White wolves - PHOTOS (+ Kiriban VERY close)Hi!White wolves - PHOTOS (+ Kiriban VERY close)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kiriban (744 444) is very close!
And I am busy and totally stressed. I fell asleep - I wanted to sleep only some 10 minutes, but I woke up now, after some 6 hours! it makes me unhappy. I am afraid I will not make it, there are so many pages and I do not remember anything. But I want the graduation exams to be already behind me. My life style is just terrible now two more days and it would kill me
Palette Challenge!!!! Edit: 13 Entries!!!What this is about? Well... it is an art challenge for those who like a challenge, trying something new or just do something they usually won't.Palette Challenge!!!! Edit: 13 Entries!!!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
The theme is... create a piece of visual art, be it digital, 3D or traditional, with ONLY the given five colours. You can of course mix them in any way you like.
Black and white are not allowed, which is part of the challenge.
Here are the colours:
A pale yellow, orange, pinkish purple, blue and a dark violet.
OF COURSE YOU MAY MIX THE COLOURS AND DO TRANSITIONS AND WHATNOT!!!!
I know... difficult colours. That is the point of the challenge. So far I myself have no idea what I will come up with!
When you work traditionally, with what medium soever, try to stick to colours as close as possible to the given ones. It is all about creating something with a VERY limited palette. I will try that myself too.
If you think you can manage a literature piece conveying those colours somehow... feel free to enter too! I would be v

Baby polar foxes were born! + old PHOTOS of kitsHi!Baby polar foxes were born! + old PHOTOS of kits3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just read the info, that baby polar foxes were born in local ZOO!
They are probably still too young to leave the burrow, but I might visit them soon to try to take some photos
Maybe it will kick me to buy a new year ticket - I have not visited the ZOO since my year ticket expired in March but yeah, I will buy it, I think. I definitely visit this ZOO more often than just six times a year
Some ooold photos of baby foxes (taken in 2009). Kits are so adorable
Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)There are some animals and creatures in Japanese mythology. Almost of them are servants of gods. For example, foxes are servants of Inari-shin, who is a god of harvest.Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Only two creatures took part in a category of gods -that is to say, wolves and snakes-.
Chichibu had been the most active area of a faith to wolves.
Long time ago, Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto [日本武尊] (who is one of heroes in Japanese mythology) went on an expedition. But when he went through in the deep forest of Chichibu [秩父] mountains, it was in a dense fog and he lost his way. Then, one white wolf appeared in front of him. The white wolf walked a head of him and guided to the outside of the forest. He escaped the deep forest at last.
Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto greatly appreciated a help of a white wolf. He constructed a shrine. The wolf which helped him was joined in a group of gods. The god of the wolf was called "Ooguchi-no-Magami [大口真神]". (It means "a g

Happy Birthday, Jim Henson Today, in 1936,Happy Birthday, Jim Henson3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
James Maury Henson was born. He is famously know as Jim Henson by the rest of the world. This man was a major influence on me very early on. I grew up, like millions of children, on Muppets and Sesame Street. I remember seeing "The Jim Henson hour", which always ended with "The Storyteller". I was held captive by "Hans my Hegehog", "Fearnot", "The Heartless Giant" and other stories shown there. And I remembered when n he died, a remarkable thing for a girl who couldn't even spell her own name at that point. Jim Henson was god to me then, I KNEW who he was. So, to celebrate this wonderful introvert, here is art I found searching for his name.

Almost small-sized Japanese Dogs became extinct or unified to one breed of Shiba till 20C. But some breeds are still reminding quietly. One is Sanin Shiba[山陰柴], another is Kawakami Ken[川上犬].
They Kawakami Ken have one old tradition. They are descended from Ookami[狼] (Japanese Wolves).
Their fur are a bit longer than general small-sized Japanese Dogs -Shiba-. Colouring of their fur is often the "Wolf Colour", which is a mix of dun, orcher and tawny white as wolv

Japanese Dogs 1 (Akita)Japanese Dogs 1 (Akita)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A Kai Dog's photo which I submitted the last week got good reviews. So, I wrote about Japanese Dogs in the new journal.
Japanese Dogs are traditional hunting dogs in Japan. They are categorized in Spitz type as Spitz, Husky, Samoyed, Malamute and so on.
There are 6 type of Japanese Dogs now. Akita [ 秋田 ], Kishu [ 紀州 ], Shikoku [ 四国 ], Hokkaido [ 北海道 ], Kai [ 甲斐 ] and Shiba [ 柴 ]. The biggest dogs are Akita, the smallest dogs are Shiba. Size of Kishu, Shikoku, Hokkaido and Kai are the middle of Akita and Shiba. They are originally hunting dogs which adopted themselves to Japanese climate and geography.
Japan has conspicuous four seasons. Japanese summer is not only hot but also very humid as Tropical Zones. Therefore they Japanese Dogs are "heat summer proof" dogs more than other dogs of Spitz type.
They have a tough body and well-developed muscles, especially four legs grow well, bec

Venus"O'er the ache of mauve shores erotic winds billow long & deep... Her scent drips from the sky onto bare skin, bejeweling my senses like a tapestry of blushing petals besieged in rhythms of passion....

After the dreamWell. The museum exhibit ended on Sunday, and I went to pick up my paintings today. My thoughts are very full right now about the experience.After the dream4 months ago in Personal More Like This
For those that don't know, I was fortunate to be chosen as one of the artists exhibited at the Springville Museum of Art, for their exhibit on religious and spiritual art in Utah. A friend of mine found out about the exhibit and pushed me to enter, and so I did and was honestly surprised to be chosen. I am an atheist, and my take on spiritual subjects comes from the viewpoint of a nonbeliever, using metaphores to handle complicated subjects. I wasn't sure if they'd like that at all.
The day I got the email that I got in, I literally screamed. I flailed, I jumped out of my chair and danced. I called all of my loved ones and squeeled to them. For me this was the culmination of the ultimate dream. You see, when I was in art school, illustration was a dirty word. They always said, you'll know if you've made it when you are in a museum. Not a gallery,
Japanese Guardian Dog -Komainu-It's left undone for a long time to submitting my journal. I don't have interesting news, something exciting and so on around me recently.Japanese Guardian Dog -Komainu-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Therefore I will sometimes submit journals which introduce Japanese culture, tradition, history, fashion and daily life, though I'm lazy and uncertain weather.
Part 1... "Komainu".
Komainu [狛犬] are always sitting at the gate of (or at the street side of) Jinja [神社] (Shinto shrine in Japan). They are guardians of Jinja. They are just gatekeepers of Jinja. Their figure is almost like dogs which muzzles are short. Their figure and expression are very strict, but a bit cute, I think.
Koimainu are originally Chinese Lion statues. They came from China to Japan with Buddhism thousand and several hundred years ago. Lions in China originally came from India, beyond mountains of Himalaya, through desert of central Asia, and via Silk Road. In addition to it, lions of Thailand and Cambodia also originate lion statues of Ind
Photography Troubleshooting: Which Camera Phone?Photography Troubleshooting: Which Camera Phone?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I know that the answer many will give is "none" but in this modern era we do need to have a good backup camera or even a good initial camera in our phones to record things day to day. But there's a lot to choose from as the market gets more competitive. Camera phones are always changing and improving (or getting worse!). If you're main camera is going to be your phone, it's best to put some time and research into making sure you get what you need for the level of photography that you carry out. So here are the top contenders this year, in terms of camera phones.
Nokia Lumia 920
This is one of the newest camera phones - the latest windows 8 handset. It has something called 'Pureview Technology' which means that if an object or person comes into view in the picture at the last minute, you can erase it completely using PureView.
It also has an 8.7 megapixel camera. Generally with d-slr's the megapixels don't differ all that much between makes and mode
