Artworks for Books?So, I was thinking about opening a new commission or art trade soon. It'd be just a few commission not for money but for books!My parents are always saying I shouldn't buy book but I NEED THEM adasdasd now here it is! I'll work for them or trade them!For exampleYou ask for a Digital Portrait which is 10$. You won't send me the 10$ but send a book for the same price It can be whatever, comic, novel, anything. I'll write a list about my favourite type of books (and my own books for avoiding double copies) and you'll choose one. Or not a commission but a trade which is almost the same except there is no limit for the books.I'll draw, you'll send a book I'm still thinking about the rules, how to avoid being fooled (because I have experience) but I hope you're all trustworthy.So what do you think? This is not a sure thing yet, it's all on you. I made this journal as a survey, so please comment what do you think about it! I'd like to see how many of you

Digital Art - AnimationGalleries MonthWhat is animation?Animation is the illusion of movement created from the quick sucession of static images with minimal differences between them. Today there is a great variety of animation techniques that include traditional animation (a sucession of frames, drawn digitally or traditionally), stop motion (photographs of real life objects), 3D animation (created with computer software), rotoscoping (tracing a live action sequence, frame by frame) and a large etcetera. The Digital Art > Animation gallery is intended for animations of all kinds, as long as they were made with digital mediums and they're NOT in Flash or video format (usually in GIF format).If the animation was made with traditi
7 awesome crafts you probably didn't know existed7 Awesome Crafts you probably didn't know existedThe world of crafting is fascinating and never ending. We have been crafting since the first human molded some mud into a pot, and a seemingly endless list of crafts has been created since. Some crafts are very well known, and you have probably dabbled a bit into them yourself... but some of them are a lot less known. I put some examples together, please enjoy them and leave a comment below letting us know how many of them you already knew if you know any unknown crafts, feel free to share them with us!Extra credits if you already tried some of these!Note: These are NOT totally obscure crafts that are only practiced in remote places of the world or that require specialized equipment, I chose crafts that should be easy enough to pick up but not a lot of people are doing.1. Stone carving.Incredible works of art can be made even from the humble common stone. Precious or semi-
Art History: Celtic Art In Early HistoryCeltic Art - A Look In HistoryWritten by KovoWolf for projecteducate There is something so unique and so humbling about Celtic art that we can immediately recognize it when we see it, though it is difficult to truly describe as a single 'medium'. With intricate designs, swirls, and beautiful knotwork however Celtic art is also a medium that you can recognize when you see it. Because Celtic art covers a huge expanse of time, geography and throughout various cultures, it can present some difficulty when trying to term or define what Celtic art truly is.Celtic art and culture date back as far as the 8th century B.C generally refers to the culture of the European Iron Age from around 1000 BC onwards, until the conquest by the Roman Empire. The Early Medieval art of Britain and Ireland, which produced the Book Of Kells and other masterpieces that are well known today and can be associated with "ce
Fractal Tutorials and the Heroes Who Made Them...I have been creating Fractals using fractal/flame software for about 2 years now, and have been so grateful for the makers of the Tutorials we learn from. In a previous journal we looked at different soft wares that are available to use...most of them FREE. Today we look at a some of the wonderful Tutorials created by people here in Deviant Art. Without their excellent guidance...some of us would still bee stumbling around in the dark trying to figure things out. If YOU have ever been interested in making fractal images...this journal is for you!Apophysis Tutorials by the fractal artist TsukinoHikari20 :icontsukinohikari20: are some of the first I personally began to experiment with.
10 Easy Ways to Up Your Color GameTraditional Art WeekHere are 10 ideas to try to have more fun with color in your art! All the examples used are works by the members of the Deviant Art community.1. Make your OWN color wheel.Use only primary red, yellow, and blue to create all the shades by color blending or using premade colors depending on your preference. Using your own medium to create your own reference will give you a realistic spectrum of the colors you have at your disposal.2. Create contrast with complements. Opposites attract attention! Red/Green, Orange/Blue, Purple/Gold. There's a reason that complementary colors are often seen on logos, sports jerseys and holiday decor. For an easy, and quick way to grab attention use two colors directly
27Shoot, its that time of the year again where for unknown reasons random people start saying 'Happy Birthday' to me. Yes it is true, I am another year closer to death (Ry is really optimistic sometimes isnt he?). WELL its all good, I mean I just wanna take a minute to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday, today has been quite pleasant actually. Received many gifts from fellow Ryceballs, some nice messages, and I did a little Livestream that I think people quite enjoyed and had a good laugh. All going well so far. So yes, 27 years down, what a life! Well since today is my special day, I have decided to take you guys for a ride in the Life of Ry journey, what was Ry doing 5 years ago? 10 years ago? 20 years ago?! Lets start from the year I was born.1986: Ry came out of his mother's womb with crayon in his hands.1987: Ry's first word was "RYYYYYYYYYRYYYY!!" In fact thats all he could say the whole year.1988 (Accidentally skipped a year and ad

I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol. So the company saw my work and they told me to come in. I was really
Seek and you shall findHiya Ryceballs, oh my god what an insane couple of days. I don't even know where to start I really don't, it has to do with papa Ry, my dad. It has been an emotional roller coaster for him and this whole event is kinda like a joke now when I think back on it. OK long story short, he was afraid he's gonna be jobless, pretty much he left his old job to work in a 'better' job only to find out that this better job has an even more unreasonable boss bla bla bla I don't wanna get into full details for his privacy's sake. So now he wants to quit this current job and go back to his old job and im like 'ARE YOU FREAKIN JOKING ME?! YOU JUST LEFT! AND NOW U WANNA GO BACK?!' Like how embarrassing would that be right? But he says he has no other options and no other jobs out there, so I told him to look for jobs online and he's like 'Oh nah it won't make a difference'. :I This is coming from a man who doesn't know how to turn off an ipad. So I told him a true story I read... I thought it has
2014 Positivity Project So after my post last night I started thinking; positive thinking; I want to do something to promote positivity throughout the world, not just in my life so I decided to start a 2014 Positivity Project using a tumblr blog and hopefully make it grow more throughout the year. The 5 W's What? The whole point of this project is to spread positivity through photographing inspirational/positive/motivational/uplifting quotes written on paper When? NOW!

If you do one, leave a comment in this journal, on my page or send me a note and I will add it to

10 Reasons to ALWAYS Read Submission GuidelinesPublishing WeekThink you're too cool for submission guidelines? Think again...1. It only takes five minutes.2. And preparing your materials the right way will make you look professional (even if you’re just starting out. Or a cat).3. It makes the editor’s life much easier, since they’re probably buried in paper to begin with.Not that kind of paper!4. And keeps them from becoming enraged at yet another improper submission.5. And when the editor is happy, you’re more likely to get accepted!6. Instead of outright rejected because you didn’t number your pages or something.7. And if the lit mag you’re submitting to uses slush readers instead, they will also be relieved.8. Instead of wanting to just crawl under the desk and die.9. In short, read the guidelines for a happier publishing experience.10. Or else.
