Most Popular CharactersThe Most Popular Characters at DeviantARTMost Popular Characters1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever wondered who the most popular characters are at DeviantART?
I liked danlev's recent post on Trending deviantART Search Terms in October. It got me thinking about popular characters on DeviantART in terms of deviation count. I'm going to need some help with this research project.
Help Wanted, Reward Offered
Search for a character and submit the number of deviations found. You can post a screenshot or just put the number in a comment. Find a Top-10 character and get 100 points. Find a Top-50 character and get 10 points. Each person that faves this journal will get 1 point. If multiple people submit the same character, the first person gets the points.

Friendship/Misc.Guys, we need to have a serious talk. The more and more I talk to fellow writer friends, the more I realize how much we get abused. You can say whatever you want about this bullshit "popular" writers or whatever, but let me tell you something. I've had people comment one my stories, I'll give them a simple reply, and then 10 minutes later they're making a journal, tagging me, and calling me their "bae" or "waifu" even though I gave then ONE reply. Why do you think this is? They want to be "popular" by association or look cool because they want to seem like they're friends with me. All of my close friends here on DevinatArt have experienced the same. You'll talk to someone a few times, and Bam! Someone sends you a note guilt tripping you into writing a request for them because you're "friends" or you're their "senpai" or whatever.Friendship/Misc.1 month ago in Personal More Like This

How to Market Yourself on DAA question as old as DeviantArt itself;How to Market Yourself on DA2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
I've been in the community for 3 years,
Why do I only have 22 watchers?
I spend a lot of time on my work,
Why does my page only get 30 visits a day?
I try hard- why am I not noticed?
Why am I not famous or popular?
Thankfully for you, I know a few tricks of the trade and happen to have a brother that majored in business marketing.
Don't forget that DeviantArt is a social network along with being an art website. There are thankfully some cool things you can do to put yourself out there when you feel like you've already
Disclaimer: These are all mine and my brother's personal opinions. You do not have to agree with them. Please keep the comments free of negativity.
First and foremost, establish yourself with consistency. Consistency is what will make you easily identifiable and stand out from the crowd. This includes (but is not limited to) the title format of you

A Major Breakthrough!!! =DHere I was expecting this weekend's journal to be me complaining about how school was taking up a lot of my time and that I wouldn't be able to post as often. Well, I had a major surprise yesterday!A Major Breakthrough!!! =D1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Remember months ago when I said I couldn't get an advertiser for my website? Well yesterday I was finally approved, but I have more reasons than that to be so ecstatic right now. I was expecting the advertisements to generate a few dollars a day for just some addition income, but it turns out that the ads are generating a lot more than I expected. When I say a lot, I mean TEN TIMES what I expected!!!!!!
It's only been about 24 hours, so it's still a little early to estimate just how much this could total in the long run. However, according to the numbers I've been crunching over and over, not only does this new source of income blow out any I've been making so far from commissions or YouTube, but IT COULD NOW BE POSSIBLE TO THIS FULL TIME!!!!
I'm going to give the site a little bit more tim
Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Jenn from Dangerous Ladies @ DA
I had been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Outlining why I enjoy certain characters and who better to start out with than my favorite superheroine, Supergirl.
I feel slightly bad that I can't recall when I first learned of Supergirl's existence. After much thinking (and head pounding) my best guess is it was with the Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost. Now before I was a Supergirl fan I was (still am but as I say, Kara is easier on the eyes lol) a Superman fan. I know people call him boring, a boy scout, but Superman is the archetype superhero. Personally, I like the idea of an absolute good guy hero so Supes always will be one of my favorite heroes. So as a much younger Mad Man (minus my pen though) I watched STAS and fed my growing love of the DCAU. Then we get to Little Girl Lost and I meet Supergirl.
Nude modeling and Healing from TraumaI have discovered this is a common theme with other nude models I have met. Those of use who experienced childhood sexual trauma and later became a nude model is a catalyst for healing from the past, really a way to empower ourselves.Nude modeling and Healing from Trauma2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of my upbringing I was sexually abused by several people most notably my stepfather who later went to prison. In addition to the abuse I was not loved by my mother and had the responsibility for caring for my youngest sister during my teenage years. Already a classic introvert, I was extremely lonely and lived in survival mode everyday. My first taste of freedom was when I left home the day after my 18th birthday.
In my late teens I went to modeling school and for a few years was a model in the local town. Mostly fashion shows. Throughout the years I would do shoots for amateur photographers. Then in graduate school I had my first nude shoot in Big Sur, California with a professional photographer. It was my first taste of being comfortable in front o

Disney's FROZENHey everyone!Disney's FROZEN1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, it's been like a month since Disney's Frozen was released in theatres. Have you seen it? Have you loved it? Are you going to see it, or do you really don't care about non what so ever?
With latest addition of Frozen's mountain man Krstoff to my Disney Heroes Collection - I don't know if I'll do much more FROZEN related artworks, much like what happened with me and Tangeld. I like Frozen much more then I liked Tangled, but I still don't find the CGI visuals to be that inspiring as 2D hand drawn animation.
Though I might do some more Hans work - I LOVE LOVE LOVE him!
So the still celebrate the release and success of the film, here's a re-cap off all my FROZEN related work.
Hope you'll enjoy them.

Does Bondage art Promote Rape?And if so, what to do about it?Does Bondage art Promote Rape?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I started really chewing on this while reading some responses to Blurred Lines which referenced an article that linked "viewing images of objectified women to greater acceptance of sexual harassment and rape."
And it worries me a little.
Because AS a BDSM individual I happen to participate in, consume, and create a lot of art and activities that FROM THE OUTSIDE looks like women being objectified. Any member of the BDSM community worth his or her salt would tell you otherwise, that consent is at the very heart of a healthy Dom Sub relationship. Just read some of Shiniez' "Sunstone" if you had any doubts.
But the truth is the

So I just received this note to my inbox here on DA:
"David you are a blessed young man with TREMENDOUS talent ppl can only hope to aspire to but a spirit that has been hurt by so many ppl over "who you are". If u trusted and believed God like u say you do then trust Him when He says youre sexuality is not okay. u get scared because you dont know howw to"get rid of it" but its a spirit, i garuntee you. A member of a local church i know of had been delivered from that homosexual spirit that plauged Him for years!!! You may think it cant be done but if you believe in Jesus Christ and have accepted Him then there is NOTHING He can't do!!I say this with all the Love in my heart. God wants to bless you and turn you into a message for lost souls all around too^^"
How lovely it is to see that people hid their true thoughts behind compliments and smiley faces...
