Twelve Years on DeviantArt

Fri Jan 6, 2017, 10:43 AM
I joined DeviantArt on January 6, 2005 so I could follow the fantasy artists who were moving here from Lothlorien/Elfwood. It's been quite a ride.

Thanks to all of you who have delighted me, supported me, challenged me, and otherwise helped me become a better photographer.

Blessings on you way,
Steve

2005-006 Black Creek in Bergen Swamp by pearwood


Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.
Enjoy!

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?



Because it's past time for white-haired white men to stand up and say it.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, let me not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

I've only known you for a short bit of those 12 years, but you're one of my favourite people on here. <3

Happy anniversary, and here's to the next years. :)

Well, I'm not too far behind you.  July 17, 2005, so just a little after you told me about the site.  Of course, I didn't do much for the first several years, but have definitely been enriched being here.  Even with all the other various social network sites I've messed around with, DA is still a unique blend of art, conversation, community, and inspiration!

Happy DAnniversary!
