Please be careful WHAT you SELL for POINTS!Dear members,
as we all know this delicious new function has been enabled by DeviantART recently which allows you to sell content for points and keep the amazing amount of 80% of your share.
Overall this is a nice new function and we can't wait to see what you will do with it. We just want to warn you to be careful about one certain thing:
You should not sell high res files of your work for a small amount of points.
The few dimes people will spare by not having to pay shipping costs can do you badly.
There are a lot of companies, that take your dear work and print it on T- Shirts, books, posters and what not.
And in the past those companies at least had to put the efford into taking your art and retouching it. But shall you think about selling high res files for a small amount of points, greedy companies as that will have it even easier to take your art, distribute it big, and give you nothing of your share!
Companies from different countries, (especially countries

Fairytale FeatureHi everyone,Fairytale Feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
so Night Feature week is over and here is new one which you selected in my poll. Hope you like it as much as you like last one. This time there is many types of art, I tried to find fairytale paintings, photos, photomanipulations, sculptures or origami. And when I was browsing through them I fell in love with 3D origami. I've already made swan, penguin and peacock but I don't know if it's good idea to submit them here. (:
However I had same problem as last time - I found too much beautiful works so it was impossible to feature all of them so you can see rest of them in my collection called Fairytale http://larosedepetitprince.deviantart.com/favourites/51019791.
I'm happy for every comment so please let me know what you like or what can I improve. Thank you very much for your feedback. Please don't forget to vote in my new poll and select a theme for next journal!
Have a nice weekend!

Please Note: I try hard to keep up with my message center, but mostly, I'm buried. So I try to answer any questions asked (sometimes it'll take me a while, please be patient!) and I look at and fave all artwork made with my stock. I also try to leave comments now and again, but mostly, I'll just fave and run - please don't take that personally! I rather put up some new stock than copy-pasta some generic thank you message, I think you'll be in favour of that.

CONTEST- DEADLINE EXTENTION!OKAY! So I've extended the deadline for a bit. The deal is, my parents have been away for ten days or so, and I've had the house to myself for this time. Soooooo I ditched all art and dA business and yah. So I'm returning back to the system today. I'm extending the deadline mainly because I still have TONS of Commissions to draw and I don't want to keep the contest prize winners waiting for their art for a long time. I don't want to extend it for that long because so many have entered, however I am going away on holiday at the end of the month so I'm torn between ending it either before I go or as soon as I'm back. If I end it before I go I doubt I'll have much time to draw when I'm away. But I'll say for now that the new deadline is JULY 25thCONTEST- DEADLINE EXTENTION!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I'd recommend you get yourself some refreshment because there are rather a few and, as you will soon realise, they are not in any order at all, but I really hope you love them all as much as I do...

3. :iconsakimichan: She is blessed with a talent beyond believing. She inspired me to draw more humans, which I didn't like back in the days. I love her art so much, she has such great concepts and I love her style to death!! My favs:

Commission details C:haha, thought I better move the Comm details over to this account x'DCommission details C:4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love doing little characters like this in paint. So I thought I might open them up as comms.
My commission Rules
You can use the image for whatever you want. Once you've payed you're free to upload it where you want, use it as a line art, use it for frankendolling, print it off and burn it, eat it, use it for evil, I don't care aha. It's yours! So no need to ask me for permission. (yes this does include using the lineart you commissioned as a way for you to take comms, if I can help you make money while you help me make money and everybody's happy, then cool bananas)
Don't pay me until I've finished your commission. I don't like being paid before hand because it pressures me ;_;
chibi anthros are more fun for me to do in this style ouo But as you're all well aware I can draw animals and humans just fine too, so any kind of

Rising Stars of Photomanipulation Vol. 01.Rising Stars of Photomanipulation Vol. 013 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Names you should know: =Celairen
This Rising Stars series will highlight some artists who are developing good, strong photomanipulation skills and deserve your attention. Each of these artists shines in a unique way. This week, I am focusing on a fantastic up-and-coming Dark/Fantasy artist. Celairen has been on deviantART for 5 years and has shown dedication to developing her skills as well as becoming an involved and active part of the photomanipulation community. I hope you enjoy the brief interview and feature and take a moment to check out her really cool and eclectic gallery.
Program of choice: Photoshop
How did you get into photomanipulation?
I did not know at first what photomanipulation is. At first I thought that everything would be painted, and have admired the artist for it. That's about four years ago. I wanted to do something like this, too, but I used to do j
February Speed-paint Landscape Challenge!February Speed-paint Landscape Challenge!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: CHALLENGE STARTS TODAY!
Post finished works in the comments and it will be posted in this journal
With the success of the December challenge and being able to see the progress of the artists who contributed, it was definitely an incredible experience. So again I will be going to be doing another challenge, this time with the help of other artists. This months theme is Landscapes!
This is an area i am weak in and i would love to do this challenge with others who are looking to improve this part of their craft as well.
The way it works is there will be a photo designated for every other day. There is a two hour time limit with each piece, and my advice would be to use all of this time wisely. There will be two critiquing sessions one around the 15th, and the other at the end of the month so using all the time allotted would be to your benefit.
Only rule: NO TRACING!!!! We will tear you a new one in the critique so DONT DO IT!! We

A hat for Vana (Contest)Sooo I've thought about this for a while and I might regret it soon but I really want to do a small contest. x) No, I haven't forgotten about the winners of the previous one, I will try to get them done during summer break. But I need help with something so why not make it a small contest?A hat for Vana (Contest)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know if people are gonna be interested, but if not, oh well, less work for me!
Soo what is it about? Well, as you can guess, it's about my fursona again. As you can see on her ref, Vana has this hat she likes to wear. Vana likes hats.
BUT there's a problem. In summer it can get quite hot. Vana can't stand heat too well in general, and she certainly can't wear her hat then. But it'd be nice if she could wear a hat that'd keep her head cool and keep the sun out of her eyes (she isn't too fond of wearing sunglasses for too long).
So I gave Vana this hat.
Thing is, the hat's design is quite bland and boring, and I cannot come up with an
