Give a feature, get a feature

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 18, 2012, 1:35 PM


Rules:
1. The first 20 people comment this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list!
2. If you comment, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on the first place. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

So here we go

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 12, 2010, 4:30 AM


Weekly rambling

    We had soo much snow this week. About 50cm of fresh snow at my frontdoor at friday morning - and I live in the city! That was realy fun.

Besides working and playing in the snow I made an artist-site on facebook. So whoever wants to follow me - go ahead, I would feel honored.
Not sure though, if I will finish much artworks till christmas - still have a lot to do and now that I feel well again I am in the gym 2-3 times a week.

Color Challenge

To edge myself on a bit, I decided to do a little challenge. No time limit, though, as my work does prevent such a thing^^
I will paint a picture (portrait, fullbody, boost - no limit there) of as many equine coat-colors as possible. Just to see if I can improve my way with colors. Therefor I started a list. I will update it, and of course you are most welcome to make suggestions :)

Welcome to Equine Stock Feature - Vol.1


This time starring venomxbaby



:bulletgreen:Editorial:bulletgreen:
There are a lot great equine-stock-photographers on deviantart. But often I see, that artists dont respect there rules. In a german art-group we decided to translate the stock-rules so more artist will be able to understand them.

Out of this idea the Equine Stock Feature was born. It will feature another artist and their rules with every volume.

Every feature contains of three parts: an interview with the artists, their stock-rules and some random examples of her work.

Initialy the interview was made for The-Equine-Artists.

Now have a good time reading it
Best wishes, Jana

P.S.: If you have ideas for future stock-features, want to suggest a stock-artist or to be featured yourself - let me know. I will see, what I can do about it^^



:bulletgreen:Interview:bulletgreen:

:iconvenomxbaby:
She lives in the Unites States (North Carolina) and is a professional wedding-photographer (www.pdpinfocus.com). Photographing horses is, next to making photomanipulations, one of her hobbies.

1. Since when are you a photographer?
I loved photography since I was a teen, but I started professionally photographing weddings in 2007. Through this work I learned a lot about photography, and really started getting into horse photography in 2010 as a hobby.

2. Since when do you publish stock photos and what did you inspire to do so?
Since a few years ago when I took some pictures at a local horse show. I uploaded them as stock and surprisingly they got a lot of interest, more than I ever expected. So I realized it would be awesome to give back to the equine art community here on DA by offering as many stock photos of horses as I can.

3. What is your favourite stock-photoshoot so far?
Well I can't say I ever had a perfect shoot, I have honestly had pretty bad luck with them lol. Most of them it was either raining, or 95 degrees and unbearably hot. Or the horse was unprepared and dirty, or the background was ugly. Maybe my luck will get better.. I hope.

4. Do you have a favourite "Model" for your stocks. If yes, why?
I really love the gray Andalusian I photographed a few times now, his name is Copernico Roy and he's just the sweetest and most handsome fella. He loves showing off for the camera and even when it was a horrible rainy day he strutted his stuff and gave me his best. No wonder he's one of the most popular subjects of all my stock.

5. Where do you take your photographs?
Anywhere I can get to. I really want to visit breeders, but its hard to get their attention and I can't really find many close to where I live. I can't afford to travel all over the country to photograph horses, but I wish to someday. Most of my shoots so far have been at stables where people board their horses, I just look for the pretty ones that I can get permission to photograph. Sometimes I meet nice people at horse shows or through connections, and try to arrange a shoot with them at their farms.

6. Do you accept stock-requests?
No, because I don't really have continued access to horses and it's not very profitable lol. I take pictures on the rare occasions that I get a chance to when I'm around them, and its usually always different horses.

7. If your stock was used for drawing-reference, and the picture is used for sim/rpg-games offsite deviantart - must your credit be ON the drawing or may it be in the description?
Credits always have to be directly on the picture.

