Plans for the Year

Plans for the Year

I'm hoping to accomplish a few things this year. - work on my 2D skills. Brush up and practice drawing more. - keep a work journal of my art ideas all year. - finish a set for doll photos that's fun to dress and easy to play with. - buy a better camera for said photos. - Rapunzel's tower doll house. - finish up my armatures. I don't think that's too much for the year? Anything I don't finish I'll just keep working on into the next year. :) Anywhoo. Just want to keep myself accountable.

That moment when you have the seed of an idea

And it's Amaaaaaaaazing. But it's gonna be soooooo much work you almost quit before even considering it. Yeah. I get those all the time. Mostly, I choose to write them down in my art journal and save them for later, but I think this time I'm gonna make an art journal just for these ideas and call it my Compost Journal. Throw all the crap from my brain in a pile and use it to fertilize my garden. ^_^ or just wonder how I'm gonna get the energy and funding and shelve it again. :/ I need to win the lottery, man. /le sigh

Hello my lovelies. I have *so many* dolls to add I'm a bit overwhelmed! D: I'll be chomping through my backlog for a while I think. *sigh* So, in the meantime, here's a couple previews. ^___^ Also, I've realized that I have absolutely ZERO new goblins up here. D: D: D; I've made approximately 40 of them, so I can see how they never made it to DA. It's crazypants. ♥~Jane

Happy Hallowe'en Sale!! OMG.

Happy Hallowe'en Sale!! OMG.

Happy Hallowe'en! I'm having a sale on everything in my Etsy shop! Prices are marked at 50% off until Monday Nov 1st, so if you've ever wanted one of my creatures now would be an excellent time to snatch one up. ^___^ There are a few Imps, a whole lot of Birdthings, the White Rider and a handful of Hunters left who are looking for lovely homes. ^__^  They make lovely holiday gifts too! ♥ Hearts!

Here be Custom Creatures from an Artist in Need. As many of you know, I'll be moving 2,000 miles across the country in a week.  This is a fabulous opportunity for me and I'm grabbing it with both hands.  It's a *huge* leap y'all, and I've spent the past few months trying my best to make things happen as smoothly as possible. This is also the first time I've made a long distance move all by myself and it's more than a little scary and I'm doing my best to make things work. Unfortunately, I've recently had a couple setbacks and my moving funds are not as much as they need to be, infact they are quite a bit less and I'm seriously freaking out
