Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
A cover for your OC or canon character's book or fan fiction. Comes in my usual style with the option of having black or lighter lines. Specify background, text, and colors for text. Price comes with one character and multiple silhouettes. Additional characters in full detail are 150 points each.
Comes included with full shading (like this: )
Full shading includes two layers of hard shading, two layers of soft shading, and two layers of highlights)
Anyways, basically realistic headshot EXCEPT it's full body, can come with any background, and extra characters are +500 points. May take a few weeks to do. Every flipping scale is done and there are no black lines (unless the coloring of your OC makes it happen).
Someone recommended that I should have a commission for a profile picture that's like my current one. Yes, EVERY LITTLE SCALE IS DRAWN IN. Text is free so if you want it, ask with the commission. DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A DRAGON
Background will be a gradient unless specified.
+60 for full shading
The cost for a realistic icon (rightmost image) is 150, send the extra 30 through donation or gift
Headshot art usually has no shading and is fairly simple. Add three points for one layer of shading. DOESN'T HAVE TO BE A DRAGON
Background will be a gradient unless specified.
A 50 x 50 animated pixel of a headshot of your character on a transparent background with a max of four frames. Usually includes blinking and a small object floating next to them. Will be the first letter of their name unless specified otherwise.

I mean, its not like i bought a fuk ton of mt dew at a rest stop...

waiting on jorgeh to send the 690000000 selfies we took XD
okay i swear im not high or anything... maybe i had mt dew.... yeah
i need a few days to get situated with the essay stuffs (yeah out school requires that we write stuff about DC and cheesy stuff about how you felt after visiting certain museums)
ah heck eating five guys with the guys was awesome (we got fat)
my mom is setting up an appointment with a doctor (finally) to check out that growth on my foot.
Also im self diagnosed with Lyme disease. It all makes sense. The memory issues and foggy brain? Arthritis symptoms? Dizziness, headaches, and fatigue? Not to mention I recall two tick bites in the last 2 months
The only issue is that we're required to walk like 50 miles on the D.C. Trip when touring so SHIT
The bus ride won't have wifi, and ipads aren't allowed. I'm not sure about hotel wifi, but its rumored not to have any
I'll try to get comms done by then, but if they aren't, you'll have to wait a bit ;-;
I separated her into a quarantine tank, she was okay at 2 in the morning
At six in the morning, she was dead. A green patch of something was growing around her gills.
I put the remaining female guppy into Apollo's tank, so the males wouldn't harass her.
Apollo seemed to approve of her, when I showed her to him outside of the tank, he just stared, and when I put her into his tank, he chased her, stopped in his tracks when he realized she wasn't a betta, and carried on with his life.
She seems a little scared of him though.
One of the guppies is concerning me.
Yesterday, we stopped by a petco to get some guppies for our 15 gallon (cycled for at least a week, no other fish in it) on my mom's request. My mom, however, did no prior research about male to female ratios, and on her request, we got 5 males and 2 females (though it should have been the other way around).
We let the bag they came in float in the water to adjust the temperature for maybe an hour and added water from the tank gradually to help them adjust. At about two hours, they were released into the tank.
They've been eating well, except for this one individual. A yellow female guppy with a ripped tail and a very skinny form. One of the males had harassed her earlier (chasing). I added more hiding places into the tank to help her out (my mom forbid separating her into a permanent different tank since more filters and heaters were 'too expensive'.)
She swims a lot, but stays close to the surface and hides around the filter. However, today she has been worrying me. After taking no food whatsoever for the last two days, being harassed by males, showing really red gills, and hiding, I put her into one of those cups bettas come in for separation and medication.
Now, i plan on cleaning out my 1 gal so I can offer her a better place to stay while I inspect her, but as of now, she's in one of those cups (I would let her live with one of the bettas, but I'm afraid Apollo or Aurum would attack her or get sick).
I treated her with a bit of Bettafix since it was the only medication I had on hand, and I figured it was similar to melafix.
Its been about 15 minutes since I isolated her, and the red around her gills has gone down a bit. One of my friends who had stopped by remarked, and I quote, "she looks defeated", cough rosette--chan, cough.
She's been having stringy poop as well, which is a symptom of parasites.
