I'd just like to mention publicly, that I, as well as artists in general, are not art vending machines.
You don't type suggestions in, and then have a slot where artwork comes out for free .
Important to Note: I am not addressing any individual in particular. If you think this is about *you* specifically ( whoever you are)- don't. This about the private notes I get, with alarming volume, where people feel they can simply request artwork from me for free. I get a *lot* of these. Which prompted me to post something about it. I usually just ignore them, or, if I feel particularly polite that day, I send them a note back saying I don't do requests.
But they never stop o_O. And it's not that I mind suggestions in comments under artwork, such as: "Oh, I hope one day you will paint _________." or, "

That watch me on here, so they will get a watch back:
-Look, this isn't myspace or facebook, just because you are watching me
DOESN'T mean I am going to watch you. I ONLY watch those who I feel
inspired by, those who produce the work that I want to see. This site
isn't about that, it's about Art, that is why it's called DeviantART, not
DeviantFriends. Don't ask people to watch you either, they should want
to, just asking someone to is fucking silly and ignorant. I won't be nice.
Strangers who note me to like their facebook, vote for their video, etc:
-This is deviantART, stop trying to make everyone follow you or support you on
other sites. Stop it, we don't give a fuck, really. Ask me if I can take a look
through your gallery, and I will happily do so. Otherwise, I will tell you to
go fuck off because I consider it spamming, even more so when EVERYONE
does it. Facebook doesn't protect arti

Ok first important thing...
PLEASE, READ THE RULES
NO OBVIOUS MAMMALS
This means no creatures that look heavily based from canines and felines. Humans/Anthros are ok, as long as they look mostly "reptilish"
New tips have also been added to the "avoid" section bellow.
The contest is extended until March 7!

I'm looking for a new creature character(s) I will like. No mammals
I would prefer something like a reptile/snake/wyvern/monster/insect
I will make of the winning designs my characters (OCs), I will draw them and probably commission other artists to draw them too. Winning designs will be mine to keep but you will still get credits for creating them, plus a prize in points or in money (USD, PayPal required) to your choice! If you don't win, you can

Devious Journal Entrywell since i get slugged into the "Goth" stereotype at school i decided i'd dial it up dramatically to mess with them (well more dramatic then normal). So i put on fish net gloves, studded dog collar, complete with tag, matching wrist cuffs, thick black eye-liner black eye shadow, and black lippy. my nails were already black since i like them that colour and i changed all my piercings from studs to rings so they would be more noticeable. (i have like 10 on my face, five on one ear, three the other, one on my nose and one on my lip).Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All of this with the gaudy school uniform of grey and navy, it clashed perfectly.
so i stepped out side and had my back to the driveway and when i turned around these two young people that were about 20, carrying bibles and talking excitedly to each other saw me. Their faces went blank, they turned around and walked briskly back down the driveway and around the corner to the next house.
and all i did was stare at them.
fucking made my day.

DRAGON CASTLE by randis
According to the Chinese zodiac, 2012 has ushered in the year of the dragon upon the world stage.
In addition to occupying an ages old position in our cultural consciousness, legend and folklore surrounding
the dragon mythology has long been firing the kiln of our dreams with fright and menace. When we are speaking of
Dragons, we are speaking from ancient texts gathered form the beginnings of kept records of any kind and fro
Back to Basics Photography - CompositionLately I've seen quite a few photos that have potential, but need some work. Composition is one of the most important parts to taking any photo (and making any piece of art really) and so I thought I'd share a few basic rules and tips. The word composition simply means 'putting together' and so, with any piece of art, it's how the piece is put together. With a bit of practice while keeping these tips in mind, you can create a more impacting, pleasing to the eye piece of work that will draw the viewer in and keep them interesting.Back to Basics Photography - Composition2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You could crop your images afterwards when you get them onto the computer, but it'd be lovely to have a great image right off the boot, right? By keeping in mind the things below, you'll be well on your way to taking better photos. And don't forget, it's always better to know the rules before you start break them A few tips before we start;
Look around using the viewfinder every time you take a picture.

It's getting old.:icontso00: We've mentioned before that we don't mind being referenced, inspiration, or anything of the sort for any artist, nor does similarities in characters bother us. We enjoy seeing the creations of nearly everyone- new or experienced. We've dealt with theft, stupidity, etc. While normally it doesn't phase us all too much, we are getting rather exhausted and annoyed at the fact that the same person has been stalking our page and attempting to 'create' clones or knock offs- sure there's nothing against it, nor is it wrong, but it's getting old to see our page being watched closely and quite a few things have been replicated and even denying it.It's getting old.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bluntly, we don't give a shit about popularity- strip our pageviews, or our watchers, we'd dislike the issue just as much.
We love how AFTER our character Loh was created- another 'Loh' is in the process- she doesn't exist yet, but I'm sure she will look rather similar to ours, unless this journal is viewed of course.

Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

Hello, dear deviants!
Do you want more constructive feedback? You can get it for free.
In order to participate you only have to:
fav this journal
comment on it.
I will make sure I visit your page and comment on one of your deviations, giving it a constructive comment/critique.
one lucky deviant who participates in this project will get 100 points
Why am I doing this?
I'm trying to show to deviants a real value of good feedback. It's something we should all learn to appreciate, when the comments aren't just pure words like awesome, wow, good, cool...
Deviantart is a big community with many exposed/underexposed artists but all of us are the same when it comes to getting feedback. We all get good and bad.
artzI think that anger from visual artists towards other artists never has anything to do with anatomy, style, age, content, or personality. These are just icing on the cake. At the core, I think there two kinds of practicing artists:artz1 year ago in Personal More Like This
- People who believe that you need to be qualified (by an abstract or specific entity, person, or group) in order to make a living or name for yourself. Anyone who is doing these things without qualification is a cheater who will fail ultimately.
- People who believe qualification is subjective, or even irrelevant, and you might as well shoot for the name or living while you progress your skills anyway. Anyone who isn't trying to make their mark while practicing anyway is wasting their time.
I think that a recognizable name and income are the "holy grail" achievements for artists… though obviously there are many tiers and kinds of achievements, some big and some small! I suppose it's a little natural for artists to be angry, envious, or upset whe
