Are perceptions slowing you down?Without the wonderful phenomenon of perception, we human beings would be highly confused creatures, unable to understand the world around us. On a more abstract and less biological level, perception plays a large role in how we form opinions. A lot of the world around us is based in absolutes, for example: apples are, and will forever will be, either red or green however, there are less rigid "rules" so to speak for other categories of "things", art being one of them. Art is a forever evolving animal, changing, growing, warping, and expanding. It crosses over boundaries and breaks through barricades, it whispers and shouts at the same time. Art is very powerful, infectious and potent. All of these things explain why we feel almost violated when we see art we do not like (which is a discussion for a later blog ) What we will be discussing here today are our perceptions of art. One of the many wonderful things about the arts (all of them, not only the visual arts) arAre perceptions slowing you down?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

I'm a member since ten years and in the past we had a first site with many creative works and awesome artists!
Now I can see just vagina and breast shots with a very bad quality and I guess that's a huge problem!
And that's also a problem from every other art platform in the internet!
When I upload a "glamour portrait" my work is in the middle of "spread your legs open" works and I am very sad when I see the quality.
I love Deviantart and know this site since the first day (from my beloved friend).
I use this site as board for my own works, for other artists and people.
I struggle with myself if I really want to publish my works on this platform any longer.
(No worries, I wouldn't leave, I would create a new private account or use my writer account, cause I have so many great friends here).

The reminder of this post is purely my personal story, as I felt I owe you an explanation for my absence, at the very least. So feel free to indulge in the going-ons of my life since I went into hiding.
During the latter half of last year, I was starting to lose my vision for my art. Why was I making art, for whom, for what reason...all these questions started to interfere with my drawings, and for a while, making art indeed felt like a chore. An obligation. A job. And that wasn't a good feeling.
I was overwhelmed with pressure to produce more art, be it for myself, for my watchers here, for whatever. The point is, it was causing so much unnecessary stress that I didn't need nor deserve.
So I went on self-imposed exile since late July, trying to find and rediscover what art meant for me.

How to : Find Art ThievesPlease this journal, so that a lot of people can read it.How to : Find Art Thieves2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I noticed that a lot of people don't know how to search for their photos on the internet, so here is a short tutorial. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about art thieves, but i still think it is important to look out for them.
1. visit Google.com
2. Go to the page of the photo you want to search and click "show image"
3. Copy the Link and paste it into google.
4. This page should open, click "search by image".
5. Now you can browse trough the results.
6. The less results the happier you should be.
EDIT : You can also use websites like : tineye.com and iqdb.com
This was pointed out to me by some people, personally i have no experience with them, but i am sure that they work too.
Artist's Toolbox: Dry pastelArtist's Toolbox: Dry PastelArtist's Toolbox: Dry pastel1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
A Pastel is an art medium consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder of a neutral hue and low saturation. Pastels have been used by artists since Renaissance, but gained popularity mostly in the 18th century, when a number of notable artists made pastel their primary medium. An artwork created in pastel is called a pastel drawing or a pastel painting. We mentioned pastel as one of traditional art techniques in a series of articles written for Traditional Art Weeks of projecteducate
Pastels cannot be mixed on a palette like paints, but are mixed on the paper by overlaying and blending. The exact composition and characteristics of an individual pastel stick depends on the type of pastel and the type and amount of binder used. It also varies by individual manufacturer. There are two types of pastel -
