This is it!Today was the last day of my term as a Chat & Forums and Architecture Photography Community Volunteer. It's crazy how fast time flew by! Yet I got so used to be part of the team, it feels very strange to leave it. I've worked with a bunch of warm and supporting people!
I'm deeply grateful to Moonbeam13 to have given me this opportunity to get involved with the community and try to improve the Architecture Photography gallery, as well as feature some stunning work, and keep the chats & forums safer and cleaner. It has been a great pleasure!
Now that this chapter of my dA history has ended, I hope new ones will start, either through fun projects, new friends, or general deviantFUN!
To new beginnings!

NEW! Architecture Photography 'Details'Dear deviants,
Some time ago I asked the community in this journal entry how you all felt about some changes to the Architecture Photography gallery. A lot of discussions have been led and, ultimately, it has been decided that a Photography > Architecture > Details could be a useful addition!
Today we're proud to announce that this sub-category is finally open!
So what goes under Architecture details?
Photographs of architectural details, close-ups, fragments, or façades that do not fully express neither an interior or an exterior of a building or structure.

Writing Effective DialogueWe've all struggled through figuring out how to write dialogue that not only gets the information out there, but also helps build characters or advance the plot. There are tons of books and blogs out there on the topic, too. But just reading about it doesn't do much good if we're not ready to try it out. Give it a go and see what other people think. But let's start with the basics.
What is Effective Dialogue?
Dialogue that's written well will reveal character traits, add to the tension and suspense, helps cut down on text walls of description and of course, advances your plot. One of the most important things to keep in mind when you're writing dialogue is that in fiction, your reader doesn't want to read all the mundane things we say on a regular basis. So if it's not moving the plot or adding to your character's personality, you should think about cutting it completely.
What do I mean by reveals character traits?
Want more commissions?This journal is for artists who want to get more commissions, or want to open commissions and never had so they don't know how best to present their art, or even for those artists who took commissions before but would appreciate some more tips
There are a few pretty important things to consider before publicly announcing you're opening commissions:
1. payment method. The deviantart commission widget takes 20% of your profit, but then again more deviants have points so you're likely to get 20% more customers like that. But don't forget there are people who have paypal and don't feel like dealing with points so if you decide to open commissions through deviantart, don't let that be the ONLY payment method.
Paypal is the most common payment method used online and i strongly recommend it. Make a paypal account, connect it to a card and you're ready. But don't forget paypal has a limit of $3000 per year withdrawal. So if you're serious about drawing art for a living and you
Why I still draw mangaYou know what's the funny thing about getting older and (apparently) more serious with art? People ask you why you don't 'move on' with it.
Over the last few years, as my interest in art in general grew and I attended more traditional art workshops, the question that was most asked to me was:
"Why don't you move on from that manga style of yours?"
Implying that manga was a childish thing to draw, and that when I wanted to go anywhere more serious with my art, I would better move on to a more mature and realistic style.
Now, as some as you know I have close to no intention to go professional. It would take the fun out of drawing, in my opinion. But it honestly bothers me people see manga in such a negative light nowadays, especially considering we live in an era in which manga artists like yuumei, sakimichan or GENZOMAN (and many others) have build solid careers on their manga drawing skills,

Inspiration: youtube artists (part 1)Dear, deviantart fellow artists
Hi - so I'm starting new series of journals with useful resources - mainly because I'm running out of topics to write about and I just like some diversity. (I'll continue to post general art/motivational journals too every now and then)
Here are some of my favorite youtube artists, that inspire me and I hope that these resources might be helpful for you too.
'Level up!' is an idea of two Polish artists - Wojtek Fus ( WojciechFus ) and Darek Zabrocki ( daRoz ), who want to teach and learn from each other. Level Up has expanded a host team by amazing Jonas De Ro (JonasDeRo ) There are weekly, 2 to 3-hours long livestreams with critiques, overpaintings and Q&A's. It's so wonderful to watch them paint and talks about important tips on art and life as an artists. Also check out their
Bestest Friend ContestNote: Please mention DreamingAutumn if you have any questions and note her your entries. dA is being a jerk, and having issues, so I can't do much.
CONTEST IS NOW OPEN!
BESTEST FRIENDS ARE AWESOME.
In celebration of my bestest friend DreamingAutumn coming to visit me, we've decided to host a contest! The premise of this contest will be simple, write something to your best friend! It could be anything! Maybe you want to write them a letter telling them how much you care, or a write piece dedicated to them. Maybe you want to write about your favorite memory, your silliest moment, or that time you both laughed so hard your sides hurt because one of you did the Six Little Ducks Dance from Barney. ANYthing!
Want to donate something? Feature, points, pm, a print, something you made? Note either IrrevocableFate or DreamingAutumn.
World Suicide Prevention Day
World Suicide Prevention Day 2014
Hey guys, Kate here. I’m this year’s Disability and Mental Health Rep at my University so I wrote this article for our Students' Union blog and I just wanted to take a little time to share it here too and to tell you that today is World Suicide Prevention Day. The World Health Organisation considers suicide a global issue and suggests that part of its international plans to combat it include more awareness and understanding of the problem.1 A little bit of this article is specific to my University but most of it is sound advice that everyone should read and consider.
All very interesting, I hear you say, possibly sarcastically. So let’s get serious for a second. When you come to University, a lot of us get told to stay away from drink, drugs, promiscuous sex, darkly lit parts of the city, strangers… the list of perceived dangers is seemingly endless and people love to warn you about them… but s
Characters I Might Trade [OTA]These characters were very loved, but with my many new adopted characters, now don't use them as much as I used to, and I don't want to keep characters that I don't use, when they could benefit of new owners that would give them the care and love they deserve? <3
Characters I might trades, if I get offers I find interesting enough:
Choco Mint --- Maneki (Can be turned into a Nekoi) --- Wasabi
They all come with many extra art and icons.
Feel free to offer any of the following:
-Art (quality over quantity)-
-Closed species character(s)-
-[AB](maybe?) offer a Mantibab (lol I can dream)-

Of Snake Charmers and TreesThere are mathematicians
that calculate the gravitational
pull that tethers us to one another,
teasing sense out of the fabric
of Time and Space like
wizened snake charmers.
I thought them so horribly
unromantic, searching for
logic amidst wildflowers-
reasoning being reason enough
to put one foot in front
of the other each day.
True beauty lay printed
on petals and pages,
where I delved for pearls;
the patterns in the pathos
intriguing me into each
rising of the sun.
I do not remember when
it occurred to me that
without fractals there would
be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
