Here's a sample of responses I've heard from some editors over the years when I've raised practical business concerns regarding comic book publishing:
"No, we don't know exactly what books you'll be doing, but we're (insert name of big publisher) Comics, so sign exclusive with us and not (insert name of competing publisher who has titles ready for you)!"
"This is a (insert name of big writer) book! I know he's late, but just think of how many people would love to be in your shoes!"
"The page rate isn't good, but at least you'll be getting to work with (name of big superhero whom you're supposed to be a fan of)!"
"We won't fly you out or put you into a hotel, but you should come so you can sign at the booth for us! Who doesn't love signing autographs?"
What do these statements have in common? They're emotional arguments made to sidestep yo

Odyssey Propulsion 7
He who birthed the strange tale into our world with a spurt of kaleidoscopic intergalactic vomit has now decided its end. CliveBarker has chosen his favorite Chapter Eight to bring the multi-imagined Hydra-headed beast of a story to the end. All that remains is Chapter Eight illustration submissions remaining open for the next two weeks. And with the perfect visual, Odyssey II: Propulsion will become another hallmark in deviantART history.
So many writers and artists from around the world contributed amazing gifts of their wildest imaginations, collaborating with each other and offering suggestions and encouragement to

5 Reasons to WriteI wrote a blog once that urged comic artists to try writing their own books. I held back a bit on what I said--Punk Rock Jesus hadn't come out yet, so I didn't feel like I had the proper authority to really speak up.5 Reasons to Write3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since then, there's been a lot more discussion about the etiquette of publishers toward their freelancers, the recent rise of creator owned books, and the effects of Hollywood moving into comics (or vice versa). And as friend of mine at Newsarama pointed out recently, I'm one of a few guys who's found a middle ground--not only because I'm writing and drawing my own book, but because my OGN is partially owned by DC Comics.
Certain events of the last year have created new concerns within our industry. Do you still need to work for big publishers if you want to "make it"? Do they deliver a better product than creator owned books? Are the Big Two treating creators as fairly as they've always been? Between the rise of digital comics and comic-based movies, are creators getting

Free Artwork is not something I doAnd you shouldn't either.Free Artwork is not something I do2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I only direct your attention here because I receive a LOT of requests of for free artwork, whether it be logos, character design and sometimes even graphic novels all intended to be for free.
I'm a working professional making a living with my art. So clearly I won't be doing art for free, when it's my job to do it. BUT, I also support the idea that even artists who work freelance or even just as a hobby shouldn't work for free.
Please check out this video by Stephen Silver who explains this way better than I ever could

This is NOT directed towards people who have general opinions (go ahead, have em'). This is a response to some of the recent EXTREME attitudes that I've seen around here and Tumblr. If you don't like candid opinions, please click here. You will not be disappointed.
It's probably more in defense of TTGO than BTB, since I've seen more people grumble about that show. Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go are not the same show. Let's get that straight out. It's not a continuation, it is a variation. If you can understand that, then maybe it will be less painful for you.

September Draw-Off!Hello everypony!September Draw-Off!3 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!

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.

SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?Every single cosplayer in the world has one painful problem that we can all relate to: we're always broke. Always.SAVING MONEY AS A COSPLAYER... IS IT POSSIBLE!?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fabric, thread, machines, paints, wood, tools, thermoplastics, LEDs, mould castings, brushes, dyes, wigs, make-up, contacts, boots, prosthetics, convention tickets, travel expenses, luggage, skin care, gym... the list goes on and on. Every single cent we earn, we constantly throw it all back into making our beloved costumes and feeling good for a few hours while stressing for months prior-hand. Non-cosplayers may not get it, but we do. For us, it's not a sacrifice. The chance to hone our creative spirit and create something from nothing is a rewarding life experience. Some think that the cost of an outfit is more valuable compared to medication and psychological sessions.
But like it not, we've all gotta come to a conclusion that the hobby must come to an end for us one day, and to have some money saved up for your next step in life is a greater advantage than having nothi

Why Street Photography is not documentaryStreet photography is an eye focused on the ordinary, on the every day life.Why Street Photography is not documentary1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Its interest is in capturing every day moments and situations that filtered through the sensitivity, vision, personality of the photographer are able to pass emotions and sensations to the viewer.
Moments can be of every kind: ironic, sad, melancholic, surreal, beautiful, wry, tender, poetic, destabilizing, iconic, descriptive. They all show aspects of life.

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 DeviantArt5 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

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
What Should Freelancers Charge For Their Art?If you're a full-time freelance artist as I am (or for some of you part-time) ...its important to KNOW your worth when it comes to your work! Which begs the question, what should you charge for your art if you're starting a career as a freelancer? Alot of people ask me what i charge for my ART or they don't know what they should charge for their own art. Well to be honest, I didnt know shit either when i first started, I just simply scoured the internet looking for ANY info on what other pros were charging and I looked at the quality of their work compared to mine and based my rates off of that. So it's really difficult to figure out what's an acceptable charge/rate when you first start freelancing. Unfortunately, Most professionals do not share their rates publicly for many reasons...the main reason being is they simply don't want to lose ground in or trade their negotiating power for their future clients.
