't gotten better.
Because of the incident tod
I don't like 'em. However, I don't hate them either, but I think the only way I could get used to them is if a few changes are made.
They need to be faded so they are less distracting. Right now they're so dark your eye is instantly drawn to them instead of the name. (Yes, you can install scripts to fix this but this only effects how YOU see it, not how everyone else on deviantART who doesn't have the script sees it.)
They need to be smaller. This is basically the same as the issue above. The new symbols are huge and distracting.
Move the symbols back to the left. Now, I THINK them being on the right probably has something to do with codin
AKA I dragged my sister over to deviantART since she doesn't have an account, has never had one, and thus is about as "new" as you can get. I wanted to get her thoughts on the new symbols because of that. (This is in fact my general method for testing anything that deviantART claims to be doing for the sake of new users. My sister puts up with it pretty well. She might think I'm a bit nuts though.) I linked her a chain of comments and told her to tell me what she thought of the symbols next to names.
Here's her response from skype:
Annana: They're cute.
Kat: Any thoughts on what they represent?
Annana: Errrr....that you're all wonderful
Hey guys, I have opened a society6 store to help with finances. I know I don't make much off of society6, but every dollar helps and it's passive income which is incredibly helpful. If you could take a look, and at least share some stuff from it I would greatly appreciate it! There's a variety of prints, iphone/ipad cases and skins, laptop skins, pillows, clothing, and more available.
I have posted my original art, my original photography, and several fan works that I have permission to post from awesome sweet people. Here's a few of the things in the shop, with more to come:
:la: Finally got a job. It's a work study in my college's marketing department. And since it's at my college, that means no commute! I am a happy girl, even if it's only part-time minimum wage.
Okay, I cave. Anyone got any tricks for motivation? Because I can't motivate myself for my Art History Class for shit. It's mostly because the entire first half of the semester was royally screwed up and thus I lost total faith in the class and the teacher. (There's a really long, rambling story to go with this, but essentially the teacher wasn't teaching at all. No feedback was given, no interaction, nothing. This has been fixed by administration now, but it's to little to late for various reasons.)
The class is online and entirely essay based with a huge amount of reading every week. I've tried every motivational trick I know of. Candy, mu
Hey guys, just wanted to stop in and give some updates.
First off, thanks for all the well wishes now that my term as a volunteer is up. It was a great year, I just wish I could've done more! (Join the volunteer team during your first year of college, Katara. There's no chances of that crashing and burning, Katara. Ha.)
I have had a REALLY long year, and not in a good way. I've had a falling out with my mother to the point we barely speak, my grandfather is dying, the other has already passed away, and my college has screwed me ten ways to Sunday. You know, the usual stuff.
All of this has had me really antsy. "Get on a flight to Paris at
Still tweaking a few things, but please tell me what you think. :)
Sherlock, you asshole. I love you.
...Can it be Sunday now? Please? I NEED MOAR.
Just a quick portrait of Ashley Purdy since I got some new inking pens.
Prints are available in my society6 shop! society6.com/KataraAlchemist/A…
