Still remember me? :D 3 months until my RETURN!!Hey my beloved friends!!Still remember me? :D 3 months until my RETURN!!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, my mission is coming to an end, as it seems. Oh maaan, how I will miss life as a missionary! 21 months have passed like as in a second, but I know many exciting things are also awaiting me after these two special years... I am excited to be able to meet my family and friends, to come back to Berlin, to see if and how life has changed at home. And I am super excited to be able to begin my life as a freelance artist! To be able to share my ideas, visions and my emotions with all of you again! I have missed you all alot, but now it is less than 3 months until I will return...
My mission has literally changed the way I think, they way I live, the way I am. It has made me a better person, a more complete person, a happier person. I loved and still love being able to spend my time serving others, instead of always serving my own ego. Isn't that what life is all about? To make others happy and thus become happy ourselves? I wanna

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

Hey there! jackofalltrades0097 here!
I just wanted to inform everyone that I FINALLY finished cleaning the Critique folder!!! It now has pieces that are open for critiquing, and that, should you want to have your work commented on, you can pick through and give feedback to.
We HIGHLY encourage you to submit to the critique folder! This not only encourages a healthy relationship between writers on DA, but it will push things along to make this a more active folder! I'm very excited about it, and I would love to see more people get involved!
Just a quick couple of reminders -
- Critiquing is not "I like this", "This sucks", or "Not bad". Comments like this will not be counted towards your 2 critiques.
- Please be patient. We only just now got things rolling on this, so it's going to take some time.
- YOU MUST LINK TO THE PIECES YOU COMMENTED ON IN YOUR DESCRIPTION!!! I cannot stress this enough!!! We will NOT be searching through every single deviation to

I am haunted in this holiday season by the opening lines of Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, his novel about a society 250 years ago coming apart in its seemingly irreconcilable divisions. Could it be these lines define where we have come to find ourselves today?

it was the worst of times,
in the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,

A Guide to Effective TaggingA new method to promote and discover art has been released to the community in the form of Tags! When submitting art, adding relevant tags to your deviations will help viewers discover art of interest to them and give your work more exposure.A Guide to Effective Tagging10 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
You can add tags based on a variety of things, be it subject matter, themes, medium used, fandom, or anything else you feel is important.
Use these tips to make the most of tags and help your art to find its audience:
Keep it simple. The less complicated the tag, the easier your art is to discover.
Be specific. If you take a picture of a rose, tagging it as #flower, while correct, won’t get your art as much attention as tagging it #rose will. You can, of course, tag both.
Tag efficiently. If your art is based on Lord of the Rings, tag it #LordOfTheRings and/or #lotr. You don’t need to tag every combination — t
How to Develop Your Artistic StyleI started dA back in 2006 doing simple digital photography. I had never taken a class and I had no knowledge on photography. My only formal training in art has been in water colour and pastels. These days I’m into photomanipulation. How did I get into it? Simple: deviantArt.How to Develop Your Artistic Style7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You’ve probably heard many people calling dA a wonderful community. It is, but it’s so much more than a community. DeviantArt is an art school. Yes, there are people who sign up and then put up masterpieces of work, but if you dig deeper into the community you see something amazing: progress. This is what makes dA great. To me, deviantArt has been my art school. I’ve learned from so many deviants on so many different forms of expression. And I’ve made friends.
There are some complaints about dA. Those are usually found in any community. Things usually based around generated artwork. (Too much anime/anthro/myspace shots and so on.) I think a majority of these complaints could be cut dow
