Welcome to My Cute Paradise
Desde que vi la pelicula Bambi en mi infancia los ciervos me llamaron mucho la atencion, y hace unos años cuando supe de la existencia de ciervos albinos me puse como loca!!
en general me encantan todos los animales albinos, son tan raros y hermosos que es imposible no admirarlos. Siento especial envidia por las personas que han logrado fotografiar ciervos albinos y estar tan cerca de ellos, me encantaria tener ese privilegio alguna vez.
Since I saw the movie in my childhood Bambi deer caught my attention, and some years ago when I learned of the existence of albino deer got me crazy!
in general I love all albi
10 Inspiring Quotes about Art1. As an artist your first loyalty is to your art. Unless this is the case, you're going to be a second-rate artist. "10 Inspiring Quotes about Art4 months ago in Personal More Like This

Artistic Growth: Making of Morgan Le FaySometimes it just takes a while to get it right.Artistic Growth: Making of Morgan Le Fay4 months ago in Personal More Like This
In early 2011 I began a piece I back then called 'Fairy' - I had an idea of this alien looking woman staring into the vast emptiness with a slightly lost look on her face. Her main feature was to be her brilliant blue eyes. I started the piece and I had fun with it for a little while but then I got incredibly frustrated because I was unable to transfer the image in my head onto the wacom tablet.
The early, abandoned piece.
A year later I was looking through my folder of pieces from 2011 and found the abandoned file. I decided to pick up on it again and see if I could make something of it. At first I felt inspired by an old German Oil Painting by Christian Seybold (1695-1768) - a portrait of an old woman.

it's all about work!Every day i hear how talented I am - I think this is a incorrect. I think that talent is confused with work. I do believe there is talent in every artist, but it is only 5%- you see when we were younger we all drew the same. As we got older, many people stopped trying to draw due to comments, lack of interest or what ever other reason they put there. The others that continued, like all things learned that it is 95% work, frustration, tears, anger, determination, persistence, practice, practice, practice, & more practice that allows them to create the artwork you see. Many people just grade the artist on the end result, in reality they missed the struggle and battle that truly defines the piece created. I enjoy the 5% talent I see around me yet I respect the 95% dedication that these great artist put out that makes their works fantastic. I believe anyone can learn to draw- they just have to want it bad enough. and that means that they are willing to show us by putting the effort in to iit's all about work!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
5 Great Podcasts for Artists and IllustratorsFor about two years I have been a big fan of listening to art podcasts while doing my artwork. In that time I have listened my way through many, many hours of illustrators sharing advice and experiences. There are some really informative gems out there and there are some more laid back, but still entertaining podcasts. All of them have one thing in common - they are for artists by artists. If you are an art student who is looking for a glipse into what working as an illustrator is actually like I would even more so recommend that you try out some of these links and give it a listen, you will learn a lot.5 Great Podcasts for Artists and Illustrators10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Caring about your own workDuring my second semester of foundation at Pratt institute I had a very interesting drawing teacher named Douglas Wirls. One my last day of class, where we had our final review he told me something that will stick with me forever. Professor Wirls said to me:Caring about your own work1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"It is your responsibility as an artist to care about your own work. It is a responsibility you have to your work, that you MUST care about it and seek to improve it, because no one else is ever going to care about it as much as you. No one else is as personally engaged in it as you are, so if you give up, that is entirely on you. No one is going to stop you one way or another, it is all on you. It is YOUR responsibility."
It made me think, and although it has only been less than a year since he said this to me I have often reminded myself and taken solace in it. Perhaps during the early years of learning, this reminder is most valuable.
It can be an incredibly frustrating path to improve your artistic skillset. Sometimes the penci
Our First LoveWe all loved it at first.Our First Love7 months ago in Personal More Like This
We loved creating. Those first attempts were driven by enjoyment. We weren't doing it to get better, to "practice", or even, God forbid, for a paycheck. We were doing it to do it. A joy unto itself.
In some ways, I find all my current work to be little more than efforts to rediscover that first love. To get back to that feeling I had at the beginning, before all the training, practice, and work. Before I was "serious." Back when drawing wasn't about creating something pretty but just having fun. No pressure, no demands, no expectations.

Haunted - contest #3From Shakespeare, through Stocker, Poe, Lovecraft, Murnau, Wiene, Tolkien... et ceatera, et ceatera... You may find this motif in many great pieces. It doesn't actually have to mean ghosts around - somnambulism presented in Cabinet of Doctor Caligari looks haunted despite the lack of spirits. On the other hand, there are few places scarier than the Dead Marshes described in the Lord of The Rings. Or the Eel Marsh estate from the recent movie. You surely have heard some local legends and tales, talking about unhappy brides and maidens wandering around a long time after their death or about a highwayman as from one of Loreena McKennitt's ballads.Haunted - contest #31 year ago in Personal More Like This
In this contest, you're supposed to refer to one of such haunted pieces. It should be inspired by or refering to a legend, a novel, a movie, an existing (or not existing any more) place, even a song lyrics. Illustrating!

Confessions - Learn from MeOkay, I'll be trying to make this simple. To explain the latest journal, and to share an experience that might help others that are in the same boat as me.Confessions - Learn from Me7 months ago in Personal More Like This
First things first: The original problem.
Ever since age 10-11 i've developed a very abstract way to see things. I've started thinking more and more how it would've been, If I could control the world. If I could be anything.
Create my worlds, live my worlds, die many times but keep the experiences before.
Rebirthing myself in another body with the experience I have now: I would be great. Phenomenal. I could fix my past mistakes.
And be so much more. Live so much more. Without fearing consequences. The world itself would be my playground.
It has fascinated me since, greatly. ( Monochrome is the artistic embodiment of this abstract emotion and thought.)
It has also been the fuel to my (soon to be developed) depression and suicidal thoughts.
I hate not having control. I hate having to feel bad, when I thought that by dying I would esca

The Price of ArtThis journal entry has been in my mind for awhile, and now with having posted the article about artists deserving respect as paid professionals I think its time to give you my perspective on this.The Price of Art4 years ago in Personal More Like This
What determines the price of art? What is art worth? Is it really worth anything? Why should people buy art?
First of all, the major point in all of this is that the price of art is completely subjective, meaning that its value is mainly determined by the person viewing it. The second part of the value of artwork is determined by the cost of materials, and the cost of the artists time, as well as how in demand their work is. Then there are different price scales for Fine Artists, Graphic Artists, Illustrators, Freelance Artists, Web Designers, etc. All of these factors add up to the price of artwork.
For my purposes, I will discuss Fine Art and Illustration, which is what I am most familiar with.
With fine art, the

Supporting needs an account on the site but it's entirely free and simple to make. Feel free to note me if you have any questions.
Thanks for having a look & have a nice day!"
