I did it, hahahaha!

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 20, 2010, 7:44 AM



I did it! Look...I did a journal skin! What took me hours has finally been achieved through a lot of stress and screaming xD
Sorry if it appeared that I had abandoned all you lovely people...I just had so much to do (and I still do >_<") But I promise that I'll try and be more active on here :D
Plus DA is being an annoying little jerk and just doesn't like me. When I try to reply to my messages it just freezes, and when I try to load new deviations it just says 'error loading deviations'. -_-. Not happy at all.
But apart from that...Spring is coming! It is just so so sunny outside that I really wanted to go for a merry walk but OH NO the snow HAD to get in the way. If it wasn't for the snow it would've looked like a nice spring day :)

So what has Lizzie been doing for the past week? Well I went to parties, and then fell ill, but now I'm well again which is good xD Been trying to finish off all those art peices that I had promised and I've got one left to do. Kind of. I can't wait to start doing my 'own' work.
I have just realised how dark and depressing my art work has been for the past few months...meh, it was winter, and I'm a summer kind of person, so what do you expect? Fine, I'll add more colours and cute furriness to my work...*sighs and rolls eyes* Whatever that makes you happy.
I took out the work that I had been doing last May when I first started anime and...I drew prettier eyes back then. Well, they were more of the squarey-and-typical kind of anime eyes, and it's bugging me. The eyes that I do now are kind of boring (that's what I think anyway).
So my question is: Should I go back to the old way that I draw eyes, or carry on with the new way?
Things to consider: Old way looks more cartoony, new way looks more realistic.
I want to start a project! One that I would actually enjoy doing and keep too (lol, as if that would happen). Was thinking of doing an Angels one...cause I luuurve angels and magical things xD Or I might just do magical stuff, gothic and light. Mwahahaha.

LOL
I have two scanners, one is at my grannies house, since I'm there most of the time, and one's at home.
They both suck though, cos they copy and print as well :P
I want to get a really good scanner, so you can see all of the details and stuff. :D

You're welcome dear :D.
aww no sorry to hear that dear that you was ill before the Christmas holiday and the other week as well :hug:.
aww i hope not dear :(, you don't deserve that. :iconsweethugplz:.
maybe low weather resistance.
I've had something what you describe you had so short after each other too last year when i just had started working at my new place.
You'll get better dear :huge :hug:s.
Maybe to eat more fruit will help and less stress.
i know that from me came to stress, everytime i get stressed i feel shitty and tired.

Lawls, yesh, very very pink :P Wanted to do white but I was generally feeling very pink yesterday xD
Omigawsh it was so confusing >_< I basically looked at what kind of codes other people used, and then had to seperate them into categories such as: What all people used, what some people used....etc. ^____^
