REGARDING ART THEFTWe now live in a digital wild west where our files may be as valuable as bank vaults. Artists and writers ignorant of the flimsy nature of 'security' on ANY internet site are deluding themselves. There is no such thing.REGARDING ART THEFT6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am old enough and have made enough art to feel ok about releasing it to the world to natter on it's own - but I do not anticipate a lauded art career anymore, and I hold back anything I hope to take to a publisher or gallery some day.
I've advised other artists here to ALWAYS keep their best work offline if one plans to exhibit, to get a manager, or formally move into ANY professional art marketplace. Publishing on DEVART is considered real, honest-to-God PUBLISHING, regardless of if YOU consider it just for fun! These (now published) images (OR STORIES!) are no longer considered viable for most galleries (or literary publishers,) unless they specifically state they are willing to accept previously 'exhibited' work
URGENT. Please help.I just got back from the vets about 10 minutes ago and I'm actually in quite a panic.URGENT. Please help.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
About 3 hours ago at 11pm, mum started yelling for my help and when I went to see what was wrong, I saw my cat sprawled on the floor hissing, spitting and screaming in pain. She had things clinging to her fur, her arm was twisted in a strange position and at first we thought that she might've got something stuck in her paw since she wouldn't let us anywhere near her front right arm.
So upon closer inspection, we realised that something was pretty wrong and rushed her to the emergency vets surgery. They told us that she's in shock right now and she's been dosed with pain killers and nothing can be done until morning, but she'll need to have (several, I imagine) xrays and to find out whether she's fractured, dislocated or broken her arm. Either way, this is going to be very costly to pay for the xrays, to sedate her and to treat her. I know this doesn't sound serious, but..We all know the alternative op

Some short news, I've been currently working on the commissions, unfortunately, the first one is a pretty long one, 14 pages with complicated background, but I'll balance between that and my other comics, I actually hate having to do that just as I started with IISY and Dark Fantasy, I added a new rule to my commissions info because of it, each slot will be up to a maximum of 5 pages long each, this means if you want a 6 pages comic it would take 2 commission slots, this would NOT affect the price, but it would better for the people who's next on the list, also, let's say I have 3 slots open, you get the last slot and want a 6 or more pages comic, I would only be able to take 5, please understand my situation here, I've been wanting to draw these two comics for years now and right after I started I got stuck having to do a commission for a 14 pages story

I have just finished the final book in the Hunger Games series.....I cried...so hard on like the last 5 pages.
These are a few of my favorite lines.
"So after, when he whispers, "you love me, Real or not real?" I tell him, "Real."
"They play in the Meadow, the dancing girl with the dark hair and blue eyes. The boy with the blonde curls and grey eyes, struggling to keep up with her on his chubby toddler legs."
And my absolute favorite!:
"My children, who don't no they play on a graveyard. Peeta says it willl be okay. We have each other. And the book. We can make them understand in a way that will make them braver. But one day i'll have to explain about my nightmaires. Why they came. And why they won't ever really go away."

How To Give Better Comments
During our visit here at deviantART, upon submitting our deviations, what is expected next? Comments! However, here's a little fun past-time activity: take all the excellent, if not better, deviations comments in your gallery. Now take a look at all the deviation comments you've ever received. You will notice that good comments don't happen as often as they should. Although we all want good comments and to be better commenters ourselves, we have to act upon it instead of just sitting around and hoping to receiving nice comments after submitting something. Give, to receive.
Here I show you the basic concept of commenting, to make yourself a better commenter; and I don't mean being a 'good' commenter since everyone comments in his or her own way. That i

So this is a super last minute update and i'm sorry for not mentioning this earlyer. But there will be a second chance to get an art book with soft covers out of the ones that got left over from Aniventure. They are printed with another printing company but i'll explain everything later. The point is, the soft cover is $10 cheaper than the hard cover. I will make the announcement when i get some time
So just a quick update, my pre-orders end on September 20, so it's the last chance to get your hands on a copy of my art book!

The Myth of TalentThe Myth of TalentThe Myth of Talent9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
If there's one comment that is made more often than any other on any decent piece of artwork it's "you're so talented."
It's also the one [positively intended] comment I've seen the most artists bristle at, sometimes even retort. For some of us, it's a pet hate. Why?
We know it's meant as a compliment, so we smile and say thank you and try to resist the urge to insist that 'talent' is the biggest myth there is. Not only is it a myth, at its worst the use of the word is potentially destructive to the artistic community.
What's so wrong with the word 'talent'?
You might not realise it, but calling someone talented can often feel like a backhanded compliment. No skilled artist woke up one day just being able to do what they can do. We were all born completely unable to do just about anything useful. But through daily practise we learned how to use our limbs for motility, our voices for words, an
