Murder at the Castle! Let the investigation begin!Last night, Cinderella was to host the greatest ball in all the land in honour of her Husband, Prince Charming. It had been months of hard work; every servant and helper furiously putting together the finest of touches to ensure everything was perfect. Invitations had been sent out to exclusive friends and acquaintances alike, reaching the farthest parts of fairyland. It was to be the event of the century.Murder at the Castle! Let the investigation begin!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There was no denying, Cinderella had become highly stressed of late. Organising such a fabulous ball had taken its toll, especially when perfection was her objective. Her inner control freak had taken over and she no longer cared who she upset or angered as long as the ball was exact. Friends were no longer happy with her, she wouldn't keep promises- let alone attend unnecessary events such as Alice's weekly tea party. In fact, even her own husband, who all this was for, had not been in her mind.
The Ball was lavish; champagne fountains, golden swans, shimmery streamers, a stylish d&

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

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.

The original species - styleUPDATE: Yeah, all the things below pretty much apply to all art here nowadays.The original species - style3 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

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

Normal orders will be open August 1st for any left over copies.
I decided to switch printing places last minute. While the old place was more streamlined and a larger company, I worried about their attention to detail and they couldn’t ensure a few things I really cared about because of their high volume orders. The new place is quite a bit more expensive, but I believe the quality will be higher. (Also silk-coated covers - I love the feel of them!)

Famous Photographs: The Afghan GirlIf you run a google search on what are the top famous Photographs of all time, The Afghan Girl is sure to appear. She is truly a face from History and one that many across the globe have tried to capture within others time and time again. But what exactly has made this image and its photographer so captivating?Famous Photographs: The Afghan Girl2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Source: Daily Mail/National Geographic/Steve McCurry
Eyes, they say, are the window to the soul. And capturing such a piercing and expressive look in a photograph is a highly sought after skill. The Afghan Girl exhibits suspense, suspicion and a sense of distrust at the person behind the lens, she gives off an air of maturity, a foreboding feeling - a vulnerability behind years of strength. That, is what makes her so captivating.
