10 Tips for Taking Better PhotosA good photo is key to selling your plushie online. Your customer can't hold it in their hands and look at it from all angles, so it’s up to you to provide clear, sharp photos that will capture their interest and convince them to buy from you.10 Tips for Taking Better Photos3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Use a tripod. A steady camera means a sharper image, and lets you concentrate on framing the shot. You can get a small, simple, perfectly satisfactory tripod for about $10, or in a pinch you can prop your camera on a flat surface If for some reason you are obliged to hold the camera, grasp it with both hands, draw your elbows in until they touch, press your arms as tightly as possible to your chest, and hold your breath while snapping the photo.
2. Unlike most subjects, plushies aren't going to fidget, so you have plenty of time to compose your shot (if your plushie does start fidgeting, run away as fast as you can and call an exorcist). Make sure the plushie is centered and fills up most of the frame. Most c

How are my lovely watchers today?
They used to tell me it's alright to be different. But people have proved me wrong.
'Being different' means being an outcast, being picked on, laughed at.. being hurt.
But with Art it's different. With art it's okay to different, because it's actually 'good' to have a different style. It's actually good to draw different things, instead of going after the herd and draw what everyone draws.
I can draw my own things, like my own things and can easier ignore the hate.
I can put my emotions, happy or not, in it without fearing the reactions of others. Sure it would be nice if they like it, but if they don't, then what the heck? I don't care! it's my art anyway, I draw for my pleasure, not yours.
It's strange isn't it? How it's so different to accept reactions on your art, but fear the reactions on yourself. It's pretty much messed up

HOW TO GET PUBLISHEDThis is an old piece I wrote and posted a while ago, but just recently people have been asking what my experiences were with regard to publishing and getting published - so here it is again, with a few new notes added about dA and Madefire!HOW TO GET PUBLISHED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a very honest view based on 27 years experience as a writer, artist and publisher. The point here is to try to HELP you go into the business enlightened and with open-eyes, knowing what to expect. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO PUT YOU OFF! However, you should know that getting into comics is NOT easy - as too many people frequently imagine - and neither is it a glamorous 'rock-star' existence. It is hard work, as are all trades, and it should be treated as such. I see too many people despondent and badly hurt by their experience, and this can be avoided if you know what you are getting into right from the outset.
Getting into comics is something a lot of people want to know how to do, but there's a lot of questions you w
Slow PhotoI've read in facebook the Manifesto of Slow Photography Project https://www.facebook.com/slowphotoproject written by Diego Mormorio. I found it very interesting and so much in accordance with the way I am feeling toward photography these days.Slow Photo1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I'd love to hear your opinion on it...here is the english translation of the italian text:
Slow Photo is a way of living photography. Of considering it passion and fun, not separated from awareness and responsibility. As much as Slow Food doesn't mean eating slowly but eating well - with no rush, good, clean food, natural in the way it is produced, and with the goal of a less intensive machine farming - Slow Photo doesn't mean photographing slowly but photographing consciously.
It means living photography as aesthetic experience and at the same time as a mental process and cultural commitment against consumerism. It is both a personal path and a civil statement.
Slow Photo is enjoying photography without b

Best video resources for digital artistsLearning the theory without any practice is incredibly pointless when it comes to art. No book, no lecture and no video will ever teach you how to paint if you won't find the time for creating something yourself.Best video resources for digital artists2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
On the other hand, doing everything alone and without any instructions is the longest and hardest way of achieving anything. What's worse it doesn't guarantee you success.
Through the last couple of years I've been painting, I've learned that the best way for me to learn to paint is to copy techniques of people who know what they're doing. There's no better way doing it than watching videos with commentaries. That's why today I thought I'd share with you some great lectures, tutorials and demos I've found on youtube. Below you'll find a list of the best YT channels and samples of videos. Go and subscribe for more great vids!

How to Become Popular on DeviantartSince I joined on deviantart I have been fascinated by many works.. Really nice works which have a lot of favourites and others which havent. I questioned myself why it could happen? Why works so wonderful and people so talented can be unknown in this community?How to Become Popular on Deviantart6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So, I decided to write this article.
For it, I sent this three questions for some pop artists:
- What's the secret to become popular?
- Why do some people become popular so fast, doing ordinary art, and others which do amazing art cant be popular?
- Is there any trick to become popular? Like watching a lot of people, faving everything you can, posting a lot of journals or promoting contests?
Some of them answered me so kindly and fast, others answered me in a way kinda rude and others didnt answer..
By now, I have some ideas, some quotes and I want to show you all information I got about it.
So, lets start:
First, I must say there are several ways to become popular. To make this article, I did a

A small talk about pricing your artYou're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!A small talk about pricing your art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.
Let's be honest - if you're reading this then you probably want
