Known and Unknown Digital Arts Feature #8Hello Everyone!Known and Unknown Digital Arts Feature #82 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There has been some confusion with these recent feature journals. They are to promote artist from the photo manipulation and digital arts community who are know and unknown. If you scroll down you will see a photo manipulation feature and a digital arts one as well. Also, in some journals I will do a staff feature, a stock feature, and a Film and Animationo feature as well
I wanted everyone to know if you are a features in this journal or are a digital artist we welcome you to join our group CinematicArts.

Update on art and what's to come (WIPs galore!)Just a little update about what’s been going on in my life lately! Since Idk, I haven’t been around. StressuuuuuuuuuuuUpdate on art and what's to come (WIPs galore!)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I write most of my personal stuff these days on my blog, so if you have a Tumblr, you're free to follow me. (Actually most of this babble is shit I've pmuch already written in my blog LOL)
Lately, I’ve been trying to look for a job. I’m spending a lot of my time just kinda trying to get out and talk to people, approach others, take every chance I get, answer the phone when it rings, etc. Lots of things I never let myself do before (I am a very shy person; I have anxiety issues, etc). I think even just handing out the few couple of resumes that I have has given me even more confidence than I had two months ago. I may even have a potential interview! *o*;;
But I guess :iconalexisneo: is coming over tomorrow, so I’m really excited for that LKDSG.
Something I've mentioned on my blog

XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX :iconkiwikku:XXXX GIVEAWAY CLOSED XXXX2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I think now's a great time to start the giveaways back up again- first with small ones, but building up to bigger and better ones in the future! It's always fun to give back to the people who gave me so much..
Welcome to the first in a series of weekly giveaways by Kiwikku / Moomin-Man
These giveaways are FREE to join and require no points to enter!- lotteries are not allowed on dA.
However, this giveaway is very special- and very sad.
A few weeks ago, I heard about the touching story of whisperwings, which inspired me to create a brand new arts endowment to help get smaller artists known- please read the full story here:
And there's more.
I've created a new group to give more people a boost-
This group's purpose is simple: Great artists, some with amazing art- don't get noticed because they have little to no watchers. I want to change that. And you can help. How?

Do's and don'ts for flawless interactionNot much to say about this.Do's and don'ts for flawless interaction2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Just some basic tips and tricks for flawless interaction on DeviantArt
Watch people when you honestly find them interesting.
Watch your friends, even if they don't have amazing art. It helps you stay updated with their progress.
Watch groups. They'll offer you a fine selection of art you're interested in, and will help you discover new (interesting) artists.
Check the faves of people you watch. As you like their work, you might have similar tastes in art. Checking their faves might help you find cool art.
Recommend art from people that you watch for a Daily Deviation (if good art, of course).
Uncheck all boxes when watching. There's nothing more disappointing than an empty watch.