8. May users create outlines out of your stock?
Sure, feel free to.

9. May users create adoptables out of your stock?
Yes, I don't mind about this either.

10. In your rulse you say, thats okay to sell prints, use the artwork commercially and use the arts on SIM/RPG. Yet in question 2 of the interview, you stated, that you always must be given ON the picture. Is that mandatory for prints/commecials, too? Cause often it wont be possible to give credit on the picture... Say if someone sells their artwork to a magazine or the created horse is used ingame as a "coat-color" on horse.com or someting like that.
Hmmm if its a print or commercial work where its impossible to use credits, then they should show me the work or explain how it will be used, and i can approve for them not to use credits.

11. Whats your aim for the next 12 month of deviantart?
Basically right now I'm just sitting the winter months out. I don't think I will have any photoshoots until spring/summer when horses and backgrounds look better. Especially since most horses need to be washed for photoshoots, and there's more of a chance that they will be clean in the warm seasons when its safe to bathe them without them getting sick. So I can't wait to see what great opportunities lay ahead in spring, I will be on the search for more horse shows and great models to photograph then :]



:bulletgreen:Stock-Rules:bulletgreen:

1. You must credit my stock with a link to my DA account (venomxbaby.deviantart.com) or with a link to the stock photo used.
2.Do NOT use in violent, graphic, or 'rated R' work. this means no blood or gore.
3. Do NOT re-post anywhere as stock. do not offer pre-cuts.
4. Do NOT upload these stock photos 'as is' anywhere else on the internet.
5. Don't just add a filter or text. No photo-blends. You must at least cut the horse out onto a new background.
6. You don't need to notify me of use.
7. Yes, you can use as a reference for digital/traditional art.
8. Yes, you can sell prints of your work. yes, commercial use of your created artwork is allowed.
9. Yes, you can use your artwork on sim games and role-playing games.

HARPG Falkenberg Stables Journal

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 20, 2010, 11:43 AM


Stable News


Journal auf Deutsch lesen   

Patrick Falkenberg took over the stables after the death of his great uncle. After selling most of the horses the business is now dept-free again.  

His last mare, Rising Haze is caring from an unknown sire, though. He is looking for informations about a possible the possible stud. Informations about Rising Haze: fav.me/d337xtx

(If your horse might be the Sire of Rising Haze foel, please drop a comment on this journal. We might check if it could be possible^^)


Stable History


     Name: Falkenberg Stables
Founded: 1928
Owner and Manager: Patrick Falkenberg
Location: Wintermoor, near Lüneburg Heath, Germany

Foundet 1928 by Eberhard Falkenberg the stables were one of the first partners in the newly founded Hanoverian Association. Back then the hanoverian horses were mainly bred for the use on farms.
After the II. Worldwar the stables were financial unsecure for many years they didtn play a role in the national breeding businesses. 1950 Frank Falkenberg took over the family business and restored it to a once again significant stable. He specialiced in hanoverian sports horses and his horses succeeded in all disciplines. For almost 4 centuries the stables were a name to be reckoned on. In the late 80s though the politic changes in Germany affected the stables hard - and at the age of 60 years Frank couldnt keep up the business and had quit the breeding business.

2010 Frank Falkenberg dies of old age. The stables are passed over to his great nephew Patrick. To bring the business into the blacks once again Patrick had to sell the remaining horses. Execpt for 12year old mare Rising Haze. She is mulish, hard to train, doesnt like humans and on top of everything she is pregant from an unknown stud.


Persons


Manager: Patrick Falkenberg

Age: 26
Career: Dipl. Media-Manager

Patrick studied Media Mangagement and after graduation he worked for various advertising agencies. He has no experience with horse or stables. But he is quite the whizzkid with economics and management. He hired the fully qualified groom Lea Wolf to take care of the horse. At the beginning the situation seem to demand to much of him - but he wouldnt be Patrick Falkenberg, if he wouldnt stand up to the challenge. So he will learn a lot in the next month - but never will he be a professionell jockey.


qualified groom: Lea Wolf

Age: 35
Profession: qualified groom

Lea worked for Frank Falkenberg before and knows the peculiarities of Rising Haze. She is responsible for the stabbles and teaches Patrick Riding and everything about the caring and keeping of horses.

