I'm neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I'm only very, very curious. - Albert Einstein

Heyaa everyone!
This is my page and here you might find something that could be called art to some standards
you will face a lot of randomness, you will get overdosed with jokes of Finnish weather and random journals of the great comedy show called my life
and see scribbles and doodles ... a lot of them...

and most of all ... rest assured you will get stomped by several giant Cybertronians who tend to take over my page more than often

So thanks for stopping by :D have fun...

Guys! You know what....
I actually feel like doing art trades! 
Been chasing my inspiration for so long with so little result that I think drawing something for someone else might do the trick... so anyone interested?

Could be just sketches or even fully finished pictures, however we agree...
However I'm not much into drawing bots at the moment D: 
so I might be leaning towards those who have humans or other things to offer for me to draw... 

Comment if interested and I'll shoot notes in return for the chosen souls...
don't know how many at this point... I'll probably take a few to start with and then come for more after finishing the first set

I think I promised saki-noir and spiketail94 ions ago that I'd trade with you so let me know if you're still interested X'D
I don't know if I dare to poke the "DA eclipse" - topic
even with a long stick .... but... opinions? 8C - animated 
Mah little boi has a birthday next week...:panic: 
any ideas what should I gift him? Or what you would like to see of him?
gimme them fun ideas! but don't tell Rody

Thank you so much for all participants! 
This was a fun event and you people totally put your all into it!


All the notes are out - get drawing!

When your sketch is finished, submit it to your DA gallery and remember to tagg the person you drew it for.
And also please link the piece in the comments under this journal so that others can admire them too!



Sooo the most heart filled time of the year is upon us! 
Rainbow heart 
ForgottenHope547 and I have done some plotting and figured it would be tons of fun to arrange a secret Santa gift trade event
among all these awesome peeps we happen to have around us! Just to spread around some looove! 

So here's how it rolls in case there are people who are not familiar with the secret Santa concept.

Once you join, you get an info of another participant and their wishes for a drawing. You then draw them something nice,
romantic and valentinesy - and submit the drawing for them to see. Meanwhile someone else gets your wishes and will draw you something nice
for valentines day as a surprise. The participants only find out their secret trading partner when the images are submitted! Lots of fun!


The idea of this santa event is to draw something lovely for your victim and get something lovely in return.

Minimum requirements for the drawing
pink heart bullet A sketch with some color in it. 
pink heart bullet At least ½ of the characters must be visible (so a bust or a waist-up drawing)
pink heart bullet Both traditional and digital mediums are allowed. However in case of traditional sketches, don't draw on ruled paper please.
pink heart bullet No background needed or required.

If you want to put more effort into your drawing (e.g draw full body image, add background or shading etc.) feel free, but 
those are the minimum you'll be receiving. 

This is supposed to be a rather fast event, hence it's only going to be sketches this time.


Reply with a comment under this journal
or send a note to either CuriousCucumber or ForgottenHope547
containing ALL of the following info

pink heart bullet The characters you wish to have drawn for you
You are allowed to request max. 2 characters. You can give your Santa multiple options though e.g give them 2 couples to choose from. 
- You are allowed to request canon characters, but should you do so we automatically assume you are also fine with drawing them.
pink heart bullet Links to character reference pictures 
- You must have a reference picture available for each character you wish to have drawn for you!
In case you request any canon characters, provide a reference image for them too. 
pink heart bullet Possible wishes or preferences on topic or setting.
- You can give your Santa loose ideas of what to draw with your characters. Keep the Valentines theme in mind! 
- You can also give them info of the characters relationship 
- E.g "These two characters are friends, could you draw them sharing a fun valentines meal together" or
Characters A and B are lovers and I'd love to see them kissing."
- Don't write too long descriptions or super detailed preferences since, 
the Santa is allowed to surprise you and draw something out of the blue. Wishes are just for inspiration! 
pink heart bullet A mention whether you're cool with drawing canon characters.
Since canon characters are allowed, let us know if you are fine with drawing them or if you wish to draw OCs only. 
- If you forget to state you're not fine with drawing canon character we automatically assume you're cool with drawing them. 

