deviation in storage by Antilamonn
Man, I've been meaning to do this ages ago but I wasn't "ready" to start updating my journal again so I'm doing it now! :D 
It would be cool to introduce myself to new watchers and friends via this, also! :)

Also, for those of you who haven't caught my status update: psyclone and I are engaged! :D :love:

•••

1.  How long have you been on DeviantArt? Ten years this year! :D

2.  What does your username mean? It's my name Grethe and the Fenyx part from my Lady Fenyx screen name put together. I use the same name for my Tumblr and Instagram! :)

3.  Describe yourself in three words. Grumpy, Neurotic, Brilliant.

4.  Are you left or right handed? Both, but predominantly righty.

5.  What was your first deviation?

*sighhhhhhh* :/

6.  What is your favourite type of art to create? I love creating characters for that graphic novel I will finish one day and photography, of course! :)

7.  If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Painting or jewellery design!

8.  What was your first favourite? No idea! :O

9.  What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Mostly fashion photography and digital art.

10.  Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Oh my word, I don't know where to start! I have SERIOUS love for zemotion and Ophelia-Overdose so I will say those two! :heart:

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I know many of my DA friends in real life, but I would love to meet barananduen, lokimymuse, LiveArtBreatheArt and Strangeloved! :heart: :love:

12.  How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I've met some pretty excellent people here, including my now-fiancé psyclone, and I'm very happy with that~! :D :heart:
Otherwise, it's been a complete honour to have gone from a total noob to someone with two DD's since I've gone here - this place is truly testament to my journey in art and photography!

13. What are your preferred tools to create art? My trusty mech pencil and Wacom tablet - I'm a child of the machine world, it seems! ;)

14.  What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Pretty much any place I'm not supposed to, like during classes! I'm not in school or college anymore but that would explain why I did so much drawing back then! :O

15.  What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Meeting cool people like psyclone, sabie, Serve and lycress at boland-za Devmeets in Stellenbosch, as well as making other lifelong friends here. Many people have moved on from here but a big part of the artist I am and the life I have today will be thanks to DA! :)

Artist | Professional | Photography
South Africa

I'm Grethe, from a sleepy hollow of a town way down there in sunny South Africa... :sun:

Although I've been drawing just about my whole life, I studied a three-year degree course in graphic design and photography and obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in graphic design in 2008.
Currently, I work as a professional photographer and image retoucher as well as a professional illustrator on a freelance basis, and on contract for a local publisher.
My illustration clients include Benedic Books and Media, the South African Air Force's National Display Team- The Silver Falcons, and the Albatross Disaster Fund.

I love the colours orange, pink, red, purple, white, blue, yellow and silver, TEA, cats, ducks, aviation (especially military- fighter jets <3) sleeping late, making music and indulging in awesome/nerdery...

Favourite style of art: I'm forever in love with graphic novel drawing and photography... <3
Operating System: Windows 7

OF ROSES : I by GretheFenyx
OF ROSES : I
"The rose is without explanation, she blooms because she blooms." - Angelus Silesius

This shoot is inspired by one of my idols, the inimitable Zhang Jingna / zemotion - an extremely talented woman whose work inspired me to become a photographer, even when it was the last thing on my mind. :heart:

AIMEE : MARCH 2016 : IV by GretheFenyx
AIMEE : MARCH 2016 : IV
I've always wanted to do a rooftop shoot and it's about time I update my editorial portfolio - when the opportunity arose, I went for it not quite knowing what I was letting myself in for. After a lot of back and forth, shoot day finally arrived and I could not be happier with the results! The model is the coolest Alaskan girl and it was so much fun working with her - I hope I get to do so again very soon! :D (Big Grin)

Design for Seralune's Contest! by GretheFenyx
Design for Seralune's Contest!
While I'm busy designing rings (;)) I thought I would take a crack at entering seralune's sterling silver contest!
The concept for both designs are based on phoenixes (of course) and I want a pendant to go with my phoenix ring made for me by biltongboy :) I really do love Labradorite and Obsidian, so I picked both of those for the design!

I hope I win! :heart:
