Here is your February feature!! This girl is amazing and wonderful! Check out her stuff because she does a heck of a job!!! Here is Nonsensical-Inks

-What is your name?
Name’s Rowan!
-How old are you?
I’m 17.
-Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m a senior at an arts high school in Southern California, studying graphic design/design and interfaces (despite not liking it). Even though this is an arts school, I have never taken an art class in my life (this includes school).
-What type of art do you normally do?
Traditional pen-and-ink art in the surrealistic/conceptual genres, emphasis on blending elements of realistic illustration and abstract motifs together in one wonky piece.
-Can you tell us a little bit about how you got into art?
6 months ago I made a DA account because my friend had one. There was a pressure to upload something, of course, and I hadn’t drawn since elementary school, so my first deviation was crudely drawn. I practically forced myself to get better at art because I was extremely discontent with my current level of artistry at that time/was jealous of my artsy friends.
-What do you like most about the art you do?
I think my developing style is pretty interesting and unusual to look at. I like the complexity and intricate tendencies of my art, along with the deeper-than-superficial meanings behind them.
-Where would you like to see your art go?
I’ve made it my goal to achieve “professional freelance illustrator” status. I’ve always thought seeing my art as a tattoo or on an album cover would be pretty awesome!
-What would you like to learn how to do to make your art better?
I’m working on getting a better grasp of the relationship of light-and-shadow, especially. Dynamic gestures, composition, anatomy, foreshortening, and perspective are also fundamentals I need to study individually in more depth.
-What would you say to other artists out there?
Art is work. Some luck may be part of equation, but I think talent is subjective. If you want something as badly as you think you do, don’t sit and wait for inspiration, don’t wait to get out of your artblock, stop degrading your own work compared to others- chase after that desire to create, be relentless, study the fundamentals and build your art foundation strong, and practice, practice, practice. It’s the only way you’ll improve, I guarantee it.
-What made you come to deviantART?
A friend who had an account/ “I should probably start drawing again…”
-What do you think of the dA community, and the other artists on the site?
The community’s very encouraging, inspirational, and helpful. People will treat you with respect so long as you do the same. You can be greatly helped with advice, critiques, and feedback so long as you ask for it. I found out that everyone’s just like me, merely trying to improve at art too.
-Is there a shout out to a friend on dA, or a suggestion to the dA community or both you would like to do?
Shout out to this hooligan:iconaskthebagman: Without you I wouldn’t have even come to deviantART, and thus began this cycle of crazy art madness. Thank you for starting this whole mess. Do you know how many hours of my life I’ve killed by drawing?
-Do you take commissions?
Yes I do, traditional pieces and tattoo designs.
-If so where can we find the information for them?
I handle custom commissions privately. Feel free to send me a note for inquiries.

Now for her work!~

December Featured Artist 2014

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 7, 2014, 4:47 AM
Okay!! it is December, which means we get another featured artist Let me introduce you to rafun1312 ! It's a few days late, I apologize for this I was a bit under the weather and working way to much. However here we go!! Enjoy, this artist has some real talent and seems to be working her way up the ranks so let us all wish her the best of luck!

What is your name?

I go by Kerma B. on the internet, or by Rafun Li

How old are you?

On the 13th of this month I turn 25.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I live in Germany, at the baltic sea, where I’m a student. I’m almost finished with my biology bachelor, but I’m considering changing towards an art/design degree.

What type of art do you normally do?

I’m a big fan of all things fantasy and science-fiction, so my art mostly goes in that direction. My work these days is almost completely digital, and a lot of my pictures are illustrations for stories I’m working on.

Can you tell us a little bit about how you got into art?

Drawing always fascinated me. I remember when I was in kindergarten, how I was jealous of other girls for being better at it then I was. I started with tracing from picture books, but eventually, I got tired of the limitations tracing brings. I don’t remember how old I was when I started drawing “for real”, around twelve, thirteen, maybe. At this point, my parents gave me the opportunity to take a weekend workshop with a professional artist, where I learned basics about drawing and shading from a real object. From then I was kind of hooked. I experimented a lot with pencils, watercolor, and acrylics, but finally settled on digital art.

What do you like most about the art you do?

Since I also write stories, drawing for me is often a way to figure out details of my character-designs, my world-building. It helps me to visualize what I’m trying to describe. Sometimes a picture does say more than a thousand words, I guess.
I also really love the endless possibilities digital art brings. The varieties in style, colors, brushes, all within one program.

