thank you"there'll be days like this," my mama said, when you open your hands to catch and wind up with only blisters and bruises, when you step out of the phone booth and try to fly but the very people you want to save, are the ones standing on your cape, when your boots with fill with rain and you'll be up to your knees in disappointment but those are the very days you have all the more reason to say, "thank you." because there is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shore line, no matter how many times it is sent away."thank you1 year ago in Personal More Like This
things are different. they're happening. they're walking towards me and aren't strangling me the way they used to.
these are the facts:
- I can't save everyone, no matter how much I try or how much it kills me.
- I am never, ever going to give up on myself.
- I can make a difference; it'll show where it matters.
- the growth is so apparent now. it may not be getting better but it is changing. it's up to me what course th

Due to Twitter's updated API and the removal of their first API, which was the original foundation for deviantART's Twitter Widget, the Twitter Widget for Profile Pages has been updated to match Twitter branding.

Watchers Feature 1Beyond 30K page views and 500 watchers… it’s about time I said thank you!Watchers Feature 19 months ago in Art Features More Like This
It was a bit of a pickle figuring out how to go about this, but after some thought I came up with the following plan:
I’ll start with you who have been watching me the longest and move forward
featuring 20 of you in every journal
I will limit myself to photos (since I honestly haven’t a handle on other art forms on deviantArt)
with one deviation each … if you don’t have any deviations, then please accept my thanks anyway
and try to keep a weekly schedule
interspersed with other journals
… if I keep at it, and taking into account other journals and laziness, I’ll be done within a year… hopefully.
So here we go
thank you Gwen
thank you Jenny

How difficult it always is, to get stones for a costume in the right color, size and shape.
That's why I uploaded this tutorial today: How to make gems.
How to work step by step:
What materials do you need:
- resin and hardener
- tinting paint
- cups and spoons/ chopsticks to stir
- maybe a scale
- silicone mold for/ of stones (I bought it on etsy)
- aluminium foil
I DO NOT sell nude or fetish shots.Since I get these kind of requests pretty much every day I thought it was time to make a little entry about this.I DO NOT sell nude or fetish shots.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I consider myself an artist, not a fetishmodel (I know, I wear latex every now and then as well as corsets and high heels but I think they still cover everything and are just shiny, sparkly and pretty.). I like to wear clothes. I never did nudes and am not interested in it at all, even if it seems that some guys want to pay for it to have it in their "private collection".
Seriously. I like to earn my money with shooting pretty dresses and other things but I definitely won't sell any saucy photos to total strangers.
I don't even like to check my notes here any more because nearly all the messages are about commissioned (fetish-)photos, way too many details about the sexlife of people I never talked to before or dating requests. This is really annoying and every week I think I should just deactivate my account...
(Well, but I won't, no worries. ...at least not yet)

Artists on Writers - No. 2, Charles BukowskiArtists on Writers - No. 2, Charles Bukowski2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Issue No. 2|Archives
If the severely acne-scarred face and coarse exterior brought on by his alcoholic and depressed life was the book cover of his being, then Charles was the ultimate book that could not be judged by its cover.
The exquisite collection that was this everyman artist’s art consisted of thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels—mostly all wrenchingly autobiographical, mostly all about moments of epiphany and grace in an otherwise miserable and unhappy existence. The perfect explication of the common man's deepest truth; it's not easy to be here.
Unvarnished and brutal blunt force trauma underlined with hope, beauty, longing, and love.
Therein lies the power of his poet

I am moving (and offline for a while)I know it's been silent for a while.I am moving (and offline for a while)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I just got my first own house, and I'm currently in the process of moving there.
It's quite a mess at the moment. Moving boxes all over the place. There are a lot of things to take care of. And I don't even have a decent internet connection.
But in the end, I'm certainly looking forward to having my own place to work on my art and stuff.
So it's gonna take me a while until I'm up and running again.
In the meanwhile. Enjoy some epic music:
Update november 4th, 2013:
Well... I just got the key recently. So I can begin moving in. There's still a lot of stuff that I need to take care of. Buying machines, furniture, and that kind of stuff. But it's slowly moving forward. I'm expecting to be in my new house in a week or 2, or maybe 3. And I hope to have internet by then.
See you around~!
REMINDER: Photomanip Tutorial Challenge!Welcome to our official tutorial challenge!REMINDER: Photomanip Tutorial Challenge!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Another tutorial challenge? YES! Keep reading!
Part of "illumination" is learning, expanding our horizons, and helping others learn as well. So, this time we are not going to USE tutorials. Rather, we are going to MAKE them.
What you have to do
Your job is as follows:
Take a critical look at your gallery. What are your strengths as an artist? What are you really good at doing? Are you known for your light and shadow? Color use? "Glow" effects? Do you do skin well? Can you paint really well? Are you a master of masks? What do people compliment you on?
Create a detailed tutorial, with examples, of how you achieve this effect or do this technique. It does not have to involve the creation of a new deviation. You can explain how you did this effect in an old deviation or just with stock without making it a full deviation.

My Deviantart Story : How DA changed my lifeHi there, and first of all happy 14th birthday DA !My Deviantart Story : How DA changed my life7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well, it's time to tell you about my story here, and how everything started. I joined way back 2003, and have been an active member since then (I became a senior in 2007).
It all really started thanks to Ashlie devildoll who introduced me to the site and conviced me to create an account though I was a complete beginner. I never did photomanipulation before joining Deviantart, and as soon as I joined, I felt the urge to create. I was sort of amazed by the art of aleksandra ladymorgana and furiouskitten and instantly knew that I had to try.
Way back then, (I was unemployed at that time), I used to create an artwork per day (now I am happy enough to create a personal artwork per month). And I practiced a lot. I learnt so much from all the tutorials, from the comments and feedback, and managed to create some interesting pieces (after some
