Just going to ramble probably.  Or not.  Depends on how much my brain wants to work at the moment.
You don't have to read it, I just want something other than a feature for my journal lol.

I'm probably not going to leave deviantart because of the new layout, but I am going to cut back on the amount of time I spend here each day.  Actually, I've been scaling back for awhile now.  Being on the computer for my 'job' for ten hours every day means too much obsessing about things, and deviantart has been a huge stressful site in my life.  So I cut down to coming on every other day, and might . . . just not force myself to come on if I don't want to.  But I don't want to take forever to reply to comments and see your work either.  It's part of my routine by this point but I don't think it's healthy to be on one site so much.

I also don't like being so dependent on dA for stock especially, so I'm looking for sites with free stock.  Being poor, I don't have enough to buy stock haha. I like dA stock a lot, I just don't know how to deal with sharing work with dA stock on other sites without having to follow a bunch of rules tying the work down.  The rules are fine, I know why they exist, it's just hard to anchor work here as much anymore.

Behance is pretty great, actually.  It doesn't really have the social aspect but maybe that's why I like it.  It's a place just for art and commentary on art, from people all over the world.  If dA is going to be more social media, I'll probably mainly use it just to keep up with friends and watchers and post my actual art elsewhere.  I've been mulling this over for a long time, not just since yesterday, and it bothers me that I let small things make me so upset, especially on dA. 

Anyway, that sort of helped to write lol.  Not really sure what the point was to it.

Oh oh I also stored some of my stuff and unstored other stuff, etc.  Aaaand that deleted all the notifications of comments, faves etc.  So if I didn't respond or thank for faving that's why /epic fail.

The end :)

Heartist by Nameda

"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
