Long walks in the mountain. Candlelit baths. No? Oh.
I'm not new to deviantart, but it's been over a decade. Can you believe dA's been around that long? It so has. So, new account, new efforts. I'm no artist and I'm not a formal student. Previously, I used to only share poems. I might do that again, but my primary focus has been on coding and graphics. This interest came mostly out of curiosity and a need to be self-sufficient. You see, I've started a forum roleplay game. Now, as most creative communities, even if it's a writing community, graphics are there for aesthetic appeal much like a cover of a book or whatever.
I spent the day browsing dA for brushes. For Gimp. You heard me! GIMP. This poor girl ain't got photoshop. I decided I wanted to watch and favorite many of the artists whose brushes and textures I'm going to be using for my banners, avatars, signatures, headers, and advertising graphics. Here I am! Let's see if I remember that I have an account on dA now.
My favorite styles:
Letterpresses. Obsessed with them at the moment.
Embossing. Also obsessed with this.
Mehndi stylistics and stencils.
Broken, jagged looking things.
Utter elegance. (I like the contrast of this with brokenness).
Bold and bright colors.
