“Things that I love about…”- painting a dollI love to put different hair locks to a doll face so much during the process of painting it it allows me to look at the conceived doll from a different angle and to "polish" the details of her image, and it captivates me so much that I can spend much time at this activity!“Things that I love about…”- painting a doll2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
For the beginning an enigma image: let your imagination fly!
Fantasize a bit, what this new Dea Vivente is going to look like? Probably, she will stay like this, but maybe you will not recognize her when she is a heroine of new photographs.
Right now I'll show you the results of high firing the doll's parts put together. The new porcelain that the girls are cast from is beautiful flesh toned, shining a bit and even shimmering. I'm glad that Dea Vivente are going to become even better.
I like the look of fired porcelain this is yet the "blank canvas" meant for picturing a painting.
And now some words about painting.
In doll sphere, toning the parts of body is called "blushing", and this is

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
DA Lit : Who We AreI am proud to be exclusively a literature artist. I really don't know how to do anything else. Here on DA, Literature is not necessarily under appreciated by most of the people in the community, it is just widely ignored. I think, really, many of us are completely okay with that. For the most part, we aren't here for popularity.DA Lit : Who We Are3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We are here for each other. We don't have thousands of followers. We don't have millions of faves. But for the most part, we have been able to find other artists that help us to refine our art. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I truly cannot express the appreciation and love that I have for my friends who consistently critique my work. One monstroooo, ChibiDomo, or any other of my adamant critique-rs is worth a thousand faceless, nameless followers.
We are a community of our own. There are many groups here on DA that inspire writ

What, you ask?
My "Art of Rise of the Guardians" book!!!! IT CAME A DAY EARLY. AWESOME SURPRISE. It has a foreword by Alec Baldwin, a preface by NONE OTHER THAN WILLIAM JOYCE HIMSELF, and is written by Ramin Zahen.
OHMYGOODNESS. IT'S AWESOME.
It had chapters on each of the characters and their lairs!! AND THERE'S AN ENTIRE. FRIGGIN. SECTION. ON. JACK.
Anyway, I'm writing Chapter 28 right now and should have it up! After that, I'm going to continue fangirling hard as I read through this entire 155-page book.
And then probably write some more. Because I'm going to be inspired.
I'll be sure to end up including some findings that this art book will provide in my writing so it stays accurate!
Thanks, and sorry about the spam.

I would prefer the drawing of your citizen to be in AT style, but if you just absolutely CANNOT draw in AT style, you can draw in your own style.
Citizens can be maids, tailors, bakers, shop owners; whatever you want!
MUST be a kind of fruit(obviously)!
you may only submit up to 2 entries.
All contest entries must be colored.

IN OTHER NEWS. I have been searching high and low for a plain blue hoodie and have been unsuccessful. Until today! I finally found one, and it's perfect! For what, you ask? Well, secret is revealed. I'm going to be making a Jack Frost hoodie. That is my next big project in the lineup. I'm so excited. You have no idea.
My knitting project is almost done, which is why I permitted myself to line up this next project.
My Jack Frost collection is slowly growing.

With the contests that have been circulating around, it made me in the mood to have one of my own partaining to Ivan's kingdom.
What the contest is about:
What this contest is, is like many of the others about creating a citizen. But being that it is the reptile kingdom there is more variety.
What I'm looking for in an entry:
A not your average day reptile, so I don't want a iguana, or like leopard g lecko. I want you to do alittle bit of research. I want you to put a lot of thought into this, and find a reptile that you think is weird or interesting, etc.
No Dinosaurs,or Dragons.
The style of clothes worn in Ivan's kingdom mirror arabian and egyptain clothing. To qualify I want your character to wear clothes like this as well.
lol ivan only started wearing them recently woops and his bff wallace doesn't what rebels.

I find it absolutely funny......when people bitch about how much other users' artworks suck because of how old some of the users are, how terribly drawn the artworks are, because some of the users use MS Paint, and so on.I find it absolutely funny...5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey, here's a newsflash for ya: I'm pretty sure that your artworks weren't also that great (to other people) when you had first started drawing and were a beginner too.
However someone draws is their choice. Whether they want to improve or not is also their choice.
And I'm pretty sure that other people use different art programs because they may enjoy 'em, may find 'em easier to use, and so on.
So long as they did try their best at drawing, then that is good enough. I'm not afraid to admit that my artworks are crap, but I don't care. After all, I only draw for my amusement.
The only few things that I don't consider pictures to be art are those who post stolen images, trace someone else's art and post it up, and so on.

I'm not going to call you out by name because, even though it may seem a little petty that I'm writing this journal at all, I don't want people to know who you are and/or attack you or whatever. You complain enough about your life (boo hoo) that I shouldn't even bother giving you this extra nuisance to deal with. But I also cannot let you get away with thinking what you are; and I want you to know that I fully aware of the things you've said about me.

First off, you say my art is 'old' and that I should change it up a bit. Well... that's a little hypocritical of you to say. Everyone recognizes YOUR art, and I switch up my style more than you ever do (which is never). Also, you said my art inspired you to try something different. Y

Remember guys, basically saying, if you make fun of little girls (to even little boys because it's best to keep things equal), it'll be seen as an odd thing and you'll just get called a pedophile. So leave the brats who act stupid alone, pedophiles!
