Don`t be RudeSo, been wanting to write one of these for a long time, i have made journals regarding this subject before.Don`t be Rude by Sortvind
So, Basically what i want to say is that people should show more support to the people who upload free-to-use stuff on this site.
Icons, wallpapers, themes, stocks, all free to use, all they ask for is a thanks or a fav if you use it, and they hardly get any!
I am not sure why it is like this, but it seems to be a common thing, in all these customize sections.
Just now i saw a wallpaper with 2000 downloads and 28 faves, 10 comments.
I see icons with 70 000 views, thousands of downloads, and 80+- faves.
Many of them write in the artist comment; "please show your support"
and we should!
Why should people who work hard for others keep on doing it if we can`t take a few sec to write thanks or a half sec to fav if we use or like it.
You can find things, legal, free, all they ask is some sort of reply, show your support and change this.
Thank you for reading

Hate Mary Sues? Don't we all!With the creation of several self-publishing websites such as Lulu and the general standard of what is deemed to be publishable declining, every thirteen year old girl and her pet goldfish believe they have what it takes to be the next big author. In an attempt to churn out a book series of six-hundred pages in one weekend, many juvenile wannabe authors neglect the very building blocks of their fiction: the characters.Hate Mary Sues? Don't we all! by dantesgirl
Most of us have heard the terms Mary Sue and Gary Stu before heck, they may have been aimed at us before but how many of us actually know the definition of a Mary Sue? We simply believe that a Mary Sue/Gary Stu is a badly-developed character, but are we aware of what defines a Mary Sue? From my personal experience, a Mary Sue/Gary Stu is a character who:
Has barely any [exploitable] flaws.
Is virtually perfect. (These two are pretty obvious)

Understanding Your StyleSUMMARYUnderstanding Your Style by heysawbones
This essay applies the computer science concepts of design pattern and anti-pattern to figure-based illustration.
Understanding Your Style is an illustrated guide/essay on style - not specific styles, or how to draw said specific styles, but on deconstructing YOUR style, and understanding it. Understanding Your Style approaches figure-based illustration/cartooning and style from a theoretical point of view. THIS GUIDE IS NOT HERE TO TELL YOU HOW TO DRAW! Instead, I talk about learning to spot mistakes in your own work. I offer examples of common mistakes one may come across while attempting to stylize their work, and theories on the thought processes behind those common mistakes.
Parts One and Two:
I will just suffice to tell you that I have loved the process of watching you come up with this, and the finished product is really, truly great. Sincerely helpful. This
