What kind of money do pro artists make?Hello again,
I find myself once again looking at the money situation for artists. I have had some people contact me to do commissions and they have been VERY good clients. They are respecting of my time and effort and the amount of money I ask for my work. But there have been times in the past where I have been asked to work for VERY low pay, if any. And I know most of us have been there, if not there now. But there is an important truth I want to share with you.
Artists are due money for their work. If you are wanting to take money for work, you are a working artist. Maybe you are not 'professional' in the sense you do random jobs and are not doing it as a living, but you ARE a working artist. And as such you should demand respectable money for your work.
"But my art is not worth a lot!" Says who? You. Yep. You are saying that. And who says what you ask for is a lot? What is the going rate?
I am going to share with you selected price lists that professional artists use based on the gu
OCT Entry TipsI wanted to save this too... But I modified it so that it's applicable to OCTs in general. OCTs may vary but some core things stay the same, so these are some general tips.
If it's your first time in an OCT, the audition process can be a bit daunting - it's quite a bit of work, and there's a chance that you might not get into the first round by the end of it. The key thing to remember is that this process is the same for almost every OCT, and every experience will help.
This is a snapshot of your character that shows details so that your opponent can accurately portray them and any objects/side characters associated with them. Some OCTs may provide templates which you should follow to a T, and some may ask for more information than others. Beyond following instructions, these tips should hold out:

10 Free Photoshop AlternativesAlsalam alaikum /Hello Everybody
So I was browsing dA journals and found this link that I think it might help some of you .
10 Excellent Open Source and Free Alternatives to Photoshop
I've seen so many traditional artists here in dA ,Whose art is so pretty ,but the way they present it to dA makes it dull and dark and the colors loose their saturation when they scan their drawing or photograph it .
These programs will be a good help for them to correct/edit their drawings before submitting it to dA .
As well as for digital artists and pixel artists ,no matter the system you're using (Windows or Mac)
Hope they help .

Week 7 Pose Circus Challenge for :devdAPoses:Constantly Connected.
In these technological times, at least in the cities and metro areas, there is a sense of having to be constantly in touch, to be in reach, to able to instantly make contact. So, this is all about being on your cell phone, your smart phone, your laptop, desktop, smart tv, gaming with your buds online, blogging, facebooking, DA'ing.
Each week on Saturday, there will be a new challenge to the stock artists and a folder created for the theme of that challenge. This will go on for 8 - 10 weeks. Instructions for each challenge will be in the folder for that week. And as always, our core requirements and stock guidelines must be followed. Each folder will have two sub folders, one will be for any nude submissions. We think we may have the permissions sorted out so try to put them into the proper folder please and do note us if there are any problems submitting.
We have decided as a way to encourage more submissions and involvement to make each challenge last for the ent
