Uh? Yes, DeviantArt has gotten a new look to it and I have already been pretty vocal about how I don't really agree with the new logo. In my opinion, DA has let go of the old symbolism of DA as a whole and settled on a more, unfinished, incomplete look.
The old logo was a frame and had a sort of unison look to it wherever it popped up; this new one looks squiggly like some sketch-lines that're just... there. I can't, for one, picture myself using it as a watermark...
That said, I'm sure I'll come to accept the new logo, as I accept pretty much anything about DA (else, I would have no business sticking around here) but whether or not I will actually "like" this thing, only time will tell.
Okay, so that's about it; I hadn't written a Journal in a month, so thought it'd be fun to slap on some update to bring in the new "Deviantness" though nothing's really new.
I've been getting back into the swing of painting again, mostly because I felt that the photo-painting exercise, was too fun not to continue; that said, it was far more complicated than just dusting off the old tablet again - man am I rusty.
I have also, since come to reject using photos as direct references in my work; its fun and cool for a few pieces here and there maybe; but the look is too far distant from the plastic, artificial and stylized look I want to go for. I'm trying to paint some realism for practice, but its... just not me.
You'll get to see the results later this week and there are more works down the line as I work myself up towards tackling my graphic novel again...
So; that's it for me, oh... yeah; how's everyone else doing?
I'd like to hear from you my internet homies!?
shush I know I know, I said I wouldn't call you that like ever again, but it was just a slip of the finger. Shhhh, hush, all is good now, all is well... sleeeeeeeep
