My deviant Art story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 2:55 PM

Yes, quite a magnificent title, but I thought I should take a moment and participate in the celebration :iconsmilieplz:

This first photo I choose to feature purposely, as a salute to the first artist photographer I started watching on deviant Art.  I think this was my first fave.

Half A Love Story by WildRainOfIceAndFire

The truth is I am having a very hard time choosing the images I should feature as there are just so many of them.  Yes, very cliché I know but very true. 
Many talented artists I discovered here, thanks to dA.
I like to watch artworks from photographers, traditional & digital artists and artisan crafters as well.

This second photo is one of the very first I have seen from Muse.  I think she carries her name very well.

I joined Deviant Art in october of 2009, so that's almost 5 years ago already.
This drawing below is among the first ones I faved.  I still find it amazing now.

Guinevere - Keira Knightley by akaLilith

And this very talented artist made me want to try drawing portraits with color pencils:

Melu by Briscott

And this digital painting is one of the first I faved as well.  Beautiful.

Skin Deep by arcipello

Dandelion by anyaanti

This last one I discovered recently.  I love everything in this photo ! :)

Happy birthday deviant Art !

Away from my desk...

Sun Oct 14, 2012, 10:12 AM


It seems I have been away from my desk for a long time... but it is nice to be back ! Today, I am trying to catch up with some of my messages.  I loved all my birthday wishes, thank you so much :iconlovesplz:

I haven't even picked up a pencil since august...  No, I am not complaining actually, (althought I so looove to draw & miss it terribly), being busy taking care of the people I love is an amazing path of ups & downs and sweet surprises as well.  Never a dull moment !:icongigglenodplz:

I did get a beautiful set of colour pencils for my birthday that I can't wait to use.  So, I hope to download something new in my gallery fairly soon ! :)

Until then, I have a request to work on a very patient person asked for about 3 months ago (Oh my goodness... already !)

Another thing, if you like poneys, you should visit :iconlost-in-equestria:  My daughter Clarisse makes very cute commissions of people's OC, ponysonas and other poney things like that.  I don't even watch the show and I love what she does.
Check out my poney : Feather Blush by Lost-in-Equestria Feather Blush Parasprite Cheeky by Lost-in-Equestria
You can spam her with llamas too, she'll love that ;p

:heart::heart::heart: Thank you again for the comments and llamas and watches.  I am catching up and will answer you back very soon. :heart::heart::heart:

Commissions by Celine

Thu May 17, 2012, 4:40 AM


Hello there!! :iconcocowaveplz:

Recently, I was invited (greatly encouraged :O_o:) to expose my art in my little town's gallery. It was a very pleasant and fun experience. My uncle who is also an artist (painter)  is the one who greatly encouraged  and kindly sponsored me.  :heart:
During that event, I was asked how much I would charge for a portrait by a few art aficionados and decided then that I should take commissions also here on :dalove:
Slots are open for three portraits.  

:bulletgreen: I only take Paypal not Dapoints. (sorry ^^; )

:bulletgreen:I will need a HQ photo of the subject(s)  

I will not draw anything nude below the waist, of course no pornography /!\

If you are interested, send me a note.  :iconflowerplz:

October Features

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 9, 2010, 6:48 AM

I will admit I have been neglecting my deviant page... :iconfishyplz:but I have been doing other things besides drawing since July.  Mostly a lot of needlework such as cross-stitch in my spare time.  And although I haven't been a very good watcher these past weeks either, I am still active in Sketchlines

I have been wanting to do a special feature to thank you for all the kind words and birthday wishes.
and there it is...

Thank you for the support and feedback on my latest drawing.:iconbowplz:
I've decided to finish my little "Fringe" collection before I free my very short attention span on to other things ;p
I started a portrait of Anna Torv (agent Olivia Dunham) and Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop) is next after that.
(See, no suspens this time... or may be I'll sneak a little surprise...):plotting:

It has been a while since my last journal... but you don't really want to read about my little life, now do you ? ;p  
The good news is that I now have a really nice marble top table to work on, and I just received some new pencils !
yay !:iconfeelingfreeplz: pencils !  
I see the joy of this news isn't thrilling for everyone. he he !:eyes:
The bad news is that I have tendonitis in my left wrist these past three weeks and really had to slow things down for a while.  The pain is gone now, I had good medicine.*devious smile*

A few weeks ago a person involved with a horse training club asked me if I would be interested to prepare for an art exhibition in June.  (Of course for this year, it won't be possible, since I don't have the time to get any artwork done in time, or not enough.)
So don't be surprised if you see drawings or paintings of horses showing up in your deviant watch starting this summer...:sun:

Right now I am striving to finish a new portrait in graphite pencils.  And it is a man.  And he is an actor... no, no other clue for you.  But you know I like to surprise you AND I like variety.:plotting:

Spring and Sherlock Holmes...

Sat Feb 27, 2010, 11:51 AM
I am ready for spring. Does it show ? ;)  
Well, February has flown by... it's been a busy month for me, in both good and bad events.  I found out how to lose those extra winter pounds, though I wouldn't recommend this at home… It's easy, really: first you get the stomach flu, and then when you're really weak, three days later you catch a super cold with a sore throat that-really-doesn't-make-you-feel-like-eating-anything-sweet, and there you go ! B-)  
Anyways, I am all better now and ready to smell the flowers.

I went and saw "Sherlock Holmes" last night and just loved it.  Being a great fan of the character from the books, I was a little perplexed about Robert Downey Jr playing that role, but he really pulled it off really well ! He and Jude Law are a great pair.  If you haven't seen it yet, I recommend it.

I am working on a new portrait now.  I like to surprise you, so I'll just say it is a lady this time… :eyes:

:heart: Thank you for your support and welcome to my new watchers !:heart:
