Inspiration for New Artists

Inspiration for New Artists

I posted this on Facebook, and thought to post it here too. "I want to share this for all the new artists out there who might get discouraged by the amazing artwork other miniature artists are posting. It takes a lot of time, patience and practice to get where we are. Keep at the hobbies you're passionate about. Don't give up. In time, you can be putting out masterclass works too. Only you choose how much time you put into a project. If YOU're happy with how your miniatures look with a quick base coat and wash, then that's all that matters! My Mountain King was a 5 month on/off project because I wanted to put that amount of effort in to it.
Trying out the Deviant Art app, test sharing a photo of the mini I'm currently painting. Hmmm, yeah, the camera on my tablet is far inferior to my phone. I'll have to get the app installed there.

Convincing DeviantArt to Recognize Miniature Artis

Convincing DeviantArt to Recognize Miniature Artis

I don't write many journals here, because most of what I want to say, I do so on my website: But this is a topic I want to bring to light because it's bugged me for a while and I think there are a ton of artists out there who deserve proper recognition. Deviant Art can be a great art community, but currently there's no section specifically for miniature artists. I usually use "Traditional Art -> Painting" but that puts my minis next to all sorts of 2D paintings. It just doesn't fit. The miniature category under Artisan Crafts is also a dicey fit because it's focused on stuff you make with your hands, no
