my deviantart story :D
My first time on deviantart was 7 long years ago, on my first account, silentsasuke (https://www.deviantart.com/silentsasuke) here is my first dA upload! :thumb37836144: I joined because I was playing on a site called gaiaonline and I saw people had included links to their deviantart accounts in their signatures in the forums, and it piqued my interest. Since I was beginning to draw art for people on there, I wanted to start a gallery too (aside from my photobucket account - I maxed out some albums with all my uploads lolololol) I was a mouse user during the whole time on that old account. I used programs like open canvas 3 and MSPaint, as well as my scanner for pen and pencil draw
Do's and Dont's of writing good Fanfiction
Alright, its confession time. From the age of eleven to thirteen, I read and wrote Harry Potter Fanfiction. I know, it's a shock, but remember that I was at that age! The writing was crappy; the reasons for writing base (all my friends will testify that Fanfiction gave birth to my severe crush on Sirius Black, which ended up with me writing a fic simply so I could include myself and my friends during the Marauder's schooldays…. Yeah… I know, Mary-Sues are not pretty) and the general storyline lacking in focus. Well, maybe it was the stress of the past few weeks, maybe it was the fact that now the original Potter series is over

I wanted to put together a feature because I haven't been on lately :(.  Sad, I know.  This is for all the work I've faved and probably haven't commented on, and work that I feel doesn't get enough attention :D.  

To start off, I wanted to feature tayfunes for his dedication to me!!! :D
twisted hearts by tayfunes

Alannah-Hawker is a wildlife photographer who enjoys capturing... well, uh... wildlife? on camera :giggle:.  She has been informed that wolves in Idaho and Montana are no longer under government protection like they were earlier this year.  If you wish to petition this action, you may go to www.thepetitionsite.com/takeac… and sign the petition :).

HeWhoWalksWithTigers is selling prints now!  If you would like wildlife photos on your wall, Kuba is selling prints!  He came in 3rd place for the Australia contest, and he won an $800 voucher.  He cannot use the voucher if he's not in Australia though!  So if you want to help him out, you can go and buy some prints from him.  His work is exceptional, and his dream will come true!

Here are some of Kuba's prints!

I believe "art" is up for interpretation. It is incorrect to say that a photographer is based on luck whereas an artist has to practice. In both cases, luck, instinct, and practice are all essential to an artwork. There are many traditional artists out there that thought they didn't think their idea to draw was extraordinary, but drew it anyway, and it ended up being a success. Couldn't that be considered luck as well? There are some photographers (mostly experimental or amateur photographers) that get lucky, but professional ones do everything on purpose.

To you, traditional art may be the best. Indeed, a lot of effort goes into traditional art; however, you must understand that traditional art is not the only "art." Different mediums of art also require effort, hard work, dedication, and practice. If you look at most photographers, there beginning pictures are not great, but as they develop and grow, just as a traditional artist, they begin to have techniques that make their work more pleasing to the eye. A lot of work goes into the set up of a picture, the shooting of the picture, and post-processing. It goes the same for painting, sculpting, and photo-manipulations, which I have also featured.

I think every artist should explore and experience other mediums of art because that is how one grows as a person and as an artist. To appreciate all art, whether you like it or not, and perhaps dabble in various forms is how one can develop respect for other artists' time and effort.

Basically, what I'm trying to say, is that it's difficult for someone to understand another form of art if they have not tried that medium. I suggest you possibly try taking a few artistic photos and see how they come out and keep trying to develop your skills. I see you are mainly a traditional artist, but if you ever need a small break or fresh air, a walk around the block with a camera may help :).
