My Bio

I'm a middle school teacher from southern Germany and a self-taught digital artist.

Please DO NOT use any pictures from my gallery for photo-manipulations or similar! It takes me hours over hours to create original pictures from scratch and I try to encourage everyone to do the same.

If you're interested in prints of my work, look here:

How to search DeviantArt (2021) by MorJer, journal

0 min read
I've been meaning to put together a new feature for a while now. I used to feature art once a month and I enjoyed doing so. But in all honesty, it just feels meaningless now. I know this feature will be shown to the people whose work you'll find further down, but they are not the people I want to reach. I know it'll be shown to the few of my watchers that are still active on DA, but that number seems the be declining with every day that passes along with the number of active users on DA in general. There's no journal hub page, so beyond that DA's algorithm will just show it to a few random deviants most of which will probably just scroll past the header without opening it. With the view counter no longer counting views, I have no way of actually tracking how many people will really see this. Eh. But I'd also feel bad if I didn't try to promote beautiful artwork from time to time. It's been so long since I last featured art. So here, if you're among the good folk this journal entry was

or: How to *actually* find what you are looking for when using the search engine Ever since DA rolled out the Eclipse update that turned DeviantArt into Instagram 2.0, sorting the millions of images here has become a challenge. It is not easy to break out of the bubble that is your RFY (recommended for you) feed. The Topics are essentially static galleries that cannot be used in combination with the search, and the search engine itself can be rather counter-productive if you don’t know exactly how it works. There are tutorials on how to use the new search engine and DA has a help page with information, but nothing I could find was actually all that helpful, so here is an in-depth look at DA’s search engine and a tutorial on how to use a fairly easy method to work around DA's weird presets to find what you are actually looking for, especially when looking for stock images, other resources or certain types of media. Understanding how the search engine operates Before we go into any more

Thank you for the advice, I appreciate that

still enjoying your work. However there is a new art that can only be seen by a Watcher. I "watch" your profile but still the image is "locked". Thoughts?

(btw whenever I do find an art on the Net that is obviously yours I do comment on who created it, giving proper credit. )

It cannot be seen by watchers. Only by watches. ;) (And now I feel like I should apologize for that joke)

???? sorry I'm a bit dim I didn't "get" that. but whatever. Thanks for explaining. I still really enjoy your works :D

Heya Jerry

Just wanted to say that I admire your work because it has this illustrative quality and magical atmosphere to it

You are a brilliant artist with incredible imagination. I am watching you now. I think I would have faved all your pieces! I had to stop myself. Here is a piece I did to let people know I am watching them!

Im'm not sure if these are helpful to you in fighting art theft, but I immediately thought of you:

Tom Scott talks about Copyright/stealing works:…

Company that tracks down and sues art thieves in bulk: (Not sure what it costs/what cut they take.)

Best wishes.
