As you may have noticed, I haven't been very productive lately with the last gallery submission being from October. Many many things have changed since then. I've moved in September and now it's March and I'm sitting in my room at 2 big tables and have enough space for everything. Got a new DIY furniture which was a lot of work to put together but hey... I can do it! Everything seems perfect.
the fast lifestyle and stress of the new millenium has given me some pesky health issues I've been fighting lately. Even though the panic strokes (even 2-3 per day, insane) I've been suffering from are not serious condition (really,
And I hate to solve tiny problems. But this one really got on my nerves.
I mean, how can someone who wraps his original characters in a blanket made of Creative Commons license ignore CC in other artists' works? This guy has been a bit of pain, using one of my images, ACEO Scheriff as his online identity image. I wouldn't mind, it was apparently popular thanks to the DD, I painted it as a personal piece for a friend so naturally I wanted to have it removed. There was no point in talking to the guy. No matter how nice I was and trying to be helpful (I offered to help find an artist to paint him another artwork), he refused to remove
I've seen a few artist filling the questionnaire which I haven't noticed before!
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been here since 2004 but back then I had a different account, http://yaguara.deviantart.com/. Stupid me, if I had waited for some time I could have it renamed instead of deleting it. :(
What does your username mean?
My nickname is Olven so "theOlven" is just a small detour as "Olven" has been already taken by a member who even doesn't update anymore. My nickname has been born back in 2003 and it's based on an elvish character me and my friends have created in D&Ds.
Describe yourself in three words.
I've been getting tons of new watches recently from new members here on Deviantart. And thank you for that! <3
My question is: how did you find me here? Did you see someone's feature on their journal or did you see my artwork somewhere else?
The fact#1: THE TROPICAL WEATHER
We've had extreme tropical weather here for the last few weeks and I'm literally dying from the temperature which doesn't get much lower under 30 degrees celcius (in sun it's even worse). Can't draw! Asd3$^d2#!!! Sweaty hands! =C
The fact#2: YES, I'M GETTING MARRIED
Some of you know about it already, some don't. I've been engaged for over a year
My camel painting got a Daily Deviation.
I feel so thankful and honored!
I'm so happy... I'm going to need a coffe. :D
And since I love what DeviantArt has done to the Journal system, here are some steps from the painting process. I used Winsor & Newton Desert Collection limited edition watercolors for this one. I love the paints even more now, they have such delicate warm tones.
I'm currently quite busy, focused on my wedding But I'm deffinitely working on more paintings and stuff. Like today... when our content management system had some lazy moment, I had an inspiring one (below)! I :heart: love this game...
Oh did I mention got
