Premium Content and how I feel about making moneyHalloPremium Content and how I feel about making money2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's a new feature called premium content that allows users to make file downloads available for a charge. This seems to be something with a vast range of different possibilities that range from quite nice to to quite lame. Of course we are all always against commercialization and sell-outs and everything and don't want things to change but there are some interesting options here.
Obviously everyone is going to know whether or not this is something he or she could use and how much sense it's going to make for what you do specifically but there's two points I want to adress.
I always thought it was lame when people sell stuff like brushes or psd files. This is probably just my personal opinion and many will certainly disagree for valid reasons, but I think, if you make some brushes, and you ask money for something as tiny as that, you are lame. Sorry. Actually, the point here is not that it will kill someone to pay like one buck for something tiny, it's just that it change

"To raise money for charity, we're making an Artbook in which artists will be given the chance to draw a page (or double page) each. All profits raised will go directly to the RedKite, a foundation that works closely with children living with cancer, helping families financially in these tough times."
Ethereal-artbook is currently holding a contest where winning entries will be published in the artbook and will receive a free copy!
There will be four winners, each winner judged separately from the four categories available; green, blue, yellow and red
So what do we have to draw?

CA.Org/TAD Are Stealing Artist RoyaltiesMy name is Brad Rigney, I am an illustrator, some of you may be familiar with my art and also with my tutorial entitled "A Hostile Takeover" that Conceptart.org produced, distributed and later sold through Conceptart.org and The Art Department (TAD).CA.Org/TAD Are Stealing Artist Royalties1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First of all I want to thank those of you who have purchased my tutorial through legitimate means. Your support has been incredible, myself and my family can't thank you enough, the notes and letters I have received from many of you in regards to the tutorial have honestly been touching and inspirational - it's been an experience unlike anything I expected to find in this business.
It is that very experience which has prompted me to come forward and lay my cards on the table and finally expose what has been transpiring behind the facade that is being presented to you by these institutions, because you deserve to know the truth for your own financial and intellectual protection.
I've waited to come forward about it because I've wanted my mo
Razer Nostromo for Digital PaintingHey guys, I just wanted to share something that has GREATLY improved my digital painting setup.Razer Nostromo for Digital Painting2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For several months now I have been using the Razer Nostromo, a keypad designed for games, specifically for digital painting. It lets me compact all my most-used hotkeys into an ergonomic gadget.
I would consider this a must-have tool for the serious digital painter. I can hardly work without it now.
It was about $50 on Amazon a while back. Apparently there is also a new model out, but it is much more pricey. I would probably stick with this one.
Note: this may not work for you if you are left-handed
Great way to deal with Stress.Great way to deal with stress.Great way to deal with Stress.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I needed this. A reminder of how to deal with stress: Just write everything in your head down, and in the process emptying it completely. You don't have to think about a million things anymore, It's on paper. And just like that, you have peace.
Now you can look at all these problems and say. This is important, this isn't, this is the most important, this is what I need to do for it.
Everyone already does this in their head.
Problem is, when everything is still in there it keeps jumping around. And you'll be focusing on one problem and all of a sudden another problem jumps in and you lose your focus, then another one joins the dance and suddenly your head is spinning and you're lying on your couch staring at the ceiling feeling like you've not slept for a week.
Paralyzed and overwhelmed.
Just write it out, from "My business plan needs a complete redo" to "I don't like the color of my shoes" in no particular order, whatever comes up as you're writing.
Download my brushset and learn brush groupingHey everyone, I just put up a new video showing a simple, yet super handy way to categorize and group your brushes in Photoshop. It's especially useful if you have a really big set like me, it makes it really easy to find what you need so you don't have to hunt around constantly. I've also provided a download link to my current set of brushes with the video.Download my brushset and learn brush grouping9 months ago in Personal More Like This

Fan-fiction and Its Effect on LiteratureFan-fiction. Just that very phrase may elicit a groan out of some writers, yet other writers have embraced writing and reading fan-fiction. In any case, one must admit that the world of fan-fiction has greatly affected the world of literature and writing, whether a person holds it in favor or not.Fan-fiction and Its Effect on Literature2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

JUNE - GEMINIJUNE - GEMINI2 months ago in Personal More Like This
June, the first month of Summer brings to our attention Gemini Constellation with its seductive duality
So, let's see! :icontruesmiles:
People born under the sign of Gemini prefer changes, permanent stimulation and new experiences. Their charm singles them out in any circumstance. Gemini are made for society, relationships of all kinds, and diverse contacts. Gemini is the sign of a great intellectual curiosity and a tremendous need to communicate constantly. Such a person will try all life to learn something new. Natives of Gemini (May 21-June 21) are very clever, often endowed with literary talent, able to learn new things without effort and acquire various skills naturally, they are charming, loves to flirt with the opposite sex and easily attract their attention, but did not feel comfortable in family life. Monotonous life is a burden for them.
