The Reason I Do ArtThe Reason I Do ArtThe Reason I Do Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ask anyone in the community why they do art. I’m sure that you’re going to find a variety of answers, but that they’ll come back to the same things: because they love it, it helps them express themselves. Art is awesome, because it does allow us to do these things. It’s certainly a part of the reason why I do art. Other reasons? Because I like pretty things, and want to create them. Because I get so excited every time I have a photoshoot or every time I pull up those images onto my computer. Because that moment when you go to pick up your film after waiting for 24+ hours to see how they turned out is just so, so sweet. Because no matter how good I become at it, I can always get better. I’ll never stop learning. The final reason? Because I have to. It’s an urge in me that I just cannot quell.
Something makes me sad, though. What makes me sad is when I see a person, a fellow artist, quit.
Never give up on your photography! Today over on photoblog I examined why you should never give up on your photography in spite of the criticism you might receive telling you that you should just give up or stop photography all together. No matter what people say to you about your work, never ever give up. I invite you all to read it, I know there are some of you right now reading my journal who feel this very way.Never give up on your photography!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Breasts and NipplesBreasts being gender specific is a myth. Breasts are fat deposits and nothing more (or implants). What of women with very small breasts, or breast cancer survivors who have none, or women with artificial breasts, or men with implants, or women with prominent pectoral muscles, or men with oversized pecks, or obese men with full large pendulous breasts, or men with hormone irregularities, or transgendered individuals, or third gender individuals, or lactating male infants? At what age does the nipple become obscene? Puberty? 18? What if the breasts are covered but the fabric is see through? What if the body is painted? Maybe in latex? Why does a nipple pasty make a breast suddenly inoffensive? It is the nipple after all that we all share in common. Speaking of common, women have always outnumbered men on this planet, so why is the majority of the world's population taught that their bare torso is an obscenity?Breasts and Nipples3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Reginkunnr "Divine Origin"
The arctic mountains is a harsh aggressive territory to live in but it has its perks. There are no other large predators living here except Liulfrs. The largest prey, the musk ox, can be found here, roaming in large herds. The musk ox is famous for forming large circles to protect their young, but this prey is slow and much smaller than a Liulfr which makes the adults vulnerable to these predators aswell. The snow remains on the ground even during summer season but despite its harsh climate it is truly a beautiful place to live at. Liulfrs has traveled up these mountains for decades, there may be something else that is luring them out besides the mysterious northern lights. Ranulfr, the great wolf himself, also said he felt he belonged somewhere beyond the
From 500 to 20.000 watchers...... in just one year.From 500 to 20.000 watchers...2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was a cold day in February. I can still remember that day.
It wasn't that busy at my job. Just another day of mostly waiting for feedback. So I took the liberty to surf around the internet for a bit. Like every day before, I checked DeviantArt. I had posted some art some while ago. I submitted it to some groups, but didn't quite get the response that I hoped for. Let alone; the feedback. It's hard to get feedback on your art. Nowadays most people just fave and run, or tell you that your work is awesome (which is sweet, of course) without any further explanation. Most of the art forums that I used to reside on, where either dead, or I'd outgrown the user-base so much that I was at the point that there weren't any more talented users that could give me feedback anymore. If I had to wrap it up in just one word: Frustrating. That's what is was.
Of course I had my idols on DeviantArt. Famous people like yuumei en sakimichan whose watchers hit those astronom

Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer

Collection: CannibolCollection: Cannibol1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Cannibol is one of the most creative talents whose art you will ever have the pleasure of discovering. Emerging from the rough world of tattooing, his present art in its many forms (watercolors and other traditional paint media, photography, assemblage, body art, sculpture and mask-making) all seem to be informed by a foundation in rebel tattoo art. His art style recalls classic Mexican muralists, had they chosen skateboarders and punk rockers as subjects. Both aggressive and sardonic, his art suggests suppressed screams of rage against the system, rechanneled through a powerful and diverse arsenal of artistic weapons to rain down blows against the machine.

We're almost done with June, and the Daily Deviation Suggestion Drive has been a rousing success already! But who are these people you're bombarding with pretty art to feature? What do they think of Daily Deviations? And what else do they do in the community?
This group interview was created to help reveal the ways DDs get chosen, who prefers what, and to basically de-mystify the whole process! So get your popcorn and settle in for some devious insights!
Why are suggestions from the community important to the DD selection process?
:iconthemaideninblack: They are important because the community should have a say in what gets features. The community isn't a passive part of the website, it's active and as such, it should actively promote its own product! DDs are a

Dress–up with Andy Warhol

My lovely watchers : Part VIII-aHi everyone!My lovely watchers : Part VIII-a2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This year, in regard to DeviantArt, I am thankful for everyone who has ever commented, +favorited, or even just looked at my art, so I'm starting my annual feature for those who +watch my art on this year's Thanksgiving day. (while I work on this food coma XD)
I am especially thankful for receiving Daily Deviations on two of my pieces this year! That's still really hard for me to believe, but it explains why I have to split 2013's +watcher feature into a few parts so that it's fair for everyone. I'm so abundantly thankful to have received those DD's and, if it's even possible to imagine, even more grateful to have people who enjoy my art enough to follow my account. Thus, without further ado, please enjoy this feature (part 1) of some of the lovely people who had a stroke of fortunate insanity and decided to follow my gallery this past year. It was an amazing journey through these galleries and I hope many others will love my findings as much
