Some Rambling + Life Update? (I am back!!)
Hello everyone! I'm not sure how many people still follow my account or even read journals anymore. I feel like dA has been absolutely crushed by other social media websites like Instagram. I feel like this is a shame, because they are not websites focused on Art. While that may be a good thing, because it makes you reach a bigger audience, I feel like 80% of said audience doesn't really get what I do and can't be considered an "artistic" community. Does this make sense? It's now been 8 years since I created my DeviantArt account (August 2010) and, while this page holds many precious memories from when I was a little wimpy kid (I am now a w

Anime Con Review: Iberanime-OPO 2015
Hello everyone! As some of you may know, I attended a convention this weekend, which I've been attending for 3 years now, here in Portugal called Iberanime-OPO. The con happens twice a year: once in Lisbon (IA-LX) in April/May and once in Porto (IA-OPO) in October. As usual, I shared a booth with my cinnamon-roll buddies, KirameKirai (https://www.deviantart.com/kiramekirai) , O-hikaku (https://www.deviantart.com/o-hikaku) and HllR0 (https://www.deviantart.com/hllr0) (who I met for the first time irl!!!) So, some watchers here and followers on twitter suggested I'd make a journal explaining how the con went and what I did there, so that's what I'm doing now. This was part of the merchandise I made. Some prints, stickers, bookmarks and notebooks (c

Core membership prices
Seriously, what the heck happened to the prices for premium/core membership?? It's totally understandable that DeviantArt needs the money received from buyers to keep going and that the community has grown brutally after 15 years of existence, however, I don't think it's understandable how much the prices for core membership have risen. When I first joined this website (august 2010 - 5 years ago), the prices were much more reasonable and I managed to buy around 50 months or so of premium membership, only with point commissions (I charged about 200-500 points for each one, which is around 2-5€ a drawing... yup), while using the beautifu
