I have been looking at some old art and think i might redo this: - Do you have an old piece of work you've been wanting (itching/craving) to redo now that you're older/wiser? 

2 deviants said Yes, my old stuff really is so different to where i'm at now.
1 deviant said Yes omgerd! everything.
1 deviant said No... just no.
No deviants said You can't change perfection.
No deviants said All my art looks identical, so why change it?

Stars, stars everywhere!

Nearly Christmas Time...

Sat Nov 14, 2015, 6:02 PM

Navigator by ExitMothership

Sorry to all who have sent messages and replies and gotten nothing in return.
I have been pretty nauseous through this pregnancy, and had some personal things to deal with as well as moving house! So it's been one hell of a roller coaster ride.

And the horrible news about Paris :( tragic!

In more positive news, I recently saw The Martian. Oh Em Gee... Loved it like crazy! And next weekend I'm heading off to see Hunger Games Mockingjay Pt 2. HellzYeeeeah! (Ps. If you have a lover/hubby/wife/partner/etc and have had tension... go on date nights. I am so glad I've reinstated this, because before that we were fighting so much. DATE NIGHT! WOOT! so important for every relationship/marriage)

And, of course, as my journal subject says - it's nearly Christmas time. And those who know me well know that Christmas is by far my most favourite time of year. And we're hosting lunch at our new home. SO EXCITED. I love Christmas parties. It's a time to spend time with those who don't have anywhere else to celebrate, and of course with family. It also gives me an opportunity to be all creative and give hand made things to people. I'm wracking my brain trying to think of something cool to make for everyone this year, but our christmas guest list is steadily growing! :o Cray cray.

I am also thinking about making a big hamper for a family in need as not everyone has awesome things to do or even get gifts this time of year because money gets tight... 

anyway I hope you all are having fun preparing for Christmas, and if not, I hope there are people out there who have extended their friendly hand to you so that you can be with loved ones.

Stay cool, peeps. and if you are cool enough, stay hot :P

Jojo. :heart:

Here is some Christmas eye candy for you.

Hello friends!
My name is Jojo and I'm a Digital Artist, Phtographer and Writer from
Melbourne, Australia! I specifically love doing Photomanipulations, Digital Drawing and Painting and I enjoy working on my manuscript, Attuned.

I love making new friends, encouraging artists with their work and reading comments, forum posts and exciting journals.

I highly dislike being asked for points (unless you know me well) but can try to point you in the direction of groups that can help you get a little something here or there. I appreciate your understanding.

I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your kind favourites, llama's and watches. I may not get to each of you to personally thank you all, but please know that you are important to me and I do try to make some effort to visit your page when I get some time. Thank you for your understanding and your show of love.

Current Residence: Melbourne Australia
What makes me happy: World of Warcraft
Favourite Band/Singer: Muse, Katy Perry + more.
Favourite TV Show: Game of Thrones
On DeviantArt I...: Just want to help people succeed, learn more for my
own skills and create exciting work.
Groups to recommend are..:
- seniormentors for Learning
- Digitalists and digitizing for amazing Digital Art
- SixWordStories and Live-Love-Write for Writers
- SpeedpaintStudies for those (like me) who want to get Digital Art skill!


Cute Christmas Friend
I'm currently working on a lesson from Skillshare and this is one of my attempts.
As a bit of a way of kicking me back into art... I decided to try to do 1 a day for the next year. this will be tricky... but anyway. I sourced an art prompt for this one.
It said: Darkness covered the world. She had to adapt.

It is a bit of a speed paint, hence why it's tiny. i ended up cropping it in the end, because there was so much unused space. 
I was trying to really convey the darkness part of it, and i'm not really sure if she's adapting, so much as running the hell out of there.

Anyway... welcome back me. lol 


Since I'm really out of practice, i'm more than happy to have critiques. I want to start to improve in all areas and hone my skills.
How do you delete deviations using the app?
