How to source artI'd like to share something here that has been bothering me A LOT lately. The ones that follow me on FB probably know about that. My Elsa drawing got a crazy unexpected popularity and since the first moment I posted it here (and people shared in Tumblr), it's been reproduced over 15 times by people that didn't mention me or at least say "I used an image from internet but I don't know the artist". Nope. They simply took someone else's work, copied/traced it and even dared to say that they're "proud of their work".How to source art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes accidents happen. After all, maaaany years ago I copied another artist's work and didn't mentioned it, but I was 17 years old and hardly ever knew what "art" was X_D I posted it here in deviantART and got a bunch of well deserved comments saying "this is so wrong", "you copied from this artist!", "you are horrible!". Since that moment, I put all my efforts to:
1- Contact the artist and ask for permission to reproduce their artwork.
2- Give credits (it's easy an

Most amazing cakes ever!Seriously! ._. The amazing moofestgirl made amigurumi versions of my mini polymer clay cakes, and they're the most adorable thing ever crafted by human hands! I am in so much joy right now, they make me happy every time I look at themMost amazing cakes ever!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Based on these:
In more happy cake news, the sweetest kimchikawaii made a MondCAKEZ, the love child of my Blue Fondant Cake and my Mondkatzen. I still can't get over the idea of how clever and adorable it is! Look at all those colors!!
The MondCAKEZ design is available for prints and the amigurumi cakes are available for commission. kimchikawaii and moofestgirl requested my permission to do so.
aaaaah I am so happy to see all the pretty happy cakes ._. I know not everyone is into polymer clay

Adoptable PoliciesGeneralAdoptable Policies1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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

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.
It wasn't wnough that Wacom had issues getting the right fucking package to me but now fucking UPS fucking forgot my package God knows where and instead of getting it yesterday like I was suppose to it now won't be delivered until tomorrow at the earliest. 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.
are you fucking serious.

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

As part of Traditional Art History Month I will be interviewing some of the Traditional Art Community, including your lovely TradART Community Volunteers
Today it's the lovely STelari, your Community Volunteer for Traditional Art
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!
They're the main reason as to why I even found an interest in

And I decided to make more useful journals You have to wait for my next tutorial A LOT, so I decided to make short tutorials here...in journals. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for all newbies who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: How to make layers, How to change color to a layer, How to make groups/folders, How to change background color, How to rotate canvas and all basics in tool menu on the right side. In this tutorial I used my newest image Mermaid's Wisps, just to show you few things (I just had to open something )
If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big as my screen 1920 x 1080px... OK I cropped bar below ). I used Photoshop CS6 here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials l

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.
