This concept of finishing a project daily and rendering it out without over thinking or over judging yourself is by far the best idea I've seen since first day I started interesting in digital art. "One render a day keeps the artist block away" will not be a bold statement since its ease your way out to focus on creating something new everyday without getting bored or overwhelmed too much. It gives you freedom to move on, saves you from the fear of being criticized, gets you... continue reading

The common advice for new and aspiring photographers is to take as many photographs as you possibly can – every day of the week if possible. For many, that means starting on a photo-a-day or 365 project. This is wonderful advice, but I don't necessarily believe that it is limited to beginners only. Even professionals can benefit from something like a photo-a-day project. Especially professionals, since I think that the tendency to become involved in the business side of photography means that... continue reading
There are so many beautiful illustrations now on Dreamstime site that being on the market seems to be difficult.The goal is to put new ideas and new services for art-buyers on our portfolios.Illustrations have to be technically perfect, artistic, pretty, cute (ok, that's because I'm a children illustrator) and professional.And... what?And what's better than complete projects just ready to print?I have finished to illustrate some folktales for children: Little Red Cap, Rumpelstiltskin,... continue reading
hi folksWell when i started with DT i set myself a target, get 50 images accepted, i am pleased that today i successfully crossed that off my to do list, well not really i just added another 50 and now aiming for the round 100. At the same time i was concentrating on keeping a good acceptance ratio but i have to say the past couple of months has been a challenge to meet my goals, small as they may be.Although i have been in photography for some time and done quite a bit... continue reading
Last year I wrote a short entry on how to use creative projects to train your eyes and stay creative. I also mentioned in that entry, that I had plans on taking part in a 52 week creative project where one had to create one image each week for a theme. This entry then is to review this challenge, to tell you what I liked about it and what I became increasingly sceptical about - and why, in consequence I won't do a 52 week challenge this year.Background:I had consciously already decided against... continue reading
How do you keep your creativity flowing? How do you train your eyes to see photographically? I have creative projects that help me with that. I have a few projects going, most of them are long term projects.One project is the "Project Green" where I try to find images where green is the dominant color or the subject. What I found helpful in this project is that I look at the things around me, trying to notice things that are green. There are so many things that are green. While plant images seem... continue reading
I'm happy to end the year with more than 300 downloads!Today I'm sharing this not as a number but as a feeling!For me they are not only photos that I like & I collect but photos that I want them to be alive in my projects in my online curriculum & in my memory!Every photo I downloaded has a meaning & has a space even if it's not showing online! (I used some in prints also)I'm having big expectations in the year 2010... I hope I can bring these expectations to reality! One more thing I... continue reading
Hi all,I Just thought of sharing you this as I was working on a new project & of course DT photos were involved...Most of the times buyers imagine the use of the image before they download it! But the fact is that the photo doesn't always reach the final work for many reasons...1. The final client didn't like it! "Differences make us stronger :))"2. The photo needs much editing & it's easier to get another sometimes! "That doesn't make it ungood photo!"3. Changing of plans... Like... continue reading
Hello there and happy new year to everybody!My holidays are finished and I’m here again, ready to create some new illustrations (I’ve already realized some free-hand sketch).During the holidays I decided to use some new technique, but I don’t want to tell you something more about this decision or about the techniques I’ll use for the next works because I don’t know if these ideas will be accepted by DT. I think you have to read my next posts to understand and/or see!For now I want... continue reading
