How To Enjoy Life On DeviantArtCommunity WeekHow To Enjoy Life On DeviantArt3 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There have been many articles written about this subject, but my article today touches on something a bit different: communication and its difficulties, and how to overcome them.
DA is like a class full of foreign people
It's as simple as that: DeviantArt is a mixture of cultures (which is a beautiful thing). However, we always tend to fall in the habit of considering everyone similar to us, or coming from our same background and culture: that's because in real life, most of the people around us and most of our friends are exactly that. We share with them a hometown, school courses, workplace, a "history" - and we can see them: just their facial features can tell us about their heritage and about things that maybe we could or should avoid saying or joking about. But on DA, very often, the only thing we share with people who become our watchers, or deviants that we interact with in the forums or groups, is

DeviantART, you're HOMOPHOBICSO WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME IS THAT THIS IS OKAYDeviantART, you're HOMOPHOBIC7 months ago in Personal More Like This
BUT THIS IS A NO-NO?
Many homoerotic artists are being banned on DeviantART, even though they never break the site's rules regarding mature content. Many heterosexual porn artists do as they please and nobody gets hurt, so why should the homoerotic artists get banned for not breaking the rules? I am aware there are some fucked up homoerotic content in DeviantART too, but that's not my point - the arts like the ones I'm showing here are the ones being banned!
- UPDATE -
deviantART Staff realitysquared commented on the issue:
Need Exposure For Anything? Look Here!(CLOSED) If you have any of the below listed items that need exposure, please comment with appropriate information listed I'm looking for at least 100 pieces of the following:Need Exposure For Anything? Look Here!(CLOSED)1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Groups that need exposure (please give me the :dev: code and a short description)
Artists/artworks that need exposure (please mention their name/use thumbs for artworks if possible. I'm looking for unknown artists mainly)
Contests that need exposure (please link/thumb me to the article and tell me what the theme is and the ending date)
Feel free to tell your friends about this too/ this article, the more people that participate, the better
In case you are wondering what this is for, I received 100 spots in a journal feature to expose whatever I wish, so I wanted to extend it to all of you!

If you suggest someone else, I will credit you as the suggester, unless you don't want me to. I especially need literature suggestions!

222th Day on DA (Admiring your own artworks)Yes I am an artist like everyone else is here but I do stand from an art admirer/buyer point of view at times as this is a crucial point that almost no one really realize or even take notice at all . No I am not kidding with you , this journal is all about admiring your own artworks and the benefits it comes with it ..222th Day on DA (Admiring your own artworks)7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Change your perspective , you are the buyer/ viewer , admirer etc now
If you are going to keep on telling yourself that your art is ugly , its not nice etc , try to change your perspective for once . Like what i tell everyone , one man's meat is another man's poison . You may hate it to the bones but from another person's point of view , it could be a masterpiece . Dump that artist critique inside you , be someone else now and we shall start this incredible viewing session
Admiring artworks , how do I do it ?
You are no longer the person that painted this artwork so first and foremost , Si

You can read here about her story:
Within days I need to pay my bills that are 6268 sek (877.21 usd, American dollars) and I only have on my bank account 3248 sek (454.66 usd) which means I am missing around 3000 sek (420 usd) to pay my rent, insurance, electricity and internet.
I can't sleep at night because I stress so much, I have no idea how to get the rest of the money. My parents have already helped me. I am so scared of being homeless.

'Disability' is not 'deficit'.Today, July 14th, is Disability Awareness Day.'Disability' is not 'deficit'.2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
People who do not have disabilities are fortunate in some ways; for example, they don't have to worry about whether they will be able to exit a burning building, wake up with excruciating pain, or have to choose between purchasing expensive medications that can keep them alive and paying their rent. However, please do not pity those of us who do, for having a disability does not automatically make someone less "lucky" than others.
It has nothing to do with luck.
I realize from firsthand experience that having a disability is extraordinarily challenging. Living with pain, as one example, must be beyond imagination. Living with suicidal thoughts and not knowing whether you will wake up in the morning because of all the medications you have to take for your disability is terrifying. It takes a lot of strength sometimes just to get up in the morning and face a day that is undou
