Have I really not made a journal in almost a year?!  
Anyway, I'm participating in Inktober again this year, and I hope you guys are, too!  I'll be posting on my facebook page here:
and my instagram AriesNamarie  if you want to see what I come up with this month.  Have fun, guys!

I'm very excited to be participating in Inktober for the first time this year!  I'll be posting daily on instagram, facebook, and twitter.  At the end of the month I'll put everything up here on DA and every one will be for sale on my Zibbet store for just $10 each with free shipping.  Follow me if you want to see my daily updates:

Well, better late than never!  

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?  7 years (although it seems much longer somehow!)

  2. What does your username mean?  Aries is my astrological sign, which I was very proud of when I first made this name for my email account in high school.  Namarie means "farewell" in the Tolkien elvish language, showing how macabre I was (and still am)  Mystery solved!  It kind of amazes me how many people think the name Marie is at the end of it.  

  3. Describe yourself in three words.  Lazy, existential, dreamer

  4. Are you left or right handed? Right handed

  5. What was your first deviation? Looks like this was the first thing I uploaded although I have much older pieces up now - it's from my college portfolio where I majored in Metals/Jewelry/Cadcam:  Nest Ring by AriesNamarie  And now I basically never make jewelry, go figure!  Although it is on my 30 before 30 list to make one real piece of jewelry this year :)

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?  Fantasy!  I love that I don't have to follow any rules

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?  Realism - I'm so jealous of painters that make things look like photographs!  But at the same time I know I would never have the patience.  

  8. What was your first favourite? This piece from my good friend and talented artist that I went to college with bluucircles:    Abacus 02 by bluucircles

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?  Fantasy pieces and fanart of things that I love

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Too hard to choose!  There are so many talented people here

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?  I would love to meet nati, I think she's so talented

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? Many deviants have inspired me to keep drawing when I've hit an art block - I always spend at least a few minutes per day looking at everyone else's beautiful creations

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?  Right now, watercolor and my tablet

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Hmm that's a tough one.  Most of my work gets created right here at my desk, but I probably brainstorm the most when I'm in the car

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Making and sending the Christmas cards that get distributed in the hospitals

Happy 15th Birthday DA!

Hey guys, just wanted to pop by and let you now I have a new section on my facebook page where you can literally buy work directly from my desk for a cheaper price before it gets put up for sale at etsy or storenvy.  I'll be doing NaNoWriMo starting today so there probably won't be too much uploaded this first month, but if you follow me on facebook you can stay updated on everything I have available!…
This is a new section of the page in which I will list new works for sale *exclusively* to my facebook followers for 2 weeks. If requested, I can reserve pieces at that time, but they will only be held for an additional month. If a piece is not sold or reserved in 2 weeks, it will be listed for sale on my etsy page for a higher price.  If you'd rather not use facebook and you're interested in a piece, you can also message me here on da (I just can't promise that I'll see it that day since I don't check in here daily anymore) 

These are the first two pieces listed:
The Unicorn Framed by AriesNamarie Amalthea Framed by AriesNamarie

More to come soon!
