Wow another year...

Wow another year...

I mean....15 years on DeviantArt. It's nuts......to think of being on a website that long. Or that a website kept it together for so long and still strong. I am thankful for having the opportunity to be here, and to see you all goin for it with your heart. Thanks dA!

wearable art + more

wearable art + more

there is something about wearing around art like this, it makes you a show stopper, it makes you find yourself something worthy, so seeing the difference that can make, that new world awaits. I love how black milk puts it, strangers will touch you. but their wordswill, their stories,their lives. These leggings seem to bring that out moreso in mine, to me, anyway. http://www.society6.com/organikmechanic there are also all sorts of other printed goodies!

You're bound to see pieces disappear again.....into the aeons and beyond I guess. The equivalent of seeing dirty pics of yourself for all to see, the art I did sometimes was just......whose sense of morality did I have back then......hows mine now, who's now that I felt such a sense of shame that it happened. anyways, sorry if you'll miss that art from my gallery, it doesn't show who I am....at all. Over the air, we must remember that outward in life we dress a certain way, we are ourselves. But online....that art could be us. I am female...how else could I draw that curve if but it being on me too? It made me some special kind of porno/bu

thanks dA!

thanks dA!

you can only write these long ones so many times about the climb here, but retouching again on this "popularity" or pageview thing, or the desperation for these things, or what comes from them. you have to be patient, sometimes.  When I got started in comics it was because of dA, those I knew here, and a great number of things still comes to be from this place, its an incredible thing they have here, and I hope it never goes! today is my 14th anniversary here at dA, so thank you guys for following and I hope to see you for times to come! :star: follow my patreon over at http://www.patreon.com/neiruffino :star:

Can I ask your Expertise?

Can I ask your Expertise?

im looking to find a way to get video files to my patrons, a large format file transfer service, a website to use. I'll be using it as a means to capture my paintings' progresses so every patron has a fast-forwardable video of the entire progress of a piece, start to finish. There are things that are going to be available here as well, but I'm guessing I may need some editing software to chop the videos up. Any recommendations on something to use for all of this? If you have any ideas, let me know! I'm really trying to start producing more content. The patrons get all kinds of stuff for $5 a month, but I'm also going to be making packages a

Taking Commissions! :)

Taking Commissions! :)

Hey everyone, I've currently had some large unexpected bills to pay so in order to catch up I am going to be doing commissions for anyone who wants one. (I am currently working on commissions that I already owe some of you so that I'm all caught up there, and I will be shipping them to you next week.) So if you want to help me by ordering one I will be working hard on them everyday. Because of the situation these commissions will have top priority and I will work on it as soo...n as its ordered. I am also offering show prices on the commissions (which is about 25% less than what I charge working from home) so if any of you have not been a
