We're sponsoring Artists' Alley 2012!



We're headed to Comic-Con International:
San Diego to sponsor Artists' Alley!























We Love Artists' Alley










We're back at Comic-Con!


Last year, our sponsorship of Artists' Alley was a huge success. We were able to provide a more comfortable environment for the artists, display their art on huge screens over the Alley, and let people attending the convention draw with deviantART muro on fantastic digital screens. We plan to do this and more in 2012 as we take on the great pleasure of sponsoring Artists' Alley at San Diego Comic-Con again.
















Six deviant scholarships


We increased our number of scholarships from two to six this year, and have chosen our talented recipients. These six amazing deviants submitted their Portfolios to the Comic-Con group and have been chosen by DeevElliott to showcase their work in Artists' Alley. Each scholarship recipient will be able to display their work in the Alley and receive critique from top industry professionals.

Five Kick Ass Panels










DeviantART is hosting five panels, discussing important art-related topics with extraordinary guest panelists. We'll even be giving away deviantART swag!


Comic-Con Panel by ~GreenifyME





Supercharge your deviantART profile like the masters.


AdamWarren, DeevElliott, Zubby, alohalilo, diablo2003, and yuumei are among the superstar deviants on this panel, moderated by our very own spyed. They'll be sharing how to optimize your deviantART profile like a pro. (Saturday, July 14th from noon - 1 PM)




:iconadamwarren:, :icondeevelliott:, :iconzubby:, :iconalohalilo:, :icondiablo2003: :iconyuumei:





How to examine fan art under the law: a counter-cultural disconnect?


Featuring our very own makepictures, this presentation discusses the legalities surrounding fan art and includes a review of the impact of new technologies on the genre and the confessions of a fan art fanatic. (Friday, July 13th from noon - 1 PM)





Living and creating in the deviantART world.


yuumei is here to show you how easy it is to get started sharing your art, finding inspiration, making new discoveries, and establishing yourself in the world of deviantART. (Thursday, July 12th from 3 - 4 PM)





How to better understand the sociology behind cosplay.


Join veteran cosplayer, Yaya Han, aka yayacosplay, for a stimulating discussion about the many social aspects of cosplay. Yaya will answer a number of questions, including: Why do we cosplay? How has cosplay progressed in the last 10 years and what are the positive and negative aspects? (Thursday, July 12th from noon - 1 PM)





Don't break in, break out!


DeviantART offers the world different publishing perspectives for content creators. Deviants DeevElliott, MrBabyTattoo and yuumei discuss the future for creators and publishers with techgnotic. (Thursday, July 12th from 4 - 5 PM)










Cosplay Forever




We're hosting a cosplay art show that takes place from Thursday - Saturday, upstairs near the autograph area. This collection of the best and the brightest of cosplay comes from over 15,000 submissions to deviantART. The prints will be available through a silent auction with bids starting at $10. All proceeds will go to the Schreiner Burn Hospital, which uses cosplayers to cheer up patients in the hospital.


We are also having a cosplay group photo. Every cosplayer at Comic-Con is welcomed to join our epic display of cosplay at its finest. Join us on Friday, July 13th at 4PM on the Convention Center roof. If you want to be a part of this, be sure to follow our deviantART Twitter to get the latest updates.











We'll be hosting a deviantART Benefit Art Show featuring cosplay photography and donating the proceeds.

About Comic-Con

Comic-Con International: San Diego is the largest comic book and popular arts convention in the world.

Every year, San Diego Comic-Con hosts a gallery of artists in what's known as Artists' Alley. For the second year in a row, it's with great honor that we can announce deviantART is sponsoring the Alley! We're also paying the way for six emerging artists to attend, hosting five interactive panels, and hosting a cosplay photography silent auction. Read on for all the exciting details.

God damn it! Why don't host these damn things a little closer to where I live?
At least host this in either Omaha NE, Lincoln NE, or even Council Bluffs IA. Don't tell me that your hosting the next DA related event in Dallas, Huston, Kansans City, San Diego, San Fransisco, or even Denver. I'm fucking not going to be able to attend them otherwise because they're too long, too expensive to drive, and of a fucking trip if I have to drive more than a 100 miles to to go to that lasts less than what the trip was worth coming for. This isn't fair for the rest of us who don't live in populous areas!

I'm on strike!

What questions would you want to ask and what answers would like to hear? Do you feel awkward in terms of potential legal interference with any fan art activities you may engage in? Do have a cool fan art image you'd like included somewhere in the presentation?

Well, I entered and made a portfolio, but I guess they thought I wasn't worth it, because I'm poor and don't have all those fancy-smancy programs that enhance things... :/
Reply
:iconsavagefrog:
SavageFrog Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's not about being poor or having programs, all the selected participants are professional artists with extremely detailed portfolios that most likely took years to make; it's a product of hardwork & talent not software-the materials that anyone uses is at their own discression.

They're at Comic-con to work, not go on a vacation.

Ask yourself: if you had won,what would you have done at the convention, what would you be selling? How would you pay for your prints? What appeals to people in general? Would people buy them?

SavageFrog Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a mixed bag but mainly talented (artists regardless of their medium of choice & who show great perserverance) succeed in the long run.

If you want people to read your work (& I noticed that you were making a comic & probably refering to that), you have consider their tastes (certain themes are more popular than others), your writing methods (too many grammar errors detract interest, narrative, characters-are they relatable, etc. & too much or lack of dialogue will cause more problems/wane of interest)& art in general (if it's a serious subject, people prefer more detailed works while comedy gets away with less detail/attention to anatomy).You're competing against 20 million or so users here-most of which have their own works as well-it's your job as the creator to compel people to actually read it.

Learn from other artists to see how they do it & don't use excuses to limit yourself.

Actually, I couldn't agree more with that statement of yours. If there is a more unjust website, its deviantart. No matter what DA staff says, you have to have money to get anywhere on this site. You have to have money in order to attend any of the DA conventions since they always host them so far away from everyone's homes so everyone has to buy a plane ticket or drive a long way to attend one. It's impossible to get a deviantart daily feature, let alone a feature on DA's front page which is almost always reserved fir premium membership. You have to work your ass off to get some recognition fir your artwork or to even become somewhat well-known artist. If all draw is realism or semi-realism or even vehicles and your art style does not contain digitally manipulated/drawn subjects on CS5 or with expensive Prisma Color colored pencils/markers or even drawn Japanese anime/manga fan art, boobs, yaoi/yuri or your art does not contain anime/manga style; then you're basically hosed. Oh yeah, and if you do artisian crafts that are not related to making Pokemon pushies, you're also screwed. I swear, you almost have to either pay someone under the table or sell yourself to prostitution... okay maybe I'm getting a little too extreme with that last part of that sentence, but you get my point. At all given times you have to shell out 'the dough' to get anywhere with this website.

I swear the digital and anime style chokes up the airways making it impossible fir the rest of us lesser known quality artists.
