...has never seen a single snake charmer in her life.


deviant ID_2 by perzarus

Just call me Rita or my username.

All you'll ever need to know about me....

Autodidact.

Computer Scientist and Artist. Dabbler of various things.
My interests are broad and many, like the changes of the seasons.
Currently focusing on: Generative Art and Creative Coding, Calligraphy, Space Art


I've played around with Photoshop when I was much younger though, way back in high school. (Ah, those days of artistic discovery)
Digital art is like more of a hobby to me. Photoshop versions used: PS7, CS2 and now CS6.
Pencil shading and dry pastels on paper are my most preferred media when it comes to traditional art. I'm always open to learning new art styles and other techniques...if I only had the time!

I've been lurking around DA since 2006 until I finally decided to make an account in 2014, I wasn't really active until 2015. I have watched this place grow into what it is today. The reason I learned PS was because of all the resources and tutorials that I found here. DA was instrumental in bringing out my creative side. :dalove:

Photography is also something I love. To capture nature in all its beauty and to have a moment frozen in time! :heart:

Interests & Random Stuff



Music is my BIGGEST inspiration. It's also something I'm quite passionate about. You'll find me air-drumming to my favourite songs all the time.
Favourite bands: Karnivool <3 , SubRosa, TesseracT, Rishloo, Katatonia, Cult Of Luna, Tool, God Is An Astronaut, Opeth, Skyharbor, Animals As Leaders, Sigur Ros, Ludovico Einaudi, Uneven Structure, Ne Obliviscaris, Monuments, Nine Inch Nails, Kylesa, Isis, Rosetta, How To Destroy Angels, Ulver, and many more.

Science Fiction and Futurism comes in a close second. I'm also inspired by the mysteries of this journey called life.

Other Stuff


Technology, Food (experimenting in the kitchen), Coffee, Closet Songwriter, Concerts, Learning something new everyday, Languages, Socio-economic issues, Mythology, Philosophy, Metaphysics and other random things.


You will see a bit of everything on my profile. I love experimenting with new & different mediums of artistic expression, trying out new things all the time to satisfy my inner hunger for something I've never done or experienced before. It is the fiber of who I am. If I had to make an individual DA account for everything I want to try, I'd be banned! So you will find all my work in this one tiny space on the internet. Feel free to drop by and have a chat, I promise I don't bite.

I also take stock photos. Please note that NOT all my photos are stock. Only the photos in the Stock and Resources folder are stock.
Please read the STOCK AND RESOURCES RULES rules before using my stock.


All my photography, photomanipulation & traditional media artworks are my own work. You may not use, edit, upload, redistribute, publish or claim as your own in any way. That's called stealing, and stealing is a crime.

Info: All my non-digital/traditional artworks are photos, taken with a point & shoot camera as I don't have a scanner. Sometimes the picture quality is compromised due to the lighting and angle of the photo, which may result in colours appearing slightly different from the original.

Icon is from artwork I made when I was 14. Profile background images from Unsplash.

All Mediums Contest: Halloween Mashup!Halloween Contest!
Dear members,
I am very excited to announce yet another contest here at projecteducate intended for all artistic mediums! I am especially excited since this one is in honour of Halloween which is fast approaching! Keep reading to find out more about the contest prompt and prizes! :)
The Prompt:
"Halloween Mashup" - What does this mean?
Time to think about a minimum of 2 (no maximum) horror related or just generally "spooky" films, books, short stories, TV series, documentaries, songs, etc and merge them together into one final piece of art! 
We want to see two or more different spooky worlds be combined together in a creative and unique manner, with your own style and vision applied to them! This means feel free to re-imagine the appearance of characters, objects, symbols or whichever other imagery you decide to use to represent the horror media you'll be combining together. Don't restrict yourself around the term "hor
The Last Photograph | a horror contest
Mrs-Durden and I would like to invite you to take part in a horror photography contest with a difference - the goal isn't to take the 'best' photo. The goal is to totally creep us out!
Instead of giving you a theme or a topic, we're giving you a story. The end of the story is the photo you take and submit to the contest.
We encourage you to dig around in the darkest depths of your imagination. If you're awesome at costume creating, monster making and effects make-up, that's great. If you're a super experienced horror photographer, that's great too. BUT...if you're none of those things, that's also great and you have just as much chance of winning!
Also, don't worry if you don't have a fancy camera, because shooting your contest entry on your phone will add to the authenticity of your photo and may work in your favour!
So, without further ado, here's how to take part.

More prizes for Halloween Challenge-SCARE US!Yay! We've added more exclusives and points to the stash. Check it out, and join the fun!

