Animated Icons :D
To the Stars by drosera-sundews
wolf runcycle by drosera-sundews
Fumeiyo by drosera-sundews
Magpie animation 2.0 by drosera-sundews
Highly personalized animated icons that are completely shaded, highlighted, coloured and whatnot. I'm most specialized in locomotion loops, but I'm quite willingly to try anything ^^ 
Complex characters aren't a problem, though fullbody tribals might be a bit over the top. I won't draw any adult or offensive things, furthermore you can ask me about anything :)
You will recieve the watermark-free icon file, the full size file and any other size you might need for other sites. Just note me when you're interested :) 

Prices:  500 points - 5.00$ - 3.89 Euro  (I accept Paypall) 

Slot 1: [RESERVED] :iconzephyrkul: 
Slot 2: [CLOSED] :iconzarrendragon: 

PS: prizes may vary depending on the complexity of the movement and the character(s) involved (so the price can go up or down). Artist can be bribed with gift-art, kindness and freshly baked goods (real life people only))
Also saying where you got the icon from in a description somewhere would be kind but I won't haunt you for eternity if you don't want to, don't worry :P




Inktober - Day 30 - Failure by drosera-sundews
Inktober - Day 30 - Failure
"Hey Nathan, shouldn't we, you know, do something about the dragon in our living room? Just wondering..."
"Oh don't worry, I fed him like an hour ago, he'll be good."
"... Not what I meant"

day 30, day 30 of fucking 31 and I fail. Ah I'm just so dissapointed in myself. I nearly made it! And it wasn't even the semi-RSI that got me it wa smy own damn forgetfullness and miscalculation of the time to glue a fractured pig skull back together. I'm so dissapointed in myself :( and the shading on this is so ugly D:

Inktober - Day 29 - A Bottle of Imagination
...A Bottle of Hope  

I made this over the span of a couple of days, entirley left handed, not even with e right handed sketch. It was atisfactory to see how I got faster and faster ^^ Somehow I like relearning how to draw quite a bit. It's nice.

Inktober - Day 28 - Dragon drawing Dragon
Based on this post I saw on tumblr… about how some people just fail at drawing humans because in 9 out of 10 cases they just suddenly turn into dragons. So then, because I had no inspiration, I went and drew myself failing at drawing people. I believe I succeeded, a bit.  
Inktober - Day 27 - Call by drosera-sundews
Inktober - Day 27 - Call
And I call upon the mighty dragons to breath their fire and scorch away the negative energy that surrounds us...  

I went to spiritual meeting on positive energy tonight with my roommate. Henche the tekst. It was rather cool. 
I actually made this drawing a long time ago so I'm sort of cheating, but o well, it's better than getting RSI over inktober. Right?

Hello Internet, lovely meeting you all ^^
I'm Drosera-sundews. Just your friendly, neighbourhood pseudo-scientist. You can call me Sundews, or Loes (that's Dutch, pronounced as 'loser' without the "R"). Or anything else that at least sounds like my name, be creative :D

I am 18 years old, Dutch and a second year biology student. Biology and art are more or less my two great passions in life. I draw and write in my cheap ass student room inbetween dozens of practica and lectures, it can get hecktic, but I manage :)
I make mostly fantasy art. Both digital and traditional, and also do literature, animating and crafting on occasion. I love dragons and draw them a lot, you'll find loads of them in my gallery, but I also draw a loads of other stuff and experiment quite regularly. Better not trust your expectations XD

  • Listening to: warriors - imagine dragons
Sooo this weekend I will go on an excursion to one of the little "waddenislands" of my country to do some serious birding :D It's organized by my university and I'll go there with some friends and a lot of other biologists including, probably, some really big bird nerds. So I'll probably learn all the stuff and A friend and I will drive a tandum and it's going to be awesooome :D

Just wanted to share that with you ^^ I won't reply to anything this weekend, be warned. 

I very recently found this initiative on tumblr. It's a bit like Nanowrimo, except for visual artists working with ink. I'm not sure how many of you work with ink or would like to try it, but if you're interested, you can take a look at the site. I think events like these are a very good way to develop positive art habits and to fight of the horrible monster of procrastination that wants to fee don all your precious and delicious ideas! 

Either way, I am definitely going to try it. We'll see if I manage to do the entire month. I'm quite excited for this, actually. A really nice challenge this is going to be. 
So, during the month oktober I will try to post an ink drawing Every DAY! Wish me luck :D 

Now, for more serious news. 

The Crow that Flew Away
A dear friend of mine, :iconvisioncrow:, has left deviantart, possibly permanently, due to depression and other problems in real life. I was sort of shocked to see him go, he never made much art but had brilliant organizing skills, he build us a forum to make friends on and a brilliant group :iconartistbestiary: that was so much more than just a place to dump art in. Though naturally the forum powered it behind the screens, the group itself wasn't very impressive. We all loved it and found it awesome, but Crow had high hopes, and his life was being hard on him. One day, without warning, he shut the forum, killed the server. We were all shocked, we had no idea he was in such a bad state. 
He was going to do the same with the deviantart group. I managed to convince him to hand over the foundership to me last minute. He did so, and left without a word. 

I am, all in all, pretty devastated about this. I can only hope that Crow, now that he has cut his bond with the internet, will be able to finally set his life right. Listening to his stories was painful, in a way, since none of us could help from afar over the internet. That's one of the most terrible things about being connected this way, I think, for all of us. We can never truly help.

But we must not dwell in sadness. My friend is setting his life right, now. And in honour of him I have decided to keep his group alive, and, to all forum members who have lost their hangout spot, a dear friend, :iconxevangelx: and I have made a new forum. So that we can start over and keep our friendship on a personal level ^^ In honour of Crow, so that may he return he will know that he has not been forgotten. 

I know most of you won't know nything about the Artist Bestiary and the forums. But nevertheless I would like to invite you. Both the group and the forums are, as I believe, a brilliant way to get to know knew people on a personal level, regardless of art skills. I know some of my most treasured internet friends from this forums and I would wish for you all to find friends like that ^^ Please consider yourself invited to both:

The :iconartistbestiary: 

And our brand new forum, Icarus-pro!

I hope to see you all there ^^ 

Lot of love <3
