Philosophical Musings-Hell is other people?As a student of philosophy, both ancient and contemporary, I thought that understanding what is popular among artists in modern times would help me become a better artist.Philosophical Musings-Hell is other people?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
What better way than to look around DA for inspiration?
or that is what i thought, coming here 2 years ago.
since then i have lowered my expectations by a fair degree, while pushing my art in new and varied directions.
But I have had enough of this now.
If you want to see 18 year old girls getting their kit off and looking sultry, go find a damned porn site, and stop posting your needless crap here. its just pushing the whole ethos that girls are objects, and that sex is something fun that should be played around with.
now im not condoning abstinence, in fact i believe a healthy sex life is one of many keys to a happy life-
but try being a parent for just one month and then tell me that 18 year olds should be offering themselves out like a prize cut of beef on a website where most of the users are either middle aged
O MY UNAWARE ONE, HOW CAN YOU KNOW MY DREAMS, MYO my unaware one,how can you know?O MY UNAWARE ONE, HOW CAN YOU KNOW MY DREAMS, MY1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I, who am imprisoned for many, many
At the shoulders of your longings
In the cup of your aspirations
In your imprint,in your name,
All my horoscopes,all my ways,
All these signs of my writ
Stay stopped in your love
Sometimes inside the line of tears,
Sometimes inside the boundaries of stones,
Sometimes in the snare of ill-luck.
Many-a-colour burnt up due to the sun,
Many-a-moon faded down from the branch
Many-a-body burnt slow and melted
In the stay of your loves
In the door-and-roof-top of pain given by you
Somebody is fixed on the cross for a long,
In the night of your universe
In the evening of your multitude
You cannot know, how can you know?
News - Watcher Point Rate ChangeDescriptionNews - Watcher Point Rate Change1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Starting in 2013, the number of watchers given per point will be reduced by 40% while the number of points given for each watch received will be increased by 67%. This measure reflects the shifting quality of users giving watches. Previously, nearly all accounts were permitted to earn points and thus the overall quality of the service was low. Over time, filters have been put in place against all forms of alternate accounts, ensuring that users giving out activity are of a higher caliber. However, these active users have not been compensated for their actions.
This policy change will affect all users who are featured in the donation widget at the start of the new year. Those featured now and for the duration of 2012 will receive watchers (and other services) at the current rate. After the new year, all users with outstanding balances will receive watchers at the new rate. Users who give watchers will receive more points after
Shaped Bokeh ( Tutorials and Feature )Since i got asked a lot how i do the shaped bokeh photos i decided to write a short journal about itShaped Bokeh ( Tutorials and Feature )2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I won't write my own tutorial since there are already a lot of great tutorials out there and i do the absolutely same thing
First some "normal bokeh" tutorials :
and the Wiki Article : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh

- aperature as big as possible -> small number ( i use the canon 50mm 1.8 )
- some sort of light to create visible bokeh ( e.g. christ
I'm mad, bro!So, somehow today I stumbled on this blog. Saw many beautiful photographies. Then I saw mine.....I'm mad, bro!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was slightly changed, made worse. Then, I noticed that a lot of other deviants got their work stolen, like :iconvenomxbaby:, :iconvewolff: and :iconabsolutpe:.
Now I'm pretty sure that all of those photos in it are stolen. Yet the owner of the blog is claiming them as his or her own (when you right click on the page, it says: "Take your own pictures, and don't steal mine!"). I can't really tell if the owner is a really boyish girl or very girly guy. Dem hipsters, you know?
And the blog also has quite of a following.
So what did I do?
Of course first thing I did was inform some other deviantartists about this fact. Then I did the second most sensible thing. Filled out the Google Copyright Infringement form.
Hopefully they'll respond within a reasonable time-frame and do something.
This is the page with my work: http://feel-so-close.blogspot.com/2012/02/life-is-nothing-without-passion.htm

J. Paul Getty - The Liberation of Masterpieces as Open Content
The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resources within the arts themselves, for study, for sheer per

My interview for Limmie MagazineFor anyone interested, here's a sneak peek of my interview for Limmie Magazine.My interview for Limmie Magazine1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some words about it
At first, I had no idea what this magazine is about. I had no knowledge about it. But all I can say is that they're trying to make it a successful magazine through their hard work. They're still on their first editions, but the thing I liked about it is that they're trying to promote and share the work of a lot of creative people.
I've read about (and seen) photographers, designers, filmmakers, digital artists, illustrators, etc. each with their own point of view about art, and more specifically, about their way of creating and exposing their feelings into what they do.
Journal"the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!'Journal2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I was in a band throughout Highschool, and went on to do solo work in 1997. I have released 16 studio-albums and 4 EP discs since then. The music keeps coming.

Project Educate: 4 tips for great product photos!In a world where many products are easily accessible on the internet - yes, even those - we've nearly fallen victim to the images that are slightly better than the rest, that entice us in, that persuade us to buy, bid, eat, cook and whatever else. (You've seen my Nom Nom articles right?) So it's not unusual that an eye-catching image can make all the difference when it comes to selling your products, or your photography - or both.Project Educate: 4 tips for great product photos!7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Strong, Clear photographs will not only help you stand out on a web-page, but also will help you get your blog out there, or get your deviantART profile a bit more notice. Having a good working environment is often better than having that top notch expensive camera. So don't worry too much about your equipment. Get to know your angles, backdrops, props and lighting and the rest should hopefully fall into place.
Editing is really easy and good
