Ellen Stefany Franša de Carvalho
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art


Manga/Anime Community Volunteer

I'm Ellen (aka Gwen) and I'm your Community Volunteer alongside cinyu for the Manga/Anime gallery. As CV, I have the honor of featuring Daily Deviations, so if you see a piece of art you think it should be featured, don't hesitate to send me a note with your suggestion!:heart:
FAQ #61: What is a Daily Deviation?
FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

I'm a 19-year-old girl born, raised and living in Brazil. Among my interests are: my love for manga/anime, traditional art, reading books, rainbows, hair, food, videogames and an unhealthy obssession for buying art materials.:B
I love deviantART, this place means a lot to me. This account is one of the most important things I have, and these five years I've spent on dA changed my life completely in many ways. Here I have made wonderful friends, found people who helped me improving my art enormously, and here on dA I found my love, the most important person of my life, namenotrequired.:heart:
I'm also really happy with my achievements. On January 1st, 2011 I became Senior Member, on April 2nd, 2011 I got a Deviousness Award and on September 3rd,2013 I became a Community Volunteer for my beloved M/A gallery. I couldn't be happier.:D
On my art life, I draw since I was small, but I started drawing in the Manga/Anime style roughly nine years ago, and I intend into following a career directly related to Art. (:

Thank you all so much for entering! :D (Big Grin)

A LITTLE F.A.Q BEFORE WE GET STARTED :iconjumpingla-plz:

  • How does this work?
    Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it La la la la

  • Is Fan Art or Fan Characters allowed?
    I'm afraid not :( (Sad) Only Original Characters and universes are allowed. Your Naruto based OC, for example, isn't elligible to enter or win.

  • Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
    Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.
Alright! La la la la Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness! 

AUGUST'S CONTEST: Cages! :iconbummy3:

For this month's theme the theme is Cages!  For this contest your anime-styled character(s) need to be depicted in an illustration involving cages, be it with your character imprisioned in one, or them in the background, or in any other way... as long as your artwork depicts a scene involving cages, the sky's the limit for your creativity! :D (Big Grin)

RULES :iconweekenddanceplz:

  • Entries must abide by deviantART's Terms of Service and Policies.
  • Entries must be made specifically for this contest. Pre-existing works won't be accepted.
