DD Suggestion GuidelinesUPDATE > Guidelines updated on 6th December 2013.DD Suggestion Guidelines6 months ago in Personal More Like This
As one of the current CV's assigned for Traditional Art Galleries, I am taking Daily Deviation suggestions - I can only feature artworks within Traditional Art categories.
How to suggest
- Send me a note with "DD suggestion" as a subject
- In the note, include a thumbnail of the work you are suggesting
- I encourage you to write a brief description of why you think this piece should be featured, but it's not obligatory
- If you wish to remain anonymous as a suggester, please let me know ahead of time
Personal process of going through my suggestions
- Before suggesting, make sure the artist hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months.
- You don't need to suggest more than one piece, I will always look at the entire gallery.
- If you wish to suggest more artists, please send each sugg

It's not just the artwork that tells you something about it's creator - on the internet, the way you present it is at least equally as important. Your painting can be a masterpiece, hanged in a local gallery, but as long as you post a blurry, badly cropped picture named "1564873" along with "..." in an artist's description, nobody will ever bother visiting your gallery. Creating a nice, representative profile page and setting a certain visual quality standard takes extra time and effort, but if you really care for your work (even if it's just a hobby), you should treat it with some respect.
I've already written a related article called The power of context that tried to explain how to place your work in a context in order to better connect with your audience, this one is focused

PE: Dealing with a negative feedbackPE: Dealing with a negative feedbackPE: Dealing with a negative feedback1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
"To escape criticism - do nothing, say nothing, be nothing."
Everyone wants to be praised for their work. It's the extremely rare individual who creates things and doesn't care how they're received. Dealing with criticism can be painful, but at the same time enormously helpful.
Let's begin with understanding the function that positive and negative feedback serve. Positive feedback (pointing out things you did WELL) increases commitment to the work you do, by enhancing your experience and your confidence, white Negative feedback (pointing out things you did WRONG), on the other hand, is informative - it tells you where you need to spend your effort, and offers insight into how you might improve.
With that being said, positive and negative feedback are affective and motivate differently, their impact varies from different peop

Absolute logical proof that god doesn't existBear with me, this is kind of complicated:Absolute logical proof that god doesn't exist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A. God is, by definition, illogical.
Therefore B. God can not (and does not) exist.
Wow, mind blowing huh? It's just so involved and complex. And it assumes so many premises! (It assumes one premise) But I assure you, the logic is perfectly valid and irrefutable.
Now, while the logic is perfect and irrefutable, you could possibly argue with the premise (Anybody have a definition of a god that is not illogical? If you do, then please do share.), but provided A, then B. God can not and does not exist. If A. is true, B. is true. If A. is not true, B. may or may not be true.
If you have an alternative definition of a god which isn't illogical, I would:
1. Like to shake your hand. You are a very rare breed: a logical theist. I can count on one hand how many I have met.
2. Be happy to have a civil and logical conversation with you on the matter.

A question for the Vampire Chronicles fansOkay so, I have seen a lot of pics and read some drabbles and fanfictions where Armand is playing with a video camera or is making videos of Daniel. My question is: Does Armand have a thing for the camera or anything? xDA question for the Vampire Chronicles fans1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Let me tell you at this point that I have just started reading the Vampire Armand and none of the rest of the books yet (but of course I will!!!). So, I don't know if anything is said in the books about Armand loving the camera so much or anything.

Sadly this chip is only good for recording and not for playback.
I've definitely long lost track of time, traveling with Captain from one part of the city to another.
It's probably not even September, but most likely October. Anyway it doesn't really matter, because it's always cold thanks to nuclear winter and it's always either snowing or "ashening" with rare instances of sunlight breaking through the thick, gloomy, black clouds overhead.
I've made many mistakes in my past, and I don't have much to look forward in the future, but yet I keep living for some reason, even if that reason is captain's continuous entertainment.
Everyday before I fall asleep I think of what horrible things the captain will do tomorrow. This week the bastard kept dressing me up in ridiculous outfits and giving me new "personalities to play". Where does one find the time to dig up costumes? Yesterday I woke up all dressed up like an old lady a

A Note To Myself
Jumbles and tumbles of words, mockingbirds
There's nothing new here, fly away
Find the edge of the day and lift it up
from the darkness
Build a city of dreams and live in it
Construct monuments to the Somethingness
The something that exists once you've peeled
all the layers away
Stop the yammering and hammering of worn-out ideas
Circling the same spot where nothing grows
Find the light and bathe in it until an Eden-like
Life, with a capitol 'L'

Even before i animated, i always had a habit of drawing friends into comics. In secondary school i would draw them all the time, if just to get a quick laugh or to insult another. Originally my group of friends in school were he cast of what i called 'Edd's World', most likely inspired by Wayne's World. Eventually i started using the internet more often and started using Neopets with Matt and others, which lead to me making a Guild and then a Guild website.. and that Guild was called 'Edd's Kill-a-thon'... yeah. A few weeks later after some angry threats, the admins removed my guild for having too violent of a title. So i made a new one and called it 'Edd's World' with a lame little Geocities webpage linking to cool stuff and funny pictures. Soon i started using an animated gif maker to make very bad anmated gif stories, mainly about stickmen dying and farts and what not. When i finally found a place to submit them (www.sfdt.c

The Lonely PathFebruary 13, 2013/by techgnoticThe Lonely Path1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.
Apparel Collection: Sunset BurnerThe celebration of letterforms is a timeless and globally universal art form. When pushed towards the abstract, the individual letters become more about the overall shape than the words they form or meaning. The graphic becomes about the marriage between the whole design and composition and the letterforms seemingly hidden in plain sight.Apparel Collection: Sunset Burner1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Contemporary graffiti is often done in this style. As you may know, artistic graffiti is powerful global art movement where artists choose more non-traditional ways to execute pieces and more publicly accessible places to display their artwork.
This specific piece is done in a linear Wildstyle fashion and symbolizes the wearer’s proclivity for pushing the boundaries of abstraction and taking risks with their work. In this garment, you can feel free to take your style, put it in a blender, and mix it up with your inspirations, influences, surroundings, and emotions.
