My deviantART StoryI've been a deviant from year 2006. I switched account in around 2011 because I didn't want to pay for a username change, although I feel I should've. A lot of the people that followed me, didn't follow to my new account. But I suppose that should tell me something, right?More Like This
Regardless, I've made friends here!
And I get to view my friends' art, which is amazing. Here's a few favorites.

Second, please consider making a shark-raffe for my silly little contest/bit of fun! There's a thumbnail below, but the gist is that I'd love to see you create a shark wearing a giraffe costume. You have until December 1st.
And now, welcome to This Week, a feature series I post (almost) every Friday, showcasing a handful of the art that comes through my message centre. These pieces are chosen at semi-random based on several different factors, but everything chosen for TW is something I consider fav-worthy.
Feature! ^.^More Like This
Have a great day...and I hope you enjoy this feature!

Two days ago I took in a very skinny and very young mother dog. Your dog. You know the one you thought was a cute puppy last year. The one who temporarily had a place in your home. I don't know what you called her or whether she even had a name at all but we now call her Feather after the Led Zeppelin Song "All of my love". You don't know me and I don't know you and I doubt we'll ever meet but when I first heard about Feather, her story broke my heart. The more I learned about her the more my heart broke. I feel the need to write this letter even though you will never read it just to express my current emotions.
I love this dog. I can't even explain how much she means to me. I didn't even think it was possible to feel this way about another dog. Thinking about her ever hurting makes me cry. The moment I first met her I knew she was special. She's emaciated, she had given everything she had to care for her puppies. Did you know the first meal I gave her she didn't eat? She

I think what justifies being able to call yourself a photographer is the ability to take a good photo.
Anyone can take a photo, but not everyone can take a good photo.
Almost everyone owns a camera, I'm sure the majority of you even have one on your cell phone. And what does it take to use the camera and take a photo? Simply the ability to click the shutter button. Everyone's got sliding filaments capable of creating a muscle contraction allowing you to apply force onto a shutter button to click it and effectively take a photo. Anyone can take a photo. Does the ability to click a button make you an artist? No.
As I mentioned before, I think what justifies being able to call yourself a photographer is the ability to take a good photo. It's the ability to know the best angle, composition, lighting, temperature, depth of fie
