Yesterday was also weirdly full of critiques, which brings me to this FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions)/FCC(Frequently Commented Comments ) journal. I'm just going to jump in to it. These aren't in any particular order.
Q: What program(s)/software do you use?
A:Most of my line art, coloring and shading is done with a mouse, and I do my line work and SOME backgrounds (mainly water, rocks and clouds) in Paint Tool SAI. Everything else is done with Photoshop Elements 6. I do occasionally use my wacom bamboo tablet for lines, coloring and backgrounds.

Your feelings about InternetAs I noticed huge interest in discussing about "feelings about internet" when I posted a photograph and added very teeny-tiny personal comment under this how I feel kind of weird with whole internet world thing, especially since when network societies existed...More Like This
In general, I'm not really internet-y person. I've been raised 100% real life based and I've joined to the internet quite late, at 16-17 years old age because I wasn't aware of anything like FB or DA existed. But I've observed certain things.... well, I have a huge observation about whole internet thing, why all of it is happening and it's negative side effect. It's not bad but there is something what I'm afraid.
However, I wont babble about my views, observations and research and as well my feeling about it. Firstly! I would like to hear from YOU, what do you feel about it. I like listening people. I would learn tons based from other people's views :3
In general, that would be interesting... let's have a friendly discussion! L

It's that time again.
For this contest, you are being offered a "stock bank" to select your stocks from. There is no particular theme; just wing it!
The majority (but not 100%!) of your manipulation must contain stocks from the given choices. You may find some textures or other little odds and ends to use. Also, you do not need to use a piece from each category listed below (but you can use more than one from the same category if you'd like). All stock/textures you are using outside of the bank must be legit.
Make sure you read each stock artists' rules! This is a must. Also, always give proper credit and notify of usage. Please remember to do this, or the entry will not be accepted.
There will be 3 different categories: beginner, intermediate, and advanced (when submitting your entry or entries via note,

I am sure a lot of you have seen these gallery makeover journals floating around already, but here is a definitive list of all the journals so far. Please note that not all galleries are on this list, more may be added later. Also some of these links may be updated in future, and we'll be sure to update the link here as neccessary.

Photomanip: Challenges and possible solutionsHi everyone,More Like This
I am still on hiatus because my 18-hour exam is just a week and a half away. However, I had a few moments, so I wanted to tell you about the results of the photomanipulation community meeting we had the other week.
First, let me say that I am extremely grateful to those of you who came. Everyone had a positive, constructive attitude, and I really think we were able to make good segue into a community that will acknowledge everyone's talents.
Here are some themes that came up and the solutions we decided to create for them.
Problem: People are concerned about what stock is and is not allowed to be used. They are also concerned about being able to copyright their own work and keep people from stealing or copying them.
Solution: I am not sure there is a solution for this one that will be satisfactory to all people, as this is kind-of a risk you take when you post your work online-- especially if you
New Stock Rules - Creative CommonsHelloMore Like This
I have been making changes to my deviantART account lately, hopefully for the better Most notably, I have decided to simplify my Stock Rules under a Creative Commons License - Attribution 3.0 Unported. And I want to thank you for the precious time you took to provide me with feedback on my latest poll for example to determine whether or not you would support my move towards a Creative Commons license.
It was a big decision for me to make and I didn't want to make it alone. Now that I met your stamp of approval, I am happy to announce that my stock can used for much greater commercial usage as long as you are willing to credit and link back. Something I find that most responsible deviants do already within a close knit community of caring artists
Declined artIn my groups I often have to deal with people who's art was declined who are upset about that.More Like This
If I decline something based on the quality people get upset because they think all art should be accepted. Like they have the right to tell me what to accept into my group.
If I decline something because I feel that the theme doesn't fit the group people get upset about that too. Because they think that I interpreted their artwork wrong and that their own interpretation is the correct one. Like everyone views art in the same way. Different people see different things in art. If I don't see "it", whatever it is needed for the artwork to fit into my group, then it won't go into my group.
I've been through this so many times with different people and it annoys me. Yes, there are groups which accepts every single artwork no matter the quality or theme. Some of my groups doesn't do that though so people have to deal with it or submit their art to another group. Or better yet, start

