Personal Projects and Small Collaboration Ideas
Community Week
Art block and the lack ideas is a very common thing for an artist, there are many ideas and ways to help over come art block such as this fantastic article PE: Your Worst Enemy.
This article will be listing some ideas to start your own personal project and ideas for small collaborations.

Personal Projects
What is a Personal Project?
A personal project is something undertaken by an individual to achieve a goal. A series of art pieces (visual or written) that are part of a theme or goal can tell a story. (Example: PE: Telling Stories with your Art). Equally a series of artworks or a theme can do the same.
Some common ideas are:
Seasons (Summer, Autumn (Fall), Winter and Spring)
Elements (Water, Fire, Air, Earth and optionally Aether (Spirit))Times of the Day (Dawn, Noon, Dusk and Night)Days of the Week

Iftar Of Champions
Greetings fellow Deviants!
I didn't have the heart to spam my wonderful friends and watchers by dumping a large number of photos on DA all at once.  So to save everyone the torturous task of clicking through all 21 images, and hopefully prevent you from the agony of viewing them one by one, I've put together a quick photojournal instead for your viewing pleasure. Hope you  like it.
The following pictures were taken at an Iftar banquet for labourers at a privately owned parking lot adjacent to Al Ghubaiba Metro Bus Station in Bur Dubai, U.A.E. as part of a citywide campaign by members of the community to ensure that no worker, regardless of race, creed, or religion, sleeps hungry during the holy month of Ramadan.
Note: I don't know if this was a government sponsored event or an independently funded one because... well, I forgot to ask. (Hey, I was too busy taking pictures, okay?)
The meal of the day included, Hyderabadi Chicken

Why you should never aim for perfection
There are a few simple things about the pursuit of perfection that are easy to forget, so here's a healthy reminder :)
Rule 1.  Nobody - and i mean NOBODY is "perfect". Ever.
Rule 2.  See rule 1.
Perfection is boring
Perfection is hard edges and rules and disapproval of anything not deemed to be perfect.
Art isn't created from perfection, nor is it created by perfect people.  Art is messy, chaotic and curious, it has quirks and mood swings and tantrums, just like its messy, chaotic and moody creators.  Art is a reflection of all of this wonderful, beautiful chaos and no two people ever conceptualize a single piece of art in quite the same way, so perfection is ultimately impossible.
Aiming for perfection is aiming for disillusionment, frustration and goals never met.  Aiming for perfection is comparing yourself to others and feeling disappointment because you aren't them - you are YOU.
Its time to throw the word "perfection" out of the artistic window an

Pep Talk: Artistic Skills and 'Non-Art' Jobs
Art in the Professions Week
Okay, so you've been honing your art skills for years now - you've mastered shading nostrils with chalk and photographing subtle light on trees and vectoring nine thousand different typefaces of the letter "Q". Awesome!
You will soon be Khal of the Great Dollar-Bill Sea.
You put like, ten thousand hours into these skills, and you are going to use them or so help you God. But, you don't want to be a cartoonist or logo designer or the person who photographs babies at the Simpson-Sears. You want to be an accountant, a used car salesman, a restaurateur, basically anything but a staff artist. So you look for a day job. Maybe it's a temporary job until you make a career out of freelancing, maybe it's a permanent thing and you don't have designs for being a pro artist - but who doesn't want a chance to show off, right?
Well, good news: Your artistic skills

Why Won't Artists Accept Rev Share or Royalties?!
Art in the Professions Week
The straight-forward answer is: they will, under the right circumstances.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s talk about you, the developer, first.
Imagine you’re walking down the street, you’ve just received your paycheck of the week, and you’re going down to the bank to pay a couple of bills.
Just as you’re rounding the corner, someone you’ve never seen before stops you and says:
“Hey, so, I’m planning to start this detox juice store- this place just became available for renting and it’s a steal. I love juice and fruits, and me and my friends subscribe to Diet Now magazine so we know a lot about nutrition. Also, when we had a lemonade stand back in elementary school, we sold like 300 lemonades in a week. So, here’s the plan: you give me your paycheck and your next four paychecks, and then when our store becomes super famous, you’ll be rich.

Getting started with digital art
As an artist that does digital art, I always get a lot of questions about what tablets people should use and how to make their choices. While I think equipment isn't all that matters, I think some things are good to take in consideration when buying a tablet. So here's something to get you started!
Bullet; Red  Why do I need a tablet? Can't I use a mouse instead?
The biggest reason; ergonomics. When you do a lot of computer work in general, it's better to use a tablet over a mouse. This is because a mouse isn't designed for precision work. It's putting too much pressure on muscles that are not intended for precision work, hence it raises your chances to get all kinds of nasty injury's. Even if you can draw just fine with a computer mouse, you might actually consider to start using a tablet, for the reason that

Getting Your Art Seen: Being Featured
Community Week
You may remember that JenFruzz previously wrote an article on doing features of your fellow deviants and their art, letting people know how to become involved in the community. And while featuring others will bring people to your profile as they look through your other offerings to see what kind of art you make, you might wonder how you can go about getting yourself featured.
Feature Yourself
There is no shame in plugging the works you're most proud of. You plug them to your friends, and you have no qualms asking people to view your work when you're posting it and submitting it to groups. Featuring yourself is an option for getting your works noticed! But it's only effective if you're bringing other people over to view your work, right?
There is more than one way to go about this.

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Hi, I'm your below-average fourth year pharmacy student.
I started scribbling to kill time when I repeated my first year. During the summer between my first and second year I started "really" drawing, having poor time management skills, and very few free time, along with my conception of being an artist, learning how to draws isn't part of my plan, which explains my dank drawing level.

I usually take a couple weeks to reply because you know ... "social anxiety".
