Announcing The First Lit-Visual Alliance CONTEST!Announcing the first contest for theAnnouncing The First Lit-Visual Alliance CONTEST!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists.
So. In the spirit of thorns brilliant Complaint Challenge I would try to do something about that. And so :iconlit-visual-alliance: was born.
As often as I hear literary artists complaining about lack of exposure, I hear visual artists complaining of a lack of inspiration and motivation to create art. And that, I must say, is simply nonsense. There is a massive amount of inspiration to be found on dA - and it's called th
average pay rates for comic book artists:"Generally, the good graphic novels fetch $100 - $300 per page, although professionals who have been in the industry for a long time can command as much as three times that amount. In fact, one elite illustrator commanded as much as $1,000 a page (on a 22-page comic book)! Most of the popular titles that artists, like David Cassaday, work on are monthly issues, which end up providing him with a six-figure salary. The back-end royalties on merchandise, trade paperbacks and movie royalties are also generous."average pay rates for comic book artists:3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"In 2008, Sean Jordan, founder of Army Ant Publishing, claimed established freelance comic book artists were paid anywhere from $220 to $4,400 per book project, which breaks down to $10 to $200 per page. Pencil and inker artists can ask for $75 to $200 a page. Colorists often fall in the range of $35 to $125, and writers and letterers make $10 to $50 a page.

TALENT IS EARNEDTalent is EarnedTALENT IS EARNED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get it. There are some people out there that do have some extreme capabilities right out of the womb, but this is targeted to those who are average joes, who think they can’t do things that a person with ‘Talent’ can.
Let’s start by defining the word ‘Talent’. According to dictionary.com it states
1. a special natural ability or aptitude: a talent for drawing.
2. a capacity for achievement or success; ability: young men of talent.
3. a talented person: The cast includes many of the theater’s major talents.
4. a group of persons with special ability: an exhibition of water colors by the local talent.
5. Movies and Television. professional actors collectively, especially star performers.
This definition, in my opinion, is misused when said to me. Because to me it implies that what I do, is specially natural to me and

Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce itContest Announcement~2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration

You held out your hand.
Jordan grabbed it and shook it.
"I feel so normal now," he half-joked.
You giggled and looked to Cierra, who was giggling like crazy behind you.
"What are you giggling at, Ms. Giggly Pants?" You teased.
Cierra grabbed your hand, making you yelp, and dragged you to her room.
"Bye!" You yelped to Jordan as Cierra closed and locked the door.
After a second, you heard Jordan's door close.
"He so likes you!" Cierra gushed.
"Okay then." You felt heat rise to your cheeks.
"Hey, what day is it?" Cierra changed the topic.
"Um...." You thought for a second. "Saturday."
Both were silent for a few seconds.
"Disney Movie Day!" You both cheered.
Since you two were little, every Saturday Cierra would go over your house and both of you would watch a Disney/Pixar movie.
"Which one do you want to watch, Y/N?" Cierra

Watch me playing the piano! (Stay by Rihanna) :DHeey people!Watch me playing the piano! (Stay by Rihanna) :D3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just made an improvised piano cover of the song "Stay" by Rihanna... It is one of my fav songs in the moment. I have played the piano since I was 8 years old, but I never learned how to read the notes. So I learned everything by listening and trying out to hit the right chords. The cover wont be perfect in terms of arrangement, tempo or hitting the right notes all the time, but playing the piano is my passion (next to art) and I thought maybe it could inspire some of you! ^^ The cover is 100% improvised and it is not a "melody" cover, but only an arrangement of the chords of the song. If you like the video, please subscribe our channel, more videos (art- and music related) will follow!
If you like the video, you can also share it with your friends! ^^ That would be cool! And thumbs up are highly appreciated!

'When I was younger

He broke his own heart

A young 5 year old Andy observed his father with curious eyes, as he turned his back after saying goodnight. He had been a wreck for a week ever since his mom had left. But Andy didn't know where she went, or when she'd come back. Or that she never would come back. "Daddy?" he asked in a small voice. His dad turned, his eyes red and puffy and voice hoarse. "Yes, Andy?"
"Whens Mommy gonna come back?" he asked innocently, confused as to where she had gone. His dad sighed sadly and shook his head.
"I don't know..." He said before closing the door, leaving Andy alone to his thoughts. Thoughts like: 'Where did mommy go? Why did she leave? And for how long? Who will make me my dinner every night and pack my lunches for school? Who will give me g
