Hey guys!! So as I was having an existential crisis earlier, I realized I wanted to do more with my life. I feel like I'm meant to be doing something, something more, something, ANYTHING, than what I am doing now. I think I want to start doing youtube videos, like tags and challenges, but I need your help! First, I need to atleast get to 100 subs so my youtube channel link will look nicer than this: www.youtube.com/channel/UCuJkS…
Ew.
Also, I need your support! I know I'm kinda too late to jump on the band wagon, and I don't know if people will even want to watch me! But I have to atleast try. You guys have given me so much over here at dA, and I can't ever thank you enough for the wonderful, special, sweet friends I've made. So if you don't mind, I would like to ask you one more favor! Please share my channel link around, and ask people to subscribe! I will do livestreams and draw requests for those who are subbed! I will post drawing videos and vlogs and anything you guys think you would like to see!! Just let me know! This summer is coming up in a few weeks and I don't have summer classes so I want to focus on getting the ball rolling on my youtube channel.
Please help spread the word! I love you guys so much <3 <3 <3 <3

Hey guys!!! I'm in Ohio right now for Matsuricon! With DoubleTroubleWolves !! Anyone up for a meet up?! Also why are there so many Drowzees here???
HI MY BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ugh It's been almost a year since I've been on here, I don't even know if people still watch this account!! ^^; Just wanted to apologize for being gone so long, college, boyfriend off in the army, and working two jobs has really required me to be paying attention. I realized i didn't want to draw as much since I'd owed people so much. I think I will be keeping this account now just for my personal drawings, however I am very open to the idea of doing requests streams as often as I can! So basically I am going to "start over" on this account! I hope you guys forgive me for disappearing and enjoy all my personal and requests I'll be posting here from now on!
What have you guys been up to? I've missed you all so so much <3
x Ravine
Hey ya'll, it's been ages and ages I KNOW!! I'm so sorry life has been getting in the way in every way it can ;A;
But I wanted to draw again, and lo and behold my Sai stopped working... So if anyone has a working file of Sai and/or Photoshop please link me up!
OR if you have the file and can send it to me via Skype, that would be amazing as well! xjamie.mariex is my skype name :3

Relationship Problems? Q n' A:

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 10, 2014, 9:03 PM


Hey guys, I've recently had a few friends come to me asking for advice on their relationships. This works for boys AND girls, so feel free to ask about either one. So I'm going to write a general paragraph about how I feel a relationship works (this works with friendships, too!) And then you can ask me any specific questions you have in the comments! I will add them to the journal because maybe your situation is the same thing someone else is having! (or you can note me in privacy and I will keep them confident)

Girlfriends
The thing you need to know about girls, is that they love to be loved. Whether it be romantically, or friendly, or even comically, girls love to feel wanted. Ask yourself, "what's one thing I can do for her today, that will she will really like?" Whether it be a little note, just reminding her that you're thinking of her, or a flower picked from your back yard and a few words of how much she means to you. GIRLS LOVE THE LITTLE THINGS!!!!! Try and always see things from her point of view and always be open for new ways to come to a conclusion. You love us and we will love you back x10 more.
 
Questions:

