Meadowknight's Profile Picture
Meadowknight
Angela
United States
I'm a 34 year old self taught traditional artist (aside from a couple life drawing classes), and I am currently working as a contract artist for Safari Ltd. sculpting, painting and doing a tiny bit of design work for them (spring 2015 to present), and I am also a independent toy maker on the side working on my own franchise.

I do know some digital art in Photoshop and Zbrush (and love it so far!), but I haven't been able to invest the time into furthering my ability with it yet since my main work demand is still traditional. It's something I really want to make time for though as soon as I'm able, as I really enjoy it and don't want to be pigeon holed as a traditional artist only.

Life has gotten extremely busy for me so I haven't been as active on here as I used to be. If you want to buy any of my personal independent work, I list it in two different stores! Pendants can be found in my etsy shop here --> www.etsy.com/shop/Meadowknight… And my independent toy work can be found in my Storenvy here --> meadowknight.storenvy.com/ . The fastest way to contact me is by email at meadowknight@yahoo.com as I am not on Deviant Art as much anymore. God bless!

Wow, I just checked my Deviant Art and I haven't submitted a journal entry since 2015. Life has changed quite a bit since then! So here's a entry if anyone is still paying attention after all this time, lol. Sorry I haven't been very active on here over the past few years, even before 2015...I think a lot of my journals are starting to contain that apology as life gets busier, and busier :P

Art stuff! I am super busy still doing contract sculpting and painting for Safari Ltd. (I'm designing, sculpting and painting something fanciful at the moment, which I can't reveal until it gets produced! But I'm very excited! This piece is a childhood dream come true! :D ). Since contract work comes and goes I'm not sure how much more I'll be doing for them, the work could last just through this summer, or for a few years...I'm just seeing how things go, and keeping options open. Aside from Safari stuff I have work lined up with my toy maker mentor, which will also see overseas (China) factory production, though it's independent and not a corporate project like Safari work. I am suuuuper stoked about that, and it may open some doors for my more personal work seeing overseas production in the near future! My fingers are crossed, I seem to be happiest when I can use my imagination. Sometimes you can do that on corporate stuff, but usually not. Some of my first Safari Ltd. animal sculpts have hit their online shop, and possibly some specialty stores, so I can now reveal a few of those sculpts (some are pending a 2018, and possibly a 2019 release). I have not had time to submit them to DA, but I've begun to put together a Facebook artist page that has all my safari stuff up that I can show for the time being. I have actually done a LOT of paint, and repaint work for them as well, but I only include the pieces I also sculpted on my Facebook page. I will be adding personal work on there as soon as I have more free time in a week or so [link] . I also still run a couple online shops selling original/personal work...some of my cartoony mini figure toys can be found here meadowknight.storenvy.com/ , and my sculpted/cast pendants can be found here www.etsy.com/shop/Meadowknight… . Everything in both stores is cast in an extremely durable resin from my original sculpts, I don't use brittle casting materials unless otherwise noted. I also bought a new pressure pot last spring, so that's made casting so much easier not having to use the crappy cheapo one anymore!

My personal life is going pretty great for the most part! On the crappy side of things I found out I need some EXPENSIVE dental work done, which sucks, but my insurance is covering the wisdom teeth I need pulled which is good at least. Aside from some financial stress the dental has brought about, God is providing contract work to cover it, and I have the most amazing boyfriend I could ever have imagined. He is such an amazing person, and treats me like gold...I have never felt so cherished by someone other than my parents. I am totally humbled. It's still a little early but we both think there's a very good chance this will lead to marriage, I've never had this much confidence in a bond. There have been some happy tears, I'll just say that, lol. I don't care if I'm being corny, it's like a dream come true, I can't even believe it. He inspires me to be a better woman, and makes any other troubles I have feel so insignificant because of how lucky I am to have someone so amazing. If I'm having a bitchy day I literally feel ashamed because I think of how awesome my boyfriend is, lol. That's when you really know someone is right for you, when you both bring out the better in each other, and both of you feel secure with no drama erupting, EVER. My current profile pic on here is he and I, for my buddies here who care to see my dude. Some old friends here know I've had some rough years with things just not panning out. For anyone reading this who's hurting or unfulfilled romantically...my 2 cents; try putting God first, and asking Him to pick someone out for you, instead of trying to pick someone out entirely on your own. I won't get into details here, but there is real power in prayer, and there's no way we'd have met if not for God, and God's perfect timing. Don't give up hope, there is someone for everyone who longs for somebody. Ask God for that person because most of the time we don't know who we need, or who's best for us until we find them, and for some of us that's like finding a needle in a stack of needles. If you're chasing someone who's noncommittal...give it up, save yourself the heartache! The right person will chase you back, and chase you hard, WHEN you need them to...and communication is KEY. Don't waste time with people you don't communicate good with either, poor communication causes a slew of issues. Why am I giving random advice here? Because I know a lot of people out there have cracks in their hearts, so many that there's a chance some of those people might read this journal. I'm 34, I've been single forever, I've been hurt, I've hurt others... so I get it. Please trust God guys...He knows exactly who your soulmate is, chances are you need help finding that person because most of us don't even know what kind of person that is. I'm not some all knowing romance advice girl here, but you've got nothing to lose testing this advice...and hey, it's a public "journal"...this is where we can share our thoughts, if you don't like em', that's fine, go read something else, lol.

Thanks for reading guys, and for comments/notes I haven't replied to...I'm sorry, I've just got a lot going on right now...boyfriend, family, travel, work, events, geckos (my baby dragons need my care, lol). On a side note I'm still getting a lot of comments/requests on older work....if something is from 2010 or older there's a good chance I've lost interest in the piece/s, and/or I no longer produce it. For anyone interested in following my work I've been a bit more active on Facebook, or email me at meadowknight@yahoo.com with questions. PLEASE NOTE THOUGH: I am not currently taking on anymore contract work/commissions at this time, if that changes I'll include it in an updated journal entry. I also for the most part avoid commissions with individuals now as my rates have gone up (most sculpts I make $500-$2000 on to give you an idea), and my availability is almost nonexistent between paid work and personal. If you are unsure though, you can email me to touch bases. I will always give things consideration since sometimes my schedule will open up. I check email a few times a day, spammers will get blocked though.

Me and my awesome boyfriend
I have been VERY inactive on this site for the past year or so mostly due to being extremely busy with contract assignments, so I'm not even sure who all is still paying attention to my rare uploads here...but for the few who are this photo is just kinda a "I'm doing great!" update for anyone who cares. Life's been rough for me over the years and some of you have seen that more than happy stuff. So here's some happy stuff :)

I've been single for years, and just this spring (2016) met Frank on Facebook through another friend. It's been lonely and frustrating for a long time for me, and I know tons of people have been through the same thing...sometimes meeting the right person is like finding a needle in a stack of needles! Some of you REALLY know what I'm talking about, and have been through way worse. But hey, pain is pain, it's not fair to compare.

I prayed very hard this new years that things would change and boy have they....God practically catapulted Frank at me out of the blue, and I am so happy! This feels extremely stable too unlike past relationships. For anyone reading who's still single, and sick of being single...if you can find it in your heart to give the loneliness to God, and ask Him to bring someone into your life, He'll hear you and He'll answer the prayer in HIS timing. The relationship I'm in now...I'm 34 and I've wanted this type of relationship (no drama, and just full of love, romance, and security) since I was 18, sometimes it takes years. So be patient. For those reading this who don't believe in God, you can totally ignore me, I'm just sharing what I believe to be real (no hateful or rude comments please). 

As for the photo itself...I'm not supposed to be a character, my mom just sewed me a very cool dress that's a cross between a costume and modern clothes. Frank's dressed as Hook from Once Upon a Time though (and I'm not complaining ;) ). The photo was taken in New Hampshire by Lake Winnipesaukee . I have a pirate costume too, but I couldn't bring it on the plane with me, this was easier to take with.

Crested Gecko Moonglow FOR SALE!
This is one of my most recent pendant designs. I absolutely love crested geckos! Yes I know the "moonglow" morph is a myth, this is kinda poking fun at that...while at the same time being a very cool glow in the dark crested gecko pendant! They can be found in my shop, here-->www.etsy.com/shop/Meadowknight… . If it's showing as inactive or sold out shoot me a message through etsy, you cna message me here in a note through DA but I am not on here much anymore. These pieces sell out every time I put them up for sale, so get them while you can!

I cast these from my original sculpt in an insanely durable polyurethane resin, and mix glow in the dark pigment into the pre cured resin! Afterward I apply a black paint wash to make the details pop, and then apply a protective gloss clear coat! The glow in the dark white pigment is some of the coolest glow powder I have come across...I love it!

Pirate costume! Photo taken 6,25,2016
New costume! Roughly based off Milah from Once Upon a Time (not cosplaying her though, her character is too horrible of a person, lol)

My mom sewed this gorgeous costume! She is SO talented! The hat, and leather vest I bought at Ren Fair, I sculpted/molded/cast the medallion (I have some for sale here ->  www.etsy.com/shop/Meadowknight…), and I glued like 100 or more swovarski studs to the sleeves of the blouse! I may actually change up the costume and wear it with a half corset instead of this vest though (how it's meant to be worn). Amazingly Joanne's had a almost identical pattern of her outfit without claiming to be a Once Upon a Time pattern. It's weird because I THINK she only wears it in ONE episode when she gets killed. For anyone interested who's actually reading my babble here, here's a shot of Milah to show what I'm talking about--> s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/o…

As a little girl growing up I always loved pirate stuff! I was obsessed with the old Sinbad movies, I had bath toys, lego pirates, I loved Wesley, and still do :P... (AKA The Dread Pirate Roberts) in the Princess Bride, I loved The Pirates of Darkwater cartoon when I was like 9, and the film Hook (I watched that over and over...the one with Dustin Hoffman, and Robin Williams). But then the Pirates of the Caribbean films hit and  I got put off. I literally forgot I liked pirate stuff until a few months ago, LOL! I like those films now but it was just so in my face everywhere that I got sick of it. 

My appreciation for the over-romanticised theme (seriously pirates were probably disgusting in reality!) got rekindled by the ABC show Once Upon a Time. I absolutely LOVE the wardrobe in that show...and I LOVE Captain Hook! The casting is just fantastic, everyone does such a great job. Basically thanks to Hook being such a cool character, my memory healed, and I can enjoy pirate-y stuff again, lol.

Treasure of the Deep FOR SALE!!
Brand new design! This piece is very bold, unique, and very detailed. With how popular nautical themed costuming is, I was very surprised when I couldn't find anything sea serpent related while putting together a pirate costume for myself. I decided to do something about that! These are a perfect final touch for your Labyrinth Ball of Jareth, Renaissance Faire, Pirate festival, cosplay, or Halloween costume! You can find them for sale in my shop here -> www.etsy.com/shop/Meadowknight…

Sorry I haven't been posting much guys! Contract work is keeping me so busy I have almost no time for personal work currently, but I'll try to post a little more regularly...and I should be able to share some of my contract projects by 2017, and 2018 as they are publically announced.

Well it's really neat, thank you again! Did you ever get a Big Rad Wolf mini figure from me? If not I need to send you one, I recently FINALLY remade his mold. :)
