Hi guys! 

wooow it's been a while since I made a journal entry D: And I have been so innactive that I didn't even realise my premium membership running out:D Farewell pretty journal skins haha..

So lot's has happened since... I started my new course! It's been absolute fun, but tough. I also am following a masterclass in screenplay which is suuuuuper fun.. I might upload a script in the future, that would be interesting;) 

Because of my study I am currently traveling roughly around 5 hours a day for 4 days in the week, that's a bit silly. So me and my partner have been looking for a new home a bit closer to my study but not to far away for his work for the past couple of months.... and we finally found one yay! We only need to sign the contract but everything else is already in motion, I'm super excited of course!:D

Which means I could seriously need some extra cash. And then I remembered I still had some of my stickers yay... They are of the following artworks and are fit for both indoors and outdoors.

  Sticker: 20161210 172755 by Kaizoku-hime

Sticker: 20161210 172855 by Kaizoku-hime

Susuwatari Single by Kaizoku-hime

These are 10 x 10 cm (roughly 3,94 x 3,94 inch), polymer vinyl, and are fit for both indoors and outdoors.

If you wish to support me, (or just like my work lol) you can also find me on redbubble: www.redbubble.com/people/Kaizo…
Where you can buy more stickers, t-shirts, wall-art, leggings. etc etc.

I also don't mind personally printing my fan-art if you have a specific one in mind, just send me a message with what size you would like and which work and I will get back at you asap!

Commissions are currently closed!


Will hopefully get back to a feature journal soon but I thought some shameless self-promotion for a change wouldn't hurt:)

Thanks guys! <3

update and finally the give-away!=]

Journal Entry: Wed May 4, 2016, 8:54 AM
hi guys! 

I'm so sorry for not having posted anything for so long:( I miss DA so much but there hasn't been anything I made worthwhile to post on DA the last couple of weeks.. (though I am thinking of uploading some more speedpaints here too)

Soo how have you all been? I have been rather busy! I tried to conquer an art-block while applying for art-school haha. Life is a bit chaotic currently.


I have reached the 1000 likes on facebook and to celebrate the little milestone I am hosting a give-away. I will be giving away a traditional pre-existing sketch and a digital print to 2 lucky winners. if you are interested then hop over to my facebook and leave a comment on the post which of the 2 you would like to win to enter.

www.facebook.com/danaalink.art…


I really really hope to be posting something interesting again soonish T_T

Give-away, a Manga!! Live update and commissions!

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 29, 2016, 6:39 AM
Hiiii guys!!

aww man I hate how I am sort of afk from DA for a while now. I just don't have the time to answer your sweet comments on my latest work boo.. I'll get to that very soon:D

In the mean time I have been rather busy! As some of you know I have finished my website finally.

I have finished a showreel finally (yay) 





I am currently working together with my niece on a children's book! that's going to be tons of fun=] 

One of my client's has also contacted me that his fantasy/sci-fi card game will soon be launching (that I have illustrated 4 images for) and that I will receive a package of it myself. and I soon can hopefully share some images/more info about it, which is really exciting to me!

I am also working on a short manga currently(!!) that I wish to send in for the contest shounen jump is holding. (but the deadline is so close I might miss it D: still going to finish it though!=])

I have also send in an application for the artist in residence event Redbubble is hosting. (you will get to work at Redbubble HQ in either San Francisco or Melbourne in your own studio for half a year) Which got me so awfully nervous even sending in my application xD but there will be dozens of artists applying so we'll see how far I'll get:)

I also need your guys help if possible! I have entered a contest where the most shared work/most popular entry will receive $500,- so anyone of you that has facebook I would be so so so grateful if you could share the following link, you would help me out SO much! 

Please share this on your facebook:)

Speaking about facebook! Against my expectations! (lol) I am closing in on 1000 likes! whoopdiedooo on Facebook. At the 1000 likes on facebook I will be hosting a give-away where 2 people will win either one of my traditional works from last year, they will receive the original drawing shipped to them. And one digital commission, (possibly including a small print shipped to them depending on my financial situation by then haha). SOOOO if you want in on that, (or if you just would like to show me some love or support me :heart: please go give my facebook page a like!


