But I made pillows
I hope they look ok. I think they do.
No, I'm not pressuring or begging for anyone to buy anything ( but who doesn't need a naked Sephiroth pillow? .. ). I just think pillows are kinda neat for some reason.
..which is surprising, since my mother was always the type to decorate beds with like, 18 pillows~ you'd think I'd have an aversion to them ( know anyone who does that? They have a bed or couch with like, 20 "decorative pillows? An then when you want to get in bed, you have to remove 18 of them to get to the sleeping pillow? )
Time for some blind, fuming RAGEI've been storing this one up for a while. I realize here, I'm probably preaching to the choir but if I don't say this, I'm going to explode. I've been bottling this for way too long. If anything, you people, the appreciators of art, can print this up and hand it to someone when you hear them say shit like this.Time for some blind, fuming RAGE6 months ago in Personal More Like This
(Note: "Asshole" is not just one person but a number of people who have said these things to me and other artists I know.)
Asshole: Art is NOT a job. It's just not. It doesn't involve manual labor, you get to sit on your ass all day, and most of you are even your own bosses! You don't have to deal with HALF the shit WE (who have REAL jobs) do. I bet you work like three hours a week, maybe. Don't even get me started on the idiots who sell those blank canvases and glued together furniture BS for like A JIZZLLION DOLLARS. You want to know what a real job is? Stand on your feet for twelve hours straight listening to people complain day in and day out. THAT is a job. Or how about sa

Permitted usage of the photos (Updated)UPDATE: Please scroll down for a list of frequently asked questions.Permitted usage of the photos (Updated)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since I get a lot of requests from people asking whether they could use my photos for reference, I thought I'd lose a few words about what's permitted and what's not.
If you want to use the photos for reference - feel free. After all, the moment you look at it, it turns into a reference in your brain anyways I would appreciate if you could link back to either www.lupinity.com (preferred) or my dA page though. And I'd love to see the outcome of it all, if you are willing to show
Please note, however, that referencing does not equal copying. Simply painting over a photo (tracing) or reproducing it in any other way (sometimes referred to as "heavy referencing" or re-painting by some artists) is not what I would call referencing. Doing that for practice and strictly non-profit personal stuff is okay, but I certainly wouldn't like to see prints of something like this sold.

A lot of artists left devART eh?Since I've did major cleaning in my deviantART account which was dusted pretty badly, because I don't use this site as often as in the past anymore and I interact with artists from real life and other sites more often. But I thought to "return" to dA and be there more often a bit but however...A lot of artists left devART eh?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
...in general I've noticed (well since longer time) a lot and a lot of artists has stopped activity online here.
Not only artists but a lot of very kind people also, since I noticed interacting on dA became more dull. I've noticed much less activity with comments especially- basically, in general there are much less comments received- and less... livey than in the past. I've noticed that also in many other known users on deviantART.
I remember a lot of fun with interacting with people from 2008 where I made a lot of close bonds with these people,... now devART became very dull, not counting loads of spam and scam comments. Also, fyi, it's not a rant, whining or anything just curious :]

'Just be yourself'As a kid I had problems grasping the meaning of "be yourself". Whenever I asked what it meant, the replies were hardly satisfying. Mostly, I was told NOT to be the way I thought of as ok but to be like the kid next door, because he was so well behaved. Or someone famous, someone rich, because they were successful and the more successful you are, the better.'Just be yourself'9 months ago in Personal More Like This
But even at a very young age I already noticed the contradiction here: how was I supposed to be myself if I was copying someone else? This seemed off.
In the end it wasn't a human who was able to explain the concept of "be yourself" to me.
It was a video game.
With a blue hedgehog.
The first thing I noticed about the game was how happy he looked. He was clearly doing the one thing he loved to do, the one thing he did best. And he made a dent with it.
I was impressed.
And then I was hooked.
And by the time we had traveled through three games, I was certain that I had understood the whole "be yourself" thing. And I adored him for it.
How to get more exposure for your art.I was recently asked for some advice on getting exposure as an artist. Here's my own advice with personal reasons as to why I suggest them. This is not a post for 'bragging', if you take it that way, then please stop reading *i mean this in the nicest way orz* This is stating facts from my experience. What worked for me and what doesn't work. It shows how my own art has gained exposure throughout the years and how yours can too. I am not a fantastic artist, I know what I'm good at and what I struggle with. I work hard for what I know I can push out and I do it proudly. I hope this post will help you earn more followers and give you a bit of inspiration as well.How to get more exposure for your art.8 months ago in Personal More Like This

