What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Adoptables, Basics for AdoptersSince I've been asked these questions a lot, I thought to write some journals about it. This is from an Adopter's point of view.Adoptables, Basics for Adopters4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What are adoptables?
Adoptables are "characters" that you can purchase for your personal use. They can be animals, humans, objects... Anything and everything can be turned into an adoptable.
What exactly *is* it that I'm adopting?
You're adopting the *character* itself, not the design, not the art, just the character.
Take this adoptable:
Art = The drawing itself = Right remains to the artist
Original Species = The lines = Right remains to the artist, unless the species is for adoption too (Not valid in case of existing species such as wolves, cats, etc....)
Design = Black coat/Golden wings/Pattern on Tail = Right remains to the artist
Character = (Original Species + Design) = This is yours
You are basically adopting the right to use the character as a whole, species + design/pattern. Us
How To Find Freelance Illustration Work. Part TwoIn Part One of this article I talked about the „passive" way to find freelance work: making it easy for potential clients to find you. Here, I'll talk about the „active" way – how you can seek out freelance work from your own initiative. Only a small number well-known illustrators don't need to promote themselves actively. I assume that you already have a solid portfolio and some experience – but no one knows it yet. You're in for a lot of research and marketing.How To Find Freelance Illustration Work.

How To Find Freelance Illustration Work. Part OneUnless you're already a well-known illustrator it can be tough to find work that allows you to earn a living, even with a solid portfolio and professional attitude – in this article I'm going to assume you already have those basics covered. Promoting ourselves is something we need to learn the same way we learn to draw: with a lot of trial and error attempts because no single way works for everyone. There is no clear path to become established. There are, however, a few basic approaches that everyone can rely on.How To Find Freelance Illustration Work. Part One3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There are two ways to get illustration jobs: Those that find and contact you (passive) and those that you find and contact (active).

Redesign a character contest!If there's something we love about fan art is how artists take artistic liberties and portray characters in their own style and different scenarios we wouldn't see otherwise. Some people will say that fan art is unoriginal, but from experience there's a lot of creativity involved when it comes to depicting your favourite characters in a different light, deviating from the way they were designed by their creators.Redesign a character contest!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is why, inspired by the Pokedesign Challenge by *CrazyRatty on Tumblr, your friendly neighborhood Fan Art CVs decided to host a fun little contest for you!
How it works:
Pick a character from any fandom you like.
Come up with at least 3 different re-designs for them and put them in a single image.

Contest: Fan Art NouveauHello, everyone! It's time for another Fan Art contest. This time, we're asking participants to create Fan Art in Art Nouveau style.Contest: Fan Art Nouveau2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is Art Nouveau?
"Art Nouveau (French pronunciation: [aʁ nuvo], Anglicised to /ˈɑːrt nuːˈvoʊ/) or Jugendstil is an international philosophy and style of art, architecture and applied art—especially the decorative arts—that was most popular during 1890–1910. English uses the French name Art nouveau ("new art"), but the style has many different names in other countries. A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it was inspired by natural forms and structures, not only in flowers and plants, but also in curved lines. Architects tried to harmonize with the natural environment.
Art Nouveau is considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewellery, furniture, textiles, household sil

PE: How to Use Masking Fluid Traditional Art WeekPE: How to Use Masking Fluid 1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I use lots of watercolors in my mixed media works and people once in a while ask me how do I paint backgrounds so that objects or characters do not get painted at the same time. I often just paint background around a character quickly with free hand, but if I want to be more precise and when there are lots of jagged edges or tiny details to go round, I use masking fluid to protect those.
Here is a little tutorial how I use masking fluid in my mixed media works! You can use same tips in your pure watercolor artworks – the fluid still works similarly.
What is masking fluid?
Masking fluid is a handy tool if you want to leave some areas unpainted when painting with watercolors. It allows you to paint freely over the masked areas so you can avoid painting around complicated characters – instead you can just paint over them.
Masking fluid made of rubber, latex, ammonia and in some case there is also pigment added on

PE - The Beef with BasesWelcome to the Beef with Bases article. This may get a little controversial, so put on your heavy duty hats!PE - The Beef with Bases4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
By now, we should all know what a base is. But just for a refresher - A base is a bald, naked figure for people to 'doll' clothes onto. Lately, more people have been making animal bases as well. Some argue that since they can't be dressed up, they aren't proper bases. But a base is a vague term to begin with.
Why do so many people make bases? What's the allure? Many people just start doodling and end up with a body they don't plan on finishing. So why let it go to waste? They fix it up a bit and let other people use it, so maybe others will find inspiration where theirs left off. Other times people are inspired by a pose, and want to practice their anatomy and draw the body. Sometimes people even have an idea in mind - say... a big set of mermaid poses! And more frequently, people see a piece of art t
Top Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring IllustratorsI wrote this thing. If you want to repost it on your blog or journal, please credit me with: Article by illustrator Kristina Gehrmann - www. mondhase.deTop Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring Illustrators3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Selling yourself as a beginner
I found a prime example of this in a forum for artists seeking work. The thread title was „Starting-out artist looking for a chance",, and the thread told that the artist is „looking for a client for whom I may draw" and has „just graduated from art college".
We all were at this point once, but usually it takes too long to realize that „beginner" is the wrong mindset, even if you are one. Such statements sound like excuses and are guaranteed to weaken your position. Don't make excuses. Do not justify your work, and do not justify your prices. This is a tricky habit to acquire since we're not very confident by nature, but remember the image you wan
