R.I.P. old DA. Eclipse sucks.
This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
...has never seen a single snake charmer in her life.
Just call me Rita or my username.
All you'll ever need to know about me....
Computer Scientist and Artist. Dabbler of various things. My interests are broad and many, like the changes of the seasons. Currently focusing on: Generative Art and Creative Coding, Calligraphy, Space Art
I've played around with Photoshop when I was much younger though, way back in high school. (Ah, those days of artistic discovery) Digital art is like more of a hobby to me. Photoshop versions used: PS7, CS2 and now CS6. Pencil shading and dry pastels on paper are my most preferred media when it comes to traditional art. I'm always open to learning new art styles and other techniques...if I only had the time!
I've been lurking around DA since 2006 until I finally decided to make an account in 2014, I wasn't really active until 2015. I have watched this place grow into what it is today. The reason I learned PS was because of all the resources and tutorials that I found here. DA was instrumental in bringing out my creative side.
Photography is also something I love. To capture nature in all its beauty and to have a moment frozen in time!
Interests & Random Stuff
Music is my BIGGEST inspiration. It's also something I'm quite passionate about. You'll find me air-drumming to my favourite songs all the time. Favourite bands: Karnivool <3 , SubRosa, TesseracT, Rishloo, Katatonia, Cult Of Luna, Tool, God Is An Astronaut, Opeth, Skyharbor, Animals As Leaders, Sigur Ros, Ludovico Einaudi, Uneven Structure, Ne Obliviscaris, Monuments, Nine Inch Nails, Kylesa, Isis, Rosetta, How To Destroy Angels, Ulver, and many more.
Science Fiction and Futurism comes in a close second. I'm also inspired by the mysteries of this journey called life.
Gaming takes my mind off the trivial things of this world. Favorite games of all time: Skyrim (4ever!), Diablo II, UT2004, Age of Empires, Heroes of Dragon Age, Contra

I know these languages: Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, Marathi and ^Feel free to speak to me in any language. (though the last one doesn't really qualify as one xD)
Technology, Food (experimenting in the kitchen), Coffee, Closet Songwriter, Concerts, Learning something new everyday, Languages, Socio-economic issues, Mythology, Philosophy, Metaphysics and other random things.
You will see a bit of everything on my profile. I love experimenting with new & different mediums of artistic expression, trying out new things all the time to satisfy my inner hunger for something I've never done or experienced before. It is the fiber of who I am. If I had to make an individual DA account for everything I want to try, I'd be banned! So you will find all my work in this one tiny space on the internet. Feel free to drop by and have a chat, I promise I don't bite.
All my photography, photomanipulation & traditional media artworks are my own work. You may not use, edit, upload, redistribute, publish or claim as your own in any way. That's called stealing, and stealing is a crime.
Info: All my non-digital/traditional artworks are photos, taken with a point & shoot camera as I don't have a scanner. Sometimes the picture quality is compromised due to the lighting and angle of the photo, which may result in colours appearing slightly different from the original.
Icon is from artwork I made when I was 14. Profile background images from Unsplash. Spot the space cat.

PERSONAL FEATURE SERIES
A collection of links to my feature series. It's currently on hold and might be resumed someday.
I apologize for the lack of activity, I haven't been myself lately. A lot of stuff is happening IRL right now. Just trying to keep afloat.
Also, that must be a record number of notifications. My average is about 5k, when sorted and organized. I will get to the bottom of it, eventually. I want to thank every single one of you who faved, commented, gave a llama, watched me or supported me in any way in the past two weeks. It means a lot to me, to consistently have your support even though I may or might not have done the same. You are wonderful people. You guys make this place awesome!
| NOT A HIATUS | I will not be here for the next 4-5 days. I'll be logging in once or twice a week from now on. It has become physically impossible for me to catch up with everything and maintain a study/work/life/DA balance and the stress levels are so high that I'm not even myself anymore. I'm taking some time off. I would love to get back to my usual mojo once this phase is over. I will be putting some submissions on schedule, it took me a while to figure that out. The second journal was published a little earlier than intended. Group duties will remain as usual, those responsibilities don't change though my personal activity might reduce a bit. If you comment during this phase, it will take some time before I can reply, but I will eventually get back to you. (unless your message/comment gets lost in the notifications or gets accidentally deleted, in that case I apologize, I'm super-forgetful!) I gotta have to-do lists for every single thing. And most importantly...
I want to thank everyone who has watched me, commented, faved my work, given me a llama or supported me over the past few weeks, it means a lot to me more than you ever know. Please know that I always appreciate it! You are awesome!
I've had a really bad bout of flu for the past week, sincerest apologies for my lack of activity. My second bout in 3 months. I'm still running a high fever and I was unable to do anything except crawl out of bed for basic stuff like eating or taking meds. Nothing like some hot soups to make me feel better. I'm craving for so many things I'm not supposed to eat right now. Like ice-cream or a good shot of caffeine into my bloodstream. Must. resist. the. urge. :bademoticon:
I wanna say thank you to everyone who has interacted with me in some way for the past week, either by faving my work, comments or llamas. I appreciate your support very much!
I will catch up with everything once I get a little better. Watch out for super lame polls, new artwork and other stuff.
My UPS died earlier this week after being quite faithful to me for the past few years. Finally got my UPS fixed today, now I'm back on the PC. (Thank goodness for sta.sh and the schedule feature) Having never used the mobile site before, it was an interesting and challenging experience. What do you think of the DA experience on the mobile? (UI and usability vs. the desktop version)
Support me if you like what I do! Points would go towards supporting fellow deviants and to renew core membership. Points would be used as contest prizes for the monthly themed contests in my photography group. I'd be forever grateful if you do contribute! The Captain @ PhotographersDelight
Sometimes my life gets in the way and I end up being quite busy IRL, so please forgive me if I take a while before I can get back to you. Please do not take it to heart if I do not personally thank you for faving my work, we all know that sometimes it can way too time-consuming to get through every notification. That does not mean I take it for granted. When you fave my work or give me a llama, I will look at your gallery and fave or comment on your work in return, not just as a form of gratitude but as form of supporting a fellow artist. In extreme cases, some comments might get truly lost in my notifications, and I end up missing some of them. If that happens, I sincerely apologize for I didn't not mean to ignore you or be rude in any way. I try my best to reply every time. I will always appreciate your support. Rest assured, I do read every single comment (unless it doesn't show up in my notification center) and I do appreciate every single positive interaction you have made with me so far.
Please don't watch me just to unwatch. That's kinda rude. Any kind of hate, spam or promotions on my profile will be hidden. Persistent trolls will be blocked.
Thank you for visiting my little corner of dA. I appreciate every llama, favourite, comment and watch!
If you just happened to land on my page, you're awesome! WELCOME!
