Art is life... the more art you see, the more alive you'll feel.
"Why do you think someone would purposefully hurt themselves by taking anything addictive," she asked."
This story presents a vision of a possible future. This story is designed as a warning to all that addiction doesn't always need to be a controlled substance or an addictive drug. Addiction comes in many forms and sinister disguises, and in almost all cases addictions do not have happy endings, since you must always give up something to support the addiction.
This story presents addiction that many do not recognize; addiction to technology, computers, and the internet. I may have a mild form of this addiction... I initially wrote this story with pencil and paper during a point when my computer was broken, and I had no access to the internet. And I went through withdrawal during that time!
|I'd like to spread this idea around a little. Let's start critiquing artwork together.|
I think that Collections is a really awesome feature, and I use that feature a lot, but from what I've heard around from a lot of other people, a favourite without a comment means absolutely nothing.
I'd like to start giving back to the community by using another feature which has been around for a while. The Critique feature. Good critiques are valuable! Favorites are nice, comments are good, but honest well thought out critiques are great.
If you need help in writing a critique, the featured tutorial above offers practical guidelines on where to start and how to complete an advanced critique. This tutorial has been translated into French as well, and the French version can be found here.
To find things that you can critique check out the "Critiqueable" gallery.
"Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man's growth without destroying his roots."

I'm an Admin at SeniorSelections
and I NEED YOUR SUGGESTIONS!!
ALL THE ARTWORK PICKED FOR A FEATURE IS ALSO SUGGESTED FOR A DD!
COSPLAY SUGGESTIONS GUIDELINES
I prefer that the fandom being cosplayed is a clearly known series (Kill La Kill, Hatsune Miku, etc), or easily inferred from style of dress (steampunk, Victorian, etc)
I prefer vividness is photography and costume. Suggest something that will blow my socks off!
SPACE SUGGESTION GUIDELINES
This must be original work! I will not accept rips from ISS Space Station camera, no matter how good it looks.
As long as it involves something space-related, I'm happy to accept it. This includes tutorials, comic strips, Terraspace digital artwork, etc.
SCIENCE FICTION SUGGESTION GUIDELINES
Science Fiction may be based on the real world, but it should be removed enough from current reality that the fictional component is easily seen.
Since Science Fiction can cover so much material, I would appreciate an explanation of why the deviation appealed to you so much in your suggestion note. Help me see the image through your eyes!
I prefer vividness in the subject matter and medium. Suggest something that will blow my socks off!
HOW TO SUGGEST
Send me a note with a thumb or link to the deviation you're suggesting. Please title your note: "SeniorSelections Suggestion" or something to that effect.
Please only send your suggestion to ONE person on the SeniorSelections team.
One thumb or link per note, please. It helps me stay organized.
I will respond to all suggestions as soon as I have time to read them. If you do not hear from me within a couple weeks, please feel free to send me a poke.
You can include a blurb about why you feel a piece deserves to be featured, but it is not necessary. Truly good artwork speaks for itself.
I AM NOW ACCEPTING ALL SUGGESTIONS FOR
SPACE & SCIENCE FICTION ART

The Darkest Hour: A feature from Mental-HealthDid you know?Aeirmid
Approximately 800,000 suicide deaths occur every year around the world. That means someone dies from suicide somewhere in the world every 40 seconds.1 Globally, the incidence of suicide among males is nearly twice that of females.1 In the United States, 1 out of every 5 adults will have a diagnosable mental health concern at some point during their lives.2 A similar statistic is not available for global mental health. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that mental illness is a sizable burden on our planet, and it is one that receives low priority and few resources for treating and/or preventing it. Did you know that, in 85 countries, there is only, at best, 1 psychiatrist for every 100,000 people? It's time to make the world start paying attention to mental health concerns. Think globally, act locally: What better place to start than DeviantArt?
Mental illness can be like a dark night of the soul, where it's hard not to lose hope of ever seeing t
Deviousness and SeniorityMoonbeam13
Many have noticed that I've begun posting the Deviousness articles and I'm happy to take any suggestions you may have for future recipients. Simply take a moment to note me with your suggestion and why you feel they are the the deviant to end all deviants and I'll add them to our list for consideration
Some have also noticed that :faq29: has been updated with a suggestion form. The reasoning for this is pretty simple. Selections are made by a group of people, not just me, and having the information in one central location is the easiest way for us to share thoughts. There was always a plan to move suggestions to a form, it just hadn't happened yet
So to recap:
1. Deviousness suggestions -> send me a note or an email (email@example.com)
2. Senior suggestions - > please submit your suggestion via this

Collection: Once Upon A Timetechgnotic
Once Upon A Time
Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our child

Bosch: Lampoonist or Serious Visionary?
Creator of some of the most bizarre and frightening artwork in the history of art, scholars have long debated who exactly Hieronymus Bosch was and what was the meaning and purpose of his “over the top” grotesqueries (c. 1450—1500). His most famous work is the triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights. Panel One depicts Adam & Eve in Paradise. Panel Two depicts the earthly delights: nude bodies, exotic birds, bowls of fruit. Panel Three depicts Hell’s punishments for partaking of the delights. Centuries later, scholars debated whether he was a radical religious heretic or a satir

This is a part I!
MiyuDimon asks: "What does it feel like, to check your messages and see that in your box. That you got seniority? To me I think that moment when you know, would be a proud moment, a crying moment. But I am curious as to what others felt like."
justMANGO: "Our inboxes just get spammed" Well I actually more excited about getting that than getting a DD. I spent the next 15 mins after I discovered my seniority running around the house like a mad person.

Hi, I'm archaeobibliologist! I am normal person with opinions and feelings, just like everyone else. More specifically, I am an INTJ, with an IQ over 200. As an introvert, I'm very awkward socially, but I do my best to smile at all times, and I have an infectious laugh when amused.
I am addicted to coffee and hot chocolate. I hate weak coffee!
I'm a professional photographer. I shoot engagements, weddings, nature, fashion, models... I am accepting photography commissions. If you would like to retain me, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm a book nerd and a computer nerd! I give wannabe nerds an inferiority complex. It's not unusual to find me reading 5-6 books at the same time. And when I'm not reading, I usually doing some computer programming or shell scripting.
I have a blog (generally about computing and other nerd-interests) on Tumblr at Proxy Glider.
I feel I'm better at writing stories than poetry, but sometimes I can't think of the words to say to write longer, so then I write verses. I like vividness of subject in both pictures and literature. I enjoy writing parodies on existing songs and poems.
I'm very eclectic in television and movies. Mostly anime, science fiction, and fantasy, but occasionally I do something from another genre.
I was a MN@ for about a year and a half and I enjoyed every minute of it! Volunteering for deviantART is a wonderful experience and I encourage everyone to try it.
I only take critiques well when it's coming from someone who wants to help me improve. I don't respect criticism from people who give decide that an art critique can also include comments about my parenting, or other similar incendiary subjects. I don't mind getting a negative critique; but when you critique me please do it to help me improve. Don't just bash me...
I am fiercely loyal to all of my friends, and I always stand up for my friends and what I believe in. If someone does or says something that I feel is wrong, I'll respond and, I can be a fierce fighter when I'm needed to be.
I love helping people unreservedly. If you ever need any help, just send me a note and I'll be glad to assist you as far as possible.
I figure I'll never be remembered for doing anything impressively special in life, but I hope to be remembered for all the small things I've helped in.
