Things have changed, and I've changed a few things as well. The first and foremost being my username; I decided to shed my old name that I had since high school.

I haven't been doing much art lately; I simply haven't had the time or inspiration. Instead I've been doing more crafty things, or working on my blog.

Life is...life. It's not what I want it to be. I'm trying to change, but I don't know if I can.

So, hello.

5 min read




New journal layout, wooo. I installed a couple of new ones (...literally a couple, because I'm incredibly picky as to what I like). Yay.

So I am of course alive and submitting things every so often. Less photomanips and more other things as of late, though. I still love photomanipulation...I just don't have the time and patience for it as much anymore.

Plus I'm trying to practice and play around with photography more. I got a Canon Rebel XS for my birthday this year, and love it. I just ordered a set of macro filters last night after deciding that there's no way I'll be able to afford an actual macro lens anytime soon. Still holding out on a telephoto lens at some point. I think it will be useful, but I like closeup stuff better so yeah.

That's...about all for now.

Well, this was unexpected.

Over on my stock account, I got an DD for one of my brush sets.

Soft Grunge Brushes by yana-stock

Those have been up for so long and I've all but abandoned my stock account (don't really have the time to keep up with it any longer), so I really was not expecting that.

Wow! Thanks guys :D

In other news, nothing much to report. Finished up my first term at ILIA, which I'm liking. I'm on break until January 11th right now. Just working a bunch, and working on my entry for the Guild Wars Wintersday art contest. As well as doing some GW art commissions. Yay.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

So yeah, I really haven't been around here in a long time.

I just have no real inspiration or desire for art this past year. I don't know why. I just don't have the attention span for it right now, I think.

My computer completely gave out on me a couple of months ago. On the upside, I have a new computer. On the downside...my huge stockpile of resources, my PDFs, my old artwork...all gone. What's on here is what I have left. That's...really kind of sad. Well. Kind of sad. More like I cried when I realized that I'd lost all of my files. Sigh.

Christmas is over and I've managed to survive another holiday season at Gamestop. Still love my job, still dislike the idiots I have to deal with at times.

I now own a Wii, which is neat. Haven't actually gotten to play it myself, yet, thanks to my siblings hogging the thing. I've also gotten utterly addicted to Guild Wars.

And...yeah. I miss my friends here. But it's hard for me to care about this site when I'm not creating things. Bleh. I dunno.

Hi?
