What I've planned for 2014

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 11, 2014, 4:35 AM

Hi there :3,

soo 2014 is already 3 months old and I thought, it's time to give you a little preview of the things I've planned for this year.


- First of all, I want to be more active here again, but this will have to wait 'til May, when I'm done with the University. Until then I will just continue to submit art and comment + reply here and there, like now.

- Currently I will concentrate on finishing all the old artworks, I still owe to people, like Arttrades, Birthday Gifts and such. I've also planned to open my commissions and arttrades in the middle of the year, soo stay tuned.

- My comic 'The Pact' will be finished soon and I am still thinking about it's continuation after the story of Rhon and Aarok is finished. I already have a few ideas but still need to put them all in an order, which makes sense in the end ^^;. Hopefully... In genera,l I am very thankful about the whole feedback I got so far. It might be not as popular as many other projects here on DA but it's really nice to read, that some people enjoy my hard work. Currently I also try to give my world 'Caldarah' a proper background, a refsheet for the dragonbreeds, maybe a map in the future.

- Since the last one was three years ago, I might hold an art contest soon. I'm not sure, about the date yet, but I already have thought of an interesting task. It will mainly involve the creation of certain dragon designs but that's all I will tell for now ;).

- Last but not least, I'm planning on doing an point auction of old characters and have designed many new adoptables, that you can purchase, if you like them. First batch will be released this evening.


So far so good, hope you'll have a nice day.    And as always, if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask me :)

About me and my art

(c) by Marz7337

Janina L. / 26 y. / female/ from Germany / student, hobby artist & wannabe perfectionist

Welcome on my page, dear visitors!

As you might have already guessed, I am a fantasy artist, with the mainspot on dragons. I started to draw them at the age of 13, after I've read the book "Dragonsbane" by Barbara Hambly and was deeply impressed by these noble creatures. What I most like about them, is their variety in appearance and personality, which often seem to be limitless, compared to real animals.
2005 I started to show my pictures online, first in a german dragon forum, until most members were more active here to DA.
2006 I created this account here... well and here I am.

Aarok and Jessica

My account mascots and Main OCs :)
Two characters, who are very dear to me, since they both somehow not only represent myself, but also accompanied my through my life for more than 12 years now.

About my Art

I am an Hobby Artist and draw for fun, not to become rich or famous. Most of my pictures are either drawn digital with PS 0.6 or on the traditional way with Copicmarkers/ Coloured pencils.

Requests: By all means... being an hobby artist doesn't mean, that I am made out of free time, so: NO, I DON'T DO REQUESTS ANYMORE!

Arttrades : I really love to do Arttrades, but since I was fooled so often in the past of persons, who never did their part after I finished mine, I became very picky with accepting them. I'll write it in my journal when they're open, or ask people directly.

Commissions: Yes, i offer Commissions for DA Points, but they are closed atm. In 2013 I want to concentrate more on my own art and fanart.

Contests: Please, don't beg me to join your contest! I rarely participate in them anyway, for the same reasons as with the arttrades. If I'm interested in one, I'll join by myself.

I kinda forgot to send you a comment with a link to my trade part when I submitted the work, ahah ^^; ->…
I know we all get mentions, but it was a nice tradition (:
Aarok 12 hours ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well I haven't been online for some days, so I haven't looked into my inbox yet ^^. And I'm still not so sure, if I like or dislike this mention feature. I often get mentions from journals, of ppl who just have my icon there and of ppl who use my free linearts. It must be a pain for really popular artists xD, but I don't pity them.

Ohhh I'm so curious about your part now. Have to see it, immediatly! *clicks*

With this feature people stopped to comment with links to the works as mentions usually come to your inbox if your icon or nickname is mentioned, but it'll come even if they mention one of your works. I had a few mentions of people using my old emoticons, a couple in journals and the rest in deviations. It's interesting, but sometimes annoying.
Oh, you can switch it off for some deviations :)

Hello Aarok, it sure has been a very long time. Though... you probably don't remember me, and that's ok. :) How are you doing?
Aarok Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hi there, well your DA name is familiar to me.

Um good, I think.
Well, that's a start. Even though it sure has been a while since we both spoke to each other anyway

Well, I pretty much have the second part done, now I just have to re-read the whole thing and see if it needs any kind of editing.  I may too need to recap on his personalities too, just to be sure I did it right. =w=;  Not quite sure if he's the type that gets scared, but I'm taking it nice and slow just incase.  If ya wanna clarify some things about Aarok, feel free to do so through notes.  I just want a refresher while I double check, and before I submit it...

Hope you're doing well on your end though!  Seems like you got quite a few things planned for 2014. c:
Aarok Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesomeyyy, I'm already curious, what you came up with.

And of course you can ask me, if you need some closed details on him.
Alpha-735 3 days ago  Hobbyist Photographer
Really, I'm now contemplating redoing the whole second part.  Because first of all, I got all kinds of red flags going off in my head that I left out a lot of scenes that I intended to jot in there.  Second, trying to come up something creepy/scary takes a lot of thought, because I not only don't want to rush it (haste makes a cheesy scene), but also trying to keep the characters' personalities the same. =P

I'll ask you a question through notes.
