How to Commission an Artist
I've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there.  One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate.  Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists.  The simple fact of the matter is that it happens.
However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to find instructions on it as, say, how to draw anime eyes.  That's why I'm making this guide.
It should be noted that while I mention commissioning through other websites now and then, this is meant as to general guide, and all of the examples are from deviantart.com.  Also, this does not

The Art of Plagarism (art theft/brand discussion)
This is going to be one of those more thought-provoking journals, where I get to tie in real news articles to how the online community operates.  If you are able to read through this entire journal, mad props, because it's going to give you some mental floss to work with.  I always like starting up a good topic of conversation, so chime in with the comments. 
I stumbled across this article after sifting through my daily news rounds (i'm a junkie when it comes to it).

In the event you do not care to go through the entire article, I can summarize it:

DIGITAL ART IS NOT ART!!
For all my digital artists out there, do you ever get this? And for everyone else, are you one of the ones that agrees with this? I seem to see this a lot and I was finally pushed over the edge when one of my favorite artists, RyanOttley, posted on Twitter "What's worse, burning original art or drawing digitally?! Haha!". For those who know, Ryan has been doing his layouts digitally lately. Which I assume is why he asked that. It's the response from fans that got to me. Most of them replied saying that drawing digitally was WORSE than burning original art. Being primarily a digital artist as of late, I was a little offended at how many people don't consider digital art to be art.
I've gotten this multiple times, "This would look great as a real painting.". Uh.. So does it not look great as a digital painting? If I painted the exact same thing with oil paints and it looked exactly the same, how would it look better?! It'd look the same. The difference: I didn't make a mess and I di

TL;DR: I draw things and stuff for fun.




I'm primarily a self taught artist, and have been drawing seriously for the past 3 years (since 2014).

I enjoy painting artwork that can tell a story with some world building elements.

I took an interest in art and illustration when I was about 6, with Bob Ross as my first true inspiration at the age of 9. The only formal training I've had were a basic illustration and graphic design class as part of a 3D Modeling and Rendering degree. At the time, it was the only degree that was the closest thing to what I wanted to do, which is to create characters.

After completing my degree, I still found that my 2D illustration skill set was severely lacking. I refocused my efforts to improve them, and ended up loving it more than 3D.

It has been many years since I finished school, and I'm still learning new things. Being on Deviant Art has helped me improve and discover other artists with skills far above my own. Artists who have influenced me the most on Deviant Art are Stanley Lau (Artgerm), Gonzalo Ordóñez Arias (Genzoman), Landy Andria (Jiyu-Kaze), Kienan Lafferty (KNKL), Omar Dogan (Omar-Dogan), Paul Kwon (Zeronis) and Sakimichan. I do my best to learn from them and other artists and adopt their philosophies and sensibilities in order to continually grow and improve my own art. It is a never ending journey that I'm more than glad to be on.

Heya, I thought that a Super Nintendo themed art contest might pick your interest, if it does, have a look at what it is about:
