Budget Art Tablet ReviewsThis is review is of older model alt tablets - but still search engines. I am leaving it because Huion P608n models are still floating around and are a good deal - also added some linux info - why? Many reasons. I am a Linux enthusiast. Linux is the Un-cola (for those who have seen retro advertisements - 7up used to advertise itself as the Un-cola) of the soda pop world of Operating systems. Windows being Coke, and Apple being Pepsi. The P608n has been replaced by the 680s. The 680s has the same specs but I read at another source stating they have improved certain aspects. The HA60 sold by Monoprice and other resellers was extremely successful. A competitor of Huion - Ugee has decided to keep selling this model but with a full 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity. Other reviewers have been busy testing newer higher end models. Ray Frenden is one such person (google). The flood gate has opened since I first posted this. The makers of these alt tablets have realized there is a decent markBudget Art Tablet Reviews2 years ago in Personal More Like This

10 Years on deviantART!So like, woahhhh. 10 years. Crazy. How did time pass by so fast?10 Years on deviantART!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It doesn't really exactly feel like that long ago when I first started visiting dA and now it's already been a decade.
So kinda for myself (and also anyone possibly interested) here's a journal post recapping my last 10 years~ (Also sort of my journal in photography too, I guess.)
May 17 2002
I signed up on dA when someone in the drawing group I hung out with told me to check out his works here. I was only 14 then. I didn't use dA a lot at the time because it looked like this: http://web.archive.org/web/20030426063919/http://www.deviantart.com/
I was on a 15" 1024x768 display and the ad banner + dA header took up half my screen on every page load. Did not like. >_>
I dropped by dA every now and then, in Sept I suddenly found it a lot more user-friendly, the new version: http://web.archive.org/web/20030922013355/http://www.deviantart.com/
I added dA to my daily visit and I started mak

Look, I know you are struggling and I understand that moving on and stepping forward has been so hard for such a long time. I understand how difficult it can be to trust that not everything stays horrible and bad; that there's somehow a light out there amid the darkness. Trust me, believe me, I know.
For the most part you'll read this and be skeptical. How could anyone know what it's like but you? Surely this is just another one of those posters on the bus stop, another one of those cheap 'hang in there' slogans brought on to help stave off an ever growing population of graves, more and more of which hold occupants of their youth rather than of the ages.
But this is not that kind of message.

Why I Write So I've been seeing a lot of poetry floating around about why people write. I thought, well, I might as well do one as well But I don't want to make an actual deviation out of it because this isn't actually going to be a poem. I don't think.Why I Write2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been through some stuff in my life, it's not as extreme as some have it, but it is there. There's been lots of pain, sadness, confusion, rage, teenage angst (I had to add it), unrequited love (or just half assed crushes that never got anywhere), blood, sweat, and tears, etc... Either way, the point is that I've been through more than I can say for a lot of my fellow peers (at school, mind you. It seems everyone on deviantArt has some sob story one way or another). I wouldn't say I write to convey my feelings, opinions, thoughts, and emotions, though that is a huge part of why I do.
I'd say I write to find. I write because I want to find others who feel what I feel, who think what I think, who experience what I

Changes to the Prints AgreementChanges to the Prints Agreement2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
As part of a general review of the Prints Program we noticed that the Prints Agreement needed clarity.
We changed the way in which we describe pricing because we have changed the way in which pricing is displayed during the submission process.
We also wanted to clearly explain the impact of promotional offers on the Artist Profit.
More than two years ago we blended the Premium Print Program with the Premium Membership (they used to be different). We have now updated the language in order to better distinguish the differences between Premium and Standard Print Program features in the Prints Agreement.Finally, we fixed some word choices and grammar to make the Agreement a better read.
To compare the new Prints Agreement with the former Prints Agreement click here. (We've provided you with a helpful document that shows all of the language that has
Clarifying an Issue with Stock ResourcesThere appears to be a fair amount of misunderstanding on the subject of stock resources so what I would like to do today is attempt to clarify several issues which are of importance to the artists who generously provide stock resources to the public for use and hopefully dispel the confusion and misinformation which is beginning to circulate.Clarifying an Issue with Stock Resources2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The first issue at hand is in regards to your personal stock terms
Your Personal Stock Terms
Officially deviantART maintains only one "automatic" restriction and that is "No Commercial Use" and that particular restriction can easily be overridden by the actual stock provider.
We only ask a few things from you in return;
ArtAs the year draws to an end, we'll look back at all the things we've done, we'll contemplate life and everyone who has come into and or who makes our lives richer each day, we'll have lost loves and friends, we'll have been unconsolable at times, there'll have been tears and smiles. "December was dark" you all know one way or another that your work enriches my life, you are all artists and you all insipire me, so please share with these artists and enjoy their art as i haveArt2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Poetry Basics: EmotionsEmotions in poetryPoetry Basics: Emotions2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Writing, at its very base, is communication. We write to communicate — with someone else, with ourselves — when we write, we arrange words in a manner that is intended to be read. This is very important because, no matter what or how you write, this one basic fact never changes. If you get stuck at any point, you can come back to this sturdy foundation. I am writing to communicate; what do I want to communicate?
Often, the answer is emotions: how you feel, or how you want your reader to feel. As Gregory Corso wrote, "You must feel! It's beautiful to feel!"
We all feel, but how we express our feels is a matter of perspective. If we are too flippant with our choice of words, our readers will think we are shallow. If we are too brooding and deliberate, our readers may find us incomprehensible. Finding a balance takes work and dedication.
But that work and dedication is what distinguishes
