of constantly having to refresh your pages like 15 times. It's impossible for me to clear all my deviation notifications because I always end up just being able to view 10 deviations before the whole site starts lagging again. And I don't think it's my ISP. everything else on the page, loads. The thumbnails load. The Adverts load. It's just the actual deviation that doesn't load. I have no problems loading facebook, watching videos on youtube and going to other sites. It's only deviant art! I have to try and check back after a few minutes then I'd be able to open a few deviations again (about 20) before the whole thing chokes up again.
Here's a stupid question...
How does a Deviation get more downloads than views? =P
I just find it odd that one of my Deviations has more downloads than views. I mean, don't you need to click on(view) a Deviation before can be able to download it?
As much as I love DA, the whole usability of this website really leaves a lot to be desired.
I got an email from the editor of cgsociety telling me that he liked my work that was featured in the latest issue of ImagineFX.
I was like Wha? I sent my stuff almost eight months ago and I never got a single email receipt let alone an email telling me that they're featuring my stuff in the Reader FXpose portion of their magazine.
So I went down to get a copy of the magazine expecting to see my stuff in one of the new artists featured there.
But I didn't expect this... http://bit.ly/etP4AW
This is probably the best surprise ever! This is definitely a dream come true for me! :D
I've been looking at other people on DA doing commission and I noticed that I might have pegged my commission prices on the high side. So I've given my commission prices some thought.
Here's the updated pricing:
Line Art Commissions A4 size canvass on 300dpi
30USD for 1 character, 15USD per additional character. No Backgrounds.
Half to full body line art drawings of existing characters or characters created by client. Usually, I draw very rough character poses on paper then I draw tighter lines in Photoshop.
5 slots available.
Once I've started on a piece, line art commissions may take anywhere from 3 days to 1 week.
So like I've mentioned in my last post, I'm thinking of trying out doing commission work here in DA. Times are really tough right now for me and I need to make some extra income. So please help out a fellow starving artist. =P
I've been looking at some of the guidelines of other artists that I follow here on DA that do commissions, and I got some tips and pointers from KaanaMoonshadow (https://www.deviantart.com/kaanamoonshadow) as well. :D
So here it is:
Line Art Commissions A4 size canvass on 300dpi
50USD for 1 character, 20USD per additional character. No Backgrounds.

Please don't kill me but I just need to clarify something. How do commissions really work?
My rough idea about it is this:
a) Client and Artist agree on the price and the topic of the illustration/drawing.
b) Artist paints/draws it according to agreed specification.
c) Client pays for it by paypal or whatnot.
d) Artist sends over the hi-res raw file (PSD or whatnot) to the client.
Is that all there is to it?
Been thinking of trying my luck at doing paid commissions here on Deviantart. Times are kind of tough and I need to get extra income wherever I can.
Someone filed a violation report against me because I failed to label my deviation: Guardian of the Seas as having mature content.
Whoever filed that report, thanks a lot. You could have just commented about it. I hope you're mighty proud of yourself.
Finally! After 6 months of designing and 1 month-straight of actual flash development, my website revamp is finally complete err, sort of. A wise man once told me: A website is a work in progress. I guess this definitely applies to my site. This is the first website that Ive developed fully in Flash. So this is sort of a BETA test for this new version. Some of the links might seem like theyre not responding. Just give them time to load. I still havent figured out why some content seem to get chocked inside somewhere when you access them. Forgive me for any typos or bugs in the flash UI, and please let me kno
