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
Weekly Feature: Week TwoHere is the second installment of the weekly feature I promised! Hopefully these will get bigger and better as time goes on, but for now they're a bit eh! What I'm doing for the feature is picking two photographs from eight of our ten folders as well as my absolute favorite. Hopefully you will all enjoy this first feature. If this becomes more popular, I'll add more photographs to the feature.Weekly Feature: Week Two2 years ago in Personal More Like This

A Must Read!Guys, i just want to share these journals with you (created by: Suzanne-Helmigh) whether you're a beginner, a student, or a professional artist, these are good articles, and covered a lot of good points, not only for becoming a good artist but things to be aware about as an artist. If you have a moment, have a look! I've shared one about the myth of concept art on my art blog, but i didn't want to leave out the rest of it. So instead i've decided to share these on here, since i have more watchers here than on my art blog. I hope it will help you in some way.

Ready for NaNoWriMo yet?So it's National Novel Writing Month!Ready for NaNoWriMo yet?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know you're all pretty tired of seeing NaNo blogs pop up everywhere and that's why this blog is only a recollection of resources that can help all of you with your novel, instead of our own thing about it; dA is so full of useful stuff that it feels like community spirit to link to those instead of making our own that would just be a copy of those.
We'll not only be listing them, anyway, we'll briefly explain what each article is about so you don't need to go through the ones that don't interest you.
First off, already linked above, http://www.nanowrimo.org/ . If you haven't yet, you need to get an account there and start going. There are a lot of deviants that are there, and if you're registered there let us know! We'll be keeping a list here for you to find friends. (: for NaNo writers, this website is Home.

A Bond Of Two FriendsA Bond Of Two Friends4 months ago in Personal More Like This
One day at Voodoo and Stitches residence, Voodoo has hired a babysitter
to watch over his lovely daughter Stitches while he run some errands.
"Now Stitches I'm going to be gone for couple of minutes, so be sure to be a
good girl okay." Voodoo said to his daughter.
"Okay daddy I'll be good" Stitches replied.
There was a knock on the door, outside was a girl, about 12 years of age, with red hair with black streaks around the edges, black rings around her bright blue eyes and a stare that would intimidate even the toughest of lunatics. Voodoo answers the door to see the young lady at his door step.
"Can I help you miss" Voodoo asked in curiosity.
"I'm the babysitter sir...Maggie" Maggie told him

I really want to do something for you guys to thank you for all you have done for me, but I can never think of anything good enough ... if you guys want to make suggestions, I'm all ears!25,000 and Birthdays2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've decided to take a break from taking requests, as there is quite a few to get through, but I'll accept more when I've finished all the ones I have yet to do on the list. Also, it has been brought to my attention that there have been a number of birthdays this month ... so here's a list of all the Hetalia birthdays so you and I don't forget ... (also, shows you who you might share your birthday with ^_^)

Rant of the Day: Artistic CheatersHi guys. What's up? I have that anger building in the pit of my stomach again, so let's bitch about shit. This rant was actually suggested by someone, but I swear to you I cannot remember their username. Geez. I told you I get requests for rants so much that I actually lose track of them, so if you suggested one and I don't do it, it is NOT because I didn't want to. It's because I simply forgot. Anyway, as per usual, this is my opinion and you don't have to agree, but I think the majority of you will.Rant of the Day: Artistic Cheaters8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, how many times have you seen the following comments on dA:
"Omg, I totally drew this! It's my own original design!"
"Nah, I didn't trace this. I'm just so talented that it looks exactly like the ref! Go figure!"
"No, I didn't use a ref! I mean, it doesn't even look like that photo on Google!"
Yeah. Sure. You didn't trace that, but it looks just fucking like the original pic... even the lines are the same. BUT GOD FORBID ANYONE SAY YOU TRACED IT!
For Pete's sake, bitch, just
how to make your dreams come truei remember being a child. this long-haired, twiggy thing with delicious dreams of becoming a movie starlet or a princess. of course, you're not entirely logical when you are that young. your head is in the clouds and the future is a million miles away. i think when the clouds begin to clear and you start to see the future there in the sky, you begin to grow up. life begins to sink in. you realise you are not beautiful or elegant enough to become a princess, and your eyes don't sparkle enough to be a movie star. try again.how to make your dreams come true4 years ago in Personal More Like This
even though my clouds cleared away sooner than anyone else i knew my age, i was still breathing them. only suddenly i knew who i was, or moreso, who i wanted to be. i was fourteen and i wrote in my diary "i am nirrimi and because of that, i'm going to live. really live." and for me that meant throwing myself headfirst into photography and life. i didn't attend school much, i spent days planning, learning to retouch and taking pictures. my studies suffered and my passi

Homestuck Trollself GameHey Homestucks.Homestuck Trollself Game2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ever wanted a quick and easy way to find out your troll self? Well, I have one (although it's based on something I found on Tumblr)
Your name: type your name in to this name generator (http://rumandmonkey.com/widgets/toys/namegen/15048/#.UJ2ujLvejIw)
Your blood color: the blood color of the troll who has your rising sign (found with this calculator:http://www.alwaysastrology.com/rising-sign-calculator.html)
Your lusus: Go to this Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_animal_names)and find the section that begins with the first letter of your last name (under terms by species or taxon). Add your birth-date and birth-month and count down that number from the beginning of the section. If that number is too big for the number of animals listed, go back to the beginning once you reach the end. If you get an aquatic animal and you aren't a purpleblood, go to the next animal. If you're a Tyrianblood (Pisces rising), skip this part and put Gl'bgolyb down as your

Once I found, will be buried in my sword.
Sinners, the best run a little faster.

You'd better protect your head with the neck, because she wanted tocondemn you, cut off your head.
She is a crazy angel, is also chaotic judges.