Where would you like to see your art go?

I would really like to reach a professional level, go to art school, get a degree, work as an artist.

What would you like to learn how to do to make your art better?

A little bit of everything, actually. My anatomy still has issues sometimes, perspective is something I always struggle with, and there’s a lot about textures for me to learn. And then of course there are the big struggles, like color balance, composition, and overall impact of a picture.

What would you say to other artists out there?

Don’t worry about stuff like talent. Try to learn something from every piece you draw, and try to step outside of the box every now and then. Though this is actually something I have to remind myself to do, too ;)

What made you come to deviantART?

A friend told me about this site, and it sounded fascinating. After I joined my account lay dormant for quite some time, before I really grew comfortable with sharing my art here.

What do you think of the dA community, and the other artists on the site?

dA is such a huge and varied site that I find it really hard to talk about ‘the community’. There are many, many great artists and great people here, but of course there also are trolls. I try to learn as much as I can from the first, and avoid the latter.

Is there a shout out to a friend on dA, or a suggestion to the dA community or both you would like to do?

My shout out would have to go to all the wonderful stock-providers here on dA, with all their amazing galleries, and also to all the people who write tutorials and share their knowledge with less experienced members. They’re doing such a great job, and I learned a lot from them.

Do you take commissions?

Um, no? I came to dA to learn, I never felt like I was at a point where someone would want to commission something from me.

If so where can we find the information for them?

If anyone should want to commission me, just send me a note, and we could certainly talk about it.

I have copy and pasted this from Keyade I do not own these words, only agree with them!

I'll be sharing :iconnarciskova:'s comments about the fine print. Hjerim thanks for writing this, I hope you don't mind me reposting this! She says in a comment:

A breakdown of the nastier parts of the fine print for everybody. I'm not by any means trying to discourage, dishearten or generally scare anybody off, but the prospect of $30,000 can be just tempting enough to make a person jump in the deep end without checking whether sharks are in the water.


For three(3) years after your submissions, You acknowledge and agree that (i) your submissions will be posted on the LINE Webtoon service at NAVER’S discretion; (ii) you have the right and authority to, and do hereby, grant to NAVER a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free and sub-licensable (through multiple tiers), right, in any media existing now or in the future, to use, copy, reproduce, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, edit, modify, adapt, translate their submissions, and to prepare derivative works based on their submissions for the service of NAVER and its subsidiaries and affiliates or for the service of the third party licensed by NAVER.

This one basically means that by sumbitting your piece, you're giving it to them, free, for three years to do more-or-less whatever they want with. This includes but is not limited to using it, tracing it, distributing it, or letting any third party associated with them do the same... and they don't have to pay you a penny. This goes for all submissions, not just the winner.

If the Grand Prize winner is actively enrolled in an art class in a post-secondary school or university (“School”) at the time of entry, the school will be offered a donation of $30,000 to the school to be used for its art department. If the School does not have an art department, then the School can determine how to use the prize money. School will be required to sign documentation formally accepting the donation to receive the prize.

If you're in school and you win the prize, it'll go to your school's art department rather than to you. If your school doesn't have an art department, too bad, because your school is still getting the money to spend on whatever they like.

Acceptance of any prize shall constitute and signify each winner’s agreement and consent that Sponsor and its designees may use the winner’s name, city, state, likeness, Submission and/or prize information in connection with the Contest for promotional, advertising or other purposes, worldwide, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, including the Internet, without limitation and without further payment, notification, permission or other consideration, except where prohibited by law. 

After you win, NAVER is allowed to display your face, name, where you live, and your art for any purpose they want. They're not going to pay you for it, and they don't even have to ask you or tell you when they're planning to slap a photo of your face on the side of a bus or whatever they choose.

[...] any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Contest or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the competent jurisdiction within Republic of Korea; (2) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Contest, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (3) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted to obtain awards for, and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.

If you end up needing to sue them for any reason, you have to go to Korea to do it before a Korean court, and your case will be considered under Korean law, NOT under US law or the law of the country you're from. You also can't sue for anything except out-of-pocket expenses, which they've already written off as Not Their Problem in another part of the terms of service, so you're likely to end up with nil. This is actually a pretty regular precaution that corporations take, but it's important to understand nonetheless.
