  1. I'm rather fond of the Dutch masters, being a Dutchman myself. It's a cliché choice but Vincent van Gogh will always have a special place in my heart.
  2. Author intro

    Hello, James! Welcome to the ArtByte community. It's cool to see a writer here, though I have trouble with horror stories (basically, I'm a scaredy-cat). Even so, be sure to post some of your work in the artist listing subforum to make it official!
  3. Didn't Make The Cut

    This is a good idea, but I always end up thinking too big and end up having to give up due to the sheer scale of my idea or hire a team (which I don't have the finances for).
  4. Hello Art Byters

    Hey, Ray! Welcome to the ArtByte community, it's good to see you. I see you've made your portfolio on Weebly, just like me. Remember to also share your work in an artist listing post.
  5. 'Jelly Jellies' Mobile Game

    Once it releases in June, you can try it on your phone for free. I think you might just change your mind if you give it a chance! Hey, thanks! I'm really looking forward to the big release.
  6. Attachment limits

    Yeah, it's easiest to link to images on other domains. I understand you might want more options from an art oriented community, but maybe that's something to think about for the future. Allowing unlimited image posting would really strain the servers, you know!
  7. Intro 2

    Welcome to the community, Trimmertop! Don't forget to also put your wallet address in your profile.
  8. Very beautiful work! The way that first piece fades out near the edges gives it such an ethereal, dreamlike feeling. But those black and white pieces are also all masterful; the wave of bricks and the hill cut like bread, it manages to say so much just by showing us every day sights in a different light.
  9. I think there is a strong relationship between immersion and realism. A world doesn't need to reflect reality entirely, but it certainly needs a similar authenticity. I've seen a lot of Second Life avatars that follow that line of thought, but I've also seen my share of people using the image of popular characters or just bizarre appearances.
  10. I'm here

    Hey there, TwistedCheshire! Welcome to the ArtByte community. If you feel up to it, please share your watercolor work in an artist listing post. I'd love to see it!
  11. Hello from a Virtual World Explorer!

    Hey, Strawberry! Welcome to the ArtByte community, it's great to have you here. I think there's a very promising future in ArtByte - Second Life cooperation. I can't wait to see more work from you in the future!
  12. Didn't Make The Cut

    The life of a freelance artist can be pretty tough - even getting people to take you seriously and agree to let you do paid work can be a huge hurdle. But it's not the companies and projects that never respond that really bring me down, but the ones that I almost get to be part of, only to find that I just barely wasn't good enough. I've had projects where they were interviewing several artists, and I was interviewed, but in the end, they went with a different artist. That kind of dismissal really stings - you get so close to finding something that'll help you pay the bills, only to find that you missed it by a hair. How do you guys deal with rejections from jobs and projects like that? Where you were so sure you could be a part of it and get some paid work, but then it turns out you were wrong?
  13. Stages of Human Life

    Hey, thank you! It makes me happy my vector art impresses you! I've found that working with vectors is a huge help for clients that need stuff printed, but it's a lot of work to get that same organic look my drawings have.
  14. Setas Acuarelas

    The image in your first post looks broken, which is a shame, because the project sounds interesting. The best way to share images is by just posting an external link.
  15. Chameleon Logo Design

    Ooh, I really like the chameleon logo. Well done! Red and green is a pretty unorthodox combination for designs (with the exception of Christmas cards).
