February Feature.Second month of the New Year... My priorities now reside in my health--mind, body and soul as well as my success in school which will be quite demanding. I'd like to use my free time for creative pursuits, but I'm just not sure how much time that will be. That being said, I may be more absent for the time being. However, I'd still like to find time for my features and thank everyone for their support! Here is a feature containing my recent favourites, those who have been kind enough to donate to me, some who have featured me, and some of my watchers (101-110):February Feature.4 years ago in Personal More Like This

5%If you're reading this now, it means you're roughly in the 5%. Most people who go online to read about comics will end up reading previews and "top 10" lists--subjects we all, or course, enjoy. But the articles/blogs that critically analyze our industry are usually only read by two types: people in the biz whom are affected by this stuff, and the few readers who are interested in reading more than word balloons when it comes to comics.5%4 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I'm not knocking people who don't care to read these articles. All readers are contributing to the industry with their buying power, and I'm thankful for them, even if they're not in the 5%. I admit, if I had a normal 9-5 job and a boss that was kicking my ass 5 days a week, I might not have the tolerance for these sorts of articles either.
That being said, I think we need more of these articles/blogs written from different points of view--more from creators especially. The 2010s will likely be r

New Contest, New Kiriban [closed]•UPDATE 4/1/14New Contest, New Kiriban [closed]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
OC contest closed. Winner TBA
Sorry for the dead air on my page. Rough seas. Hopefully back to normal soon.
•UPDATE 3/14/14 and 3/20/14
I'll be out of town tomorrow through Wednesday of next week. Communication via comments, notes, and email will still be possible while I'm gone but I won't be working on, sending out, or posting any art (…or doing anything that would be a pain in the butt without a real keyboard). I've also notified everyone with an active commission with me of this individually.I'm back at my computer and regular activity has resumed.
This is also a reminder that my OC contest closes at the end of this month. There's still plenty of time to enter if you're interested and want some free art from me. (Details below.)
Happy Pi Day, everyone!
Group Spotlight vol. 4Hello everyone,Group Spotlight vol. 41 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I've started a new series of features where I spotlight a group that contributes to the DeviantArt community somehow either by promoting unknown art, doing regular features, holding competitions, promoting critique/comment systems, showcasing resources to help members improve, etc. I'm hoping to possibly bring to light some great groups here on dA and possibly attract them new members or watchers, by showcasing deviations from their gallery after a brief introduction of the group in itself.
Enjoy and please!
Cute Quaint Quirky is "a fun, new group all about finding the cutest, quaintest and quirkiest bits of art out there on dA! We're looking for clear, creative photos with a vintage feel and a pop of life. We like photos with a warm, whimsical, soft, and dreamy feel that adds a new depth to photography for us."

Photography Newsletter This month I'd like to talk about a recent Daily Deviation. It was a self suggestion, I know that the photographer won't mind me saying this and he's immensely proud of his work, that much was clear when we talked.Photography Newsletter 2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
hotamr suggested his Colours of Ramadam series to me and as soon as I saw the image I responded that the series was nice, but it looked very much like photo-manipulation. So hotamr took the time to walk me through all of the steps that he took, the lengths he went to and the hours he spent on getting the final product. I urge you to read his interview at the Phoblographer for more information. Check it out here. It was nice to be reminded of the traditional lengths that can be taken to achieve a shot rather than be walked through the history of Photoshop editing. Both do have their merits - what do you prefer?

Swimming in Weeds and Wonderment Hello Everyone! I'm finally back from 2 weeks of county and state fairs for my kids! I came home to gardens filled with weeds and Dahlias blooming along with much much more trying to fight its way out of the jungle. I have many photos to post and I'm trying to catch up fast before more adventures come my way. I don't mean to bombard you all with my photos, but it needs to be done, my stash is overflowing. So enjoy my new posts and enjoy the heart of summer!Swimming in Weeds and Wonderment1 year ago in Personal More Like This

This month the general photography CVs - Kaz-D, Mrs-Durden, and (as of the 13th) myself - set a total of 67 DDs across nearly every gallery we cover! Many thanks to everyone who's suggested to us, and as always we need more suggestions so don't be shy! Our guidelines are linked at the bottom of this article, and we tend to get a lot more People and Portraits suggestions than anything else so bonus points if you send us great pieces from the "weird" galleries. Self-suggestions are always welcome if you have a piece of your own that you think we should see!

Monthly Photography NewsletterFor many of us, there's a reason why we are photographers and why we choose to stand behind the camera. We have much more purpose there and we lack a desire to be seen (some of us) and we have no desire to be recognised by face, but merely by name. So what do you make of the Huffington Post's recent article revealing the Photographers behind many iconic images? Check it out here. You may recognise many of the photographs that the photographers are holding, but do you recognise the faces of the artists who framed them? Probably not. You've got the likes of The Beatles, the Afghan Girl, the World Trade Centres at the moment of impact and much much more. But we never really know who is behind those captures - until now. Would you like your face to be well known for the images you take? Or do you prefer being behind the lenMonthly Photography Newsletter6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
