For awhile after I get my scanner I will not be able to afford a nice printer.
So. Those of you who sell prints & other merchandise, do you go through websites like dA, Fine Art America, Society 6, Red Bubble? Or dedicated printing services like PictureFrames.com?

I really hate the low commission artists get from "markup" prices.
dA's base value prices are good, but the markup prices are locked and too low. 
They make more money off your art than you do. :/ 

Fine Art America seemed like a good middle ground, but then I read davidewilkinson.com/fine-art-a… and decided Fine Art America might not be all that great...
The thumbnails are too big, watermarks are too small and out of the way, = easy theft.
The comments section in that link there was a few mentions of the website selling artist's work on Amazon without permission, and artists not getting paid after sales.
And fighting with the website to get your art taken down. Poor customer service, etc. 

What have you tried? How well does it work for you?

I love to draw. My preferred subjects are animals/wildlife, I am just as heavily into animal behavior as I am art, particularly with canids. They go hand in hand at times, I love to educate people about animals through my art. My favorite animals are wolves. I love them if you hadn't noticed. ;) I knew they were my favorite animal since the age of three.

I believe most people have something in common with a certain animal individual to that person fitting their personality. So I draw the people in my life as what I imagine their animal to be. I believe that if my soul could take any form it would be that of a wolf.
And I use the wolf to draw strength and wisdom from.
Seeing in this way can teach us many things about ourselves as I have learned.
Despite my strange way of seeing things many wouldnt guess that
I believe in God. I grew up in Christian faith, however I dont know if I
would technically call myself a Christian anymore.
Though my belief in Jesus and God are strong.
I love everyone no matter who or what you are, say, believe, or do.

I've loved to draw since I was very little, though what kid didn't?
I started seriously trying to draw when I was 11 years old after watching an anime called "Inuyasha". The imagination and otherworldly creativity put into it just blew me away and I started drawing the characters. This led me to watching many other anime, like "Wolf's Rain". And attempting to draw the beautifully designed characters over and over. Slowly learning how to draw better and better, I progressed at a relatively good if not, quick pace.
I owe my introduction to art, with the art of Anime and its storytelling.

I had just started shadowing my artwork in 2010 after picking up a book from the library called "How to Draw Real Animals" by Lee Hammond, that taught me how to shade, adding some dimension to my work. And as of June 2013 for the first time I finally took art classes under my teacher Yily at the small "For the Love of Art Studio" close to where I live.
Here is a link to my teacher's gallery aswell as information on the studio: www.yilystudio.com/index.html

My favorite medium is graphite and colored pencils. <3
I use mostly my cheap mechanical pencil, 0.5. My Prismacolor colored pencils, and am practicing with watercolor pencils, watercolor, and pastels.

I usually draw at night, when I know I wont be bothered and can concentrate.
Its always been that way. :)

A special thanks to every person who saw and liked my art on this site before I owned
a scanner and all of my artwork was uploaded in shitty quality, with my shitty camera. :tighthug:
Thanks for looking past the roughness.
And to those who stuck around. :heart:



Current Residence: My imagination...
Favourite style of art: Art that shows a piece of the artist is what makes good art in my opinion.
Shell of choice: Turtle?
Favourite cartoon character: Inuyasha, hands down.
Personal Quote: "Little did you know, you were staring a wolf in the face." ~me

Okay, why link this to me if you don't mind me asking? Not that I mind.
It's just really random. O.o

Um, I agree with the article, wolves are predators and should be respected.
They aren't fluffy cuddly doggies that you can typically walk up to, but they aren't going out looking to gobble up children at bus stops either. Lol. Encounters with wolves resulting in attack as described in your link are extremely, extremely rare.
