Calling all Watchers and Friends!

Thu Oct 18, 2012, 12:30 PM
Features! features! Would you like to be apart of the FIRST ever feature I'll have done? Say yes! and respond to the journal or note me with three of your  latest / best works and I'll post a feature on them and you.

Are you new to DA? New to my watchers list? Looking for some exposure? I'll glad help by posting your features on my journal, and keep them up for one week at a time. I offered this in my last journal, but I think it got lost behind the drama of things that were going on at the time.

Primarily I'd be looking for Photomanipulators, but that doesn't mean I won't accept other works either! Even literature! (I'm a poet and a writer myself :) )). Let me help you get that bit of extra exposure to other artists out there. Especially if you're just starting DA and aren't so sure how to increase your page views, perhaps this can help :).  Page views aren't the end all and be all, but it does gain more exposure for your work, and in turn could bring recognition by peers for the work you do.

I've never done a feature before. Not because I'm against them, but because 1 - never had enough time and 2 - I had a hard time choosing just a few, and was afraid I'd hurt someone's feelings by leaving them out. But, This way I'm posting what you want to have shown. I may even post it in a news article if I'm daring enough!

I'd love to help out however I can. So please let me! And this will be on going, not just for a certain number of people or just a one time thing. I will keep reminding people to send me their thumbs so I can continue to help in whatever way I can.

Also, if anyone has any questions for me, regarding how I do my art, techniques or something else, please do not be afraid to ask. I'll take note of the questions and answer them in a journal so others can read. I'm not the best manipulator out there and I have a lot to learn myself, but sharing techniques and methods, or understanding choices behind the art we do can help us become more united I believe.

So go ahead, pose your questions and send me your thumbs! I'm ready and willing to jump in!

Karen.

Anger Update and Features

Mon Oct 15, 2012, 10:50 AM
First of all I'd like to thank EVERYONE who shared their opinions with me on my last journal entry Titled - Anger.  The link I was referring to no longer works so I can only assume it has been taken down. I don't know if other people shared my thoughts and spoke up, OR if it was removed after my comment. I must reiterate something however. The anger I felt was toward the post itself. Not directed at the CV personally. I was upset with the content and how it seems the same people are constantly receiving accolades over and over again. I was angered by the term Clique and how DA is a popularity contest. The post itself seemed to imply that which I though was against the wishes of most DA participants and CV's. I do not believe DA should be this way.  As an art community it should be an open forum for all artists to gain some recognition, not "cliques"of artists. If that makes sense. But as said by others unfortunately it's the way the cookie seems to crumble. There are many artists out there who aren't recognized for the work they do, and this saddens me. I fully understand the CV in question does in fact a lot of work in the Photomanipulation community. I have no issues with her and what she does for photomanipulation. She volunteers her time, and effort to try to create a bountiful community of similar artists, which in itself is a difficult job. My opinions spoke were of one particular article out of many written by the same CV, whom I've had no problems with before.

It was however wonderful to see comments that supported my issue. I was actually scared to log onto DA today for fear of having created a shit storm, which wasn't my intent. I was worried there would be massive drama caused by my words, and it wasn't my intention to create such a thing. People can voice their opinions, that is why these are OUR journals. I shouldn't feel scared to write about what I feel, and yet I do. I'm a very sensitive person who wears her heart on her sleeve, and once in a while I do need to speak out. The article no longer visible hit a nerve and I can see by responses that other people feel like minded in such things.

Anyhow, to help further those of you who deserve more face time, and recognition for your hard work, I'm going to do a feature (Yes, me -- a feature, which is very rare from me because I'm usually afraid to upset someone by missing them out ! ). But I want you to volunteer yourselves. Reply to this journal entry with three of your artworks (thumbs) and over the next few days, weeks, I will feature them several at a time. It's not much but it is something I -can- do within my power to help other artists gain some recognition. Unfortunately, I'm not as "famous" or popular as other photomanippers, but it's face time for you, and a way for me to help out! Pick three thumbs of works that you feel deserve more favs and perhaps this may just give you the extra aid to gain more watchers, whom I prefer to call "art appreciators". Though this isn't about numbers per se. It's about being out there, visible enough to be recognized.

Anyhow, Peace for now. And thanks again for taking the time to read, and comment on my previous post. It is truly appreciated and I enjoyed reading your opinions.

Anger..

Sun Oct 14, 2012, 8:11 PM
I'm Angry.

I'm incredibly angry at the moment. I was reading this post - fav.me/d5hw1j6 and I became angry.

I never say much. I don't create drama, nor do I want any part of it. I keep to myself for the most part, tossing out on occasion comments and responding to journals. But this post.. this entry made me very upset.

I read it and felt that all of us, as a community were neglected save a few who were mentioned. People talk about cliques and such in the photomanipulation world, and deny it. When right before you, a clique was given. Names offered out -- mentioned pointedly for being as good as they are, for the best of the best.

So maybe my pageviews aren't a high. Or maybe my 7 years on DA means little. Maybe others of us out there don't achieve thousands of favs in one day. That isn't the majority of us trying to make something of are art. We are all unique. We are all creative in our own means.. We are all beautiful in our own right, offering to others what the last person couldn't, or didn't do. To separate us from the masses it to make us feel worthless. Meaningless. I work hard to achieve perfection with my art. It doesn't mean I am any less qualified as the last person. There are those of us who do what we want, when we want. Not because its popular, but because it is what is in our hearts. It doesn't mean we are any less than those mentioned by the CV.

I'm angry at the post in general. Maybe I'm reading it wrong. Maybe I'm being a hater, but I do not like so many people being ignored for the amazing work they do. There are those who are far superior in skills, with far more to offer and I'm not saying I'm one of them. I'm talking in the pieces of work I fav. The art I see every day. There is a clique and that much is obvious. One can tell who is on your friends list and who isn't by reading the article written.

Why does this bother me so much? Perhaps I'm feeling passionate tonight. I'm tired of being made to feel like my work, or others whom truly deserve it, isn't good enough. Art is objective on the whole. Cliques are so high school. I thought we got away from that. From being the popular group, to those less popular but who are equally talented, or offer something completely different. I struggle to put my art up every day for fear of recompense. Now I know why.

I'm sorry if this makes no sense and I'm picking out stuff that isn't there. But this really touched a nerve with me. I've never been so vocal in my entire time on DA. Today though, I couldn't not be. I am who I am. As we all are.

I have been InertiaK on here for the last seven years. In the art verse, most people know me as InertiaK. Though with a more focused effort on my art, my prints and of course, my website where I list my services, everything else is under my true name. Though my website is called Enchanted Canvas.

So, I'm stuck between retiring the name InertiaK, and changing it to either Karen Koski OR to Enchanted Canvas. I'd like my name to be out there and more associated with my art work than InertiaK, but I also want people to know my website ..

What do you think? What would -YOU- do in this situation? Just curious! xD

  • Mood: Love
I just spent a good portion of the day going through my DA folders, arranging and re-arranging and deleting some of my older works. I was well into the 500's in terms of deviations, so I figured it was best to cut back a little! I chopped of almost half of it so it's a little more manageable now. I must say, I reminisced about each piece before I hit the delete button. ( I do have backups of everything, so I still have the images on harddisk :) ))  If felt good though to clear some of the clutter. I've arranged things now so that in the larger folders, they are separated in years. What shows is 2012. The folders within the folders are the earlier years of my art career which images that were common enough to still gather favs, despite the cobwebs formed upon them.

In other news, Fall is coming, that is no surprise and while I've been able to put out some images, I find my creative juices aren't flowing as well as I'd like. I feel stifled for some reason, though I can't explain why. I'm also letting the "popularity" of DA get to me, WHICH I KNOW, I shouldn't do but it's there. A nagging feeling. I see people with thousand favs with images they've put up in the same time as one of my images which may get 30 or so lol. I don't know how people do it >.> I've been here seven years, but my time has been split over the years, due to my many bouts of ARTIST BLOCK. I feel inconsequential at times with my art. But I have to keep reminding myself that it isn't about popularity at all. It's about what makes me happy. I just wish I wasn't so competitive!

One of these days I'll get to doing a feature. In all my years on DA, I've never done one. I'm a slacker. Again I don't know where people find the time to sort out images, then put all the thumbs up nice and organized in their journals. I have a hard time choosing between which ones to put up most of the time.

My Friend :iconangeliastocks: has put out a new group for Autumn Lovers - So I'm spreading the word to get some members over there. I know all my watchers and friends are great artists and would love to contribute! LOL -- the group is :iconautumnlovers: -- Check it out when you've got the time and join up.

Finally, I've opened an account with Shadowness -- just to get (hopefully) more exposure to my art. My account if you wish to follow me (and I'll follow in return!), is shadowness.com/InertiaK. See you there!

Peace :)

I've finally given in to the powers that be, and worked on my Facebook page. www.facebook.com/enchantcan .   I've been fairly quiet about it because I generally had it linked to my website (enchantedcanvas.com) but I've decided to upload images to Facebook directly so fans who aren't on DA can see them also.

So, for my watchers out there, if you would like to add my facebook page to your "likes" if you are interested in updates, blogs from my website, tips and tricks that come along when I have time, I would love to see you there! In exchange leave me your Facebook Pages and I'll like them too!

Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/enchantcan

Thanks to all my watchers and fans/supporters of my artwork. You mean so much to me, for without you, I am nothing when it comes to art. Your constant support enriches my life every day.

I finally received some money from my Prints I've soled H E R E . I've actually had some good success and sold over Christmas at least 10 prints! I'm very happy about this, - to learn that people enjoy my art enough to purchase it, to place it upon their wall or to give as a gift to friends and such. To think, my work could be in someone's living room!

As a treat, I've extended my membership at DA for another 12 months. This way I don't have to worry about anything for the whole year, especially with an impending move coming up. New house is picked out, offer made and now conditions have to be met, ie - selling my current home.

I can't wait for things to just fall in place, and if all goes well I'll be in a brand new place (well, new for me) out east, in a small tiny village, populations 600! I can't wait for the peace and quiet of nature. Who knows maybe I can set up my own gallery out there! xD (dreams....)

Anyhow, as always I end my journal with many thanks to friends and watchers. To those who support me and enjoy my art. I do not get enough time to thank everyone individually, but please know that in your hearts is a hug from me, expressing my sincerest thank you. Feel the energy as you read this post, and know its true!

ttfn!

Sincerely from the bottom of my heart, I truly thank you for such a wonderful gift of a 3 month membership on DA! I wasn't sure how I was going to deal with so little images at my fingertips (as they are so very limited when you don't have membership!). This keeps me inspired and I wish I had something in return to offer you!

:icontoddparis: --- Thank you so much.
  • Mood: Love
Well, peeking on here this morning, I noticed my Premium membership expired. I thought I still had time as I purchased 3 months previously. I cannot believe the time has gone by so fast!!!

Now, I have to wait before I can regain such a privilege as my paypal is like a desert, barren and empty. I have work coming in still, but things have been extremely tight. The house is on the market and I'm looking at starting "over" in another part of the province (Ontario), moving about 5 hours east or so, toward Quebec. Its been a long time coming and I hope this change will be a good one, both mentally and emotionally.

I still suffer from depression and major anxiety. Some days are harder than others. Today - is a good day. I feel spring in the air and its lightened my mood. Tomorrow could be altogether different. There is just no telling. My treatments are still the same, and the long hiatuses I have taken are when my moods are so low, I can''t even create! I''ve struggled to work with a muse who is both mean and strict lately! Not helping as I would like, so I switched and done various mediums, focusing on my painting, rather than photomanip, and then some 3D again. Anyhow, hopefully soon something good will come of it!!!!! My Masterpiece!

I still recieve many requests, msges and notes. As well as favs. I just do not have time to answer everyone right away, its simply gets out of hand at times. Even with deviations getting back up. But I assure you, I do look at your work and view it. I'd like to thank everyone who has and continues to support me. I love DA and its community. I am surrounded by wonderful people who watch, and who take the time to comment. I wish there was something more I could give in return, but my heartfelt thanks will have to do!

Anyhow, heard a beautiful Lisa Gerrard song this AM and I do believe I'm inspired at the moment. Best to take advantage of it while I can!!!! xD

To all who recently wished me happy birthday! - Thank you so much for your kind support and appreciation!

It was wonderful to come here and see all the well wishes. Really made my day!  It truly did :)

And to my watchers and friends who brought me such joy, I am dedicating the following piece to you all. A colorful, warm, love -- based on a photo of me (reference). I am happy today and it reflects in my work!

Hello Confidence!??

Wed Apr 27, 2011, 10:03 AM
Well, I'm working hard on getting my muse back but everything I've done lately, I've been so disappointed with! I upload images I think I'm done with but when I look at them once they are uploaded, I delete them immediately! My absence on here is noted also, due to the fact that a number of people who use to follow me, no longer "hang around" either -- so it feels as if I'm starting back at DA all over again, working my way through the millions of masses to have my art seen.

And yes, that seems rather petty, I know :(   I don't do art for popularity, but it is wonderful to read comments, see the favs and get feedback or critiques. Though I found with critiques, one rather hurt me the other day (I'm way overly sensitive to such things). I had forwarded one of my images to a Club, and it was declined because it wasn't "advanced" enough for the group. Talk about a kick to the stomach! It only served to add to my doubt and nervousness about putting up any work I do.

When did I lose my confidence!? Has anyone seen it? It's been missing for a while now :(

Anyhow, THANK YOU TO ALL my WATCHERS and FRIENDS who do take the time to fav and comment. I realize life is very hectic (trust me, I battle this too!) and to take the time and fav, or even leave a few words means a lot to me. You've taken the time to notice my work and I wish I could repay you all in massive hugs and thanks, every time! But for now, a BIG HUGE GROUP HUG to you all, with lots of love from me, going out to you! :heart::hug::love:

Enchanted Spring Sale!!

