Muhaha, I am back from Berlin - it was AWESOME trip!
Thank you all for journey advices - we finally decided to not buy a sticker, to park our cars as close to the center as possible and to get to the hotel by underground. We in fact had no clue where to park or where to even leave a highway, but it somehow happened that we accidentaly left the car on the best place, which was really right next to the beginning of "eko" zone and just next to the tube station of the line which got us directly to the hotel. Yay!
The first thing I saw after getting out of the underground area was... CHECKPOINT CHARLIE!
One of the things I REALLY wanted to see in my life
And even our hotel was on a street, which used to be divided by Berlin wall! The remains were still lying just few metres from the hotel! Just AWESOME, AWEEEEEESSSOOMMMEEEE!
It really meant a lot for me.
I wonder if YOU know about Berlin wall and so...?
I think I will write a report about it next time

"E" is still not working properly :/
But I have to say that the last art-thief who told ME whole made up story about how she took a photo, which in fact belongs to me, totally cracked me up it was just soooo funny that I even could not report her she gave me such a good laugh, that I am almost GRATEFUL to her! I wish all art-thieves here on dA would be so stupid and funny hahaha!
Also, one thing really pleased me - I had my public transport ticket on the table. As I always pay for three months, I have to have an ID card with a photo of me. This small ID photo was taken in spring 2011. Next to this card, I had a little pack of another "ID" photos I got for my driving licence. Those photos were taken some week ago, so spring 2012.
I just took 2011 ID photo and compared it with 2012 ID photo.
People, I just gazed at a result!!!
There is SUCH a difference...
In 2011, with all that fat, I looked so much older, my face was just pig-pink and round ball wi

Oh my, I am so tired, as I am not used to move that much XD so that everyday's excercising makes me sleep until 1 or 2 PM XD well, I should mention that I go to bed at 5 AM or so, but still, that's a LOT of sleeping!
Hurray, lions! This journal is dedicated to Svenimal and amrodel, who love lions
There is a family of Barbary lions Lily and imon and their cubs Mark and Éta and there are two adult females Gina and Buzeta, who are imon's sisters and who inhabit neighbouring exhibit I like imon, he is wonderful young male with amazing dark and huge mane, but he is also very gentle and patient father and protective partner
All photos were taken in ZOO Olomouc yesterday.

Haha, my family went shopping and they brough me some new trousers - next time they had to went to that shop again, because I needed smaller size
I do not know if it is possible, but it seems my feet are smaller too I used to have size 38, but now I need to have 37 when I buy new shoes. I would welcome size 37,5, it would be fitting. Interesting!
Now I get back to work!
I am not a fan of B&W animal photos, but for a change......

Today I had a special little trip with my friend Kajula: in my city, quite close to my home, there is the biggest habitat of Pulsatilla grandis in whole Europe. Pulsatilla grandis is a wonderful spring flower, which is somehow fluffy, mysterious and also very poisonous. This location is very well-known and people always visit it in spring, admiring some 55 000 of flowers which grow very close to normal city buildings in a very tiny and steppe preserve. I have always missed it and I have never been there. So finally, this year I went there and I was just happy about all the beauty around me. I want to share some shots
And finally, there is some thief who posts computer sample images - http://beautifulnorthwolves.deviantart.com/gallery/ reporting (not flaming) can help

I am really stressed now - I study so much but I do not remember anything
Those texts are so complicated that when I finish reading, I am not able to say what it was about
And those are some 6 000 pages!
I feel really uneasy about it. I have no time to learn that!
Also, this winter is so bad when it comes to snow
I am really happy I took many photos of wolves on snow last year, because it seems that winter 2011/12 will not offer any nice photo oportunity. There is NO snow here only on mountains, but not here. I love snow, so it makes me sad
Well, time for new Kiriban!

Ok, ok, ok, I am almost scared - what happaned? It seems that this site is totally empty for last week!
I wonder what caused this: Sandy? Or do Americans have some Halloween holiday so they are not online? Or... is there some secret and slow Zombie attack?
Of course dA decided to use this time to announce free shipping usually they do it before Christmas and I usually get pretty nice money from it. This time I got just few dolars, so I hope dA will repeat the action - just before X-mas as they did the last year. Because this site really seems to be empty now! as a response to a free shipping, I released Free calendar for 2013 - I think I have never had so few faves, views and downloads on it. What a pity, what a bad time
I know about Sandy, it was covered by Czech media a lot
Poor people, I hope everything will be fixed as soon as possible. I did not know it affected so many people
You also know I asked you to vote for Allerlei's photo - thank you

Last Sunday I had a great trip with our philosophy school, my cousin and his wife (I love them both deeply) are members too, so it was fun. We also learned some self-defence tricks, but I totally failed when we were about to use them in real life, practising the application XD but when we finished, my cousin decided to leave the group - we went to the shooting range. My cousin owns a small-bore rifle and let me use it, we were shooting at tiny targets made of plaster. And to my shock, I was pretty good at it! I really enjoyed it and I hope my cousin will allow me to join him in future. Because it was awesome!
I suppose there might be final decision for travelling dolphin show in Prague next week - you will be informed!
But I have to say I am so
Our president died... + white lions & co. - PHHello.Our president died... + white lions & co. - PH3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many people not only in the Czech republic are sad, because Václav Havel died today.
Václav Havel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V%C3%A1clav_Havel) was the first president of the Czech republic and nowadays, he was probably the most respected Czech in the world. He was inspiration for many people, he influenced lot of lives. He was not only a politician, but also a writer, philosopher, human right activist and political prisoner. As every strong person with constant opinions, he also had his opponents. To be honest, I was one of them. Although I did not share most of his opinions, although I did not find many his actions right and although he was not a moral example for me, I still respect him and I regret his death. I will never forget, that he fought against totalitarian communist regime in my country and I will be always grateful, that also thanks to him, we are now free modern democratic country with strong relationship with rest of democratic world.

