Love of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOSHello
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
Wolf puppies - fresh PHOTOS! + funny like hell :))Hi!Wolf puppies - fresh PHOTOS! + funny like hell :))2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nah, sorry for update, things have been fixed just seconds after I posted it
Baby arctic wolves just left the burrow in ZOO Brno - they are SO adorable
I bring you some shots of them - forget very low quality, please. First photos of tiny puppies are always taken from distance, because babies are too shy to get close to visitors
UPDATE: sorry, NOW you can see puppies XD I uploaded wrong file
At first, kiriban winner
And now - PUPPIES!!!
Seriously, people? And wolves - PHOTOS!Hi!Seriously, people? And wolves - PHOTOS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been always curious about the number of people, who look at my journals. And new style of "favable" journals could finally show it to me. I was interested - when I post a journal, I usually have some + 400 views on my profile page. So I expected to have some 400 views on my last journals, which would confirm, that 400 persons read it. But it got some 6 000 views! it is MUCH more than my photos usually have! I can not believe this number is correct... I was told that the journal appeared in some dA news section, but I am not sure if that is a reason, because I had no special pageviews, just regular + 400, which is typical for a day, when I post a journal. I think that new visitors, who would be attracted by a journal, would probably (at least small part of them) visit my page, so I would have bigger number of pageviews
So this is a mystery, really...
As I said, I like my photo journals and I consider them my "trade mark", something which differs me from anot
Baby wolves were born!!!Hi!Baby wolves were born!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is one year old journal, but I have great news - I just read that in local ZOO, baby arctic wolves were born again!
They still stay in a burrow, but as soon as they get older and leave the den, I will do my best to bring you some photos
Photos in this journal were taken in 2011
Here come the first photos of baby arctic wolves, who were born in ZOO Brno this year
The quality is very bad, they were some 20-30 metres from me, but I think you can still enjoy their cuteness
Do YOU want to sell prints? One mistake you make.Hi people!Do YOU want to sell prints? One mistake you make.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today it is a short journal without photos, sorry.
I would like to give you one important advice, so I hope it can be still useful
I see many people try to sell prints here. And they are often sad they have not sold anything yet.
But at the same time I see they do the same mistake. So:
HOW PEOPLE TRY TO SELL THEIR WORK AS A PRINT?
1. you took a photo (drew a picture). It is nice, so you want to post it as a deviation.
2. you edit it. Making it sharper, more colourful, adding contrast, CHANGING a size to some 850x600px, for example.
3. you post it as a deviation.
4. you look at your deviation and think "hm, it looks pretty cool! Maybe somebody can buy it. I will allow it as a print."
5. you click at "submit as a print" and in "print submission" option you just scroll down and click at "SUBMIT AS A PRINT".
6. now deviation in your gallery has that cool "buy this print" green button and you are excited about somebody buying it.
7. you are disappointed that nobody bought it.

KIRIBAN, spams and cute polar foxes - PHOTOSHi!KIRIBAN, spams and cute polar foxes - PHOTOS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You guys are fast - I did not plan to post a journal today, but I have to, because new kiriban is too close!
So: catch my 711 111 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof via note, if you want to be featured I just do not feature porn or animal cruelty kiriban is really close!
Spam... I noticed some official dA blog where they spoke about higher priority of fighting against spam. Honestly, there is probably something very wrong, because before dA posted it, I usually noticed only few - several spams a year. But since that post, I find spam on my dA account almost daily, sometimes even more spams a day! does it happen to you to? Those are messages like "As an anime fan, you can enjoy the best manga - LINK". It is annoying, I always report it
And now... FOXES!

Oh my. I hate dead lines for studying. I have some 10 days to study for my graduation exams and I am so stressed! And I have a bad habit to eat a lot when I am stressed so I commited few really bad eating sins in last hours. And I had no time to exercise. So I am fixing it right now!

Kiriban (744 444) is very close!
And I am busy and totally stressed. I fell asleep - I wanted to sleep only some 10 minutes, but I woke up now, after some 6 hours! it makes me unhappy. I am afraid I will not make it, there are so many pages and I do not remember anything. But I want the graduation exams to be already behind me. My life style is just terrible now two more days and it would kill me

Apology + animals on snow - PHOTOSHi palsApology + animals on snow - PHOTOS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to apologize. I was so annoyed with the thieves (and I still am) and all similar ignorrant persons, that I almost stopped replying to notes and comments... Let's say that if you write "use of this photo is allowed only with written permission" and then you do not answer those, who DO ask, it is definitely not the most fair thing :/ so sorry, I promise I will answer as soon as possible. It really would not be fair if those, who are able to politely ask for permission, would suffer for the acts of the thieves. Once more, I am sorry that allowed all those rude thieves to annoy me that much that I stopped replying...
And... after several months of terrible overeating caused by diploma thesis, family problems stress, I had no courage to try to use a scale to check my weight. I just felt that my body is covered with fat again. But then I decided to move and checked it - I found out that after all those months of "piggy" overeating, I got only some 4 kilos back, which

At first, I want to apologize - because of my final exams, I could not answer notes, so finally I got 15 of them! All of them should be already answered, sorry for late replies. My brain was not able to work few days before and then also after graduation exams it should be ok now.
Also: sometime I might miss some of your comment's questions, sorry If you want to be 99,9% sure to get a reply from me, send me a note, please I always do my best to answer every single note. Very rarely, it can happen that I read some note minutes before leaving the flat, so I forget to answer it, but I think it is really VERY rare so once again - I love to answer questions, but if you want to be 99,9% sure to gain an answer, ask via note, please thank you!
At second - wohoo after pretty long time, my photo was reposted here on dA. It was not a big deal - I stayed calm and just told the person to remove the shot. She did remove it - but funny thing came, she posted a big h

Nesting! And a sick ratty :(Holy crap you guys. I've always heard mothers-to-be get this urge to "nest" and I thought it was kind of silly. I mean sure, who doesn't want to get things clean and organized before their life is thrown into baby chaos? That makes sense. "Nesting" just sounds so...intense, I guess? But holy bananas, it is a real thing! And it just hit me like a brick wall this past week. I mean I NEED to clean everything. Every. Single. Thing. I'd sit down in the studio to work, and find myself tidying it up instead. Doh! Focus Becca, get back to work! Wander out to the kitchen for a drink, and magically find myself sweeping and vaccuuming and organizing everything. Then it just keeps going. I'm like a woman possessed! Clean ALL the things! And that is why I haven't done a lick of work since Thursday... but on the plus side, the house is freakin sparkling and organized as hellNesting!

Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank***WARNING: THIS IS A SUPER LONG AND DETAILED POST!***Story of Putting on Kneesock and Limo Prank3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I get a lot of questions on how waselreins and I did the body makeup for our demon sisters cosplays. So here I'll tell ya'll how we did it, in addition to the whole story about the limo entrance. With pictures!!
On Saturday morning, I woke up at 5 AM to get ready for Kneesock. The limo was going to pick us up at 12:45 PM and I had to help the others get ready so I woke up the earliest to do as much of myself as I could. After the necessary prepping (shower/wash face/brush teeth/moisturize) I put in my contacts and wig cap first.
I used Ben Nye MagiCake Aqua Paint in red for my face and ears. I was told afterwards it's pretty bad for your skin so next time I'm gunna use Kryolan or Mehron, but for Fanime Ben Nye worked perfectly fine for me. Here's a bit more info on it here: http://stageandtheatermakeup.com/bnmagiaq.htm
Instead of water to spray onto the red makeup I used LiquiSet and a foundation brush to apply it to my face.
