    When is "enough" too much?
    by Ed_L
    Blacknight is considering making digital art from photos as a business venture. He is also considering art/craft fairs as a place to sell from. This brings up a question. If someone were to do that, how many different styles of digital art would be a good number to offer? It seems to reason that if...

    But is it "Art"? (part II)
    by Doug Nelson
    A recent conversation with a friend got me thinking about this subject again. I knew there was an excellent thread on this subject here already so I looked it up. Though it's still one of my favorite threads, it was concentrating on the commercial aspects (it's over in the Work/Jobs forum if you're...

    How much should I charge for my art?
    by DannyRaphael
    In another digital art forum a common question popped up again, "How much should I charge for my art?"

    I thought following response by John Shiflet was well written and sought (and received) his permission to reproduce it here at RetouchPRO.

    John has considerable...

  • I can't decide

    I can't decide whether the standard of my photo art is worthy of a gallery, am I classed an an artist or am I cheating? I love working with images and spend hours and hours creating and tweeking photos turning them into works of art, but still I am confused as to where I stand in the art world. I have received countless responses from galleries, saying that they will keep my details on file, but that my work isn't currently suitable etc.
    I would love some good, honest feedback - - 'art prints'.
    Thank you

    All artists suffer self doubt.

    I think your work is 'good enough' but what you lack is a cohesive body of work. What I saw immediately what that there was a confusing jumble of styles and techniques.

    If I were you I'd look at your finished work and choose 12-20 that have a common style -- like your pieces with a white background that looks like illustrations. Then approach galleries with a small manageable portfolio that reflects just only one style.

    Good luck!
