1. Be happy about yourself.
You can work forever just to make that one painting look perfect. This might restrict you from doing more work and might prevent you from doing more work for your clients. Make it look good and if there is time left, make it perfect. Okay that one is kind off common but now the fun starts.
2. Don't try and hit on a girl or guy via chat or something while you have tight deadlines.
Just don't, it takes up enormous amounts of time and concentration. So for all you single sexy artists, just wait until your deadline is finished.
3. Stay in shape, physical and psychological.
First off its always good for you to be in top condition so you can preform way better. But this also helps in a lot of other aspects, for one it helps you sleep better. Feeling good about yourself improves your self confidence and that will also show in your work. Another good reason is self reference photo's, if your better in shape odds are that you're bo

Winter Solstice by *darknatasha Winter Solstice by ~Jaagaa
The Mother [aspect of the Goddess] assumes her role at Beltane, when she weds the Horned God with whom she has dallied as the Maiden since Oestara. As all-mother, she then reigns with her consort the God-King over the year’s planting, growing, and harvesting. Her impregnation by him at Oestara is brought to fruition at Yule when she delivers the young Horned God who will replace his sacrificed father. After giving birth to the Horned God, the Mother enters a time of retreat an

Fractal Art is expressive & creative.
Above all Fractal Art is an experimental art form.
The artist is never fully certain what effect variables will have on the image.
This fact connects, rather than separates, the digital fractal artist with the traditional paint artists.

I have found quite a few of my photomanips there as her "own". I recognized several art pieces from DA - and I have notified whomever I could. But you'd better go there and check out whether your artwork was stolen or not.
EDIT: What s/he does is, takes our pics, either cuts out the main motif and puts it in an other environment, or 'recreates' the picture with small changes (and in a ridiculously bad way too...)

Hello again! It's been 3 months since our previous seasonal feature and it's time for a next one, the third one. As previously, I'm picking deviations which have below 300 favourites, but it's still really hard - I'd feature all of them if it didn't take so much space. If you liked some of the works here especially, don't hesitate to suggest it for a Daily Deviation, here you may find all the tips how to do it.

Dreamy Theodor KittelsenAs I've previously promised, after the articles about Sulamith Wülfing and about John Bauer, the time comes for an article about Theodor Kittelsen.Dreamy Theodor Kittelsen1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
...Theodor Severin Kittelsen, being a great representant of the Golden Age of Illustration, is one of the countless artists who received more attention and appreciation a long time after their death. I don't say "proper attention", it's still far from it.
His depictions of Scandinavian folklore creatures are said to be equally cannon to the trolls portrayed by the definitely more famous John Bauer. But, unlike Bauer, Kittelsen didn't focus just around trolls (which are, you must admit that, most of Bauer's creations - although his sudden death at young age is
Golden Age of IllustrationGolden Age of Illustration1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
When in the second half of the 19th century newspapers and illustrated books became popular and widespread thanks to improvements in printing technology, many artists found their base to spread their skills. The official time span of the Golden Age of Illustration is said to be from 1880s to 1920s, but it varied a little bit between Europe and America.
While European illustrators were influenced mostly by the Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau and Post-Impressionists (especially by Les Nabis, a group of Parisian artists), their American colleagues focused around Howard Pyle's Brandywine School of American Illustration in the Brandywine Valley.
Amongst the most popular artists of this time we find Arthur Rackham (UK), Howard Pyle (US), Ivan Bilibin (Russia), Theodor Kittelsen (Norway), Edmund Dulac (France), John Bauer (Sweden), Beatrix Potter (UK), N.C. Wyeth (US), Sulamith Wülfing (
Art History: John William Waterhouse:iconarthistoryproject: :iconcommunityrelations:Art History: John William Waterhouse1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
A man of some mystery John William Waterhouse, most affectionately known throughout his lifetime as 'Nino" was born in Rome to his English parents William and Isabella during the wonder years of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood who set the art world alight.
It was his Italian beginnings that first influenced his artistic style as a young man first at school in Leeds, then later at his fathers studio in London where he entered the coveted Royal Academy of Arts at the age of 21, not as a painter; but as a sculptor. Six months later his probationary term ended and he was fully enrolled as a student leading to his first painting exhibits.

Arthur RackhamArthur Rackham was born on the 19th of September 1867 in London and died of cancer at the age of 71 in Limpsfield, Surrey. He's considered to be one of the most recognisable artists of the Golden Age of Illustration in Europe, along with John Bauer and Theodor Kittelsen.Arthur Rackham8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
He was born in a big family - it's enough to mention that he had 11 siblings, but surely plenty of you knows that it wasn't quite unusual in the XIX century and earlier. We know that in his youth, Rackham's health was rather poor - hence he travelled to Australia with his two aunts to improve his condition.
After he returned, he began studying at the Lambeth School of Art. In 1892 he started working as a r
CONTEST IS OPEN"IN THE EMBRACE OF WINTER"CONTEST IS OPEN11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Each season brings a different experiences and emotions, different atmosphere, a different colour pallette.
Winter is a time for reflection and rest, a cycle of life-death-rebirth,
the inward journey, embracing darkness and silence.
Winter days are short, with long nights. The cold weather can make us sad and lethargic.
The season offers a sense of calmness and makes us feel peaceful.
The most romantic time of the year?
A snowy, frosty, cold world or rain and endless grey skies can be beautiful
but some people find that they become seasonally depressed as they receive less light in winter.
People feel tired and sluggish during winter. Too cold, gloomy, depressing?
Do you feel the winter blues or you enjoy the season?
Go back to your memories and keep your focus on your experience and emotions.
Show us your feelings about winter.
Show us your winter mood...now, in your past or childhood.

How many times have you wondered why is that the faces you draw look as empty as dead? Depicting moods can be a very hard task. Try sketching yourself (yes, a mirror would be a nice thing to have in this case), pull faces at diffrent angles, change light. And take a look at these below.
