About BasesSo, I'm a little peeved and I want to discuss bases, and people who use them. On my picture on that idiot who turned troll on me over the issue, someone posted a comment trying to defend base users. That WASN'T the issue of the picture -- rudeness was, as was the inability to accept "no" to a request -- but let's get into the issue they brought up: that people have a legitimate need to use bases. I shall quote them here:About Bases11 months ago in Personal More Like This
"There really are some people that can't draw and need bases because they simply can't. I don't appreciate having all those people boxed into one category, as some people in this comment section have done. It has nothing to do with laziness as to why people use bases, they just simply cannot draw."
I am fully prepared to dispute that statement, totally and unequivocally. It's not that people CAN'T draw -- it's that they want INSTANT GRATIFICATION. They want to be Super-Artist the first time they set pencil to paper. There are some people who can do that,

Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you

National Novel Writing Month 2013It's that time of the year again! October is wearing down and November is nearly upon us, which means that National Novel Writing Month is just around the corner! NaNoWriMo spans from November 1st to 30th and challenges authors to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in just one month. It's a massive event for writers everywhere. The challenge of it and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with writing a novel in just a month is what has made this event successful for so many years!National Novel Writing Month 20136 months ago in Personal More Like This

With NaNoWriMo, in addition to the challenge of writing your novel in just a month, they will help you track your progress, get pep talks, support, as well as meet fellow writers attempting the same challenge. NaNoWriMo is for people of all ages and all levels of writing, many professional novelists also take part in this event.

Sorry to bother you...Hello all,Sorry to bother you...2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I thought I'd take a moment today to write a journal which is probably long overdue. I believe there is a common misconception floating around that CVs are so busy, that when you send us DD Suggestions, or other messages, you are being a bother.
Quite regularly the DD Suggestions I receive start with something along the lines of "I am sorry to bother you..." or "I know you are busy but.."
I'd like to assure you all that no suggestions you send, or any other type of contact made with me (or any other CV for that matter) is something to feel sorry or bad about (unless you are legitimately harassing us or something).
I've often heard community members talk about how many notes CVs get daily (often this number appears to be near 100) and I feel the need to say that this is very far from the truth. On average I receive maybe 5 notes a day. On a slow day I may not get any at all and on a busy day I may get up to 10. While I can not speak

Fear of CreativityA rather unfortunate, yet commonplace problem amongst creative minds is one of fear: fear of being creative, fear of making something that could be terrible, fear of rejection, fear of judgment, fear of failure. This root fear seems driven by every artist's desire to make great work. After all, that is why creative people createto build or define beauty as they see fit. So when inspiration strikes, there is both a drive to create and an element of fear holding back. The apparent duality of this situation is actually multifaceted.Fear of Creativity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, there is the general fear of failure. Nobody wants to fail, creatively or otherwise, even though great minds have shown us that failure is necessary for improvement. This fear of failure manifests itself as hesitation and self-doubt, ultimately causing procrastination or just a delayed start, or even destroying the urge to create altogether.
Secondly, the fear of judgment. Fearing what others might think of the work, fearing comments of negativity

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

@YukoRabbitJapanese artist YukoRabbit's beautiful artwork is both passionate and incredibly detailed. With strong lines, forced perspective, and captivating characters, it's hard not to look twice at each of her digital paintings. She's able to draw you into the intricate lives of her attractive adolescent muses with her intriguing concepts. With a strong sense of movement, her work seems to dance around the page entangling both the viewer and the subject.@YukoRabbit6 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Encouragement-Affirmation-InspirationI have envisioned a way to feature many in our literature community in a way that would give attention to a broad spectrum of folk regardless of their skill level. This could be a great way to present yourself to the community and be a source of encouragement or inspiration to many others.Encouragement-Affirmation-Inspiration5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here is how it will work.
1. Spread the word!
2. Note me with an uplifting quote of encouragement, affirmation or inspiration.
The quote should be brief and pointed; A few sentences preferred, though longer quotes of exceptional merit will be considered.
Cite the author if it is known; or you may write your own quote that fits our title's definitions.'Link' or 'thumb' a piece of your own writing in the note and state why it is meaningful to you. (If you are uncertain how to do this note me for help)
3. Depending on the response, I hope to build a library where the best and brightest uplifting quotes, and the featured providers, are displayed daily; though I suspect it will be
