dear dA: age is irrelevantthis recent deviantart poll "At what age does an artist have the most artistic freedom?" is a condescending and narrow-minded question.dear dA: age is irrelevant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
often i see people have opinions about age and how it relates to art. some say that they are too young or too old to do one thing or the other.
well, i have not been on this planet very long, i can't speak for everyone and everyone's circumstances are different. but i will say this.
you are alive. and since you are, there is nothing that can stop you from your freedom to express yourself through art or anything that you have a passion for - especially your age.
don't let anyone's preconceived notions about your social status stop you from doing something that is so much bigger.
a blank canvas doesn't care how old you are, where you came from or what inspires you. you will always be able to fill it with what inspires you no matter what.

DA's Insular Taste PhenomenonIt's been quite a while since I wrote a preachy "THINK ABOUT YO' ART"-type journal, and some of my newer watchers may not know that this is a particular(ly annoying) habit of mine. This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go. (As an aside- this journal does have some recycled ideas from a previous post of mine, but obviously I hadn't really said everything I wanted to on the subject.)DA's Insular Taste Phenomenon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's no mystery that I love this website. I came in at the tail end of the pre-critique wonder years, when the internet discovered and exploited that, yes, we don't always produce the highest quality art here. There's a lot of unpleasantness directed towards DeviantArt. At RISD, I made a point to never mention that I had an account here, because of the looks of disgust I would get haha and people would think about me differently. It was
How to Advertise you WorkOriginally posted in JewelersGuild, a group I co-founded. I felt others may benefit from this as wellHow to Advertise you Work1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Recently someone posted a comment asking people to advertise for them. This has in turn led us to the conclusion that it is high time we wrote something about advertising your work. Not everyone knows this subject very well, or how to go about doing it.
First thing you need to know is that you must be the one to do the work. Don't ask someone else and offer a portion of the profits. That is considered rude, and quite lazy. You don't want that. You want to make a good impression. First impressions go a long way. Now if someone offers to advertise your work that's something else entirely.
Secondly, know who your customers are. This is something a lot of people don't consider, and thus do not know how to advertise their work properly. For example let's say you make steampunk jewelry. Your primary customers would be those who are into steampunk. Is your wo

My deviantART storyI signed up on DA 5 years ago because friends told me it was a nice place to view a lot of awesome art. (So true!) Back then I wasnt an artist and hadnt planed to be one either, I merely wanted to check cool stuff in my freetime. Haha. Pretty soon after getting a account I left though and forgot the place entirely.My deviantART story1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Not until late in 2011 I went back again, I was bored that particular day and looking at art is always fun. The difference now was that I begun speaking to people, and got some really great friends at that, and as my friendhip grew and I got more and more inspired by the artists I saw, I also wanted to start make things. So I did the only thing I was okay-ish at - I drew and painted.
One of the first things I put on DA, a painting of my Brook Horse for the fantasy trilogy I write

Vitreous EnamelArtisan Crafts WeekVitreous Enamel4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Vitreous enamel is a material made by fusing powdered glass to another material (usually metal or ceramics - I'll be talking about metal) by firing. The powdered glass melts and flows into a smooth coating, which hardens as it cools. There are a lot of other materials out there that are calling themselves 'enamel' that are technically a resin or something else with very similar properties - traditionally, however, enamel is glass, and that's what I'll be talking about in this article!
Although this all sounds super cool and fancy (hopefully) you can actually find examples of products that have been enameled in an industrial setting all over the place! The older white boards at schools, for example, were often made of steel with a white enamel coating on them. In addition, cookware is often enameled - ever see those dark blue pots with the white speckles? Other commonly used items that have been enameled are bath tubs, dishwashers, and other appliances.

Japan and ArtSo I just got back from two weeks in japan with one of my best friends. She's been there for almost four years teaching english. She speaks fluent japanese, so she was my translator and train figure-er-outer. XDJapan and Art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The whole time I kept thinking about something a very popular concept artist on DA said and how much it made me mad at the time and how much angrier it made me while i was spending time in Japan. I'm paraphrasing here, but he basically said that Anime was the downfall of young western artists and that there weren't any good anime anyway except one or two- but he admitted that he didn't really watch anime at all and hadn't seen much... all based on the fact that he couldn't find good art that inspired him, a professional artist with amazing talent, on a site that is mostly filled with amateur and young artists from around the world.
Even without the anime influence, I think DA would be filled with the same level of art it is now. the close ups of v

The genius of Miyazaki - Art HistoryIf you haven't heard his name, you must have heard about at least one of his creations. So, who's Miyazaki? It's easier to say who he's not.The genius of Miyazaki - Art History2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hayao Miyazaki was born on the 5th of January 1941 in Bunkyo, Tokyo, as a second of four sons. His father was a director in young Miyazaki's uncle's factory producing rudders for fighter planes - this is where Hayao became highly interested in aviation, which often appears in his films.
When Miyazaki was a little kid, his mother suffered from Pott's disease (sort of tuberculosis) and spent a few years in a hospital. Some says that a very similiar motif appearing in "Tonari no Totoro" ("My neighbour Totoro") was strongly inspired by that part of his life. Also, during his childhood, Miyazaki had to change his place of residence and switch schools several times, which influenced his films a lot, too.
Negativity in fandom, and the dreaded "thoughI was talking with a friend about how some fandoms are super fun to be a part of. And some...not so much. I regret to say, as much as I love Korra, it's not a particularly fun fandom for me. Neither was Avatar.

Fandom has become a dirty word. I have literally been accused of participating in fandom. Wait, accused of what? For me, the whole idea of "fandom" can be summed up in one word: excitement. Man, I love getting excited about shit. And I LOVE talking to other people who are excited about shit! And then our excitement spirals around each other's and then we make awesome creations with that extreme excitement. EXCITEMENT-BENDING! This is what happens EVERY time I post a fanart, and I c

Consider this a rough step-by-step tutorial of how to break into the industry based on my experience, the mistakes I made and the things I learned along the way - while they are fresh in my mind. Anyone listening to my story should know that since it already happened, by repeating the same process you won't be able to get the same results. You will need to work harder, because I just took your spot.
Now, the big dogs out there will have much more information about the industry, how it works and what they like to see. I'm simply attempting to sum up how I would approach it if I had 5 years to do it over.
