I'll try my best to reply to everything as long as they aren't inappropriate or rude!! I'll put the relevant ones in the journal itself.

MBTea Art Book 2015 ReferalsTryouts will open up this Friday for those hoping to participate in the 2015 Melon Berry Tea, fan supported, Art book.MBTea Art Book 2015 Referals1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The fan supported art book is a donation book for artists!
Instead of the proceeds going to a nonprofit organization, artists have the chance to earn as much money as possible for themselves. It's a way to give back a little to your favorite artists, to show your love and support, and a chance for them to earn some extra funds to hopefully free up some time to allow them to create memorable pieces of work!
But first, the invitation round. Normally I go through people I know and keep track of and invite them however that is a very narrow band and not very fair.
Therefore if there is an artist you think deserves to take part in the fan supported art book then please mention them in the comments below.
- No you can't refer yourself
- You may only refer up to 5 people
- A high skill level is recommended but not required
- All styles are accepted and will be reflecte
Art and not giving upDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and not giving up1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As artists we are constantly self-aware and seek for improvement and support. But there are times when it feels like everything falls apart, when things go wrong and doubts overwhelm us.
But we have to stay strong and continue.
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
No one likes to fail. Yet, when it happens, we learn so much. For example – my first “inspiring” journal series where such a failure. But I kept going, as I have always had. As long as I can motivate, help and inspire others, through my journals or art, that’s what keeps me going. Also – things can go wrong all the time – the painting software could crash, ink can get accidentally spilled or It’s possible to unintentionally ruin the painting. It happens. Go through the struggle;

So many artists underpricing...It makes me really sad.So many artists underpricing...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When an artist you want to commission finally open their commissions back and all of their slots are taken in less than a minute.
And I'm sure all the slots would still be taken if the price was increased of x2-x10.
So many artists are still underpricing themselves. People make it a standard for art to sell for so cheap and whenever someone charge more than this standard, which is probably still underpriced, people complain.
By underpricing yourself, you are also contributing to keep the price standard of art low on this site. Charging low can be insulting to other artists, but also to yourself.
Please, don't ever feel like you need to underprice yourself, because of the fear of what other might think or say. You art is worth more than that. There will always be someone complaining, you cannot please everyone. Your time, the efforts, the skills you gained over years of hard work, is worth far way more than a few cents/points.
If you ever open your commissions an

(1100+ Pts)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have put a lot of heart and soul into writing my Mexico fanfiction "Legacy". Now, I want to put some art with the literature. However, my own ability to draw anything is rather constrained by time
The Task: Draw a cover for "Legacy"
- The basic idea is that if the story was a book/TV show/movie, what would the cover/promo poster look like?
- There are no hard and fast requirements, but the more of the characters/important symbols or scenes are included, the better your chances of winning
The Deadline: January 1st

The common misconceptionWhen giving workshops last weekend, I was confronted with something at least remarkable.The common misconception1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I had a random chat with a girl that apparently knew me from DeviantArt. We a friendly conversation about art such. It wasn't that strange, until she concluded her message with.
"It's nice talking to you. I always wanted to know what you were like. You know... since you draw so well"
And I was like... "Huh? What?"
Some people see me as a talented writer or artist, others (including myself) raise the bar even higher.
But regardless of what you see as skilled or not, I don't think there's such a thing as 'them' and 'us' in the art world. It's too small of a world. We're too alike. And I think most of us aren't exactly prone to living a celebrity lifestyle anyway. Bitches & bling don't match well with the usually quiet lifestyle an artist prefers.
When I started doing painting, I looked up to many of the lo
