watchers and members for their amazing images!   
I'm a nature and animal lover and therefore I would like to show you some animal pictures in ice and snow.

It's the most wonderful time
I was asked the other day what is the worst present I have ever been given. When I looked back I discovered that I have very little recall of presents that I have had. My memories of Christmas as a child are not about presents. They are about our family being together and of food. Sitting around the dining table which was loaded to groaning point with Turkey, roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings, hot stuffing, carrots, parsnips, brussel sprouts and thick gravy. There was plenty of food and we could eat until we popped. This was followed after a discreet interval by a steamed Christmas pudding with custard or cream. You had to be careful eating the pudding as it had six pence coins and three pence coins in it. The idea was it was a gift for you if you were lucky enough to find one but you tried not to swallow one :) 
What was most amazing about this meal was that we never normally ate anything like this. This was special food for a special time and I'm sure my parents had to save all

Winter Art Feature!
Hello everyone!  I just wanted to thank everyone for welcoming me back to DA! I really appreciate it, I have missed all my amazing watchers and I really hope in the future I can keep posting on here, in reality I have been neglecting my art of late, which isn't something that I am proud of since its such an important part of my life.
Anywho, I want to do a quick feature of some freakin amazing  art that I stumbled upon recently!
I hope you all enjoy and give these AMAZING artists a watch!! 
I am also thinking about doing a quick contest, let me know what you think!

Dripping Wet
Some type of frog, not sure which one exactly and I'm feeling too lazy to start by googling 'green frog' ;p As always, feel free to educate me --> update: identified as a White Lipped Waxy Tree Frog by :iconkole87: Thanks for your input!


Animal tribal tattoos
For the mentioned price you can give me all the details you want (tattoo size, animal you'd like to be in the design, the pose the animal should have, where on your body you want the tattoo so I can make it follow the natural shape of the body etc.). I'll then make a first design, either in pencil or as a digital sketch and send it to you for comments. Afterwards, I'll rework the design to suit your comments, and show it again for approval. The second time around I'll only change detail work. Finally I'll ink the design after having done the final tweaks to it and send you a high quality scan in a format of your choosing. I also promise I will not allow any other person to use the design, so you have a guaranteed unique design, and I will watermark the design when showing it on DA or another website (see for example the wolf tattoo on the far right of the widget).

The listed price is for average sized tattoos like the ones in the examples and includes several feedback stages to ensure the design is 100% to your liking. If you are looking for very small or very large designs, please contact me first.
Pencil/digital sketch (portrait)
Pencil sketched or digitally sketched character portrait. Please provide a reference and/or clear description.
Pencil/digital sketch (full body)

Nikki van de Pol
I was born in 1988 in Belgium and also still live there. I speak Dutch, English, French and a bit of German and thanks to my studies I am also proficient in Latin and have some knowledge of Ancient Greek. I love metal music, and you can frequently find me at concerts and festivals, but that doesn't mean I don't listen to other genres. Art-wise, I mainly focus on photography, with a preference for animal/macro/nature photography although I diligently serve as photographer for my husband's band Everglow as well. Recently, I've been venturing into photomanipulation too and it's my secret wish to be able to design a CD booklet one day. I also regularly make tribal tattoo designs of animals in my own unique style. Other drawings, both digital and traditional are uploaded more sporadically, since my job rarely allows me enough time. I occasionally dabble in writing as well. The art aside, my hobbies are skiing, tennis, dancing, hiking, reading, watching loads of movies and playing with my dog Luca. I currently work at KU Leuven as an FWO-fellow (PhD) in English diachronic linguistics.
