Eve
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States



I'm a self taught artist, who has discovered the wonders of digital art in 2007. My software of preference is Adobe Illustrator, but I know my way around in a variety of other softwares. Sometimes I wish I had all the time in the world to dedicate just to my art, because it's my true passion!!! :love: ... My avatar image is my first uploaded painting when I opened my account back in October 2009, I was really proud of it, and will never forget how I felt when I saw the pageviews counter adding up!!! :faint: ... I thrive to never lose that sense of "awe" I had when I first started here, and so far it's intact!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::love::iconflyingheartsplz: Whenever I see a fave or someone gives me a llama, or they write me a comment, it brings me a lot of joy!!! :iconmimose-stock: That is why I would like to take this opportunity to thank in advance all of you who do so much to support me!!! :love: Sometimes life gets in the middle and I'm unable to answer each one of you individually, I will eventually answer, please know it!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::iconsweethugplz::iconflyingheartsplz: So thank you, my dears!!! :iconaawplz: From the bottom of my heart!!!

ALL ABOUT C-91

Fri Apr 24, 2015, 1:26 PM
All About
:iconc-91:



We all see them around DeviantArt :love: … they do WONDERFUL things for this community in one way or another :typerhappy: … we admire them; we love them; we would LOVE to get to know them a little more :iconloveloveplz: … Well now is your chance to see how they are, how they think, how ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL they are!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::iconlainloveplz::iconflyingheartsplz:

Today we will get the chance to look into C-91 ’s heart :love: … She’s one of the Community Volunteers of DA and she takes care of the Fractal Art Gallery :iconloveloveplz: … Do you want to peek into her heart??? :iconloveloveplz: Well, COME ON!!! :iconyaayplz: Let’s go meet the “human” behind the username!!! :eager:



TheGalleryOfEve


Who is C-91 , how would you describe yourself?






C-91


First of all, C-91 is Silvia! :D The person behind my nickname is extremely clumsy and has shyness issues. That's something that prevents me from contacting people first (and something often taken as being snob :| I'm nowhere near being snob :grump ). But I swear, I only need a little bit of input from the other side to "unlock" myself. :blushes: Other than that, I'm trying to get my bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering, I like preparing cheesecakes (I usually make the cookie one, but I'm open for suggestions...especially on the cheese! I'd like to try something different from my usual. :noes:), I enjoy travelling and I'm addicted to 100% pineapple juice. :D




Mockingbird by C-91



TheGalleryOfEve


What do you enjoy the most about your own DA experience?






C-91


I know I said I'm shy, but what I love the most on deviantART is interacting with others. :D During these three years of activity, I had the possibility to get in touch with people from all over the world. I created strong bonds with some of them and got the chance to see how they work and learn something new. :D As a fractal artist wannabe, sharing is really important to me: thanks to that, I could develop my current skills and also I could start sharing what I know. There's still a lot to learn but...hey! Little by little, anything can be done!




Luci di Ottobre by C-91



TheGalleryOfEve


What brings joy into your life outside of DA?






C-91


Not huge things. I like to get little bits of happiness from time to time. :D I consider myself a very lucky person already, so I can rely on little things for joy...like a slice of cake or passing an exam (lately, it's a huge source of joy :| ). Sounds stupid, but it's true! :ashamed:
Oh, and there's another deviant (Xyrus-02) who's bringing me joy at the moment. :lol: by iDJPanda Alone his "being there" is happiness to me. :heart:




Enchantment by C-91



TheGalleryOfEve


If you could have ONE wish fully granted in life, what would be that one thing you would call "A dream come true"?






C-91


Hard question. :ponder: by Taimotive I'll be a bit selfish with the first thing that came to my mind :lmao:  I think if I succeed in getting my bachelor, many of my problems would end right now. There are so many unpleasant things related to that I can't stand it anymore. :noes: So, yeah, I wish I could get my bachelor degree as soon as possible. And I wouldn't call it "a dream come true", rather "a nightmare that comes to an end". :rofl:




Bright Lights by C-91



TheGalleryOfEve


What is in your opinion your BEST quality as a human being?






C-91


Given that I prefer other people to recognize my qualities, a little bit of self-consciousness never hurts. :D So...mmm...I think my main quality is kindness. :flowerponder: by Helen-Baq  :blushes:
I try to make myself always available when help needed and -I have to say- often people take that for naivety and try to take advantage on that. :noes: Like "you give a hand, they take the whole arm" (freely translated from Italian xD). :noes:
That bothers me a bit, but doesn't prevent me from doing what I do. :nod: I just enjoy it. :D




Soother by C-91



TheGalleryOfEve


If a time machine was invented and you could travel in time to any period of your life, which one would you like to revisit? Would you try to change anything about that time?






