Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!As a member of the Artisan Craft community here at DeviantART, I looove to browse around the AC galleries and see what other deviants are up to, what things are trending, and look for up and coming artists to feature in the future. But sadly there's one trend I've been noticing that is very, very bad.Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Undercharging your work!
Let's start off with the most important thing. Now I know some cheap buyers love these low prices, but let's be honest cheap buyers-- you're not long term supporters. People who want your work for super cheap are people who will haggle or snag a deal and run. There is nothing wrong with having sales, getting rid of old charms for cheap, or even doing discounts for special occasions but you can't cater to the cheapskates! xD You want people who appreciate handmade items for what they are. And that's a unique, quality piece.
If someone wants to buy all your hard work for just $5, perhaps you could redirect them to Forever21 to get some mass produced jewelry i

Lilith- Ancient name...
Darkness caresses your eternal beauty,
the moonlight bathes you with its delicate light,
soft wind kisses your pale skin,
waking up your senses with the symphony of fallen angels,
while worshipping choirs are sung at your realm,
as the crave and lust enshroud you,
bringing you to life from your immortal dream.
Mother of the fallen,
Queen of the Sheol,
Lilith is ancient verb,
Dark Goddess of velvet voice,
unholy communion of primal delight,
desecrating the innocence,
forbidden word delivered in crimson kisses,
utter bliss captivating your soul under the night.
* Poem at Villenueve's gallery.
Highlights of the week -16th Edition!, as every week, Lilith's Realm proudly showcases the best of its galleries, selected by our great staff, congratulations to our selected artists and thank you to my wonderful staff for the excellent hardwork!

From stock,groups and annoying issues...Wheels For IndependenceFrom stock,groups and annoying issues...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days ago,I left most groups I had joined,this after the recent stock rules and the issues resulted from it, I clarify: I am someone who supports stock from DA and its providers, I have recently said: I have never purchased stock, nor I will do, for many reasons but above all because we must use what we have at home.
DA has been my home for 5 years,since I joined,I have always used DA stock,the same,I have always credited every stock used,even if my own resources,so I fully support stock because at this home we have great stock owners/providers, their images have inspired me many times to create.
I can understand when an artist purchases stock,many artists do it because they want 'original creations',because 'the model's image' has been used so many times by other artists and well,'I can afford' stock that w

I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

Stock and Resources UpdatesLETS TALK ABOUT STOCK "REQUESTS"Stock and Resources Updates2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Every year we get excited, eager, passionate new stock providers entering our small but growing community, and every year these new stock models in particular get targeted by a small group of "requesters" Those of us who have been on the site for more than a few years recognise the types of "requests" I'm talking about and know to absolutely avoid them at all costs, but its something that I've seen more and more regularly over the last few months, and its definitely a concern.
There are standard "pose requests" that are NOT requested for the "artist" to work from. They are simply asking you to take photos of yourself in provocative poses so they can get off to your stock.
Firstly - please keep in mind that the images you are providing to artists are STOCK ART - they are first and foremost designed to provide artists with useable, useful references, either for traditional art, or digital art or whatever media they choose to create

Best of... Weekly Photomanip Features v.2 #2The second edition of the revamped series! View the first issue hereBest of... Weekly Photomanip Features v.2 #22 years ago in Personal More Like This
These features are reboot of the original series of newsletters started by me and Lareth way back in 2007, with help from our friends Iardacil and SylwiaS, which ended in 2011 with its #189 edition Best of... weekly photomanip features #189
Being recently returned to a more regular visits status here on dA, I figured what better to showcase the new talent that has invaded the photomanipulations gallery than to reboot this series?! So here it is, back, once again, designed to shine a light on talented artists who deserve your attention.
I will always choose 15 manips from the week that passed. The criteria for selection is simple. They have to present creativity, polished technique and overall good quality. The kind you know when you see them, because they're just eye-catching.
Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!Manip Academy5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

On DeviantArt Wishing To "Own" .ARTHonestly, in my opinion, having DeviantArt (and Angelo (spyed) by proxy - or any individual, entity, company, etc) controlling ".ART" would be like having The Church of Scientology, The Church of Jesus Christ, The Vatican, Mitt Romney, Obama, Walt Disney, Adolf Hitler, or any other specific individual, entity, company, etc controlling ".GOD".

Special Super Stars IVHello My Dears!Special Super Stars IV2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Edition week the superstars Journal's today with my new watchers and some powerful friends.
Recalling once again the concept of this journal, this journal is done only for my friends here I show that behind a beautiful work of art has a wonderful person too.
The profiles of some people will stay here because they are my friends and I can not put everyone's work here, more all are superstars too is my opinion.
If someone is not here or is it because I forgot and apologize or it's because I do not like.
Arrogant and annoying people never have their jobs posted by me and I do not change my opinion.
I want to apologize to :iconsaza11: that last journal I forgot to put the her profile in journal and she was always very sweet and kind to me, so sorry dear are many peoples and I can not remember all.
The Special Super Star I chose to display his art in my profile is the great artist :iconunfeigned-dreams:

If you have feedback or want to follow this journal here is the link:
I think this is very good for our community and I am glad that someone is willing to take the time to update that monster list.
I got this idea from my friends: :iconFictionChick: and :iconSweediesArt: as they were good enough to share outside DA resources for all of us to bookmark for future reference.
These are all inside DA resources, you might know about them already BUT if you don't then well now you will!
