A Beginner's Guide :: Literary CommissionsIf you're a writer who's considering selling their skills, but not sure of how to set up prices or know what exactly you need to write in your information, look no further! Myself and imaginary-rose have complied a few tips to help beginning writers who want to start commissions but unsure of how to take the first step.A Beginner's Guide :: Literary Commissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Important Things
The biggest thing you need to consider before taking commissions is "How well can I write another's ideas?". This is a big thing because if you're not able to put your own into words that well, it may be challenging to put another's on paper. We suggest taking requests to see how well you work under a bit of pressure. If you can handle it well and get it done within a reasonable amount of time, you're a prime candidate to start selling your skills.
Know your strengths and weaknesses as a writer. In your information, you want to be 100% honest with your potential buyers. Don't sugarcoat your weakness or over emph
[WIP] Metal Sonic[WIP] Metal Sonic1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I finished the model, some of the rigging stuff and some basic materials.
I tried to stay sort of close to the official model (like always) but I made some slight changes here and there. (like always )
-The shoulder pads are bigger and have a more defined, sharper form
-The eyeball is very reflective, unlike the pitch black one in official renders
-The thighs and upper arms have a slightly different shape
-The armor on shins and lower arms are sharper with more distinct edges
-Small additional air vents on the back (not visible here)
Instead of a regular metal material I went for a car paint look for the blue and the red materials. I think it looks better, what do you think?
Your Numbers are Irrelevant.You're not going to see me post these frankly tired "tuff luv arteest" journals. But there's a recurring problem that is bugging the HELL out of me.Your Numbers are Irrelevant.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Pageviews. Followers. Number of high profile/talented artists you've earned the "respect" of. I'm not talking about gaining exposure for the purpose of making MONEY either now or in the future with your work. I'm talking about just wanting numbers for no reason.
Stop focusing on them.
So far I've noticed two different types of people. The one who works diligently on their trade, but focuses too much on their numbers. Profusely wondering why they can't meet the popularity levels of That Other Guy™ when they should be asking "what can I do to improve my abilities so I can succeed and be happy with myself"? This person loses themselves. They become depressed. They contemplate leaving galleries behind. They let it eat at them for months and it even cuts into their lives.

EncouragementWhen I started out on DeviantArt, I used to be one of those artists that thought I could never do art properly.Encouragement1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'll start saying that I spend most of my childhood getting only little encouragement.
My parents were, like many other parents, convinced that art wasn't that much of a useful skill since it's nearly impossible to earn money with -- and would've liked it if I spend my time doing something more useful instead. At school I was that pathetic kid without friends. Creative, yet very introverted. The one that gets bullied in the schoolyard. Needless to say; it was rare to find people saying something nice about me, and it was even more rare to find someone actually encouraging me.
Back then, I used to believe that I was alone. I initially signed up to DeviantArt to find people with similar interests. But it happened to change my mind along the way. When I came into contact with other artists, I came to realize that there were in fact many people just like me. People th
Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.So... I've been downloading Devil May Cry OSTs And while listening to "I'll be your home" I realized something- About my Rants and Raves towards the new DmC:Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's Nothing we can do. Nothing
But thats okay- Because they can't simply come in and take away the Dante, the emotions, the love, the hate, the frustration of being stuck on Vergils last battle and finally screaming "TAKE THAT YOU WHORE!!!!" at the screen at the end of the game!!!! No. They can't.. they can't take what they've already given us.
This new game is much like a cold: All we have to do is lay back, relax and it'll go away.
I can't wait for it to come out- perhaps if not many people enjoy it they may realize how many are outraged.
I complain not. Its a good thing I'm not a Devil...
Because I'm bawling. Crying. Sobbing. All and any derivitives for the tears inside me. To be a nerd and quote the song I'm sobbing to: "The tears inside me calm me down"
Thinking about that reminds me of DMC3's last few cutscenes...

So I decided I wanted to do some very simple character designs/breedings.
I will be designing simple characters as well as breeding simple characters for free.
I will also be doing revamps of simple characters.
Examples of oc's I find 'simple' (these are not designed by me. These are just samples)
This is not first come first serve!
I will pick based on my interest.
Watchers of mine get preference u3u
ALL babies made from the bred couples get to be kept by you.
I am just doing these for fun.
If you want a chance at it
- post an image of a character you want revamped
- if you want a custom simple design, post a palette and some samples of simple designs you like
- post a couple you want bred
examples of my own designs/breedings:

Slenderman AttackTwo girls in Wisconsin have been arrested for stabbing a classmate, apparently with the intention of becoming minions of the Slenderman. They were caught walking near a local highway, en route to Wisconsin’s Nicolet National Forest, where they believe the fictitious character lives.Slenderman Attack1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The victim, who was stabbed 19 times, is making a recovery.
All the girls involved are around 12 years old.
That’s all terrible, but what actually irks me more is that a spokesman for the Slenderman creator, and administrator for the website where most fiction revolving around the character is posted, has said "We are not teaching children to believe in a fictional monster, nor are we teaching them to be violent."
I think it’s pretty bad that a person who comes up with a concept has to be afraid of the reaction to how other people use it. Especially children. They’re random, dangerous little buggers.
Think back to your own childhood. What was the stupidest thing you did, and why?

Last year you spent a lot of money on a rebrand, this year you've cut 50% of your work force, entire departments have been decimated and peoples lives have been thrown upside down without notice. But you never really communicated to anyone why. You still don't, you're not telling the community what's happening and that's only going to hurt you. People will see that helpdesk tickets take longer to get a response, people see that lots of people are no longer staff and you're not letting them know why. You know that people have a belief that the site is dying, you're only furthering it right now. How much of a better state would the site be in if the rebrand hadn't happened? Would I and the rest of the people that lost our jobs without notic

For f**k’s sake. Terrorists are not under your bed. They are not hiding around every corner. They are not in the seat next to you. The few that are out there only win if you start to think they might be.
In 2005, a gaggle of weak-minded twits blew themselves up on the London Underground. I and 1.2 BILLION other passengers per year still use it. Could another attack happen? Of course. But so could fire, flood, collapse or accident. You could get hit by a bus as you exit the station! There are a thousand-and-one terrible things that could happen to you today and, I assure you, unless you live in some third world sh*thole, the odds of a random yahoo causing you physical harm for political or religious reason is one of the least likely to occur.

A Tribute to Hans Ruedi GigerA Tribute to Hans Ruedi Giger1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

He got some clothes on and called you.
"GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE, I NEED HELP." he yelled into the phone. And boy was his voice more feminine.
When you got to his house you knocked at the door and it was answered by a short girl who looked like Karkat who had an angry expression, "FUCKING FINALLY, TOOK YOU FOREVER TO GET HERE." she huffed.

He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).
