1.) How do you use social media to grow as an artist?
To find useful tutorials and tips from other artists. To ask them questions, to engage in conversation and for the support. With lots of challenges where you have to do something with a specific task on a daily, weekly basis (ex. Inktober) we connect with each other and push us to fulfill those challenges. I also like to see other's work to get reminded how many art medias are out there, what styles, color mixes...how much there's still to do. 


2.)What are some moments where you feel you’ve reached your “100” and what skill are you working on maximizing next?
Never had the 100 moment, nor will I ever have...because there's always the next level...there's always room to make it better and better.
Skill? umm :dummy: For now I would be even happy to even have time to paint something ...but regarding skill...be better at figure drawing, poses. That's what I lack a lot.

Orange Arrow Left [F2U]  I also have QUESTIONS FOR THE PANEL :nerd: rvmp :

In the modern, digital age where does traditional art stand? Where is its place? Is it a thing of the past and is outdated? Also in relation to social media...is digital art more preferred (regarding companies, clients, regular art viewers that use social media)? 

And also how about the future of traditional art. Will it grow and evolve together with digital art, where in some point they will merge? Or turn into a little niche where only handful of artists will be doing it?

Yes, they are many...and all thanx to other artists who recognized the importance of sharing knowledge with other people. For someone like me, having social media was and still is the only way to learn art stuff and bond with other like-minded people. =D

1. I use social media, especially Instagram and DeviantArt; to find great and beautiful arts and artworks. Fanarts of our desired interests and favorite shows, even from copyrighted media, is very common for artists in the 21st century today. As an 18-year-old artist myself, I find interesting creations that I have never seen before, such as LEGO MOCs and modern houses, and I love to draw them. Even in cartoons (especially anime), I usually copy the character in a different way based on my inspiration and imagination. When I browse @ DeviantArt, my artistic talents grows, even with my patience.

2. When I reached my 100th artwork, it will be my own surprise. While traditional art is my first methodology of visual arts, I'm still practicing on digital art, which is Paint Tool SAI, and soon Adobe PhotoShop.

  Before I was online, I used to be pretty shy about my artwork. Now that I am older, I use my social media to let people check out what I have, in case of an art show or other events.

  As for being “100” in my works, it is when I really love a project I’m working on. The next time I feel that, it will be the same thing. ^^

"What are some moments where you feel you’ve reached your “100” and what skill are you working on maximizing next?"

So, reaching 100 is the ultimate Goal while there is still Hunger for even more? Why do so if 100 is already the ultimate Goal?
Don´t get me wrong, this is a good Idea and I´m happy with everyone participating. I´m just not so happy with that Question for it implies a neverending thirst for more and more and even more. This Way, true Satisfaction will never be reached, making the whole Concept feel sour - to me, at least.

Hooray for the Participants, nontheless!

Wow, all of these creators are so inspiring. That is the best part of DeviantArt besides the sense of community. I have a Bachelor's in Art emphasis in Digital Media, & I'm trying to grow more as a digital artist. College didn't teach me too much of the digital aspect, sadly. I'm taking the reins myself, & working on becoming more diverse in what mediums I am able to work in.

1. I use social media to find other artists / designers that I admire so that I have a constant source of inspiration; it's an excellent way to broaden your horizons and see the awesome work that is being made every day. Just mind the gap (thanks Ira Glass!) and don't compare yourself to others, art is a personal / individual journey!

2. I'm the kind of creative that never feels like he's going to get to 100 - there's always room to improve. But I always strive to reach that unattainable goal, because to do anything else would be boring. So I always look at my current project and try to do better in my next. That's not to say I'm not proud of the work I've done, though!

Looking forward to the festival, see you on Saturday!

You make a great point about spending too much time comparing oneself to others. Getting inspiration from social media but staying motivated and not discouraged can be a fine line!

1) I use social media as a diverse platform of constructive criticism since I feel I get too many compliments on my art (Not that it's a bad thing). I feel that I want to expand my art, so I look forward to hearing what I should improve on, especially since I am an art perfectionist when I do large pieces.

2) I feel that I've reached my "100" when I have mastered a pose of perspective, like if someone is looking up or floating in mid-air. I really feel that I've reached my "100" when I have perfected a lighting technique or reflections and specific color palettes.

The more motivation, the more ready you are; that's my advice.

I really wish I got more feedback about ideas and interests, especially since  my art tends to be story-based in some way. But at the same time, I sometimes just want somewhere to organize and show my work. I've recently made a Tumblr blog dedicated to one of my stories where I just sprinkle ideas and plans to reflect on and work with. It's really helped to focus my ideas.

1) I only ever really use DeviantArt, and that's where all the artwork I actually finish gets posted. So I use it to post drawings every time I finish a drawing in order to show my progress. 

2) Some moments where I feel like I have reached a "100" are when I finally figure out how to draw a certain thing or use a certain tool on my computer art program. I'm still continuing to develop my art skills in both traditional and digital art, as I am nowhere near my full potential on either.

