Hello!!! 

Yes you read it well, I need pictures of people haha

Let me explain: 
For my story, I need to make some kind of contract (like a CV) of people who have been killed.
For that, I need at least three pictures of different people. The picture should be very neutral (like an identity picture) and it's not necessary to have a good quality!

I know it's a bit strange, but I need them before this week end! 
So if you're interested, it would greatly help!!

I hope you're having a great week!!
Hi everyone!!

I'm just making this simple journal to share to you my feeling about how DeviantArt is now.

I've been here for several years, I've grown here, and I've became an artist because of DeviantArt, because of you all.

DeviantArt is the only place for me to share my work and communicate with other artists. Without DeviantArt, I'll be lost.

Being an artist with no one to see you, it's like painting in the dark.



And now, I'm feeling bad. I have the feeling that people are less and less here, that there's more and more not art related post.

Where are all the creative people, buried in all this nude pictures, fetish drawings...

I loved DeviantArt because everyone could join, young, old, unexperienced, pro artist, everyone. People were trying to get better, to dream of being one day one of the great artists here.

It was a place where people would meet people, every people were accepted, even Syrian one.  The hypocrisy of deviantArtEdit #5
Well, I'll be damned
Staff reply here: comments.deviantart.com/1/7310…
And we WON! We did it!
and my comment here: https://comments.deviantart.com/1/731065159/4555022355 stating why this is still up
________________________________
Edit #4: Iran is geobanned too see here Imagine!
Bravo deviantart, bravo, I applaud you
:clap:
Please share this, every bit of support counts. I am probably getting my account perma banned after this journal, but I am voicing this discrimination and I want as many people to see it as possible. 
I know people will have various opinions about this. Voice them as you please, but politics shouldn't meddle with art. This isn't fair. This isn't right. You can't deny me service because some politician says so.
Edit: feb 17th: There's a change.org petition now too
 (edit: no more geoban!  Si vis PacemAs of March 1st 2018, I can officially say we won. Deviantart is accessible again. I've held back on posting anything until I made sure we have officially won and here it is:

I am beyond grateful for everyone who fought with me, for every single comment, for every friend and stranger who chose to take a stand and join their voices to mine. None of this would have happened if it wasn't for you. Yes, you, you've helped make a difference in the world. That difference ensured that people who have to survive through bad situations day in and day out can still come here for a safe haven away from the grim realities outside. Politics should never restrict art, people should not be discriminated against for whatever reason. 
Our actions didn't stop at Syria, no, they also extended to help Iran, and Crimea which all had been geobanned earlier for the same claims. You've changed the world for over 100 million people. Yes, I know that not
)

DeviantArt, you're one of the greatest things that happened to me, and I've the feeling I'm slowly losing you and I'm so sad. Where will I share my art? Where will I interact with other artists? Where will I see the birth of new artists?

As I said, it's just a feeling I have, I don't even know if people will actually read this, I'm feeling so alone, without future, I guess that's the fate of artist in the end.

Thank you for reading this if you did!

Have a great week!!

Edit: I don't blame any staff members or community volunteers, they're not responsible in any way, this is just a change over all the internet I think.
Also, thank you for your heartwarming messages, you're all awesome, and you're showing that this community is still strong!

My Kickstarter Campaign

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 10, 2017, 1:37 PM
Gallery l Watch Me l Note Me

Hi everyone!

So I've made a recent poll, to know if people liked Kickstarter, and apparently, people do like it!

So I've launched a Kickstarter campaign to help me make the second part of The Killer's Paradox.
The first part:


Kickstarter Campaign



What is Kickstarter?


From Kickstarter: "Kickstarter helps artists, musicians, filmmakers, designers, and other creators find the resources and support they need to make their ideas a reality. To date, tens of thousands of creative projects — big and small — have come to life with the support of the Kickstarter community."

You give a certain amount of money to help projects and you earn something in return. Even the smallest amount means a lot.
If the goal isn't reach, the person who made this campaign won't earn any money, and you won't loose any money if you gave some.


