"Time-consuming endeavors" as I like to call it~ If you add up all the time I've spent on each piece of work, it adds up to a lot of time out of my life. But I enjoy each and every one like they're my offspring. :D

I :heart: comments and take time out of my day to individually reply to each one of them. It's like getting mail from friends that you don't know you have yet! :meow:

Thank you for viewing!

1. Is Lumina Astri your real name?
It's my pen name. In Latin, it means, "The Light of the Stars". My full name "Lumina Blinn Astri", the "Blinn" refers to the twinkling noise that stars make.

2. What is it with your obsession with mushrooms?
Luminous Mushroom is simply a username I picked it back in the day when I wanted something unique but also something that meant something that shines out in the dark. "Luminous Mushroom" happened when I was exasperated that all the other MSN usernames were taken. lol Lumina Astri is a name I picked out much later since I also have a love of stars. :)

3. What do you use to draw? I bet they must be super expensive or something...
I think art is an investment that you have to be willing to make. It's expensive when you look at the price tag, but if you look at it as you're paying for every day that you use it, it doesn't seem as pricey. I use Copic Sketch Markers, Copic Multi-Liner, Sakura Micron Ink Pens, Shin Han watercolors, Adobe Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet, Pentel Technical Pencils, Staedler or Tombow erasers, and sometimes cheap acrylic paints and brushes.

4. So exactly, how do you draw?
Would you also like me to explain how I breathe, sleep, and eat? Although tutorials are always good references, I feel they are quite inadequate as drawing is all about getting a feel for doing it. You DON'T get any better just by reading about how another person does it. You've just gotta go out and try it yourself! :nod:

5. Do you check your Notes often? Sometimes I send stuff to you and sometimes you don't reply...
I actually read all the Notes that people send me and I'm usually good about giving adequate replies. If I don't get back to you, it is either because:
a) the note was very rude.
b) I overlooked it accidentally.
c) I forgot about it after I read it.
I try to get back to you to the best of my ability!

6. Do you mind if I Watch you?
Not at all. If I did mind, I would have already blocked you. LOL

7. I commented, but you are not replying to it?
I read all Comments and Replies and do my best to reply to each of them! I'm just very forgetful and look things over very often which is why I miss some things. If it is a one-word comment or stupid statement, I usually do not reply to those.

8. Will you be my friend?
I am a shy person and don't add people to my DA Friend's list that easily (especially if I don't know you in real life). Feel free to shoot me messages and talk to me though! I like to make friends. :)

9. Are you Japanese?
I get this question many times in real life and on the Internet. Sometimes I even get asked if I'm half-Japanese, half-Korean. But the answer is: No, I am not Japanese. I am 100% Korean. Online as my persona Lumina Astri, I am from Mycena which is a city located high in the mountains.

10. How old are you really? I am sure you are not 188 years old as you say you are...
I used to live in Corvida, the City of Magpies before I moved to Mycena, The City of Luminescence. On the continent of Endeavor, we live a very long time. But if you really are a technical person, of course I'm not 188 years old in the real world! That would make me a pile of dust!

11. Do you prefer traditional or digital works?
Nowadays, I prefer doing traditional works to digital, but I do use Photoshop to edit some things on my traditional works before posting them here.

12. How are you?
I'm fine. lol And/or sleeping. I can never get enough sleep!

13. Do you actually look like how you draw yourself?
My drawings of myself do bear somewhat of a semblance to me, actually. It's just that I don't have purple hair. lol

14. What is your opinion on art thieves?
I've had run-ins with them at times. It's a convoluted, obnoxious job when you're trying to fix things with art thieves. A.K.A. NO I DON'T LIKE THEM.

15. Do you do Requests?
**AS OF NOW I NO LONGER TAKE REQUESTS. SORRY.** Please check my request status on my page for free slots. I do not suggest you ask me for a Request if you are an impatient person for I am a procrastinator. Just FYI.

16. Do you take Commissions?
YES!! Please check here for more information on Commissions! :D

17. Can I have your MSN?
I don't own an MSN account. lol~ I know, crazy, huh? I just don't feel like I need it. If you want to contact me, send me a note. I check DA every day. :D


Lumina Blinn Astri
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
|NAME| Lumina Blinn Astri
|AGE| 119
|LOCATION| L.M. 888 Glowurm Avenue, Mycena
|BIO| I was born from an egg but that's only half of it. I am also born from stardust and ambition. I live in a beautiful city called Mycena, The City of Luminescence, a town made up of giant glowing mushrooms. I was formerly known as Kkachii Starlet living in Corvida, The City of Magpies, before I moved here. I moved because I felt so stifled in Corvida and wanted to chase my dreams of becoming an artist. What better place to feel inspired than in a place where everything glows like magic?

100 Themes Challenge Re-boot

Tue Jun 10, 2014, 12:32 AM
Well, my original 100 Themes Challenge is getting buried under many, many Journal entries. Plus, it's outdated since I've edited the list to match my tastes more and I needed to make a new article anyway. This is what I'll be referring to when I have those, "I want to draw something, but don't know what to draw" days.

Don't worry. I'll be posting the ones I do finish as I go along so you don't have to scramble to find them in my gallery~

As always please feel free to suggest which one I ought to do next. I'm not doing these in any particular order. Some I'm more keen on doing than others. I think for the next several deviations, I will stick with this list because at the rate I'm going at, I won't finish this until the day I'm on my deathbed. lol

Thank you for your interest in my works.
I truly want to become a great illustrator someday.
