Commissions!
I've already posted and started doing this elsewhere, but I guess I should have my price list and details here as well. :) I am accepting commissions!  Mostly GW2 related (art of your in-game characters, nothing smutty or crazy though). GW2 forum thread about my commissions: https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/community/creations/Zelkai-s-Art-Commissions-open/first#post4852302 I am also accepting commissions of player-designed characters from other games that allow customization of your character. Prices (with discounted early-bird sale prices valid if you reserve a spot by the end of March as I am currently working on a backlog of sm

To share and improve - streaming on G Hangout
Hey all, I'm doing an experimental thing where I'll be streaming while I work in photoshop (on G Hangout, look for the links in my shoutbox). PLEASE READ THE FULL DETAILS BELOW because I'll be requesting that you leave the chat if you don't comply to the rules. The idea is to get artists together to work and share ideas & techniques that are currently good for producing work for the game and film industry. To focus. To improve. I'm happy to share what I know but keep in mind that I have no formal training of any kind, I taught myself and I don't know the darn rules.

Mentorships?
Hey fellow artists, Do you know of any free groups for artists who want to actively help one another improve and instruct one another? Sort of like an open ended group mentorship? If not, well I am thinking of starting one.  I love to share what I know with others, and at the same time I want to learn and hone my skills as well (more than anything at this point), but just simply can't afford to.  Currently I am thinking of doing this over skype or a facebook group, but I'm open to whatever options would best work for a group.  If interested, send me a note on here with a little blurb about yourself and why you are interested. Cheers!

Photoshop tips, shortcuts and tricks
Made a quick video (actually about 30 minutes) on some of the most essential tricks I use for adding color, texture variety and line-art in photoshop. It might not be the best way, so if you know of other ways to do these things please share them in the comments. :D But yeah... hopefully this will be useful to people: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1-_YRsXQOI

Art theft is a real issue
Alright so lately I've been seeing a lot of what I consider to be art theft on online communities and image sharing sites. Some are even offering the images for sale (with the signatures cropped out), and none of these sites are giving the real artists any credit. I see this as a real problem, and have contacted some artists whose work I have recognized.  One of the sites I've noticed this on (though they are at least not selling the artwork as far as I can tell and some of the images still have what I'm hoping are the original artist signatures) is http://wall.alphacoders.com/  - now, I am not sure if the work I am seeing is being submitted
