11 years may be itA few days ago I hit 11 years on deviantART. Due to some circumstances in my life I may be storing some art from this account, or bringing the account to a total close. I haven't decided yet, it depends on the outcome of some big things and when I know I'll tell you, and it'll make sense. For now, you can see more of my mermaid stuff on https://www.facebook.com/pages/Raina-the-Halifax-Mermaid/183327321702019 and on my page :iconrainamermaid: I may just change the name on this account and use it strictly for nudes/my photography. I derno! Point being the mermaid stuff at the very least will start being moved (most of it is already on the other account anyway)
thanks for all the support for 11 years. Pretty trippy!
Too much junkI've been here over a decade, and I was always a pretty active user. But I find myself using the site less and less because I just can't stand getting through the insane amount of junk on here. Screen caps, art theft, sexualized minors, memes etc. Report it, and nothing ever happens, and when it does it's 6 months to a year later. It's disgusting. Yep, I get there's a LOT of content on DA but I get tired of that excuse. If you're going to be an art site, be a damn art site. :/
I closed my stock account. And I mainly use my mermaid account now, just so I can redirect people to the websites where I am more active.
I just feel like DA has become too junky for my time or any effort :/ it's too bad. I really used to feel like the site was on the forefront but it's faded away.
Join me on reddit + closing my stockHey folks! I am doing an Ask me Anything on reddit !! So if you'd like to ask this mer a question, please post on the thread. You can join if you don't have an account very easily. http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1pscl3/iama_professional_mermaid_ama/
Also at the end of November I'll be closing my stock account :iconraine-angelstock: so if you want to use something, use it now!
Being a Mermaid Keeps me busyHey folks, I know I rarely update anymore... and I apologize. I'm so thankful for all your support... but I am so busy being a professional mermaid. It's really been crazy, and if you don't already follow me on facebook, please do so. (click for link!)
I am hoping to do some work with my great friend :iconericbb: this winter, so for those of you who follow me for that work, you'll have something to look forward to!
It's been a busy year, and if you didn't know already I published a book. You can see some info at www.makemeamermaid.com and if you feel so inclined as to buy it, use coupon code FAST5 for 5% off (even ebook!) However I am no longer doing signed copies That was limited and the site needs to be updated. Book 2 is around the corner, it'll be based more specifically on my experiences this past year with lovely photos, less of a "how-to".
We also published a calendar for the purpose of rai

2000 watchers + a Decade on DAI did not realize I have 2000 watchers. Nor did I realize I passed my DA Birthday, and I've now been here for A DECADE. Holy. Crap. I was a blissfully ignorant teenager 10 years ago. I still remember the summer a friend showed me DA. So many crazy things have happened since then. Like, my mermaid world for instance. I just passed 4000 fans on my FB page. Please give me a like there if you haven't already: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Raina-the-Halifax-Mermaid/183327321702019
I'm not really sure what else to say. I still do a lot of photos, but their more personal and not something I think the majority of the internet would enjoy to see. I have learned a lot about underwater photography. I may do 1 nude shoot this year, I derno, I weigh like 40lbs more than I did 10 years ago haha it's a little harder to get up the nerve you know? I don't draw anymore, my hands tremor too badly. I play guitar once in a while. I really just spend all my time on my mermaid company. It's like I finally f

10 ways to become more productiveDear, deviantart fellow artists
It's difficult to feel motivated and stay focused on our goals all the time. But how to achieve what we want, how to not let procrastination stand in our way?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Set goals
Think about your ultimate goal - what is that matters to you the most, what would make you incredibly happy and excited. Write that down and work your way through to it. It will be the reason, the reminder for you to look forward in those times, when you'll feel less motivated.
Try to write also weekly, monthly and yearly goals - be reasonable and realistic regarding that, but don't be afraid of challenges. They have to be S.M.A.R.T. - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
2. Plan tasks in previous day

Your goal for this contest is to create a piece of art, with a specific story in mind. It can be your story, the story of someone you know, it can be fictional, it can be short, it can be sad, it can be ha

I just want to say you are a wonderful friend, thank you for being there when I need it most. You have an amazing style of artwork and even a great taste in movies and shows! Have a great day.
EpicPrincessofDoom and AquarianRoyalty are amazing people overall and deserve so much love! They are both cute and smart, with talents of their own.
EpicPrincessofDoom is very special to me because she is one of the first people I met on this site. Despite my flaws, and my stupid roleplaying, she's always up for being nice and has a large, and funny cast of amusing characters! She is also really cute sounding, and is overall a good person to be around. Don't let mean people keep you down, go for the crown my Australian cutie! 38)
AquarianRoyalty is the queen of rarepair ships. Be it Ararezi, Equius x everyone (especially the bby Rose Lalonde), or pale Erirezi, this girl has it! She attracts an array of fun and friendly people, so defs check her out! She has a lot
