Life is Beautiful...Isn't it?Life is Beautiful...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are magical moments in life where I get the opportunity to remember that I'm nothing but an insignificant living being among 8 billion others.. on a planet among 8 in a solar system among billions in a galaxy among trillions and all in one universe-- possibly among others?-- where whether or not I died, would hardly leave a mark even in the face of my own city.
The world goes on without you.
Yet I once realized, that a meaning in life, is to give life a meaning.
Live your dreams! You only live once.
Don't do idiotic dares for the sake of saying you did them-- go tell that cute boy or girl you like them!
Go tell the world your name!
Why must everything be over after one failure..?
Sure, the humiliation of having everyone look down upon you is torture itself... but when you get back up and show everyone that you're somebody, it won't be you who'd be ashamed for not realizing your potential sooner-- but them!

Women of Star Wars
For this contest you'll be depicting your favorite women of Star Wars! Read on my friends!
- A female Star Wars character must (of course) be in the picture/fiction
- No male characters allowed in the picture/fiction
- All pictures must be done with respect. Don't draw any pictures with the sole intent of showing off boobs and butts. Draw these women as strong and amazing as they appear on screen. I will decline images that are made for arousal purposes.
- With reluctance I must allow the slave Leia outfit, but if you decide to go that route please keep it a
Dear Watchers and Friends,Words cannot describe how much I appreciate your support.Dear Watchers and Friends,3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every single one of you is very important to me.
Why am I saying this?
I only want you to know it!^^
I know sometimes I write controversial journal entries, I reject re-watches and requests. But I always have my reasons and I never mean it rude.
I would never scare anyone away by being mean or something like that.
Maybe in a discussion when I cannot understand your point, I can be a little bit pissed off. This is only because I'm quite emotional.
But I can separate opinions on a topic from the person self! So I'd never be mad at you for disagreeing with me.
Without you, dA wouldn't be fun to me! x3
Thank you for everything!
Lots of love!
Free hugs for everyone!!

Let's Learn Portraiture: Model CommunicationIn an effort to further give back to the community, I have decided to kick off a series of informative articles called 'Let's Learn Portraiture.' The goal will be to cover topics related to people and portrait photography. To start, we will cover a topic suggested by ThomasJergelLet's Learn Portraiture: Model Communication3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Communicating With Your Model
Get to Know Your Subject
Different photographers take different approaches to how they interact with their models, but I've always taken a personal approach. Learning about your subject's interests can not only make them more comfortable, but it can also lead to more striking images that follow along with those interests. Communication is key when it comes to interacting with your model, and building a quick rapport is important in order to solidify that.
When working with amateur models who may not be familiar with posing for the camera, you may often find that they will resort to e

Don't look at me like that. This is good news.
I'VE JUST HIT 1000 WATCHERS.
This was me logging on this morning:
I'm trying to imagine all 1000 of you in a room. I think I'd hug you all individually.
Actually, I don't think I can imagine all 1000 of you together.
But I can imagine 100 otters in an aeroplane.
But anyway. I have found a room. Come at once, however inconvenient. I have even brought cheesy snacks.
But in all seriousness, I couldn't be more thankful. Your support means so much to me.
Seriousness over. CELEBRATORY DANCE.
Aaaah. Gif spam over.
Well, not quite. I don't know what this is, but it makes me laugh:
Once again, thank you so much! I was working on a thank-you drawing, but it may take a while. D:

I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma
Short Hair TutorialsMorning everyone!Short Hair Tutorials2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been running around like a bit of a nut this week as we spent the weekend in Canberra working with Australia Tourism. But now I'm back and a little rested I'll be shooting the next set of hair tutorials this week so if you have requests please let me know asap
Also I get daily requests to make tutorials for people with short hair. This is a little easier said than done because obviously I don't have short hair and haven't for many years. I do try to get friends with shorter hair to model but not everyone wants their face plastered all over the internet ^_^
That said I have previously done a series of video tutorials using my awesome friend Stef so there are 5 tutorials on my youtube channel to get you started if you have short hair. I'm going to see if I can get her or another friend to volunteer for photo versions as well so if you have a particular style you want to learn just pop it in the comments too.
Here is a playlist for the short hair tutorials: http:

Massive Star Wars Collab - SIGN UP HERE![05-05-15] -- Now that our collaboration has been going for over two months the amount you can do has been increased to ten! Good luck everyone!Massive Star Wars Collab - SIGN UP HERE!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Star Wars characters we can!
:iconattention-plz: PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE SIGNING UP! I don't want you to draw a character and not be allowed in because you missed a rule. ;_;
You don't have to be part of the group to join in the collaboration, but it's HIGHLY recommended at least for the duration of the collab because if I have any updates or new rules, I'm going to send the message here.
Any Star Wars character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken him/her/it, then you can't sign up them again.
When we're done, Zimeta will put together all the individual characters onto one big mural, much like her previous collabs:
#Fella - About: CommentingComments are an integral part of our everyday deviantART life - we communicate with each other through comments, give and get feedback, critiques, or have the most interesting conversation whose origin is one simple comment on a deviation or journal.#Fella - About: Commenting3 weeks ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This article is all about commenting, including a few commenting tips and thoughts on commenting by fellow deviants, as well as some resoures you might find helpful for commenting.
Keep in mind what kind of deviation it is you're commenting on, as there are different things to focus on in a visual artwork (e.g. colours, shading) than a literature piece (wording, grammar), for example. (DerangedSenpai)
You can use the "sandwich" technique for commenting: start with saying something positive, put negative comments in middle, and also end with something positive. (Sachi-pon)Be specific with your positive and negative statements. Don't just say "It's cute", but mention a reason why you think it's cute; w

With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.
