If you are considering going into the industry....If you are an artist or want to be one, especially if you want to get into the VFX industry, you should watch this:If you are considering going into the industry....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It touches on a few things I feel are important to understand as an artist and even as consumers of art:
1.) Art is not an exact science. It can be difficult to put a price tag on it, let alone the often very complicated processes of making it.
2.) Computers are tools that facilitate our work but they DO NOT do the work for us.
3.) Don't get into this industry for the money. If you go into this line of work, you do it because you love it. If someone happens to get lucky or has a really great idea and he/she hits it big, GREAT! Good for him/her. But don't go in expecting that to happen to you. Chances are it won't. If you are lucky, you will find a nice middleclass job you can support yourself and your family on for a while...... until....
4.) Unfortunately, a lot of employers see artists as disposable. When they no longer need you, they will kick you to the curb an
My Thoughts on Healthcare in America.One of the great, hidden atrocities I feel gets lost in all this healthcare hubbub is how ultimately disgusting it is that we allow corporations to profiteer off of people's health. Healthcare CEOs should not become multimillionaires by denying people coverage or lifesaving medical procedures. Healthcare CEOs should not build their mansions on jacked up rates that effectively force hardworking middleclass families into poverty or into suffering through horrible illnesses they can't afford treatment for. No working taxpayer or disabled vet or child in this country should ever have to face down the choice between dying or going broke and then dying anyway when they get rescinded because they forgot to dot an i or cross a t somewhere. There is something horribly wrong in this country when CEOs look at sick people and see dollar signs instead of fellow human beings in need to whom they owe a debt as part of the social contract we all agree to in American society.My Thoughts on Healthcare in America.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Warning Capslock and cussing ahoy!
There's nothing quite like a nice stroll on a cool, crisp morning with a NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
I have to work, bills to pay, walk the dogs, go shopping, and I also need to NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
Haven't eaten all day, I should probably have some NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
FYI: If you walk past a flowery bush IRL and your first instinct is "Harvest mountain flowers," you've been playing too much Skyrim.
Approximately half of Skyrim's populace used to be an adventurer just like me, but then they all took arrows to the knee . which is funny because I've taken multiple arrows to the head and that hasn't stopped me from running tits first into one adventure after another and another . And another . AND ANOTHER OMHFG THERE ARE SO MANY !@#$%^&*ing SIDE QUESTS.

A nation-wide news of a 23yr paramedical student getting brutally gang-raped in a moving bus in the capital city of India, Delhi shook the nation and every heart of a girl in India. This is not what I wanted to see when I was a child. India is so full with talented individuals and great minds but still they run a dreadful society by infusing fear to a girl's or a woman's mind?
Please stop this right now. A girl has an equal right to breath, talk, walk and have every possible freedom as the other gender has.
Being a guy, I know that we are attracted to females more than they do. But personally I never have the feeling or even have the guts to think of "raping" someone. How can you do something like that to a human being? A guy must understand that raping a girl is not

I saw someone describing this issue much better, so I copied it. Scroll down.
Alright, maybe it's not only the fault of Deviantart, but this crappy point system helps. =_=
I see so many people asking like 1 - 5 points for an icon and other art, which is insanely low! And why do they do that? because it seems like a normal number, which isn't! 1 point is like 1 cent! All these artist who ask such a low price deserve so much more. Even if you're not so good. Please, think of the time you spent on your artwork and what that time costs for you (maybe a snack? Which can be 1 dollar or something, which is like 100 points!!). The only one I want to give 1 cent is maybe a baby who made a one second scribble. Only for the effort.
I know most here are here for hobby, but if you want to become a professional artist, ask a fair amount of points. Or real money if you can because you can't do much with points, you can't really convert them (I saw there is a way, but deviantart takes a bit

Today, I want to talk about something that's been on my mind for quite a long time: Daily Deviation suggestions.
But it wasn't until I read Lyricanna's There is no nice way to say it but and alicexz's New DD Suggestion rule that I felt the need to echo their words and add my two cents.
Quality of art: When sending a Fan Art suggestions, please bear in mind that I want to feature unique works. The best of a fanartist's gallery. What I look for in a Fan Art Daily Deviation is not cuteness. Cute just doesn't cut it, like Lyricanna said. I search for emotions, technical skill (composition, shading, colour, etc), interaction of the characters with their surroundings and other characters. I'm looking for pieces that tell me a story and/or show emotion. Of course, there ar

