Hi my friends,
I haven't posted a journal for some time. Today I do it because of Lakandiwa - John Paul 'Lakan' Olivares from the Philippines. He is traditional artist doing amazing spiritual art. He is mostly using metallic gel pens on illustration board. I am so deeply touched that I am doing this art feature for him today.
Enjoy the magic!
My dear friends,
I wish you all and all your loved ones a very happy and joyful new year 2017! Thank you for all the feedback, the support and the friendship in the past year. I am looking forward to all the new projects and other things that will come!

But I am also selling this calendar (slightly different format than on DA - A4, 27,9 cm x 21 cm) on my personal website for a very reasonable price. Get this calendar for € 17.90, this is about USD 19.00) plus € 8.00 (USD 8.50) for shipping and handling.
So if you are interested please go to my website and order the calendar:
The buying process is in German but I am sure you will manage. If not simply send me an email with your order or buy on ebay.
this is just a short note to say thanks to all the people who sent me nice birthday wishes last month! That was awesome and sweetened my day! To save some time I reply to all comments at once instead of individually or not at all.

today I do a little feature for an artist from Hong Kong. LAIliklik
He/she is a tradtional painter with an original drawing style but very little recognition on her art so I am featuring some of her drawings here in my journal. Please flock to her page and give him/her some love! Here we go:
Yeah, it finally happened, I reached 50,000 comments!!! I gave it to Sopheirion who received 100 points just because of it. But he/she wasn't the one who guessed the date right. There are two people who did. So the winners of the 500 points prize are:
Oh dear, I was quicker than I thought. I exceeded the 49,950 comments mark so the contest is closed now which means now we can only wait and see when I complete the 50,000.
When will I make my 50,000th comment? I am at 49,900 comments now. Only 50 comments left until this contest will be closed for entries. Make your guess now!
a very rare anniversary is approaching. Soon I will give my 50,000th comment and this is quite something. My general gallery stats as of today say the following:
Overall, their deviations received 67,009 comments and were added to deviants' favourites 607,235 times, while Lilyas made 49,840 comments, about 12.06 comments per day since joining DeviantArt. This means that Lilyas received 13 comments for every 10 that they gave.
The deviation with the most comments is Perfection with 2,154 comments, while the most favourited one is Luxury, with 35,300 favourites. The most viewed deviation is Luxury with 490,277 views.
91 favourites were given for every 10 comments.
Every 7.7 days Lilyas uploads a new deviation, and it's usually on a Wednesday, when 87 (16%) of deviations were submitted.
The busiest month was May 2008 when 25 (5%) deviations were submitted.
The majority of deviations are submitted to the photography gallery (239), while the favourite category was nature > flora with 80 deviations.
Comments per deviation: 126
Favourites per deviation: 1143
Views per deviation: 16,527
Comments per day: 16
Favourites per day: 146
Deviation views per day: 2123
Pageviews per day: 597
Make your guess about how many days it will take until I make my 50,000th comment. The stats are saying that I gave about 12 comments per day since I joined DA. Be aware that I don't comment that much anymore these days! I will keep my stats visible so that you can follow my activities. The deviant who comes closest with their guess will win
- Comment in this journal.
- Include the predicted date (and optionally the amount of remaining days) in your comment.
- You can only make ONE comment that contains a guess. If you guess more than once you will be disqualified.
- It's not permitted to edit your guess.
- As soon as I have given my 49,950th comment the raffle will be closed and guesses can't be made anymore.
- In case there is more than one person who makes the same best guess the prize will be split among them.
Good luck to all! :bademoticon:
I am not writing a lot of journals anymore because of the lack of time though I am still regularly around. Today I want to remember two of my good DA friends who died recently: AnnaKirsten († Jan 2016) and Nameda. († Apr 2015?) I am still in shock and disbelief about their passing.
Anna was a close friend of mine for the long time. We knew each other since 2006 and we personally met on Christmas 2007 in her home in England. We shared the love for fractal art, photography and cats. She was a very talented, loving and funny lady. She also was the founder of t he successful group Creative-Obsessions. For a long time she struggled with poor health. In the end her life was claimed by cancer after a short battle. She will be forever in my heart! THANK YOU for the time we had, dear Anna!
Natasha was from Germany, like me. We also were friends for a long time. We often exchanged views on technical stuff like Photoshop. She was the creator of this wonderful project called "Angel without Wings". She gave this title as an award to people who have rendered helpful services to the community. This project is now in the hands of DMD-CT. I knew she wasn't well at times but the message of her death shook me up. I don't even know when exactly she passed away. Her DA friends learned about her passing in December 2015 but we haven't heard of her since April 2015. I hope you are in peace, dear Natasha, wherever you are now!
What I really want to do is to create two artworks in Anna's and Natasha's memory but at the moment there is not enough time to make personal creations. In the meantime I'll share some of the artworks of Anna and Natasha. May they rest in peace.
Please also read im memoriam posts by CaroleHumphreys - In honour of our group's founder: Anna Kirsten and DMD-CT - In Loving Memory of Nameda
On a lighter note...
I received a new Daily Deviation today. That came out of the blue since I am not very creative in recent times anymore. So especially thank you to GeorgeXVII for suggesting my artwork Liquid Autumn for a Daily Deviation and also thanks to MarcosRodriguez for giving the feature!
Update July 15, around 9 am Central Europ. Time...
Tadaaaa, we have a winner!!! The last 3000 views went so quickly that I didn't even see it coming. A few people from the US stayed up half the night to monitor my profile. Wow, thanks for your enthusiasm! The first one who sent in a screenshot showing the magic number is....
You won 250 Points
Thanks to everyone who joined the game! It was fun.
I hope you all enjoy the wonderful summer time! Nature is blooming and spreading... yay!
Update May, 30: 80,000 PV to go.....
Update June 8: 60,000 PV to go.....
Update June 29: 30,000 PV to go.....
Update July 4: 20,000 PV to go.....
Update July 11: 10,000 PV to go.....
Now my little game goes into the last round. Only 10,000 views left until the counter exceeds the 2 million mark so stay tuned!!! It goes down to the wire!!!
Update July 13: 5,000 PV to go.....
Oh my God, how exciting!!!
Only 5,000 views left. Don't leave a screen anymore now.
If you join and catch the magic number make sure that you make a screencap, upoload it to your Sta.sh and post the link to my DA notes. Good luck!!!
Update July 14: 3,000 PV to go.....Can't take very much longer anymore now.
I want to invite you to party with me and catch my 2,000,000th pageview. The first one who sends me a screenshot of my profile page showing this number wins 250 points. I know it's still almost 100K away but my pageviews seem to run quickly lately. Funny how things change. Look at my pageview statistic:
- 10,000 PV after 16 months on DA (04/2006)
- 50,000 PV one year later (04/2007)
- 100,000 PV seven months after that (11/2007)
- 200,000 PV another seven months later (06/2008)
- 500,000 PV only nine months hereafter (03/2009)
- 750,000 PV just over one year later (04/2010)
- 1,111,111 PV one year after that (04/2011)
I wish you good luck with this little game that I haven't done in ages!
Since then I stopped counting. I have this strange feeling it won't need 7 months for the last 100K views as it did in 2007. So the first million of views within 6 ½ years on DeviantART and the second million in the following 4 years. Nice.
Congratulations to me - now it's 10 years ago that I joined DeviantArt. That is a long time. I was a newbie when I started here and I have learned so much since then!!! I wouldn't be were I am if it hadn't been for DA and all the friends and fellow artists over all the years. A lot of things happened, many things have changed. You might be interested to read some of my first journal entries in 2005 and 2006:
My first DD: Daily Deviation!!!
Release of Apophysis 2.04: New Apophysis - RELEASED!!!
Reach of 10,000 pageviews: 10.000 pageviews!
community campaign: Petition for respectful cooperation...
DA people collage: New Edition of DeviantART People
It's insane how I improved as an artist (and human being of course). If you like I'll take you on a little tour through years of my creations. (Scroll down) I started with fractals, fractal collages, photography and photmanipulations.
To name just a few:
Sorry for not being on DA lately. It's all a bit too much at the moment. Thank you for your continuing support!
normally I don't come out if something is wrong. I am that kind of person who deals with their problems on their own. But this time I really need help otherwise I will not make it. So that's why I am reaching out to you.
Since a few years I live and work in a house together with a few other people in a living community. Now the landlord wants to get rid of us and filed a lawsuit. It's not that we have done anything wrong, we always paid the rent and kept the house in order. Maybe just not the way the owner has imagined? Now found a flaw in the lease contract and uses it in court. He claims that he hasn't given permission to sublease the rooms and unfortunately the lease contract doesn't say otherwise. But sublease was the base of the agreement and the common practice from the beginning: I am the main tenant and all other housemates are subtenants. Why would I rent a big house with 8 rooms for me alone? But the law says I need a written permission and the landlord never handed one over. Though there is proof enough that the owner agreed on sublease I lost the lawsuit in the first instance. If I don't appeal to the next higher authority I am about to lose my home, my workplace (my office is at home), my whole existence in the next weeks and I have to pay all cost for the lawsuit and the involved lawyers because I am the only person in charge.
