Artsy Pet PeevesI'm curious how many of the artist community find the following annoying, when you're just drawing and someone (usually not from an artsy background) comes over to you and they say either or all of the following? Now I know that probably they're just trying to be nice, and sociable (and get a free drawing) and don't know how to relate with someone who draws... but some of these really are annoying (and I'm holding back on the swear words see? 8D )Artsy Pet Peeves4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Can you draw a picture of me? (And then they whine as its not good enough)
2. Where do you get your ideas from? ( from mid-air >.> )
3. What does this color mean? ( I actually had someone ask me that, like every freaking thing I color or line must have some hidden meaning behind it)
4. Why do your characters all look the same? Don't you know to draw anything else? (When its actually the same character from multiple angles - at least they can tell its the same character... well almost)
5. Can you draw me and my girlfriend/boyfriend? (wel

For the rest of time this is just a test-journal. I realized I'm going back to school in about two weeks, so I have to hurry up with stuff. :0
For the rest of time I'm having an half-art block, because I can't come up with OCs. (Because the fanart ideas aren't having a problem at all with coming up with an idea. XD)
I got a few OCs I haven't shown, but... How can I make them feel special for me? Like, many people love their OCs, but It's just so hard for me to develop a connection between the creator and OC, and... Idk, I don't have any sidestories for them. Meh, this is currently an OC i came up with yesterday:

I want to thank all of you that have sent me messages some days ago. I was feeling terrible, on the verge of crying a river and locking myself out from anyone. Seeing how much you care made me feel so much better, knowing that someone there is thinking about my well being. You don't know how much it meant to me and what an impact had on me. Thank you so much.

"You're supposed to make a list of things you wish for and people may or may not gift you things off this list. UvU And then you can go and gift other people things off their list for Christmas ect ect if there is anything on their lists where you could help out and make somebody's biggest wish come true. ~(^ w^)~"
What I understand is this:
-Make a list of things people can draw for you, for presents
-anyone can take from the list and draw something for you
-tag people to make their lists too
-spread the Christmas joy!
I hope this doesn't sound pushy or anything. It's what the tag told me to do, so don't feel pressured or anything!
So to anyone who wants to draw me presents here is a list of ideas, I guess.

Instead spending Christmas at cozy places, I've been very hardly training cross-country skiing (skate style) alone and with my dog as well. On that month I've been doing negatively physically as well mentally, especially that feeling of emptiness after losing someone where you will never see this person again- sport was absolutely to best thing to help myself to overthink many things and make me to stand on feet properly.
But other than sport by itself I did but that trip was kind of my personal memorial for that musher who passed away. In his name I went on mushing. For
An Interview with Tanikel PhotojournalismAn Interview with Tanikel 2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Meet tanikel - our very own Photojournalism Community Volunteer. She's usually known as 'Lucky' although her name is Kristina Truluck and she has been a Combat Documentation/Production Specialist (better known as Combat Camera) for the U.S Army for just over six years. With an amazing array of experiences behind her, please enjoy this interview and get to know tanikel and her favoured gallery better.
I spent a year in Afghanistan photographing and filming combat itself, Afghan life in the villages, interrogations, and the dorks that make up the Army’s fighting force.
Now I teach the photography part of the Combat Camera military occupational speciality, concentrating on captions (I can’t stress how important this is for the job!), ethics, air/ground accidents, and combat documentation itself. It’s pretty amazing watching my students go from people
Letter to DeviantARTDear DeviantART,Letter to DeviantART7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am a simple artist. Nothing more, nothing less. I draw, write, create, etc. Every artist on this site should have the right to be creative, right? Individuality it one of the most amazing things about art. No matter what you make it can be something original and unique.
This is why I am starting to get upset with so many things you are taking away from regular members and only giving to the premiums.
Now I am not saying that you should give everything to the members that the premiums have, you guys do have to make money. But I am saying that the widgets that have to deal with customizing a page (Webcam, Custom Box, Journal Skin, etc.) should not be excluded to people who have a passion for art but don't have enough money to pay for a membership. I know may artists that are beyond amazing but don't have premiums. They deserve it more than anyone in my book.
Art is about creativity, imagination, emotion, and freedom. If you don't have the freedom to personalize your pa

F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.

"I prefer my hesitations, my false paths, my stammering, to a preconceived idea." - Robert Doisneau
A Bit of Biography...
Robert Doisneau was a French photographer, born in 1912 and raised by his aunt, who was a pioneer of photojournalism as we know it today. He studied arts and crafts from a young age and began to experiment with photography when he was sixteen years old. He became the staff photographer while working for an advertising agency in the 1920s. It was just the beginning of his illustrious career.
Soon thereafter, Doisneau saw his work published in magazines and he worked on well-known advertising and photojournalistic campaigns. When World War II began, he was recruited as both a soldier and photographer for the French Resistance.
He was well-known for his unassuming, surreal, and lighthearted portrayal of life on the streets of Paris. Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville (Kiss by the Town Hall), one of his most renown
