Commissions+ (FULL)Updates!Commissions+ (FULL)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hi! Actually I have a lot of stuff to work on, but I've been getting a lot of commission inquiries so I'll be opening 2 slots for headshot commissions! Just the headshot for now, full paintings will be opening maybe in a month or two (or maybe never IDK). Please note me with the request form if interested, thank you!
Also current commissioners, please expect WIPs be sent out by this weekend, TY!
Thank you again! I will try to open more slots in the future!
Due to my schedule, commissions will be open whenever I feel like. Progress will also be slower than before. Please let me know if there is a need to negotiate a reasonable deadline. Commissioners will be notified if something goes wrong and delivery cannot be done on time.
I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone with an unreasonable request.
Painting slot: 0/1

"Those stock photos cost money to use. "Royalty free" doesn't mean "completely free", it means pay a one time fee (not for access to the site or a monthly subscription fee, for the individual photo) to use the photo as many times as possible.

1. Please link back to FantasyStock. :faq81:
2. Please send a link to your artwork in a note to me.
3. Please send a link to your print/commercial use or reproduction as soon it is up for sale at dA. I usually add your prints to my wishlist!
1. I ask for a link back in the description of each deviation that has been created with even one small element of my stockart. (That's what that faq link is doing up there; see above. It will tell you how to make links on dA.) If you showcase your work on another website, please add a link to my main page here at dA on the same web page where you display your art. I think that's fair.
2. If you used my stockart, I want to see it! Notes are usually the fastest way yo get my attention.

FYI - Through a rapist's eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in

1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.
They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid

i know what some of you may think here, "well, my skill level isn't going to win me anything here"
my friend, that is not the case in this event. ALL entries will be have the same amount of chance, the final winner is not based on how well the drawing or writing is done. the winner will be RANDOM. you are asked to do your best because you owe it to yourself for a good piece of work. The final piece will remain your own property, im just trying to get some activities going here. XD
you need to do one of the following to quality as an entry.
1. a drawing of a lamia in any media (traditional, digital, photo-manip, also welcome)
2. a short story involving a lamia. preferably no longer than 1 page.
there are a few versions of the lamia monster, what i am looking for is the one that is top half human, and lower half snake. now most of these are portrayed as female, but if you are up to it, feel free to make a male one.
also regarding the hair, you are free to make it snake hair or norma

passion into your profession. But there is a way of measuring your chances on being
able to get work and eventually sustain a living from it.
Accepting commissions or freelance for low payment won't help you. You can think any penny counts, but it will lower the worth of your work and damage the market.
How to measure that you are ready?
You probably have high goals, but they are usually not your first step. You must search out the clients who can be that first step. Often found in the card game industry, book cover illustrations and smaller game company's.
Look at the artwork shown by a company such as the card game company: Fantasy Flight games. Compare your skills with the average of their artworks. If it matches yours, you will have a chance. However, keep in mind that those artworks had been done in a limited timeframe, usually within 12 hour

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.

so I googled "キリ番":
and found out that キリ番 is actually a shorten version of「きりのいい番号」

Pixiv Fantasia VII [update!!][UPDATE 25/2]Pixiv Fantasia VII [update!!]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
arohaJ uploaded a teaser!!
IS ANYONE INTERESTED IN JOINING.
For those who aren't too sure what it is-
What is Pixiv Fantasia:
Pixiv Fantasia is a user-run fantasy-themed project organised on pixiv that happens yearly. It's run by arohaJ, and takes place over a period of around 8 weeks per event. Over these 8 weeks, pixiv users cram out art in possibly the greatest coordinated creative effort on the site ever and...well basically draw themselves silly. It's not just illustrations, either - people also create music and etc. for the project. Once the 8 weeks are over, though, it's over - no one or almost no one touches old content, so it's best to join early to make the most of the project.
There is no requirement to join, and there are actually a number of ways to participate (and more, if you can think of them). So yes that means no minimum art standard. It's a free-for-all.
Avoid getting ripped off by a client.As a freelancer most of your business takes place online, which makes it really easyAvoid getting ripped off by a client.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
for people to rip you off. How many times have we seen the following scenario's:
1- Someone offers a descent payment for your artwork but wants you to do an art-test first.
after the art-test you're being told you're not good enough. Later you find out that other people
got to do different art-test topics and also weren't good enough. The client clearly ripped people off to get free artwork.
2- Someone offers good money for your artwork. The sketch gets approved so you continue working. Right when it's done the total image suddenly becomes a great disappointment and the client ends up not paying you.
These were just 2 examples of situations that happen a lot to freelancers. There are many more like it.
