Want lines? Here's how to get them! :)READ CAREFULLY.
I am going to have a mailing list for my lines, so you all can still enjoy them for FREE! But the catch is that it will be done through e-mail, and there will be an application process. You can thank all the no-good-son-of-a-bitch-pile-of-monkey-nuts rule breakers for this.
Here is how you can get my lines
To be approved, you MUST have filled out the application found here: http://somelines.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5rfx5n (Just copy and paste into an e-mail and then fill in your answers) Please write in English. If I can't read it, I can't approve it.
Send that application to my e-mail, email@example.com. DO NOT SEND ME A NOTE THROUGH DEVIANTART!!
I will send you an e-mail reply saying that I have received your application and that it is being reviewed (this way you will know if I got it).
IT MAY TAKE UP TO 1 WEEK FOR APPROV
How to request lines (very simple)So you want lines? Here is how to get them!
-Send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the list of titles you want (ex: horse 52, reindeer 8, etc).
That's it. Simple. There are some things I need to let you know though...
-There is A LIMIT of 10 lines per week that I will send to you. Choose wisely I guess.
-Do not request "your whole gallery" or "all your horses" or something along those lines. Give me 10 or less title names.
-You of course must be approved in order to request lines (I check).
-It may take up to 2 weeks for me to send them. It usually only takes me a day or two, but be patient if it takes me a little longer. I travel like 3 times a year, so at those times it will be delayed.
-Use the same e-mail you sent your application with. If you use a different e-mail, your message will just get deleted.
-Be sure to check the deviantart page of each line you use in case there are additional rules present. Occasionally, I will make a line where the original photo provider ask
RulesPLEASE FOLLOW MY RULES. I do enforce them and will not hesitate to report you and put you on my shit list. See my dA page for my shit list.
Credit me in the description or on the work.
Send me a link to your finished work WITHIN A WEEK after posting it. I prefer you leave a comment under each line you use.
Make some art. Color it. Do not just re-post as is.

Thinking PositivelySorry 'bout the last journal, that was a bit emo wasn't it? lol
Anyway, "I've come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace. That TWO a lawfirm. And that three or more become a CONGRESS! And by god I have had this congress! For 10 years King George and his-" oh... wait... hang on...
I meant to say I've come to the obvious conclusion that there's far too much hate on the internet. And while I might speak my mind about issues I feel are important, I myself have a tendency to focus a bit too much on the negativity side of things and not appreciate all the wonderful wonderful people there are around me.
So for this next week or so, I wanna try something different. I'm gonna try to make comics about being positive and happy about who you are, both as an artist and a person. I'm gonna start reblogging onto tumblr stuff I like from my favs or from fans too. And I'm going to try to say thank you to my fans ore often.
I'm calling this lil' experiment "project po
TFP : Unexpected pt 3Baby Steps
"Come on Lunar Chase, you can do it!" said Teevo, a miner drone.
It has been three orbital cycles and it was Teevo's turn to take care of Lunar Chase. He decided to spend his day teaching her how to walk. He found a room where it wasn't being used and started helping Lunar Chase take her first sparkling steps. He would grab her by the arms, pick her up until she was on her feet and have her take steps. Of course she would struggle and stumble but he was there to pick her up.
Lunar Chase was enjoying this but she wanted to wonder out the halls and show everyone that she's learning how to walk. When he was letting her to rest, she quickly crawled towards the door and pat on it.
Teevo look at her. "What's wrong? You want to go outside?"
She kept on hitting but with more force. Teevo sigh, "Alright."
He picked her up, cradle her in his arms and left the room. Once they were outside, Lunar Chase began to struggle to get out of his arms. "Now what?"
She reached her hands towards t

Big announcement and updates!So I figured it was about time I finally announced this... I'm pregnant! Our little girl is due in October!
Matty and I are so excited to finally be starting a family! As you can imagine, this little critter in my belly has been giving me a lot of grief! Remember when I disappeared for a couple months back in February? Morning sickness. Awful, horrible, debilitating morning sickness. It should really be called all-day sickness. It completely flattened me for a while, then I magically felt back to normal one day and got a ton done for a while, but over the past month I've developed a variety of classic pregnancy ailments that have progressively worsened. My feet (and hands! Wut?) have started swelling and get sore for no apparent reason. My back hurts like hell by the end of the day. But the really big one is the rib pain. I have a short torso so this kid is smashing all my organs up into my freakin rib cage! It's gotten to the point where it is just excruciat

