Tips For Commission ArtistsHello! I thought of making this small guide, based from my personal experience, to give tips to artists, mostly beginners, to be more successful at selling commissions, since seeing from my previous journal many had difficulty with it. So here are some tips to help boosting your sales.Tips For Commission Artists by Kawiku
Have your commission info somewhere visible
Possibly, people won't even know you are taking commissions or if they are open if you don't put your commission info somewhere they can see. You can do this in a journal, that I mostly recommend, since it will be showing into your watcher's inboxes and most of your watchers probably rarely visit your profile page. You could still also use the commission widget, or donation poll to write your info. You can also link to your commission info in your signature or the artist's comment of new drawings you upload.
Keep it simple
Don't add too many unnecessary rules or in
10 ways to improve fasterDear, deviantart fellow artists10 ways to improve faster by snowmarite
As artists we seek for constant improvement. We learn, we strive for perfection, we fail and we keep doing things we love to do - here are my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Take notes
If you read something useful and inspirational - write it down. In journal, sketchbook - anywhere. Sketch something, put some lovely quotes - the information you'll see on tutorials, books and articles. You can't remember everything, so if you take notes and write the most meaningful things and then look through them - you'll learn more effectively.
2. Get out of the comfort zone
Learn something new with every new artwork you make. Challenge yourself, don't be afraid to study new things and push the boundaries of what you know. It feels so safe in
Art and confidenceDear, deviantart fellow artistsArt and confidence by snowmarite
Confidence is very meaningful thing for an artist - It helps us to not be afraid of our goals, but we have to remind ourselves that too much of the ego can lead to arrogance and vanity. Here goes my thoughts about the topic and I hope that my insights might be helpful.
How to boost the confidence?
If you feel that you are not good enough and you lack the willingness to make & post artworks, just because someone else is better, you don't have the right skill and there is not enough time, and there is no point in that... stop. You are good enough and you have everything you need and there is no reason why you can't do what you really want to do. Don't make excuses. You and only you have something valuable to offer to the world - your life experiences, your influences and creativity make you special and no-one else will do that in your place. And there are people that
10 ways to get inspiredDear, deviantart fellow artists10 ways to get inspired by snowmarite
Inspiration is such an important subject for every artist. When we have it - we feel amazing and full of creative energy, but when we lack it, we tend to be anxious and procrastinate on things we really like to do.
So here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Go outside
We tend to spend way too much time indoors. Try to do some plein-air painting/drawing. Explore the world around you - It's not only good for your health, but It's also a great way to get inspired by nature, people in streets, clouds and sunsets etc.
2. Gather pictures in inspiration folder
If you see some amazing art, photography - save it on your computer. Or fave it in dA, or collect in your tumblr/pinterest board. Look at that folder every once in a while. If you see some really advanced and cool art
