Hi guys, :wave:

I thought it would be useful to advise you guys on ways to cash in on your creativity. Below is a few examples of the accessible ways to ensure regular income:

1: Viable PSD templates
You can use your creative talent to design front-end web style templates and distribute them via commercial websites.

2: Make money from post-production retouching
There are a lot of photographers who don’t have the time to do their own post-processing anymore. There’s so much happening with Photoshop that for most it’s going to be hard to become a master at it. They would rather partner with someone to do the retouching and compositing for them.

3: Producing premium stock resources
Designers always need a reliable premium stock resource to deliver high-quality graphics on tight deadlines. Design packs are designed using tools, brushes and effects available in Photoshop. As well as creating stock images, you need to publicise your products. Constant marketing and advertising will offer you greater social media presence.

4: Commerce from competitions and contests
Various sites will offer cash prizes, networking or increase your popularity via competitions.  Most competitions are free to enter.

5: Purchasable apparel through limited runs
Photoshop is one of the best products when it comes to T-shirt design. However, you must have a clear agenda of how to make profit from your wares. Limited runs will stop your designs from becoming oversaturated and will force you to come up with new ideas continuously.

6: Commercial logotypes
Photoshop is an essential tool when creating a logo for a client. Designing an effective logo is not a quick or easy process. It requires research, thought, care and attention to ensure the final logo design targets the correct market and broadcasts the right message.

7: Concept art
Photoshop is extremely popular within the entertainment industry. With the production of one image scattered across various outlets, you’ll obtain a massive amount of exposure.

8: Turning to teaching
Teaching artists can look to gain fees ranging from £150 to £200 per hour. However, before cash is assured there’s plenty of groundwork to be put in. At the beginning you might have to work for free but once people are aware of your capabilities then you can begin to charge for your services.

10: Producing profitable video content
A great way to profit from your Photoshop knowledge is through video tutorials. There are a number of ways to achieve success commercially. There are even some training sites that will allow you to vend your videos in the same way photographers sell their stock images.
 
11: Global crowd sourcing sites
Crowdsourcing sites auction commercial opportunities to specifically skilled creative individuals in a professional and secure environment. With a diverse range of clients actively visiting and uploading to these sites. The most essential assets you’ll need to make money will be time and persistence.

12: Client appeal with unique UI design
With the rise of portable devices, apps have become a huge commodity for digital fans. This of course has created another huge opportunity for web-based designers to make money. UI design now extends to these software applications, with Photoshop driving custom asset creation. If you’re serious about making money from app UI design, then you need to learn about device resolutions. Make sure you’re disciplined when it comes to button and image sizes. There is no point in having pages of information that the user cannot read.

13: Cover artwork commissions
If you can tolerate a fast-paced and competitive environment, you’ll reap the rewards of working in this lucrative editorial-based market with edited styles. In the editorial market they’re only interested in using your skill to produce their idea. This editorial field is small compared to other industries and so repeat business is essential.

There are many other ways but I hope these examples have been helpful to you!

Take care watchers!!! :wave:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Another year has ended and a new one is upon us.

If you haven't seen it then I've made a limited edition calendar for 2016. 

Wall Calendar by Teakster

The calendar has a wide selection of my artwork, so I hope you guys like it! 

I hope this New Year will bring you lots of good things and many moments of happiness. :D

Anyone made any New Year resolutions?!

If so, tell me unless you have broken them already or you can't be bothered. :noes:

I normally don't bother with New Year resolutions, since I don't see the point in them. 

Is there anything that you guys are looking forward in 2016?

I have been on DeviantART for almost 10 years and I would like to think that my work has improved.  I would like to thank my watchers for supporting me over the years and providing me with lots of useful criticism.  It's been a pleasure interacting with you all here! :glomp:

I know that I haven't updated my journal as often but I use Twitter for any quick updates. On that note, come and network with me - twitter.com/teakster 

I am also on Instagram and you can follow me on there.

Take care, people!

Asalaamu alaikum = Peace be upon you! :hug:
