Hello :) A little update, I have gotten my A level results and I have passed them :) and I was accepted into my 1st choice, but I may now not be going there, some things have happened, and it’s just left a bad taste in my mouth about the place and they’re also taking they’re time with some stuff so I think I’ve missed out on getting any other place for this year. So I don’t know, it’s been very stressful, I don’t want to leave it another year before going, but it’s looking more and more likely to be the case . . . for all of my school life I’ve been in the top tiers of the classes and do really well ahead of most other students and easily keeping up with those who look down at me and now at the prospect at being at least 2 years behind other people my age it’s demoralizing, I know I’m ‘still young’ but my point still stands. My other options are; going back to the same college I’ve been at, which I don’t want too or going to do a foundation course and the only places that teach foundation art courses are a good 5+ hours’ journey a day, I struggle as it is with my low energy and blood pressure (seriously I would like to not feel constantly dizzy!) at my current college. So I don’t really know what on earth is happening . And as for what I want to do in the future is another question (and possible rant) and that can be left for another day.
Anyway something a little more cheerful, ;As some may know already I won 1st and 2nd at art at a local show and I’ve gotten some commissions out of it :D I’m also hoping to open a Zazzle and a Society6 store. I’ve nearly finished Mangakids prize too
Also now have to wear a wrist splint/support/thing, because I’ve been having some problems with my wrist recently and it’s really difficult to draw with ^^;
And the new doctor who was good on Saturday :)
Now some questions
Another thing is that I want to ask about advice on how is the best way to come up with a story title, I am really struggling to come up with a title for Lovell and Iven’s story, also if I were to make a world and posted snippets and exercises, would people be interested or able to give advice
I think this is all I have for now ^^I have another question but that can be left for another time
I hope all is well with you guys :)
I’m freeeeeee, no more exams :D I had my last exam yesterday morning and I have finished college (yay!! but a part of me is going to miss it and I don’t know why XD) I still have a few more things left to do there but I’ve essentially finished now and have over two whole months or more of summer holidays :D (I’m not sure when university starts so I could have something nearing at 3 months) and I’m going to keep myself busy and be productive!
I’m more certain of my choices of what I want to do at university this time around, I’ve chosen to study Business studies and fine art at one uni and my backup is education studies and fine art so I can get the best of both worlds and I know I can still become a barrister afterwards if I wanted to :) For now I’m just going to do art and relax and not have to worry about any of this until the mid/end of august ^^
I’m going to be updating my commission prices and examples as they are really old now, I only have a few more examples to make. I also want to update and stuff my worlds, dA profile and tumblr and just generally make them look better ^^
Also I think I may need to go and see a doctor soonish as my wrist is making it very painful to draw or do anything :(
I have got things to do over the summer and here’s the list:
- I will make adoptable this year XD
- Do the little fashion things, I have got ideas for this but I haven’t found a suitable style to draw them in.
- Make and sell some cards and I have an idea to make some magnets too –this is after being inspired by what Mangakid wants to do.
- Work hard on improving again this year
- 4koma round robin (I’m in the process of drawing it and I’ll try and upload the 1st panel tomorrow)
- Trading card event (sketched ideas)
- A 30 day improvement challenge – I’ll be uploading them day by day as a fan comic on theO and on tumblr and a compilation every week or so on dA and as separate deviation if they’re a good enough. If anyone else wants to do this I’ll give you a link to the themes so you guys can take part too.
- Also going to work on Lovell and Iven’s story :D
So that’s an update from me, I hope all is well with you guys and that you guys are having or going to have a great summer.
I don't know why but recently I've become apprehensive and a little bit scared of uploading my art here and on dA. I really don't know why, I haven't received any negative comments or anything, I'm not in a art block, I have been making art, I have a few ready, and I have been quite productive but I haven't posted anything and I feel bad for not posting anything, and I'm sorry about that :(
I'll try and force myself to upload something tomorrow

I’ve finished my art exam yesterday, I had 12 hours of it over Wednesday, Thursday and a bit on Friday ^^ I was going to write up about it yesterday but I was too tired sorry and passed out on my bed ^^;
As part of my exam I did 1 painting, and 15 little illustrations and sew them into a little book ^^ It turned out okay :) I was going to give you a preview but I couldn’t scan any of them. But when I get them back I will scan them and upload them here and you guys will get extra pictures and bonuses and everything :D My arms still hurt a little but I’m okay I’m going to relax and draw my own things this weekend :)
My other exams start in a month or so and I won’t be on as much when I study. I only have about 4 exams, 2 law and 2 business which isn’t too bad :) So during that time I will have drawn some drawings/other things maybe too so I won’t be off the radar completely so yey!! :D
I’m going to be updating my commission info and examples too :D
I also want to host a challenge soon, I have almost finished my example picture but I’m struggling with a name for it ^^;
Well I hope all is well with you guys :)
