There are some tips and notes below that may help you recognize these signs sooner and therefore improve your ability to connect successfully with good job partners. A client or artist will seldom display all of the good or bad signs described below. However, watching for the following list items may help you to assess a potential workmate as a good risk or a bad one BEFORE work begins. Similarly, if you strive to embody the positive characteristics listed below, they may help you to attract better clients/artists and engage in more successful and fulfilling partnerships.FREELANCING TIPS: Good jobs and bad jobs2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Group Rules and FAQRulesGroup Rules and FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hi folks! We've updated our rules, as of 16 June 2014, because we've becoming increasingly concerned at potential plagiarism, maybe even theft, of image previews used in some literature submissions. We think this is important, so we're clarifying and tightening up the rules in this area. See below for details, or the bottom of the Journal for a justification for the changes.
Please bear in mind that this Journal is intended to be a reference point with clarifications and explanations or our rules - we don't expect everyone to read the whole thing!
At WritersInk, we're trying to make writing fun again. We're trying to encourage writers to discuss each other's work, to be free with feedback, and to help each other grow and feel good about our writing.
In order to keep the group fair and successful, we need to lay down a couple of ground rules. Nothing too draconian - just things that we think will ensure the group is a better place for everyone.
Our rules are:

CopycatsIt's true - no one in this world can be 100% original and there is nothing wrong with being inspired. But when someone attempts to make a duplicate of your image in your style using your art as a raw template/blueprint, that's what I call copying.Copycats9 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you decide to copy someone else's work, the least you can do is credit or put your own ideas into it. Don't use or attempt to duplicate their layout. Don't make a blueprint out of their art and use it for your own. There is a big difference between inspiration and copying! Have some pride in yourself! Don't copy others for the sake of your PRIDE. If you get heavily inspired, don't leave out the credits. If you want to become an artist or fulfill it as a serious hobby, act like an artist with individuality. Try to be unique, find your own style, and stop using others for your own benefit. Even if you do copy, don't think that the original creator of the idea may never find yo

Nuances of an Annual Ritual
Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

Just to let you know that I've created The Writers Corner. Currently you can submit one article a week.
I'm rather excited to see what world building ideas you have and how your worlds work - Especially the Creation Mythologies and Magic systems.
When you go to the Writers Corner folder you'll see that there are a number of sub-folders as discussed in the previous journal article. They are as follows:
Characters & Legendary Heroes
Governments, Guilds and Civilisations
Trade & Economics
Points Of Interest
Arts & Festivals
Science & Technology
If you can try and submit your articles to the correct folder it will help greatly with moderation Also if you have any other ideas or suggestions then drop a comment or send me a PM.
P.S. You may have also noticed that I'm working through the other folders and collating the submitted artwork in to further sub-folders so it's easier to find the type of artwork you're looking f

Request GaloreAfter having some fun working on small scale requests (more like a art trade with a buddy) and working on other things then only designs I thought it would be nice to see, or ask, what people would like to see me work on next. As it stands I have currently 1 sketch ready for a character and some ideas for the regular technical designs for Chronicles of Man. But like I said after the trade and working on other drawings, like Felina Feral (Swat Kats) I like to work on some other kinds of work.Request Galore2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The characters are quite some fun and a nice departure from what I am used to be making yet I am quite sure there are other technical designs that would be fun to work on besides the CoM, Star Trek and some fighterjets (which are fun as well).
So what does this 'state of mind' mean... very simple I want to see what you guys/girls want and I will try to work some of the ideas out if there are suggestions. So feel free to take a look at the gallery to get an idea what I have worked on and make a sugg
