Sorry for the delay in postsI apologize that I've been pretty scarce with art recently, especially to those I owe things to. Thank you for being so patient! Some personal stuff and struggles have been going on recently and its made working on any art pretty difficult. As soon as I sort things out, I'll finish up owed art and get back to posting.

Depth of Field Tips for Flower PhotographyAnimals, Plants, & Nature Week Poppies in the BlueDaily Deviation 7/8/2015Hello! 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-

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

10 things to ask before you draw a Children's BookFind the original article here10 things to ask before you draw a Children's Book - Guest Post by Wilson Williams, Jr.Artwork copyright © Wilson Williams, Jr.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
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 somedeviations 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
DeviantArt Customisation ExplainedThis article, is my attempt to help answer a lot of questions I get from people asking about various ways of customising your dA experience. I attempted numerous times to write out a tutorial with code specifics but then I thought, no, there are already enough tutorials out there that are probably more specific and accurate than me. What I thought would be best, would be to compile a bunch of resources in an organised and explained way, so that you can each learn for yourselves the best way to customise your dA.Custom Module BackgroundsOk, this is definitely the most asked of all the questions . Rather than explain things to you myself, here are the tutorials that I have found most useful, as they provide exact code for you to copy and paste, and screenshots to show you how things should look when you do it yourself;Custom Box Background Tu
