I am now on Fine Art America, where you'll be able to get my art on a lot of other cool products. I have one piece on there now and more to come. See you there! fineartamerica.com/profiles/st…
I've finished University in BA hons Fine ArtAfter a long time and all of that hard work put into education for almost 22 years of my life. I have finally finished education completely. I will be graduating at the end of the year in a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art.
Isolation series so farIsolation is a series of 4 digital pointillism pieces expressing the repetition of daily routine through general images of looking out from closed in environments.
Each dot has been individually coloured in to make up the image.
I am currently working on the other two pointillism pieces, so expect them by the end of the week.
Update: third piece
Started Uni and more | StevenARTifyWelcome to a new update on my life as an artist. First things first, last week I started my first week of the (BA) Bachelor of Arts Honors degree course in Fine Art for the next 3 years.
On this course I will be improving/developing my knowledge and understanding and practical skills of art in these subjects: Painting, sculpture, (Alternative Media: video and photography), printmaking and art theory. I properly start on the timetabled sessions tomorrow. It's lovely that I get Monday's off, although that's for 'Self directed studies', but that just means I can do art at home instead of going into uni to do it. I'm back at the place I studied my foundation degree, so I already knew all of the tutors there and I had recognized some of the 2nd BA students.
There are about 8 (including me) 1st year students in our studio, the studio is shared with the 2nd and 3rd years of BA, so they got the bigger space for now. Got my own little studio space, not fully set up yet!.
I'm backIt's been 6 days since I last wrote my journal about possibly leaving deviantART due to debating whether this is the right platform for my art. I have decided to stay and will resume to what I usually do on here.
Taking a break from deviantARTTaking a long break from this site, because I'm re-evaluating whether this is the right site for my work to be put on. I don't feel like the site caters for my style of work, So this break will hopefully clear my thoughts on this situation. I don't know how long the break will be but I will let you know if I come back.
How I write a storyWhen I was at school about 2007, I once visited the University of Essex on a school trip about IT Computing and what courses they have there.
Our class had a short activity session where we were given a task to write our own short story. The only advice I remember what they gave us was how to write a plot and that except the part where they told us Will Young and someone else attended the University.... moving on!
(These are suggestions that you don't have to follow. If other methods work for you better, then continue with them, if you want).
Think of what genre the plot is going to be for. Consider the main characters (protagonist) and other characters involved if needed. In this order:
End: Consider the end of the story first. This will allow you to consider so many possibilities of how the events get to this end.
Middle: Fill in the middle part of the plot with the main part of the change. if necessary.
Writing problems, or are they?In a previous blog, I mentioned that I wrote a lot of short stories and poetry and they are available in my gallery in dA. These writings were to practise on getting up 'to scratch' on creating stories that can flow.
When I first started trying to write stories. I found it difficult to write without it ending up as poetry. I still don't know how I had this block, I just had to keep writing poetry even though I wanted it to just be a short story. Once I wrote a few pieces of poetry. I got out of this block.
I only seem to write at night and most of the literature is, except when I wrote this short story on a bus. My imagination is more active at night and I'm not exactly sure why, if you have the answer to that question comment below.
I will also write a blog about the problems I have had with writing the Science Fiction novel that I'm working on. Stay tuned! Let me know what you think. Share your opinion.
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
