Hey, thanks for stopping by! Plenty to see... if you're really bored.
Check out this out - The Very First Deviation! www.deviantart.com/view.php?id…
Interesting stuff on deviantArt lately, been doing a lot of commenting and chatting it up in #devart
, and hitting the forums a bit.
It's funny, there are so many deviants who will most likely never get noticed by the general public, and there's so many who are yearning for anybody to give their stuff a look. I like the trend of people who are out there trying to help out and give attention to some people who may feel like they've been overlooked. If you're here reading this, and want some comments, let me know, I'll give it a look and try my best to comment on your work(s).
A lot of people want to get popular and well known on DeviantArt, whether it be because they want to be popular with other people, want attention drawn to their pieces, or just want to feel like a part of the community. Well, for anyone who wants to know how (which I've seen a lot of forum posts asking) here it is again. (Foolproof method btw ) The key word is Interaction
1) Comment on other people's works (A lot!). If you expect to have people look at your stuff, you gotta get out there and check out theirs. If they don't know who you are, they can't check out your stuff. But if they see your name commenting on their works they'll be likely to at least stop by and say thanks, maybe even comment on your stuff.
2) Hit up the forum and shoutbox with posts. Many people hang out here, and if you go on there and converse with people, then they get to know about you and what opinions and what you have to say. They'll be more likely to talk to you personally, check out your page, or comment on your stuff if they know you or see your name over and over again.
3) Head on over to #devart
chat room on IRC (use [link]
or something like it to access). A lot of people hang out there and it's a good way to interact with everyone on a more personal level cause you actually get to talk to them. Great way to make friends and get to know other people.
Basically, like I said, all you gotta do is go out there and interact with other deviants, make friends, get to know people so they can get to know you. Of course if you have incredible pieces of art or poetry, you'll probably get noticed by people just casually surfing, but sometimes even the best stuff gets overlooked because no one knows that person.
And don't get discouraged, it takes time (lots)! I don't think I'm up on the popular level, nor even known by many. But I've made a few friends, and I'm starting to get to a point where people know me. But remember, there's no popularity contest here, and you don't need to be popular. My reasons are so I can immerse myself fully into this awesome website, get to know people and be friends with them. Of course I'd like attention for my pieces, but it's cool if I don't. Just keep it all in mind that popularity isn't all important. Do your best, make friends, get to know DA and DA will get to know you.
Oh yeah, Eternal Darkness for the Nintendo Gamecube is the best game out there for consoles right now. Just awesome .
Work's fine. But getting repetitive and boring. Plus it's fustrating seeing this girl I really like, because she's already someone else's girlfriend, so I gotta respect that and not try anything. Just gotta figure a way to get rid of him now
A good friend BeyondThoughts
recently left deviantART for personal reasons. He took down all his works, but gave me permission to submit the one piece "Hollow" to DAprints for printing. I may resubmit it here also because it's a great piece, and a nice show of his talent (which is incredible, DA lost a great artist). I'll miss ya man.
If you use litestep, I would recommend keeping an eye on voodoochild
and his Manticore theme in development, looks to be pretty cool when it's done.
