Let's start that DA's helpdesk is actually... not so helpful at all. 
My ticket more or less came back with a generic response. The so called bug is apparently already known for a for a full month and with that message my helpdesk ticket was closed :') 

As for now I've got some good stuff coming. Both articles (journals) and art. But it seems to make little sense to post them if half of the watchers doesn't even get notified (it basically feels like they fell off the face of earth), and the other half gets the notification with a 3 hour to 2 days delay. Not to mention that I stare at a blank page half of the time, because of the bugs. So I guess I have to postpone posting the really cool and awesome stuff until DA gets their shit back on track. Sorry guys T__T 

For now, a few small updates

First of all, I want to say that, among many other amazing artists, my work has been featured in the artbook of my dear friend Yuuza 
For more information on this artbook, its content, and how to obtain it.

Futhermore... random meme's :la:
50 random facts about me

01. I prefer writing over art, mostly for the reason because I think it's easier.
02. I've saved my drawings/writings from ever since the time that I was 6 years old.
03. As a kid, I've always wanted to be a writer when I grew up. It wasn't until I became older that I realized it was a near impossible career for a non native English person.
04. The sole reason why I started drawing, was because I wanted people to show what my characters looked like.
05. My desk is always somewhat messy. I can't be creative on a clean desk (Most bosses hate this aspect of me XD)
06. I own over 50 art related-related books. Most of them are how-to books on various subjects, like anatomy, color and environments.
07. Watching art related Youtube tutorials is one of my favorite ways to spend idle time. I don't really mind how good the artist is. There's always something to learn.
08. I started writing motivational texts in an attempt to motivate myself.
09. I have Google translate open in another tab whenever I write an English message or journal. English is not my native language and I don't fully master it yet.
10. I've made video tutorials. But I decided pretty soon it's not my thing, since I'm too shy to actually talk in English (The accent. The horrible accent. Arrrghhh!!)

11. I learned to know Yuki Kajiura's music through the anime hack//sign. And although I could never finish the anime (didn't like it that much), I've been a Yuki Kajiura fan ever since.
12. I've been playing Pokemon since the early Red/Blue games came out, and am in fact still a fan.
13. I watch a fair amount of anime, even though I never feel like making fanart for any of them.
14. I rarely make fanart, since I'm never an avid fan of anything for a long time. My liking's switch a lot of time and they usually switch fast. 
15. I see my creativity as a rather fluid thing that stems from raw emotion. No matter if I draw, design, write or code, it all comes from the same place. And in my mind it all blends together.
16. I wasn't any serious with visual art until 2010. It pretty much shows in my improvement meme. Everything prior to 2010 is the same shit all over again.
17. Most of my drawings are from a novel called Emion. It's a book I'm still writing and that's already 1000+ pages.
18. Most of my drawings take hours. I'm a terribly slow worker.
19. I actually enjoy drawing together with other people in real life. Unfortunately I don't know many people living close by that actually draw.
20. I want to be more active on Tumblr but I have a hard time figuring out how the thing actually works (and I'm usually too busy answering messages at DA. That too XD)

21. On contrary to popular belief, I was never actually awarded a Daily Deviation. Look! My DD gallery! It's completely empty! XD
22. This artwork was the one piece that got me seriously interested in digital art, and therefore holds a lot of memories for me. I still want to buy a print of it one day, if shipping costs weren't that expensive T__T
23. I never used HTML for my DeviantArt profile. Not because I don't know how to use it. But because I'm too lazy to sort everything out
24. I prefer the default DeviantArt journal skin as it's clean, and loads great in both the journal portal and on mobile. Many other skins lack that aspect (Again; too damn lazy to html one myself)
25. I have this odd fascination with statistics, that has led me to build a tool to analyse my watchers for no other reason than pure curiosity (I might publish results, if anyone is interested)
26. I've never actually done art commissions. I didn't want to do any extra work beside my full time office job. 
27. I'd like to do art commissions just once, out of pure curiosity just to see how they'd sell. I know, however, the obligations would totally kill me.
28. I think my character Sato is a horrible person, and I wouldn't want to meet him in real life.
29. I like writing about him in the novel because he is horrible
30. I created Sergei Kazimir and his love for fire, just because I wanted to experiment with a character that loved everything that I hated.

