A rescue dogA few days ago, when I was at open field work in another city 200km away from Warsaw, working as off-road/trail photographer as usually- I got a call about a husky dog in desperate need that is located in MY area. Fully starved dog (just bones), having severe skin issues, bleeding and leaking mold off from skin and fur is falling off found on streets laying down- and needs immediate health attention. I'm not anymore active volunteer in my animal rescue foundation due to life changes, but my instincts of rescuing animals came back. I've responded to the animal foundation and took responsibility of picking up and transporting a husky in need.A rescue dog10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Chinese Ice Storm Dragon Contest Winter 2011-12After a long and difficult voting session, we finally have our winners!Chinese Ice Storm Dragon Contest Winter 2011-123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Remember, you guys - it wasn't just about "talent". The rules had to be followed, and creativity was taken to the max! "Pretty" doesn't mean "Winner".
:iconrussc1:'s New Year's Icy got the Honorable Mention, and will get rewards from the "prizes for everybody" section. It was agreed this piece was cute and unique, and though it lacked a storm - so did most the others! I know at least two of the judges, myself included, had an instant "awwwww" when seeing it.
:icon1rich1:'s The Princess Meets the Dragon takes third place. The picture's uniqueness and beauty, and classic mix of the dragon and the princess tale, won our hearts. While also lacking a storm, we felt it fit better than those with storms that did not have very Chinese looking dragons.
:iconniv100:'s The Storm is Coming... is an incredibley unique mix of a fish and a Chinese Ice Storm dragon, summoning a storm, that just fully deserv

How to Advertise you WorkOriginally posted in JewelersGuild, a group I co-founded. I felt others may benefit from this as wellHow to Advertise you Work2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Recently someone posted a comment asking people to advertise for them. This has in turn led us to the conclusion that it is high time we wrote something about advertising your work. Not everyone knows this subject very well, or how to go about doing it.
First thing you need to know is that you must be the one to do the work. Don't ask someone else and offer a portion of the profits. That is considered rude, and quite lazy. You don't want that. You want to make a good impression. First impressions go a long way. Now if someone offers to advertise your work that's something else entirely.
Secondly, know who your customers are. This is something a lot of people don't consider, and thus do not know how to advertise their work properly. For example let's say you make steampunk jewelry. Your primary customers would be those who are into steampunk. Is your wo

My deviantART storyI signed up on DA 5 years ago because friends told me it was a nice place to view a lot of awesome art. (So true!) Back then I wasnt an artist and hadnt planed to be one either, I merely wanted to check cool stuff in my freetime. Haha. Pretty soon after getting a account I left though and forgot the place entirely.My deviantART story10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Not until late in 2011 I went back again, I was bored that particular day and looking at art is always fun. The difference now was that I begun speaking to people, and got some really great friends at that, and as my friendhip grew and I got more and more inspired by the artists I saw, I also wanted to start make things. So I did the only thing I was okay-ish at - I drew and painted.
One of the first things I put on DA, a painting of my Brook Horse for the fantasy trilogy I write

No, really, it's the first time I get into an obsession which a lot of people also get in X_X I mean, I tend to dislike what everybody uses to love.

This is how I was drawing when I was a teenager, something around 15-17.
Behold my weaboo phase! Yes, I was drawing animu. I never got a good grip on that style so it's all hideous.

That hand. That space between eyes. That fabric, hair, expression, composition ...well everything.

Vitreous EnamelArtisan Crafts WeekVitreous Enamel1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Vitreous enamel is a material made by fusing powdered glass to another material (usually metal or ceramics - I'll be talking about metal) by firing. The powdered glass melts and flows into a smooth coating, which hardens as it cools. There are a lot of other materials out there that are calling themselves 'enamel' that are technically a resin or something else with very similar properties - traditionally, however, enamel is glass, and that's what I'll be talking about in this article!
Although this all sounds super cool and fancy (hopefully) you can actually find examples of products that have been enameled in an industrial setting all over the place! The older white boards at schools, for example, were often made of steel with a white enamel coating on them. In addition, cookware is often enameled - ever see those dark blue pots with the white speckles? Other commonly used items that have been enameled are bath tubs, dishwashers, and other appliances.