What will I earn if I help on Kickstarter?


Everyone who pay will have access to the updates and behind the scenes but also full size files of the paintings.

2 euros: full sizes wallpapers and updates
5 euros: Half of all the full speedpaintings
10 euros: All the full speedpaintings   
30 euros: A 20x30cm high quality prints (dated and signed) shipped to your address (it can be of any painting you want or even photos)
50 euros: Two 20x30cm high quality prints (dated and signed) shipped to your address
100 euros: A 25x20cm art book with all the paintings (+ other things) signed and shipped to you!

How much I'm asking?


I'm asking for 200 euros, just enough to upgrade my computer a little. I didn't want to ask too much, because I already feel bad to ask.


What will the second part be about?


It'll be a prequel to the first part. I don't want to tell too much, to not spoil you!


Of course, I'm not forcing you of anything, and I totally understand why people don't want to give.
But if you like my work, and you want to help me, then this is a great way to do so!

I hope you'll all have a great week end, and thank you for your time!

My biggest project!!

Hi everyone!! 

Yes, I'm still alive haha

So, I've been away a little because I was working on a little movie/animated pictures and music!

Here it is:



It's my very first time doing this, the music, the montage, the animation!

It took me far more time than I wanted to because my computer couldn't run the software very well and it was very very hard not to give up sometimes. I really want to improve, and make bigger things in the future!

So I really really really hope you'll like it!

If you want to support me and help me make the part 2, here's my Patreon:
www.patreon.com/mariestars

The music (instrumental and with voice) is available on Bandcamp (for free, but you can put the price you want) and the lyrics are there too:
marieraine.bandcamp.com/

I really really hope you'll all doing well, I can't wait to check your beautiful art!

Contest: Show me your Rage WINNERS

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 16, 2017, 12:03 PM
Gallery l Watch Me l Note Me

Hi everyone!

So again, the winners have been hard to choose, I choose mainly on the emotions and creativity. I was really happy to see that people participated again!
I was amazed by your talents, and by how differently people can see this emotion.


First place:

Show me your rage by RafaCM

This one shows perfectly how rage is. It's not something you can necesserly show, it's something that can be buried underneath your mask of supposed happiness.
I really loved the idea of ripping on the face. The fact that the character is trying to show the rage, and how difficult it is for her to show her true emotions is very very interesting. The mask he is ripping looks like a theatral mask, and it perfectly fit the fact that he's playing the emotion of happiness. 
I really love this movement the piece have, it perfect fit the rage emotion.
This piece of art does not only show the rage someone can feel, but also how it is to show this emotions, specially when it has been hidden from all this time. It's like the character is blowing up, all his body seems to tear appart.
I hope my interpretation is not too far from what the artist wanted to show.
I could talk about this piece even more, the only thing I can add, it's very very amazing.

Second place:

Out of Control (contest entry) by AllyN-One

Now compared to the first one, we have another interpretation of rage. The first one, was something hard to show, and possibly buried. 
In this piece, the rage is shown as some kind of demon, controlling the character. 
I really like the mix of emotions her eyes are showing. She seems sad, angry, lost and indeed, not in control. 
There is again a very interesting inpression of movement.
Compared to the first one, which treated rage as an internal conflict, not affecting others, this one show what could happen if you let the demon Rage take control of your body. You can be hurt indeed, but you can hurt other people as well.
I hope again I interpreted it well.
This is a great piece.

Third place:

... by Tegori
Tegori did it again! I never thought an abstract art can make me feel so much anger. It perfectly shows a pure rage. It's a mess, everything seemed ripped of, and I'm specially attracted by the fact it looks like a never ending spiral. Rage is indeed something you can be lost in. The more you feel it, the more you loose yourself in the deep blurry dark and it perfectly fit the second piece!
Really a great job!

Contest: Traditional Portrait WINNERS

Gallery l Watch Me l Note Me

Hi everyone!!

