Suggest Some Good Art To Me!!










I'm an Admin at SeniorSelections
and I NEED YOUR SUGGESTIONS!!


ALL THE ARTWORK PICKED FOR A FEATURE IS ALSO SUGGESTED FOR A DD!



COSPLAY SUGGESTIONS GUIDELINES

:bulletblack: I prefer that the fandom being cosplayed is a clearly known series (Kill La Kill, Hatsune Miku, etc), or easily inferred from style of dress (steampunk, Victorian, etc)

:bulletblue: I prefer vividness is photography and costume. Suggest something that will blow my socks off!


SPACE SUGGESTION GUIDELINES

:bulletblack: This must be original work! I will not accept rips from ISS Space Station camera, no matter how good it looks.

:bulletblue: As long as it involves something space-related, I'm happy to accept it. This includes tutorials, comic strips, Terraspace digital artwork, etc.


SCIENCE FICTION SUGGESTION GUIDELINES

:bulletblack: Science Fiction may be based on the real world, but it should be removed enough from current reality that the fictional component is easily seen.

:bulletblue: Since Science Fiction can cover so much material, I would appreciate an explanation of why the deviation appealed to you so much in your suggestion note. Help me see the image through your eyes!

:bulletblue: I prefer vividness in the subject matter and medium. Suggest something that will blow my socks off!


HOW TO SUGGEST

Send me a note with a thumb or link to the deviation you're suggesting. Please title your note: "SeniorSelections Suggestion" or something to that effect.

:bulletblack: Please only send your suggestion to ONE person on the SeniorSelections team.
:bulletblack: One thumb or link per note, please. It helps me stay organized.
:bulletblack: I will respond to all suggestions as soon as I have time to read them. If you do not hear from me within a couple weeks, please feel free to send me a poke.
:bulletblack: You can include a blurb about why you feel a piece deserves to be featured, but it is not necessary. Truly good artwork speaks for itself. :)

I AM NOW ACCEPTING ALL SUGGESTIONS FOR

:bulletred: COSPLAY
:bulletred: SPACE & SCIENCE FICTION ART

Muse by exarobibliologist
Muse
MitsukoYumi had this wonderful journal about muses (I'm not in control of my muse), in which she quoted the famous words of Ray Bradbury. My muse was inspired by those words.

Yeah, I just changed my username again.
Not a big change... a small one this time. And I'm sticking with this one!

The reason I changed it was I got my Greek wrong. My username was supposed to be a made up word that meant "I Dig Good Books". I used a bunch of usernames in the past, and when I changed my username 6 months ago I had been using archaeobibliologist (combining archaeology+biblia to sarcastically mean that I dig books).

But then someone called me out and showed me that the Greek word for "to dig" is exaro. I immediately changed my usernames on most sites to exarobibliologist, except I was stuck on dA because I had to wait 6 months to change my username again. It's finally here, and I just changed it...

Now my username can be broken down and translated as follows: exaro ("to dig") + biblia ("book" or "reading") + ologist ("one who")
This properly signifies that I am "One Who Digs Book Reading"

On A Slightly Funnier Note
I changed my Google Account to exarobibliologist too, and I've recently started using it.

Someone asked me the other day for my email, and I spelled the email for her. She got all excited, and asked "Is that your college major!?"
I never thought it sounded that official when I made the word up, but apparently it's official sounding enough that people think it's a real word, and possibly even a real job.

LLAMA'S ARE ALWAYS RETURNED!! Just give me a llama, and you'll get one back. Llama for llama!


Hi, I'm exarobibliologist!

My username is a made up word, formed by combining the Greek words exaro ("to dig"), biblia ("to read", "books", "library"), and ology ("person", "one who"). Put it all together, and I am "one who digs good books", or an exarobibliologist.

I've had several usernames in the past. For the longest time (11 years), I was cypher-neo. My original username had nothing to do with the Matrix, and you can only take so many Matrix jokes before...
I changed my username to archaeobibliologist, which I thought meant "I dig good books", but I got my Greek words mixed up...
So I finally changed my username to exarobibliologist.

Let me tell you a little bit about me:
I am normal person with opinions and feelings, just like everyone else. More specifically, I am an INTJ, with an IQ over 180. As an introvert, I'm very awkward socially, but I do my best to smile at all times, and I have an infectious laugh when amused.

I figure I'll never be remembered for doing anything impressively special in life, but I hope to inspire other people, and to be remembered for all the small things I've helped in.

I am addicted to coffee and hot chocolate. I hate weak coffee!

I'm a professional photographer. I shoot engagements, weddings, nature, fashion, models...

I'm a nerd, and I revel in my nerdity. I give wannabe nerds an inferiority complex.

I'm a book nerd! I usually finish a book or 2 (sometimes 3!) a week. Although I respect the continuity of trilogies, and will read them in order, it's not unusual to find me reading 5-6 books at any given time.

I'm also a Linux nerd! I assist on the Linux Mint and Debian Linux IRC channels. I'm usually tweaking something on my computer, or shell scripting.

I feel I'm better at writing stories than poetry, but sometimes I can't think of the words to say to write longer, so then I write verses. I like vividness of subject in both pictures and literature. I enjoy writing parodies on existing songs and poems.

I'm very eclectic in television and movies. Mostly anime, science fiction, and fantasy, but occasionally I do something from another genre.

I was a MN@ for about a year and a half and I enjoyed every minute of it! Volunteering for deviantART is a wonderful experience and I encourage everyone to try it.

I only take critiques well when it's coming from someone who wants to help me improve. I don't respect criticism from people who give decide that an art critique can also include comments about my parenting, or other similar incendiary subjects. I don't mind getting a negative critique; but when you critique me please do it to help me improve. Don't just bash me...

I am fiercely loyal to all of my friends, and I always stand up for my friends and what I believe in. If someone does or says something that I feel is wrong, I'll respond and, I can be a fierce fighter when I'm needed to be. I will help people unreservedly. If you ever need any help, just send me a note and I'll be glad to assist you as far as possible.

I'm an Admin on SeniorSelections. I select artwork to feature in Cosplay, Science Fiction, and Space galleries. Please send me the suggestions you have for those art types. Any art I select to be featured on SeniorSelections I suggest for a DD.
