Project Educate: Fight Artist's/Writer's BlockArtist/Writer's block is the worst nightmare for writers and artists! Because of this, many artists and writers quit! Writer's/Artist's block is usually only temporary, but it can be long too! Here are some ways to fight writer's/artist's block!Project Educate: Fight Artist's/Writer's Block1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Find a place or situation that inspires you:
Yes, you've all probably heard this a lot of times, but it's true. Finding places that you like can inspire you to do more art/writing! That place doesn't have to be quiet, it can be a huge city bursting with life and sound! Places won't only inspire you, but so will situations. Taking a walk around your city or even you neighborhood can inspire you. Try going to special events that take places. See how people interact! Just like a place, these situations don't have to be happy or very community-like. Sometimes bad situations can inspire artist's/writer's to express their feelings through art or writing.
Pull up old ideas:
Artist's/Writer's usually throw the majorit

Bump Up Your ColorWorking with color can be difficult no matter what medium you choose, but it can be especially daunting for traditional artists. Learning how to mix your own colors is equally as important as learning how to apply them to your work.Bump Up Your Color1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
1. No matter what your art teacher says, YOU CAN use black and white
You've all probably heard that at one point: don't use black, black is bad (or white is bad). There is nothing inherently badabout using either color. The real caution should be in not using them exclusively in lightening or darkening a color. Both colors are very strong and can overwhelm the saturation of whatever they are mixed with. Rather than omit black and white from your palette, explore the range they can have when mixed with other colors.
2. Don't buy "flesh colored" pigments
You know that peachy tinted stuff? Don't use it. Pre-mixed pigments with white in them tend to be very chalky and unnatural looking, plus, it

PE: Presentation mattersPresentation mattersPE: Presentation matters2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
It's not just the artwork that tells you something about it's creator - on the internet, the way you present it is at least equally as important. Your painting can be a masterpiece, hanged in a local gallery, but as long as you post a blurry, badly cropped picture named "1564873" along with "..." in an artist's description, nobody will ever bother visiting your gallery. Creating a nice, representative profile page and setting a certain visual quality standard takes extra time and effort, but if you really care for your work (even if it's just a hobby), you should treat it with some respect.
I've already written a related article called The power of context that tried to explain how to place your work in a context in order to better connect with your audience, this one is focused

Found my Japanese friend missing for 10 yearsOk, Ryght, so, around 10 years ago I had a Japanese friend back in High School. He was over as an exchange student for a few months. When he arRyved, we anime lovers kinda heard the news and wanted to check him out.. cos me and my friends were kinda obsessed with Japanese stuff. Somtimes we would even speak gibberish Japanese to be more cool. So anyway I heard about this Japanese fella called Tomoo, he was a year below us and I really wanted to meet him but had no idea how... I have never made friends with a Japanese person before and was kinda nervous, so I just kinda brushed it off. Then one day.. my friend Ming somehow made friends with him and introduced Tomoo to me. I was shaking.. I was sweating.. I didn't know whether I should shake his hands or high 5 or hug or what... At the end I chose to bow, well thats what Japanese do right? So I bowed, I remember bowing and felt stupid after. IreallyhadnoideahowtogreetpeopleandIstilldon't.

How To Sell Your Original PaintingsHow To Sell Your Original PaintingsHow To Sell Your Original Paintings1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In this article I will be discussing how to sell your original paintings. If your a artist you know how intimidating this can be when you've decided to venture into sales. It may even leave you with doubts about your own work, lower your confidence as a artist, and a bit fearful. Well have no fear! I have some tips from personal experience, as well as online references and advice from fellow artists that will help with your sales.
The First Step
Before we get into 'the meat' of things your very first step is Believe in yourself. Be confident about the accomplishments you've made. If your contemplating selling anything then you have to know you're good at what you do. Let that be your mantra as an artist. Understand that how you've acquired your skills, what you choose to paint, what your art looks like, and how

YOU ARE AMAZING! I can't express it better that this.
You helped me lots understanding I can do it and that I should focus on one goal at a time. Some of you suggested me to get a Part-time job, but at the moment I'm working full-time on 3 comics and 2 profit artbooks and I don't have time to focus on other things or to move my ass and get another job, due to my tight scheduling. It may take a lot of time to see results and money from these projects but I'll try my best to keep calm and stay positive.
