The lessons we learn

Curled stubby fingers around your impeccable pristine work shoes My head bowed gaze averted from carmine smearing a rumpled white collar Low on hands and scraped knees I curve a dusty smile in mock defiance We are fragmented parts masquerading as whole

Art And Money

I received a great question from a deviant recently regarding an important and not visible enough topic; art & money. With their permission, I'm sharing it and my answer here in the hopes it's of value. Hi ekud! My name is *****. I see you are an experienced freelance Illustrator and Art Director also from Australia, and I am working towards a career similar to yours. As an aspiring full-time digital illustrator I hope you don't mind if I kindly ask your advice on a work offer I have recently received...? With my experience lying almost exclusively in single piece commission works I am unsure of whether to accept or decline and unfortunately live in a location with no access to experienced artists to ask their opinion. Someone I trust has offered 50% of profits made from a project they would write (and I would Illustrate) for them for 'free'. I'd love to work on it for experience and practise but don't know if one would suggest against working before payment, or suggest spending

26 Questions (Tagged)

Tagged by my dear @Mai22Hikari and taken some questions from @HaruRyomaru86 Who are you and what do you do? I'm Kikka, I'm a portuguese self-taught and inconsistent artist XD I always drew traditionally as far as I remember but only began to draw more "seriously" in 2016. I consider myself more a traditional artist because my basis are traditional, though I've started to draw digitally in 2017/2018 so right now I do some mixed media art. What made you pick your DA Username? It's the username I created 10 (or maybe more) years ago. I loved K's back then so I changed the consonants of my first name with K's and added one more (just to be different from other Kika's XD) and I shortened my last name to "Ribas" but for some reason it felt weird (Kikka Ribas haha) so I changed to Kibaz instead. And back then I thought we always have to mention "The" before a name in English so.. there you go.. TheKikkaKibaz Are you Right or Left Handed?   Right handed  Current Celebrity Crush ?