    I am back! ^^ And it was wonderful to see my familiy again. I met the guy I fell in in love with about 12 years ago. And it feels I could just fall again. To bad he is married and has kids and everything.

Of course I did take a bunch of photographs of Dresden which I will upload in the next days.

Now I will work on my art again - thought proberly I wont get much done in the next days. I ve got a terrible cold and fever. And my throat fell like after swallowing a little bucket of nails.

Color Challenge

To edge myself on a bit, I decided to do a little challenge. No time limit, though, as my work does prevent such a thing^^
I will paint a picture (portrait, fullbody, boost - no limit there) of as many equine coat-colors as possible. Just to see if I can improve my way with colors. Therefor I started a list. I will update it, and of course you are most welcome to make suggestions :)

HARPG.de Falkenberg Gestüt

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 30, 2010, 8:13 AM


Aktuelles vom Gestüt


Read this in english     

Patrick Falkenberg hat das Gestüt nach dem Tod seines Großonkels übernommen. Nach dem Verkauf der meisten Tiere ist das Unternehmen nun schuldenfrei.

Seine letzte Stute, Rising Haze, ist jedoch trangend von einem unbekannten Hengst. Hinweise über den möglichen Erzeuger werde dringend gesucht.

Informationen zu Rising Haze: fav.me/d337xtx

(Bei Interesse an einem Breeding bitte im Journal kommentieren. Bei mehreren Angeboten suche ich mir eins aus^^)


Geschichte


     Name: Falkenberg Gestüt
Erbaut: Erstmals 1928
Besitzer: Patrick Falkenberg
Ort: Wintermoor, Nahe der Lüneburger Heide, Deutschland

Gegründet wurde das Gestüt 1928 von Eberhard Falkenberg als einer der ersten Ställe im neu gegründeten Verband des hannoverschen Warmbluts. Damals wurden die Hannoveraner noch vorrangig für die Landwirtschaft gezüchtet. Nach dem zweiten Weltkrieg ging es dem Stall wirtschaftlich schlecht und viele Jahre war nicht viel von ihm zu hören.

1950 übernimmt Frank Falkenberg das Familienunternehmen und baut es zu einem bedeutendem Stall aus. Er spezialisiert sich auf Hannoversche Sportpferde und seine Tiere erringen beutende Erfolge in allen Disziplinen. Über fast 4 Jahrzehnte bleibt des Gestüt ein Name, den in der Fachwelt jeder kennt. Ender der 80er treffen die politschen Umschwünge in Deutschland das Gestüt - im Alter von 60 Jahren schafft es Frank nicht mehr den Betrieb aufrecht zu erhalten und muss nach und nach die Zucht aufgeben.

2010 verstirbt Frank Falkenberg. Das Gestüt geht an seinen Großneffen Patrick Falkenberg über. Um das Unternehmen wieder in die schwarzen Zahlen zu bringen verkauft Patrick alle Tiere bis auf eine 12jährige Stute. Rising Haze ist stur, lässt sich nur schwer lenken, kann keine Rennen mehr gehen und außerdem noch tragend von einem unbekannten Hengst.



Personen


Eigentümer: Patrick Falkenberg

Alter: 26
Beruf: Dipl. Medienmanager

Patrick hat Medienmanagement studiert und danach für verschiedenen Werbeagenturen gearbeitet. Er hat keine Erfahrung mit Pferden oder Gestüten, jedoch ein glückliches Händchen in Buchführung und Management.

Um den Alltag des Gestüts bewältigen zu können hat er die Pferdewirtin Hanna Wolf übernommen. Zu Beginn scheint ihn die Situation ein wenig zu überfordern - aber er wäre nicht Patrick Falkenberg, wenn er sich dem nicht stellen würde. So wird er in den nächsten Monaten einiges zu Lernen haben - Rennen, wird er jedoch nie reiten.

Pferdewirtin: Lea Wolf

Alter: 35
Beruf: Gelernte Pferdewirtin

Lea hat schon für Frank auf dem Gestüt gearbeitet und kenne Rising Haze und ihr Eigenheiten. Sie führt den Stall und gibt Patrick Unterricht im Reiten und in der Pferdehaltung.

