Random Favourites

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?

 Asswhippin' by GretheFenyx
 
*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! :)

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...

KRISTALL by GretheFenyx
KRISTALL
Going through a really shitty time with work at the moment and I now have a lovely bout of creative block that I get to deal with as a result of it. *sigh*
Here's a new edit of an old shoot from a few months ago.

FIFTY SHADES OF LOKI by GretheFenyx
FIFTY SHADES OF LOKI
Some Friday afternoon Loki drawings because I missed my HiddlesLoki feels and my fiancé had found me new drawing software, Krita. I tried drawing Loki in Krita, but it didn't go so well - it doesn't seem to like high res files all that much and the interface is a bit clunky, especially if you're used to Photoshop's interface. :/ So, I ended up going back to Photoshop for this since I had to install a newer version anyway so I could my fancy new retouching tools! :D 

So here's an afternoon with fifty shades of Loki. :)

STEPHANIE : MAY 2016 by GretheFenyx
STEPHANIE : MAY 2016
My lovely friend Moira / ridstar let me borrow her 85mm lens over the weekend as I'm currently in two minds about my next lens investment. Said investment is still a long way off, but I like to "try before I buy" when it comes to camera equipment, as I hate hype. So yesterday, I took some quick test shots outside during golden hour with my friend's cousin Stephanie and I am mighty, mighty impressed with the magnificent 85mm - the stellar reviews are bang on! :)

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:
