So... Anyone knows of a Devil May Cry group / club that accepts only original series fan art and none of the stuff for that steaming pile of turd that Capcom/NT is trying to sell as new DMC game? I can't use regular search anymore without Bob popping up in the results. (Well, I could search for Nero, but. You know. Not giving up Dante yet.)
I almost failed to post this entry btw. It took me half a minute to figure out where "Submit journal" action went. Meanwhile, I noticed that last few of my journal entries dealt with varying degrees of fail somewhere. Don't I ever post good news? I almost feel bad for badmouthing deviantART regarding broken quick thumbs in Opera. I mean, it can hardly be considered in the same league as the insanely epic fail of gargantuan proportions aka DmC reboot. (And no, it's not about Dante's hair color.)
As for my absence from deviantART... I'm largely absent from Internet in general. Still working on my MA thesis. Not that there is much commotion here... Looks like most persons on my dA friends list (not acquaintances) don't post much either. Anyway, I would need at least vacations and at most a health check before I come back. It's been more than a month since I last slept for more than 5-6 hours per day and ate more than one real meal. It's kinda funny that I never feel hungry anymore and I'm full after one toast sandwich. Plus I have been living pretty much solely off DMC rage during last week.
Either way, my thesis is the most important thing right now. I'm deeply sorry for vanishing from the face of the Earth, but it couldn't be helped. Either I fail at time management, or I simply have too much to do. I still plan on coming back though, at least!
Master's Thesis + DMC update
Real life Hmm... I'm really bad at writing dA journals, ain't I? I kinda forgot (*facepalm*) to let you all know that I graduated. :XD: 3 weeks ago. Uhm. I have Master's degree in Computer Science, Web Technologies. :D So now I'm not a student anymore and I have no idea what to do next :ohnoes: I was planning an optical surgery, but during medical examination this weekend it turned out that it's going to be complicated :/ I don't really want to meddle when success ratio is not as high as it should be... So maybe I'll try less invasive methods for now. Obviously I don't have a job :P Gotta find something soon, now that I sort of know that
The New Entry in dA Epic Fail Chronicle
Dear dA, :thumb173090345: I greatly appreciate the fact that you made it even harder to read deviation title and author's notes and check deviation category. This it totally following your initial idea of reducing the importance of these elements, via moving them under the actual deviation (and collapsing a/n), so that we viewers have no idea what the artwork is called unless we take the effort to scroll down and check ourselves. Of course, who cares about what author has to say? I completely understand that you don't want us to read their commentary, which is likely to contain their thoughts and insights on creation processes and key clues
I was tagged by CearaFinn (https://www.deviantart.com/cearafinn) ;) The tag is to post a journal revealing 10 things about myself that you probably didn't already know. Or something like that. You know the meme, it's been circulating around dA for ages. 1. Sometimes I read books I don't like only to see what all the hype is about. I treat them as parodies and laugh my ass off. 2. I read fantasy but I don't play rpg. I don't like rpg. 3. There was a period in my life when I wore a pendant 24/7, taking it off only to shower. 4. I'm very superstitious when it comes to certain things. I specifically don't like number 13, to the point where I'll refuse to i.e. make an impor
a short (or not) commentary on dA v7
new version 7 Everybody seems to hate it already. I have to admit I have mixed feelings about the new layout. :o When I logged in today and saw the change, I liked it. :bulletgreen: moar space! Seriously, when v6 appeared, I thought it was incredibly messy and cluttered. :bulletgreen: less visual noise - v6 had freaking ton of gradients and decorative elements and it looked like art itself, stealing the spotlight from the actual deviations. Now it serves much better as a background. Unfortunately, after a couple of minutes, I noticed... the functionality has... actually dropped?! :bulletred: custom menu in top bar is gone. I used it a l
