In three hours I'll witness the very last part of Harry Potter series! :crying: In IMAX *_* I'm both sad and excited. :la: I feel as if some episode in my life was about to end. :B After all, I somehow belong to the generation that grew up with Harry Potter (I read the first three tomes when they came out being the same age as him!)... and now seeing the end of it gives me this weird feeling.
There will be no more waiting for Harry. :I

...Just wanted to share my excitation, sorry. :XD:

Six years on dA... (gasp!)~~

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 14, 2011, 1:50 PM



Time for some reminiscences, guys!

Oh wow. I've just noticed that about a week ago I had my dA 'anniversary'! SIXth, to be exact. :ohnoes: That surely is much time... Six years ago I was such an emo high school girl, who dreamed only about dark and romantic things... And, to be honest with you, when I registered on deviantART I thought that my drawings were good. Oh yes, I really did think I could draw well! But after I created my account and started browsing, I realised the sad fact - I clearly sucked at drawing! :crying:
Psssst, want to see the very first deviation I submitted? heeere... aeterne.deviantart.com/art/Sti…

Oh my. And then I eagerly wanted to take part in dA community. After winning a 1-year sub along with a print account (yay I was so lucky then :dummy:), I really started to love this place. I applied for the Gallery Director position in a newly formed Manga & Anime category on deviantART (just imagine - it hadn't existed before!). I got it, becoming the first Polish dA representative (and I'm still very proud of that fact :lol:). For a year I was part of something truly amazing, helping people, organising stuff, choosing Daily Deviations and generally trying to make deviantART a better place (even if it was only cleaning the report desk;)).

In the meantime, my college studies started and I didn't have so much free time anymore. I resigned from my duties and became a senior member - this is exactly why I have this little ` thingy next to my nickname, and why my premium membership will expire only when hell freezes over (which, accoring to my subscription info, will happen in 26 years and 7 months, so beware ;p). I arranged a few contests, but it was the end of my dA activity. I decided to focus only on improving my skills.

And here I am now, six years from my first steps. I've seen thousands of dramas, met hundreds of WONDERFUL artists who inspire me now, got four DDs (:faint:), and almost 3000 of amazing followers who motivate me to work harder and harder with every comment and fav. I'm so grateful for the time I spent within this community, it definitely changed my way of perceiving and - most importantly - creating art.

THANK YOU!!! :heart:

Thank you so much everyone for yesterday! Never before have I received so many comments, favs and watches, I'm still stunned! :wow: I'd like to welcome my new almost 250 (!) watchers, I'll do my best to meet your excpecations!

Also thanks for your kind words and critiques, they motivate me to work harder and harder. :salute: You're all so awesome. :aww:

/edit
~~~~

What the! :ohnoes: *gasp* I got a DD! Wow! That's something I DEFINITELY wasn't expecting! When I saw my message counter growing I thought - "What the hay, I've just received my last DD for a tutorial, this can't be it!" - but in fact my last DD was from over a year ago, and damn, I must admit that time's running incredibly fast O_O

GAIA by Anako-ART

Anyways, I'm so, so GRATEFUL to Esheye-Telari for suggesting and WDWParksGal for choosing my GAIA work! You don't even know how happily surprised I am! :lol:

Want a free painting? : (CLOSED!)

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 16, 2011, 2:35 PM



WOW PEOPLE! You're so fantastic! I'm overwhelmed by so many beautiful characters! :love: My offert is now closed. THANK YOU so much for taking part! There's so MUCH reading right ahead of me! And only two to choose.... darn, it will be hard. X_X

:heart:

~~~~~~

edit: oh wow, I didn't expect such feedback! you're amazing with all these characters, so much variety and imagination! *_* Now I'll feel guilty for sure when it comes to choosing ;_; (and I can't imagine how HARD it will be X_o ) But feel free to write down more requests if you haven't done so yet, I truly enjoy reading them!


OK guys, here's the deal:
I'm planning to open commissions soon (once I'm done with some current tasks) and since I need commish examples, I decided to paint two pictures for free beforehand. :) These will be portraits and waist-ups (later full bodies), so if you like to have your character (or anyone else) painted by me, please write in the comments below everything I need to know about them (apperance, personality, bg story, references etc). Then I'll choose two that I find the most appealing to me, and paint them.

You have time until Saturday. ^^

If I don't choose your request, please don't feel bad. I don't have much time nowadays (and need money ._.), even these two are extras I hadn't planned. ; ) After that you can always order a commission from me! :>

Waiting for your descriptions! :love:

8 Characters Project - UPDATE!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 21, 2011, 1:00 PM



So time to announce the project I mentioned in yesterday's journal. Recently I realized that I'm becoming too lazy with my drawings in a technical way. I thought I'm not moving on by focusing on the same things all the time (particularly: FACES), so I gave myself a CHALLENGE. A challenge where I could practice faster painting, whole figures, unify my style (considering I have any), and give some love to my dear forgotten characters from my future-written-story (I was haunted by remorse because of that x_x).

