The Kev and Will Olympics

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 11, 2011, 8:42 AM
Ok people, as you may have seen from the recent deviation, I have something a little random, me and a friend are organising The Kev and Will Olympics at some point next summer, its going to be huge, but right now we desperately need your votes on who you think will win!!!

Kev or Will??

There will be various games and events taking place, but all we want for now is a pure gut reaction from the people to decide the favourite, so if you can spare a couple of mins then go to the deviation page and cast your vote by stating either 'Kev' or 'Will' in the comments!

So! Who do you think will become the hero of the gods? There can be only one!

So comment either kev or will to place your vote!
The choice is yours...

Thank you!


The Kev and Will Olympics
There can be only one.
One nation to win, to fight until the bitter end,
until one may fall and the other rise up amongst the gods!
To prove themselves as the greatest!
The Kev and Will Olympics!

Wowwws I won a competion!! :D My Angelina Jolie pic was the winner of The group Portrait-Love's 'All about hair contest'
I am soooooo flattered that I won :D So many amazing and awesome entries, Im really happy and amazed that I won.
I had an interview with the founder of the group and if any of you are interested, it is on this link… orrrrr if you cant be arsed to look there it is as follows:

Interview with Anthony-Woods
Sat Aug 27, 2011, 12:00 PM by *FeenArt
We are proud to present our "All about Hair"- Winner:

Portrait-Love: Please introduce yourself.

Anthony-Woods: I am Anthony Woods, I am 25, live in the UK in a lovely village called North Fambridge and I love pencil drawings!…

Portrait-Love: By having a look into your gallery we can see, that you are an awesome drawer.
So please tell us how you come into this. And is it just a hobby, an addiction or your profession?

Anthony-Woods: I decided to draw pencil portraits when I was about 19, and a friend asked me if I wanted to do a hand made present for Christmas instead of buying something, so the only thing I knew I was any good at was drawing, so I drew her the Audrey Hepburn picture. This was the first proper portrait I had ever done, at school I was totally put off art, as they just made me do things I didnt want to do, I didnt draw a single portrait at school! But after doing this piece I loved it so much that it became more of a hobby and I just kept drawing more and more! Now after a few years in graphic design, I have just (in March this year) taken the plunge to take up my art as a full time profession.…

Portrait-Love: When do you started drawing? What are your favorite characters to draw? Why?

Anthony-Woods: I have been drawing all my life really, but only the portrait side of things since 19. I think my favourite characters to draw are the darker pieces with lots of character to them such as my recent drawing of Batman, I love these as they are great fun to draw and to capture the mood and intensity of the character in the work, you can really get into these type of pictures.…

Portrait-Love: How long do you need for a drawing?

Anthony-Woods: I usually spend between 50 to 80 hours on my drawing, they usually take me a week or just over a week to complete.…

Portrait-Love: Which character will be your next drawing? Why?

Anthony-Woods: My next character I am working on is Iron Man. I am drawing this for an exhibition I am going to be doing at a comics and collectables store called Red Sun, hopefully the people in there will like it!…

Portrait-Love: Is it possible to buy your work?

Anthony-Woods: And yes, all my work is for sale, as are prints of various sizes and finishes…

Anthony-Woods: Just want to say I am super flattered to have won the competition and very flattered as there were so many amazing entries, thank you!!

Why hello there, I have some super awesome and amazing news for you all and it is that I have my very own art exhibition coming up!! :D Yaaaaaay! :dance:

All of my artwork will be on display and available to buy, as well as having the added option of being able to purchase prints of them too! :)

This rather awesome and amazing event will take place in North Fambridge, my cool lil village in Essex in the UK, on the 12th March 2011. (full address see end of the journal!)

There shall of course be drinks and nibbles to munch on during the show which will take place between 10.30am till 4.00pm. And also I have acquired the services of a super cool jazz pianist who will be playing from 1.30pm - 3.30pm so that too will be damn good.

And the best of it is that everyone is invited!! :D yaaaaaay! :dance: So if you fancy a trip to my humble abode then do make a date in your diary and come down and see it, I sure would love to see some of you guys who have supported me and given me such great encouragement and inspiration to keep pushing with my art, and helped me to develop and improve.

Aaaaaand i must add that it is soooo soooooo worth coming around the world to see it too if you live abroad! haha! :D

I hope to see some of all you fellow deviants there :) It will be super amazing... I promise! :D
