Darkroom Gallery InfoWhile the majority of Photography galleries on dA are subject-based, Darkroom is technique-based. Photographs using Darkroom techniques are generally accepted in the other photography galleries too, but if you wish to categorise your Darkroom photography submission based on how it was created, then Photography > Darkroom is here to allow you to do that.Darkroom Gallery Info2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

"Sam Dead" from "The League of Elder"
Currently I find myself in a phase of making advanced use of colors in my work to enhance depth, mood and to underline certain values.
While doing so, I found a necessity to share this knowledge and insights in some kind of a reference. There are practical tips for everyday use, this post is useful for traditional artists as well.
When working in a professional environment there is rarely the time to go out and do plein-air paintings or studies, this is something artists have to do in their spare time, to form the foundations and understanding of perception of our environment. On the other hand it is extremely important to see processed works as well, to see the differences and to learn from these observations.
Basically, all knowledge artists have, is built upon passion and is acquired through personal experience, museum-visits, observation and anatomical studies have to be done

Where to sell your art:iconAngelaLeonetti: has started a group :iconmyjunglestudios: which is a place to share information about selling artwork -Where to sell your art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I have been selling my art for years on POD sites - POD sites are Print On Demand - which means that as an artist all I have to do is design something up load it and when a customer finds it - either through a web search, Facebook, or directly from my own marketing activities, they place an order and the product is then printed and shipped to the customer - all I have to do is collect a check. Now depending on which site it is the checks come once a month, quarterly or only when I make a certain amount of money usually over $25.00 (for the purpose of this I am using US dollars - since I am in the US).
DA is a POD site - when someone orders a print of an artists work they print it and send the artist the check. Depending on how active the artist wants to be in marketing their own work will determine how much money they will make. Using key

Artist Alley First-Timer? What You Need to Know!
A little advice after my time at the artist alley.
An original article by Scar23
Artist Alley: My First Time!
Many of us have been to some form of comic or anime convention and traveled through the artist alley. The first time I ever went to a convention was WonderCon in San Francisco, California, and the first place I stopped was at the artist alley. I remember being so surprised that there was actually a place completely devoted to artists. After browsing through the artist alley and meeting some of the artists, I thought to myself, “One day, you’ll be here, too.” About 5 years later, I was coerced into getting my first artist alley table at Sac-Con in Sacramento, California on March 6th, 2011.
Preparing to have an artist alley table was one of the most stressful t

7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better ArtistPractice, practice, practice. Gah.7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better Artist2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

On Hacking and Tracing (hiding on DA)On Hacking and Tracing (hiding on DA)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
FOR ANYONE WHO'S READING THIS A BIT LATE
This all happened about five to six months ago. Obsessing about this would be just silly, on either side. If you managed to find your way here by now and would still like to know what happened, I'll give you a quick summary.
There USED to be a BHB journal explaining everything that happened , but DA recently banned a bunch of groups for whatever fucking reason. Anyways, it turned out that Rai (Nincianda) was Kas all along and wasn't actually 13 and had been banned from DA I believe at least 10 times already? Anyways, she was caught and flipped the fuck out. Aisha was caught tracing and left DA forever, but she still uses tumblr.
Nincianda ended up being someone who drew badly but found out people thought it was cute for a 12/13 year old. She also ran around telling people crazy stories about how she was abused and other shit, but when

3. Are you single or taken?
Its complicated. Mink and I were in love, but I may or may not have murdered her entire family, herself included - IN ANY CASE details aside, we're over. I'm completely over her. And also dating her ex's niece against her will. Ahem. Next question. I have...er...king things to do..yes. A great many kingly duties. Can't be caught chatting about my love life.

What to Work On... Part One: AnatomyI glanced at roughly 20-30 rejected galleries. And I started to notice a trend. There was a deficiency in knowledge of anatomy. People think they can cheat it, people think they can use coloring skills to hide it. But the problem is, that when you attempt to cheat anatomy, the only way you can do so reliably is to actually KNOW what you're cheating. And hiding it, well, when you're submitting for a job, the first thing the bosses will note is hands and feet. How well do you draw them? How well do you understand them? This is no joke. Hands and feet are the dead giveaway.What to Work On... Part One: Anatomy6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now the problem is, how does one go about learning anatomy? Nothing out there will make up for taking an actual life drawing class, but having some good "teachers" via books and sometimes videos and guides is very useful... There are tons of really bad books on anatomy. But there are some

Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.
