When Art becomes Pressure...I only learned about it yesterday that a young artist just recently committed suicide over what seemed to be about her art. I don't know all the details, nor did I know her in person, but what her boyfriend wrote on her Facebook page prompted me to write about the issue. I can't say, if her art was the main reason for her to come to the conclusion to end her own life, but it seemed to be one of the things she thought about a lot. Out of consideration I am not going to tell names, or how old she was, because it doesn't matter. A life was lost.When Art becomes Pressure...11 months ago in Personal More Like This
She loved to draw and constantly did strive to improve, which we all can relate to. She seemed eager to participate in conventions, having her own stall, and to participate in the online art community, and that's where I want to add a few things.
Just to be clear, I am not saying the following was the exact reason for her decision, but rather a piece, which could have come into play. Many little things are accumulating before the limit is
Wanna see the inside of my new house?At least, the important kpop related part?Wanna see the inside of my new house?7 months ago in Personal Journal More Like This
If you follow me on instagram or tumblr, you've already seen these!
So, this is my living room, basically. I have a display case which is now dedicated to kpop (see the second picture for more images of my collection). And then there's the FanArt which is above my computer desk (my pieces are on the left while I have of manapia's pieces that I purchased on the right). The last image is of my dining room wall which has my exo posters. I still have to frame my overdose poster and put it up. And then there's the Celebrity Kai spread which I'm having framed as well).
I'm in the process of collecting more fanart... I want a kpop gallery!!!!

Pageviews, Watchers, and Popularity on dA I know this horse has been beat to death (and by beat to death, I mean guides have been made on the subject) but I feel the need to insert some words of compassion rather than to simply say “you shouldn’t care about becoming popular here, it doesn’t matter” or “follow these steps and you’ll be dA elite overnight!” The fact of the matter is we all long to be loved and liked in just about everything we do. We all want acceptance and validation from our peers. And when that acceptance and validation is nowhere to be found, the feeling is really not great at all. We all know that feel bro.Pageviews, Watchers, and Popularity on dA11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I tend to believe what most people longing for popularity on dA are really after validation and friendship. RockstarVanity beautifully wrote about the subject of popularity on dA (or rather the desire for it) in her essay “Popularity…A Refreshing View” check it out here:

Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico
From 500 to 20.000 watchers...... in just one year.From 500 to 20.000 watchers...1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was a cold day in February. I can still remember that day.
It wasn't that busy at my job. Just another day of mostly waiting for feedback. So I took the liberty to surf around the internet for a bit. Like every day before, I checked DeviantArt. I had posted some art some while ago. I submitted it to some groups, but didn't quite get the response that I hoped for. Let alone; the feedback. It's hard to get feedback on your art. Nowadays most people just fave and run, or tell you that your work is awesome (which is sweet, of course) without any further explanation. Most of the art forums that I used to reside on, where either dead, or I'd outgrown the user-base so much that I was at the point that there weren't any more talented users that could give me feedback anymore. If I had to wrap it up in just one word: Frustrating. That's what is was.
Of course I had my idols on DeviantArt. Famous people like yuumei en sakimichan whose watchers hit those astronom
