800 points = around $10.
400 points = around $5
40 points = ˘50
Do you really want to spend a long amount of time on a drawing only to receive the equivalent of half a dollar?
If you want to share things for cheap or free because you enjoy doing it than by all means do so, but what I'm saying is, don't under value yourself, and for the love of god don't do commissions for 5 or 10 points. You're working for next to nothing if you do that.
What you need to do is find a good place to sell your art so you can sell it at a reasonable fair price that's fair to both you and the buyer. There are places around on dA for this.
Commissions-R-Us say that "A group dedicated to helping people in the search of commissions to be made, allowing them to find somebody to request a commission from deviants at different ways to pay, such as using the Deviantart Points, paypal, etc.
We also have a Priority Commission List for those who are in need of money! Please check them out! "
Alicorn TwilightAt the moment, the episode has not come out yet. Though, alicorn Twilight has been something hinted at since season one, and as a writer I am excited to see change and appreciate the possibility of having some clarity on the mythology of Equestria. I highly doubt the show creators would break the friendship of the characters, nor would they make Twilight "Outlive" her friends. Remember who the target audience is: Young, impressionable little girls with dreams of being their own princess in some way. To see a character they are familiar with becoming a princess, not from being related to royalty but instead from her own hard work and diligence is inspiring for a young child.Alicorn Twilight1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We've seen many princesses who are given this role from the start. Our poor, Disney girls always pining for something more, sitting in their sheltered life longing for a prince or an adventure. Instead, we are seeing a young woman who has EARNED her place as a princess from her kindness, knowledge, and her experienc
How To Write A Critique For A ProfessionalProfessionals like myself will occasionally ask for a critique on something or other that we've done. I'm going to explain how to do a critique for someone like myself. I'm going to tell you now that this was brought on by a critique I received from someone who never did a critique before and had no idea how to do it.How To Write A Critique For A Professional10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Read Other Critiques
The worse thing you can do for yourself is write a critique when you have no idea what you're doing. It will be promptly rejected as it's very obvious to the person reading it. If you've never written one the best thing you CAN do is look at some critiques from other people. Example, I'm a writer so look at critiques that were done on other literature pieces. Also keep in mind that I'm a novelist so look for critiques for short stories instead of poetry or lyrics. They're a completely different genre.
If you're going to say something negative about a piece explain why you think it's bad and make sugge
To be an Artist - Advises for Beginners Be patient, progress can´t be forced to happen over night!To be an Artist - Advises for Beginners2 months ago in Personal More Like This
You want to be a great artist? Welcome to the club! Now lets take a look on how that works.
Talent - Whats that?!
Talent, a word with many meanings. For me personally it means to be able to learn certain things faster. Talent doesn´t mean you can draw or built everything without training and learning. You´ll just be faster in learning the skills then an untalented person who would have to exercise maybe twice as long as you.
People say I got talent. But I invested over 10 years of exercise and training in my art, it was hard work.
Expectations - To high?
You draw for a year now and joined dA some months ago and still you´re unnoticed?
It may be depressing, but thats normal. Every artist starts as a beginner. Its like a game, you start on

The Llama Badge SongGive a llama,The Llama Badge Song1 year ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Get a llama,
And maybe another little llama.
I have lots of badges,
I even got a cake.
But then I saw the way,
Of the llama badge.
I got a llama badge,
And it told a tale.
So now listen, for a little while,
About the llama badge.
Did you ever get a llama?
Or a super?
Or the albino llama?
Ninjas of llamas?
Is this how it's told now?
Is it all so gold?
Is it made of rainbows?
Now I am getting sad,
I've run out of badges.
Time for me to trade badges,
And level up.

