Appreciation and some advice for beginnersI have had this journal in mind for quite a long time, thinking I will find a time to write it down after I find a job (so that I can give 'advice' as a professional ). I've been less active in the past weeks since I was on a probation in a game company and I thought I would make it this time, unfortunately today I was told I have to go back to job hunting again. Anyway I'm not gonna wait any longer since some of my fellow deviants have been asking for advice for a long time.Appreciation and some advice for beginners2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start – my apologies if some points in this journal are not clear because of language, I am not a native English speaker.
I'm not giving these advice as a professional or an elite artist (I hope I was!), just sharing my learning experience and some personal understanding of conceptual design and arts. Please ignore or correct me if I got things wrong.
Ok. Some related information about myself – I studied computing at university, in my final year I found myself really lack of interests in programming or

Modern elevators have made “skyscrapers” possible—buildings with so many floors that reaching them only by stairway access would be a ridiculous and exhausting proposition. And so stairways have become hidden in blandly utilitarian “fire exit” stairwells. Even buildings now designed with no more than two or three floors save space with elevators rather than having a central stairway. And so one of the glories of our most beautiful architecture is rapidly disappearing, being preserved only in private mansion residences. It is a pity.
There is something magical in a stairway—this structure endlessly “in motion,

Coming across a deserted house, whether hidden by the distance of a rolling countryside or by the shadows of adjoining city ghetto dwellings, is like stumbling across an unnoticed, unburied corpse. It is obviously dead now, but once it was full of lives. Coming across a haunted house is different. Deserted or still occupied, it is a place where lives, unsatisfied, have refused to move on into a full death. The houses reflect their tenants. They are living dead structures, refusing to return to dust.
“What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow”

Science was doing such an admirable job for humanity until the guys and gals in lab coats committed an unspeakable act in 1988: The National Center for Atmospheric Research photographed two identical snowflakes. That last certain evidence of real life magic in the world finally fell, debunked. And now I can never again in good conscience pass along to a child that most amazing factoid that amazed me when I

I've been on DA for almost 2 years, I have enjoyed every minute of this website. Last year, while I was extremely depressed and in need of a friend, I've been backstabbed by people who I loved. I realized something from that time. I have a huge following here on this website. And I have thought of this goal for almost a year.
This was the goal and I want people on DA to read these words.
No matter the number of watchers, no matter your artistic skills. You are important. The only way for you to realize is to be positive. Don't follow what other people are doing, and I know people have said that over and over again but here is a thing. If you compare yourself to others and you want to beat them in watchers. You are NOT a real artist. Be inspired, but don't turn this website as a contest. This is not a game, this is real life. Your watchers are the most important thing

Mad Dogs and Englishmen
Joe Cocker died on December 22nd after a battle with lung cancer.
There are artists whose art you admire and enjoy. And then there are artists whose art fuses with your soul and becomes forever part of who you are. Joe’s singing was this latter sort of art for people in this singer's generation.
There’s a lot Joe achieved as a singer. He had his share of hits, awards, recorded film and TV theme tracks, but that doesn’t mean much when you’re dead. What matters is that your music moved people. That those people remember and have kept passing down the feeling they had when they first heard your voice

Poet of Lovers & Rebels, Poet of Dreamersby MARX77
As is the case with all artists, poets too are greatly influenced by the world around them and how they perceive it.
The splendor of the heavens above, the dynamics of the earth beneath their feet. The uncertainty of life, the inevitability of death. But more importantly, a poet's inspiration comes from what they carry within themselves; their memories, relationships, their dreams, joy and grief. Verses borne of turmoil and tragedy decades ago continue to resonate to this day and are as relevant now as they were back then. Truly poetry is an art form for the ages!

Should I Get That DSLR?Should I Get That DSLR?Should I Get That DSLR?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As a photographer, I see quite often, both in the photography forums and in real life, people asking about DSLR's, and which one they should get. The big question to this isn't how much your budget is, but what you use it for. This is a great time for budding photographers, what with used and starter DSLR's being now very affordable, but it may not always be necessary.
"I am not a photographer. I am not really interested in learning all the ins and outs of photography. I just want to take a good quality photograph."
In my opinion, if you are this person, you likely do not need a DSLR. The great thing about DSLR's are all the manual controls you have, the shutter speed, aperature, etc. These things are things that require you to learn about your camera, study into what each facet does, and practice using them. If you aren't really interested in photography, you proba
For you. For ever.I wish I wouldn't have met you. Then we could have another chance. And I would arrange everything the way you wanted. Your books ascendingly arranged based on how much you smiled when you read them. And your flowers arranged not by their colors but by their smell. And how you never praised the moon as much the stars because they had their own light ,For you. For ever.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
and they looked like scattered pieces of mirror in the sky reflecting all the happy hearts beating on earth.
And I loved how you couldn't sleep ,without the dim light falling on my face,
while you stared and I fell asleep first.
And you'd hold my hand every night only to promise me you would be there ,
through not just my dreams but through all my nightmares.
Pathetically yours forever.

Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer
