Oh no, I forgot my journal!Hi there,
I'm really sorry, but since I have my own blog, I forget to post news in my journal, here on dA.
So, please: Follow my blog for much much more information! I know, its in german, but there are also a lot of making-of-photos from all my recent projects!!
Take a look behind the mirror: http://dasyassy.blogspot.de/
I went through all my old journal entries today, that's why I thougt, it's time for a new one.
I deleted some stuff but also found some funny and quite interesting pieces. I've never been a girl, who was writing a diary but dA became something like that. And now there is my blog and I really love this new tool. (Well, I know...a real diary isn't public...)
Soo....what's going on in my life right now?
I still study and it's still quite interesting, funny and sometimes annoying. My best friend "escaped" from his family to Australia and comes back in the end of july. Hildesheim is still a very unglamorous town and even Hannover isn't that pretty, but
I think it's time for an update and some great news.
There are soooo many ideas in my mind for new self-portraits and I'll start realizing them soon!! This will be fun.
So be warned: There will also be a plushy, white easter-bunny-thing...
I am still at home in Dresden until the upcoming monday. The third semester starts at wednesday and I'm really excited and happy about it.
But there's something left I have to do: Two photoshootings with two great guys and there are some dates for shoots in Hildesheim, too. I hope, this will be a great spring full of new photos with much malemodel-power. ^^
Please don't forget to have a look at my blog for much more works and some "behind the mirror"-information: http://dasyassy.blogspot.de/
Follow me on.........my blog!
I'll write most of the posts in german but I hope, you'll have fun joining it.....
And no.....I'll never be on facebook.... :-p
Soon, I'll upload many works I made during the last semester, here on dA. So there will be more in my gallery than just photography, soon. ^^
I wish all of you a great time and a lovely winter.
....and don't forget to follow my blog.
Christmas is almost there....!+Zombie-FeatureHello my dear friends,
I just wanted to wish all of you a merry christmas.
I wasn't very active in uploading stuff the last months. The time is running, I guess. The 2nd semester is almost over.
Hildesheim still sucks.......especially now, at christmas time, I miss my golden, glamorous Dresden.
Little taste of it. Maybe I'll take some more pictures next week........
That's it for now. I wish all of you a great christmas!
My premium-membership is almost over, so I should use it for a last feature:
Bye bye summer....:-)Hello guys,
again there are many news and some things has happened since the last journal.
Well, first of all: Tomorrow, my best friend will return from the USA to Germany. I'm so excited and soooo happy to have him back. We haven't seen each other for two looong years.
As you can see, there are some new photos from the sea.
My sweetheart and I had been at the north sea for a few days and we also had a photoshooting there. After our vacation, we visited the M'Era Luna Festival in Hildesheim (there are advantages of living there ) and it was great!
I took many analog pictures - 3 films! Pics will follow soon, but one developed film is missing (Still in HI, but I'm back in Dresden now).
One week after the M'Era Luna and one day before driving back to DD, we had a shooting with the fabulous HANNY HONEYMOON. :iconHanny-Honeymoon:
When you see the pictures, you'll know what I mean when I say: She's a perfect model!
And last, but not least: Today I
First semester finished!Hello my dear friends,
time is running, isn't it?
I finished my first semester last week and I can't believe that it took five months. It felt like only one....
I found so many great people and friends. Of course it wasn't always easy, the last weeks were very hard, but at the end I'm really happy and satisfied.
At the moment I'm back home, in Dresden and I'll enjoy the time. Since I live in Hildesheim, I love and appreciate my home much more than before.
But a totally new surrounding brings a lot of new models and faces. Two weeks before I had my very very first nude-shooting with a male model. We realized a project, which was in my head for years. It took a lot of preperation and it was not so easy to do.... There were some sleepless nights with lots of excitement and desperation.
I haven't edited the whole series yet, but one happy day you'll see the results....... (I think, I like the analog ones most, as always...)
BUT there are many many analog (and some self-developed :heart
Feature: velvet violet and sweet pink.Enjoy!

about deviantart eclipse.(added stuff)personally, i don't like the new layout-at all. i just needed to get this off my chest.
deviantart is the last website that's good for art, the whole reason why i buy core and remain active here is because i can fully express myself with custom boxes and stuff. profile customization is one of the best things about it, now it's gonna be "sleek" and "modern" like every other website-
although i do see a lot of people who are pleased with the layout, which makes me hope that they'll at least make the old version available for those who prefer it.
if you're like me and you're extremely upset about this change, the best way to reach the staff is through this survey:
it seems like almost everybody commenting on the beta test journal has got the same idea that i do- but unfortunately i dont know if the staff is going to pay attention to the comments on here so i urge you to please consider fill

Commissions/trades!Hey guys, I just wanted to update that I am working on official prices for my commissions and such cuz I get a lot of notes about it, and i've been meaning to make a price sheet for ages now!? So know that, that is coming soon.
I always want to say that my commissions are currently closed, but will be opened again so don't worry about that!
As for trades I get a lot of people asking about trades/commissions, and all I can say about that is-- I've got a lot on my plate and after the commissions/trades I currently have my main priority needs to be my show. and I wanna work on my show, but I also sometimes have a hard time saying no to people cuz I don't want to upset anyone. But at the same time I'm learning it's healthy to say no. SOoooo, no they aren't open right now. Unless I open small batches if an emergency happened or something, but for right now it's all closed for a bit. But I will finish stuff I owe now.
Anyway, i'm just so honored by all the kind words and seeing how car
Art Review 7Well the fortnite art journal was a bust so I'm just going to do a more general browsing deviantart instead.
I would like yall to send me art from your own galleries.
If you want me and/or others to (harshly) review, critique, poke fun at or show your art on a video/livestream you can put your old or recent art below. Keep in mind not everyone will be featured. Username will likely be shown for credit. Thank.
(If you wanna repost art that you posted on past journals you can also do that)
Do you know what fires your imaginationEverybody has an imagination. Some of us have learned to use ours better than others. People say they aren't creative, but everybody is creative, because everybody has an imagination.
Imagination needs to be fed, but not necessarily in the form your medium. Because that is akin to cannibalism to me.
Do you know what fires your imagination?
-- Justin Maller ekud
spyed: Why do creative people need a community?
ekud: Everybody needs a community, it's a deviation from the norm to have creativity be a defining characteristic of your person. A central tenant of your life. However you want to say it. So to find a group of people that share that, and have that affinity, is a basic human need. To have affinity with others.
spyed: Does having access to a community of like-minded people help the creative process in your view?
ekud: Sharing your affinity with others is what's going to feed that basic need that you're not necessarily going to be able to find within arms
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
