Undervalued workRecently I came across this contest. The contest mentions specific requirements and asks for a paperback cover with 2 characters on it. The prize includes 2500 dA points to the winner... 2500 dA points!!! That is less than even $30!Undervalued work4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I used to think that people like writers, artists, musicians, they are all alike. They think the same way and value all art. But with time I realized that this isn't necessarily true. There are those who value other people's time and effort. And then there are those who don't.
A lot of artists think that they should get just about any commission they can get their hands on just to get into the business and then gradually make their way up. Most of these are the same artists who want to make a living from their art sometime in the future. But what they don't realize is that this is what underpaid work is going to get you: an overlo

Get your art published amongst some of the top artists on deviantart such as
:iconchancake:, :icontituslunter:, :iconvmbui:, :iconyamio:, :iconelsevilla:
"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

September Draw-Off!Hello everypony!September Draw-Off!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The August Draw-Off was amazing, and we had a ton of very awesome art submitted to the contest! But now that it's over, it's time to move on to our third Draw-Off contest!
Every month, we host a contest for everyone to participate in. We decide upon a central theme, and all entries must be centered around that theme. Once the submission deadline has passed, the group administrators will vote on the winning entry.
These contests are open to anyone who is a member of our group. Additionally, each member is only allowed one submission into the contest. We have also created a specific folder for this event, and only entries submitted to that folder will be accepted.
As always, our basic group rules do apply to this contest. This means that submissions may not contain gore, sexual or suggestive poses, abuse of drugs, religious or political references, etc. If you have any questions about the rules, please just post a comment in this journal and we'll be happy to help!
Contest rules and deadline. Writers read below.Alright! Well, there was a lot of confusion last night. I rushed when I made the journal then promptly went to sleep.Contest rules and deadline. Writers read below.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is how it works:
You can draw your favorite video game character.
You can write your favorite video game character.
You can cosplay as your favorite video game character.
Yes! You can use YOUR characters from rift, WoW, and others. As long as it has your tag on it somewhere. When I mean tag, I mean username or something to let me know it's yours.
You can cross dress, if you can not draw female/male figures well, or just want to. ;u;
You can submit more than one. Only one will be picked, if you do happen to win.
The folder I will be using is:
Now remember, it's the opposite gender, so remember that!
Here's how we'll be judging:
Two winners from the drawings, two winners from the lit area, and two winners from the cosplay area.
Two 12 month subs.
Two 3 month subs.
Two 1 month subs.
How to make money outside and inside DeviantArtThis is meant more for younger, newer deviants who have run into a spot of trouble making some extra cash,How to make money outside and inside DeviantArt4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I see many people posting how they make no money on their prints through DeviantArt.
To me, it just seems like all you need is a lesson in business.
First, before you do anything, realize what our "Target Audience" is.
Do you draw anime? Or do you take pictures of cute animals? Or are you into realism? Let's face it, you aren't going to find very many older people who enjoy fine art on the internet. Try and figure out what age group your work appeals to.
Second, use DeviantArt as your "Warehouse"
DeviantArt is great. You can showcase your products and then ship them to people without you doing anything. However it is an Art Community. In DeviantArt, you work is only shown to other artists, to get more money you have to use DeviantArt as your Warehouse. It will supply the customer, but you need to bring the customer to the site.
Deviantart is fairly appealing, but lets face it, man
Contest!Ok, well obviously, the gender swap has the most votes! So, this is how it will work. You will need to draw your favorite character from one video game transformed into the opposite gender. Not hard, right?Contest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's the catch, the winner will get a 12 month sub to dA! Second place three month and third gets the one month.
Do the prizes seem fair? There will be two winners for each group to make it even fair. The co-founder and I will pick our favorites and we will let you guys vote on them. Does that seem fair? If not, let me know.

How to Make Me Care in StoriesThe following four qualities are not requirements by any means for me to enjoy a story in any medium, but they certainly help to let me invest myself deeper into the plot and characters.

