How to work smarter and not harder on commissions
~saniika (https://www.deviantart.com/saniika) Hi all! I am currently for several years now a freelancer earning my living with commissions and other side projects. Throughout the years I have made quite a bit of discoveries, tested what works for me or not and here is the compiled result on how to improve and make it easier for you to work on commissions.

Common Misconceptions: Daily Deviations
Hello everyone! In this “Common Misconceptions” blog we’ll be covering the often-debated topic of Daily Deviations, more commonly known as DD’s. This topic is probably most talked about above any other here on deviantART and I don’t think it can be discussed enough when it comes to misinformation.

Hey all! New updates were made to my profile directory that may be of interest to those who have purchased one:

  • Custom column layout: You can now make 3, 4, 5, etc. columns for the main buttons and fill your directory with buttons to your heart's content.
  • Long buttons: Within the column layout, you can pick specific buttons to fill the entire directory
  • Font Styling: Fonts can now be italic, bold, or letter-spaced
  • Google Fonts should now work in the preview, so you can see exactly how the fonts will appear on your page.

Basically, you can now make weird layouts like so:

If you guys have any other suggestions, please send them my way! I know people have been asking about adding images to the buttons, and I'm currently working on that one. Any other suggestions, however, are most welcome. :aww:
