I really like this image very much! It may have drawn inspiration from the glass window images we have seen in pony contexts throughout...

This is a very beautiful chalk drawing of Celestia. You got the proportions right and I very much like the posture. The raised right fr...

In which way should I publish craft projects that require more than one image to be fully covered? 

6 deviants said Publish collages summarizing several images at a time (looks a bit loaded and therefore less appealing)
5 deviants said Publish many singular images of the same project (bloats the account)
1 deviant said Publish animations of image series (doesn't allow for a detailed look at the individual images)
1 deviant said Other (please specify in the comments)

Malte279's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Welcome to my Deviantart page :)
My name is Malte, though many call me Mike since Malte turns out to be tricky to pronounce to most native English speakers.
While I got a deviantart account back in 2007 it has been only after my "joining the herd" that I became more active on here and started posting new art more regularly.
I'm somewhat versatile when it comes to art and very much enjoy trying out various forms of art (vectors, soapstone carvings, origami scenes etc.).
I'm also extremely interested in history and turned this interest into a profession by teaching history (and English) at "Volkshochschulen" (education centers for adults).
Please feel heartily invited to look around and comment on my art (constructive criticism is always very welcome and helps me to improve future projects).
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask :)
It is the third time now that I can write about being thrilled about the prospect of the upcomming GalaCon in Ludwigsburg in four weeks (July 28th / 29th), but to me this is the type of writing that doesn't seem to get old no matter what (especially with an event looked forward to for a whole year).
Same as last year I am going to hold a panel on my little pony origami art, but in addition to the panel I also got a workshop this year in which every participant can learn how to fold paper ponies and fold one of the Mane6.
I'm also going to pack chalk again so that (weather permitting) the place in front of the forum in Ludwigsburg can be improved again before the gates open, after they close or (depending on the schedule for events) in between.
Both, the origami workshop and the chalk drawing will be free, but I'm going to put up a little donations box and if anypony has any spare money I would be happy about any donations that help to keep such workshops going :)

Because the number of attendants for the origami workshop is limited you need to register for the workshop here if you are interested in taking part in the workshop.

I am very curious and hoping to meet some of my watchers whom I haven't met in real life so far at the GalaCon. Will anyone of you be there?


Slate Marble Pie
After Maud and Limestone I now engraved Marble Pie too into a piece of slate. By now I have figured out a little more how to create different shades of gray (no pun intended) on the slate by varying the direction in which I move the drill used for the engraving.
Wire Leafhelm
I made a wire sculpture of my OC Leafhelm landing.
Taking a usable picture of such a figure can pose a problem not so common with more massive figures. Thing is that on many images of this figure the wings or the legs (or both) remain partly invisible because they blend with the identically colored torso behind them. Unlike in case of solid surface figures you don't get as much of a play of light and shadow as to make the limps stand out in front of an identically colored surface.
I am going to post a collage and an animation of this figure too so you can get a better all sides view of it.
