If you like the new logo, this journal entry isn’t for you, but if you don’t like the new logo, I have a plan to get it changed. So far, people have just been complaining about the new logo looking terrible, but that isn’t going to do anything. The deviantART staff will just think we’re complaining because we don’t like change. We can’t just tell them that the new logo is terrible, we need to PROVE it!

We need to put our pencils where our mouths are. We need to spend our time making or improving their logo, to prove to them that their logo is bad, and that we want them to change it. They say that deviantART is for the community; that we’re all in this together. Well let’s see them prove it!

If we all work together, and ALL of us make our own logo, we’ll be sending a message to deviantART. A message they simply won’t be able to ignore. If their entire art community is willing to spend the time to fix the mistake they made, they HAVE to pay attention.

What I’m saying, is that we all need to make our own logo. I want you to go make your own deviantART logo. It can be based on their current one, or it can be completely different. You can use digital art, traditional art, or even pixel art. Just make your own logo. After that, tell everyone you know to do the same thing.

If we all pull together and do this, deviantART will have to notice that we aren’t simply complaining. We’re trying help deviantART!

So to list it more simply:
    ·    Make your own deviantART logo
    ·    Use the tags #speakout and #Newlogo, and if appropriate #dahybridlogo
    ·    Tell everyone you know to make their own deviantART logo (perhaps linking them to this journal entry)

If we flood deviantART with this many alternate logos, each one showing our displeasure with the current logo. Then they will notice, and they will have to realize that they need to rethink their logo design. We can do this if we ALL WORK TOGETHER, we just need to be heard.

Hmm. It looks like I'm not the only one looking through your Favorites... I hope no one's looking through mine... :fear: :XD:

Yep, I just read that short conversation you had with Erkillers (who is my sister by the way).
If it makes you feel any better, I'm not currently looking through your favorites. Although there are probably plenty who do.

I can't remember where our conversation about this was, so I'll just add my Reply here...

I had finished that "challenge" drawing a few days ago, and now I've Sta.shed it.
This is the fattest I can make Eva currently without ruining her.
And you know what? Somehow I think this "exercise" actually helped me draw her better, because it was while I was doing it that I finally realized exactly why she was looking dwarf-like to me recently. Sure she's short, but that wasn't it. 

If you look at real human proportions, on average, a person's crotch should be very close to exactly halfway up their body. I think for males it's exactly there and for females it's slightly below halfway up. Cartoon females are supposed to be a little leggier than real ones, but, if you look at where Eva's crotch is on all her skeletal drawings, it's slightly lower than where it should be for if she were a real human! THAT's why she was looking dwarf-like! All the time I was measuring halfway up and then drawing her pelvis below that level. :facepalm:
I figured that out just in time to draw the right drawing at the link, so that one's "fixed". The unfortunate side effect of this discovery is that, with longer legs, I could make her fatter, so I need to not do that.:iconefacepalmplz:

So anyways, thanks for unintentionally causing me to find the problem with Eva. :happybounce:
DanVzare Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015
Yeah, that's probably the fattest you're going to get her.

Also, I'm glad you learned something new about proportions! :D
And thanks for telling me about that as well, I'll have to try and keep that stuff in mind.

I keep forgetting that she's your sister. I need to stop doing that. :stupidme:
The only place in my Favorites you'd need to look is the folder at the top where my fanart/trades/requests/commissionsbought are. :nod:

I just figured out that if I had kept doing the "Minecraft scientific method" (8 of something, then try EVERYTHING from nothing to the same item and every other item in your possession in the center) for discovering crafting recipes for long enough, I would have figured out how to make a music player. It's just like a Note Block- as we suspected, except it requires a Diamond in the middle instead of Redstone. 
DanVzare Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014
So you finally figured out how to make a music player.
It was made just like a note block but with a diamond instead? It kind of seems obvious now, I suppose. Especially since some of the best record players have a diamond tipped needle.

I'm glad you figured it out though. :D
You must have a lot of patience to figure those recipes out. You're probably one of the few people who actually figures them out as well. So I suppose you have bragging rights.
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Actually, I didn't figure the recipe out. I got it from the wiki after my first visit to The Nether. I wanted to know if it required any of the new materials I'd found there. Plus, I have a collection of discs I got from various situations, and I wanted to at least start playing them on my ranch. And I was tired of knowing it had to exist, but not knowing how to make it, like with a Nether Portal before it. But I WOULD HAVE figured it out eventually- IF I'd stuck to the method. Once I get everything settled on the ranch, I'll have so much stuff that I can test with, I'm sure I'll find a recipe for something I don't know already. 
Figuring out recipes mainly requires a lot of stuff, rather than just a lot of patience. I think it takes about the same amount of patience that alchemy in Skyrim does. But it's more fun in that you have to think about shapes, rather than properties.
DanVzare Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2014
You cheated!
I'm ashamed of you... very ashamed.

Just kidding. :D

Minecraft would be a pretty tough game with the internet, wouldn't it?
Then again in that reality, you probably wouldn't even know about half the stuff that did exist in the game, let alone how to make them.
Minecraft probably wouldn't exist at all either... soooooo. Yeah.

Well, I guess you just assumed I knew that ^^ ... but nope. I didn't! If I had known that then I would have guessed a Diamond sooner.

I now have a collection of Music Discs waiting to be played. :cd::bulletred::cd::bulletblue::cd::bulletgreen: Unfortunately, I don't have the white disc because it was blown up by a Creeper. THE CREEPER MANUALLY DETONATED, blowing up my disc! It was far away from me, and low on health, and it blew up as soon as it got to the disc, before I got the chance to approach it. Fortunately, that area that I told you about near my little house in the desert is a really convenient place to farm music discs, so I have several now. :D But I also still have the two I got when Creepers spawned inside a Skeleton dungeon. The second time I found Creepers in there I had a much smarter plan than the first time when I didn't think they'd blow up the Skeletons. :skullbones::explosion::facepalm:
