Czech Republic
Hi, my name's Martina, I live in the Czech Republic and I study Biology at the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague.
I have two big passions and that's watching birds and drawing (especially fantasy stuff as dragons ... and birds, of course :)). I'm just an amateur, but lately, I try to spend as much time practising as possible, 'cause I wanna get better and better :eager:. If you see something that's off in some of my works, don't hesitate to tell me so I don't repeat that mistake next time :aww:
And thank you for stopping by :)

Current Residence: Prague, Czech republic
Favourite genre of music: soundtracks, classical music, christmas carols, or whatever I like...
Personal Quote: What can't be achieved by force, can be achieved by even greater force!

Hi, I know I'm still not very active here on Deviantart, except for perhaps adding the new pictures when I finish them, but I thought a little journal update was in order.

The exam period just passed, being the historically first one for me when I had no exams at all :) The new semester is here, though, and my last (but certainly not easy) two exams are slowly approaching...

While I didn't have to study much, I spent my days drawing and working on other school stuff, and of course, doing karate :)
There was this great weekend seminar near Prague in January with seven masters from England who came to teach us. The training was great and the evening drinking with them, too (although one of the senseis got me drunk more than I'd want to :D). The atmosphere was very friendly, in fact so friendly that we earned an invitation to come to England and stay and train at the dojos of the two teachers. Which is an offer we're planning to take up :meow:
It always amazes me how these people with high rank are so friendly even towards beginners like me.

Seminar with guests from Liverpool - with the participants from Prague dojo (I'm the girl with an orange belt on the left).

And to uphold the tradition, at the end of February, people from our club (and others, but not with much attendance) with their families went to the mountains for a winter karate camp. It's been a looong time since I went skiing, and this year I decided to try the cross-country. It was surprisingly fun (so much more then with my previous over-30-year-old skis that didn't exactly work the way I wanted them to, anymore). But of course, my technique could still use some work :D
Apart from skiing there was a training every day. We also played voleyball, basketball, fotball, dodge ball and table tennis as there was a gym at the place we were staying. Then needed some time to relax at the welness centre and spent the evenings playing board games. I'm really looking forward to more camps like that :aww:

Cross-country skiing group (I'm there with the checkered pink jacket) :)

In the meantime I try to work on my diploma thesis and I'm drawing quite a lot, with a goal to save for some trips abroad. There are so many opportunities and so many things I'd like to do! The closest one is a weekend seminar in Wroclav, Poland, which is close to our borders, fortunately. I'll also be going to Croatia just as last year and probably visiting the England dojo in Liverpool in July to train. But unfortunately I'm unlikely to be able to visit my friend who studies there through Erasmus right now, because by that time, he'll be back in Prague :(. At the same time there was a possibility to go study birds to Chukotka at the Russia's far east, but I don't think I'll be chosen to go, as it's quite late to organise it. :(
I've also been reminded by a friend (ornithologist) that he invited me to the United Arab Emirates to watch birds with him. Which totally wouldn't be bad, either! :D Maybe some day...
Another trip that would be awesome, but probably beyond my reach, is the European karate camp in Spain this summer. I think I'm going to miss this annual event again, because I'm determined to save enough money to go directly to Okinawa next year to train at the birtplace of karate and see the Grand master and visit the Honbu dojo ...A little dream of mine :aww:
And I would really love to visit an Oriental country such as Japan! Not that I know too much about the culture and history, but it keeps fascinating me :aww:

I love the realistic bird art on your page.  Are you available for commissions?  I need some realistic digital images of birds for a project we are doing.  I don't want to share much on your public page, but if you would email me I would be glad to tell you about it.  Thanks!
