For anyone that need a new Art Program:I found out on Tumblr this morning that Adobe was letting people download programs like Creative Suite 2 and Adobe Illustrator for free.So if your like me and been using Programs like Photoshop elements and PSP 8 for the last couple of years and want to try something new, here's the Link:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1woD1x4CzokSxRsTaNU4K0nH7n0GAUSkXmwyfWAjLXu0/preview?sle=trueI would suggest just downloading the Adobe Illustrator first to see how you like it. Also it doesn't have the brush sets that the newer ones have so you might want to download a few brush sets. These are the one's I got:http://www.melsbrushes.co.uk/?p=177and one from DA:A few notes:When I save as a Photoshop file, you have to export it. And when you do that, the first box on is labeled color mode. It always has CMYK , and everytime I try to save that it says I don't have enough memory. I don't know if that's true because when I click that box and save it as a RGB file, it works f

On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,I am here today to talk to you about Bases and Dolling. I am not asking you to do it, or even to like it, but just to put out a standpoint that is sorely missing from this ongoing row over what a Base really is. You may think a base is a large traced piece from anime with no skill and that the people who draw on top of them are lazy artists who just don't want to learn how to draw. Some bases are traced, but not every base. Dolling is a hobby, something that is done for fun, and not every doller out there wants to be able to draw like a whiz kid. A lot of people hold down jobs, or full time education and just want a little fun. And so they are able to use a base that they like and draw some clothes and hair onto it, often very skillfully.

**Please** Read--Update 9/1Update 9/1: The main fire has moved into South Dakota and grew 78 square miles overnight, causing evacuations in the Pine Ridge area. Those nearest to my college town of Chadron were 40% contained as of last night, and the main roads were reopened to light traffic. One of Mom's neighbors was able to go out and scout the properties, and it looks like all is well on her/the development's side of the highway, which the fire thankfully didn't cross (four lanes of road between the houses and the flames, that's it). With luck, she and the dogs should be able to return home early next week, but evacuees are being asked to stay put for the time being. Small towns being what they are, 98% of people have been amazing to and for one another, and the motels housing the evacuees are not charging them for their stay. People from all over the panhandle (including the incredible woman who owns my "Pray Standing" paintings--Starla, you
LeechesHere's an average summary of a private message that I receive on a weekly basis:Hello,I just came by your profile and saw your art, and was very impressed. I think you have a very nice art style. Now I'm working on this project. It's called <project>. It's an awesome story about <subject>. I'm currently writing the script for it, but I'm planning to make a visual novel. I can't tell too much about the story, since I don't want it to be copied, but it's going to be really cool. The point is; I need illustrators. I'm an excellent writer, but I can't do illustration at all. And therefore, I wanted to ask for your help. I need about 60 pages illustrated and colored. Would you work together with me on this one? I don't have any money to spend, as I'm not an established writer yet. But when the visual novel gets published, you can get a percentage of my profit.With kind regards,Person XWell... let me translate this for you.This Person X

Thanks for the Birthday Wishes...Hey everyone,I just wanted to thank everyone for all the messages and artwork I've gotten today. It's really appreciated. ----And as a reminder: :iconAaronNeathery:, creator of "Endtown": http://www.gocomics.com/endtown Well, some of his friends have contacted me and told that he is in the hospital for a re-occurring foot ailment. He can't get insurance for it because apparently they classified it as a pre-existing condition. But they set up this fundraiser to help him out: https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/pq02/keependtownaliv So if you enjoy his work as much as I do then maybe you can help out and chip in a little.
The Nudist Beach recruits!The recruitment drive is over but you don't have to stop drawing new recruits if you still want to.Thanks to everyone who participated in this month-long recruitment drive and I hope you all had fun! [Star!] [Star!] [Star!] [Star!] [Star!] [Star!] [Star!] [Star!] [Star!] [Star!]As some of you people know, I am a fan of Kill La Kill and have been riffing on the "uniforms" of the rebel group Nudist Beach with crossover characters.As you can see from the recruiting poster, there is a basic uniform design but you can customize it - as I have - for the various characters I have drawn.Even the 4 Devas have their very own version of a Nudist Beach uniform so there really aren't any limits except that you can't technically be wearing clothes - you can only wear accessories such as hats, belts, straps, s

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i