Last week, the first preparations for the next Krita release started with the creation of the first Krita 2.9 beta release: Krita 2.9 Beta 1. This means that we’ve stopped adding new features to the codebase, and are now focusing on making Krita 2.9 as stable as possible.
We’ve come a long way since March, when we released Krita 2.8! Thanks to the enthusiastic support of many, many users, here and on kickstarter, Krita 2.9 has a huge set of cool new features, improvements and refinements.
Here’s a short list to wet your appetite — a full intro to all new features will be presented when we present the final 2.9 release. That’s expected to happen in January, by the way.
*Krita can now open more than image in a singe window, and the same image in more than one window. *You can choose between sub windows and tabs.
*You can now organize the favorite presets in the pop-up palette using tags.
Yumi's Top Ten Favorite Hetalia Fan FictionsLet's be honest, the Hetalia fandom has gone downhill. Just like the MLP or Homestuck fanbase, fan art and fan fiction has lost it spark. Most of it has turned to slosh. But, there are those diamonds in the rough. I spend a lot of time treading through the murk to find these gems; I have searched far and wide, and now I want to share for others looking for a new fic to follow. Here's a top ten list of my personal favorite Hetalia stories.Yumi's Top Ten Favorite Hetalia Fan Fictions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I begin, I would like to note these all come from FF.net. For those unfamiliar to the site, it is infamous for being a slosh-peddler. Most of it, unfortunately, is the same tired plot or premise revised by another author.

School or self-teaching?What is the best way to move toward being the most talented, marketable artist you can possibly be? To school or not to school... that is the question.School or self-teaching?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are many many variables to consider. Schools vary broadly in terms of courses offered, quality of education, teaching staff, class size, and cost. Students vary widely in terms of motivation, study habits, interest in their courses, and income level. School can be an easier learning environment than self-teaching if you have a great teacher who is teaching what you want or need to learn. A teacher sets goals and holds you accountable. This arrangement can help maximize the learning experience by providing structure and accountability for the student. However, a student with sufficient motivation and enthusiasm (and internet access) can self-teach very well. One benefit of self-teaching is that you can pick your topics. You can identify your own weak points, or desired skill sets and focus on improving them.
SHOWING SUPPORT TO AN ARTIST + COMMON COURTESYI’ve been seeing tons of good intention towards artists recently but I think there needs to be a bit of a clarification as to how you choose to show your support;;SHOWING SUPPORT TO AN ARTIST + COMMON COURTESY11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Things to show support:
-Following them (Tumblr, Da, facebook)
-Commissioning them / buying their work
-Response (Comments, tags, messages)
-Original gift art
-Letting others know about them / exposure
-Respecting their wishes / what they say
Things that seem to show support but actually do the opposite:
-Reposting their work without their permission
-Tracing / replicating their work
-Permanently adopting / copying their style
-Pretending to be them
-Invasive control over their characters / making them your own
Often the things in the second list are not intentional and are meant well, but honestly I do think there is a necessity for people to understand that it is not alright/helpful/flattering and can be quite upsetting to the artist. I have personal experience of feeling a bit conf

Actually, to be fair, it's not just limited to deviantART, but rather the internet as a whole, where if you vaguely resemble a female, these guys will be on you like a magnet.
I've been on deviantART ever since I was 14 and I, like many of my friends on here, have had my fair share of internet perverts. I won't get into legalities, but I've seen and heard many absurd things. I've had men blatantly ask me for photos of my tits- and that's only the beginning.
Now, I do not speak on behalf of my entire gender, I am speaking only for myself. I am not your average dumb bitch hungry for a shallow compliment and cheap attention.

I am very good at what I do.

So often, I get people asking for my secrets, praying to some god to give them what I have, asking me for my Photoshop brushes, joking that I must have sold my soul to Satan, that I must be cheating somehow, asking what programs I use in hopes that there is some magic "art button."
I'm sorry but...... No.
There are no secrets. No god and no devil had anything to do with it. There are no magic Photoshop brushes. There is no magic art button. There are no magic programs that will do the work for you. You can get Poser- some of the images that come out of it are lovely and if that makes you happy, fine.

The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
