My DeviantART StoryGottagetmeabadgeyoMy DeviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
So DeviantART is officially 14, how crazy is that? I've only been here for four of those years however (5 in December) and hell has it flown by. Let's feature some of the stuff I posted throughout those years:
I made this here account on the 8th of December 2009, so I was only here for about a month in 2009. I had moved over here from an old Warrior Cats roleplay site on which I posted a lot of drawings, of mine and other people's characters. After finding out that the majority of my other arty friends on there were making accounts here, I decided to join in and make one. I was super overwhelmed by all the talent here, and how to navigate the site and stuff. I got into the habit of posting my pictures here instead of the roleplay website I was on, since viewing and posting artwork was so much more convenient here.

Do not forget 755 555 Kiriban! It is really close.
I wish I could visit some ZOO, I really miss my photo trips...
But it is -10°C or even -14 °C a day, which is pretty cold for the Czech republic. I know that in your country such temperature might be common, but the Czechs are not used to it. My hands are freezing even with gloves and even two scarves are not enough to protect my face and neck from cold wind. So I do not feel like visiting any ZOO, I do not think it would be possible to stay near wolves and wait for a good photo
But please, keep your fingers crossed for me - on Sunday, I might visit one foreign facility which keeps black wolves!
Finally, there is some show, so I still hope to get some interesting photos.
I will soon edit my last journal, so you will see which animal species were featured in a "quiz" - http://woxys.deviantart.com/journal/Do-you-know-them-Animals-PHOTOS-KIRIBAN-283463082

Update 2: I made a new friend recently, Anne. She was very kind to post an article about me on her blog. There are many more details about me, my home and my situation.
Update 3: Hi dear friends, meanwhile we have a settled day for the hearing: August 19, 2014. Until that day nothing more will happen. And that means any more news will be after that. Please send us your prayers and good energies that the judge will have a good clear view on the situation and is willing to help us. I am not feeling very positive at the moment because there are other events and issues in my life that add to my current problems. The question how I will be able to pay the rent without taking on new inmates is only one of them. But I trust and courageously go the way of love.
Sorry for not being on DA lately. It's all a bit too

Who is that man?
Who walks in after bed-time,
Who staggers in the door?
Why does his smell burn my nose,
Why do his words hurt my ears,
Why does he make you cry?
Why does he keep coming back?
Night after night,
Just to disappear when I’ve woken in the morning?
Who is that man?
Who says such awful things,
Who’s voice fills the rooms,
Who laughs when I feel like crying?
Why do you let him throw you?
Why do you let him hit you?
Who is he that you let him keep coming back?
Who is that man?
Why does he hurt me and tease me,
Taunt me and tear me,
Cut me and leave me to cry?
Why do you reach out and beg him to stop,
Why do you tell him you love him,
Why do you tell him to change?
Why does this man,
This horrible man,
Why does he look like Poppa?

Frequently Asked QuestionsI get asked many questions and it can be hard for me to answer them all, so I have compiled a list of questions which I'm often asked in the hope it is of interest to some of youFrequently Asked Questions2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper.
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone elses (I keep them as proof) I a

Overthought, Underbaked: The Controversial New DA Logo
So, in response to requests for my thoughts on the new DA logo — and being disinclined to type the same response repeatedly — I will lay out my impressions here.
To paraphrase a certain swordsman: "You keep using that logo, but I do not think it conveys what you think it does."
The new logo is certainly clever, and as a designer — setting aside any resemblance to the platzkart.ru logo, accidental or otherwise — one can easily imagine the careful thought that went into its concept and execution, but...
If there is one thing that I took from my schooling in graphic design, it was the importance of clarity: of meaning, of import, of impression. This was true for any work, its composition, it layout, its style — its effective visceral message. Logo design, above all, is go
7 Notes On Deviantart's New Branding.A few people have asked me my thoughts on the new branding. I'm sure people are expecting scathing commentary or something sinister, but I'm not about that. The people working here are great folks, but I'd be remiss not to offer some constructive criticism about a subject I've practiced and studied for well over a decade (logo design and branding) on a site I've been a member of for equally as long. What better place to do it than right on the site itself?7 Notes On Deviantart's New Branding.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here we go:
1. This site is LONG overdue for a reimagining of its brand. It took balls to undertake it.
2. It took balls because the community at large will hate it. Not because it's bad, but because it's new, and different. Also, regardless, the community will come to accept it, good or bad.
3. For the most part, the new branding is nice. It's bold and art-centric. That's good. It's also nice to see a bit more color to the palette. That's been lacking for a while. Kind of odd they didn't do a larger overhaul of the site as part of t
Nothing to see, here.There are only a handful of names on my “block” list. You have to have been a monumental prick in order to earn yourself a place on it. I don’t hide negative comments about my work nor do I block people that write them. It’d make the world a very boring place if you edit it to show nothing but praise. The barbs are what make it interesting and provide points to debate and/or argue.Nothing to see, here.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I monitor content on DA via “browse” as it changes regularly and has work that the community thinks to be high quality. It’s generally where I spot artists whose material I want to see more of. Over the past few days, though, after posting a response to DA inexplicably choosing the letter “Z” to be their logo, people mentioned that the “Super Pretentious” cartoon had surpassed DA’s own “Boldly” journal on the “What’s Hot” list. Thinking that to be funny as hell, I switched to “What’s Hot” t

For long time deviantart was the place where I was able to hide my sorrow. But current events are blowing my mind, and I can not stop thinking about.
For ones who watch me for a long time it is no secret that I'm Ukrainian. For ones, who was watching BBC or Euronews these days it is not a secret that a tragedy have happened in Ukraine.
Here I just want to post some works by Ukrainian artist dedicated to the victims of that regime and our liberation struggle. Unfortunately I don't have all the portraits. I`m proud of my people and I'm out of despair to see what have happened. I think I had to do this. This journal is my silent scream.
