Juliana1121's Journal - Updates

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 15, 2018, 6:32 PM


Hello everyone.

Once again, I'm sorry I haven't been around much (I do check my messages from time to time)
This is just an update since my last one was back in June.

Personal life updates:

If you have read my previous updates, you'd know that I haven't been well due to some personal issues.
I would still want to keep most of it a secret. It's been an emotional ride for everyone involved (or at least to the people I know about). I still do hope everything will be ok, but sometimes it feels like it's only going downhill.
I have disclosed the details of what happened and how I have been to very few trusted people, so if you know, you know.

I am still depressed, as I was in the months since it happened. I still have emotional breakdowns, which have been happening mostly in the nighttime. As a result, I have been crying myself to sleep most nights. I have gained a bit of weight back (mostly due to forcing myself to eat properly), but not much has changed. I am doing my best, though.

Other things have happened, which have contributed to it, on top of what happened:
  • Many health problems in my family. My brother and my grandma - mother's side - will have surgeries later this week and the next, respectively. My brother is due to a respiratory problem he was born with and that got worse (that made him unable to breathe through his nose and while the surgery he will have to do is normally a simple procedure, the complications made it more difficult to operate). My grandma has a tumour on her parathyroid - she had another one some years ago in a different part - which is now being investigated as a possible hereditary problem - so all her children will have to go to São Paulo to do a very expensive exam, which is only available in one hospital. Other than that, my mother's heart problem (which she was born with) seems to have gotten worse - it's still being investigated - so she might have to do a heart surgery soon as well. My other grandma - father's side - recently found out she has leukaemia and is getting treatment. As for me, my exams have shown that I am now more prone to having heart attacks and I am investigating another problem, which the best scenario is will go away and the worst will cause me to have to stay in the hospital for a long period of time.
  • There have been some problems with my family's businesses, which are being dealt with but will cause us to have to let a few people go. As we are small businesses (with less than 10 people combined), it is especially hard as people that work there are like family to us and we have been doing our best to find a solution that allows us to at least keep it open (we almost closed down a few years ago) and to help people we will have to let go to find jobs elsewhere. On top of that, my mother is having to deal with twice the workflow she normally has as one of the associates of the law firm moved to the US earlier this month and left many unfinished cases behind (as she decided to not keep working on it from there, even though she would have the means to. Oh, and she told my mother that in the day she finished moving. Yeaaah.).
  • Problems that occurred in the past (2014-2015, for those who know) have been haunting me and pretty much destroying the little self-esteem and motivation I have left. That got worse last Saturday as something related to it happened and caused me to have panic attacks and an emotional breakdown. I didn't sleep much at all and have been having nightmares related to it. I have no idea how long that will last. Again, the few trusted people know what it is about, but I'd rather not talk about it.
In other news: Test weeks will start this week, so don't expect many posts (I'll try to squeeze some work in between them as I did a fantastic job as class representative spacing them out so everyone would have time to study - as we still have classes during these weeks and they happen most days from 8 am to 5 pm and we can't really afford to miss any c: ). I have finished organising stuff so I can start working on my final work as well, so I'll be including that in my schedule.
Presidential elections are coming and that has been worrying me a lot lately. I have been doing my best to keep up with the candidates' government plans and agendas, but that is only increasing my worries (Reading the foreign policy part as an International Affairs graduate and Economics student is rough. Especially when you know the possible negative effects of some of the measures - especially when they are fucking repeating mistakes of other leaders >>)

About deviantART and drawings

I have been working on what I have to work on in traditional media because my tablet is still only working once in a blue moon (and I know it's an issue with my pc and not the tablet itself but I can't really afford to do anything about it now). So, unfortunately, I can't work on anything digital for now.
I haven't been drawing much for myself as most of the drawings I make just reflect my emotions and/or I leave unfinished because I can't find the motivation to finish.

I should be posting some drawings soon, but that depends on my test weeks and how chaotic they can get (even though I did my best to make it work in the least stressful way, it always finds a way)

I do recommend participating in my public Discord, The Mermaid Pond, as I am there daily and post updates from time to time.
Here's a link to it: discord.gg/2tXTY9P

I guess that's all I want to share, for now.
Thanks for reading.