Weekly rambling


     Well, its Friday again. My my my - what a week!
On Monday (at high noon) my works internet service provider went down due to a accident with the fibreglass interface. This was a major dooms day cause my team manages the webcontent of one of Germanys biggest mobile service provider. Without access to the www - we where so fu*peeeep*.

On Thursday, after 24 hours forced workbreak we were online again - and I strained my neck, couldnt move my head and had to go to uncle doc. After two injections in my rear end I stumbled home. Just to discover that my granny-bunny has died.
I went straight to bed after this.

The rest of the week only went marginally better. I had some good coffee.

On the bright sight.My Artwork "Not yet lost" recieved over 100 favs. That a record in my galery. :iconpadfoot7411: gave the 100th :+fav: and won a simple headshot-drawing, though she hadnt answert yet :)
And I made nice progress in my Horse-Eye tutorial. It will be up this weekend.

So ignore my bad mood and stay tuned.

     Hello, Hola, Servus and Salut

Thanks for anyone who faved and commented on "Not yet lost". You made this artwork my best rated one :)
That's greatly appriciated.
Not yet lost by JanaW

Though I ve got some bad vibrations at work my muse has not abandoned me :) Unfortunately the day still only has 24 hours :( So probably I will lay aside my recent horse-character and do some practise on some crystalline /gemstone-linke thingy.
And I am planing on a short "Horse Eye - Quick & Dirty" Tutorial ;)

So thanks for reading, watching, faving and commenting - have a nice week and drop me a line, if you like.

     Hello watchers *grins*

I am not sure if I even should right this entry ^^ Actualy I wanted to write, that I am planing more arts and activity. That I am happy to have another Premium Membership and that life in general is great. And so on an on...

But you know fate, dont ya? She is sometime a bit of a bitch... so let me just say: Life is still alright, but not so great anymore. I feel still very creative at the moment and want to get in touch with my inner artist again *lol*

So be warned: There will be art ones more!


Featuring: My recent watchers


To celebrate this absolutly unsignificant day I will feature arts of my most recent watchers. Thank you guys and girls!

My little big world, CSS in Beta


     Alas! I did it! I got the time and the nerves do code my journal-css. What do you folks think?
     This aside - i am enjoing life! Work is great, weather is great (just not today), friends are great. I am doing some scribbles, but mostly am at work or outside. Maybe i will do some arttrades in the next weeks *shrugs*. I guess only time will tell ;)

Hopefuly fate trades all of you as kind as me.
Enjoy the evening(day, wherever you are) and check out DragonX141 His CSS-Tutorial are awesome!


Featuring: Divided Wolf


:iconmarionmorgenroth: I want to feature her for ages, now. But I always thought she deserves a nice and neat journal :)
         Divided Wolf is an amazing young woman, whos traditinal paintings tell us so much about herself. I love the emotions she expresses in coloring, structure and - last
but not least - motives. Her art is not about sunshines and walks in the park. Its about living in (and with) pain. Sometimes her pictures tell about strength, sometimes about heavy burdens. But never about weakness.

Now enjoy some of Divided Wolfs works, visit her galery and excuse my bad english.

Einige Watcher haben mich gefragt, ob es :thumb114278881: nicht als Button gäbe.
Leider bietet DA das nicht an.

Wenn sich jedoch 10 Leute finden, die einen einen Button als Schlüsselanhänger mit diesem Motiv kaufen würden, mach ich eine Bestellung.

Das ganze wäre dann ein runder Anhänger (56mm) an einer kurzen Metallkette mit Schlüsselring.
Kosten ungefähr 4Euro plus 0.55 Euro Versand per Post.

Interesse?

Ich denke farbtechnisch hab ich den Bildschirm ganz gut hinbekommen, aber ich muss die Helligkeit fast auf 0 stellen damit ich hier nicht schneeblind werde *g*
Und deshalbt kann ich grad nich wirklich einschätzen, ob ihr die Schatten gut erkennt...

Also: Sieht ihr alles?
