Untitled is just a synonym for lazy.Well, the color poem form I introduced to dA was a rousing success, but interest of late seems to have died down. So I'm back with a new form for you all, something exciting and new, something different, something that I will probably make into a contest once I get some points in the bank. You ready?Untitled is just a synonym for lazy.2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There's a group now - feel free to head over to TheTitlePage! We're still in set-up mode, so excuse the plainness for now.
Found Poetry Project - Titles as Art
One of my favorite things about the creative process is coming up with a good title. The title can make or break a piece; it can give context not provided in the piece itself, set a tone or mood, or just give that little extra something you can't put a name on.
You know I'm right. How many times have you stumbled into an ordinary piece with a beautifully creative title? And it's not something

Inspiration: Art websitesMany people asked me about which sites I use (or used) to learn and keep myself updated about art. So I decided to make a list with art websites that offer tutorials, advice, or other content that inspired me. Of course there are many other individual artists that inspire me greatly, but I've tried to keep this list to the ones that provide the community of advice and tutorials (otherwise I could go on forever).Inspiration: Art websites7 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Comments and Commenting We all know that getting the exposure you want for your work is a tough endeavour here on dA. Despite the wonders of the site, the simple fact of the matter is that comments are hard to come by these days.Comments and Commenting1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
There may be many reasons for this - lack of time on the part of many browsers, lack of interest, or simply: not knowing what to say. We've all been there at one point (some of us more than others), and it presented the question - "what is it that writers want out of a comment?"
The only way to find the answer to this question was to set up a poll - which received an amazing response from the lit community, and with your help, this editorial will highlight some points that will aid in leaving some insightful and appreciated comments.
First and foremost - Read.

Is there a badge that you have always dreamed of but you can never get? Has someone designed a new badge that you would like to use (like a Pink Glitter Llama)?
There is one way to get that badge - but it is only visible at your own page and other deviantART users don't see it:
ginkgografix made in 2010 a script for Stylish that adds extra 'badge' to your collection. Stylish is a browser add-on for Firefox and Chrome.
If you have Stylish installed to your browser then read these instructions and add a new Stylish script:

I do not want to be watched by people who have a different opinions than mine OR simply prefer to be neutral about something, EVEN if you have no idea what you need to have an opinion on or didn't hear the whole story, you cannot be indifferent to the situation. There is only two sides to an issue, a good and a bad one. If you don't pick one or don't support mine, you are disgusting! So please unwatch me, NO exceptions!

November something something.
I've got to come up with a better system for telling what day it is. Maybe I could scrawl numbers on the back of my shoe? Nah, that sounds like something silly that Pilot would do.
I'm currently carrying a calendar that says 2012 on it, but I am pretty sure that these days aren't correct anyway to our year and Captain keeps scribbling things in the margins whenever I get distracted enough for the calendar to be snatched out of my hands. I found the calendar more or less intact and it's kinda impressive that it lasted from way back in 2012. It must have held some sort of personal importance to it's owner to seal it away in a plastic container with words "the Mayans were wrong, trust no-one!"
I've been trying to keep track of how old I am, but I keep forgetting to check off every day in the calendar or maybe captain is messing off with me by erasing my checkmarks.
Something tells me I shouldn't be telling Captain about my birthday anyway. I would

This contest is going to be a bit different than our other ones, since there will three different themes all wrapped into one. Now before you get confused let me explain to you what the themes are and what we are looking for.
1. Easter : If you pick this theme we are looking for Easter themed pictures. You could be egg hunting, egg painting, you could dress up as a bunny! As long as you keep the main theme of your picture Easter themed we don't really care what you do.
2. Garden : Since the sun is starting to shine I know more and more people are starting to do work outside, so for this theme you may show yourself planting flowers, working out in a garden, really anything having to do with outside and gardening of some kind. Please if

The DA point system is a horrible, irritating scam that pisses me off to no end.
Let’s think about it this way.
Sure, you can go to the store and buy, with real money, a copy of monopoly. Within that game comes a whole bunch of fake money… and, because that money is fake, there are ridiculously high amounts of it at an inflated price. It really LOOKS like a lot of money, and you can use it to buy things in monopoly! Which is cool and fun! But if you take it anywhere outside of monopoly you’re screwed. Who kept your real money that you paid for this? The company who produced the game
