Should I open commissions? Would anyone be willing to pay with money for a commission? (Comments are very much appreciated!) 

6 deviants said Yes, I'm interested, but for now I can't afford it (neither points nor money).
2 deviants said Nope, not interested in commissioning you.
No deviants said Yes! But I could only pay you with points.
No deviants said Yes, and I'd be willing to pay with money.

Hi there!

I'm just another someone trying to become a professional illustrator. I'm also prone to daydreaming and cuteness overloads.

Likes :
stories, penguins, DIY crafts, maps, walking, coffee, black ink trails on white paper, cute fluffy animals, reading, color of late afternoon sunlight, imagining things, people.

Dislikes :
health issues, malice and discrimination, close-up images of insects, doing housework, being rushed.

What can you expect to see in my gallery?
Well, I mostly draw cute animals and imaginary creatures or illustrate stories, but from time to time you can expect more serious and thoughtful subjects, as well as a few of my own stories, poems and comics.

If you'd like to ask anything about anything, or just say hi, please feel free to send me a note! :D

Monthly Watcher Feature - MoonyMina

Thu Dec 11, 2014, 12:38 PM

I’m so sorry for taking so long to post this feature! I had lots of other things to do, and I’m the worst with managing my time. Waaaah! I’ll work on that, I promise.

Today I’m presenting you MoonyMina, the amazingly versatile fellow deviant. Seriously, go take a look at her gallery; you’ll find all kinds of art - there are drawings, photos, knitting, paper and cardboard items, painted T-shirts, Playmobil, upcycling, stitching and sewing... It’s a wonderland! La la la la It has been difficult to select only a few from vast array of her works, but we somehow managed it together. :)

So, here’s a little bit about all the mediums she uses, in her own words:

“I've knitted and drawn for as long as I can remember... As a kid, I lived with my Granny a lot. She taught me how to knit and she had coloring books for me that I loved... so I guess my two first passions have their roots there. :) I've never lived without them, and never will... Besides, knitting (as well as stitching, upcyling, etc...) allows me to create clothes I imagine, but would never see in shops, and I like wearing original things. :D

Playmobils are a passion we developed with Hubby. It started very little, with funny little gifts, then began to take a lot of room... but we love creating dioramas and stories. :)

In fact, knitting (and creating patterns), drawing and playing with Playmobils are my main hobbies. I also like stitching or upcycling things (that allows me to satisfy my "I-won't-throw-this-because-it's-still-good-or-could-be-useful-in-some-ways" side) or working with other mediums from time to time... just for fun!”

As you can see, MoonyMina is super creative and always working on different artsy projects. :) One of them is the Big Disney Project, that started as drawing practice; she challenged herself to make a drawing for each of Disney DVDs, Blu-Rays and books she and her husband have collected over the 14 years of living together. Very ambitious project, but it’s going great so far!

“The fact is, I have a very, very over-active imagination... It used to annoy my mom, who is a very down-to-earth (and in my opinion: boring) person; she used to say that my imagination was a curse, because it could lead me nowhere... Now that I'm officially all grown-up ;), I see my imagination is a blessing: it gives me creativity in my lessons (I teach languages to adults), happiness and fun in my everyday life, and it was one of the first things Hubby was attracted to when we met...:)

My brain really needs to work, and it gets easily bored if I stick to only one or two creative activities.

So, what (or who) inspires her the most? She listed three things:

Bullet; Yellow My Hubby!! :D Well, he's my muse (always here to listen to my issues and questions about my creations and, mostly, he often has the right words to give me the starting spark when I'm unsure about what to do...)! He's also my first audience and tells me honestly what he thinks. And for the Playmobils, we are partners and always work together...

Bullet; Yellow You guys! With your art, you make me discover new things, find new angles, think up new ideas... and your comments and feedback help me a lot. They're often heart-warming, too. :)

Bullet; Yellow Many things can inspire me at unexpected times... Seeing a ball of yarn with unusual texture or colors in a shop can lead to 3 or 4 different patterns.  Walking in the forest or countryside, or in the older parts of a city gives me ideas for drawings and knittings... Films, series and books also have a big influence on me."

Huuuuge thanks to MoonyMina for sharing her awesome creations with us!

The next watcher feature raffle will probably be held after New Year, because the last half of December will be super-busy for me. Sweating a little... 

Thank you all for reading, and go give Moony’s gallery some favs! Shiny La
