Hello lovely deviants!
It's contest time!
I'm going to be holding a little contest here. It's going to last until 1. July 2014
As some of you may have realised by now; I love eyes! So, I want to spread this love, by helping you see
(pun totally intended)the light.
So what is this contest about?!
DRAWING EYES! ..or painting
Basically anything that is traditional, no photomanipulation or digital art.
I'm going to be a little more specific here. I have some eye images in my stock folder: http://acjub.deviantart.com/gallery/40451955 . I want you to use any one
Opinions on the fake NatMorleyYes I'm posting a journal as well.
This is about the ever so famous natmorley
This journal is not really meant as proof of anything, only opinions on the matter.
You may have seen her drawings somewhere on this site, and maybe you are a fan. A good number of pencil artists, me included, believe them all to be utter rubbish. Fake rubbish that is.
Now why on earth would you say such a thing?
Well let's have a look at them, shall we?
First of all they all match the reference 100%. Even tracing won't do that for you. Also the drawing looks to be perfect and smooth underneath, and then she's scribbled on top as I there was no tomorrow. I would say that is a bit curious. Why make a perfect drawing only to ruin it with scribbling?
That's her style you might say. Well lets then look at what she says about her drawings. Oh she uses about 5 hours on a portrait. Trust me, if the drawing is perfect (minus the ugly scribbling on top) then you'd use a LOT more than 5 hours.
Watchers Feature #2Please this journal to help spread the love!

Merry Christmas, and Happy HolidaysHello everybody,
A big hug to all my stubborn watchers, and a welcome hug to all new ones... It's almost the end of a year. A big year for me, to say the least. In my professional life, I have been making some exiting new stuff, which hopefully will pay off the next year. In my free time, I have been drawing. It's even difficult for myself to believe I have been drawing for only for a year now.
Comments and reactions have been so helpful, and motivating to pursue my dream of traditional drawing. When I started a year ago, I gave myself 2 years to strengthen my drawing skills. I must be honest and admit that I did not expect for myself, that after a year, I would already produce the stuff I am drawing now.
It must be something that was hiding in myself, and I must also give credit and applause to a lot of people on dA who have been so supporting and caring this last year.
So, for them, I want to share some great drawings from these amazing, and
A TRIBUTE TO REALISM
-Why don't you just take a photo and a bunch of other stupid yet justified questions-
After years of being bothered by the same question , I have finally decided to write down my feelings and thoughts about this issue. And I think the timing is perfect considering I've somehow reached a stage of finding satisfaction in my own work; which will hopefully result in this journal being informative, interesting, maybe even educational, but above all stop people from being prejudice. If I had written it earlier it probably would have resulted in ranting and raging, at least to some degree.
I hope you will enjoy this read, but unless you think you can relate or learn more about some things, stop reading because this is going to be LONG
Let me start by asking you - what about your own work makes you feel like an artist? What makes any of us 'artists'? Many people imagine artists to be somewhat like mad scientists, but the
The Then & Now Feature.:iconshakecancerplz:
The idea for this feature has developed over the past month or so, triggered by the comments we all get from time to time, like; "'I'll never be able to draw like that" or "I wish I could learn how to do that".
Also around a month ago I was asked a few questions by a very sweet, polite 16 year old girl on here who was extremely grateful that I took the time to answer her.
To cut a long story short, I've taken this girl under my wing in the hope of giving her the encouragement and feedback she lacks from those around her and also to develop her skills and knowledge to the point where she feels confident enough to experiment and grow on her own.
So, this feature is mainly for those just starting out in the world of graphite along with those doubting that they could ever improve beyond their current level and is just a very small selection of graphite artists I both admire and aspire to become as good as. All were chosen for this feature due

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
