How to Pay artists using PaypalI'm still getting payments for digital artwork that require shipping because people forget to click the 'no shipping required' box. I can have my account flagged if I don't ship items that apparently need to be shipped. Please be sure to take care when ordering digital commissions from artists! Here is a super cool Tumblr post that shows you how to do the right thing when ordering digi-commissions. I'll be using this helpful post when people order my commissions so people have a visual ref.

EDIT: Paypal recently revamped their site so everything is set up differently (I kinda liked how it was set up before) Here's how the 'goods and services' page should look: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/185/8/d/image_by_araktugage-d7p8w6w.jpg
See how the address says it's optional? It's best not to choose any address when sending a payment for a digital commission(s) unless there's something that do
Art Thieves & What To Do About ThemHey, guys, AikouDesu here. To my surprise, we've had an increase of art thieves lately-- something that unfortunately cannot be prevented nor foreseen. It will become more frequent the bigger ALL-ART-4-EVER gets, so I wanted to post some tips and info about how to deal with art thieves.
What you can and should/shouldn't do about them
1. Do not talk to them.
Art thieves are essentially just your run-of-the-mill internet trolls, and thus they feed on the negative feedback they get from doing this. Sometimes they just want the attention, other times they just want to deliberately upset others for the fun of it. Commenting on their profile or stolen artwork will just add fuel to the fire.
Sometimes art thieves try their hardest to seem like the original artist with the intention of selling the art.
2. DeviantART ignores third-party reports.
In order for DeviantART to do anything about an art th

10 inspirational classic landscape artistsI have a lot of references and sources of inspiration to improve my creativity and skills. One of these references are the classic artists.
In recent years, I have compiled a lot of artists, and here I have selected my top ten.
I think that may be interesting for other beginner (or advanced) artists, and landscape lovers like me.
(Click on the link to see the compilation)
USEFUL STUFFHere's some nice useful things to check out (if you havent already) that i like to look at to improve or just watch for inspiration
FYI i learn more from watching things so most of these are gonna be video tutorials, artists talking while painting and timelapse paintings, since i prefer analyzing peoples workflow and try it out than straight tutorials that tell you what to do (not there's anything wrong with it though )
LEVEL UP: https://www.youtube.com/user/levelupsessions
omg.... the amount of stuff you can learn from these amazing artists is crazy! i suggest watching from session 1 till the latest. you cant miss a thing these guys say, plus these guys are pretty fun most of the time. its a nice light, but informative bunch of videos
Marc Brunet is a great teacher! i really enjoy how he explains things and just his process in general. really good to listen to and pretty entertaining to watch
Free Features!Hey everyone!
I am doing a free feature on my profile page! Yep! Absolutely free . No need to do anything for me, watch me, or even look through my gallery.
Feature box status: OPEN!
Oh and, I'd appreciated it if you'd faved this journal so that more people can see it
Because I am busy and still have school, I may close the feature box every once in awhile if I get completely flooded with notes (very unlikely to happen). IF THE FEATURE BOX IS CLOSED, DON'T SEND ME A NOTE FOR A FEATURE! YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY REJECTED AND BANNED FROM THE FEATURE BOX FOR 3 MONTHS, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
I will only feature an unnoticed artist. This does not mean that you have under whatever amount of watchers, but that you deserve more way more watchers for the art you have. (don't be shy because of this, I'm not that strict about it, I just don't want to feature artists with a whole bunch of watchers already)
