|I'm not usually make dreamscape, but I love to got comment for this! As well as my other arts|
I'm just a teeneger, who sometimes spends his free time to making what in his minds.
Every comment means a lot for me, especially the critique one!
Fella is back in action!Fella is DA's mascot and has been the host of his own group for a long time. The group has been through a number of incarnations under the loving and watchful eye of various admins over the years, but had been on hiatus for quite a while. I'm excited to announce that fella is now back in action, reinvented, and ready to help new deviants find their creative community.
There are already lots of wonderful groups and projects on DA that facilitate sharing your art through their galleries and collections, provide educational and informative content, and host and promote community events. To avoid reinventing the wheel or overlapping with awesome things that already exist, fella's new incarnation is as a welcoming resource, aiming to direct new DA members to helpful and fun places and things around the site.
If you'd like to include fella in your welcome messages to new deviants, you can link to the journal below, or just to the group's front page.
How to Get CommissionsOkay so william5678 asked me how I get commissions and I gotta say that is a good idea for a journal entry!
Artists who hoard knowledge for fear of competition make me really mad. I dont know any personally, but every once in awhile they pop up on forums and it's gross. Everyone should have the tools to succeed, and if someone works harder than me they deserve the fruits of their labor
Anyways I get a lot of my commissions through the amino app "Furry amino"
The reason I use it is that there isn't much in the way of social standing. For example: if you have a furaffinity or deviantart account you need at least some audience to begin sustaining yourself. Furry amino is more like "Followers mean nothing and everyone is in a giant cesspit at the same time", no matter how long you've been there you can ALWAYS reach people.
Ok as far as deciding the price for your art, yur on your own. What I did was set up a poll on the amino asking how much my art was wor
10 Things I Am Grateful For
Lately, we have dealt with some negativity here on DA. If you know me, you know I am not a big fan of that. So, to counteract that, I want to share 10 things I am grateful for right here on DA! Positivity boost, here we go!
It goes without saying that the community is one of my most important motivators on DA. People in it are supportive, sweet and always ready for a chat, to help or to just be there, something I very recently saw happen all at once when I shared some personal things!The Tutorials
A lot of people work tirelessly to share their knowledge through tutorials. I think those people are absolute angels, because they are vital in our development!
The CV Team
It goes without saying that the volunteers on DA put a lot of heart, thought and work into what they do and say, and we have to remember: they do it all for us!The inspiration
Technical Critique is Not the Only FeedbackFeedback Weekend
While technical critique is all kinds of awesome when it's wanted, it is absolutely, definitely NOT the only kind of feedback that's valid or that an artist will appreciate! If you're nervous about leaving comments on people's art because you're worried your feedback won't be in-depth enough or technical enough, please don't feel that way. There are ways to respond to an artist's work that have nothing at all to do with technical critique, and that's what we're going to talk about today.
Before we get into the main body of the article, I'd like to make one thing really clear. It's very important and it underpins everything else in the article. Ready?
Not everyone wants critique and this is a perfectly valid choice. There are a million and one possible reasons why someone may not be seeking critique on some or all of the work they upload to DA. Even if you don't know their reasons, even if they haven't stated them, even if they
Giving Feedback: How do I do that?Feedback Weekend
This is Yuukon and B0nkers and we have combined forces for Feedback Weekend!
Hello and Welcome to Bonks’ and Yuu’s Guide to Giving Feedback!
It’s so wonderful that you’re here, and we hope this article will be useful for you. Should you have any questions when you have reached the end, feel free to ask them! We’ll happily answer them for you.
Let’s first start off with some terminologies. There are a lot of different terms when it comes to giving feedback, and a first step to being able to give some is understanding what all these words mean.
When someone requests feedback it usually means they are seeking for critique and not criticism. There is a vast difference between the two so let’s find out what they are before we jump into how to give sound feedback.
Critique is a critical review, discussion or commentary of a specified topic.
Criticism is to judge, to find faults with
The Problem of Fan Art: Part OneI suppose I've been musing over this for a long time, and since I have released my first big piece of "real" work, I've found myself reading more about the phenomenon of "toxic fandoms."
That's not really what I'm going to talk about, though, even though I think it's a very obvious element to consider. It plays its part in the Problem of Fan Art.
And personal disclaimer: it's not like I've never done fanart myself. I obviously enjoy the aspect of fanart that is creative and expressive, and acts like the proper machine of artistic joie de vivre #notallfanart. But that allows me to move into my introduction: artists do great fanart; fanartists will never be artists.
Is it 'Art'?
Well, I suppose it was at some point, in the hands of the original creator or the creative team. But is fanart 'art'? After all, Roger Ebe
Stock sites, tutorials and Photomanip groupsExamples of good stock sites
The following list is divided into several subsections, paid and free stocks, and attribution required or not required.***
What does attribution mean exactly? It basically says that you're obliged to credit the stock provider whenever you use their stock in your work.
Stocks for purchase
Stock in a nutshell Hi there, good to meet you!
You're probably here because you're beginning to work on a photo-manipulation and want to use some stock images. You may have heard terms like legitimate stock thrown around, but not explained; maybe someone declined accepting your work into their group because of lack of proper credits.
We, as in the team of CRPhotomanipulation, decided to compile a bunch of suggestions and advice that will help you navigate the murky waters of all the most common problems you might encounter in your budding career as a photo manipulation artist.
If you're new or just confused, you're in a good place.
Longer chapters will also have a tl;dr section at the bottom for those who don't like to read a lot. Though, you know, reading it in full could be fun.

Upcoming Site Changes and Your Involvement
About a year and a half ago, we posted a journal discussing how DeviantArt’s acquisition would grant us the resources to make many positive changes for the site. Thus far, a lot of such improvements haven’t been entirely obvious — like the many new hires across all departments (we've more than doubled our staff!) or upgrades to the tools we use behind-the-scenes. All of this was done in order to bring you big-ticket changes, including a much-improved and redesigned site.
We've approached the redesign with a lot of consideration, which is why it’s been in development for so long. Not only do there continue to be lengthy internal conversations discussing every piece and every feature in explicit detail, but we
