Chalk Princess by chibipandora Chalk Princess by chibipandora
Look! I drew something! YAY!

Yeah, I'm not dead.

Its just been too hard to draw lately and I finally figured out why. Most of my drawings are of princesses and fantasy-ness. But as of late, for a variety of reasons I just haven't felt very princessy. Being a regular old girl seems to be hard enough without the added weight of royalty. Because I really did grow up believing that if I just acted in a respectful, elegant, and disney-princess manner I'd be treated like one or better yet, finally brought home to my kingdom so I can rule with a fair hand.

alas.

It really is just all in my head, hence the chalk princess :aww:

Be nice to this picture, I'm rusty as can be.

D: You'll always be a princess to me!! <3

I really like the idea with this one... and the contrast of the lovely dress with the chalk chalkboard background. I really like the hair and the lace... you've gotten really good at those!!

It's nice to see art from you again, dear. <3
I've missed your reflective pieces - they always tell stories of their own, and that never ceases to fascinate me.

I hope this will be the first one in a series of many in this comeback of yours.

It'd be kind of fitting, anyway, because I just realized that you're probably one of my oldest (well, compared to the age of my account) still active watchers/watchees on this site. And I just sort of semi-returned, and what better timing to do so if you do too?

But yeah, you do what you like. ^_^

Thank you. Comments like that I really appreciate, because I can't tell you how often I wonder if I'm just wasting people's time with my whinnying and whatnot. But I really like reading other people's sooooo...

*_* It'll be a double comeback! I like it!

My weekends were once filled with activities and friends and movies and fun and dates and young life!!!! .... ... now they are not. >_>;;;; so for better or worse drawing is what will probably be happening... But I don't know how bummed I actually am about that.

Don't worry, you don't. And I like reading other people's too... It gives you a kind of insight into their lives which you might not have gotten othewise.

Speaking of which, have you heard of the "Shout It Out" project here on dA? I think you might like looking at some of that stuff as well. (:

Haha, yay! Go us! ;D
*bought herself a small sub to celebrate her own comeback for a bit*
Oddly enough, a 3 month sub cost me approximately what lunch goes for in the college restaurant. xD I don't know which of those things that says the most about, but...

Those things come and go. You can't be all that active all the time anyway - at least not and still maintain contact with your inner self, which I think is what art is for for me.

Your signature is so cute, by the way. I forgot how to make that emote, though. D:

Yeah, I've been reading a bunch of the the "shout it outs." Its really interesting what people write.

X3 Its funny because you wrote sub and I thought of a sandwich and you said how it costs about the same as a lunch :giggle: well, I thought it was kinda funny.

Yeah. I've had to do a lot of "crap... who I am again?" lately. Its not pleasant.

:frog: to make the adorable frog you just have to put "frog" and the little : dealies. I can't spell that stupid word...

It is! Those things are great ways to vent, too. Not that I personally would on dA, but still.

...You know, I had intended to make that pun myself, but I refrained from doing so... But I guess the pun just wanted to be heard, eh? ;D

Draw it oout! It could help. And if not, at least you've been drawing.

...

And your "rusty" is still better than my "This-took-forever!" =)

Very pretty! I love the lace and the symbolism.

Rusty or not, it actually looks very lovely. :heart: The rendering is nicely done, and I love the lace at the top of the dress.

^^; I want to make the dress sort of plain, but I couldn't help adding a little something so lace was added

Awww...

The hair and lace are beautiful, and I completely understand the symbolism. Great work... and someday the prince will come, although not quite in the Disney way either :)