C-91


Back to the moment I chose Chemical Engineering and hit the past myself with a shovel. :noes:
J/K. :lmao: I don't think I'd revisit any period. Even the worst mistake I made helped to build the person I am now. Also, they always taught me that everything is solvable unless really serious stuff, and thankfully I can't say I have great troubles in my life. :D




World at Their Feet by C-91



TheGalleryOfEve


What is your true passion in life?






C-91


As you can see from my profile, one of my true passions are fractals. I don't have much to say that I haven't already said, except my passion for them and for the fractal community brought me to apply for the Fractal Art CV position. :heart: In real life, I extremely enjoy Wing Tjun, which is a branch of Kung Fu. I started it almost a year ago in the Basic course and after some months I've been promoted to a higher class. Now I have a fancy and meaningless red belt. :lmao: Anyway, I practice it three times a week in an Academy, where I found a warm place in which I could easily make friends. :D
Last, but not least, I'm a fan of the Angry Videogame Nerd. :lmao: I rofl everytime I watch an episode and love to watch old episodes again. I still have to watch the movie, but I'm sure it will be fun! :w00t:




Melograno d'Inverno by C-91



TheGalleryOfEve


What occupies your thoughts during most of the day?






C-91


I think about...things. :D I can get distracted really easily, that's why I can't concentrate much on studying stuff. :flowerponder: by Helen-Baq
For example, "what's for dinner tonight?", or imagining random future situations...I also think a lot about that deviant who makes me happy. love avatar by MenInASuitcaseLa love by Indae




Laatikko by C-91



TheGalleryOfEve


What does "LOVE" mean to you?






C-91


I discovered recently what Love means...at least from my point of view! :D I'm not talking about the love for my parents/relatives and my friends, more about the love experienced towards a "stranger". It's something so powerful that can make you do even the craziest things, just to be with THAT special person. I found myself doing actions I couldn't even think of or didn't share when I wasn't in love. It's over everything, it beats cultural barriers, distance and changes yourself from day to night. :heart: I'm really attached to my boyfriend: he was and still is my bestfriend, a person I can rely on for my happiness and a huge support for my not-so-strong self-confidence (and for everything in general). :love: I only wished he could live nearer me, so I can go and hug him whenever I want. :noes: Nevermind, means I will enjoy the moments we can actually be together to the nth degree! :backhug: by cindre

What is your favorite quote?

”When one door closes, another opens.”
If something goes wrong and ends, there's a new beginning! :dummy: And it's always better, it's amazing! :love:

10 Facts about myself


:bulletblack: I’m a chocoholic  EveStare by TheGalleryOfEve
:bulletblack: I used to have braces on my teeth when I was a teenager, and now … even though my teeth are straight, I still cover my mouth when I smile (It’s not done on purpose, I always notice I’m doing that once I already did it :giggle:)
:bulletblack: I’m very tall
:bulletblack: I’m too emotional and sensitive, so it’s VERY easy to hurt my feelings (you have no idea of the things that have hurt my feelings around here, that I’ve never told anyone about, because I know it’s nobody’s fault that I’m so sensitive :shrug:)

:bulletblack: Despite having worked with several airlines for many years, I’m afraid of flying :XD:
:bulletblack: I don’t color my hair yet :icondivaplz:
:bulletblack: I hardly ever get angry, but when I do I can’t talk (for example when somebody says something hurtful to me face to face or does something to a loved one), instead I get all red like a tomato and start crying inconsolably like an idiot from the shame for getting red and the impotence for not being able to respond sharply and quickly :iconfacepalmplz: (Then of course, 2 minutes after I go I start thinking “I should have said this or that” :roll: Yeah, my “timing” is perfect Sarcastic Clap -Revamp- by Cameljacks)
:bulletblack: In real life I’m shy :ashamed:

Senior Week

Today we are interviewing Seniors who have been Community Volunteers in the past



We've all wondered at some point in our DA life "what does it take to become a Senior?" And when we read the official answer on FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member? We see that there are many reasons for it, but all of those reasons talk about a positive contribution to the community. Well, today :iconsserenita: and :iconthegalleryofeve: sat down with some of those former Community Volunteers who are now Senior Members, to talk to them and see how they view Seniority from their perspective. Our interviewees are :iconastralseed:, :iconmaytel:, :iconrydi1689:, :iconthiefoworld:, :icontiganusi: and :icontommygk: :love:






How do you feel about Seniority in general?