1: The Heroes at a Disadvantage
This is a sadly dying art, but one that got me interested in storytelling at a young age. The triumph over adversity is a classic but for me always compelling story to experience, and in order for the triumph to feel earned and victorious there must be an element of risk. A lot of modern day tales seem to feel the audience will not accept a hero/heroine who is not a flawlessly skilled fighter, possesses super human abilities, or is prophesied to be the only hope. The truth is however that as 'cool' as it is to watch our protagonist cle

This is something that has been bothering me for a while now.
My name on Deviantart is Dorian (as you would know if you looked on my page)
Now i don't like openly talking about this because everyone has their different views on the world, though most people i know in real life/ and here on the internet are very open with who I am and what I'm about to go through.
/I actually don't think I've ever really said this officially by telling you guys... for the reasons of (1. I dislike having a lot of attention drawn to it and (2. because i have always had you people refer to me as a guy / male / boy / so it has never been a problem.
So to cut it a bit shorter (as most of you know)
I am a Trasman /or/ Transgendered // Gender identity disorder.
please don't ask me a million questions, but i am happy to help if anyone needs someone to talk to about it
I came out to my mom over seven months ago fully and now I am starting to get treatment for it.

New Korra Trailer Released**Contains Legend of Korra Season 1 Spoilers**New Korra Trailer Released1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And honestly, I'm not feeling it. Doug Walker (aka The Nostalgia Critic) has been doing a series where he's been vlogging his experience watching the original Avatar series for the first time (Take a look they're actually really good go watch them! http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/specials ). He's a new fan to the series and his enthusiasm and critique of the original series has only helped to intensify my loathing and hatred of The Legend of Korra's disastrous season finally.
The more I remember how amazing and awesome the original Avatar series is, the less I am interested in picking up the pieces and following these unlikable characters through another series of exploits, especially after haphazardly killing off the main villain in such a clumsy and awkward way. Not only that, but there's no growth to the main character at all. There's no journey of her learning how to be an Air Bender the way there was

HELPFUL HINT #2 - HOW TO COMPLETE YOUR PET PROJECTWant to improve your drawing skills - maybe even finish a project, like a graphic novel of a comic, but you're too bsy with work or school? There's a simple solution to this common problem. I learned it from a friend - a well-known Hollywood screenwriter:HELPFUL HINT #2 - HOW TO COMPLETE YOUR PET PROJECT9 months ago in Personal More Like This
You have to work on your project every day - HOWEVER - limit it to one hour. That's right. Just one hour a day. And to do this, steal an hour in the morning by starting your day just one hour earlier. And devote 60 minutes to your artwork. You'll find that the consistency of doing it every day - even if it's only for an hour - will result in real progress. A few months passes, and before you know it, you're done. That's how my screenwriter-friend was able to complete two projects at the same time.
Remember - IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PAGE COUNT. What do I mean by that? Simply that it doesn't matter if, one week, you end up with only 2 pages of good material, or 5 pages, just keep adding those pages!
Most people work in spur
Contest 28- Spitfire Holiday Contest In the Judge's Section:Contest 28- Spitfire Holiday Contest7 months ago in Personal More Like This
What the judges were saying: Dwarfdraco Not only has illustrated all seven dwarfs plus Snow White, but has also made an entire scene out of it, incorporating the personalities of each character! Wow!
What the judges were saying: The judges love to see characters who're hardly ever drawn! This picture of Lambert and his mother really made us smile, and really captures the love and warmth of the Christmas holiday. -- Click on the image to view -- it's animated.
What the judges were saying: Definitely one of the most creative entries! How does a mermaid celebrate Christmas? A coral tree, of course. The judges also enjoyed the stylization of Ariel and the lovely traditional medium.
Oz: Everything Wrong With Modern FilmThis following journal will have no slights against The Avengers.Oz: Everything Wrong With Modern Film1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I know I can be negative, but it's films like Oz: The Great and Powerful that make me concerned that SOMEONE has to be.
I was going to do an 'Analyzing and Improving' review of sorts of this film, but the problem is that that core of the movie is so trite and flimsy there's nothing to repair and nothing to improve upon.
This is especially sad because included on the DVD I saw was a mini-documentary on how one of Walt Disney's greatest aspirations was to make a movie for Oz...and the way the company honored a great storyteller who cared about characters and innovation, was to make a derivative, empty, lifeless special effects demo reel.
The special aspect of this film though is how, blow by blow, The Great and Powerful Oz is a text book example of EVERYTHING wrong with modern filmmaking.
The positives first. In keeping with its bizarre consistency with the zeitgeist, Oz has exceptional A-List acting talent, marvelo

He kills the drawing as you would imagine, and does it with a freaking #2 pencil! I love but am too jealous of Mad's mad skillz!!
