DEALING WITH REJECTIONThere's not an artist alive who hasn't experienced rejection. Everyone has had to run the gauntlet of editors, agents, publishers and art directors. Most advice on this subject centers on ways to cope with the emotional toll of receiving rejections to your submissions.DEALING WITH REJECTION2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And while dealing with the hurt feelings of being told "no thanks," what's even more important, in the real world of publishing, is to keep going forward despite that ups and downs that you'll feel. I want to give you a few words of advice and encouragement along those lines. Sure, I'd like to tell you something that will take the sting out of receiving a rejection. But the truth is, if you want to succeed, you need to focus on going forward DESPITE the negative feelings. Put plainly, if you want to succeed, don't wait to feel better before you move forward again. Keep going forward anyway. I want you to succeed. That's my primary goal. If that's yours, too, then keep reading...!

This time, they'll be a greater range of characters to choose from, and you'll get more good points for doing 'less loved' charas that I don't have as much art from (though only a few, it's more on the quality and composition of the artwork.)
Here are the characters you can choose from (order: most art received to less art received):
- A fullbody with bg drawing from me (like http://fav.me/d61qbhx)
- A 400x400 pixelart from DodoIcons (like http://fav.me/d68514e)
- Feature in my winners journal

How Much Can You Earn As An Artist?Aspiring artists are often curious how much money they can earn as a cartoonist. Many simply send their cartoons to various magazines at random, in the hopes of being published. But reaching a goal without a good plan is like flying from New York to Los Angeles without a map. The effort is unlikely to bring in I"doctor" or "lawyer" type incomeHow Much Can You Earn As An Artist?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
But you can earn that - and more than that - if you have a plan. But the plan must include an deep understanding of the marketplace for popular visual art. This includes first identifying the strengths of your own style, then analyzing the market to match the two for maximum potential.
For example, you might have the world's best idea for a newspaper comic strip. But newspapers are a dying business, with no growth potential.
An idea without a market is unmarketable.
Let's take the opposite example. Think of the "brand," called Tokidoki, by Italian artist Simone Legno. This cute, manga-esque cast of dark characters could have been created as a pos

Amaterasu stared intensely at the Celestial Plain. The Ark of Yamato was still a few hundred feet away from the edge of the Plain, but she could easily see the monsters that still roamed across it. She occasionally thought she saw something small and white dashing across the Plain, but she didn't think much of it.
"Hmm, doesn't seem as bad as I thought it would be," Waka muttered. He had expected it to be mostly wasteland and for there to be a lot more monsters. Only about 25% of the Celestial Plain could be considered wasteland (though the rest of it looked a lot duller than it had once been) and there were, at the most, half as many demons as he expected.
When the Ark gently landed on the edge of the Celestial Plain, all the nearby demons ran off. They had no idea what the giant thing was, but they didn't want to be near it.
When the Ark landed and Ammy and Waka came out, the remaining demons were clearly scared, but they did not try t