I am also going to be opening cheap paypal commissions as soon as I am done with the manga. ($27 for a simple portrait of your choice). I expect the manga from where I am now, to take AT LEAST 2 weeks possibly more. But in the rare event you really want in on the commissions and get a "pre order" in (lol), please send me a note or an email at info@kaizokuhime.com

wellll i think that was it for now!! hope all of you are well, I read every single one of your comments and love you guys to bits :heart: 

p.s if it wasn't clear from the positive vibe radiating from this journal, I am doing absolutely GREAT mentally which is something soooo welcome after such a long time of depression.

Lots of love and hugs,

Dana

What I have been busy with..

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 11, 2015, 7:08 AM
Hi Guys!!! Boa Hancock (Luffy Fangirling) [V1] 

Ooooh man I feel like such a slacker:( just when I started to get some lovely activity on my DeviantArt I went and disappeared!! I will do my best to become more active again. Truth is I have been trying to enter a lot of competitions with mostly animations but also some illustrations. I don't think I shared a lot of them here as most of it seems a bit irrelevant to share on here.
BUT I really wanted to show you guys the animations I made! 

One of them made it through a pre-round for an extra exposure opportunity where I can win an XPS Dell laptop. But I didn't receive any update on how the event went so I can't really tell how I did yet..Luffy OP Icon 20 

Here are some of my contest entries they are all less then 16 sec:








I really hope to get back to features again and forums and chat rooms and actually spend time looking at other peoples work my message center is literally flooded T_T I watch to many damn people hahaha Σ(ノ°▽°)ノ

I am also thinking to stop with the fan-art fridays and make time for some study paintings....

ALLLLSOOOO I am trying to start a sketch meeting group for artists that are living in or visiting Groningen, the Netherlands. If you know Dutch people or you just want to follow or w.e come check the facebook group and spam your Dutch friends with it 
Σ(*ノ´>ω<。`)ノ love you loooong time!!. Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-04 (Heart Dance) [V1] 






Woah!

Mon Oct 19, 2015, 1:13 PM


hi! *Free Icon/Emote* Totoro ( Heart) 

Soooo I didn't even got to see my milestone of 50.000 pageviews..... And I also missed the 2000 watcher milestone! Britney Spears - Yay? 

Luffy and Hancock (Hug) [V1] wow seriously guys thank you so much for all your support Boa Hancock (Luffy Fangirling) [V1] 






As I stated somewhere a couple of days back I didn't expect my kiriban to be captured, (I think no one captured it, for some reason my pageviews sky rocket the one day more then the other..) anyhoo if you managed to screencap any number between the 49.990 and 50.010 you still have a chance of winning so be sure to note me a screencap. 


*update*

someone actually clean captured my 50.000 whoohoo 
:icondark-arctic-fox: I have send you a note back =]

I should do some poll event for a thank you for the 2k watchers either way... 

Also! I am so sorry if I haven't replied to any of your messages yet! messages are slowly piling up, so it takes a bit longer for me to respond then usual! Luffy Anime Emoji (Nose pick) [V5] 
I read every single one of your guys feedback and it means the world to me so I will work hard to get back to everyone asap :jumpingjacks: 

Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-04 (Heart Dance) [V1] 




And the winner is...

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 12, 2015, 7:16 AM
 yooo!Luffy Anime Emoji (Big grin) [V3] 


Again thanks, EVERYONE SO MUCH for participating!!

The point raffle winner:


So cleaning up the point raffle entries was quite the task D: as the rules stated it was only for watchers I had to filter all the favourites out that weren't watchers (you know that would've been really unfair else..) so I had to triple check to make sure I got everyone that did deserve to enter in, and give them a number.. I am not going to share this list as in my experience unnecessary discussion is only going to come out of that, while this entire thing is supposed to make people happy!:) so without further ado

:drumroll: *drumming sound*:drumroll: 



The winner to the 500 point raffle is:

:winner: remake Pink love III :iconrebbybear: Pink love III  :winner: remake 



The Wacom Tablet goes to:


And of course there was the tablet give away.. Wow you guys! thank you so so so much again for all these lovely entries!! I loved every single one of them! I wish I could give everyone the tablet but I really had to pick one... After careful consideration I had to pick...

