#via-dolorosa.So i'll be honest, as much as i liked the idea for my journal layout, i didn't really like the purple background.
yay for blue? >
#selenidedeviantart won't let me post stuff on people's profile pages or reply to comments because "the system thinks it's spam"
#cul-de-saci don't know if anybody still reads my journals but i felt the need to update it due to how dead my page looks.
so i'm getting back to deviantart, i cleared out a lot of my messages, replied to all the comments but i wasn't able to thank people for faves/watches on their pages, so if you've faved my work or watched me and you're reading this: THANK YOU! i'm still not done looking at all the deviations but i'm working on it
soo..since the last time i updated my journal:
i turned 17.i graduated high school with an okay average [yay survived it].i applied for med school but i still don't know if i'm accepted.i went to malaysia for a week in the beginning of the summer [& it's as beautiful as i remember it, took lots of pictures ].
these are the seemingly eventful things that happened in my life, not the most important to me but yeah.
i shall now share some pictures from my trip :3
Day 1. it was raining when we arrived, the weather was just lovely.
okay, i should really stop doing this. the whole disappearing thing.
and omg, i didn't know the new journal page looked like this, i'm missing out on a lot x.x
okay so here's what this journal is about.
i'm a part of YEC this year (UAE natives, you probably know what this is). it's a young entrepreneur competition where teenagers sell shit. we're selling accessories and t-shirts. i'll post some pictures of the accessories and the t-shirt designs later, and this is one of the ads we made.
if you're living in the UAE, visit us at the Dubai Mall (from 29th of March to the 2nd of April)! :]
and tell people! XD

#amusement.i'm graduating in four months, and school is making me insane *sigh* such a screwed up school.
i miss art.. and inspiration.
and i miss deviantart and my watchers.
i have 18,827 messages (deviations, comments, faves) x.x
i'm sorry for teh unspoken hiatus.
look at teh purdy stuff i found!
#wreckage.still here, just in case anyone's wondering o:
i'm not going to say i barely update because of school. i have been busy with school but that's not why i don't update.
i miss taking pictures because i want to so i did that in the past (uneventful) weekend and just uploaded something.
bearwtihme - it'll take me a while to learn to retouch pictures properly again; it's been ages since i've actually taken my time experimenting.
other than that, i figured out my little sister is a great model. she helped me make posters for clubs we're starting in school, i was actually proud of them when i was done. also, i know this might make me sound stuck up, but i like seeing my work in school (:
that's all for now, i won't bore you with more o:
how is everybody? (:

“Some use Ink, I confide in Silver”
— Lauren E. Simonutti
Quote by Lauren E. Simonutti
“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. A creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends, I am aware enough to know the things I see and hear are not real, but that does not mean I do not still see and hear them.”
For a very long time
Marketing Materials For ArtistsEDIT: Well butter my biscuits, some of my gifs disappeared into the interwebs. I'll remedy this soon!
It’s no secret that us artists aren’t great at selling ourselves. The creative process is so much work it’s easy to assume that your work will be able to sell itself. Sometimes it can, but that’s not usually the case. Even if you aren’t interested in going commercial with your career (and there is absolutely nothing wrong with going that route), it is important have professional materials to present to clients, employers and galleries. If you aren’t interested in being “full time” with selling your artwork, I think it would still be good to consider putting together marketing materials as a means of creating good client relations.
This journal will include a number of things you may need in marketing yourself, but also if you are applying to art schools or for various jobs in art. I would also like to note that you d

Watercolor TechniquesWatercolor Techniques I
Traditional Art Week at projecteducate continues! During Artist's Toolbox weeks, I've published articles dedicated to watercolor tools (Watercolor Equipment I - Basic Tools, Watercolor Equipment II - Additional Tools). You should go grab your tools now, because the next series of articles will be focusing on painting methods. I sincerely hope these will help you and wish you all happy painting!
Laying a wash
A wash is a large area in a watercolor painting where the paint flow and diffusion have been manipulated to efface individual brushstrokes. Within wash areas, color transitions are usually gradual and span analogous hues. Laying a wash is one of the most satisfying tasks in watercolor painting. Essentials of this s
Did you know? - Suggesting DDsDD is short for Daily Deviation and is - like the name lets you presume - a daily feature of artworks from different the galleries.
DDs can be featured by Community Volunteers and Staff members.
While browsing it can happen that you come across deviations that you think should be featured as a DD, but how?
First of all you need to take a look at the gallery it was submitted to.
You can find this information in the description area, directly below the artwork itself.
With that category in mind, we are now heading over to communityrelations to take a look at this CV overview. It lists all volunteers and the gallery they take care of.
Beside the overview at communityrelations you can also find the same list at :faq18:
For our example we now need to search for the Photography CVs.
As you can see there are plenty of t

Don't forget, whilst techniques has their own regulations and principles, they still can be combined, you have to be no wizard (just a little creative) to find a new way to express yourself through them.

Un roti de Cupidon"Patron.. je suis pas sûr que ça soit une si bonne idée..."
Un bruissement d'ailes presque froufroutant sur sa gauche le fit se retourner d'un bond, mais il ne put percevoir qu'un bref mouvement du coin de l'oeil. Ils étaient rapides, bien trop rapides. Jamais le vieux ne réussirait. De nouveau ce bruit soyeux, semblable à des ailes de tourterelles, mais bien plus proche. Dans son esprit il pouvait les voir, tournant au dessus de sa tête comme autant de vautours prêts à la curée.
Le bruit assourdi des détonations résonna et tout autour d'Emmanuel une pluie de plumes commença à virevolter tandis que cinq bruits sourds accompagnaient la chute d'autant de corps autour de lui.
"Ramasse les, petit. On a encore du boulot."
Avec une grimace mi admirative, mi dégoûtée, le jeune homme se mit au travail, enfilant des lourds gants de cuir pour se protéger. Son sup

Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is.
