Thank everyone who visit my page during my absence, very appreciate all the comments you left and message.  :heart:
I never expect they were still attracting views even after I stop updating.
It seems will take quite some time to go through all of them, but I will read every of them for sure.
I intend to keep up the updates this year, may not be as frequent as I was, may not be all about Avartar series. 
I just realized how much I like drawing and how deep Im spiritually attached to it.
Even it is imperfect and immature,there is something I can only express from my own work.
Thank you for liked my work more than I did. 
Love you.

Totoro Journal Skin by starrily

Feature my Favorite Avatar cosplayers in dA

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 14, 2012, 7:53 AM
Just back from Armadeggon, I saw so many amazing cosplays that made me excited.
I love cosplay for quite some time, I think cosplay is also a kind of fanart in a more realistic from.
I always feel that cosplay deserve more attention and favorite in dA,
So here I'd like to feature some of my personal favorite Avatar cosplayers with their best cos photos.
I know there are lots of amazing Avatar cosplay out there, but I can't collect them all.
The cosplayers I featured here should have their own dA account and have at least 3 pieces photoshots of the chatarcter in their gallery. I  love their works not only because they represent the appearance well, but also I saw the spirit of the characters.
More than welcome to check their homepage by click their icon/Avatar.
So here we go!!~

this is the "37 postures Tai Chi" I'm gonna to learn soon, Check out the demo >>> www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRKlfa… (From 00:14)<<<, I adore Master Guan's physical movement and spiritual state, so soft and slow but firm and continunes.
water style ~ sexy yeah~~

Let the devil sleep (Azula) by kelly1412
Please let her sleep rather than being ruined.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit:
I love all your discussion here! Lots interesting ideas, I hope I could favo them!!
I thought I've read too much review about her, but every time I upload a new work/journal about her, I never fail to be amazed by some powerful and unique thoughts.
I thought words can't help my current emotional wound, but it starts to work and I feel much calm now.
Azula fans are the best!!! love you guys!! and Be united!!
If only I can be a joint.

PS: Grey DeLisle back to twitter now!~
Thank you all for always participating in my polls/surveys, and sorry that I can't reply to every comment personally, but they are indeed helpful and interesting, each comment has brought me new ideas and inspiration, so here, I have some strategies to share with you, content based on the results of my latest poll. kelly1412.deviantart.com/journ…

It is true that your artwork is the key to all the attention you receive. However, there are still some strategies that could help you get more attention, in terms of comments, self-achievement, favorites and watchers. In this journey I'll share with you some strategies that I've discovered through my own personal analysis and observation.
(they've all been tested, but no guarantee if it will work for everyone.)
And it will not directly make your art better, only you have that ability within yourself!

----------------------------------

For people who are waiting for COMMENTS

--Want others say something to you? Then say something to them first.
Which means you need to open your heart and humble your attitude first, and show people you're willing to communicate constructively. There is no shortage of talented artists on dA who earn thousands of favorites for each piece, but not many comments because they never seriously fill up their description column. So comments number is definitely and directly linked to your attitude.

--There are basic two types of comments: one is about your artwork, and the other one is about your thoughts/ideas.
So make sure you write a clear description involving both aspects (like why you decided to make a particular piece and how you made it, problems you ran into along the way, new things that you learned in the process...), that way you expand the chance of receiving more comments. Some basic info about the artwork, (like drawing/making software, tools used, time cost, inspiration, reference source, etc.) never hurts either.

--Also, and please believe me on this one, leaving comments after favoriting someone else's work will more often than not reward you on your comments number as well.
It not only helps establish you as an active member of the community, but in the process of leaving and reading comments, you'll also notice/pick up on more tips that could help your own artwork improvement.

--Moreover, You might've noticed that dA added a new function this year, it shows thumbnail as well as its comment numbers. I believe some of you tend to check out those works with more comments, however, comments number not only counts the comments a piece has received, it counts the replies as well. I'm not encouraging you to falsify numbers on a piece and pretend it is popular, just simply replying to all comments with a smile icon won't do you much good in the end. Cheating replies puts people off, makes them feel unimportant. What I mean is, if you open your heart and communicate what you truly feel and interact with your audience, it will pay off for you much easier than in past. And if a group of friends always give each other first comments, you'll grow closer together and evolve as a whole.
comments.

--last but not less, tips for Fanart.
It is undeniable that fanart draws more attention among all categories in dA. But please be aware at all times that the original show is the true hero, and always keep in mind what is your own art value as a fanartist.
However, do consider putting some narrative into your fanart work, rather than just making a plain portrait (unless you're like me, and just like the stuff you draw). The advantage of fanart is there's already a world and narrative background established. So there's nothing wrong with taking those advantages and making them work for you, share with people who love the same show your brilliant thoughts/ideas to garner their comments.

-----------------------------------

For people who mainly focus on their OWN ARTS

I really admire people who are always proud of their work, generally it can be hard to enjoy the true value without others' encouragement, so this self-approval and satisfaction is incredibly precious and rare. If you know what you want, keep developing your own style, and persist in it. Gradually, an audience will come to follow you, and they will do so because they too appreciate what you create for what it is. So trust in your own judgement and keep working to better yourself and your art.

-----------------------------------

For people expecting more FAVORITE and VIEW NUMBER

--First, A high view number is likely to bring you more favorites.
--Put more time into one piece and put your heart into it, people will be touched by your effort. A truly exquisite piece of art earns the it's own favorites.
--Don't underestimate the power of idea, it can sometimes add more to a piece than you expected.
--To know what your audience wants to see, or guide them to see what you want them to see.
   A good and clear use of (thumbnail) link to some relevant art could earn your old work more love.
--Always submit your art to the right group.
Groups are a very advanced function of dA, it links your work directly to your intended audience. But never submit to 10 groups in one day. Separate submission time may bring you a more broad audience. Also submitting to various groups will bring in different people with different interests as well. And always read group rules before making any submission
--Find the best submission time.
Making submission on peak time will provide your art a bigger chance to be viewed and favorited, especially for people out of the USA, check the time zones of other countries before making a submission. Checking if your friends are online before submitting is another little trick.
(I usually update before sleep, it's the only spare time in my daily life ^^b, and can't reply until the next day, which is not very good)
--Use the right tag, and put key words in the title of your work, so they are easier to be searched for.
--Sharing your work on other websites like Tumblr or facebook will draw significantly more traffic to your deviant homepage. (And please protect your copyright interests before sharing your works)


-----------------------------------

For people who love WATCHERS

Three kinds of people likely to win more watchers in dA
-- Talented artist: not much deviant, but each of them possess an innate ability and skill that is absolutely stunning.
-- Regularly updating artist: lots deviations presenting interesting ideas with reasonable quality.
-- Kind and active person who is good at making friends. Everyone loves a sociable, friendly personality.

-----------------------------------

Conclusion

All in all, you artwork will always be the essential element that makes up an attractive gallery, the methods I mentioned above will just help you to promote them and gain much valued feedback. It won't help your art skills improve however, that lies with you the artist, and you alone hold the power to improve yourself and create ever more beautiful and inspiring works.
Quantity improves your skills, while quality levels up your gallery.
So practice as much as possible, but only submit the best.
Put more time into one piece and put your heart into it, and it will all pay off in the end.
Love what you're doing, If you don't love your work first and foremost, you can never expect anybody else to.

And lastly, tell ya one more method that faster than any ways above is: Pray.
Pray for the number, it will grow! :XD:  Seriously, according to my gallery stats there is a huge tuning point took place in this April, 3 times higher than before , and I didn't do any significant changes. But that was when I started to pray, not for the data, but for every of you. :heart:
  

I'm curious about featuring others' work in one's journal for the purpose of benefiting those pieces and getting them more attention. Maybe I'll make a project about this feature and welcome everyone to participate then.

-----------------------------------

Hope you enjoyed my first experiences sharing journal.
If you find this sort of thing useful, next time I could talk somewhat about the secrets buried in your Deviant's data and gallery stats ;)

kelly1412@2012.7
Edited by Vahnati Special thanks
I'm leaving from tomorrow until 7 July.... with potentially until 15th.
Don't miss me too much ;)

Love you, All the best~ :heart:

-----------------------------------------

plus some Q&A I often be asked.

