Feature Fever - February 2015, Invisible Challenge
Allo! (Features and Life)Ello Ello! It Indeed has been quite a while since I have written in here. First, I have not been active on here lately since I was in CA for 10 days!!!! Mark (my boyfriend for those of you who don't know), surprised me with an early birthday gift (It's the 14th of this month) with tickets to CA to see my family. Not only that my brother surprised us by visiting CA at the same time! I got to meet my niece and hold her and ...... she is the cutest thing on the entire planet. We played games like charades and card games. If only my older sister and her husband could of been there. I haven't seen her in almost 5 years. I haven't been home in about two years. I certainly miss CA. It is just a place of feeling airy and calm and warm. Nothing beats it. I mean don't get me wrong I like it here in NY but... I love CA. We showed Mark Muir Beach and we went to the piers in SF. We also went to 21st Amendment which is a craft beer brewery/restaurant. Even if we didn't go to these places, I wouldn't
Quotes and philosophies:
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." - Matthew 7:1-5
"To try to understand what one is really viewing while gazing at the stars is a study in humility. Our minds incapable of grasping the enormity of the universe we are fortunate enough to experience." - tourofnature
"What is it about fire? So calm and peaceful but… inside, all power and destruction. It’s hiding something. Just like people do." - Jiccha from Tekkonkinkreet (Michael Arias, 2006)
"Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit." - Proverbs 26:4-5
"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before." - Edgar Allan Poe
"Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world." - Edward Hopper
"Do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away." - James 4:14
"The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude." - Aldous Huxley
"He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly." Proverbs 15:29
"For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow." - Ecclesiastes 1:18
"Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humility." - Proverbs 18:2
"Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." - Proverbs 27:17
"If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you." - John 15:18
"And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all." - Mark 10:44
"A fool flatters himself, a wise man flatters the fool." - Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
I am influenced by:
Film noir, Art Deco, Brutalist Architecture, geometric forms, symmetry, Romanticism, Semi-realism, German Expressionism, Expressionism and Retro-futurism.
I have just come back from a job interview; I hope I get the job position. I have also been photographing a football team every Saturday for the past 5 weeks and I have interest from an Estate Agent who wants me to photograph per property for a minimum of £150 (before tax).
I am mostly happy with my style. Sure, my style is going to improve over the years, but I am not going to force it. I wish I could be more flexible in what I can draw and that my art more in-depth, emotionally wise. I want my art to show what I see and feel in my day-to-day life.
What was your first favourite?
I have removed it, as it was no longer one of my favourites. The first piece I favorited and which I like is this piece:
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Hard to say, but I do like markhosmer.
Jester-of-the-Clown – He is an excellent friend, the type you will only find 1 in 1 million. Everything he does has an air of self-discipline. He is also funny and has a great way words. Not to mention, he is the one person, other than Dracontar who puts effort in improving his artwork. Good work both of you!
Dracontar – One of the first friends I made along with High-Guard and Dementor314 when I created this account. He is fun to talk with and we have always had a great laugh. The crazy shit we get up to crazy.
fromthedead – He is very funny, great to talk with about anything, always has good responses. In addition, his art is badass, shame about all the pricks reporting his work over nothing. If they want to report something, they should be reporting all the underage and furry crap.
High-Guard – He is very intelligent, has a great knowledge of science fiction and is very down to Earth. We have also had great conversations, just that we are all busy these days.
Dementor314 – He is fun to talk with and we have much in common, especially Metal!
CrimsonMagpie – He is just awesome, awesome artwork (and style) and very witty.
SH9DOW – Very intelligent, we have had some very thoughtful conversations that make you question a lot. He is also a great world builder.
Ionosphere-Negate – Interesting to talk with, funny, sharp as a knife and always has awesome music recommendations.
draenei-friend – Had many interesting conversations about various subjects and is very open minded.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Falkii and phalalcrocorax who I have met in real life various times over the past three years have been two of the greatest friends I have ever had. Before 2012, I had been trying to dig my way out of a deep depression where I had no one. Now I have many friends, online and off. The result of me coming out of my depression has turned me into a different person altogether, although my artwork and the artwork I am interested is what is left over from the depression. While I was depressed it gave me a lot to think about, I now see the world differently and understand a lot. I can see and sense things.
I have known Jester-of-the-Clown for some time now and through all the conversations we have had so far, he has given me understanding.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Dry media, digital is a pain in the arse.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
In my room, on my own in a contemplative mood.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
All the laughs I have had with my friends and BHB.
