Reproduction Work: An Essay Made for Learnin'One thing I've noticed about all plagiarists: the first thing they do when caught is to claim ignorance. "I didn't mean to infringe!" "I love your art!" "I never said -outright- it wasn't original--I was only -redrawing-."Reproduction Work: An Essay Made for Learnin'3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ugh. That word.
Take a seat next to teacher here and let's have us a talk.
That word is not some magic coverall for trying to pass someone else's work off as your own--and you ARE trying to pass it off as your own if you're changing signatures, names, etc. with no mention as to the original creator or characters you're appropriating. We have a word for that shit...say it with me now...plaaaagiaaarismmmm. Good job.
But, Teacher! Isn't copying a way to learn from other people?
The short answer is: Sure it is! Just don't be a douchebag about it.
I was fortunate enough in my education to be forced to take a Master's Class. For 20 weeks we did nothing but reproduce classical works by artists like Da Vinci and Michelangelo in charcoal and pastel--and I hated eve

My Bachelor Thesis Project, everyone.

Interview with FlipflopperyThe project of featuring comic artists is back!Interview with Flipfloppery4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome here and let me introduce you, Flipfloppery, who is a really talented artist with an amazing and interesting comic called, Awaken.
♣ Let's start simple. Please, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hey! I'm Koti Saavedra, aka Flipfloppery on the internet, I'm 27 and I'm from Chile. I graduated from animation some years ago and I was working as an animator in a studio I co-founded until recently, but right now I'm in the process of making my webcomic Awaken my full time job. I like creating stories and characters the most, so I'm aiming to do that for a living.

Before we get into the thick of things, we didn’t have a photo of our huge plasma screens hanging from the convention ceiling to share in our Day 1 recap, so we vowed to get that to you today! The 11 foot wide screens stream amazing works of art from Artists' Alley participants to the whole convention floor!
In Comic-Cons past, the foot traffic In Artists’ Alley got busier and busier as the week progressed, and this year is no exception. There’s something magical about speaking one-on-one with a deviant, learning their experiences, hearing how they started as an artist, and how far they’ve come. It’s an emotional connection to make with someone who was practically a stranger a few moments ago -- and then you realize you’re not really strangers when you

Let's see.Interview with Maxy9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
♣ Let's start simple. Please, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hi, I'm maxyvert from a little country,Hungary. I'm 21 and currently attending to an art university. I like making comics and illustrations one day I'd like to make a fully hand-painted comic.
♣ What inspired you to make comics?
When I was 9, I started to read W.i.t.c.h. magazines, and I really liked the style and the story so I wanted to make similar things.
A bit of a ramble from me to youHello everyone! Long time no see.A bit of a ramble from me to you3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to take this time to reflect on some things.
I was talking to Moorina and she inspired me to write this in detail and share with you all ^^
I've been doing doujin work and publishing in Japan for 4 years now... looking back, there has been a ton of sacrifices and bad decisions to be made. My life in general was kinda weird.
This is quite personal, but I though I'd share my life/experience with you guys.
My family was never well off. A lot of our friends don't know of our situation, of course. Our mother was gambling every single day and our father was never home. Mom would take all day looking around the house for hidden cash (stashed from my dad) while dad goes out to play pool with his friends. Our family borrows money from relatives and that's how we get by. If you go back to my journal entries from 2004, those were the days where we had to go to the internet cafe just to use the net because we couldn't afford to pay for anything per month

TO YOU ASPIRING ARTISTS...FROM JOE MADUREIRAHere's some of the most amazing and invaluable advice you'll most-likely ever get from one of my good colleagues and legends in comics/gaming, creator JOE MADUREIRA.

*WARNING: SOME MATURE LANGUAGE*
"DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL ARTIST?
Or a successful WORKING PROFESSIONAL?
Believe it or not there is a difference. I'm not usually a soapbox type guy, I don't like instructing people, and I think I'm a terrible teacher. But hey, it's Friday and I'm in a strange mood. So here goes:
I've noticed that a good number of my fans happen to be aspiring artists themselves. This is for all you guys. I get asked constantly: "Where should I go to school?" "What classes should I take?" "What should I study for anatomy?" "What pencils and paper do you use?" "Should I be working digitally now instead of traditionally?" "How do I fix my poses? Learn composition? Perspective?" "When
Interview with Sergi BrosaIn celebration of Digital Art Month, here is the first of a series of interviews done to the authors of some of the site's most popular digital deviations of all time. In this occasion I bring you Brosa, creator of The Retro of TomorrowInterview with Sergi Brosa2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Retro of Tomorrow
I'm Sergi Brosa, a spanish artist located in Barcelona. I'm 25 years old, and I am an illustrator, comic artist and concept artist trying to survive in this wild world. I usually work as a comissioned artist, and I have tried two times to enter the french comic industry, with no success.
So, I keep just taking comissions, sometimes from companies and sometimes from usual people. I have to say that it is a fun job because it's never the same thing. B
Artists Beware + A Chargeback FraudEdit: this journal has been mentioned around lately because some people want to warn others about another Paypal scammer (Lunarium-Luna ), so I'm updating it with a link to a journal about this new scammer:Artists Beware + A Chargeback Fraud7 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello Lovely people,
Today, I stumbled upon several journals by members who all got scammed by one person. Pixlett / ToxicMutagen (who deactivated their accounts today) scammed more than 3,000 USD from more than 20 artists by filling chargebacks just after a while from paying for adopts or commissions. And apparently, they can do the same with points too.

I can't really do anything but to share this with you in hope you won't get scammed by this person.
Here are some journals written about this issue:
The Shut-in Princess (storybook)Firstly, I want to share an interview I did with MzzAzn !

Tip of the day: The darkest momentsThe moment to shine the brightest is in darkness. Darkness can bring chaos but with it comes opportunity. Many times throughout my career when I pushed past the point when I'd usually give up, this is when I end up achieving my biggest successes. Fate seems to have a way to test us and only the ones that want it the most shall receive the fruits of their labor.Tip of the day: The darkest moments3 years ago in Personal More Like This