Juliana1121's Journal - Updates

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 7, 2017, 9:06 AM


Hi everyone!
How have you been?

It's been a while since I updated this journal. I've been a bit busy with college and graduation stuff. Hopefully, I can figure out a way to organise everything I have to do soon.

Life updates:
My classes restarted this week (on Monday), even though technically they began in the second week of the month (because we had a week that pretty much was 1 semester in a week - including tests! We only had one subject for the whole week: Information Systems - or how I call it: Excel, with a bit of Economics and VBA. The class in the semester was supposed to be 36 hours total and in a week from 8 AM to 5 PM covers that and gives us some extra time. It was interesting to have a subject like that, even though it would probably be quite complicated to do that with other subjects. I did pass it with the maximum grade so that's one less subject to worry about :))

In my college, because of how many Economy subjects we have in our International Relations course, with even the same teachers and stuff, we can stay for an extra year (or 1 year and a half if you choose to do it at night) and we get a degree in Economics when we complete the subjects we didn't have yet + our final work for Economics.
That happens because they take the subjects we already took in IR and consider them as "completed", because technically we already passed in them. That is completely legal, is allowed by the Ministry of Education (there's another college I know of that managed to get the approval for that too) and the "compensation" for already studied subjects in colleges and universities is quite common here, even if you are studying in a different college and transfers to another one, you can ask for that and, after some analysis, they can decide to consider the subject as completed or not, based on many criterias, normally related to the content of the subject, compared to the content of the same subject in the other course.
There is a whole formal process for that and we can only do it in certain conditions, but we basically sign a new contract and become Economics students, then we sign a document asking for those subjects to be considered as completed, they analyse those subjects and compare them to the actual Economics course ones and since we normally have the exact same thing as they do, it gets accepted. We call it "5th Year - Economics-International Relations (5th ECO-IR - or 5º ECO-RI in Portuguese, in short) because only International Relations students can do it - even though we have some classes together with the regular students of Economics.

So now I'm an Economics student and I have another final work to write! (That's basically it) :)
My graduation ceremony and party for my International Relations degree will happen next Friday and Saturday (2nd and 3rd of March), so I have been running around getting things done for that (looking for dresses, getting them altered so they fit me, scheduling things, inviting people and making sure they have where to stay, etc), so things have been a bit hectic lately. There were also some problems and a lot changed, so I had to re-do a lot of things to adapt to that.
For now, I’m concentrating on deadlines and priorities so everything is done until then. 

Commissions and other art-related stuff updates:

I’m currently working on SaphaiaNefertiti’s commissions. One of them should be done either this week or the next one (depending on graduation and college stuff), as I'm in colouring stage and the palette for the design was already approved.

I have also linearted the next two commissions (Punisher2006's and Crash-the-Megaraptor's commissions) because I was in a linearting mood (and as those are rare, I tend to concentrate on it), so now I only have to colour them, whenever I'm done with Saph's commissions :)

Since I had some extra time while I was in college and I had brought my sketchbook with me, I sketched all the QTE event prizes as they were all chibis.

That's all for today!
Thanks for reading ~ :star:

-------------------------------------------------------

Hello everyone and welcome to the 3rd edition of my 15 Days Suggestion Challenge! :D


What is the 15 Days Suggestion Challenge?

It's a challenge I started doing every year since 2013. Basically, I get character suggestions from my watchers every day for 15 days straight and draw one of the suggestions for each day (which is chosen randomly using random.org) :D

How it will work:

The challenge is simple: I will draw 1 character per day during 15 days and that character will be picked by you!
In this journal you can suggest characters for the following day. It will be updated everyday with the results (who was picked to be drawn that day + the printscreen of the random.org results) and with the list of characters that can't be picked. You can suggest ONLY 3 characters and all of them must be eligible (see the rules for suggesting below).