31. I'm currently a webdeveloper in real life. But I've done all kinds of jobs in IT, webdesign, graphic design, social media marketing, and alike.
32. I started programming because high school bored me to death.
33. I used to be a moderator on various Dutch internet forums, going back as far as 2002. That is where I got my first internet experience. 
34. Some of my earliest friends on the internet were hackers. I've been fascinated by hacking techniques and web technology ever since.
35. I've hacked. Though I've never destroyed something. Being in the web-building business it always made me sad to see something getting destroyed.
36. I know how to build a computer. I learned how to do so because I needed a new (faster) computer for school and wasn't able to afford a pre-build one.
37. I hate people that declare their selves "nerd" just by taking a selfie with over-sized glasses. Imo you aren't a real (computer)nerd unless you know how to either hack, code, or build a PC.
38. I've been severely internet addicted.
39. I still am. But my job provides me with a solid excuse now.
40. The worst thing about being without internet is being without Google. I use the website all day to basically look up anything and everything (Oh? Did I already mention I'm a curious person?)

41. I rarely watch movies because I have a hard time recognizing faces, and thus telling the characters apart.
42. I was called 'manga girl' at the first office where I worked. Not because I drew manga. But because I have a roundish face with big eyes.
43. I have a terrible fear of speaking in public.
44. I dress myself very mainstream. Part of that is because of the budget (I don't want to spend a lot of money on clothes). Part of it because I hate to stand out too much.
45. I'm afraid of fire, and I have been so ever since I was a kid. I don't even want to lit a candle.
46. I'm physically weak because of a wrist injury. I can only lift a few kilo's. Heavy shopping bags give me a hard time.
47. Despite my apparent outgoing nature, I'm a real introvert. I need alone time. And if I don't get it, I'll get very grumpy.
48. I love cooking, but only when I have plenty of time for it.
49. I own a cat.
50. My favorite emoticon here is :la:

That's it for today.
Expect more awesomeness as soon as DeviantArt fixes their bugs :happybounce: 

Traditional Tuesdays # 77

Tue Aug 19, 2014, 6:39 PM
**WARNING: Viewing these works of art may cause giddiness, elevated heart rates, and happiness in the pants(which could lead to blindness)! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!**


I'd like to welcome you to the seventy seventh edition of this article. The first Traditional Tuesdays feature came out on Nov. 15 2011, and I can honestly say that I didn't think it would last this long. The night I started this feature, I was bored and just browsing around the Traditional Gallery. I was finding all kinds great artwork, that for one reason or another I couldn't/wouldn't give a DD. It could be because they had a DD recently, but mainly it was for a link to go back and see what they created next, and if they took it to the next level. Now it's more for artwork that I no longer have time to DD, I can't DD everything! I still find the article fun to do, and I'll keep doing it until it no longer is. So.... here is eighteen works of art that I thought you should see. I can't trust all of you all with anymore awesomeness, you might hurt yourself! I hope you enjoy and find new things to love! Anyway, on with the show!

Poetry

she has rainy brown eyes and a muddy smilesummer sighs satisfied and gathers her scattered
self in a worn leather suitcase,
her constant cloudless mood
lets her be ready
for next year
and the year after that
they all lament at her leave
and openly wail at
 autumn's peevish arrival
(she was too shy to storm in as winter always did)
but she tries so hard to redress for
the chill of her heart,
painting avidly to give them the colors
she never understood.

The imagery of this piece is so beautiful 
and honest. It's a very subtle, 
yet striking piece of poetry.

love letters to introvertsi.
To the boy who prefers spending Friday nights at home:
the world does not understand how beautiful silence sounds
sometimes. 
As you crack open that book you've been waiting to read,
  or plug in your computer,
    or listen to music,
      or, 
         or, 
            or, 
or just maybe stare that the night sky from your bedroom window-
(please) remember what everyone else seems to forget;
that being alone does not always equal lonely--
and that sometimes no company is the best company there is.

