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 :
IowaIf you visit Iowa,
you'll call her fields empty,
but she wasn't born that way.
A part of her was carved out
when she was ripped between Virginia
and the purple mountains of New Mexico.
Her gold hair, she tore it out when she realized
it didn't make her a princess.
She laid her locks strung along every road
leading somewhere else.
White hairs on her cheeks
are scars from winter.
Her hair darkens with the dampness
of summer rains.
The storms are never silent,
but neither is life when there's a tear
in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
is if I hate myself harder than she cries.
She just wants to fly
and I want to bus or train,
not because I fear death, but because
I want to take living slow.
It's the only way I ever feel.
From the air it's hard to watch Earth's hips move.
But Earth can't compare to the country.
That's my girl.
Full grown even when harvesting season's j
