Favy Feature

Favy Feature

Hey there! nackmu wrote a journal about this so I will do the same: The first 15 people to comment on this journal, I will feature their avatar* and the three deviations I like the most from their gallery in here! ^^ If you comment, you have to make a journal like this and do the same thing, putting me in the first spot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread  art around for everyone! If you don't re-do it you will be taken off the list. *I'm apparently too stupid to feature avatars, or do I need a Core membership for that? How does it work? Feel free to comment :) Let's spread some art! Sillageuse Featured arti

Commission Info

Commission Info

Hi there! I'm open for commissions! I'm open for a lot of different mediums and motifs, but I guess most of my commissions will be portrait-like drawings, so here's more detailed info for basic portraits. But please don't hesitate to message me if you want to ask anything (do you also draw X?), we can discuss every idea you have for a commission: Sillageuse@gmail.com Animal portrait (1 animal), Din A4, coloured pencils, simple or no background: 150,- EUR. Examples: Dark animals or animals with large dark parts (like dark brown, dark grey or black) will cost extra, because dark colours take more time. Example: If you prefer a portrait

dA Statistics and weird things about them

dA Statistics and weird things about them

So this is a screenshot of a dA account's statistics. Said dA account is - judging from the one deviation - obviously a bot advertising a photoshop tool or something like that (which might even be some kind of malware or whatever). What I learned from one glance at the stats: This bot is randomly faving erverything (including my latest artwork). There is no artwork in the deviations (just a demonstration of said tool), and yet they get 844 watchers, while only watching 5. What does that mean? When you fave 100 deviations, one deviant will watch you in return (without even checking the gallery I guess). This bot has been a deviant for 1 month

Hey there, I'm still injured (both my hands ;_; ), but I'm going to participate in the challenge where you draw as many chicks as you get Likes for a post, so head over to my facebook page and like my post: https://www.facebook.com/Sillageuse/posts/1605982852991998 If you want to see me suffering ;) Everyting is explained there #‎illdrawacharacterwithasmanychicksaslikesthispicgets‬

injured my hand and thoughts about copyright etc.

injured my hand and thoughts about copyright etc.

Hi there! I've injured my right hand (my thumb, as I wrote in some of my latest deviations' descriptions), so the doctor said not to use it much. So since I already use my hand in daily life, I try to avoid drawing and handwriting completely. :( So much for my daily drawing challenge! But I want to try other means of creating art, like with my fingertips only or with my left hand or digitally with the mouse or touchpad... But this won't happen on a daily basis, sorry! Also, because it came up in a journal of an artist I'm following, I started researching about legal aspects of selling artworks. I think this is really interesting because I w

Drawing Challenge!

Drawing Challenge!

Hey guys! I have started a drawing challenge today! I want to draw at least one drawing per day for at least a year. :) I will probably draw these on A6 paper, trying out new techniques and challenging motifs. I might also sell the drawings or put them in a raffle. If you're interested in buying drawings or commissioning me, I'd be happy to receive a message from you! <3 I hope I can keep up with that output! o.O But it wouldn't be a challenge if it were easy ;) Tomorrow is a holiday in Germany, yay! The weather is actually really nice and it doesn't affect my nose and eyes so much yet (allergies...), so I might draw #002 outside. :)

Celebrating 100 fans on facebook!

Celebrating 100 fans on facebook!

Hey guys, good news! I have over 100 fans on my facebook page now :) I'm so happy!!   I celebrated by asking my 100th fan for suggestions what to draw next, and he said a raccoon, so I drew a raccoon :) They are so cute, it was really hard choosing a reference :D Check out my facebook page to see the drawing! :)  (Edit: Now I uploaded it to dA too!) By the way, this is not the first time I uploaded something to my facebook that I didn't show on dA, so if you don't want to miss anything, Like me on facebook (please  ) Bisous to all of you!  

