passion into your profession. But there is a way of measuring your chances on being
able to get work and eventually sustain a living from it.
Accepting commissions or freelance for low payment won't help you. You can think any penny counts, but it will lower the worth of your work and damage the market.
How to measure that you are ready?
You probably have high goals, but they are usually not your first step. You must search out the clients who can be that first step. Often found in the card game industry, book cover illustrations and smaller game company's.
Look at the artwork shown by a company such as the card game company: Fantasy Flight games. Compare your skills with the average of their artworks. If it matches yours, you will have a chance. However, keep in mind that those artworks had been done in a limited timeframe, usually within 12 hour

Far OffI'm so far off from so many things in my life. I'm so far off from being where I want to be. I'm so far off from being who I want to be. I'm so far off from having my shit together, emotionally, physically, financially, and artistically. I'm so far off from finding the love of my life. I'm so far off from feeling mature enough to take care of children. I'm so far off from feeling mature enough to take care of myself. I'm so far off from liking who I am. I'm so far off from liking who's around me. And what scares me most about all of these things, is not how far away they are, but how close they really might be.Far Off2 years ago in Personal More Like This
How to Report PeopleI've been notified about some art thief posting pictures from Google on to their gallery. There were comments complaining about this on their profile. Either nobody knows how to report them or the DA committee won't take action.How to Report People4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just in case if you encounter something such as this, here's how you can report them:
1. Go to "Help and FAQ" from the DA drop-down menu that's beside the logo
2. Click "Contact the Help Desk". It's on the left side in bold.
3. So know it would tell you to send a note to them. For the category, click "Abuse Report" under "Copyright and Etiquette". What they mean by abuse report means is reporting on abusive and unacceptable behavior that goes AGAINST their policies. For example, stolen art.
4. Now write the report.*
*Don't forget to put a subject on it. They may not take it as seriously.

advice on some stuff to look up before tutorialsso im gonna be starting to make some tutorials soonadvice on some stuff to look up before tutorials2 years ago in Personal More Like This
before that you should look up some informations
you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop
reason for that is simple.
my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.
by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.
qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.
to any 3d artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing
for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear more intensively the closer planes of an object are together.
i can get into this and make it a long discussion , but easier w

What is a Daily Deviation?
The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
The staff/volunteer members responsible for selecting submissions for the daily feature often are open to suggestions and individual community members may direct their attention by noting the appropriate Community Volunteer or staff member with a direct link to the deviation which you are suggesting and a brief description about why you think the work in question should be featured.

SMASH! wouldn’t be the same without our Themed Art Competition, now would it? So step right up, get your thinking caps on and get that creative spark on fire! This year we want to see your imaginations run wild and take our lovable mascots to places they’ve never been. This year’s theme is…
Did Cyrus and Skadi grow up reading fairy tales like we did? Well, they’ve discovered a few Grimm tales and want to export some of them to their home planet. Help them illustrate these tales for their people and work them into one! Do what you will with the fairytale – reverse it, twist it, flip it on its head. As long as our sibling mascots are involved (and that we can tell it’s a fairytale), let the magic come alive!

so i keep getting the same questions over and over again. how did i learn to do this.
i was self taught. by this i mean, i took the initiative and seeked out the knowledge, as no one was offering it.
i draw on average 8 to 10 hours a day, every day. by average i mean that some days its 6 and some 12
so... the argument.
i keep hearing this one. well i want to be a professional artist, but life is hard, i need to work, i don't really have the time....
let me put things in perspective here.
i used to work as a night guard on the beach. every single night from 8 pm to s6 am. after that i would go meet up with my dad who gouarded another beach to get a cup of coffee. we had a bite to eat, and then both went to haul and sell fruits and vegetables.
every evening i was drawing. when the sun set i sat under a street lamp and drew through the night.
every night. this was on occasion interrupted by a fight with some exceedingly drunk people who wouldn't

please contact me through note if you're interested, if you give me a reference it usually only takes 1-5 days and definitely no more than 2 weeks. if you tell me to look through your gallery it will definitely take longer, bc i'll sketch like a hundred things and it's just too much trouble unu, so yeah i'm still working on backgrounds (there's a speedpaint in my scraps) but if you are set on getting a background it's extra bc work//
My deviantART Story It was during the summer before 7th grade started where I first discovered this site. At the time I was completely and utterly OBSESSED with The Legend of Spyro series... so the first thing I did was search "spyro" in the search bar to look at all the fan art. I then stumbled upon Fourth-Star's old Spyro comic that I thought was the best thing I had EVER SEEN EVER. After reading through the comic, I then decided to look through her gallery since I noticed how popular she was. She became my #1 artistic idol, and I wanted to be just like her so I could become as good as her. I then tried developing my own Spyro fan comics (which I later gave up on lol) and making my own serious dragon OCs. For a while, my dragons WERE based in the Spyro universe, but then after a while I realized, along with many other deviants, how unoriginal that was and removed my characters from Spyro entirely. But through Fourth-Star, I discovered many other deviants and loved their art too! SeeingMy deviantART Story3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Best Served ChilledEver since the elections, I've been feeling really mellow towards politics and religion.Best Served Chilled2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've identified as a centrist. Agreeing with some parts of both democrats and republicans. And even the most stubborn conservative or the wussiest liberal will upset me very little. I feel I've reached a stage of common sense.
As for religion, I'm still an atheist. But I can now easily coexist with people of other faiths. I suggest they do the same. I no longer see religion as a senseless excuse for people to kill each other, but now a more optimistic view of them is just a fun way to make the world seem exciting. Like watching Supernatural, or reading The Odyssey.
Coexist. Live and let live. Don't waste your time on differences and instead find common ground. We all exist in the same universe whatever the means, so we might as well make the best of everything and everyone we're given.
