Hello dAI thought it was time to say hello again
To dream again
To roam again
What's your summer been like, or
On the other side of the world
I have written, pen dipped in soul
And slept, the sun on my skin
It's been wonderful
Now autumn calls and with it
And my computer
What They Like And What They Don'tSometimes I make something that I absolutely adore, but I know the moment I look at it when it's done that it's not going to get a lot of love from the world. And you know what? That's okay.
Because I just love it so damn much. And when you're that committed, that sure, that full of love, nothing other people say or think can even penetrate that. It's a shield and a wall and the surest protection from the cruelties of the world, because it comes from within. So, sometimes I decide not to share it at all; and sometimes I decided to share it regardless, just because I want to. And I feel a little bit like a rebel, because I'm breaking the mold of what other people want and like and expect, to publicly do something for myself.
And I'm mostly right about the world (in general) not falling over itself to appreciate this thing that I love so much. But sometimes another person will find it and will love it also, and t
Choose Your Own AdventureMost of the summer I've been swept up in adventure, and it was great. It's becoming autumn now, and I'm back home and back to "real life", and I am already feeling a part of me go to sleep. But I am not ready to be dulled and bored and to let time pass me by while I'm living one meaningless day after the other.
I don't know yet how I'm going to break the monotony of day-to-day life enough so I can breathe freely and stop my adventurous soul from petrifying, dying a slow death amidst long workdays and grocery shopping.
So I ask you, what do you do to stay awake?
What's your antidote to the seeping boredom that comes with routine?
How do you combat time passing you by?
Or are you (like me) still figuring it out?
I'd love to hear your thoughts -
My deviantART StoryBeginnings
I remember the first time I opened deviantArt, I was very confused. It was my wonderful friend simoendli's profile page; she was showing me the site and telling me it was fun and I should sign up too. I remember thinking that a "forum that was made up of profiles instead of threads was totally weird". At this time, I had a myspace page (that was kinda more like a personal website, since I used the then-popular hack to hide pretty much all the default boxes, and make my own instead). It was two years before I signed up for facebook. So to me, this was a totally foreign concept, and frankly: I didn't believe in it.
It's thanks to my friend that I walk away. She nudged me about it again two weeks later, and showed me enough cool stuff for me to (somewhat reluctantly) agree to sign up.
And from there, it was only a short ways to falling deeply, irrevocably in love with the site, it's art and it's community.
Happy New Year! + featuresIf you think about it, today is no different than any other day of the year. Sure, the calendar for the year 2013 ended, and when we write the date today it's a different year than it was yesterday. But our year might have just as well ended three weeks ago. Or six months ago. Or tomorrow. Nothing happened yesterday that was of any consequence. There was no cosmological event that switched the year. It's totally random.
And yet, there's something slightly magical about starting a new year. It's like starting a new diary, or going outside for the first time after a snowfall, when all you see outside is an untouched, glittering plain; and it will be your footsteps that make the first marks.
Happy New Year, and may it be the most wonderful yet!
Let's make a mark in this new, magical year with our art!
Features (made in 2013)
My name is Olivia.
I started photographing in 2003, while I was attending a one-year foundation class at art school. In 2004 I started school to be a multimedia designer and computer programmer. I graduated in 2008 and have been working as a computer programmer, multimedia designer and portrait and fashion photographer since.
Don't be a stranger, say hello!
I am nice, really. Well, most of the time anyway. See for yourself.

What good photography groups are there?I pretty much disappeared from dA a couple of years ago, just as the new "Group"-system was being introduced. As a result, now I'm totally lost in the jungle of it all. What good photography groups are there that you would recommend? I tried the group finder and just searching for keywords, but the results were kind of unsatisfying. Can anyone give me a pointer in the right direction?
Any input is greatly appreciated.
These are a few of my favourite thingsI recently came across this online app that makes me pretty happy: piccsy
Basically it's just a way to love and share images from all over the internet, and right now I enjoy the selection of images that is on display there a great deal. There are quite a few nudes (girls mainly - for some unexplained, cryptic reason ). But I haven't come across any tasteless pictures, most of them are either pretty aesthetic or funny. You should check it out too!

deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing.
I feel much the same way about deviantART.
I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo
My Opinion on DeviantArt EclipseWelp I'm hopping on the band-wagon I suppose, but not in a negative matter of speaking.
As a beta tester I got a notice that said I could test a new potential site layout. I was mildly interested and decided I would try it out when I had time, which was today. The past couple days I've seen so many status posts and journals threatening to leave because of how much people hate the Eclipse version of deviantArt, but I couldn't personally see what would make an update so bad people didn't want to be here anymore.
I finally got to test it out today, and I must say it's got a nice modern design and it seems like it's easier to access places like the forums and the watch area. Not only that you get direct notification when you have feedback, and you can check it once and it doesn't press on, and you can look back at it any time. My only concern was that "Oh, I can't see what the people I'm watching are posting!" but that's not the case! That's what
commissionTranslation: by Retro7
it's the first time (in 13 years XD) since I'm in deviantart that I'm doing this because of the number of people who send me suggestions and questions about whether I make commissions. I will try to be as clear as possible but in case of requesting a commission. by private message we can clarify things.
first I will detail my requirements and requirements to make a drawing:
- I only draw anime style, do not ask me for portraits of you or of another person (unless you want a drawing of you with that style), neither of ponies (simply why do not I get it right XD)
- I can do OCs, anime characters, video games, cartoons, humanized ponies, etc ... always with the style I use (however by message I will tell you if I can or can not perform your order)
- if your order is an oc must be very detailed as is the character: age, personality and their physical features (if they
Announce and Guidance about my new accountsGood day, dears! ( ^-^)ゝ
An important and maybe positive news I'll bring now.
Seeing bad rumors about DeviantArt's next update: Eclipse, my big friends suggested me to make an account on another site named ArtStation as many others doing recently.
And this suggestion of them encouraged me to bring my step one forward.
What I've decided is to create new two official accounts of mine out of DeviantArt.
And the places are: the one- ArtStation and the another- Instagram
