deviantART loathes youThe day is Saturday, December 11th, and DameGreyWulf's, MY account, was taken from me, and deactivated, like many, many others have been, in relation to Draconis-Wyrm's hijack.I filed a ticket in the same day, requesting aide and support. Lacking response and shenanigans seen elsewhere spurred me to note spyed on Monday. As of December 23rd, I've sent ~10 notes to spyed in regards to this matter, and begged for response in my support ticket.No response received.Though, at the risk of giving myself unwarranted self-importance, soon after some of my notes spyed added fourteenthstar to his watch and fourteenthstar made that official announcement regarding the change of the Deactivation system.Things to read initially: http://nannairb.deviantart.com/journal/36853717/ http://doitforthelulz.deviantart.com/art/Deactivation-Process-189647574 http://nannairb.deviantart.com/journal/36872672/ http://nannairb.deviantart.com/journal/36930524/ http://news.deviantart.com

10 easy ways to relieve depression/stressBecause we all need it sometimes....Here's 10 ways that help me, and could help you with depression/stress.10 things to help with depression/stress::1. Try to take a relaxing walk. (Find a place near you that's calm and peaceful. Parks are always nice, and if you can find one where there's a nice place to sit, do so, and sit there and think of how beautiful nature is.)2. Read a good book. (Books help a person escape reality, and expose them to a different place where anything is possible allowing them to see things differently.)3. Take a warm bath with some candles and relaxing music. (See if you can find a moment to yourself, where the house is empty, and just sit in the bath and breathe deeply, freeing your mind of everything but the calm sounds around you.)4. Scream into a pillow. (I know it seems a bit strange, but doing this can help relieve more than just anger. Screaming is a release, and it can help purge the body of negativity, allowing

Well, let's try and make this experience as awesome as possible!1. Getting StartedFirst of all, you probably want people who come to your page to actually stay on your page and browse your gallery.

Adoptables, Basics for Adoptables ArtistsTwo Steps to Start Create a new accountThis is not necessary, per se, but if you have in mind to do more than just one or two sheets of adoptables, it might be a good idea to start a new account. This way you won't spam your watchers' inbox, if they're not interested in adoptables, and you can organize your gallery in a better way. Be a member of Adoptables GroupsdA is a big community and the sheer amount of new deviations every day makes it hard for your art to be seen. Considering that you just made a new account for your adoptables, you have basically no watchers whatsoever so how can you get the exposure you need to sell your characters? The answer is join Adoptables Groups. By doing this you can do two things, the first is submit your adoptables to their gallery and advertise them, the second is observing the trends, what people like to draw and buy more.Make Adoptables
Accident Vs SinSome people have been asking me whats the point of the contest ( Contest info in Artist's comment )Pretty much everyone knows there is a Bp oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, but how many people actually knows the details of the spill? Other people have been telling me that the spill was just an accident, so I should leave Bp alone, because accidents happen. Sadly, they wouldnt say that if they know the details of the spill (hence the contest).In my painting I said Remember this sin. Remember tomorrow. So what is an accident vs a sin?An accident would be if the oil rig exploded for no reason regardless of all the safety measures they could have put in place. A sin is when greed is turned to shortcuts on safety measures for greater profit at the cost of peoples lives and the envi
Adoptables, Basics for AdoptersSince I've been asked these questions a lot, I thought to write some journals about it. This is from an Adopter's point of view.What are adoptables?Adoptables are "characters" that you can purchase for your personal use. They can be animals, humans, objects... Anything and everything can be turned into an adoptable.What exactly *is* it that I'm adopting?You're adopting the *character* itself, not the design, not the art, just the character.Take this adoptable:Art = The drawing itself = Right remains to the artist, unless stated otherwiseOriginal Species = The lines = Right remains to the artist, unless the species is for adoption too (Not valid in case of existing species such as wolves, cats, etc....)Design = Black coat/Golden wings/Pattern on Tail = Right remains to the artistCharacter = (Original Species + Design) = This is yoursYou are basically adopting the right to use the character as a whole, spe
