The least the bloody mosquito can do is stop buzzing. Hearing them creates the anticipation of impending itchiness, which makes the whole thing worse ...and another thought - if a mozzie regurgitates the blood from a previous victim into a new one, are you at risk of contracting blood born diseases? Either way, those buzzing bastards must die!

Traditional Art - Drawings (realism).
I want everyone to take a good look at these drawings. Most of them have less than 50 faves - I find that sad.
I haven't done enough promoting over the last while so I'm adding a few former notices to my journal again
For something different check out the group:
This group is the very definition of what Deviant Art is to me. When I started visiting the site it use to depress me to see all the exceptional art...but it was also extreme motivation.At first it was a case of "monkey see, monkey do". I looked at what others were doing and worked really hard to emulate them. After a while I started adding my own flare until I started doing completely original pieces.
I think the :#draw-along: group helps artists do exactly that. They choose the reference for you so that you concentrate on your skill and interpretation, rather than wasting hours on deciding what to draw. Seeing other artists interpret the same reference helps you to think outside of your preconceptions of what can be done. Comparing yourself to others is sometimes hard but I believe it is the fastest way to grow.
On a personal note: nothing inspires me quite as much a envy. When I see someones work that I like better than my own, there's a 3 year-old version of me throwing a tantrum in my head going: "I wanna do that too!!!"

This is honestly the one group on dA where you are the most likely to have your art exposed. There are several members (including me) that do monthly features for the group. If you want to be part of an active community, this is the group for you.
The founder, Elsa (*Egil21) works hard to make sure every member is included and creates many opportunities for all the members to be noticed. Add her to your watch-list to see a busy bee at work!
