Hey guys.

It's been quite a while since the last update.
As I've gotten quite the number of concerned messages over time, I wanted to let you know that I'm still alive. I'm doing okay, as far as my current health situation allows it. 
As far as my creative process goes, I'm doing great. I've been experimenting with various art types and painting styles, and it feels like that alone already allows for more freedom of expression.

It might probably be another while before I regain the time, confidence, and (mainly) energy to frequently update, reply, and share with the world again. But I hope you'll be able to bear with that.

To those that sticked around for so long...

I wish you happy holidays and all the best for 2015.
May your artistic ability's (and all life quality's) far exceed those of 2014.

Keep rocking! :happybounce: 


It's been a while since I was online. I hope you're all doing fine.
I'd like to wish you all happy holidays. Let's make 2015 an even more awesome year! :)
Looking at my old favorites makes me realize how many of those artists already have gone inactive over the years T__T 
It turned out to be Chrome after all, their newest version being buggy. Luckily this fixed the issue for me; 
Did DeviantArt just change their font or is it the Chrome update acting weird? Something looks different today.
Let's see if this 'newsfeed' thing can actually be useful. 
Any must read artbooks you guys can recommend to me? 
I feel like writing again. Like... a whole novel... or something like that ~__~

Damai Mikaz [dah-mahii mii-kas]

Also known on the internet as DamaiMikaz or Mikaz -- the nickname I've been using since my early days on the internet, somewhere around 2002. Originally I used the nickname Mikaz, which was derived from an RP character I used to roam the Dutch forums with. As the internet expanded, however, and more and more nicknames were taken by default, I added Damai as a prefix as a reference to my real name; Damaris.

I'm artist in the broadest sense of the word. Despite what my DeviantArt gallery might make you think, I'm involved in many disciplines of art. Like illustration, writing, graphic- and webdesign. While I work as a professional webdesigner and webdeveloper in real life, I don't show much of my web related work here, mostly for the reason that I can't publish everything I make for clients directly. Aside from that, DeviantArt is a thing I do for fun, so I prefer to keep it about my personal projects.

In contrary to what many people seem to think: I'm not a professional Illustrator -- which basically comes down to the fact that I don't do illustration for money. I never even took commissions, and I'm not planning to do so either. Illustration is, like writing, something I do for fun alone.

In real life I'm currently working as a webdeveloper. Which means I'm a huge nerd (A real one. One who knows how to program) that enjoys messing around with computers and actually enjoys the process of programming web applications. I have a huge interest in everything tech- and especially web-related, including internet culture, trends and phenomenons and social media. Basically anything web-related catches my interest.

If you have anything to say to me: please comment or note me. It might take a while, since the number of messages I get a day has gotten to the point that it's almost an extra job to keep up with. It takes me a lot of time to get through, but don't worry. I will get to it eventually. And even if I don't reply, know that I've read your message and that I appreciate your kind words.

Also, please refrain from begging for requests and/or point donations. I lack time, so I don't do those.

Have a nice day!
~ Damai Mikaz
