Joanna's contest, silly questions, and a thankyou

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 16, 2015, 2:22 AM

The first thing you need to know is that :iconjoannamoory: is having a contest, and the prizes are pretty cool!
Go draw something. She has good nature photo references and it will do you good to stop copying shitty anime for a bit :P
Reference Contest II Hi! :wave:
I'm holding a contest; a sequel to my previous 'Reference contest'.
There will be three winners + a voters' choice, so overall 4 winners.
:bulletpink: You have to use atleast 2 of my photos as a reference for a traditional art work (drawing or a painting)
(To make it clear: Digital art is not allowed.)
:bulletpink: In addition it is okay to use other references, too.
:bulletpink: The work doesn't need to be new, but it can't have participated to the previous 'Reference contest'.
:bulletpink: You can have 2 entries in the contest.
:bulletpink: Use your imagination!
:bulletpink: You need to mention my contest in your artist's comments. Preferably add a link, too.
:bulletpink: Mention which references you have used.
:bulletpink: Participa

And here's a thing :iconagaave: was doing so i need to pass it on :D

If you leave a little comment down there, and you're someone i know to any extent, I will tell you:
  1. What animal/creature you remind me of.
  2. What color I think fits you.
  3. How I feel about you.
  4. Insult you.
  5. My favorite artwork of yours.
  6. What season you remind me of.
  7. Tell you what food you smell like in my head.
  8. Think of a random nickname for you.
  9. What element you remind me of.
  10. I'll command you to put this in your journal without using the words 'tag' or 'dare' or 'order'

And last, i'd like to thank the nice people who added me to their watch recently, and who commented, and faved. Don't always have time to reply to every comment, but hey, you'd rather have me making art and not blabbing anyway, right? ;) So here's a "blanket-thankyou".
Be excellent to each other and party on dudes.

Deviantartist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 4:27 AM

Well, i'm doing this cause I want a badge, and because Sylwia said so.

  • How long have you been on DeviantArt?

10 years or so? I came here cause Elfwood started sucking giant balls.

  • What does your username mean?

A female Troll. It's my username in many websites. When I started using the internet everything was generic-as-shit fairies and unicorns. I thought, bugger that, i'll be something with a personality. And with teeth.
In retrospect, it has drawbacks because its associated with a crowd of specimens who, failing to get laid, insults people over the internet, but i regret nothing.

  • Describe yourself in three words

Whats For Dessert?

  • Are you left or right handed?

So right-handed I can't use nailpolish...

  • What was your first deviation?

Technically, drawing on the wall with mom's lipstick in 1989 or so.
On this website, it was that one
 TrollGirl by TrollGirl

  • What is your favourite type of art to create?

That's a toughie. Probably watercolors.

  • If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Virtuoso electric guitar.  Like Herman Li :P

  • What was your first favourite?

Boulevard of Broken Dreams by psychophuk

  • What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Traditional fantasy

  • Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Probably :iconpuimun: 

  • If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

Obviously :iconlucieon: cause she's sort of my best friend and it can be fun to hang out irl more often than once in 7 years :D
But since a lot of my real life friends originated on DA, i'd love to meet any of them. Who's up for ice-cream? 

  • How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Making me try new mediums, new styles, teaching me stuff, granting me inspiration.  It's super-useful in here, smut and entitled american kids aside.

  • What are your preferred tools to create art?

White Nights watercolors combine with pebeo watercolor inks, and my antique wacom :D

  • What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

I don't need a place for that. Just my awesome desk. 
Sketching in classrooms is good though. Instead of listening to lecturers.

  • What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

I'm not sure. Getting DDs is great. Getting on the front page as well. I like to get a chance to blab about art with an artist I appreciate. But no specific memory.

