May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!UPDATE:May 2013 - 31 day PAINTING challenge!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This challenge was certainly a great experience for me. I made some mistakes that cost me a lot of time, for example sometimes I spent 5 hours on a piece that turned out wrong and instead of moving on I took a new paper and tried to make new work within the remaining hour or so. During second week, I've decided to keep the scrap works a part of my challenge, even though I won't publish them they still appear as a thumb on my challenge table. It's simply not possible for me to do 7 good pieces sometimes. Also, posting every day took way too much time to keep up, so I've decided I will be publishing remaining artworks through June continuously.
What I learned during this project of mine? It gave me a better idea about how much time I spend on one piece and what amount of time I waste on post-production. I had to make a few arrangement that hopefully make me more effective today. But mostly, I've tried new subjects that I totally LOVE, mostly architecture and flow
Challenge 4: Yellow - TOP 5Dear all friends,Challenge 4: Yellow - TOP 53 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Sorry for late result but we have more entries this time, and even more amazing works .
With a lot of entries therefore it took me while to choose top 5. This time, so many good entries with great concepts. It's really hard for me to pick 5 only.
I don't pick the top 5 base on drawing skills only but also the concept of their entries. But there were more than 20 entries I want to pick as winners :C. But don't worry, we will have more challenges in future.
I think there are too many good entries, top 5 are not enough actually. We call it top 5 but actually I think there are at least top 20 or more, since this time, so so many lovely entries . How about giving out top 10 in next challenge (when we have enough point again, yes). People will get 100 points each, less points but more people who will get it. How do you think about it? Because I think actually this is not a contest, it's just a little challenge for fun and a reason to draw more, practice mo

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
— Ray Bradbury
So spoke the recently departed Ray Bradbury, a seminal (possibly the seminal) American fantasy & science fiction writer. Today, aspiring sci-fi and fantasy writers study his novels and short stories as their core ed

Some things to say `v`///...Hello hello~Some things to say `v`///...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just a minor issue to bring up! It's not often that it happens to me, but sometimes it does and actually one small incident just happened last night. They have removed the image and I have already sent them a note with just a small future warning about checking sources when using bases ;v; But anyway! I just wanted to say something on the issue of tracing, stealing, etc.
First of all, I just wanted to thank those that are looking out for me and contacting me quietly when you do find instances of my art being used in ways/places where it shouldn't be. I'm glad so far with all the incidents, I received comments and notes where the tone is very calm and collected. In the future, if you see anything stolen (whether it be from myself or from other artists or even yourself!), I definitely recommend contacting the original artist first before you do anything else! See it from the "art thief" perspective a bit - although I do not condone the use of bases where it has been traced o

Its that time again!
I'll be attending MCM London Comic Con! I'll have my usual little booth in the Comic Village
Don't have much time as I'm busy preparing yummy goodies so I made the crappiest little map:
But I do hope it'll serve its purpose and you'll be able to find me!
Comic Village Table F13
F for Freddo (that frog chocolate) and 13 for unlucky! If you would like to bring me a Freddo I'll show you just how unlucky it can be hehe
I have 2 tables so number 14 is also mine, but 14s harder to remember... if you find 13 you'll find me! XD
I can't express how excited I am to be back on home soil in my hometown rounding off an amazing month with an MCM. I'd ramble about it here, but why when you can just find me there and see how elated I am ^-^
I have some really exciting new stuff. New prints, and super limited edition canvasses. You'll have to come along

You all probably know my picture "God of Evanescence":
It is just amazing how many artists reinterpreted/drew this character by me! Just have a look at all these awesome pictures!:
It makes me so happy to see, that artists got inspired by my picture!!
So, if you are inspired to draw your version of my character as well, go for it!! I will feature all the pictures, that are drawn for me on my homepage.. FOREVER!! That could mean a lot of clicks and new watchers for you! ^^ But dont let that be your main intention, you should feel inspired and have fun drawing it! Just dont forget to credit me, if you are drawing my OC! ^^ And send me a note with your finished picture!
Oh and in other news: For the ones, who didnt read my last journal: I am now on facebook! I will post my artworks, WI

Based in the Philippines, likeLucy switches between surreal pen work with muted colors and beautiful vibrant paintings, and she is equally skilled in both mediums.

There may be changes to how applying for the group works so it may not be the same as previous enrollment (aka don't commit to the stuff below just yet). Details will be revealed as soon as they are finalized.
But for now feel free to work/revamp CS, drop by chat for conversation or questions!
Remember to read this journal carefully, if you are missing components at the session's end, you will be dropped from voting. [though since this is voting... it's probably best to go beyond the minimal requirements ]

Send me a note explaining what you want me to draw and how you want me to draw it (poses, expressions, mood, style, background if you want one). A short description/OC reference will do
I'll then send you my PayPal address. I'll be able to show you the sketch and the progress of your commission. Remember, you have to pay me before I start working on your commission
You'll receive a bigger version of your commission than the drawings I post here, without the watermark
I'll be posting the commissions on :iconzellie669-commishes:

every month i will open a suggestions thread for artists you think are good and should get more attention but really dont get the views ...and trust me, i have seen artists whose skills i can only envy having far less views ....faaaaaarrr less than me
even though they are actually superior to me in many aspects.
so this is the idea.
every month i will post a suggestions for a feature journal
you post suggestions of artists you think should be featured
generally we are looking for people under 500k views but it is not a rule
from the suggestions i will choose 5 most suggested and feature them for a week.
we will be doing this every month
in this we all win.. as i too will find more people to follow XD
so roll out the suggestions!
this gonna get good!
ps NOT limited to comic artists!
pps....well f%&k! this escalated quickly XD
might have to rethink the amount of people featured per journal.... maybe 10, cant overdo it a