So this has been hard to choose, all the entries to my contest were awesome!
You know what? I want to make a new one, if you have a suggestion about what theme you want for the next contest, please comment!

I judged mainly on the emotions I felt while watching the portrait.


First place:

the pain behind.. by Tegori
Seriously, it's very expressive, and it's very impressive since it shows emotions without showing the eyes. It has a lot of movement and texture that add a lot of power to this piece. The most powerfull piece of all the entries!
Amazing drawing!!

Second place:



Soooo it was hard, because this piece is sincerely AMAZING (as the others of course) but I was impressed by the idea behind it. It didn't make the first place, because I didn't feel as much emotions as the firtst one. 
This piece is very well done, and powerful.
Well done!

Third place:


This piece is wonderful. The eyes are beautiful and I love the calm feeling coming with it. The colors are beautifully choosen and the idea is great. 

This is all the other entry, please check them, there are all awesome!
.:Contest:. Traditional Portrait by Hane-no-hi A Cold December by K-Zlovetch sere by Tegori


You know what? I want to make a new one, if you have a suggestion about what theme you want for the next contest, please comment!

What is going on?!

Journal Entry: Wed May 24, 2017, 3:01 PM

Hi everyone, 

I talk to you today because I'm bit sad, angry and disapointed.

Let me explain the situation: I made a recent painting, some of my watchers comment on it, and I thank you for that. But what I don't understand, is that I got more view than before, but far less fav than I usually do. 

Damn, I worked so hard on this painting, I know it's not perfect, but why I get so ignored while others don't move there arse and get thousands of favs? I always try to work more, and get better, I even try new things, happier things, that some requested and what is the result? Ignored again. I try to be creative, not making fan art anymore, I try to be true, showing real emotions and still nothing. 

I thought it was dA, that it's going down and all, but I searched here, and a lot of people are not affected by that, plus, I am viewed.
So the problem is me. And now I don't understand, really. I work more, I though I made tone of progress!! I need to earn a living, and the only place I can share my work is here! I have tones of cool projects, and ideas, and I keep on working, thinking that one day I will shine in the dark, but today, I am exhausted of this.

I watch 1408 people, and I check EVERYTHING they make, and I fav EVERYTHING I like. Now, I don't want people loosing there time here when they don't have enough time in there real life, but if you watched me, I expect you to come sometimes to check, to be at least a little interested. 

And if you don't trust me, here are some stats:

The Old Legend by MarieStars   Spring by MarieStars  Voices OLD by MarieStars
Sans titre 1 by MarieStarsSans titre 3 by MarieStarsSans titre 2 by MarieStars

Sans titre 4 by MarieStars

Do you see this ratio? If people come, and don't fav/comment, that means they don't particurly like it. 
And some of you would say, that I must do that for me and all, but I am an artist, I can't do only that for me! How will I make all the project I want if I see no one is even interesting in the first place?

I'm sorry for getting so angry, but I hope you'll understand.

Anyway, here are some people I really wanted to thank, for being so nice to me, for being here, for supporting me, your support is even more important than it was before. I didn't want to continue on painting, and I went reading all your wonderful comment, and I was better, so thank you!

I must have missed some people and I'm sorry about that, I will put you when I'll find you, because I feel the urgent need to thank you for not letting me down. In the 828 people watching, you're the only one behing me.

I will never ever give up on working, and on making things I love, and I hope one day, people will love it too.
I needed to spit it out, thank you for your time reading and have a great day.

