The difference between Vector and Vexel ArtAfter writing my first article on an introduction to getting into vexel and vector art, a question was raised to do with the differences between the art forms.
I guess being so engrossed with the art forms for over 6 years now, I've taken my knowledge for granted. It's typical of any artist in most genres. What knowledge and skill set we have is second nature. So my second article, I'd like to show and explain you the differences between Vexel and Vector art. So I present to you, the dummies guide to the difference between vexel and vector art!
Looking straight at the work, it's hard to tell the difference between a skillfully created vexel and a vector. This is because they are not a style of art, but a medium of art.
When we say a "medium" we mean with how a piece of art is created or what with. For instance we have both traditional and digital paintings. A traditional painting is created with, for example,

Art Theft: your [copy] right and responsibility!People are often concerned with online art theft and it's usually one the main reason artists are nervous about posting their artwork online: "What if someone steals my work and claims it as their own?" Worse still, "What if they sell it and make money from my work?" Whether its for profit or not is beside the point; our hard work and creativity means a lot to all of us, and to have someone simply save our image and post it as their own work often feels like a slap in the face.
deviantART is a big place, and with nearly 45 million deviations (at the time this news article was posted), its an easy target for art theft. Often, you wont know your work is stolen, and if you do it's often too late; sometimes still, there's little you can do about having it removed from the grips of whoever stole it. While it is your right to demand protection for your work and websites to remove illegally displayed art work, its also imp
Comms ON HOLD, Waitlist OPENWrite me a NOTE about commissions and wait list!
PLEASE READ BEFORE COMMISSIONS:
Please try to write clearer what you really want to see in your commission (it's always hard to redraw a lot of details that you could inform me earlier);
If you don't know how to describe - give me more visual refs (images);
I don't work with deadlines! (Be patient please, arts takes time). But no too long: 3-4 weeks max! ;
If you're not sure in my level - don't need to commission me, seriously, I'm not a high level artist;
These simple rules always saves&
Magazines and Journals looking for your work.I have compiled a brief list of Magazines and Journals that accept unsolicited submissions from writers and artists of varying levels of experience.
What unsolicited means is that you may send them your work without being asked for it first. Also, if you just follow their submission guidelines, there is typically no need for a cover letter either. If you would still like to include a cover letter, please make sure it is concise and professional.
The publications listed accept everything from Poetry to Fiction to Visual Artwork.
I hope this helps some of you become a little more knowledgeable about the industry and pushes you to just take the leap and submit your work. You never know until you try.
One last note: Most magazines and journals do not accept simultaneous submissions. What that means is that you must only submit your piece to one publication at a time. It is a waiting game to hear back from them, b
Non-Existent - An ASCII/ANSI contestI've held two ASCII art contests in the past and there have been plenty of interesting entries, but this time the contest will be bigger and also accept ANSI entries. Even if you have never made ASCII art before, I encourage you to participate. Take the contest as a challenge and don't think you don't stand a chance. The winners of my first ASCII contest hardly had any previous experience with ASCII art.
So what are these ASCII and ANSI things?
Basically, ASCII art is the kind of text art you could create in Notepad or in a typewriter. The characters are equally wide and spaced, as if they were placed in an invisible grid. ASCII can be colored, but it is usually in black and white.

ANSI art is a very specific artform, heavily relying on its restricted medium, the ANS

Splash of Colors... feature 5And here's another feature. I didn't do these series in a while... but since life keeps throwing lemons at my face that right now I can't keep up with making lemonades, I just better do something what I haven't in a while. Here you have a couple of featured works by amazing artists, so be sure to check them out.
TUTORIALS AND BRUSHES... COMMISSIONS
And I finally opened a new page on my official site valentinaremenar.com ...So now you can find all my tutorials in one place and I even shared brushes with which I paint my works, also my own ones which I created for my realistic drawings. You can see and download them all here.
And I thought to open commissions this month, but I probably won't be able to do it cause of health issues. I'll announce when I open them, hopefully soon...when I'll be able to sit more. Till then...you'll find me making lemonades.
DAM your photosNo disrespect intended...
Digital Asset Management (DAM)is a tool you should learn about.
I want to present two basic ideas, in 3 simple steps (and tips), to help you manage your photography work better. The first is managing you work on you computer (organizing it), and the second is the keywords and tags you add to it when submitting your work on-line.
A few words of introduction first. If you are a starting photographer, this is very important for you. The experienced ones will find it hard to Re-manage all the work they have done, and they probably have a system they work with (working, or not). However, if you are starting now to accumulate your photographs and submitting it on-line, this is essential for you, and easier to do.
Shell we begin?
1. Managing your photographs
This simple method is based on dates and places. The steps are all centered on creating a folder structure organized around the dates and places you took the pictures on.
