Hello folks!

I have started streaming, both creative and video games. I usually start around 4pm EST and will go until 7pm EST. You can find me at www.twitch.tv/naturenerd02.com, there is also a link on the front page. :) I will try to put notifications up here when I go live. :)

Hello to all my lovely followers who still bother to follow me and read my journal entries.

I am still alive. This work season had been busy and as you can probably tell which did not leave me much time to post or stay active within here on dA. However I will be ending in October so I hope that will give me some time to come back and start doing some more drawing. I do plan on streaming my artwork and having a Youtube to show case some of my works. So do look forward to that. I am planning for this to be a fall-winter gig when I am job-less during that season. With my field most jobs are during the spring-summer season so it makes it difficult to pay the bills and sustain myself only on that income alone. I am hoping this plan pans out well and I actually make some good sales this winter so I can support myself. :)

Thanks

Leah

I honestly can't remember how I stumbled upon this artist, however I know I loved that fantasy themed style that the artist always uses. I especially love the bug humanoids that the artist creates. I am not too familiar with this artist so I apologize with the short blurb, I usually like making it am small paragraph. Well without further adieu...

I don't really remember how I stumbled upon this magnificent artist however; if I were to take a guess it would have been when I was looking for some good paleoart to enjoy. His paleo and wildlife art is beautiful, he has even illustrated a book about critters with shells. He has a formal education in the arts and has a company that follows the theme of crustaceans! His art is beautiful and refined! If you have a chance you should check his page on the other awesome things he does, such as super hero and monster art!

:iconmy--little--garden: My--Little--Garden :iconmy--little--garden:

My--Little--Garden is a new to deviantArt and I found her through my own group, Wildlife-Awareness. Either way she makes beautiful brooches of all different species of birds, her brooches are so well done and gorgeous she has all ready sported herself a Daily Deviation. She doesn't yet have a shop yet, but if you are interested in purchasing a brooch message her. :proud:

DIRE NEED! COMMISSIONS!

Fri Apr 1, 2016, 12:35 PM


I understand that commissions and purchasing custom products are novelty, however the artist creating those images need income as well. I am currently facing some financial troubles. Until I hear back from an employer that I have been hired my art is what I can rely on. There are two ways you can purchase art from me. One, you can commission me and here is the information for that...

Commission Goals



About Me
Name: Leah Klehn
Profession Status: B.T in Wildlife Management
Art Status: Hobbyist aspiring to become Professional

Commissions for a Cause
My idea behind this cause can be summed up in one phrase, “to give back”. I want the commissioner to have the feeling of purchasing something meaningful, for a good cause. But still receiving something nice in return. A good portion of my artwork is wildlife or animal related, and what better way to support my love of wildlife than through art commissions. For every commission I receive, 7% of that purchase will go to the non-profit organization SAVE THE FROGS! to support their efforts in amphibian conservation.

Commission List

Artwork
- A clean sketch of a subject with no or simple background: $5 (500 points)
- A clean sketch of one or multiple subjects with no or simple background: $7 (700 points)
- A lined (or inked) bust of a subject with no or simple background: $10 (1000 points)
- Full subject without background: $12 (1200 points)
- Full subject with background: $15 (1500points)
- Highly detailed works including multiple subjects and advanced background: $20 (2000 points)
- A fully rendered (colored) bust with no or simple background: $20 (2000 points)
- A fully rendered full subject with no background: $22 (2200 points)
- A fully rendered full subject with background: $25 (2500 points)
- Highly detailed work including multiple subjects and advanced background: $30 or more (3000 points or more)

Photography
Available by request
- 4x6: $5
- 5x8: $7
- 8x10: $15
Larger prints prices may vary
Check out my photography account at Through-the-Lens234
Prints also available on my Shopify!

Payment
I currently accept payment through Paypal, dA points, cash, or check. When you are interested in buying a commission, more information on where to send payment will be given to you.