Once you've sent the note or comment you're in! We'll update this journal with a count of participants.


pink heart bullet You have time to enter the event till 13th of February, 12pm GMT. 
pink heart bullet 14th of February we will go through the participants and you'll receive a note containing the info of your chosen secret partner.
pink heart bullet You then have 2 weeks to finish your piece. The deadline for submitting the drawings is 3rd of March at 12pm GMT. 


pink heart bullet This event is for drawn art only, but artists of all styles and levels of skills are warmly welcome! So don't feel shy if you feel like you can't draw good enough, just join the fun! This is all about spreading love! 
pink heart bullet There are no restrictions on the theme! You can request a drawing of any character or any fandom. 
pink heart bullet Whatever you request/draw should somehow be connected to the Valentines day! Can be something romantic, fun with friends, lots of pink and hearts etc.
pink heart bullet When you participate you automatically agree on drawing whatever requested even if it's not your regular stuff. Consider it a challenge! 
 However NO NSFW stuff is allowed! Lets keep this friendly to all.
 Remember to tag your victim when you submit your pick and/or link your drawing to this journal for everyone else to see!

 Should issues arise and you feel like you can't complete your piece in time - let us know as soon as possible and we'll figure out a replacement so that everyone in the event gets a drawing. 
 Those who bail will face our wrath and we promise to fart in your general direction for the rest of the year!!
 Seriously though, keep the time table in mind and commit to your drawing! Think how happy it'll make someone! 

If you have any questions drop a comment and we'll get back to you!

Heart  We need at least 10 participants to get this rolling! The more the merrier so go and attack those comment boxes!  Heart  

If you can share and signal boost this journal! We can't wait to have you in! 

With love from :iconcuriouscucumber: and :iconforgottenhope547:

Random questions time! :heart: (Mind you, you don't have to answer these if you don't want to. )

What are your favorite art tools?

What's one thing you absolutely hate / detest / really don't like trying to draw and why?

What's something you found that has helped you grow and develop more as an artist?

What or who has inspired you to become an artist?

Are detailed backgrounds really worth the time to create?

What's one kind of art you wished you could do but currently aren't? Sculpting? Metal working? Sewing? Carving? etc.

If there was one piece of advice you'd share with another artist, what would it be?

Thanks for your time!
CuriousCucumber Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2019  Professional General Artist
Well I've always loved being interviewed :D

My favorite tools would be my digital drawing tablet accompanied with PS CC and Paint Tool Sai and watercolors. I often use regular pencils as well
and white gel pens are one of my favorite tools for effects.

I can't say I would really hate drawing something specific. Feet, noses and backgrounds are pain to me, but I still like drawing them. In general I'd rather say there are 
certain topics I'd never draw and that I absolutely detest. 

Ditching the overthinking, comparing and constant aim for improvement. My art got significantly better the moment I just decided to draw whatever makes me happy and
have a blast with it no matter what people think. 

I have been drawing since I was a kid and went to several different art schools, so I've always been an artist. I suppose my greatest inspirations have been
my fellow students in art high-school I went to and so many awesome friends here in DA. 

Of course they are. It's always not all about the characters but sometimes the scenery needs attention too and I'd say there can never be too many details.

I'm an art teacher so I'm pretty much a jack of all trades when it comes to art - however I'd love to learn lithography and 3D rendering / sculpting.

Be yourself, appreciate your own art more than anyone else's and have fun! Improvement will come as long as you keep drawing and every single line drawn takes you forward (especially the ones you feel like you failed with) so fail with pride and never stop!

Hey there Irish! Just wanted to ask. Optimus Prime has been my oldest F/o (favourite other) since I was a little kid. I wanted to know if you'd be willing to do a shippy-ish commission of my oldest (human) oc with him o3o?

I feel bad that I'm not the best with transformer anatomy, so, I never draw him out of fear of failing *coughs* so, I'd much rather spoil myself with throwing money at an artist that'd be 100% wiling to do that for me owo
CuriousCucumber Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2019  Professional General Artist
Heya! I appreciate that you asked me, but unfortunately I'm not open for commissions at the moment
and most probably won't take any commissions before summer ^^
I just want to take time for my own art and characters this spring.
Ryan-The-Rainbow Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh no, I knew you were closed, I just wanted to ask ahead of time before you were open is all~
But I get it tho! I'll ask again when there open owo
