Basically, I noticed a part of my profile seemed a little blank, so I decided to create a custom box on my page dedicated to featuring deviants of all talents weekly . The box will feature a recommended friend, and the deviant that recommended them. It will also include a tidbit about the recommended friend, including why you should check them out Each duo will be up for a week, and at the end of the month, I will collect all of th
EXPERIMENT RESULT (HOW TO GET POPULAR ON DA)So for the last couple of days iw been researching a couple of things regarding popularity on da, and what people likes, and watches you for. And id like to publish the result.EXPERIMENT RESULT (HOW TO GET POPULAR ON DA)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Just so you know, getting popular on da don't really help you improve ur art skills wish to me is the most important thing of all.
First of all, i hawe to tell you that i named submissions after the style i used, for example:
Submission 1A here and submission 1D
The 1A style is Thin line-arted with colorful shadows, and 1D is semi realism.
The 1A style allowed me to produce more art a day (since it takes less time to produce).
I submited around 2 a day and gained 8 watchers a day. But not much comments and favs. Since The 1A submissions where so close in date, my watchers could not comment on all of em.
But the styleA FAN ART got much more attention.
Fan art gets more attention since they often have huge fan bases. So when people
Don't let anyone belittle you or your work!I've been catching up a lot on dA since I got back and have been a bit surprised by some of the things going on. I've noticed that some of the wonderful artists I love and admire are being pushed aside for some ... interesting works. I won't get into a debate on this, at the end of the day, this is just my opinion. But how can a quick sketch that has been edited in photoshop to add some sparkle, outrank something that someone has put 30+ hours into and is pencil perfection? I don't understand the world anymore. Anyway, I just wanted to say I still appreciate your work and dedication .. for what that's worthDon't let anyone belittle you or your work!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The next thing I want to say, and this is based on observation and on a conversation or two I've been having. Have you ever felt belittled or put down in your art because someone tells you that 'it's not the right way'? I have some issues with this and felt the need to vent a little bit, so I'll list my wafflings below

Hey everybody.. Requests are OPEN [READ BELOW]!This is pretty important. I know I've got tons of ghost watchers who pop in for contests, but I really need your help on this- everybody's help. So, if you are one of them, if you only ever comment on one thing, please let it be this.Hey everybody.. Requests are OPEN [READ BELOW]!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I want to know what more I need to do to get better in my art. What are the biggest mistakes I make each time I draw and paint? I eventually would like it where people watch me because they like my art and stories, but I know that everything I have- my whole portfolio just isn't good enough yet.
Here are some things I think are wrong:
Why my artwork still sucks:
Little to no contrast in background and subject.
Poor shading and lighting
No perspective/boring subject matter/draws the same thing all the time.
Bad/lame composition- why is the subject ALWAYS in the middle?
Dopey expressions and faces.
I just cannot get my arms to work.
And to be honest, it bores the hell out of me. My art bores the hell out of me. I think that that's a seriou

Commission Advice for ArtistsI'm not an expert on the matter, but given I've spent eight or so years officially doing commissions for people, I'd like to say I've spent a fair amount of time in the field of dealing with clients and exchanging art for money. So for those artists, young and old, new to the game or veterans just starting to consider renting their talents to people - I have some minor advice you can take with a grain of salt. I've been seeing a lot of posts on the matter on Tumblr and I just felt like speaking my thoughts on it a little bit. Hope you don't mind.Commission Advice for Artists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, if you're considering doing commissions for the first time (or starting back up), or you've never done them before because you were too afraid or intimidated, here is some advice for you from the perspective of a full-time freelance artist who has spent the better half of her last 8 years of artistic creativity working on art for other people.
1. Never work outside of your comfort zone.
Though some people may think
Some news for you.UPDATE: WEDNESDAY SEPT 25, 2013 – Ok everyone. It's way past 3:30 now, I've already allowed you extra time. But I'm very disappointed that most people who entered before did not reenter. I've left a list of people who are not allowed to enter because they missed the deadline – however, if you didn't enter before then feel free to enter now. DOUBLE ACCOUNTS ARE NOT ALLOWED. If I catch you I will block you and both accounts (or more of them) will be disqualified for all of my contests and giveaways.Some news for you.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
UPDATE: TUESDAY SEPT 24, 2013 – know that the Wednesday deadline is for people who have PREVIOUSLY ENTERED THE ORIGINAL GIVEAWAY ONLY. If you didn't enter the giveaway before and would like to do so way after this Wednesday (tomorrow! one day left guys) then go ahead! It's completely fine. (The deadline thing is only to see who's still in. I want to know that you haven't entered and then forgotten about it – I did mention that watching me would come in handy, didn't I?)

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~!
I miss the old symbols but...I've been a member of this community for more than 8 years, I'm certainly not the oldest member here, but I think we all can agree 8 internet years are like a short eternity, it's a lot of time and just to prove it, tell me; how many sites have you been a member of for at least 8 years? I can only name one, and that's deviantArt. Also, 8 years are the 61% of the 13 years this site as been alive, so I've been here for more than half of this site's life.I miss the old symbols but...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As an old member of this site, I, like a lot of you, also miss the old symbols.
As stated on the official article, there are a few things that have been part of the site for a long time, without which deviantArt wouldn't feel like deviantArt, like the characteristic green layout or the user symbols that until recently, were part of the site.
I agree it does feel weird, the symbols I grew up with, so to speak, as an artist, are

FRIDAYS AT 8:30PM & 12 Episode TitlesThe premieres are doing well against overall cable, but that earlier time slot is pretty much a ratings graveyard so the numbers are down compared to Book 1. I never worry about this stuff too much, but obviously the network needs to. (I’m not sure why they moved it from Saturday mornings in the first place, where it was doing quite well, but there is usually some larger plan in place.)FRIDAYS AT 8:30PM & 12 Episode Titles1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Whatever the case, the episodes are still flying off the virtual shelves on iTunes and watched a lot on Nick.com. They always seem to find people eventually, which is what matters most to me (hopefully they’ll patch things up with Netflix or find some comparable digital streaming outlet soon). But I would hate for people to get confused and frustrated this Friday night if they don’t know about the change, so I’m trying to help get the word out. Thanks!
The first twelve of The Legend of Korra Book 2 episode titles have been released!

Congratulations to :icondeathgoddess231: who won the giveaway.
For those that didn't win; keep following my journals.
There are more giveaways and features coming in the near future
Like some of my old watchers know, I have a premium membership giveaway for watchers at the end of every year.
In most of the previous giveaways, I always asked my followers for a good reason why they'd want a premium membership. I used to read all of the messages, and picked the one that touched me most.
However, with the current amount of watchers and messages I get on a daily basis, I realize this will be hard to keep track of. Let alone picking just a one from that huge group of people. Because I'm sure there are many of you that have interesting story's, and all of you have your reasons to want such a membership.
That's why, this year, I'm going to do it in a different way.
If you want to join, read along!

There has been a murder...There has been a murder...1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I was invited to this great event, the party of the century they called it. Everybody that matters was invited, so obviously I was there.
However a happy ending wasn't meant for this story. I don't know the details yet... but it seems that the organizer and the person who invited me is not alive anymore...
There has been a murder in the castle! But who was the victim? who did it and what exactly happened? All will be disclosed in due time.
The victim seems to be someone close to The King, so his royal highness is calling for detectives to discover this mystery.
If you're interested then I recommend you +devwatch Halloween-HQ for the details to start this investigation will be out really soon.