In a few moments I'll submit a deviation with sketches of my OCs. :la:

These are the eight main characters from my story, the ones that push the plot forward, although not all of them are most important (there are far more important chars, but rather too boring to draw ;p). I'll be now painting them one by one and see if I can manage such a huge task I gave myself. Because yeah, I don't have to. But I WANT to. :ohnoes:

I'll submit the finished drawings once ALL of them are done. Bigger motivation! And then you'll help me with giving names to some of them, because the current sound really bad. :P

Then... wish me luck I guess! :XD:

~~

UPDATE Three characters are already finished! :D

Just a quick note: if you noticed me today sending one deviation multiple times, then sorry for that, because my internet went crazy and I didn't see it was already submitted x_x Recently I'm having many problems with browsing dA in general (sooo sloooow), I wonder if it's only me! >.>

I cleared all my messages! o_o

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 27, 2011, 7:54 AM



So it happened. My message box is totally empty! Came through over 10,000 deviations and 11,000 feedback messages, I did! Although I made sure to glance at every deviation and read every comment, I unfortunately wasn't able to comment and reply to everything since it would take me AGES. ;< From now on I'll make sure to reply the moment I read something, otherwise I'll always be postponing things until I decide it's too late and delete them again xD Meh.

If you ever asked me a question with no answer, please do it again. ;)

And thank you so much for your watches and favs :blowkiss:

I'm starting a big project tomorrow so be sure to check your inbox frequently :3

Cleaning gallery + changes

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 13, 2011, 7:39 AM



Hi there : ) Well, I'm back from Singapore with a big grin on my face and lots of stories to tell. And, with a feeling that it's maybe high time to refresh some acpects of my art-life. I decided to clean my dev gallery a bit, moving all the old and ugly stuff to scraps , rearrangin the profile and making a new journal skin. I don't think I'm done yet, when I finish some new pictures I may continue the cleaning, I guess. I want my creation to be fresh and don't look back anymore. I hope it will also reflect in my art.

Thank you for all the watches, favs and comments! :heart: I'm afraid I won't have time to thank for them personally, but I'll surely answer to most of your comments! Till next time ^^

Singapore here I come

Hello everyone :) There's much happening in my life right now, but maybe you noticed that recently I've been a bit more active than in the past six months - that's because I finally finished my huge commission of 16 coloring books for kids! :dummy: I'm so happy to finally have some free time to paint & draw for myself and practice, as you probably see from my recent deviations.

But soon I'll be offline for about two weeks, because... I'm flying to Singapore! :dance: This is a belated (VERY belated) honey-moon trip for me & my dear hubby KacperSpala. I'm going to visit as many places as I can, and buy as many things as I'm able to carry :XD:. Although I'm a bit nervious before the flights, since it'll be my first time in airplane. O: And we'll spend about 15 hours in air in only one way! :faint:

I can't wait! :la:


Ah, and from other news - I totally fell in love with Dragon Age: Origins game. I you haven't played, do so right now!

ALSO, I've recently been thinking much, MUCH MORE about my future-written-story. So prepare for sketches & illustratons of my characters very soon. I'll introduce them to you once I come back.

Lastly, I'd like to thank everyone for the watches & favs you're giving me. I'm so happy and very glad to receive them! You won't be disappointed. :hug:

"Rapunzel" is a German fairy tale in the collection assembled by the Brothers Grimm, and first published in 1812 as part of Children's and Household Tales. The Grimm Brothers' story is an adaptation of the fairy tale Persinette by Charlotte-Rose de Caumont de La Force originally published in 1698. Its plot has been used and parodied in various media and its best known line ("Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair") is an idiom o...f popular culture.

"Tangled" (previously known as "Rapunzel") is an upcoming American 3D animated film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and starring the voices of Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi. It will be the 50th animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, planned for release on November 24, 2010. The story is largely based on the classic German fairy tale Rapunzel by the Brothers Grimm.

Comic

Hello everyone :) I haven't updated my journal for long! So It's high time to do so.

I've just submited the last page of my short comic - the one I made a few months ago for school notebooks. If you haven't checked it out yet, you definitely should now ;)

You'll find it here: aeterne.deviantart.com/gallery…


I hope you'll like it! The story is very easy and rather naive, but after all, it's for kids!

Cheers, I'll try to update my dA more often :)
