Project: Satisfy 1,000 Deviants.Hello and welcome to my Project fellow deviants.Project: Satisfy 1,000 Deviants.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll get straight to the point. I have started a Project which is called "Satisfy 1,000"
What is the Project about?
The aim of the project is to collect 1,000 Points by the end of this year. When the amount gets collected it will be distributed to 1,000 fellow deviants.
What I want is, to help other deviants experience the joy of receiving points. There are many deviants who would just love to receive a single point. Instead of giving away points to please 10-50 Deviants why not make everyone happy? Instead of making a contest or giveaway why not just make everyone feel that they've won something? The joy of receiving points is great, I've experienced it and that's why I want people to feel that same joy of receiving points.
How can we help you?
You can help me with the Project by donating Points, I currently have 7,500 Points.
Any amount of points is appreciated and welcome. I hope that before 2013, I with the help of everyone here can

Useful links (the forms are taken from these really helpful websites!):
Step one: Find out who the admin is, and their contact information. Also find out if a company is hosting their website.
The website should have a "contact us" page, where you can find email addresses, contact forms, and they might also have a copyright policy page. Find out their email and how to contact them. You can also use http://www.whois.sc/ to search for the registered owner of the webpage, sometimes.

The BacklashHey guys,The Backlash3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow, so my deviation seem to have struck a nerve with alot of people both positively and negatively.
I just wanted to say im sorry if I offended anyone who just wanted to give some constructive criticism it truly wasn't the point of the deviation.
There were two main points in this "protest" pokeball, they are:
1. To make those who bombarded me with the "you are an art thief" comments, I explained my stance on this and some people didn't get it or they wouldn't read the previous comments I made to other people so they just wrote what they wanted and the whole thing started up a flame war, which I assure you I did not want in the least.
2. The other side of it was to those who wanted my artwork off DA because they have seen it "way too many times and DA is sick of it", I really don't feel that a small group of people could tell me what ALL of deviantart wanted to see you know? Also, I was sent many many many notes with insulting and uncalled for rude language and threats towar

According to interviews with Nissan's CEO, Carlos Ghosn, and other company executives, the rebooted car will appear in these countries as bare-boned as any rival has tried. And Nissan is hoping to set new lows for pricing for a global auto maker, offering the cheapest Datsun model for about $3,000 to $5,000. The lowest price is nearly a third the price of its most inexpensive car, the $8,000 Tsuru compact sold in Mexico.

The Price of ArtThis journal entry has been in my mind for awhile, and now with having posted the article about artists deserving respect as paid professionals I think its time to give you my perspective on this.The Price of Art6 years ago in Personal More Like This
What determines the price of art? What is art worth? Is it really worth anything? Why should people buy art?
First of all, the major point in all of this is that the price of art is completely subjective, meaning that its value is mainly determined by the person viewing it. The second part of the value of artwork is determined by the cost of materials, and the cost of the artists time, as well as how in demand their work is. Then there are different price scales for Fine Artists, Graphic Artists, Illustrators, Freelance Artists, Web Designers, etc. All of these factors add up to the price of artwork.
For my purposes, I will discuss Fine Art and Illustration, which is what I am most familiar with.
With fine art, the

Ok we're back, sorta. School is a terrible environment for art. And I have a lot of people who can vouch for that XD Anyway, the point is, I won't be working on it at 10 a day. Not for now, anyway. What is going to happen instead, is, I'll be drawing the remaining Pokemon first, then :IconAldenlite: will vector them. After that I'll color them all at one go, and you guys will see the complete collection. About time, I know. It's coming to the end of a school term, after which I have a week to rush up my homework, and of course, the project. Hopefully I can get it up by then.
Anyway due to the new sequence of actions, we'll actually need 3 progress bars to handle this.

Never laugh at beginnersA clear explanation of why you can not laugh at the kids and beginners.Never laugh at beginners3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some users (not just spectators, but also good artists) young authors criticize, laugh at "curves" works. This is silly, especially when the authors do not ask for criticism.
Criticism does not work, it just hurts. Assist cautious practical advice and training. The importance of studying anatomy, drawing and theory to understand himself. It is impossible to impose.
The only important thing: the love of his work, love for the intermediate result and a great desire to paint / sculpt. It is better if the young author will draw hundreds of pictures a month of unsuccessful than successful one once a year.
At the same time, it is important to invest ourselves into work, rather than mechanically drawing the line. But investing is not possible if you do not love yourself and your creativity.
I started sculpting in 2006. If I were recaptured desire, if not there were people who liked even the first of ... I'd never sculpted

I cannot tell you how many people I know that insist on the option of "changing" for the person you like/love/adore/respect. One person in particular this journal is going out to. I'm about to rip you a new ass hole, bro. If you don't get this through your thick head I will be royally pissed off. -.-
*Of course, I say these words with love.*
You are making a mondo mistake.
Changing for anyone is stupid on so many levels. Whoever doesn't like it can go fall in their own pathetic little ditch because we're all awesome, some people just don't see it like our friends and loved-ones do. If this person REALLY loved you and REALLY cared about you in the first place, they'd take you as you are and live with it. Embrace you. LOVE you. Anyone who asks, wants, or feels you should change should have an "auto-eject" button slapped across their face. They are not worth anything.
Who ever is "making" you change, is a self-centered son of a bitch
Never laugh at beginners, part 2Now let's talk about the pictures. I drew a lot and with great joy. At this level, which is available in 13/11/10 years. I drew no better than most beginners can see for yourself. These "masterpieces" swamped the Internet. Above them are laughing, they are criticized. And if the young author strongly respond to "fair criticism", it does hunt down.Never laugh at beginners, part 23 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I repeat: the criticism, which is not requested, no one needs. If the author had not asked to point out the flaws, do not do that. Otherwise, it does not help the artist, but satisfaction with their own ambitions.
I love my old job. I still tear anyone say a bad word about them. This is my childhood, my past, my roots. These are memories, stories, experiences. This is - alive and expensive. Does this mean that I do not understand their technical imperfections? Of course not. I see. Does this mean that I do not want to improve? Of course not. You can see how much technology has changed over the years. Not because of criticism, but by love

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
