The Commissioner's Guide to Proper Etiquette tips & tricks to ensure that the artist does not hate your guts after you commission themThe Commissioner's Guide to Proper Etiquette4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Take the time to realize this is aimed at commissioners, not artists. Yes, there are a ton of things artists fuck up on, trust me, I know. Oh, I know. However that alone could be a whole 'nother journal- which I might go ahead and do because I've had frustrating experiences with artists. When I'm talking about bad commissioners here though, I'm talking about the worst of the worst. Why on earth do I think a timid question 3 weeks after your commission was accepted asking about how it's going is "badgering"?
These are things I've witnessed, I'm talking about the horribly entitled, belittling, superior attitude commissioners! The ones that send you a billion notes and PMs asking when their art will be done, and rudely, when it's only been 3 days! So no, I'm not saying artists should step all over you- because trust me, some will. And by god, they sh

The Book that Travels the WorldToday I want to invite everyone to join a wonderful project, I was recently told about it and I think it's a beautiful thing to be a part of: a book that travels the world collecting art from every place it visits.The Book that Travels the World3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The project was started by Traumfaengerin-Wish with this idea: "I want to create a book that travels around the world, from one deviant to another. Each deviant can add his part to the book, a drawing, poem,a little story, photos, etc.
I want to reach every corner of the world with this book, to see how wide our network reaches, to let other people see how wide we are connected, to let them be able to touch, to hold the proof in their hands."
Two books are already traveling and a third book is on the making. 216 people already signed in, the books will visit 52 countries, and counting! Everyone is welcome to join and share some of their art with people from all over the world. Once the book is finished there's talks about getting it published!

Improving image composition!Sometimes the details of our illustration look great, but then when we step back and look at the composition... it's a little boring or muddy or crowded or our eyes wander away from the parts that looked so good up close... Where are our focal points? Why doesn't this illustration grab my attention and hold it? Composition can make or break a piece. Here are some links that show examples of good and bad compositions and describe why certain layouts are more successful than others. Various tips and rules are described and illustrated. I hope you'll enjoy these as much as I do.Improving image composition!4 years ago in Personal More Like This

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a

Thank you so much for doing this interview, could you tell us a bit about yourself?
To tell the truth, I always become a little confused when it comes to describing who I actually am (my personality). So, my name is Evelin, I study journalism at Moscow State University. Apart from my commitment to culinary, I have a real passion for foreign languages (I’m learning Japanese and Korean), martial arts and I pleasure in the company of different odd-birds.

SAY NO TO FREE ARTEvery day, there are more and more posts on here seeking "artists" for everything from auto graphics to comic books to corporate logo designs. More people are finding themselves in need of some form of illustrative service.SAY NO TO FREE ART8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But what they're NOT doing, unfortunately, is realizing how rare someone with these particular talents can be.
To those who are "seeking artists", let me ask you; How many people do you know, personally, with the talent and skill to perform the services you need? A dozen? Five? One? none?
More than likely, you don't know any. Otherwise, you wouldn't be posting on here to find them.
And this is not really a surprise.
In this country, there are almost twice as many neurosurgeons as there are professional illustrators. There are eleven times as many certified mechanics. There are SEVENTY times as many people in the IT field.
So, given that they are less rare, and therefore less in demand, would it make sense to ask your mechanic to work on your car for free? Woul
