How to get more Popularity and PageviewsFame is something a lot of people want to get on dA.How to get more Popularity and Pageviews7 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Many people know this - you log in and have little to no new messages.
So you want to get known, want to get your pictures out there. Many pageviews tell you that many people have visited your site and have taken notice of you.
This is giving everyone a good feeling
So here are some suggestions to reach this goal:
In order to get you have to give. Browse through the categories you like the most, and pick the pictures you like and comment on them. Don't only comment on the most professional pictures, the artist is most likely too busy to answer them all. Your chance of getting noticed is bigger when you comment on the works of unpopular artists, as they are more likely reading and answering your comment.
Important: Don't spam. No one likes mediocre comments that could fit every picture. Most people will just ignore you then, plus you could get banned. And don't only comment on pictures, also com

Four worms and a lesson to be learned!!!!
A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add
emphasis to his Sunday sermon.
Four worms were placed into four separate jars.
The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.
The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.
The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup..
The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.
At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the
The first worm in alcohol . . . . . . Dead .
The second worm in cigarette smoke . . Dead .
Third worm in chocolate syrup . . . . Dead.
Fourth worm in good clean soil . . . Alive …
So the Minister asked the congregation,
"What did you learn from this demonstration?"
Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised
her hand and said . .

How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was.

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

Portuguese Poem...Quero sentir-me isolada no mundo,Portuguese Poem...7 years ago in Personal More Like This
Viver somente com os meus pensamentos,
Vividos e desvanecidos,
E talvez a dor de não te sentir ao meu lado,
Sou uma sombra em volta nas brumas,
Não digo nada,
Por muito que queira falar,
Não faço nada,
Por muito que queira tentar...
Fecho os meus olhos em silêncio,
Para arranjar uma solução,
Porque eu de ver, já estou farta,
Também dói-me o coração,
Já me julguei um anjo perdido,
Quando apercebi o que me tinha apercebido,
O que realmente sou,
Sou...Simplesmente uma folha que o vento levou...
Sou um beco sem saída...
Sou apenas um resto de uma pluma,
Que não foi feita para voar,
Mas sim para enfeitar...
Espero que não te surpreendas,
Com este poema desmazelado,
Pois este foi dedicado a ti,
Seu homem desleixado,
Espero que fiques feliz,
Por me teres deixado...
The 12 Days of ChristmasThe Real Meaning of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"The 12 Days of Christmas10 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
Much more than a haunting melody with nonsensical lyrics, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" was written by the English Jesuits during the 16th century as a catechetical device.
by Father Edward T. Dowling, S. J | Source: Catholic.net
I’m sure you have all heard the Christmas carol, “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” with its haunting melody. The carol dates back to the 16th century and its precise author is unknown. It has generally been assumed to consist of twelve nonsense verses built around a pretty melody. But in a fascinating article in Our Sunday Visitor (12/20/92), Fr. Gilhooley, a chaplain at St. Mary’s College, informs us that the carol was written by the English Jesuits of the 16th century as a catechetical device and it is far from filled with nonsensical verses.
The carol is akin to the apocalyptic literature of Scripture that used obscure symbols to hide its true meaning from t
Humor is HardCross-posted from my Wordpress.Humor is Hard1 month ago in Personal More Like This
There is a stereotype that people diagnosed with autism don’t have a sense of humor. I can’t speak for everyone across the spectrum, but as one guy on the Asperger’s side, I can vouch that this stereotype doesn’t completely apply to me. Whether or not my sense of humor is on the same level as the typical non-autistic, I’m confident that I have at least some ability to tell and laugh at jokes. But on the other hand, I do believe that being funny can be a challenging skill to develop whether or not you’re on the spectrum.
For myself, the problem often isn’t thinking of jokes so much as it is picking ones my audience will appreciate. This is especially the case if my punchline requires familiarity with the subject at hand. For example, a joke about anthropology, history, or paleontology would go over most laypeople’s heads, because they’d have no idea what the hell I’m talking about. A lot o

Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

Remember this: The Nazis started by burning books, ACTA/PIPA/SOPA started by burning websites. Megaupload was the first, it will not be the last. When the masses no logner have information, they will be easy prey for the politicians to mould and shape to their will.
Wikipedia has so much copyrighted but not authorized material that its, by my estimate, 15 million web pages will become victims of ACTA in short order if laws supporting the ACTA treaty, signed secretly on October 1, 2011, are passed. That is equal to the number of Holocaust deaths of all groups, not just Jews. It is a bastion of modern knowledge, and let's face it, knowledge is power, they take our knowledge away, they take our power away, where does our power go? To them, of course. Websites may not be equal to human lives, but to us, they are negligible compared to l
Marketing Materials For ArtistsEDIT: Well butter my biscuits, some of my gifs disappeared into the interwebs. I'll remedy this soon!Marketing Materials For Artists2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It’s no secret that us artists aren’t great at selling ourselves. The creative process is so much work it’s easy to assume that your work will be able to sell itself. Sometimes it can, but that’s not usually the case. Even if you aren’t interested in going commercial with your career (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with going that route), it is important have professional materials to present to clients, employers and galleries. If you aren’t interested in being “full time” with selling your artwork, I think it would still be good to consider putting together marketing materials as a means of creating good client relations.
This journal will include a number of things you may need in marketing yourself, but also if you are applying to art schools or for various jobs in art. I would also like to note that you d
