Getting the Most out of dA: CommentingUsually, when you read something involving 'Commenting', you think of deviations and the commenting platform that allows other members of the community to voice their thoughts and opinions on the art shown. However, what is pretty evident, and something that most of us may forget, is that deviantART runs on the ability to give and get comments, be it on pieces of artwork, our profile pages, forums, and everywhere else in between.Getting the Most out of dA: Commenting2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In a sense, without the ability to give and get comments, deviantART wouldn't be much of a website, much less #1 of online art communities around. Comments are not solely the cause of what makes deviantART what it is, but it has a huge impact on a lot of things. By giving and getting comments, not only do we interact with other members to really make this a community, we also have the ability to get our voices heard.
It's quite an odd concept with us all facing screens, typing out our thoughts and opinions, but one thing we shouldn't forget is that commen

Protesting SOPA ~ January 18th Internet BlackoutDo you like DeviantART? How about YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr, and much more?Protesting SOPA ~ January 18th Internet Blackout3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then SOPA and PIPA have the power to effect you drastically. These bills will take away your freedom to use the internet and go to the websites you love.
As a protest of #SOPA and #PIPA (The Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act) two pieces of legislation that are up for debate once again on January 18, 2012, I will not be online.
This applies to everyone! Share this message as much as you can and don't allow your freedoms to be stolen away.
These bills are not dead. Even gigantic websites like Wikipedia and Tumblr are taking part. However, this doesn't mean that you shouldn't take part; this movement needs you.
Like TimberClipse said...
"A number of people are asking why this is important. It is first off important to remember that one of the reasons I am sharing this on deviantART is dA is one of the websites that SOPA could seriously hurt. As is YouTube. Facebook. Wikipedia.

A Rant about Abstract Art:Hey there people! Let's gab about abstract art.A Rant about Abstract Art:3 years ago in Personal More Like This
To start, I hate it. I both love it at the same time. That's the nature of that art. Abstract art is meant to evoke an emotion out of you, in a minimalist way or in a complex one, that's the main goal of art in general, is to evoke emotion and responses. And I guess since i'm writing about it despite my loathing nature for the majority of it, I guess it's successful either way. So let me just blab out the main point of this.
Abstract art is often shat out by people who can't fully grasp the concept of their own work themselves. They rely on the general stupidity of the public to crap out an explanation, then they sit there and go: 'Yes. My large, purple square IS the embodiment of pure energy and the personification of the world.' Then people who see it and DON'T get a response, like the majority, rely on this sort of guilty clause to believe what some pompous dingbat shat out, and it continues on that way. WOW! I made a great picture! ON

Hate is hate.
Hating on someone for their race is racist. You could either be white or black, Asian or Mexican. Either way, if someone attacks you for the color of your skin, it's racism.
Hating on someone for their gender is sexist. You could either be female or male, cisgender or transgender, etc. Either way, if someone attacks you because you're a specific gender and automatically make assumptions about you, it's sexism.
Hating on someone for their beliefs is religionist(is that word? Let's make it a word if it isn't). You could either be Christian or Jewish, Muslim or Buddhist, Atheist or Agnostic, etc. Either way, if someone attacks you based on what you believe in and tells you that "you will go to hell" or "you are scum" and whatnot, it's religionist.
There is such thing as reverse racism.

Devious Journal EntryDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: Thanks for the info on reindeer gender-antler technicalities. I did learn this in my teens, but I just kind of enjoy drawing the deer as white-tails like I did as a kid. I know it's incorrect, but the nostalgia factor is more fun for me. Merry Christmas fellow biology nerds!
When I was would little, my obsessive love for Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer would inspire me to draw Santa's eight reindeer to string together for Christmas decorations around the house. Even as a kid, I wanted some of the reindeer to be girls (it only seemed fair) and Dancer, Vixen and Cupid where always featured without antlers to show Santa didn't discriminate against the does!
So here's sweet-natured Cupid to wish you Happy Holidays! Have a wonderful day, everyone!
Commission InformationCommission Information3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So basically a few people have asked me about commissions in the past, and really, I've had no set prices for anyone who's actually willing to offer me a currency for my art, whether it be points, USD or GBP. Frankly, I don't really take commissions in USD or GBP because frankly I'm young and I don't really think anyone would actually be willing to pay me money for my art so I think if anything I'll just stick to Points for now and see how well it goes. I know I won't get a lot a commissions but every so often someone tens to inquire, so this would be easier than anything else.
Also, I would just like to say I have no idea what my art is worth, so these prices will be quite low. If I've missed something that I have made in the past, then please just feel free to leave a comment

5 Tips to Maintaining and Gaining WatchersFor those who have many watchers, and for those who dont have many, it is hard to know how one retains that interest as well as receive more. This article explores the basics of watchers and how we react to certain situations. Although it does not affect some deviants, and the tips are generally common sense, we hope the article is a worthwhile read and that the majority learn something from reading this.5 Tips to Maintaining and Gaining Watchers6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. When uploading deviations, do not bombard your watchers. If you upload only one or two a day, or even one or two a week, you will get more comments as well as more attention. People will have more time to comment and more time in general, whereas if you upload all in one go, they will most likely delete and just comment on a few.
2. Spend time on your artwork. Once youve finished a piece, it doesnt stop there. Youve got to consider the title, which impacts the piece significantly and the artists comment. Is art ever finished? Ask yourself that q
! DESIGN ME A FURSONA CONTEST ! - edit -hi um. this contest is on hold right now so please don't do your entries just yet!! DESIGN ME A FURSONA CONTEST ! - edit -2 years ago in Personal More Like This
edit: i'm PRETTY SURE I WANT A HYENA FURSONA. i think i've decided on that.
I've never actually had a fursona that is "me" that I like. Sure I have Gordon but he's more of a mascot orsm. I never get pleased with what I design myself, and I tend to want my fursona to be different animals all the time. I can't decideeeeee.
So i thought i'd do this contest lol.
If I end up not wanting any of the designs, I'll still crown a winner (prize might be lower tho).
OK LETS START
remember to read everything
it can get long heh
THINGS I LIKE AND STUFF:
- UNIQUE DESIGNS. easily recognizable and simple-ish.
idk what species I want or anything. i'd suggest you pick one of the animals listed below here that remind you the most of me (you can pick a animal that isnt listed here, but please ask me if i like that animal before you do).
species I like: leopard, pant

Whats your opinion on hyperrealism?I've always stayed away from trying to create hyperrealistic digital paintings.. because I've always felt, why do what photography can? (which may have been very immature of a thought on my part) But these days I'm finding it may be very good practice, good exercises, to attempt hyperrealism. What is your opinion? I will likely try it out but in general, do you prefer semi-realistic art? Or do you enjoy hyperrealistic art too?Whats your opinion on hyperrealism?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