To the girl who does not speak up in class: 
I was once you. 
You are not deficient, I promise, despite everyone telling you otherwise. 
You might be the only one who will ever know the universes 
tucked inside your head, 
because they are beautiful secrets you cannot bring yourself to share,
for fear that they might be vandalized.

What's eating you?"Hey man, what's eating you?" I asked.
"Nothing," Barry replied solemnly with a shrug of his shoulders. I didn't believe him for a second; there was obviously something bothering him, could no one else see it?
"Are you sure, man? I mean... You don't really... Look yourself."
"I'm fine." It started to leap and snap at his fingers. I watched it for a moment until it latched on, clamping down on his hand.
I winced. "I know there's something eating you, just tell me bro- it'll be alright."
Barry looked at me like I had offended him; could he not feel the thing working its way up his arm, swallowing him whole? "Kyle, I'm fine, there's nothing wrong with me."
He was entirely oblivious. How could this be happening? The thing was up to his shoulder now, still going. Was its belly endless? I couldn't find it in myself to swat it off, I was honestly scared stiff. What if his arm was nothing but a bloody stump at the elbow now? I didn't want to see that.

Leslie is a digital artist from Australia. She finds her inspiration in the teachings of Native American culture among others and her work is very spiritual.

Gallery Descriptions


Welcome to the Typography part of projecteducate's DeviantART Gallery Descriptions Month!

Today I will explain both the traditional and digital typography galleries on DA and I start off with Digital Typography. And I start off with the Traditional Gallery!
If you are interested into the background of typography, I recomment you read A Brief History of Typography, an article I wrote for a previous week at projecteducate.


When it comes to typography, you should be aware that it is everywhere around you all the time. There is bad Typography and there is good Typography. Unfortunately less of the latter and more of random thoughtless Typography around these days.

Typography is more relevant to Design than it is to Art, but that does not mean it cannot be Art!

I want to bring Typography to people's attention, make them aware of how important it is. We all want people to hear us, we want to be understood. And no matter how important your message, bad Typography can ruin it!

And Typography is ooooold. Like… Ancient. Literally. Ancient Rome has left us with some amazing remains of culture, including Typography. There is a lot of history in Typography, from Calligraphy and Scripts, over the Letterpress up to the Digital Age. But just because we are living in the Digital Age, it does not mean Traditional Typography is dead. Oh it's quite the opposite! It is more alive than not in a long time and the DeviantART galleries are living proof of it!

So, let's dive in :eager:

Traditional Art > Typography


Traditional Art


Work that is primarily created with traditional media and physical materials.
Editing colors and contrast and removing dust or noise, any general light retouching, and cropping photographs or scans of traditional art does not turn it into digital art!
Only if you massively alter the appearance of your traditional work or add more materials* to the mix, does it stop being traditional art.

* Photographs, textures, digital painting, vector elements, 3D etc.

Typography


Images created using traditional means where the subject matter is text using a variety of typeface styles.
If the main focus of your work is words and letters, you should probably submit it to typography.
Of course if there is 80% drawing and 20% typography in your work, it would be fine not to post there. "There is a letter, that's typography" is bullshit ;).







Calligraphy


Calligraphic characters or signs depicted in an artistic and skilful manner.


This is a millenia old artform, refined through the years and still as relevant nowadays as in the Middle Ages. There are many many forms to it, the common remainder is probably that is is a form of writing that requires a certain flow to your brush or nib.
It is not hand-writing, but it is also not the fine craft of lettering. It is somewhere in between. Even though the lines are often very thing and blurry between these three.

The two biggest fractions of Calligraphy are Western and Eastern, or Latin and Non-Latin. In Europe Calligraphy is traditionally created with a nib, in Asia it is more likely to be applied with a brush. Nibs and brushes can vary immensely in shape and size and thus can create an amazing number of different styles in Calligraphy.

