New dA preview image display bug

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 15, 2019, 10:34 AM
In case you are having broblems displaying some of my recent wallpaper images (like I do), just click when the enlarge magnifier cursor appears (Firefox, Chrome) or just click in the middle of the place where the preview should be visible (Edge) and the full preview will appear. For some reason, dA won't display my previews in diminished version now. Mind you - you don't have to download anything, just click in the center of the image display area. Seems dA is experiencing yet another image display disaster...  ...I hope it will get resolved soon.

2019 Challenge

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 3, 2019, 9:31 AM
Sooo, after the last year's wasteland of my gallery (yup, 10 pieces isn't enough, no, sir!) I have decided to step it up a bit and sketch/draw/paint/doodle at least one artwork/drawing a day. Yeah, I know that I might not have enough time to make it all the time, so, If I don't make it on the particular day, I'll have to make up for it the next day. Therefore, ideally, I'll try to make 365 pieces of art (or at least a sketch) but minimally I'd like to reach at least 350 pieces this year. Obviously, I don't want to fill my gallery with random sketches and studies. That's why I have decided to create a complete dump of my instagram profile (mostly - the better artworks will still be released across all of my platforms). Anyway - here are the other pages connected with my artworks that are legit:

Instagram - www.instagram.com/joejazzcz/
As I've stated - this is basically a dustbin for anything that comes to my mind - don't expect quality but rather quantity. Sometimes some of my older pieces pop up as well.

Artstation - www.artstation.com/joejazz
A mirror to this site, just with less amount of artworks. I still add some of my older pieces here and there.

Facebook - [link]
I honestly don't know why I keep this one - sometimes I put here sketches, sometimes I just link artworks from dA - it's more of an insurance that this one is the only legit profile on FB (it's not a personal page).

WTF deviantArt?

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 13, 2018, 11:10 AM
Has anyone noticed the downgrade of quality upon the image upload? All of my old works look OK but the new piece just looks like shit - pixelated, smudged - has DA changed the uploading algorithm or what o.O Am I the only one seeing this? If not, this is unacceptable.
You can compare the difference here:
Artstation - cdnb.artstation.com/p/assets/i…
DeviantArt - images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca8877…

Edit: It seems that .PNG won't get degraded.
Edit2: Alright, so, now, all of the artworks are downgraded.

A decade...

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 31, 2016, 8:38 AM
A decade ago I used to wear long hair...
A decade ago I didn't need to wear glasses to watch a movie in a cinema...
A decade ago I lived with my parents...
A decade ago I didn't know anything about women...
A decade ago I made my first space art...
...and started my deviantArt profile as JoeJesus.

Now, I still don't know anything about women and I'm still here on dA. At least everything else has changed :D

Facebook artist profile page with WIP's...

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 18, 2016, 9:44 AM
Yeah, the title is self-explanatory, I'm just trying to open a path to a regular/non-artistic populace, nothing time demanding and I won't be putting unfinished stuff here on dA (I don't like the scraps section too much - nobody watches it anyway). So, if you'd like to see minor sketches, WIPs and other stuff:
www.facebook.com/JoeJazzCZ/

And I really need to finish some other promo stuff before people strt thinking I'm not active anymore - trust me, I am but I'm just in the middle of a more hectic portion of my life. Joey out...

The first video with some of my artpieces... ...it's animated and took just a few hours to render... ...I hope it will get better with more experience, it's not bad but I need to work on the synchronization with music and overal pacing - this one is rather on the ambient side.

ArtStation

Journal Entry: Mon May 23, 2016, 9:21 AM
I'm slowly establishing a profile on another site - ArtStation.
Don't worry, I'm not leaving dA any time soon but the difference of quality of the art here and there is just abysmal - when you look
at the dA main page, you'll mostly see soft-porn, mediocre, journal bullsh*t and other pieces that really shouldn't be the staple of what people can do here.
If you look at the main page of AS, what you'll see is just awesome - I get inspired and motivated just by logging there and I spend ludicrous amount of time
by browsing the awesome pieces that are shown on the main page. It's like dA 7 years ago. Anyway - here is the profile if you want to follow and/or have your own profile there
so I can check yours:

Patreon

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 26, 2015, 1:06 PM
So, I have started my Patreon profile. At this point it's just a simple "pledge something if you care" page. As you know, I provide wallpapers for free (even though it's only for your personal use), I don't even put watermarks over my art, so you don't have to send me anything. However, I plan to evolve the whole campaign into some sort of "art for a request" project and if I get enough devoted fans, maybe make some small profit when I'm at it. However, I might decide to add a tutorial or two (since every once in a while someone asks me how I do this and that) for those who pledge themselves to me (just not now - wait untill I give you a go). If you have any ideas about what goals / campaigns I should include in the Patreon go ahead and put them in the comments below.

