Beadweaving Feature - StarsStar is one of my favourite shapes. And not just mine. Stars have fascinated people from the earliest times - both celestial objects and geometric shapes - and we have assigned different meanings to different star shapes. I don't want to discuss any of them. I don't care about them. I just wanted to show you how many different star shapes one can make with beads.Beadweaving Feature - Stars4 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Five reasons why Jesus' sacrifice suckedI keep hearing from people that I should be impressed with what Jesus did, and be grateful to him. Even if we assume that it's true, I'm not impressed.Five reasons why Jesus' sacrifice sucked3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) He knew he would be resurrected after 3 days. Why would you be afraid of dying very much under such circumstances? I wouldn't be.
2) He sacrificed himself to himself so that he could forgive. Why not save a step, and just forgive? There is no reason for an innocent person to suffer - it doesn't make the situation any better. Human sacrifice does not work. If you think it does, well you are a Christian.
3) He knew that he would spend an eternity in heaven after a day of suffering on the cross. The physical pain he felt is not very much compared to someone dying from cancer or hunger - and neither do those people have a choice in the matter. Also, any person in hell endures infinitely more physical suffering than Jesus did. They also aren't glorified for their suffering like a..
4) He wanted to be crucified, indeed that was his plan

Today I learned that asking someone to please stop complaining and whining on my page is the same as hate mail. xD Kids making new meanings for stuff never gets old. And apparently it gives you a low maturity level aswell. D8 what am I missing here?
Remember people dont tell others how to behave, it makes you immature and a hater. I knew I shouldnt trust my parents and teatchers, they are so immature and old compared to me so they cant go tell people how to behave.

The thing about popularityDa has so many popular artists... With over 1,000 deviations submitted daily, what can you expect? I see so many!The thing about popularity3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are proffessionals, those who are inspired to get noticed, those who just draw for the heck of it.
It is not always the best selection when it comes to these artists.
Now don't get me wrong, you see so many artists deserving to be famous! Since being famous in art is only a well known thing within a small group of people (in relation to entire population of course) it is nice to inspire that group of people. From what I have learned, art is a brain compacity that can have many consiquences. Having your brain focus on that so much can make you stay away from other things, or just make you flat out bad at them! If you are having hard times with everything else, why not be rewarded with a nice big inbox of people being happy for you, when no one can be happy for you in anything else? I have seen a few people who are telling the truth when they have high art "talent" and

Take your art to higher lever in 4 simple steps!
For people who are serious about drawing and want to make career in art! And for me to stop getting questions on how to practice, or how do you get better
Are you stuck and don't know how to carry on making great art?
You just want to draw better?
If an answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then you might find this interesting...
Since the only thing I ever acknowledged myself good at is getting better I decided to share a couple of tricks.
I truly believe it works in every single case.
It's true. You can get out now or shut up and listen and get better.
(oh and do I need to mention that you need to draw a lot to get better?
I didn't draw a lot and still got better because I followed the steps listed below. But yeah, may not work without drawing a lot...)
Step 1. Honesty.
Be aware of your own limitations. They're usually bigger than you really think, despite what people say. I won't be talking about fals
Advice for ArtistsNot too often, but at least once a month, I spend some time in the forums. I noticed that a popular topic was 'how to become popular on dA' (no pun intended). Here are some suggestions from my end of the spectrum. More on how to become a better artist in general and promote your art more efficiently (but I guess those are the key steps in becoming popular on dA, heh).Advice for Artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Post your art in as many places as you can
After posting a deviation, dA makes it easy to post it to other sites. Make an account on pinterest, tumblr, etc. Don't worry if you can't tend to it much, the point is you want your art in as many places as possible. This heightens the chance of people seeing your art, some of these users might even be on dA, as well.
Other suggestions are instagram, artician.
2. Focus on what you're good at
While it's fun to dabble in different mediums, the more mediums you work with, the less time you are spending "mastering" any one of them. I'd say 2
