Migration
Since yesterday I've been sticking post-its like those all over my room. :D I'm learning Portuguese! By Christmas, I'll be back with VelCake (https://www.deviantart.com/velcake) in Brazil. :excited: I'm excited. For years I visited once or twice a year for only a few weeks at a time, but this time I plan to stay for a year. A full year! We'll find our own apartment and everything. :worry: I'm nervous too. I'm rarely unworldly or naive, yet I've lived in the same house with the same parents and brothers all my life. And now I'm going to figure out a whole new life in a whole new country. I'll be writing here occasionally. Stories about my preparations. Rants about my fea

dA Suggestion: Commission Process
More sales, more security, more money per sale, more happiness I'll briefly describe the current Commissioning process before I explain the improvements I'd like to propose. Then I'll include a simple mock-up that shows some of the changes. I'll end with a list of advantages I had in mind for these changes. (I mainly wanted to bring up these ideas for discussion, more than say "the current process is wrong and this is right". A process like that of Commissions is rather sensitive as money is involved, and there's likely to be downsides I had not considered.) The current process The potential Buyer searches commissions or finds the widget o

Simple Sta.sh Tutorial
What is Sta.sh? Sta.sh is a new system for submitting art to dA. You can find the link in your 'submit' menu. Why use it?Main advantages are that you can submit deviations faster, from more places (currently with apps for android, iPhoto, mac, iOS, etc., as well as from email and FTP) and you can keep them private if you want. You can then share it only with those people you want - for example to ask their opinion before submitting it to your gallery. How to submit?Submitting basically happens in two parts.

Get your Art some Attention on deviantART
Five basic tips to get your Art some Attention, Appreciation & Audience on deviantART Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not. First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. ;P This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.:nod: Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow a

A better 2018, two months in
In the last days of 2017, I resolved to do my little part to make 2018 better. I decided that I'm going to change, then what I'm going to change and why those things, and how I'll change them. Two months in, let's see how it's going. I Overeating: I've made some progress. I have done this maybe 4 times, and mostly only slightly. I still rarely separate the lunch and dinner before I start eating. What helped me get this right was mostly just having made myself the promise of not doing it, and having seriously thought through the consequences. II Sleeping enough: I'm as surprised as you, but I actually made progress! Especially in February,

For a better 2018, final part
So far, I have decided that I'm going to change, then what I'm going to change and why I'm going to change those things. The last question: how? Ideally each of these would be a skill or habit that I train until it's natural and mostly effortless. I can only sketch the initial attempt at improving these things. With time I'll learn if they work or not and change the method. I'll reflect in a month. I For overeating, the first step could be to decide how much I'll eat before I start eating. Ellen and I often cook more than we need to leave some for lunch. I could separate this in advance and leave only the amount I intend to eat, before I e
