I like doing these when I'm offline for a while. It's my way of apologizing for not keeping my promises to be more active. I'm trying! Thank you to those who continue to support me. It really is great having a backbone of support on devART-- especially when you're in a college full of super talented art MAJORS X'D I'm just a journalist major who really loves writing about her characters and occasionally drawing them.
There are two requirements, as always!
1) Be a watcher.
2) Favorite this journal.
*Otherwise, no rules. If you want to post a comment though, I'd love to talk to you! On a side note, I'm now on the

Summer Art Giveaway! (Fourth Winner drawn)Hello, everyone!Summer Art Giveaway! (Fourth Winner drawn) in Personal More Like This
Summer holidays have now officially hit and what better to do with all this free time than practice with my art? Plus, I'd like to have the opportunity to draw different types of characters..
How do I enter?
To make things easier than my last giveaway, I'm going to request that people favorite this journal instead of just leaving a comment. That way, I can use a random number generator and then use the favorite numbers to decide who the winner of the draw is! So be sure to favorite this journal and hey if you'd like you can also leave a comment
What will I be offering?
Now, here's the catch. If I do draw your name in a draw, I will note you and ask you for your request. You are allowed to request a certain character-- but I decide the format, the pose and everything else. Give me as much info as you can and I'll try to portray your character right: but there's no telling what kind of format things will be drawn in! Chibi, portrait, fullbody, halfbody..? It's

How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place. This journal may get a bit gross at times, just sayin'How I (Finally) Got Good Skin in Personal More Like This
My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you
