Script for deviantART that gives 'extra badge'This is an old Stylish script for deviantART that probably many people already knows:Script for deviantART that gives 'extra badge'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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:
If you have problems with Stylish this helps:
Remember to read the instructions (deviation descriptions) carefully! If you have any questions about this script please rea

A Must Read!Guys, i just want to share these journals with you (created by: Suzanne-Helmigh) whether you're a beginner, a student, or a professional artist, these are good articles, and covered a lot of good points, not only for becoming a good artist but things to be aware about as an artist. If you have a moment, have a look! I've shared one about the myth of concept art on my art blog, but i didn't want to leave out the rest of it. So instead i've decided to share these on here, since i have more watchers here than on my art blog. I hope it will help you in some way.

Folk and Fairy TalesI saw three ads today for Disney's 'Maleficent,' and it got me reminiscing about all the folk/fairytales I read through high school, and trying to figure out what in the hell a dude with owl eyes, lustful monks, and all sorts of generally stupid, greedy, or horny people were supposed to be teaching me about life. I mean...don't sew? Invite evil fairies to your birthday? Don't let a stranger impregnate you while you're comatose?

Fortunately, one of the first things I learned in my Ancient Myth class was that, regardless of Levi-Strauss' memetics, sometimes a story is just a story. And stories are meant to be entertaining.

Don't forget to look backMany people say that looking back is a bad thing to do, because it makes you dwell on the past and is getting you nowhere.Don't forget to look back10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I beg to differ! Because I think it doesn't hurt to look back on what you already achieved, every once in a while.
In contrary; it can be a great motivation.
I came to DeviantArt, almost 7 years ago, with close to no expectations.
To provide you a bit of a background; As a kid, I used to show my drawings to all the people around me (to the level of sheer annoyance). And in the early years of the internet, I posted my writings and drawings on several Dutch forums, where I got quite the feedback on it. But as social media gradually took over the internet, and the small forums I used to reside on died a slow death, I realized the stage of getting feedback there would soon be over for me.
DeviantArt was in that sense the next place to move to. A community that wasn't killed by the influence of social media. But it was a hard place to move to.

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
Pride?I was just thinking about what to draw for Transgender Day of Remembrance (open to suggestions, guys!) and I thought, why isn't there a trans pride day/week? All we have is a day to remember those we lost because of the awful things that can happen to trans people. That is hardly instilling hope for us, we should have a day where we show our pride, as much as our solidarity, where we can show the world that it's not all bad. There are pride days, weeks and months for many groups, but sinking into hiding and invisibility are the already overlooked trans community, and I don't think that is right!Pride?1 year ago in Personal More Like This

While the majority of the people reacted very positively towards the tips & tricks I shared, there were also some very hostile reactions that ideas like that would encourage you to be something you're not.
I'd like to elaborate on that.
First of all, these tips are basically science.
I didn't just randomly think them up. Most of the points are things that have been proven through marketing- and usability research. This whole marketing thing, however, is a field many artists are for some reason unfamiliar with, so people don't take it into account when wondering why they don't get the exposure they think they deserve. They often undeserving think it's their art that sucks, and that's a shame.
The reason I post this stuff, is mainly because I want people to know.

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.