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 14, 2015, 1:24 PM

Well, its time to put something new in this journal
I was tagged by :iconprojectanimation:

-Each person who got tagged MUST share at least 13 random things about themselves
-Answer my questions in your own journal entry, not in the comments of this one. 
-Tag 13 people
-Ask 13 questions
-Tagbacks are allowed! 
-You must complete this journal within a week
-Cussing is allowed
-Be creative with the title

13 Random Or Weird Things About Me: 

1. My original name, in a very literal translation, means "Christmas Butcher". How hardcore is that?
2. I met my two bffs, :iconlucieon: & :iconshirelg: here on DA
3. I don't want children, babies disgust me, the whole idea seems enormously unappealing. People find it weird. I don't.
4. I can make a great mushroom and onion pie.
5. I'm completely indifferent to spiders, snakes, rats, cockroaches, and other suchlike stuff that makes most of the XX chromosome crowd squeal. 
6. I'm a big fan of tattoos, and a fair number of people sport my designs, but i have none, because i'm very picky :P
7. My longest relationship lasted 7 years, with a male. A fairly pointless endeavor, though amusing in its own way.
8. I've never been drunk.
9. I'm trying to learn to use photoshop for painting, but chronically regress to paint tool sai
10.I outgrew social anxiety and ended up with social despair. Now i'm not afraid to talk to anyone, but stopped seeing the point. Hummies are dumb.
11.I like selling at conventions and always, always end up sunburnt :D
12. My favorite movie is Jim Hansen's Labyrinth
13.I'm Batman.

:iconprojectanimation:'s questions:

1. Who is your favourite Disney character? 
Hands down, its Stitch of Lilo&Stitch. Glorious misfittery.

2. If you could live in any time period, what, where, and why would you? 
I'd probably stick to this one, because i love fast internet and don't fancy rabid religiocity, lack of plumbing, or syphilis.  But if i have to pick something else, the seventies have killer fashion and music.

3. Do you like to be outside? What do you like to do: swim, garden, etc? 
I generally prefer the inside. I burn like a vampire in a church. Also the outside in the middle east is dusty and not particularly delightful as to my taste. Ask me again when i move somewhere else ;)

4. Would you be a ballet dancer or a hip-hop dancer and why? 
Hip hop dancer. Vigorous natural movements, power, energy. Ballet dancers look like wind up dolls to me, rigid and controlled. Eek..

5. Are you a Cartoon Network person, or a Nickelodeon person? I'm talking about old CN and Nick, not the new stuff. Like 80's and 90's. 
Those questions are so... american. I don't use a television now, and didnt really have one earlier in life either. The only american cartoons i watched are Avatar and Adventure time.

6. What is the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you? If you don't want to talk about it, you don't have to. :iggle: 
When i was in 3rd grade and we were jumping rope at phys ed lesson, my trousers fell down.

7. How was your high school experience? Good? Bad? Ugly? 
Awful, with some laughs here and there.

8. What is your favourite book genre? You can pick more than one! 
Fantasy and alternate history

9. Do you like chicken tenders or lapin a la cocotte? 
That's... american terms again? I have no idea. I prefer  lasagna. Like Garfield.

10. How do you feel about social media's ideals on basically everything? 
Indifferent verging on condescending? I fail to understand why people make a fuss of them. Of course, most people fail to think for themselves... but this brings me to sad thoughts about the necessity of population culling. We're better off without people feeble-minded enough to be affected by "social media's ideals"...
11. What would your patronus be? :Gryffindork: 
A crow maybe. I'm not sure.

12. Would you rather be blind or deaf and why? 
Deaf. With the enormous regret of giving up music... my livelihood and main stimulations are still visual.
13. If you could be sucked into any book and be a character (yourself), what would it be? What role would you play? Reading 
Well,  i'd say i want to be someone like Tiffany Aching, but i'm reasonably likely to end up being someone like Bellatrix Black.

