My DeviantART StoryBandwagon time!!My DeviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
So I decided to share too, however, I don't really feel like shoving JUST my artwork up here is gonna do any good. You al already watch me, so you have seen my stuff. :L So instead I'll be sharing stuff I have faved through the years. XD
Back when I joined dA in 2007(?) I was really in my anime phase. However it was Exileden that made me want to join dA. I saw many of her fanarts of Okami and I wanted to be able to see more. A few of my friends were also on deviantart, so I joined. Inuyasha, Wolf's Rain, Outlaw Star and Ranma 1/2 were my biggest offenders. rofl Yes, Offenders, because they stole all my time. From homework, I was in 11th grade during the 2007-08 school year. I used to draw a lot of that. This phase lasted a year or so. So here are some of my badly photod artworks from back then:
And some of my favorite fave

In 2014, DeviantArt turned 14 years old. Fourteen years is a long time, some of you reading this may be younger than that. I've gathered some historical information with the help of Moonbeam13 and some members of the Community Relations team to help enlighten those of you who have joined in recent years and missed out on a chunk of DeviantArt's life.
I hope you enjoy taking a step back in time!
Please note: it is extremely difficult to track down some events in DeviantArt's history (in particular, the first few years) and that some dates are only approximate.

A Valentine Birthday Wish from +SpyedAll of my birthdays have always been about stuff. Stuff I don't want, stuff I definitely don't need. This year for my birthday on Valentines Day I want to focus the love I have from my friends and family to build a WELL in a developing country. They cost $5000. And for the next 20 years this well will provide fresh drinking water to a village.A Valentine Birthday Wish from +Spyed3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Angelo's words...
All of my birthdays have always been about stuff. Stuff I don't want, stuff I definitely don't need.
I'm surrounded by very giving people, and I'm always honored by how gracious my friends are, but when a guy gets to a
certain age, you kinda just buy the video games and books and music right when you want them, you know?
This year, I decided to do something a little different for my birthday. I was introduced recently to a charity
called charity: water, and I love this organization. The people behind
How to get noticed on deviantARTHi there!How to get noticed on deviantART6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
People asked me several times when I've became 'popular' on this site and in which way. I must admit I smelled a bit of envy in their tones, but the thing that troubled me more was that they didn't think that my work was worth all the pageviews I got over the years.
Well, I wanted to explain this little thing right now... dA costed me a lot of work! It wasn't a 'BOOM! POPULAR!' thing at all for me.
I had to study other people's methods too and to work hard on improving my art, and it wasn't easy. At all!
So tonight I'm sharing with you some methods to get attention by dA community.
Don't take them as unquestionable laws, just take them for what they are... Hints.
They worked for me but they may not work for you.
And now that you have a dA account...

Of Voyages of Destiny: and Fish Fries
As kids, we could never understand why rich people would hang boring paintings of ships side-by-side with their portraits of beloved dead ancestors.
We didn’t understand this was not an admiration of the boat, not like the Porsche poster in my brother’s bedroom. This was about the valor of The Voyage, the courage to carry the family treasure across an ocean to begin a new life in a new land. A problem at sea meant a ho

his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

Nuances of an Annual Ritual
Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

It can take up to 14 days for your money to end up in paypal.
I donīt know if many people know about this or even how to do it..~♥

How to take point commissions and still earn REAL FRESH MONEY! :iconkissinguplz:
What you need:
Be a Premium Member BETA TESTER
Have a Paypal
That easy! :iconba-kyunplz:
However if you are going to do this dA takes a part of the money you earn. Around 20 Points on Every 80 points [I think]
Which makes you earn only 60 points even if you sell for 80.
Thatīs why I suggest you think that 1 Dollar = 100 points
Instead of 80, that way you wonīt lose anything on it. *w* ~

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
LifeIt's funny how your life can change at a moments notice, it seems to just like shitting on me lately. I lost my job the other day due to company wide lay offs, and now my car appears to be fucked. Although it's not all bad (except for my car.. that sucks because god knows how much I will have to pay to get it fixed..). I was rather unhappy there anyways so perhaps this is just an opportunity to turn my life around and get in on the path that will make me happy. Time will tell, but for the next bit I'm going to be focusing on getting myself into a better frame of mind.Life1 year ago in Personal More Like This

So, there's a petition to 'save' DerpyAre you fucking kidding me?So, there's a petition to 'save' Derpy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm all for fandoms speaking out about their shows, but this is, quite frankly, pathetic.
"Derpy" was a bad choice of name because, whether or not you like it, it does get associated with being mentally handicapped. You personally might not make the connection, but there are people who do, and that's not a good image to project onto children - you know, the real target audience?
It was good, however, as a jokey-fanon name for a background pony, because quite frankly, that's all she is! She doesn't contribute anything to the series or any particular episode plots, she is just one of many different models that happen to crop up every now and then when a crowd is needed.
If anything, you "bronies" should be grateful that the creators have given her more presence in the show with that scene to begin with, you know? They appreciate that she was something of a fan favourite, but giving her the name Derpy was something they should have c
