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
Significance is BeautifulLacking wisdom of my own, I'll share some more from Robert Henri (1865-1929):Significance is Beautiful1 year 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."

Knitting: The Marius Sweater- A National IconIt's no secret the Norway is famous for a couple things, doing pretty great in the Winter Olympics and knitting. Children are taught knitting in school and it is really part of the culture there. One of the most famous knit patterns in the world is a Norwegian design know as the Marius. The design is inspired by an even more well-known pattern called the Setesdal. The Marius pattern was created by Unn Søiland in 1953 and was named after Marius Erikson. Erikson wore many hats, he was an ace fighter pilot during WWII, a champion alpine skier, and an actor. It was in the movie Troll i ord that he appeared in the famous sweater that has now become a national icon.Knitting: The Marius Sweater- A National Icon5 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Hey, what's up?It's been a complete week plus some days that I haven't commented, faved or answered your message and it's something that haven't quite happened since a long time. The reason is probably that I found a new job and spend some time on other sites, even if it's not in a crazy amount of time, but it's being a breathe of new air and it's very enjoyable. I'm happy to say I also preordered new girls so pictures will come in a near future.Hey, what's up?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've also started to write down ideas in a little note book about pictures I want to create, in a more elaborate way than just taking pictures of a nendo in a simple situation. This will require a bit more accessories and maybe constructions, I don't know yet, but since I've been taking pictures for the fun and in a very simplistic way for more than 1 year, it's time for a change and a bit of a "level up". Don't expect a crazy change, I mean I just want to think more about my pictures and if I really do want to take one, do my best to make it more elaborate,

Passive Voice vs Active VoiceHello everyone!Passive Voice vs Active Voice2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
You've probably already read some of this week's wonderful journals on audience and beginning a story, and you're also probably wondering what exciting topic I've brought for you today. I suppose I'll tell you instead of keeping you in the dark.
Passive Voice vs Active Voice
I can see you're all excited.
To begin this article, I'll start by defining exactly what passive and active voice are.
With active voice, the agent (the person or thing carrying out the action) is the subject:
Harry ate six shrimp at dinner.
John opened the door.
Sue changed the flat tire.
There are two different types of passive voice constructions. In

Never give up on art.Don't. Please.Never give up on art.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Art is a fantastic talent that many people aren't lucky to have. Be greatful that you can draw so well, even if people may be more experienced than you.
And what if they are? Well that's okay, because there's someone better than them too. And one better than that person. But no one is the best.
You will never be a perfect artist, and thats completely okay. That's wonderful! No one will ever be the perfect artist. Not you, not that idol of yours (which is more of a matter of point of view/opinion), not even your idols idols.
I have learned a lot from my idols, especially that mistakes are okay. Mistakes and imperfections make us who we are as people and artists.
Words can hurt as well. But no one has the right to make you feel inferior. No matter what anyone ever says to you, don't quit on your art. Prove those people wrong and keep working hard.
A friend once received hate from someone and told me she was going to give up on her art. I had a breakdown and cried for hours
Las Vegas deviantMEET Wrap-Up!Las Vegas deviantMEET Wrap-Up!2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Our first-ever deviantMEET in Las Vegas hit the jackpot!
On Sunday, December 1st, deviants were already lined up outside the doors at 5:00 PM, even though the event wasn't scheduled to start until 5:30! (A handful of amazingly dedicated super deviants arrived as early as 3:30 PM!) Far be it for us to wait to get the party started, so we opened the doors a little early, allowing the crowd to rush in. After signing our guestbook – we know, physical guestbooks are so Web 1.0, but they're great mementos! – our devious artists dispersed to play at the deviantART booth.
Stocked with six Intuos 5 Wacom tablets to play with, a 24-inch Cintiq, SketchBook Pro for sketching and painting, enough table seating for traditional drawing and portfolio review, and bags upon bags of free swag (including stress balls, deviantART Sharpies, and tons of free stickers), everyone found an awesome and creative way to spend their time.
