New BeginningI haven't written anything in so long. So much has happened. I want to make this a good journal because in the past they were so sad and depressing from my loss. I really have tried becoming into my own since everything happened. I had a little help but I pretty much did it on my own. It was a long journey and it's still on going. I am now seeing someone very dear to me named Kyle. We have been dating 8 months. I am very happy with him and I am in love once again. I try not to expect too much because I know how things can change in an instant. But for now I'm happy. I really want us to work. I adore him. There are some things I see that I wish I could change already. Hopefully they will get better. I always find myself saying that. But this time I really do try to be up front about my feelings and I over analyze everything but who wouldn't after everything. I hope this one is different and we'll be happy together. I really am a deserving person esp. of love. I am not arrogant at all bu

Never Change Your Taste by coffeeflakesaroundme:thumb76022
Its been 6 months...Everyday is hard for me. Life goes on and my heart beats still. Still....I feel as if I'm barely breathing and I'm holding on to something so untouchable so unreachable. He doesn't feel anything for me nor does he show an ounce of remorse for what he has done. Destroyed me is the only thing I can say. I'll spare you the depth of the situation. My trust has been terminated and no longer will I look for something that doesn't exist in a society so self indulged. Meaningless words are used everyday, something so special gone in a blink of an eye. People cheat, people lie, people use people, and embarrass them and themselves without a bit of care. I really don't understand any of it. Love and hate are so powerful. You can't get any deeper than those two words alone. The meaning behind them, the feeling behind them. Most of us don't even know what real love is or are we willing to truly feel how intense and amazing it can be. To give yourself fully to someone and receive the same in return.

I'm not okay...So he left....gone...told me he didn't love me and maybe never has....told me he doesn't know why we were together in the first place. Never saw it coming but yet when it did I should have saw the red flags. So they say. Even if he looked at me and told me he was sorry and that he wanted to be with me now, I would forgive him. I'm bawling my eyes out. Such a migraine. How do you plan your life out with someone and then want nothing to do with them? I can't breathe. Completely out of my element out of my grasps out of my control. What now?! I'm lost...so lost. I'm in consolable, completely shattered.
There's a Possibility,
There's a Possibility,
All that I had was all I'm gonna get
There's a Possibility,
There's a Possibility,
All I'm gonna get is gonna be yours then
All I'm gonna get is gonna be yours then
So tell me when you hear my heart stop
You're the only one that knows
Tell me when you hear my silence
There's a possibility I wouldn't know
Evanescence song featuresSo I love Evanescence and being my favorite band I figured I would do a feature about the songs on the cds that make pieces come to life.
Music is art and art is love. As one of many fans music touches everyone differently and her words and music are so powerful.
It really touches my soul. So I picked lots and lots and I do mean lots, of features to go with them!! Hope you enjoy.
This is probably the longest feature I have done but I'm happy with it so if it takes everyone a few days to look I'm sorry lol.
I always get carried away and with my favorite band its not hard to do.

He's Like The Wind RIP Patrick SwayzeI wanted to do a tribute to the amazing actor who brought so many joy in the movies I watched when I was a young girl. Not only did I love him but he made amazing memories for me and my grandma as she just adored him and is a little older than him. Makes me realize it doesn't matter how old you are you could be gone in flash. Make the best memories you can with your loved ones you never know when they will be gone.

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

JULY Challenge WATER last day to vote:icontransparentplz:
All works here
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!

The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .

Freelance Paychecks are RealA few weeks back while thinking about this journal, I came across a forum for paid photojournalism jobs. I left it some time later in complete shock. There I found posting after posting about jobs paying nothing, next to nothing, or promising payment and then paychecks never arriving in the mail. I sat there, closed the laptop lid, and thought for a long while.
I know I’m fortunate to be paid for what I do. A big part of this is because I specialize in something very few photographers are doing at a professional level. But what most people don’t realize is that even at this level a large percentage of my workload involves pay negotiations. There are contracts that took months of negotiation. Some took weeks, or a single week, or several days, or a flurry of emails or texts in just a few minutes.
Every single one of those initially low-balled me; offering me starting contracts at 10-20% of my regular rate. And despite publications th
