A new place, a new homeHello people,
I'd like to take some time out to describe what has become my new home in the world of art. It's a place called Shadowness, some of you might have heard of it, some of you might have not.
When I first glanced at the website my first thoughts were; "Hmmm, should I join this site? The quality seems way too high, not sure if I can match up and if my presence was appreciated". Though I'm very glad I made that step in the end, just 10 minutes after joining my page was filling up with welcome messages.
How could I have been so wrong about this place? It's quite literally full of warm hearted people, trying to help you out as you figure out how the website. Receiving plenty of comments on my work as I went a long. It was the most welcoming experience I've had on the net probably anywhere.
So this was only the first day, I've been on the site since the 20th of April. I've been spending probably most of my online time there. It's really nice to see how involved everyone is. Includ

Good day to you all!
Yesterday, I finally picked up my camera again and felt the love for photography as I knew it before. This was a big big relief for me!

I wish you all the best and hope you enjoy these features!

Starting slowly againHello people,
First of all, it's been a while.
It looks like I have finally found my turn again in photography. Did a shoot last week of a local artist and it went really well. Photo's of that should be on deviantart shortly.
I will reply to all of your comments and replies in the coming few days.
I hope you are all doing well!
A feature and features!Whats New?!
Hello good people!
Time for some more features!
As most of us have all encountered, it's hard to combine your life with deviantart. Making it hard to promote your work around here.
That's why I dedicated a feature to craigletourneau
Please show is gallery some love!

Protect yourself against fraudAlthough, as an active member of the community, it's nearly impossible to have missed this huge issue, I think it's very important to warn people for this.
What happened is a large case fraud in which apparently one user (under multiple names) scammed several members of DeviantArt community. Leaving some people as much as $3000 in debt!!! Money they, most likely, never see back.
Even though the user is banned by DeviantArt now, there's no reason why it won't happen again.
After all, the problem is caused by a loophole in PayPal's rules. So basically everybody that's using PayPal for its business (and that's a lot of us) is at risk.
People doing commissions
People selling adoptables
To understand where all of this comes from, it's first of all important to know what a PayPal chargeback actually is.
This video offers a proper explanation of what chargeback is, and what it should

Art Book pre-orders + 300 pt lotteryAbout the point lottery:
To join the lottery all you have to do is +fav this journal. In 48 hours i wil use a randomizer to randomly pick a number from 1 to how many favs this journal got and the deviant who's name corresponds to that number will win 300 points
About the Art Book:
Aaaaaaaand i am officially announcing that i opened pre-orders for my art book
The pre-order stage serves also as an order stage, it's from August 20 2014 to September 20 2014, and it's the only time you can buy my art book. It won't be available in any online store. I will keep 30-50 books to sell at Romanian conventions which are Nijikon, Comic Con and Otaku festival. So if you're romanian or intend to go to these convention then that's the only other time you can buy my art book
Actually this is where the idea to make an art book came from in the first place. To have something that sums up my work since i started digital art, at my stand at conventio
Art and not giving upDear, deviantart fellow artists
As artists we are constantly self-aware and seek for improvement and support. But there are times when it feels like everything falls apart, when things go wrong and doubts overwhelm us.
But we have to stay strong and continue.
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
No one likes to fail. Yet, when it happens, we learn so much. For example – my first “inspiring” journal series where such a failure. But I kept going, as I have always had. As long as I can motivate, help and inspire others, through my journals or art, that’s what keeps me going. Also – things can go wrong all the time – the painting software could crash, ink can get accidentally spilled or It’s possible to unintentionally ruin the painting. It happens. Go through the struggle;

Art / Story / Comic Contest!
Ok, its time for an another contest. It have been some months since the last one, and im sorry for that, that goes to all my followers. Hopefully will I get more active again now. I did think for a long time for the theme for this contest, and I wanted something that's not used to much, but at the same time something everyone can use as an idea for their entry. I hope everyone like it. Its always hard to make a prize list to, that everyone is happy with. Some smaller prizes, and more winners, or a bigger prize, but less winners. Some people thinks "... why should I, I gonna lose anyway.. But wait, as much as 10 entries wins a prize, maybe i should join after all!," and others think "... Only 20$, no

Glitch's Clothing Design Contest (USD Prizes) Introduction
It was nearing time for the new term to begin, and as always, Glitch wanted to change his outfit...
After all, that one got a little wrecked in the tournament. Oops.
And why not? He would be earning his degree in Elementalism the next term, and who wouldn't want to look absolutely STUNNING for graduation? Surely not him, as looking into obtaining interesting clothing for graduation was a high priority.
This is a drawing contest where you design a new outfit for Glitch, the elementalism student teacher of :iconotherworlde:! He tends to change his outfit often and he's looking for a couple new ones to add to his closet. Therefore, your task -- if you choose to accept it -- is to design a new outfit for Glitch to proudly wear in the next term, when he plans to earn his academy degree.
Simply draw Glitch in an outfit of your design and you
