Having an Online Presence
"All artists need to have an online presence," I said.
"Easy for you to say, Popular Artist
," they said.
"I had to work hard to get 'popular'," I said
"But it's SOOO hhaaaaAAARD," they said
"That's what I just said," I said.
    After making my status posts about making an online presence, I figured I'd make a sort of guide. I made a very generic list of things you should do as an artist who wants to get their name out there or "get popular". A lot of people were like, "but I've done all of that". But chances are, you haven't. There's a lot that goes into this and it takes a long ass time. Don't think it's just gonna happen in a month.
    So I made a guide based on my own experience and what worked for me (as an illustrator/artist. Some of these tips are more specific than others and some of these will not necessarily work for you. Everyone's different. Keep in mind this is mostly for illustrators/animators/story artists etc. This won't work fo

Holiday Card Project 2012

It's back!  With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

SamGuentherArt's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Born in Africa
Grew up in Wisconsin
On Reddit as /u/sammers092

I grew up loving the culture and the texture of Africa, enjoying the feeling I get when thinking of the relative wilderness and unknowns of the continent. I want to capture that wilderness in my drawing and paintings, and turn over a new leaf artistically. I like the work I did before, but this is a whole new adventure.


I'm back! How is everybody? 

3 deviants said Could be better but I'm doing good :)
2 deviants said Great!
No deviants said Meh.
No deviants said I'm having a sort of a bad day
No deviants said I have coffee. Therefore, I am perfect.
