Christmas Free Raffle!, Art Trade and UpdatesHello all!Christmas Free Raffle!, Art Trade and Updates4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Every year I've tried to have special holiday sales for my commissions but this year it looks like I've accumulated a pretty tall pile of work > <.
Therefore, instead of opening commissions I'll be holding a Christmas raffle, yaaaay! Also. I'd like to do a gift exchange with one other artist. More information later in the journal.
Up for grabs is a bust drawing, either in style 1 or style 2 ! (with or w/o bg basically)

Comment on this journal! That's one entry!

All Bases + RulesIf you wish to purchase ALL bases together, (about 1500+ points together) you can get them for 10$ via PayPal, yes I know this is cheaper than the points, but the reason why is because it's faster and doesn't make me wait for 2 weeks. c: Just note me and I will send you the PayPal and send you a temporary link for the download of the whole pack.All Bases + Rules2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Read all the rules and info before purchasing please. Refunds will not be given, if the files are corrupted I can exchange the files and you can re-download it for free.
In case of errors here is a list you can do that worked for other people:
- Make sure you have WinRAR or Winzip installed to your computer, it downloads the whole pack as a .zip file so you will need either of those programs to open it. They're free and easy to find on Google. Majorly of the people seem to forget this.
- Update your Flashplayer here: http://get.adobe.com/en/flashplayer/
- Use a different browser. (I use Maxthon/Chrome and it works perfectly

why art style doesn't matterare you obsessed with creating a unique art style for yourself?why art style doesn't matter3 months ago in Personal More Like This
do you become disappointed with your ever-changing style and wish it was stable?
art isn't about drawing in a very specific manner repeatedly for the rest of your life! stop making your main focus in art to make your own art style or stay true to your tried and true style!
art, to me, is so much bigger than that. instead of trying to become a one-trick pony, get yourself comfortable with art and let the rest happen on its own! who knows, by the end of it you may find yourself comfortable drawing in DOZENS of styles! try painting or realism, try drawing wildly and without care, try drawing something so exaggerated it's barely recognizable, try drawing with other senses in mind, try drawing a specific mood- etc!
art isn't ABOUT finding a style! before you become worried about your art being too inconsistent, worry about your anatomy, backgrounds, and color choices! study your surroundings, draw f
Animethon 20 ReviewSo this is pretty darn late to be posted but seeing as we were swept away in August and early September by cons, cosplay making and bust work/school schedules I couldn't really find a good time to do it until now XDAnimethon 20 Review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me just preface this by saying that Animethon was my kinda con. I can't express enough how much of a good time I had there and how blown away I was at the amount of people who came to see us at the con and how much love we received. I was warm fuzzies all weekend what with meeting everyone :3
We also got to stay with our friend, :iconsensei-kay: who lives in Edmonton, so it was an absolute pleasure to really spend so quality time with him as well!
This is gonna be a short runthrough since it has to be for the sake of my fingertips XD If I try to mention everything and everyone this'll never get done so HERE WE GO! XD

Does talent exist?I know many people have different opinions about this. And here's what i think of it and why. I'll just answer the journal question up front, I think talent does not exist. And here's why:Does talent exist?7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Let's start with he question, what is talent? It's this magical thing that makes some people learn faster and develop faster than others in different fields. Let's take art for example, there are 2 different artists, both start at the same time to learn a concept and one learns faster than the other. But few people have stopped to ask themselves why that is? Is it talent, or is it something else?
Let me tell you a story about a guy who started an experiment to see if talent exists. He posted an add where he stated he's looking for a wife that will agree to marry him and let him test their children in this experiment. And they made 3 girls. The guy taught them all how to lay chess from a very early age, and lo and behold all of them became grandmasters in chess. This story is real, the guy is

Introducing the New NavigationIntroducing the New Navigation5 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Explore the full range of DeviantArt.
With better organization and improved structure, our new navigation creates a more streamlined site experience. Features like Today, Undiscovered, and What’s Hot have been given more prominence, while the More menu is now easily accessible with its simplified, new look. The addition of infinite scroll on Daily Deviations allows you to quickly discover even more hand-selected deviations. This all adds up to more control over what you use most and makes it easier to discover great artists and their art.
The More menu, which was previously available next to the DeviantArt logo, has been better organized and moved to a more prominent and convenient location. This change was based on community feedback that its previous placement was hard to find, and its contents overwhelming.

EncouragementWhen I started out on DeviantArt, I used to be one of those artists that thought I could never do art properly.Encouragement10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'll start saying that I spend most of my childhood getting only little encouragement.
My parents were, like many other parents, convinced that art wasn't that much of a useful skill since it's nearly impossible to earn money with -- and would've liked it if I spend my time doing something more useful instead. At school I was that pathetic kid without friends. Creative, yet very introverted. The one that gets bullied in the schoolyard. Needless to say; it was rare to find people saying something nice about me, and it was even more rare to find someone actually encouraging me.
Back then, I used to believe that I was alone. I initially signed up to DeviantArt to find people with similar interests. But it happened to change my mind along the way. When I came into contact with other artists, I came to realize that there were in fact many people just like me. People th

She's also an animator.
The pay's kinda okay I guess, better than your average burger flipper,
but not close to other equally hard working people in other jobs.
A couple weeks back, her hard drive gave up the ghost.
It stopped working like a unionized chemistry teacher

And leaving everyone else pretty darned peeved.
Trapped within her hard drive are her personal files,
past projects, portfolio samples...
...And the first five years of photos of her daughter, Lily.
