13 years in Deviant Art

It was magical moments where I learned, taught, smiled, cried, met wonderful people and others not so much, but it was not worth knowing everyone at all.

I will follow my path and would like to leave my vows of love, light and peace for this Christmas and the New Year that soon begins.

My works that were for sale I wanted to leave bonus for you but honestly do not know how to do this and therefore I put only a few points in return.

I'm still on Facebook but I do not do any more art. Until the time I feel like doing it again.

Peace and love to everybody! :peace: :love:

I got a Daily Deviation!!!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 3, 2014, 3:09 AM

After long 6 years, I got my second Daily Deviation!!! :excited:

Proud to receive a Deviousness Award!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 10, 2012, 10:16 AM

Since I receive the Senior stache, I couldn't imagine to receive a Deviousness Award in the month of my 50's Birthday! :faint: I have no words to express my feelings and I need some time to put my messages right (at this moment, I have more than 2500 messages and 13 notes (excluding the groups and friends that I allways disable when I make a trip). So please be patiente with me... :giggle:

I had wonderful moments in Paris - Most people knows me also know that I am Spiritualist and believe in reincarnation. So take this occasion of celebration of my 50 years in Paris, my husband I (Twin Soul - Love Forever) :iconennes: did a "celebration" and we exchanged our rings, and put our lock on the bridge of Love.

Here you can see my Deviousness Award…:

And this was my "Spiritual Wedding" - sorry but this is only in Portuguese :smooch:

Thank you so much!!!! See you! :blowkiss:

Merry Christmas

My best wishes to all of you - sparkling your dreams and receiving a lot of peace! :blowkiss:

EDIT: I can't believe that I got the Seniority after 7 years here in DA! I'm really happy and feeling important! :giggle:

This is really a Christmas' gift for me - I had a bad time in my life and now I can feel much better - I would like to help everybody that I can! :giggle:

Here you can see the journal :D

I'll be 50 yo in February. I'm back to the English course and probably I will help more! :excited:

Thanks to everybody that had fingercrossed for me - I'm really honored! :blowkiss:


I really would like to understand why most of people here in DA love to see dark or nude - when I was searching for arts with Christmas title, I found thousand of them with thousand of favs - Christmas is a special date - the Jesus' birthday. I can't accept nothing disrespect or something like this to rememeber how important this date is.

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura - so sad...

My mom is very sick... :tears: She´s with Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura - is the condition of having a low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) of no known cause (idiopathic). As most causes appear to be related to antibodies against platelets, it is also known as immune thrombocytopenic purpura. Although most cases are asymptomatic, very low platelet counts can lead to a bleeding diathesis and purpura. More here…

Yesterday they put them in a artificial respirator but she has a lot of chances to have blood in her lung... :sniff:

I´m really sad, crying and praying a lot and asking God to make what He thinks is the better to her and no for me... :pray:

Please put my mom in your prayers - Laysi de Souza Campos.

Hugs and thanks to eveybody


Minha mãezinha está muito doente... :tears: Ela está com Púrpura trombocitopênica idiopática - é uma doença sangüínea adquirida, que pode ou não ser congênita, que se deve à trombocitopenia, que é a diminuição do número das plaquetas no sangue. Como a maioria dos casos parecem estar relacionados ao aparecimento de anticorpos contra as plaquetas, ela também é conhecida como púrpura trombocitopênica imunológica.

Embora muitos casos sejam assintomáticos, a baixa contagem de plaquetas pode causar o surgimento de púrpura, que é uma manifestação que envolve o aparecimento de petéquias, hematomas e outras manifestações hemorrágicas.
Veja mais aqui…

Ontem eles a colocaram em um respirador artificial mas há uma grande chance de ela vir a ter uma hemorragia interna... :sniff:

Estou sofrendo muito, chorando e rezando bastante e pedindo a Deus que Ele faça o que for melhor para ela e não para mim... :pray:

Gostaria de pedir a todos que pusessem o nome dela em suas orações: Laysi de Souza Campos.

Beijos e obrigada

I lost my baby... :(

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 22, 2006, 8:42 AM

Toy - my baby that live with me for almost 13 years... :(
My baby was not with me anymore - he´s with God... he had cancer and today he died in a surgery... :sniff:

I made this image some time ago and I dedicate to him with all my love... :tears:

The Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I´m in a very delicate moment - a lot of bad things in my life... Hope I can be better soon... :tears:

My Art

I´m avaliable for comission in digital art - you can make a lot of arts for yourself or for your friends. CD covers, magazines covers, etc :buymyprints:

I just work with models/photographers that send me release.
Why? A: Because I use a lot of works in exhibitions and the most stocks in DA have restrictions to use for commercial purpose. I have some plans like to make a book with some of my images and etc. That´s it... :)
I allways send the high quality image for my models and I also give donations when it´s possible and I´m not broke.

You can download the release here…