This is also posted on the Betta forums.
Housing: How many gallons is your tank? 15 gallons Does it have a filter? yes Does it have a heater? yes What temperature is your tank? 78 degrees F Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration? The filter gets the water back to the tank via the top, so some air comes in with it Does your Guppy have tank mates? What kind? She has 6 other guppies living with her, 5 of which are male.
Food: What food brand do you use? We're using the Aqueon tropical flakes Do you feed flakes or pellets? Flakes Freeze-dried? No (thinking about giving them freeze dried bloodworms later in the week) How often do you feed your Guppies? How much? Twice a day, about two small pinches each feeding Maintenance: Before your Guppy became ill how often did you perform a water change? Hadn't, it was the tank's first fill What percentage of water did you change? 100% Do you vacuum the substrate or just dip out water? N/A atm What additives do you use? What brand of conditioner? Tetra's normal water conditioner
Water Parameters: What are your water parameters? Please give exact numbers. If tested by pet store please get exact numbers. "Fine" or "Safe" won't help us help you. Important: Test your water *before* the regular water change; not after one.
The store tested, but didn't give exact number, only saying certain things were safe. The employee noted that the water was a little on the alkali side, but not too dangerous. Sorry I couldn't provide more info. The water was tested yesterday.
Symptoms and Treatment: When did you first notice the symptoms? The first time I (attempted to) feed her, yesterday How has your Guppy’s appearance changed? Her gills got a little less red after I treated the water with bettafix, otherwise, nothing How has your Guppy’s behavior changed? She's been 'defeated' looking ever since I got her, but I'm sure she has more to her personality. Is your Guppy still eating? No, she swims away from any food I offer her, and she is very thin now Have you started treating your Guppy? If so, how? I treated her with Bettafix Does your Guppy have any history of being ill? Not that I know of How long have you owned your Guppy? Was he or she ill or suffering some sort of damage when purchased? For about two days, she was suffering before I purchased her likely.
My mom suggests that we 'return her back to the store and get a new fish', but I don't want to give up on her. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
While she may just be stressed from the petstore-new tank adjustment, I want to help her in any way possible.
(tried to offer a bloodworm, but she ignored it) (ripped fins)
no images of stringy poop, but I'm worried she has parasites
remember in this deviation when i promised art this weekend???
miiiighht not be able to get to that
unexpected change in plan today.
originally, i was gonna get guppies, go to drawing class, come back at 3 and draw until dinner
but then my mom invited people over
including two kids about my age (one a year older and one like 10 months younger)
and they came at like 3
and stayed until 10:54
because we taped a fart machine (sound player) to an ev3 robot we drove around the house and pranked people
then wii sports (the 2008 version with AMAZING GRASS GRAPHICS)
then we pigged out on chinese food since our parents decided to cook a heck ton
then watched random youtube trash
on the guppy side of things, so far so good. I planted some java ferns and Bolbitis to provide hiding spaces, as well as duckweed as a floater and a piece of coral we've had in Shale's fishtank since three years ago. Its shaped like an arch, so it provides hiding space.
I'll deal with naming the guppies tomorrow. They seem to be settling in well, considering the offset ratios.
I tried to get some java moss from our pond (yes i found JAVA MOSS in there), but there were too many parasites to remove. I found like, five aquatic worms, a ton of water fleas, small crustacean things (look like really small shrimp), and some snail eggs on a 2inch x 2inch piece.
Might end up going back to the store to get some moss when they're back in stock.
Because of the male's harassing behaviors in general and the baby-eating thing, i want to keep the tank as well planted as i can. I have to manage 2 bettas, 2 turtles, and now 7 guppies, so i may not have time to get the babies out of the tank very often. Add my homework load to that.
Coddarn mom and her fishy superstitions about nine fish somehow bringing luck into the household.
Worst case scenario, i'll post some quick flat colored stuff or doodles
But yeah im drawing Albatross for a contest .-.
also, my mac has been crashing a lot recently, so I can't record speedpaints ;-;
Honestly just look at this piece. The lighting hits true, and the colors really bring out the mood. The litter in the ocean is clear, and the impacts upon marine life are illustrated.
