Milestones and FeaturesIt's been a while...
A few milestones were reached for me in these past few days; namely being on here for two years and reaching 100 watchers. Although I did also get a premium membership and le llama turned white!?
I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my DeviantArt experience so far
You guys are just plain AWESOME
In those past two years I've learnt so much in terms of artistic skills as well as being part of this great community and am so grateful for it. I've met many amazing aritists who have been so inspiring. Thank you everyone so far for this valuable experience and I hope that it will continue to be such a great one and that I can do the same for you guys too.
Here are some features of recent (well sort of) works that I admire.
Tips to find where your art is being usedGood day everyone!
I know I haven't been posting lately, but I'm still around.
Today I want to share a way to find out how and where your artworks are being used around the internet by using the Google image search engine.
To do this, simply go to the Google images webpage.
Beside the search bar there is a little camera icon.
Click on it and it will prompt you to either paste the url of your selected image or to upload it.
If you are checking a deviation, right click on the deviation and click "copy image url".
Then simply paste it into the prompt box.
I was actually really suprised at how effective the search was.
Previously I saw a site that had a (likely) stolen artwork that I really liked printed onto t-shirts. I used the above method to find the real creator of the work and was pleasantly suprised when it actually managed to direct me to the original artwork (which I faved here on dA :

Setting: Sometime during the Bay films
Characters: Optimus Prime
We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co

the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
Keep in Touch!