:winner: remakeBunny Emoji-18 (Shower Love) [V1] :iconsillageuse:  Bunny Emoji-18 (Shower Love) [V1] :winner: remake 

with her entry:

Following Footsteps (contest entry) by Sillageuse


Many congratulations to both   :iconrebbybear: and  :iconsillageuse:

you can view all the lovely entries in this folder here: entries

I really hope to keep on receiving all your guys support! I am closing in to the 2000 watchers and I can't even begin to describe how much it means to me even 1 person following me and my journey on becoming a better artist, let alone almost 2000 people! your continuing support is super motivating and I really hope to be able to hold more raffles and give-aways in the future to show you my appreciation.. of your appreciation?? haha! :heart:

Bunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4] Now for the Kiriban!Neko Emoji-37 (Yay) [V2] 


As some of you know I am holding a kiriban at 50.000 pageviews.

- The one who screencaps this number will receive a free request (do's and don'ts will be discussed via notes.)Llama Emoji-03 (Sparkles) [V1] 

If you REALLY want it.. Be sure to screen capture any number between the 49.990 and 50.010, because chances are with my current pageviews the 50.000 will be captured by some random deviant who doesn't know or doesn't give 3 shits about me or my art:p (honestly I don't know where they come from.. the pageviews that is lol) 

So I am adding the rule that if no one captures the 50.000.. The CLOSEST number to 50.000 between the 49.990 and 50.010 will then win. all screencaptures must be send to me within 3 days of the screencap or the Kiriban is lost huehuhue

My Daily Deviation Highlights

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 24, 2015, 9:11 AM


Hello dearies! Pirate w00t 

There is this lovely Community Volunteer project going, In which they hope to spread more love and awareness for the Daily Deviations. And with that our fellow Deviant artists!

Considering JenFruzz tagged me I wanted to swap my Monday art exposure for this highlight. As I think the daily deviation concept is awesome! Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-04 (Heart Dance) [V1] 

I'd like to encourage anyone who reads this to join in on this lovely  project. To participate simply go through the "daily Deviations page" and collect some of your favorite pieces in a journal titled "My Daily Deviation Highlights". You can decide to focus feature specific categories, like Digital art or photography. but you can also go for some random pieces. whichever suits you the best!

(Also, 
Did you know there's a really easy way to put a shortcut to the DD page below your header? Go to your Settings and enable the Stick Menu under "Browsing"  once that is enabled you can rearrange the menu to your liking, which includes a direct link option to the DD section!=D)

Remember to tag your journal with #DDHighlights so your journal can easily be found by the community. Happy art hunting! Animated Love Monkey

DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 3:24 AM
Hi fellow DeviantArtist! :squee:

I was debating to myself, I really wanted to celebrate with you all the DeviantArt 15th Birthday! But I just posted my Tablet give-away journal yesterday... So I was like What to do, what to do, ...? .
giggle revamp 

But I give, I give! I couldn't resist after being tagged by JenFruzz now could I :love: 


-

Happy Birthday Godliek :D So happy birthday to you DA and may we have MANY MANY MANY happy years together!Happy Birthday Godliek :D 



-



1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

Actually, I forgot my anniversary this year! it's the 1st of August and I just finished my 3rd year! Squee!  



2. What does your username mean?

Pirate Princess La Pirate princess in Japanese! It's a tribute to One piece, it's that series that made me realize I wanted to become a professional artist and make people feel what I feel and see what I see when I enter an alternate universe (e.g read books, comic/manga, watch series/films listen to music watch people communicate etc etc!)

3. Describe yourself in three words.


uhm... spontaneous, passionate, analytic.


4. Are you left or right handed?


Right handed, I had a teacher once (A Dutch teacher even they have to write so much!) that grew up in a part where it was at that time still unaccepted to be left handed, so he was forced to write writh his right hand. His handwriting was horrible but according to him he couldn't go back to left either as he didn't get to develop that. (what a sad story actually!)

5. What was your first Deviation?


Gods I have no clue! I still have some oldies in there, I love to browse through major artists gallery in the hope to find their oldies and then compare where I am standing for myself technical wise. I want to become that for other aspiring artists one day as well so I am not ashamed anymore of my earlier works. Before I came to that conclusion though I deleted some of my first deviations! (I still have all my work on my hard drive though:p) it was probably some girl, or some anime screen cap practice. Not ashamed of that either because I used to focus on as realistic as possible when I was younger a I thought that was what it meant to become a great artist.

6. What is you favorite type of art to create?


Anything painting/drawing/animating! I enjoy both digital and traditional and enjoy so many different styles in those 2 media!


7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?


I find this a really tough question as I haven't mastered my current style. If I have to choose though I guess it would be camera handling, so I can film my own movies to use as refernce for my animating.

