I seriously can't seem to find anything that really speaks to me in the css profile decor. :/ When I do its broken. The votes came in and the poll stated people wanted to see a blue theme. Fantasy was second so I thought I'd combine the two. Even the one I made while really cool, for some reason it isn't speaking to me doesn't seem to feel right. :/ If anyone if willing to pitch ideas I'm game. I don't have money or points to spare since we are saving up for super-group, but if anyone is willing to create something for me I will definitely advertise you on my profile! A permanent spot on my widget and a journal feature, and also advertise you in my group :iconnetwork-with-us.
I'm honestly not sure what widgets to keep up or which to take down. I know a lot of people say to leave the profile sparce, since it seems to be the new trend on here, but it feels weird to me. I grew up in an old fart generation where you had to sell yourself. XD I guess while sparce forces you to check out their gallery out of curiosity. It is a potential for hit and miss so having something up to showcase seems like a must. First impressions are vital, in work, play, and art. In everything, unfortunately its what defines us. A study came out a while back while I was working my first job out of high school. I took this seminar that our local DWS was offering. It would seem in a literal 7 seconds a person makes their first initial impression of you. This is why its important in the workforce to be clean and professional.
Seems like a lot to live up to, when it comes to marketing yourself as an artist online. I guess I want my profile to be is honest, clean, professional, and speak volumes about what I love and what I'm doing. That is why I posted a potential for fantasy and my story theme in the poll, favorite colors...etc.... I guess what I'm saying is even though anonymity is important online for safety, I still want to be me, not be like the trend I see these days. A lot of people use their online presence to make a new persona. I just want to be myself. I think I spent too many years in my childhood and in high school trying to invent a new me and not wanting to be me, running like we all do at certain times in our lives. In simplest of terms I guess I feel like people don't need to lie to cut it. :/ (Holy cow, I think I grew up.... XD Just kidding I grew up along time ago this wasn't overnight... I just like poking fun at myself.)
If you are curious as to what I am doing I am working on a piece in Gimp right now. I am being kind of slow though, so apologies. I'm a mom so I have a great excuse. Anyway, if you guys want in on the process here is my sta.sh link in a small journal. Here's Your Chance To Get In On The Action! While I am not very good at digital art yet. I would rate myself a novice at best. I would love your guys' input from time to time. I also created a poll here: ladyseshiiria.deviantart.com/j… for potential color palettes. So if you haven't voted yet, go do it!
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Sorry this one was a bit long.