  • How do you use social media to grow as an artist?
I use Deviant Art, Tumblr, and Instagram to post my art and post my prices for commissions. I am now starting to animate and posting them on YouTube
  • What are some moments where you feel you’ve reached your “100” and what skill are you working on maximizing next?
One time was where I was drawing at the library, there was an area where there are table and desks and such, kinda like a meeting or a spot if you were going to be picked up or something. I was drawing at one of the tables, and this lady who was pretty positive (And was a complete stranger) and her friend noticed my art and went "This looks pretty good! Looks like we have an artist in front of us! " Then walked away. After that I was surprised that a complete stanger, in real life did this. I'm more used to getting that feedback online. That made my month of this year. Another thing was that I was proud of this . After I was done, I just felt this rush of proudness. I'm also currently working on an animation that's progress made me feel proud. Now finding my artstyle, I'm feeling amazing and at 100

Do you ever just redraw something from like 5 years ago and you're just like,, "i did not know i could do this"

1. Social media gives me thousands of opportunities as an artist. I can share my work with people all around the world and get a feedback, and vise versa. It
2. Actually, every time I make a drawing. And whenever I feel like I've reached my '100', I always tend to push my limits and go even beyond that.

More from DeviantArt

Thank You for Your Feedback on Eclipse!

Last week, we announced the Beta launch of DeviantArt Eclipse — a completely redesigned version of DeviantArt that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. As a Beta release, Eclipse is still under development and only available to a small portion of the DeviantArt community. We use the Beta release to gather feedback that allows us to closely analyze deviant engagement and sentiment.

Over 4,000 deviants have already tried Eclipse and many have shared their invaluable and much-appreciated feedback. We’ve received nearly 1,700 individual Eclipse feedback reports — including 407 bug reports, 532 feature requests, and 748 pieces of general commentary. Our team has read through and triaged over 60% of these reports and has a goal of completing all of them in the coming week. Thank you to every deviant who has taken the time to share feedback. Whether you’re someone who provided a few words or several paragraphs of candid response, we appreciate the passion you have for helping us ensure Eclipse will meet the needs of our diverse community.

This Is Just the Beginning of Eclipse

As with most Beta releases, we launched Eclipse knowing there were bugs and highlighted a handful of the most obvious in our release journal. We wanted to release sooner than later so we can begin this journey together – gathering feedback and insights and applying it into our development, fixes, and improvements. Plus, as Beta Testers, this is what you signed up for! We need your deviant-expertise to help identify bugs everything from baby bugs to elusive, exotic bugs.

Based on feedback, it’s clear there are certain areas of Eclipse that are leaps and bounds ahead of the “green site.” It’s also clear there are some things that need to be improved. We expected this and continue to welcome your feedback — the good and the bad. We’re in this together and want to hear from deviants every step of the way.

We're Exploring More Ways To Customize Your Profile

Eclipse provides new ways to personalize your Profile, including the ability to select Header Art for your page, linking to your social media platforms, and stating your commission status. However, with the removal of Custom Box, we heard, loud and clear, that deviants want more options to display content.We’re also in the process of exploring other ways you can customize your Profile.We’ll be sharing tips and varied examples of ways you can really customize Profiles. In the meantime, here’s one example of how @katy-l-wood is testing Eclipse’s current abilities to enhance her Profile.
Many deviants asked for the ability to showcase a single deviation on your profile. This is something we are already working on. We’d also like to clarify that, for the foreseeable future, Custom Boxes within Groups will remain as they are. Groups will eventually be redesigned with Eclipse in mind, but that process won’t be complete for many months. We’ll provide advance notice about any removal of Custom Boxes in Groups.

Addressing Your Other Top Concerns

The new Feedback allows easy viewability of your most recent and unread notifications; however, we’ve seen concerns about Feedback needing improvement as a whole. For example, deviants report it’s cumbersome to remove notifications and it’s hard to remove notifications in bulk. We’ll be making the “remove” button more accessible so that you can one-click remove (or one-click save) just as you could on the “green site.” We’re still reviewing the experience of mass removing feedback and hope to have updates soon.We are currently working on issues regarding Header Art and avatars – specifically, their size and quality. Icon codes and plz accounts will be coming soon to Eclipse. :iconlaplz:The new text editor makes it easy to write Literature, with the option to add formatting and illustrations to your work. That said, the Literature experience in Eclipse is still a work in progress. As we mentioned in the Beta journal, using Literature and journal thumbnails is not yet finished. Literature thumbnails in the sidebar (under “More Like This”) are also not yet finished.Improving the display of Literature thumbnails is something our Product and UX teams are already actively working on improving.Having a “Show More” link on deviation descriptions and comments allows for a cleaner viewing experience; however, based on feedback, we've removed "Show More" from deviation descriptions and comments.While search in Gallery, Favourites, and Journals didn’t make it into the Beta version of Eclipse, it’s our aim to bring this functionality to Eclipse.Several deviants brought up that the ability to include thumbs by pasting a URL (or thumb code) is not currently possible. We mentioned this in the original announcement, but we want to reiterate this is not working as intended and will be implemented in the future.

Of course, this isn’t a complete list. It represents our first step at addressing some of your top concerns and we’ll be sharing more responses and updates — including bug fixes — in the weeks ahead.

Keep it Coming!

In the release process, things are constantly evolving as we gain insights and implement updates. Please keep in mind these updates can take time to get used to. As you continue to explore Eclipse, share your thoughts and concerns through the Eclipse overall feedback or bug report/feature request forms. While we encourage general discussion in the journal comments, using the official form allows us to triage and act on feedback in a quicker, more manageable way.

We also want to give a shout-out to the amazing deviants who’ve produced really thorough Eclipse reviews:
