How to do an Advanced Search on DACommunity WeekHow to do an Advanced Search on DA3 weeks ago in Art Features More Like This
DeviantArt is a website that hosts millions of works published with broad search criteria, covering hundreds and thousands of results... Which can be very overwhelming! It is never easy to find what you're looking for and it is common to become lost when navigating among the content, unless you know the best way to perform a good search. This guide will show you what the most used and recommended criteria are to look for specific content in DeviantArt's search engine. To find out, I invite you to continue reading ^^.
It is the main search engine at DeviantArt, which you can find tons of graphic and literary material with. There are parameters that make searching the site either easier and faster. These parameters can be combined to optimize the search and get specific results, those that accommodate our needs and interests. Knowing how to manage this page correctly not only allows you to find w
Advice on CommissionsBecause I have seen too many people make this mistake lately. I need to address something.Advice on Commissions9 months ago in Personal More Like This
When you first start having people pay for your art. (Take on "Commissions") Whether it be in person, on DA, Facebook, WHATEVER.
Never, never, NEVER draw them art BEFORE you receive payment.
I know what you're thinking:
"But I KNOW this person! They'll pay me!"
"I was just so excited to draw them ____! Because I wanted to impress them/make them smile!"
"They're just on hard times right now, but they'll pay as soon as they can!"
No they won't.
Because a lot of these people do NOT understand the value of art. Let's face it-- when compared to everything else that needs to be purchased in life, art comes last.
They already received their art. Why would they pay for something they already got?
Something that makes people think this way are the ways that artists represent themselves.
By not being professional and confident about selling your art, you will find that people, (ESPECIALLY peopl
Price of the Art on dAI would like to move a very specific thread.Price of the Art on dA5 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's about the price of art and commissions. Because there are a lot of questions; what decides for the price of art? Why it is worthy? And why do we buy commissions?
Some is already written here: http://goldenwolf.deviantart.com/journal/26548172/#comments
I've met with many people who were complaining about the price of art, especially why it is expensive and it doesnt deserve. Even some person did a drama just because prices of my art are *too* expensive. And I'm not alone, I've saw on some proffessional artists who are on dA as well.
I noticed the price of art on deviantART is very low.
Like many people complains that full colored picture plus you get original for 50-70$ is too much. I did some research and counted how much artists originally earn (out of dA)- even a simple artist earns 5 times more than great artists on dA which I know.
Do you know on Eurofurence just only PRINT can be sold there for 100-500 euros?

Pro Yaoi, anyone? :)Pro Yaoi, anyone? :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I often see people whine about rabid yaoi/yuri fans. But did you know that rabid het fangirls exist, too? They are a real nuisance if you ask me as they actually seem to believe that only their opinion is the only right opinion. They constantly whine about shounen ai and why it has ruined their fandom or their favourite characters. Hey guys! Instead of complaining you could become active and support your own fandom! It's your choice. Either sit there and whine or do something that others can enjoy.
"But nobody cares about hetero pairs" isn't an excuse to bash yaoi/yuri couples or the fans. Unfortunately I often see het fans insulting the whole genre and making a big fuss why their favourite characters can't be gay. I am not saying that all het fans act like that but there are a lot of people who spread the anti-yaoi mentality. Don't they realize that this behaviour won't help them? If they want to see het couple

INTERVIEW WITH NOVOO:iconnovoo:INTERVIEW WITH NOVOO1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Where did you get your nickname novoo from?
After using my full name for almost 2 years as my username, it was time to get something new on deviantart and customize.org. novo is the portuguese word for "new", but it was already taken. So I tried "novoo" and voilá.. a new nickname was born
How did you get started in customization, was it difficult at first?
I think it was back in 2004. Screenshots with overloaded Samurize configs were the hit on internet forums. So I played around with it, did some modifications on Winamp Skins, changed a few icons, posted my screenshots on customize.org... that's it
Where did you find your inspiration from?
Mostly through music, nature and other designer's work.

A small talk about pricing your artYou're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!A small talk about pricing your art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.
