Positive mentions :)We, as beta testers, already longer had the pleasure to experiment with this nifty feature of the website.
But now it has finally went public: DeviantArt mentions!
So what does this mean for us, as users?
While you can change settings in your user panel, per default we all get mentioned when someone lists our name in a journal. So there will be no more talking about us behind our back. But on the positive side; you will be mentioned of all the people naming you in journals, or admiring your artwork
Spread the positivity!
Now we know this, let's all take a few minutes to let some people know we admire them or their artwork.
Comment in the comment section, with the people you admire most. Either for their art or their personality.
I'll start out to name a few
Let's say you have supernatural powers...For the novel I'm writing, I'm doing a bit of research. But my imagination only goes as far as my perspective goes. And as I have a certain mindset and a certain cultural background, I'm sure other people will have other ideas about the subject.

You have pretty awesome powers!
Although the usage of life-energy related powers are quite natural in your world... you're one of the few individuals that has mind bending powers. This type of powers are usually quite bothersome to learn, but you have a natural gift for learning that kind of stuff, which caused you to be able to do so ever since you were a kid. You cannot only read the minds of the people around you, and predict their actions, but you're able to manipulate their thoughts fully (and therefore their actions). All wi

It was a day like any other, and I was just surfing DeviantArt, browsing the many deviations in my inbox. While I did so, my eye wandered to something that was called an 'tutorial on manga anatomy'. As usual, I was curious about the content. And as the preview image was pretty small, I wanted to check this out. It seems like this girl, let's name her Abbey (it's not her real name, but I think calling her 'that girl' is so damn confusing) had made a tutorial on male manga anatomy. Nothing wrong with that, you'd say. But I've been following Abbey for a while already. I originally met her in the forums, asking for feedback on one of her fanart drawings. Mostly anatomy related stuff. I gave her some tips. We talked a bit. And I followed her soon after, as I thought her art looked pretty promising altogether.
Now, I didn't know Abbey in real life. But she was a beginning artist, nowhere towards a level

That art thief SOB in the Artist AlleyOk here it is, the long awaited journal about that art thief guy at Animania a few weeks back, I promised I will write about it and here it is. I thought a lot about whether I should write about this because if its just a random art thief then I really don't mind dissing his grass.. but unfortunately that S.O.B also happens to be the brother of a High School friend of mine... :icontableflipplz:That art thief SOB in the Artist Alley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This whole thing occurred in an anime convention that has been going downhill since a few years back, every year it gets worse and worse, to the point that I am now calling it Emptimania. It is no secret that the management is terrible, and that includes making sure that there are no bootleg stores around.... I don't know if they are just ignorant that there are bootleg stores there, or whether they dont give a duck because hey they get money from people getting a table. So anyway I was at the artist alley selling my things like usual, then a couple of tables down I noticed a guy, he looked fami

I feel, looking for a publisher is like looking for someone to adopt a blind dog. No one seems to be interested. Yet, every time I remind myself of all the privilege and the support I get, it stops bothering me. All it takes for these publishers is to "trust" and bury down the misconception they have about non-japaese artists but I guess it's pretty late now. I'll contact more publishers but I'm fine with self-publishing since I've been saving money for quite s

This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out

I've been busy speeding up the schedule so I can release my next webcomic, Fisheye Placebo as soon as possible. The current release date is set to early 2013.
That means Knite had to slow down a bit since it's difficult to work on 2 projects at once. However, I still aim to update Knite ch5 beta strips around once a week. You may have noticed that in the past, I posted Knite in full chapter flash format, but I really enjoyed posting beta pages on my :iconknites: account since this allowed more audience interaction. The problem was switching between accounts was too much pain, and updating several pages a day flooded people's accounts. In the end, I decided to post strips on this account instead. The strips will only be posted once a week so if you don't want to be spoiled, just ignore the strips

Whose life is it, anyway?All I do these days is write. Manuscripts, dissertation, course schedules and syllabi . . . it never ends. Tonight I got tired of writing, so I decided to organize something. The obvious choice for me was my CD (I just aged myself, I know) and blu-ray disk collections.Whose life is it, anyway?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Going back through the CDs brought back a lot of memories for me; some of them were from high school, which was more years ago than I care to admit. Each piece of music had a story and an attached memory, whether it was my beloved Def Leppard or some silly pop song. But, as I went through them and discarded what I no longer needed or desired, it suddenly occurred to me:
I'm not this person anymore.
At the core of my collection lay those things I treasure to this day. Evanescence. Def Leppard. Led Zeppelin. Old-school Aerosmith. Even the requisite Beethoven, Bach, Haendel, and Tchaikovsky. Things that make me cry. Things that make me want to sing along. Anthems that remind me

It is not often I feel completely engulfed with heartfelt emotions, so much so that it springs forth a surprising feeling, leaving me breathless. I felt the truest sense of this beautiful sensation on my birthday. I did not hope to seek out much – I only truly wanted to feel contentment and to enjoy personal memories of happier birthdays, with my momma. But, I cannot even begin to thank everyone for their outpouring of love and selfless generosity this past August, when affectionately going out of their way to make my difficult day so much brighter. Birthdays [hers and mine] are still the most heartbreaking anniversaries for me to face, but I was deeply touched by BloodshotInk's Birthday Article project. All of you overwhelmed me with your free flowing support, and it made me feel very blessed.