Rules:

Here's the comic version of the rules, if you'd like to check them out:
2015 - 15 Days Suggestion Challenge Rules by Juliana1121

Suggestion rules:

1. You can suggest characters from all genders or genderless.
2. You can only suggest THREE characters per day.
3. You can only suggest characters in the Suggestion challenge journal comments (I'll confirm your suggestions after checking them to see if they are eligible).
4. Only suggestions by 11:59 pm BRST will be valid for the following day.
5. You can't suggest a character that was suggested the day before or that already was drawn for the challenge - that includes the previous challenges -> There will be a list, so please check it before suggesting
6. Only canon characters are accepted (so no ocs, sorry. Be sure to include from which series that character is from because there are characters that have the same name in different series).
7. The character can't be: furries or non-official genderbent character (Exception: Undertale characters. Any non-undertale character that I consider ok may be voted in a poll).
8. Nothing 18+ (so hentai anime/manga/games characters are a no-no).
9. No overdetailed characters.

If you aren't sure if you can suggest a certain character (for example, if I consider it overdetailed or not), please ask

List of characters that can't be suggested:

Super quick update - Happy Birthday Catjubox!

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 6, 2015, 7:19 PM
Hi! Just some quick updates:

1. Today is Catjubox's birthday. To those unfamiliar with her, Catjubox is the Mermaid's Bubblebath's mascot (a chat in Skype I'm in).
She was created thanks to :icongoldlinaric:'s attempt to come up with a nickname that would bother me back when the chat had another name. One of them was "Jubox", so I drew myself in a box and later on decided to add cat ears. From a random 2-minute joke doodle, Catjubox started growing on me and becoming a character of its own, appearing more and more in the chat, until she later become its "mascot" (She is sort of my personal mascot too, but I'm still considering that part).
Due to her origin being a random doodle, one of her traits is that she is extremely random (which I love playing with and I do say that little is known about Catjubox or Catboxes in general). Another thing is that she, for some reason, has a deep love for boxes. She has different forms, being one of them Catjupumpkin, that appeared in my Halloween drawing last year:
Happy Halloween! by Juliana1121

I decided (for personal reasons) to create a second account on deviantart, which I named after her and to which I uploaded a doodle I did long ago for her second birthday:
Catjubox's 2nd birthday by Catjubox

So yeah, it's the second year since Catjubox was "discovered", so Happy Birthday Catjubox!


2. I'm currently in the US for a study trip (the college I'm in sends their best students abroad in study trips and I got to go in one again - which isn't that common. I'm in Washington DC as of now but I'll soon head with the other students to NYC). That's why I haven't been active lately. There is a collab I did with TheGamingCentaur that is scheduled since around mid-April to go up on the 16th so be in the lookout for that.

That's all for now ~
Thank you for reading ~


2015: 2014 Review and what to expect for this year

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 2, 2015, 9:50 AM


Hello everyone!
How was 2014 for you? What are your expectations for 2015?

Well, for me, as it was for many people I know, 2014 was a shitty year.

I spent New Year's Eve with my best friend. My mother let me do it because I had already spent Christmas at the hospital with my dad and she wanted me to have fun. A few days later, my father came back home.

In 24th January (9 pm BRST), I lost my father. For 4 years, he was fighting against his second cancer (he survived another when he was my age) and it had finally gone away with all that came from it (His kidneys stopped working at a time and started working again, he had to remove one lung because he had cancer in the pleura - a membrane that covers the lungs and other stuctures - and when they removed the part that had cancerous cells on it, they had to remove it too and many other things).
In the last months, he seemed to be recovering really well and the doctors said that, with treatment, he'd be able to live for many years. He went to the hospital for exams and got pneumonia there. As he only had one lung and was still weak, they had to put him in a coma so his body could fight against it better. But sadly, he didn't wake up again.

A few days after the funeral, we moved back to our house (we were preparing it so he could go back home from the hospital). My brother and mother didn't want to eat or sleep or would sleep the whole day. I did my best to be strong and not let them see me cry so I could be a support for them. I'd wait for them to go to sleep so I could cry silently.

My brother started thinking about suicide. He attempted it by starving to death (we had to force him to eat) and I don't doubt he would try in other ways if we left him alone. He started getting bad grades and sometimes to his day still says to my mother that it would be better if he was dead so she wouldn't have to be worried about him and that he wants to die to see my dad again. He was diagnosed with depression and is under psychological treatment.

A few days after we moved, I started going to college. It was really tough as I didn't know anyone and I still was really sad. As people started to find out what happened, they started to treat me differently. I knew some of the students from later years from the Model United Nations event from 2013 that took place there so I started getting along with them and in March joined the Model United Nations event team for 2014. My dog Anick died about a week after I started college. I got really sad about it too. She died as we tried to get her to the vet. Closed her eyes and was dead. She looked like she was just taking a nap.

My best friend wouldn't talk to me and I didn't know why. This affected me a lot and whenever I thought about it, I'd just get really sad and didn't want to talk to anyone. I tried to contact her many times and to understand what happened (seems like I said something at my father's funeral or something). I spent pretty much the whole year trying to get along with her again and for a few moments it seemed like things were going to go back to normal again, only for a moment later to get worse. Little things like deleting me from her skype contact list and other stuff started to really get to me. I talked about it a lot - sometimes I'd spend the whole day talking about it - with my boyfriend and a few friends and in November 2014 I decided to just let it go. 

Some days were really tough for me, my brother and my mother. Days like my father's b-day and Father's Day were some of the worse. We tried to pretend Father's Day (which is in August here) wasn't on that day but all the advertising wouldn't let us. We then spent the whole day inside and watched stuff on Netflix so we wouldn't watch ads about it and stuff. My boyfriend was there to as he wanted to make me feel better.

There were a lot of other stuff that happened. Many people near me died and many things happened to people I know (like to GoldLinaric, that I know that probably had a worse year if not as shitty as mine and to Peach-X-Yoshi that lost her mother recently). Sometimes I tried to talk to them and sometimes I just didn't know what to say so I'd just keep silent but I know that I did feel bad for all that happened to them and I wished I could do more.
At one point, I did also think about suicide and was really depressed (I know it is weird as most of the times I just seem to be a really cheerful person). I even almost broke up with my boyfriend ("almost" because he didn't accept it and said many times for me to be sure about it because he wouldn't come back to me if we did break up so I gave up). My friends (here on dA, it was mostly GoldLinaric and IRL it was mostly one of my seniors that became a really good friend of mine and that I help in studying the subjects he failed and is trying to pass so he can get his diplom) , my boyfriend and family helped me a lot and tried to make me feel better so I'm really grateful for all they did for me.

Even if many bad things happened to me in 2014 (I only put a few of them here, there's a lot of other stuff like financial problems and other problems but I don't want to talk about them here), a lot of good stuff happened too.
I got better at my drawings, I made new friends, I got great grades (as I'm doing my best because I know that my father would be proud of me), learned a lot of new stuff and many other things. 

My greatest expectation for 2015 is to it to be better than 2014. Not only for me, but to everyone. I really hope that it will be so.

What to expect from me this year? Well, art-wise, I'll try to get better at some stuff (*cough cough* Anatomy *cough* Backgrounds *cough* Other stuff *cough cough* Ahem.) and get more art for you. I'll try to be more active on youtube too (*stares at TP Zelda video that was supposed to be up in 2013*). I can't promise because I don't know how it will be but I'll do my best at it ^^
I plan to get my driver license this year too (you can only get it when you are older than 18 years old) and continue to get good grades.

