DD and Upcoming Contest

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 6, 2012, 12:06 PM
 


daily deviation and upcoming contest

A bit late thank you goes to The-Average-Alex for suggesting and Moonbeam13 for featuring my "Black Swan" piece. Its my 4th DD and I am really honored. Thank you goes to deviantArt`s FB page as well for featuring the work over there as well. Feedback was amazing. :heart:






Upcoming Contest

I am planning on hosting a new contest. Inspired by the great feedback on my interpretation of Black Swan movie piece I decided it would be a good idea to host a contest where you would have to create an artwork based on a movie, song, video game etc. As long as its  not a typical fan art but it incorporates your own vision.

I have a nice amount of prizes to donate myself, but I do need a help from a community. So if you would like to donate anyting please drop me a note, it would be appreciated.

Thank you!



           


Need help with some php files for website

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 8, 2012, 12:51 AM
 


Okay, like the title says, I need some urgent help with some php files for my new website design.
The design is purchased from themeforest, for some reason, its missing few php files required for contact form to work properly. Few other things as well. And since my skills are quite poor when it comes to any kind of coding I need help.  Willing to pay.

Anyone that is able to help, please note me!  :heart:

Issues with viewing deviations

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 29, 2011, 6:41 AM



Website | Facebook | Prints | Google + | Twitter | MySpace | Delicious | f.a.q.

DevArt has been acting weird for me, while the page itself loads fine I cannot view any thumbs or user avatars, deviation takes forever to load, notes as well.  I have a lot of unread notes but when trying to open one I usually get error message, two "XX" or nothing at all. Comments I can acess, but replying to them and waiting to "send" the reply is also taking forever. I checked the forums as well as posted my own topic but no help so far, tho I would like to thank all the people that came up with all the ideas of what I could do to fix it. Oh well, I have no other option but to wait a day or two and hope it would fix itself. If not, im sending a ticket.

Special Commission offer and info

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 16, 2011, 10:21 AM




...and all for a good cause as well. All money gained from commissions in this month will go to my friend Jay who is having some sight problems due to his diabetes. Exam from a specialist as well as possible surgery will be needed and all earnings will go directly to his family.
Was requested of me, to not reveal more info to the public, family was against me bothering with this in the first place, but I really wanted to help. For more info you are free to note me.



:pointr: COMMISSION INFO:
Full photomanipulation with painted elements. Examples: Well most of my gallery ;)
Turn around time: 1 day (24 hours) in case of no special requests (meaning, if you want me to change anything)
Price: 20$
Payment is done after you see the finished piece. Work will be sent to you in small resoultion with a watermark on it. After you are satisfied with the work, payment will be requested before sending the full resolution image.

What I need from you: Photo that you would like me to manipulate. Does not have to be super high quality, anything decent in size and not blurry much should do.
If you dont have a photo, but you would like for me to make a work for you based on a specific theme, that is ok too, just contact me and provide as much as details as possible.


For more info please note me. Thank you.

Practicing,opinions needed & Collab

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 1, 2011, 11:10 AM




Bare with me. I will be uploading some sketches, painted portraits, full body charachters etc. for the next few days, since I am really working hard to impove my digital drawing/painting skills. I always submitted only my personal favs to my deviantArt but I hope you wont mind if you see more of the "not so great/finished/glowy" stuff lol, at least for the rest of the week.

So far you got...
Black Swan by AF-studios
And I would really really appreciate your honest opinion on should I keep drawing or just stick to my manips and mixed media ^^ (that does not mean I will stop making manips if I decide to draw more)


On other news...

New work is coming up soon, working on it atm as well as on some other projects (but will remain silent atm, much new stuff up ahead :excited:) So new photomanip/mixed media will be up later today.


MAKE SURE TO CHECK COLLAB BETWEEN CLAUDIA Phatpuppyart-Studios and me!
Work came out wonderful and she uploaded it allready so make sure you check it out...



