Please help support us by the article and contribute your thoughts and opinions on the matter.#01 Constructively Comment in 5 Quick Steps!8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This article will list five easy ways to make your comment constructive. What many people do not realise is that a constructive comment does not have to be as long or as indepth as a critique, and that you don't need to be an awesome commenter or an awesome artist to write a constructive comment. You probably won't have to spend more than 5-10 minutes writing a constructive comment, and it could still be helpful to the artist.
Here are the steps that you can take to make your comment more constructive:
State the things you like about the piece.

Traditional Art FeatureHalloTraditional Art Feature6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am about to embark on the week from hell (somebody stop it!)
Yep - I am staring down four 12 to 16 hour days (10-14 in creative workshops, 2 commuting), then the last day shouldn't be too bad (good, cos I figure I'll be nonsensical by then).
I'm taking my camera with me to see if there are any goings on worth recording, and might sneak a peek at dA through my phone, but for the most part I might get a quick post in at night before hitting the hay.
So I thought I might do a rolling feature - add a new category of art each night.
So first up - Traditional Art (excluding collage, which I'll do separately).
Freestyle Feature - January 13thAnd here's my second freestyle feature. This one and every feature thereafter will be shared on my Facebook Page and Twitter as well: facebook.com/nodokava, twitter.com/nodokava. Those of you who are on there, please Like/Follow. I always Like and Follow back. If you also have a Page, I'll include you in my Featured Likes. Glad to see a pretty good variety this time.Freestyle Feature - January 13th6 months ago in Personal More Like This

DA pointsAlright, I've seen this happening way too many times and I want to say something about it.DA points2 years ago in Personal More Like This
100 DA points is not not worth much.
You can buy 800 DA points for $10 USD.
800 divided by 10 is 80.
80 DA points = $1
100 DA points = $1.25
If you're offering commissions for 100 points, you're being paid $1.25. If you're offering 100 points for a prize on a contest, you're offering $1.25. I've even seen 50 points ($0.63) or 20 points ($0.25). I don't know how much it is in other currencies, but I can't imagine it's much.
I spend at least 3-5 hours on a painting. Minimum wage is $7.50 USD where I live. That is not even enough to live on if you're working full time, so I expect to make at least that much for every hour I spend on doing art for someone else. If 80 points is $1, and minimum wage is $7.50, then the minimum cost for a commission that only takes an hour is 600 points. When I open up my own commissions, I take sketches for $10 and paintings for $20+ Depending on how much time it takes,

Ramblings about 'internet fame'A lot of stuff has happened lately in life lately, and is has made me think about things, and about my perspective on it. One of those things, is the internet.Ramblings about 'internet fame'10 months ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you know, I'm a huge nerd. While as kid, I didn't had a computer at home, and I hated those damn machines because I wasn't able to work with them at all (so much fail T__T), I soon caught up when I got my first computer at age 14. And while most of my family expected me to end up as a hopeless internet addict, I soon started to learn myself how to program. The rest is history. With my 26th birthday, I also celebrated being a webprogrammer for 10 years already. Oh yeah, I'm getting old for sure.
The recent chain of events have caused me to think about the internet and it's role in life, however. When I first started out with art, I was only a little girl. Me, and both of my younger sisters, were all very creative. And we spend almost all of our time drawing at the kitchen table, while discussing about the characters we

Day-by-day almost finishThere is only 2 days left of the bunny's day-by-day.Day-by-day almost finish7 months ago in Personal More Like This
He is almost 2 months old and he doesn't grow more.
I want to share my favorites photos of the bunny. I want to know what are your favourites photos of this project.
The first photo, this is the beggining of all the project. I like this photo because you can see a little thing that later become something big.
I like the position of the bunny.
In this photo the bunnie seems very small, he feels cold.
I like the contrast between the bunnie and the bacground. I like his ears too. This is my favourite photo.
Now, I want to know your opinion. What is your favourite photo?

How To Get Me To Donate PointsI've been feeling generous lately, and admittedly have been donating points to certain Deviants who have started donation pools on their page. As a result, others have actually started requesting I donate points to them. So I thought I'd tell you what inspires ME to give points, and quite possibly might get others to donate to you also!How To Get Me To Donate Points4 years ago in Personal More Like This
RULE # 1
Don't directly ask me for points. It's a major turn off, and I will automatically deny someone points for asking. Don't send me a personal note, and definitely don't ask on my wall. I gave points one time to someone this way, and only because I really liked their gallery. Besides, asking me feels intrusive, because all the Deviants are people I've never seen before! People on my friends list will get points before strangers. Now that's not to say a journal post about having started a donation pool and what it's for is inappropriate, but I'll get to that later. Just remember, looking a gift horse in the mouth is not proper etiquette.
RULE # 2
I have changed my home page nameHello to all my friends, readers and viewersI have changed my home page name4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have changed my home page to HomeOfBluandShadows(I forgot to upper case the S), but this new name will give me a fresh start of something new, I love my shadow with my heart and love I can possible give to him, he is my world of love, care and comfort, he is my true love of the animal world, and nobody can ever take that away form me, he is locked in my heart for all eternity, so I love to take photo's and take photo's of him, and the camera does capture his moments very awesomely , he poses very well and I love to show him off, he deserves it very much, so in honor of my loving dashound of 13 years of my life, I dedicate this home page to him and share his life he has to the world and to show how much his life means to my heart, by sharing my home page with him, he may not talk like we humans do and say his peaceful words to this page, but his photo's

Street Photography for dummiesStreet Photography for dummies3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What do we need to shoot a Street picture?
1. A camera
Whatever kind of a camera is good. Either it is a ridiculously expensive rangefinder or an unbelievably cheap point and shoot compact. Either it shoots digital or it shoots film. Either it weighs a ton or it weighs few grams. ANY camera is fine as long as you have it with you.
2. A public place
This can be out in the streets or at the beach or inside a hotel's lounge or in a diner place or inside a supermarket or a mall or a school or whatever PUBLIC place. This public place must be visible in our picture. And things must be happening in this public place.
Exactly, people! We need people in candid situations. Definition of "candid" from Merriam-Webster's online dictionary: "subjects acting naturally or spontaneously without being posed" Definition of "candid" from Wikipedia: Candid photography is best described as un-
