Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.Why many artists suck at marketing2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S

The profile picture issueYep. Another rant. It all started a few weeks ago.The profile picture issue2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Apparently there was a topic on DA's forum that was about "profile picture whoring". I honestly didn't know such a thing existed, let alone it would be allowed on DA (artists shaming, isn't it?). I don't even know the URL anymore, neither if it was removed by the mods or not. How I got to know about this topic, you ask? Well, I was tagged. Apparently my current profile picture was posted by someone in the topic, who obviously forgot that I would be mentioned when the picture was posted. The idiot :')
Anyhow. I understand DA's culture nowadays. While I can still remember the days on the internet in which you were only a written username with some text, nowadays the internet is all social media. And social media is full of people screaming for attention. Showing pictures of themselves, just to show how pretty they are and how much their lives are better than yours.

Protect yourself against fraudAlthough, as an active member of the community, it's nearly impossible to have missed this huge issue, I think it's very important to warn people for this.Protect yourself against fraud1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What happened is a large case fraud in which apparently one user (under multiple names) scammed several members of DeviantArt community. Leaving some people as much as $3000 in debt!!! Money they, most likely, never see back.
Even though the user is banned by DeviantArt now, there's no reason why it won't happen again.
After all, the problem is caused by a loophole in PayPal's rules. So basically everybody that's using PayPal for its business (and that's a lot of us) is at risk.
People doing commissions
People selling adoptables
To understand where all of this comes from, it's first of all important to know what a PayPal chargeback actually is.
This video offers a proper explanation of what chargeback is, and what it should

Hi to my old watchers as well as the new ones!
So today's exactly 2 years since I made this new account. I also noticed that it reached 10,000+ watchers up till today and here i'm like, "Ho shiz.... what's going on here :iconunseenplz:"
I know it must have been the pantsus that lead you all here /shot
I know i'm not a really good person because I don't reply to all the comments and only draw stuff I want to draw most of the time, but I want to thank all who have been kind and gave lots of support.
Therefore, I thought I'd do a small raffle. The prize will be a pixel doll + food something like this:
Unfortunately, since i'm still busy with lots of commissions and IRL events, there will be only 1 lucky winner.
Yeah it's small, but I want to show so

Asexuality: I am louder than who I say am"I've found that people think it's okayAsexuality: I am louder than who I say am2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
to have all kinds of sexual orientation..."
"...as long as you have one.
If you don't then you're broken."
The Asexual Orientation
Asexuality is a sexual orientation where a person does not experience sexual attraction. One out of every hundred people is likely to be asexual and facts such as this are still pushing boundaries and challenging the thought that the pursuit of happiness doesn't have to include sexual attraction.
I am very passionate about creating bridges of understanding, as I have said many times before. To understand asexuality better, take into consideration that there are different ways of being attracted to a person and that these attractions are not necessarily tied together.

I don't own Hetalia! Just this plot
You and your best friend, Alfred, were going to a concert which his favorite band was playing.
Well you weren't going willingly, you were being dragged. He told you he wanted you to go because all his other friends were boring, unlike you, which you thought was ironic since you were such a quiet, awkward, book worm, nerd. You wore these glasses that Alfred teased you about them being "hipster glasses", but you really just liked them because they were good for reading.
You were in your room, ready for the concert. You wore a slouchy black knit cardigan, a union flag spaghetti strap tank top, dark blue mid-thigh distressed shorts, and black ankle combat boots with spikes at the ankles. You put on your dangling spike earrings and fix your very long wavy, (hair color) hair. You applied a small amount of black eyeliner and mascara, so you wouldn't look too bare, besides it was a rock co

You are worth it!Just one of the many messages I got here on DeviantArt;You are worth it!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I don't know if it's okay to send a note, I don't want to bother you. You faved my artwork, and I just wanted to thank you for that. I just saw your profile and I wanted to say: you are an AMAZING artist and great with story lines. Amazing talent. It's an honor to meet someone like you. I do a lot of art myself, but I'm nowhere as good as you are. I honestly don't know why a great artist like you faved my work. I don't think I'm worth the attention, since you're a way better artist than I'll ever be. But thanks a lot.
Honestly... the amount of comments I get like this nowadays is high.
And although I have to admit the whole I-like-your-art-thing is kinda flattering, it somehow still makes me sad.
Why all this buzz over a simple fave? It's DeviantArt! A digital collection of art. We are supposed to fave artwork that we like!
Why all this insecurity? Since when does the level of art

Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in

First of all I would like to thank everyone who partook in the lottery. I am glad that so many of you liked the idea and decided to share few sweet words with your friends. I read some of your conversations in comment section and wow, some of them were so intense (like, really intense - wow guys get a room LOL OR JUST MARRY HER ALREADY, GEEZ :icondumbledorenoplz.
It took me a while to choose the winners, since there was a number of participants that wasn't viable for the lottery, either because of not fulfilling the primary rules (being my watcher; account has to be at least 2 months old) or not following the two mandatory steps (for example, comment under this journal). Which is a bit sad, but rules are rules and there's always next time!
In any case I finally managed to properly choose the random winners and here are the lucky three participants!
