Nowadays you can get a job in the 3D field in many different ways with many different contracts, full time, part time, casual, etc work out there t accommodate your interests. The amazing thing is studios/jobs are opening up all across the globe opening the doors for 3D artists in many different countries to make a living.

My first DDWoke up this morning to find this in my inboxMy first DD2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
... and a whole lot of messages from people that congratulated me
Turns out I got a Daily Deviation, which is absolutely epic, because I never had one before
Actually the DD thing is quite a funny story for me.
Ever since I joined this website and DD's were still featured on the frontpage and DA's footer, I'd love to have one. It is (or used to be) a feature on a very busy part on a very busy website... and then there was that fancy "this art got an DD once" block under your artwork. Who wouldn't love to have something like that? But as most people know DD's are handpicked and it's nearly impossible to get there unless you have a certain level of art or do something that somehow resonated with DeviantArt as a community. Over the years I've suggest

Get featured! [feature for points]After some while of experimentation, I'm glad to announce that the feature thing is there to stay.Get featured! [feature for points]1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Happy holidaysHey guys.Happy holidays1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It's been quite a while since the last update.
As I've gotten quite the number of concerned messages over time, I wanted to let you know that I'm still alive. I'm doing okay, as far as my current health situation allows it.
As far as my creative process goes, I'm doing great. I've been experimenting with various art types and painting styles, and it feels like that alone already allows for more freedom of expression.
It might probably be another while before I regain the time, confidence, and (mainly) energy to frequently update, reply, and share with the world again. But I hope you'll be able to bear with that.
To those that sticked around for so long...
I wish you happy holidays and all the best for 2015.
May your artistic ability's (and all life quality's) far exceed those of 2014.

Myth: Respect Must be EarnedEveryone goes blind...Myth: Respect Must be Earned3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Yes, just like the age-old adage goes, "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." Think about it: if you never give respect but expect to receive it, and every other person on the planet thinks the same thing, who is ever going to be respected? If your default setting is to treat me with disrespect or to simply ignore me until I impress you enough to take notice of me, you really aren't worth my time. And I would think that if someone treated you in the same way that they would not be worth your time either. Our default setting should always be to respect first. Even if you don't think all people deserve respect like I do, you still should understand that stating that YOU don't have to earn respect but everyone else does is HYPOCRITICAL and SELFISH.
Respect has no charge associated with it. There are no tricks that one must perform to get respect. It isn't magical. It isn't a fairy tale. It does not require a remote co

Behind the pretty faceI had such a pretty face.Behind the pretty face2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Or at least, that was what they told me when I posted my picture.
I have to admit that I rarely post my face online. Not so much for privacy's sake (I don't have the illusion of privacy, with the NSA around) but more because I've never liked taking pictures pictures. Back in the time, I was probably one of the few young girls that wasn't fond on making selfies, and therefore often had ID's showing either my back, my drawing equipment, or just a drawn image of me. The reason I posted a picture, was because it was for a good cause. An issue that I wanted to raise awareness for myself. The many people that had already posted their real pictures, encouraged me as well. That internet isn't all about faking who you are, but about the 'real' you as well. No matter who you are. Boy or girl, pretty or ugly.

Development of both products has never stopped and will continue in an ongoing manner moving forward.

You now have the option to include/exclude your journal from the Journal Portal, and from your Journal Tab's new "Featured" section.
The Journal Portal in the footer of deviantART now pulls from the Journals category but excludes all "Personal" posts. This means, you must categorize your Journal on submission for it to even qualify to appear in the footer of dA. This has substantially increased the quality of posts that appear there.

Patreon and being an artistHello dear dA-friends,Patreon and being an artist7 months ago in Personal More Like This
some of my friends asked me if I wanted to do a patreon campaign to get my supporters the chance to support my art. I must say, I am not sure at all about that. Sure, it would be nice, to be able to be as creative as I would like to be, book models or locations that I would love to work with or invest more in hardware. But here comes the but: I am not sure how I feel about the whole patreon concept. The idea just feels strange.
What do you think? Would you support an artist that you like? Or how would you as artist feel like if you had people supporting you financially?
I've always that I wouldn't want photography to be my job because I wouldn't want to change my art to make money and I still think that way. That is why I have another "dayjob" while photography remains my passion. But I must admit that the idea of being able to spend more money on the creation of my art is very tempting ...
So these were my thoughts... what are your's?

Drell female officially revealed - Irikah Krios in ME Foundation
Do you remember lieutenant Abrudas from ME:Evolution comic? Yes, that was the first Turian female even shown during the cycle of Mass Effect trilogy.
And now a preview of a new issue of ME: Foundation #12 has appeared... and inside... First official appearance of a Drell Female.
This time they showed Thane's wife that is known to the players through Thane's tales about his past.
So for the time being I'll upload the screens from the preview:
What do you think?
Abrudas was shown several months before Omeda DLC and the official design for Turian females didn't stray far from the comic version.
Maybe that means ME4 will have Drell Females. Who knows. If so, they probably will be similar to Irikah.

While the majority of the people reacted very positively towards the tips & tricks I shared, there were also some very hostile reactions that ideas like that would encourage you to be something you're not.
I'd like to elaborate on that.
First of all, these tips are basically science.
I didn't just randomly think them up. Most of the points are things that have been proven through marketing- and usability research. This whole marketing thing, however, is a field many artists are for some reason unfamiliar with, so people don't take it into account when wondering why they don't get the exposure they think they deserve. They often undeserving think it's their art that sucks, and that's a shame.
The reason I post this stuff, is mainly because I want people to know.

Rumo - Jetzt auch eine GedichtformWarnung: Dieser Journal Entry ist nicht nur leicht bescheuert, sondern hat definitiv auch den humorvollen Beigeschmack von gesundem Größenwahnsinn.Rumo - Jetzt auch eine Gedichtform1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Eventuell ist es ein paar von euch ja bereits aufgefallen, dass ich sehr gerne in einer bestimmten Form dichte.
Diese Form nenne ich nun 'Rumo', da ich keinen 'offiziellen' Namen für diese Form gefunden habe.
So wie es Sonette, Haikus, Stanzen und Oden gibt, gibt es also jetzt auch 'Rumos'.
Aber was ist ein 'Rumo' genau?
Eine Gedichtform, die sich folgendermaßen zusammensetzt:
-Vier Strophen, die aus jeweils zwei Versen bestehen
-Die Verse sind im Paarreim gereimt
-Die Verse halten einen streng alternierenden vierhebeigen Jambus ein
-Die Kadenzen sind zur Hälfte männlich und zur Hälfte Weiblich.
-Die Verse neigen oft zum Reihungsstil.
Ich finde diese Gedichtform sehr schön, da man gewzungen ist, seine Aussage auf recht wenig Raum auszudrücken.
Die Verse sind kurz und aussagekr&
