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.

Will you be my friend?The funny thing about people knowing you, is that many people want to be your friend.
"Will you be my friend?" is one those questions I get the most.
It's also one the questions I have to answer with a negative answer the most, because I don't like lying to people.
Like I've told in some of my earlier journals, my life didn't overflow with friendship nor popularity when I was younger. It was quite the contrary. I wasn't anything near popular, to the point that most people didn't even want to have anything to do with me. As the kid that got bullied, the few that dared to get close to me, more or less put their social status in the group at stake by even talking to me. And as a result, I guess I valued their friendship a lot. After all; I knew what they risked.
Coming from that sort of situation, friendship has always been a very important but at the same time mysterious matter to me. Something not be
Art Book pre-orders + lottery winner announcement!About the point lottery:
And the winner of the 300 points is :iconbokunoai:
To join the lottery all you have to do is +fav this journal. In 48 hours i wil use a randomizer to randomly pick a number from 1 to how many favs this journal got and the deviant who's name corresponds to that number will win 300 points
About the Art Book:
Aaaaaaaand i am officially announcing that i opened pre-orders for my art book
The pre-order stage serves also as an order stage, it's from August 20 2014 to September 20 2014, and it's the only time you can buy my art book. It won't be available in any online store. I will keep 30-50 books to sell at Romanian conventions which are Nijikon, Comic Con and Otaku festival. So if you're romanian or intend to go to these convention then that's the only other time you can buy my art book
Actually this is where the idea to make an art book came from in the first place

Does talent exist?I know many people have different opinions about this. And here's what i think of it and why. I'll just answer the journal question up front, I think talent does not exist. And here's why:
Let's start with he question, what is talent? It's this magical thing that makes some people learn faster and develop faster than others in different fields. Let's take art for example, there are 2 different artists, both start at the same time to learn a concept and one learns faster than the other. But few people have stopped to ask themselves why that is? Is it talent, or is it something else?
Let me tell you a story about a guy who started an experiment to see if talent exists. He posted an add where he stated he's looking for a wife that will agree to marry him and let him test their children in this experiment. And they made 3 girls. The guy taught them all how to lay chess from a very early age, and lo and behold all of them became grandmasters in chess. This story is real, the guy is

5 ways to be more positiveDear, deviantart fellow artists
How to reach the happiness, how to have and maintain the positivity in our creative lives?
It's not an easy thing to stay positive all time. Trust me, I know... so here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Get away from negative people
Stay away from those who don't believe in you, who only show up in your lifes when they need something. As mentioned in the latest journal by DamaiMikaz - some people are just pretending to be your friends in order to use you or your skills (don't let them). Be aware of those who are trustworthy and it's said that "person will become the average of their five closest friends".. so be cautious and surround yourself with like-minded people, ones who support an
