Update and Current WorksWell, it has been quite a while since I've updated this thing...So, it is time to get the old journal out of site haha.
Currently, I am working on quite a few projects, including prepping works form this year for digital / framed display. Also, I will be surprising my Marine husband with a new desktop background for our 1st anniversary...He has been asking for a new one for quite some time, as he has been using a piece I made him 5 years ago . Anyway, I will have that piece posted soon as well as many others.
My largest project I have underway is finishing my animation from last year!! I had a very unfortunate computer crash that hindered my completing the project, titled "Joust", to my fullest desire. I feel that it deserves all the time needed to make it a fantastic portfolio piece. I will also be getting a head start on my animations for next year by creating some background paintings!
On top of all this, I also have Mesa County Fair to prepare for, and I have a couple of pieces l
Gifted a Premium Membership!!Upon checking my messages today, I discovered that I have been gifted a Premium Membership by an Anonymous Deviant! To whomever was generous enough to gift me my premium membership, THANK YOU!! I greatly appreciate it, and will use this gift to the fullest!!
I would have expressed my gratitude earlier, but I have been busy having my Marine husband home for a visit! He just ended his deployment in Afghanistan

New Art, New Animation!Greetings, my loyal +Watchers!!
The weather's getting colder, and that means I will be spending more time indoors! It is also a prime opportunity for me to launch into this year's final animation!! This year, I will be animating jousting horses in Adobe Flash. I will post my storyboard soon.
Also, I have started a new piece! "Smaug the Golden", a tribute to the mighty dragon of J.R.R Tolkien, will be a digital painting created in Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter 12. For those of you interested in my process, I am posting step-by-step photos to my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/M.BrookeS.Art . I have a couple pics of him posted already, so feel free to stop by! "Like"s are also appreciated .
Thanks for reading!
My Dinosaurs displayed at Museum!It has been a while since I updated this thing...It has been a busy summer!!
I have some exciting news!! While on exhibition at Mesa County Fair, my piece "Colorado: Late Jurassic" ( http://fav.me/d57iuxa ) caught the attention of some very important individuals! Two of which are well-known paleontologists, and the other a museum board member / owner of a large local business (Whitewater Building Materials). To make a long story short, they were all so impressed with my work and talent that they all asked for my contact information to ask if I would be interested in displaying my art the prestigious Dinosaur Journey Museum!! Three pieces of my work are now on display, including "Colorado: Late Jurassic", "Feathered Deinonychus" (my latest piece created just for the event http://fav.me/d5auhc4 ), and "Triceratops" (I'll have it up on dA soon). They will remain on display until July 2013, and for anyone interested, Dinosaur Journey is located at 550 Jurassic Court, Fruita CO. It is an ho
Animation is Complete!!Well, my traditional animation "Snap!" is done....for now, anyway. It's now up and ready for the world to see!
I plan on returning to it, sometime this summer. Have it fully painted, add some more frames to a few shots, better scans and editing, etc.
Until that time, enjoy! I'm gonna go get some much needed R&R
Thanks for +Watching! <3
OK, fine! I'll write one...I suppose that it is about time I write a journal entry...I am pleased with the progress I've made in the short time I've been on DA. I really need to start uploading better work, though, so look forward to that! Currently, I'm busy working on my final for my Intro to Animation class: A 30 sec-1 min hand-drawn animation! It's coming along splendidly, but my frames still need to be inked, and all of them painted with watercolors. It's going to be a busy weekend for me, but it'll be worth it in the end .
Also, I want to thank my loyal +Watchers! I cannot express how much your support means to me <3 !
As an end note, I've come across a handy group here on DA, that helps get members watchers, favorites, and page views in general...I've had great success with it, and if anyone is interested, here's the http://she1badelf.getwatchers.com/?refby=91003
The DERE TypesExplained Tsuki Style.
These are all the dere's I know
If there are more, please tell me and I'll add on :3
Bakaderederived from baka, idiot and dere, lovey dovey
- A bakadere as the name implies is a stupid idiot in love, clumsy with the way they're in love, but super in love :3
Bodere: They lash out when embarrassed, and prefer fists over words.
Byoukidere: Usually very sweet and kind, but suffer from some disease (usually a fatal one.) They are often frail and weak in nature.
Dandere derived from silent, is simply a silent type
- Dandere is someone who doesn't talk, is shy and antisocial until the right person comes along, at that point they will talk and become more confidant.
- Daruderes are those who are nonchalant to those who they love, but they do express emotions, just usually show no interest in those who like them
Icon Contest [closed]
Hi. I'm running another contest.
I really need a new icon, an icon that I can probably use for a long time (for my YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuMhcz39FjIPeHgOEyChvcg?disable_polymer=true)
so!! why not hold a contest
-USE HIS NORMAL FORM, ignore the monster and past
-No pixel icons, it will ruin the quality on YouTube.
-You CAN animate it, but make sure that the first frame is the main frame, because most people won't be able to see the animation unless they see a notification of me pop up.
-You can do anything with it! Background can be anything, any color, I don't really mind.
-You can shade it, leave it flat, etc.
-Any form of art is allowed! Cell shaded, realistic, paper, lineless, ANYTHING!
-I'd prefer head shots (shoulder to head), but if you want to squeeze in something else, feel free!
-He can wear anything!!
-I don't really have a preference of how it should look. I'm happy with anything :>
