Thank you for the Birthday Wishes!!

Sat Jul 21, 2018, 9:33 AM
Back from a family holiday to the south of Sicily (only 9 months in the planning!! D; ) and I log in to a whole host of wonderful birthday wishes and dedications - thank you so so much! :heart:

Hopefully in the next few weeks, now my exams are over I will be able to start going through the photos we took whilst we were away to get some new stock posted :) Ancient architecture, nature, volcano's..(ok just Mt. Etna) variety is the spice of life!! 

I know I've not posted any model stock for ages (sorry!!) but I do have a couple of costumes recently created which I will do stock with soon(tm)  

Love to you all, thank you again for the amazing support and use of my stock! (Sometimes wonder if you aren't bored of me yet... 14 years sharing stock on DA!! o.0 )

2017 Creative Tales

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 15, 2017, 1:49 AM
So as we head dauntlessly into 2017 I'd love to know how you are all doing!

Any creative goals for this year?
Bucket list items to tick off?
New skills to learn?

Personally I'm trying to rewire my brain for using my beautiful new 27inch Cintiq pen and touch (Thank you ReapingFields - best pressie ever other than my cameras!!)

I'm aiming to do more equine art this year - sorry if thats not what you initially watched me for but a gal has to have some hobbies that are not stock you know :P

New stock. Yer. Its coming I have have several things to put in place first.  I have no ETA on this I'm going with the flow.
I'm also doing a heath and safety course next week for work which is different and not at all what I am used to doing so we'll see how that goes :)

I'm hoping to get fit again and maybe partake in a wolf run in memory of my dad but right now thats pie in the sky since I doubt I could stagger more than a few meters without feeling like I'm having a heart attack.  (Lofty goals!)

So how about you?

I wish you...

Mega Monthly Challenge August! Now Closed!!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 2, 2016, 2:53 PM
August's contest is now closed, check back soon for Septembers challenge theme and required stock! :la:


Hey, check it out! It's a brand new monthly stock use challenge, brought to you by Elandria Aeirmid and PirateLotus-Stock The main idea is to make some art and have fun, while using previously unused stock (or stock with very few uses). Each month will have a different theme, and we will try to make them interesting and much different than what you've seen before, and we will be selecting stock from a whole smorgasbord of amazing stock providers!

The previous months challenge entries and winner will be announced by PirateLotus-Stock soon!



This month's theme: DREAM




Da Roolz


  • Use either (or both) of the stocks below in a NEW artwork (must be submitted to DA after the start of the challenge).
  • Use any other legitimate stock you like. All stock used must be properly credited with a link. If the stock is your own, mention that as well. We want to be able to trace where every little thing came from!
  • All stock use must comply with the stockers' rules. Remember, you must also credit, even if that is not part of the stockers' rules.
  • The artwork must fit the theme somehow.  You may be asked to explain if it is not clear.
  • Challenge runs from the first of the month til the last day of the month.  All entries must be in by midnight DA time on the last day of the month.
  • Submit entries by posting a link in the comments, or by sending a note to me (PirateLotus-Stock).
  • Entries must mention they are for the challenge, with a link.
  • Enter as many times as you like, but you can only win once!
  • One artist per entry (no collaborations).
  • Any digital and traditional media will be accepted as long as you can use the stock in it.



Compulsory Stock


Blacklight Pack 3 by PirateLotus-Stock
Captain Anazalia 18 by PirateLotus-Stock
You must use AT LEAST one of these two stock images in your entry.




Prizes


3 or fewer entrants: features for all entrants
4+ entrants: One winner will receive 200 points and a feature
10+ entrants: One or two winners will receive 200 points and a feature each

We're not sure how this will go, so prizes will be adjusted once we find a good rhythm.  It's probable that we will be giving more than what is mentioned here.

Ok, that's it, go create some stuff!!

1.5 million hugs

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 9, 2016, 12:07 AM
If you had told me when I first created my DA account that one day, very many years later I would be looking at a page view count of 1.5 million I'd tell you to stop smoking the good stuff.

In just a few days I will have been on the site for 12 years and to reach that many pageviews, plus the hundreds of thousands of comments and faves on my work over the same amount of time makes me shake my head in disbelief and wonder.

Thank you never seems enough when you take into consideration the incredible amount of support, kindness and friendship that has come with being a deviant and a member of the stock and resources and photomanipulation community.

I'm not sure who it was that tipped my counter over the mark but whoever you were, for a few small moments and for no other reason that you took the time to visit my page and look at my work you were in my thoughts. :heart:

The last 12 months have been incredibly difficult for me on a personal level, and I'm sure many of you have seen my sad journals about my dad and most recently my father-in-law, but what they don't show is the heartfelt and amazing notes from the most incredible array of deviants. Does it matter what country you are from, what your beliefs are when you show another human being such kindness in their moment of terrible sadness? Of course not, maybe the world needs to learn from our beautiful diversity and generosity of spirit.  My heart goes out to every single one of you who have lost loved ones.  

