1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
Hello! My name is Šárka, pronnounced Sharkah. I’m a 20 years old student of biology at Charles university in Prague. I come from the south of Czech Republic (the country with beer) , from beautiful South Moravia (the region of wine). I have a tarantula called Ungoliant and I love everything related to J.R.R.Tolkien.
2. When did you read Tolkien's books for the first time, and what impression did they leave in you?
When I was 10, I found an interesting book in a

1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
Hi everybody! What to say... I am homebody that draws things for a hobby, and doesn't have nearly enough time to do so as much as she'd like. I am a student (though not for long) and like to let my mind wander with Tolkien (and others) when number crunching gets to be too much. I'm Catalan, female and study chemistry and engineering.

We're getting closer and closer to the holiday season! Unfortunately, in overwhelming excitement for this time of year, our chaos gerbils ran awry, and llama herds stampeded through our office. In the pandemonium, they left behind a huge mess, with stars and ornaments knocked off our tree, bows from our presents scattered on the floor, and Super Llama Plushies carelessly strewn from their shelves. With such clutter and disorganization, we need your help to clean it up in our newest holiday game!
What is it?
Head to Holiday Headquarters, and you’ll find the Holiday Trouble game listed under the ‘Events’ section.
Have You Seen This Llamahog?Name: Llamahog Gertrude Bicknevis IIIHave You Seen This Llamahog?3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

Sex: Who knows?
Eyes: Brown, cross-eyed

Missing Since: January 31st, 2012
Missing From: Hollywood, CA
Tourists visiting Los Angeles described seeing what they thought was either an abnormally tall Groundhog or a short and overweight Llama galloping near the Hollywood sign. Later in the afternoon, locals reported seeing a confused mammal staggering along one of the freeways, but Los Angeles police officials confirmed that it was just a confused starlet wearing a fur coat.
If you have any information on Llamahog’s whereabouts or just want to help aid in the search, please don’t hesitate to add your comments below.

Howl’s Moving Castle is best known as the 2004 animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
While it is as beautifully animated as all of Studio Ghibli's other films this was one of the few times Miyazaki based a film on an existing work. The film is an adaptation of British author Diana Wynne Jones’ 1986 young-adult novel by the same name and the first book in the Ho
How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible.How to beat procrastination (part 2)5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful!
Create the habit of drawing
First thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:
"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."
Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi

Tracon 8:n roolipelipuolen kunniavieraana nähdään pelialan moniosaaja Ross Watson, joka tunnetaan muun muassa peleistä Warhammer 40 000, Through the Breach: Malifaux, The Iron Kingdoms ja Darksiders II.

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
