I will retouch a portrait. Retouching will include editing colors and tones of the photo, adjusting lighting, adjusting and accentuating facial and body features, adjusting focus of the photo, fixing hair and makeup, removing distracting elements of the photo, etc.

Please include your photograph in the Commission request. If you have specific requests, please let me know, otherwise I will use my discretion.


In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

deviantART is at Comic-Con!

    DeviantART is at Comic-Con -- right now!  Every year, Comic-Con International: San Diego hosts a huge gallery of artists in what's known as Artists' Alley, and we couldn't be more excited to sponsor the Alley for the fourth year in a row.  Our aim has always been to keep focus on those who not only make the entire convention possible, but provide us with a world of entertainment across all media: the artists.

    At Comic-Con? View our list of panels.

    Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with all of our Comic-Con happenings!

    PURPLESKULL99 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2014  Student Photographer this person has nothing constructive going on in his page. He is just insulting people into replying to him. Please give him at least a warning as I can not stand or tolerate his insults anymore. Check his videos as that is where he is being insulting.

    One question I have, when comments are featured, does the poster of the comment get notified?

    hey can you confirm if this is true
    As of May the twenty first, deviantART will be deleting ALL  dA accounts. Not the plz accounts though. But just all name-wasted accounts, or accounts that we think are fake, or that are useless. We are doing this to prevent something that could possibly may happen in the future. If we find this message on you're deviantID, journal, etc. We will know that you are not a fake. 

    Thank you for listening,

    -deviantART staff
