5 Ways To Get People To Look At Your ArtIt's surprising how many people out there produce good art, but don't get the recognition they deserve. I have some really good friends who are amazing at what they do, and yet only get a small amount of traffic on their artworks/dA pages.5 Ways To Get People To Look At Your Art5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here's what I think you need to do to more recongition, no matter how good at art you art.
ONE - N E T W O R K
The more you put yourself out there, the more available you become to people, the more people will come to you.
Be nice, don't demand they visit your page.
Favourite Other Artworks
The more you favourite, the more people will become aware of you, some will visit your page - your art - and say thankyou. It's a nice, easy way of gaining recognition, especially if you have something good to show people when they do say thankyou.
Comment on Other Artists pages
Appreciate their art, and they will do so in return. Give t

'The Big four' Contest!!! (CLOSED)It's Contest TIME, we have over 10 votes, so lets do a contest.'The Big four' Contest!!! (CLOSED)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Theme is: "The big four in Hogwarts"
That means, that the big four (Merida,Rapunzel, jack frost and hiccup), has to be in hogwarts with hogwarts uniform.
If you want there can be more characters from movies in backround but they have to be in hogwarts uniform too. You can draw a character from "Harry Potter" too, like harry potter and "The big four" are hanging-out together. Or you can draw like "The Big four" in trouble, so they are talking to Dumbldore.
AND HERE ARE "THE BIG FOUR'S" CLANS.
MERIDA - Griffindor
RAPUNZEL - Ravenclaw
Jack Frost - Slytherin
Hiccup - Hufflepuff
OR AS SOME PEOPLE DEMAND
[Bullet; Red]Merida - Griffindor
[Bullet; Blue]Hiccup - Ravenclaw
[Bullet; Green]Jack Frost - Slytherin
[Bullet; Yellow]Rapunzel - Hufflepuff
IT's your choice.
BUT DON'T FORGET, THE MAIN CHARACTERS HA
Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright InfringementNever needed to keep a journal. I decided to install it today just to post this.Art Theft, Plagiarism, Copyright Infringement2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There is a terrible story about an user that had a complain about copyright infringment, in which she was not the owner of the copyright over the original character as the original belongs to Lauren Faust / Hasbro. The girl unleashed her fanbase (other than all the other pricks around the internet that have no other interesting stuff to do and find it funny) against a Community Manager, Administrator of Deviantart, which i find to be an otrageous thing to do.
I searched for a simple yet effective description of what Copyright means and i found it surprisingly non other than on the respective bashed admin's journal, as a very old entry.
Probably if the people would have bothered to browse and read, they would have been illuminated why the admin took the actions he did on the so often posted screenshot.
What I want to do here is to use the overall issue to compare the differences between copying, plagiari

Thank you for your interest in us!Book of Pandora Project Overview2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Our theme is a gift of Hope. One of the ways we are symbolizing this is through our mascot.
Our mascot is a blue box with silver stars; please read the description on this reference for more information. The idea is that this box will be fully closed at the beginning of the artbook, but as a reader flips through the pages, the box will open up slowly until, at the end of the artbook, it becomes fully open.
This artbook will be positive and contain hopeful, inspiring pictures.
The Book of Pandora is a charity artbook, and 100% of profits will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.

--firstly, can you figure out which ONE PIECE character's laugh appears in my title? I don't have much but 15 go to the first deviant who answers!
ok that was completely spontaneous
I said I will show you old art...:iconhurrhurrplz: I also wanted to say something to those who comment like "I'll never be this good" "I wish I had your talent" "When i see your art, I'm like ..what am I doing with my life...:iconlazypoolplz:"
- Firstly, I see my mistakes. I'm not as good as I want to be yet and there are thousands younger artists with wonderful art out there. Sure it's fascinating when a 10 year old draws a masterpiece, but instead of thinking "I must do my best too! Yosha!!" I see many comments with depressive thoughts. Age does NOT matter.
- ANYONE can become better at any age, you just need love and practice . Don't look at your art in bad ways when startin
EDIT AND SPOILER WARNING narusaku-naruhina-NejiEDITING THE JOURNAL AFTER SEEING CHAPTER 615....EDIT AND SPOILER WARNING narusaku-naruhina-Neji3 years ago in Personal More Like This
SPOILERS FOR 615 AHEAD!!!
Today's Hinata's birthday (DEc 27).
She had finally grown to be confident, her wish to be by NAruto's side and hold his hand is officially fullfilled in the most obvious way possible. I won't deny that aas much as I don't like naruhina, I feel happy for Hinata. She really deserved to be finally noticed by NAruto and be rewarded for her lifelon effort to do something for him and be useful to the person she loves.
I'm glad it happened...
And for the fellow narusaku fans - as much as the naruhina shippers go into celebration, I don't think this is it for the narusaku fandom. Actually....this chapter I view as a dot after the naruhina. Kishimoto has fullfilled Hinata's wish (which she deserved), he had shown that girls in love who won't give up can win the attention of their loved ones. Hinata will now fight side by side with NAruto - and at the same time, she accepted NEji's wish and learned so much from it, even u

Crap ton of icons**EDIT** So apparently there's a limit now to how many icons I can have in this journal, which is stupid as all hell! It's not helpful if you can't see them! So I'm gonna be posting them in the comments of this journal (unless they limit that too geez). Hopefully that'll work for now. I'll do it by sections so-! Sorry about the inconvenience, I really don't know what else to do, I dunno if this is a sub thing or not. I can't even separate them into different journals without it being cumbersome; i have too many face ones orz. So, I'll put new icons up here until there's enough of them to make another comment down below with them.Crap ton of icons3 years ago in Personal More Like This
