Deviant Art People! Welcome to my homepage!
A new year and so, therefore, a new bio from Moi!
I have said it before and I'll say it again: I am not an artist, I appreciate art in all of it's forms. And you sure get that in spades here at DA, and then some.
I am still moved and emotional by all of the talents on display here. Each and every single day there are things that make me stop and stare, I think I'm moving but I go nowhere, but can you see what I see?!!!
I'm wondering if I will reach a limit overload on my favorites collection. Check it out! It's jammed packed full to bursting with things that I have collected and continue still to collect from the most wonderful artists. It kills me that I can not follow each and every artist here; but that seems impossible. But I sure do have a vast collection of ones that I do follow.
You watch me and I really try to watch you back. Llama me I llama you and llama him and llama her and we llamallamadingdongallday!!!!! I love llamas and am trying to accomplish 100,000 llamas. I'm not busting my butt to do so, just taking my time. Sending out llamas to everone I see, but most peeps don't send them back, but that's alright. Does not stop me from coninuing to send them out. So I ask you all politely to check out your llamas and see if you have received one from me, and then send one back, please.
Watch out for trollers and haters and otherwise stupid people. They all of a sudden leave stupid comments in your comment section of art that you release here. IGNORE THEM. DO NOT RESPOND IN ANY WAY TO THEM. They are stupid and ignorant and just want to get your goat and entice you to argue with them. DON'T DO THAT!
Also, and I believe this to be VERY important.
If you have NOTHING NICE OR CONSTRUCTIVE TO SAY either about someone's art, or something about the artisit in general THEN DO NOT SAY ANYTHING AT ALL. Understand one thing here people. WORDS HURT MORE ONLINE THAN THEY DO FACE TO FACE. There are younger artists here on this website who can not 'fight back' when they get hate slang in their comments of a piece that they put out. Also, there are artists on here who do not know English as their primary language, and get very flustered when they try to respond to hate comments, and then are teased about that! How ANYBODY could be stupid and crass enough to even do that to someone else is beyond my comprehension. IS IT IMPOSSIBLE TO THINK THAT ARTISTS CAN NOT SUPPORT OTHER FELLOW ARTISTS???? Again; IF YOU HAVE NOTHING CONSTRUCTIVE TO SAY THEN SHUT THE HECK UP AND DO NOT COMMENT. Easy as that. It is called ettiquette. Scroll down to the very bottom of everybody's screen here and you will find that word there. Ettiquette. Click on that word and read the information there and take heed. It really is not difficult.
Those are two things that have affected my fun time here.
Some say that I care too much. I say there are many here that just simply DON'T CARE AT ALL. I have gone back to artists who have left crass jarring comments on someone's art and called them on the carpet for being an outright asshole. The most common excuse is that 'they were so tired that they didn't know what they were writing', or 'who are you? What are you talking about?' and when I quote to them what they wrote they have some lame ass excuse for writing that hate message. Put the shoe on the other foot, just imagine that I wrote a comment on your art and said that it was stupid effing shite, you call yourself an artist, yah an artist of crap. What do you think YOUR response would be? And do not say 'I wouldn't care' as I know for even one second that it did get your goat. It gave you even a second of pause. I know it would. If you wouldn't like it on your art then don't put it on someone elses art. No excuses for it, NONE NONE NONE. Etiquette. Look it up.
That is my lecture for three months. I've got it off my chest. Thank you for listening. But _take heed_
Peace! Love! Respect! Accept!
