Commission Pricing (for artists and consumers)There’s a surprising number of people who I see posting polls and journals asking ‘what should I charge for commissions/my art?’Commission Pricing (for artists and consumers)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Every single time I see this, and the consumer responses I physically cringe. 9 times out of 10 the consumers are telling the artist $10-$20 max. Period. That’s it. A lot of these artists are trying to balance prices for consumers with the quality of their art and how much they can make to supplement their income. What do I mean?
I mean that a severely large number of artists are selling themselves short and cheating themselves, as well as the rest of us, by setting their pricing standards so low that we all suffer. “But fishie! THIS is what people can afford!” NO. STOP. RIGHT THERE JUST STOP.
First thing is first. “People” paid $60/image before artists let them set the prices. They saved up and then shelled out the money for high quality art from their chosen artist. They understood that we, the a
FWEC new Year Show!Fern Woods Equestrian center has decided to host a mini show. we decided to keep it mini because we think going into a proper show would be too much of a big step forward, considering that it's our first show.FWEC new Year Show!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Basically, the show is based around new year, we decided not to make it christmas themed in case some people got offended, and since everybody celebrates new year, this is the theme! we require that any kind of new year symbol or item on your picture is there, it can be anything, from a firework to a "2012" sign or whatever your heart desires! be creative!
Ending date: 15th January
Okay, so when I say "mini show" I mean, it doesn't get judged at how good your drawing is. It is judged by me, but im not picking it on the best one, because some people are more talented than others, im judging it by the effort and hard work I think people have put into itMe StartItWithASmile and ShadowRaven1 are ll the sort of...admins of this show,
NAME CONTEST - FINISHEDHey everyone!NAME CONTEST - FINISHED5 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you haven't guessed, I struggle majorly with naming characters,
and I want to make sure my new girl's name is perfect for her.
So I'm turning to the community for help!
I'm trying to find a name for this beautiful girl:
Some helpful information:
She's based off of Karsi from Game of Thrones (the amazing wildling chieftess who appeared and died in the Hardhome episode). She's going to be able to shape shift into two different forms: a gray wolf, and a common loon. Those two animals represent two facets to her personality. She's independent and headstrong, an iron-willed leader who is fiercely protective. On the other hand, she can be quite tranquil and observant, acknowledging that there is a time for ferocity and a time for passivity. She's a light draft breed, hence the amazing feathering on her legs.
Requirements for the name:
- Must not be too girly
- I like names

Hello everyone! Since it seems no one is doing ESS this year I decided to try and host it myself this year.
What is a "Secret Santa"
Secret Santa is a western holiday tradition in which participants are randomly assigned another participant to give a gift to. Despite the name, it is open to everyone, regardless of your traditions/beliefs. No one is excluded
What is "Equine Secret Santa"
The idea is to take the general rules of Secret Santa and apply them to equines via artwork. After you submit your name to me with some information and references (if you don't have an equine character you can tell me your favorite color/breed of horse), I will assign you another participant. It is your job to create a piece of artwork for that participant. At the same time, your name will be given to someone else, who w

There are some amazing stock out there on Deviantart. I'm taking a guess here, but DA have to be one of the best sites for people looking for recourses.
So here are a few personal faves. Some are a bit older, but most of them are posted over the past few months:

The Rules: Special Extended EditionAfter over a year of providing stock, I thought it was about time I clarified a few things about my rules and what they mean. Clearly, some people still don't understand. (Or wish to read them? But that's a completely different problem altogether) This journal is intended to spell out every situation I can think of to help people understand them a bit more. In the past three days, I have found 10 deviations from artists who have either not notified me of stock use, or did not credit.The Rules: Special Extended Edition8 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Rules of Stock use for Traditional Purposes and Photomanipulation purposes are quite different, actually. Those traditional artists who have noted me with questions regarding stock use for references have discovered that the rules are a bit more lax on them. I shall splain.
The rules for photomanipulation have been updated as of August 5th, 2009 to the following:
The most important rule of them all is simple: Use, Credit in your artists description and LINK ME

Art thieves/Jewelry resellers ( + musingsBreaking the self imposed hiatus to rant! I've been on DA for quite a few years (this isn't my first account) and I've never really been bothered by art thieves or suchlike, but recently I found out that someone actually ripped all the pictures and descriptions off my Etsy site (without my knowledge or permission, obviously) and relisted them on his own website for a tidy profit. I'm not the only person whose jewelry was up there, and I've already contacted them to let them know about the site, as well as asked the owner to take them off, though I don't know yet if he will. A screenshot (edited out the address/links as there's no need for anyone to harass him, I've already contacted the other people involved) with comparison to the original price:Art thieves/Jewelry resellers ( + musings3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Shine a Light
Light means so many things in our lives beyond mere illumination.
Cinematographers call the hour just before the sun sets “the magic hour.” Movie producers and directors schedule the shooting of love scenes and other important moments in their script to take advantage of the powerful effect that “magic hour” sunlight subliminally exerts on our psyches. The Dutch master painters of the 17th century were expert in focusing the eye on the “story

Holiday Card Project 2013Holiday Card Project 20132 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
