Hey there folks and watchers, sorry I haven't update my journal entry. The last time I updated my journal entry was last year. Reason why I don't writes journal nowadays is because I don't know what to writes. I also removed some of my bad journal entries because they're nothing but an old shame to me and also make me cringed for reading it. To this day I feel regretted for writing it. So just to informed you guys that I no longer accepting requests. At this point requests are now closed. If you tried requests me something, you will not receives a replies. Before I finish writing this journal, I am going to give an advises that you should and shouldn't do on Deviantart. Be careful though, this advises might be long.1. Upload your art at least once or twice a week
If you upload your arts every once or twice a week you will get comment and favourites. If your busy with real life (such as school and work), it's okay everybody knows that real life are more important.2. Takes your time on your drawing
Whether you do digital arts or traditional drawings. Remember, always take your time on your drawing. If don't take your time, it will be a mess.3. Always submits your arts to the groups that you joined
Your arts will not received favourited or comments if you don't submitted to the group. If you submitted to the group your arts will received favourited and comments. Not only that, it allowed you to get notice. Remember every groups has a rules so respect it and follow it. Also you need to be careful when you want to join a specific groups because some of the group are pretty much dead/inactive is due to the Fouder and Co-Founder of specific groups are leaving DA and don't bother to come back.4. Screenshots and Demotivational Posters are not arts
Deviantart is a website that upload your own arts that you created. If you want to upload screenshots (edited one or not) and demotivational posters, pleaso post it on Imgur or Photobucket not Deviantart. No wonder most of the groups that I joined on DA doesn't allowed them.5. Don't relying on pageviews too much
I have noticed that a lot people on DA relied on pageviews. So please don't relied on pageviews too much. Pageviews doesn't makes you better artist being hard work that makes you better artist. I admitted to myself, I used to get excited when I reached 1000 pageviews but after I got more than 1000 of pageviews it started to annoyed me. For those you who draw only for pageviews you guys are probably a self centered jerk. Seriously, look at yourself in the mirror.6. If you want to upload NSFW always turn on the mature content filter
NSFW stands for Not Suitable For Work. It means specific stuff that are not aimed for someone under 18. If you upload this kind of stuff, please enable the mature content on your arts. I have notice that a lot of people upload this kind of stuff on DA ended up spamming on my Deviantwatch which is really annoying.7. Don't harasses other DA users just because they draw specific Franchises that you don't like
It is not very nice to harasses other DA users just because they draw fanart of cartoons, anime, video games, or movies that you don't like. If you don't like it, don't look at it or comment it. Is that simple enough to you?! I admitted, I used to get harassed by some idiots on DA just because I drew Ben 10 fanarts. To this day, I never lived it down. Frankly, I am very glad that idiots harassed me four years ago are banned for good.8. Never take comments for granted
Comments are never given thing. Never take comments for granted. A "thank you" doesn't take one minute to type. Always replied comments to show that you're grateful it means that appreciate and answer all feedback. Whether is my watchers, friend or some random DA users that I do not know. I always replied them no matter what except someone who being total douche.9. Stay away from DA Forums far away as Possible
I used to go to DA Forums once but I found out that most of the users on DA forums are nothing but an arsehole and morons. The reason why I got DA forums once. It's because at that time I have a hard time to upload my arts and I keep getting "unknown error" whenever I tried to upload it. When I post my first forum post about unknown error, the answers that I got are mostly delete SYSTEM 32. I googled SYSTEM 32 and I found out that if you delete SYSTEM 32, your PC would stop working properly. For those of you don't know about Delete System 32. Delete System 32 is a popular troll schemes to deceive inexperienced PC users to deleting the Windows directory called System 32. knowyourmeme.com/memes/delete-… So whatever you do, stay way from DA Forums far away as possible and better yet don't delete SYSTEM 32 on your PC or you'll regret it. So trust me on this.10. If you found the ads on DA annoyed you, use adblock extension to blocked them
For those you who didn't upgrade your Deviantart account to premium membership (CORE) yet and keep seeing ads on DA, you can use adblock extension called Ublock Origin to block it. So far in my opinion Ublock Origin are the best adblock extensions for me. Just go ahead and try it.11. Always accept The Constructive Criticism
Most artist on DA get defensive when someone give them constructive criticism. Always accept Constructive Criticism because they allowed you to improved your drawing and also allowed you to learned from your mistakes. 12. Never writes a bad journal entries (Such as Rant etc.)
I used to write it but I pretty much deleted some of it because I feel ashamed for writing it. So never make bad journal entries, it doesn't makes you a better person.13. Haters doesn't make me famous
There is no such thing as "Hater make me Famous." Received a lot of hate doesn't makes you famous. It makes you infamous. Infamous means someone who well known for doing a horrible deeds. I know this is not DA related but closed enough.14. Don't uses bases or make recolors on other artists artwork.
Bases or recolors considered to be tracing. Don't do that kind stuff please. Real artist never do that kind of stuff!15. Never Begged other DA users to comments and favourites your arts
Seriously, is not cool. So don't that. All you have to do is wait until they come to you.Thanks for watched me my watchers and I feel very grateful for that. I hope you guys don't got bored reading this. If you get bored, sorry about that.
