Vector and Photoshop Tutorials ICYMI!Hi Dearhearts!
From time to time I'll pop by with links to my work elsewhere, as I understand there's still a number of users who have just followed this (now) empty gallery as well as users who followed me for years and likely miss a bunch of journal entries due to crazy full inboxes (me too!).
Firstly, here's the last journal entry that explains why I left dA.
Secondly, here's lovely updates of my artwork elsewhere!
Feel free to share these links around, as they contain my backlink while helps with analytics for Tuts+ and a possible boost for me personally.
Enjoy, and thanks for the support!
Leaving deviantArt: Goodbye, Dearhearts!As I'm not really active here and just don't get the site much anymore (in addition to art theft issues with myself and friends over the past 8 years never ending), I've decided it's time to move on to greener pastures.
I've put my work in storage (so it all still exists, just in case I need to bring it out and prove ownership again thanks to publishing dates) and may stop by from time to time to check out others' work, comment, or announce news when applicable.
It's been mostly lovely and I've met such brilliant artists here over the years. Many that I call really good friends. Now that we're all either into our 30s or looking at them (two years left -- feeling so Joey Tribbiani on this: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lh8rpt0a4d1qf7nz5o1_1280.jpg) the climate here isn't the same for us as it used to be. It's a young person's haven, where the hep cats go to doodle. And it's always been that way. Just haven't got the time to devote to a community that isn't something work-relate
Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and New WebsiteAhoy hoy!
I'm not here as often as I used to be, and even so it's to drop a couple things in the gallery and head on out.
As such, you can find my more active below:
New website being worked up. It's live at http://www.acrylicana.com, but missing a great deal of content.
I'll update with new tutorials as they're published.
Vote for me in April's Vector Battle!Hey! So I know a lot of people don't read journals anymore, so hopefully this is seen. My latest tutorial is a part of a vector battle over on Tuts+. It pits me and the fabulous Yulia Sokolova against each other with the theme of "diamonds/crystals".

Tutorial Requests: They are OpenHi!
If there's something drawing or vector-related you'd like to learn, and I haven't done a tutorial on it yet, please comment here (or note or email) with your request.
Whether it's a text treatment style, specific artwork of mine you'd like to learn to create, overall style of art, or specific tools/effects/etc., let me know.
Print Requests - Society6 Shop OpenAhoy hoy For prints of my work, please refer to my Society6 shop: http://society6.com/MaryWinkler
I'll offer prints through Etsy again when I can, but it'll likely be after the new year (or later, depending on when I can spring for a new thing of ink -- awfully expensive).
If you've got a specific request, let me know.

10 ways to become more productiveDear, deviantart fellow artists
It's difficult to feel motivated and stay focused on our goals all the time. But how to achieve what we want, how to not let procrastination stand in our way?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Set goals
Think about your ultimate goal - what is that matters to you the most, what would make you incredibly happy and excited. Write that down and work your way through to it. It will be the reason, the reminder for you to look forward in those times, when you'll feel less motivated.
Try to write also weekly, monthly and yearly goals - be reasonable and realistic regarding that, but don't be afraid of challenges. They have to be S.M.A.R.T. - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.
2. Plan tasks in previous day

To Tell a Story:

Your goal for this contest is to create a piece of art, with a specific story in mind. It can be your story, the story of someone you know, it can be fictional, it can be short, it can be sad, it can be ha

EpicPrincessofDoom and AquarianRoyalty are amazing people overall and deserve so much love! They are both cute and smart, with talents of their own.
EpicPrincessofDoom is very special to me because she is one of the first people I met on this site. Despite my flaws, and my stupid roleplaying, she's always up for being nice and has a large, and funny cast of amusing characters! She is also really cute sounding, and is overall a good person to be around. Don't let mean people keep you down, go for the crown my Australian cutie! 38)
AquarianRoyalty is the queen of rarepair ships. Be it Ararezi, Equius x everyone (especially the bby Rose Lalonde), or pale Erirezi, this girl has it! She attracts an array of fun and friendly people, so defs check her out! She has a lot

Happy creating, darlings.
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
