Community Projects Giving Thanks

Hi Friends!
I posted the following in a recent journal and the response I got was amazing:

"You know--We hear rants and raves and bitches and moans but I LOVE :devart: ...I really don't understand all the whining. No one has to stay part of this community. It is a huge Internet world out there...."

I went on to list some of the reasons I love dA and why I am grateful, you can find them here: "dA Rocks My World."
I got more responses than any other of my journal posts and 100% were positive about dA!! Can you believe it?
I have been saving some of the responses because I knew this project would be underway. Here is what some deviants said:
allym007 said "dA is a wonderful community... I have made great friends here and even my mum and my daughter have joined... some of my personal friends too ! We are having the best time there..."
yorkey-sa said "Yeah i totally agree, i also

Learning to Paint Digitally, Edition 2
Welcome to Learning to Paint Digitally, Edition 2.  I am amazed at the enthusiasm of the digital community with my first article, I really did not expect such a huge response, and honestly I am thrilled.  I am so glad I was able to help so many people, so, lets get started on Edition 2 already!
The Plan:  This series is not only to give beginners a starting point, but also to help even seasoned painters with tricks or tips they did not know before.  My hope is that we all learn something we did not know before since there are so many ways to do one thing, it is my belief that reading how one person may do something will strengthen our skills as artists and help us to learn and develop our own style and techniques.
The Promise:  My promise to the community through this new series of articles is that I will:
Read each Tutorial before presenting it to you.Try each brush set myself before including it in the "lessons."T

Inktober Day 13 - Guarded
The Gates of Argonath, also known as The Pillars of Kings.

Due to personal circumstances, I am extremely late with this one. Also spent a lot of time working on it. Apart from the background and the fog effect (achieved with a watercolour brush), this is done using just the inking pen in Sketchbook, and just black and white. A real challenge, but I am satisfied.
Inktober Day 12 - Whale
Movie: 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'

"'And wow! Hey! What’s this thing suddenly coming towards me very fast? Very very fast. So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like … ow … ound … round … ground! That’s it! That’s a good name – ground!

I wonder if it will be friends with me?'

And the rest, after a sudden wet thud, was silence.

Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again.'"

Obligatory considering today's prompt. :) But I couldn't find a decent reference photo from the movie, so I decided to just have fun with it.
Inktober day 11 - Cruel
Tried to Google some inspiration for this one, when an image of Alan Rickman as the iconic villain Hans Gruber popped up. That got me thinking of his role as the Sheriff of Nottingham in 'Prince of Thieves' and of course Severus Snape in the 'Harry Potter' movies, all fantastic characters, and great villains, magnificently played by Rickman. So I decided to try to do a tribute to a fantastic actor who is sadly no longer among us.        
Inktober day 9 - Precious
Originally planned to do something with Gollum and the Ring, but so many others had planned the same. So I went with Buffalo Bill's dog, Precious. Which, as it turned out, wasn't that original an idea either
Inktober day 8 - Star
Another cult classic, John Carpenter's 'Dark Star', served as inspiration for today's drawing. Not happy with it.

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    Since August 26th, 2005, so I'm coming up on my tenth anniversary as a Deviant.

  2. What does your username mean?

    Nothing mysterious about it, my real name is Jon, my middle and last initials are A and S, and I was born in 1972. Actually, the whole "72" thing is just something I added, since I'm hardly the only Jonas around.

    Procrastinator, self-doubter, introvert

  4. Are you left or right handed?


  5. What was your first deviation?

    Approaching the Goddess by Jonas72
    Hm, I see lots of things I would do different today, but I'm actually still quite happy with this.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

    Space art/science fiction, if that can be counted as a type of art.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    I don't think I have a particular style, but I'd very much like to find my "voice" in art, I feel I'm a little too much all over the place.

  8. What was your first favourite?

    interastrum iunctio by kirby117

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    Awesome scifi art

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    You want me to pick one out of millions? Impossible!

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    This one, on the other hand, is easy, as one of my favourite writers is here: CliveBarker

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

    Difficult to say, but when I was active in the chat rooms, I got lots of excellent advice and encouragement from people there.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

    My Wacom Intous Pro that my beloved bought me.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    I'm pretty much always at my desk when creating art.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    All the good times we used to have in the Digital Media chatroom.

Hi! Do you take  request?
Jonas72 Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2018
Hey! Yes, I do take requests, however, I am in the middle of Inktober, and trying to catch up, so it will require patience if I take the request. :)
Anonnim Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2018

Please making Sigourney Weaver and Kim Basinger kissing picture.……

Jonas72 Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2018
I'm not sure that's within my abilities, as I rely heavily on references for my art.