All for now :hug:

Thank you, Facebook and about Illuminated

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 14, 2011, 11:22 AM




To everyone that missed my last jounral and wondering what happened (why I was away for so long) please read - freaky665.deviantart.com/journ…


I would like to start off with thanking everyone who commented on my last entry. Your support means world to me :heart: I will update this from now on more frequently I promise :
)

I opened a facebook account specially for my art, where I will post info on what am I working on as well as some unpublished works from time to time, so if you are interested add me on FACEBOOK
Random friend will recieve a month subscription to dA from me tomorrow aswell :heart:

Now about my "Illuminated" work
illuminated by AF-studios

I received tons of comments as well as notes, even e-mails with people concerned about its connection to Illuminati, or organization of Satanist. Due to image title, one hand covering the models eye and the overall mood of the image, I can understand if someone sees the connection. But I can asure you, that the title, concept and work itself has nothing to do with the Illuminati, but it is more connected to the song by Hurts and the fact that I liked the stock photo and wanted so do something with it. Just wanted to make that clear.

All from me for now
:heart:
Have a great weekend!

Few Words

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 12, 2011, 10:48 AM






Hi all,

Would like to keep this as short as possible to save you the trouble of reading a lot of stuff.
Its been a while (a lot, really) , a lot happened too, personal life, work , health, family, its been hard and its been rough. I hurt some of the people in this whole "recovery" process, I could not deal with things at all and I am really ashamed of myself now when looking back of what has happened. Some of are familar with the story, and you know about what I am talking about. Now, after everything, I can only say that I am truly truly sorry and that I would do my best to make things right, sounds like a cliche, I know, but I do mean it. I miss art, I miss the community and feedback.. I cannot say that some things here didnt bugged me from time to time, but for a long time deviantArt was my home on the web and I made a nice number of good friends without even meeting them in person...so what I am saying here, is that I will do my best to become active member here again and see how it would go. Support from at least few of you would mean a world to me. I just recently started checking everything, but to everyone that send me e-mails with such kind words of support and encouragment, thank you so so much. You had faith in me and you are the reason I want to continue sharing art with others. My biggest thank you goes to Cladia (phatpuppy), who is honestly one of the kindest,forgiving persons I met and I am truly lucky to know someone like her. I am also happy to inform that me and her will be working on something new together really soon. Thank you for everything :kiss: So...it has been hard, but I learned a lot too.

I cannot promise any new art in the next few days, I honestly havent worked on anything in months, and lost my saved resources and everything. So I need to restock first :)

I know I have a lot to do around here, and lot of things to sort out. I have no right to ask, but just please bear with me for a few days, just till I get on my feet again.

(Questions or comments below please, or mail me on afagarazzi@gmail.com with anything you wanna know, I am swamped here. You can also add me on  Facebook and send all your inquires there)

Much love :heart:
Would love to hear how have you all been.

ExploreDigital - opinions please

Journal Entry: Thu May 27, 2010, 5:55 PM




Finally time to focus on a project I wanted to start a long time ago but never had the opportunity.

ExploreDigital is an upcoming webzine that focuses on promoting inspiring digital artists within the community. Group will also have Monthly Features in a form of deviantArt news articles. It will be closely connected to Digital-Art-Club because that will be our main surce for finding great art and artists,especially in the first few months until the group gains a nice amount of members and watchers. The purpose of the group,is to let its memebrs suggest favourites that will be organized into categories,and that will be automatically approved. The best works will be choosed from the favorites and added to the group gallery and at the end of the moth featured in the Monthly Feature article,some in webzine too. The first webzine that will be published and available for download would be announced for June 30,and in case I speed up I might do first mothly features on May 31.
I already have an idea on how everything should look,about sections in the zine and all. Just wondering what do you think about the idea :)

Please do not send me offers to help as a moderator or anything yet,because I would like to sort everything out first. Be sure that I will need help when all this starts.

