I don't write a lot of journals, and I won't start now. I'll probably leave this one up for a while, and if you do end up reading this, I hope these thoughts can inspire a new habit.

When you like a piece of art, any art - do yourself and the artist a favour, and say what you like about it, spark conversation, not just a word here and there. What you say is up to you, whether it's something about the picture that personally connects to you, why you think the colors or composition works well, even criticism is fine.

Most importantly, let the artist know how much they inspired you. Because for any artist, knowing they have created something that has affected someone else in a meaningful way is priceless. For any artist.

That's what builds community, not likes and favorites.


While I think Deviant Art has the ability to be awesome, sometimes it can be very hard to keep track of everything -

I HIGHLY suggest this add-on for Chrome

Helps me be quick on the dot for replies and activity happening on DA.

HELLO hi hi.

I wanted to stop by and thank you for the watch- because it really means a lot! (And no one has commented on your page since April Fools??? what's the deal with that, brah?)

Your journal, though a month dated, is very /very/ true. I really value the every moment someone starts a comment conversation with me- though more often than not, /I'm/ the one doing the initiating...which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
It usually starts when I comment on a deviantart page to thank for watches/faves/etc. 7 (well, maybe 6) times out of 10 the deviant starts a conversation back, usually because they were too shy or intimidated to comment on the work itself.

Late night ramble- dunno- your journal sorta sparked something. I'm glad someone else likes conversation~

Ayyyyyyyye!!! I had a couple of weeks where no matter who had come and visited, liked or interacted with my page, I would then go to their page, and try to say something positive or reinforcing about their work, sometimes even a small critique This had huge success - as it would get people working at their art even more.

But, unfortunately that was around when I got hit with the NDA fro a project that took up most of my time. I felt like I could paint something for me, and all the art I had been doing had been for something I couldn't show a soul. I'm off that project, and on to a few others I really enjoy! Plus no NDA to be heard of.

So, I guess I'm going to try to pick up old habits. Speak to people, get involved again. Wesley is a good motivator and is great (friendly)competition, but I kinda want to expand that. To a full community of dedicated artists like yourself! Whatya say? Doodle off? ;D

I would have doodled-off, but FINALS FAST APPROACHED and then proceeded to swallow me whole. 

Even now, I'm not sure I trust myself to hold to a strict doodle schedule. WHOOPS. That being said, I still try to ring myself in the artist community! 8D

ALSO- It's nice to meet'cha!
