2012 + 1000 Watchers + Some Traditional WizardsHi!
We survived Y2K, Bird flu, crazy cows, 11-S, earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear disasters, global warming, crisis, end of the world few times...
C'mon, 2012... Let's see if you have balls!
I realized that I passed 1000 watchers, that must be a joke! I mean, there are 1000 users that can have interest in whatever I may pump it up, you don't know how grateful I am and how helpful is your support to me.
I want to leave you with some magicians, they have the privilege to own magical pencils, erasers, tortillions, paintbrushes, sheets, canvas... and hands. Maybe some are a bit crazy, but support them!

Mozzzquitozzz...Welcome to a new feature and random ramble!
:iconbluerose1plz:They are eatin me alive!:iconbluerose6plz:
The least the bloody mosquito can do is stop buzzing. Hearing them creates the anticipation of impending itchiness, which makes the whole thing worse ...and another thought - if a mozzie regurgitates the blood from a previous victim into a new one, are you at risk of contracting blood born diseases? Either way, those buzzing bastards must die!

Fake art - why care and what to look forI posted this last week for anyone looking for help to spot fake art. This is not law, if you don't care, feel free to move on. But if you do care that there are fakers out there, then maybe this could be of some use to you too. We have a serial faker on the loose on dA today so it sparked this little lot once more.
So, the questions/scenarios asked are always the same and the responses/justifications are always the same, but give them a minute to sink in before replying and insulting.
(Q1) Why do you care if someone is cheating what does it have to do with you?
(A1) Well, this is a public ART site and if people are submitting art that is not actually what they claim it to be, then they are dishonest. This will annoy some people and not others. If your passionate about your work then the chances are you'll find it insulting to the artistic community as a whole. Additionally, a lot of admins of groups HAVE to deal with fakes as a daily occure
The results of Draw Tom Ripley Contest
The results of Draw Tom Ripley contest
It has been 4 and a half months since I started holding my first contest Draw Tom Ripley Contest which is a long journey full of new experiences. The origin is just an idea to cope with many deviants who kept asking me for points since I won 5,000 points from Plan Gone Wrong Contest last year. I told them to draw me Tom Ripley first and I'd give them some points in return. After I had got 2 pieces, I started to think "why not make it as a contest? It's gonna be fun."
Deceptive Deviants.If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything.
This is a journal I've been meaning to write for a while but I don't know where to begin.
I'm going to list some scenarios that have bothered me and afterwards give a short comment.
Just to be clear:
- This concerns traditional art only.
- I don't disapprove or dislike all of these examples but I want all media and alterations be listed in the artist's notes.
- This is just my pet peeves.
- there are many deviants that I like that use effects.
- I'm not an art-nazi, this is for those who pretend to be something they're not.
ONE LAST UPDATE:
- This does not include correcting scanning and photography quality loss - I have no problem with that.
1. Sepia color overlay.
There are many deviants that change the color of their graphite drawings from black & white to a faded brown in Photoshop. Fundamentally I don't have a problem with that but it should be listed in the media since

Traditional Artists Contest *more or less closed?EDIT:
Hello Traditional Artists
Today was the last day of my commission contest. I'm very thankful to all who have participated for their kindness and good will. I have chosen 3 works to buy as it was my primal intention and soon I'll be contacting the authors so we can agree on the terms of purchase.
I was contacted to extend the contest period, but as you can easily understand, this is not a regular contest: I think that any of you, traditional artists reading this, who have the will to produce a piece accordingly the rules below can contact me any time to show me a WIP or a finished work. If I like the piece, I'll buy it
Also below (scroll down to the end of the article) you can find my favourite works, wonderful pieces, just like I was looking for.
For now I'll remove the references I don't want any more but I'll keep the others available until the end of January 2013, so you are welcome to use them as I'm still commissioning you!
Thank you to all
