dA avatars make me sadCan we all just agree that the size of avatars on dA is ridiculously small and they should be at least 100 px?
Back from OZComicCon BrisbaneThe con was slow and really tiring. I don't think the attendance was the 30k people the organisers told us would come, but this being the first time OZComicCon comes to Brisbane and it being around father's day... I guess it wasn't too bad.I got to hang with Ry-Spirit and some other peeps who I hadn't seen in a long time. Also got to play a bit of Smash Bros 3DS at the Nintendo booth so that's always a plus. 8) Thanks to all who came to the Bulbagarden table and said hi!

Octopus Accessories - art thieveshttp://www.octopus-store.ro/this is their store. They are Octopus Acessories This is their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OctopusAccessoriesThey had my drawings printed and were selling necklaces with them. They also lied to me that they did not steal them and took them from from some deviant who supposedly stole them first.They sent me this link to this deviant :iconxyqueen: but the drawings that belong to me were submitted 12 hours ago. So obviously this couldn't be true since Nijikon was over 12 hours ago, and they had them for sale since 3 days ago.This girl is so shameless, she lied to my face! She made me feel bad about calling her out and "making a scene" in front of her booth. OMG! And i believed her, i could have had her kicked out of the convention on the spot! She made me apologize for making a scene in front of her booth So she stole my art, and i was the one who apologized.THAT. IS. WRONG.Wow, if thievery was a game, she would be the final boss

Honey, We're Getting a MonsterfancyQUACKSA really hungry one...Naughty monsters are running rampant in the city again - you know the kind! They're short, noisy and make constant mischief on our doorsteps; begging for candy despite buying perfectly good pumpkins the same day. What's their dastardly plan for all that food? They're up to no good and must be stopped.We should feed the trick-or-treaters - to hungry, real monsters! There's a critter-shaped hole to this plan: we don't actually have any real monsters. But all we need are your designs to put into my Monster Making Machine to release them into the suburbs! Trick-or-treaters - gobbled up for good!How does this work? I'm glad you asked. The "Monster Maker 2000" is my old, modified microwave and this invention will create flesh-and-blood monsters from designs. A little energy combined with your designs will help bring our glorious abomination to life.Create & SubmitAs Professor Pudds of Monsterology, I'm very busy and need super tummy-rumbling monster
Monthly Theme FANTASY vote and win points:iconthefavouriteshowcase:Hello deviants This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites! All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups. The work with most votes wins 130 points;the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .These prizes can be updated for the next themes with the help of our friends::iconalex-blaszczynski: is giving 100 points for every
Do you/a friend Need Exposure for Adoptables? I've recently found people who have made these really nice adoptables, at least artistically I think they're really well done. And then it pains me to see when very few people bid on them, and this amazing creation can only sell for like, $5 or something.Now I've never tried adoptables, and I'm not sure I completely understand how they work, but what I do know is that it seems artists who do them are really at the mercy of how much exposure they get. In that way, it's much like everything else; if you don't have the numbers, really great work goes unnoticed and sells for a handful of jelly beans.So I'm going to do a journal that features Adoptables.Do you have, or know someone who is selling *nice quality* adoptables but really needs exposure on them? Leave a thumbnail or link in this journal, and maybe I'll choose them for my feature. I can't showcase them all, but I'd certainly like to try and get a few out there.The world gets harder for artists all the time
