*Losing weight news*
Oh my. I hate dead lines for studying. I have some 10 days to study for my graduation exams and I am so stressed! And I have a bad habit to eat a lot when I am stressed so I commited few really bad eating sins in last hours. And I had no time to exercise. So I am fixing it right now!

News + fat and cute - PHOTOS of arctic foxesHello!
Uchrm, I probably passed my graduation exams! Well, I see my grades, they should mean I passed!
Now I only need to re-write and defend my final thesis (which is what was planned ).
But studying should be over and finished!
I have not realized it yet, but if it is true and I really passed today's exams (I am always nervous that secretary was wrong and she wrote wrong grades to school info system ), then my studying is totally over and finished!
So if I wake up tomorrow to find the same grades as I found today, I will be happy
But to be honest, in last days, I was SO nervous that I ate literally everything I could, almost biting the furniture. And I did not have a second to waste, so no bike, no exercise. So wow, more free time now, more moving now. How cool!
I can not wait to be covered with sweat and to have a muscle pain after sporting once again (but it is true, I like to be "tired" like that )
Thanks for support, people!
Amazing SNOW LEOPARDS on snow - PHOTOSHi,
thank you for kind voluntary donations for free calendar (http://woxys.deviantart.com/art/Animal-photocalendar-2012-FOR-FREE-269531520) I really appreciate it!
Kiriban winners will be featured next time, ok?
Today I post photos of my favourite cats, snow leopards. All were taken in ZOO Jihlava with Canon Powershot S5 IS. I still have some sharp photos of nice moments, which I somehow "saved for better occassion". Ironically, I now do not feel like posting them, because although they are sharp and bright, they do not have SLR quality of shots taken with my SLR camera. There are also some very cute poses of baby snow leopard, so I might still post them later. I will consider it.
Nah, bad mood here.
And thank you for every , of course!
White wolves - PHOTOS (+ Kiriban VERY close)Hi!
Kiriban (744 444) is very close!
And I am busy and totally stressed. I fell asleep - I wanted to sleep only some 10 minutes, but I woke up now, after some 6 hours! it makes me unhappy. I am afraid I will not make it, there are so many pages and I do not remember anything. But I want the graduation exams to be already behind me. My life style is just terrible now two more days and it would kill me
Kiriban is close, features + TIGERS - PHOTOSHello!
At first, let me thank you all who donated points to me! thanks to you, I could really order a calendar, so it pleased me a lot those who donated over 100 points got their wallpaper, but I want to give a reward also to those who gave me less than 100 points, because they still helped me a lot. So below the announcement of new kiriban, you can find feature for kind donators and then photos of tigers
At second: KIRIBAN!
Catch my 733 333 pageviews and send me a proof via note, if you want to win a feature! it is quite close.
I just do not feature porn or animal cruelty, thanks for understanding
At third, SUCCESS, people! I had my first driving lesson on a regular road - I somehow was not that nervous about it, I was even looking forward to the lesson. And although I made many mistakes, the instructor told me that I was really VERY good, that my first driving was like the sixth lesson of another people. Yay! but of course I know it was just a luck of a beginn
Seriously, people? And wolves - PHOTOS!Hi!
I have been always curious about the number of people, who look at my journals. And new style of "favable" journals could finally show it to me. I was interested - when I post a journal, I usually have some + 400 views on my profile page. So I expected to have some 400 views on my last journals, which would confirm, that 400 persons read it. But it got some 6 000 views! it is MUCH more than my photos usually have! I can not believe this number is correct... I was told that the journal appeared in some dA news section, but I am not sure if that is a reason, because I had no special pageviews, just regular + 400, which is typical for a day, when I post a journal. I think that new visitors, who would be attracted by a journal, would probably (at least small part of them) visit my page, so I would have bigger number of pageviews
So this is a mystery, really...
As I said, I like my photo journals and I consider them my "trade mark", something which differs me from anot
New KIRIBAN is close + animals - PHOTOSHi,
here comes a new kiriban - catch my 677 777 pageviews, if you want to win a feature! and do not forget to send me a printscreen as a proof via note kiriban is VERY close, so if you want to try to catch it, it is the right time
(sorry, no feature for porn or animal abuse ;D)
Next time I will post last part of Lagoon PHOTOreport
Sorry, funny thief + ZOO Brno - animal PHOTOSHi!
At first, I want to apologize - because of my final exams, I could not answer notes, so finally I got 15 of them! All of them should be already answered, sorry for late replies. My brain was not able to work few days before and then also after graduation exams it should be ok now.
Also: sometime I might miss some of your comment's questions, sorry If you want to be 99,9% sure to get a reply from me, send me a note, please I always do my best to answer every single note. Very rarely, it can happen that I read some note minutes before leaving the flat, so I forget to answer it, but I think it is really VERY rare so once again - I love to answer questions, but if you want to be 99,9% sure to gain an answer, ask via note, please thank you!
At second - wohoo after pretty long time, my photo was reposted here on dA. It was not a big deal - I stayed calm and just told the person to remove the shot. She did remove it - but funny thing came, she posted a big h
Dangerous animal!!! + ZOO Zlin - PHOTOSHi!
Many people say, that ZOO Zlin is the best ZOO in the Czech republic. I must agree, that its exhibits are absolutely fantastic - huge, 100% natural, interesting and very photographer-friendly. Also, you can enter many exhibits, being in the enclosure together with big parrots, emus, kangaroos, deers and lemurs. ZOO Zlin just does not keep species I like - they had no canines except of maned wolves and from big cats, they have only tigers and lions. So I have visited it only once, I think. Since this time, ZOO got Hyacinth macaws, red pandas and very rarely kept New Guinea Singing Dogs, so I think I might visit it again next year
To speak about dangerous animal - ZOO built big modern pavilion, tropical hall Yucatan for South American species few years ago, housing also critically endangered Cuban crocodile. But they had to move them few days ago, because this species is extremely agressive. Crocodile were attacking the keepers. So ZOO will somehow rebuild the enclosure for a new
Awesome cute animals - PHOTOSHello!
I am still so sleepy I go to bed at 9 PM these days - so embarrasing
I also had to visit a doctor today (she wanted to check my blood and such, because she did not like my weight *is very ashamed*), nurse took my blood, which is always a horror for me. Well, I hope they would not find any awful illness like diabetes or so, I am scared
I came to the room and I was like: ,,Hello! I mean... you do not need to test my blood. I know why I am fat! It is because I used to eat only two big and quite unhealthy meals a day and I did not move at all! I started having 5 meals a day and I exercise - and I lost weight immediately!"
And the nurse smiled and said: ,,oh, you are afraid of a needle, are not you?"
Me: ,,Uh huh..."
And a mystery: after two months, I have almost the same weight, I lost only few kilos but in fact, I am absolutely sure I am much less fat. I really can wear clothes which were too small two months ago. I am really 100% sure I am less fat. But why doe
This time about me ;) and animals - PHOTOSHello!
At first let me wish you all the best for 2012 - happy new year, people!
I hope you will enjoy many amazing moments, that you will keep your beloved and you will make also new friends I wish you to stay healthy, because it is the most important thing!
I also must thank you for all support you gave me in 2011 - I hope my dA year 2012 will be at least as nice as 2011, because thanks to you, that year was really great when it came to dA things!
But in general, I am happy 2011 is over. It was not a good year for me and my family. Too many bad events, too many disappointments, too many days spent in hospital and even sadder places. So I hope 2012 can be a new start for something nice again.
And because I am a person who loves turning points, start of the new year is a good chance to set my goals. So although some people are mad about it, let me set my New Year's resolution:
New Year's resolutions
1) to lose more weight. Which means to exercise and ride a "bik
KIRIBAN, spams and cute polar foxes - PHOTOSHi!
You guys are fast - I did not plan to post a journal today, but I have to, because new kiriban is too close!
So: catch my 711 111 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof via note, if you want to be featured I just do not feature porn or animal cruelty kiriban is really close!
Spam... I noticed some official dA blog where they spoke about higher priority of fighting against spam. Honestly, there is probably something very wrong, because before dA posted it, I usually noticed only few - several spams a year. But since that post, I find spam on my dA account almost daily, sometimes even more spams a day! does it happen to you to? Those are messages like "As an anime fan, you can enjoy the best manga - LINK". It is annoying, I always report it
And now... FOXES!
EDIT - KIRIBAN IS CLOSE +fantastic animals - PHOTOHi!
SORRY for update, but I would like to inform you, that kiriban is quite close usually it happens during night, so my American watchers have the biggest chance to catch it. Now it seems to be Europe's turn. Good luck!
