Another year is almost over and it's time for my annual traditional art feature of artworks submitted in the year of 2012!
This is my favorite, the most difficult and the most time consuming art feature to make, as well as the one I'm never really satisfied with: it's a real pain to decide which works to include in this little collection when, just from this small part of the most amazing works dA is filled with you have the luck to find and see each year, you have at least a few hundreds of top
FINAL - March Poll Period * CLOSED:icontransparentplz:FINAL - March Poll Period * CLOSED3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello dear members, watchers and visitors
This is the new way to find our winner of our POLL SYSTEM: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED of this period!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins a 3 months sub, our usual prize.
Follow the RULES to VOTE...AND EVERYONE VOTING and ING THIS BLOG will enter a draw to win 100 . The participants may and should click the Favourite Button too - you have

Today I am playing around with the new way of making journals with the pm - it's so much easier It is incredible and even more fun to put together features than it was without the pm... So again thanks to :iconegil21: - this amazing person who gifted me with the 3 month pm check out her group :iconthefavouriteshowcase: and become a member if you'd like to get more exposure and even more features
I also want to thank :icon0bsidio: for her constant support and attention and patience (it is not always easy for a really good and passionate traditional artist to keep watching someone who is experimenting around with a lot of different media )

I really appreciate your constant support - enjoy this special feature for you

I want to thank you all again for your kindness on my birthday! My dA birthday comes about soon, too yay.
I should also tell you that I got a sort of commission for 10 book covers, so you'll be seeing those at some point if I'm allowed to share them here.
And, my dad can now drink small amounts of clear liquid, so we're giving him Pedialyte and he seems to like it. Hopefully, he can eat after his appointment on September 13th.
I hope you all are doing well! <3
Enjoy these works!

"Showing the Love" contest : Draw a scene in which characters show their love for each other. Now that doesn't mean it needs to be rated M or even T (though both are welcome) AND it doesn't necessarily mean that it has to be romantic love! It could be familial love! It could be something as simple as one character giving another character a flower or serving them breakfast in bed. You can use an actual scene from a live action tv or movie or you can make up your own scene using live action tv or movie characters.

325 watchers! Watchers feature no. 9 + 2014 stuffHello, dear everyone! So it has come... The year of 2014. I wish a happy new year for you all! I decided not to leave some features behind and to take special care to handle both of the feature projects. I've promised these to myself earliar, but since it is the day of revolutions, it is quite the proper time to prove that I think that this would be serious, I'll do this feature right now. I've made a resolution that I would count every single blessing, compliment, everlasting memory and "faith in humanity restored" moments, but also sad times like being humiliated, losing confidence in someone. I'll publish them next year. Hope I'll realize how lucky I am and I hope that there would be more of good things than bad ones.325 watchers!

THERE ARE SOME DAYS IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU
NEVER FORGET.... SOMETIMES THE REASON FOR
THIS IS POSITIVE.... OTHER TIMES ... NEGATIVE.....
12 YEARS AGO TODAY, I WAS STILL WORKING AT
LISBON AIRPORT FOR AN AMERICAN AIRLINE...
THE LISBON TO NEW YORK FLIGHT HAD ALREADY
LEFT A COUPLE OF HOURS EARLIER...
AND SUDDENLY... "THE WORLD WENT CRAZY"...
I SHALL NEVER FORGET HOW STUNNED AND SHOCKED WE
ALL WERE.... APART FROM THE HORROR WE WERE
WATCHING ON THE T.V. SCREEN.... IT THEN OCCURED TO
US THAT "OUR PLANE" WAS STILL IN THE AIR.....
IT WAS ONLY 20HRS LATER THAT WE GOT A CALL
FROM THE CAPTAIN OF "OUR FLIGHT", THEY WERE SAFE,
THEY HAD BEEN REROUTED TO BERMUDA.... :iconyeeplz:
THAT WAS THE YEAR I LEFT COMMERCIAL AVIATION...
JUST 2 MONTHS AFTER THIS.... I HAD HAD ENOUGH....
FOR TOO MANY REASONS....
I LOVE B&W WORKS... AND DO NOT ASSOCIATE THEM WITH
ANY NEGATIVE FEELINGS.

Portraits in GraphiteAnyone who has drawn a lifelike portrait knows the joy of watching a face magically appear before them, eyes staring back into yours. What they also know is that it's not magic, it takes a lot of hard work.Portraits in Graphite2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Graphite is one of the best tools for creating portraits. Without having to deal with color, you have good control over levels of shading, which is one of the most important factors of realism. Pencils are also very convenient, you can take them anywhere and draw people you see (if they sit still long enough.) On top of that, there's the beauty of being able to erase.
This week's feature highlights the "magic" of Portraits in Graphite. Enjoy!

New Mickey Mouse CartoonsHave any of you been watching these? Animator Paul Rudish (famous for Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack) has been hired to do 19 animated shorts featuring Mickey Mouse and company. The cartoons are, naturally, very graphic and reminiscent of the 1930's "rubber limb" style, but with a modern twist. Here's a sample:New Mickey Mouse Cartoons2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sorry fans from other countries, but apparently this is only for American viewership Although I am told that if you install something called ProxMate in your browser you can unblock them for your region...
As of this journal there are 4 of the 19 shorts currently available on YouTube under the names New York Weenie, Yodelberg, Croissant de Triomphe, and No Service.
You know Disney, I don't get you sometimes. After gutting the 2-D animation department back in April (laying off 9 long-standing top artists), and after continuously turning down 2-D animated feature after feature... you're still capa