Oh, and here is the link: www.patreon.com/joejazz?ty=h

Look what I found...

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 11:38 AM
I was dusting off my old favourites and found this!
We Are Space Art by FacundoDiaz
We Are Space Art by FacundoDiaz (great thanks to you)

Reminds me of days back in the past when we all shined! Sh*t, some of those guys are not even active anymore (or dev-active)... 
Time flies but the art fortunately stays - anyone reading this - if you like space art and are new (relatively - 3 years and younger), go there and see all the art made by these other folks (some of which you might already know).

Friend Feature

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 17, 2015, 12:06 AM
So, finally my friend has reached deviantart - well, first he had to go through a lot of adventures, wonderous battles, creepy dungeons and some festivals... ...to decide to leave us (well, I don't blame him) and move to New Zealand. He has always been a good photographer but only Hobbits could teach him how to properly enjoy simple nature and, y'know, easy stuff - go there, enjoy his gallery, you should like what you'll find there - I know I do (and I know he has tons of stuff to add yet).

Idea

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 2, 2015, 4:18 PM
I think I make my own comic - It's going to be a mix of Firefly, my space art, Star Wars and fantasy stuff... ...the main character is going to be a combination of Peter Quill and Tony Stark with some pokemon beast that's actually more intelligent (but really enjoys placing protagonist  in undesirable events) than the main character. Genre - comedy/action drama. Expected to be released - my funeral.

12th DD and DDD (rant with some strong language)

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 21, 2014, 12:04 PM
So, one of my recent pictures received a DD today:
Frontier Skies by JoeyJazz

Big thanks goes to Ginryuzaki for the suggestion and and TehAngelsCry for the feature. Love you both! :hug:

Now for the rant, shall we? Why is it called DDD? It stands for "dead daily deviation".
You might think "pff, of course it's dead for you - you've got 11 already".
Well, that's not the reason. I am happy for each and every one of them
and I am thankful to those who provided them. I am always super-excited
when I get one... ...or I should say I was. Since the new design has been
introduced, the daily deviations have lost almost any point. Back then, I used to
be amazed by all the nice feedback, favs, number of views and exposition it
provided. Each and every DD I recieved was viewed by app. 10-15k times,
faved by around 1200 people, recieved around 100 comments and my
profile page got visited by 1500-2000 visitors on the day it was displayed.
This last daily deviation (yeah I know it's been there for just 12 hours, but you can do the
count) recieved around 160 faves, 1300 views and ..moment of patience.. 2 comments
from which one was a spambot.
Now I checked all the other daily deviations for today - there were only 23, which is
usually a good sign for exposition (I am used to be one of 40) - and it's always
the same story - around 1500 views for today, 80 to 120 faves and a few comments,
those that have more had received those earlier when they got on the main page.
This is by the way the case of my "Frontier Skies" DD for today - it was
displayed on the main page for about 12-14 hours (6h on most popular for the last 8
and the rest was spent in the section for the most popular for the last 24 hours)
and it recieved 5 times more attention on the old design on 5th October.
In short and with the famous words by Angry Joe (not me):
"DA, you done fucked it up!"
No, seriously, do something about the exposition because now the DDs
are pointless. When I visit dA main page, the only thing I can see is what's hot, which
really doesn't excite me because of redtube (you know what I mean) and which
gives exposition for the same images for the last 3-5 days. It's fucking annoying.
At least put those DDs back in the footer, so no-one else has to suffer like we do.
Look, I have recieved quite a lot of attention already. I'll leave to you whether
it's deserved or not but it's one of the main reasons I'm here - exposition.
I don't give a fuck about social networks - I already have a facebook profile.
And I think that many artists feel the same - we are insecure creatures, we'd like
to post the image, reply to comments, get attention/praise/critique and move on.
I know there are people that are more connected with dA headquarters who watch
me and they might listen at least to a bit and might be more reasonable.
Your new system doesn't work.. ..it's fucked... ...got it? Good! End of rant...
