How to be a good subject for your photographer!You should try to:How to be a good subject for your photographer!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- Instantly listens to quick prompts / direction.
- Be open to any critique mid or after shoots!
- Have a decent understanding of what the photographer is looking at (light/framing)
- Pose naturally and (if in Cosplay) act in character .
- Be confident for the duration of the shoot.
- Avoid being self concious.
- Be aware of the direction of light (to avoid unflattering shadows, etc)
- Loosen up! Literally. Shake your limbs and relax your muscles from time to time.
- Avoid squinting. If the sun is too bright you will naturally squint. Close your eyes and ask the photographer to do a count down.
- Throw ideas at your photographer. Be creative.
So there you go.. If you want to make life incredibly easy for your photographer try and nail the above points.
While I'm shooting I need 100% trust from my subject. I also can't have anyone disagreeing with my requests however odd they are (unless I ask em to do something dangerous, lol).
This completely breaks my creative flow

It's going to be rare that I make a brand new journal entry for The Alley, because honestly everywhere on DA, contests are running ALL THE TIME! So please be sure to check up on this entry to see what contests are going down!
Here are some contests that you might want to go ahead and have a look. I want to encourage those of you who feel a little intimidated by entering in contest/challenges to take a chance and enter. No one's going to bite your head off for giving it your best (if someone does let me know, cuz no one messes with my Gimp-Stars ). Enter, and don't be discouraged If you don't win, it's okay. The important thing is that you're moving outside your comfort zone and improving your craft.
If there's a contest you want listed in The Alley, let me know!

How to deal with criticism?Hi everyone! I'm Megan, but I guess you can call me Bunny. I usually go by that. Anyway, I'm one of the new admins here-I'm so super excited to be here, and be able to help this wonderful group. Today I'm just going to make a little blog about how to deal with criticism. Especially as artists, we all get it. So, I'll try and help. ♥How to deal with criticism?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Listen up. Figure out whether the criticism is constructive or simply rude. If criticism could be helpful, lend all ears and try to learn from it instead of getting defensive.
2. Respond calmly. Be respectful no matter what, and thank someone if the feedback is useful. If the critique is uncalled for (that story you wrote was crap!), kill 'em with kindness. A simple smile makes you the bigger person.
3. Don’t take it personally. Try to remove yourself from the situation and focus on what’s being critiqued.
4. Keep on keepin' on. Remember that the criticism represents just one person’s point of view. Know what your strengths are a
Dealing with Copyright InfringementEver since I started contributing stock and admiring the beautiful artworks submitted on this site, copyright infringement has always been a hot issue. Some topics & discussions are better left to run their course and fade away, but I think repetition should be encouraged when it comes to copyright infringement. For every person who learns about the importance of intellectual property, there are still many others who remain ignorant or just don't care.Dealing with Copyright Infringement2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can sympathize somewhat with the well-intentioned person who simply didn't know any better, although it's still no excuse to steal images. Thing is, they didn't know they were stealing, so it makes it easier for me to forgive as long as they are receptive, take my concerns seriously and learn a life lesson to never infringe on copyrights again.
There are however more shady characters who know full well they are stealing images, but just don't care. And even when you confront them about it, they will tell you to go to hell because the s

Art thief WARNINGHello my dear fellowsArt thief WARNING1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I spotted out a company making profit with stolen artworks, it wasn't that hard though since they are going around on DA with an aggressive self promotion.
The poor quality mess itself is quite fishy but I contacted artist I recognized and he didn't give permission for usage. There are a lot of other artworks I don't know so if you recognize any of the authors please contact them and help with spreading this journal. Aside the online shop there are kickstarter projects and DA group and personal page as well.
You can find all the links below
The only way to stop art thieves is to not buy any of their products, if you want to support your favorite artists buy a print with great quality from the official stores.

So here I am, armed with a snickers bar and a cherry coke, ready to do a new feature!

This is just my way of showing my appreciation for you to take the time out to add me to your watch list. You are all awesome! I think I might start doing this regularly instead of going with the comments thing. You all are the entire reason why I have this account. I love seeing what you do with my stock.

Want to plan a cosplay shoot, but somehow things just don't turn out right? Maybe the photos were not how you visualised them, or that the photographer seemed to be extra grumpy, or you just don't know what's going on? Read on for how to get the best out of your cosplay shoot:
The 4 Ps:
Having a plan is essential and should take up the most time overall in your shoot. Speak to the photographers closely, because they will be the ones producing the photos that will be the end result; make sure they are aware of the concept and background of the series you're shooting. Some photographers will want to do their own research prior to the shoot (reading the manga/watching the anime/looking up reference photos) - so make sur
When Being Human Just Isn't Enough:icontechgnotic:When Being Human Just Isn't Enough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The allure of Anthro Art is obvious to anyone who ever “owned” and loved a pet. (Only those who have never loved and shared lives with a pet speak of pet “ownership”!) Once a bond has been formed between a human and an animal the rigid distinctions between what is human and what is animal begin to fracture.
The definition of “being” becomes suddenly far more expansive. And soon the bonded human begins feeling spiritual affinities with the “animal” that are undeniably powerful and as “real” as any felt with other humans. The desire to leave all the lies and hypocrisies of human society behind and join in with a simpler and somehow more “honest” society of different beings in nature can become palpable and intense. “The grass is always greener…” and, oh!, to scamper across it on four liberating paws!

(...) Everyone has a moment when they think “I am a bad artist.” and they think that because they see a level of skill they have not achieved yet. If this is the case, every artist ever is a bad artist, because every artist ever has had some idea, some plan, some goal of a skill level or creation that they have not achieved yet. And that’s good. Learning and growth and moving forward are all good things, so instead of trying to be some fictionalized version of a good artist, let’s all be bad artists together.

How should I price my art?Hi,How should I price my art?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you spend a lot of time in the DA forums, you will see this topic spring up again and again. Whether you want to earn a living doing freelance art, or you just want to do an occasional commission, these guidelines may help you:
Why is it so difficult to choose a price? Why can't someone look at my art and tell me what to charge? Because it is not just about price and skill level! If three people can draw the same drawing with the same level of skill, one might be able to sell the art for $10, another might be able to sell the art for $100 and the third might not be able to sell it at all depending on how good they are at "marketing" (looking for clients and interacting with them). An artist's ability to seek out clients, choose the right clients, offer a type of work that will sell, communicate effectively, and provide value that their competitors cannot match... is difficult to gauge by looking at a few art samples.
The starting price you pick right now doesn't ha
