PE: Careers in Vector GraphicsWhere Can Vectors Take You?PE: Careers in Vector Graphics3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Any vectorist will tell you that there is a lot of personal satisfaction in creating vector art. Because it's not the simplest of mediums to work with, most vector artists will take great pleasure in finishing a piece and being proud of their work, even in the beginner stages. Personally I also find great joy in watching other vector artists complete a piece, knowing how much work went into it.
But what else can vectors do for us?
If you decide to take your vector knowledge and skill into the workplace, there are many avenues and careers that Vector artists can embark upon.
Freelancing Being a Freelance Vector artist can take you in many directions, leaving your possibilities wide open to different opportunities. One week you might find yourself designing a logo or branding elements for a new company. The next week you might be designing a larger than life billboard. You might set your sights on
An IMPORTANT NOTE to all artists!Please read this if you are someone who offers commissions, or someone who KNOWS anyone who offers commissions, cares about anyone who offers commissions, etc. etc. etc. This is both a warning against certain types of people who would take advantage of you, as well as a reminder about why it's important to be aware of your own worth as an artist and the services you are offering to others! I also hope it's helpful to those who do not make art, and like to buy commissions, as it may give you some insight about how to not be offensive to the artist who is doing work for you.An IMPORTANT NOTE to all artists!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Without naming any names (but if any of this gets personal on the other side of it, this will become a PSA against taking commissions from specific folks, so let it be known that I tried to play nice out the gate), someone I know recently took a commission for what is, in my opinion, an INCREDIBLY low amount of money. What they were offering was worth way more, quality-wise as well as content-wise, than what w

Inspiration PostingI was sent this note in private and I'm leaving out the sender's handle on dA unless they want me to add that information. Just so I don't accidentally embarrass them or anything. Here was the question.Inspiration Posting2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm doing a report on how various authors/artists/directors/etc get their inspiration for creating things. So, if I may ask, what gets you inspired for your stories, where do you get your ideas? Thanks in advance, [Name omitted for privacy]
Now first of all, I referred them to one of my essays I'd written some time ago entitled "How I Write", which gets into some of these things but here's something more specific to inspiration itself, which I only touch upon briefly in that essay.
I'm almost three years removed from that essay, so my perspective has changed a lot in intervening period.
I follow a cycle which I've often described in various ways. But you can break it down into the Accumulation part and Expulsion part. Probably could come up with better terms on both sides but I w
Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-ConNo matter how tired your feet are by what is actually Day 5 of Comic-Con, counting Preview Night, no matter how exhausted your body and empty your wallet, there's always a bit of sadness in the air when the last few hours of Comic-Con wind down.Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and

CharacterLast night I was watching Barbie: Princess Charm School. Despite how unnatural the plot went, there was something that interest me. Its story revolves around a beauty school, school to develop princess' characters. Yet, it taught its students how to walk, to dance, and to dress properly. At first, I was like, "whoa-? What does that have to do anything with the character?" but then I remember one of the books about animation that I read. Characters show up in an object's gesture. That's it! Characters and gestures.Character2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Someone's gestures give much information about a person. Both their emotions and their character. Try this! Walk straight, chin up, smile, and focus on what's ahead, just like some models you see on a catwalk. Believe me, to walk like this takes a lot of confidence. Or else, try to walk with shoulder slumped, frowned, and eyes wandering. When I tried to walk like this one, I feel so insecure, unhappy, and all.
Do not stop there! Try this with your characte

Hari ini Sir Eden hendak pergi ke Kota Maple untuk suatu keperluan. Ia biasanya akan mengajak serta putrinya, tapi kali ini tidak. Henry tidak mau ikut. Ketika ditanya kenapa, gadis kecil itu menjawab dengan tenanganya, "Tidak Papa. Aku mau melihat-lihat dulu seperti apa Kota Beringin. Nanti kalau sudah mengenal kota ini lebih dekat, aku akan mengunjungi Kota Maple", janjinya.
Kedua ayah beranak itu baru saja pindah ke Kota Beringin, meninggalkan Edenshire tempat mereka tinggal sebelumnya. Henry sendiri masih merasa terlalu asing dengan Kota Beringin, sehingga dia memutuskan untuk melihat-lihat terlebih dahulu sebelum mengenal kota lain di sekitarnya. Sifat dewasanya memang sudah tumbuh sejak ia kecil. Sir Eden pun sudah terbiasa dengan perlakuan putrinya yang jauh terlihat dewasa dibandingkan dengan usian

AwesomesauceI took my sister through a drive-thru for some ice cream tonight. While we were waiting for our order, I noticed the lady in the car behind us looked stressed or maybe she was just having a bad day. I asked the cashier at the window if I could pay for the person behind me too. He asked if I knew them, and I said no-I just felt like doing something nice for her. And she had a dog in the car with her, so she couldn't have been a terrible person.Awesomesauce1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(Dog lovers are usually cool people in my book. )
Anyway, the cashier gave me a weird look when I said I didn't know the person that I wanted to pay for, but he took my card and I paid. We had to wait a couple more minutes for our order, and when he gave me the ice creams, there was an extra one.
Me: "I only ordered 3..."

I'm doing okay (: It's been a few months since I settled down here. There are ups and downs but good thing is that I've gained a lot of new experiences. There are times that I don't feel like I'm being myself but there are times that I felt way too hyped that it drives me crazy as well.
My school life, it was quite fun and exciting. One term of my Gaming course has passed and at the same time I just found out that I actually get into the wrong class; the class that isn't supposed to be attended by International Student.
The problem was so vague before I kept asking about my CoE which supposed to be done by the time I moved into the Gaming course. After being persistent about it, I can finally get the news that my CoE has been proceeded. However, that's when the problem (that was supposed to be there all along) occurred. The staffs had no idea that this Gaming course (which was actually a new course) hasn't been registered in the list
