Artist Alley 101: Things to Consider/ResourcesHello everyone! Welcome to the 4th and final part of my Artist Alley tutorial!Artist Alley 101: Things to Consider/Resources2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is meant to be a good start for those who have never been a part of an artist alley before, as well as a nice refresher to those of you who are veterans of alleys everywhere! I will try to be as detailed as possible, but make the information easy to reference and read through!
Hope you enjoy, and feedback is definitely appreciated! Let me know your thoughts, reactions, some of your own alley stories, as well as if you have any suggestions to add to this tutorial! I definitely haven't thought of everything, so if you had new ideas to share, I'd love to hear them!

Exposure, Getting Better, & Having the ChopsEXPOSURE & GETTING BETTER AT WHAT YOU DOExposure, Getting Better, & Having the Chops3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm only going off of my own personal experiences talking about these few things. (And I'm not specifically talking about ONLY dA here.) So take it with as many grains of salt as you can.
I've recently been asked questions like "How do I get people to see my work?", "Why am I not receiving commission inquiries?", "Why isn't anyone following my work?", "What can I do to get better?". Often, and I answered it before, the answer is as simple as this:
Create, as in, DRAW. PAINT. RENDER. SCULPT. You have to do develop a tolerance (or the obvious definition: LOVE) for creating if you want exposure and to get better. You have to LOVE the drawing or illustration that you HATE how it came out in the end. You have to ask yourself after every piece, what could I have done to do that differently. And you have to do this frequently.
Some folks come on the scene, post once or twice a week, and expect an audience to flock yo

New front page system?Honestly I don't know how people will respond to this? Negative or positive? I don't know, all I know is I have to say it.New front page system?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have already made a poll about it and it seems the majority weren't even aware there was a new system, most people actually thought it was a bug...says a lot about it already. Anyway... I have sent and inquiry and I can now officially confirm DA is running a new front page system. Let me explain what it basically does. The 'popular page' called so because popular works are featured there has changed. The new system is designed to give a leg up to more 'undiscovered artists'. Basically? the system no longer works according to favourites like the old system did. More obscure categories are granted priority over more popular ones e.g Fanart-anime manga- movies TV would be replaced by a image with a lower fav count from Fanart-digital-vector. Before I get lynched by people accusing me of being annoyed/jealous because my own work is no longer featured on the front pag

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
Christmas Cheer 2014 Contest - 3 Weeks LeftLast year our Christmas Cheer contest had a great turnout, and looking back, I wished we could have given more prizes! So this year, rather than trying to grant a bunch of wishes off the list and use up all of the group's funds. We are upping the prizes and amount of winners for the contest.Christmas Cheer 2014 Contest - 3 Weeks Left4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Update: We need one more entry in the Artisan Crafts category before the contest ends for a winner to be proclaimed. (We do know however that a few people are still working on thier gifts, I am just counting the pieces that have been submitted already)
What You Need to Do
Make a gift for someone you know, this could be a family member, a friend (in real life, or perhaps an online friend, teachers, anyone at all!)
We want you to challenge yourself as an artist. Go farther and harder than you have before, you've got plenty of time, so plan it out well!
You can only participate in one category, and don't forget to mention in the description of your deviation that it is a contest entry