Typographic Stencil Art


Typography created with the use of a stencil.


This is a very clear and strict gallery, that requires you to have used a stencil to create your work. It does not have to be graffiti, you can also use brushes or sponges to apply through a stencil, but you might as well use loose materials such as sand, and apply them with a stencil.

Other


This category does not really have a description, essentially anything that does not fit into the other two should go here. This can sculptural works of typography as well as ones created with uncommon traditional materials. Typographic collages, typewriter works, drawn and painted typography, letterings, etchings, stamps and so on and on. The list is really endless, any traditional medium can be used to create typography.

In doubt … submit to Other!
It may not be a shiny fancy gallery name, but it would be a shame for the other two galleries if they were spammed with works that don't belong there. Thank you :heart:


Naturally this small gallery tree leaves room for improvements :)
This is not forgotten and it is being worked on. Times change, art changes, galleries can change!

Gallery Descriptions

Welcome to the Typography part of projecteducate's DeviantART Galleries Week!

After earliers Traditional Typography it's now time to talk about Digital Typography :la:

Digital Art > Typography


Digital Art


Digital artwork originally created via the use of digital programs on a computer with a pen & tablet or computer mouse.
This should be self-explanatory, but for completeness I will add it here. Anything that is (eventually) created on a computer should go here. As mentioned in the previous article slight corrections to photographs or scans do not turn your traditional work into digital. A digital camera also does not.

Typography


Typography is the art and technique of arranging type, designing a type face or modifying letters.
Simple rule: does it contain letters or words? Then it is Typography.
Whether you submit it to that gallery, depends on how much text is in your work. The more text, the better it is suited to Typography.




A submission to a proper gallery can increase your chances of being seen by people who are actually looking for works like yours.





Calligraphy


Calligraphy depicts self-drawn characters or signs in an artistic and skillful manner, imitating traditional tools.


Digital Calligraphy imitates the use of traditional tools such as nib, pen, quill or brush to create text. It is most widely known and still practiced in its Japanese, Chinese and Arabic form. But it is also a western art form.

The main point of Digital Calligraphy is to create words and letters based on your illustrative writing skill and it is not based on existing fonts. You can use a tablet pen to support the natural way of writing, but tracing traditional typography with a mouse to turn it into digital work and refine and finish it on a computer is fit here, too.

Conceptual


Conceptual: Artistically displayed text with the main focus on its message.


The main focus of this category is art with a spelt out message. It can be a quote, fact or statement about politics, emotions or life. It is probably the most popular category since it is straightforward and easy to understand. Sometimes photos, vectors, 3D renders or drawings are included to underline the meaning. The main focus however is the message of the deviation.

Font Design


Imagery with the only purpose of presenting a self-made font. The font itself is the artwork and is displayed in a neutral and technical manner.


This category is open both to your own font creations as well as to specimen of already existing fonts.
Submissions here can be experimental and colorful, other can be simple and designs for actual fonts that are going to be created. (A specimen contains all the letters of a font in a non-illustrative manner.)

Not ever submission to Font Design has to have the possibility of being turned into font file (.otf or .ttf). This category is more experimentary and allows submissions of a more artistic approach.

Actual font files for download should be submitted to Ressources & Stock Images > Fonts!
Only submit fonts and allow them to be downloaded when you created them! This category is not for sharing "free" fonts, as most fonts require a licence fee to be used.


Text-based Imagery


Pieces in which type is used as a minor tool to create an image. The readable content of the visual is less important than the overall look of the piece.


This category is dedicated to images created using text or types. This has become a popular form of text art throughout the last years. The main message of this art is delivered through the image, not necessarily in the text. The text used to create the image can either be an existing font or self-made letters. The image can be anything from a portrait, object, scene or landscape.

Typography containing different styles and techniques.


As said before, if you are not sure where to submit and any of the other categories don't quite feel right, you should submit to the Other category :)
