Bucket List TradeWant original art but can't afford it? Here are the things I'd be willing to trade artwork for.Bucket List Trade3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. One night assisting astronomers in a huge space telescope. Looking for new planets, finding aliens, whatever.
2. A ride in a 1970s De Tomaso Pantera. I'd take a Maserati Bora as well.
3. Original art from Sergio Toppi, Jorge Zaffino, or Bill Watterson.
4. Scuba diving in a cave. I don't have a license yet, so that should be included.
5. A ride in a WWII B-25.
6. An hour with Henry Rollins.
7. Dinner with Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
8. A "behind the scenes" tour at the Museum of Nat History in NYC.
Some of these things I suppose I could find myself, but I know I'll never get around to it.

for the simple reason..that i needed a dose of the -not-taking-things-that-seriously- approach..
.his work is visually clever..
..i think i'm using too many adjectives..
..better show what he, himself..
..has famously said..
..i don't think he does..
..or did he?..in 1970 he famously burnt everything he ever made..
..from the mouth of the artist:
“For some reason, the idea of absence, of leaving things out, has been very important in my work.”
“I used to wake up sometimes in a sweat, and tell myself I was just making trinkets for rich people.”
“I really like being alone,”
..and..when asked if he has figured out what art is, his response:
“Not . . . a . . . clue.”
all this (and more) is evident in this short video..

deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.comIt recently came to our attention that a website called Art4Love.com was offering prints for sale, some based off of deviations also found on deviantART.com (and perhaps other works by artists not on deviantART). Art4Love.com is currently offline, but was up long enough to make some artists very understandably upset, as neither the artists (we are told) nor deviantART ever gave permission for Art4Love.com to sell these prints.deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.com3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We've been tracking the exchanges of comments and journals about all possible infringing activity and are ready to provide information from our side that would help legal action that any of the affected artists decide to bring. We will also fully cooperate with any government agency that may become involved because of consumer complaints against this apparently infringing website and the people running it. We would also happily cooperate with any possible fraud investigations.

What A Wonderful WorldAs you have seen, dearies, I am back from my trip around some countries of Europe. Sincerely, I had an amazing time! The cities we've been to are absolutely marvelous. Budapest is the city of bridges, with 8 outstanding and glorious bridges in an old style.What A Wonderful World3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Vienna amazed us with the huge Zoological garden and Schonnbrunn Castle/gardens.
In Wroclaw I really wanted to meet Doof, but because of some circumstances, that wasn't possible. Don't worry, I'll still gonna make it and meet ya.
And one of the best part of our trip is that my parents made it possible that me, Zel and Ewa met in Warszawa.
Why it's so important to unite as artists.We are with many though yet we are with few. We're all divided over little subgroups such as, fantasy illustrators, concept artists, comic book pencilers, photomanipers, techartists, anime drawers, realism sketchers etc. You might even find your place at multiple sections.Why it's so important to unite as artists.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I found that the biggest united groups on Deviant Art are mostly evolved around fan art, such as Sonic, or My little pony.
Observations aside, I think the good thing about those groups is that they serve for companionship. Being an artist all by yourself with no one to share/talk about/discuss your work with can feel rather lonely. And that lonely feeling is not encouraging at all. Most of us keep a lot of things taboo as well, like techniques or rates. If we were more openly with these the changes of being underpaid or missing out on a job because someone else does it for hardly any money at all will grow slimmer. People should know what they are worth and not be afraid to ask for it.

the truth about me.Confession-the truth about me.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
A fear years ago I stopped submitting my work to publishers. I just got tired of hearing my work was not good enough or that I was not what they were looking for or hearing nothing at all. I'm not telling people to not submit, I myself just got worn down by never hearing anything positive.
I had stories in my head to tell. Ideas forming and building and dreams that were very very big. So instead of giving up hoping that someone else would make my stories reality, I decided to do it myself. I had nothing to loose and everything to gain. I still believe that.
That's not to say I would sign, if someone wanted my work and if the deal was right I would do it. Yet, those opportunities have never arisen. I am not too worried about it though. I've always had to figure it all my own, to learn everything about creating, publishing, distribution and marketing. To make mistakes, fail and get back up. The road of a self-publisher is a hard one.
There are many many long hours

For those who don't know. It's a missile...Sort of. Okay, it looks more like a rocket, but I assure you, it will do the same thing as a missile.
BY THE WAY!! It's CatCouch 's birthday coming up on the 11th of March so don't forget to wish him a happy birthday and give him cake (before I launch my missile of awesome power and destruction)!
Okay, back to the comic...

Cinder is coming to Doctor Who: Legacy!So it was announced today that the War Doctor's companion Cinder (from George Mann's novel "Engines of War") is being added to the Doctor Who: Legacy game, and yes- she will be in the same style as the design I cooked up a while back with George's input:Cinder is coming to Doctor Who: Legacy!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Obviously, we have to make a few alterations since the original was based on Hayley Williams (we never dreamed that this design would get fast-tracked for officialdom). But I can promise that "Cinder 2.0" will still be mostly the same and just as badass (and most importantly, still have a gun made out of dead Dalek parts). The legacy folks have been very cool to work with, and I'm hoping we'll be working together on some more stuff soon.
Also- you gotta see this wicked Cinder fan art by Paul Cooke. Beautiful stuff:

My StoryDear, deviantart fellow artists,My Story7 months ago in Personal More Like This
After making these weekly journal posts for a while, I realized that I hadn't written anything particular about myself - how/when did I start to make something creative and what is my background and such, so here it goes..
When I was younger I was interested in many things and had lots of hobbies - papercrafts, origami, scrapbooking, playing guitar/ piano etc. , but It all lacked something important. Although I was keen on learning - I had no idea what exactly was the right choice for me. I went to local children art school for a while and graduated it in 2011 (made a little dragon sculpture btw), and then I did a lot of photography - I spent my time capturing sunsets and sceneries around me.
I joined deviantart in 28th September of 2011. (two days after my birthday) I have no idea why I decided to have this u

As you don't know, in about a week I will start my adventure in some of the European countries, ready to meet some friends, counting :iconMistertwieght: , :iconPen-and-Mouse: and :iconD00fenstar: . I have been planning since last year and I can't wait for this trip. I will be gone around 2 weeks. We're going through Oradea, Budapest, Vienna, Prague, Wroclaw, Warsawa and Kracow. ;u; I feel so happy. Most of the hotels have Wii-Fi so I guess we'll keep in touch, at least for some time.Hell yeah, taking requests + some news5 months ago in Personal More Like This
But until my journey starts, I have about a week and besides the A-Team drawing, I have this huge art block. So if anyone wants, the first ones that comment will be noted down here and we can talk about a nice request to heal me from the block. If you want to transform this into an art-trade, I will be more than happy. So art trades are also open.

Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersDrawing tips - tutorial1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!
First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract a
