Is your piece a vector, vexel or mixed media?First of all; don't create art to make it go in a certain category - if you feel the need to reach outside the rules, do so - but please don't try to sneak it in. This is a group for vector and vexels, if your piece isn't one, we won't upload it to the gallery - it isn't because your piece isn't "worthy" or "good enough" or because we want to punish youIs your piece a vector, vexel or mixed media?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you might have gotten a message on your submissions where one of us asks you to explain a certain part of your piece or what program(s) you used. We hope to stop doing that - we would rather be able to accept all the submissions and count on you guys to know what your piece is.
So here it is - the steps to figuring out where your piece goes (in our gallery, but also when you upload it to dA and need to choose a category)
What program did you use?
If you are using a program capable of making vector-layers and resizing these infinit, your work is a vector so far. If you merge the vector-layers (or s

Please do not repost the image of the adoptable unless you are the person who purchased it with my permission!! You are allowed to alter the design to your liking, but please do not majorly change aspects of the design so it no longer resembles the original adoptable.
TWO STRIKE RULE: I understand that sometimes money matters can be difficult for people, but this does not excuse "bidding because you got carried away". Please treat an auction here on DA as you would on Ebay. Once you put in a bid, you are expected to be able to pay the amount within 24 hours after the auction has ended. Once you place a bid on an adoptable or auction of any kind, you are expected to be able to pay that amount with no problem. You are committing to payment! If you withdrawal from an auction for any reason being the highest bidder, I will be giving you only one more chance until I bl
The original species - styleUPDATE: Yeah, all the things below pretty much apply to all art here nowadays.The original species - style2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I don't really know how to dive into this subject or does it really need any preface. So here we go, fasten your seatbelts.
The number of original species is increasing every day and there is one thing many of them have in common. They're drawn in a similar style. They may look very different otherwise, anatomically but the techinques that are used to draw them look very much the same. Not all original species but a large number of them.
I've also noticed that some people draw other people's original species imitating the creators style even if it's nothing how they'd normally draw, and I wouldn't be able to tell them apart if the piece didn't have their name on it. Some of these people even start losing their own style little by little when they transport this ''adopted style'' to other art as well.
I don't know if any of this is happening subconciously and I'm certainly not attacking anyone for

YOU NEED A CONTRACT IF YOU SELL.
YOU NEED TERMS AND SERVICE AGREEMENTS.
YOU NEED TO KEEP EVERYTHING.
If you sell and you do not keep your notes organized, do not have contracts, do not have agreements. You are going to get fucked over (unless your incredibly experienced and can smell fraud from a mile away). I say this over and over and over and people tell me they don't want to be too "serious" or they don't know what to say. It is your responsibility as a business owner to keep track of everything. Not just because it is good business but so when someone tries to rip you off after work is delivered by asking for a refund from their financial institution you can go.

I knew this would happen. God saying I'm angry is the understatement of the century. I'm so frustrated with not being about to do anything that I could cry or kill a man. Hopefully I choose crying otherwise my roommate might want to start running.

Every time I try to get them to come up with another solution to get it to me today all they can fucking say is "please contact Wacom for more options". I call Wacom. Please call UPS in order to solve this problem.

Helpful Habits for CommissionersA lot of people have been asking me to write up something on the topic of taking and pricing commissions like I did with conventions, so here you go!Helpful Habits for Commissioners1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So what is a commission? If you didn't already know, a commission in way I will be discussing is when a person pay for an artist to draw them something. Neato, right? Money for art, couldn't be better.
Well there are a few catches to this art thing professionally and non-professionally; especially on an amateur level. First off, you wont get paid nearly what you should be getting paid...so if your motivation is money... you should pick a different field of interest. Second, you need to build your people skills. Third money management is key. Fourth, time management or cry in a corner.
Let's discuss the first point, not getting paid enough! Illustrators and professional artists in the industry are currently getting paid the same rates as they were 50 years ago... the exact same. Inflation has not touched the art field so we are making less

Hi STelari, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
I'm a creation addict... and my name is Sylwia (: My personality and interests are clearly visible in what and how I do; a bit twisted, with a creepy shell, sometimes rigid, but I tend to hide a smile in details that require your search.
I'm crazy about trying new things and techniques and what you can see in my dA gallery is just a tip of an iceberg.
What is it that attracts you to Traditional Art?
It's traditional (: Anything I do has a connection to the past and it gives me a chill when I think that some of the techni

I'm not quite sure what YouTube video led me to this website, but I'm definitely sure that YouTube is the reason why I'm here.
I originally started out on my previous account, wingedwolf134
But I left, so I could start off fresh.
And I'd honestly rather not have any connections with that account at all,
but I might as well share it with the public.
And this, is where I met my best friends, Ludiiicrous, Z-BA, and AuraGhost as a few examples, whom have inspired me to do artwork over the years since 2012!
