Artist Alley tips, tricks, and other stuff learnedThis past May I sold my art at Anime North Artist Alley, or as it is now renamed, Comic Market. It was literally like taking an entire business class practical exam squashed into three loooooooooooong days. Not counting the month of work I sweated and stressed over. But it was definitely worth it, and I recommend it to everyone. Less because it's a great opportunity to make money (DEFINITELY NOT, unless you have previous experience), but because of the amount of stuff you will LEARN.Artist Alley tips, tricks, and other stuff learned5 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are so many things I would do differently next time, all of which are pointed out on the list below. But the idea is that by doing it, I now know what exactly it is like, and things I hadn't thought of beforehand and now known to me. Not to say the entire thing was a disaster; rather, it really went 50/50. Below are tips, but also examples from my own experiences. This is written for the newbie, but anyone's welcome.
I'd like to stress that "everyone is different". I think the outcome of your experie
Don't go to art schoolThis is a response to this article.Don't go to art school2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I completely, 100% agree with this article. I really feel like if you want a career in art, you do not necessarily need an art degree. (Of course, this depends on the field. If you are going into illustration like me, then you really don't need the degree. Animation is probably/most likely a completely different story, I really don't know) I will concur with Noah that I have never once needed a BFA to get any of the art jobs that I have (and I have gotten 4 steady jobs since I went freelance in late 2009). I have gotten them all based on merit, my portfolio and experience. I have never once been asked about my educational background.
What is my educational background? I went to Metropolitan State University of Denver for a BFA in Drawing but I dropped out this past semester. I went for 3 years and was essentially a junior. I dropped out because I basically hit a proverbial brick wall w

Share some love contest LAST DAY!!Since a lot of you did not submit your piece yet, I assume you need some more time. The deadline for the contest is hereby extended to april 15Share some love contest LAST DAY!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
is hosting a new contest!
This contest is going to be a bit different from the contests we held in the past.
Since Deviant ART is such a friendly environment I decided you all deserve a present!
How are we going to do this?
It's quite simple (:
We are going to make presents for each other.
The idea is every one who wants to take place in this contest leaves a comment in this journal. Stating information about yourself that helps the person who comments before you. Because the person who will comments after you will make you a present!
Since the first person to comment can not make a present I will be the first one to comment.
And also the last one to comment will receive a gift. This will come from the contributors of our group!
This is how you enter

Anime Classics - A list (Image Heavy)Anime Classics - A list (Image Heavy)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anime Classics - A list of the most influential anime from about 1987 - 2000 for new and old fans.
I made a list like this on Tumblr a while back but ended up removing it because of the length being a bit to heavy for Tumblr. However, to my surprise I got a lot of complaints from new anime fans who were looking forward to checking out the anime on the list.
I originally made the list because I've noticed in the past few years that some of the newer anime fans find themselves asking at cons "What is Tenchi Muyo? Ranma 1/2? Utena? Sailor Moon?" Since these were the first anime I discovered as a youngling, it really shocks me to hear people asking these questions. Has it really been that long? hahaha. So, without further adieu, here is a list, (according to me) of some of the most important Anime from my childhood, and mu
