MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!

For this Christmas holidays I wanted to do something special for all the people who appears in my watchers list, all of you are the reason why I keep coming back to DA, and for you I try to improve my artworks. Thank you!

So I decided to make another special Journal of features, even if some of you  never write me a comment, Im happy just for having you on my list.

A clarifying note; unfortunately I can´t put everyone here, mostly because some watchers have changed accounts and they don´t use the old ones anymore, others are deactivated or simply have not been here in a looooong time (a year or more) and most likely they will not return. :(

Anyway, There are some of the artworks that I picked up, sorry I couldn't search your galleries more deeply more than the surface pages, this was something slow and I have little time.
------------------------------------------
SPECIAL GUEST
First of all :icontehchessie: ; She was kind enough to make a request for me,  from my character "the Nightmarish musician" thanks a lot ,I love it, this design is more similar to how I dreamed her. 
She is not a watcher, hence the title of "special guest" 
sketch request for Lookatvoid by TehChessie
---------------------------------------------
Now here comes my friends and watchers:

---------------------------------

:iconapplebeans:         somepony please make my tears stop by applebeans
I will not lie, sometimes I stalk my watchers :iconstalkingplz: because of this I learned that you are considered a legend around these parts (I feel honored) and your works are always followed by controversy. I must admit that I was a bit shocked  at first too, but then I found this little interview.
 mlp.derpynews.com/artist-of-th… And I learned  and I learned to appreciate your style a little more.. My favorite part of the interview: "I make my art to make people laugh".
------------------------------------
:iconave-nu:             Together by ave-nu
One of my oldestr friends here, in DA I like your style for draw characters and backgrounds in manga style, (and , a bit of envy, to tell the truth). when I began to draw, I took several of your work as an example, when I was talking to my brother about how to do things (look the look at the shape of the mouth, the eyes, the expression that has, etc...)
-----------------------------------
:iconbamm24:             Some Ram Girl by Bamm24
I haven´t heard about you in a while, I hope you come back...
-------------------------------------
:iconbigmasi:            Sombra by BigMasi
Usted tambien, era muy activo y entonces se ha ido... 
Tengo que decir; siempre me gustó su imaginación y variados conceptos y siempre creí que era capaz de hacer cualquier cosa que quisiera, con cualquier técnica  que escogiera, símplemente porque puede. 
Lo estaré esperando.
------------------------------------------------
:iconchosaguro:          2013 Summary of Art by chosaguro  
I know that you had little free time lately and with the concern of the school (I read your journals but I don´t know what to say) anyway, I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. catches my attention the variety of styles you have, digital art, pixel art, etc...
  By the way I wanted to put "Mr. Corgi" in this journal, but finally I choose to put your summary of art.
A change of name? Huh? I was confused at first, "Who is this guy? but after a short look at your homepage I understand everything.
I remember the time when my teacher of literature (greatly feared for his strong mood, by the way) one of the many facets of literature, "The literature as a game" She said. Now you you remind me of that phrase every time I read something of yours; playing with the words, the ideas, the metaphors... or even direct messages, all artfully organized.  
------------------------------------------ 

:iconcoffeebeanie:       Puppy stamp by coffeebeanie     
How are you? You know? I still keep that note of congrats of February 14. Is the first thing I think of when I receive a note. That's already an implanted idea. 
-------------------------------------------                  
:icondahrial:            Chaotic Love Club Group Icon 3 by dahrial                
I know, I know... This is an alternative account, but it is in my watchers list :shrug: furthermore I am fan of the TCGs and CCGs in general, so I could not ignore this stamp of chaotic... 

(No! I would not put the stamp of "I ship Satan" here, contradicts the Christmas theme).
--------------------------------------------
:icondjdanilly:           Boy's Private ThoughtsBoy's Private Thoughts
Sitting there glaring at his mother, he had such rage at this very moment all throughout his body.
So much rage that he became someone else in his inner most private thoughts he was picturing unspeakable acts.  Much like an animals uncontrollable urge to kill.  In this daydream he just snapped.
He wanted to rip her brain out of her skull and he would do it
He would have to crack her stupid skull first,
Torturing her for hours would be sweet as pie.
But for right now he needed a quick and hefty action.  
He would take much pleasure shoving her stubborn little head into a hard cold brick wall
But right at that moment the anger was increasing and everything he sees is red.   The blissful thought comes to life.
Grabbing her skull he loved to crack it open like a hard egg
A titillating rush he felt when his fingers pierced through her brain.  
Every single layer of brain tissue pushing underneath his fingernails, one finger at a time dug into
   
I don´t know much about you, you do not use much your account, but I remember your advices and that´s why I chose to add you to my watchlist. 
------------------------------------------------                                           
:icondroganaida:         Something is wrong, isn't it? by Droganaida   
     is always a pleasure to watch your work, very inventive and funny. Good that I found your account.  
----------------------------------------------                     
:iconhastsmak:           Beary 004 by hastsmak  
from what I've seen you're a very naturalist person. you put me to think always with your posts in Facebook about what I do wrong. :noes: By the way, why I pick this artwork here? well is very recent and, considering my fondness for plushies, I had to choose this bear, he was yelling at me "pick me, pick me". 
------------------------------------
                                    
:iconhoneysempailover:   The tale about that day by honeysempailover      
 probably with whom I have been more in touch in DA. One of my oldest friends and probably the person who softened my mood (when I arrived here I was an emo-like guy grafted with Tasmanian devil genes, or something like that). Lately she has been very busy, since then this place feels very lonely ...                      -------------------------------------------- 
:iconingwellritter:      The Lovers by IngwellRitter 
No hay mucho que decirte mas que; tu arte es maravilloso. ¿De quié otra forma explicas un DD? (de hecho, dos, creo). Se que siempre estas extrtemadamente ocupada, por eso realmentew disfruto los comentarios que me has hecho.
--------------------------------------------
                                         
:iconladyanaila:         Dwarf by LadyAnaila 
Sí, ¡tenía que escoger al Dwarf para éste listado! ¿por qué no? ¡Es mi favorito de tu galería! tambien he notado que mejoras bastante con el tiempo. Fotomanipulación, suena complicado; cuidando los detalles, que la imagen no se vea fuera de lugar, utilizar los recursos que mejor se ajusten, tener siempre en cuenta el mensaje o la idea que quieres compartir, la originalidad... no quiero ni imaginar lo que haría yo si intentara armar una imagen... no tengo la paciencia.
------------------------------------------
                                                                    
:iconmaggotkiing:        Teeth by MaggotKiing   
Probably you're the one who I know less, but anyway, the theme in your artworks looks promising, I'll make a few visits later. 
-------------------------------------------                
:iconnao1967:            Garden of the cocoons by Nao1967   I really enjoy all your artworks, so original, beautiful, unique. always creating things I would never have dreamed, you have a tremendous imagination, and I´m glad for the opportunity I had to meet you. Also I enjoy your comments, always so nice and kind. Without forgetting that many times I learn something from you. 
  By the way, I like your icon, always makes me to imagine you smiling.
-------------------------------------------
                                             
