Thank you! (Watchers and Donors Feature)I'm back! Sorry for not being active in the last 2 months.. As you may have already heard, Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia were hit pretty bad with catastrophic floods. The situation in my home town was pretty serious for a while, but a few thousands of volunteers worked day and night and managed to keep most of it safe and dry.. However, many other towns were completely flooded. By now, everything has dried off, but many people had lost everything they had and they still need a lot of help. So if you want, or have the means to help you can find a lot of official info here.Thank you! (Watchers and Donors Feature)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After the floods and everything I had to take my faculty exams, and they finally passed last week, so now, I finally have enough time to feature, as promised, my most generous donors, and surprise my most faithful watchers by featuring you too and show you my appreciation So this one's for the ones whose names caught my eye by showing up from time to time in

Literary ContestThis is a contest for writers; I will post a group of characters I made up for the contest. Their will be a bio of each character but their background will be left up to you characters from the list and make sure to keep that character's personality in tact as you write. I will have 3 different plots to choose from. (Note: I am not saying use all the character on the list if you can okay)Literary Contest2 years ago in Personal More Like This
These Characters are not in any story that I'm writing and were created strictly for the contest. What is listed under the characters are the bases to go on. I did not list height, age, species, or background. That is for you to decide when you write the character. If you have a question about the characters or if you want to know if you can add/change something, then I would appreciate that you please note me first. I promise I will get back to you with an answer within 24hrs. Have fun and be creative.

Childhood MemoriesPlease, please read this in the Journal tab so the deviations display correctly, they look badly collated on my profile page! :iconchibispainplz:Childhood Memories2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been meaning to write this journal for... probably about a year As I've travelled the paths of dA I've seen things that remind me of my childhood home and have collected them for the beautiful memories and would now like to share them.
I was born in the town (now a large town I believe) of High Wycombe in Bucks (Buckinghamshire) in England in 1956. When I was 11 we moved to the countryside and I spent 4 idyllic years (when I wasn't at school) wandering the farmland and woods surrounding our family home. These years were very, very precious to me and I will cherish the English countryside inside my head for the rest of my life.
When I was 15 we got on a cruise ship and sailed away to Australia to live and I have never returned to the UK. Well, not yet anyway.
Thanks to everyone who has po

Flowers after allWhat ever i'm painting or drawing, i always go back to flowers. Maybe there are not much life in flower paintings and drawings, not like in portraits, but still it's very relaxing and pretty after all) It's nice to see just pretty things sometimes, to dont think about meaning or philosophy of art, but simply enjoy.Flowers after all8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Without the extra day every 4 years, we would be in 2013.
As the Mayan Calendar doesn't take leap years into account; 2012 has been and gone.

Tutorials and techniques 2It's time to refresh the tutorial journal! Added some new ones and removed those which, after some time, I found a bit misleading.Tutorials and techniques 23 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!
Poses, composition and perspective
Expressions and emotions
Colour theory, selection and mixing VS light
