I really need to upload a deviantID. . .
than an artist who won't help a beginner or even answer a question as simple as "What do you use?". It honestly bugs me to no end, especially when they don't have the information someone wants to know in the description. If you don't say "I use such-and-such brand of such-and-such" or something similar in that description you better be bloody prepared to answer that question when someone asks.

For crying out loud, it's only decent that you answer someone's question about something basic like that. You don't have to go into a detailed explanation of how exactly you do what you do, but at least tell them what you use to do it. If you get the same sort of questions over and over again, I understand that it gets tedious to answer them all. Make a FAQ in your journal and pin it to your profile, problem (mostly) solved.

I personally am by no means an expert at anything I do but I'm willing to answer any questions someone has. Beginners shouldn't be discouraged when it comes to asking a talented artist how they do what they do; they shouldn't be intimidated. Sometimes I think that those talented artists need to be smacked. With a brick.

You people do remember when you were a beginner, right? Despite what some of you may believe, you weren't born a fabulous artist. You had to learn just like the rest of us and I'm sure you got help from somewhere, even if it was just a web tutorial. So be nice and help a beginner. And answer people's bloody questions once in awhile.

Thank you for moving my image.

I shall try to master the process-- the correct way.

I am brand-new ( returning after 4 years) and D-A has dramatically changed its interface in several ways.

I'm learning!

Your friend,

Ah, yes, dA seems to change daily.

When the box pops up to submit a work you can select the folder you want to submit it to up in the right hand corner. It'll say "Submitting to" and (for our group) the photography folder is selected by default but you can click the drop-down menu and pick any of the others.

Hope that helps. :)
