Hi there! :3 

Like a lot of you may have already noticed, art for me is about the journey!
About learning and growing as an artist and a person and NOT doing it alone.

Therefor I spend a lot of my time giving constructive criticism to others and I try
to help them out as much as I can.

To use deviantart more efficiently I would love to try out the premium
membership (especially for things like "request critique", widgets and customising).

To achieve that I'm starting a donation pool, so that I can offer my services
for :points: to others. That DOESN'T mean that I won't keep doing what I'm
doing for free like before, it just means that if someone wants feedback to
specific pieces or my "one year subscription" they can get it :)

I still will comment and share as much as I can when I can like before!

If you would like any of the below or just support me in general it's
highly appreciated and I will be most grateful!

Sharing the Arts!

Hi guys!
AlesiaHigdon had a great idea I would love to share with you. I personally interpret as as the simple idea of team spirit. Unfortunately not enough people live by it. So it's time to change that. Instead of trying to get featured somewhere or promote just yourself it's about promoting each other. Taking the time to look through a gallery, searching for the artwork you like best and then commenting why you like it so much and how it may be improved. That way we can all help each other and learn from one another.

It's very simple! 

Rules:

1. For the first 10 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their pieces of art I like the most and comment my choice. (I will go to your gallery and pick a picture(s) that I like, you don't need to tell me which one!)

2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, and put me in the first feature slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! I feature you after you made the journal.

Hey guys!

Seems like I write a new entry once a year. :D

To keep you updated, the internship I told you in the last one
about had ended to New Years Eve. Out of financial reasons
they couldn't hire an additional artist so I was back on my job
hunt. 

Soon I decided to start working freelance. Because it was always
my dream to do so in the long run. But I never thought I would
have the opportunity yet. But I build up my portfolio, applied to
a lot of jobs and finally got my first one in March 2013.

So exciting!

My client was an indie games developer from New York, who
needed character art & animations. And also backgrounds, tiles
and some menu screens. I really learned a lot in the process,
especially about contracts, time management and finances. Also
I did my first 2D animations and I loved it!

Luckily in the end of May I directly found another client, so I could
simply keep working. Pyrrhic Studios the start up I'm working for
consists of a team of really nice people, who care a lot about their
product and the team mates as well.

Sadly I couldn't finish all the artwork needed until end of August,
because after I completed the first milestone I got a tenosynovitis.
That's said I couldn't paint for 2,5 months. And the amazing thing
is they waited for me. It's incredible.

So now that I can work again (after another delay of two weeks,
because the graphic card in my iMac crashed and the repairs took
a while) I'm trying my best to get the work done in the best
quality possible.

Tomorrow I will finish up the second milestone and hopefully the
other three will follow shortly.

So however your skill level might be right now, as long as you are
dedicated, give always your best and be a nice person to be around
everything will work out in the long run!

So keep practicing, I'm surely will!

Hugs, Tamaira

Hi everyone, I thought it would be time for a little update.
Since July 2012 I'm having an internship as concept artist in
a small company here in germany and I love it. The guys
there are nice, I'm learning a lot and I'm simply happy to
have made the next step in the right direction.

In the beginning I simply felt asleep after eight hours work and
constantly thinking, drawing and painting every day. But after
a while you get used to it. So know I have the strength again
to sit down after work and at least paint an additional hour at
home on private stuff. I'm still trying to get the grip of human
anatomy, colors, faces and simply stop struggling with photoshop
as a medium and really enjoying it! :D

So yeah, I will keep you updated and wish you all a nice
weekend.