In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The TruthNote: This journal entry is a response to another one, "In Defense Of Making A Living Through Art" by Droemar. My argument began as a long winded comment that mirrored the sentiments expressed there, but attempted to provide a different perspective on the matter as well. It has now been added here by request. I encourage everyone to give the original journal a read, as the subject matter it tackles is important, both mercilessly heartfelt and honest. At times it requires great bravery to stand up and admit the truth; I commend the artists that do it every day of their lives, but perhaps it's time the rest of the world learn something of courage too. I suppose this was my attempt to do so, and whether or not it changes anything in your life, is up to you.In Defense Of Art, The Artist, And The Truth1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This whole issue pisses me off.
Let me start by saying that I don't know if this post, my post, changes anything. It probably doesn't, but it's a perspective that I think desperately needs to be hear

New contest!!! It will be demonical!English:New contest!!! It will be demonical!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is my frist own contest and it is about a wolf from my story Call of the shadows".
The story is only in German, but I want, that people, who do not know my story, accede by my contest. So everybody can make an entry!
You have to draw my bad main character Taroxon.
He is a big black wolf with red eyes. But in my opinion this is too boring for a real bad character.
So I have decided that Taroxon will be demonical!
I want that you draw a black wolf with red eyes and with demonical attributes!
Maybe: with horns.
It should looks like the demon lives in the wolf. Taroxon have no control about his body, but he have no pains. The demon controls his body. You can give him every attributes what you want!
I hope you have understand this! Please ask me, when you have a question!
When you are on Animexx.de, so upload your drawing on this side, too. Here is the link from my contest on Animexx.de: http://animexx.onlinewelten.com/wettbewerbe/wettbewerb.php?id=42191

If you have already finished your entry, post it now! You have time up to midnight tonight, because tomorrow the jury (me, my sister and my father) will consult to choose the best ones and probably the results of the contest will be published.
Are you good at portraying people? Are you a fan of vampires? Do you like wolves or werewolves? Do you have a penchant for dragons and you like to draw? If you answered yes to at least one of these questions, you're in the contest for you!
Welcome to my first REAL contest on deviantart. (There was another, smaller, but that does not count ...).
This is a kind of statistical contest ... to the character that will be many times designed and therefore appreciated among my OC, surely will be granted to survive the final battle of the Way of Legends (or any battle).

First, I will pick a person from the favs on this journal with a random number generator and give them 250 points
It just occurred to me that I am about 9k away from 300k page views.
How about that
I know the last two times I offered a drawing, but unfortunately, I don't have time this year ;_; .
So, for the FIRST PERSON to send me a NOTE (private note) with a screenshot of my 300,000 pageviews, you get a prize
Don't get too excited~
I will send that person either a free bed pillow case or throw pillow case: from my shop :iconinuderpplz:

I know I’ve talked about this topic in the past already but it’s still current for many artists, and I’d like to go into it a little further.

“Can you draw something for me? But I don’t have money.”
No matter how obvious you make it that you’re a professional artist, how eye-catching the commission pricelist on your user page is or how many “I don’t do requests / art-trades”-stamps you plaster all over your journal, people either don’t notice or simply don’t care. And their ways to persuade you to give them what they want get more creative and bold.
Classic approach :
A few sentences of praise and how much they adore your artwork and how much they’d love to have a picture from you. Sometimes they also mention that they don’t have money, which means they are aware of the
StudioJust wanted to give a little tour on my materials that I use to paint (or what I find works for me)Studio2 years ago in Personal More Like This
*Liquin- Used to use mineral spirits, and linseed oil but I found how much linseed oil tends to turn all my colours yellow. Mineral spirits became too watered down many people asked if I painted with watercolours. Liquin and a bit of poppy seed oil makes a perfect mixture. (Almond oil is what I want to try in future)
*Brushes- Round Synthetic mongoose. Flat square brushes was my fav back in the time but no longer.
*Pallet- I buy a painting frame with glass for $8 then I put a white paper under the glass and use that to mix my paints. I used to own a little fridge where I would store my pallet over night (it never dries but your fridge will smell like oil)
*Reference photos- I tape an ipad to my painting and I can zoom in, play music, photoshop and skype while I paint. Best invention ever !
*Paints- I have upgraded to higher more expensive paints thanks to my gift cards (think of it as an