Mon Mar 21, 2011, 7:04 AM
Happy Spring everyone! I, for one, am so very glad that this date is here. I'd be even more so if the weather cooperated xD

In honor of the season, I've reduced prices on my background packs, and individual backgrounds. All individual backgrounds on Enchanted Canvas are now just $1.00. !

All background packs are now just $5.00!

:thumb198975186: :thumb198976388: :thumb198975642:
:thumb198608405: :thumb198607604: :thumb198607399:

I've spent a lot of time and effort in to creating something beautiful and hopefully unique enough to compliment your manipulations and art projects. Well worth more than the $1.00. I've given a lot of free backgrounds in the past, and I'd love to continue to do that, however situations at home have placed me into a position where I need to -sell- my art.

The proceeds of the funds will go toward Therapy I need to take (Cognitive Behavoir Therapy), which I've been on a waiting list for over a year  and a half, and still waiting. With the funds, I'll be able to pay for therapy, instead of having to wait any longer and work on getting better overall.

As some of you know I've suffered from Severe melancholic Depression for about two years now, along with severe anxiety and insomnia. Tied in with this, I also have S.A.D and am now "labeled" chronic drepressive. My life has been turned upside down to say the least, from not being able to work at my regular job among other things. So please be assured the funds from sales are going to a good cause.

So please, spread the word about this wonderful backgrounds and packs which can be used for both commercial and personal projects you may have.

Thank you in advance for supporting my art!

BEYOND PISSED OFF!!!

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 28, 2011, 6:58 AM
OH MY GUCKING GOD, my website has been hacked TWICE in as many weeks. It was hacked by some dude "ALI" -- who deleted everything and I had to start from scratched. I'd only JUST finished getting it back on track and BHAM, some fucking idiots go and HACK it again.

I'm so pissed off! I've spent hours creating, working on it, uploading, posting -- ALL of it and people just go and fuck up a site. WHY!? What does my website have to do with anything?? Why is it important to screw up someone's hard work and effort.

I'm beyond mad -- I'm in tears. I feel violated and picked on - as if I've done something terrible someone has to come into my place, my little website that is home to my art and services and destroy it.

Am I NOT allowed to have a website??? Am I not allowed to showcase my art, my own personal space??? I have items on there for sale, packs and such which go to help my living expenses as I'm still not WORKING and off sick. This is just terrible.. I can't believe someone would do this to me, not just once but again and again.

Hey everyone! Sorry it's been so long - I've been MIA, with limited net connection and even mobile, I couldn't update journals or respond to anything. I'm home for a few days, then I'm off again so the next few weeks will be very sporadic for me. I'm doing my best to view your works, but I've over 4,000 deviations to check atm ><.

Anyhow, I am well and alive. I'd like to thank all my supporters for continuing to watch, fav and comment on my artwork, and for the kind folks who let me know that someone was using my Artwork as their own, on Facebook. They have been reported for copyright infringement. Grr!

Other than that, I've got a few pieces I'm working on and should have completed over the next day or so while I'm at home. So new artwork coming sooooon!

Hope you are ALL well and if I've missed anything important - let me know! Like your birthday or something equally special! :heart::hug:

Bears, trees, lakes and mosquitoes!

Here I come!

Yes, it's time for my annual venture into the bush and nature to find myself again. My yearly sabbatical outdoors to deal with everything Mother Nature has to throw at me. I'm leaving shortly and I'll be gone for about a week!

This means I'll be more far behind than I already am!!!!

Few quick things before I dash.

THANK YOU TO YOU ALLLLLLL ! All of those who wished me a happy birthday, thank you so much for the warm wishes and love! Much appreciated! While getting older isn't necessarily a "fun" thing, it was certainly "loved". I'd also like to make note of :icontart-naived: who also celebrated his birthday just the day before. I know there were others too, so Happy Birthday to those I've missed.

I also must say THANK YOU to :iconsincarnato: who so generously purchased me a YEAR subscription for my birthday present. MUCHO LOVE :blowkiss: coming your way, Mister. It was trulllllly appreciated and the greatest gift! One I shall remember for a long time!

Finally I JUST got word that I won the :iconthe-love-of-elves: Galadriel contest with my Galadriel rendition! I'm so honored and flattered, sincerely. They haven't announced it yet, but I got word ahead of time and well, gee.. THANK YOU!

Wow.. lots of stuff to say not enough time to do so. I'll be thinking of you guys next week as I have NO access to anything online at all! a total break. So exited as I need this and I adore nature... it's good to be out there again.

:love::cuddle::blowkiss:
