21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Blue Fire - Blue Morpho Butterfly with that grungy touch on: February 24, 2014 06:27:14 PM
Okay I LOVE moths and butterflies. Moths a smidge more, but c'mon, they're fab.

This little dude is a Blue Morpho, they have the most incredible sheen to their wings. So damn pretty!

It's painted with acrylics and a tiny bit of coloured pencil on a 11"x14" piece of watercolour paper, and then sealed with a glossy finish.


22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Horn Pendants - Dani Style on: February 18, 2014 05:26:38 PM
So long ago I was inspired to make some of these for myself, and for some reason today got chosen as the day (makes sense, I have a final tomorrow, procrastination time!!).

I made these babies with some (pink) polymer clay, inserted a fixture for hanging them on a chain and popped them in the oven to cure. They then got a layer of matte black paint, then got all beautiful with coats of two of my current favorite nailpolishes. On Her Majesty's Secret Service by OPI and ... Peace, Love & OPI by OPI I think? And then lacquered with a couple layers of my clear top coat.

I love them so freaking much

Both of these are for the same person - happy dogs!
Both are done with acrylics, the golden pup on a 10"x10" canvas, the husky on a 16"x16".


...and Sakari!

Here is how I spent most of my winter break!

This one is a gift for a random gift exchange at my family's Christmas party. I wanted to keep it for myself! Ha!

This one is a contest entry - I got first place! Yay! Its actually an ACEO, so a little artcard, 2.5"x3.5" with acrylics.

ACEO trade! Again, wanted to keep this one!

25  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Ancient Smiles - Bones and Butterflies on: January 12, 2014 09:39:42 AM
Three things that I love : bones, butterflies (actually a moth..) and coffee. <3

Plus some tea, I suppose. Originally I dyed some watercolour paper with a very strong mixture of black tea and some brown ink, which always results in such pretty textures, not to mention the colour. Then I went to town with black ink pens, then shaded with a strong brew of coffee, and highlighted with some white ink.

Sabre-toothed cats have pretty skulls, and Comet moths are super neat. <3

Bit of an accomplishment, this piece was. I very rarely do any work with humans in my art, and although it was one hell of a struggle, I'm very happy with the result! I painted it with acrylics on a 16"x20" canvas

27  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Breaking Point - Raven With a Golden Ribbon on: January 12, 2014 09:32:14 AM
This little piece is called "Breaking Point", hours of tiny details with india ink and golden ink. That stuff is so shimmery and metallic, so pretty. <3

Gorgeous! Wow, I am stunned, all ink?!

Indeed, all ink! Smiley

Oh my god I LOVE IT!
Its so flirty and flattering, and unique enough that you won't have any doppelgangers, yet without triggering the "what the..?" thought in the minds of strangers. Not to mention you get to flip the old "Thanks, I made it" line when you inevitably get plastered with compliments. Well done!

Neat! Have you checked out that ketchup painter? He is on YouTube, and very interesting to watch.
And for the smellies? Just make a darker coffee! It might last longer for the scent.

Very wonderful artwork. I really like your shading skills. And the perspective. I can almost feel that I am in the picture, myself! Like it is just in front of me here, and I am touching it. Very wonderful.

Have you thought to submit things for National Geographic...or those types of books? They commission artists for various projects. You would be great for this. Reader's Digest is another one who might take an interest in your work. I see lots of great artists featured there, too. And you are one they should consider.

Please don't hold yourself back...you have a talent. Don't be afraid to put it out there. A "NO" is just that, and keep going. When people see what you can do, there is going to be someone who takes hold on it. If you don't show off...no one can know that you wish to share with the world.

I know that we are secure here with our "show and tell" kind of thing...but you have it going on....GO SHINE! Grin


I have indeed checked out that ketchup painter, its amazing what you can do with well, anything!

Ooh I feel a serious hoppity sort of excitement in my body reading this, I'd absolutely LOVE to do something for a major magazine (or anything major, really). I'm off to go search for some opportunities!!

And thank you so much for your support, it really means the world to me. <3
