Words To Live ByWords To Live byWords To Live By3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"To help us bring benefit to others through our words and actions, it is useful to cultivate an attitude of sympathetic joy in others’ achievements and good fortune. This attitude is a powerful antidote against envy, which is not only a source of unnecessary suffering on the individual level but also an obstacle to our ability to reach out and engage with others. " -Dalai Lama
Those are some pretty awesome words aren't they? Think about that for a second, now think about it how it relates to you as an artist. Look beyond the "how many favs did I get on this" and instead look at what is around you, what others are creating, photographing, capturing and be inspired from what you see, not envious because someone got that pat on the back which you didn't get. If you see something which you like, tell the artist, let them know exactly what you like in the piece and what stands out the most to you. Little words like those

when you grow up
and as i watch each flake of you fall from my hands
teach me how to fall gracefully
teach me how to hide in the atmosphere
and you're an empty helicopter
with only the wind to rescue
and when the wind comes
you can land anywhere
and anywhere can be the sea
and the sea can be the memory
that there is no rift between anywhere
and you are an ampersand
with no nouns to stand between
you connect all the spaces
there are no words for
your molecules are continents with no name
their coastlines know
that there is no such thing as discovery
and your breath of knowledge
can be the library of the wind
let the current take you wherever you need to go
and just know, that if you were to collide with concrete
it is not a crash
it is but a silent whispering in your own bones
buried under the earth's skin
and you are home
you are home.

ARTISTIC NUDES AND FETISHGallery Info: Artistic NudeARTISTIC NUDES AND FETISH3 years ago in Personal More Like This
High quality fine art photography that makes use of a nude or partially nude human subject.
That is how deviantArt defines Artistic Nudes which for me is vague. I feel there should be more definition than that, that it should help the users submitting to the gallery determine if it's porn or not. How would we do that, though? How could we redefine it if at all?
How would you define "Artistic Nude"?
:iconquietchildae: This one might get me in trouble with some people, but... I don't. What's art to me isn't art to someone else, what's my cup of tea, other people think is pornography. I also strongly believe that everyone has to start out somewhere, and while they might not be doing gorgeous black and white, beautifully composed and lit images, who knows what they might be capable of in the future? Rather than telling someone their work isn't art, I prefer to encourage people in improving their craft. Of course, with nudit
Year-long absence, year-long project.Upon completing my 365 day project in 2013, I had plans to create another year lapse project, something to keep me on my toes everyday. The 365 seconds project caught my eye and I’ve been taking clips everyday through the whole 2014. Most of it was spent in Melbourne, a(n almost) full year away from Malaysia, some days were static, slow, and uneventful, some days were exciting, happening, full of surprises, some days had so many cool stuff happening I couldn’t just settle for one clip.Year-long absence, year-long project.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
This has been said often enough, but 2014 has been a pretty rich year for me.
In 2014 I turned 21 three times, celebrated Chinese New Year Eve at a 7-Eleven in Taiwan, suffocated from pink powder, had my first art exhibition, joined MUMSU as a committee member, started to understand the concept of Friday Nights, spent close to a month backpacking in New Zealand, dove off a ledge 400m above Queenstown with only a harness tied around my waist, experienced falling snow for the first time, t

Just the odds of me existing are hardly any.
While some might call that being unlucky because
existing can be big pain in the ass, I call myself lucky because
I also happen to be naturally positive. Now what are
the odds of existing and being of positive nature?
But I'm even luckier than that, because I wouldn't have
survived my birth if it wasn't for the doctor who saved me.
"Damn Lovie, you're so lucky it's ridiculous!"
I'm so lucky I don't have any serious conditions.
I'm so lucky I was born in this particular place.
I'm so lucky that my parents are kind and loving,
I'm so lucky to live in a beautiful country with clean and
hot waters and heart warming people. Oh my I'm so pampered
I'm so pampered I have a nice bed to sleep in, I have roof
over my head.. not to mention the bath tub. I'm so lucky I was

lucky I can get out of bed on my own and wipe my own ass.

buried in waterafter the chaos of the car accident faded into greywashed memory, she says she can still feel both feet sometimes when she sleeps. phantom limbs and where cartilage between ankle and heel used to meet, bridges in between the space of her dreamspace, lucidity blooming to its fullest, apparition-filled aorta bursting the flames of inward gore, empty phrases strung together again (forcefully) to keep pages around the spine intact, two lost souls collapse on the bed, and the sense of purpose evaporated sometime between glancing at the rims of the lemon tea and taking the 22nd sip.buried in water2 years ago in Personal More Like This
knowing the end does not equal to understanding the end, but we're all standing at the world's end with the deceptions that sate our innate propensity to know things. the pavement is lined with unpolished crystals on the underside, and in the walls of our arteries hangs unimaginable paintings

Introduce yourself! Who are you?
My name is [undisclosed] for various boring anonymity reasons. I live in the UK and I guess I'm some sort of photographer model combination stuck inside a human male's body.
When and why did you join Deviant Art?
It's coming up to my second anniversary, which is absolutely insane. I started taking pictures for my own pleasure partly out of boredom but also because I was having a rough time with my self-image due to a year of unemployment and waning mental stability. I took a few very low-end, crap topless shots that I put up on a gay Hot Or Not type site and I got an absolutely unprecedented amount of positive comments (along with the entirely precedented avalanche of negative ones) and thinking there might be something to this whole "fat guy showing skin on camera" thing, I decided to try it properly and try deviantArt as an outlet. It hasn't been a choice I've regretted.

Why Not Blame The Victims?First of all, when I got into Photography it was at the beginning of the social media explosion, My Space was King then. A friend told me, "You have to make a profile and get on there," so I did. The one thing that really struck me about that medium was the abundance of self portraiture. I was younger than I am now, shy, and introverted, so there is that to keep in mind, but I kept thinking... Is it about Vanity, Narcissism, Arrogance? I mean I could look around and see so much beauty to photograph, nature, landscapes, places, animals, other people, I just had no desire to shoot myself, I didn't understand it.Why Not Blame The Victims?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
At some point, curiosity got the best of me, I needed a profile picture anyway ... I have no real reason or explanation, I just took a self portrait... then, eventually I took a nude self portrait, and I think I described this before, but the reality is everything changed. It wasn't about the vanity, arrogance, or the narcissism of seeing your own reflection. There was somethi

my bones already want to divorce each other and
there's this infinitely expanding pair of eye circles marking their territory
(whose radius reigns for miles onward, miles of skill cells aligned, arbitrary)
i want to drown these mathematical numbers in mercury but the whole world seems to be made of them. so clatter-clunk i shift the matter in my mind to leave enough room to cram in these nonsensical formulas, lifting up the dust by chance.
i guess if this body of mine was merely the second incarnation out of a hundred, i'd waste it to fulfill my natural ecstasy (inhaling madame psychosis underwater) and writing transcendental poetry about metempsychosis and the sharing of souls,
and contemplate how, inherently, our stash of human souls available in this world is a constant recycling of rearranged soul sequencing
maybe even dive into absurdism and cross out the illogical dead-end parts and replace them with certain
