Tip of the Day: Believing is not DoingTip of the Day: A lot of times people might ask for advice and when they are told the answer, their reaction is "Oh I know that already." Believing in something isn't the same as acting upon what you believe in. Successful people DO the things they know they should do whether they like it or not.Tip of the Day: Believing is not Doing3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Marketing Yourself as an ArtistFood for thought.Marketing Yourself as an Artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
According to deviant DamaiMikaz, who went from having 500 to 20,000 watchers in one year, becoming popular on Deviant Art is a matter of good marketing -- not necessarily exceptional art skills -- and can be achieved by anyone who puts in the social effort.
As a social media experiment, she went about doing her best to be seen.
Strategies for being seen include: commenting extensively on others' artwork and providing in-depth critiques, being present in the forums and chat rooms, and writing lots of journal entries with thoughtful content that people will want to read again and again.
There's also the tried-and-true strategy of posting new artwork several times a week... though, the aforementioned artist admitted that she didn't do that. Most people find it difficult to produce quality pieces one after another, quickly, and continually. She's no exception. You can rea

Have an Adoptable Fund ready
Having some extra cash in your paypal or extra points in your dA helps you a lot in case you wish to purchase a limited hold-time adoptable. To avoid scamming, many adoptables artists ask for payment within a certain time frame (one or two days generally) and having a fund helps you when you see an adoptable you really want. Sometimes artists will let you put an adoptable on hold, but it's still better to ask first if the 'hold' option is available or not before claiming.
Find an Adoptable that you really like
Adoptables often come in sheets or maybe you follow a lot of adoptables artists and no one can deny that there's a lot of choice around dA. Since you finances are not unlimited, you might find yourself in the tight spot of choosing an adoptable over another. The point here is, you need to *choose*. Because asking both and then making one

20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience.
They were invited to a studio. Their hair and makeup were completely redone.
During the transformation, they were asked to keep their eyes shut.
A photographer then immortalized the moment they opened their eyes.
This discovery allowed them to forget their illness, IF ONLY FOR A SECOND.

Things That Are Wrong with "Elementary"First of all, in case you haven't suspected already, I am about to begin another rant. So be prepared. This time, it's about the infamous BBC Sherlock American ripoff called "Elementary."Things That Are Wrong with "Elementary"3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I must say that I am usually quite proud to be a citizen of the United States of America. I'm proud to be in this country: even if its citizens can sometimes be stupid and ridiculous. But I also have to admit that I have never been more disappointed of a handful of my fellow Americans until this day. I mean...really...what is this crap?

Significance is BeautifulLacking wisdom of my own, I'll share some more from Robert Henri (1865-1929):Significance is Beautiful8 months ago in Personal More Like This
"In my understanding of color, there is absolutely no such thing as color for color's sake. Colors are beautiful when they are significant. Lines are beautiful when they are significant. It is what they signify that is beautiful to us, really. The color is the means of expression. The reason that a certain color in life, like the red in a young girl's cheek, is beautiful, is that it manifests youth, health; in another sense, that it manifests her sensibility."

just opinions, there is no more validity to them than to anyone elses
so, let's start with frozen....
i made a huge mistake before frozen...huuugeeee mistake.
i listened to that let it go song....
now, what follows is an example how one small thing can snowball into a huge friggin thing... see what i did there ? snowball?
so i listened to that song.. and ..um.. it sounded glorious... but it also sounded like an anthem to coming out of the closet.... i mean, i deal with subtext a lot. and even i have seen people see more in my own writing than i intended. rarely but it happened. so subtext is hardly a new thing ...
we are talking about a song that says
don't let them know don't let them see , be the good girl you always have to be
conceal don't feel don't let them know... well now they know...
and this is just some of it... there is this vibe of a sexual liberation in the s

the mind of me, sodden,
here is the mind i tried
to drown -
i think my mother,
she gave birth to an ocean,
a child unsteady
and blue, she says
the stormy seas give
the best pearls of wisdom,
i don't care, i just want
out of the water -
i will take art therapy
when i am twenty one,
spend ten minutes painting
my arms blue, poke my finger into
a pile of fish hooks, imagine
if that was your mouth -
she says put it on paper,
be gentle, be gentle,
ivory, i'll always need ivory,
rabbits slit down belly
to tail, here to here,
i'm not a child - i draw christ
with a cone on his head and
say he was pulling his stitches,
hyenas, red, bloody and
cackling, i draw that son
of anger and the insane dog
that bit me, leave the paper
white white white and say
i'm not that anymore
(lena says doesn't that mean you're a satanist or something?)

R.I.P Robin WilliamsI am totally stunned by the news of the passing of Robin Williams. I don't normally get very emotional about celebrities but I really am upset and shaken by this, lots of tears today.R.I.P Robin Williams9 months ago in Personal More Like This
He was and will always remain a legend in so many ways. I grew up watching him in one of my favourite Disney movies as a kid, Aladdin and of course Jumanji, Hook, Mrs Doubtfire and so many other movies, he was so diverse I loved his comedy and serious roles. Even if I didn't like a particular movie he starred in very much he would always be awesome and would make it worth watching as he had such a great and unique voice and wonderful energy and talent.
This morning the kids and I watched Robots, the first movie of his I could find as our little tribute to him.
R.I.P Robin Williams, you will be sorely missed.