The other way is through my Shopify shop. There art and photography prints can be purchased. Mugs, cell phone cases, and clothing can also be purchased there. www.leahcks-artistic-works.myshopify.com

My goal for the end of this month is $500.

LeahCK's Picks # 9: Leogon

Mon Mar 28, 2016, 1:23 PM


:iconleogon: Leogon :iconleogon:

I believe I first stumbled upon Leogon when I was looking for some nice paleo-art. His digital works of prehistoric creatures are very professional and scientific. He places these once living creatures in environments that almost bring them back to life. You can really get the feeling how these ancient critters used to live. His talents don't end at the digital medium. He is also very talented in the realm of traditional mediums as well. He is currently available for commission, so please check him out.

:pencil: Works :pencil:

Oxyaena lupina by Leogon Eastern Africa: Palaeoloxodon and Dinofelis by Leogon Bohlinia attica by Leogon Libralces gallicus by Leogon

Jaguar by Leogon Panthera pardus by Leogon Bison latifrons by Leogon Elasmotherium by Leogon

Pasargadae by Leogon Gate by Leogon A nation's glory:Persepolis III by Leogon Tachara by Leogon

Thank you for checking in on this issue of LeahCK's Picks. Tune in next Monday for the next featured artist! :aww:

LeahCK's Picks #8: MoonyMina

Mon Mar 21, 2016, 4:41 PM



:iconmoonymina: MoonyMina :iconmoonymina:

I believe I first meet MoonyMina on my Wildlife-Awareness group. She was a very active member and always submitted an entry to the monthly challenge, Animal of the Month. I appreciated this a lot so I decided to make her a contributor of my group to aid me with the challenge along with just daily maintenance of the group. She has always been willing to help out and she always keeps me in line, reminding me when the new month has started to establish the new animal of the month. For her loyalty to the group I felt that she deserved a thank you.

LeahCK's Picks #7: WEAPONIX

Mon Mar 14, 2016, 1:51 PM


:iconweaponix: WEAPONIX :iconweaponix:

I first discovered WEAPONIX through his first generation Poke'mon Poke'dex images that he created. I was so impressed on how clean and professional they looked I had to look up more of his artwork, and I am glad I did. His skill in mediums range from digital to tradition. His original works are just as good if not better than his fan based ones. His concept art takes on a more science fiction side of things which I really enjoy. From his works I can tell he is a big gamer at heart and also loves his Star Wars. :aww: He is an awesome artist and you should check him out! You won't be disapointed!

Scheduling and Social Media Sites

Wed Mar 2, 2016, 10:13 AM


I am giving myself a schedule so I can actually be more active on my sites. So as of now this will be my schedule: 

 

Wednesday and Friday: 

Update social media sites. This includes my personal websites, Twitter, Facebook, deviantArt, etc... 

 

Saturday: 

deviantArt group wildlife-awareness. I have not been as loyal as I should be to my own group and I feel terrible
about it so I hope this will structure me to actually be more active.

 

Eventually I would like to have a day to do art streaming and video game streaming.
but we will cross that bridge when it comes.

Mon Sep 7, 2015, 4:19 PM


Sorry, sorry, sorry!

I know I haven't done a LeahCK's Pick for the past few weeks. My work schedule changed to full time and I have been exhausted at the end of the day and just want to veg out and do nothing. So it will take me time to adjust to the new schedule. So for the time being LeahCK's Pick will probably be on a "when I feel" basis.

So thank you for your patience.

Cleaned Up Front Page

Sat Aug 22, 2015, 7:53 AM


Hello to all my lovely deviants! :fella:

I just cleaned up an reorganized the widgets on my front page. Tell me what you think and if you find a visually appealing. My aim was to make links to social media and information on selling artwork easier to see. Did I succeed?

I will be doing this on my photography account as well. :)

Remember LeahCK's Picks now come out on Monday. Also if you have suggestions on what other type of features or fun things I can do let me know. :aww:
