So i herd u liek emotes?? - Volume 87
Welcome to this week’s volume of so i herd u liek emotes. This is the 87th volume in a weekly series aimed towards promoting emote and emoticonists from the dA community. It features emotes posted within the past week from both well known and new emoticonists, as well as featuring some other great emote projects and contests.
I apologise for it being a day late this week, but i’ve made up for it by jam packing it with goodness :dummy:
:bulletred: Featured Emoticons:bulletred:
Circus ball by Droneguard just really makes me smile. The cute expression, brilliant emote shading and top notch ball animation all work together to make another fabulous emote.
The smoothness of :doyouseedemtitsbro: by capncraka is just mesmerising to watch. The bounce and eye pop move so fluently together and create a brilliant and usable emoticon.
Another brilliant emote from this week is Read me by CookiemagiK. The flu

Self Portraiture Across The DA Community
I am a landscape photographer, and there are so many reasons why I love and am in awe of nature and all its wonders. Yet I think that is why, as an admirer of art, I enjoy viewing a genre which I do not tap into in my own work. I became interested in self portraiture about a year ago, when I went to view an exhibition of it in London. Being so different to my landscapes, I found it surprising that a lot of the self portraits actually spoke to me on a level that I understood and recognised from many years of capturing and admiring beautiful landscapes and scenery. It was then that I embarked on a journey of research into this wonderful art.
A self-portrait is a representation of an artist. Whether it be traditional, photographical or sculptural.
The 'self portrait' originated as simply a means for an artist to practice and refine the skill of painting without having to pay for a model, and later, some more prolific artists used it also as a form of self promotion before photography was

I do a lot of things, and I'm not really good at that lot of things :P
Photographer (concert, random), traditional artist (pencil, markers, coffee), digital artist.

Current Residence: Enschede
Favourite genre of music: Rock/Indie/Punk/Metal/Screamo/Electro/Drum'n'Bass
Favourite photographer: Peter Hill & Sophie Jarry (concert photography)
That was 6 months ago apparently. Have been on dA once or twice since I wrote that..

Anyway, I just realized (with help of GoldenDruid ) that I had several commissions promised to people. I never finished any of them, I think. I don't work well with things I 'have' to do and tend to put them off until people get really angry >.<

Soo.. if I promised to make/do/draw something for you, remind me. You can lie. I don't remember what I promised anyway, so you can TOTALLY take advantage of me here :D

I didn't get a lot of response on the previous journal, but I guess that's due to inactivity :P

I'll try and do better this time! <3
