Table Tennis Doodles - Gain a Feature or Points

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 27, 2011, 6:51 AM
Wanna feature? Maybe some points?


Helloooo Everyone :)

Do you feel a bit creative? Why not use the DA Muro thingie in the comments section and leave me a drawing to the following topic?

"Table Tennis"

Doesn't have to be masterpiece. It could be something funny. It can be anything that comes to your mind when someone says Table Tennis (or sometimes called Ping Pong), but must be as a drawing your comment to this journal.

Why, you may ask.

Well.. I am supposted to draw/create a poster for a table tennis tournament and am out of ideas... yeah, sucks. So, I am turning to you asking you for help :blush:

What is in it for you?

Weeeell..except for the fun... you'll get a feature of three works I like best in your gallery (everyone who would contribute something will get a feature)

aaand

those artists, whos drawing, I would use in the poster would gain from me 40 points.

Till when?

It kinda did come faster than I intended.. I will use some of your drawings for the actual tournament, taking place next Tuesday, 4th of Octobre.

Pretty please? :flirty:
Thank youu and I wish you a lovely day

It was a lovely suprise, Saturday morning I came to check my messages on DA and noticed that around 10 people added Fog 01 to their favorites. I was like.. huh? ..I thought that someone featured it in a journal, but photos never had such attention. So I opened the picture and scrolled through it till I came on the DD box and went O.o for a quite a while.

Oh my! Thank you Vick and Shell :heart: for suggesting and featuring. And to everyone else for :+fav:ing and adding me to your :+devwatch: :aww:

GhostBusters!

"For our latest mission, we brought the movie Ghostbusters to life in the reading room of The New York Public Library at 42 Street. The 1984 movie begins with a scene in the very same room, so we figured it was time for the Ghostbusters to make an encore appearance."

Small - Karpaty Wine Road

Last Saturday I did a crazy trip, that I wanted to do while back, but finally this year came a chance by :) I went on a SmallKarpaty wine road that is held each year for past 4 years I think. Two years ago, my colleague took me with him and it was the first time I was introduced to wines of our country (didn't drink any other alcohol than occasional tequilla till then) .. so it was a goood experience for me.

Year 2010 and I decided to go. It was a fast plan.. I bought tickets and called like to 4 friends of mine if someone would like to join me... but no one could (they had to study for exams, had other plans etc.) So.. I was alone. I made a plan where I DO wanna go, and where I might go.. I wanted to go to Dolany, Cerveny Kamen (Red Rock) and Svaty Jur. I bought a map with local area, so I knew where I was heading. I wrote down bus times (departures - arivals) and got my bag ready and off I was on Saturday morning around 8.30am :)

What I saw.. what I bought, you can find in my album here :
SmallKarpatian wine road 2010

Rest of the story.. coming up soon. :)

The Future of our Children feature
:new:
Note: If your art is featured here, and you wish it to be removed, feel free to reply here. I'll remove your art and hide the comment without asking. Thank you for understanding.
:sun: :sun: :sun:
Growing up in today's world isn't easy. In western countries kids are feeling like part of a huge river, worried what may happen if they will get caught. Will someone help them? In eastern countries they deal with problems, children should not. And that influence their future.

But we all are born with some gens, be it from our parents or maybe our ancestors. Some of us can go through problems like a sunray through clouds; for others the problems are like a rocks on their tomb.

Myself, looking back... the childhood could be worse. But it was also bit sad. My most biggest problem I took from childhood was being sexually abused as a child..one short moment, changed me.. and I told my mum only when I was 18.. bit too late to do anything.. leaving all of us bit helpless. I guess, that is at the moment my biggest fight I am fighting. To forgive? And forget?

Anyway, lately I drawn and image (I am proud of, althrough it of course needs some updates and all) and it started something in me ..why not to make a feature about what today kids in the world deal with. Here are some images and literature, some are sad, some lovely, some part of awareness.. give it a thought what are our children going through.. and maybe they are not telling us?
To all parents out there.. I know, kids are sometimes difficult to deal with.. but honestly.. so are we, adults ;)

Traditional Values by CarnivalChild
MemoriesMEMORIES
All the shame and all the misery,
It made me so insecure.
I may look strong,
But I'm afraid and defenceless.
I feel like I'm buried in hell
All the anger, it dwells in my mind
The disturbing truth
That I'm trying to hide.
It's all inside of me.
No one can see,
The growing pain that is breaking me.
All those endless painful memories.
Memories of love, I cannot find.
Buried inside, Deep in my mind.
All the anger, it dwells in my mind.
The disturbing truth,
That is helping me loose my mind
It's all inside of me,
No one can see,
The growing pain that is killing me.

Child Rape by Red--Roses

child abuse 2 by missmurder724 Abuse by TachiTachi Child AbuseChild Abuse
There's a girl I knew,
A really beautiful girl,
With dirty blond hair,
A really young girl,
This girl was seven years old,
She had a sad tale,
She told me the tale,
The hour before she died,
That she was abused,
Her mother got drunk,
The girl hid under the bed,
Her dad got shot,
She heard a gun CRACK,
And a loud THUNK on the ground,
And saw bright blood,
Her mom went crazy,
The mother killed her true love,
And blamed the poor girl,
The girl was punished,
For no actual reason,
And was left with scars,
Her mom got worse,
And gave the girl more bruises,
And fresher black eyes,
After she told me,
I raced to my mom and dad,
And told them the tale,
We called the police,
They were told the story too,
And drove to her house,
But when they got there,
They were all too late to help,
'Cause the girl was dead.
