Okay, something is starting to bug me more and more... Some of these people who call themselves Dark artists, which BTW I don't, you box yourself in enough with that turn of phrase but all the sudden you have to do it all a cretin way or your just some kind of poser. The beauty in art is the difference and imperfection. So much more we turn on each other to judge and assume. Like that airbrushed, tinker bells bloody bastard step sister type is the only acceptable anymore. My own personal phrasing of this style. Everything else is flawed. I honestly wish this was just us as well. Contests and design challenges and such, who have no prior specifications only seam to ever take notice to this style as well. It seams to have become the uniform now. It makes me sad really. I can and have done this work before but to be all that I ever do... how boring is that?

Yes, I give to the point that there are specific technique to things and therefore ways to do them wrong and right, however that judgment only applies to a piece that the artist themselves have chosen to do in this category... Like the world doesn't already try and sub categorize us enough. We have to help. I plead with you, KEEP AN OPEN MIND WHEN LOOKING AT EACH OTHERS WORK and accept the plural, It is, after all, an artists job, dark or otherwise, to challenge the imagination.

I just joined Deviant as I'm looking for a comic artist for my new website/ blog. This is a paid offer - however I couldn't find a proper sourcing forum on here so here goes.

I'm looking for anyone who is able to produce a few images and one short comic strip punctually (once a week). The work will be steady, paid per image and per strip. Artists already on and crowd sourcing sites would be good.

Please contact me for samples of what I am looking for. (couldn't attach here).
Hi! I'm very interested about your offer. Can I have a samples what style you are looking for? My email:
Also you can look my website though it's under of maintainance:
If you pic me then you get also a graphic designer 'cause that is my job and I can offer you good quality work and knowledge about digital and print world.
I hope you will contact me! :)
Many thanks for requesting my works :glomp:

No probelm :)
Not sure whether I should join, not really looking for work, just a group that will accept my unique take on manipulation ;)
VelmaGiggleWink Nov 29, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
That can work also. It is also to show case some of your work and if you might have some leads for others that would be nice also :)
question is ... would you accept this [link] this is about my normal, and the original photographer has given me permission to request more photo's for manipulation. The problem is that it semms that there are not that many sites willing to display it, it is either too tame or it is too much.

It is what we are looking for... any art of any kind to be displayed for a variety of people to judge it on its merit while at the same to this group itself never passing any negative judgment upon it at all.