Writing:

SOULCIDE by mistertrece Those who live by the quillI shall live by the quill, rather than the sword, building an empire with my mind, and conquering hearts and souls.
For flags and lines on maps are ephemeral, but ideas last forever.
ThresholdsViolently sensitized. Sobered into the ultimate ceremony.
It is a rare thing this infatuation that grows with each sating.
Our use deepens the hunger rather than diminishing it.
Each more skilled and knowing in our carnal plunder.
Caresses that are filled with affection.
The explosive gratitude of release.
Unwearied increments of passions need.
Using and knowing.
Learning and giving.
New signs and signals in a private special language.
Freshened scents and tastes.
Sweet gasps of heat.
Knowing this.
Learning that.
Inexhaustible.
Rediscovering the remorseless, timeless now.
And with sleepy habit, turn into the next threshold.

it's all i've got
writing until i can't anymore
i guess my insomnia
is good for something
writing on the page until
my fingers bleed on the keypads
i wasn't like everyone else
i found solace in my words
written out for the masses
maybe they'll like what i do
or maybe everything i write
is being rejected by the reader
i never quite fit into the mold
and maybe i'm getting sick of it
i want to write to express
the words that i can't speak
inspiration snarls and bares
its bicuspid and carnassial teeth
licking its lips ever so
oh how it frightens me
leaving me frozen in place
we all float down here
and you will float here too
when its all said and done
i'd willing sell my soul
to entertain a crowd and
have an audience of admirers
who look at my work in awe

StrawberriesIt rained yesterday.
It rained and it washed all the mud down our street.
I went in the garden, my shoes got all wet.
Darn summer showers that smell of soaked earth.
I went in the garden, I set down my fruit basket,
And started to dig.
Until I found strawberries, crushed by the foul phlegm of sand grains and
Dead leaves.
My hands still felt cold when I washed them with hot, steamy water
From under the tap. I closed it, and ran
Ran down the porous cement stairs that stung my bare feet,
To the beat of a popular tune our neighbor Jerry played,
To my friend's house.
My friend used to stick strawberries to the tips of her fingers and
Eat them off, licking her lips with vigor.
I knocked on the door twice and waited, strawberry basket in hand.
My hand wouldn't reach the doorbell those years,
Even standing on tiptoes.
When minutes passed and I heard nothing but the roar of an airplane's rotor,
I knew just where she would be.

Always Been At HomeCan you tell me
where I've left my heart?
I must have set it down
but I don't know where to start.
Did I leave it
in the woods?
Trying, in nature,
to be understood?
Or maybe, perhaps,
in a cave?
Or sur-le-mer-

They say, that all roads
lead to Rome,
but I know where my heart is.
It's always been at home.

We've so much to thank them for
but we just pass them by.
They give us air to breathe
and shade to sit beneath.
They don't mind we pick their fruit
or form their arms to wreaths.
Our thoughts should be for them
but we just cut them down
while they stand
Our love should be unbound
DoubtTo doubt yourself
To doubt man-kind
To doubt the sky
and doubt what you find there.
Because there's nothing to courtship
there is nothing to love
And the answers are not
in the stars above.
If you trust nothing
If you trust no one
you will be alone
when day is done

I'm a sorry for the late!!
Also, I won't feature commissions of other artist in a journal every thurday, because I didn't received any notes so I guess people don't need it. If you're still interested, here it is : New Weekly ScheduleAs you can see, there is no Weekly Featured this week! In fact, I had an idea: I want to featured commissions or shop to help new artists and artisans to start! 



So here's the plan, every two week, I'll make a journal featuring the commissions or the shop of an artist.



For that it's simple, just send me a note with all the prices, images and the link for your shop and i'll put them in a journal. I can't put them by myself, because I think it's better to ask for autorizations first. You can also ask your friends to contact me.



I'll put your work every two thursday! And the weekly featured will still be every monday!

In a near future, I want to make some tiny contests but I still have to think of price, so if you have ideas for that, put them in the comments!!
As I said before, if you're passing by, you don't have to watch me or to do anything to thank me, just send me a note w


Also, I wanted to ask you: please, support as much as you can all this amazing artists or else I'm doing that for nothing. DeviantArt is not a


social media like Facebook where you can share what you eat and everything, DeviantArt is for artists, and all this artists need exposure,


comments, and support, so please, I don't want this amazing community to change, we have to support each other!!



Have a great week!!
