Things have gotten pretty hectic my way. So please excuse for not answering, etc.
Hope things are going better for you.
Some thoughts on DA's 11th anniversayI feel nothing. Definitely not joy.
I enjoy the friends I have met here. I like hearing the wonderful stories people tell of the DA community coming together for them in crisis,etc.
The DD's and prizes people have received.
Yet for all the talk of how DA loves you (from CEO to staff with some exceptions) it seems like empty words to me.
So excuse me if I don't jump up and down with joy.

$spyed answered my question and iScribbleHello:
Hope your on your way to having a good weekend and if not hope it gets better.
In my last journal I ranted on why doesn't DA have a way to publish books like Blurb = http://www.blurb.com/
I got an answer:
On March 14, 2011, deviants from around the world participated in a special featured chat with deviantART's CEO (aka) Angelo Sotira ($spyed)
You can read the full transcript of what else people asked here = http://news.deviantart.com/article/146653/
"*Rickbw1: Hello Angelo. Will DA be adding in the shops a way to create books for art collections, literature, etc like Blurb, and if so when? And if not why?
$spyed: We'd likely partner with a company like Blurb, they're amazing, but first we need to change the submission process to add some procedures for how we integrate with such companies. That is stuff we're looking at and developing against right now, so, absolutely! "
See what happens.

The Hunt For Gollum - LOTR PrequelThere's a decent fan made movie The Hunt For Gollum - LOTR Prequel = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H09xnhlCQU
"dramatising Aragorn & Gandalf's long search for Gollum. This 40 minute film, made by fans for fans is based on the appendices of LOTR and was painstakingly shot on a low budget as a homage to Peter Jackson's trilogy and the writing of J.R.R. Tolkien.

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

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
The Illuminated World ContestStock & Resources
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

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)-
In 2007, when I first started paying regular attention to the DD page on this site, I quickly realized that the general photography galleries were being watched over by three ladies with an insane amount of talent in their medium but widely disparate styles and viewpoints - and they were all awesome. Staged, Sandra Keplinger, was this passionate German high-style lady with an eye for cinematographic compositions and journalistic attacks; hellfirediva, Tina The Rabbit Whisperer, was the Macro Queen who loved the colourful and the spunky; and then there was equivoque, Elinor Scott-Sutter, who seemed to be forever on the hunt for the most artistic executions possible. Over the years since then I had the chance to get to know each of them personally, and they all influenced my photography more than I'd ever like to admit. Sandra became an idol to me, and to date she's still one of my favourite photographers in the real world; Tina became a good personal friend, then