The Realities of a Freelance Digital Artist (SurrealPSD)
In The Moment...Hello all! I'm finally back in acton here on DeviantART again after a rather long/extended leave (or partial leave, depending on which way you look at it). I want to thank everyone who helped and supported me throughout this tough time lately. I am eternally grateful for all of you.More Like This
Without getting into WAY too much detail, I need to express to everyone a huge lesson that I've learned throughout this past few weeks. I recently went through an experience that had me on the edge. A close friend of mine was in a critical health condition that made his family and friends start preparing for the worst case scenario. Each day things were seemingly getting worse and worse. He finally went into a coma. I began reminiscing about our past friendship. Now we didn't exactly have a "perfect friendship", I don't believe anyone truly does have a "perfect" anything. But in the past few years it was....well, bad. And I mean BAD. Fights, arguments, betrayals, and nearly everything that could go w

Photomanip: Working with TexturesWelcome!More Like This
Textures are a critical part of so many photomanipulations, but they're not as easy to use as they appear. Below are some great examples of photomanipulations that, in my opinion, demonstrate excellent use of textures:
The goal of this article . . .

How and Why to Credit Your Stock Providers: UpdateHiya Darlings,More Like This
Today I am going to tackle a subject that all photo manipulation artists should pay attention to. (Yes, this means you!) It is my hope that this article will save you the headache and trouble of getting a submission declined, having to delete your work, or worse; be sued by someone because of it.
Why Properly Crediting Stock Is Important
All artists know that the secret to a great manip is finding stock that is just right for the theme you are trying to convey. On there are literally thousands of fantastic high quality images that are absolutely free. Some of these images are even created by and featuring professional models and photographers. You could pay a lot of money for the rights to use the type of stock resources in your art that are found here free of charge. This is part of why is unique and an amazing place for artists to frequent.
You'll find that a lot of art groups, including this group and our affiliate

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

J. Paul Getty - The Liberation of Masterpieces as Open Content
The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resources within the arts themselves, for study, for sheer per

This is for the Average ArtistIt is painful at times,More Like This
Seeing those born with skill and talent.
They paint such beautiful things, using the barest of material.
Entire worlds are spun at their fingertips, all from a dot of paint.
I think sometimes, of how nice it must be,
To be able to capture such beauty, within the borders of a page.
To spin a tale from but the smallest of phrases,
To create a fantastic adventure from a mundane experience.
It is painful indeed at times. When I am seated in this room,
Surrounded by the dull hum of failure and regret,
I ask myself, with eyes burning in the mirror,
Am I finally ready to give it all up?
'No!' I say
I will not let it end this way!
Not without a fight, not until I know that I am utterly broken.
The good lord may have blessed you with talent my friend,
He has given you everything that I could have ever desired...
But there is one thing that I have earned;
One little gift that remains my own.
You would not know of it,
Since you have never felt it,
Does popularity on DA matter to you?I see countless people asking on the forums, as well as the obvious signs like pageview obsessing, shameless/shameful self promotion, begging for watchers...that sorta thing.More Like This
I'm not going to lie: it matters to me too. Blah blah pageviews don't matter, not a measure of your art, etc. But that's not exactly true, is it? People are driven by their desire for approval and recognition. And even though it isn't a measure of skill or quality, it does matter to people. Say what you want, but people never complain about receiving compliments/watches/faves. It's a good thing.
What's not a good thing is desperation or feeling shame based on how little recognition you get. A lot of it is luck based, some is talent, and some is just whatever's popular at the moment. I can complain all night long about how MLP/anime/fanart receives more faves than my original art, but that doesn't change anything. Art is subjective, and everyone
The Concept of TimeI have never understood the concept of time.More Like This
When I was young, I was told that time is a past – what you have already experienced, a present – what you are experiencing at the moment, and a future – what you will experience.
I was told that the future is infinite, the past is enormous, and the present is a tiny little moment which was once the future now is the present, and then is the past and you have just wasted a whole second of your life.
It is funny that they tell us to use every moment of the present, quickly, before it becomes a past, and it is so hard to live in the present when it is just a tiny little moment that now is gone.
But yet this concept was quite simple to me, until I started to watch sci-fi shows about time travel, and it started to get all… wibbly wobbly timey wimey… Stuff.
I was told that if you go faster than the speed of light, time goes slower so you could end up in the past. Which is surrealist, you can't live in the past. You can go back to what relat
Socially AwkwardI like the internet, but I acknowledge that it's not perfect. The ability for everyone to be the invisible man allows for a lot of injustice, bullying, harassment, and stalking to take place. This is slowly starting to change, however, thanks to every website gradually forcing people to link to their facebook (or other social media equivalent) accounts. No one wants to lose their personal social outlets as a result of the stuff they were doing elsewhere on the web, if you know what I mean. But... with all good things there are some bad things.More Like This
I don't know if it's just me, but I'm getting really creeped out how by how much everything is getting connected these days. Nearly every website asks me to post about stuff on facebook or twitter or reddit or whatever. Many websites don't even have personal accounts anymore and just have you link your social media accounts instead. And all of them want to update everyone on your every move 24/7.
And that's what's bothering me. I don't want every

