Hello to everybody,
to introduce myself a little bit, I am a student from the Czech republic and I study fashion designing, which is interesting but a bit off, I love animations, illustrations and simply drawing. And Dreamstime is a wonderful place where I can share my passion, be seen and know what selling pictures tastes like.
I heard about Dreamstime from one lady and got really excited and decided to join a few months ago and since then it was really hard to figure out what to submit and how to work with keywords and so on. It is still hard sometimes but I am learning and looking forward to see more downloads.
I tried photos at first but found out that it is really hard with nature and with people - which I would love to submit more portraits - it's hard because even though I love taking pictures of people, there aren't many willing to be seen on public (but still working on this! I will sure have some model release soon) :)
So as I looked through different categories and saw many great illustrations, I decided to submit more of mine.
And it started happening and was alot easier than with photos for me.
When I saw the first download of one of my illustrations I was extremely excited! Then one more and another one and it's really made me smile so much. It is a nice feeling to know that someone likes my pictures so much that they would give out money (even though a little) to have them for them.
I've tried different drawing s and finally came to drawing the way I just normally do which means more cartoony . I love drawing expressions and playing with figures.
One more thing that got me really excited was seeing my little illustration being accepted On assignment. It was just in the last moment and I was like - ...wow... Yes!!:)
Oh well... I'm new to here, a young person without a cent (although.. not anymore) and I think it will take me a while before I cool down and get used to how it all works here:)
Thank you Dreamstime!:D
