What's up, DA! Just thought I'd post a general update since it's been a long time since my last journal.
I'm doing better lately, been learning how to manage my drawing time so I'm not in so much pain, and also spending more time taking care of my mental health. I've also been attempting to refresh my mindset by trying new things with my art and I think that's helping a lot as well. I've allowed time for some rather self-indulgent stuff recently and have really been enjoying my vintage bunny pieces, so expect more of that to come
I thought it would also be a good idea to update about where I am and what I'm doing these days:
Hey guys, just thought I'd give a quick update since it's been a while.
I've been a bit inactive lately and it's mostly due to health issues that I don't want to go into. The end result is for the past few months it has gotten bad enough that it's really painful for me to draw, which is an unbelievably frustrating and depressing experience. I finally decided to start on new medication, so I've got my fingers crossed that it will help and I can get back to drawing more. Right now all of my limited drawing time has to go towards the necessary stuff, like my shop and Gamercat, so I haven't had much time to play. I hope that can turn around soon
Ahhhh I was having a hard time keeping up with all the comments, so I just wanted to drop a big thank you to everybody for the birthday wishes yesterday! :party:

I've mentioned doing this before, but I'm officially making the transition now. I'm switching all of my closed species and ARPG stuff over to my alt account!

I've already moved most of my adopt art over there and I'm going to try to be more active on that account. I might still put some of the art in this account, but I'm going to try to keep most of it over there for the sake of separation.
If you like my nerdy hobby art feel free to keep following it over there <3
Hey peeps, just wanted to give a heads up that I'm heading to Anime Boston this weekend! If you're going, please be sure to swing by the dealer's room and visit us at Booth 329 (full exhibitor map here) We'll have all of my goodies from Sugar Bunny Shop, plus a few new items making their debut ;)
I've been in con prep hell for the past week or two and we're about to hit the road, so sorry if I have been (and continue to be) slow to respond or miss any messages/comments. It's been really hard for me to keep up with everything, but hopefully things calm down after the convention.
Thanks for understanding!
I usually miss my DeviantArt anniversary, but I managed to catch it this year!
I really can't believe I've been on this site for 14 years today. I remember back when I joined, it was the newest trend in a long line of collective artist galleries that were springing up. I was already on Side7 (and several other galleries) and was quite happy there, but this seemed like a promising new platform, so I decided to give it a try. Fast forward to today and it's basically the only site I still use that isn't a social media stream.
There have been ups and downs along the way, and my time spent on here dips occasionally due to life obligations, but I
So my birthday is in roughly 2 weeks (June 3) and I'm throwing shame out the window. If anybody is feeling generous, I'd love some art of my characters!
:pointr: My babies - http://toyhou.se/Celesse
I'd be so happy for art of pretty much anybody in there. I love them all! And I'd be grateful for sketches, illos, pixels, whatever!
If you don't like making decisions, these are my top 3 faves right now:
And if ferals/anthros aren't your thing, I do have my Neapolitan triplets (you don't have to draw all three) - http://toyhou.se/18053.nea-poli-and-tan/g
Update 7/15 - Only a few prints left! I'd really like to find homes for these.
So I have a ton of leftover My Little Pony prints from when I did the MLP Fair convention and Bronycon a few years ago. I haven't been able to make it back to either and these have just been sitting in storage, so I'm going to sell them off at a discounted price to try to get rid of them. My only option after this is to just recycle them which would be sad :( So I hope I can sell them instead. And it's relatively safe to say that these will NOT be printed again, so this probably your only chance to get them.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Thirteen years! Since August 04, 2002
2. What does your username mean?
Celesse was the name my mother wanted to give me, but my parents settled on Samantha instead. I thought it would be an appropriate alias when I got online.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Cheerful, playful, dorky
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Realism, because it would totally help me in my more stylized endeavors.
Well, like usual, DA has made a change and everybody is furious about it.
I'm pretty open to change, though I admit I was slightly put off by this at first. My main complaint is that this came with no warning, though I expect people would have reacted the same either way and this seemed like an attempt to, figuratively speaking, rip off the band-aid and get it over with.
I can't say I like the obnoxious orange color because it clashes in an otherwise harmonious design, nor do I like the term "core" because I feel it (unintentionally) conveys the wrong message. But really, think about it, was "premium" any better? It's still a label that ele
