Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

Artist Alley for BeginnersHave you had a table at Artist Alley before? If you haven't I'm going to give you a list of suggestions for manning your table for the first time. These suggestions are not in any particular order.Artist Alley for Beginners5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Do not go overboard.
You may think your artwork and crafts are really great, but it always pays to be just a little bit cautious when having your first artist alley table. The reason for this is simple, you have to test your work in the consumer market. If you become really excited and buy 100 prints for your first convention and only 5 get sold... well you are out a lot of money. If you have many prints have small quantities printed, such as 5 - 10 prints and keep track of what prints sell this will be a good indicator for what prints are most popular.
2. Be reasonable on your prices.
If you are new to the art world you may think you can make a killing selling anime/manga prints. It can be tempting to want to charge $5, $10, $15 even $20 for one of your
Mayday for AmericaI don't post a lot of personal stuff, and I don't post anything controversial: politics, opinions, religion...anything that could spark an argument. I'm here to make stock and provide for the artistic community. But you know what? This is about something else. This is about saving America.Mayday for America1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's funny, I had thought a few months ago of doing this very thing, but who am I? I'm nobody. This guy is a professor of law at Harvard. My plea would have branded me as a crackpot and dismissed, or worse, ruined any credibility I may have had for future ventures.
For those of you who may not be aware, or who don't live in America, we are sinking. Fast. I have been personally privy to how bad things have gotten, and we are still barely scraping a living out of the military's begrudging obligations to my husband, for whom he saw and did horrible things. His only reward was to have his mind and body ruined, and in order to get any sort of help, we are required to navigate the endlessly looping systems

Introduction to Polymer ClayPolymer clay is a modeling compound consisting mainly of polymer polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and plasticizes to make it pliable. As you can see it's easy to define polymer clay, but there's no possible way to describe all the variety of things that can be achieved with it.Introduction to Polymer Clay3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Creativity is Cool Contest--less than one week!!!The Contest is over!!!! Now the judging shall begin!!!!!Creativity is Cool Contest--less than one week!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We have decided our theme will be Creativity is Cool
This contest is somewhat different: We will provide you with different stock images: Four of people, four of interior shots, four of outdoor/landscape images and four 'unusual or 'difficult' images. Now your mission is to choose one (or more) of those and get as creative with it as possible! You can use any part of the stock images in any way you like--so long as it's recognizable as having come from the image. Imagine all the different possibles!
Here pure skill is not as important- A perfect portrait might get not as much recognition as a really creative piece with the same stock base.

Fantastic Stock And Where To Find it - Feature 32 I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock And Where To Find it - Feature 321 year ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.