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recently worked on “Wreck It Ralph,” and has become active in the story department, where he dreams up fresh narratives and new characters with fellow Story Artists and Disney directors.
But more and more, he is being recognized for his own style and own creations

I see fans arguing which pairing is the better one

Guys, I absolutely hate this.
You can't argue about taste and if you don't like a pairing,
then just look away.
The silliest thing you can do is clicking on a picture/video/whatever which obviously contains two persons you don't like to see together and then mocking about it in the comments.
And never ever even try to convince someone, that "yours" is the better one. Just leave if it disturbs you, goddamnit.

when writers cryAwake on strong, black coffee drinksMore Like This
Words on paper, liquid ink
Dreams of pen tips, future lies
Tragic stories, quotes of the wise
Nights have carved their dark, deep valleys
In the hollows of my eyes
For you see, my friend, when writers cry
There are no tears, their cheeks are dry
But ink dipped fingers, worn out wrists
Chewed up nails and bloody fists
You see, it's strange when writers cry
Their hearts are true, their words don’t lie
They mourn in silence for a few days
Of paper cuts and tear-less haze
Of coffee mugs and smoky paper
Liquid spills, and water vapor
Sorry dreams and wasted hours
Putrid smells and dying flowers
(Torn to pieces from inside
Tears are hidden by our pride)

I don’t like you. I’ve never liked you. Unfortunately, I need you. I need you to tell my story. I need you to create my world. I need you to set me free.
I need your fingers typing on those keys, I need your mind riddling out the problems, and I need you to plough onward and upward no matter how hard it gets. Sweat, blood, and tears, I don’t care. You’ve got to fight this war, battle at a time, and win it. So I can be more.
It’s a slim hope, but it is the only one I have. In your head I am bound to mortality, frailty, and the limit of your meagre imagination. Out there – out there – I am subject to no one person. Out there I am bound to only black on white. Words on a page. Words that can lay seeds within a million minds. Out there I am a story capable of growing, moving, and stealing the dreams of anyone who learns of me…

Greetings from Seattle!Hello, deviantART! It's been about a month since I last posted a journal. Things in Seattle are going pretty well. Unfortunately, I've had very little time to do any art or photography, which is wearing down my soul. I've been using Instagram pretty regularly, though. I've been doing a little bit of writing, but mainly for school, so I have nothing to show. I do have a bunch of older writings that I can post to dA, but I'm a little apprehensive about doing so because I would like to put them in a book soon. I don't want to spoil the book plans by posting things online!More Like This

I'm moving...It appears that I am moving to Virginia for at least the next six months. I'm going for a working student position with an equestrian. This means that I will get a lot of riding done, a lot of experience accomplished, and I'll be well on my way for my equestrian career. However, this also means that I'm going somewhere where I know little to no one (except my favorite band, who would be an hour away), where there is practically no vegan food, and I don't know what I will be doing for money just yet. Housing is included in my deal and the position could lead to paid work, but it doesn't start that way.

You can suggest deviations of your own too, if it's no more than 1 or 2, and that it's not all you suggest. Suggest as many deviations and groups as you like. (And you're still welcome to write a feature journal of your own if you want to show us even more awesome artwork.