:iconastralseed:

This is kind of difficult to answer because I don't feel like there is any one feeling attached to seniority. Seniority is a really cool thing and I am happy to be a part of it, but I also realize that it's not always what it's made out to be.


:iconmaytel:

Since I'm a past CV, to me my seniority does not feel different as someone else's seniority that was gained because they stood out in the crowd and deserve recognition because of their positive impact on the community. So you guys, the ones that got your seniority because of awesomeness, I salute you! The rest of you, who are former CVs like me, I salute you too, but in a different way. I respect that you managed not to drown because of those billion DD note requests  haha! Represent! (do people still say that?):heart: Just kidding though, I love all of you :)


:iconrydi1689:

From the POV of someone receiving seniority I think it's deviantART's way of saying "you've done something good for this community and we appreciate it". That alone holds a lot of meaning for those who receive it, their fellow deviants acknowledged their efforts and bestowed their gratitude upon you through seniority. From a community perspective I think it’s good to have seniors, many of them became seniors after stepping down from being Community Volunteers so they often act as a bridge between the community and the staff members, passing on suggestions and ideas, helping out wherever they can… etc. I feel seniority helps keep the community alive and united in its own way.


:iconthiefoworld:

I think is something great, a recognition to deviants who go an extra mile in making this community awesome, one way or another, and that's the beauty of it; it's not given for a single reason, many seniors are given the status for different reasons, but I think is great that the community gives this recognition to those outstanding deviants. The only thing I don't like from it is the ambiguity of the concept, even I as a senior can't exactly say what seniority is :P


:icontiganusi:

I love that the people who work really hard for deviantART - as a community, as a business, or whatever other angle they decide to work hard at - get recognition for their efforts. It's a great way for the staff to show their gratitude and their support for the community, which is something that people forget often: The staff really do love this site and the people on it just as much as regular users do, even though sometimes they have to make hard decisions that the community might not agree with 100%. By giving us our little medals they're raising our individual profiles within the community, but also showing other people that they might get the same special treatment if they put in effort too. It's a great way to make people want to get involved - maybe someday they'll get to join our little Order of Badges.


:icontommygk:

Being a part of the council of elders makes me feel special and appreciated for the very hard work I put in during my time in the Fan Art gallery and boy, I'd love to get back into that. It symbolizes one of my biggest accomplishments and gives me a chance to share inspiring words to non-seniors since they tend to look up to us. We must be very wise, for the council of elders will always open their doors to non-seniors. We are also extremely old too. ;P You're welcome to our hands anytime, but not on our lawns! :icontkthreatenplz:




I can't contain my love... by Astralseed1250 - ASS Reiki by Astralseed#169 - ASS Cafe au lait by Astralseed

(from Astralseed's gallery)





Having donated your time and effort as a Community Volunteer in the past, what's your outlook on community involvement? What do you appreciate seeing more of, and what do you feel could be improved?


:iconastralseed:

Community involvement is a really big thing for me. I'm all about community and doing what I can to help nurture and grow community spirit/involvement/etc... I don't feel that my previous experience as a CV has had any real impact on my thoughts and feelings in regards to community involvement though, so I'd hope people will see me and what I do/say/feel and how I think as just me without any relation to prior experiences as a volunteer.
I love seeing other members get involved and just really getting their hands dirty by working to drive the community forward. It's not hard and I think everyone can find at least something small they can do to help push our communities forward, even if it's just leaving encouraging comments or such.
As far as improvements go, I think we've lost a lot of community involvement over the years. I'm not sure if it's because people are browsing more and more from their phones while on the go, or if it's a generational thing where kids don't want to spend the time and give back to the communities they love, but it I'd be overjoyed if more people would start getting involved!


:iconmaytel:

I'm actually one of those CV's that mysteriously disappeared after finishing my term and it seems like there's always lots of news to catch up on. I'm loving all the changes and the direction that the community is going.  As for improvement, I can't really say.
I personally love to be involved into the community because whatever I put into it, it always comes back to me positively. It's a bit like karma?
I'm actually volunteering in another local community and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to do that right now (don't worry it's not cheating, I still love you dA).


:iconrydi1689:

We have an amazing community, always looking for new goals to achieve and projects to contribute to. I know most of our CVs already host plenty of contests, chat events and projects and I love that! :D I hope they continue to foster and encourage the community to strive for improvement and success! That being said, I would like to see other CVs who might not be too active except for featuring DDs to step forward and start engaging with the community they look after! :)


:iconthiefoworld:

I feel the community has grown a lot, during the years I've been here, and with that the way we interact with each other has evolved, most of these changes have been for good and I appreciate that, but I also think one of the things that somehow are getting lost is the personal interaction with each other due the great volume of people who are here compared to the people that used to be here a few years back. Though I don't think is something necessarily bad, many people is joining the site and of course, not all of them are interested in getting involved in the community the way I did or many people I know did or are doing right now, but that's ok, if you're a member of this community and post your art, write journals and comment other's art, you are in fact getting involved in the community. The only thing I would like to see more, is people reaching these new members to let them know there are volunteers who can help them, there are groups and activities that are fun to join and that doing good for others is in fact, rewarding.


:icontiganusi:

Community involvement is a great thing, but it's not limited to just one specific way of being involved and it can happen in a lot of ways that people don't think of or know about  - some people might do a lot of back-end work on projects and not take a lot of credit publically, or work in weird departments of dA's staff where they don't interact with the front-end much but do little things every day that help a lot of users enjoy their time here, or maintain really unique galleries and collections that inspire and teach other people. The possibilities are endless but what they have in common is they impact other people who use the site in a tangible way. That's the definition of "community involvement" in my mind.
It makes me very happy to see people joining the site to actually network! A lot of people come here just to drop their art or fav some stuff and then not interact any further, and I respect their right to do that. They're important parts of the deviantART machine too. When someone new who has a lot of talent and initiative joins and starts educating other people, critiquing art, joining sub-communities I find that inspiring. The dA community is huge now so it can be hard to work up the courage to become that active when you're new. I'd really love to see less of a sense of the smaller subcommunities being their own things separate from the dA community as a whole, though. There is a lot going on around the site and when you're only looking at your little clique of people you can miss a lot of great opportunities elsewhere.

This was actually something I experimented with during my times as a CV. I then heard from little birdies and magpies that a lot of people like to collaborate with other artists and make big public projects in groups and such!!
So I became a curious little monkey , and decided to experiment by making a big project out of the simplest character I could think of.
Take my big Kirby collab for example.
Kirby 166 by TommyGK
There was really no charity purpose to this thing. I just wanted to celebrate Kirby's 20th anniversary, and after having promoted this in the communityrelations
my message center exploded. Therefore as it turns out, the majority of the CR members were active artists looking for ways to be a part of the community. 166 people were involved in that Kirby collab.Starela Kirby by Die11
I've had plenty of other success with the community, take the Pokemon Charity Ball collab:
Gentlemon Charity Ball 270 by TommyGK
I was overwhelmed with how many people were involved, a whopping 270 people, and this was for the Filipinos when they were hit by that Typhoon. We bought a shelter for the homeless with the money we raised. Big time. I was extremely proud of deviantART that day.
I would love to see more people getting involved with such things, because they really can bring out the fun and motivation in you. However I haven't had much luck with big collabs lately, so I'm noticing it's becoming more 'dead' here in the community, I hope there is a way we can resurrect the dead and put them to good use. :plotting: by KimRaiFan

What have you learned about our community during the course of your CV term(s)? Would you volunteer again? Why?


:iconastralseed:

I volunteered in a few areas and each area was unique in its own way. I think there are a whole bunch of different sub communities on dA and some are larger while others are smaller, but it's within the sub communities where you'll generally find more involvement and enthusiasm for the community as a whole. I like to think of it in terms of living in a large city where you don't really know or interact much with your neighbors vs living in a small town where everyone knows everyone.


:iconmaytel:

I have learned so many things; strangely time management was a big one because of the workload. I've also learned so many new forms of art that I never knew existed. What I loved most was the comments and ideas that deviants shared with me. I miss the billions of notes.
I'd love to volunteer again but maybe not right now. I would not feel right doing it since I can't give it the time that it deserves.


