Christmas Ornament Giveaway

That's right, it's giveaway time!

Go here to enter!


Lots of different ways to enter! The more entries you earn the better your chances!

These beautiful clear ornaments were an added bonus sample from my printer, and I've decided to pass them on to you! I currently only have two sets and will give one away, and if I get enough entries I might give TWO pairs away! Because the acrylic is clear, you can see the design from either side and Christmas tree lights make the edges glisten beautifully!

The giveaway will end Monday, December 16th and the winner will be announced within 48 hours.
FrancescaDelfino recently ran a still life contest. There were tons of amazing entries, but here are the three winners:

Red Tea by Silvermoonswan
First place: "Red Tea" by Silvermoonswan

You Were Always Running Out of Time by VelvetRedBullet
Second place: "You Were Always Running Out of Time" by VelvetRedBullet

Differences by KatharinaKuebler
Third place: "Differences" by KatharinaKuebler

Beautiful work, everyone!
HappyKittyShop is doing a plush giveaway! She makes adorable My Little Pony, Catpug, and Puppycat plushes! For all the rules of the giveaway and to enter see her journal.

My premium membership has ran out again, so I opened point donations on my page if anyone has points they'd like to contribute. I use the premium membership to do features of people's artwork, make polls so I can learn more about you and what you like, give critiques to help you learn, and get critiques to help me learn. =) Feel free to donate, but don't feel obligated. I just like to have it there as an option. (No feature today since I can't post thumbnails without a premium membership.)

I'm going to be a vendor at G.A.M.E. in Springfield, MO. G.A.M.E. stands for Gaming Arts Media Expo and it's a big event with lots of tabletop, role playing, card, and video games, as well as costume contests and tons of other stuff. It's going to be October 4th through the 7th in Springfield, Missouri. I'll be selling my Dorky Dino products, along with some of my other artwork. Also sharing a booth with me will be my friend Ajala, who will be selling some of her artwork, jewelry, etc. You can find more information, and register for the expo at springfieldgame.com. If you're going to be there, be sure to come see me at my booth!

I just recently moved to a new apartment, which is awesome because that means I have a lot more room for all my art stuff! The bad side is we're still not done unpacking and painting. Things have been a little hectic lately. Since I'll be busy with this, I'm going to go ahead and close commissions until I get all settled in. I'll still be posting artwork here on dA, as well as selling finished things at Dorky Dino and Brandi Miller Art, so if you want something that's already made you can definitely purchase it there.

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


Dorky Dino's fall seasonal items are back in stock! There are cute fall and Halloween themed necklaces and greeting cards and they can all be bought at dorkydino.com. They'll be gone again when the season is over, so be sure to get them soon!

Internship and Feature

Sun Aug 12, 2012, 10:56 AM



My graphic design internship was set to end on the 31st of this month, but on Friday I was offered a second internship! That means I will be able to stay at my internship until November 30th. I'm very excited to be able to stay there longer! I really feel like I am learning a lot. Sorry that I haven't been as active on deviantART recently. I work almost all day at the internship and then when I get home it's usually dedicated to working on commissions, most of which I haven't even posted here yet. I have a lot to post, so look forward to that!

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


I have a friend who does some really amazing artwork, but she hasn't got much attention on deviantART yet. I thought I would share some of her works, so here is a feature of my talented friend Ajala. Please check out her works and if you like them, you should give her a watch so you can see more!

Here are some of her illustrations:

Behind the Scenes

Sat Jul 21, 2012, 6:49 PM



I did a blog post on my blog a while back with some behind the scenes photos and info on my photography. I thought the people here on deviantART might be interested in seeing it, too. Here's the link to the post: brandimiller.wordpress.com/201… It shows what goes into my photography and how I set things up. It could be helpful for photographers, or just interesting to see how I work.

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


I entered another contest at WeReallyLovePhotos, so if you'd like to, you can vote for me in this poll: ladyfataphotography.deviantart…

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


I was tagged again. This time by :iconoatcaker:

Rule #1: You must post these rules.
Rule #2: Each person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
Rule #3: Answer the questions the tagger set for you, and create ten new questions for the people you tag to answer.
Rule #4: You have to choose 5 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
Rule #5: Go to their pages and tell her/him that you have tagged them.   
Rule #6:No tag backs



10 Things About Me:

    1.) I never used to believe this, but I'm pretty sure I'm a workaholic. I tend to take on more than I really should, but it's nice because usually staying busy keeps me motivated.
    2.) I'm on the Internet way more than any person should be.
    3.) I think sushi is really pretty and I love to look at it, and take photos of it, but I can't stand the taste. I'm not a fan of fish, veggies, or white rice.
    4.) I've only ever been to one convention, but I really want to go to more. I just don't have the money for it currently.
    5.) My favorite desserts are actually brownies and rice krispie treats, but I think cupcakes look the cutest.
    6.) I almost never curse. Usually the only time I do is if I'm quoting something.
    7.) I play Dungeons and Dragons, but I have never been a dungeon master because I feel like I don't know enough about it.
    8.) My favorite show right now is Adventure Time.
    9.) My favorite color is green, but I tend to use blue more in my art.
    10.) I love horror video games, but I get really scared when I play them, and can only play them during the daytime when someone else is in the same room as me.


