Meet Fan-Artist of February 2013!
Tell us about yourself and you only been here for a whole year now, what is your biggest (and proudest) accomplishment? Like a time when you felt like you were right on top of the world
I’ve been drawing since I was little. I kept it as a hobby and draw stuff I like from time to time. Since I love Dragonball, basketball, I started drawing a lot sketches related to these subjects with traditional medium and kept it up for years. At first I just look at other artist's work to get inspired, now I really like the deviantART community and appreciate what I can learn from the community.
Well, I never felt like on top of the world^^, but I guess the biggest accomplishment for me is when others told me that I inspire and motivate them to become better.
What does "Art" mean to YOU? What about "Fan Art"?

With the love of deviantART, I will be coming over to SDCC this year again. Very likely i will be camping at the Artist Alley meeting fans, smiling, shaking hands, taking photos, selling and signing a small quantity of art prints, sketching and having fun. I will also be joining dA for a panel about The Business of Fan Art with $makepictures, $damphyr from deviantART and *BrianKesinger. Talking about art prints, if you have anything in specific that you wanna pick up at my table, feel free to let me know and I will see what I can do.
Looking forward to see you all there!
Wanna become a professional artist?You better WORKHello everyone~Wanna become a professional artist?You better WORK1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I decided to start this discussion because it seems to be unknown yet a very wanted discussion among many artists. A long long time ago I made a poll asking my watchers if they wanted to become a professional artists someday (and this poll is on my profile again, please go there to give it your vote ^^) and 45% of my watchers said they wanted to become professionals someday and they would do their best to achieve that. I will tell you guys who are these professional guys, about notions of market and how to be noticed as well.
First off, I'll start telling you guys about something you've probably thought of in your artist life.
Our world has now 7 billion people. That's a lot, right? Now let's suppose that 1% of that population decides to dedicate their hobbies for painting and drawing (I cannot say "art" because art is pretty general, it involves music, cinema, etc) and 1% out of 7 billion is still a lot right? Now let's suppose that 10% (that is a very optimistic previ

1. Why did you become a member of deviantART?
At first I just signed up to look at other artist's work to get inspired, now I appreciate what I can learn from the community, ideas concepts from different artists and I love inspiring others.
2. Of the 8 years you've been here, what is your biggest (and proudest) accomplishment here on deviantART? Like a time when you felt like you were right on top of the world
deviantART is a great place to get known,but what makes me even more honoured/proud is when I create something different from my usual stuff and still get recognition and even encouragement and critiques to continue to explore new ideas and concept.Recently I've started to do more environmental paintings, from the many encouragement I received, I felt like I can really achieve something that is more then what I have now : )

Sorry for taking while to give a result. It was a wonderful but hard time for me to choose top 5 since everyone seems like music theme. We have more entries than usual challenges and actually the most wonderful thing is quality of all entries are growing up. Isn't it amazing? I was so excited to see them all, therefore if you have time, please take a look at whole entries since I am sure you can find several great artists there to watch: http://hellobaby.deviantart.com/favourites/47401935
(BTW, if I miss any entries in the challenge fav folder, please tell me since sometimes I forget to add it in while I am watching them around. Thank you,)
Also look at them make me wish I could choose more, not only top 5. Yeah, it has been a really hard time to pick top 5 only (sorry, I wish I could pick more):

Becoming a professional artist- headache clientsHello everyone~ :iconbunnyloveplz:Becoming a professional artist- headache clients11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm really short in time these days, but I decided to make this series of Journals in which I give you guys some hints on trying a professional life as an artist. I have been feeling inspired to do that lately, so let's do it <3333
Here is my previous Journal:
First off, if you are reading this, it means you like drawing, right? ^^'' if you don't, then you probably missclicked it, sorry. ; v ;
But before thinking of becoming a professional, I advise you to measure how much you like drawing. Don't imagine yourself drawing like you do right now (during boring classes or on a short part of your free time). Imagine doing that at least 8 hours a day. Would you feel tired? Of course you would, all jobs are tiring after all. But do you think there would be times in which you would feel an immense, tiring art block you wouldn't be able to escape from? Would you be able to deal with the shortest deadlines possible? Or worse,
