Ich werd Prinzessin! by kuschelirmel
Ich werd Prinzessin!
This one is inspired by a postcard saying "Ich schmeiß alles hin und werd Prinzessin!" which is German for "I'm going to quit everything (or specifically my job) and become a princess", delivered with a little foot stomping and a lot of pouting ;)

Red Square Bullet Red Square Bullet Red Square Bullet My art is NOT your stock! So hands off! No, you can't cut this up, use it for your website or forum, your signature or your grandma. If you want stock to play with, vist kuschelirmel-stock - and if you are interested in paying for the use of this image as your book cover, cd cover or whatever else, please contact me via note. If you are not willing to pay, maybe your grandma can knit you something for your cover. I'm sure she'll be happy to do it for free :aww:


Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hi there,
I'm Jasmin - I'm an engineer who loves pretty things,
above all butterflies and photomanips*.
I used to be the gallery mod for the photomanipulation category in 2006/07 and from Nov 2010 to April 2012.

* and chocolate of course, I almost forgot chocolate!
Please Note:
  • I often don't have much time during the week, so answers to comments and notes will be slow - I do read every single comment and I do try to answer all in a timely fashion, but sometimes it can take a week or two.
  • My artwork is not available for free and I don't do commissions.
    • If you want images you can drag through photoshop, feel free to take those available at kuschelirmel-stock.
    • If you like my work and want to share it, use the share buttons, don't repost!
    • If you want to use my artwork for a book cover, cd cover or the like, please contact me via note or email at kuschelirmel<at> and don't forget to tell me something about the project and its circumstances as well as which image(s) you are interested in - I will tell you the price for licensing one of my images according to the info I get from you, so be as specific as you can!
    • I'm sorry, I do not take commissions any more as it would not be fair to make you wait while I sort out my dayjob and other real life stuff -- if you think you are the exception because your project might interest me anyway, contact me and tell me about it. Just be aware that my time issues will not go away even if I do find your project to be the coolest there is...

Which of the following is your personal favourite? Is there something about it you'd like to know (technique, concept, idea,...)? It's for a project ;)

I just did something rather radical, rebellious even :wow:
Okay, okay, not all that rebellious... but radical, a wee tiny bit at least :giggle:
I unwatched all groups (except CRPhotomanipulation).


Because I was flooded with hundreds of deviations each day (yes, day, not week or month, day!) and I found that I was only seeing what everyone else was busy promoting instead of what the people I watch were doing. It seemed to me that my focus had gotten shifted by the introduction of groups -- not that I don't like groups and the oportunity they present to those new to dA who wouldn't otherwise be seen. But I watch over 900 deviants (including groups I guess) and that overwhelming flood is just too much to handle. And on top, I find myself stumbling into the galleries of long-time friends and going "oh, s/he's got something new! I didn't see that one, but it's so cool, how could I miss that?!".

The answer is mostly: the deviant in question is not actively promoting their art through groups (for whatever reason, including that it may be their hobby and they don't need/want the exposure so they spend their time elsewhere) and they are not "mainstream" enough or not known enough to have their art invited. So it doesn't show up a gazillion times in my dev watch, but only this once. And it gets buried under the flood of deviations that come through groups.

So, from now on, I'm going oldschool.

I'm going to be very, very picky about the groups I will watch (for example, I kept CRPhotomanipulation because it's the more-or-less official manip group and they are picky with accepting deviations). Instead of randomly accepting everything in my devwatch, I will make it a point to visit the groups I like (I hope I'll have some time over Christmas to make a list I can come back to and where others have the chance to comment and tell me what not to miss out on) and to focus first and foremost on the people I watch.

Which also means I might come by and press the watch button a little more frequently now ;)

If you know someone in the manip community I should not miss out on, please leave a comment!

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who has commented on my latest deviations. Especilly with the Lea piece I was rather unsure if anyone but a Dresden fan would be able to see anything in it :heart:

And I got some comments on the water magic piece that seem to indicate that people would be interested in seeing how I did the glow and the rain effects and/or a speedie video on the creation of the lighting (which is all I have on record). I will see what I can do - Christmas is coming ;) If you are interested, my tutorials are uploaded to kuschelirmel-stock :heart:
