Kay (aka damphyr) is DeviantArt’s go-to expert on everything “Pokémon.” She also occupies the adventurous position of being one of DeviantArt's main enforcers of standards and practices. We thank her for being a guardian of artistic erotica and especially, for being able to answer every question we get asked about Pokémon and just about anything else for that matter. Supreme Keeper of all pop culture knowledge, Kay must be protected in case of global disaster.

What if plants were intelligent, exploring and analyzing the world with a sophisticated system of senses?
Over at Reality Sandwich, a long essay outlines a growing body of research about the intelligence of plants.
Increasing numbers of researchers, in a multiplicity of fields, are beginning to acknowledge that intelligence is an inevitable aspect of all self-organized systems—that sophisticated neura

orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe
that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

The Green Fairy Takes Flight Again
It was banned in America in 1915, but distillation and sale resumed in USA and Europe in the 1990s. It’s a spirit produced from the flowers and leaves of the wormwood plant. Anise, fennel and other “medicinal herbs” are blended in according to secret formulas of different distillers. Who drank absinthe? Hemingway, Baudelaire, Verlaine, Rimbaud, Toulouse–Lautrec, Van Gogh, Modigliani, Picasso, Oscar Wilde and occultist Aleister Crowley. Why were writers, poets and painters so ardent for this drink? Its secret is trace amounts of terpene thujone, reputed to induce clarity of

Commissioning in deviantARTCommunity WeekMore Like This
In deviantART, a person joins the website in hopes of becoming known and appreciated for your talents as an artist. After some time, you'll also learn you can earn something by selling your art. By selling you art, I mean selling your labor into creating a piece for a person to observe. The other selling is making a profit off of prints.
Now... why would one want to go about selling your art (as in labor)? To earn some money, a significant whatnot that allows you to buy other people's art. If you're going the PayPal route, this could mean some cold, hard cash!
How to Commission
Hate to say, selling your art require three key pieces: audience, skill and price. The difference between a successful seller and one that sells because they are desperate lies in those three points.
Of course, this is my take. Note that I'm not teaching you how to sell commissions. I'm showing you what things to consider when sell
Don't fix what ain't brokenI was checking one of DA's recent updates and came across a very revolutionary question from a fellow deviant:More Like This
And you know what? Yeah! Deviantart: why do you keep fixing what isn't broken?
I remember when I joined the community almost a decade ago and everything was juuuust right. People were lovely, there was art, there was people and we had just exactly what we needed. But NO DA! You weren't happy with that so you had to keep adding things nobody asked for! Whyyyyy??
For example, we had our lovely and uniform profiles, all of them were exactly the same because we just weren't able to customize them. We coudn't decide what we wanted to show in our profiles like we do now. If you wanted to add things like a gallery folder, or show more than your latest journal entry, or a custom widget, etc. you couldn't! because such things just didn't exist.

10 ways to become a better artistDear, deviantart fellow artistsMore Like This
How to become better at art? How to gain necessary skill and how to stay motivated and inspired?
There are no right, or wrong answers to these questions, as we all are different and we have our own creative journeys - but here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Make art with your heart
Make the art that you enjoy to create. Make what resonates with you, put your heart in it (not literally) and it will show through your artworks.
2. Be consistent
Commit to yourself. Do something daily, even if it's just a sketch. Perhaps, do a study every morning or make speedpaintings. You may not see the progress at first, but you shouldn't get discouraged by that. Not every single one of your artworks has to be a masterpiece and it's totally okay to have a bad drawing every once
Why advertising ain't evilOne of the things I mentioned in my journal about social interaction was that you should only watch a person on DeviantArt when you were genuinely interested. While that states the obvious, the statement sort of backlashed on me, and many people called me a hypocrite for saying the above thing, because I've been advertising my profile at dAhub and apparently that's one of those things you shouldn't do.More Like This
However, I wouldn't be me if I didn't think of this as bullshit.
I've been calling this whole "marketing is evil" statement on DA utter nonsense before, and I will do it again. Because it actually is. It makes completely no sense to be on a website with so many artists that want to sell their art/commissions/adoptables for a reasonable price. Yet when anyone doe
