This is why you (and your art) get ignored.
People often get the sense of being ignored in the art-scene, especially here online. We all try so hard to get our foot in the door, it's like trying to stuff yourself in an overfull bus like a sardine in a can.
Sometimes you just want to socialize with other artists you admire and you seem to be talking into a brick wall or perhaps you've send your portfolio to a company over a dozen times and still don't even seem to get the smallest response or feedback. I will try and tell you WHY you get ignored and HOW you can get noticed instead.
I will go through the following cases of being ignored:
:bulletgreen: Your comment.
:bulletgreen: Your art.
:bulletgreen: Your Portfolio.
:bulletyellow: Do know, that even though being ignored feels very personal it's hardly ever personal at all! 
:bulletblue: Your comment(s) gets ignored.
It happens ever so often. You notice an artwork or a discussion and you weigh in with your opinion or admiration, perhaps even some feedback? T

Tutorial - Daz Simple 1-Light Lighting + Presets
I've beens asked to explain my lighting by a couple of folks, so here's a quick and easy guide. Hope it helps.
When I work in a photography studio I tend to work simply – single lightsource most of the time, sometimes with a little bit of fill light. Its quick, easy and gives good results, so here is the Daz Studio version
Some basic stuff for controlling lighting
Assuming a constant power of light - the closer the light-source the brighter it will be and the softer the shadows. The further away, the dimmer it will be and the harder the shadows. Easy, right? In a camera we adjust exposure using f-stop and/or shutter speed - which you can do in the render settings in Daz. However the easiest way is to increase and decrease the power output of the light-source.
Make sure that your render settings are set to Scene only. Although you can mix HDRi with these lights, for this purpose, you want it off.
Make sure that the camera you are using has the

Reality Artist Spotlight ~ArtXtreme101
September Artist Spotlight is ~ArtXtreme101 we are happy to share some insights of the person behind the art.  
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
My name is Eli and I am a seventeen year old high school student. I am absolutely in love with portrait photography and digital art! On the side, I do some drawing and painting and I love anything artistic. I am mostly self taught, but I love when people give me constructive criticism that can help me grow as an artist.
How long now have you been involved in digital art?
I have been involved in digital art for almost two and a half years now. When I first got DAZ Studio I was at a fairly young age (around 15). Back then I didn't know anything about digital art, so I did some work with DAZ Studio, but then kinda fell away from it for couple months. After seeing some inspiring renders online, I decided to take it up again. When the Reality Plug-in came out, I really became involved in digital art because I like making 3d a
