You're Invited To Try The New Sidebar

UPDATE: The opt-in period for the new sidebar has closed as of October 7th. Thank you to everyone who participated in this early opt-in period. The feedback we’ve received so far has been invaluable in helping us improve and optimize the sidebar. Please continue sharing your feedback! Moving forward, we’ll now be rolling out the new sidebar to a wider pool of deviants, so no more need to opt-in. Again, thanks so much to those who participated for helping us create a better DeviantArt experience! You’re invited to try a brand new sidebar that gives you quick access to some of your favorite features and groups! The Goal of The New Sidebar There are several ways to browse and consume content on DeviantArt, and with this update, our goal was to create a consistent experience across Browse (New and Popular), Search, Daily Deviations, Topics, Groups, and most importantly, deviants you watch. Bringing more attention to Groups was a big part of this update, and we have plenty more planned

****REGARDING COMMISSIONS!****:

Just a gently reminder I'm available for commissions, so if you have a project you think my work would be appropriate for, feel free to contact me. Here's some info concerning this:

1. Contract:

Probably the most important point. I've started using a contract form in order to guarantee that the deal is fair for both you and me. This means, in a nutshell, that I, as the illustrator, will not be able to simply drop a project, deliver whenever I feel like or make whatever changes I want. It also means that you, as the buyer, shall pay in set dates. Some parts of the contract are open for discussion, but most of it is pretty straightfoward and nuetral. That's why I prefer using it, and also why I won't simply work with you in case you choose not to use a legal document.

***You can preview the contract form here: drive.google.com/file/d/1sSGPE… ***

2. Fees:

I have tried working with fixed fees, but more often than not it leads to confusion rather than being a helpful tool. What a piece costs is ultimately variable. Therefore, I've assumed it as part of my job to give you a price that fits your request and can be fair for both you as a buyer and me as the illustrator.

Notes:
- For international commissions I use Paypal and charge in USD
- I usually ask for an advance deposit of 50% of the total fee, after which I will send you the first drafts. After all the work's done I will send you a low res version. Once your are happy with the image, I'll ask you to deposit the remaining 50%, after which I'll send you the full res version. You may also choose to pay the full installment at the beginning. This is all clarified in the contract form.

3. Just to clarify, I do not work for free. I hope you understand this is what I do, and my time, just like yours, is valuable and cannot be regained once lost. It is true that this is not just my occupation, but also what I like doing. Nevertheless, that does not mean I am willing to spend my spare time working for nothing, and I would not expect anyone else to do it. Note that this also goes to “exposure as payment”.

4. If you like what I do and wish to support me, but have no money or aren't looking to commission me at the moment, you can always share my work around, giving proper credit of course. That's quite helpful and I'd relly appreciate it.

5. If you have any questions about these points or any other, please send me a note or e-mail me at marco.gonzalez.l@hotmail.cl

Chile Burns (please read below)

"Repression is burning Chile" Chile, my country, is currently under a state of emergency, with curfews everyday, and the streets loaded with special forces and the military, fully armed -armoured vehicles included-. The government hasn't been able nor willing to listen to popular demands, which have arisen nationwide during the past week. People are scared, yes, but more than that, outraged. The protests have been peaceful, yet the government and pro-government parties keep on criminalising society through their discourse and media, instilling fear on people, trying to break unity by pulling different set ups, and calling it a war. Police forces have attacked protesters and pedestrians alike, using tear gas, buckshots, truncheons or even running over them with their vehicles. They've shot innocent people, and even homes. Yet our president insists on calling out violence, as if it wasn't something they're a part and cause of. Thanks for reading, and please, if you can, spread the
