A notice about my games and stuffAll right! deviantART journal… cause this is kinda important, I think. Well, some of it…? I’ll start with the important stuff and I’ll leave the personal/explanation stuff afterwards. Good? Let’s go!So some of you may have heard that network I work with, Mochi Media is shutting down at the end of this month on March 31st, 2014. This means that the publishers I work with will no longer have the rights to post/distribute most of my games (so they won’t be available on other websites anymore) and I will no longer be receiving anymore earnings from them. So you’re probably wondering what’s going to happen, right? Here’s what I’m gonna do: I’ll post my games directly to deviantART, so you guys will be able to play them here on this site. (I’m just going to update the .swf file on every game listed in my gallery so the full game can be played there instead of them linking you to t
Is it Me? Or is Deviantart Dying?I was chatting to some art/writing friends online, and it seemed to be something we agreed upon.Deviantart seems kinda dead, or like it's dying or something. Or is that just for me ( and the people I've spoken to?). Honestly, I think a lot of the changes they made are responsible.Disclaimer (because I always need one for some reason). This is my journal. It is my opinion. If you have a different opinion I'd love to hear it. I'm not out to offend anyone (kind of sadly hilarious I have to post these more and more lol ).I've been here a long time. Well, I suppose I wasn't active for many years. I lived in Japan and Deviantart has no presence there. But then 3.5 years ago I decided to teach myself to paint, so I suddenly became active.I think a lot of the recent Site Updates to Deviantart have really made things hard for those of us who are serious about artwork ( or maybe everyone?). Usually, it was fairly standard that when you post a new
Death Threat 'Hitman Scam'Teeth brushed and ready to tuck myself into bed, thought I would read a new note which had just popped into my DeviantArt inbox...It turned out to be a lot more sinister than I was expecting...My heart beat faster as I tired to make sense of it. 'Death will be your destiny' Does someone wants to kill me? Who? Why? What?I've had people say some pretty harsh stuff, but nothing along these lines. Is this a troll, or am I actually in danger? Do I phone the police? Report it to DeviantArt? I knew it was probably a troll, scammer, hacker, trickster, but still felt uneasy. I knew there probably wasn't someone out to kill me, but anxiety jumps in the pool before rationality has put its swimming costume on. ( and I have a very vivid imagination, as you might have realised by now ) So I googled the name and email address hoping to come up with something, but nothing. So I copy and pasted the contents of the message into google. Where resu
'Plagiarism' and 'Tracing' casesHi everyone.First of all, I need to say I NEVER trace photos or other people's works. That's too much.Second: all the cases is not intended to pass for original work. It's strange to think that if you find something on the internet you can steal it, pass it as your own and nobody ever find original one.I'm still learning, and sometimes when I like character, overall style, composition etc I want to know why I liked it. So maybe there is where the problem starts - I start to copy (or imitate) it to understand what's so good in it. In the end it's more like a redraw, or a 'tribute'. My thoughts was that draw tributes means to express my love to the artist and to learn from him. Yes, mistake was in not giving a proper credit, and now I understand.My biggest mistake was to don't have an ability to understand that it doesn't clear about originality of the pieces, about tributing, to think that is something obvious.And I'm really sorry for that. I
