Short Hair TutorialsMorning everyone!Short Hair Tutorials3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been running around like a bit of a nut this week as we spent the weekend in Canberra working with Australia Tourism. But now I'm back and a little rested I'll be shooting the next set of hair tutorials this week so if you have requests please let me know asap
Also I get daily requests to make tutorials for people with short hair. This is a little easier said than done because obviously I don't have short hair and haven't for many years. I do try to get friends with shorter hair to model but not everyone wants their face plastered all over the internet ^_^
That said I have previously done a series of video tutorials using my awesome friend Stef so there are 5 tutorials on my youtube channel to get you started if you have short hair. I'm going to see if I can get her or another friend to volunteer for photo versions as well so if you have a particular style you want to learn just pop it in the comments too.
Here is a playlist for the short hair tutorials: http:
Life is Beautiful...Isn't it?Life is Beautiful...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are magical moments in life where I get the opportunity to remember that I'm nothing but an insignificant living being among 8 billion others.. on a planet among 8 in a solar system among billions in a galaxy among trillions and all in one universe-- possibly among others?-- where whether or not I died, would hardly leave a mark even in the face of my own city.
The world goes on without you.
Yet I once realized, that a meaning in life, is to give life a meaning.
Live your dreams! You only live once.
Don't do idiotic dares for the sake of saying you did them-- go tell that cute boy or girl you like them!
Go tell the world your name!
Why must everything be over after one failure..?
Sure, the humiliation of having everyone look down upon you is torture itself... but when you get back up and show everyone that you're somebody, it won't be you who'd be ashamed for not realizing your potential sooner-- but them!

Dear Watchers and Friends,Words cannot describe how much I appreciate your support.Dear Watchers and Friends,4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every single one of you is very important to me.
Why am I saying this?
I only want you to know it!^^
I know sometimes I write controversial journal entries, I reject re-watches and requests. But I always have my reasons and I never mean it rude.
I would never scare anyone away by being mean or something like that.
Maybe in a discussion when I cannot understand your point, I can be a little bit pissed off. This is only because I'm quite emotional.
But I can separate opinions on a topic from the person self! So I'd never be mad at you for disagreeing with me.
Without you, dA wouldn't be fun to me! x3
Thank you for everything!
Lots of love!
Free hugs for everyone!!
[Update because this topic is always up to date!^^]

I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

In the meantime if there are any other characters you want to draw, particularly the ones with
go for it. I don't know when I'll be done (maybe a week or two. It's pretty massive!)

For this collab, we will be drawing all the Star Wars characters we can!

You don't have to be part of the group to join in the collaboration, but it's HIGHLY recommended at least for the duration of the collab because if I have any updates or new rules, I'm going to send the message here.
Any Star Wars character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken him/her/it, then you can't sig
#Fella - About: CommentingComments are an integral part of our everyday deviantART life - we communicate with each other through comments, give and get feedback, critiques, or have the most interesting conversation whose origin is one simple comment on a deviation or journal.#Fella - About: Commenting4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This article is all about commenting, including a few commenting tips and thoughts on commenting by fellow deviants, as well as some resoures you might find helpful for commenting.
Keep in mind what kind of deviation it is you're commenting on, as there are different things to focus on in a visual artwork (e.g. colours, shading) than a literature piece (wording, grammar), for example. (DerangedSenpai)
You can use the "sandwich" technique for commenting: start with saying something positive, put negative comments in middle, and also end with something positive. (Sachi-pon)Be specific with your positive and negative statements. Don't just say "It's cute", but mention a reason why you think it's cute; w

Artwork copyright © Wilson Williams, Jr.
With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?

Teach your clients to commission an IllustrationA great question we get from readers who enjoyed our past post regarding, The Ten Questions you should ask before you Say "Yes" to illustrating someone's children's book is, "What resource can we direct them to if they aren't sure how to answer some of the ten questions?".Teach your clients to commission an Illustration3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Luckily we found an AMAZING free resource that you can direct them to. Randy Gallegos is dropping in to share this great resource that will inform any potential client of the information they need to come up with a price, understand what rights to ask for, and explains many aspects of the publishing and art creation process and how to approach an artist correctly.

.Portrait photography is not about making people look beautiful. Or showing perfect skin. Or sparkling eyes. Or hourglass silhouette. It is about seeing the beauty in them. And showing it to the world. Where there is no beauty in their soul, there is no beauty on their face..3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So thank you, Photography, for truly teaching me how to make a difference between good and bad people.
And from now on, I'm taking the photos I want to take. And no one will ever take my passion away from me.
