Panther Falls:  Moss 1 by Natures-Studio

So beautiful and serene, the focus and lighting in this shot make the scene almost surreal. I really like the focus on specific section...

I love this! The fluidity of its movements is amazing and really adds to the looping of the entire animation. The joint movements is al...

Hi everyone! Thank you for coming to my page, I'm flattered.

I have had an account since February 2010 but I was inactive until February of 2016. Reasoning: I made this account for school, forgot about it, then re-discovered it (after guessing passwords and old e-mails for a while). Point: I've been active since February 2016, not February 2010, forgive me!

I am originally from NYC and now living in upstate New York where I work in a private nursery doing vegetable farming, flower cultivation, and all sorts of plant tomfoolery.

I have a group dedicated to nature in all of its forms that is open to any and everyone looking for a place to share and contribute their nature-related artwork: Naturally-Awesome

I'm not a professional artist, didn't go to art school or even take art classes in school but a lot of my interest in the arts came from my father who taught animation and technology in NYC. Though he passed away, he continues to inspire me in my memory of him and in his work.

Have an awesome day/week/month/year/life/afterlife/etc.

If you would like a download of any of my work without the weird watermark, just send me a note or something and I'll send you one!

TLDR Version:

My grandfather's COPD had complications, I got hurt at work, and there were problems with the construction going on at my house. I'm back now!

Whole Story:

So, here's the story: about a month ago there were some serious setbacks in the construction going on at my house, the worst of which was a sinkhole that opened due to an illegally installed septic line from the previous owners. In addition, my grandfather has been having problems with his COPD which required a lot of my time and attention to regulate his oxygen and make sure that things ran smoothly. On top of all of this, I somehow (still haven't figured it out) got a corrosive chemical compound in my eye at work and have been seeing a specialist to help restore vision and reduce my photo-sensitivity; part of my left cornea was burned by the chemical resulting in temporary loss of vision, extreme sensitivity to light, and (during the first week) intense burning and dryness in both eyes. Now that my vision is almost back to normal and my grandfather's condition has become more manageable I will be back to my regular activities on DeviantArt, including both my personal page, Naturally-Awesome, and RandomBrains.

My apologies to everyone for my sudden and unexplained absence and I will be sure to get back to all of you as soon as I can (especially Tuntalm and matarioshka who have been very good friends (and people in general) during my time on this site). There are far too many of you to tag you all, (but believe me I would and I'm sure you know who you are through our interactions together) but all of you are greatly appreciated and I am truly thankful to have made such connections.

Now that I've said all of that, I'd like to hear from you guys as to what's been going on (personally, on the site, with other projects, or anything that you'd like to share) so please feel free to post whatever you'd like in the comments, shoot me a note, or reach out in some way if it suits you.

Thank you all again for everything that you do and keep on being Naturally Awesome, my friends :)
Hey everyone, unfortunately (due to unforeseen circumstances) I will have to step back from DA for a little while but hopefully not too long!
To everyone who gave and continues to give their support and friendship, thank you, and I promise to come back soon!
Have a magical time, everybody, until I talk to you all again!

The bottle was leaking. I had sealed with silicone. The air inside was toxic and almost all died. but only almost everything.
The micro nature begins to reorganize itself.
