All the Best for DA’s 17th Anniversary! 

As the Head Librarian says at our Local Branch, it's been BOTH fun and educational!


I wanted to try something a little different; and, fit some of my favourite things about DA, into the template.

There are so many fantastic Photomanipulators on DA; and, I’ve learned so much about digital art and editing, I wanted to try to use Mixed Media, to incorporate some of that as well.

This combines some of the Line Art and Stock Artists, which I’m so grateful for; since joining DA.

So, Happy Anniversary; and, many more, DA!


This is a variation on, Paint Your Wings (2015), which I coloured, based on DestinyBlue’s Paint your Wings Lineart (2011) and Remnants Lineart (2007);

With a few new elements added, from Blue Peace, based on DestinyBlue’s Saving at Oielvert - lineart (2005) and Treasure Hunter Lineart (2009), done for DA Pride Flag, this year.


Thanks to the Line Artists and Stock Artists, and Group Administrators, and everyone, who are so generous, on DA.

[As Mel Brooks says, God obviously loves a good story.

[Could the studio update the CGI, but keep the original performances? Ann Baxter, Yul Bryner, et al are brilliant  

Charleton Heston is CGI, right?

It makes me thinkg makes me think of Rise of An Empire. As my history professor used to say, talking about Josephus, ‘Most of these things probably never happened. But, it makes for a good story.’]


Thank you for your patience.

This was fun.

Take Care and Stay safe.
