Firstly, I'm not dead.
I just haven't had much time to sit down and do digital art, mostly just traditional but even then there hasn't been much of that either.

But since the last journal, I've been busy since November with work as well as working on cosplay and going to Brisbane Supanova.
It was kept quiet but I was in a group with my friends and we went as The Ember Island Players from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
We joined in the cosplay competition and ended up winning best group with our skit!
Our group name is The Ember Island Cosplayers and we have a lot more cosplay projects in the works!

Below is a recording of our skit that won if anyone is interested in watching it! :D


Other then that, nothing really exciting or note worthy has happened since then. I've just been kept busy with work mostly.

Till next time,
Miranda
So, I have currently 4-5 writing projects I could be working on. (there are more, but these are the main ones)


1. I could write about Zaosan in a collection of short stories which will cover his life up until the point he meets Gadzooks.

2. I could write about Gadzooks in a collection of short stories which will be about her every day life, but at different points in her life.

3. My own AU! where Gadzooks and Zaosan both work at a strip club and their adventures there.

4. I work on one of my unfinished short stories, like Mage, and A Dragon's Greed.

5. I do none of the above and get back to world building and then work on writing Gadzooks story to then publish it on Amazon or something similar, as a ebook and maybe a physical book???
I've been on DeviantArt for 7 years as of today, been an interesting ride, my art has improved a lot over the years, looking back on it is inspiring. 

My most recent drawing of Gadzooks done in 2017 vs. the first full body drawing of Gadzooks drawn back in 2010
Adventures With Gadzooks - 1 by GadzooksTD vs.  The Legend Of Gadzooks 2. by GadzooksTD
She sure has come a long way over the past 7 years.


See ya

Howdy all, I'm back from my America trip. (well I've been home for a week now but shush)

It was fantastic to finally meet sooner7 in person and hang out with, she showed me around Helena, played board games and generally had a fantastic time, we also went to the cinema and saw Guardians of the Galexy Vol.2 and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, I really enjoyed King Arthur, got a lot of inspiration from it as well.

The most fun thing about my holiday was the road trip to Yellowstone National Park and the couple places we stopped on the way there. I got to go to The Museum of the Rockies and see all the dinosaur skeletons and fossils, as well as their live crocodilian display, American alligators are tiny compared to Salt Water Crocodiles. Then we stopped at the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, so I got to see a handful of brown/grizzly bears, some wolves, the land squirrels and a handful of different birds of prey. Once we finished there we drove into Yellowstone National Park itself.

Driving around and through Yellowstone National Park, seeing the landscape and the wildlife was awesome, I saw a bunch of sulphur pits, steaming hot springs, a smoking mountain side, a bubbling mud pit, I also got to see Old Faithful erupt. I saw 4 bears, one was a brown bear and her 2 cubs, the other a young black bear cub. I also saw elk, a squirrel, a lot of bison, a chipmunk, a fox, geese, and a bald eagle.

It was a lot of fun, the only thing that wasn't as fun was all the domestic flights I had to take, but other than that it was fantastic and I would happily do it again!


I'll also be posting up some art soon, so stick around for that.

For those wondering about all the strange status updates, I am flying to America on the 24th of May to visit sooner7 

I'll be gone for less than 2 weeks, I get back on the 5th of June, but there won't be any art up here in that time (not that there has been any recently :P)

But I'll be capturing my journey with lots of photos that will more than likely be going on my Snapchat and Instagram.

Any art I end up doing while away on my trip will be uploaded to my Facebook page.

If you want to follow add me on Snapchat, let me know.


Until next time,
Gadzooks
So, out of the people who watch me, I am wondering, say you were to commission me, what would you be looking for and for how much? 

I am genuinely curious and want to know your thoughts about what you think.


Do you think I'd worth commissioning or do you think I should work on my art more before offering commissions?


Signed, a curious artist.

It's a new year and a new year means new art.

For the year of 2017 I'm planning on doing and posting more then I did last year. I'm also planning on doing writing and I'm also gonna learn to draw different poses and things I struggle to draw and I'm gonna attempt to learn how to animate, or at least try to. (I got some lessons for Christmas on some simple walk, trot and run by Aaron Blaise who worked on Lion King and a few other Disney movies)

I may also draw memes and even do some art trades, not sure when though. I might open up requests at some point in time but I'm not 100% about doing that.

But regardless, I plan on drawing, writing and animating and hopefully improving my skills over the following months.

Update 3: Aftershocks are still happening on both islands and there are still a number of large ones that have happened recently as well. (5.7 and 6.3)

Update 2: Tsunami warnings are in effect for both islands and all coasts, get inland and to high ground if you haven’t already.


Update 1: First 
earthquake has been updated to 7.5 magnitude, please stay safe everyone!

Stay safe New Zealand. If any of my followers live there please take care and get to high ground if you are on the south side of either island as there are live tsunami warnings.

For those of you who aren’t in NZ and don’t know what’s going on, an earthquake of 6.6 magnitude happened about an hour ago and there are aftershocks happening all over both islands ranging from 0.9 up to 6.2 in magnitude.

Replacing the other journal, it's old

Heading to Brisbane Supanova this Saturday, going to be cosplaying T'Shink from the Zarkora series, going to be fun.

If you're going, I'll be wandering around the hall most of the day.

So, been awhile since the last journal (over two months, I know)

Well, it's been a busy (kind of?) time since then, I started doing more nights at work, joined a dnd group (I'll be putting up more art from that later), hung out with friends and relaxed. 
I did absolutely no writing what-so-ever, but I did get most of the plot done which is great.

There was the Medieval Festival in July which was also a lot of fun like it always is. (I still have some turkish delight left over, yum!) And right after that Tafe went back for semester 2.

After a fair bit of thinking it over, I decided to not re-enrole for the second semester and instead picked up more time at work, going from 2-3 nights a week to 5 nights a week, while it's taking a bit of time to adjust to my new work load, it's not too bad since I only work at night and I have the days free to sleep and whatnot.

And next month I'll be working at Oz Comic con with Crimson-Mane at her stall, I'm really looking forward to that.



Until the next journal,

Woohoo! :dummy:

I'm on my semester break and this means I have time to do art and more importantly, write.

I am going to be spending most of my break rewriting "To Become a Monster" and hopefully I can get it big enough so that I can publish it as an ebook on Amazon.

Along with that I've also got a couple illustrations I am planning on doing later as well. (plus a few late birthday presents) 

I'll also be doing a little gift-away later since it's my birthday month and I want to do something nice for you lot.


See you around

Just giving all my watchers a heads up, I'm about to upload a lot of art I've done over the past few weeks.

(requests closed now)

I'm also planning on doing some taking some small requests this week and next week. (must be watching me to apply for a request) 

Just comment below with a character(s) and I'll pick who I draw for and what I draw. Can be fan characters or original characters. (I will not draw Yaio, Yuri, or any sexual themed pieces)
Yes, I am still alive. :P Just been really busy with tafe and work.

I am arting but I haven't taken any photos to upload them here. 

More from me later when I can think of some more things to write XD
