Thinking of Starting a New ProfileI'm not decided on this by any means...but I have been increasingly frustrated with my current deviantART profile for a few months now. It's not that I'm not grateful for all of the attention and love I have received...I just feel as if I have outgrown it.Thinking of Starting a New Profile2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've had this profile since I was 14, and a lot of my really, really old artwork is attached to it. I find my art growing and evolving into something more complex than it used to be...being attached to this "childhood" dA account seems like it is holding me back in a way. I almost feel obligated to create work reminiscent of the past, instead of delving into something new.
I don't want to make this seem like my style is going to take a complete left turn. This is not the case at all. In fact, I've evolved my work to a level I am moderately happy with...it's just not quite there yet (it probably never will be, that's one of the excitements about being an artist. Your art is always evolving).
observation and imaginationTL;DR: Learn by drawing from real life, so you can more convincingly, creatively and beautifully draw from your imagination (and/or from life).observation and imagination2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Beginner artists often obsess about being unable to draw well from imagination. If you try to improve your art skills only by drawing from imagination, it may take you in some very interesting (or possibly frustrating) directions. If you want to draw realistically from your imagination, you should probably start your journey with many many hours of drawing from real life (and to a lesser degree photos and other resources.)
Artists who are searching for advice, sometimes regard the suggestions "practice" and "draw from life" as too simple, too boring, too vague, or somehow insulting or dismissive. However, for more experienced artists who are giving this advice, it may simply be the clearest and most obvious path to improvement. More specific guidance may not be be possible when what you need to improve is "everything". If y

You do realize that it's not exactly cold in Jerusalem right? Even in a cave, after three days things would be starting to get... mushy.

Also, if you read into the symbolism, by giving someone a painted egg your kinda saying "hey, good luck making babies this year".

They look like tiny versions of dinosaur ancestors who have survived into our age, like sharks and crocodiles, but actually they are of a separate evolution and not related. They have scary devil–mask faces, many even sporting horns—but actually, most species are quite human–friendly and can make affectionate pets.
Their endless variations in skin coloring and tattoo–like designs are what draw the artists’ and photographers’ eyes. The chameleons even “change clothes” all day long, wanting to always be wearing the appropriate colors for the “room” they find themselves in.

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique
Annual Santa Giveaway! -Submit Wishlists!-Thanks Edit 12/22/13 Sooo...I sent out about 56 cards with goodies in total *dies a little* I am so so sorry if I was not able to send you something. I tried my best, but I had a shipping budget and I sorta went over that. Whoops. Anyway, the last of the US cards should be arriving before Christmas. Some of the international cards might not make it until after Christmas. If I was not able to send you something, I will still try and grant something on your wishlist, even if it is just points. I wasn't really able to do any big drawings this year. I had to choose between a lot of small gifts or a few big gifts.

Ok Pet Peeve...Ok Seriously xDOk Pet Peeve...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't usually complain or talk about these things as I am pretty low drama.... but I have a very protective personality, it cannot be helped.
If my friends are attacked and even someone I don't know I feel the need to protect them, So when I see someone insulting someone's work it annoys me and I have to stop myself from attacking people (which I actually just did - ok maybe I didn't stop myself and called them an asshole, but then I came here to rant about it)
But here's my real question I guess, where do people get off thinking they can just be assholes because they don't like someone's work?
It's usually under the guise of, "Well, if you don't expect a critique you shouldn't be posting your work..."
Say what? Why the fuck are you even on DA if you don't have the stomach to handle some shit out of your comfort zone to begin with? I pity the fool who tries that shit on me, I wish a bitch would.
I've seen some crazy shit since I've been on DA, stuff I have never even

PE: Decorating Your ProfileCommunity WeekPE: Decorating Your Profile3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Your profile page is the first thing people will see when they click on your name, so it's very important to leave a good impression! This article will provide some useful tips and tricks for both premium and non-premium members who want to convert their profile into their own, unique page. First off, some Do's and Don'ts of profile decoration:
Use dA's profile widgets-- there are lots of great options to chose from
Show off some art (that's what people are here for!)
Express your personality through colors, stamps, gifs, etc.
Add so many images that your profile takes forever to load
Use garish or headache-inducing colors
Make text difficult to read with dark backgrounds
While many widgets are restricted or locked for non-premium members, there are still a variety of great widgets that you can add to your profile, even without a membership.

There was once a time when art depicting the lands west of the Appalachian Mountains as pristine wilderness awaiting exploration was censured by church and state as distracting from more important matters of the common pieties of home life. But there have always been those who need visions of grander realms for the journeys they can only dream of experiencing, but that may one day be rest stops on their great–great–grandchildren’s celestial road maps.