My questions are:
1. You can grow a tail. What sort of tail are you going to grow?
2. Killing one person, getting away with no consequences - whom do you kill and why?
3. Which location in the world you'd love to visit?
4. You have found Jesus. He's an alright dude, but not overly impressive. How do you continue on with your life?
5. In which videogame you'd like to land and play the role of main character?
6. What's your favorite thing to eat?
7. What do you do when you're sad?
8. What scares you the most?
9. Do you enjoy using DA or facebook more? Why?
10. What's your purpose in life?
11. What is your legal addiction?
12. When was your heart broken last?
13.Where's Waldo?

I tag: 

Also, i'd like to share with you an article that managed to simultaneously inspire and depress me a lot :D…
See what you make of it

Hello little minions!

Some business news first. For those of you who for strange and unfathomable reason do not use Paypal, I've enabled a commission widget on my page, check it out.
Secondly, this is my new Redbubble store!… :bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:
I'll be gradually adding new designs to it. If there's something you want, feel free to request it.

On the artsy front, I'm practicing sculpting critters, and trying to improve my skill with acrylics. I have paint splashes in the weirdest places of my body. At least unlike oils, it washes off without needing to employ chemical warfare.
I'm trying to figure out painting with large tough brush strokes, or at least moreso than i usually do. It is a challenge not to 'lick up' paintings.

On this note, here's a little feature of a painter i discovered recently, and find his technique very admirable.
Blue Haired Girl by VampireHungerStrikeBubblegum and Caramel by VampireHungerStrike Sunbeam by VampireHungerStrike

Astronomer by VampireHungerStrike

Also I'm thinking of trying to run a little contest. Havent got much to offer aside from my drawings and some points, but it still might be fun. I just need to come up with an enjoyable theme. One thing i know, it won't be gorram OCs. Why is every second contest here about OCs? I've no idea.

Well, live long and prosper!

Hello little minions,

Guess i have to write a new journal entry. I'm pretty awful at remembering to refresh them.

I hope everyone had a great New Year celebration with their favorite video games/friends/family members and nobody had a particularly bad hangover :D

In the end of last year I had the good fortune to go and visit the Czech Republic, together with :iconshirelg: . It was beautiful, inspiring, and bitchingly cold.
We met :iconlucieon:, and she's real, but we don't have proof. Much like the case with Bigfoot, you know. But she gave me a fairy dragon plushie, so that puts her about as high on the scale of amazing imaginary friends as possible.
Visiting the Alfons Mucha Museum was truly one of my life's highlights. 

I'd appreciate if someone with experience on the topic could advice me - what is better for creating merchandise of my art - Society6 or Redbubble? Or maybe they're completely different entities and i need to use both?  Impart your wisdom :P

Since I happen to think new years resolutions are an overly americanized idea that doesn't usually seem to stick, i'll just tentatively try to get better and make more art.
[Are you afraid? No? You should be!]

So, tell me how you've been? Anything interesting or thought provoking? 

Happy 2015!

Extra Productive Trolly

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 20, 2014, 1:06 PM

I seem to be having an extra productive time. Expect a lot of spam. Spam spam spaaam.
On another hand, the situation isn't likely to last.

Meanwhile, i'm trying to expand my internet presence a bit.
I reanimated my cryogenically frozen Furaffinity account -…
And made a Tumblr -

As for the tumblr, i'm still chronically baffled as to what is it's point, but seems like people like using it. Oh well. I'll give you a choice where to be spammed by me :P

Ye Olde Update

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 15, 2014, 12:02 PM

Well, the convention I've mentioned in my previous journal went great. So great, in fact, that new designs i've prepared for it sold out completely and until I prepare more, I can't even share them with you because i was working frantically until the very last moment to have more stock, and didn't really have time to photograph. Funny how that goes.
But it really is kool stuff. You'd have to trust me until i'll have some photos for ya :P

On the other hand, now i have time to concentrate on the commission. Anyone else want in?

 A lovely group i'm following is planning on going super soon and we'd like more members. It's a really fun group to follow if you're into owls, like i am :)

Also,  I got it into my head recently that i should learn how to sew. I wonder if the notion will last until i can afford a sewing machine. Not very likely.