Haha. Here comes ZOO Photos under those photos, there are some news about me. Because they are mostly about my "losing weight attempts", I do not want to bother those who are not interested, so I better put it under photos
I am probably going crazy
I have always said that those, who think that persons suffering from anorexia are just stupid, simply do not know even basics of human psychology. Anorexia is very serious psychical problem. But now I need to say I understand those poor ill persons even more - as I am trying to lose weight, two days without exercising are enough to make me feel not only guilty, but also misserable. I literally feel like my stomach and butt are growing, I immediately feel like being too fat to wear my clothes. I know it is not true and that

Recasting and counterfeited dollsLately, the recast issue is becoming a real subject of concern for me. I've seen people on flickr congratulate each other for the beauty of their recasted dolls and openly talking about the ones they were about to buy : I received messages of threats and insults when I pointed out that this was both illegal and immoral. I wondered if I had somehow stepped through the looking glass and now up was down and right was wrong !Recasting and counterfeited dolls3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A few days ago, a fellow french doll artist, Lilycat (check her work, she's great), discovered thanks to one of her clients a whole facebook group dedicated to recasting her creations. She's taking care of it like the professional she is, through legal actions. But that doesn't make it okay. This is a SERIOUS issue.
Creating dolls is difficult and time consuming. For my own first prototype, I spent more than 300 hours sculpting, sanding, piercing... Which means that when I sell one doll, I get about 1.10€ per hour. And that doesn't even take into account the mo

She's not finished yet, I've still got some hand stitching to do and I'm going to try to make her a tiny magnetic apple too.
She's about 8 inches tall. Her wings and tail are wired so they are posable. Her iris' are done with blacklight thread, so they glow brightly under a blacklight (though I haven't tested it yet). Her hair is made from soft high quality faux fur.
I'll probably have her finished tonight and will take the best offer within the next few days.
Inspirational Journal: Why to Keep TryingThis is sort of a response to a few events that happened around dA lately. I'm not singling anyone out, I'm just expressing my thoughts and hopefully putting some positive energy back into the community.Inspirational Journal: Why to Keep Trying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here it is. Popularity is a big issue in the art world, as is expected. When you're popular, you get more people knowing who you are, and when more people know who you are, you have a better chance to sell your work and for higher prices. Simply because your name is well known for that thing you do.
I notice alot of people out there right now racing to be the first to do something, to claim that little slice of originality to put their name on. And once that "first" has been taken...alot of artists are seeming to just drop off, back down, and say "well if I can't be first, then why bother trying? I'll never be well known as a runner up." This is just..plain wrong. The person to do something first, (whether it be creating an idea or design, or becoming liked/noticed out of a group of
Love of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOSHelloLove of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, kiriban (766 666) is VERY close!
At second, Brno's females, Alex and Clair, are in heat now. I went to the ZOO to take some photos - because of mating season, wolves were very excited and active. I had a great chance to watch their fantastic and natural behavior, which included gentle touches, aggresivity (not between alphas and beta, but younger wolves were somehow excited) and mating itself. It was just incredible to observe so intimate moments of the lives of wolves. Thanks to winter, I was totally alone with them - only me and wolves. I would like to share some shots I took - sorry for lower quality, the weather was cloudy and as you can imagine, wolves were moving a lot. Although I took some photos of mating itself, I do not want to post such shots. Not to offend some of my watchers (mating and also eating are absolutely natural for animals ) but to somehow respect privacy of the wolves
Thank you for every it would help me to share this

Sashafras I mean this. Seriously. This. Just the thumbnail is impressive, but when you come up close, the dragon moves. And not just like.... blinks. Actually breathes fire and turns his head. Mind blown.
Besides the dragon, this was rather obviously a very high effort piece for you. I love how you included humans and shaded everything, not to mention included an actual background that fits the scene. The story was a nice touch too, but what really won me over besides the animation were the tacks you designed for the three of them. I'd love to keep the tacks for these horses if that's okay

Commissions and Private Sales:
*I do not do commissions or private sales.
*I do not plan to do commissions or private sales in the near future.
*I do not know what one might cost, IF I did do commissions or private sales.
Although commissions work very well for most crafters, they do not work well for me. I operate in a way that is contrary to most plushie makers. Usually, the goal is to get through the frustrating tedium of figuring out patterns to then enjoy the reward of more easily producing multiple plushies. For me, the reward is figuring out the patterns, and the frustrating tedium is having to more easily produce multiple copies of the same product. Once I have solved the

I sleep and sleep and sleep. I do not know why, because even before exams, I slept quite a lot (I can sleep 2 hours a day, but I slept like 7, which is luxury). Mum says it is caused by nerves I had before those exams. Maybe - I have already had three dreams about me failing at those tests
About the journal's title: yeah, I am angry.
Through Facebook, I found some new way how to find out images on the web.
I used URL of few of my photos to try it.
And I found out that my photos are literally EVERYWHERE on the web.
Often with cropped signature, so nobody can see link to my original anymore. They are posted without any credit.
That's annoying, people. I mean REALLY annoying.
And the worst thing I found at least TWO websites, which offer my calendar! The one I made for you for free. They simply downloaded my original and offered every single page of my calendar on their site. One of them at least l