Catch my 744 444 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof if you want to win a feature! (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, please )
I am really stressed now - I study so much but I do not remember anything
Those texts are so complicated that when I finish reading, I am not able to say what it was about
And those are some 6 000 pages!
I feel really uneasy about it. I have no time to learn that!
Also, this winter is so bad when it comes to snow
I am really happy I took many photos of wolves on snow last year, because it seems that winter 2011/12 will not offer any nice photo oportunity. There is NO snow here only on mountains, but not here. I love snow, so it makes me sad
Well, time for new Kiriban!
Catch my 744
Tired, news + when the beauties sleep - PHOTOSHi!
I am so tired - I had to wake up at 5 AM, because I had my driving lesson and also exams.
I passed the computer test weeks ago, I got 100% of right answers.
I also passed the exam of technical knowledge weeks ago.
But I failed to pass practical driving exam for two times! they say that only 20% people pass all three exams for the first attempt. But my second attempt was absolutely screwed up - I was so depressed about it, feeling so ashamed.
But today I passed also this part, so I will have a driving licence soon
I am sleepy now - today's journal is fitting, as it feature cute sleeping poses of relaxing animals

one year membership to winner of eventahoy
i know what some of you may think here, "well, my skill level isn't going to win me anything here"
my friend, that is not the case in this event. ALL entries will be have the same amount of chance, the final winner is not based on how well the drawing or writing is done. the winner will be RANDOM. you are asked to do your best because you owe it to yourself for a good piece of work. The final piece will remain your own property, im just trying to get some activities going here. XD
you need to do one of the following to quality as an entry.
1. a drawing of a lamia in any media (traditional, digital, photo-manip, also welcome)
2. a short story involving a lamia. preferably no longer than 1 page.
there are a few versions of the lamia monster, what i am looking for is the one that is top half human, and lower half snake. now most of these are portrayed as female, but if you are up to it, feel free to make a male one.
also regarding the hair, you are free to make it snake hair or norma
pro tip: me.deviantart.comwe have this cool feature that may not be very well known...
if you go to me.deviantart.com you will land on the profile page of the account you're currently logged into.
(if you aren't logged into any account, to our frontpage you go)
it even works with any profile sub-page, like me.deviantart.com/journal/ or .../prints/ or .../gallery/ etc. which will direct the clicker to their own journal or store or gallery.
your newest deviation? me.deviantart.com/latest/
neat and simple, right? we originally implemented that to make it easier for us to link deviants to their own pages in our FAQs, but of course anyone can use it.
sadly it can be and is being abused, too.
you may have seen those stupid "worst artist on deviantart [link]" signatures, which upon clicking the link take you to your own profile.
while you may be lead to believe that you are being targeted by such half-witted prankster, simply hovering over that link and taking a glance at your br

BIG FAT DISCLAIMER
A Note on Daily Deviation FeaturesAt ten features into my tenure as Community Volunteer for Abstract & Surreal Photography I am noticing a certain trend in response to abstract and surreal Daily Deviations. I shall address some of the recurring themes here, and hopefully answer some questions along the way. At this point I would like to mention that I am talking about a small and vocal minority, and I sincerely thank the overwhelming majority for supporting the featured artists and their work. You're what makes this site such a great community.
With that said, let's get to the troublesome themes I am coming across.
The "This is crap!" Argument
As an observer and a critic, you're entitled to think that something isn't very good. However, exclaiming as such on the comments of a piece of work that an artist has spent time and energy creating is not only counter-productive, but rude and insulting, especially if it's not followed up with some advice about how you think they could make their
Man, what did I doSo I uploaded this as a curiosity and sudden realization
And my god, when I saw this afternoon the response, like 400+ comments? A hot debate I created about beauty, being natural or not. I kinda feel like a troll
But on to the point,
Please, I just want to say before anyone jumps into conclusions, I am neutral on the matter.
I don't care if wearing make-up is good or bad, or makes you look better or worse.
I'm just stating the obvious; people can be transformed by make-up.
My purpose of this is to actually show make-up is another form of ART, and to me, being the most important tool in my work, makes wonders.
Sometimes being natural is boring (NOT ugly I say), and my goal is to create characters that can't exist but are born and molded from my head to you by makeup. And they are not always beautiful, not to me. But I don't care.
I don't know if any of you get it, what I'm trying to say, or if it makes any sense.
But whatever, thought I had to say it. :