Features and Troll Awards

Journal Entry: Thu May 1, 2014, 6:47 AM

Since my previous journal has been up for too long, it's time to refresh it, by featuring some of the lovely people i got to do art trades with recently.

There's still trades in process going on, i guess they'll be featured later :)


And now for DA-rants.  Cause what is a journal without them? :D

First prize of the Troll Awards goes to an artist, a darn good one, who decided to run a contest about half a year ago. I love entering contests because they give me a sense of deadline and ideas to work on. Prizes are a nice bonus, but not the main thing. 
Only in this contest, i did want the main prize - a drawing by said artist, who, as i said, is very good and talented.
Well, i won the contest and was happy. She asked me what would i like her to draw, i replied, and settled to wait.
After half a year has passed, i asked via note if there's anything going on. My note was opened and ignored without as much as a "real life took my time, i can't give you a drawing, i'm sorry". Just ignored.  Guess i'll make my own drawing. And Golden Troll Ear for them.

Second prize goes to some soft-headed, and highly american manchild who at first bothered me for not subscribing for his amazingly sheltered point of view where every child gets a medal, there are no wrong opinions, and telling people off for being rude and dumb is unthinkable. I told him where to stuff all that, and  he disappeared for a bit, only to resurface and try to convince me to attack some person who i've never encountered before, but has rubbed said manchild wrong. 
Being soft-headed, he did not realize the irony of trying to wind me up against a complete stranger who's "wrong" in his opinion, while i know his opinion to be very, very ripe manure. Silver Troll Ear goes to him.


On a happier, and much more harmonious note, i'm so glad about Lacuna Coil and Sonata Arctica releasing new albums. Lacuna are brilliant  and no album of theirs ever disappointed me, i love them, they're the musical representation of my head :D
Sonata, however, have released 2 horrible, weird albums which were apparently them trying something, but to me it sounded like violence against cattle. The new album is great. It's 2004 again! ^_^

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 15, 2013, 1:35 PM

I've recently realized that there's 3 groups on DA that have my designs for their avatars. I think it's pretty cool! :) 

As i wrote in my previous journal, i decided to trade with some artists  whose work i find noteworthy. Some agreed, some didn't have the time, the most important thing is that no one e-yelled at me, so i'm content.  But as Murphy would have it, within a week of sending my trade offers, i ended up signing with a full time workplace and now completing all the trades will be extra challenging. I should've remembered how Murphy works and started the trade season much earlier :D

There was something i couldnt figure out about DA points. Maybe someone could answer the question... what's the condition of converting them to money - you need to earn them through the commission widget?

I hope you all have a very merry christmas with gifts and snowflakes, and without national emergencies. I don't know how Israel, where it hardly rains, managed to land into half a meter of snow...but it did.  Lucky me for living in a coastal city where the worst thing was hail and slush :D

Printing, freakspotting, and trades

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 1, 2013, 1:21 PM

I have good news! I've found a nice place to make prints at, and is actually not far from where i live, for a change.
And why am i writing it here? Because now you're welcome to request any painting of mine you like to be made into a big shiny print which i will put on Etsy, and you can get to grace your wall!
Unless the original painting is too small, but i don't have much of those. So c'mon, tell me how can i prettify your dens.
DA provides me with decent anthropologic entertainment recently. It included two fine specimens. One seemed to have written himself a bot script which enables his account to stalk multiple DA members multiple times a day. When i asked him why does he do that, he informed me that i ought to be thankful for the pageviews, and that he does it so i'll talk to him. Some little puppy definitely hasn't been socialized properly...what with trying to stalk everyone at the same time and putting up a terrifying picture of himself in undies...mmyeah.
Another specimen asked if he could "remix" a painting of mine. Since his "remixes" imply making a seizure-inducing fractal out of anything he lays hands on, i refused and pointed out that a lot of free stock can be used for experiments. As manchildren can't take any refusals, i've been washed by some incoherent gibberish which might've been about the manchild's grasp of "art", or about hot wings, hard to tell.
Truly people need to either breed less, or raise their spawn more attentively. Cause, what the flying fuck...
 Since i have time to paint recently, i've been wondering if it would be a good idea to ask some admirable artists around here for trades. Alas, it is rather obvious that most people whose work i'd love to have probably wouldn't love to have mine, so i'm fairly reluctant. Oh well.

