Still alive and Gargoyles 20th anniversaryHi everyone!
So I'm around DA again at the moment. I'm really very happy to see that some of the old "faces" are still around and still watch my gallery despite of the lack of updates. Thank you so much! This means VERY MUCH to me!!
As many people visit my gallery because of my "Gargoyles" art, I'd like to ask the following:
The TV-show has it's 20th anniversary soon. Do you plan on doing something for the occasion (like drawing a picture or having a party or attending the Gathering at Convergence, ...)? I'm curious!
End of the world today...... and I seem to live in an odd part of the world as nothing much has happened here, yet XD
Art memeHi everyone!
I found this meme on the net and I thought it could be interesting to some of you, so i filled it out.
1. when drawing, what program(s) do you use? why?
- Photoshop and sometimes Sketchbook Pro (for digital sketching). Illustrator for T-shirt designs. After trying some different programs, I know that these work best for me. I'd like to try Sai, too, but it doesn't seem to work on Mac, yet.
2. brush size, what kind (watercolor, pen, ect), and canvas size?
- Canvas size: usually between 1500 px and 3000 px per side, later resized to about 1000 to 1500 px.
- Brush: 3 to 9 hard round brush for sketching and lineart, different soft or hard brushes for coloring
3. when you do start sketching, and after doing the circles and lines ect, what do you start with first? (ex. hair, head, eyes)
- Eyes. They give the picture a soul
4. are your sketches detailed and nice-looking, or are they rushed and sloppy so you can begin inking already?
- First they are
A belated happy 2012 and other stuffHi everyone!
I know I'm wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy late ... but well (I really need to work on my timing!!!!) ... I wish everyone a nice year 2012 with lots of luck, good health and fun and without any kinds of world's ends
Some stuff is/will be going on for me this year:
- :iconchireiya: coming back from Japan!!!!! Can't wait to see her again!!!!
- getting married in Scotland (?)
- going to the zoo with :iconRainFreckles: and Oliver Strohhalm often (I hope)
- looking for a new job
- improving my drawing skills (I made 12(!) conbadges within 6 hours at a party at New Years Eve ... and I liked it )
- learning to play bass guitar
- attending a dog sledding course
- and probably some other things I don't remember right now (any suggestions?)
And what I'd also like to say: I found out that Randeer/Caribou are awsome and most impressive beings (I never had a thing for deer of any kind before)! They walk hundreds of miles being pregnant and even cross rivers and mountains!!
Next level art theftHehe, my art-stealing "fans" took it to the next level: My art has been stolen for the purpose of making money with it!
I feel kind of flattered o.o
Well, that being said, it's time to do something about it...
Can you recommend a good anime?Second journal entry in one day ... something has to be wrong with me XD
Anyway, as the title says: I'm looking for a good anime or animated TV show I can enjoy when I want to relax.
I already watched and enjoyed very much:
Pokemon season 1 to 5
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
I also watched and liked
Mahou Shojo Madoka Magika
Though as these are pretty serious shows, they are not as relaxing as the ones mentioned first.
From what I liked so far, is there anything you can recommend me to watch next? I'd be very happy about suggestions!
Kudos MLP FansSo yesterday the new MLP FIM episode finally aired (which was awesome btw) and to my surprise fanarts of the episode popped up all over DA almost instantly. I gotta say I'm impressed. Kudos Bronies!
Mahou Shoujo Madoka MagicaJust finished watching the anime series today. I have to say it totally blew me away! Great character design both appearance and background story, awesome animation and music and a really deep and interesting storyline! Definitely not what I imagined, when I first heard of the show. Best "magical girl" anime I've ever seen!!

5000 hours completed!! And July Commissions!Celebrating the 5000 hours doing logos!
They say you need 10,000 hours to master something. Well, I'm half a master then. After 5 years, 8 months, 5 days, and more than 600 logos, I finally reached half way of my goal. I still have a long way to go but hopefully, before I'm 40, I will be a true master of what I love to do.
Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project abandoned.
My commissions are always open, I just a
Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
