Thanks for the suggestions guys! They're brilliant! Found some goodies already on my kindle, currently starting on Corporeal Daughters by our very own deviant bandeau can't tell you what I think yet. I kinda opened it and then got distracted by something shiny.. Oh yeah, this list. I figure you guys can fave this if you want and when you're struggling for ideas you can have a looksee. All recommended by wonderful devious deviants. Or you can look at my poll... but this is alphabetemetized and AWESOMEIt's Like A DA Bookclub! YAY!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Starving ArtistThe Starving ArtistStarving Artist9 months ago in Personal More Like This
This topic is about rates and wages that an artist should start to consider when taking on a new job. This is my advice, so take this as advice.
So let’s begin. As an artist you should know right away that you are valuable. You can recreate people’s imagination and ideas into reality. You are the one who brings people together to be able to all see the vision for the final product. This is valuable. Keep this in mind when you take new jobs. Think about how many hours you plan on slaving over iteration after iteration. Because even though you may have a voice, if you agree to whatever the arrangement are, you must live up to their standards. So make sure you are paid well.
Imagine a client asks you to do 50 hours of work for only $500 dollars. That’s $10 an hour. That is not enough. You can go get a job that could pay you as much if not more, without being an artist. I’ve seen people’s salaries as low as 30k a year. This is not acc

Once per month we'll select one active user in the forums and we'll feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity to everybody to get featured! Every month, we'll create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a different theme. This thread will be made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs from your gallery matching the theme and, at the end of the month, we'll select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article
The best thing is that the only requirement is that you're an active member of the forums!

Significance is BeautifulLacking wisdom of my own, I'll share some more from Robert Henri (1865-1929):Significance is Beautiful6 months ago in Personal More Like This
"In my understanding of color, there is absolutely no such thing as color for color's sake. Colors are beautiful when they are significant. Lines are beautiful when they are significant. It is what they signify that is beautiful to us, really. The color is the means of expression. The reason that a certain color in life, like the red in a young girl's cheek, is beautiful, is that it manifests youth, health; in another sense, that it manifests her sensibility."

When selling your work...Keep in mind this:When selling your work...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
800 points = around $10.
400 points = around $5
40 points = ¢50
Do you really want to spend a long amount of time on a drawing only to receive the equivalent of half a dollar?
If you want to share things for cheap or free because you enjoy doing it than by all means do so, but what I'm saying is, don't under value yourself, and for the love of god don't do commissions for 5 or 10 points. You're working for next to nothing if you do that.
What you need to do is find a good place to sell your art so you can sell it at a reasonable fair price that's fair to both you and the buyer. There are places around on dA for this.
Commissions-R-Us say that "A group dedicated to helping people in the search of commissions to be made, allowing them to find somebody to request a commission from deviants at different ways to pay, such as using the Deviantart Points, paypal, etc.
We also have a Priority Commission List for those who are in need of money! Please check them out

Cultivating Your Drawing SkillsI believe drawing skills are never innate: when someone is a natural, what they really have are remarkable observational skills and the ability to apply them in their case, through drawing (it could just as well have been espionage ). Drawing skills can be cultivated by anyone able to use their minds and hands. There are basically only two approaches to do this: theory (+practice) and observation (+studies).Cultivating Your Drawing Skills8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Theory is a structured, organised approach, learning from someone more experienced who's laid it all out for us in a course, book or tutorial.
Observation is an organic, unpredictable approach, learning directly from the real world around us and gradually deriving principles from it.
Alone, they are both incomplete; trying to work with only one of them would be like trying to walk with one foot. Studying lays down a solid foundation, which remains abstract and limited until observation brings it to life with details and real-life application

How to make UTAU english & create an UTAUloidOkay, so this is a tutorial on how to make your own utauloid and how to make the program UTAU English. First off, to you new creators out there, do not make your characters look like vocaloids; it's stupid and not very creative. Make your own designs. What you'll need is a microphone, a program that records, and a folder with the name of your UTAUloid. You'll also need to know how to pronounce the language you want to do.How to make UTAU english & create an UTAUloid4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since my utauloid is Japanese, most of my helping will lean towards the Japanese voice bank making. Your recordings need to clear and not too loud. This is just a rumor that I've been hearing, but apparently if you make your recordings 5 seconds long, then your utauloid will sound good. Idk if that's true but just make sure that your recordings aren't too short and not too long. Notice that once u have stopped recording you'll see a line or no sounds. They show up when u haven't recorded something or you're finished. Please remove those so that only you recordings sta