These days i'm just going to interviews, experimenting with creative ways to spill ink over myself, and crafting stuff.
Some of the things i'd like to get done in the near future is a few of my favorite fanarts, attempt an abstract painting that doesnt look like toddler poop, game-y environment speedpaints, and advance in sketching practice of animals and nudes.
Cheers to :iconbnspyrd::iconsooper-deviant::iconmomotte2stocks: for being lovely practice targets (:

Hail Imclod, art thief, and a convention

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 21, 2013, 8:31 AM

:iconimclod: found out how can i prevent DA from breaking all my uploads. Therefore, he's featured:

me, myself and I by imclod  Lene - the digital experiment by imclod  Tonttulakki by imclod  Burning butterflies by imclod  Kvaken by imclod

Look at the realism. Look at it!


Recently a rather stupid art thief has been brought to my attention by one of the groups i take part in. The thief primarily operated on Facebook where copyright protection is non-existent - so cropping out signatures and not crediting artists was very easy for him. Now the thief moved to deviantart, and is keeping very busy stealing, defacing, and denying accusations rudely and loudly, but without awareness of things like grammar or punctuation.
You can observe the prancing dimwit here: fantasy-fellowship.deviantart.… but be warned that it's not a pleasant read, and the atrocities committed against English will make you cringe.
The thief is :iconstormrider2210:/:iconjaynehunter: - he holds at least 2 accounts but there might be more. As you can see his artistic skills are limited to stealing paintings and photos and adding a painfully ugly bunch of frames and effects.
You can see this…
defaced by the thief:…
Check whether he's stolen anything of yours, and report him. Don't bother talking to him though, the assholery is absolute.


Tomorrow starts the biggest convention of the year, i'm excited! I hope to sell well and make new friends. It's going to be 3 days of pretty hard work, even while being enjoyable, and the weather can't decide between heat or rainfall, so.. it's going to be interesting!

There went nothing, a thank you, and a hypocricy

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 18, 2013, 11:17 AM

Well, as the prophecy prophecized, DA decided my inability to upload doesn't exist, and there's nothing they can tell me that can rectify it. I guess for now i'll just have to pull a clumsy and retarded trick of downloading my own artwork from my own facebook page so i can put them here. I guess facebook's black magic does something to the files so DA accepts them, unlike files from my computer. Burn the witch. It doesn't weigh the same as a duck.


I'd like to thank :icontheseventhstorm: for suggesting, and :iconastralseed: for accepting my painting for a DD. It was a fun one to get.


Normally notable pop culture events reach my rapunzel tower with a 2 month to 5 year delay, due to a fortunate lack of television and radio around me, but occasionally the internet gets very loud about them, so i go and see what's up. This time the loudness is over a singer deciding to get naked in a video. I went to see the video and hear the song. The song is lovely if you like pop music [i do] and the video is pretty damn beautiful. I'd kill several people to look like that. Ah, faulty genes..'s alright for Boticelli's Venus to be naked, it's alright for Michaelangelo's David to be naked, but it's not alright for Miley's Miley to be naked?
And that's because brainwashed quasipuritans wish to keep that woman a child forever, and her adulthood doesn't suit them after they made her an idol for their own innocent babies, and now are afraid their babies will realize growing up is an option? A culture that vilifies a woman for not remaining a child forever is sickening. For shame, christianity, for shame. And all the mooing about what kind of an example she sets to your children, well why the hell you raise your children in a way that gives them the idea a pop star should be their example to start with.

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 14, 2013, 5:25 PM

Edit: I managed to upload something. Now, will i be able to recreate that? So far, no luck.

