Marketing Materials For Artists
EDIT: Well butter my biscuits, some of my gifs disappeared into the interwebs. I'll remedy this soon! It’s no secret that us artists aren’t great at selling ourselves. The creative process is so much work it’s easy to assume that your work will be able to sell itself. Sometimes it can, but that’s not usually the case. Even if you aren’t interested in going commercial with your career (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with going that route), it is important have professional materials to present to clients, employers and galleries. If you aren’t interested in being “full time” with selling y
Polymer Clay: What is it? and who is using it?
It seems there has been a recent explosion in DA users who are now using polymer clay as a medium for their deviations. To help out curious users who might be interested in what this medium is, how it works, or where they can get it I thought a NEWS article should be made. I shall also showcase some deviations made with polymer clay. The data below is compiled from HanaClayWorks (https://www.deviantart.com/hanaclayworks) polymer clay FAQ and my own FAQ :bulletred: What is polymer clay? -Polymer clay is actually not clay at all. It is a form of plastic. (Specifically fine particles of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) suspended in plasticizer) The only reason it is called "clay" is beca
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

Hi everyone!

Here we are with my second collection of featured artworks!
They are all so amazing and inspiring... a few are from the thumb forum and the others are suggested by my watchers or just chosen by me.  
That's because more than creating images by myself, I love to stare at others' works: I always end up daydreaming as a result and that's why I want to share my dream with you! Show some love to these amazing artists and enjoy the collection! :blowkiss:

Featured works :heart:

Drink Me by mallettepagan0 The Creator's GameRain splashed at the wide window. Lightning flashed, brightening up the office, showing the silhouette of a man. Footsteps soon followed, indicated only by the slight vibrations in the floor, since the raging storm drowned out all noise.
Another flash. This time, the man was much closer, and appeared to be heading toward the door. He may have seen me in the flash, though I doubt he could make out my features any more than I could see his, and instead he merely knew that the safest option was to escape from the mysterious intruder while he still had the chance.
The door opened, and light trickled into the room. I saw his face, old and wrinkled, carrying a look of surprise and anger. I rushed to the door, and chased my target down the hallway, holding the miniature bomb in my hand. He turned to look at his killer, eyes wide with the realization of my identity, before sprinting to the stairs and screaming for security.
If he hadn't looked back, he might have got away. I caught him opening

:thumb339294975::thumb345575266: Princess Mononoke by SparkOut1911
LonelinessLoneliness,
Creeps upon me,
eats through my heart 'till there's nothing left.
And when the storm is all through,
I find myself looking through the dying rain to foresee another darkened tunnel,
leading to another darkened road, which branches off in many different directions
that all lead to a point of no return.
Memories of good times left in the past
haunt me,
taunt me,
and, bid me to return
but I look at the road sign it's battered with age
worn, tattered, and barely legible.
The path I had once walked has been forever rendered inaccessible.
The sands of time have cursed me,
they have left me to wander forever alone through a cruel world that is
plagued with uncertainty
and to stay myself in a place where
nothing will last forever
and what we do have can be forever changed or taken away in a minute.
