Artist Alley 101: Things to Consider/ResourcesHello everyone! Welcome to the 4th and final part of my Artist Alley tutorial!
This is meant to be a good start for those who have never been a part of an artist alley before, as well as a nice refresher to those of you who are veterans of alleys everywhere! I will try to be as detailed as possible, but make the information easy to reference and read through!
Hope you enjoy, and feedback is definitely appreciated! Let me know your thoughts, reactions, some of your own alley stories, as well as if you have any suggestions to add to this tutorial! I definitely haven't thought of everything, so if you had new ideas to share, I'd love to hear them!

Tumblr, Drawcrowd, BlogspotHey everyone, since CGhub closed down on me when I barely just joined... I'll be moving to some now art spots. Tumblr was one that many people requested I join. I also joined DrawCrowd, but I will mostly be sticking with Blogspot and Deviantart.
As many of you know, I stopped submitting as much art as I used to, and my style has differed. I hope to put the time I have into creating more detailed art, so quality over quantity! I also feel I should expand my reaches and test out other art sites. I will mostly be posting my progresses on Blogspot, occassionally on Tumblr. My Deviantart and DrawCrowd will only be for finished pieces. I hope Blogspot and Tumblr makes up a little for all those who have asked me for tutorials.

Art advicesHi guys,
I'm just writing this journal to share Joe Madureira's art advices which I came across today, and found very useful.
Yeah he was the one who gave out these advices, not me, but I've been asked about this a lot, and he just spoke my opinions in a very well worded way, so I think I'd better share with you. :"D
It's very long, but it will definitely help if you guys want/need REAL advices. So, ejoy the reading! :"D
Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=638969436116482&id=157043750975722

Anyway if you still want a more straightforward way of speaking, and more opinions from me, you can check out my F.A.Q. journal. I linked a journal to an interview of mine there, in the Sharing section. ^_^
Hope these will help you guys, cheers! ^^

Digital Art vs Traditional ArtFollowing the article I wrote for ArtHistoryProject Digital Art - Why it's such a popular medium I wanted to bring to you another topic for discussion. It has been a prevailing topic for a while now around the internet and amongst community members in respects to Digital Art and Traditional Art.
Digital Art: is a general term for a range of artistic works and practices that use digital technology as an essential part of the creative and/or presentation process.
Traditional Art: refers to fine arts that use the old methods for creating artwork, such as pens, brushes, clay and other tools. Although traditional arts has different techniques than digital arts, but in fact, the different forms of art are all related to each other by the same concept, which also involves digital arts.
