Welcome to Art by Midknight
My Creative Playground.
Here I post my Graphics, Artwork, and Resources.
For my Graphics I use Photoshop CS6.
I also use ArtRage Studio for most of my digital traditional-style paintings.
Please visit my Tags Page or Memories Page to find my Digital and Traditional Artwork, Fanart and other Fandom Graphics, Icons and Wallpapers, and Brushes and Textures for Photoshop.
I also have a Request Page if there is anything else you'd like to see here, other Fandoms or Resources.
Thank you for visiting and taking a look
My FanArt can also be found on Archive of Our Own
It's taking me longer than I hoped to deal with it, but life happens. I did find an extension for Firefox called Photobucket Embedded Image Fix
that works really well so I can actually see what Icons and pictures that I need to upload into my LJ scrapbook to repost here. I also know there is a similar extension for Chrome too.
The nice thing is that I have a permanent account with 1TB worth of storage that I can use. I realize that not many people come to LJ like they used to, but I want to keep this as at least an archive of all of the graphics and icons I've made over the years.
So anyway, until then I recommend looking into one of the extensions that fix the embed problem. :)
Today, I just received an email from Photobucket that they are now restricting 3rd party hosting. I think just about every icon and other graphics I have posted here over the years are hosted on Photobucket. In order to re-enable the hosting, I would have to pay into a yearly plan costing $399.99usd ($39.99usd per month), which I am unable to afford. So until I can figure out what to do with all of my icons and graphics, anything hosted on Photobucket will be unavailable for the time being. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
ETA: I checked here on JL what kind of storage space I have in my scrapbook, and since I have a permanent acct, I should have more that enough space to move everything here, but it will take time and I'm not sure when I will have a chance to get it done. Then having to edit each post and figure out what goes where. This will have to be a project I will have to set aside the time to do.
I know, another something crocheted. I know I need to do more artwork, fanart, ect, because that is what this LJ is for, but this is really exciting news for me :D

I have my very first published pattern! I was contacted by the editor of Knitsy Magazine last month asking to feature my Dragon Scale Head Kerchief, which started out as a WordPress Exclusive Pattern, in the next issue of their magazine and here it is ready for download! You can read the issue online and download individual patterns, or download the entire issue onto your iPhone!
You can see it here online: Knitsy Issue #25 at mycraftacademy
or here at the App Store: Knitsy App
Dragon Scale Head Kerchief
The Issue now costs $3.99
to purchase, it was free for the first month after it was initially published, but you can still get my Dragon Scale Head Kerchief Pattern
on my WordPress Page
! The Issue is still worth purchasing for all of the other wonderful crochet and knit patterns it has!
I've been taking a bit of a break from drawing to focus on my crochet right now and this is another one that I am particularly proud of. I actually made this last year, but my daughter just took these photos for me recently for a publication.
I do have the patterns available for both the shrug and head kerchief.
Pattern for the head kerchief can be found for free HERE
at my WordPress
Pattern for the shrug can be purchased HERE
I wanted to share this here also, because I am rather proud of the way it turned out. There is no written pattern, it all came from my head, except for a stitch pattern bible for inspiration for a stitch pattern called Fairy Shell that is used in the hood and front panels. The Crocodile Stitch, which is also known as Dragon scale, used in the main body and part of the hood, I learned how to do a year ago from a tutorial online, but I have my own technique on how I do it now and I have since wrote my own tutorials
For more information about this shrug, you can reaad about it on Crochet by Midknight (starrs_crodream
If you're intersted in a similar shrug, I have a pattern for purchase HERE
for the orignal Dragon Scale Shrug.
