This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
“How do you find your art style?” is a question that I get on a daily basis. Especially when you’re a beginner, everything can seem super complicated and you might be confused where to start off exactly. Should you copy images, should you learn anatomy or should you perhaps just draw with a pencil?
A lot of people recommend that you start by replicating other artists. Although that can be a great learning technique, for the beginner artist, this might hurt them more than actually helping them. When you don’t have a good foundation, trying to jump directly into other people’s styles can only confuse you even more. So how do you find your style exactly then?
It’s all in knowing what you should be learning next. Having the proper plan and the awareness as to where you are right now in your art journey, are simply the two greatest things that can get you better. Executing on the wrong things, will not only not help you proceed forward but it might actually pull you backwards. Awareness and Planning are key. ️
If you’re interested, I talk about this and lot more in my new vlog. I also share some of my experiences that I’ve gained in the past 6 years thru my art journey. You can watch it on my Youtube channel, watch it below or click here: youtu.be/4b3so8lgM2E
Of course, I curse a lot and act like an idiot for 8 minutes straight, so don’t expect any sort of real wisdom or clarity out of me lol. I’m more into entertainment, but ey, if you learn a thing or two, it’s a bonus. Thanks and hope you enjoy! <3
