Being a Commission Artist part 1I often get messages from other artists who are looking into doing commission work themselves although they're not sure where to start. I don't claim to be an expert in being a commission artist, although I have been accepting commissions since 2000, so I do have a bit of experience under my belt. So I thought that I'd actually write down some stuff that may or may not help other people who want in on the gigBeing a Commission Artist part 15 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've got a bit to say about this, so I'll be divvying it up in several parts!
Part One: Making sure you're ready to take on commission work.
We've heard all sorts of horror stories regarding commissioning artists on the net, both from the commissioner and the commissionee's side. Here we'll tackle how to look at yourself to make sure that you do NOT end up being the villain in those horror stories.
Yes, the extra cash is tempting. You're gonna do what you like to do and get paid for it! Simple, right? Wrong! You will find that as a commission artist, there will

Q: Where did you get your wig?
A: My Finn made it for me. It was made out of two long wigs-- one 48 inch, one 60 inch. They were purchased on Ebay. I don't know the seller, sorry!
Q: How did you do the makeup?
A: It is Ben Nye Character Series cream makeup in Ghoul Grey (CB-8). It was applied using latex makeup sponges and sealed with Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Powder and hairspray. I do not recommend using hairspray unless you have someone helping you apply the makeup.
You can buy it here: http://www.frendsbeautysupplyonline.com/bennyecharacterbasecb-8ghoulgrey.aspx for only $3.40!
Q: How much makeup did you use?
A: Evicted! : Medium Coverage (face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands)
Henchmen: Medium Coverage (face, neck, chest, shoulders, arms, hands)
It Came From the Nightosphere**: Minimum Coverage (face, neck, hands)
Heat Signature: Medium
Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)Our view at deviantART regarding SOPA is that it's probably a bad idea. There should be better ways to deal with mass infringement on the Internet than this. This bill in our view can be seen as a threat to the open Internet itself and this is very hard to digest or support.Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
I personally have found information at the EFF and at Public Knowledge to be very helpful in understanding what is at stake.

Morrowind FeatureMorrowind Feature4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is my favourite game of all time, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been planning for awhile to put together a game-inspired feature; unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since most Morrowind-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Morrowind is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2002. The central plot concerns the deity Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are detailed discursive quests for a variety of factions, including various guilds, religious organizations, and aristocratic houses.
Lord Voryn Dagoth had been a good friend of Lord Indoril Nerevar, but they tu

CHARLES DARWIN: A Powerful Legacy for Science and Art
Darwins inheritance II
February 12 marks Charles Darwin’s 206th birthday.
His career was long and illustrious, and he conceived one of the most influential ideas of all time: the theory of evolution. This theory states that life on earth slowly changed and developed over millions of years, with each species passing along the traits that made them better suited to survive in their environ
Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank YouI honestly didn’t mean to come back so suddenly, but the news from earlier today just hit home very hard and I felt the need to say something to y’all.Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank You1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Robin Williams Passes Away
Robin Williams passes away today at the relatively young age of 63. The earliest reports so far seem to confirm that it was a suicide by asphyxiation. He had been battling severe depression for quite some time now, and it seems that it ultimately did him in. Robin Williams was one of the first actors who’s career I began to follow as a kid, owing largely to his involvement in Disney’s Aladdin as the Genie.
I remember a story Stephen Spielberg told about when he was filming Schindler’s List. While over in Germany, Robin Williams would call Stephen up every night to tell him a joke because the story of Schindler’s List was so depressing and difficult to film Stephen needed the pick-me-ups.
It’s incredibly sad that Robin ultimately took his own life lik

Nah, just messin' with ya. What I meant to say was;
"Never give up. Always be yourself."
It's gonna suck hearin' that over and over as you get older.
But a stereotype starts with a grain of truth; a cliché begins with a boulder.
And no matter what, you're an animal. A born natural.
So you don't need some motivational speaker asshole feeding you reheated inspirational corn casserole.
You magical bastard!
Get it through your brain!
Inject it in your vein. Get infected with the strain;
The strange idea that you're the reflection of those who came before.
More than science, our bodies are history's oldest appliance.
We're piggyback riding the shoulders of giants,
Which is how we survive when the ceilings keep getting higher and the light bulbs keep burning out.
We learn by word of mouth,
And when your time is past, don't drag each other down.
'Cos bein' a crab in a bucket is mad lonely.
Be the crab escaping from crab prison by making a crab rope out the window made only o
