Season EnderYellow~! Its been awhile since I made a write-up for my gallery (more than a year?).Season Ender2 years ago in Personal More Like This
2013 has been a very busy year for me because of work and freelance (mobile app development) --- causing me to hibernate in photography for more than seven (7) months.
Aside from work, my favourite lens (Tokina UWA) got himself some fungus and my EOS 1000D got injured (like hot-shoe problem and sensor dust) --- as a result, I end up rejecting every invitation because I don't have any gear to use on --- and it took me awhile to send it to a server centre because of tight schedule
On a brighter side, I think this incident is nice because I still have some awful backlogs to catch-up with from 2012.
PICKING A NEW CAMERA
SO FAST FORWARD: Finally I got myself an editing device (a Macbook Pro for obvious reasons) and a new camera (Fuji X100S) because of my freelance.
Lots of my friends are asking me :
"Why pick a non-interchangeable camera…?"
"Why pick X100S..?"

"The Spanish-American War was a conflict between Spain and the United States. It came as a result of American intervention during Cuba's rebellion against Spain. America did not approve of Spain's methods to crush the revolution, and even back then felt like to police of the world. So one day they went up to Spain and said "Oh mai god. Stahp.". Spain was like "LOL NOPE" and continued to treat the Cuban people like shit. Then they decided to blow up a US ship because YOLO. America sat pissed off as Spain proceeded to do a lot of dick-waving, which included calling Americans nasty toads and President McKinley a weak little pushover. However, it was a bright day for American political cartoonists. Anyway, America finally got fed up and said "YOU WANT TO GO TO WAR?! FINE, COME AT ME BRO!" and Spain was like "We don't want a war. We just want you to fuck off... but we'd still totally beat you. I mean, i
Why it's so important to unite as artists.We are with many though yet we are with few. We're all divided over little subgroups such as, fantasy illustrators, concept artists, comic book pencilers, photomanipers, techartists, anime drawers, realism sketchers etc. You might even find your place at multiple sections.Why it's so important to unite as artists.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I found that the biggest united groups on Deviant Art are mostly evolved around fan art, such as Sonic, or My little pony.
Observations aside, I think the good thing about those groups is that they serve for companionship. Being an artist all by yourself with no one to share/talk about/discuss your work with can feel rather lonely. And that lonely feeling is not encouraging at all. Most of us keep a lot of things taboo as well, like techniques or rates. If we were more openly with these the changes of being underpaid or missing out on a job because someone else does it for hardly any money at all will grow slimmer. People should know what they are worth and not be afraid to ask for it.

What do do as an artist in training.There are many ways to Rome they say. But I find most aspiring artists lost and asking me for guidanceWhat do do as an artist in training.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
and this is what I tell them.
Find out for yourself what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of bookcovers, or card games.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must find the best work on the market in those fields.
Find out what makes the best art of your favorite field the best art. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.
The most basic study aims are the following:
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?
The book Color and Light by James Gurney will give you a lot of insight.
How do you paint shapes? How do you light them the right way?
You will learn a l

I want to make a group exclusively where worldbuilders (especially fantasy/scifi) could have their own separate ‘world’ folder.

Initially, I’d prefer to start it out more exclusively, inviting people who have a lot to show, at least have backstories for some characters and know roughly where it’s all headed. Plus for having published a story, or being in progress of publication and so forth.
I could perhaps organize some weekly/monthly personal challenges to help people get motivated. Aka…write down brief history of some of your kingdoms, or..characters relations to each other.
As well as supplying interesting, useful videos, documentaries and similar cur

I questioned myself why it could happen? Why works so wonderful and people so talented can be unknown in this community?How to Become Popular on Deviantart6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So, I decided to write this article.
For it, I sent this three questions for some pop artists:
- What's the secret to become popular?
- Why do some people become popular so fast, doing ordinary art, and others which do amazing art cant be popular?
- Is there any trick to become popular? Like watching a lot of people, faving everything you can, posting a lot of journals or promoting contests?
Some of them answered me so kindly and fast, others answered me in a way kinda rude and others didnt answer..
By now, I have some ideas, some quotes and I want to show you all information I got about it.
So, lets start:
First, I must say there are several ways to become popular. To make this article, I did a

So you want to do commissions?A basic guide to setting up commissionsSo you want to do commissions?4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When it comes to commissioning, there is so much that needs to be decided, arranged and thought of that it can all appear a bit daunting at first.
However: when following a couple of basic guidelines, setting up commissions really is not as hard as you think!
If you find the article informative, please it.
First things first
So you have decided you want to start doing commissions. That's great!
The first thing to do is to determine what you want to offer.
Do you want to offer drawings, or designs?
Will you be coding journal-skins for people, or will you be pixeling?
Take a look through your gallery and try to determine what you do best and what you like to do the most.
Because that will most likely be what you'll be offering.
Stick to what you're good at.
Don't promise what you can't deliver when someone is paying you for it.
