TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE...." I haven't reached the point where I think I'm good at this. that's the drive. i know that its in me to be really good at it. and i think i've come close a few times, but i don't usually look at things i've completed and feel content. Which that means the next thing you start, you go in with that attitude that 'this time, I'm gonna get it right.' it doesnt mean you hate everything you do, but i'm never content. And maybe i never will be but i secretly know that that's what makes you grow." - Jamie HewlettTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What meants to be a Pro?I was talking with somefriends the other day, they told me that i should quit deviantart and move to this new fresh pages were profesionals are, because deviantart was filled with kids,art wannabes and social dudes. They didnt said it as something disrespectful oe something, they were just giving me a nice advice to get more audience. But that got me thinking, this guy is really good this days his style its uniquegets top clients and stuff, but 5 years ago his art was really filled with flaws, he was one of those kids he was complaining deviant art was filled with.What meants to be a Pro?2 months ago in Personal More Like This
That got me thinking he has a different point of view of how been a Pro means to me. For me Pro doesnt mean professional, its a short word for PROMISE. Pro artists are people that can keep a promsie, and thats really important. Its so sad when they relate Pro word to art skills, its like they draw this red line on the floor and they measure people who can get in and who gets out. When its the moment when an artist feel

NO. For me, in order to do that drawing, even if it takes me 10 minutes to do, the reality is it's taken me FORTY YEARS and 10 MINUTES TO DO, because of all of my EXPERIENCE, and that's what's so important to understand that this is YOUR energy and this is YOUR time...

Last night at around 6:00 pm, my mother and my sister took my dog, Wrigley, to the animal hospital. For those of you that read my last explosive entry, you know that for the past two months, he's been battling bone cancer. Well, his battle's finally over, and he's not suffering anymore. He put up a good fight, and I'm so proud of him and his brother Max. He's not alone anymore, and that's what's gotten me through these last two day. Sometimes I find myself looking for him, listening for him, only to realize that he's not here anymore. And it's ok.
I want to apologize to those of you that read my last post, I didn't mean to sound so bitter. But I also want to thank you, because without these past few weeks of venting, crying and screaming, I don't think I would have been able to accept it so well. I still took it pretty hard, but not as badly as I thought I would.

and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

And with that... the lack of art will continue as well. So please keep patient... I'll keep everyone informed on when I will reopen them... It'll for sure be some time in 2015. So see you commissioners next year some time. :vCommissions WON'T reopen soon 12/18/141 year ago in Personal More Like This

All deviants interested in commissioning me must 1st send me a note titled "Commission" or something relative to that so I know what it's for, prior to opening the note. Please go over what service you wish for me to do, and be very specific with it.
