There are people who desperately need some. ): And I happened to meet.. at least three today, right here on dA. One of them blocked me, even though I've never talked to them, I didn't even know they existed! xDD They read a comment I made on a commission of a horrible non-human OC kissing a Naruto canon character... And said OC is in the form of a wolf. ôO° My original comment was just a reply to a user who noted how well made the pic was, but also said they hoped the canon was not paired with the OC (most people, including myself, don't like bestiality). The commissioner started insulting me and told me that they want to get famous with their OC, but I was just too stupid to understand... Let me just copy and paste the conversation:
5 Tips for Smartphone PhotographyThey're getting more and more popular, so what is the best way of utilising the camera on your Smartphone to ensure you get the best results possible? This article shares some fantastic tips that offer a few guidelines for capturing good images with your phone. If you've got a top tip that you think is useful please share it in the comments as well - this list is by no means finished!More Like This
1) Clean Your Lens!
Unlike 'Proper' cameras, we're not overly precious about our smartphones. They go in and out of pockets and get left on all sorts of surfaces a lot of the time. Depending on the phone you have, you may be pressing your fingers into the lens whilst making a call without even realising it. So to get the best results, ensure your lens is cleaned regularly.
As with all photographs, composition is key. However you don't get much in the way of editing allowance after you've taken a photograph on your phone. You can chang

FEBRUARY - AQUARIUSMore Like This
February begins in the constellation of Aquarius and brings close to us the charm of this zodiacal sign.
So, let's see! :icontruesmiles:
Aquarius is the symbol of brotherhood and equality of people, knowledge of the world , extending perspectives . Aquarius seeks truth through knowledge as wide . He has strong principles and a strong sense of altruism , is an intellectual and an unconventional nature by definition , seeking a permanent connection with the world .Ruled by Uranus, the native Aquarius (20 January - 18 February) is sentimental, sensitive and emotional, is the type of free man, modern, not accept any constraint and is always one step ahead of everyone, with a spark differently than his peers. Ideogram of Aquarius zodiac sign, suggests waves of water flowing from human pitcher, the two lines of physics and metaphysics, which never touch each other.
Order! Order in the House!Style Shift to the PastMore Like This
I do not have OCD.
Let me repeat that.
I do not have OCD.
But my life has been going through too many chaotic twists and turns lately, and I need order in my life. There is no way to get order in my actual day-to-day routine. It's simply impossible. And do you know what that means? I need to abandon my half-hearted effort to reform myself and my style.
I'm going back to where I started, way back when.
Before I had a deviantART account, because they don't let little kids have deviantart accounts and I didn't want to lie about my age just to get on.
Way back when when I was a little kid, playing with MS paint. Back when I'd try to find the right patterns and numbers, back when I did geometric pixel art in basic colors. I used to spend hours and hours trying to find the patterns I could make.
Obviously, my skills have improved since then. I've gotten better at simulating shadows and making things not so obviously pixel-ey. Ten years of practice a

Pageviews Now Include All Profile SectionsMore Like This
As of today, we've updated the way Profile pageviews are counted for deviants and Groups.
Many years ago, we expanded the pageview counter to include not just the front page of your Profile, but also the Journals tab and the Prints tab (but not individual Journals or Prints). We mistakenly never expanded the count to other areas of the Profile.
This has been inconsistent for quite some time and we haven’t been transparent about what exactly this counter included.
Starting today, the pageview counter will begin including pageviews to all sections of your Profile, including:
Gallery and Gallery FoldersFavourites and CollectionsOther profile subpages: Activity, Badges, Daily Deviations, Critiques, Gallery Stats, Polls, Wishlist
We felt that it was important to fix this inconsistency to properly reflect traffic to all deviants’ Profiles. If an artist gets a lot of traffic to their Prints shop, this should be reflected in the same way i

Why equipment doesn't matter all that muchOh god, I wanted that Wacom Intuos tablet so badly.More Like This
I was 16 years old at that time. I had already seen so much amazing art on the internet for the last few years. Digital art, to be precise. And I wanted to be able to do that as well. I had a computer, I had installed Photoshop. The only thing that I didn't have was money. I was completely broke. Note: it's 2004 we're talking about, here. 10 years ago (yeah, I'm old) when computers still costed a fortune and one almost had to take an extra mortgage in order to be able to pay a tablet. Back then, the average Intuos tablet costed as much as the average computer; a whole damn lot of money.
I had already been drawing for years, back then.
I occasionally scanned my drawings. But as my scanner was utter crap (all scanners where, back then), my preferred medium was pencil (that never does well with scanners) and I wasn't that good with adjusting colors in Photoshop... most of my drawings ended in utter digital disappointment.

Sorry to bother you...Hello all,More Like This
I thought I'd take a moment today to write a journal which is probably long overdue. I believe there is a common misconception floating around that CVs are so busy, that when you send us DD Suggestions, or other messages, you are being a bother.
Quite regularly the DD Suggestions I receive start with something along the lines of "I am sorry to bother you..." or "I know you are busy but.."
I'd like to assure you all that no suggestions you send, or any other type of contact made with me (or any other CV for that matter) is something to feel sorry or bad about (unless you are legitimately harassing us or something).
I've often heard community members talk about how many notes CVs get daily (often this number appears to be near 100) and I feel the need to say that this is very far from the truth. On average I receive maybe 5 notes a day. On a slow day I may not get any at all and on a busy day I may get up to 10. While I can not speak

How it Works
projecteducate started with purely CV run weeks. Those were weeks focusing on a specific art form brought to you by your lovely Community Volunteers. As well as these epic seven days of awesome, we've now introduced two more themes which run on a bi-monthly basis. Those are Community Weeks, which include articles from members of the dA community - and Artist Toolbox Weeks which include a mixture of articles focusing purely on the 'tools' of the trade. If you're interested in either please note projecteducate!

Shoulder Recovery + 7 Years of DeviantArt Goodnessso i've been trying to get my shoulder fixed . yep i've got a shoulder bursisitis . whats that you ask ?More Like This
Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa. Bursae are small fluid-filled sacs located between two adjoining structures, usually muscles, tendons and bones.
Bursae reduce friction and assist movement of the tendon over the bony surface. Bursitis does not cause joint deformity, but can cause significant pain and restrict movement.
Bursae are located outside the joint itself. Since both tendons and bursae are located near joints, inflammation in these soft tissues may be mistaken for arthritis. However, arthritis involves inflammation within joints, whereas bursitis involves inflammation outside the joint.
Symptoms of bursitis
The symptoms of bursitis may include: Localised pain Swelling A warm feeling in or around the affected area Increased pain at night Pain worsened by movement Stiffness Reddening of the skin.

Whenever you are part of something bigger bugs and glitches will always appear - for various reasons.
In such cases it is always good to be up to date. Even if a bug or glitch doesn't affect you now, it might could happen in the future. Or in case you experience it already you are aware that someone will take care of it then.
To get the latest dA updates go to the Help & FAQ page.
You will find a link at the general footer or at the menu (when you hover over the little arrow icon next to the dA logo).
