The them and us mentalityThe "Them versus "Us" MentalityThe them and us mentality2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The "them" and "us" mentality and how it negatively impacts us all
Its one of those things that unerringly pops its head up month on month, and its something that is frustrating, often hurtful and hard to read about. Let me explain some of my thoughts.. (warning I have a lot of thoughts I want to put down)
1. a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking.
2. a person who performs a service willingly and without pay.
We all say that when we see another user on the site with a volunteers title or a staff symbol, or whatever it is that marks them out as "different" something fundamental changes in our attitude.
Perhaps its envy, or jealousy or hate. Perhaps its simply respect and admiration and pride.
I would honestly LOVE it if it was the second set of emotions but I'm not going delude myself
Sharks are more important than you thinkThe Earth is an ocean planet. 99% of all living space on it is water, and 80% of all species live in the ocean. We know from decades of careful research that the oceans have shaped this world - whenever something happened to them, whenever life in the oceans changed, life on Earth changed as a whole. We humans are a wave of extinction, a new event that is suddenly rippling across the tree of life. And as we interfere so strongly with this complex system of interdependence that has taken its shape in millions of years, we change the only world, the only home, our species has ever known.Sharks are more important than you think4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sharks have lived in the oceans for over 400 million years, since before the dinosaurs evolved. As apex predators, they are critically important to the food chain in the ocean and have significantly shaped the world through time. Sharks are intelligent, have long and short term memory and the ability to learn. And they are afraid of us. Most sharks won't come near us if we are not perfectly calm, because

Console Generation RantThis generation of video game consoles has been completely off my radar. Even my fanboy lust of all things Nintendo can’t make me save up enough money to buy a Wii-U. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve become jaded over the last console war, or if I’m just moving on away from consoles into other avenues of gaming (ie: PC gaming), but something about this generation just defies interest for me.Console Generation Rant1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some of it is just head inducing nonsense like this: http://www.theverge.com/2013/11/8/5080750/xbox-one-day-one-patch-required-to-play-games The Xbox One requiring a day one patch TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES. I mean, when the Ps3 launched it required a day one patch to play Blu-Ray movies, that’s not so bad though since you could still play games. But the Xbox One comes out and you literally can’t do anything with it if you don’t have an internet connection. For how much you paid for that device that’s pretty shitty.
And all the consoles are doing crap

if you think it's porn, you're right..I've been here on DA for around 5 1/2 years now, and for the first 4 years I really didn't even use it. I posted some sketches and seemed like nobody was paying attention...if you think it's porn, you're right..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But that's quite all right. I'm not at all externally focused and I know that what others think (especially on the internet, on social networking sites) have absolutely no effect on what I choose to do or how I choose to do it. So you may ask, "why are you even on here?", and that is a good question. The reason I post what I do is a clear signal to the "universe" (for the lack of a better term) that this is what I have chosen to do. It's almost irrelevant what my viewers think of what I am doing because I'm not doing it for them. But that makes me sound unfriendly.. If you like it, good. If you don't like it, good. If you get rude or obnoxious or hypocritical, well that's annoying a little bit
So during this last 12 to 15 months I've been posting nude photos and my views have gone from 7000 to 110000. T

Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you

Octane vs Reality** Octane vs Reality **Octane vs Reality2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Gone are the days when my only option in Poser was to render with Firefly. Nowadays we have high-end 3rd party renderers available that offer a new level of realism that was never possible before. In this article I will discuss Octane and LuxRender.
Same Poser scene rendered in Firefly, Octane and Reality/Lux with a single HDRI image
First of all, let's see the pricing:
* Octane: $380 includes stand-alone renderer + integrated Poser plugin.
* Lux: free renderer + $60 Poser "Reality 3" plugin.
Now let's see the specs:
- 100% GPU render (extremely fast).
- Requires high-end video card with at least 1Gb memory.
- Renders inside of Poser itself.
- Preview your changes as you do them in Poser.
- 100% CPU render (slow), with option to include GPU raytracing (still slow).
- Does not require high-end video card, but high-end CPU may help compensat

Do YOU want to sell prints? One mistake you make.Hi people!Do YOU want to sell prints? One mistake you make.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today it is a short journal without photos, sorry.
I would like to give you one important advice, so I hope it can be still useful
I see many people try to sell prints here. And they are often sad they have not sold anything yet.
But at the same time I see they do the same mistake. So:
HOW PEOPLE TRY TO SELL THEIR WORK AS A PRINT?
1. you took a photo (drew a picture). It is nice, so you want to post it as a deviation.
2. you edit it. Making it sharper, more colourful, adding contrast, CHANGING a size to some 850x600px, for example.
3. you post it as a deviation.
4. you look at your deviation and think "hm, it looks pretty cool! Maybe somebody can buy it. I will allow it as a print."
5. you click at "submit as a print" and in "print submission" option you just scroll down and click at "SUBMIT AS A PRINT".
6. now deviation in your gallery has that cool "buy this print" green button and you are excited about somebody buying it.
7. you are disappointed that nobody bought it.
Project S.E.A.Project S.E.A.Project S.E.A.5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Some time in the not so distant past. I was struck with the idea of doing a special kind of feature, a personal pet project, where upon I would collate through three varying features, a whole based on my experiences of deviantart. I decided to follow three tenets: Support, Encouragement, and Appreciation. These tenets I observed and also adopted during my time with the community, especially the literature community, which is tightknit and full of the most nicest people you could ever hope to imagine.
Support happens all the time on deviantart. You might be unaware of it, yet it's there. Faving this journal is a form of support; leaving a simple "Well done!" on your friend's newly submitted photograph is another typical example. Praise is no bad thing and neither is criticism, so long as both are tempered in moderation. Just like s
