Still alive and Gargoyles 20th anniversaryHi everyone!So I'm around DA again at the moment. I'm really very happy to see that some of the old "faces" are still around and still watch my gallery despite of the lack of updates. Thank you so much! This means VERY MUCH to me!! As many people visit my gallery because of my "Gargoyles" art, I'd like to ask the following:The TV-show has it's 20th anniversary soon. Do you plan on doing something for the occasion (like drawing a picture or having a party or attending the Gathering at Convergence, ...)? I'm curious!
End of the world today...... and I seem to live in an odd part of the world as nothing much has happened here, yet XD
Art memeHi everyone!I found this meme on the net and I thought it could be interesting to some of you, so i filled it out.1. when drawing, what program(s) do you use? why?- Photoshop and sometimes Sketchbook Pro (for digital sketching). Illustrator for T-shirt designs. After trying some different programs, I know that these work best for me. I'd like to try Sai, too, but it doesn't seem to work on Mac, yet.2. brush size, what kind (watercolor, pen, ect), and canvas size?- Canvas size: usually between 1500 px and 3000 px per side, later resized to about 1000 to 1500 px.- Brush: 3 to 9 hard round brush for sketching and lineart, different soft or hard brushes for coloring3. when you do start sketching, and after doing the circles and lines ect, what do you start with first? (ex. hair, head, eyes)- Eyes. They give the picture a soul 4. are your sketches detailed and nice-looking, or are they rushed and sloppy so you can begin inking already?- First they are
A belated happy 2012 and other stuffHi everyone!I know I'm wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy late ... but well (I really need to work on my timing!!!!) ... I wish everyone a nice year 2012 with lots of luck, good health and fun and without any kinds of world's ends Some stuff is/will be going on for me this year:- :iconchireiya: coming back from Japan!!!!! Can't wait to see her again!!!!- getting married in Scotland (?)- going to the zoo with :iconRainFreckles: and Oliver Strohhalm often (I hope)- looking for a new job- improving my drawing skills (I made 12(!) conbadges within 6 hours at a party at New Years Eve ... and I liked it )- learning to play bass guitar- attending a dog sledding course- and probably some other things I don't remember right now (any suggestions?)And what I'd also like to say: I found out that Randeer/Caribou are awsome and most impressive beings (I never had a thing for deer of any kind before)! They walk hundreds of miles being pregnant and even cross rivers and mountains!!
Next level art theftHehe, my art-stealing "fans" took it to the next level: My art has been stolen for the purpose of making money with it!=> http://www.spreadshirt.com/ferret-t-shirts-C3376A8077753I feel kind of flattered o.oWell, that being said, it's time to do something about it...
Can you recommend a good anime?Second journal entry in one day ... something has to be wrong with me XDAnyway, as the title says: I'm looking for a good anime or animated TV show I can enjoy when I want to relax.I already watched and enjoyed very much: Gargoyles Pokemon season 1 to 5 Ranma 1/2 The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya MLP FIMI also watched and liked Mahou Shojo Madoka Magika Wolf's Rain Fullmetal AlchemistThough as these are pretty serious shows, they are not as relaxing as the ones mentioned first.From what I liked so far, is there anything you can recommend me to watch next? I'd be very happy about suggestions!
Kudos MLP FansSo yesterday the new MLP FIM episode finally aired (which was awesome btw) and to my surprise fanarts of the episode popped up all over DA almost instantly. I gotta say I'm impressed. Kudos Bronies!
Mahou Shoujo Madoka MagicaJust finished watching the anime series today. I have to say it totally blew me away! Great character design both appearance and background story, awesome animation and music and a really deep and interesting storyline! Definitely not what I imagined, when I first heard of the show. Best "magical girl" anime I've ever seen!!
Final ExamsTomorrow is the day: My final exams at graphic design school! I'm excited ... and a little scared actually ^^
Leaving DeviantArtI've been a member of DeviantArt for a very very long time. It says 6 years but I've definitely been on here lurking for over 10! As you may (or may not) have noticed, I'm no longer active here. Mainly because I feel the interface and community spirit has declined, but also because I feel like I've moved on from the platform. I will still post pictures from time to time (and I won't delete any of my work!) but please do not make any effort to contact me over here. You can follow/contact me through any of the sites below. I hope to see you there! www.patreon.com/hannahalexanderartworkwww.facebook.com/hannahalexanderartworkwww.instagram.com/hannah_alexander_artworkwww.etsy.com/shop/hannahalexanderart
