9.8 (Nine Point Eight) Lyrics -MiliNote: I owned nothing9.8 (Nine Point Eight) Lyrics -Mili2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Calla lily, carnation, daisy
Silently chase away your worries
Become your shield whenever you fall asleep
I cried out
Please don’t leave me behind, leave me behind
So you held me tight
And said I will be just fine, I will be just fine, I will be just fine
Petals dance for our valediction
And synchronize to your frozen pulsation
Take me to where your soul may live in peace
Touch of your skin sympathetically brushed against
The shoulders you used to embrace
Sparkling ashes drift along your flames
And softly merge into the sky
Aroma drags me out of where I was
Cream rose, stargazer, iris
Construct the map that helps me trace your steps
Zipped my mouth
I just keep climbing up, keep climbing up
Justify our vows
I know you are right above, you are right above, you are right a

Giving ThanksNovember, at least in the US, has been considered the month of "thanks". The national holiday of Thanksgiving happens to be the holiday of the month, as a time not only to feast and spend time with family, but to give thanks to all one is grateful for throughout the year. While we Lit. CVs are from all different backgrounds and not all from the US (BeccaJS, from the lovely UK ), we decided that this November, we would come together and give thanks, as well, to all of those who have suggested Literature DDs over the last year November 2012 to November 2013).Giving Thanks2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
As Lit. CVs, one of the greatest things we can see from you in the literature community is helping support others around you. You not only help us scout for new DDs to choose each day, but also help your fellow writers by getting their work featured, exposed, and hopefully more readers. You're shining stars in the community, and for that, we've decided to give you a small feature of your own.
See Your Watcher GraphOur of curiosity, I wrote this script that makes a graph of a deviant's watcher gain over time, starting with the day the deviant gained his/her first watch.See Your Watcher Graph2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My graph spans about two years and looks like this:
Interestingly enough, it turns out that the largest peaks correlate not with the days when I received a DD, but with the days when I wrote PE articles and landed in the footer. The DD's led to small peaks, but they are surprisingly hardly noticeable in the graph.
Anyways, thought I'd share since it's pretty interesting to see what your graph comes out to be. All you have to do is go to the page linked above and enter your username into the box.

A bit about social mediaThis video has been a hype on the internet over the past view days;A bit about social media2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's not the first time a similar message is send, and it's probably not the last time.
Over the years, I've seen many of those messages seen popping up on (how ironically) social media. And while the intention is good, I think the whole "quit social media" thing in general is a bit too one-sided. They don't realize that social media isn't just something we can stop over a day. It has become a collective mindset. A communication standard. Like phone calls and letters used to be our main form of communication in the 90's, social media now has become our standard for communication.
The matter is the same. It's just the medium that shifted.
I didn't have a Facebook account until late 2011, and I didn't have a smartphone until early 2012 (and that was only because my boss got me a new phone, and it happened to be smart). Yes, I was late. The reason for that? I absolutely hated the smartphone generation!

Setup to share.A typical setup would look something like this...Setup to share.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) A1-sized black matt paper, plus a black corrugated board as a common base for most of my shots. The Bras Basah outlet of ArtFriend is my best friend (no pun intended) when it comes to craft materials.
2) The transparent plastic tray that holds your nendoroid, it helps to produce great lighting effects!
3) The quintessential figma stand. That's how I get all of them to stand on their own. Most tedious aspect of the session, since it must be kept in the blind spot.
4, 5) Speedlights remotely triggered via my pop-up flash. Gel them, adjust their positions and output power till you achieve the desired effect. Heck, try out different gels too!
6) Another speedlight as key on a lightstand, and I usually deploy it with a 1/4 CTO for subtle warmth. Again, try out other corrections to achieve other effects!
7) In-package instructional leaflet as flags, so the background

Tea with T: Goodbye dA!Tea with T: Goodbye dA!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I've decided that I will leave dA. Don't get too sad, Chaz will keep the account so things will still get done, it'll probably just be a bit slow.
Why are you leaving?
Well, as most people know, I'm in the later stages of cancer and I'm too tired to spend my time on dA. My pain's at its peak, and the morphine makes things fuzzy. Now's the time I should be spending with my family. We're on a boat in the Bahamas at the moment, you jelly?
Really, I just wanted to thank those people who have talked to me and cheered me up when I've hit rock bottom. I'm not going to mention names, you know who you are.
dA's been a great outlet for me, especially after I stopped working. I've had a great time reading people's work, critiquing, talking to other deviants. I am genuinely really sad to be leaving the literature community. I wanted to say something really meaningful, but I just can't think of anything except thank you for allowing me to spend some of my la

Q: When was the first time you considered becoming a mangaka, and why?

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
My name is Denise Maritato and I was born and raised in New York. I have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil with the support and encouragement of my grandmother, a fellow artist. In 2005, I graduated with honors from The Pratt Institute with a degree in Communications / Graphic Design.
After college, I completed a two year internship at a fashion company in Manhattan NY where I designed clothing tags, labels and packaging for hand bags and accessories. I then went on to design balloons for Anagram International and finally found a home working for Amscan Inc. designing halloween costume packaging for the retail chain Party City.

Please do not ask for points for yourself or others, all you need to do is say something nice about another member you admire.
All comments begging for points will be ignored and hidden.
All comments unrelated to this journal will also be hidden (this is not a the place to advertise your own journals etc).
Happy Friday guys!
I regularly get comments or notes from people asking me to spare a few extra and while I appreciate that so many feel comfortable asking me something like that, the execution of many of those notes and comments are just plain rude. As a result I often ignore such requests and go about my business. However, I do enjoy spreading the love and helping with when/where I am able to.
I haven't done anything like this in a while but I figure it's always good and fun to revisit. So this is how t

I really need to get this of my chestI don't want to cause a drama and no hate to other dollowners, but I just need to write this off me.I really need to get this of my chest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday I got a PM from a girl. She was really mad at me, because she told me that Candy was a Rip off/copy of some other doll. This is now the 4 time that it has happend. Also at a convention a went to, a girl told me.. ohh look.. it's a ***** copy.
Candy is 'probably' a rip off of 3 other dolls. I won't call the names, because I won't cause any drama and i'm not mad. I also wanted to clear Candies name like, he is almost 6 years old and always looked like this.. but then I'm afraid that people will find me arrogant. And then i'm accusing someone else of copying my doll and that is something I won't do. Ofcourse you get imspired by other people. Everybody does and then you want to make something that kinda looks like that. So do I. That is human nature, and again i'm not mad, but now people are getting mad at me and accusing me for things I didn't do. I made Candy 6 years ago an

She had proposed an intriguing way of collaborating or 'reflecting' each other's work; by her choosing one of my fractals and writing a poem for it and I would choose one of her poems and design artwork based up it too. I think she has done wonderfully well don't you?
So I guess its my turn next
Now I have chosen this poem
And created this
And our next task? Well we will try to create a fractal poem (or a poem fractal?) Exciting stuff!!
Please do visit her profile as she has some great works of poetry and writings
