Foot prints crunched quickly in the snow. The snow...so white, that snow. That snow, tainted with innocence. That snow, printed with the footprints from the little girl. That little girl. That little girl was someone that I held very dear..
I kept a short distance between us, giving her the chance to feel victorious. I simply, bounced; sprinting on tip toes. She leaped; stiff little legged strides, filled with effort. The little girl came to a hault a couple feet ahead, reaching the top of the hill, mitten grasping firmly on the cold and wet branch of the old oak tree we knew oh so well. Snow fell softly around us. "Beat you!" She yipped excitedly with a giggle and jumped in happiness, working her little tannish-yellow boots into the chunky snow beneath her. I sighed a huff of cloudy breath, greeting the little girl with a smile and wag of the tail. She giggled again, grabbing my sleeve & pulling

Another year is almost over and it's time for my annual traditional art feature of artworks submitted in the year of 2012!
This is my favorite, the most difficult and the most time consuming art feature to make, as well as the one I'm never really satisfied with: it's a real pain to decide which works to include in this little collection when, just from this small part of the most amazing works dA is filled with you have the luck to find and see each year, you have at least a few hundreds of top

That right there is the link to my first Q&A video. Thank you all for asking so many questions! I'll be uploading more tomorrow and during the week, since I wasn't able to answer all of the questions this time around.
__________Official Sphinx OC Contest Information__________
Contest Dates/Timetable: October 1st to October 31st - Midnight to Midnight (EST)
Contest Theme: Create Your Own Sphinx Original Character
With the upcoming launch of my original manga, Sphinx (drawn by the wonderful WickedJuti), coming up on the horizon, I've decided to hold a full-fledged contest to help bring the community into the setting that I've created for this story. I also wanted to get a chance to support the amazing imagination that thrives here on deviantART, which has pushed me time and time again to continue my projects and pursue art. And by separating this contest into both v

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
— Ray Bradbury
So spoke the recently departed Ray Bradbury, a seminal (possibly the seminal) American fantasy & science fiction writer. Today, aspiring sci-fi and fantasy writers study his novels and short stories as their core ed

This topic is about rates and wages that an artist should start to consider when taking on a new job. This is my advice, so take this as advice.
So let’s begin. As an artist you should know right away that you are valuable. You can recreate people’s imagination and ideas into reality. You are the one who brings people together to be able to all see the vision for the final product. This is valuable. Keep this in mind when you take new jobs. Think about how many hours you plan on slaving over iteration after iteration. Because even though you may have a voice, if you agree to whatever the arrangement are, you must live up to their standards. So make sure you are paid well.
Imagine a client asks you to do 50 hours of work for only $500 dollars. That’s $10 an hour. That is not enough. You can go get a job that could pay you as much if not more, without being an artist. I’ve seen people’s salaries as low as 30k a year. This is not acc

Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989)
Hayao Miyazaki’s “Kiki's Delivery Service” is a heartfelt and inspiring movie.
Released by Studio Ghibli in 1989, it was based on Eiko Kadono's novel of the same title. It tells the story of a young witch having difficulty with stepping into adulthood and finding her own way forward,

KEEP ON READING OR YOUR EYES WILL IMPLODE.
One day, humon was surfing the internet.
She was just looking at her favorite pages when all of a sudden a new tab opened up.
She was confused, since she didn't click on any link whatsoever. The tab didn't show anything, just a white screen. When she tried to close the tab, nothing happened. She kept pressing the X to close it, but instead the tab turned to full size. Suddenly, the white screen of the tab turned completely black.
It wasn't only the tab screen that turned black, all the button and everything else on her screen did the same.
Even her mouse disappeared off the screen.
After a little while, she decided to turn her computer off because she simply thought it was broken.
This was a fatal mistake.
Out of nowhere, a full screen picture of :iconcaptainfanclub: appeared on the black screen.
It was most unexpected.

So there is this group of people on dA who take some already existing art and cut out the backgrounds. That's all. They find some artwork, usually anime fanart, cut the background out, add their own watermark and BAM post it to their galleries as a free to use stocks without the permission of the original authors.
What's most infuriating there is almost always a disclaimer such as this one :
Oi, dumbfucks! Yes I'm talking to you. Why should anyone credit you for something that you did not create. You've contributed nothing. You've cut the background out, something that in most cases, can be done basically automatically by a computer program with a little to no human assistance.
The whole dA's category for stock renders is flooded with this shit --> http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/stockart/3drenders/
I'm sorry but I was under the impression that a render is a 2d image generated from a 3d

Concept Art or Illustration career?Concept Artists are usually used at the beginning of a project, a movie or a video game for instance.Concept Art or Illustration career?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
They are skilled at inventing characters, props, environments (exterior and interior), weapons, vehicles etc.
They are briefed first, and then (depending on the project budget) are expected to sketch/paint a number of rough idea's for the required design.
Once an idea has been chosen (by whoever is in charge of the art design) the artist will be expected to develop the idea into something less rough but with more detail.
Once the person in charge is happy, the design is then given to another artist such as a 3D modeler, a costume designer, a matte painter etc who will then 'build' the design to be used in a movie or video game.
Concept art is not important to the average consumer. Concept art is generally 'disposable' art. Usually it is only specialist artists who purchase concept art books that contain the art from a particular movie or game.
The Concept artist will most likely see hi
