There are very few entries, and a lot of points to be won. ;)
Have you ever just closed your eyes and allowed your imagination to fully consume you?
What would the world be like if you did this for a split second, and opened your eyes to
find that all of your imagination had leaked out into reality? Would inanimate objects suddenly
be just as alive as humans? Would humans be inanimate objects? Would natural roles be reversed,
where we looked up into the ocean, and walked across the sky?
What would happen if there was more to the sights we see every day, than just what we were
seeing with our eyes? Could you imagine what it would be like to find a bustling metropolis
thriving, trading, socializing and growing just beneath the roots of your favorite flowers? What
if all along, we (humanity as we perceive it) were never truly alone...what if everything we have ever
imagined has always been just beneath our nose? What would it look

I'm sorry my friends, I have not been present on deviantart for a long time. Without going into details, let's say that I had a really difficult time.
I could not focus on the contest either.
To give another's chance to participate, although the period has passed. I will add a new period, until february 15th. This will give me time to put my house in order and as there were only 4 participants, I hope to increase the number ofparticipants.
Remember that there are more than 1,500 points in price. Sorry for my long absence.

New You can now use any of my images. However, the use of the image must be consistent.

The more original the use, the more chance you have of winning

This is a great initiative. Photomanipulators check this out:

deviant ID_2 by perzarus

Just call me Rita or my username.

All you'll ever need to know about me....


Briefly studied Visual Communication with an emphasis in Graphic Design. I'm also pursuing a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science because technology is my first love.
(This keeps me busy and is the reason why I find myself quite occupied and unable to devote any time to creating more artwork =P)

I've dabbled with Photoshop when I was much younger though, way back in high school. (Ah, those days of artistic discovery)
Digital art is like more of a hobby to me. Photoshop versions used: PS7, CS2 and now CS6.
Pencil shading and dry pastels on paper are my most preferred media when it comes to traditional art. I'm always open to learning new art styles and other techniques...if I only had the time!

I've been lurking around DA since 2006 until I finally decided to make an account in 2014, I wasn't really active until 2015. I have watched this place grow into what it is today. The reason I learned PS was because of all the resources and tutorials that I found here.
DA was instrumental in bringing out my creative side. :dalove:

Photography is something I love. To capture nature in all its beauty and to have a moment frozen in time! :heart:

Interests & Random Stuff

Music is my BIGGEST inspiration. It's also something I'm quite passionate about. You'll find me air-drumming to my favourite songs all the time.
Favourite bands: Karnivool <3 , SubRosa, TesseracT, Rishloo, Katatonia, Cult Of Luna, Tool, God Is An Astronaut, Opeth, Skyharbor, Animals As Leaders, Sigur Ros, Ludovico Einaudi, Uneven Structure, Ne Obliviscaris, Monuments, Nine Inch Nails, Kylesa, Isis, Rosetta, How To Destroy Angels, Ulver, and many more.

Science Fiction and Futurism comes in a close second. I'm also inspired by the mysteries of this journey called life.

Other Stuff

Technology, Food (experimenting in the kitchen), Coffee, Closet Songwriter, Concerts, Learning something new everyday, Languages, Socio-economic issues, Mythology, Philosophy, Metaphysics and other random things.

You will see a bit of everything on my profile. I love experimenting with new & different mediums of artistic expression, trying out new things all the time to satisfy my inner hunger for something I've never done or experienced before. It is the fiber of who I am. If I had to make an individual DA account for everything I want to try, I'd be banned! So you will find all my work in this one tiny space on the internet. Feel free to drop by and have a chat, I promise I don't bite.

I also take stock photos. Please note that NOT all my photos are stock. Only the photos in the Stock and Resources folder are stock.
Please read the STOCK AND RESOURCES RULES rules before using my stock.

All my photography, photomanipulation & traditional media artworks are my own work. You may not use, edit, upload, redistribute, publish or claim as your own in any way. That's called stealing, and stealing is a crime.

Info: All my non-digital/traditional artworks are photos, taken with a point & shoot camera as I don't have a scanner. Sometimes the picture quality is compromised due to the lighting and angle of the photo, which may result in colours appearing slightly different from the original.

Fellow music addicts join me on

About Llamas, Faves and Comments.

Please don't thank me for the llamas. If you want to thank me, just return one back! =D

Sometimes my life gets in the way and I end up being quite busy IRL, so please forgive me if I take a while before I can get back to you. Please do not take it to heart if I do not personally thank you for faving my work, we all know that sometimes it can way too time-consuming to get through every notification. That does not mean I take it for granted. When you fave my work or give me a llama, I will look at your gallery and fave or comment on your work in return, not just as a form of gratitude but as form of supporting a fellow artist. I will always appreciate your support.
Rest assured, I DO read every single comment or note and I do appreciate every single positive interaction you have made with me so far. :heart:

Please don't watch me just to unwatch. That's kinda rude.
Any kind of hate, spam or promotions on my profile will be hidden. Persistent trolls will be blocked.

Thank you for visiting my little corner of dA. I appreciate every llama, favourite, comment and watch!