Last but not least, I'd like to thank all of my lovely watchers, from the bottom of my heart, for your support, from the ones that have been here for a while to the new ones. It means a lot to me that so many people enjoy my artwork enough to click the +watch button or to leave a comment. This makes me want to continue drawing and getting better and better so thank you, very, very, veeeeery much >v<
A special thanks to my commissioners for the extra support and for the patience when I'm late ^^ (hehe, sorry about that ^^; Working on it ^^;) Thanks to you, I was able to support some artists too and also was able to get new supplies so I can use them to try to improve my drawings. I'm really grateful for all the commissions I got! >v< Thank you A TON for believing in me and in my art ^^ :tighthug: I hope it was worth it (and please let me know if it wasn't o.o) :)

4) If you want to change something in your commission, please inform me the soon as you can. If I've already started your commission, I'll try to add or remove what you wanted changed but there's no garantee that I can do it...it depends on which part I'm on. (For example, if I'm in the
coloring part, I probably can't do it but if I'm in rough sketch or sketch - sometimes lineart too - I can)

5) Packages available! (2 Chibis = Package, for example).

6) Please ask permission to the person who owns the oc if it's not yours BEFORE commissioning me. The exception would be if it's a surprise gift (or if the character was co-created by me or if it's my oc) or something like it.

7) If you'd like to post your commission somewhere (like your gallery or outside dA), please ask for my permission beforehand and post the link to the original drawing in the description.

8) And most importantly: I'LL TAKE THE TIME I NEED TO DO YOUR COMMISSION so DO NOT SPAM my profile page or my notes asking things like "Where's my commission" or "Why is it taking so long?". If you insist on spamming (like commenting 50 times a day or something  like that), I'll CANCEL your commission and won't refund the points.

Failure to abide those rules will get you blacklisted.

QTE: Winners!

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 23, 2014, 6:58 PM
Hello everyone!

I'm sorry it took me so long to decide the winners (there were many good themes there!)

Each theme will be used in a set of 3-5 adoptables (it depends on how many I can create)

Well, here they are (in no particular order):

1. Flowers (suggested by GoldLinaric)

2. The elements (suggested by Punisher2006)

3. Roman/Greek Mythology (suggested by GoldLinaric)

4. Western Zodiac (suggested by Punisher2006)

5. Magic girls (suggested by GoldLinaric)

6. Eastern Zodiac (suggested by Punisher2006)

7. Mermaids ( (suggested by Punisher2006)

To the winners: please send me a note with the characters you'd like chibis of and the media you'd like them to be - digital or traditional - it doesn't have to be the same for all the chibis!)

Thanks to everyone that participated and congratulations to the winners!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The title says it all. I haven't done these kinds of events in a long time so, here you go!

All you have to do is:

1. Comment in this poll: juliana1121.deviantart.com/jou…
2. Be my watcher before 23/06/2014
3. Make sure that the theme wasn't suggested yet. (First person suggesting it, wins!)

You can comment as many times as you like. I'll choose 7 themes and the people who suggested them, will get a chibi from me! (You can choose if it's a traditional or digital colored chibi. Only one character!)

I'll use the themes for adoptables that I'll do in the near future.

1 theme chosen = 1 chibi

This is a quick time event and will end on 30th June.

Good luck!

EDIT: The first set of adoptables is already being made and its theme is "Cold colors", so that theme is out! (If you'd like to see a preview of them, please send me a note)

Secret Santa Event 2018 - Notes being sent

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 3, 2013, 11:51 AM
Hello everyone! How are you doing? :)
I'm sorry I haven't been around that much. I'm also sorry I haven't posted this before. I'm still struggling with all that happened.

This year, like the last one, I decided to host a Secret Santa event ~

As we are already in November, I'll keep the sign ups open only until this Sunday (that should give everyone a month and a week) and, after that, I'll close the list and send notes to people who joined it with the person they should be gifting.

Just like last year, this event will only happen if there are at least 5 people, myself included, joining the event! We have reached the minimum participant number!

Feel free to share the event if you want to c:
------------------------------------------------------------
FAQ
1. What is a Secret Santa Event?
Well, it's an event in which a person makes a gift for someone else - that is predefined - without they knowing about it until the gift is up.

