Gonna be absent I think...

Wed Sep 29, 2010, 12:23 PM


Hey guys, so sorry about not being about and very active much lately, I've just started back to University and I'm behind ALREADY, I don't even know how I did that. So needless to say I'll be concentrating on that work from here on in. I'll try and check in regularly and see what you crazy kids are all up to, maybe upload a thing or two now and again. In the meantime, hope everybody's doin okay, and excuse my absence :aww:

:peace:

Feature Time III & New Stock

Sun Aug 29, 2010, 12:17 PM


EDIT:
LOL I sent so many notifications to the people I featured in this journal that dA thinks I'm spamming and I can't comment anymore! How very retarded. But anyways...


So finally I have uploaded some new goodies over at my stock account! I'd love if you guys used some of it, I like to see what people make of my stuff. I'd also love if you used something other than my popular cliff image, and maybe didn't include a horse in what you make...but hey I guess beggars can't be choosers. Here's some samples, including my recently used Celtic cross image. More coming soon!

dArtEXPO

Don't forget, the dArtzine side project dArtEXPO is still going: get your suggestions in if you or someone you know would like to be featured. You can read more about this further down my main page.

DartEXPO

Tue Jul 13, 2010, 1:43 PM
Suggest an artist

So hey :D

Recently I've got on board with a new project run by dArtzine. For those of you who don't know, dArtzine is an independent webzine that focuses on promoting artists from DeviantArt in general. All categories of art presented in the community are taken in count to be promoted. We base the selection of the art included in the issues on the quality, concept, ORIGINALITY, and uniqueness as well as style and technique that the artists have. Nevertheless the webzine has a section special for beginners, where these ones will be encouraged to progress in their technique and helped by monitoring this progress.

The group has now started a new sideproject, the DartEXPO, which is a mainly visual feature of an individual artist, and myself and BeehiveStudio will be taking suggestions for this. If you would like to be considered for this webzine, or you would like to suggest another artist, please send either of us a note entitled DartEXPO suggestion.

Feature Time III


I've decided to make my feature journal a regular, or at least as regular a thing as my laziness/bad memory will allow me. On a weekly basis I'll try to feature as many new artworks as possible, so keep your eyes open for that.

Feature Time II

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 27, 2010, 8:46 AM

Apparently quite a few of you don't know I have a stock account! Well, I do :D And it's pretty easy to find, just stick a "-stock" at the end of my name... mindCollision-stock, go have a look, it's all free for any use including commerical. I'd really love more people to use it (particularly if you make something that doesn't have a horse in it, that'd be great.) There's a preview of some of my stock on my main page, just scroll down and look on the left. More will be uploaded soon!

In other news, I recently got my tongue pierced. It hurts a bit :( But I actually ate a full meal today, w00t, all is well in the world.

Here's another batch of awesome works I've come across lately, hopefully you'll like some of these too.
Hope everyone's doing okay.


:peace:

Feature Time!

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 17, 2010, 11:52 AM
I'm trying to knock myself out of this stupor I've been in lately, and in light of that I want to give something back to the community (to put it as cheesily as possible (I don't think cheesily is a word but what the hell)), so here's a big feature for ya'll and maybe soon I'll have some tutorials up.

Enjoy :)

Okay does dA only allow certain file sizes now or is there a bug or something, because it won't allow the full size of the last deviation I uploaded, and this is severely irritating me!

25K & Stock

Journal Entry: Sun May 9, 2010, 9:28 AM



Soooooo I hit 25,000 pageviews today :dance:. I know pageviews aren't the "be all and end all", but I think it's pretty sweet that I've reached that landmark :)



Anyway, as promised the first person who caught me the screenshot got a 1 month subscription on me, and that person was CapturingReality2010, so thanks and I hope you enjoy your subby :)




For those of you who didn't know, I also have a stock account over at mindCollision-stock. Here's a preview of what you can get there:

Little Island by mindCollision-stockTower by mindCollision-stockPillars by mindCollision-stockSecret Garden Door by mindCollision-stock

All of my stuff is free to use for both commerical and non-commerical work, all I require is a credit and notification if the work is commercial.

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 29, 2010, 5:30 AM








Hey guys, I just noticed that I am nearing ever closer to a sort of landmark in my page views! Took me three years, but I am now preetttyy darn close to 25,000 page views, which is pretty cool right? Anyway I know it's currently about 400 views away, but whoever grabs the 25,000 views screenshot for me I will give a 1 month subscription to, just for funsies :)



All you have to do is note me when you have the screenshot, I will give you my email address, you send the pixture and I give you your subscription. Simples!



