Look who’s here!!! :D
(Iven actually loves it XD – it’s just the most recent thing I’ve drawn of him)
I have my very own Iven plush made by the wonderful and talented theplushielady :D
He’s much cuter in real life and my pictures do him no justice ^^; (also I keep on forgetting that Iven has freckles now and so I forgot to ask about them – but that’s my fault ^^;)
He has his bow and arrows and it’s carrier (they’re also detachable :D) He has three cute dinky arrows, more than enough for Iven to successfully take down a large army XD
I love it so much :D I wanted to photograph him with my stuffed dogs but they’re not currently with me :( (I regret not bringing them with me).
He’s so cute :D I’m a very happy bunny
I hope you all like him :)
Hi ^^ how is everyone?
Thought I'd update with what is going on with me :)
I've started university and I've been here a week and so far I'm doing well, I worked out a little routine for myself, and now I have that I'm champion I can do it ^^ I don't think I'll have to worry too much about money with the amount of grant I'm getting to support myself and I'm getting to grips with the new place and the work load is definitely something I can handle and still do my own stuff too ^^
I can post more things now hopefully, I have a better seating arrangement now and it's making it easier ^^
I'm still ill and I've got this strange tingling/numb sensation in my left hand and I'm going to make an appointment on Monday to see a doctor at this place and hopefully that these guys will take me serious and not make assumptions ¬_¬
Now a question in recent sketch marathon submission I have been coming up with new characters for a new project thing and I would like to know what you guys think of it in general and first impressions of them ^^
Last question, I want to have a tote bag and have one of my drawings on it but I don't know what yet, any suggestions?
I hope all is well you guys :D :D
*discreetly brushes away cobwebs* Hi ^^
How is everyone? Thank you for the kind comments in the previous post ^^
I’m still not much better but I’m going to try and get back into the swing of things :) I wanted to do another 30 days challenge this year but I want to try and concentrate on getting myself better again and art wise just do some general exercises to improve my art, especially my illustrations, so that won’t put any pressure on me to have a post a day ^^
I’m going to do some memes like the draw this again memes to see improvements, there’s a colour wheel meme thing going around and I want to try and be able to complete it by the end of the summer (I have a lot of the colours missing ^^;), and there are some other general ones like a face shape challenge and some exercise from Conceptcookie and I’m going to do some studies too and other stuff ^^ There’s a lot there and I’ll try not to make myself worse but I’m pretty sure I’m a glutton for punishment XD
I’m also looking for art based events and contests to join in, because I had so much fun in the round robin comic and one held by MangaKid. There are some contests I’m going to join but I’ve not seen any around yet, have you guys any in mind?
Commission will soon be re-opened with up-dated prices and I’ve opened a redbubble and added work to it and society6 and that here they are Society6 and Redbubble
I hope to productive and post more, I don’t know when I start uni for sure but I’m sure it’s not until mid-September at least ^^;
Also have you guys heard that Paint Tool Sai is getting and update? It’s in beta mode, has some bugs and hasn’t been translated yet but the updates look really useful. It will have a text layer!!! :D and you can have the update for free if you have a fully licenced version already!! :D Here’s a link to read for yourselves ^^
I hope you guys are having a nice summer/time :D
Just a journal to apologise for the sporadic posts/lack of updates recently, the reason is that I haven't been very well since about November, and I have been drawing it's just that they've just been sketches mostly and the few full illustrations I've drawn, I haven't had it in me to type up the things that go with them, but I'm going to try and get to it soon as I can.
I'm also in the middle of revamping worlds/proffie/tumblrs and add more work to Society6 and I think I might start a red bubbble instead of a zazzle, it has less things available but the shipping is a lot cheaper (so fairer on people) and seems easier to use.
Again I'm very sorry and I hope you guys are well :)
I think I’ve been able to improve and been able to reach my goals for 2014 but I’m still going to keep them as I still have a lot to improve :) My art summary for this year