2. How do I join it?
Just leave a comment below saying you want to join it! :) (You don't have to be my watcher, even though it would be nice so you don't miss any updates!)
Make sure to read the rules before you do!
You have until the 19th of November 2018, 11:59 pm BRST to join ~

But please, ONLY ENTER IF YOU ARE SURE YOU CAN FINISH YOUR GIFT BEFORE THE DEADLINE!
Failure to finish the gift before the deadline will get you blacklisted unless there is a valid excuse (such as hospitalization, accidents, etc) and I'm informed of it from the days prior to the deadline up to 1 month after the end of the event.

3. When is the deadline for the gift?
25th of December 2018 (yes, I'll consider it until the last minute of the 25th worldwide)
Please don't post it until the 1st of December, though!
(In the past years, people posting waaaay before the deadline caused some stress and spoiled the event outcome for some)

4. Who will I be gifting?
Once the entering time is done, I'll put all the names into Random.org and shuffle it. Then you'll receive a note informing who you will be making a gift for.

In the spirit of the event, please be nice to whoever makes you a gift! The whole point of the event is to have fun, trade gifts and possibly meet new friends! - Failure to abide by that will cause you to be blacklisted in the event!

5. Does it have to be a drawing?
Well, I had some problems in a previous SS event that I allowed stories and such so I'll leave it limited to drawings, animations and stuff like that.
Please do your best to it.
Imagine how bad it would be if you did a really awesome gift and got a half-assed sketch. You'd feel bad, wouldn't you?
So, to prevent that, I ask all of you to put a lot of effort so everyone may be happy with their gift ~

6. Can I tell the person I'm going to gift that I'm their Secret Santa?
NO. It's called SECRET Santa for a reason. So please DON'T DO THAT. (It happened in another year I hosted my SS. Please DON'T DO that)

7. But...what should I draw?
Well, look their gallery to see what they like and start from that. You could draw their character or one of their favourite characters, something related to a certain show/game/series they like...the possibilities are endless!
Some people put up Secret Santa Wishlist Journals too so be on the lookout for those as well.
(If you read the rules up until here, add "cookie" to your comment to validate your entry)
You may request a wishlist from the person you are doing the gift for, but please request it by note to ME and I'll request it (To prevent the said person of knowing you are the one making a gift for them. It would be no fun to find about it like that).

8. I don't get it. Could you explain again?
Well, I'm taking this from Crash-the-Megaraptor's Secret Santa event's journal. That's how it goes:

Person A is Person B's Secret Santa.
Person B does not know this until the gift is given.
Person B may be Person C's Secret Santa
Person C doesn't know who it is until THEY get their gift

That's all :)

I might ask for more information to know the character better to see how he or she would act in a specific scene.
Also if you have any questions about whether or not something would be ok, please include them in the Details section.

Commission requests out of notes will be ignored

2) There some things I simply WON'T draw (I have the right
to decline it and I will.) I also can cancel it and send back the points/money if I reconsider your commission as something I wouldn't draw for some reason. (I'll make sure to let you know the reason for it).

3) Sometimes I put a basic background (meaning, a plain color) in the digital no-background commissions so if you want the background to be white or transparent (for digital ones), please inform me.

4) If you want to change something in your commission, please inform me the soon as you can. If I've already started your commission, I'll try to add or remove what you wanted to be changed but there's no guarantee that I can do it...it depends on which part I'm on. (For example, if I'm in the
colouring part, I probably can't do it but if I'm in rough sketch or sketch - sometimes lineart too - I can)

5) Packages available! (2 Chibis = Package, for example) - DOESN'T APPLY TO CHARACTER DESIGNS

6) Please ask permission to the person who owns the oc if it's not yours BEFORE commissioning me. The exception would be if it's a surprise gift (or if the character was co-created by me or if it's my oc) or something like it.

7) If you'd like to post your commission somewhere (like your gallery or outside dA), please ask for my permission beforehand and post the link to the original drawing in the description.

8) And most importantly: I'LL TAKE THE TIME I NEED TO DO YOUR COMMISSION so DO NOT SPAM my profile page or my notes asking things like "Where's my commission" or "Why is it taking so long?". If you insist on spamming (like commenting 50 times a day or something like that), I'll CANCEL your commission and won't refund the points.

Failure to abide those rules will get you blacklisted.
