My New Journal + FeatureLast time I mentioned I got a sub. I went right to work trying to pretty up my page. I created this journal to match. I did come up with the design myself, but it's still a work-in-progress.My New Journal + Feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I purchased my first deviantArt commission. I think commissions are fun and I'm going to start collecting them.
It's my first feature since my long break. I featured a lot of my active watchers. I couldn't get everyone though, because this journal would get too long. I will get you guys next time!
My First Commission
This is a commission I received from Grovyles. I was in awe of
her ghost pokemon (see below) and wanted my smilin' flower
drawn. I'm really happy with the way it came out. The petals
are my favorite part.
I was given a sub by VerticalDubai. Thank you! I recommend

2012: Year of the Dragon
DRAGON CASTLE by randis
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2012 has ushered in the year of the dragon upon the world stage.
In addition to occupying an ages old position in our cultural consciousness, legend and folklore surrounding
the dragon mythology has long been firing the kiln of our dreams with fright and menace. When we are speaking of
Dragons, we are speaking from ancient texts gathered form the beginnings of kept records of any kind and fro
The Story Behind the PhotoEvery now and then or at least for now, twice a week, I will be posting up a Journal featuring an exceptional photo and the author's story of how he/she captured that particular moment. Many times, we come across amazing photos on deviantART and wonder what the story was behind that capture... who was involved, where it was taken, how it came to happen, and so forth. I thought it would be interesting to find out of a few of my own favorites, so I contacted a few photographers asking them for a quick summary of their stories. This week's feature is one of iNeedChemicalX's incredible shots. Check it out.The Story Behind the Photo3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Take me to the Northern Lights
The story begins on a summer's day, one year ago, with me and my he. The photograph happened spontaneously - a friend who was with us was playing with the camera, "pointing" it at us. She took plen

Eclipse Of My heart by I-Heart-Photo
Okay, how to start? The shot was taken after I finished school and my parents gave me my first camera as a present. It was a Sony Cybershot, which had a really good macro mode. Around the same ti
6th Daily Deviation and why I might leave DAHello all,6th Daily Deviation and why I might leave DA7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Finally have a little bit of time to catch up on all things DA. It was a great surprise to receive my 6th Daily Deviation a couple of weeks ago for my image "Before The Storm"
I once again must give a huge and a big THANK YOU to the legendary Nancy :iconAnoya: for featuring the image and an equally big thanks to :iconRazielMB: for suggesting it.
On a sour note, I am so disappointed in how DA displayed my last image "Burning The Midnight Oil" that I am thinking about leaving here for good. For someone who almost shoots exclusively night time images where subtle shadow detail is important for the overall feel of the image, the continued use of the horrible bright DA green to display our art on, which does absolutely nothing to display a piece in it's best light, is disgusting. I have a properly calibrated computer monitor and I recalibrate it every week so I know exactly what I want to show the public in

The Street Photography of Chris Weeks
It was only after many long frustrating hours of trying to describe what’s so special about the photographs of cweeks...
That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the
