Art that's so awesome I couldn't HOPE to do quality like these. Sounds defeatist of me but that's the way Life goes. Even if I did improve, it'd be nothing compared to THESE guys. Enjoy.

I love arts of fantasy, nature, imagination and whimsy. :D

This is the first, original account I have had on this site. Around 2006 I had no CLUE that there were art sites on the Net. I was still quite new to cruising the Web. I was delighted (in fact, excited) to find that a site such as DeviantART exists. I joined in 2007. (I thank Donna Barr for being here. Googling "Stinz" is part of why I found her account on here. The rest is history.)
I've been doing art since crib-hood (for many artists, this is NOTHING new. Tots draw or paint with anything on hand. Sometimes literally. I won't "go there". :XD:) Never give a 2 1/2 year old kid El Marko markers when said kid's playpen/crib is next to a wall. PS: wallpaper had a different taste back then. This would explain a lot about me. ;) )
I do art for fun, pretty much just for me. Also Chamilin arts for my friend Willow421. My 1# fan.  On here I could share my creations from my book "Rose Dancer".
What I like most is that I can learn new techniques, try new mediums (gouache and pastel are new to me), and I found new movies and characters on here. If not for DA, I'd never have been a Death Note fan. :D My art quality has improved a bit (I say a BIT. I'll never be perfect.) since finding this wonderful art community online. There's others out there but this is my "home". I feel most comfortable here.

Here are a few of my fave works:

Arabian Sunset revised and resized by Raph1966  Mom was the first to point out that this could be an optical illusion. Which way is the horse facing? (Who cares?) This is a digital redeux of an acrylic painting I did for her as a Christmas gift back in 1983 or so. It's still kicking around somewhere.

Colored Tiger Lili by Raph1966 A digital re-do of Willow421's "Tiger Lili" art. The original graphite art can be found as a thumb or link on this deviation. I had her permission to fool around with this.

Acorn Mice by Raph1966 Pencil art of a mice in acorn figurine at a friend's house Up Maine. Just wanted to see if I could do it. I'm lousy at copying things (still life) but this came out acceptable.


Blueberry Pig In Daisies by Raph1966  Just plain cute. And tons of fun to do. I saved this as a RIFF so I could change the backgrounds. :plotting:

Cat God LOLCat by Raph1966  Not only the best shot of Cherokee I've taken, but makes him look imperious. He's not, he's a crybaby. :lol: The original is in BlueSolitaire or FlowerFreak galleries. I lost track of which. Check both. :XD:

Raph the Snow Centaur colored by Raph1966 One of my all-time faves. My OCs Raph, Shawna and Serena having some quality time. This was a lot of fun to do ("watercolor" and "acrylic" snowflakes on Corel Painter X)


Zebras Brighter Than Evah by Raph1966 Despite things I see wrong with it even now, this was SO much fun to do. And that's what counts. Art done strictly for work is a joyless endeavor, IMO. One of my very favorite artworks.

Fairy Fox by Raph1966 Funny what pops into your head while waiting for your food at a local restaurant. :XD: Hardly an original design or idea but it's my version.

Buck in Repose...Colored by Raph1966  digitally colored version of a deer line art (thumb is in deviation comments).

SO many more I could pick but there's really no more room left.  BlueSolitaire isn't doing a "My DeviantART Story", so I'll sneak a few of the best in here:

Well, I thank you for the fave even if you don't reply back.  I don't have a lot of time sometimes too.  But I do appreciate new folks stopping by and acknowledging my work.  And you're right, if it's not fun it's not worth it.  dA is the best.  Better than the other 2 places I was on before.  What a joke they are after being here!  You've got some interesting pieces of art.  I'll take a look now.  Ta Ta! :)
