I read the rules but still wasn't sure, it sounded like the School of the Arts section was just for people teaching. Sorry to be a bother. >.<
You can either post it as a start to having a gallery and ask for feedback, or just post it here! You can also post it in art school under the "Help" tag if you want a dedicated critique thread. It's a little quiet in there, so I won't mind if you want to post it in the main section.

    So I have been on this site for awhile now, and something that I have always wanted was a signature that made my profile more unique. Problem is, I really don't know how to make one, or where to go asking so figured my best bet may be starting here. Anyone have any suggestions or leads by chance?

    Completely understandable if not, just been thinking about it more lately.

        I'm not really an artist, so I only rarely get into any type of drawing project. However as I've recently heard a lot about a piece of software called "Aseprite", I figured I might as well try it out.
        Spoiler:

        Still need to figure out a couple things and find a good color palette.

        But yeah, what tools are you using, if I may ask? :)

        Why hello, it's been a while! I completed this a couple of weeks ago. It's got a good few flaws, but reddit seemed to enjoy it.

        It's really ambitious! I love that lighting, it's usually always auto assume you have a light from the front, but having it mostly from the side/back is a really nice change and gives it a menacing atmosphere. I'd say work on the sword hand, it doesn't look like they're actually gripping it, just kinda like it's pasted on to the hand.

        Thank you! I'd definitely agree. The reference used wasn't entirely HD enough to see how the hand fit the hilt, and I'm awful with hands/feet in the first place ahaha

        Yo, hey I'd like to see how people feel about this suggestion:

        Would anyone be interested in bringing back multiple art battles/weekly competitions? Also, would you like to see more medium focused contests (graphics art for a week or something or pixel art).
        Would anyone be interested in a big art community project (or multiple if people would like to work in medium focused projects)

        I just wanna see if anyone would be down and anyone wants to talk with me to try and host something.

        Im actually wanted to make another drawpile session again so we can go drawing together again, so I would think it might be a good idea to host a drawing together session with a theme tho.

          Yeah, I'd be interested in art comps. It seems this forum has mostly devolved into just posting your random works in your showcase, which results in a more isolated feel.

          I can feel that, yeah. I'm going to being back art battles. If there's a weekly/monthly competition anyone wants to host or suggest, I'd love to hear other people's thoughts!

          Okay recommendations wanted!

          I'm looking to commission someone to draw from a photograph of a decreased pet (dog) and then maybe get it framed. Which dA artists that you follow do you think would be able to do it? What would I be looking at in terms of cost/shipping/etc? I live in Australia. This is a present I would need by the 17th of December.

          Unfortunately I don't know anyone specific who does pet portraits, even not related to dA.
          though usually if they do animals/creatures well they can do pet portraits, how about hitting up ana ;)

          Were you looking for like, a detailed traditional painting? If you just wanted less real paint focus, it might be easier for you to ask the artist for a high quality digital file, that you could then print and frame yourself (I can help with how to get that done), as I suspect the cost and shipping to be pretty high even within your country itself, as well as limit the available artists you could use. Some artists actually don't know anything about high quality printing specs, considering how many services and digital alternatives there are, and also the shipping involved, or even just not having the time to do so. About what size were you after?

          Alternatively if you are looking for a traditional painting, you can check your local artist area. Pretty much every area has old time traditional painters, especially if you go to more rural areas. Though, seeing as you wanted to commission from dA, I'm guessing that's not what you're specifically after.

          Edit: Depending on the print shops in your area, you can also get the traditional painting scanned and printed on textured/canvas like paper that can really bring out the work. While it would be a pretty penny depending on the size, it would probably still cost less than paying the artist printing/framing costs AND shipping costs. It depends on your budget I guess!

          All good because funnily enough someone posted in a German Shepherd group I'm in literally a few hours after I made this post here and oh my God she's incredible. I've now ordered through her!

          Hope this is okay to share: https://www.facebook.com/PetraArtOfficial/

          Her dog/cat art is freaking amaaaazing. For anyone else coming here with the same question, deffo worth checking her out.
