We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!

Random Side Notes I haven't taken any college courses for art. In high school I did take a few art classes but none for computer graphics. So, pretty much everything I do on photoshop is self taught. I constantly read How-to's, tutorials, watch youtube videos to try and learn new techniques. I prefer traditional art but I love to do photomanipulations. Some day, though, I will go to school for art and writing. A goal would be to write my own novels as well as write and illustrate my own books and covers.
Below Is some art from the dominant sections of my gallery. These are pieces I feel are some of my stronger works, I feel fairly confident and proud of them.
Throughout my various periods of inactivity on deviant art I usually spend my time working on my writing or art. I hope to improve, that's why I joined dA. Really, I rely on myself to make sure these changes are consistent and noticeable. Feedback on dA typically involves a lot of +fav's and 'Thank you's.'
So, in the spirit of wanting more feedback I will try to give feedback here and there. Since I watch So many artists and writers it's impossible to give everyone what they need. However, people who I know had been frequenting dA for a long time often catch my eye because they have improved in some way. Those are the ones I tend to comment on the most.
If you need someone to critique something you consider a serious effort let me know. I will try to head over and post something helpful or opinionated in regard to your work. If you're a writer I will do my best to read what you are asking me to read but I have my limits lol. Between my husband and my kid I don't have a lot of time to commit attention for a solid period of time other than in the middle of the night when they are both sleeping
^_^ Personally, I am still very much in 'writer' mode. Almost every day I am working on my stories or written pieces.
If you have any questions, need any tips, or have any requests feel free to ask. I'd like to consider myself one of the few artists who attempts to comment back to any and all messages I get.
Thanks for stopping by

If anyone is interested I will offer what I can. If anyone has a character or a story that needs a sketch or drawing, concept art, etc. I just want to get used to working under pressure and expectations. I want to do this for free and I hope others take advantage of my offer.
All I ask is for people to be specific in what they want. For example, if it's a story and you want a cover or some character concept, I'd appreciate some links to where I can read some of the story (or all of it), some excerpts of character description/examples of persona, a synopsis of the story etc. If it's a cd cover it'd be cool to hear what kind of music it's for, some interests from the musician/s, emotion of the album. If it's something more personal like a tattoo or logo, it's be nice to have some examples or goals laid out.
I am pretty much open to whatever. Since I don't have a job I figure this would be something constructive to do with my time and a good way to learn how to take criticism.
Note me if you are interested in my offer. If you'd prefer to email me, note me and I will give you my email.
I am willing to do the following: * Pencil sketch/drawing * Inked Drawing * Colored drawing w/ Inked Lines * Concept drawing (colored concept on a case by case basis) * CD Cover concept * Tattoo design * Character concept/design --- Please feel free to be very detailed in your requests ---
Resources I do not require any specific credits for gradients other than an icon link to me. I just want other people to know where the gradients came from. If you want to note me with use of these gradients, I would LOVE to see your work and +FAV it!
