I tend to really like coffee art as the medium creates a great effect of antiquity in the pieces- making them look more like vintage. B...

Watercolor eye study by jane-beata

I love the life and the intensity of the eyes bring especially with the light glints on the irises. The detailing on the eye is just am...

Regarding Critiques, I tend NOT to give 5 stars in any artworks at all. I believe that there is no 'perfect' art (in fact, I think some 'imperfections' in art make them endearing in a way).

To be honest, I try to be fair and give artists a good constructive comment rather than praising their artwork overall.

I am just doing Art as a hobby although I have studied it on my GCSE and on International Baccalaureate. I am a Law graduate of University of Kent but it won't stop me from drawing and painting. :)

Art has been with me since I was very little. I developed a love of Art naturally as the subject was not very taught much in the Philippines. I knew back then that I love to paint and draw, and I also often steal A4 pieces of paper and bring it to my school to doodle on them. When I came in UK, where they DO teach Art, my love of art has heightened incredibly and I tend to stay Art close to me even though I will be doing Law in University.

I am also keen on Photography but, again, only as a hobby. I feel that I will be a terrible digital artist as I feel that there is quite little control in producing a digital art in my opinion. I tend to like being the traditional pencils, paints, and paper kind of person. Believe me, I've tried digital art and it failed completely. Nowadays, I tend to do digital art in my tablet using either SketchbookPro or Artflow.

Regarding my deviations, I don't tend to give a "Download" option to people because, well, plagiarism. If there are people who wants to use my artworks, it would be appreciated if they prompted me first.

Regarding critiques, I tend to be quite harsh if not fair. I don't give people 5 stars on their work as I really like the artworks equally. I tend to be quite a constructive critic when it comes to other people's artworks. Similarly, I also like if some of my fellow deviantArtists to also constructively comment on my works although I don't actually mind the short comments either. But I don't tolerate flames and unhelpful or unsightly comments. I tend to block the users like that.
Hello people! Love

This journal update should have been made weeks ago since there are some recent things that happened that will hugely affect my progress on making more art (particularly, my illustrations) and my creative stuff in general. Sweating a little... But here I am now and I am very sorry that there has been nothing from me for a LOOOONG while.

So, I have news!

First off, I got a job. Your Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 kind of work. So, I will only have weekends to do my other projects. That is mainly my novel and my illustrations. However, I also got asked by someone to make a cover artwork for their novel which will affect the two main  projects. Additionally, I have an exhibition artwork to do and a competition artwork as well. So, busy! Busy! Busy!Nuu  But it shall be all fine in the end. It's just... It might take months before I actually finish a piece to upload here.

However, I will be posting updates of my illustrations on my blog, Fairytale Illustrations, every Saturday (GMT) so if you like, you could go and follow me on these journeys! News and updates will also appear on my Twitter, so do follow me as well! I have finally given up on Tumblr since I do not think it is benefitting me anymore than Twitter and Blogger so I deleted that. But I do hope that there will not be any consequences. :shifty:

Anyway, that is all I wanted to say!

See you soon! Huggle!