Greetings Castle Folk...
Yes, it's that time of the year again. We love becoming something other than what we are on October 31st and November 1st, don't we? Many of us choose a dark look perhaps to give vent to those things we normally repress or keep hidden. This challenge is about scaring ourselves and others. With all the great stock images on DA you should have no problem working out your image. Consider too, that what is frightening isn't always an obvious choice. Subltey is often far spookier. Just remember to include in your description what you're are showing us.  ALSO, you get to submit your work to BOTH groups as both Castles are hosting this game. How cool is that?! Let's get to the details: :thumbsup:
:bulletred: You must include a model or an animal.

Animal Spirit Guide Contest, 2 weeks left!The Animal Spirit Guide contest!!! It is running now, October 15 to November 30, 2018.
This must be a new work, created for this contest, so if you have one in the works that your unbridled muse is flying with, wait to submit it until the contest starts.  Make sure you are a member of this :iconcrphotomanipulation: group, head into the gallery and look for the advanced, intermediate or beginner folders and enter your wonderful works there. :love:
Requirement: This challenge is about the relationship between a person and their spirit guide and how that relationship is expressed is a very important part of this challenge. Just putting two beings together doesn't qualify and it must show a/the person with their personal animal spirit guide in a relationship with each other the best way you can and how you feel inspired to.
I realize that many may already know, while others have no idea what an Animal Spirit Guide is. Unfortunately I am only

PLEASE IGNORE ANY JOURNAL NOTIFICATIONS!!
I was resetting the privacy for my journals, had no idea that DA would resend the notifications. My apologies! 

I'm cleaning up my account + profile and changing a few things around. :)
I apologize for the lack of activity, I haven't been myself lately. A lot of stuff is happening IRL right now. Just trying to keep afloat. =P (Razz)

Also, that must be a record number of notifications. Stare  My average is about 5k, when sorted and organized.
I will get to the bottom of it, eventually. :oops: OMG OMG MOAR POEMS! 
That number, though. by perzarus
I want to thank every single one of you who faved, commented, gave a llama, watched me or supported me in any way in the past two weeks. La la la la  It means a lot to me, to consistently have your support even though I may or might not have done the same.
You are wonderful people. You guys make this place awesome! CURSE YOU! 

:heart: :love: :hug:
| NOT A HIATUS |
I will not be here for the next 4-5 days. I'll be logging in once or twice a week from now on. It has become physically impossible for me to catch up with everything and maintain a study/work/life/DA balance and the stress levels are so high that I'm not even myself anymore. I'm taking some time off. I would love to get back to my usual mojo once this phase is over. :|
I will be putting some submissions on schedule, it took me a while to figure that out. The second journal was published a little earlier than intended. :oops:
Group duties will remain as usual, those responsibilities don't change though my personal activity might reduce a bit. If you comment during this phase, it will take some time before I can reply, but I will eventually get back to you. :nod:
(unless your message/comment gets lost in the notifications or gets accidentally deleted, in that case I apologize, I'm super-forgetful!)
I gotta have to-do lists for every single thing. And most importantly... :)

I want to thank everyone who has watched me, commented, faved my work, given me a llama or supported me over the past few weeks, it means a lot to me more than you ever know. :love:
Please know that I always appreciate it! You are awesome! :heart: :hug:
I've had a really bad bout of flu for the past week, sincerest apologies for my lack of activity. My second bout in 3 months. I'm still running a high fever and I was unable to do anything except crawl out of bed for basic stuff like eating or taking meds. Nothing like some hot soups to make me feel better. Noodle- Eat Me I'm craving for so many things I'm not supposed to eat right now. Like ice-cream or a good shot of caffeine into my bloodstream. Must. resist. the. urge. :bademoticon: 

I wanna say thank you to everyone who has interacted with me in some way for the past week, either by faving my work, comments or llamas. I appreciate your support very much! :heart: :love:

I will catch up with everything once I get a little better. :)
Watch out for super lame polls, new artwork and other stuff. Pixel gemstones - Amethyst

About Llamas, Faves and Comments.



Please don't thank me for the llamas. If you want to thank me, just return one back! =D



Sometimes my life gets in the way and I end up being quite busy IRL, so please forgive me if I take a while before I can get back to you. Please do not take it to heart if I do not personally thank you for faving my work, we all know that sometimes it can way too time-consuming to get through every notification. That does not mean I take it for granted. When you fave my work or give me a llama, I will look at your gallery and fave or comment on your work in return, not just as a form of gratitude but as form of supporting a fellow artist.
In extreme cases, some comments might get truly lost in my notifications, and I end up missing some of them. If that happens, I sincerely apologize for I didn't not mean to ignore you or be rude in any way. I try my best to reply every time. I will always appreciate your support.
Rest assured, I do read every single comment (unless it doesn't show up in my notification center) and I do appreciate every single positive interaction you have made with me so far. :heart:

Please don't watch me just to unwatch. That's kinda rude.
Any kind of hate, spam or promotions on my profile will be hidden. Persistent trolls will be blocked.
