Wow! It's been a long time :-)

Hello! :wave:

It's nice to be back. Just a short little message to say that after graduating with honours from Law School I'm back.

I'm trying to combine my love for art with my career in Law, which is why I moved to Ireland to do a Master in E-Law & Intellectual Property Law.

Being in Ireland has been very stimulating for me. People here talk about my art to me, and told me I should "do more with it". They have a point of course, but the past few years have been very hectic and busy for me. Now that the main the degree is in the pocket, I feel I can relax a little and make some more time for myself. Creative expression and sharing my thoughts with the world seems like a good and honest way to express myself.

I hope all of you are well, new friends and old ones :). I look forward to catching up with you all.

All the best,

Emerald :heart:

P.S. Thanks to :idevWikiMe: for the cute journal skin. Sorry lovers of darkness, I'm a sucker for cute cats. :innocent:

Hello to all Art fiends!

Sorry for the delay but I had some bad things happening to me the last few days. It's a long story.

Anyway I received such wonderful entries I have had such a hard time choosing only one!

So I'm going to be giving away an extra print because I feel  I need to :)

Winners please contact me about which print(if applicable you can pick the sub also) you would like!

* tatatataaaaaaaaaaa ta ta ta ta tataaaaaaaaaaaaa*

And the winners are...

:bulletgreen: :winner:#1 place:

:iconwyrdling: with this gorgeous entry

It's such a pretty and complete CSS design. I really like the ornate subtle background that has been added and the midnight blue colour.
It's just simply beautiful.




:bulletgreen: #2nd place: :bulletgreen:

:iconkovowolf: with this beautiful entry .:: Journal Contest - BD ::. by KovoWolf

I love the frosty cool colours I found it really hard to choose between the two. I just felt the first was more mysterious and more "me". It's just a matter of personal taste really. However I really felt you deserved to win something for you lovely design. So I added a second prize.



To all others, your entries were fantastic! I thank you so much for entering. I wish I could let everyone be first place but alas, that's not how it goes.
I will be holding more contests soon though! So don't hesitate to enter


Well that's it for now folks!

I was wondering if anyone could/would like to help me with styling my journal. I'm afraid that CSS isn't my strongest point and let's face it. This layout just sucks lol.

Hi everyone,

Thank you for all the kind words. They made me smile, especially thanks to SouthernMan :hug:

Well I'm officially twenty now. My birthday didn't start very well as I got a card from my dad that said " hi twen"  instead of " hi twenty year old"  or " hi Em" which basically means he wasn't exactly sober as usual.
I'm going to try and forget about it but it's hard. I don't want him to ruin to my 20th so I'm going to do my best to take your advice.

Thanks for supporting me over my 19th year I really hope my artwork keeps you interested over my 20th. :heart:

Hope all is well with you.

Love,
Emerald :heart:

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the amazing feedback you have given me.
Also thanks to all the new watchers. I'm really extremely busy at the moment with different pieces that need to be done. Which is why I'm not super active. I will definitely be uploading more of them soon!

I'm sorry I can't thank you all personally but the feedback and favourites were just absolutely overwhelming. I am really very thankful though.

Also I've not been very well, having some problems with my health. So all of my energy is being put into getting better and artwork and commissions.

Commissions are currently open. Note or email me (xemeraldx@gmail.com) about the price as it really depends on what you want and what you wish to use it for.

Currently working on :
book cover for CrystalDragon174
book cover for ShortNSweetakaPR
personal commission

love,

  • Reading: Digital Fortress - Dan Brown (4 the 4th time)
I'm looking for models! In other words stock! Stock that I can use in prints, something perhaps exclusive?

I often get emails from people asking me to use their photos well here is your chance! If you have any interesting stock you wish me to use then please send it to xemeraldx@gmail.com and you might see something made with it popping up in my gallery.

[IMPORTANT!]
I can't say that I will definitely use the pictures as I can't make like 20 artworks and I'm not feeling super inspired atm. And some pictures just work.. and some don't. So please don't be upset if I don't use them it's nothing personal bit it has everything to do with my lack of superskills and time :heart:

Also for stockers on DA who allows prints? Without sending the whole email thing cos its so much hassle? I would really appreciate any names I'm not watching yet. There are probably many since I've been away for so long.

I will give you full credit for the pictures of course but they will not be a part of the image (in most cases) I create since I repaint the entire picture usually.

Anyway all help is welcome!

:hug:

p.s. it looks like I will have to write my css soon lol. I've missed so much of the updates, I'm lost! :lol:
I have to quit. I have no internet anymore, don't feel like explaining it all.
I will miss you all terribly. I will hopefull be back some time, don't know when though. I'm utterly depressed to have to give up yet another thing I love so much. :tears:

Anyway, good luck to you all.

Take care,
Emerald :heart:


Hey guys!

It's been a while! My mother joined deviantart how funny is that! No it's really sweet that she is here to support me. She has absolutely NO friends here yet so go show her some lurvvvvv

:iconbarbiedollsmum:

While you're at it please go visit MelissaGriffin she needs all the support she can get now.

As for the art, the metamorphosis series is almost done now. Suggestions for number 12 are still very welcome.
I look forward to releasing the calendars this year. There will be a few. 1 with your favourites. 1 with the metamorphosis series and 1 with my textured works. Hopefully you will find them satisfying.
I'm not sure about the covers yet so suggestions for which pieces should go there are welcome as well!

