This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
I get a lot of questions from people about whether art is for them or not. Nobody feels like they are truly "talented". Did I feel like an artist from the beginning or did it take time to grow on me?
The mainstream advice would usually tell you to "dream big" or "be unrealistic". But I feel as artists that might hurt us more than it can help us. Especially as a beginner, your creative soul might not be strong enough, so the pain from not reaching your goals might make you give up on art altogether. So what's the solution?
Self awareness. Knowing which mindset to apply according to your situation. Although sometimes not giving a fukk can bring you a long way, other times it's realism that might help you get what you want. What do I mean by that?
Realizing what it takes to get where you want to go is the simple most important factor for success. And you might totally miss that, if your whole attitude is "I'm doing my own thing". So does that mean you should care what other people think about you? No. It means you should see what other people are doing and create a plan for yourself, so you know where you're going
I talk about this and a lot more in my new vlog. It started off as a question from a fan but it kinda inspired me to share my own struggles with art. You can find the link to the video below:
