#via-dolorosa.So i'll be honest, as much as i liked the idea for my journal layout, i didn't really like the purple background.
yay for blue? >
okay, i should really stop doing this. the whole disappearing thing.
and omg, i didn't know the new journal page looked like this, i'm missing out on a lot x.x
okay so here's what this journal is about.
i'm a part of YEC this year (UAE natives, you probably know what this is). it's a young entrepreneur competition where teenagers sell shit. we're selling accessories and t-shirts. i'll post some pictures of the accessories and the t-shirt designs later, and this is one of the ads we made.
if you're living in the UAE, visit us at the Dubai Mall (from 29th of March to the 2nd of April)! :]
and tell people! XD

#amusement.i'm graduating in four months, and school is making me insane *sigh* such a screwed up school.
i miss art.. and inspiration.
and i miss deviantart and my watchers.
i have 18,827 messages (deviations, comments, faves) x.x
i'm sorry for teh unspoken hiatus.
look at teh purdy stuff i found!
#wreckage.still here, just in case anyone's wondering o:
i'm not going to say i barely update because of school. i have been busy with school but that's not why i don't update.
i miss taking pictures because i want to so i did that in the past (uneventful) weekend and just uploaded something.
bearwtihme - it'll take me a while to learn to retouch pictures properly again; it's been ages since i've actually taken my time experimenting.
other than that, i figured out my little sister is a great model. she helped me make posters for clubs we're starting in school, i was actually proud of them when i was done. also, i know this might make me sound stuck up, but i like seeing my work in school (:
that's all for now, i won't bore you with more o:
how is everybody? (:

#fiction.it's been ages since i've updated my journal.
so here we go.
i'm convinced Jimmy killed himself. really, i am. i'm not crazy.
i really want to edit/post pictures but i don't have photoshop. where in the world can one find photoshop for mac? or like, in the emirates.
i also really want to change my journal layout. i think i've had it for a year now. but again; no photoshop or paintshop.
i don't know whether or not to be excited about the Disturbed album coming out at the end of this month, i don't want to be disappointed.
i'm just doing this to pass the time. anything to pass time lately.
features, then i'm off to watch something.
and in a way it seems there's no one to call
when our thoughts are so numb and our feelings unsure
we all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find.
#demons.HAPPY BIRTHDAY nightdimness!
i've got about 11,000 deviantwatch messages, i'll look through them all o.o
i don't have much pictures, and the ones i do have, i'm too lazy to edit 'cause i need to learn new things so all my pictures don't turn out the same. i've done nothing but watch stuff and read books since school ended. oh and bake cookies, lots of cookies *whopeee*
hmm, traveling on the 28th blah blah.
the detail and coloring in this amazes me:
obsession with redheads o.o
why can't i write like this ._.
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!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
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 .
These prizes c
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
