Site Update: Bug Fixes and FeedbackIn our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.Site Update: Bug Fixes and Feedback1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
In the coming months, you may notice that the weekly Change Log is shorter than usual. This is because we're hard at work on a variety of major projects, and our development teams are focusing their energy almost solely in these areas. Stay tuned, as we'll have more exciting information on those projects in the next few weeks!
We will still be addressing bug reports during this time, so if you encounter any bugs, please do file a Bug Report about it at the Help Desk.
From the bottom of my heart...I have always enjoyed any domestic-related work, let it be decorating my home, collecting antiques (items ranging from A-Z), spending time in my beautiful garden, cooking, baking and whatever else (People often call me Martha Jr. lol...) But those activities has always been with amateurish results.From the bottom of my heart...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After a few years here on dA, i have grown so much! I am able to grow as much as I have - It is because of YOU! All of your feedback, your constant support and comments, I really don't think it is possible without you guys!

FOOD IN FOCUS: A Taste Of Japan
Food is a universal language
One we all speak on a daily basis. We indulge in its savory, sweet, salty, sour or spicy flavors depending on our cravings of the day. Its tantalizing flavors draw us in and delight our taste buds. With each region of the globe creating its own unique cuisine, there are numerous delicious journeys you can take. So let’s embark on a culinary adventure as we explore delicious faire
FREE REQUESTS! OpenPlease read EVERYTHING carefully before commenting/noting me!!FREE REQUESTS! Open1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As I have just been accepted to college, commissions will be my main source of income. I would like to make some examples of commissions (of types I have not been commissioned for yet / new stuff) so I will temporarily be allowing requests. I'm posting this journal now while it's on my mind, but I won't be actually getting to the art after a while.
I'll show what I need first, then the rules, so you can see if there's anything you'd like to see your character drawn as.
REQUEST TYPES // SLOTS
1 50x50 pixel icon (can be animated) - OPEN
It will be quite like the one I am using on my profile now except a bit better since that one is old. I'd prefer a more colorful character if possible to show off what I can do with pixels/sprites. I can do simple animations.
1 Pixel sprite (max 300 x 300 pixels) - OPEN
Similar to above, but larger/full
.i laid in the flowers and.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i listened to them hum,
i think i loved your hands
the most, even when they
flayed me to the bone
and i don't think i'm
supposed to talk about -
the devil, he said i've
lived one hell of a life,
you see, just read my
name out backwards,
and god ain't nothing
but a dog, so don't you
even go wasting your time
(i left my conscience pining outside the door)
.and goddess,.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
this isn't something i can
sweat or starve out of me,
i'll have to write and it will
see i've often thought about
placing my head in the pestle
and mortar, i wonder if i could
grind out the hell inside, become
a red pulp on the worktop, and
even the oven keeps tutting at me,
it's so easy, just open the door
stick your hand in, feel his forked
tongue on your palm,
orange lover, you
and it's true
that the dead are never really
silent, they grunt and they groan
in their damp soil sheets,
toss and turn over
(fill the bath with water, and just drop me in it)
.he said there are a lot of things in life.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
that don't make sense,
i said i know,
like that time i laughed so hard at the wake
i had to stay out in the garden making small talk with the smokers
for the rest of it,
like the time i shut myself in the garage and went to sleep
in the backseat of your car,
and how i'm not at all religious but i sat in church that day with
my hands clasped and
how i kept the windows shut that sunday so what i prayed for
couldn't get in,
like the time i watched her throw your stuff out on the driveway,
and when she managed to smash those plates even with
her broken wrist, how most hearts start to sink when tempers rise,
and the time i wanted to cradle that dead pigeon i saw at the
train station, and you told me to answer the phone and i wouldn't
because i knew it was you,
and when the night comes calling i always let him in,
i'm never quite sure who he is, but he says
he's paid for it so now i better fucking
he says haven't you learnt by now

The Danger of Callout JournalsWe've all seen them. Journals written for the sole purpose of bringing attention to one person's actions, be they a thief or a dodgy breeder or just a dick. Nowadays you mainly see posts about certain websites stealing art and claiming characters as their own on masse or merchants selling prints of art that ain't theirs. But every now and then you get this one journal in your inbox telling you to avoid one person in the community because of reasons. While I think it's worth it to inform others of people who may or may not be 100% genuine in their actions I think a lot of people go about this the wrong way.The Danger of Callout Journals2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So let me make this as clear as I possibly can:
You can put a thousand disclaimers on that journal telling people not to harass the person you're calling out but people will ALWAYS harass said person.
So keep that in mind when you're calling someone out. You either need to go balls to the wall hard on it, making an enormous scene and disrupting a few people's
Be YourselfWe really don't understand anyone in this world, and we should probably stop trying so hard to. The whole judging a book by its cover quote is becoming more real life as the days go on. I was sitting in my philosophy class, which contains only 8 kids and a teacher as it is an honors class, and quietly doodling. This class is especially inspiring and interesting to me, as it involves critically thinking. I have also taken a liking to thinking "outside of the box", and this class more than encourages this. Due to this positive and relaxed atmosphere, I feel it an extra nice environment to "mindlessly" doodle. Today I happened to be thinking about a picture I saw on tumblr (mine is boomindreams.tumblr.com), it had a quote that read, "Do not allow the eyes to fool the mind." Upon seeing this, I knew I wanted to use it as inspiration for a picture. So, I took out my purple pen and went at it. I began drawing, and the girl sitting next to me looked over and said, "Brittany, that is kind of cBe Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Getting Your Story Written (Not Thought)So, you want to write a story. Great! But for some writers, this can take a lot of time; which definitely isn’t great if you’re on a schedule! I suffer from this same problem myself most of the times that I try to write, but I’ve figured out ways to get around the tricky subject of writer’s block.Getting Your Story Written (Not Thought)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Step 1: Shutting off your Inner Editor.
Everyone has one, right? That little voice which tells you to go back, which tells you that you’ve missed a full stop, which tells you that the story can wait if the punctuation or the point isn’t up to scratch.
You need to learn how to shut them up.
Whether that might be Zen meditation, awkward talks with yourself over coffee, whatever you need; just try to suppress that little voice that automatically checks over your work. Right now, they really are not what you need to focus on. Here are a couple of ideas on how to keep your inner editor quiet.
Sub-step 1: Run with some initial ideas.
Four new roleplaying rulesI'm sick of people opening notes and not answering or giving me one word answers! From now on I have three rules you must abide by!Four new roleplaying rules1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1) if you have to leave or get off of DA for a while please don't tell me. It makes me feel bad.
2) I hate one word replies! Please give me between 1 sentence to 2 paragraphs. It gives me things to work off of for the roleplay.
3) please please please. . . DONT OPEN A NOTE I SENT YOU AND THEN DONT REPLY. that is how I track who is sending me a note right then or if a roleplay is missing! I hate that. Stop doing that.
edit: 4) if we are not roleplay through the comment section don't DONT DON'T use these stupid things ********. They are annoying and we don't talk like that. So don't fucking use them. Understand. They piss me off.
Extra: if you open a note and don't reply with in three days I will resend. same goes for unopened notes!
.there is a body.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
bloodless and pale,
with dirty hands
trying to wash it all
off, because if she
cannot see it there's
a chance it won't
so she buried
the blood in the
mud with her baby
teeth, asked the
river to take it
away, felt her bones
heave a sigh as she
lay them all down
on the bank
(and no doubt he will say she was crazy, this bitch, with her tongue and her teeth and her mind)
