Traditional Art Favorites of 20122011 • 2010 • 2009 • 2008
Another year is almost over and it's time for my annual traditional art feature of artworks submitted in the year of 2012!
This is my favorite, the most difficult and the most time consuming art feature to make, as well as the one I'm never really satisfied with: it's a real pain to decide which works to include in this little collection when, just from this small part of the most amazing works dA is filled with you have the luck to find and see each year, you have at least a few hundreds of top

Huuuge Weekly Features!There hasn't been Weekly Features! for a while so you get an extra big one this time! Hope you enjoy! The Watchers Features! will be submitted in a day or two so you still have time to paste your thumbs.
Art Updates: very slow progressing graphite triptych, abandoned colored pencil drawing and white pencil drawing on black paper are currently on my table, no idea when I'll be able to finish any of them since I have an overwhelming number of exams and other uni stuff this month and then all the finals the next month.
New Year's Art "Resolution": I could write here a long list of things I'd like to do, like to try out, etc. and the list wouldn't be unrealistic, unlikely to accomplish, but yet I know it's maybe the best to just set a general minimum of any 1 work per month, although I know I might not even be able to pull off as little as that...
HUGE Weekly Features!I hope you can survive this amount of awesomeness. Keep scrolling down at your own risk.

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?

Fakers and LosersA while ago, :iconpbird12: a.k.a Paula wrote an article
which states clear cut facts so as to why the whole issue about someone faking their art creates rage waves through the art community!
The last week has been a riot which ended up in me getting blocked by two deviants here who clearly have something to hide!
I obviously care much less about the fact that there are many artists here on dA who get more famous than others considering the skill work. Some people get lucky and some don't. It's not easy getting known around this site.
But the fact that people would want to fake art to get accolades makes me angrier than ever.
Here are two examples on what happens when you try to confront artists whom you are suspicious about!
Example 1- The "awesome":iconnatmorley:
Now now Bratnorley) , you don't need to get all worked up for a single comment there do you?
You obviously think we are all stupid people here who don't really see what you are doing? The scr
CPC Member Interviews - Issue #07: =Diamond4girl:icondiamond4girl:
Hi! Most of you know me as =Wicked-Illusion (I manage multiple accounts), while my real name is reserved only for the chosen ones. Just kiddin', but still, you can only have my initials for now: I.P. I'm from Croatia. Student. Will be 21 on the first day of summer.
Do you remember when you started drawing? Did something or someone in particular inspire you to pick up your pencils?
"Yes, it was in 2006 when I really started to draw. Although, ever since I was a kid, people had noticed that I was more interested in art, and maybe more talented, than other kids, and I probably did more artsy stuff than an average kid does. It all started with the discovery of ZindyZone, *Zindy's personal website, so I have *Zindy to thank for the fact that I even started to draw at all! I totally fell in
Mozzzquitozzz...Welcome to a new feature and random ramble!
:iconbluerose1plz:They are eatin me alive!:iconbluerose6plz:
The least the bloody mosquito can do is stop buzzing. Hearing them creates the anticipation of impending itchiness, which makes the whole thing worse ...and another thought - if a mozzie regurgitates the blood from a previous victim into a new one, are you at risk of contracting blood born diseases? Either way, those buzzing bastards must die!

CPC Member Interviews - Issue #05: *pbird12:iconpbird12:
My name besides =pbird12 is Paula McDonald (no Ronald or Old MacDonald jokes, please!). In my head I am 20 years old and will be forever; sadly, in earth years I am a wee bit older than this. I’m 33. I am Scottish and live with my fiancé and two beautiful children. My little boy is 2 and my little girl is 5.
Do you remember when you started drawing? Did something or someone in particular inspire you to pick up your pencils?
"I always drew as a kid and loved Art class at school, but was never able to draw people - I found it very frustrating. When I left school I went to college and studied Graphic Design for 3 years, and I think it turned me against art in general - I hated it! So, I didn't draw for more than 10 years. I started drawing realism when I joined dA, so about 15 months or so ago, and now I can draw people!"
