Avoid getting ripped off by a client.As a freelancer most of your business takes place online, which makes it really easyAvoid getting ripped off by a client.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
for people to rip you off. How many times have we seen the following scenario's:
1- Someone offers a descent payment for your artwork but wants you to do an art-test first.
after the art-test you're being told you're not good enough. Later you find out that other people
got to do different art-test topics and also weren't good enough. The client clearly ripped people off to get free artwork.
2- Someone offers good money for your artwork. The sketch gets approved so you continue working. Right when it's done the total image suddenly becomes a great disappointment and the client ends up not paying you.
These were just 2 examples of situations that happen a lot to freelancers. There are many more like it.
How to detect if a client is a bit fishy...
Does their email address look professional? Some legit people may use their Gmail address, with their real name or nickname, those are questionabl

1st scene, in bird's eye view of stromwind, epic, fantastic and amazing.
Sunset is shining above the city, indicates that the war is coming.
An armory in Stormwind. Shining shields on walls and weapons by racks.
Scene into the Throne Hall of King, so holy! King Llane is sitting on throne, Lothar and Medivh (I guess) standing in front of throne.
Close up of King Llane is thinking, maybe he's hearing Lothar reporting the war.
In Blasted Lands (or outland?), a green lightning pierces the sky.
Horde now! The army behind him slowly forward.
Orcs are moving forward.
An orc is watching Dark Portal.
Aside saying - Our hope is destroyed, there is nothing to go back too.

First of all, I wanted to remember you that I selected the winning works for the representation of a CONTRAST between a character and his environment, not for your skills to draw or photomanipulate. So, please, don't feel offended if your beautiful work hadn't be choosen . I tried to select the more creative works in my mind.
I would also tell you that I'm really happy with all these beautiful creations you did ! Many thanks for your participations, I hope you'll try to participate to the next contest .

A Short Study on Grimdark Ponies:iconnocommissions: :iconrequestsclosed:A Short Study on Grimdark Ponies2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After submitting my Tribute to Infamous 6, a stray comment led me to a journal entry by :iconxeno-the-hedgehog: briefly addressing grimdark ponies. In an attempt to give a decent and intelligent reply, my brain did the one thing I knew it would do: brood over it. Now I can't stop thinking about it.
So here I present a wall-of-text about some of my thoughts on this.
I'm going to first start this off with something completely unrelated to ponies, just bear with me.
Around 2003, a comic mini-series was published by DC Comics called Superman: Red Son. The premise was that instead of landing in Kansas, Superman's infant space ship arrives at Earth a few hours later, meaning Earth's rotation placed Ukraine in the ship's path instead.

From Shakespeare, through Stocker, Poe, Lovecraft, Murnau, Wiene, Tolkien... et ceatera, et ceatera... You may find this motif in many great pieces. It doesn't actually have to mean ghosts around - somnambulism presented in Cabinet of Doctor Caligari looks haunted despite the lack of spirits. On the other hand, there are few places scarier than the Dead Marshes described in the Lord of The Rings. Or the Eel Marsh estate from the recent movie. You surely have heard some local legends and tales, talking about unhappy brides and maidens wandering around a long time after their death or about a highwayman as from one of Loreena McKennitt's ballads.
In this contest, you're supposed to refer to one of such haunted pieces. It should be inspired by or refering to a legend, a novel, a movie, an existing (or not existing any more) place, even a song lyrics. Illustrating!
A big black hole called: Procrastination.Procrastination is an infinite cycle that becomes bigger and bigger the longer it's there and the time wasted being sucked into it is a dark matter of nothing.A big black hole called: Procrastination.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
hahah I figured this was the most dramatic way to put it, but yeah, it's real and it sucks.
For those who don't know what it means: Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before the deadline.
We all suffer from procrastination. It is pretty innocent when you have it with household chores or packing your suitcase before you go on a holiday.
But it becomes a serious problem when you do it with the important things in your life. I take it you're an artist if you're reading this and the biggest aim of being an artist is to be an even better one.

Topic 1: Am I on the right track to becoming a better artist?
Does your work from today, look closer to your initial goal than your work from last week? (this needs to be both in skill and idea.)
Good skills: Honing your technique, training you muscle memory, being more knowledgeable about your tools and art rules. With art rules I mean: Perspective, form, light, texture, composition.
Good ideas: Storytelling, characteristics, charm, emotion and design. Not just making things look polished but also convey something more, something that brings it to life and speaks to pe

The spotlight has a certain psychological effect that can cause the brain to do strange things.
For example, if you’re in a play and you know your lines backwards and forwards in rehearsal, the effect of the spotlight could still make you trip up on opening night. It wouldn’t be the first time it’s happened, and luckily for you, you’d be in very good company.