A New Tool to Look for Art TheftI recently installed a new add-on to my Firefox called "Who Stole My Pictures". If you have Firefox and you're interested in installing it, here's the link to the Add-on. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/who-stole-my-pictures/
What it does is add an item to your context menu (menu that pops up when you RIGHT-click on something) called "Who stole my pictures". So when you right-click on one of your images, that menu pops up and you place your cursor over "Who stole my pictures", a new menu pops out and you can choose to look for that image using three different image search engines, TinEye, Google.com and Yandex.ru. I have used the first two before (TinEye can also be installed as an add-on to Firefox), but I had never heard of Yandex.ru. Well, I did a search using Yandex.ru on several of my images and boy, was I surprised!!! One of my images, May Flowers (an oldie, but obviously a goodie) was posted over 3,0000 times on Russian and other inte
Free Art Help + Live TutorialsIf you need it. And you think I will be able to help you
I can do redlines, help you pick out colors, help with backgrounds, perspectives, expressions, shading "redlining," etc, etc.
I am also willing to help you all out by doing live tutorials of how I do different things. You'll be able to see it firsthand, I'll describe what I'm doing while I'm doing it, and you will be able to ask me questions throughout the process.
Both the art help + tutorials will all be done on join.me
I'm the best at horses, but I can attempt humans and other hooved mammals.
Just comment with;
a link & a description of what you'd like some help with
whether you want me to do it live while you're watching
I'm super excited that my join.me started working again. It is a bit slow.... but it beats it not working at all!
Back to Basics Photography - Understanding RawdSLR cameras and most bridge cameras have the option to shoot in raw, but what exactly is it and what are the benefits? Let me attempt to explain.
A camera raw file contains all the data that is captured when the shutter button is pressed whereas a JPEG is compressed and a lot of the data is lost. They are often called digital negatives as they serve the same purpose as the negatives in film photography; they are not ready to be used as the final image, but hold all the information and data needed to produce one. This all means that you are left with a higher image quality which also allows you to have more control and manipulate more parameters than a JPEG. All of the metadata is also still in tact, meaning that the original state can always be referred back to if needed.
So, surely you want to see the difference, right? Well you're in luck.

In the Eyes of a Pit BullI am telling you my story behind the bars of a jail. The evil stares I get for listening to my owner I thought cared about me. I ended up with only tragedy accumulating in my thoughts. I don't understand the human language, but one thing I do understand is my dog instincts. I remember I was put in the arena. It smelt of past bloody battles. I remember the brutal training my owner ceased upon me yet I do not understand nor like this gory sport. I had an opponent twice my size. The jaws of the beast before my eyes were enormous as they clamped down on my wrinkly skin. The pain was excruciating. It shot not only up my leg, but through my body. I let out a blood-curling cry. Not a cry of pain, but a cry for forgiveness for whatever I did to my owner to make him put me through this torture. Behind me I could hear the cheering, the shouting. I could hear my owner's distinct shouting behind me. A flood of memories drown me. I remembered that shouting of when I went through the horrific traini
Clarifying an Issue with Stock ResourcesThere appears to be a fair amount of misunderstanding on the subject of stock resources so what I would like to do today is attempt to clarify several issues which are of importance to the artists who generously provide stock resources to the public for use and hopefully dispel the confusion and misinformation which is beginning to circulate.
The first issue at hand is in regards to your personal stock terms
Your Personal Stock Terms
Officially deviantART maintains only one "automatic" restriction and that is "No Commercial Use" and that particular restriction can easily be overridden by the actual stock provider.
We only ask a few things from you in return;
The whole thing about Copyright...Copyright.
It's a tricky little thing, right?
Not really. Copyright is quite easy to understand. Despite this, few people actually truly understand the full meaning of copyright.
Over my years here on DA, I've seen several people that don't quite understand what copyright is. Some times they listen to what they are told when you try to explain, sometimes they don't.
I've thought about it for years, but finally decided to actually bring up the issue.
Copyright is something that – like the name suggests – protects your original work. Weather it is a photo or painting or something else. It is your right to own your own original work.
Copyright applies to all things that you upload to the internet. You don't need to put a big stamp on your photo to have it protected by copyright. Unless anything else is stated, full copyright applies to the specific photo. A picture is not "Public Domain" just because it lacks a watermark or a signature. A copyright stamp is not mandatory if you want somet
Warrrrniiing!So it's time for a 'pissed off journal' (once again) but this time I think some of you might profit from reading it and will be able to avoid some huuuge mistakes I did.
So a couple of months ago I was commissioned by werewwulf who wanted me to draw her nordanner. It was a 8000 commission, which means very detailed fullbody with background. I finished her commission a month later and posted it on DA. As you've probably realized already; she didn't pay for it. Or at least she hasn't till this day. I'm not going to go on about how fucking mean and rude it is to order a commission and then not pay for it, cause that's not the point of this journal.
I blame myself for what happened, or at least I know I could've done a lot to prevent it from happening. Like getting half the payment when the commissioner sees the sketch. I can't believe how freaking ignorant I was to believe people out there would never do such a rude thing. So people remember always get at least half of

There are some amazing stock out there on Deviantart. I'm taking a guess here, but DA have to be one of the best sites for people looking for recourses.
