Hello friends,

Since almost at the end of 2012 I stopped posting my work to DeviantArt because I've became an exclusive contributor on Dreamstime stock agency. And there wasn't an easy to disable downloads and prints here on :devart: so I've put all my work here to storage and simply stopped uploading any new work. After a while I realized that it would be nice to have my dA page back and adapt it into something usable with my new situation. Dreamstime agency started to make available new high resolution preview images for both clients (to examine) and contributors (for blogging) and I thought I could use that option to start re-posting my work to :devart: and here we are. I still have my humble blog on keremgogus.com and I think I'll keep posting my work here too to promote them to :devart: audience.

Thanks for your time & patience and have a good day!
Kerem

Hello friends,

Not so long time ago I started working with Dreamstime as an exclusive contributor. I never had any satisfying income with print sales so when I had a chance to go with stock images / photography, I took it. And I love it... It's wonderful to do something you truly love as your profession. 

But being exclusive has its own rules. I shut down my stores on Zazzle and Redbubble which never had any sale - completely deleted my accounts. Here on deviantArt I put everything in storage - that's the fastest way to remove all images from print sales also. But if the images still keep appearing on google image search then I might be terminate my account here too. This is serious this time... Because I don't want any trouble. It's fine to have a portfolio and pages on social sites. It's ok to have a portfolio here too - but I only sell my work through Dreamstime. So if you can't see me here one day, don't panic. I don't know if keeping images in storage can prevent them appearing on image searches (at least after some time passed and cache cleaned) - if it is then I can keep my dA account. 

Again I'm giving the links to my profiles on other social sites, you can add me there if you still didn't...

Hello friends, 

For a long time I'm working hard to earn my life with doing things I love to do. And since Feb 2012 I'm selling stock photos - this is something I really love to do. What I need as help is you to spread the word, share where you like and if you need, purchase any images you want. Let the people you know or working with that they can purchase from my portfolio when they need stock images. 

Besides my genuine desire to earn my life from things I love to do, me and my family probably will need to move house because current apartment we rented probably will be demolished because of the earthquake damage. 

Thanks everyone who taking time to read this journal, I appreciate your help in advance.

I have a one word for the new front page of dA: Hideous

Grid system is gone. I can't find it - please someone show me if it is there. This wanna-be-tumblr or wanna-be-timeline view is nothing but waste of space and more than that, it kills the chance of the new artwork show up in the front page. That might not sound reasonable for some of you - but believe me grid view features more images, offers more selections to the visitor. Gives chance everyone to show on the front page from time to time. I don't see any reason at least for me to scroll down to see what's new that long on that much hideous page and then hit an ugly green show more page. It is totally a waste of precious time.

I don't know if anyone noticed (I'm sure most of you don't) but because of the new uploading page (ugly white) and these hideous changes on the front page, I slowed down sharing my work here on dA a lot. And for a while I'm looking for another art community with similar but better structure.
Hello friends,

Do you know is there a way to batch disable prints? Disabling them from the sale at once instead of editing deviantions one by one?

Thanks in advance...

Q: Can I take your images from your web site and use them where ever I want?
A: No.

Q: Can you work for free?
A: No.

Q: But that could be a great opportunity to make yourself heard out there. Also this is a game project, when game sold you'll be payed. Would you like to consider that?
A: No.

Q: Can I use your images on my book/album/CD cover?
A: No. All my work is exclusively copyrighted by an agency.

Q: Are you available for freelance work?
A: No.
Just joking - but it is true that I deleted my gallery on and started re-uploading entirely and more properly - www.flickr.com/photos/keremgo/
Recently Deviantart goes better and better everyday which is a great thing for me because I always consider this place sort of "home" since my internet adventure started after discovering the forums and social sites.

User name changing option is one of the most greatest thing dA team ever done. Because we grow up and change and become way more self reliant and we had urge to use our real names. And recently...

:bulletred: Uploader works pretty fine for me lately, I hope it works that way for every user out there...

:bulletred: Also the advanced editor of the Journal section (StashWriter) is VERY good...

:bulletred: I also just noticed the new signs/badges after the user name which looks really cute...

:bulletred: Also a "mention" thing added - seems like its inspired from Facebook but believe me so many forums using this name mention thing so its not just deviantart which adopting this function. Actually in deviantArt it serves a great purpose because when someone feature your work on their journal you get notification. It is a great way to connect people even more.

So, way to go dA development team :thumbsup:
I noticed the last journal is standing still and needs an update. So here it is...
I always choose to stay away from tasteless arguments, negative self expressions, pointless accusations, likes that save starving children, baby and cat photos. However what you run away always find you somehow.

Today I'm blocked from comment and like privileges because of a status update I have no relation with. 

SO how this worked?

 By someone I have relation with I added to a certain "Like Page" as a moderator that I have no interest at all. I never approved aggressive status updates by the owner of the page, nor I get involved with any kind of debates and arguments went on in that certain page.

BUT because of being moderator of the page, when the owner posted that aggressive and incriminating status update with a hard language, same Facebook rules applied to me like I myself posted that update. Then I blocked from commenting, writing personal messages back and putting likes for next 12 hours.

Facts are:

  • Never wanted to be a moderator of that page.
  • Never argued with people
  • Never posted an aggressive update
  • Never violated the rules

However same penalty applied to me too. Just liked the owner of the page, I'm blocked from using Facebook fully. This Facebook system is so CORRUPT and so erroneous; it doesn't matter who really posted the updates, if you are moderator of a page you get the same penalty without any question.

Here I came a point of decision and asked myself how long that I'll be a part of this corrupt system. How long that I accept penalty because of the fault of someone else.

Before Facebook in communities like Renderocity, Deviantart and such people exist with their artistic skills and self expression. In Facebook you can exist with baby and cat photos, hate speech and crappy news from mass media. Meanwhile some people like me who prefer to stay away got penalty because the fault of someone else. Facebook is CORRUPT and ROTTEN - this fact will never change.

And I no longer able to relate myself with all of this corrupted and false system. I'll keep my pages just to communicate with close friends for a while, until they get used to reach me through SKYPE, TWITTER, DEVIANTART and GOOGLE PLUS. Then I'll decide what I'm going to do with my Facebook pages.

I wrote this, because Invisible Facebook Administration will never read and reply my report or solve this issue. Keep this in your mind too, it's too crowded to take care of member problems. When something like this happen you'll be all alone.

I guess this is why you can not trust deviantArt...

Renaissance Winners!BLAH

I was the winner of Miramax Renaissance Movie Poster Contest. It was official, it took place here on deviantArt. I won the first place and challenged by many other wonderful and remarkable designs.



And there was a page about it here on deviantArt. Showing the Runner Ups, synopsis of the movie, and quote from the visionary director Christian Volckman. This page linked on the description of my entry. Today I was the movie Renaissance on TV and that woke up my great memories about it. People who loved my design and supported me, people who hated when I won and talked behind my back, people who congratulated me with gnashing teeth. After a while it won a DD and people asked "why?! its already a winner" and attacked to the gallery moderator who choose it etc. It was a lot of fun...




I took a gaze to TV, because I have the DVD of the movie and watched it many times and return to my desk, just clicked my poster here on dA to take a look to that winners page once again. And that is what I saw...

Renaissance Winners!BLAH

To the deviantArt Staff: Maybe you don't give a single f. about these stuff which are important to us (or at least me) but this contest were took place in your website with huge amount of participation. And if you take a look to the professional websites and forums like CG Society - you'll see that they are keeping archive of the past contests and all the pages are still reachable. Because results, notes, comments, participation and everything related to those huge contests are important to everyone who joined them. But as I can see it means nothing but a BLAH to you.

Imagine the naive me giving link to that page without checking it (which I did for a long time) on my portfolio while sending it to a job application. People who considering to hire me follow that link as I'm the winner of the big design contest and that's what they going to see...

Renaissance Winners!BLAH

Congrats on your "great" work once again deviantArt staff... Keep up the good work inventing new money-traps instead of keeping a decent archive of the important events.
