Pay-It-Forward Project

Thank you so much to all the kind donors to my Pay-It-Forward Project! Unfortunately, due to a number of factors, I have decided to end the project (for the time being at least ;) ).

Tutorials for New Deviant Writers

In need of some help?

How to be a guiding light and a shining exampleThis journal was updated in July 2012 to include some new information and replace outdated terminology.
How can I help?
At regular intervals, new faces appear in the Community Relations team as open positions for Community Volunteers are filled. All these new additions to the team can spark interest in volunteering for dA and can inspire people to ask "What can I do to support my favourite gallery?". You don't have to be a Community Volunteers or have a fancy symbol next to your name to promote and support artists within your favourite gallery.  The suggestions listed below are for everyone, and in case you want something a little more useful than just my ideas I've included links to FAQ entries with more information.
Featuring art
To avoid repeating myself, I'd like to point you in the direction of an article called How to promote other people's work on dA that I wrote back in De

So you want to be a CV...Sometimes I like to wander through the communityrelations group, and I always come across comments from people so willing to become volunteers, (and a lot of comments from phoenixleo ._.) specifically in the The Community Relations Team journal, where the opening positions are listed.
To those people: take this journal just as a personal opinion coming from a former volunteer, who currently is just a regular deviant (as in: non-admin of any sort) like you, from someone who, like you, love the community and is willing to contribute and give back the way he can:
I think is great that people is so enthusiastic and passionate about volunteering, it's something that shows. People constantly say "I so would love to help!", "I can't wait to be 18 to apply!", "I so want to be on the team!", there are some who list the complete CR roster in their personal profiles, who openly s

Three Hundred Kingdoms

Hey, everyone! Just posting a little journal about this story I'm working on. Currently, I have no title for it! So I'm referring to it by the continent that it takes place on: the Three Hundred Kingdoms. You can see a collection of all my art on the topic here.

I'm not sure for how long I will manage to keep it up ;) But for now, I'd really love to hear feedback on the story! Whether you like it, what you think could improve, etc.

And, should you need an index to return to, I will keep this chapter list updated :)

Journal History


AzizrianDaoXrak's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
*AzizrianDaoXrak's writing is both fantastical and familiar; it is often something you might expect to find in a legend, sweeping and worldly, yet drawing the focus down to the personal and immediate. I think one of the greatest things about *AzizrianDaoXrak's style is the amount of imagination put into each piece. Some of them feel as if they've been hand-crafted from dreams.

Solarune on behalf of theWrittenRevolution

Every time I read one of AzizrianDaoXrak's pieces I am floored anew. I've been following her work for years, so you'd think I would be used to her tendency towards the amazing, yet she never ceases to surprise me by continuing to improve. Her writing is masterful, lyrical, mythical and unforgettable. Her style is rich and unique, but she is always eager to challenge herself, the result of which is distinct, fresh, enthralling literature that never fails to linger in the reader's mind.


AzizrianDaoXrak's poetry floors me each time I read it. Her way of stringing together letters into words into images into stories is a punch in the gut and it never fails to evoke a response in her readers. She brings a fresh perspective to age-old questions, and she creates new worlds for her readers to explore. It is a joy and an adventure to experience her work.



I'm nearly who I'm meant to be.

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