:iconrydi1689:

There’s just so many amazing people, when you become a CV you get to interact with a wider audience and you get to learn about them AND from them. It’s been a while since I was CV but I remember their eagerness to learn and their enthusiasm to improve the site with their ideas.
I’ve been a volunteer twice, first as Fan Art CV and then as Manga and Anime CV. I think it’s good for the team and the community to interact with different people with new and refreshing ideas for the galleries. I could be interested in volunteering again in the future, but probably only for the Fan Art category, I think that’s where my heart belongs the most. I felt a genuine connection with its community when I was Fan Art CV.


:iconthiefoworld:

I learned many things of course, but I'll tell you one and I think is one of the most important: our commnity is DIVERSE and as such, there are people of all kinds of mindsets, points of view, ways of work, etc. and each should be respected. There are for example, many people who are so jealous of their work and will get offended if you share their work even if just by putting a link on a tweet, while there are others who are so relaxed in this point and will even encourage you to use their art for things like banners or icons, etc. without asking for permission, and both positions should be respected. There are also artists who are serious about their art form and will try to do everything as professional as possible, trying to build a carreer out of their art, while there are others who are here just for fun and will do silly things because they're just having fun... and both should be respected. DA is a huge community and we are all here for different reasons, and as long as you don't break any rules, you should be free to do whatever you want and be respected (and of course, pay with the same respect).
Would I volunteer again? Of course! It's an experience I loved, both times, and I would certainly do it again, if given the opportunity... just not that soon ;) maybe in a few years, I'm currently enjoy being just a "regular" deviant =P


:icontiganusi:

The community is huge, passionate, supportive, open to being influenced and cultivated, very reactive to things they like and don't like, and overall pretty forgiving. When I was a volunteer (we were called GMs back then) I had more long discussions with users about little minutiae like phrasing of DD write-ups than I could count, because they'd send an email or a note expressing their like or dislike about something they saw and then actually invite dialogue about what it meant to them. Even the users who were really mad in their initial notes would usually turn out to be pretty nice if you let them express their side of the situation, acknowledged it, and invited them to discuss how you could do better next time.
I'd volunteer again, yes - the experience was great and I loved being in a position where I could so readily advocate for the photography community at the staff level. Sometimes it feels like voices get lost in the community and no one's going to be able to find them let alone listen to them and try to make changes, and that's basically what the CV position is, being the person who listens and advocates. But it's not something that I feel I absolutely need to do if I want to help the community. I've been involved in things both before and after being a volunteer that I think have had just as much impact as volunteering did, if not more. But it's still nifty to be able to look at things like the darkroom gallery's subcategories and be like "THAT RIGHT THERE. I DID THAT." :P


:icontommygk:

I would absolutely love to volunteer in the Fan Art galleries again, because I feel that is where I really thrive on. I love on nostalgia and traditional Fan Arts most, though I have always given EVERYONE a chance. I would feature popular artists, and unpopular/struggling artists. I had a preference to expose the unknown, and I had been suggested popular artists many times. It's almost a war when it came to people suggesting DD's.
I feel suggesters need to realize that they should worry about trying to get a piece exposed rather than trying to get their username engraved on the DD box.
Don't get me wrong though, I have had many great suggesters noting me and am still friends with some of them to this day.
When I conducted interviews during my term, I noticed they were very friendly and had a ton of knowledge to share. They were an amazing pleasure to interview, and I even carried them on after my term ended.
This community basically in a nutshell, is very involved and I mean it in a good way.

Your username has undergone many symbol changes throughout your journey here on DeviantART. In retrospect, how do you feel people's interaction with you has changed since you first joined the site?


:iconastralseed:

I don't think I've had much change in the way people interact with me on the site. Overall I have seen people return the same attitudes to me that I put out there. So if I'm kind and helpful, I generally see appropriate responses to that, regardless of my symbol.
It's also worth mentioning that I think that people are starting to care less and less about what symbols are attached to which users, and rather are focusing on the person as an individual.


:iconmaytel:

Of course. From before premium to after premium there was no difference in interaction. It really changed when I got the :heart: next to my name, I got so many more page views the second I got my CV title also the notes started to flood in and people started acting differently (both positively and negatively) with me. After getting the senior symbol (once my term was over) it kind of all got back to normal.


:iconrydi1689:

When I first joined the site not many people paid attention to me but that had little to do with my symbol though. Even with the following symbol changes I haven’t noticed any difference in the way people approach me, except for when they come to me suggesting DDs (that I can’t feature anymore though) or when they ask me for guidance in certain aspects of the site.


:iconthiefoworld:

Well, I think the only significant change I noticed was during my terms as Community Volunteer, I think mainly because for the people who are not that involved, seeing a deviant with a "rare" symbol, such as the heart (or the hat ^ as it used to be) makes them think you're someone important, and/or someone who you shouldn't mess with. And even in a general sense, CVs get indeed gain some kind of respect, I think the efforts of a CV are taken more seriously, which is understandable, you're somehow doing things "officially", so to speak.


:icontiganusi:

When I first got fairly active on the site - early summer of 2006 - I had a kind of odd experience. I got active through the chat community and most of my friends at the time in the chat community were senior members, volunteers, and staff. On dA to an extent the community lumps you in with the people you're seen interacting with a lot, and the people I was running projects and rooms with had nifty symbols too so when I got my first tick in 2008 I didn't get treated any differently that I remember. I got a bigger following after becoming a senior, but that had more to do with me getting involved in more things and opening my mouth about specific things that got people talking. I switched accounts when I became a volunteer, and that was a much bigger change for me - people who'd been absolute jerks to me for years all of a sudden wanted to be my best friend and I had to grit my teeth and smile and not tell them to go to hell. And a couple people who were good friends for years did the opposite, and stopped talking to me because I gave in to "the man". I took a bit of a hiatus from dA after I left the volunteer team, and when I came back it was back to normal. People treat me now the same way they did before I volunteered.


:icontommygk:

I will tell you one thing, I was having a very hard time fitting into this place when I first joined this community. I've made more rivals than friends, and my first account tomthechar was basically bombed with MS paint Pokemon drawings. It was very discouraging. I never been able to draw well anyways, but I can make anything with my hands so that makes up for that.
Then I eventually made StormPenguin my new account and submitted my photos, tho I was never happy with my photography. I still had rivals but I started making friends around them. Not to mention all the drama and blah blah blah.
I decided to make myself feel more accomplished, I send my first DD suggestions to snowmask (who is dangerously awesome in high levels btw :heart:) and had my first suggestion accepted by her. I felt so happy that because of me, some awesome artist is going to have 5 times more views than ever. The feeling was great and I started to make friends with a brighter side of the community.
Then one day, the most jawdropping thing happened when I was in Hawaii. Moonbeam13 contacted me and wanted me to work in the Fan Art gallery!! Bulbasaur la plz by litecrushCharmander la plz by litecrushSquirtle by litecrushRaichu la plz by litecrush
I was utterly speechless and literally had to wait a couple hours so I could come up with words again! :lol: I accepted the challenge and a new world of art opened up to me. I would do this again in a heartbeat :love:
When my term ended, I became a member of the circle of elders. It had become a lot quieter, tho it didn't affect how I was able to run big collaborations. My Pokemon Charity ball collab was run when I was a Senior Citizen (did you get off my lawn yet?)
It does however, affect how many messages I get a day tho :lol: I still get DD suggestions from time to time!

If you were asked to select a candidate to suggest for Seniority, what qualities do you personally feel should be rewarded with such an esteemed accolade?


:iconastralseed:

I actually suggest people for seniority once or twice a year, though the number of people I've suggested is generally pretty low (2 - 4 different people per year usually).
What I look for when suggesting for seniority is involvement in the community. I tend to suggest the people who work hard to make dA an awesome place to be. Often I suggest people who work hard behind the scenes because in my experience, those are usually the ones who put in the work without expecting anything in return, not to mention the community as a whole generally doesn't ever recognize their efforts, so it's nice to see them gain some recognition for the dedication they give to the site.


:iconmaytel:

Personally, I would look for someone that has had a strong positive impact on the community. Someone who always goes above and beyond.


:iconrydi1689:

I’ve suggested quite a few deviants for seniority and they all had many things in common, they were all selfless people who strived to make deviantART a better place. You can tell they do it out of love and not to achieve a status, their love for the site is genuine and it shows. Just being close to them makes you want to follow in their footsteps and nurture the community.


:iconthiefoworld:

I'm going to say something that might sound stupidly obvious, but I think not many people think of it when asked a question like this, and that is: if the person is nice, friendly. Of course I'm not saying that we should give seniority to a deviant just because they're nice, but being nice is the start of it. If you care about others, if you strive to make this community better and focus your time here to that, you start by being a friendly deviant, willing to be nice to others. Many people I know who were eventually given seniority share this quality.


:icontiganusi:

I like seeing people get seniority who build, or contribute to the infrastructure of, their own specific corners in the dA community. I suggest a few seniors every few months, and I usually suggest people who've made efforts to either legitimize an art form on the site or build a community around a specific genre, style, topic or theme (chats and forums count too!). I also suggest people who are voices that rise above the crowd in unusual ways - people who complain or support, but do it eloquently and convincingly - like Danium and raspil. I try to throw in one wild card type suggestion every time too; my most recent one like that was a user who has maintained a feature of one different piece every day for the last eight years within a single subgallery of photography.


:icontommygk:

I would look for someone who very involved with the community and express their genuine love for art. I feel seniority should be awarded to people who consistently tries to leave their footprint in the community not for fame or popularity, but because it strengthens the community and secures our world of art for generations to come.

What words of advice do you have for aspiring Seniors?


:iconastralseed:

My advice would be not to aspire to be a senior!
While I can understand that it's cool to have a special symbol that tells you apart from other users etc, to me, I'd like to see those awarded who don't aim for it, but rather give because it's something they love to do or are just passionate about.


:iconmaytel:

If you want to be a Senior for the sake of being a Senior then you're doing it wrong. The best way to become a Senior is to make a strong positive impact on the community. If this is something that interests you then do it! It doesn't matter what you get in return because believe me; you will get lots of love :)


:iconrydi1689:

Be genuine! Do your best and do it from the bottom of your heart, only then will you be acknowledged as a senior. It’s not about the symbol, it’s about the appreciation from people you help, that’s the greatest reward.


:iconthiefoworld:

I think the first thing is that you don't try to be a senior. If you're trying maybe you're not doing things properly. Do your thing without wanting to be rewarded for it.


:icontiganusi:

My advice goes for current seniors as well as aspiring seniors: Don't try too hard to "be a senior member". Just be yourself and do what you'd normally do in the community. Recognition will come for you eventually. And think about why you're doing the things you do - is it to help the community, because you genuinely care about the community? Or have you lost sight of that, and now you just want to be/stay notable so you're keeping things going that you don't feel as passionately about anymore? If you're finding the latter to be true, just take a big step back for a while and think honestly about what you care about and how you can bring that to the community. Even now as a senior, and even when I volunteered, I take that big step back now and then. Every time I do, it makes me feel better about my presence on the site and the impact I can make. Plus it helps remind me how much I care about the things I care about, so my motivation skyrockets.


:icontommygk:

Just because you don't have a DD or a medal, it DOES NOT MEAN you're not a great artist. Make lots of art for people to judge, while they are judging, go and make more art.
If all else fails... PIIIIIZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAA.

then I could call this "Mission Accomplished"!!! :iconlainloveplz:



You can't say you can't!As a child I was a bright student, always used to grab among the first 3 positions in my class, teachers used to love me (I was never a teacher's pet though) and my mom and dad (specially dad) supported me with his heart and soul. We always have guidance/influence from others in some way or the other. I was fortunate enough to get them I guess. But there comes a time in your life where you need to move alone and build your own responsibilities, you need to make your own ways, you need make your own decisions and you need to choose the right path.
The world is cruel enough to pull you down every time you want to climb up. But you can't stop there. You have to move on. You can't say you can't!
I have seen a lot of phases in my life in the last 25 years. In deviantART everyone says they like the way I talk to people, the way I treat them and the way I guide them. May be I shouldn't use the word "everyone", perhaps it should be at least most of them says so.

Self-Respect... It's important!Self-Respect and Self-Esteem
Self-respect is a sense or awareness of YOUR OWN dignity and integrity. You show your worth to yourself and to others (dignity), and you adhere to moral and ethical principles (integrity). You know you have value within you... You appreciate that value, even on a bad day.
Self-esteem is your emotional evaluation of YOUR OWN WORTH. You have confidence in who you are. You can find success in the things you do. Even when you compare yourself to others, you can see your own unique value as an individual. And you can make your own choices and learn from your mistakes.

How to Save a LifeYou can be a Hero and save a life.
I want you to think for second, if you were in an accident or found out your parents had a diseases that left them 6 week to live, what would you do about it?
Would you help them? What if it's your brother or sister that needs help? Would you help them? What if it's your next door neighbour? What if it's someone from a different part of the country? What if it's someone on the other side of the world?
But here is the real question. "If you could receive the help, then why can't you give it?"
Blood donation
Every minute of the day someone somewhere needs blood, everyone need blood sometime in their life, maybe they were In a accident or trying to get through a very risky and difficult operation or even giving birth. They are counting on you to make sure the blood is there when it is needed. Please don't wait for someone else to do this. You are needed.
Only 4% of the eligible population are giving blood, not everyone can give blood, you need to be heal

VOICES AGAINST DISCRIMINATION #3 Suicide Awarenessdis·crim·i·na·tion: the practice of unfairly treating a person or group of people differently from other people or groups of people
I believe a good question would be why do we discriminate? 
A simple answer is because we're taught to fear what strays out of social norms, reject the difference, and try to be as normal as possible in order to be accepted in society.
That's a lame answer isn't it? Sadly, most of it is very, very true. 
However, here's one thing that we should realize, times changed, we're a new, rising generation, unlike our fathers and mothers. Difference is everywhere.

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier.

Super Albino Llama and Thoughts On Life
by ~GermanyXItaly1000, 1 day, 21 hours ago
Journals / Personal
Thanks for the llamas, everyone! I'm so glad that I made it to a super albino llama TT^TT Well, like Mr. Monk, my favourite number is 100, so... I'm happier than ever. Although this is a lie because things in real life have made me happier, and must we remind ourselves that materialistic things will vanish easily.
Oh yes... that brings me to another point.  I've been feeling Confucius-ey lately. With how quickly time is passing by and how close graduation is for me, I've started to feel a bit nostalgic. Do this for me: Think back to a carefree time in your childhood. Think of how little you worried back then about materialistic items, how little you cared for reputation and how much selfless you were.
And then get out there and savour whatever moment of your life is going on.
No matter what we're going through (whether it be a r
Arts and Health: The language of empowermentWhat is empowerment?
Empowerment means different things to different people. I would say that, in general, it means that we are in a position of power such that we have a say in the way things happen in our lives. It means that we can act in ways that will bring the good things we desire into our lives or, if that isn't possible, act in a way that limits the amount of negativity that happens when bad things enter our lives.
It's about being able to make a choice between "I CAN do this" and "I WILL do this."
Contrary to popular belief, the truth is that no one can empower you for you. Empowerment must come from within. The good news is that it doesn't need to require hours of psychotherapy to find it. :XD: It starts simply with language.
Really?!
Yes, really. How often do you put yourself down? How frequently do you begin sentences with, "This may sound crazy/silly/stupid, but . . ."? Do you realize that every time you use words t
PE: 5 EXCUSES why you just can't do better!5 EXCUSES why you just can't do better!
You really want to, you've worked hard to develop the skills you have and you enjoy every minute of doing what you love. And besides, people say that your artworks are...nice. Cute. Doesn't that count for something? Sure it does, there is no reason to panic and pointlessly push yourself forward. Enjoy your coffee break!
Besides, even if you didn't like the current level as much, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it at the moment. So many unfortunate happenings stand right between you and your dream. Recognizing any of the following?

You're right! After all, you are a human being, not a machine, waking up early every morning, heading to school/work, afterwards taking care of the household/kids/your homework, studying, you barely even finish all the tasks during the 24 hours that's been given to everyone.
On the other hand, is there absolutely

Myth: Respect Must be EarnedEveryone goes blind...
Yes, just like the age-old adage goes, "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." Think about it: if you never give respect but expect to receive it, and every other person on the planet thinks the same thing, who is ever going to be respected? If your default setting is to treat me with disrespect or to simply ignore me until I impress you enough to take notice of me, you really aren't worth my time. And I would think that if someone treated you in the same way that they would not be worth your time either. Our default setting should always be to respect first. Even if you don't think all people deserve respect like I do, you still should understand that stating that YOU don't have to earn respect but everyone else does is HYPOCRITICAL and SELFISH.
Respect has no charge associated with it. There are no tricks that one must perform to get respect. It isn't magical. It isn't a fairy tale. It does not require a remote co
IT GETS BETTERTo all those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer, to all those who are young and old, to all those who are being bullied and think that your life is just absolute hell, I'm here to tell you something, something that I think all of you should know: IT GETS BETTER.  
  Like many of you, I was shocked and devastated about the tragic suicides that took place in Fall 2010 and again this Fall 2011. These bright young students were constantly picked on and bullied severely because they were gay or perceived as gay. I know some of you who read this are probably saying right now, "Oh, you know how kids are, they can be so cruel, kids are going to bully regardless". Those who have said it or are even thinking those words as I am speaking, you know who you are. I am letting you know how bad this hurts me as a student who once was looking for the support she never got when she was bullied and harassed in middle school. But I'm getting way off topic. This isn't
