How is your Chroma?As artists we all know that color is our friend, whether full spectrum, monochromatic, or simply black and white. But knowing just how to use this very special friend can be frustrating at times or just downright confusing (trust me, I've been there plenty before!) This blog is for those of us who work traditionally (not to worry my futuristic friends, I'll be writing a blog specifically for you as well!) Here are some terms you need to become acquainted with: chroma, value, tint, shade, and intensity/saturation.How is your Chroma?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn'tThere are several artist blues I know of, since I have experienced practically all of them during the past few months since 2011. I will write about how I got them, how I overcome them. What helped, what didn't.Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn't2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of these blues are professional freelance blues, happens to those who are making their own series/productions and when there's money and risk involved.
Some of these blues are shared by all artists.
Before the production even starts, the fear of it failing caused me to think about failing instead of success. It makes me hesitate about actually working on the project before I even produce anything.
What helped- Refocus on what I am making the project for, what's the true message I try to convey with the project, make that shine, and try to choose a cheap launch platform that makes it cost-effective.
What didn't help- trying to level up on art skill. It helped with my overall art as work for hire, it didn't help with

Am I doing this right?The enemy will always try to turn your attention away from Jesus and bring your attention back to yourself. Am "I" acting righteously here? Am "I" putting others first, or just trying to benefit myself? Is "my" motivation for doing this right? Am "I" acting good enough to represent my God to others? And while you are trying to be anti-selfish, by worrying about whether "YOUR" motivation is righteous enough or not, you are actually being self-centered. Trying to make yourself appear super-righteous in front of others is just self-righteousness.Am I doing this right?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't worry about trying to "act" righteous enough in front of others. You know that Jesus is good and righteous and His Word is true. God says you are counted as righteous no matter what you do, not because of your own righteous acts, but because you've trusted in His righteousness (Ephesians 2:8). Before you knew Jesus, your attempt to be righteous on your own was futile. But now that you are a "new creation" (2 Corinthians 5:17), the good thin

Some comments from the judges: "I love how in the description you describe how the subject just happened along when you were searching for a model. The image is exceptionally clean and clear. The detail is stunning! The colors vibrant! One gets the feeling they could reach out and touch it, in they have a mind to."
2nd Place Winner:
Some comments from the judges: "Overall Impression: This is beautiful. The flowers were captured in a marvelous way, and I love how you made the whole picture look like, in my opinion, pearls. It is not lifeless black and white, but shining pearls, and it makes it gorgeous. This touch is also very creative compared to other pieces where the colors were not changed at all.

Common Misconceptions: Crediting + CopyrightsHello everyone! In this “Common Misconceptions” blog we’ll be discussing “crediting” and basic copyright issues that have been circling around our community! As always, if you have any issues after reading this (or have any other points to add/knowledge to share)Common Misconceptions: Crediting + Copyrights2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I can upload images I like that I found from around the internet
Absolutely not. This is DeviantART, the images you upload should either have been made by you, or you have permission to upload them. It’s also expressly against dA’s terms of service. If this is something you do, I warn you to stop. This is an offense that can result in being suspended or banned from deviantART. Furthermore, this is theft pure and simple. Don’t take anything that doesn’t belong to you. You wouldn’t want someone taking your hard work and using it without permission, so don’t put another artist in
