at the beginning...At the beginning I never thought that I was able to draw and paint more than fifteen works in a month. Never.
A blog post about the last week of creating art works http://petrahollaender.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/week-four/
less and less active hereI won't post everything I create here on dA in the future… I feel like I am loosing the affinity to dA more an more. Either the site changes very much or my work does. I tried to give dA a second and a third chance but it just doesn't feel like it felt before.
The only thing that keeps me here are some friends and a few great artists…
The kind of work that I do doesn't seem to be very appreciated here nor popular. The community doesn't inspire me anymore. I will keep posting my 52 weeks project here, some other photos now and then and my best drawings.
But if you want to be up to date and see all my stuff I recommend you the following:
My Blog is probably the best source for drawings, paintings, thoughts etc.
For my photography you can follow me here on Facebook

As some people have known, I've been having a few Giveaways on Tumblr this season. There's always people here on Deviantart who say they can't participate because they don't Tumble :[.
So I decided I will have one last giveaway for my watchers here on Deviantart.
I'll use a random number generator ( on this journals favourite list) and the winner will get one throw pillow of my artwork of their choice:
Or anything else in my Featured Folder on a throw pillow case example below the obnoxious thumbnails :3

How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l
Don't you EVER give upPlease play the song while viewing this journal. I've tried my hardest to create a, well, a kind of experience for you.

Just make sure the whole journal is loaded, turn on your speakers, push play, and start scrolling. The song is about 4 minutes so keep that in mind as you scroll. Please share this journal and help spread it's message!

Most Popular CharactersThe Most Popular Characters at DeviantART
Have you ever wondered who the most popular characters are at DeviantART?
I liked $danlev's recent post on Trending deviantART Search Terms in October. It got me thinking about popular characters on DeviantART in terms of deviation count. I'm going to need some help with this research project.
Help Wanted, Reward Offered
Search for a character and submit the number of deviations found. You can post a screenshot or just put the number in a comment. Find a Top-10 character and get 100 points. Find a Top-50 character and get 10 points. Each person that faves this journal will get 1 point. If multiple people submit the same character, the first person gets the points.

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.
(The colours labelled as 'primary' are the primary colours in the RGB colour model. Primary colours of the CMYK colour model are cyan, magenta and yellow.)
