passion into your profession. But there is a way of measuring your chances on being
able to get work and eventually sustain a living from it.
Accepting commissions or freelance for low payment won't help you. You can think any penny counts, but it will lower the worth of your work and damage the market.
How to measure that you are ready?
You probably have high goals, but they are usually not your first step. You must search out the clients who can be that first step. Often found in the card game industry, book cover illustrations and smaller game company's.
Look at the artwork shown by a company such as the card game company: Fantasy Flight games. Compare your skills with the average of their artworks. If it matches yours, you will have a chance. However, keep in mind that those artworks had been done in a limited timeframe, usually within 12 hour
Why we fall. - Edited with full postWhy we fall. - Edited with full post5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Art by Allison Smith.
"Why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up."
One of my favorite lines from Batman Begins. However, there are moments where it's rather difficult to get back up, and sometimes we require that one special kick in the ass.
From each tumble, we learn a valuable lesson. A year or so ago, I had hit a personal wall that was proving too difficult to force through. Art, which is usually front and center, took a back sea--and while we've all had art blocks--that wasn't the only issue.
It began with my roommate of two years, whom had decided it was time to move else where. With such a sudden interruption, I had to find a new home and in less than 30 days.
Having also been through a bleak breakup months prior, and finding myself with no pending freelance work and

The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

Demode Couture (There are so many links I could post that are already compiled and organized beautifully on Kendra VanCleave's site. Absolutely worth your time.) http://demodecouture.com/links/
The Costumer's Manifesto (cluttered but deep, lots of good links hidden away in the fray) http://www.costumes.org/
Wikipedia (surprisingly useful! Great for when you're trying to initially pin down a period.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Western_fashion

Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

I speak, of course, about Cowboy Bebop, which, ever since its debut in 1998, has astonished many both in & outside of the world of anime. The phenomenal actors who halped bring the show to the Western world have won much praise for their performances. The show's music has been reissued again & again and has been hailed far & wide as some of the best jazz compositions in yeara. But you already knew all that.
You probably also already know how the series' director, Shinchiro Watanabe, has ben hailed far & wide for managing to nail several diffrent genres of film distinctly together while maintaining an even flow throughout. And how the series composer, Yoko Kanno, created several songs that not only are excellent TV composi
Some thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.I commission art a lot. I've commissioned from many different artists all over the world. And after several years here are a few on my own personal thoughts on commissionsSome thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. List you prices.
- Whether its flat rates or by the hour, artists that commissions should list their rates. Most the time the old saying "If you have to ask, it probably costs to much." really comes into play here. I'm so much more likely to commission someone where I can gauge my budget. I myself am a single income family of five. That means I have a budget. A budget means I shop around. So that means when I am comparing artists if I know what I can spend with one and not the other, I'm more likely to go with the one I know I can budget.
2. List your customers.
- It is so much easier for a person to know where they stand when you have them listed.
2½. Update your customers.
- Most artists have an idea how long something is going to take. Now it's understandable that the idea isn't always acc

A Tribute to Hans Ruedi GigerA Tribute to Hans Ruedi Giger1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft

Independence Day Feature(I want to apologize in advance for any profanity I use. )Independence Day Feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It seems that every year when the 4th come around people living in the U.S.A. seem to get less and less patriotic. It doesn't help that anyone with a love of liberty and personal independence is now being classified as a terrorist. http://visiontoamerica.com/10718/feds-lovers-of-liberty-are-terrorists/ (I mean, SERIOUSLY?!?! WHAT THE HELL!? I guess that makes nearly every person to ever join the American army a terrorist, not to mention the very founders of our nation! )
So, in defiance of our fucked up government and in honor of the founding fathers and all those who lost their life and risked everything to give us what we have now, here's my Independence Day feature. Enjoy and God bless you.
