Choose what should be finished - 11/5 - 11/11/18Hello~ ^-^
As you see I´m trying to switch to a new format of art, and you read right: You can choose what Drawing I finish in a weekly interval.
I thought it will be a good way to actually draw more, and to interact more with you guys ^^
As I started studying gamedesign I was aware that my freetime will shrink to zero, and here I am, in the last year and stressed out as... well. ^^´
But I also have a lot of fun learning stuff that always had my interest, and actually creating art for games. I wil upload some of the art I did in this week, promise.
Until that I have a little favor to ask you:
Please Comment which one do you like best and wish for it to be finished ^-^
Question time: If you had any ability of the world, what would it be?
Design Prompt Requests OPEN [4/18]Hello~
I think it´s time to finally involve my Followers again after a long time - and to finally practise some drawing too, since I really need to evolve my skills on a level I can work with as a professional.
So I thought about a request box, so you too have something from my practises

- I can choose if I accept your request or not
- You can make multiple requests, but I´ll only accept one of each follower

Lucy Ranelle is a Gamedesign Student?Hello~! ^^
Long time no see, how have you been?
I am finally back, now that I have been moved to another town, and finished my first semester as an gamedesign student in Leipzig.
I am learning so many interesting things there, and I´ve met great people there too. My life has changed so much, and my art will change too, very soon.
So, tell me, what are your special things that happened to you in the last half year? ^-^
Also, you can imagine that it is very expensive to go to an artschool. If you want to support me, you could commission me, or spread the word. It would be so so kind of you to do.
There´s my journal:
Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day

Marketing Materials For ArtistsEDIT: 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 your artwork, I think it would still be good to consider putting together marketing materials as a means of creating good client relations.
This journal will include a number of things you may need in marketing yourself, but also if you are applying to art schools or for various jobs in art. I would also like to note that you d
How to Commission an ArtistI'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

Daily Deviation 7/8/2015
Hello! My name is Ruth, though I am commonly known as kayaksailor on DeviantArt. I have been a photographer for most of my life, adding up to more than a half century of taking photos! I made the official switch from film to digital in May 2007 (about the same time as I joined DA) after getting my first dSLR, a Nikon D100, at a yard sale. As I am rather fond of flower gardens and the accompanying insects, those are my primary subjects and will be my examples for this article. Personal taste will dictate your scenes! Today's article will discuss some Depth of Field tips for Close-up flower photography!
First of all... What is a Close-up Photograph?
We will begin with two simple definitions of what Close-

Let's proceed with the interview.
Hello and welcome to the Hidden Fractalist interview FarDareisMai! Could you please kindly introduce yourself to us?

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 polymer clay FAQ and my own FAQ
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 because of it's clay like properties. It is a mold-able substance that can be cured in a normal oven (or toaster oven) and will retain it's shape and remain strong after baking.
Where can I buy Polymer clay?
-You can buy Polymer clay at craft stores like Michaels, AC Moore, Jo Ann Fab

Traditional Art Week continues! This article will give you a brief overview of most commonly used physical media techniques and their characteristics, featuring beautiful examples found all over DeviantArt and tutorials. I sincerely hope this will get you inspired to try something new and experiment, why not pick a tutorial and see what you learn!

With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren't sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how