Tagged Questions:

    1.) Does you have a pet, bro?
I have a Shiba Inu named Yoshi, a Red Tailed Boa named Mr. Slitherkins, and two hermit crabs named Captain Scuttles and Crepe.

    2.) Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate!

    3.) There is a worm on the ground, groaning about something. You bend down to hear what he's saying and he spits in your face. TROLOLOL. Now what?
I donate the worm to science. A worm that can not only talk, but can also troll?

    4.) Have you ever watch Fullmetal Alchemist? If you're not Jennifer, you need to watch it now.
Kind of. D= I was watching it on my fiance's computer because he had a digital copy, but his computer crashed and he lost most of his anime! I need to get it again so I can finally finish it.

    5.) If you could instantly learn any language, what would it be?
That is a hard one. Probably either Japanese or German. I think I'd choose Japanese because I'd think it would be harder to learn with the characters and everything.

    6.) One guy has AIDS, the other just lost his leg to a deadly flesh eating disease, who is more unfortunate?
The guy with AIDS is more unfortunate because it's incurable. The guy who lost his leg can still live a long, healthy life.

    7.) Why are you still here?
Still on deviantART, or still answering questions? I'm still on deviantART because I got kind of addicted! I love that it's a place where I can always find new and interesting art, and I love that I can share my art with others and see what they think. I'm still answering questions because they are fun!

    8.) Ever heard of Asperger's Syndrome? YOU HAVE NOW.
Yes, I have! My brother has Asperger's Syndrome.

    9.) You're on an island with a monkey, with nothing to eat. Do you eat the monkey, or do you eat his shit? LOL.
O_o I would probably try to find what the money was eating, because if he can poop he's got to be eating something!

    10.) What do you think of my questions?
They are interesting. lol


Questions for those I am tagging:

    1.) What is your favorite color?
    2.) What color do you use most in your art?
    3.) Why are you on deviantART?
    4.) If you could have any one super power, what would it be?
    5.) If you could be any one person for a day, who would you be?
    6.) What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything?
    7.) Do you cook? Have a favorite recipe you'd like to share? (If you don't cook, share your favorite store bought food.)
    8.) Who is your favorite artist on deviantART?
    9.) Who is your favorite artist outside of deviantART?
    10.) Do you like waffles?

Today I'm doing a feature on :icongrandmathunderpants:, because she was kind enough to give me a premium membership. Thank you! She has really awesome work. I'm always impressed at how small she can do little details! I was watching her do a livestream once, and she was doing giveaways in between sculpting, and I won a cute rainbow unicorn! It is really adorable and the details are amazing! She does giveaways a lot, so definitely watch out for those!

Internship & Etsy News

Thu May 31, 2012, 2:52 PM



I was offered a paid summer internship at a marketing firm! I start my new internship on Monday doing graphic design work. Since it's only for the summer I still need to keep looking for a full time job, but I'm happy to have this as some extra experience. I'm very excited!

On Etsy I can now accept credit and debit cards, which means you can order from me even if you don't have Paypal. Here are my Etsy shops:

Graduation & Published

Mon May 7, 2012, 2:33 PM



I finally graduated from university! My graduation was Saturday and now I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design and a minor in photography. I'm excited to finally be done! Now I'm starting on the job hunt. I currently have a part time job but am looking for a full time job that will hopefully be my new career. I'll have more free time to work on commissions, too, so if you're interested in anything please note me.

I have another awesome announcement! My photograph, "Dungeons and Dragons," was purchased by Open Court Publishing and used for the cover of their new book, "Dungeons and Dragons and Philosophy!" The book comes out this fall and you'll be able to purchase it here.

Don't forget that if you want to own some of my original artwork, you can buy it at my Etsy shop. I added a new print to it recently.

