Everyone who sent in their entry by December 21, provided that the entries were complete with all the information required, will receive a personalized copy of the calendar in the mail.Year End/New Year Giveaway!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow, I can't believe I've been a part of deviantART for 7 years! You have all been very kind and wonderful to me, and I feel that it's time for me to give something back. So here's a small giveaway event! I had designed a tiny calendar and it's my sincere wish to mail one out to everyone, but I only have enough material to print 100 copies before the new year comes.
Oh, and here is the aforementioned calendar that may or may not be worth your trouble.
Again, I'm really sorry that my budget only allows for mailing to US addresses right now. I'll try to include everyone else the next time!

10 yearsI just noticed, today is the 10 year anniversary of this Deviantart account. How disturbing and weird. If only I would have taken art seriously for all of those 10 years, but then I would be a completely different person. I haven't changed as much as most... but at least I'm not the same angsty teenager I was when I made this account. The younger me would have expected me to be married with kids and a mortgage by now. The current me expects that to be the case in the next 10 years. Hopefully future me doesn't mess that one up. At least I will count on my future self to be twice as good at art as I currently am... but let's aim for at least three times as good.10 years3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hello everyone. This journal entry is just meant to be a portal to my youtube channel. A continuing project of trying to provide videos relating to the art world, both

A lot of our textures are modeled/sculpted in ZBrush. It's one of the things that makes us unique here.
stop making excuses!i heard many people tell me that they want to make comics, they want to write them they want to draw them... but when i ask them why they don't have samples ready, it is always a barrage of excuses.stop making excuses!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

you go here, you see this video... and you ask yourselves, do you want it hard enough.
this man is a storyteller at heart. his cmic is an intense one, really cool and i recommend it it is available for preorder, a voice in the dark. it is out in november. i don't usually promote stuf, rarely even my own, but i want to promote this because this man deserves it!
so stop looking for excuses, stop trying to find reasons why it cant be done, start working on ways to get it done.

Ania's babysitter fund!Do you like my art? Would you like to own some prints, sketches or original watercolor paintings of mine? (or just to see more art from me in general?) If you've answered yes to any of these questions, then read onAnia's babysitter fund!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The majority of time that I have to work on art, and the reason the pieces that you've seen past few months exist, is thanks to my babysitter. She comes once a week for few hours, and that's when I get to paint. Currently she's looking for another job, and therefore has more time, so I have an opportunity to have her for an extra day. I wanted to alleviate extra cost this would involve, so I thought I'd give it a shot and try to sell my art. Basically it would be an extra $100 per week, and I'd like to try it for a month, so I'm aiming for $400 here. If don't get to the goal, I may still get couple extra days or so. If I get over my goal, I'll be able to carry it over to the next month.
This is by no means

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Sweet SummerWhat Happened?Sweet Summer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Believe it or not, yes I'm still here! Life has been really crazy the past year, and this is why I disappeared from DA. My life has changed so much, from bad to worse and then finally it started getting better and better. I am so at peace and so happy now. Best point of my life in years! And it's all because of God. When you are in serious trouble and have issues beyond your control, it's amazing what kind of miracles happen when you let go and let God intervene. When you lose it all, and have nothing left to cling to in this physical world - not your parents, not your awesome job, not your beloved money, not your fancy house, not your sweet ride, not your beautiful face, not your hot body, not your intelligence, not your connections, not your relationship with your love, not your degree, and not even your own human awesomeness - that's when you finally look up. Sometimes being totally broken is what it takes for us to come to God. My husband

My agenda for the next month and a halfHey, all!My agenda for the next month and a half3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I wanted to give you a heads-up on some personal stuff that's going on with me. I have to take an 18-hour exam mid-May that I need to pass to get my Ph.D. (although I still have to write my dissertation afterwards). It's going to take a lot of time to prepare for that exam. On top of that, I'm in the middle of final exams for classes and working at the same time. So, for now, I am cutting back on some commitments to groups, projects, and such.
I need your help.
Any DD suggestions you can send would be great. I was up until 3 AM scouring dA for some last night, but eventually I had to go to bed. I want to get as many DDs lined up as possible for the months of April and May so I can get through my finals and comprehensive exam without having to worry too much about DDs and just focus on other CV responsibilities as well as my exams. Thanks to those of you who suggest regularly already!

Well this is what I'm currently listening to. Yes I'm a big, BIG fan of Red Army Choir and Ochestra. Their voices deeply move me, they can so amazingly express all feelings, they are breathtaking, majestic, enchanting. I could listen to them for hours, they make me cry, make me smile, make me feel so serene and optimistic.

To those heartless people the meaning of them it isn't important and so i think that they are that ones that should leave deviantart (really don't want to look like a bad person but that kind of people are driving me insane).
The connection with the arts is very beautiful ,the way that the art is made is important but not as the feeling that are inside of it...in fact...that is the artist=a person that can make from all the feelings ,the actions that they have seen into somethings that are capable to show those feelings and tell the story to others...and those somethings are nothing more but the forms of art.
This is what i think and my idea of living with the art as an artist...some of you may agree...some disagree ... but thi
Photomanipulation Legends: Nina-YPhotomanipulation Legends: Nina-Y3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First we learned her bloody method.
Then we learned her other bloody method.
Now, we take a peek at photomanipulation through her eyes.
Who is Nina-Y?
Stylish, inventive, intense, and a bit dark, in a delicious way-- these are words I would use to describe the art of nina-Y. Nina is an Irish photomanipulator and photographer who has been making deviantART more hauntingly beautiful for almost 10 years now. As one of our more senior members, she has set a high mark of excellence in her work that is inspiring to all. Moreover, she is kind and supportive of other artists and a great source of inspiration. Whether serenely beautiful or delightfully jarring, Nina's art demonstrates technical prowess and polish that comes with having spent a great deal of time paying attention to details and careful learning of her craft.
I was honored that she granted us an interview, and I am pleased to present that interview below.

My family has told me I'm seeing my dreams unfold in front of me. All those time staying in my room from when I wake up to when I sleep I stay drawing. They said they couldn't thinking of me without thinking about me drawing at that table in the middle of the night. My cousin has told me all this time drawing is paying off. He hated that I stayed in and I never went out. He told me losing the social life, losing friends on the way, missing out on family meetings and even losing sleep and quiting your job, just so you can draw and this is the results of all that. I almost went into tears but you know him and me are MEN! Haha we have to sta

Commissions!Hey Guys I really hope you give this guy a chance! I will be honored but recently this month, I was working overnight and it really sucked! I was about to hit three years. This job stopped me alot from drawing so there were days I didn't go to sleep just to get drawings and the webcomic done MAN! Anyways, I want to also get my mom her present and help her out with money issues but I can't and I was wondering if you guys would help me out a bit! I will really appreciate it. Some people around me didn't believe this commission thing wouldn't work and I said it will! I'm really looking forward to drawing your characters, or characters you want to seen drawn. The other day I told my mom, all I want to do is draw as my job and when that day comes you don't have to pay one bill.
