Hey everyone! I've burned out recently because of the amount of college work I've been doing (as well as an internship, side projects, etc... :P ) but I'm going to try to do more art. I recently did a digital painting for a fanfiction gift exchange, and everyone loved it so much that... well, I have to do more art now.

It is tough going to art school for Web Design & New Media and trying to draw when you are surrounded by people who are majoring in Illustration and Fine Art and their work is out of this world. I feel like a five year old wielding crayons sometimes. It's been a little off-putting, simply because I have zero confidence in almost everything I do. But since everyone seemed to love my painting, I've realized that my art can be that good if I try harder, learn more, and practice practice practice. I refuse to practice drawing most of the time since I have to turn everything I do into a work of art instead of an exploration, so I get frustrated. No more! I WILL practice now! :D

I'm good friends with some fantastic artists, and one of my best friends is constantly drawing, practicing his art. He forgoes video games, sleep and hanging out for his art, because he understands the importance of practicing. I've gotten lazy! I know I've been busy, but man. I need drive like THAT.

So with any luck, once school gets out I will be going full force with digital paintings, sketches, and more ink and color pencil drawings.

I love you all!

It's amazing how as you live life and have experiences, meet new people, and go to new places, your tastes in both art and music evolve. This is something that is happening to me at the moment, and it couldn't come at a better time. I've started to broaden my music landscape even further. I've started to appreciate modern art a little more, which I have always scoffed at.

I've found many cultures and subcultures of art here in San Francisco, and I have my new friends and the city to thank for this. I hope to start translating my experiences into my art soon. Or as soon as time allows, considering that I am interning at a small design company right now as well as taking some challenging classes this semester.

I just hope I can share everything with you all!

So my second year at Academy of Art University has started, and I'm once again bogged down with work. The semester is already intense, but that's probably my own fault for wanting to digitally illustrate everything... because I got an intuos4 tablet. But yeah. :)

San Francisco is as foggy as ever, so I'm pretty much confined to my computer. With any luck, I'll have more worthwhile digital art to upload once again. We'll see.

:heart: to all, and keep creating!

Hello, everyone! :heart: It has been a while since I've put up any art, hasn't it? It's not that I haven't been doing any, it's just that I haven't found the time or will to scan any of it... :(

I was working on a digital painting that was turning out sooooooo good... and then my hard drive died. So since then, I've been a bit sore with photoshop and haven't found the energy to start another painting. But now I know - back up EVERYTHING. :O

Ugh.

Anyways, I'm entering finals in school, so I might not have any art up for a few weeks, but I will definitely get to it once it hits summer intercession and the summer semester.

At college I am going for a BFA in Web Design and New Media... and I thought that animation, which is part of my major of course, would be my least favorite thing about it. It turns out that I actually really enjoy animating things, especially in Adobe After Effects, and I would love to get better at it and know more about it. This is one of the reasons that since I've gotten CS4 I haven't done too much work in Photoshop - I've spent all my time in After Effects basically.

So once I have some a decent amount of animations good enough to call art, I will see if there is a way I can upload them here. Right now I plan to put them on Vimeo and YouTube.

In the meantime, I guess I have no reason to not be doing digital art, but for some reason I really want to improve my traditional art more than my digital art. In any case, I will start up the digital art again... once I have some ideas executed.

Dreams Contest

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 13, 2009, 3:59 PM
So I am now the quintessential poor art student who doesn't even have the money to do her laundry, let alone get a WACOM tablet or Photoshop CS4... and even though I don't really believe I have a shot to place in the contest, I have an idea for it, so I wanted to ask you guys if it's a good one.

My dream is to never be blinded by ignorance... or in other words, be able to understand things from every point of view. I don't know if the phrase "blinded by ignorance" really translates to that or if I have missed the boat, but either way, my idea is a drawing of me with black eyes. The actual idea is more complicated than that, but I can't really describe it. I will have a preliminary drawing up soon.

So my subscription ran out randomly...

College is wonderful. I've met some really great people here and mostly everyone is really passionate about what they are studying. Its great to be surrounded by such talented people.