Q: Are you draw by hand? what program you use for digital coloring.
A: All the works you see in my gallery are colored digitally, those more dynamic and texture ones are made with photoshop eg.fav.me/d4pwojf, those smooth or cell style pieces are basically made with PainTool Sai. eg.fav.me/d55g2og

Q: Are you use custom brush in Photoshop?
A: Yes I do use custom ink brush and I made them myself to fit my drawing hobbits. But it's not necessary, use preset brush can get the same out come just cost more time.

Q: How long it takes you to finish a piece
A: It really depends... from 30 mins quick doodle (that's why I call this doodle fav.me/d4z2kd0), to 10 hours full detailed piece fav.me/d4gumwm. But most is around 3-5 hours.

Q: Do you use tablet?
A: Yes I do, I mainly use ET0507, which is an 8-year-old wacom tablet. I have a bamboo-one, but it doesn't work with Sai so far which is quite annoying. I have an intos 4 in my studio. And... for me the price of product didn't make much difference...

Q: Do you take drawing class.
A: I took about 3 month drawing class for basics in high school, but those digital technique are all learnt from my firends and other artists. I wish I could take more drawing lesson, they do help.

Q: Secret of draw better
A: Practice, Practice, and Practice with your brain!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

One more issue is kinda annoy me, like it annoy most of Artist:
Please credit me properly (with link back to this page) when you reblog my work.

Recolor, modify, insert to video, use as fanfic cover ... ect of my work, Please ask for my permission first, I'm not always comfortable with my art being used in all occasion.  

I only regularly post my work here in Deviantart, which is the domain page of my work, Tumblr kelly1412.tumblr.com/ has more casual doodle and pixiv with selected works www.pixiv.net/member_illust.ph…
other than these three places, well...I don't know...
Have you known that the Dark Horse Comics decide to publish another trilogy of comics set "The search" after "The Promise" trilogy, and will be written once again by Gene Yang, art by Gurihiru. This time, the main characters will be the Fire Nation royal family, particularly Zuko and Azula, the story will mainly explore the biggest unsolved mystery in "Avatar" lore: what happened to Prince Zuko's mother? Also, Avatar Aang. Toph, Sokka, and Katara will make appearance, but in a more limited role than they have had in previous comics.

more details please check www.comicbookresources.com/?pa…; and avatar.wikia.com/wiki/The_Sear…



I think lots of you have already heard this news, but just in case you are not, and with you being someone who loves Azula, I should put this great news again!!
Thank you so much for everyone who send me this news!!

I was just finishing reading the second volume of the <The Promise>. It was fantastic and so eager to see the next volume, and now...Wow! the above news just made my day!! I'm so exited that finally they gonna tell us the story about Ursa and royal fire family, and I can't wait to see Gurihiru's Azula!! Although, I don't have the feeling that she'll be treated as one of the main character there. But really hope she could have a good development or at least be treated Justice, not just act like a pure villain. I always feel that Azula actually know what has happened to Ursa and where she was, and she may stop Zuko from finding her for some reason. Really looking forward to it!!

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

The other "journey" is about myself. Some of you may find that I'm not very satisfied with LOK's finale, and asked me if I'll stop drawing fanart.

Thank you for asking and cares my stuff. It is true that I didn't feel much inspiration after the season final, and... I'm sorry to say that I probably won't do much fanart for LOK before the second season airs.
BUT, it doesn't mean I'll stop drawing. My love towards ATLA and my girl Azula haven't burn out yet. I'll definitely carrying on this journey. There are still lots sketch waiting to be finished. Further more, I actually hoping to do some short comics, I had some narrative in my mind for quite a while, so I hope I can make some of them as well.
just give a quick announcement, although I have no idea how long will it take to happen...^^;
"way back" a 2 pages comic for Toko;  
"firebending prodigy" a 3 pages full color comic for Azula
"Monster", a story between Azula, Zuko and Ursa, up to 10 pages.

and really not sure if I got the capability to make it turn out well...;__;

But firstly I really want to sit back and take a basic drawing practice, feel so much need to be improved!
