8 yrs on dA + Art Plan of 2015 + PhotographyNo Journals for weeks and then I "spam" you with 3 in short time. In the first two I overwhelmed you with features, this time with a long wall of text. I know only couple of people at most will actually read this, or just glance over it, but still, I had to write it, mostly for myself so I can read it at the end of the year and compare it with reality.
Firstly, I can't believe I've been on this stupid site (I say it with a lot of love) for 8 years already! I missed my 8th dA anniversary which was on Jan 29. Since this entry is so long, I'll skip the importance dA (and its artists, dA friends) has had for me all these years blahblah this time.
I'm 6 final exams and a thesis away from graduating and getting my master's degree, so I decided to take a little break from studying after weeks of never ending exams and seminars before the finals start the next week, and I came up with an art plan of 2015 while sipping homemade chocolate liqueur.
I'm sharing this with you i
Weekly Features! (120+)I'm a few weeks behind with my Weekly Features! so I'm making it up with this. I have a wall of text to write about various things, updates etc., but will spare you (this time) since the entry is so long already. Enjoy the features!
Btw, if not overwhelmed enough already, you can also check out:

Traditional Art Favorites of 2014! 2013 • 2012 • 2011 • 2010 • 2009 • 2008
A few weeks later than usual, but here I present my 7th annual traditional art feature of artworks submitted in the year of 2014!
I must admit, in the previous years I easily found twice, trice more artworks to feature and this year I have so few. I actually struggled to find a couple of dozen more so the collection is not so drastically smaller compared to previou

Weekly Features! + WIPsHi, how have you all been? I should forbid myself use of word "soon" when talking about my art since it's lost all meaning. New art soon is lately never a few days, more like weeks, months(!) even, as you know all too well. So, I'll just say I'm drawing, working on one of the many WIPs. The hardest part is done, but I gotta hurry up, actually, not even hurry up but cut procrastination drastically and simply draw for a decent amount of time daily, whenever I can, before things heat up at Uni. Anyways, here are some WIPs. Feel free to let me know what you'd like to see first, if anything, and I'll take it into account when deciding among those that have more priority. Honestly, I'd like to start a new work, several even, but I really, really mustn't until I finished at least some of these because: SPN and House WIP - cca. 2,5 yrs ago, parrot WIP cca. 3 yrs ago...Those following me on FB and tumblr saw them long time ago.
Weekly Features! + StockThis week a smaller feature, but since I uploaded over 100 new stock images to my stock account recently, many of which make nice refs for digital and traditional drawings/paintings, type of art majority of my watchers do (I think?), I also decided to put here a random selection of some of my stock images in case there's some thing you like, but also to help the visibility of my still pretty much unknown stock account.

In 1968 The New York Times described it as a “double-fingered version of Churchill’s victory sign”

“Star Wars: Battle Pod” has been released in arcades across America. An international release of the game is imminent.
The game is about the size of a moderately–large photo booth, and it weighs around 1,000 pounds. To enter, you open a small door and take a seat inside the compartment.

52 Hertz Whale:
Is Anyone Out There?
Each year he makes his migration south from the Aleutian Islands to a breeding area in the Pacific Ocean parallel to Central California, looking for a mate. Unlike other blue and fin whales, his more than 6000 miles a year round-trip swim is a solitary one. He does not travel along with the blues or the fins, because he is neither. He is most probably either a hybrid blu
