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

5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional and Digital art are both completely different mediums, able to create the same product. It is possible to paint a beautiful, watercolor-like painting digitally, as well as achieve the cleanliness and color options of a digital piece traditionally. Therefore, using one or the other to express ourselves creatively is, just like many things in life, just an option. People may have personal, sometimes even illogical reasons for using one or the other and that's fine. Today, however, I'm a cheerleader for the "traditional side", and I offer you 5 reasons to do it traditionally!
1. Oh the wonderful smell of art supplies > I'm not talking about the toxic smell that come painting techniques require, of course. Rather about the feeling you get when entering a huge art supply store, touching all those brand new pencils and tubes

The Top Reasons for Manuscript RejectionOne of the things that the literary agency I work for does some weekends out of the year is teach seminars on query writing and the first 5 pages of manuscripts (which, basically just means the first page of the manuscript). The seminars last only a day or two, but aim to help writers improve their queries and start of their books so that they have a better chance of standing out in the ever-growing slush pile. Since I know many members of the literature community here aim to one day be published writers, I thought I would share our sheet of the top reasons for manuscript rejections. Please note: These are in no particular order.The Top Reasons for Manuscript Rejection2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Wrong genre Agents have guidelines for specific genres that they like to represent. Just like you and me, they have certain genres they love and certain genres they don't. Sometimes, it's not because of personal preference, but because they don't know the market for some books as well as other agents who are very passionate about

-EDIT---CONTEST!! - Fantasy Wonderland.---EDIT-----EDIT---CONTEST!! - Fantasy Wonderland.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
From now on, can people PLEASE put the title "Fantasy Wonderland" as their title or mention it in the description, if we don't see it, we'll decline. The reason for this is that some people just submit to the first open folder they see. Thank you.
Going with the theme, I've changed the name to Fantasy Wonderland which some of you member's have suggested. If you can title you're submission's as "Fantasy Wonderland", that'd be a great help
You may draw whatever Magical, mythical or any particular countries country's culture or mythologies of creatures.
As the title states, 'Wonderland', so don't just draw something on it's own, it has to be shown that it's having fun in whichever way you think that the creatures have fun.
As mentioned on the other post, the winner will be having all the point's that are donated within the 2 month time limit, a full feature spot in the journal, winning piece will go into the feature folder and a donated coloured sketch from our very own

Oh my Gods, it's a miracle!My sweet baby fishy! I lost him down the drain during a water change because I am stupid and forgot to put down the stopper. I basically panicked as I tried to save his life, breaking the stopper and cutting my hand in the process. And for two hours I cried and cried thinking I had murdered him. It was horrible. But then my dad woke up and I told him I broke the stopper and what had happened. Moments later I find the little queer ( Valentine ) swimming in a bucket under the sink. I might cry again I am so happy. I know, I am being dramatic over a fish but he is my baby and I'm just so happy he's alive and safe.Oh my Gods, it's a miracle!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tequila and I reignited our relationship as of last night. I have nothing against, you. You were just not enough. As evident by the three empty bottles in my sweater drawer and one in my ceiling. I welcome you to try again once I finish with tequila. Actually, I welcome you at any time. I'm all for threesomes.