Over the moon :)

Over the moon :)

My facebook Page has achieved a reach of over 400 and it has 90 Likes, yeah! I didn't think anything like that would be possible in such a short time, and I know it's not much compared to other artists, but for me this is huge!   90 Likes on facebook and 9 watchers on dA! Should I draw something special for when (if?) I hit the 100 on fb or the 10 on dA? Those are milestones I hope to achieve before April!   I'd love for you to help me by sharing my pages!  

Origami

Origami

I got into Origami again :) I know how to fold a paper crane in my sleep, but now I'm into the Kawasaki rose, which took me about an hour each at first, and they tore a lot, but now I got quicker and better and they don't tear anymore. :) I'm trying different sizes now. My smallest paper crane I ever did was made from about 1,5 cm x 1,5 cm paper, I think. My smallest rose was made from about 10cm x 10cm and it's in this picture. I started making the roses for a stage play my friends are doing. If you are anywhere close Düsseldorf, Germany, check it out! It's based on the film noir genre and they will show it again in March.

Christmas Preparations

Christmas Preparations

Hi everyone, I'm currently drawing a lot, but shhhh, I can't upload any of those drawings because they might end up under a Christmas tree... ;) What are you preparing for the holidays art-wise?   Have a nice Sunday evening :) Sillageuse Update: Meh, I didn't finish in time, because I got sick the week before Christmas ;_; This one is the only drawing I finished in time, and it was pretty small. :/ I did manage to make a lot of painted dishware though, I'll upload photos soon. Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm back!

I'm back!

Well, I'm still not uploading much, but at least I'm back to drawing at an almost regular basis. I bought some decent drawing paper, because until now I only used sketchbooks in A5 or regular paper intended for copying... I'm practicing drawing, but I don't finish much lately. I had two drawings that kind of blocked me because I made some mistakes that I felt I couldn't fix, but I lay those aside for the moment. At least now I have some ideas on how to fix those mistakes, I just need to get myself to actually try and do it. I guess I should read doodlealley.com more often, those comics are really encouraging. :)
My twin babies will arrive soon, so I'm sorry if my response time might take a while! :O For urgent inquiries, please send an e-mail to Sillageuse@gmail.com (it might still take a while to reply, but probably quicker than here on dA) <3 Exciting time...
Hey there! If you're from the US, you can send me a tip via https://digitaltipjar.com/sillageuse ! Isn't that cool? I hope they'll add more countries to the service :) I'd be happy about any amount!     
Dear Watchers! It would be so hyper nice of you to vote for my drawings (or any drawings you like) in this contest:  Mine are A6 and A7 :) <3 Spread the word to help me, please! <3
I'm going to sell some artworks at a little festival in Dortmund (Germany), come by and say hello, if you're in the area! :) https://www.facebook.com/events/1657084634611991/
Here's a longer update about my hand injuries, if you were wondering what I'm doing all this time... ^^ https://www.facebook.com/Sillageuse/posts/1752677231655892
I haven't been online on dA in a while, sorry for that! Later I'll hopefully get to uploading a bunch of artworks that I did in the meanwhile :)
I'm on ello now! https://ello.co/sillageuse Do you have an ello account? :)
I just bought a ticket for the Comic Con in Dortmund (Germany) this Sunday. Will any of you guys be there? :)
I can't believe I'm sick again ;_; I just got over my last cold and bam there's the next one. My nose is running and my eyes are teary and I'm incredibly bored (and whiny, as you can see XD).
today's daily drawing was a sketch during occupational therapy :) Check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/Sillageuse/photos/a.1644668672456749.1073741839.1546201548970129/1652916071632009/?type=3
These days I'm updating my fish drawing very frequently. Would you rather see all the WIPs instead of me changing the main file all the time? Is it spammy? ^^ The WIPs are still in my gallery on my fb page, if you're interested :)
So now I'm doing a raffle myself! Check it out here and tell me if you need a translation of the rules! :) https://www.facebook.com/Sillageuse/photos/a.1591027101154240.1073741838.1546201548970129/1645975788992704/?type=3
