My Bio
I studied Biology (advanced degree) but after that I decided to push further in arts, so I went freelance :-)
Now I'm doing different things, like scientific illustration, line art, concept art, portrait... My focus lies on animals and monsters, the fauna of real and imagined worlds!

Happy New Year - Any Plans...?

Happy New Year - Any Plans...?

Hey there! It's perhaps a bit late, but who cares: To everyone out there a :party: -----------    HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014! ---------- :party: I hope you had a great Christmas, or whichever holiday you celebrate around this time, and had a fine start into 2014. I hope you ate and drank and sang and played and made art, by yourself or surrounded by friends and family. And now, with the New Year still young (kind of) and fresh, do you have any plans?

I'm back - with some thoughts about improvement!

Yay, I'm back! :poke: After half a year full of events and work and different stuff, welcome to the next episode of "Antonia's musings on... stuff." Yay! :w00t: So, let's start, with self improvement by horrible stress :D From time to time, I see an arts contest somewhere, most times on the internet, and if I happen to like the subject (for me that is fantasy/sci-fi/horror/surreal art) you bet that the time I find it, there are like 3 days left to enter, or less.

An easy, really useful tip for drawing artists*: Mark your pencils with colors. According to their hardness. With Nail polish. That's it. Bye! Wait, what? :ninja: Okay, you got me - I like to talk and to explain things. :typerhappy: Of course there's more to say :D Here's the long version: :ahoy: If you, like me, use pencils of different grade (degrees of hardness), you know that all these grea
