I am now a Senior Member

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 8, 2013, 12:10 PM
I am now a Senior Member!

I am now 'VianaArts ;)  (with a tick!)

A year and a half ago I started my account to share what I do and to learn from other artists, see what they have to share. That is still true.

A week later I got a Daily Deviation for this work:

Palace garden in Kyoto, Japan, Bic Ballpoint Pen by VianaArts

Eight months later I got another one, for the Redhead Girl, the drawing went super viral all over the internet, starting a meteoric ascension of my fame, something I could never fathom even in my wildest dreams.

Redhead Girl - Ballpoint Pen by VianaArts

Yahoo.com, Scientific American Mind magazine, Huffington Post, and literally millions of other blogs and websites mention me now. A Google search for "Samuel Silva Artist" returns more than 12 million results. An honor that is both humbling and at the same time amazing to me.

And now, a year and a half later I was promoted to Senior member.

I just want to thank all my watchers, my friends and fans, whoever they are and wherever they are, a big thank you from your friend in Art,


Sincerely,

Samuel Silva - 'VianaArts

parabéns! O seu trabalho é indiscritivelmente excepcional. Você merece cada menção e cada comentário positivo nos seus trabalhos. Tanta paciência e dedicação à arte merece ser recompensado.
Com tudo isso, você pensa em algum dia talvez se dedicar apenas à carreira artística?

Muito obrigado pelo seu comentário! Não sei se algum dia me dedicarei totalmente á arte em termos profissionais.
Mas nunca a abandonarei. Será sempre um bom extra fazer exposicoes e vender trabalhos. :hug:

De nada.:heart:
Que bom, isso significa que a gente sempre vai ter mais dos seus lindos trabalhos.:D 
E por favor avise sempre que fizer exposições ou for em eventos!^^ tenho certeza que tem muita gente quer ver seu trabalho e te conhecer pessoalmente (inclusive eu XD sou do Brasil mas visito a Europa de vez em quando, então quem sabe um dia?)
Continue com os trabalhos incríveis. ^^ Graças à sua arte fiquei com vontade de comprar umas canetas bic esferográficas coloridas e tentar crosshatching no seu estilo XD

Aliás, eu tenho uma curiosidade: o fato de você ser advogado te ajuda a saber o que fazer se você tem problemas com a sua arte (como pessoas tentando usar ilegalmente e tal)? Porque eu sei que muitos artistas que tem problemas assim nunca sabem o que fazer, até porque poucos tem conhecimento jurídico pra tal, e assim ficam desesperados.

Não se preocupe, quando eu expuser alguma coisa eu aviso aqui na minha pagina. Vou fazer entre 10 a 15 trabalhos para esse efeito. Tenho muitas encomendas para fazer e alem disso os meus desenhos demoram uma eternidade a fazer. Um deles esta exposto no café Van Gogh em Madrid, se visitar pode ver la.

O facto de ser advogado já ajudou em algumas ocasiões. Também já dei conselhos a muitos artistas que me procuram aqui com perguntas. Na maioria dos casos os websites que alojam as imagens não querem problemas legais, por isso uma notificação DMCA normalmente resulta. Mas também já tive de mobilizar vários artistas para forcar um perpetrador a fechar um site privado onde este vendia trabalhos (prints) como se fossem dele.

I love your inking, and have been staring at it for a long time. Did you draw it very large? Do you use grids?

I've always wondered what the little symbols next to people's names mean!

I tried looking through the faq and help pages but couldn't find much, had to search the forum Then search the Results to find someone's Post in a Forum Thread linking to it!  FAQ #106: What are the symbols in front of each deviants nickname?  This is the kind of thing I think new members would like to learn about, I don't remember having ever seen it!

Well done. Your technique is truly unique and your online fame truly unparalleled. It is a great achievement to not only create flawless work, but to get it recognized is another dimension altogether. Ballpoint artists should lay their pens down to you, as it would symbolize how you have written your own destiny from a blank sheet; as you have brought together molecules that would normally be fated to being screwed up into a ball on a piece of office paper, but of which you have exalted into Masterpieces that will be around for years to come.
