Journal Entry: Wed Mar 6, 2019, 1:01 AM

Following the amazing winners from February's AMA Awards, I shard a journal and a topic of utmost importance to me, many, many artists here on DA and to the DA Art community. I will continue on to support our real artists and our real art community, celebrating and in love with the amazing works and artists here that are the very corner stone and foundation upon which this entire site is based. I will continue to be passionate and proud of our members and their creations. In celebration of that, I move on to the next Delightfully Devious Feature!!!

Hello, my name is Gwyneth. I am an American living abroad in Germany and loving it. I have been working in the digital arts spectrum for 5 years now. I started off with GIMP and it wasn't long before I jumped onto Photoshop and it has been a fantastic journey since. My favorite genre is Fantasy but will also delve into the darker spectrum of works and into works that make a statement. I hope you enjoy my gallery.

Hiya everyone... much love to all. :heart: Sorry still for not being around. Was back in the hospital again. I've had some complications and then prepping for the standard gallbladder operation coming up soon so I haven't had the focus, mental clarity, computer availability, etc to leave you guys a note. Everything is and will be fine... just need time so thank you guys so much for everything and especially your patience with me.  :heart: :heart: :heart:
Sorry about not checking in lately guys... been in the hospital with a bit of pancreatitis but I'm out now and getting better. I swear, you have to beat down the doors to get them to let you out of the hospitals here, lol. While there, they also found a lovely gallstone so I  get to go back in on the 8th for surgery. It's standard getting old and genetics mixed with me not eating the best of foods, lol.


2 days ago I finally was able to open one of the many books I hoped to read while in the hospital and have found my self madly in love once more with my favorite all time author, Tanith Lee, RIP. I am reading her very first Trilogy, the BirthGrave Trilogy that she wrote when she was only 22. As soon as you read the first sentence, like a magnet, you are drawn in, almost as if against your will but you WANT to be drawn in too and the more you read, the more you want.

*SPOILER*

and re:GoT... Came right home and watched it... was sooo excited and mad when I had to miss it at first, lol... then... uuuuuuummmmmm.... some parts had me on the edge of my seat, jaw dropped, other parts just in tears and then there were the parts that made me go, what? Seriously? Just very wtfing and not up to GoT standards imo. :(  They seriously dropped the plot point on light bringer in every sense of the word but a few of the co stars did their best to make up for it, lol.

Epic dedication to GOT!!!

Not Today by ertacaltinoz
Death Is The Enemy by ertacaltinoz

When Podrick started singing this... omfg!!!! You know that less than half of them won't make it... omg!!!! I'm so nervous and sad, yet so compelled now that Winter is here. I'm crying again just listening to this... and the video??? omg... more tears!!! This is just sooo freakin' intense!




I noted OliverInk on his original work. He should be able to file a claim I think. I believe this is exactly what ErikShoemaker was talking about, and all other current and past CVs when they talk about art theft and copying ideas mixed with sharing your exact stock sources.  This was the exact argument why we shouldn't require exact links to things... Erik and all the CVs were/are exactly right... none of us want this to happen. :(  General stock links, not specific ones, unless from DA  because the Stock provider requires it from now on... Let's do our best to prevent both stock theft and art theft.  Fake artistI remind you of photomanipulation artists,
Use only legitimate stock images, here you can find information about legitimate stock. 
,
and do not use the work from other artists as stock in your work.
This work from OliverInk
 
One of used resources is from @dylancolework
 
And what next, this artist block me. And hide my comment.
Everyone keeps saying that that Eclipse is still in Beta mode, be patient. So, with that, I was holding my breath, crossing my fingers and trying to be patient but still nervous and worried. Then I just find out that it is already being forced onto people with no switch back option... no warning, nothing in it's unfinished version? I really thought we'd have more time and that they would have it completely done before the permanent switch over. :(  Eclipse is now being forced onto some users
So I just saw this post on Neaganan's journal and I am just fucking appalled with the DA Team right now. How they think they can take away the switch button for NEW and EXISITING users without any warning whatsoever is beyond me. There are already a number of complaints on how the switch has been permanentely removed for some people and I just don't trust them anymore. What the hell do they think we are? a bunch of lab rats?
Eclipse is still a work in progress and it's way too soon for them to be forcing people to use it at this stage. If I'm being completely honest, it's hardly changed since the last time I reviewed it (So I just tried DeviantArt Eclipse...) The site is still tedious to use. Too much clicking is involved to actually get anywhere, not to mention that it takes too long for pages to load on my laptop compared to the old si





I laugh with frustration and a sense of futility against the machine while I just shake my head. I have images from Pink Floyd's movie, "The Wall" about children lined up in a slaughter house while they, we all come out heterogeneous hamburger meat. "All in all you're just another brick in the wall"
One of my favorite songs.... She is a true Heroine. ;)
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. To covet truth is a very distinguished passion." George Santayana

"Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it." Winston Churchill re-quoting, altering it a bit.

We haven't moved forward one bit since this song was written politically or socially. In fact, people are begging, stalling, digging their heals in, all parties, all politics, all social awareness and caused us to stop the clock while we were unaware. Some thinking the clock was still running are even wanting us to turn the clock backwards. Some even have this romanticized ideal that there was once some some idea of a golden age that never really existed for anyone, anywhere. Along with that, the rich have only gotten richer and the poor are still poor.

Buffalo Springfield, "For What It's Worth" Written in 1966, a year before I was born.

"There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's s time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down"
Songwriters: Stephen Stills

Current profile customization: What would you like to see on dA? Input requested!Hi everyone! It's me, that dude with a bad tendency to go silent but that now and then makes some feature journals, lol.
Anyway, this time I'm here for something bigger, and I would like all of you to participate! So let's get to it...
Some of you may remember an old journal of mine, where I talked about DA and meant to spin concerns into positive thoughts: Some thoughts about DA and Photomanip Feature
The outcome was varied and in many ways very helpful, so before I continue I want to thank everyone that participated in it.
So, what's this all about?
That journal, and all of your input, sprung something much bigger. Heidi replied in the journal and also messaged me in regard to it, showed interest in our opinions and offered 16k points to make an event where deviants could express their concerns in a constructive way.
This seemed too big a t


An Eclipse compromise
 
Copy/pasted from BGai's status update: Eclipse and requesting to groupsI've just been looking a bit more at Eclipse and have found an issue I am really concerned about - I have completed the feedback form to DA but I don't believe it will change.


When I want to request images to my groups I go and browse - sometimes new work - sometimes the most popular - sometimes undiscovered - but I always choose categories depending on which group I'm requesting for - e.g. fractals if I'm requesting for my fractal groups, APN if I'm requesting for my nature groups.


Under Eclipse we can no longer do this!!


We have to browse the whole category of Photography - or Digital and can only narrow it down by using search for tags e.g. fractal



I have to say - browsing on DA is not one of my favourite past times, in particular the digital art category - plenty has been said about the porn on this site for people to understand wh

If you are unhappy about Eclipse, consider signing and sharing the journal below by :iconaartcritique:

There was a journal here which was a petition that thousands had signed to ask for intervention and to not force Eclipse on us all if we didn't want to but some how, magically, it's completely gone. :(

I know there are still changes to be made with Eclipse  - DA could have saved a lot of heart ache and anger by being upfront about things and maybe releasing it much later when most of the changes were made. At this stage, with many of the things people don't like, we have heard nothing about whether those things will change - yet DA has been putting out regular journals about the things they WILL/HAVE change(d), so, it doesn't look very promising.

A version many, including my self would have enjoyed. I was sooo looking forward to Eclipse but now, not really. Imo, it makes the green monster look good to me in comparison and I thought I was sick to death of it, lol.. www.deviantart.com/notificatio…


Also check out: DeviantART is changing....DeviantART was unique before because it allowed every artist to express they're own individuality. One of its selling points was the user interface which was differnt from other art sites and encouraged people to want to seek out other artists and view their content. 
My opinion about the site's most recent update (Eclipse).


1) It's impersonal. The creativity and the sense of individuality have been abolished. Every single account is now exactly the same. The removal of custom boxes, the basic HTML and CSS codes as well as the ability to show multiple featured drawings at once is a total crime against the artists who want to advertise their work through their profiles. 


2) The avatar icons and background pictures are too blurry. 


3)  There don't seem to be any cropping option during the selection of background images.



4) I am a BETA tester and I s

   The new ''custom'' boxes in EclipseI am so glad that the staff have listened to our feedback about needing more customization options in Eclipse, however the just released "custom" boxes leave a lot to be desired. Putting aside bugs in the system for the moment, let's just talk about basic functionality. Current custom boxes, no matter who made them or what they're meant to do, contain three basic elements:
A custom background.An inner box of some form. (Not always, but if they don't have it the good ones still make things readable by not having a complex background.)
Buttons of some form.
Eclipse custom boxes do not have an option for 2 or 3. They have some other great stuff like easily addable backgrounds, gifs, images, and image formatting. But without an inner box especially they can EASILY end up hard or impossible to read. As for buttons, they help with conversion (getting people to click things) and organization. Also they just look nice.
I threw together a quick (and dirty) mock-up of some relatively minor chang

lmao... life is so complicated and funny.... I'm a pale Caucasian of British Descent, raised most of my life in America and am an American, right? My Hubby is a darker complexion Caucasian of Turkish decent. Now... his family was born and raised Turkish while he was born and raised German, he's German through and through, lmao. People assume I'm the German one quite often till they try and speak to me and he has to interpret. And we get phone calls in Turkish, assuming because of our last name that we are Turkish.... Why you call me in Germany speaking Turkish...Why??? lmao!!!! If you did in German I could tell you to call back later, lol... but Turkish... nope... so then I just jump on into my American English... Yo, I don't speak Turkish... line goes dead... I about give the mail people here delivering packages a heart attack when they knock on the door expecting a Turkish person to be here... nope... White American here. :p lololololol!
What does the deviant stand for and actually mean in DA? Everyone assumes it is for deviant types of fetish, porn hub material, violent sex art but that is a gross misunderstanding and those that assume that couldn't be more wrong. "DeviantArt started as a site connected with people who took computer applications and modified them to their own tastes, or who "deviated" the applications from the original designs. As the site grew, members in general became known as "deviants" and submissions as "deviations". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeviantA…

"...it was Matt Stephens whose major contribution to DeviantArt was the suggestion to take the concept further than skinning and more toward an "art community" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeviantA…


Differences between porn and art:

"When trying to differentiate the two, the first thing to think about is context. With this idea of context, it’s important to approach each artwork like you would any other, and to question the wider meaning of the piece. Erotic art focuses on suggestion to communicate meaning, encouraging the viewer to invent the remainder of the story. If you are unable to establish a concept and can conclude that the purpose of the piece is solely for the pleasure of the viewer, it’s probably porn." www.artfinder.com/blog/post/ar…

"Admittedly, the erotic might end up having the same effect. Still, the ideal behind erotica is to transcend its literally provocative subject--to add a third dimension, if you will. In aspiring to celebrate the varieties of sexual bliss, and the universal desire for carnal union (which, deep within, just might carry hints of the divine), the eroticist seeks to portray a vision of both human pulchritude and the potential ecstasy that humans--through sexually joining--can share. One that won't grow old, or become stale over time (as pornographic images generally do).

Also, with pornography, it's basically "sex for sale." Artists pursue eroticism, I think, as they pursue beauty. It may sell, but if their goal is genuinely to transmit what they apprehend as almost ethereal in its beguiling sensuality (i.e., is fine art rather than commercial art), then the work's 's monetary value must remain a secondary consideration to them. Pornographers, on the other hand, are far less motivated by the desire to faithfully represent what they may (or may not) regard as beautiful or aesthetic. Rather, their undertaking is contrived to "produce" what they believe will turn the largest possible profit.

Besides pornography's being principally a money-making venture, the very word pornography (or better, porn) almost invariably connotes a certain exploitation--at times degradation or desecration-- of human sexuality. Many writers (particularly feminists) have rightfully complained that pornography, by objectifying women, reduces them to sex objects whose core value is to satisfy a man's libidinous needs." www.psychologytoday.com/us/blo…





I think I may have a roll at a few works with dragons ...  a muse I have... hmm.... *crosses fingers* Yoda-emote {Star Wars} 
It is so hard to search for things here without getting stressed out and utterly sick to my stomach just trying to look for art or stocks... and the filter has to allow all because then otherwise you miss out on some great works.... The gore, sexual fetishes and violence to women, the inflation, the kinks... I love this place but just right now, as usual when you have to randomly search... feel so sick... :dizzy: revamp :projectilevomit:  I get nightmares at times from the crap I see here. I can't imagine what it does to the minds of the young people here... you know many lie about their age... gods.... saw  so many works, women cut from the vaginas up or from the middle, down through them, their intestines coming out, squirting blood from their vaginas... woman impaled with arrows in her breasts and genital areas, tied up, taped up, violated... wtf is wrong with people? Seriously. This shit make Dante's Inferno look like a cake walk.
