IMPORTANT FOR ALL ARTISTSHIII! :iconbunnyloveplz:I´m sorry but today will be kind of a journal spam, you don´t need to read all of course, but there has been a lot I wanted to say for such a long timeAnd as I´m home and sick, I thought I would use this time to get some thoughts out ♥This is about COMMISSIONS and art in general.Load this video and watch it while you read my words ahaha :iconiluplz:http://www.youtube.com/watch?featurelayer_embedded&v=oWXYoD7wfOsPlease spread this video so more artists can hear it! ;;; It is only 5 mins long I know many people are upset with my commissions prices ahaha QAQBut really, I´m already working at a minimum wage. However I also agree that I am expensive if you compare with the other artists on dA. Which I think is sad.It is not that I´m expensive on purpouse. I´m selling my art what it is worth for my time.Is one thing if I need emergency money, but when you do this for fun, then yes, it should not be for free ;;;It is my ti
YAMIS BACK + Update/copyingHIIIII! :iconbunnyloveplz:How are you all? ;o;I will do my best to answer your notes and such ASAP :iconiluplz:I have been sick for about 10 weeks but today I´m feeling much better ^v^/This sickness was an additional over all my others, which affected them as well, then it became a bad circle :iconcraiplz:Anyways I´m up to go again! Working on gifts and commissions as normal ♥If I have written in my TO DO list that I have sketched/started on your commission, always feel free to ask for WIP! Even though I was gone I have been drawing ALOT in my sketchbook.I also noticed that when you are gone from dA my style turned back to it´s more individual way, as I didn´t have any influences in "the way". Which can be both good and bad haha ;;;;I´m sorry to bring up such a matter like this just now when I cam back.But I want to mention some few things about copying.Many friends of mine have been accused for copying me or other artists styl
About my name, copying and tracingHii everyone! :iconiluplz:Thank you all for the support and funny comments on my last journal XD I loved reading them through haha ;;; ~♥Anyways I have had a subject on my mind for quite the time that I thought was pretty accurate right now.I have seen many artist on this site getting extremely angry and upset when people copy them. Whenever it is behavioral, page layout or style of drawing.Some people even get so mad they call out on these people and make them look bad and bashes them. ;;;I can understand why you would get mad. Even I get upset when I see someone heavily copy me and then don´t credit at all.But really, just think after for a while. "Why did they copy just you?"I´m not saying that you should treat copying as some kind of flatter, but sometimes you actually have to consider some stuff.How old are this person?and WHY did they want to copy you?If it is to gain popularity or to just the mock the artist in question I believe it i

Its all a ScamContextThis is another long one, and I apologize but I need to speak my mind. This journal is in response to the "righteously indignant" users making a fuss about me "selling" fanart of copyrighted characters in my recent Adventure Time post. To the person who signed up today just to write a nasty comment on my new Society6 page. To the person who flagged my recent Adventure Time illustration on DA and then proceeded to send me an e-mail about doing it (probably the same person). To the people creating multiple accounts to try and dissuade users from spending their money how they see fit. And to a long list of people who follow everything I do post just to make sure that their negative voice and attitude are the first voices anyone ever sees on all of my work.It's All A ScamI'm in an unenviable position. Popular enough to be well known, not popular enough to be making oodles of cash off my stuff. Part of that is my own fault for not really promoting and selling myself,
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'

Still Life Stills Features: LEGOLEGO, fun for all ages!In 1949 Lego began producing the now famous interlocking bricks, calling them "Automatic Binding Bricks" The bricks, were a development of traditional stackable wooden blocks that locked together by means of several round studs on top and a hollow rectangular bottom. The blocks snapped together, but not so tightly that they required extraordinary effort to be separated. The bricks however, still had some problems from a technical standpoint requiring the right material and design needing to be found. In 1958, the modern brick design was developed and was patented on 28 January that year. Bricks from that time are still compatible with today's current bricks.full Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego
