Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.
Journal Skin Commissions - 2 Spots open!UPDATE: Open for two more spots!Journal Skin Commissions - 2 Spots open!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since the poll so far seems to be showing that the majority would rather I open only 1 or two spots and still do both the code and graphics myself, I'll be doing so .
My reasoning for only opening 1 or two is to keep my stress load down to a minimum. I enjoy taking commission work but too much going on at once puts too much stress on my shoulders and I end up wanting to not do any of it at all. So fewer things at a time is better .
I will only be opening two spots for now. These spots will NOT be first come first serve. I would rather find a commission or two I'd enjoy doing than just take what comes and end up unhappy with what i'm creating.
If you would like a Journal Skin commission from me please read below

List of Useful Writing BlogsDon't forget to fave the news article for this list here!List of Useful Writing Blogs5 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
08.02.2012 Oh look, shiny massive update of new writing blogs! Now including poetry and some other interesting bits and bobs, so scroll down and enjoy. I would have added more, but I would never have gotten any sleep at the rate I was going. Ahem. So I've been feeling the itch to post news articles on these writing blogs again, but I'm not sure whether there's enough interest for me to start doing them again. For anyone who's new to this list and what I used to do in the past, here's an example right here: http://julietcaesar.deviantart.com/journal/Useful-Writing-Blogs-1-The-Creative-Penn-214242246 When I used to do them, I actually caught the attention of some of these bloggers on Twitter who thanked me personally for featuring them on deviantART, which was equally surprising and humbling for me. But it's you guys I'm more concerned about. Would you be interested if

Photography Interview: BwaworgaHello all,Photography Interview: Bwaworga10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to an interview with the amazing photographer bwaworga, hopefully some of her words can help inspire you, as they did me
bwaworga is an outstanding portrait photographer based in Indonesia, most of you have likely stumbled upon some of the amazing work she has shared with our community. She is a bright and loving girl, with amazing skill.
1. When did you first start photography, and why?
I started probably around the end of 2009. It's funny actually, me and my family had plan to travel abroad and I was thinking "I have to take good pictures when we travel." Good picture = big camera =dslr, so that's the first time I bought my own camera, a canon 1000D. Of course if I want to get nice pictures I need to learn how to use it.. so I began to search on internet the camera setting, try to understand what ISO, speed and apperture are, and

Street Photography: The Capture vs. The PoseStreet PhotographyStreet Photography: The Capture vs. The Pose4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

Anyways, it's feature time. Oregon style.
