Something for everyone..

Hi everyone!

Its been ages since i posted anything on my journal.Work is good but keeps it me really busy and the 4 hour daily travels saps me of all energy :(As luck would have it I finally got a back to back 4 day off so i thought id pop in and say hi XD

Recently i've been trying to work on Adobe illustrator(damn hard after 6 years of photo shopping i tell you!) and have been foraging for good vectors to use for some poster work i have to do(for work again..sad.. i know).Free vectors are hard to find and since i came across some incredible stuff on DA and outside it i thought i'd share it with you lot coz resources are something you can NEVER have enough of :nod:

Another thing id like to address here is ...asking for points!People.. stop doing it!My entire profile is filled with requests...every single day i come here someone is asking me for not the Sultan of Brunei you know!And while i hate turning down peoples requests i honestly have no more points to give anyone!Sorry if it sounds rude but i have to draw the line somewhere :(

Anyways,here are the resources i collected.
Have fun using them,

I know a lot of you doubted whether i'll actually go ahead and put the majority of my deviations in storage...hell so was i!
But i hardened my heart and did it today..:tears:

So arrivederci,sayonara,au revoir and ciao!

Thanks for loving these artworks of mine and for the many :+fav:s and lovely comments everyone left me!I hope you'll find it in your heart to like my other works as much as you did these...:please:

If you haven't gone ahead and saved these to your system and want to use them as wallpapers or on forums leave me a note.

Have a lovely weekend

First week at work was exhausting and awesome at the same time.Exhausting not because of the workload(which is fairly meager at this time) but because of the travelling!i have to take 2 trains and a bus to get there so thats 2 hours to get to work and another 2 to get back home..phew!No energy left to do anything but come home,eat dinner and snooze :yawn:
So you'll be seeing very few,if any,manips from me since they need a lot of free time that i can't afford any more..:(
When  i find more time(next weekend maybe) i'll put my deviations in storage like i promised but until then they're out there to grab :love:
As for the icon contest that nobody is interested in,I've lost interest too so its off for now.what can i say?apparently people don't want premium membership...

Anyways hope you have nice a weekend while i finish my sleep quota :)

Sending My Love by brandrificus

Happy Dance Time:
:w00t:So i cleared the interview for the job/internship and start working monday!yayyyyyy!It doesn't pay but  i hadn't expected it harm no foul.oh..shit..background..right
As you know by now I'm applying for PhD to the US.Since ive been jobless so far i need work experience..badly!not only for my application but for the sake of sanity!Im losing it sitting at home for the last 6months!I came to know of a scientist who needed  trainees for upto 6months and so i went for an interview which went quite well if i do say so myself. But then i didn't hear from him for like 2 weeks...and just when i gave up all hope..tada!
So im in a chipper mood acceptance from a university would be icing on the cake but you can't always have it all!

Anyway,my card finally started working and i bought membership!:dance: AND points= Be warned Deviants theres some loveeee coming your way!:dalove:

QUESTION: Doesn't ANYONE want membership out there???If you do.. go read THIS!

Important Notice:

Since the incidence at :icondavids-place: Ive been plagued by the dilemma of keeping all my copyrighted TV art on :devart: and ive come to the conclusion that im putting it in storage.It isn't worth it to wait for someone to tell you off for something you're aware of and clearly neglecting to comply with.Im now branching off into providing authentic resources and making photo-manipulations with actual stock.Im not doing this because im scared of the consequences of discovery but because i agree with DA on this one..would you want someone to make stuff from your art?i doubt it..anyways for those who want to use my work on forums etc ill be leaving it on for a week from today after which it all goes into storage.I might transfer it to my LiveJournal account later but i honestly cant say when ill get the time..

Anyhoo...Features today are some nifty things for members with premium membership.Might be useful for someone who recently went from ~ to *(read :iconel-i-or:)

Happy Valentines Day Contest

Mon Feb 14, 2011, 11:32 AM
Just wanted to shout a big happy valentines day to all you lovely people!Hope you have a very special day with your loved ones.:love:

And to celebrate Im not only extending my own subscription but also offering one to anyone who can make me an icon for DA use.
Why can't I make myself an icon you ask > Because im moving away from TV show blends and collages into photomanipulation,since use of said "blends" are against DA policy.I have no skill with making animation or drawings and therefore came up with the brilliant idea to give a 3 month subscription for an awesome icon :D.

The rules are simple.
:bulletpink:Icon should be 100x100 and comply with DA policy
:bulletpink:Must contain a celtic knot..there are plenty so don't get stuck on triquetras(which are cool btw)!
:bulletpink:Id love to see an element that is magical-glow,sparkles..whatever!
:bulletpink:A faerie or elf or magical creature-if it fits!Its not necessary to include these elements because theres only so much that fits into a 100x100 icon! but be imaginatve and go celtic   because i love magic!
:bulletpink: Can be still or animated or hand drawn..i'm really sorry but no anime...its not my thing...apart from this i have no what you do best :D

Send me a note if you're interested or have any doubts...Ill give a weeks time to all those who choose to participate :)Even if i don't pick your work you'll surely get a llama from me :hug:

Spread the love!

Another day checking my FB profile when i see a message(not friends request) from some random cheap guy,asking me to be friends with him.When i declined politely saying im a private person and don't add strangers,he asked me to privatize with him?...eugh!and then when i told him off for using cheesy lines the jerk wrote back saying stuff that is just not worth repeating.. it is SO vile!FYI it was sexually explicit which makes me :sick:
I reported and blocked him of course and changed my privacy settings but it ruined my mood!damn!

Anyway,I'd really like to thank :iconlokiev: for all his help with my first photomanipulation :) The edited version is here…

Here are this week's features:

Please help out a fellow artist who is in dire need of monetary help.She has a lot on her plate and very little help.Donation of points or even a feature on your journal could really help her out.
Do your good deed for the day and read more about it here

Also have a look at some wonderful graphite works by lovely artists...

Just saw Kristen Stewart's latest Vogue interview and photoshoot.Its crazy how her open mouth has YET AGAIN ruined beautiful photographs!I have nothing against her personally and shes really pretty and a good actress to boot especially in non-twilight movies(see Speak ) but honestly every single time I see that open mouth it ANNOYS ME!

Who agrees with me?

PS: Despite the open mouth this picture is gorgeous...

Random Rants 1:Grad School Applications

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 5, 2011, 7:35 PM

Im sorry but im going to rant now...A LOT.
You would think applying to a university is a matter of a few days..maybe weeks.nayyyy it takes MONTHS!
stupid stupid stooopid universities in the US need 10 billion things from a student and its not like they mention it on their front page...ohhhh no...that would be too easy.Noooo... they hide it!
They hide it amongst all the other garbage so that each time you go to confirm your checklist you find a new item!
For example,this one university(i wont name names..)asks you to write a single statement of purpose but when i went to apply online they split that 1 SOP into 4 sub headings so that I have to rethink the whole thing again for the 100th time!
And with my deadlines soon approaching Im NOT finding it funny!It almost makes me not want to apply!

phew...done ranting.
So whats your story?
