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.

You know, today is the Marine Corps Birthday....and I sometimes wonder what it all means. I mean if you sit down and REALLY think about it all, what does it mean? So because of this I decided to write down my feelings.

The Marine Corps birthday, is a day to celebrate the Marines, and everything that they stand for. To me, that is close to home as my father served in the Marine corps family for over twenty years..that to me means the world, he was a medivac doc, and for those of you who do not know what that means, well it means that he flew in helicopters and picked up the wounded soldiers and flew to safety, while trying to save their lives, or treat the wounds they had. He served in a time where life was pure hell. Everyday he went out there, and saved those men that were fighting for this country. He has been shot at numerous times, and has saved people just as much if not more.

To me, he is my Hero. He is what every single little girl out there wants in their fathers, someone to look up to, to be proud of. A real Hero. And in my eyes...he is. He not only saved lives on the battle field but did so at home as well. He had three beautiful daughters, Tina, Angie, and Dani. He gave those girls his most precious gift he could give...life. And with everything he went through on the battle field, he got to come home to his daughters, and they could be proud of him. Of what he accomplished, and what he sacrificed to give to his country, and to his girls. Then years later, he took me on as one of his daughters. Now I always knew him as Daddy Adu...and sometimes when I think back on the memories I have of him when I was very young...I miss them. Taking walks in the parks, and feeding the ducks. He was someone I could always count on. And as most of you know, if you are my friends...I went through a huge ordeal as a child, something that NO child should have to go through....and when Richard became my father...he did something that I don't think anyone else would have been able to do...

He saved me...he loved me, no matter what. He took me under his wings and loved me...welcomed me into his family as if I was his flesh and blood. He didn't care...he loved me...he wanted me as his daughter. And for that....for saving me...he is the best hero anyone could ask for. I just want to take this time to say thank you to that man...to my hero. In my eyes you are deserving of the purple heart!

And to this day I still feel that my father deserved the purple heart for everything he had done for his country...and even for his family. Because let's face it, he is amazing and when he told me he never wanted to get one because he did not feel that his sacrifice was as bad as others, that day he made me cry...and through those tears I could see the most beautiful aura around him, as if he was shining. Because he was, he is amazing. He gives to so many people and never once did he expect ANYTHING in return. I just want to say how much I love you daddy, and I want to thank you for everything you have ever done for me, and everything that you will continue to do for me. I love you.  

In closing...I know there are so many soldiers out there, fighting for this country and I am proud of them every single day..but then you think about your fathers, grand fathers, and great grandfathers...who faced so much more. Who protected this country in so many battles, disastrous battles, that left scars on the most strongest of men. Those from Vietnam who REFUSE to talk about it, like my father. Their wounds unable to fully heal because of what they had to endure, and that makes me appreciate and respect them even more.

So today...on the Marine Corps Birthday...I just want everyone to know, that I have a Hero...and so does everyone else who has a Marine, or even an Airman, Navy man, or Army man in their lives. Because they are all connected, they are all fighting for what is good in this life, our rights...and our lives.

So thank you....to all who serve us, all who have served us, who have sacrificed their life for us, and thank you to all who WILL serve us. You are what makes me proud of this country....you are what makes me proud of our Heroes.

My very firsy poem




Tale of Two Trees

Once, in a wide open field stood a tree, it was small, and still growing, but this tree, he was lonely. He had no one to talk to, and that saddened him deeply. A little girl one day, was walking through the field when she came across this tree, it seemed to lean to the side. It was sad, and lonely. She cried tears for him. She went home and asked her mother if she could buy a tree, to plant it next to the other tree. Her mother agreed and they planted the tree close by the other. The first tree was so happy, he had another tree growing next to him. The second tree, she was beautiful, and as she grew, the first tree began to fall in love with her. The little girl came to the two trees every year, on the same day she planted the second tree. The two trees, were in love, and they watched the little girl grow up in front of their eyes, the girl got married underneath those two trees. And the trees shined down upon her on her special day. More years passed by, and houses started to come up around the trees, scared of loosing one another, the two trees told each other how much they loved one another. One day, the second tree was cut down, and the first tree cried, beginning to lean once again, out of loneliness, but then something amazing happened, one of the second trees roots, had began to grow. Right next to the first tree, and what seemed like such a short time, the second tree began to grow with the first, intertwining. And creating a double, yet one tree. To show their love for each other, their branches created a heart shape together. To show that they were truly in love.
