“Some use Ink, I confide in Silver”
— Lauren E. Simonutti
Quote by Lauren E. Simonutti
“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. A creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends, I am aware enough to know the things I see and hear are not real, but that does not mean I do not still see and hear them.”
For a very long time
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
Did you know? - Suggesting DDsDD is short for Daily Deviation and is - like the name lets you presume - a daily feature of artworks from different the galleries.
DDs can be featured by Community Volunteers and Staff members.
While browsing it can happen that you come across deviations that you think should be featured as a DD, but how?
First of all you need to take a look at the gallery it was submitted to.
You can find this information in the description area, directly below the artwork itself.
With that category in mind, we are now heading over to communityrelations to take a look at this CV overview. It lists all volunteers and the gallery they take care of.
Beside the overview at communityrelations you can also find the same list at :faq18:
For our example we now need to search for the Photography CVs.
As you can see there are plenty of t

Laying a wash
A wash is a large area in a watercolor painting where the paint flow and diffusion have been manipulated to efface individual brushstrokes. Within wash areas, color transitions are usually gradual and span analogous hues. Laying a wash is one of the most satisfying tasks in watercolor painting. Essentials of this s

Open for commissionsI am now open for digital commissions.
The works could be everything from character heads, busts, illustrations, wolves, whatever you can think of, I'm very open minded.
I mostly paint and rarely do lineart, unless asked for.
I'm very serious about this and I put effort into the commissions I receive.
I'll accept only cash, on paypal, or DA points.
Prices will vary from 2$ to 15$.
