|Full view is a must! :]|
|I know my gallery is massive. But there is something for everyone!! I have Photography- Macro, Portraits to Vintage Cars, Jewelry/Other Crafts then to drawings and paintings. As an artist, I am scattered everywhere. Through out several mediums at one time. Jumping from one to another, it works for me so I go with the flow <3 |
First off, I answer all comments, watches & notes. But favorites, I just cannot thank people for them anymore, I get way too many on a daily basis. I appreciate every single one though!!!
What kind of camera do you use?
A SONY DSLR - A390 with 18-55mm lens, also a Kodak Easyshare.
No macro lens, yet. It's not about the camera, it's about the person using it. Two people can own the same camera but yet they get different results.
What programs do you use?
I never shop my fuckin work. I never use photoshop. I don't even own it. Instead I use Photoscape, It's simple and does all that I require. Such as sharpening, lovely frames, etc. If it's what you like to use, wonderful :] It's just not program I need nor use.
How long have you been doing photography?
10yrs now. I just do what I like and I follow that instinct. I am very thankful for the experience I do have. Practice, patience and passion really are the keys to it really, to everything actually.
Have you had any schooling?
No, I am completely self taught, in all the mediums I use.
How many tattoos do you have?
I really don't know anymore, once I started connecting them to each other I have lost count. Instead of small tattoos everywhere, I have full pieces with more on the way.
Can I use your photo(s) as a reference for a drawing/painting?
Yes! And you don't need to ask me. All I ask & expect is to
Get a link to your work, because I would love to see it.
How do you make your fake blood?
Since I make it myself, I do not share my recipe. It was hard
Work getting the right look, I will not give it out for free. I decided to share this very tastey recipe. Go here to see & read: fav.me/d4fo74q
Why do you put writing/watermark on your images?
Because I have had my work stolen & claimed as another persons work and also I have seen my work on other sites, without my permission. Its my work and I want to protect it the best I can. Art theft is very easy when you put it on the internet. But I like that my work is shared a lot. It means that outside dA my work is liked. Watermark through my images are for Internet purposes only!
|I have been an artist since the day I was born.|
My work goes where my mood takes me, so I often
Jump from medium to medium… from ink to photo,
To beads, painting to sewing, everything is an interest.
I’m extremely passionate, organized & my visions are clear.
I listen to my heart, my purpose in life is to create and at
The end of the day I do it all for myself. Because it makes
Me happy and it’s my therapy in a world that is fuckin crazy.
I am completely and 100% self taught. Years of practice & love. I am not a professional by normal standards even though my friends and family will say otherwise. All I have are years of experience under my belt, so most of the time I know what I am doing. I know what I can do and I know what I can’t do. Plus, I know My style and I am confident within it that I don’t feel the need to prove myself or my catalogue of work to anyone. I am still learning New things every day, so I don’t think I am better then anyone.
So far I think I am doing pretty good for myself. I’ve worked on a few low key college films & commercials and then Hostel Part 3. Now I have some lovely contacts in movies and music, which is a plus. Even though I don’t do a lot of make-up anymore, it’s still a passion. I haven’t forgotten it completely, it’s what got my foot in the door. I have been selling my Photography & Other/All artwork for 2yrs now. It’s a very freeing thing to be able to sell what makes my heart beat. And others love it enough to buy it, I'm thankful!
I never wanted to be an artist, I always just was one.
Even though my name on dA is GrotesqueDarling13, this is not my business name. I never changed it because this is who I am known as on the net, people know it and can google it easy to find my work. My business name for my Photography is Yes Darling Photographyİ and the name I sell all my other Artwork by is GrotesqueDarling13 or GD13.
I consider myself to be close to professional standards with mostly all the mediums I work in/with because of all the experience I have had on my own and in the business for companies and paying customers. I have explored every inch, absorbing and learning, getting better over time. I take my work seriously but I know how to have fun, whatever the subject may be. It's way more then a love or a passion, it's who I am, it's a need for my internal happiness.
I have a lot of pride & respect for my own work because I know where I started and the long journey I took to be where I am today. It wasn't easy by any means. But the past 8yrs has all been worth it. Getting as much practice & experience as possible is very important. Most of my time goes to my Photography and other Artwork. I'm an Artist by birth, not choice. It flows out from me naturally and at the end of the day I do it for myself, not to make money off of it. If that's your only reason for starting, Photography isn't for you. I have made money from my Photography before, from friends, strangers, companies, writers, etc. But even if I didn't, I'd still capture this world around me. It keeps me content, I like to capture e v e r y t h i n g.
|You are all very welcome for the faves & comments!! I love to support my fellow artists and their work. It helps us to grow. Feedback is very important!!!|
But don't go and ruin it by...
BEGGING me to go like your facebook. I will like it if I actually like your work. I won't like it just because you are on my profile begging me to. I find this to be rude after all I did was FAVE a single goddamn piece. Please do not be that way. Accept the reality of my "No, thank you" and move on.
I don't like being spammed about liking peoples facebooks. This is deviantART and all people seem to care about is facebook. I don't prefer facebook over dA. I have a facebook, a business one and a personal one and they are not my life. I have a growing business without the help of facebook. So, if facebook is your thing to the point you spam people to like your page, with hollow meaningless likes because you yourself had to tell them to like it, then go you. Keep it to yourself is all I am asking.
