charm earrings by Crimefish
charm earrings
First upload in aaaaaaaaaages. I made these a few days ago - acrylic & glass beads & copper coloured findings. I guess I'll either gift them to friends or donate them to a fundraiser. :shrug:

I have a bunch of other jewellery to photograph & submit (no drawings atm). Hopefully I'll get around to that soon.

Hello, dA. Wow, my inbox has been filling up...

It's been far too long since my last update, and I'm sorry for that. Dad was very ill the past year or so, and he passed away last month.

I was recently diagnosed with autism (which didn't come as a surprise for me or my family). It was and is very stressful trying to cope with being different, and with people's impatience and contempt for my quirks, but hopefully attitudes will improve now that I can actually explain what causes them.

I'm sorry. I've just been far too tired and depressed to update. I hope to have some work to upload soonish!

Wonderful artwork. I watched you on my old account, and I remember your amazing art. Remembered your name exactly! Keep doing art! Btw why no art posted over a year?
Crimefish Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014
Oh, thanks! No art posted because I haven't had any to post! I've just been too ill to do much of anything. Sigh. I still have a work-in-progress to finish sometime...

Hi ! I see a lot of people drawing some really beautiful rendition of celebritys or of caracters, from stills from the tv-shows or movies maybe ? I'm trying to get better but i never seem to find good quality pictures(they are really small most of the time) or nice poses (I can only seem to find the 'glamour shots or other stiff pictures) to use as reference...

Your drawings are so good,expressive and precises, I was wondering if you have any tips on how to find good references, for fan art ? Clearly you know where to find reel pictures from the show ;)

Thanks for your time !

Hello there! I know exactly what you mean. I used to draw more promo photos, since they're so glossy & perfect & it's relatively easy to find high quality images. For those reasons using screencaps is more complicated. I tend to use my own, captured from high quality video files using VLC media player.

Whenever I try to look for screencaps online, they're either too small to use, or they're just the wrong frames. When I do it myself I can compare every frame for small differences & pick one that's exactly the way I want it. It sounds like a lot of work, but turns out to be no more work than scouring the internet for perfect images.

HI ! Thanks for taking the time to answer me !

Soo... you need to download the videos first, and then use a program to screencap ? I'm computer deficient, really, so everything relating to it is quite a challenge for me ;)

Hello, I work for a French Web-Magazine entitled Heat News which speaks about the serie Castle ( I am writting an interview about standswithapencil.deviantart.c… and she mentionned you in the question "Do you have any special artistic influences ?" of the interview. Of course it's to say you're crazy talented. I just wanted to be sure you accepted your Ddeviantart account to appear in the article.

PS : I love your drawings ! :)
Thanks, Mariane.
