Financial Resources Available to ArtistsFrom time to time around dA you may see your fellow deviants faced with unplanned or unforeseen financial crises write journals asking for donations. One of the great things about dA is that the majority of the collective community here is comprised of like-minded individuals and we are all greatly aware of the financial burdens that we as creatives may face from time to time.Financial Resources Available to Artists1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
When the need is urgent or if your profession is being threatened because of a catastrophe, you may need more funding than what can be raised through dA. In such a circumstance, it would be in your best interest to seek out emergency funding through a grant. Please note that some of these grants cannot be funded to hobbyists, students, or self taught artists.

PE: The Impact of Color1. - WHAT IS COLOR?PE: The Impact of Color2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain. It is a function of light and biology, not an exact science, no two people can see it exactly the same.
The human eye and brain together translate light into color. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of color. Newton observed that color is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colors and absorbs all the others. We perceive only the reflected colors. Thus, red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest. An object appears white when it reflects all wavelengths and black when it absorbs them all.
"Colors are the deeds of light, its deeds and sufferings."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

How to get noticed on deviantARTHi there!How to get noticed on deviantART3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
People asked me several times when I've became 'popular' on this site and in which way. I must admit I smelled a bit of envy in their tones, but the thing that troubled me more was that they didn't think that my work was worth all the pageviews I got over the years.
Well, I wanted to explain this little thing right now... dA costed me a lot of work! It wasn't a 'BOOM! POPULAR!' thing at all for me.
I had to study other people's methods too and to work hard on improving my art, and it wasn't easy. At all!
So tonight I'm sharing with you some methods to get attention by dA community.
Don't take them as unquestionable laws, just take them for what they are... Hints.
They worked for me but they may not work for you.
And now that you have a dA account...

I have been a traveler for many years , been to art conventions , galleries and even have a chance to view private collections . There are always people who doesn't understand arts giving our crude and stupid remarks and for some reason they seem to enjoy it but deep down inside I think I can see through why . So for the case of Deviant art , i have seen countless critiques that is totally BS and funny thing is , there are people who agrees with them , this is madness isn't it ?
Lets just say that ANYONE can register for deviant art and they can say ANYTHING about your arts . But if he or she doesn't have a palette or even knowledge about arts and starts thrashing you , you know what to do , don't feed the troll .

Firstly, thanks for all the birthday well-wishing. Veritable.. mountains of well-wishing. Though I'd be just as content postponing my birthday until next year. And then maybe the year after that, and after that..
A year older and a year wiser. Well, the latter is debatable. But definitely a year older! This year has been a wild, satisfying, disappointing, exciting one. It marks my first total year as a freelancer, which has been simultaneously one of the most liberating and terrifying career leaps I've ever made. Thankfully, the studio I've ended up working with for the entire year has been a very welcoming one. The workload can be immense, but outside of being paid, there are few rewards greater than seeing your work animated in a game after toiling on it for hours. Getting to visit Barcelona was another fantastic perk.
I really can't complain at all about work, this year. I've worked with the guys from Wayforward, Vigil, did a bit of here-and-there for my old stu
