Happy Friend's DaySo today is Valentine's day, which is actually called Friend's Day (Ystävänpäivä) in my country.
Friend's Day is more about remembering all your friends, not just your boyfriend/girlfriend/whatever.
And I prefer it this way, cause friends are a wonderful thing and deserve to be celebrated too. And this way singles don't need to feel left out.
So Happy Friend's Day or Valentine's Day to all my dA friends!
I'm so happy I've made some amazing friends here who support me in many ways. It means a lot to me!
I'd love to hear how this day is celebrated in other countries?
Also thanks a million for all the birthday wishes and gifts I got last month!
You are all amazing!
Sorry for my inactivity in dA lately, and for all the unanswered messages! I'll try to get to them asap.
I haven't even done almost any photography lately. I've just been trying to do many life changes lately and had a lot on my mind.
But I won't bore you with that.
Just know that I aprreciate all

How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio
PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
(The colours labelled as 'primary' are the primary colours in the RGB colour model. Primary colours of the CMYK colour model are cyan, magenta and yellow.)
