"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!

I'm not always active in this lovely site, I know.. and it's sad because, I lost contact to deviant-artists that I made friends with before. Many of them have their accounts closed down. But.. One of the reasons why I have the urge to check in on my account is because I want to reminisce and reflect. Also, I want to "change my image" in this site.** I looked at my old journals, drawings, and photos that I took before and obviously they are mostly sad, depressing, and painful. As I checked on them, I cannot help but cringe and feel overwhelming embarrassment. I can't help but ask myself, "Was I really this annoying, desperate, and negative?" As I check on newer and newer artworks, the themes of my works get a little better and better and more colours are added. But it is funny how majority of my works are still about my lonely, dark past.
The beautiful part of this little journey in my small gallery is that I mostly do not remember how the ideas get in my head, but suddenly they are drawn on paper. There are some works that make me suddenly say, "Wait, I drew this?" And that's what made me reflect deeply because I see that this site is more than just sharing your art and talent and getting a lot of attention. It is also about self-expression. It is interesting how I see my gallery as my life story. It started as a 13-year-old teen who is all depressed and heartbroken mostly because she does not want to move out from her beloved country, to living a life of pretense, to becoming empty, but desperate for love, to suddenly becoming an optimistic Jesus-freak! It does sound so random, but I also realized how becoming an artist can be a journey. Personally, I still don't know what kind of artist I am: a comic artist? A painter? A photographer? But through art, I was busy trying to find ways just to express myself that I didn't know I was making an interesting story through my works.
Now I bet that all artists, if not most, may look back on their past works they had done and feel as if they are looking at pictures in a photo album. And suddenly realize that they just created a story through images (or for writers, through the emotions poured in their stories). **Now, going back to my purpose of "changing my image" here, what I meant is to keep on drawing, painting, and capturing photos in order to continue the story that I have already started. Obviously, I am way different than how I was years ago. NO more heartbreaks, homesickness, depression and emptiness. But majority of my works still give off a sad message. So I want people to see and know the 'new' me. I am expecting and maybe everyone else may be expecting to see more colorful works and optimistic images in my gallery.
So, bottom line: A new chapter in an artist's life means new themes of their works that may reflect their life, emotion, or inspiration. And through an artist's works, s/he is making her or his true self known.