Deviantart seems to be intent on playing a dirty trick on me.
A while ago i suddenly started getting errors while trying to upload artworks, and couldn't upload anything. From any browser, on both computers we have at home.  My files are ordinary jpgs, usually no larger than 5 mb, saved in photoshop cs3.
I submitted an error ticket and after some mailing back and forth i was informed that the problem has been "resolved", since the moderator haven't had a problem in uploading the files.
Nothing has been resolved in the slightest, but i found a way around the problem by saving the jpgs from a different art software.
Well, today that stopped working either.
I submitted another ticket, but after the dazzling success of the previous one, i doubt the results.
Although i'm not a great fan of drama llaming and "OMG i'm leaving DA *gasp* *faint*", i just doubt the point of staying at a site where the main function is blocked off for me. It would be a huge bummer to stop using the site since it's generally fun and i have a lot of friends here, but this problem, and the way it's been treated before, is infuriating.

Tag and stuff

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 8, 2013, 4:33 PM

:iconlosenko: tagged me, and i can't really refuse it cause her art kinda hypnotizes me.

1.    Do you have any stage fright (fear of public speaking), if so, how do you fight it?

I don't have a particular problem with public speaking. I can speak or act if necessary, but it don't find it interesting.
2.    If you are now offered as in the movie "The Matrix" instantly master any type of activity (kung fu, beading, etc.), what would you choose?
I'd become a brilliant programmer, what else.
3.    Do you suffer from a lack of erudition?
Sure i do. My own, and especially other people's lack of it.
4.    Which product in your diet you can not give up?
THE FLESH OF THE LIVINGGGGG. Yeah. I like meat, and the more years pass, the more angry i am at the psychovegans that populate my surroundings. I'd eat them. Brains first.
5.    If you've turned into a tree, which is a tree you would be?
I'm not much of a tree, i'm a poison ivy...
6.    That you would choose to see: sports, drama, cartoons, feature film, favorite TV series, news.
I like action fantasy with uber CGI, but cartoons are good too.
7.    Did you ever make a wish, looking for a shooting star?
I hold no superstitions, apart from Murphy's law.
8.    What is a geometric figure you would associate your character?
9.    Now if you will be asked draw any transport, what you want it to be?
Broomstick! No, dragon!
10.  You ever wrote poetry?
Yes. Well, weren't we all graphomanical dumbass teens once upon a time? Only most of us realized it's time to stop that particular bullshit.

Since i already trolled people with a similar tag within the last year, i'll be a decent person and refrain from doing it again.


In other news, my former workplace went kaplooey, so i try to work at as many art and fantasy cons as i can, which in my country is not many at all. But they're still a fun and vaguely profitable ego-pat. If only there were some more.

Firstly, i'm very happy to say that the great and powerful :icontazpoltorak: has lent his time and patience for my sake, and helped me get super-cool watercolor paper from far and barbarian lands.  I now have all the paper i can eat! Thank you Taz!
Here's some of his works.

I've entered a painting of mine in a contest here. ponies-for-everypony.deviantar… I think it's pretty nifty. If you think so too, consider giving me your vote? The painting is this one.

I seem to be lazy sometimes, lately. Allegedly my condition is good for making art consistently and advancing - my weekends are mostly free, and some free weekday evenings as well. But it seems that i let tiredness from work, and depression from family situations get in the way. I need more motivation to sit myself down, paint consistently, try to improve in medias i'm less experienced in. But, lazy. How do you handle similar states?

I might be going to Ireland in the fall! Can you recommend a noobie nice places to see? Tourist attractions that are unrelated to alcohol would be most welcome. :)

I decided to update my commission info, since the old sheet had stuff i don't even make anymore, and disappointing people isn't fun. So here is the new one, now with 20% more cool!

Does anyone wants to participate with me in this contest?… I have neat ideas for a journal skin design, but need someone who can code it into a usable CSS. I know the deadline is fairly soon, but if you're up to it, let me know.


Still adding awesome stuff to my etsy shop. Come take a look!
