Print PacksI've been using Redbubble for a while now as a means of distributing art prints, but because they don't offer them in packs I've set up a new site where you can purchase them at a cheaper price than on Redbubble.
Hannah Alexander Artwork
The site features the entire collection of my Nouveau Princesses, plus a bunch of watercolour art that I don't often post here. Right now the princesses are all one size at 12 x 8 inches, and there's a mix and match option too!
I'll definitely consider expanding the collection there if people are interested, as well as adding other products such as mugs and phone cases which will once again be cheaper than Redbubble. However, if you're looking for individual prints, my Redbubble store is still your best bet.
Side note: I haven't been drawing for a long while but hopefully I'll get
Art Theft: Part 2EDIT: shop owner has now removed artwork! Thanks everyone
I suppose it never ends! Despite putting watermarks on all my work now, these little thieves still manage to sink their grubby claws into it.
Today, it's this person: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/PhoneFluff?section_id=14988270&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1
If you have a moment, please report her shop. Even though the other stolen art is familiar, I'm not sure who the artists are, so if you know them, please inform them! Or tell me and I'll inform them
Features, Flower Meanings and Ellen PageI'll be writing a more interesting journal entry soon, but for now, have some filler!
Firstly, just a little update. I'm going be finally completing my Disney Mucha Princess series within the next few months! I'm also going to be redesigning a few of the ones I'm unhappy with. Once they're all done, I'll be selling complete print packs in my Etsy store, as well as gift bags! More on that later.
A lot of people asked me where I get the flower meanings I use in my princess series from. This website has pretty much every flower and their respective meaning you could ever want! So there ya have it.
I also urge you all to go and watch Ellen Page's inspiring, honest and moving speech about sexuality and homophobia. It very nearly had me crying at the end of it. We need more people like Miss Page to represent an often misunderstood and downtrodden part of our society.<b>
Commissions: CLOSEDFor a limited time during December and the New Year I’m opening my commission slots. Here’s all the info:
How much is it going to cost me?
(I.e face and shoulders)
Digital Bust : £15
Watercolour Bust: £20
There is an extra charge for adding a background. The price will vary depending on the intricacy of the background but the starting cost is £5.
Small additional features such as flowers and accessories can be free of charge, depending on desired intricacy. Additional characters will be an extra 40% of the cost, minus background charges. E.g, if you wanted a Digital Portrait featuring two people it would be £15 + £6 (40% of £15)
[Boing! Boing!]How do I pay?[Boing! Boing!]
Ebay Art TheftA fellow Deviant kindly informed me of an art thief selling pendants imprinted with stolen artwork on Ebay.
My stolen art: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Disney-Tangled-Rapunzel-Princess-Art-Deco-Pendant-Necklace-Disneyland-Jewelry-/221302867109?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3386adc4a5&_uhb=1
Thief's shop: http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/courtneydisney/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid3686
I recognize some other work there but I'm not sure who they belong to. If you know who they are then please do contact them. For once I give permission to spam this shop to hell. I don't tolerate art theft in any form (especially as that particular painting of mine took forever to complete!).
Anyway, I hope someone will be able to inform the other artists. Thanks for your time
Just a friendly post letting you all know that I've set up an Instagram! I've been working on lots of side projects, including some Naruto cosplay stuff, so if your curiosity has been mildly aroused please hit me up. Also, leave your Instagram name in the comments and I'll hit you back
My Instagram name is: hannah_alexander24
Also, I had a bit of a run in with one of these strange role playing accounts on Instagram, or whatever the heck she called it. Some kind of shrine to Princess Bubblegum. Anyway, it had a ton of fanart done by a variety of artists, none of them credited. She wasn't claiming them to be her own, but I still don't massively agree with this shrine concept. Fanart isn't pubic domain and I think it's polite to credit. I get pretty mad when I see my artwork posted uncredited. She said she didn't know the artists, just pulled them off google images, but I still think there should have been a disclaimer or something. Any thoughts?
