This is going to be more of a compliment than a criticism. I'll start with the easy part: Olga is fantastically beautiful (I know . . ....

Oh, this is certainly a big improvement. The first thing I noticed was more detail due to fewer blown-out highlights (I'm not sure how ...

Why I'll HAVE to leave, though I don't want to

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 11, 2019, 5:53 PM

I'll keep it simple.

#1, 2, 3 ,4 and 5:  The endless fucking scrolling.  Congrats, guys!  You just created Instagram!
Look, I get that some people like that.  But I watch enough people that I get around 350-400 deviations in my feed (without the groups).  The only way I'm able to keep up at all is by dividing it into about 100 in the morning, and 150 in the evening.  That still keeps me falling behind, and I have to catch up with everything else on the weekends.  I can't do that unless I can see 24 at a time, and then delete the 24 thumbnails at once.  If I have to endlessly scroll, I'll never be able to get back to where I left off.

#6  the large icons.  This actually looks cool in people's galleries.
But I defer to #s 1-5.  If we're endlessly scrolling, it's going to crash people's systems.

#7  Do we really need all of the extra steps to add things to our favorites?
That will also slow me down.

#8  What the fuck did you do to the browsing?
Why did we spend all that time tagging images if we can't - you know - BROWSE for them?

#9  You simply pissed me off too much to continue trying to complete this top 10 list.

I do . . . stuff. I like to create things. I used to draw, but now I mainly do photography. I photograph any subject that catches my fancy. Lately, I've been focused on fine art nudes. But that's not all I do with a camera. I'd actually like to make a living with a camera, but we'll see how it goes. I might be a sculptor, tomorrow, for all I know.

If you're not familiar with me (which I suspect is the case if you're reading this), I absolutely LOATHE the DeviantArt watermark. On principle, I don't fave or comment on any deviation that uses it. It's the only way I know how to protest against it.

BIG F-ING NOO!! on Eclipse.

I'll never be able to get through my feed if that's the setup.  This site will become pointless for me.
On the question of using my photography as a reference:

The only reason I don't just offer it as stock is simply because I want to know how it's going to be used.  I'm actually pretty generous.  I just want people to ask so I know it's not going to be used in an offensive way, or make it look like I'm endorsing an ideology I don't agree with.

For most artists I know, that's not going to be an issue.

Go ahead and ask.
You know what?  I'm also throwing this one back into the main gallery.  Not because it's a good shot (maybe I can edit it), but because I'm pissed that the location doesn't exist, anymore.

Nude Hiking Day by phydeau
Every once in a while, I'll check my scraps (I don't hide them - I just take them out of my main gallery), and sometimes I find something that I should have left in place.  I just found two of them:
