For each of the first 21 people answering this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list!
If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on the first place. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!!!

How To Photograph Your Paintings
How To Photograph Your Paintings
In this article I want to discuss a common problem that some traditional artists have. That's photographing your paintings. Whether it be for selling prints or just getting your art noticed online the importance of having paintings look great is key. If your fortunate enough to have a scanner for smaller pieces then that's great! But if your working on large canvases or paper then you can run into issues. The most common problem artists have are Glare, Blur and Color. All of which will be discussed in this article.
Anyone who has worked with acrylics and oils knows what a problem this can be when your trying to take a picture of a painting. This is not as much a issues for a artist working with watercolors

Giveaways NEED to STOP!Giveaways on deviantART need to stop! They're having a number of detrimental effects on the community at large. Within this article, I aim to discuss this problem, as well as provide alternatives for giveaways. I'll begin by outlining what a giveaway is, both in the real world and on deviantART; explain why giveaways are simply not for deviantART; illustrate my points with real-world examples; and then go into detail on what exactly the aforementioned detrimental effects are. Additionally, I will counteract a number of excuses people use for holding and entering giveaways; as well as offer alternatives to giveaways for both parties.
I know the article is quite long, but this is an issue which myself and a growing number of other community members feel to be important. But I promise, it doesn't actually take too long to read once you get going!
If you agree with my points in this article, or even simply find the debate interesting, I would appreciate
Point commissionsHello there!
I decided to start making commissions to get points for future contest.

b) check out my gallery to see what I am capable of!
- a human character w/ no background - 45
- a human character w/ background (preferred nature) - 75
- an animal w/ no background - 40
- an animal w/ background (nature) - 75
d) prices may vary if you order a 'challenging' art or an art that will take more time to finish. But don't be scared, I won't demand much more
e) please SEND ME A NOTE if interested, with as many details described as possible.