8. What was your first favourite?


NARUTO by shel-yang

I have loved and appreciated manga art from when I was little, I am rather serious about it and don't understand the negativity surrounding it as it has so many different subcategories. of course not all manga is great art! not all western paintings are great artworks either. I used to get still get so pissed off at people that are so short sighted that they can't accept the different cultural influences Japanese art and with that also manga has had. 

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?


this is to random! xD I enjoy so many art forms! :squee: I guess, fantasy related or nostalgic art, expressive brushwork, semi realism, also still manga inspired work. and lately also a lot of photography!

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?


Like I believe everyone else that filled in this questionnaire I have so many! I'll pick 4.
:iconyuumei: :iconwlop: :iconkuvshinov-ilya: :iconloish:

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?


Tough question again! fella Laughing (Reactions)  I guess it would be :iconloish: as she lives in Holland also, and I could spend hours asking her a gazillion questions how to get your paperwork together as a freelancer! next to the other gazillion how to art questions:p


12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?


Haruka-rugi and visiteur2 have been rocking my comment center the last couple of months being a tremendous and so appreciated support! :heart: really thank you guys :hug:

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?


my non existing Cintiq, my wacom tablet, charcoal, copic markers, akashiya sai thinline brush pen, charcoal, watercolor paint, watercolor pencils, colored pencils, graphite pencils, and soft pastels.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?


that really depends on my mood! drawing from live is something I rarely do as I get super self-conscious, but it is very inspiring being outside and just draw what you see. However I work best in silence in my own home with my kitties and a cup of coffee or wine or tea depending on the time^^


15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory



I have to pick getting a semi-finalist spot in the Artistic Journey Challenge with  My art journey (watch full view!) by Kaizoku-hime

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 6, 2015, 4:02 PM
To my dearest watchers! :love: 


I started to be a freelance Illustrator and animator since a couple of months now.

Last month was the first month, I was actually capable of paying the bills with my art only!
You can imagine how much of a milestone that was to me!Adorable Girl Anime Emoji (Heart Dance) [V6]  

I really want to celebrate that by thanking YOU my dear watchers for your endless support and love. 
I wouldn't have been able to do that without my DeviantArt page,

 I have received so many loving comments from so many lovely people, that I really wanted to do something back for my watchers.



A couple of months back, I entered a competition with as theme Game of Thrones, on the Wacom creatives Europe facebook page.  

They gave away a tablet every week for 3 weeks to the submitted Game of Thrones fan-art. 

In the third week, I received a super motivating lovely message from one of their employees, explaining to me that they couldn't decide a winner for the 3d week.

And considering the winner of the first week hadn't responded to their messages...  
They wanted to give the prize, a Wacom Intous manga, to me! for my I am the watcher on the walls fanart.
I am still so very happy and grateful to them! excited happy 


Now here's the thing! I already have a Wacom Intous pen & touch small, which is basically the same tablet! When I am going to buy a new tablet, it will be a Wacom Cintiq when I saved enough;)

So I decided to give away this brand new Intous manga! :squee:


Give Away by Kaizoku-hime


So enough talky about the WHY, how about the HOW!

Considering this is a graphic tablet I want to give this to someone that actually will make use of it/needs it. Therefore this is going to be an art competition. but since I also want to give the rest of my watchers that are here only for the looking and not for the creating, I will also throw in a point raffle for the people that favorite this journal.


How to win:


-

1. You have to be my watcher. 
2. Favorite this journal.
3. Pick up your pencils, painting tools, current tablet, charcoal, anything that you like to draw or paint or create with, and create an illustration that would show me why YOU would need this tablet.

-

When you are finished with your artwork, send me a NOTE with as subject "tablet give-away". 

:heart: Remember to put a link up in the comment section to this journal :heart:

-


You can find the entries in this folder: Kaizoku-hime contest entries


Prizes:

Grand prize: a Wacom Intous manga!


I will personally pick the entry that I find most fun/creative/inspiring/sweet whichever I like best. This is a personal thank you from me to you therefore I will not discuss my decision.

I will also throw in a raffle of 500 points!


For the people that Favorited this journal. 

As I want to give all my watchers, also the ones that don't draw, a chance to win something, I will use a random generator for this. 


Deadline: October 11th 23:59 pm CEST (Amsterdam time)
