How’s was everyone’s weekend or the whole week rather? Mine’s were really good, Brandon stayed over a few days. Once again he spoils me with gifts with a heart shaped pillow and he brought a game from the playstation store called “castle crashers”. It’s a really fun game but it can be annoying dying so much. XD
I finished all my latest sweet accessories including the cream puff necklace! Now I just have to take good pictures of them. I tried to do so today but it was too cloudy and not enough sun (damn it) but I still got really good pictures. The camera is so amazing when it comes to up-close shots. You can see amazing detail like you wouldn’t believe! I didn’t get the kinds of pictures I wanted today, so I’ll try again tomorrow. I want a nice bright look since the charms is on white wax paper and plates. If it’s less then that it looks somewhat dull and I hate that. XD
Since I’m on the topic on my sweets and pictures, for the 1000th time I’m going to be updating (after a long time of not doing a thing in it) my old Candy sanctuary blog. I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, not just the blog but my whole “brand”. It needs a stable home especially if people want to see my sweets deco only. Also, when I take pictures of my accessories there is always more then one picture I want to show, but I only post one so I won’t be “spamming”. The blog would be a perfect place to upload my zillions of pictures as well as updating my deco adventures. The only thing that really ticks me off about it is the design. I was in the middle of making a new one when I went into my “burned out/hiatus” mode. Now that I’m coming back to it with a new attitude I want to change the design from what I was doing with it. I have many ideas but none of them is “striking” to me. The best one I had so far is making banner/background like a café menu with my sweets as the food. XD I really like it but I want to see if there is anything else I can do. If anyone got any suggestions I’ll be happy to hear them!
Lastly after a lot of drawing on the computer I went sketching in my mini sketch book. Nothing can beat the feeling of drawing in pencil! I had such a blast doodling my Battle Otaku Royal self, practicing poses, and maids. I actually doodled the maids this afternoon. I made three little fursona chibis one each with a different maid outfit. I love the first two designs, I was thinking maybe that can be Candy Sanctuary maids. I want to draw more maids; I never had so much fun with them. *U*
Here’s the second one, my favorite with a sneak peak of my cream puff necklace.
So cute, I might do more pictures like this in the future. I also want to make some paper children with my sweets…
That’s all for now, I hope everyone is doing okay! See you all soon!
When someone submits an OBVIOUS SCREEN SHOT FROM NARUTO with a Photoshop filter over it and it makes the front page. Better yet someone asks about the screen shot, and the poster said that she used watercolors and her sister helped her. Then the person that asked buys the story and even said that "it looks like a screen shot that's why I asked".
I FREAK'N LOVE THIS SITE. REPORT REPORT REPORT.
I’m going to be participating in the Manga Bullet’s Calendar project. The calendars will be sold ALL AROUND THE WORLD and will go to the web site’s maintenance. This is the first time I ever been in a project like this. I’m just speechless that I’m going to be doing this, especially along side some of manga bullet’s most talented and nicest artist I know.
Hanel, the one who had the idea and the one setting it all up threw the concept out there. She asked if any artists would be interested. I was really skeptical at first since I never did anything like this, plus the usual self doubt started to set in. But a bigger part of me was totally confidant and knew that this was a piece of cake so I hopped in there like a rabid dog. I’m so glad I did, I really loved the idea especially being a part of a special project for Manga Bullet. The site is great and I love the artists there. It’s such a warm and special place. I can just go around comment on everyone’s art or journal posts with complete ease and I get a lot of nice replies back! Something I can’t really do everywhere I go. XD
But getting back to the project itself, I got the month of JULY. I totally got the fun month of the year. It’s so much I can do with it (besides the 4th of July). THROW ME SOME IDEAS GUYS. The dead line is a solid month away and we get to work on a HUGE CANVAS. 3375x2354 to be exact, that’s the biggest canvas I ever worked in but I’m so eager about the picture.
I AM SUPER EXCITED… I’ll start this week once I get the perfect idea. *U*
So yeah yesterday as I was finishing Kelsey’s gift (which you should see because its totally epic) my friend Brandon came over and gave me a copy of SIM MOTHER F**KING 3 FOR THE CONSOLE.
I PRETTY MUCH EXPLODED INTO RAINBOWS AND SPARKLES.
I had the game for the PC but my computer is such a piece of crap I couldn’t really play it after like 15 minutes, most which consists of LAG. So when I saw the ad for the console I was like DO WANT. Then Brandon was like “early X-mas gift?” and I was like F**K YEAH. Then he actually got it for me and I totally love him forever and ever. Then he said he had another gift for x-mas any way and I exploded again into rainbows and sparkles. XD
The game is epic, I totally love it and it was something I wanted for way too long. So yeah if you don’t see me in a while it’s because of sims 3 and making hot male sims date each other. HAR HAR HAR.
Special shout out to Kelsey and J.C Elric since it’s their birthdays today and yesterday. I hope you guys birthday was good. Speaking of which I started the sketch for J’s picture. I’ll color it in copics because it’s addictive as well as fun.
There are other pictures I want to start and finished. The one old picture I’ll finish next is the old Mew ichigo line art that Kiro loves so much. She expressed how I should finish it before and I always said that I will or something likes that. SO YEAH EARLY HEAD UP FOR YOU KIRO THAT’S NEXT ON MY LIST.
I also have tons and tons of ideas I want to start up. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY I’m going to start on the prize for Chel the bell. It’s been way overdo but I didn’t want to just scribble something out just for the sake of it. ;A;
Okay I can keep going forever but I don’t want to. Thanks for reading.
I just wanted to show
off my current picture that I'm making coughcoughforsomeone'sbirthdaythisweek. I'm having a blast with it and wanted to share the enthusiasm. XD
HOHOHO I can't wait till its done so you guys can see the whole thing! I'm seeing so much improvement in my art lately, its crazy. o__o
I also started on a bunch of new charms and accessories including the cream puff necklace that wanted to make. I added some of the toppings to the pieces, I just need to add the cream and hardware. I might do that tomorrow morning or so when I'm done this piece.
Thanks for viewing guys and don't forget to show my latest picture some love!
See ya later!
