2015 art summary

Considering how un-well I was last year, I did improve quite a bit but not as much as I would have liked and might not have completed as much of what I intended, but at least I didn’t go backwards and that has to be a good thing.

1. Carrying on with the resolutions from last year - (e.e- Continue on improving);

a. Draw more studies

b. Do another 30 day art challenge if I find something I like

2. Make some mini comics (I will make some this year! I will! . . I said that last year ^^;)

3. Make adoptables (. . .this one too . . . heh)

4. Enter more contests,

5. Work on some personal projects;

a. Lovell & Iven’s Story

b. Other secret ones - I have many ideas :)

6. Market myself more,

7. Take part in more events,

8. Re-open commissions

9. Add more work to my online stores

10. Read and write more

11. Do livestream and/or speedpaint videos

12. And that there are more that I can’t really remember at the moment ^^;

Hopefully I can achieve a great deal of these, but I will definitely work hard :)

Absence

Sorry for the sudden disappearance over the past few days but guess whose laptop decided it didn't want to be a laptop any more :D :D Mine! My laptop is about 5 years old now, and I know I should most likely get a new one pretty soon, but I like the fact that I can fix it, but on the other hand I know it's slowly ticking towards total breakdown and being unreliable.

I can fix my computer and I manage to get it somewhat up and running with in about a day, but it had corrupted Google chrome, iTunes and paint tool SAI, and because of my poor internet connection at home I struggled getting things back, I have google chrome back (I forgot how awkward IE can be) and iTunes is currently being fixed, the only thing I might have trouble is SAI, it's been corrupted or something, it's back on it's trial setting and all I get is strange symbols, I think the licence is still there so I can download it again, but a small part of me thinks I might have to buy it again DX but oh well it's a good program and it's my preferred one and it's been really good for me, might even upgrade to the newer version :)

Sorry again for the disappearance, I'll update things and do what I usually do at the end of the year tomorrow onwards, I want to finish sorting out my computer and get my brain back after getting back to uni.

I hope all is well with you guys :D

Writing month

I have been doing the NaNoWriMo this month and I am writing Lovell and Iven's story. and I have been going through a cycle of emotions, going from;

  • "I'm not very good with words, why on earth did I think trying to write a story was a good idea?!?!"
  • "What's the point? Nobody would ever read it?"
  • "I have no idea what I'm doing"
  • "I have no idea where I'm going this"
  • "I've only ever written short stories in the past" (but they were usually my only saving grace in language exams ^^;)
  • and just general feelings of hopelessness but still going through with it because I don't want to give up >.>;

And I've just been leaving myself notes saying "try and have this make sense" . . . So yeah that's what I've been doing. . .

I drew this from a little scene in the story as a bit of relief. It makes sense in context, well I at least hope it does ^^;

Sorry for it’s rough look, it was done quicker than I usually work. I don't really like the top panel but I quite like the other panels though, especially Iven's and that I think his hand is one of the best hands I have ever drawn or will draw for a long time.

I hope you all like it :D

A quick question, I'm thinking of making a world to post stuff about Lovell and Ivens' story like snippets of the story, character bits and bobs and designs and re-designs of things and sketches and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in seeing this? or would a general one for all of my oc's would be preferred? Any opinions would be welcomed thank you :)

10 things about my Characters! Meme

tagged by a friend on dA
1. Pick three of your OC's, and include thumbnails.
2. Share ten random facts about them.
3. You MUST post these rules.
4. Tag three people when you're done.

It’s difficult to talk about 10 things about just 3 characters, I would happily talk at length about all of my characters :D So I decided with the characters I’ve chosen, they’re either new and this is an opportunity to get to know then or that they’re characters that have been for a while and I’m going to give facts that you might not have known about them. Enjoy

