Guess who's back in action?

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 30, 2009, 4:50 AM



Howdy!
Yesterday was the last day of my break, which means...yesh! You'll be seeing some art work from me!
The break I took taught me new things: how to have patience with your work, and it allowed me to pay attention to detail. I think that taking a break was good for me to develop on my art, so I'd be taking more from now on. You should try taking breaks too, as it helped me to improve greatly ^_^
But for now, I'm back!
*immediately submits work*
I am now going through my to-do list. I apologise deeply for all those who were patiently waiting for their request/art trade/prize/contest entry! I will get to them, promise ^_^

So yeah, in my latest poll I asked 'What kind of art would you like to see from me?" The majority of your put 'cute' and 'gothic', although a few others said 'fantasy'. Taking this into account I'll focuse more on these themes, so watch out for cute gothic fantasy! xD How interesting it would be...
And because I can't be bothered to do more polls, I've decided to ask you some questions on here! Please answer them...please?

:bulletorange: Would you commission me if you could?
:bulletpurple: Do you want me to post some tutorials on how I paint etc?
:bulletblue: If you haven't already answered my poll, what kind of art theme do you want to see from me? (e.g cute)

As you may have known from my previous journal, my taid (grandpa) died on Sunday. It was a big slap-in-the-face for me, so I went into a major depression. But thanks to you all I'm now back on my feet, so thankyou so much guys! :heart: You all mean a lot to me ^_^ Thank you! :blowkiss:

Anyways...

Join our Halloween contest to win some uber-awesome prizes!:

Hey dear! :heart:
I'm glad to see new art from you soon, I can't wait for the cute gothic fantasy! xD
I think taking a break from drawing can be really good sometimes ...

I would commish you if I had the money. -.- I'm sorry. T__T
But a tuturial would be great!

Anyway, I'm truly happy that you feel better again. :hug:

Ach, it seems that money is a big problem here Dx no one seems to be able to afford anything anymore, including me >.< It really sucks because my college doesn't allow me to work for more than 8 hours a week, which sucks as there are hardly any jobs that do that Dx it's very hard to find a job too >.<

Okidos! What kind of tutorial do you wanna see from me?

Dang! Everyone seems to be broke at the minute, which sucks xP But if you sign up on gaia you could pay for commissions with 'gaia gold' which isn't real money ^_^

Ooh yay! I am thinking of doing tutorials. Might do it with my next painting or something...

Chibis? I've never tried them before >.> But neko's I'll definately do xP

That's not a bad idea, I might sign up on Gaia :D I'll let you know when I do :glomp:

The tutorials are definitely a good idea :glomp:

yay for teh nekos :la:

lizjowen Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Well you should, because loads of people do commissions on there for Gaia gold xP When you get more popular, and people see that you do commissions, you might one day get real money! :D

Okidos! I shall do them when I have the time ^_^

Cute+Goth+Fantasy=Tsukuyomi (Moon Phase)

At least that's the closest I've seen to that. I think a genuine Moon-Thorn creation from you would look better though.

As to your other questions:
1. I would not commission from you now though I would in the future if I had a project I wanted your unique touch on.
2. Absolutely post tutorials, if you're willing to share your secrets, that is.
3. I'll stand by my previous poll answer: I hope to see your full zodiac calendar someday. Yeah instead of regular prints you could even make a calendar out of it...

What is Tsukuyomi? Is it an anime? ^_^

I'm developing my own style, which is, hopefully, easy to realise. I don't like copying other works Dx although I like taking ideas ^_^

I keep telling myself to go back to the Zodiac series, but I never seem to get any inspiration Dx what I would do is go back and make newer versions of the ones I did (Although I won't re-do pisces because that one's the best xP) And do the whole series altogether, or I might just do them all in one picture o.O

Yes it is an anime. The opening song segment of the episodes is a sugar-coma of cuteness that will likely drive you nuts. I think it's all on youtube. And yes, she IS a vampire. Kind of.

I guess pass on the zodiac until/unless you're inspired again. That is when you do your best work.

Hi! Sorry I haven't been an active watcher! To answer your questions, I would commission you if I could. It'd be great if you did some tutorials, too. I like your themed works - like the Zodiac series. They're amazing. I think that when you're doing series, you try to make the piece you're working on better than the one that came before it.

Yesh, many people want me to continue with my Zodiac work, but I just can't seem to find the inspiration to do it Dx I might do the chinese Zodiac: what do you think?

Chinese zodiac - rat, tiger, boar, etc? That'd be cool, but it's just not the same...