Senior Show & Necklace Chains

Wed Apr 25, 2012, 4:33 PM



At my university we do something called a "senior show" where the graduating art students each get a space in the gallery to show their work. My senior show officially opened today! It features my graphic design portfolio as well as some of my other artwork. I worked really hard on it, so it's great to see it all up and put together. If you're in the Missouri area, feel free to come see it. It's at the Gallery of Art & Design at University of Central Missouri, 217 Clark Street, Warrensburg, MO, 64093. The gallery hours are Monday-Friday 8am - 5pm, Thursday 8am - 8pm, and Saturday 12pm - 4pm. The show will be up until May 4th. If you come by, there's a book for you to sign and leave comments in so I know you came, and you can feel free to take business cards.

Were you interested in ordering a necklace from Dorky Dino, but want a necklace longer than 16"? I now have 18" necklace chains available. If you'd like that with your necklace just put it in your note when you order from Etsy, or contact me for a custom order.

Booth and Portrait Feature

Wed Apr 11, 2012, 7:17 PM



Sorry I haven't been very active on here lately. I'm coming to the end of my very last semester in university and I've been extremely busy! I'm working on final projects in all of my classes, getting ready for graduation, and preparing for my senior show where I will be displaying my portfolio and some of my artwork.

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:



This Saturday (4/14/12) I will have a booth at the Old Drum Festival in Warrensburg, Missouri. It's from 10AM to 6PM at 302 North Main Street. I'll be sharing a booth with Geek Details, so come by and see us both if you're in the area!

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:



Here is the last of my portrait features for now. I'll have something different next time.

Two of my pieces are going to be on display in the gallery's Citation Exhibition at my university. The pieces being shown are "Yoshi Wants ALL the Tennis Balls" and "Dorky Dino Letterhead." They'll be up from March 28th to April 6th. The gallery is in the art building of University of Central Missouri. If you're in the area, stop by to see the work from me and many other student artists.


:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


I'm curious if very many other artists here on dA use Pinterest. I just recently started using it. Do you use it? Do you use it to collect inspiration from other artists or to get ideas for crafts? Do you pin products you want to get, kind of like a wish list? What do you most enjoy pinning? If you're interested, feel free to follow me here.

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


Here is yet another feature of brilliant portrait work. I seemed to have gathered a lot of it.

Published, Stock, Votes, and Feature

Fri Feb 24, 2012, 11:52 AM



I have lots of updates today! I got back from Visioncon on Sunday, and it was a blast! I hope to be able to go to many more conventions after this. They are lots of fun, and great for meeting people!

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


I'm happy to announce I've been published in Gridlock Magazine, an online men's magazine based in the UK. They will be publishing comics from Failure Confetti, my webcomic, and to start off they did an interview with me which can be read here. Read it to learn a little more about me and my art.

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


Some of my photographs have been accepted through the deviantART Stock Project into Fotolia. That means you can purchase my photos for stock use, and I get paid when my photos are used. As of right now, they can't all be found in one place, but I'll list them for you:
"Sushi"
"Cheese Grater"
"Putting the Pieces Together"
"Colorful Crane"
"Autism Spectrum Awareness"
"Sweetie"
"Kiwi"
"Refraction"

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


I heard about a project Picture A Healthier World is doing called Share Your Heart for Haiti and wanted to participate, so I donated my photo "Be True". Soon it will be available for purchase through their website and all proceeds will go to help Haiti. They're also having a contest to see which photo will get the most "likes" and the winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card, and a print of their choice. If you'd like, I'd love if you could vote for my photo by clicking here and then clicking "like". Thank you!

And of course, here's another feature of awesome portrait photography.

I'm going to be attending Visioncon! It is February 17th-19th and located in Springfield, Missouri. I'll be sharing a booth with my friend Amanda from Geek Details, and I'll be selling some of my Dorky Dino products. Will anyone else be at Visioncon? Be sure to come see me! It's my first convention, so I'm extremely excited!

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


I also just listed 6 new products on my Etsy shop, Brandi Miller Art. If you're interested in owning any of my art, be sure to go check it out.

Last time I talked about how I made an Etsy shop for Dorky Dino. Well now I have an Etsy shop for all my other art that is unrelated to Dorky Dino. It can be found at etsy.com/shop/BrandiMillerArt. If you've ever wanted to own any of my art, now is the chance! I'll add new listings as I get time to.

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


I also have some new products available at Dorky Dino. Valentine's Day cards are now available, and you should order soon to get them before Valentine's Day! Two art prints are also now available on the Etsy shop only.

:iconleftlacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::iconpinkbowdivplz::iconmiddlelacedivplz::icontealbowdivplz::iconrightlacedivplz:


Now, my third feature of portraits that I think are very inspirational or well done.
