DeviantArtist QuestionnaireI may not be as active as much as I used to be, but I haven't forgotten about you. 1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?Well, I joined 7 years ago, but I've been active for about 3 or so only. 2. What does your username mean?This is actually my second username. I changed it the moment they made that available. My old username was EugenijeKornelije which was really just a name from my plush fish keychain. In english it would be EugeneCornelius. 3. Describe yourself in three words.No can do. I'm not good at that stuff, so why don't you describe me in three words? 4. Are you left or right handed?Right handed. But I do many things with my left hand when I cook, it's easier for some reason. 5. What was your first deviation?I deleted most of my old deviations, so this is the last one I could find in my gallery. 6. What is yo
In this year and the nextTL;DR I wish you all a wonderful 2015! I will tell you right away that this will be a long-ish journal.here, have a drunk LegolasI hope that it will be a better year than 2014 was in many aspects. I'm not much for making resolutions, but I will list things that I'll try to do on deviantART more in this upcoming year.Become more active again. I miss some people from here, and I wish to talk to them more again. Draw more. Join some contests, feature other deviants, donate prizes (and actually do them) to contests.Make a to-do list on my profile page, so I don't lose track of things I have to draw for people.Get commissioned. It feels like wishful thinking but meh.. Clean up my gallery, delete super old drawings.I feel like there was something else I wanted to add to the list, but I can't remember it anymore. To get my group WeLoveTraditionalArt back into an active running state.:bigthumb50
I'm a shitty personI really truly am. I have been absent for so long from here, I don't even know how to come back. Or if I even want to. And I owe an apology to so many people. I really do. And so, I'm really really sorry for not replying to your messages and notes. I saw them all, but I just.. to be honest, I just didn't know what to say back to you.Many things have happened in the past year and a half. About some I'd rather not talk about.Anyway, becuase of the job at the nursing home (this had a development - I worked there for 3 months as a waitress and whatnot) I neglected many things, including deviantart. It's hard to work at a place where half of the people there are already with one leg in their grave. It literally drained all the energy out of me. Physically and mentally. And I stopped drawing around that time.From that moment on, I barely drew. E

Away on SaturdayI don't really know how muchyou care, but I thought I should let you know that I'll be away on Staruday for almost whole day. I doubt I'll get online when I get home, and I know that I won't be online at all while I'm on the trip.Anyway, I'm going with my parents and grandpa on a little shopping trip in Leibnitz (Austria). While they're gonna buy their stuff, I'm probably gonna look for new drawing supplies and stuff. I'm really excited about it 'cause I haven't been out of Croatia for 2 years now (since grandma passed away).The trip to there takes about 3 hours, so I need to pick a book to read in the car, and update my music on my phone. I'm gonna miss you all. Hope you'll have a great rest of the week. Recent favourites

i'll keep it short, but it's still importantI'm not gonna go into details because it's kind of complicated and hard to explain in English. So the short version is, I lost myinternship chance at the nursing home. There were some complications with some paperwork and because of that I can't get my internship there. I'm not sure who's more angry at the people who were in charge with that paperwork - me or the director of the nursing home. Anyway, I got payed for the week I worked there, but that's about it. Didn't get too much but it could've been worse.The worst part is, I feel like I'm back at the beginning, like I'm not moving anywhere. This job was supposed to get me back on track with my life, and now it just feels like it wasn't meant to be, like I'll be stuck in the same place forever.Now, please don't feel pity for me, I don't want nor need that, it's not helpful, but only makes me feel even worse.But look on the bright side - I'll have more time to get back into art. hahahah //facewallIt was nice while it lasted.

Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong.

About writingIn honor of NaNoWriMo I wanted to do at least one journal about writing this month, even though I'm no expert.Writing is everywhereI feel like writing is one of the most unseen and perhaps even most under appreciated forms of art these days. Writing is virtually everywhere, yet it's very much overlooked. People tend to think about writing as just the stuff you read in books, but what about blogs and journals? What about your favorite game, movie, show, or anime? What about your favorite comic? Would you even like your favorite character that much if it didn't come with that backstory that made you feel so much for it? Yes, that's writing. All of it.As for my own experience; I've always been fascinated by storytelling. I could watch and read anything, as long as it had a good plot and characters I could care about. I think the true skill of a writer is to make (nearly) everything
