G'day, mate!


The artists of these Magnificent pieces of art are amazing, so check them out. ^^


Synergist by Dogviolet
This is for the 'Change in season' contest by The-Art-Universe group. 

"The Theme is: change in season :D (Big Grin)

You can pick any season or seasonal activity to be the focal point of your piece of art."

I chose autumn.

Why, you ask?

A synergist is something that incites activity, and this describes autumn to me as it is the season that confronts us with the truth that summer is ending and (yes, alright) winter is coming. This is not a comfortable realisation, but it forces us to confront what needs to change in our lives.

This realisation is painfully incendiary, and it burns away our preconceptions - but ash is fertile, and from that slash and burn new things grow, both inside and out.

Autumn is a time of silent upheaval; although not one of the most extreme months, it fills the air with wild flurries of fragile, fire red leaves, so fiercely vibrant one day, and dead the next.
It's the time of the year where the world slows down, and takes a last deep breath before winter. 

Angry, sad, bitter and fierce, autumn is probably my favourite season. 

Sir Samuel Vimes by Dogviolet
Sir Samuel Vimes
Yep, more Pratchett fanart! Commander Vimes is just the coolest..... This is an older painting, done when I was around 15, I think. Maybe later. Acrylic on canvas.

Tell me what you think! :D

I'm gonna reiterate one of my favourite Pratchett quotes concerning this character:

From Thud, by Terry Pratchett: 

"We need to know the truth, Vimes. Commander Sam Vimes's truth. It may count for more than you think. In the Plains, certainly, and much further. People know about you, commander. Descendant of a watchman who believed that if a corrupted court will not behead an evil king, then the watchman should do it himself-"

"It was only one king," Vimes protested.

"Sam Vimes once arrested me for treason," said Vetinari calmly. "And Sam Vimes once arrested a dragon. Sam Vimes stopped a war between nations by arresting two high commands. He's an arresting fellow, Sam Vimes. Sam Vimes killed a werewolf with his bare hands, and carries law with him like a lamp-"

"Where did all that come from?"

"Watchmen across half the continent will say that Sam Vimes is as straight as an arrow, can't be corrupted, won't be turned, never took a bribe."

*dies of fangirling*

Dreamer by Dogviolet
Dreams in his head,
Hope in his eyes.


Done for the competition; "Hopes and Dreams" from the group 'artistrwelcome.' 

This is another one of my role play characters - a sun elf prince with tourettes, this time. His name is Vashothien Vesmeran, and he has a somewhat immature sense of humour. He is also going to be starring in the same storyline as Kadoak and Hetieua - in fact, Hetieuia is his cousin.
