How to Handle and Provide CritiquesDuring my short hiatus, I didnt leave dA completely. I just left my inbox and main page. Instead, I spent my spare time diving deeper into dA community, browsing through news articles, random groups, and various journals, until I accidentally stumbled upon this: You cant avoid criticism. http://news.deviantart.com/article/153114/How to Handle and Provide Critiques4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Criticism has been a big issue for many artists, including me. Some take it for granted, others throw a hissy fit. So, how can we provide and handle critiques without making a big fuss?
For Critic: HOW TO PROVIDE HELPFUL CRITIQUE
Dont criticize people who explicitly state they dont need critiques.
But they wont go far in art industry with that attitude!
Those people may do not even wish to be an artist. They just draw for fun. Theres no point of spending your precious time analyzing ones picture and writing a critique if that person doe

9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS1. UNIVERSALITY - Acrylic are probably the most versatile of paints. You can thin them with water and use as watercolor (they will remain permanent upon drying, unlike watercolor), apply them in full strength, create textures.9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. COMBINABLE - This medium is very suitable to be combined with anything you wish - watercolor, ink, pencils, oils... Free your imagination and experiment!
3. NUMEROUS SUITABLE SURFACES - Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas, wood, metal and many more surfaces (this is true, even though they don't adhere towards some surfaces as promptly as oils). This is a great advantage, when you get used to this medium, you can paint at whatever material you've got available.
4. DON'T STINK - That's right, all of you that have experienced headaches caused by oil paint might just appreciate an acrylic vacation!
5. FAST DRYING TIME - Composition doesn't seem right after you put down your first layer? This is not a problem, wait half an hour
PE: Semi-Abstract ArtIn this article I'd like to explore "semi-abstract art" a little.PE: Semi-Abstract Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We should probably look at definitions of "abstract art" first, before we try to see what "semi-abstract art" could be.
Abstract art definitions:
"Abstract art seeks to break away from traditional representation of physical objects. It explores the relationships of forms and colors, whereas more traditional art represents the world in recognizable images." (dictionary.com)
"Drawings/Paintings focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery, emphasizing lines, colors, generalized or geometrical forms." (dA gallery description)
What could "semi-abstract" art be then?
The term "semi-abstract" itself suggests that this art style is not quite abstract, but something in between. In between of what? Abstract and realis

Many of us doodle and you may not realize it but doodles will actually tell you a lot about your personality and mood. The size, position as well as what the object(s) of focus of will lead you to some key clues. There are many different shapes, designs and colors of doodles, just as there are different dream scenarios, but there are some that are quite common and, as such, more easily interpreted.
Size and Placement
Large doodles that take most of your page, you are likely to be attracted to nature. Moreover, you might also have a reserved personality, but would want to socialize.
Small doodles on a corner of the paper suggest that the person is neat and organized in his/her ways. Because the drawing is placed on a side of the page, it shows that a person does not like wastage and prefers everything in its

some thoughts from yesterdayi've always been a lover of the ugly pretty. i don't mind shooting in harsh sunlight or when my model is looking the other way or has a tangled mess of hair on her face. my camera clicks when someone takes a deep breath in or are tying their shoelaces on the side of the road. this year i want to shoot that more than ever. i want to shoot knees with bruises and hands rubbing tired eyes with dirt underneath plain fingernails. i want to run around barefoot in the forest with the wild bird i am taking pictures of in the few minutes of blue light after the sun sets and before the night sets in. i want to shoot designer clothing in the ocean and climb trees in dresses. i want to breathe life into my photography like it breathes life into me.some thoughts from yesterday2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparel Collection: FangsSlip on this design with strength and pride any time you need to face your creative fears. When a homework assignment, due date at work, blank canvas, or creative brief stares you in the face, stare right back with an intimidating snarl.

The concept of this piece came to me after messing around with gold-colored aluminum foil worn over my teeth while dressed up in costume, giving the camera a growling look. Looking at the photo taken, I felt as if I had just become one of the many wacky characters I draw so often. The overall feeling was worth exploring in a drawing. Showing your teeth is a powerful and primal reaction, but rather than pimping out my grill, I thought it would be interesting to wear that look on a shirt or hoodie.
I have a healthy fear of creatures in nature that could eat me live, so this idea of giant teeth worn across the chest seemed empowering. Grizzlies, wolves, wild dogs, zombies

I've already made my stand on that issue clear with a simple "Bollocks", but there is another aspect of the Orwellian nightmare that may be infiltrating public transport: that of being bombarded by information, whether you want it or not.
Now THAT is something to be legitimately concerned about.
Unsurprisingly, it's something birthed by Rupert "Evil F**k" Murdoch's empire, who I'm pretty sure goes into work each day and asks the question "How do we kill Superman?"

I will be leaving dA for two years..Hey my awesome watchers and friends!I will be leaving dA for two years..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, yes, like the title says, I will be leaving dA for two years as of the 18th of April, so in about a week. This is a tough decision, as dA has become an important part of my life, because I am actually trying to build up a living with my art. But you should know, that I am a Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. ) and I am 18, close to 19, so I am going on a mission. That means I will be going to the Alpine region (Switzerland, Austria, South-Germany) and talk to the people about what I believe in. You have to know, that this is something I carefully considered and I have a strong belief in God and so I want to share the joy my religion has brought me. The mission will be for two years and I wont have the time to upload any art to dA. My sister PixieCold will keep you up to date through journals on my page here, so you know what I am doing and how my life is going!
Please, if you disagree with
Diary of Jane #4It's not nothing, to finish a painting. It's a moment of bliss, one very tiny comparing to the time spent working. I've experienced four of such moments this week, nothing motivates better than to accomplish something. Apart from that, I really enjoyed writing another feature for you. I've picked 3 more artists, to me very different, unique and worth respect.Diary of Jane #42 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Another thought of mine was about making first steps. I can hardly remember something ever coming to me on it's own, or to find a chocolate in my pocket just like that. People often complain about being unlucky, but I know that lucky people are very rare. The rest can chose to either keep on waiting, or go for it (:
Make a first step towards something you dream about, today.
Enjoy the feature and the weekend

Where do you place value?I've been noticing a trend in a lot of Christians feeling like they need to defend themselves. So I'm going to share some things that have helped me with this.Where do you place value?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An easy way to deal with this is to put more value on what God says about you than you put on what other people say about you. Which do you hold in higher regard? Does what other people think and say about you dominate your outlook? Or do you hold what God says in a higher esteem? It's good to value and respect other people. Even if someone is wrong about something, that person is still valuable. They are valuable to God, and so they should be valuable to you. But that doesn't mean you need to value that person's words or opinion, especially if they are wrong about something. If you only put value on what God says, no accusations or insults from others should affect you. For this to be effective, you need to know what God says. The bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is about Jesus and His finished work. Jesus is God's word. If i