I might start a dontaion poll to make it a super group in case you guys like the idea. Will see :)
/Edit:/ Poll started. You can find it under journal on my profile page. :thanks:

Just give me your opinions :heart: :blowkiss:

Back online and explanation

Journal Entry: Sun May 23, 2010, 12:57 PM


Hi all :wave: :hug:

Missed you all so much. Let me start with apologizing to all of you about all the Photomanipulation Kit mess,I wish I was able to explain everything in time and avoid the whole drama. I completely understand all your comments,I know you were all worried and wondering where the heck I am. I would like to thank many of you,especially my dear phatpuppy for support and udating everyone on my situation in her journal when I was not able to,thank you dear. I had some serious health issues,I  avoid talking about it,since I try really hard to put that behind me.It is heart related,I had similar problems before,but never like this.Also I had to get new notebook,since the last one was really messed up. Those who ordered the Kit,last week I sent it to all the adresses from the list,with an explanation and an apology,in case I missed anyone,please note me!
I recieved the most offensive comments and e-mails,I understand your anger as well. I just wanted to let you know,that I would never ever be capable of scamming anyone,or risk everything I achieved during the last few years for a few sold tutorialsa,and anyone who know me can confirm you this.

Once again I would like to thank all of you,I recieved a bunch of "Get well" e-mails after I sent the packs and you have no idea how much that meant to me.
I promise I will update you more soon,and I will try to submit some art in the next few days,after I clean up my message centre a bit ;)

Like said,in case I missed anyone please note me. Now I would like to know how have you all been? :heart:

Btw I need to learn what these badges are lol :D I missed a lot.

Back after 2 months!

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 25, 2010, 8:06 PM


Heeey sweeties,how have you been? Missed me? ;) :hug:

Its been 2 months since my last entry and my last deviation,I havent logged in here for more than a month. I am swamped with messages and deviations atm,but I dont complain,I am just so glad to be back.
I really cant believe that I completely neglected art for 2 whole months. So many things,good and bad,happened to me in just few weeks that its hard for me to believe what I have been trough now when I look back. January was terrible,exames,death in family,...what can I say :| February was (still is) a completely different story,but again,I was busy with school and million other things. Not the mention the issues with new system and my pretty new shiny tablet that is working like a charm now,luckily.
Anyway,I am back,and I look forward going trough all your deviations,messages,notes... :D
I am aware that there are some important things I need to do around here,like finally announce the winners and handle some stuff with the groups,but I would appreciate if you could understand the situation I am in and give me just a day or two to clean up messages first,I am swamped already,so no new content or announcements until I catch up.
I would like to thank everyone for their support,the Digital-Art-Club admins that kept the group running,to all my friends here,and everyone who mailed me or contacted me asking where the heck I am :)

Love you all :heart: :hug:

Happy Holidays | News

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 24, 2009, 7:52 PM


Happy Holidays everyone! :santa:
Best wishes to you all.

I am catching up here. Was away for a certain period of time due to being extremely busy with all the deadlines I had to respect. This job is great,but sometimes quite energy consuming.
Therefore I decided to take a break from the commissions for a while,so that I can focus on more personal art again.
Anyway in the meantime I had the pleasure of working with a nice amount of brilliant photographers and creative individuals and I came up with a large number of artwork that I want to show to you all. I am not allowed to post all of them,since some are made for special projects and client wishes to keep them unseen until the project is released itself.
But not to worry,there are plenty of works laying around :)And will start submitting them after I catch up with your creations,since I have a lot of works to check out,and I am really looking forward to it.

Also,the new group system is really amazing. I send a request to dA to convert my own club Digital-Art-Club to a group,and cant wait to see how that will work.

On other news. YOu are all probably wondering when I will announce the winners of the Twisted Fairytales contest. Well,I am trying to speed things up as much as possible but I am still waiting on the results from one judge. Winners will be announced asap!
Also,I would like to thank you all for so many wonderful contest ideas you have shared in my last journal entry.I think I have a perfect theme for the next contest,as well as many more ahead. :hug:

That would be all for now,features coming tomorrow as well as some other news.
Love you all :heart: :rudolph:

It might take a while to load if you have low speed. Low bandwidth version coming soon tho.

On other news,I am booked solid for the rest of the month.Have many deadlines to respect and I hardly find time for anything else. Not a bad thing,but trust me,some of those clients are really really demanding. But on the brighter side,I do what I love and I work with some amazing photographers with some amazing creative shots :)
