Just a few this time It's been a busy month. Cheers
Devious JournalSo clearly the monthly features didn't last xD I haven't even been looking through my watchers submissions in as long.. sorry, guys. There are over 3000 deviations pending xD I will browse at some stage
Semester two is over for the year, so I'm spending my summer so far looking for work to keep myself, well, not homeless and/or ridiculously in debt by Semester One 2015. I murdered my exams.
My photos are usually taken on the weekends, when I had (or rather made) the free time to get out. I really want to begin working on more conceptual/experimental ideas at some stage, in contrast to just shooting what is. I'd like to begin working with models especially, just to expand my experience somewhat. But.. in good time. I only have one lens so far xD
I am finding it curious, the difference between my favourite photos and yours, dear audience. I'm also noting that almost always, my super wide panoramas don't go over so well and I wonder if it's due to the limitations of viewing them
The AndroidI am very pleased to announce that I'm working on a novel again. It's all here, but essentially, I'm borrowing an idea from Australian author Max Barry, to write a novel in the style of a blog, publishing as I write.
The story so far: Matthias is the first fully functional and self-aware humanoid android. He can and does pass for human. Orphaned by his creator under mysterious circumstances, Matthias plays the role of young, single bachelor with an ordinary job, pretending to be human on a daily basis lest he be discovered and shunned, or captured, or destroyed. Most of all The Android is a novel about being human, but of course, it's a living, public work in progress

People are freakin' insaneI've been a member of deviantART for quite a while (11 years woo). I've never bought in to the game of trading points for views or other schemes that are liable to grant the organiser the greatest number of points. I'd prefer my art to stand on its own merit, I don't need or want fake applause. I'm sure it may be profitable for some.. the more views perhaps the more likely you are to sell a print but hey, I can live without that too.
What really gets me are pages like :iconfiery--aspect:
"I want to distribute love all over deviantART. With these points, I can give back to the community in the form of Premium Memberships or gifts from the shop."
People bought that line to the extent of 7070 points. Really? You know you're unlikely to see those points again, right?

Photography feature - March 2014Hey guys, so I decided to join the crowd on publishing a regular featured set from my favourite photos on dA. These were culled from the most recent 15 pages of my favourites, but in future, I plan to make it a monthly thing.
These are not necessarily recent deviations, just recent discoveries that I find amazing. So, here we go:

Now the only person on MySpaceProbably. That isn't a commercial entity. I like their portfolio system, though. Checkit: https://www.myspace.com/interloperux
AmusedSo, I located a deviation that wouldn't load recently. And I mean, I tried two browsers, refreshed a bunch of times, tried to access the image directly - it wasn't happening. Support tells me the file was lost. Lost XD They lost someone's artwork. I'm amused. It was a piece from 2003, so, I figured maybe it had been an oversight during one of the many updates the site would have had between now and then. Figured I'd do the right thing and let them know. dA: 'There's nothing we can dooo.'
So that's me for this morning. Ttyl
One Photo per Day + Spare PartsHey. So, given an increasing lack of time in which I can get out there and take photos, I'm going to retire my One Photo per Day project. It was fun Took some great images imo, and I've appreciated the favourites and comments on every one.
So, to recap:

Attack on Titan

How to get noticed on deviantARTHi there!
People asked me several times when I've became 'popular' on this site and in which way. I must admit I smelled a bit of envy in their tones, but the thing that troubled me more was that they didn't think that my work was worth all the pageviews I got over the years.
Well, I wanted to explain this little thing right now... dA costed me a lot of work! It wasn't a 'BOOM! POPULAR!' thing at all for me.
I had to study other people's methods too and to work hard on improving my art, and it wasn't easy. At all!
So tonight I'm sharing with you some methods to get attention by dA community.
Don't take them as unquestionable laws, just take them for what they are... Hints.
They worked for me but they may not work for you.
And now that you have a dA account...
What should you do?

The Heartbeat of Modern Music
From the days of Beethoven and Franz Liszt, to the Vaudeville stages of America in the1880s to the 1930s, to the electronic keyboards anchoring the rhythms of today’s rock groups and pop singers, the piano has been the heart of the music animating our popular entertainments. Not as sexy as the guitar, nor as brash as the drums, the pianos have been the steadying source of rhythm and timing holding together songs and other compositions for the past several centuries. And, oh yes, while not being so overtly sexy, pianos can be very romantic. Enjoy this gallery of the musician’s most basic dream machi

Would you believe ground travel from Los Angeles to San Francisco in less than thirty minutes? That’s the prediction of the Hyperloop’s financier, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk (the co–founder of PayPal). The Hyperloop is being designed as a driverless public transport train that will rocket between American c
PE: Know your lineworkTraditional Art Week
When you like drawing, but seek for something stronger than pencil, ink might be a good choice. While it takes time to get used to it (like everything), it's not that hard when you learn the basics, and this article will focus on one of the common uses of ink - lineart.
The first thing that you need is ink. But what kind? Depending whether you plan to draw a lone ink drawing, or mix it with something else, there are different options for different ways of handling your picture. Here are the most common choices:
Waterproof ink - is the most useful when you want to add a layer or layers of paint or water-diluted ink (with a brush) over your your lineart.
Not waterproof ink, like Indian or China ink. It's suitable when your picture is 100% drawing and you don't plan painting over it (of course, you can go ahead and experiment with smudging it with water, but this article focuses just on the lineart).
Coloured ink - whatever yo
