Really though, this has made me so giddy and happy it's almost ridiculous! xD I'd just come home from a long, dreary, rainy day of school, and I wasn't expecting anything remotely nice to happen and I certainly wasn't expecting a daily deviation! So this has just been such an awesome surprise!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to xthumbtakx and princepal for suggesting and featuring me!! Of course, thanks so much to anybody who has faved/ commented on my work as well! ^.^
And also, to my dearest watchers, thank you all for being so wonderful! I don't go spamming your pages with thank-yous, but please know that I really really appreciate all your support and I'm ever so glad that you find my art watch-worthy! You guys keep me inspired and drawing, and for that I am ever so grateful. You're probably sick of hearing all this grateful talk from me, so I'll just end here. A

A quote from one of the greatestWhen people get dressed they don't think about the process that comes behind the clothes they wear, they don't know the difficulties of the first steps of the design, the election of the fabric, the layout and placement of the pieces of the pattern, the incredible sensation of cutting the fabric, the union of the abstract components, and the creation of the final piece. For me, every step of that process is special.A quote from one of the greatest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a fashion designer I could tell that many people understimate this profession, they think that its just a simple and shallow work, that you just go to your work to play with dolls and draw things, they can't imagine the process behind that "simple" shirt they wear. But Im pretty sure that for all of us its our passion, our love and life, and that we give our all for it.
CondolencesI cannot even coherently express how upset and outraged I was when I read about the Connecticut shooting, much less imagine how devastated the families must be right now. The victims were completely innocent kids who still had a whole life in front of them and teachers who dedicated their lives to educate. These were families who had plans to visit grandparents, or go somewhere nice for Christmas, but were instead met with tragedy. :,( I just cannot comprehend in the slightest why anybody would resort to doing something so horrific and unjustifiable. As much as I detest the shooter though, I'm also sorry he was driven to the state. Grievances to his family, who not only lost him but the mother as well.Condolences2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't usually make journals like these, but it seemed appropriate. I just want to pay my condolences now to the families and anybody else who was affected by the incident. May they find peace.

As many of you will remember from last year’s festivities, August 13th is a very special day for lefties everywhere! Left Handers’ Day is a day where we can all get together freely and talk about our scissor preferences, smudged writing and how many times we’ve been heard: “Hey! Are you left handed?”.
Of course, we can do that any day. But on the 13th of August we have an awesome excuse. And once again, we’re providing you with the perfect excuse to put on that thinking cap and grab your art supplies to create something awesome for the LHA 2012 contest!
There are two sides to every coin: good and evil, day and night, law and chaos, left and right. This year’s theme is all about opposites, however you want to interpret them! Your piece can include any and all opposites, limited to only your imagination. It doesn’t have to relate to left-handedness, but just contrasting themes and o

Introduction to Printing Techniques: Part 1IntroductionIntroduction to Printing Techniques: Part 13 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Printmaking is a process where multiple original images, prints, are made by printing from one original source onto paper or other chosen print surface. The original plate is called matrix and it can be made of various materials. The image is transferred from the matrix using different printmaking techniques either by hand or by using a press.
The prints created by printmaking process are original artworks having an element of originality, so they are not considered as copies. Each print is signed, titled and numbered by the artist. The impressions printed from the same matrix are forming an edition.
This article is divided into two parts and it introduces shortly some printmaking techniques with artwork examples.
The Part 1 introduces relief printing techniques such as linocut and woodcut.
The Part 2 introduces intaglio printing
#SixWordStories: Monthly ShowcaseA type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories: Monthly Showcase2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

art theft spread aroundhttp://vk.com/art.ideasart theft spread around2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I guess some of you might have already seen this in loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses loish, andrahilde , Apofiss, andaglas and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist

It has come to our attention that a sizeable majority of you are having your six word stories declined by us pending approval during submission. If they are not declined, then they barely scrape through. Writing on behalf of the admins here in this group, we have discussions on what is acceptable and what is not, and the amount of pieces that are not acceptable has increased in the past few months.
The concept of a six word story can be difficult to understand, though writing a six word story can be even more difficult for some. As a result, we strongly suggest that everyone revisit what a story is and is not, specifically this blog in which we have underlined some features on what makes a six word

Before I start, a warning: I am neither knowledgeable nor experienced with prop-making materials; I had problems with the mediums I went with and, while I learned a lot in the process, I still don't know for certain what would be best to use. So if you know of something better, do go with that.
First things first. You probably know this but I would like to say how important reference pictures are. I know this is basic but I think it can't be stressed enough. T

I TRACEDYES, I traced.I TRACED8 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I've been such an idiot not to frikin yelling it out earlier. SUCH an IDIOT. It's really hard to even give ANY motivation for it. And I will not, it would only make this entry lamer and take away from the actual point I want to make.
Here's the bottom line: I traced. I got attention for it. I kept doing it, and kept lying about it, and I got even more attention for it. And even when I could actually stop, I persisted, becoming quite ridiculous. Sure, I did remove the images, I did move on, 6 months ago even, but see, the problem is, it's really not about me anymore. A bunch of people forgave me quietly, but again, being forgiven or not is not the point, because hey, me tracing, that's not THAT big of a deal in the first place, right?
Hmm, except it is a big deal.
Why do so many Disney fanartists trace? Quite simply, BECAUSE so many OTHER Disney fanartists trace. Yes, it's understood, implied, that the work isn't REALLY our own. But after spending hours on the drawing
