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.
Adoptables - what?Can someone please explain to me what an 'adoptable' is?
Like: http://www.deviantart.com/art/III-Pokedopts-Gijinkas-Batch-Auction-OPEN-372250041 and http://www.deviantart.com/art/Pokemon-Gijinka-Adoptables-Batch-005-OPEN-372259555
So... from what I understand you're paying for... the right to use the artist's design? So you 'own' that character? Like, $30 for the chance replicate someone's work? It's like a commission you never asked for.
ANOTHER thing is in the 'Rules' it often says 'Feel free to change the design once you've purchased them'. Um. Whut. So... basically... you're... drawing your own character from scratch. What the heck are you paying this person for then?
AND THIS: 'Character is completely yours after purchase BUT this art and character design is completely mine and so credits would be really appreciated if you plan on uploading it anywhere.'
WHUT. So... you still don't technically OWN the design, even after paying for it??? No, srsly, what am I missing hereee???
Zombie Apocalypse!Sorry, sorry, but I just have to! It's a much talked about subject among my friends and society in general - What would you do in a zombie apocalypse?
I gotta admit, I think about this WAY too much. I acknowledge that I'm being totally dumb. Actually, my fear isn't a zombie apocalypse (let's face it, scientifically it'll never happen) but of either nuclear fallout or some kind of fast spreading virus.
But let's face it: everyone has a plan, even if they won't admit it. Everyone has at least pondered the subject.
Truthfully? I'll probably be one of the first to go. I'm rubbish in emergency situations, I panic, I have absolutely no outdoors survival skills, I rely heavily on technology and I'm very, very weak. Also if they're RUNNING zombies I'd be like, NOPE. F*** that. Ain't even gonna try. Everyone (especially boys) always think they're gonna be like Daryl Dixon (Walking Dead) and be all badass. I will readily admit that that will not be me. BUT. If by some miracle I manage to
Mucha Disney Princess Art Prints Now Available!Edit: Prints available on second site! Link down below.
I had trouble publishing art prints of my Mucha Princess series due to their dimensions. After some thought, I decided to go to an outside company - now it's their problem! Hehe.
You can find them here!
And also here!!
Any questions or print requests, let me know
ALSO. What do people think of art blogs? Been thinking of starting one to show WIPs, tutorials, random tidbits etc. I do lots of different art outside of dA so I thought it could be a place that people could follow ALL my work. Does anyone else have an art blog? What's the general feeling about them? Do you follow any? If you do, what do you like to see in blogs? Can you recommend any good blog hosts?

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio

PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
Looking at this colour-wheel we see that the colours lying opposite of each other (=complem
Our DutyWe swallowed the path home
Because we were hungry,
Though starving is an ongoing
Story, an empty bag
Dancing in the streets,
Full of an unfastened voice
Walking through the house,
Wind unchained, heart admonished.
Heaven fills its eyes, crawls away,
That sleeping boat content to follow
The vacant waves, intervals
Of dying that we dare not interrupt,
And we watch the kind ear shrinking
From our charcoal docks; heaven
With a full stomach crawls away.
This is what we were put here for.
Keep in Touch!
