FINAL - March Poll Period * CLOSED:icontransparentplz:FINAL - March Poll Period * CLOSED2 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

10 tips about drawing #3 - ShadingThird round of 10 simple and effective tips about drawing, this time a bit more spesific, time to delve into shading, the one area I feel I have progressed the most.10 tips about drawing #3 - Shading3 years ago in Personal More Like This
**This is my own personal take and oppinion about shading, take it with a grain of salt **
1. Shade and blend An extremely common way to shade, but not only overused but more often than not used incorrectly.
You lay down a value pref. with an HB or softer pencil and blend it into the paper from the dark to the light, but the thing here to remember is to not go too hard in blending at first, if you do it is very tricky to manipulate the values after.
Think of the tooth of the paper like grass, don´t just stomp them down on the first go, gently grace the paper with a blending stump/tissue/q-tip etc and once you start to approach the desired value you can go a little harder.
2. Directional blending Much as 1. but directional blending means you always blend following the curve of what you are drawi

Thanks for the past, present and futureI knew that the time would come, and I am so sorry, I was hoping it would be later in the future, but it is here: I can not thank you as I would like anymore. I have 4000 friends who follow my work and hundreds of fav every day (and that makes me great pleasure). Until today I wanted to tell you directly how I', grateful, but now I work 1 or 2 hours at the computer to thank, and commitments will not let me anymore. Definitely I will continue to respond to comments, but right now I want to thanks in advance all those who want to add my drawings to their collection and want to add my name to the list of friends.Thanks for the past, present and future2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Dust and CobwebsGood morning creeps!Dust and Cobwebs3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've finally finished moving all of my strange antiques into the new house I'm sharing with Mr. Cain. We've painted, and installed all of our modern conveniences into this lovely circa 1900 house.
I've been waging war on the dust and cobwebs since moving, and the spiders... you would not believe. I found their mother lurking in the most frightening of all places... the hard-to-reach crevice behind the toilet. It was a horrific fight, she being about the size of my entire hand, but I've managed to purge the house.
The house itself is strange. It's not very big, but it's the biggest house I've ever lived in. It has mysterious tiny doors that don't open, a cupboard under the stairs, fireplaces in every room, and tall ceilings (which is good, because Mr. Cain has the proportions of Slender Man). I'm already imagining the kind of hobgoblins who lurk in the walls and the monsters in the attic because something has to be making those noises at night...
I'm looking forward
Don't ART for free ...Note written under the influence of several recent situations ...Don't ART for free ...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I understand that not everyone can/like/love to draw - but that does not mean that some people have to treat 'drawing people' as children. A few days ago my friend asked me if I draw him a portrait of him and his girlfriend. I agreed without hesitation ... But when I told how much the portrait will be cost - he was angry with me, that I will not do it for free! I understand that it is my friend - but I spend my free time, energy, etc. on it. So it's no longer just fun for me. It becomes a way of life ...
I wish that those of us - involved in the drawing - were taken more seriously. Because it is a job like any other. Not sitting behind a desk in an office does not mean that I do not work as hard ...
The situation is very well illustrated here:

Look, stop trolling my page!Just because I'm not always here, you guys can't just keep spamming me or telling me "OMFG GET ON DA INTERNETS, U FUKIN BITCH!!!!111!!!11!!111!" or "OMG YOUR NEVER HERE, Y U NO BE HERE MORE?

AND NO, THIS IS NOT TO SOMEONE IN PARTICULAR. IT'S FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO DOESN'T SEEM TO GET IT.
I actually HAVE a life outside of DeviantArt, and if you can't accept that, I guess I have no other choice but to deactivate. I'd hate to do that, but more than that I hate people that can't accept that my life isn't completely full of internet and games all day.
What kind of irresponsible person would I be then? You think life would be great if I didn't give a shit about anything else but art?
I have school, AND homework! I have a nice family! I have a boyfriend! And moreover, I DO have other interests than drawi
Proud to be a Woman - Happy 8th of MarchTo be honest I rewrote this about dozen times now. It started with everything what is wrong with world today, however instead I decided to celebrate being woman and woman artists. I had a lot of chats with my oldest daughter about being woman, and she does not believe me that women are being discriminated still in todays world, so I decided to focus on positive and share amazing women artists I know about in hope to encourage others in celebrating being woman. Happy International Women's Day. I am so proud to be a woman and a mother of 3 amazing girls.Proud to be a Woman - Happy 8th of March6 months ago in Personal More Like This
