How to Write a Proper CritiqueIts my personal opinion that deviantART has a pretty good critique system, but what good is a wonderful critique system if you dont know how to write a proper critique? Most of the critiques Ive seen around here have been pretty good, but heres a guide that I came up with just in case you need a little help. =]How to Write a Proper Critique5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Dont forget to take this article with a grain of salt.

A critique should be useful.
A critique should provide useful feedback on the piece thats being critiqued. It should include what the artist has done right, what the artist has done wrong, and most importantly, how to improve.
Tell the artist what theyve done right.
Its important to let the artist know what theyre doing right not only because its useful knowing that, but because its encouraging. You never want to have your critique sound too

Understanding Sandor The Hound Clegane***This is my own interpretation of the character. I also added a few of my personal theories. Some might seem far fetched, but others are backed by proof. I am not a native English speaker so please forgive the eventual mistakes. Maybe nobody will read this as it is very long. I decided to put it here for future reference.Understanding Sandor The Hound Clegane11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I see a lot of people that have read the books but did not managed to read behind the words. A song of ice and fire is meant to be read behind the lines. It is very cryptic, filled with symbolism and almost every action and word has a second meaning. To understand literature you have to always go behind words.
The Hound is a byronic hero. You might laugh but other byronic heroes are: Bruce Wayne/Batman, Eric Draven (The crow), Heathcliff (Wuthering Heights), Lestat (Interview with a Vampire), Wolverine, Lord Byron, Victor Frankenstein (Frankenstein), Severus Snape (Harry Potter) and so on.

Homestuck AUSo I'm still stuck on the name for this thing...SO PLEASE HELP. But here's what I have so far regarding the trolls and why all the metal armor and things...Homestuck AU2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The trolls are all children who were born with genetic mutations that cause them to have gray skin and horns. None of them know that there are other children with the same mutation. When they reached a certain age they were pulled from civilization and taken to an institution where they were operated on. The institution is called E.N.G.L.I.S.H. and is run by the American government. It is a top secret facility and it's whereabouts are unknown. The trolls were turned into robotic fighting machines that are half human...cyborgs I guess. They were taught how to use their abilities in battle at E.N.G.L.I.S.H.(I have yet to figure out what that stands for....) The weapons are able to retract into their bodies allowing them to look human(besides the skin and horns). They are put into teams of three and have to fight each oth
DA IS NOT A PORN SITEThis is my favorite rant. If people come to DA for their daily dose of porn they need to look elsewhere. Very few images are pornographic on this site. The ones that are get reported. Why do we get hysterical overDA IS NOT A PORN SITE3 years ago in Personal More Like This
an image that contains a vagina or a semi erect penis. The human body is art in itself. I have seen some amazing images taken with a poloroid or phone. Obviously, the infamous crotch shot is not great art but so what. It does not hurt anyone and just remains a curiosity. Just because a vagina image gets 300 favs does not mean it is great art. It only means there are a lot of people that find vaginas in any shape or form exciting. A photo of a vagina or penis is NOT PORN. I would hope the adults out there would know the difference, since porn is so readily available. Also, DA must break down on minors entering galleries where mature material is available. I have had more trouble with children that can not handle mature content.
Have a nice day.

Looking for that look.Why do I take photos of naked women? First, I like to. Second, naked women are cool. Third, I am looking for that special look. That one of a kind smile. That one image that truly represents the model. Taking pictures of a beautiful women is not that hard, but getting that one image that you can connect with on another level is something quite different. That is what I am looking for. Any good model can strike a pose, but give me a model that is willing to show her inner self, is a unique model. When I photograph women, I try to break barriers and let the model control the situation. So, when viewing my images, look into the models eyes and you may see what I mean.Looking for that look.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Holiday Card Project 2012Holiday Card Project 20122 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

My Journal EntryCEA UPDATE: Clarifying the Definition of PornMy Journal Entry4 years ago in Personal More Like This
As quoted from DA Admin:
The official definition of " pornography " has been modified at several points over the lifetime of deviantART in an attempt to bring greater clarity in the wording used however portions of the community have demonstrated a tendency to be confused on the exact definition and continue to report things which fit their own personal viewpoints; today we attempt to clarify things.
The official policy for deviantART prohibits the submission of pornographic works. While the community as a whole, with few exceptions, agrees that this policy is required there are many who demonstrate a marked misunderstanding of exactly what is and is not defined as " pornographic " under the current policy. This misunderstanding often leads to many reports being marked as invalid due to the deviation not being officially considered to be pornogra

That being said, any offensive comments towards a member or an admin will automatically get you banned. Some of you ask questions, especially those of the Christian faith. That is fine as long as you truly wish to understand this religion. Now.... like any religion, if you wish to understand it, then you will read their book. I suggest you to get a copy of the Satanic bible (It is a short book.) by Anton Szandor LaVey.

RESPECTI am sharing this Journal from noted DA member Jean-Luc. http://jeanluc44.deviantart.com/journal/Respect-the-Models-Use-Common-Sense-333780989RESPECT3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's time to revisit the issue of "what can I safely say here and what is problematic." It's actually fairly simply, but the standard is non-negotiable and I will enforce it diligently.
Please know that any comments that are sexual, overtly or slyly, are not acceptable. While many of the models are nude or very nude, this isn't Penthouse or Hustler. We don't care to hear what turns you on or any of your sexual fantasies. Models routinely take a lot of risks in sharing their beauty with the world, and we will respect their professionalism and privacy.
You are not required to say only positive things about the models, but there is no reason for you to share your philosophy of "what is or isn't a beautiful woman." My belief is that all women are incredible beautiful; if you don't agree, this is not the right profile for you to visit.

saying goodbye to a friend...yesterday one of my cats passed away. mr pippin. he was 14 years old. I had had him since april of 2000. in all those years he had been a loyal and good friend.saying goodbye to a friend...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Its impossible to put into words what he meant to me. in all my long lonely and empty years my cats have been one of the few consistent sources of joy. I'll put it this way, he was in my life longer than my father was.
I knew his days were numbered. in 2011 he had gotten really sick. Pancreatitis. it was by a small miracle and a small fortune that he was nursed back to health. After that, I knew he wasn't going to live many more years and I wanted to make him comfortable. since then he's been up and down but always his happy self. In december of last year when I took him we found he had hyperthyroidism and a growth in his abdomen. I decided not to put him through surgery. by this point he was blind and his teeth were rotting away as well as other aliments.
Yesterday we found him laying on his side in pain. I stayed with h
Lasciatemi morirethe universe is one of gods greatest mistakes. I believe that one day while in the depths of an ether binge god gave a skanky hooker a rough ride. felt guilty afterwards and beat her to death with a shoe horn. tossed her in a dumpster then proceeded to pass out at timmy levenstiens bar mitzvah after micturating on the divan.Lasciatemi morire2 years ago in Personal More Like This
six months later while vomiting in a dumpster he came across the pregnant corpse of the prostitute he had killed. gods load is so potent that it can even knock up a dead whore.
this is how the universe came into being.
in a panic god tried to stab the fetus with one of the knitting needles he carries for such occasions.
the needle failed to do the job, however this is what killed the dinosaurs. this is why creationist deny they ever existed.
now the universe is the bastard whore child god never wanted, and abandoned in a 19th century english workhouse.
I've found the only way to make sense of the irrational nature of gods embarrassment is to deny rationalism exists

I was a nervous wreck in the weeks between us setting up today's shoot and the moment she arrived at my door. But, as Chelsea entered she completely put me at ease with her warm smile and kind words.