I've definitely realized how crappy my traditional art is, and even though I've had access to photoshop for a month I have not done anything with it that anyone can call art. I plan to change that once I get some inspiration again though (and some time.)

I don't really have much to say... just that I'm trying penwork a little more now. Look forward to that. :heart:

College so far...

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 14, 2009, 11:06 AM
It's only been a few weeks here in San Francisco at Academy of Art University, and yet I feel as if I've been here for months. Time seems to be moving very slowly now. To my surprise, I'm actually keeping up with my work... but then again, I've only had four homework assignments.

New artwork is unfortunately coming a little slowly. I just did another oil pastel piece of a flower... I'm not proud of it at all, but I may go ahead and put it up.

I think I'm getting sick - I'm feeling very achy and I'm coughing up a storm. Also, I'm sleeping rather lightly as of late. There are a million reasons as to why this is happening - dorm surrounded by teenagers and germs, being in the city, poor eating habits, etc - so I'm just trying to stay clean and eat regularly so I can get over this thing quickly.

Planning a Tattoo...

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 18, 2009, 12:17 AM
So after the onslaught of an eighteenth birthday, nude celebrity photos, friends moving away, college planning, and a lack of inspiration for art, I have decided that I want to get a tattoo. :P


Now, being an artist, I of course want to make my own. The problem is that I love music, celtic, tribal, and kanji tattoos and can't pick one :D I did a little research on celtic knots, which actually spurred me to create a new art piece, but still no tattoo... and if I get kanji, I can't figure out what I would want it to say...


Maybe I'm overthinking it... but they are permanent, so the thing better be friggin perfect. I don't know. :P


On a happier note, I am now using my ancient YouTube account to put up speedpaintings. "Devour," "Why Don't You Exist," and a new one called "La Isla Bonita" are there now, and there will be more coming. I was going to try something called a deconstruction, which is basically a speedpainting done backwards. :D Of course, nobody actually watches my speedpaintings.... but they are fun to make anyway.


If anyone is attending Academy of Art University in San Francisco this fall, let me know, because I'll be starting there as a freshman to go for a New Media major. I'd love to meet some deviants there :D

Obsession is a GOOD thing!

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 7, 2009, 11:18 AM
I have to be careful before I become too obsessed with art - I just got some oil pastels and some 9"x12" canvas paper, and I can't wait to start working with those. Also I saw some paint markers and oil paints at the store that I really want :P


Unfortunately, life does not wait for me to paint and doodle around, as I have seen the past couple weeks - I have financial aid and scholarship paperwork to fill out and an 18th birthday party to plan for this Saturday... I'm getting better at balancing things but one thing always threatens to take over :D I'm a little stuck for inspiration on the creepy color pencil art front (probably because I have been generally feeling better recently) but since I've started listening to some hardcore hip-hop and metal mix courtesy of brokeNCYDE, I've felt the need to paint some colorful club-art. :D


I will hopefully be attending Academy of Art University of San Francisco this fall (if I can figure out how to come up with the serious bank they are asking for :( ) but in the meantime I've got a summer to work with art skills.

New Mediums!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 12, 2009, 9:57 PM
I somehow managed to sell almost every single one of my colored pencil drawings, earning about $186 total. The only one I have left now is "Growth," which isn't bought because I decided to tweak it. Everyone is insisting that I don't charge enough (all the drawings were under $20 each, and most under $15) but once I start doing some art to be really proud of, I will charge more.


So I took my earnings and went to the craft store... :D


That's right - I now have acrylic paint, watercolors, and more fabulous art supplies that I will be experimenting with. :heart: I'm terrible with paint right now, but will hopefully get better. I only spent... well, anyway :D it's a business expense.


Look forward to some crappy experimentations in the immediate future...

Happenings

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 9, 2009, 5:36 PM
Besides being in a kind of emotional rut (and an everything else rut,) my drawing is expanding, I think. My artwork is taking a kind of creepy turn that my friends wonder at, my parents don't comment on, and I absolutely adore. I'm in the middle of three pieces right now, so hopfully I can upload those sometime soon - Spring Break is this coming week.


During Spring Break I usually just read, draw, stare at my wall, and play video games (after all of which one hour passes and I get bored and start eating peanut butter.) So I thought I should work on some serious things this time around - I am really interested in psychology, so I was going to read my textbooks, and I have the whole college mess to think about (I got accepted into William and Mary, btw :D thanks to some string pulling.)


Anyways, look forward to more blood, veins, and faces made of glass, porcelain and paper. I have to figure out why I draw such things.

I'm also trying to help popular deviants by finding art theft on the internet and sending them notes and messages about it... I hope all of you try to do this as well. Art theft is a big problem that I want to do my part to fix.

PAIN

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 23, 2009, 4:37 PM
I found out the other day that I cannot do a single push-up. So now I'm taking it upon myself to get stronger. It's not like I'm lazy... I just could not physically push myself up. PATHETIC to the MAX. :(


So the majority of my college stuff is done, oh-rah. :D But now I'm getting a job or volunteering... so the time isn't going to really be there. But I have exciting news - I'm expanding once again. I'm working on a surreal piece, as well as a colored pencil work of Barack Obama, our new president. Look forward to that.


I'm hecka loving these new dA pages. They allow so much customization... I really feel like I'm showcased as an artist now (even though I'm not the best artist, I feel... :D )


So... yeah. Maybe I'll get some photography up here FINALLY if I get some damn camera batteries ;P

Horray for finally having the majority of my college stuff done... now I have to get a job :P


I have some new colored pencils to thoroughly maim, so now maybe I can start giving my women some skin color. Even the drawing I did of myself had blue-white skin, and I'm half black. :D So look forward to new colors.


And um... I'm trying to revamp my style again. I'm branching out a bit - I want to go for some more urban stuff, and try my hand at word-art, which I'm terrible at. Also, I might try to perfect my landscape drawing, which I'm also terrible at.


One last thing - one computer at the library has Photoshop on it, so I might have the VERY OCCASIONAL photoshopped thing. Look forward to a vectorized anime drawing and a fantasy landscape - I got halfway through those two before I moved away from my computer.

I have been REALLY bad about keeping up with deviantART the past couple months. With no Photoshop and no computer, it's hard to keep checking it... I had a buildup of 540 messages the other day!


Shame on me, I know. :(


But there is good news - I have uploaded some new drawings for you all. They are mostly colored pencil works, and I hope you like them. There will be more of those forthcoming, as well as some fractal art (I hope) in the near future. That three month absense was bad on my part.


I still love you guys, but it does get hard to update when all I have is my iPod Touch... I'm working off of a library computer right now, amidst my college research and fanfiction updates. Yay, multitasking.


Yes, it's that time of year... college stuff. So I might be on hiatus for a little bit - or until February.

Hey everyone; I know I haven't uploaded anything in almost three months... has it been that long? I'm ashamed of myself.

Here's the thing - I need a new computer which will be able to run my beautiful new Adobe CS3. I am working off a Windows 2003 laptop... that is really slow. The only art I have been doing is some drawing and some fractal art, which I will attempt to upload soon. For whatever reason, my computer does not like deviantART.

Also, my regular website needs updating as well... but my time to do such things is now extremely limited, as I have two AP classes this year and a job at Hot Topic. So... I am truly sorry guys. I'll try to get my paws on a scanner as soon as possible to upload my drawings... and I'll let you know when the Photoshopiness will start churning out once again.

I love you all!

Photomanipulation Contest


For the photomanipulation contest I ran with rosinangel, here are the winners:

FIRST PLACE: The Butterfly Effect by *octobre-rouge


Butterfly Effect by octobre-rouge by :iconoctobre-rouge:

… for the creative use of color, brushes, and photomanipulation to convey a theme. One glance is not enough for this piece; take a second look and you’ll notice things that you didn’t before. “The Butterfly Effect” by *octobre-rouge is a very sophisticated and professional looking piece that belongs in the pages of a magazine.

Other works by the artist:

SECOND PLACE: Walking in the Limelight by =Initio


:thumb81210189: by :iconinitio:

… for the beautiful retouching and interesting colors. “Walking in the Limelight” by =Initio is a beautiful piece that uses what would otherwise be an unusual, pukey green as the skin color that just makes her face glow. The makeup, also, is very well done; as everyone knows, adding eyelashes is a tedious process, but these don’t even look photoshoped. I forsee a career in photo touch-ups.

Other works by the artist:

:thumb86580097: Blue Stairs by Initio :thumb84562198:

THIRD PLACE: Submerged by ~Artistic-One


:thumb83099325: by :iconartistic-one:

… for the creative idea and nicely done execution. I looked at this piece and said, “How did this person even DO the water? I wish I could do water like that!” The makeup and hue of the face matches well with the water and the idea, and the best possible image was chosen for this piece. “Submerged” by ~Artistic-One conveys so many ideas about emotions and depth – it is a piece laden with meaning.

Thank you to everyone that entered. The choices were all excellent, and chosing among them was difficult – but we have decided. Remember that creativity was the main thing we were looking for.

A Statement


:heart: Please go here and help out this deviant- news.deviantart.com/article/41…

I love deviantART and its community so much. Ever since I came here, I have been blown away by the amazingtasticness (real word, I assure you :D ) of the artwork. Of course, I have gone through rough times here, but everything has been a learning experience, and I can definitely say that I am glad for all of it.

I have always thought that as soon as I become popular on dA, I want to give back - because I understand what it is like to struggle for pageviews and faves. :D I'm not quite there yet, but I'm not waiting to help people get noticed anymore - I wanna help!

I'm also trying to help popular deviants by finding art theft on the internet and sending them notes and messages about it... I hope all of you try to do this as well. Art theft is a big problem that I want to do my part to fix.

Whew. Ghandi moment there.

In Alaska... WITH SO MUCH TO DO

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 6, 2008, 11:24 AM
So as some of you know, I am currently in Alaska, and let me tell you - it is absolutely beautiful here in Anchorage. We live right across from a lake where sea planes take off and land (which is a bit noisy during the day, but whatever) and we are surrounded on three sides by tall, dark, and snow capped mountains. Also, since it is the summer time, it is at least 60 degrees every day and there is almost constant daylight.


I am getting some good pictures in right now, so as soon as I can get a new computer and Photoshop set up on it, I will be updating with a lot of photos and some digital art. I have a few images that I did before I left for Alaska to upload, so you guys might see those in a couple of days... but I have a shitload of things to do in this area. :( My website needs updating on a majoy level, I have an avatar I need to find on my old hard drive :( and I have a CSS journal to finish for my first place contest winner, not to mention the Roman Gods contest for Care-Club ends at the end of the month and I need to get cracking on the entry for it.


In the meantime, I haven't been doing much art... just a few drawings.


Anyways, bye for now. I'll update with those things as soon as I can.

Council has deliberated, and we have chosen the first second, and third place. Here are the winners:

FIRST PLACE: The Butterfly Effect by *octobre-rouge

Butterfly Effect by octobre-rouge by :iconoctobre-rouge:

… for the creative use of color, brushes, and photomanipulation to convey a theme. One glance is not enough for this piece; take a second look and you’ll notice things that you didn’t before. “The Butterfly Effect” by *octobre-rouge is a very sophisticated and professional looking piece that belongs in the pages of a magazine.

SECOND PLACE: Walking in the Limelight by =Initio

:thumb81210189:  by :iconinitio:

… for the beautiful retouching and interesting colors. “Walking in the Limelight” by =Initio is a beautiful piece that uses what would otherwise be an unusual, pukey green as the skin color that just makes her face glow. The makeup, also, is very well done; as everyone knows, adding eyelashes is a tedious process, but these don’t even look photoshoped. I forsee a career in photo touch-ups.

THIRD PLACE: Submerged by ~Artistic-One

:thumb83099325:  by :iconartistic-one:

… for the creative idea and nicely done execution. I looked at this piece and said, “How did this person even DO the water? I wish I could do water like that!” The makeup and hue of the face matches well with the water and the idea, and the best possible image was chosen for this piece. “Submerged” by ~Artistic-One conveys so many ideas about emotions and depth – it is a piece laden with meaning.
