That's how you get pageviews
And here you have the number one question that people ask me:
"How the hell did you get so many people to view your art? You're not even that good!"
I can't do anything other than honestly admitting that I'm not that good at art. I'm not some awesomely skilled concept artist, at least. I've seen many people do a better job while receiving a lot less of attention.
Why a medium like DeviantArt works for me? Probably because I've been around on the internet for so long, and I've spend so much time working for internet-marketing company's, that things like advertising and web usability have become a second nature to me. A lot of the things that I've come to regard as common sense in internet communication, are things that are nowadays proven successful by research.
It's important to know that websites like DeviantArt are listed in the category social media. That probably didn't occur to most people, since DeviantArt seems to be so heavily focused towards art (and tradi

Conquer your artblock
I think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.

Most artblocks come from fear. The fear of not being able to

1 Million Page Views
I noticed that I reached 1 million page views today and I want to send a HUGE thank you to every single one of you who dropped by this page over the past 10 years to either write a kind comment, favorite my artwork or just browse the gallery. I read every single one of your comments, I might not have the time to answer everyone because I have an extremely hectic work life (Full time job, Freelance + work on my own personal pieces which you see in this gallery) but every comment and favorite puts a smile on my face and makes my day. I honestly didn't think I'd ever hit the 1 million page view mark but that day has come and is only proof that hard work along with a bit of creativity can definitely go a long way.
I also want to thank all of the wonderful websites that have featured my illustrations and credited me for them especially during the past 2 weeks, I am overwhelmed by the amazing support and encouragement I've been getting which only pushes me to work harder to come up with fun

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".
