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 ;) ). Below you can see a list of all the wonderful people who have been gifted Premium Memberships, and be sure to check out my journal explaining what it was all about!:…
And of course, don't be shy to start up your own Pay-It-Forward Project!

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a guiding light and a shining exampleThis journal was updated in July 2012 to include some new information and replace outdated terminology.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, I constantly come across people who say "Applied for ___ gallery!", "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 say in their tagline, signatures or devIDs "Hoping to be a CV one day", etc. This is specially evident in the The Community Relations Team journal, where the opening positions are listed.
To those people: take this journal just as a personal opinion and a friendly advice from a fellow community member, someone who loves the community and is willing to contribute and give back the way one can. This comes from my personal experience, shouldn't be taken as the whole Community Relations nor deviantArt's official stance.

Infinite thanks to CypherVisor for the tutorials!

My first and most critical question is: whose photograph is that? If it is yours, please tell us! Don't be afraid to brag about it! If ...

Since I've already left the majority of my feedback, I'm pretty much just going to go ahead and break this down with the rating system,...

CSS by Nesmaty

Wow, first thing I've posted in ages and it's going to be this, haha #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
10 years

What does your username mean?
Ummm...I don't remember the full name but Azizrian was supposed to mean "Daughter of Darkness" in a language I semi-invented.

Describe yourself in three words.
Uncertain, loud, excitable.

Are you left or right handed?

What was your first deviation?
Heaven help me... RememberingThe rain flows down my face as I stand hypnotized,
Watching the drops break like glass,
And spray like sparks over the driveway.
The artificial moon
Is blurred, orange, and false,
And perches on the pole like a decrepit bird
And weakly beats back the darkness.
And it reminds me of the moon, the stars of that night,
And as I stand there remembering,
Saltier drops fall to join the rain
That runs away into the sea.

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Writing; poetry or prose 

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital art!

What was your first favourite?
Between Darkness and Wonder by DarknessWonder

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I'm not sure there is one...maybe digital art?

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Nope. Can't tell you just one. Finnguala Ugrik STelari 

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Probably Finnguala ; I think we'd get along famously!

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
DA has been a stable place for me when I've been having a really hard time, several times in the past.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pen and paper!

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
A coffeeshop

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
My first DD 

Read the most recent chapter of Necromancer Exile

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.

Congratulations on the win for the "Written in the Stars" Contest! As the first place winner in the poetry division you have won a critique from me. If you could direct me to the piece you would like to be critiqued, I can begin. :la:
AzizrianDaoXrak Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Thank you so much! ^^

Is it okay if it's a prose piece?
TheTerrorOfTheDeep Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014
Yep! If you could keep it under 3000 words I would appreciate it.
AzizrianDaoXrak Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Okay! In that case I have 1500 words for you.…

This is the first chapter of a book I'm writing; I'm sure there will be some little errors, but what I'm really interested in hearing about is what you think of the story. What do you think of the character, pace, actual series of events. Is Aderyn believable as a character? Do you care what happens to her? Etc. It shouldn't be in TERRIBLE shape in terms of grammar/punctuation, but for now I'm just focused on story stuff and really getting it all out.

Thanks so much ^^ I really appreciate it, and I hope my critique request isn't too tall an order.