Random Doom vs Group ArtHello little *yaawn*. Uh! Sorry, I woke up early today. Thanks to my brother's dog, I've been waking up 6 a.m. These days..Random Doom vs Group Art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, there are some things I want to talk about. In recent days, I've gotten quite many questions about Random Doom and when I am gonna update it and/or if I have stopped making it. People ask this even in my group related art! Which I honestly find a bit rude....
Groups... I'll get back to them in a bit but I need to say something first... I am and I try to be very positive person. But honestly... I've been feeling quite sad... Quite sometime. I know I don't show it and honestly I don't want to bother you people with my personal issues but... I've been feeling bad these days. And this is because of this whole Random Doom vs Group art. I LOVE the groups I am in and the people I have met through them and creating art for them is really enjoyable. But every single time I upload a new group art, I can HEAR the collected sighs and feel the disappointment of peopl
Update on my Stolen Art FolderMy art folder, full of my progress works and a whole heap of notes, sketches and thumbnails was stolen over a week ago. Most of you will remember I put up an appeal for the thieves to give it back.Update on my Stolen Art Folder4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I went back to the shopping center it was stolen in. I'd already checked with the concierge to see if it had been handed in Tuesday last week, but they had nothing, so my hope was fairly thin. It was more the desperate hope of a person who KNOWS they've lost something, but just can't give p and admit it's gone. Not just yet.
Well, it was lucky I didn't. The lady at the desk remembered me, and as I asked in that weak little miserable tone one gets when you expect the answer to be platitudes and apologies she brightened up and opened up the cupboard behind her. "A T2 bag, wasn't it?" DARE I hope that she had it? After all, T2 bags are really all the same and I can't be the only one to have lost it...
But sure enough, there it was! Drawing folder and all! More amazing still wa
Username changedHello little deerlings!Username changed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yes! I changed my username. I know! I know! I was BtG six years and people will be confused but I really wanted to change it! I don't regret it! I love my new name!
As you might guess, my new name is inspired by my new persona. (Tamarin is a monkey specie if you didn't know). I've been really wanting to make this place more personal.
As for my old name.... I think I it is time to reveal WHAT BtG stands for... Are you ready? BtG means:
Behind the Grave
Surprised? Here's little fun facts. Behind the grave is my original comic series I created when I was... 14 or 15? It was back then when I was still a HUGE The Nightmare Before Christmas fan and thus inspired by it, BtG is about characters named, Veruka Nocturn (living dead), Edna Ashburton (witch), Walter "Walt" Howard (wereworlf) and Danny the minidemon. (hmm.... how familiar).
Back then I used the comic name on internet because I liked it but now I feel that I should let the comic have the name.
What is a Brony?While for a while the term Brony was used to mean boy, teenager or adult male who likes my little pony: friendship is magic, in this group we use the word to mean anybody who likes the show. A gender neutral word. Similarly to how "Cool story bro" isn't always directed at males.What is a Brony?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Bronies, to me, are anybody who likes the show, no matter how much they like it.
False terms. Sane vs Rabid.
People obsess over all sorts of things don't they? I remember when I was younger being completely obsessed with Pokémon. I'd want all the games, I'd watch all the shows, I'd want all the trading cards. I still have many of my trading cards now because they still give me happiness when I can play with them with my friends. Did that make me a rabid Pokémon fan? No.
I think we all could use a bit of child like joy like that in our lives some times. Like when you are gaming or when you are maybe watching a funny YouTube video or whatever, it's nice to have that feeling.
Is it bad to be obsessive over a show

Dear Whoever it was who Stole my Artwork...Dear sir/madam,Dear Whoever it was who Stole my Artwork...4 months ago in Personal More Like This
You may recall, at around 3pm on Sunday the 3rd of November being in Toys 'R' Us in Knox city shopping center when you happened upon a bright orange and very large T2 bag. You may have even been the ones watching myself and my friend get unusually enthusiastic about small blind bag My Little Pony toys and search madly among them for very specific serial numbers and looking at us askance. I apologize for ignoring your sneering, I am, unfortunately, very used to it and now tend to ignore it.
Maybe you were not these people (who were very rude regardless) and simply happened upon the bag. Either way, not knowing what was in it as it contained a sealed black box and a pink folder, you took it- STOLE it, rather than hand it in.
You probably know by now, as you have had more than enough chance to open all the item