In the meantime, here's an assortment of nice things to look at.

Recent lack of anything much...

Tue Jan 12, 2010, 12:32 PM


Just a short journal to let anyone who's interested know that my reason for inactivity of late is because I've been spending most of my time online helping out in digital-artists. Not that I'm complaining, just an explanation for my distinct lack of art. I'm hoping to come up with some new shiz pretty soon. Thinking about a new style, and hoping to branch out into different genres of art, so here's hoping some of that actually happens :)



To do list...

Make some new art

Make some tutorials

Branch out into new styles

Edit my dA page

Design an online portfolio

Do some bloody exercise...

Groups, Tutorials and Thanks

Tue Dec 15, 2009, 7:05 AM





First of all, thanks to everyone who commented on my last journal, I received a lot of really helpful advice so that was awesome :)

I recently joined two groups as a contributor: they are :iconimanipulate: and :icondigital-artists:, both great groups with slightly different ways of working which I like. One is a bit more easy going and is open to everyone, whereas the other asks a bit more for quality rather than quantity. My inbox has been going mad lately because of them but I'm enjoying it :)

Atm I am back to having no inspiration in regards to Photoshop- everytime I try to make something I just hit a brick wall. It's mainly just down to having no ideas and trying to throw something together. So I was thinking maybe of putting together some tutorials to fill in the gap, would anyone be interested in that? I will maybe put up a poll to see if there's enough interest.

Topics would be covering basic things like extracting objects, using layer masks, blending etc, but hopefully in a way that is clear and easy to follow. You can all let me know if there's anything you'd like me to cover, even perhaps a walk-through?

Right, I'm off to do some Christmas shopping XD

To be honest, I'm kind of glad in a way that a lot of you guys aren't really active when it comes to my page, because I've gotten really sick of seeing "popular" "artists" here upload crap and it have zillions of faves within the hour. It's nice to know that the faves I have on my work I actually deserve, and I don't just get it because my watchers fave every single thing I upload, regardless of quality.

Apologies, thought it was just my time to jump on the rant bandwagon :)
Good to get that off my chest...

New journal, yay. Old one was boring me and this is nice and fancy.
Would like to design my own sometime, see if I can get it coded. I start my new course tomorrow so maybe I will actually be able to do that myself soon :D

On my way to 20,000 pageviews yay! I remember when I got all excited about 1000...


Blahblah, don't have much to say I guess, 'cept thanks for all the recent faves and views etcetc.

New stock and Aegis-Strife (Please Read!)

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 5, 2009, 8:15 AM





I just updated my stock account over at mindCollision-stock. Go check it out if you're interested, I have a few up there now that I'm quite proud of :)



Recently I have been following the journals submitted by the brilliant artist Aegis-Illustration here on dA. He has been struggling recently with one problem after another, and he still manages to try and have a sense of humour about it all. You only have to read his journal entries to see what he's had to go through, from being ripped off by a fake landlord to having to sleep under a bridge.

This guy really needs some help and support, especially with money. He is such a talented artist and has pretty much no time or resources in order to make some of that art. I feel like I should do something to help, and as I have something like 237 watchers at the minute, I thought I would petition you guys to help him out too, either with a journal entry like this or by buying his prints or services as an artist. Even a supportive comment in his direction.

I have included just a small selection of some of his beautiful prints below. You can view them all here, and contact him for commissions or information about his illustrations at aegis.strife@gmail.com.

I am currently looking for stock in order to bring my ideas to light, but I lack the required amount of drive atm so I apologise if it takes a while for my page to see some action again :giggle:

In the meantime, thanks to all my watchers and everyone else for the continued support. My cyber breasts appreciate it.

“The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”
-Socrates

"Minimal Art is a term used to describe paintings and sculpture that thrive on simplicity in both content and form. The aim of Minimalism is to allow the viewer to experience the work more intensely without the distractions of composition, theme and so on."

Minimalism is one of my personal favourite forms of art. Here is a selection of beautiful minimalist work for you to feast your eyes on.

My sister got her mojo back :D
She recently completed a new artwork, and I think it's beautiful :)
If you like traditional art, paintings, abstract/surreal work, or just something colourful, then please go check it out and fave/comment if you like it!

You can see it here :pointr: blue-amber.deviantart.com/art/…

Be sure to peruse the rest of her gallery too :aww:


And thanks for all the recent support of my work. I'm currently trying to put together some new stuff, but most of my time is spent in work so progress is slow, and my brain is fuddled. I'll get there though, don't despair.
