2012 + 1000 Watchers + Some Traditional WizardsHi!
We survived Y2K, Bird flu, crazy cows, 11-S, earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear disasters, global warming, crisis, end of the world few times...
C'mon, 2012... Let's see if you have balls!
I realized that I passed 1000 watchers, that must be a joke! I mean, there are 1000 users that can have interest in whatever I may pump it up, you don't know how grateful I am and how helpful is your support to me.
I want to leave you with some magicians, they have the privilege to own magical pencils, erasers, tortillions, paintbrushes, sheets, canvas... and hands. Maybe some are a bit crazy, but support them!

FAQWhat pencils and supplies do you most often use? (Including coloured pencils )FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For graphite drawings I use a fairly basic set of tools and I do have preferred brands. I mainly use Tombow Mono 100 pencils, Tombow Mono Zero Erasers, Blu-Tack (instead of a kneaded eraser), Tortillions, colour shaper and Tissue if I'm blending. I mainly use a smooth plate finish paper for graphite drawings, my preferred brand is Mellotex, but I also use Winsor and Newton Extra Smooth Bristol board. My essential kit is here http://pbird12.deviantart.com/gallery/30897635#/d5euwgp it's not exhaustive, but it's what I use most of all.
For coloured pencil drawings I use Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and Blu-Tack and occasionally a touch of white acrylic for highlights if I've lost them in the colouring process. I like a Hot Pressed Watercolour paper for colour pencil drawings. It's smooth enough to keep everything looking ni

An artwork of your animal friend
By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.
Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.

My name besides pbird12 is Paula McDonald (no Ronald or Old MacDonald jokes, please!). In my head I am 20 years old and will be forever; sadly, in earth years I am a wee bit older than this. I’m 33. I am Scottish and live with my fiancé and two beautiful children. My little boy is 2 and my little girl is 5.
Do you remember when you started drawing? Did something or someone in particular inspire you to pick up your pencils?
"I always drew as a kid and loved Art class at school, but was never able to draw people - I found it very frustrating. When I left school I went to college and studied Graphic Design for 3 years, and I think it turned me against art in general - I hated it! So, I didn't draw for more than 10 years. I started drawing realism when I joined dA, so about 15 months or so ago, and now I can draw people!"

First official Feature in the favourite showcaseDear :iconthefavouriteshowcase: - Members!!First official Feature in the favourite showcase1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am really happy (and to be honest rather proud) to submit my first official feature as a new contributor of this group.
Oh, but before I start the feature, let me loose some words about myself - I know - I love talking very much and it might be annoying, but in that case you can just skip the talking bit - after that I will just comment on the pictures, telling a bit about myself as well, but mainly focusing on the artworks
I am more a casual artist. Originally I come from the auditive arts - jep, I wanted to study music on university, but somehow I ended up becoming a primaryschool teacher Unfortunately the art-teachers at my university are not too helpful in making this wonderful subject a joyful and creative matter Especially in didactics we are (imo) tought how to forfeit delight and joy in visual arts and destroy this natural creativity in the pupils as well - At least this is my opinion. I am aware, that art is a very p

A Cup of Creativity Challenge!My last challenge (The CCC - The Crayon Creation Challenge) turned out to be a load of fun and produced some unbelievable artworks! I thought it was time to do a new challenge. From the poll, there seem to be plenty of you to take partA Cup of Creativity Challenge!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What's the point?
* For fun
* For the challenge
* To try something new with a non standard medium
* I'll feature everyone on my page for a week with the art from this challenge
* For my favourite piece, I'll give away my coffee creation as a prize (and if it sucks, I'll do you a drawing instead)
What are the rules?
* Paint a portrait using coffee as your medium and nothing else (well, maybe a tiny bit of graphite for your sketch and tiny touches of your choice of white/black medium for highlighting/darkening choice areas, but that's it!) Your art must be at least 90% coffee.
* Paint whoever you like, but it must be a painting that you have put time into; I won't accept halfhearted or obviously rushed entr

Colour challenge!Are you up for a little challenge?Colour challenge!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you do traditional art, chances are that you're familiar with this phenomenon: the black pencil/paint always runs out quicker than all the other colours. Right? Well, I decided to challenge myself to create a drawing without using the black pencil. And then I decided, hey, I'll just challenge my friends too!
So here's the challenge:
Create a colour drawing or painting using only colours, no black. That means no black pencil/paint, no grey pencils, no charcoal, no graphite, no black paper. And you have to use several different colours, or at least different shades of the same colour; drawing a sketch with only one colour defeats the purpose here.
No rules aside from that. White pencils/paint/chalk etc is allowed, and you can use whatever paper you want as long as it's not black (or really dark grey). It's really a challenge for traditional artists, since it's much harder to eliminate black in digital art, but if you want