The characters I have chosen:
Dai
External Image
1. He’s mixed race, Half Murri on his father side and Half Welsh on his mothers side. He gets most of his looks from his father.
2. Likes rugby and used to be captain for his school and local team, he could have gone professional but decided to stop playing shortly after his mother died.
3. Can speak 4 languages fluently, Welsh, English, French, and Spanish. He can only speak a bit of the Murri language but wishes to learn more and he’s trying learn Irish for fun and talking to Ricky.
4. He really enjoys traveling and has been to quite a few places, he prefers walking and hiking.
5. He likes and is really good at singing, but he’s incredibly shy and doesn’t really like people, even close friends and family, hear him sing.
6. His full name is Dainan, and it means kind hearted and the name is very well suited to him :D He’s a big friendly giant XD
7. He currently owns two cats, ones called Tallulah and the other is called Toff (short for Toffee), and used to own a Bernese mountain dog, named Enid, that lived until she was 12
8. He’s generally quite happy about his appearance, but he does get self-conscious about his weight and size, he knows he’s fit and healthy, but people make off-hand comments about his size. He’s a bit chunky but it’s mostly muscle under it (if that sentence made any sense now, sorry ^^;)
9. They’re all good friends in the group, but he has a closer friendship with Andre and Ricky.
10. He puts himself under a lot of pressure to live up to his parents expectations and being there for his friends.
Iven
External Image
1. Iven did not learn how to read until he began traveling with Lovell and Lovell has been teaching and encouraging him, but he can barely write. Iven doesn’t find academic learning easy, especially the system in Vorisdon, so Lovell teaches him and uses apps/programs to teach him.
2. Although he can’t write very well, he can draw quite well and is improving. Likes drawing people and complex patterns. He is also ambidextrous.
3. Like I said he finds academic learning difficult, but he can learn skills and techniques and spoken languages quickly.
4. He struggles to make friends and doesn’t really like people to touch him. But he managed to bond very quickly with Lovell. They both share a sense of curiosity but Iven has his feet firmly on the ground.
5. During the course of the story he develops PTSD and for spoiler reasons can’t say how, but his symptoms take form in Nightmares, loss of interest in things, and separation anxiety. He also has hyperarousal, but it’s difficult to differentiate between what was caused by the event and what he’s like naturally. Lovell encourages him to draw as it seems to calm him as does talking about random stuff and asking questions with Lovell, like how his skin tone is closer to Dalla’s than Lovell and his people and how Avivi has eyes like him but Lovell doesn’t.
6. He doesn’t like it when people waste stuff, especially food, and believes that you should always have something to eat when offered, because you never know when you’ll eat next. And has a habit of slightly hoarding food.
7. He will get his tattoo when he’s 13, it’s the earliest age he could get it, even though he’s met the criteria early on. His tattoo will be in a similar style to that of his parents. The average age is usually about 18.
8. He’s an only biological child of his parents but they’d adopted a young boy named Nalin, who’d lost his parents during the destruction of Mlialiezi. Nalin is now Azlyn’s apprentice to eventually take over her role as head priestess. They get along pretty well, but Iven can very easily beat him whenever he play fights with Nalin.
9. He’s able to use his feet pretty well to pick things up, open things and so on. He also a bit pigeon-toed and has two routinely do exercises to treat them and they’re a lot better than they used to be.
10. The bow and arrow he carries around with him was made for him by his father.
Llew
External Image
1. He has a gaming channel/vlog and quite a large following; he plays a verity of games and does challenges. He invites Ozzy to play along with him at times, it’s quite funny when he is as Ozzy isn’t very good at games, whenever Ozzy plays it ends up more like DanAndPhil games rather than serious high quality gaming. He also likes playing scary games alone in the dark.
2. He needs glasses for reading and such, but hardly ever wears them.
3. When his hair is grown long it goes curly, it used to grow just wavy, but has gotten curlier as he’s gotten older. This is why he keeps his hair so short.
4. Ozzy and Llew aren’t biologically brothers, Llew is technically Ozzy’s uncle, but they’ve been raised together and they have a really strong and close bond.
5. He boxes, and is Middleweight/super middleweight class.
6. He may seem confident and cocky, he actually doesn’t have much self-confidence and has a lot of doubt about himself.
7. His father left his mother before he was born, and he’s never had much of a relationship with his mother and she is kinda the reason he doubts himself and stuff.
8. He is the one who got Ozzy his choker.
9. He’s currently studying engineering/mechanic and taking a side course of photography. He isn’t very good on the mathematical side of engineering but excels when it comes to the intuitive side of things and getting things to work and coming up with things.
10. His hobbies include Surfing, boxing, photography, football, messing with Ozzy, a bit of doodling and coming up with things to build.

I hope you guys enjoyed this :D