:iconneccers:         <da:thumb id="419278779"/>    
What can I say. with a style that can jump from bloody to tender, (and sometimes a mix between them) or from serious to funny, entertaining to watch. But I think that is better to let the summary of art to speak for me.
By the way, I know that this year was very hard for you, but now comes the new year, a new beginning, so leave behind all the bad things of the 2013 and only take with you the good memories toward 2014, OK? 
---------------------------------------------   
:iconraeve721:           Landscape by Raeve721   
 I've been looking at some of your work, and I see you like to add many details, is not it?That style will look great with the time Oh, and of course I had to pick this image. I love that water.                          
:iconrawrimadragon:    :iconbaanyanyaah:           Fan Art of Katawa Shoujo for StriHiryu! by BaaNyaNyaah     
Well, well, this one is the exception to the rule of change of accounts, Why? because it is recent. and did not want to take the space that already had booked, just for a few months.
-----------------------------------                            
:iconsashieee:           Pinkie by Sashieee   
Another of my oldest friends here in DA, and a very kind friend too, You´re so kind that I can not imagine you sad or having a bad day. you don´t deserve it. Merry Christmas!
----------------------------------------------
:icontowarzyszkomisarz:   
Witcher by TowarzyszKomisarz
ok, there´s a a small update, since it has not been that long since I did this feature and your decision to add me to your watch list, I thought it would be unfair to leave you out. You have a great gallery.
 Thanks for the watch :D
----------------------------------------------
Well, that´s all, This thing really took me a lot of time. But I made it for all of you, so if you want me to replace something just tell me, OK?
Ok, I'm a little tired, so Goodbye.

Summer Day Dreams

Sun shine upon my face
no rain in sight not even a trace

Birds are chirping and singing
while watching over their young.

A faint barking dog is belling in the background
as I watch a small ant trying to carry  something larger than it's self

All the grass is such a vibrant green
flowers are growing and blooming  beyond one's dream

Sunshine on my face Sunshine within my heart
Summer Day Dreams bring happiness to my soul.

Last night, Cinderella was to host the greatest ball in all the land in honour of her Husband, Prince Charming. It had been months of hard work; every servant and helper furiously putting together the finest of touches to ensure everything was perfect. Invitations had been sent out to exclusive friends and acquaintances alike, reaching the farthest parts of fairyland. It was to be the event of the century.

There was no denying, Cinderella had become highly stressed of late. Organising such a fabulous ball had taken its toll, especially when perfection was her objective. Her inner control freak had taken over and she no longer cared who she upset or angered as long as the ball was exact. Friends were no longer happy with her, she wouldn't keep promises- let alone attend unnecessary events such as Alice's weekly tea party. In fact, even her own husband, who all this was for, had not been in her mind.

The Ball was lavish; champagne fountains, golden swans, shimmery streamers, a stylish décor and a feast so enormous, even the giants would be satisfied. VIPs from all of fairyland poured into the dance hall, dressed in glamorous ball-gowns and sharp suits, whirling around each other with air kisses and warm embraces. All was to Cinderella's plan and she was content at last.

Atop the main staircase in a long silver ball-gown, Cinderella was poised to make her grand entrance. Guests' heads turned until eventually all were looking in her directions in awe. She slowly glided down and smiled.

Suddenly a crack of lightning struck outside, followed by a furious roar of thunder and the lights went out. In the darkness, a sharp scream was heard, followed by a downward thudding on the stairs.

As a guest turned the lights back on, everyone was frozen in shock. Another guest screamed and pointed to the bottom of the stairs.

There Cinderella lay, twisted, broken and surrounded by blood. A guest bent down and looked at her face. 

"She's dead" he declared.

Prince Charming appeared, stood at the top of the stairs; pale and confused.

And so begins your investigation. We recommend you speak directly to the King (Birdhousebirdy) first, before you do anything else. On His profile page, look for a hidden link to a Sta.sh document that speaks of His story. Bring Him what he seeks, and you'll be on your way. 

Make sure you have read the rules!

If you don't hear back from any character within 36 hours (real life calls!), please note Aeirmid for the next clue. Good luck.

Surrealism

Thu Oct 3, 2013, 8:47 PM








W

orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.













The arts community responded with the Dada and Surrealism arts movement, with Dali’s dripping watches on canvas and Bunuel’s shocking sliced eyeballs on film. It was as if the artists were acknowledging that madness still held sway just beneath the surface of everyday rationality. The dream logic of sleeping hours became as much a part of one’s personal narrative as one’s waking perceptions and deductions. The 1920s and 30s were a time when the avant garde in the arts explored and commented upon their perceived meaninglessness of life, and the infinitely jumbled and recombined elements of surrealism became the language of their rebuke of the façade of rationality.












T

oday the radicalism of the surrealist movement in art is mostly gone (although there are still the occasional echoes of the original shocks, like Serrano’s 1987 photograph, “Piss Christ”), but the stylistic influence of surrealism remains indelibly imprinted on the culture, especially in design and advertising. The Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles designed by Frank Gehry is officially labeled “deconstructivist,” a modern aesthetic stepchild of surrealism. Advances in CGI artistry are making almost every beer commercial on TV seem like a free association exercise under influence of mild hallucinogens. This twisting and turning and melting and absurdist juxtapositioning of disassociated objects is the visual legacy of surrealism albeit devoid of its original defining spirit of anger and despair. Our civilization has managed to survive, after all.


We now value surrealism simply for its being so enjoyable in its wildly creative...


weirdness






Ironically, the original meaning of surrealism is now increasingly once again heard in the public discourse. Again this comes in response to horror—this time with the advent of senseless acts of terrorism in our cities and towns. Witnesses at the Boston Marathon bombing numbly described the event as “surreal,” when unable to describe something that couldn’t possibly have happened, yet in fact had just happened. “Like being in a bad dream, waiting to wake up.” The 9/11 disaster was repeatedly called “surreal,” describing an impossible horror having just become reality. Such was the original fire that burned in the hearts of the original surrealist artists. Betrayed by the promise of peace and human progress, they retreated into their own psychic landscape of dreams and fantasies as their only respite from the madness of irrational hate and violence.  Let us hope this return to surrealism’s “original usage” is of short duration, so we can continue to appreciate the art form’s altered realities for the purely imaginative artistry of its enduring aesthetic pleasures (minus the despair).









Dadaism not only wanted to present the meaninglessness of existence but also the meaninglessness of "art" as well such as with Duchamp's ‘Fountain.’












The future of surrealism in the arts is at a crossroads. Technology has increased what artists can create by a thousand-fold.




But will surrealist images, like those in sc-fi movies, point the way to a new way forward, or will surrealism be mainly utilized as a commercial distraction away from social issues?











no-1

Do you feel that surrealism should be judged only in terms of the aesthetic and without any further political or social “textual” meaning?














no-2

Do you think that a trust in science and political democracy has given us a naïve notion of steady human progress?  Should the “irrationality” of ancient beliefs and dream visions be factored into how we define ourselves and our journey forward?















no-3

Have you ever had the feeling that the boundaries between your waking life and your sleeping life were becoming porous?  Has dream logic ever served you well solving a waking problem? Has a revelation in a dream ever proven true in the light of day?









no-4

What do you beleive in today's society motivates so many artists on deviantART to adopt surrealism?





I consider dadaism as the philosophical basis for niche art movements such as net.art.  A small movement that is not only anti-art but presents a critical eye on technology.












Surrealism initially differentiated itself from dadaism with a focus on dream states and an influence from early psychology.














World War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

Okay, I just cannot help it....

IT'S  2013! THE YEAR OF THE SNAKE!

Hrm hrm. So. Now the the shout of excitement is done, I can tell you that it is the morning of January 1st, 2013. And I still cannot get my mind around the idea that it is the Year of the Snake. I am excited, and yet not.

Why? Cause I am a 1989 girl, which was two Snake years ago.

Hell, I am really trying to get the max out of this year. After all, if it is over, it will take another 12 years until the next Snake year arrives.

So, let's shed our old skins and grow ourselves wings. (duh, that rhyme n.n") Let's do our best to grow stronger in body and mind and reach our dreams. I hope that your plans this year come to great fruition.

ALL THE BEST FOR THE NEW YEAR, EVERYONE! KEEP GOING!

RULES:

-I will post your commission on my deviant art, so be prepared for everyone to see what you asked for!
