Bad me, I haven't been deviant at all for years. Except for writing. And a few Christmas cards. And Deviant friends have disappeared, or even worse, banned. They even do not post anymore, or have removed their deviants. Sad.
cardboard dreamsmoved and feeling terrible. i don't know if it's allergies (dusty as hell here), but everything is still in boxes because there is no shelfspace here. maybe i'll just live in boxes
Wash FirstBeen doodling with watercolors, a set I've had for about twenty years. (Really doesn't seem like they're that old). Only vermillion is good; the rest are dried up like crusty tomatoes.
Not Orange County ChoppersFinished my first graphics for a t-shirt, and need to iron them today. Also, need to get busy with changing cgi addresses, and remodeling the site. That's always fun/bummer.
Pillow On My MindI've not slept well. So tired. Listless really. At least I bought some watercolor paper.
Crooked Finger, Iite!Couldn't do a damn thing this weekend, because I was trying to collect all of my ramblings, put them into folders, and finally be organized. And today, the laundry. Ugh! And now my finger is burnt out because of all the catching up I had to do (eMail, journals, etc., etc., etc.)
Preferably, I can get down to brass tacks tonight after a rest.
Uh-oh, Almost Another YearNow that I've got one thing out of the way (another spur of the moment thing), I feel empowered.

uaggh! I don't even know how to write journals anymore D: I hope everyone is
about deviantart eclipse.(added stuff)personally, i don't like the new layout-at all. i just needed to get this off my chest.
deviantart is the last website that's good for art, the whole reason why i buy core and remain active here is because i can fully express myself with custom boxes and stuff. profile customization is one of the best things about it, now it's gonna be "sleek" and "modern" like every other website-
although i do see a lot of people who are pleased with the layout, which makes me hope that they'll at least make the old version available for those who prefer it.
if you're like me and you're extremely upset about this change, the best way to reach the staff is through this survey:
it seems like almost everybody commenting on the beta test journal has got the same idea that i do- but unfortunately i dont know if the staff is going to pay attention to the comments on here so i urge you to please consider fill

Commissions/trades!Hey guys, I just wanted to update that I am working on official prices for my commissions and such cuz I get a lot of notes about it, and i've been meaning to make a price sheet for ages now!? So know that, that is coming soon.
I always want to say that my commissions are currently closed, but will be opened again so don't worry about that!
As for trades I get a lot of people asking about trades/commissions, and all I can say about that is-- I've got a lot on my plate and after the commissions/trades I currently have my main priority needs to be my show. and I wanna work on my show, but I also sometimes have a hard time saying no to people cuz I don't want to upset anyone. But at the same time I'm learning it's healthy to say no. SOoooo, no they aren't open right now. Unless I open small batches if an emergency happened or something, but for right now it's all closed for a bit. But I will finish stuff I owe now.
Anyway, i'm just so honored by all the kind words and seeing how car
Do you know what fires your imaginationEverybody has an imagination. Some of us have learned to use ours better than others. People say they aren't creative, but everybody is creative, because everybody has an imagination.
Imagination needs to be fed, but not necessarily in the form your medium. Because that is akin to cannibalism to me.
Do you know what fires your imagination?
-- Justin Maller ekud
spyed: Why do creative people need a community?
ekud: Everybody needs a community, it's a deviation from the norm to have creativity be a defining characteristic of your person. A central tenant of your life. However you want to say it. So to find a group of people that share that, and have that affinity, is a basic human need. To have affinity with others.
spyed: Does having access to a community of like-minded people help the creative process in your view?
ekud: Sharing your affinity with others is what's going to feed that basic need that you're not necessarily going to be able to find within arms
Art Review 7Well the fortnite art journal was a bust so I'm just going to do a more general browsing deviantart instead.
I would like yall to send me art from your own galleries.
If you want me and/or others to (harshly) review, critique, poke fun at or show your art on a video/livestream you can put your old or recent art below. Keep in mind not everyone will be featured. Username will likely be shown for credit. Thank.
(If you wanna repost art that you posted on past journals you can also do that)
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
