#175: Art Theft. (EDIT)Read this:
Ok, I don't really know what these art thieves have on their mind. Shit? Pink elephants? Ponies? I can't say.
Really, I feel mortified. I can't even imagine to pass off somebody's art for mine, and I can't stand there's such kind of people who can do this so easily. Let alone SELLING SOMEBODY ELSE'S ART AS PRINT.
These people are such losers. Get a life, please.
If you please spread the word, I'll be very happy.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
You can go to his Facebook Page (HIS PAGE) and leave a critique (with one star and a little comment on how he steals pretty much everything he sees) and/or report the page (clicking on the gear below the cover photo and selecting "Report"), choosing "Other/Abusive Content".
Thank you for your support!
#174: Tweaking.Sooooo...Would you take my last deviation (Aquamarine) and tweak it to use post_depth instead of the native Depth Blur (I'm talking about Apophysis), with the risk of messing the flame up?
My dear *BoxTail was like:
I gave him the params, he tried and tried until he got a result:
Now you can go like this, because you did an awesome job!!!
Go show *BoxTail some love!!!
#173: Guess who's back?No, not me and not my fractals.
I may have submitted a fractal somewhere outside deviantART...But I haven't told you anything.
*dark-beam seems to be back! Go show him some love!
#172: Hiatus.dArama alert: if you don't want to be involved or something, ignore this journal.
I've been on deviantART since 2007, but become an active deviant on January 2012, when I started making fractals. (let's say it's a year and a half since I've really joined dA)
Since then, I gained more than 3000 watchers and reached the goal of 100,000 pageviews.
Also, some of my fractals have become the most popular of all time. I'm not here to brag about myself, but if I received such a reception I must worth something.
One of the advices I always try to give to newbies is to make fractals primarly for oneself and not for the others. We should do something that makes us happy and proud of ourselves.
It's something I'd like to do as well, but just can't. I've reached a point where I really care too much of what people think. And as I'm a really insecure person, not so positive comments or thoughts, no matter how many, just kill me. (even though I receive a lot of good comment

How To Photograph Your Paintings
How To Photograph Your Paintings
In this article I want to discuss a common problem that some traditional artists have. That's photographing your paintings. Whether it be for selling prints or just getting your art noticed online the importance of having paintings look great is key. If your fortunate enough to have a scanner for smaller pieces then that's great! But if your working on large canvases or paper then you can run into issues. The most common problem artists have are Glare, Blur and Color. All of which will be discussed in this article.
Anyone who has worked with acrylics and oils knows what a problem this can be when your trying to take a picture of a painting. This is not as much a issues for a artist working with watercolors
Giveaways NEED to STOP!Giveaways on deviantART need to stop! They're having a number of detrimental effects on the community at large. Within this article, I aim to discuss this problem, as well as provide alternatives for giveaways. I'll begin by outlining what a giveaway is, both in the real world and on deviantART; explain why giveaways are simply not for deviantART; illustrate my points with real-world examples; and then go into detail on what exactly the aforementioned detrimental effects are. Additionally, I will counteract a number of excuses people use for holding and entering giveaways; as well as offer alternatives to giveaways for both parties.
I know the article is quite long, but this is an issue which myself and a growing number of other community members feel to be important. But I promise, it doesn't actually take too long to read once you get going!
If you agree with my points in this article, or even simply find the debate interesting, I would appreciate

#133: Help the 100 Premium Memberships Project!Please, it will take only few minutes!
Maybe many of you don't know, but `focusandframe is gathering 63,600 points to donate 100 Premium Memberships on Christmas (like a dA Santa or something).
He needs almost 4000 points to reach his goal. You can make a donation, but if you have no points, he had another idea.
I can't tell you what is all about, but if you want to get involved, you should send him a note.
A "How can I help you with your project?" should be fine! He'll explain everything!
Really, if you regularly join dA, you can help him doing very few things. Please, help `focusandframe to reach his goal and make someone's Christmas day!
Thank you for your attention and have a nice day!
Crown of ThornsShe wakes up with red staining her pillow
and the taste of blood like iron in her mouth
It stains her teeth and leaks from her lips, and as she
rinses her mouth out, she can’t help thinking that
it’s better than dirt and ashes
it feels like she’s wearing a noose
of broken promises and shattered glass
that tightens around her throat with every day that passes
She nails a smile to her face
and doesn't let herself think the word dying
Keep in Touch!
