Hope everyone's had a nice Christmas and new year
It's 2012, the year London makes a fool of it's self with the Olympics and then the planet implodes with embarrassment and the world ends Should be a fun year!
So what's everyone's hopes for this year? Both on dA and off.
Personally I'm really looking forward to some of the new features we've got planned for the year ahead
One of them has been snuk into this journal
If there's something new you'd like to see on dA this year what would it be? Drop a comment (even if it has nothing to do with dA) it's been a while since I've posted a proper journal, and it's nice to have a catch up and see how people have been

Depending on how things go, I may open up the possibility of commissions too later down the line, but I'll update my journal if I decide to do that.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SHIPPING WILL BE EXTRA - I won't be shipping these myself, so need to confirm shipping costs - they are being shipped from within the US. Please note me if you are interested in any of these pieces, and I will be able to give you a final cost including shipping!

Species-A-Day Macro Challenge!Alright, so I was out in the garden today and a "challenge" idea came to mind. Here's how it goes:Species-A-Day Macro Challenge!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1.) Take insect macros every day, and 2.) Post a different species for each day.
Thinking a month would be a fairly challenging period of time, so I'm going to start mine tomorrow (June 10th) and go until July 10th. So you should end up with an album of 30 or so images, all of a different species of insect. The photo that you post for each day MUST have been taken on that day, so no using multiple photos from any single day.
I want to get my macro skills back. I feel like it's been ages since I took a good insect photo, so this will be good practice for shooting in all kinds of conditions since the weather is likely to change. I want to get back that sense of patience that I used to have when it came to macro photography This will also force me to be more active, posting my images here at the end of every day.
Side note, dead insects DO count, but only

Perhaps the eternally unanswerable question.
But definitely something to chew on...
When I first saw it, I was instantly captivated.
At first thought...
...what a brilliant example of modern pointillism! Has some unknown artist taken up the long abandoned banner of Georges
Seurat and presented us with a new manifesto championing art as points of light illuminating our waking dreams?!
OK, I see now it’s not a painting at all, so my pointillism exuberance is dashed. It’s more likely one of those photo collages
with thousands of small images being arranged to create a larger picture. That’s cool. So what’s the picture?
If I stare intently long enough, will it suddenly “emerge,” like the ones they sell on the Venice Beach Boardwalk?
We Give a F*** How the Site LoadsDevelopers can be angry people sometimes. This is actually quite the understatement and %dt is no exception to that assessment. With web development in particular, there are several moments during the day where we are astounded, perplexed, and irritated by why something works the way it does--often over things beyond our control like lack of uniform web standards. Abe Stanway, the creator of Commit Logs from Last Night, actually gives a pretty compelling, and serious, Ignite talk on the functionality of profanity for developers here:We Give a F*** How the Site Loads4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Black Hills Camping Trip (photos)Ohhhh goodness... where to begin? Back from a rather crazy camping trip. Crazy in ways both good and bad. Decided to spend a weekend in the Black Hills since Chris (~INTOtheRFD) had been through a couple long rough weeks of work and wanted some down time. There were also storm chances every day/night, which were very enticing. And ever since Chris and I visited there for the first time in late 2012, we started thinking about moving there. Since Sarah (=JupiterLily) is here now, we figured what better opportunity to show her what could possibly be our future home?Black Hills Camping Trip (photos)4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Left Friday morning to meet up with Chris, and headed west on I-90 through South Dakota towards Rapid City. Looked like an okay chase day, and stuff was finally starting to fire west of the Black Hills as we reached Kadoka. Headed west and south into the Black Hills, only to watch our storm die before it got to us. This would soon become the theme of the trip Called it a day and shot the sunset at Sylvan Lake.
Tamron 70-300mm - Little Overweight, But BeautifulLatest NewsTamron 70-300mm - Little Overweight, But Beautiful7 months ago in Personal More Like This
So after comparing my options, and even considering ditching getting a new telephoto in favor of a new prime (85mm f/1.8 to be exact), I went out and bought the Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Thursday morning. It was my late night at work, and so instead of driving home, then turning around and driving back to Dallas later in the day once I woke up, I just decided to stop in Downtown and shoot some photos with the old telephoto, the Canon 75-300mm, one last time. I figured I could waste two hours shooting photos until the store opened.
I got to the store a bit after they opened, and played around with the Tamron and the Canon 85mm. I must say I was nearly swayed into buying the new prime, since I would have also been able to get my hands on the Black Rapid strap I am after. But I went ahead and got the Tamron.

dA in 10 years?I recently read a forum thread found here: http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/general/131114/ about where everyone thought deviantART would be in 10 years. Many people said we'd have sold out to MSN or AOL. Others said we'd be limiting uploads for non-subscribers and cutting off access to services.dA in 10 years?10 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's two ways to take this I suppose: Either it's a general feeling that this thing is too good to be true in its current form. Or somehow it's expected that a service growing so quickly would somehow be forced to sell out.
Neither is true. This was my response:
I think deviantART will be looked upon as a revolution unto itself. Having been able to scale not only it's infrastructure but it's community and spawned sub-communities (within the garden of deviantART) to include the various arts of hundreds of millions of artists worldwide.
And as the ultimate complement, it will be taken completely for granted. A service fully integrated in to daily li

These bills are called called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIP (Protect IP), presented to the House of Representatives and the senate (respectively) in the United States. Later in this article, we will also discuss how these bills have a world wide significance.

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols2 months ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

Commissions FAQ! [Closed]Commissions FAQ! [Closed]5 months ago in Personal More Like This
How many commissions do you take?
I'm opening 10 slots for all kinds of drawings. It doesn't matter if the same person buys several pieces, they go as different slots. Once all slots are taken, commissions will be closed for a while, until I finish all of them. There'll also be drawing status next to each name in the list, so you can know how much of an order is done already.
How do I pay for commission?
I accept PayPal, email@example.com. If you'd like to pay with DA points, I don't mind (5$=400 points, y'know) The prices may rise or drop, depending on the amount of details.
How do I commission pictures with my character?
- Send me a note titled 'COMMISSION' with desired type of it and description of your character. The more detailed examples of their appearance you have, the more accurate I draw them.