Thank you so much for showing such incredible support, every day I wake up and see so many kind words and favourites and it just really brings some sunshine into my life. Which is something I don't get so much of at the present. So thank you.

Hope all is well with you guys!
:hug:
Love,
Emerald

I have been informed of an identity theft.  They all seem to be the same person: Stacey Payne.
It's rather psychotic behaviour and I fnd it rather disturbing that people spend their time inpersonating me.
Anyhow I wanted to let you guys know that this is NOT the real me;

[/EDIT]
------------------------------


Thank you SOOOOOOO much! I reached 200.000 pageviews today and 3000 of you are watching what I do. All the lovely things you guys say and the support you show is just amazing.
Your input means everything to me, I really take it all very seriously. If you don't like something I do I take it to heart and when I hear good things it's just pure joy.

I feel like I did better than before and even though I have such a long long loooooooooong way to go it shows me I'm going forward.

That's something I've been wanting to say for some time now. So once again THANK YOU!

Love,
Emerald :heart:

Hey guys,

Thank you sooo much for the unbelievable feedback on such simple deviations. I really didnt expect a response like that AT ALL. Anyway I'm really grateful so thank you all once more.

Read it here news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/47…

I would like to express my disgust about the following event happening in London at the moment : news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/47…
I'm just shaking with anger that anyone could even think about doing such a thing. I'm am DISGUSTED!

The secret service has done an admirable not to forget AMAZING job over there. Thanks GOD they prevented this.

But that leaves one final questions; What will happen in the future?

First of all, I need more work so I caved in and got a myspace account again because I just really need the publicity. Please add me as a friend! :heart:

Hey guys,

How are you ? I've been terribly quite I know. Well first of all I'm glad you all liked my little tutorial. I will write more as soon as I can. I had to play mum for the last 2 weeks when my mother was in Ireland for my grandad's funeral. Everything went really well, as far as they can go well. My painting "Messiah" was burried with him, I'm happy because that way a part of me was there.

Last Monday I went to pick my mum up from the airport and her plane was delayed for 2 hours so Ed-Selecta (who was there with me) weren't too annoyed we said we'd go eat a burger and walk around some untill she got in.

Then we saw the plane was delayed yet another 2 hours :| due to technical problems with the plane. After the 2 another 2 hours could be added to the delay.
I was starting to get extremely worried. After a WHOPPING 8 hours I finally saw my mum and found out her plane almost crashed :( She was delayed the first 2 hours because of a fault with the plane, they obviously didn't fix it because when they had been up in the air for 20 minutes the engines died! :steaming: You'd think that when you take your plane on a test flight you do not take the passengers! I'm furious, I almost lost my mother thanks to their neglect.

Anyhow I'll try to be more active as soon as things go back to normal which will hopefully be soon.

Hope you are all doing well.

Lots of love,
Emerald:heart:

Thank you so much everyone that came to the chat! I'm absolutely overwhelmed by your interest in me and my art.

And to all the staff of DMchat
:iconmadnessism: :iconrealillusions: :iconssecret:
thanks so much for letting everything run smoothly and for asking me in the first place. It was a lot of fun. You are all fantastic! :heart:

The log will be up soon! So go and watch :icondmchat: it's the best chatroom for digital artists on DA! You should drop in some time!

Hey guys!

Well tomorrow is the big day. My first featured chat EVER. I'm so excited! Can't wait to talk to you guys since I don't get to know many of you normally since deviantART can be a hectic place. I'll do my best to answer any questions you might have.
Hope to see you there!

Thanks so much for all the support lately, it's so odd for me to see my work on the frontpage. The amount of feedback is overwhelming. I can't begin to tell how grateful I am. I know so many undiscovered artists on DeviantART and to finally get noticed is just really fantastic! So thank you once again.


:: Liek thanks you :: by Liek :: Liek thanks you :: by Liek :: Liek thanks you :: by Liek

Speaking of undiscovered talent. I'm one of the Digital Art staffmembers over at DailyDeviants if you have any suggestions please send a note over there! We would love to hear from you.

Ok now for the few people who don't believe I'm actually the person there. here are some webcam picks including the "rock on" pic you so badly wanted. A fake can't possibly have so many odd pictures.


  
Lots of love,

THANK YOU! The amount of comments and favs an watchers is just overwhelming. I want to thank everyone of you for spending time on me and my art. I can't possibly thank you all personally I'm really sorry. But instead I'm painting more works to show you, so I hope that makes up for it a little.
As you all know I'm going through a rather tough time atm. I'm creating a lot of artwork to keep my mind off things. You guys really brought a smile to my face. I thank you!

An extra prize added, this avatar must have taken ages to make. It's really cute just a bit too colourful for me. Still it's very admirable a pretty and you went through a lot of trouble therefore I couldn't leave you without a prize!

Let me know which print you would like! And if you would like it matte or glossy.

Journal

Well a while ago I told you guys my granddad was getting better. But he had to go to hospital yesterday and he passed away today, a little over an hour ago in fact.
I'm don't even really know why I'm writing this. I just felt the need to share I guess.

My mother and father are off to Ireland most likely tomorrow to go to the funeral, I have to stay behind.

The avatar contest is slightly delayed due to the fact that I'm not sure which one I like best yet. They are all wonderful.

I wanted to ask you guys to check out my latest work. Art is the one thing that keeps me going.



Hope you are all well.

Love,
Emerald
