has anyone created an artist CV? 

23 deviants said what the fu. . . .dge is a CV
16 deviants said no
5 deviants said yes (halp meee)


I don't know if it matters, but I thought I'd update again on myself etc.

The other day at work, someone donated a book related to the show "Cash Cab", which was a favorite show of my dad's.  It was hard to look at and remember about so that day was not happy.  I think I'm still in the denial phase of grief and I wish I could move on from denial to depression like should have happened by now.

My grandmother has also died, possibly from heartbreak that her son died.  She had been in the hospital for a concussion so I was surprised to hear she'd passed away.  And sad :(.  I didn't know her as well but the grief was still real.  I'm still in denial of that death too ><.

I still work at Goodwill in the backroom, mostly sorting books now because I suck at sorting clothing :rofl:.  It's harder than you would think.  I don't get a lot of hours but it makes sense considering how stressed out I would get with a lot of hours.  I'm lucky Goodwill makes a point to hire disabled people. 

Uhhh, my older dog has something like kidney failure but the vet hopes a new diet just for kidney health will help him out.  The other doggie is just fat :P.  We need to walk him more now that it's occasionally getting warmer out. 

As you can see from the photos I posted recently, the cats are fine :P

Anyway, it felt good to type this out so.  You don't have to read it all.  I should have said that in the beginning but oh well :meow:

Okay, after the polls and such I did to gauge interest in livestreaming, it seems most people want it :P.  So I just need to empty my brain of all the conflicting questions and worries about it so I can organize what really needs to happen /fail.

People wanted to see livestreams for both photomanipulations and paintings; does anyone have a preference that they would want me to start with?  It would be my first livestream ever and I'm sort of like ahh but it could be fun.

I also need to figure out the livestreaming function on YouTube, which I feel will be really useful but I'm afraid to try it :rofl:

Also, does my youtube link work or just lead in circles? :…

Does anyone have any examples of really great livestreams I can watch to sort of see what to include or not include in mine so they don't suck too hard? :)

Thank you everyone who has put in their two cents so far, I really appreciate it :) :hug: :heart:

This time it's an older work (I miscalculated for an exhibition and it was bad financially):

I've been drawn into your magnet tar-pit trap by Andaelentari
I'll use the same process as on the other one; I'm not sure how many more I can do after this one for awhile but I want someone to enjoy these and not just have them sitting in my closet :rofl:

"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?" Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?" Dead Poets Society

About stockGreetings!
A few of you have been really worried lately about using stock from here because of the change in their ownership. Basically, you were concerned that their license says that you cannot redistribute their stock in whole or in part, by itself or combined with other elements, without the written approval of the original photographer.
As we all know by now, creating a photomanipulation is considered "making a derivative image." And we know we can't make premade backgrounds without permission from the photographers, as doing so is redistributing their work.
I advised a couple of you to check with the Help Desk and to find out the whole truth before making rash decisions about your group that could potentially make everyone panic.
Using my own personal account, I wrote to to find out what the story was. Here's what I said:
I was just wondering whether creating phot
Precut Stock Providers who Name their SourcesEven if most of the precut stock providers are sincere, and only use their own resources... they don't often tell it! :( So, it is very hard to know who makes abusive precut stock pictures or not.
I would like to encourage every stock provider to name his sources (even if they are his own).
You'll find here the precut stock providers I found who always name their sources, as you can see they are not very numerous. I hope that every photomapulators will find it useful and that many other precut stock providers will join the move. :D
I'm sad to see that many of the best precut stock providers I know and who offer they own stock didn't take the time to TELL IT! So, alas, they will not be selected in this list. I hope they'll do in the future and the list will grow.
Alphabetic order.

Basic HTML Formatting GuideIntroduction
HTML is a markup language used to create web pages. It primarily consists of content placed between named tags that define the layout or style of that content.
Is it just me or does trying to explain HTML and what it does always seem to make it sound more complicated than it actually is? Very simply, HTML is the building blocks of the web. With it you can create a web page right from the foundations of the layout to the finishing touches of style. Don't get me wrong, it is a fairly involved topic but it really is quite simple to pick up the basics.
What I'll be helping you with here is the formatting aspect of HTML. These are the things that add colour to your page and make your font fancy.
Below you will find a number of examples of HTML formatting that you can use to style your own web pages, dA profiles and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also writ
Not legitimate stock tips /how to reportMany people ask me what this term means ¨not legitimate stock¨

and always ask me how I know? how to identify?. so I decide to post a journal with many tip,

first...the things written here in this journal, I did a long search. and I'm doing this to help and inform people about this subject.
and first I'll tell because I started getting interested in this subject. three things happened that made me pay attention in this detail.
1 - a long time ago, I used the stock from pixabay in some premades. and unfortunately I did not know that this site is not reliable, so I was denounced and I had all my contents posted in stock removed.
2 - I used a premade, but the person who did this premade used a stock that was not allowed to be used, and this premade was denounced and people who used also have been denounced and had my manipulation was moved to scrap for infringed copyright.
3 - I used a PNG, and after…
