Hello strangers!Hi everyone,
I hope you're all doing well. I've been absent from deviantART for the past 5 months due to illness, personal issues and study which has lead me to quit my photography for a lengthy amount of time but now I'm all better and my study isn't a top priority so I'll be uploading a lot more and I'll be more active on dA.
Partial solar eclipse next week!Hello everyone, sorry I've been so inactive the past few months, I've been having a lot going on in my personal life which has affected my photography greatly but hopefully that changes soon.
Next Wednesday there is going to be total solar eclipse happening in my state! Now the exact location of the total eclipse is 1785 kilometres (1109 miles) away from my location so I will only be able to see a partial solar eclipse where at the eclipses total peak 83% of the sun will be covered by the moon so I hope to purchase a filter for my lens before then so I can snap some photos of it for you all! Some more information about the eclipse can be seen here: http://eclipse2012.org.au/
Have a nice weekend
UpdateHi everyone, just a short update! Sorry I haven't been active recently, I've just be swamped with school work and lack of internet access. I'll be sure to post new work up soon for you all
Some sad news to bring:
This morning I found out that my pet rat Milo passed away, I had her for only a year but she was amazing to me, cheering me up when I was sad/stressed and just being there. I believe she had an upper respiratory tract infection which I wasn't aware of until this morning when I found her, I've been so upset all day. Loosing a pet is like loosing a family member :/ R.I.P Milo <3
Also; I've been quite active on my tumblr blog so check it out http://j-acob.tumblr.com
I'll be sure to post my kiriban winner feature soon and be more active.
Have a nice weekend
Stolen artwork!! IMPORTANTI want to start off by thanking myheartindollparts for sending me a note informing me that a facebook page has been uploading my work without permission, editing out my watermark and not crediting me at all. This page can be found here:
There are whole albums just full of MY work as well as hundreds of others with watermarks being edited out and no credit being given. I only know 2 deviants whose artwork is there; lieveheersbeetje, infuzedmedia, naked-in-the-rain and Senju-HiMe ... but there are hundreds more! Report this page. What they are doing is WRONG. They are infringing my copyright as well as others.
I hate art theft.
EDIT: The page was deleted! Thanks everyone for your support.

PE: Creating art on CommissionPE: Creating art on Commission
At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no. Being picky regarding which commission you accept is not a bad thing, but try not to automatically turn down commission because it seems to be violating your artistic integrity, it's hard to survive without paid jobs.
✐ 1. Communication and flexibility
This is the key aspect to being able to work on commissio

Leaving Southampton She was in the kitchen when he stumbled in noisily, tripping as he went past the shelves and catching the edge of the table to keep himself from falling.
Pretending not to hear the stream of curses that followed, she kept her eyes fixed on the dishes, letting her hand trail in the soapy water. There was a loud scraping of wood against grimy concrete as he drew a chair and collapsed into it. At this she looked up, and after a moment's hesitation, she said, unnecessarily, "You've been drinking."
He clutched his head and said nothing. He hadn't shaved in weeks and stank of sweat and alcohol; he looked much older than his eighteen years.
They sat in silence for a while. Then he announced, loudly, "Fuck."
She didn't bother to tell him off. She just waited. And jumped when he suddenly brought his fist down, hard, onto the table.