To my musketeers, you shine so brightly my world is made stronger by your friendship and love and I am so proud of you and us and everything we've achieved. :heart:

Thank you to everyone who has already sent me birthday wishes! :love:  May the rest of 2016 be kinder to you :hug:

:hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug:

ALSO! Don't forget our new series of stocky challenges!!



Heartbroken

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 22, 2016, 12:06 PM
Theres no easy way to ever say that a family member has passed away, but thats what I find myself doing all over again not 6 months after we lost my dad.

My father-in-law Steve passed away on the 11th of June after a very hard fight against prostrate cancer and Lee ReapingFields and I are devastated by his loss.  Words can not ever express how our fathers influence and guide us and to loose both of them in so short a time leaves a hole in our hearts which will never be filled.

Steve01 by Elandria

We were so lucky that both dad's were able to be at the wedding. 

Steve02 by Elandria

On Friday we traveled to France to visit my French family and to scatter my dads ashes on the summit of the Baou just north of Vence by Nice on fathers day. My dad now has the most amazing view looking out over the village where his mum grew up towards the coast but its hard to know his resting place is so far away.  

Steves funeral is on the 1st July - so for the time being I am going to be absent more than usual from DA - I hope everyone waiting for me to respond understands

:heart:

Exploring the Ruins - cancelled

Tue May 10, 2016, 2:00 AM


Journal Bg by Elandria


Due to the complete lack of interest and entries from everyone everywhere ever on DA, we've cancelled this contest.  We'll keep our points and slots for another time :shrug: 

Didn't realize just how bad the communities on DA had become until now.

Tincture Vale basks in the warmth of an early summer heatwave and our Cavitto foals and younglings have decided to seek out the cooler places among the ruins of the beautiful Tincture Abbey where they live - no doubt to get up to more mischief than usual!

We are looking for artwork of our young Cavitto's to start them on the path to earning back their laurels.

X2 winners will each receive:

1000 points 
*x1 slot to  #110 #110 TAS Awan - nFsl anomoly OR #1313 Imber #1313 - nSyfi  **
*x1 slot to  #231 TAS Iris #231 - silver black splash OR #257 Kobalos #257 - dapple grey on black
our undying love :heart:

x2 runners up will each receive:


400 points
*x1 slot to #258 Sirona #258 Registration image - Somatic Blood Bay OR #177 Theristis #177 - Sooty wild bay dun tobiano
our undying love :heart:

*Breeding slots will be usable on announcement of winners
**winners will choose first choice of anomaly or natural only to make it more fair

Rules/further info:
  • You don't have to be an existing member of Cavitto to participate but the prizes are mostly Cavitto oriented
  • You do have to have a little knowledge of how to draw/paint horses - please make an effort!
  • Artwork must contain painted/drawn backgrounds - no photomanips
  • References of ruins/church/abbey buildings (of which there are thousands on DA and in Elandria's stock gallery) must be properly credited
  • References of horses (of which there are thousands on DA) must be properly credited
  • You are welcome to include more than one of our babies in your art
  • You can see more information and maps of Tincture Abbey and the vale here - About Tincture Abbey Stables
  • You must submit your entry on this journal with a link to your artwork.
  • We respectfully ask everyone who enters for permission to use your art for for foreseeable future for our Cavitto in their Veritas lists - even if you don't win as this is mostly the point of the contest :)

START DATE: 10TH MAY 2016


END DATE: 10TH JUNE 2016

The Stars Look Very Different Today

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 3, 2016, 11:36 AM
This is probably the hardest personal journal I've ever written :(   It is with the saddest heart I want to say a very grateful thank you to everyone who has sent their good wishes, thoughts and prayers for my dad over the last few months, it has meant so very much to us.  There are many of you who have been on this rough journey with us, and your support and friendship is valued beyond compare - no matter how far away you may be.

My dad sadly lost his battle with lung cancer on the 22nd January. His funeral is on Friday.

2015 and the beginning of 2016 has been an emotional rollercoaster for us with dad only being diagnosed in March 2015, my wedding to ReapingFields on the 29th November at the very beautiful Peckforton Castle, and then Christmas and New Year to make it though surrounded by friends and family.

We will at least have the wedding to cherish as despite how sick he was my dad still managed to walk me down the aisle - without either of us falling over and setting the place on fire and I couldn't have been more proud to be his daughter or to be marrying my best friend and soul mate in a fairy tale location - only made possible with our parents generosity. :heart:

Wedding 03 by Elandria Wedding 02 by Elandria

My dad will always be my greatest inspiration to fight for my dreams no matter how tough things get, and to try as much as I can to stay positive - because life is cruel and far far too short.  I only hope that wherever he is  - he will be sat on a beautiful veranda somewhere on the French coast overlooking the sea, and his Porsche whilst sharing a pot of tea and my nans cake with Alan Rickman, discussing rallying events with Richard Burns and Colin McRae whilst they listen to David Bowie crooning over his guitar in the corner - after all - anything is possible.
