The scene from your fav movie or series CONTEST!ONE MONTH LEFT! Come on, give my contest s try
As for now, I haven't received [yet?] an enormous number of entries, so chances to win are high! Please consider taking part in the contest. Or maybe you've already started your drawing, hm?
Wersja polska: http://ilojleen.blogspot.com/2012/10/konkurs.html
Since it's my 10th art anniversary this year [I took up drawing exactly 10 years ago], I decided to make a contest. I asked the readers of my Polish blog what kind of contest they want, a raffle or they want to draw something, if yes, what technique and what theme do they prefer. Basing on their choices and my own ideas, I came up with this contest:
The scene from your favourite movie or series
Any movie or series counts, new, old, foreign, your domestic, black & white, colourful. You can include as many people in your work as you wish, but one person at least. You may d
Huge Game of Thrones feature!I'm a big fan of Game of Thrones series, my favourite characters are Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister. I'm planning to read books, too. Don't know when, but I'm going to make some GoT fan art [Tyrion, Jon, Danaerys, Cersei, Catelyn, Arya, Sansa, Ned, Robb... yeah big plans, I wonder how many of them I will realize haha]. I found some great screen caps to draw
Are there any fans of GoT? Do you prefer the tv-show or books?

Got some art supplies,a master's degree and a job!Hey there!
Many things happened since the last time I wrote a journal...
First of all, the most recent news: I defended my MA thesis with flying colours It means it's the definite end of my education. I'm thinking about signing up for Spanish classes next year, but it's not an obligatory education, right?
Secondly, just before getting a master's degree, I got a job. My first job ever! And guess what? It's connected with my passion: I'll be working in an art supplies store! I'm both happy and scared, lol I'll be working late, it means I won't have too much free time to be online... or to draw
I wonder if anyone cares since I've been getting less and less feedback since few months, but whatever.
Thirdly, I've become a Derwent tester in my country! My job is to write reviews about their products. Unfortunately I don't have time nor decent abilities to write these reviews in English, but if someone asks for some specific Derwent art suppli

Tricksters in Fantasy LiteratureArticle Series: Tricksters in Literature, Part 4 of 5
One of the most beloved genres in all of popular culture, including literature and mainstream media, is that of fairytales and fantasy. As children, we grow up listening to fairytales with “happily ever after” endings at bedtime, and those stories fuel dreams of dragons and princesses and knights in shining armor as we sleep at night. As we grow into adolescence and adulthood, we graduate into the larger realm of fantasy where we are consumed by entire worlds, myths, legends, new creatures and races of people, knights whose armor isn’t so shiny, damsels who are perfectly capable of saving themselves, magic, and other supernatural phenomena. Delving into a good novel and losing oneself in the wonder that is fantasy is a favorite pastime of countless people of all ages.
So, where does the trick

FAQWhat pencils and supplies do you most often use? (Including coloured pencils )
For graphite drawings I use a fairly basic set of tools and I do have preferred brands. I mainly use Tombow Mono 100 pencils, Tombow Mono Zero Erasers, Blu-Tack (instead of a kneaded eraser), Tortillions, colour shaper and Tissue if I'm blending. I mainly use a smooth plate finish paper for graphite drawings, my preferred brand is Mellotex, but I also use Winsor and Newton Extra Smooth Bristol board. My essential kit is here http://pbird12.deviantart.com/gallery/30897635#/d5euwgp it's not exhaustive, but it's what I use most of all.
For coloured pencil drawings I use Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and Blu-Tack and occasionally a touch of white acrylic for highlights if I've lost them in the colouring process. I like a Hot Pressed Watercolour paper for colour pencil drawings. It's smooth enough to keep everything looking ni

A big giant thank you to the amazing deviants and groups who art sponsoring this article! :ico
The results + misc. info + Big Weekly Features!The results
First, the results of that "Watchers Feature!" test some of you helped with: after 2 weeks there's still less Favs than people featured on the latest one http://diamond4girl.deviantart.com/journal/WATCHERS-FEATURE-pt-23-318773207 , but nonetheless, with some more Favs than usual, the feature ended up in the Footer for about a day and half and your works have been seen by 3-4 times more people than usual. (1100+ on the latest one vs. >400 views on the few previous ones). Thank you all who helped with the test. I consider my theory relatively proved, so it's up to you what you do in the future. Btw, glad some of you finally figured out you can fav Journals!
In case you missed it, but you're interested, I wrote a little "tutorial" on making features, especially big/huge ones and all in extremely time saving and easy way AND with your thumbs all arranged nicely in your Journal http://diamond4girl.deviantart.com/journal/Tutoria

Blood BrothersBrookie always holds my hand when we cross the street. She's never given a reason for it, she just does it. It's become this unspoken rule with us that whenever we cross the street together, she slips her hand in mine and I lace my fingers through hers and we walk hand-in-hand until we reach the other side and she drops her hand and we both wipe our palms on our jeans. Brookie's a little scared of crossing the street. Her poppa died in a car crash when we were six. He was a pedestrian. She's never gotten over it.
Brookie is my best friend going on sixteen years now, which is pretty impressive considering we're both sixteen. We don't have some cute little story about how we were born in the same hospital on the same day or about how our mothers were best friends long before they were pregnant with us and somehow passed on that bond while we were still in utero. No, Brookie and I met the same way ever
Life is but a DreamWe are just unnourished frail bodies,
overfed with white lies and short-lived-euphorias.
Books filled with black letters,
etching lurid images into our utmost dreams.
Veering us from the big picture...
the one we fail to paint ourselves.
Our fists much too busy with fights,
that we are bound to lose.
Too occupied in line waiting,
for creativity to be let loose like a stray dog.
As if we will find home in this pursuit of happiness...
but we only enclose each other in small rooms
with nothing but old laptops.
How many times I've guessed which letter could it be...
Which letter could it be?
To free us from havoc-stricken-thoughts?
They come and go, unending like 24 hour subway stations.
There's no break for this lonely man,
heaving every breathe of stale air
into my overused lungs...
Living in confined walls of flesh
held up with brittle paper-mache bones.
Which day is it that I will burst out from this cage of a life?
And hover with the Gods found in carefully binded bo