Mucho love :hu
Away With Thee, Mental IllnessOh, hai. So I'm gonna talk about something totally personal to me, yet something that's shared by millions of people every day. And I NEVER talk about this stuff. For the first time in seven years I've only just managed to talk about it to someone and it felt good, and after that I was able to tell someone else, which also felt good, so now I'm gonna tell all y'all.
(Please note that this isn't a cry for attention or sympathy. I'm just sharing my story with the kindling hope that it might help or comfort people who suffer in a similar way).
When I was seventeen I inexplicably developed a case of social anxiety. I don't know much about the hows or whys but I can tell you this: it totally messed me up. Back then I was in college (all you Americans call it High School) and although I had some awesome friends, some days I couldn't bring myself to leave the house much less go on crazy social adventures out of hours.
Schooling was an issue. I missed so mainly classes. Sometimes I'd be off fo
Women as Sex ObjectsWarning: Imma 'bout to rant.
First off I'd like to point out that I'm not a raving feminist. I acknowledge that women are not equal in western society (despite corporate efforts that seem to be more about statements and false enthusiasm on the subject rather than actually taking women seriously) and I don't think we will be equal for a long time, if ever. Just how it is. Unfortunate (from the perspective of a woman), but just how it is.
ANYWAY. Here's my rant. I'm really tired of a female character being undermined by her being half nude. Really, really tired of it. And I'm not talking about artistic nudity, I'm talking about ass-cheek flashing skirts, bikini tops and little else (I'm looking at you, Japan).
I love a strong female lead, but they're so rare. Writers find it so hard to create a complex female character; they're either so brave and outspoken that they become butch and unattractive by design, or they're a sex object. A hopeless damsel in distress or someone who can hold th
Changing UsernameJust letting everyone know that I'll be changing my username from LadyAdler to Hannah-Alexander .
LadyAdler was one of those impulsive names I chose at about the same time the first Sherlock Holmes movie came out. I didn't even like it that much. It holds no relevance to me as an artist nor does it have any nostalgic value. Even though illustrating is just a fun past time for me I feel that using my name is more professional and grown up. Generally I go by my name or the name of my Etsy store, Neverbird Designs, around the internetz anyway.
Just thought I'd let everyone know to avoid confusion! It will be changed in a couple of days You wont need to re-watch me or anything like that. If you type in my old username you'll be redirected to my new one automatically.
I think it's cool dA finally added the option to change your username. Over the years I've seen many artists complain about it. Some even create entirely new accounts just because they're sick of their old name.
BY THE WAY.

How to render MMD videos like a pro!
The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.
Now, I know that some of you will have, after reading only
Golden Age of IllustrationArt History Week
The 19th century marks a huge technology development, with printing techniques improving enough to make newspapers and books a truly mass-popular medium. Along with that, there appeared new opportunities for the illustrators. In the second half of the 19th century, the popularity of illustrated books and magazines reached the highest level recorded by that time and it eventually became the foundation to border the official beginning of the Golden Age of Illustration's timespan: 1880's. Formally it lasted until 1910's-1920's, with variations between Europe and North America.
The core illustrators lived a long time after this period and continued creating pictures in their style - which is defined as typical for the Golden Age. However, new styles and the slow decrease of popularity of book and newspaper illustrations (supported by the rising popularity of photography) after the World War determined the formal end of this age. The European illustrators were influenced mo

The gully by RezzanATAKOL
hey newton, gravity's flawedi.
starting anew from the flutter
and the sputter of lungs.
a vacant sea filled with feathers
and tumultuous clatter,
ribs in a treacherous pattern
resembling exiting rungs.
i want to wrestle the angels,
your tendency is the ladder.
involved with full indiscretion,
trading lazy for lace.
unspool the curse of the long-
limbs in a languorous flexion
i like the stab of the ankles,
you need the curves intersected.
opting to cull my extents
with trans-dimensional vigor.
spent my dysphoric corrections
on reconnecting lax ends.
lips in a spurious accent
feign a passionate rigor.
i tie myself to the anchor,
you extricate and ascend.
