Journal History

I probably should have mentioned I went on holiday... Ooops! I actually forgot to post on here, but I went to an extended WGW for their 21st anniversary. But I am back now, I didn't have good connection while I was away so I was not very active online. Which is why messages have been later than normal.

I say later than normal because I can very often forget to check my dA... I prefer Patreon and Tumblr these days. I do still like the friends I do have on here, and honestly you are the reason why I am here. However I am seeing them disappear... The holiday was nice and I feel it was what I needed.

Myfi Portrait by Karla-Chan
Myfi Portrait
I have not been as active as I should with art lately, it has kind of felt like I have been really busy, but I haven't got that much stuff actually done. Sorry about that! Although there is always more on my Patreon account here: www.patreon.com/KarlaChan?ty=h Since everything goes on there first, especially if I have not been as active since well some people pay to view my art there. 

It is a really good site though, and honestly I think it is well worth checking out. Especially we all know what DA is like at this point. Honestly the only thing keeping me here is my friends. You can follow people for free on there, so yeah. I am not seeing much of a down side to the site. 

I should probably talk about this picture. This is a rough sketch of an up coming BJD I am waiting for. It is a bit weird because I have her head because she was a special event head. She will be a MNF Soony for the BJD collectors out there. However I am waiting for her body to be made. The doll was going to be a character called Trixie, however some bad stuff happened on the LARP drama front even though I am not part of it any more. So I decided a different character was for the best. 

I am still really excited about the doll, and I still feel lucky to get her. So hopefully the wait won't be too long. I plan to get her face-up sorted before her body gets here, so there is a less of a overall weight.

Britain is on the Rise! by Karla-Chan
Britain is on the Rise!
If you like my art, please consider visiting my Patreon: www.patreon.com/KarlaChan … supporting me! Anything helps! There is also a lot more art there as well as my art Tumblr here: karla-chan-art.tumblr.com/

I did this piece because I felt I needed to use my voice as an artist! I could say a lot about this, but I will try not to go on about it too much!

Expect for the texture this was all done traditionally! I did this with marker pens and Biro! It is a style I am really not used to doing with the stencil images as well, this is the first time I have tried it! I think in 3D and this was only half my idea, however I felt it was a piece that stood well on it’s own and drawing people in the foreground would make it look too busy. So I left it at this.   

So for my non UK friends, I thought I would explain a couple of things about this piece. We have recently had a general election, our voting system is unfit for purpose because we have a multi party system; it is no longer a two horse race.   

This has lead to 36% of the people who voted (but only 24% of the voting population) gaining FULL control over the country. No one expected this, not even the opinion polls we expected a coalition of some sort. This means that 63% of people who voted, voted against them. So people are angry, and rightly so. We feel this is not a true democracy. Not helped that 1 in 3 people did not place a vote.   

The title I choose because it had two meanings, one it actually part of a speech that David Cameron gave. Also people are angry to the point that there has been protests and riots about this. However because the BBC got told by the government they have to be careful what they say otherwise their budget is going to get cut. The reporting has not been correct. And has used deflections because of a small handful of people.   

Okay, so these guys got power and most people didn’t want it. Is it really going to be that bad? The short answer is yes. If you follow my karla-chans-bjds blog you will know I have been a bit like, the end is fucking nigh… 

This party that has given tax breaks to the rich, given themselves an 11% pay rise. Then targeted the poor with cuts to vital public services and the benefit system.  

They have already violated the court of human rights to the both both the EU and UN have filed reports on it, because people have died because of some of the cuts they have made. Oh and they want to scrap this, and ignore rulings before then. Food banks are really common to the point were the red cross has called a humanitarian crisis. There is a lot of information I have posted on my main blog, because honestly I am scared. A lot of us a scared. 

It was a dark day for Britain. I could go on about how bad they are for this country in great detail. I felt I needed to do this piece to have my voice as an artist. I also listened to a band called The Red Painting while doing this, since they have this thing about being a multi media experience and as part of their live shows they ask people to paint how the feel on stage. Which is kind of cool. They have inspired me to do this a lot, and I am really into them at the moment!

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
I am a traditional artist and lives just outside Manchester in the UK. As far as work done in the art industry, I do not have much experience but has a T-shirt and program design for a Manchester gaming convention known as "Game Con". I would love more experience and would enjoy computer game concept design, gaming/war-game/miniature figure concept design, card and book illustration or anything along that vein. I don't have any art school experience and is self taught using books, online guides and feedback of others to improve.

Although I do very much enjoy the social aspect of DA and love making friends. I am very thankful to everyone on here who has helped me grow, I could not have done it without you. I am always looking for ways to improve & is happy to receive any advise or critique. My main focus being fantasy art being influenced by anime. I also collect BJDs and very much enjoy the photography aspect of them.

A lot of my BJD work can be found on Tumblr -> karla-chans-bjds.tumblr.com/
