dA Eclipse: Review/Analysis by Crimson-KunoichiEDIT: Forgot my section on deviation messages so....added that. Sorry. I'm sick atm so...LMAO
Alright, amongst the already reluctance I have for the new layout coming because of some aforementioned negative changes, I decided to give Eclipse a quick try and took screenshots to give a look to non-core and/or non beta-tester members and give my feedback/opinions on it.
First off, I understand the fact that since it's still in progress, there might/are bugs within the new layout that the development team are probably working on, but regardless, anything I notice in that regard will still be noted.
The main home page of deviantART:
When you reach the first page of deviantART, you are met with a similar format of the deviations, whether it be newest, or the popular, much like "wall of thumbs" layout we have currently. The only really difference, on this tab anyway, is the the theme, and there is are five o
New Stuff I GuessOk so I've seen that a lot of people seem to be starting to leave after hearing about the DA Eclipse thing, and if anyone watching me here is planning on leaving if they haven't already and you want to keep up with my art then please follow me on other sites and things too!
Picarto: https://picarto.tv/TheSaddestSam (for when I stream, which I'm planning on doing more often)
Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheSaddestSam (right now it's more personal, but I'm planning on posting art on there)

Just a vent.I don't really vent much on art platforms... mostly because I know the people who follow me are here for my art, not for my feelings, and that's totally okay.
But I can't just vent this thing on Facebook where too many of the examples of this vent happen to be. No, I'd rather vent it to strangers who aren't going to yell at me for it later.
But here's what's been weighing me down for quite some time... I see too many goddamn people who want others to make them feel better.
People want validation from others, people constantly post that "People with X-illness like me just need someone who's going to constantly tell them they're wonderful, needed, loved, etc."
But do any of those people ever actually reciprocate it or do that for other people? Hardly. HARDLY. And unfortunately, that means the person doing it for them has to do a LOT of work that usually doesn't have an end point.
Being the one thing that stands between someone's sanity and total mental breakdown i
ANIMATOR/ARTIST MASTERLISTHECK YEAH OK IVE REALLY BEEN WANTING TO MAKE SOMETHING LIKE THIS FOR A WHILE !!! im PUMPED
due to recent events and also starting up school again i've been wanting to make something for myself to refer to it whenever i need inspiration and advice, but i thought other animators could use it too.. so here it is !! This is mostly for people who are planning on doing animation as a career, but others could possibly use it too !

First off, be sure to take breaks while animat
Help make 2017 a great year!If you read this, please share it to your watchers!
2016 was far by one of the most devastating years to be on the internet. But we shouldn't dwell on the past anymore, because a new year is beginning and we can all start fresh! To make sure you all are happy and safe, we need to take care of ourselves this year.
I know it might be a long read, but at least try to read whatever interests you! Feel free to comment below with your resolutions for 2017, I could give some tips on how to make sure you get what you need this year!
Also, no need to comment on hypocritical things, I plan to change too!
I've seen a lot of trouble caused by this, and I promise you the fix is super easy, but it's not exactly preferred. All you have to do is make sure your watermark covers the actual picture itself. Ever wonder why DeviantART makes their watermark logo so huge? It's because they cannot help you with probl
[IMPORTANT] PLEASE HELP ME GET A NEW PIANO!~ CURRENT PROGRESS: 353€ COLLECTED ~
Update 2018/09/10: I got 50 bucks from a friend of mine and I'll take my birthday money (150€) for the piano sooooo I just got 200 bucks more! <3

As some of you already know, I attend a full-time profession school to become a speech and voice therapist. A very important part of the school is the musical education - we have speech, singing and piano lessons. Unfortunately, my old 2010 Yamaha keyboard is broken and I need a new piano heccin quickly - my school offers practice rooms, but they are closed at the weekend and in the holidays which means that I won't be able to practise at home ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Idea about character creation projectI have a really neat idea but it would be more fun if more people enter.
As you most likely have noticed, themed character designs are the new trend on dA. It started with simple adopts but now many, many, many closed arpg species do it like that.
Not everyone has the money for those designs. Or the points lol.
So, why not making something like this yourself?
To get themed character you need nothing else than a creative mind.
If you want them to be a part of an arpg, then open your own. Maybe with your friends. It doesn´t need a big group to have fun in an arpg unless you only opened this to make money or to get famous. Then this journal might be the wrong place for you, sorry that you had to read till that point
Here is the idea.
There will be one selected theme each week (or maybe several a week for the people who are quicker).
And everyone who wants to enter designs a character (any species you want / have legal access
Hello there!! In my gallery you’ll find both digital and traditional art. I make more cartoon-ish characters that I'd like to, and more art with animals, so I also try to make realistic artwork, mostly still life, nature, and animals, in order to balance out my subjects of drawing and vary my abilities. But for now, you’ll see a lot of cartoon art and some realism here and there QwQ
You’ll also find my OCs, as well as work and concepts for the stories I create such as webcomics or animations/films. Other than art, you may find animations, descriptions, WIPs, designs, and other works for the projects.
I am working towards becoming an Illustrator as a job/career, alongside with a job helping animals (either dog grooming or veterinary technician). Critique, constructive criticism, and feedback are always welcome!! I enjoy looking for ways to improve so that I can work towards being a better illustrator and improving my art (ᵔᴥᵔ)
Other than that goal, my main goal with my art overall is to help others with art and in general. Whether it’s a drawing to make them happy or to serve a purpose, or just to assist otherwise, I just wish to make things easier for other people by helping them. <3
I’m also still trying to find my specific style and what I would specialize in, like most aspiring artists here ^_^
And here is My Commission Journal if you’d like to check that out ^^
As a side note, my fursona is Juniper, also known as Peppoco, the walking red velvet cake usually with a sweater and glasses.
Other Places To Find Me:
Amino: (I join a bajillion communities; just ask to know which ones) all have Juniper J.
YouTube: Juniper Scribblez (I only use this to comment)
Toyhouse: toyhou.se/JuniperScribblez (All my characters are here! They’ll be sorted by what stories/worlds they belong to)