    -Answer:
-------------------------
Boyfriends
Let me just start off by saying there are two words to describe boys:
INNOCENT & IGNORANT
What I mean by this is boys are not mind readers, and boys are not Fabios riding in on a great white stallions in shining armor. They're just men. They don't read romance novels, so don't expect them to act like it. They also can't read your mind, so don't act like it. TELL THEM!!!!! TELL THEM WHEN SOMETHING BOTHERS YOU! Honestly guys, boys like food, games, and kisses. All three of those things and you've got them happiest boyfriend in the world. Seriously, just simple things make a guy happy, they like an uncomplicated, easy life, which is all the more easier for us!
Okay, let's get this out of the way now: I am probably the MOST jealous person you'll ever meet; ESPECIALLY .... ESPECIALLLYYYYYYY when it comes to my boyfriend. I'm like an angry mama bear with her cubs, you just don't get NEAR MY BABIES. However, boys see this as a turn OFF. That's clingy my friends and it's the hardest thing in the world to mask over but I do it because honestly it just freaks them out xD Boys are so ignorant, 98% of the time, when you're in a relationship where you both truly love eachother, the boys think nothing of other girls. They don't see anything wrong with hanging out with another girl or maybe talking to another girl in the hallway, BECAUSE THEY'RE THINKING OF YOU! They're not like girls, they don't over think every single little thing like we do! x'D So try and tell yourself they're being innocent! 99% the time the girl isn't because bitches are bitches but you just have to have enough TRUST in your relationship that they won't fall into the girl's trust because he doesn't want to be there, he wants to be with you. So try not to get all over emotional with it and just calmly TELL HIM when you don't like him talking to a girl so much and he'll be happy to make it better, I promise!

Questions:

-------------------------
YOU!
Guys, girls, everyone.... confidence is SEXY. Confidence is the best quality in a friend, girlfriend, boyfriend. People are just naturally DRAWN to confident people, and will swarm and consume entirely every word a confident person says. I promise, confidence will unlock so many doors and opportunities for you, and they will heal any relationship. 

COMMUNICATION!! I've said it once and I will say it a millions times, PEOPLE ARE NOT MIND READERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not a single person can tell even with body language what is happening in your mind, SO SPEAK IT!! The second you let it out you will feel better and the person trying to help with find it so much easier to make things better because atleast they know what they're working with, SO TELL THEM!

Self worth.... I know a lot of people struggle with this one. Guys, I'm serious, each and every one of you is so beautiful, inside and out. I love each one of my watchers with such passion that you'd swear you guys are my children. Seriously, I love you guys. Never, I repeat, please never let yourself settle for less than you're worth. You're so important and so wonderful and never tell yourself otherwise. You're born by yourself and you die by yourself so atleast make sure you love yourself. Only you can tell yourself who to be, so when you wake up in the morning, you need to ask yourself:

"Am I going to believe what these fools say about me today?"

No. Absolutely not, you know who you really are, and the more you come to terms with it the more people around you realize it to. /confidence/ Never settle for less, and never let people use you. Never. Always strive to be the kind of person people look up to. If you think you'd like it if someone came up and said hi to you, be that person, and you will receive. If you think your friend might like if you got them their favorite candy and just tell them how much you mean to me, they're so much more likely to give it back. Be the person you'd like to see in other people, and you can change so many people's lives ESPECIALLY your own. = )

  HEY GUYS!!!!!
Eeee wow my life you guys. Like, really... wow. I've been so busy busy busy!!!!!
Let's start off from this summer! This summer I got an internship with Empire Ballroom studios by where I live, and I am working with the most amazing instuctors that Florida has to offer. Maybe even on a bigger scale. I have been learning and training so hard, and I will try my best to get some videos up... If you're interested? I have been working every day at the Bounce House place I have been with for awhile. (Running the shop, throwing the parties, etc. etc.) And every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday (and WHENEVER else I can) I am in at the studio dancing with my dance partner.
SPEAKING OF
I am currently dating, yes dating, my dance partner. His name is Chase and I couldn't ask for a better man to have this journey with! He pushed me to take on this dream, and I'm so blessed he'll be right beside me through it all. Currently my best friend (Christine! she wants to do stage make up and special effects) and I are working on getting a job and apartment in Tampa, working for Busche Garden's and maybe Disney, and once Chase graduates (yes he's a few months younger than me) then we are on our way to working on CRUISE SHIPS BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH! We are going on one in January with the studio and I can't even describe how exited I am! After a few years of traveling the world and teaching and inspiring others to dance, I will head back to college and get my teaching degree :3 Then when I finish college the studio I work with will hopefully have the second studio open and my boss offered me a job there. And I hope to open a special program for teaching special education kids. Wow- I'm just so excited you guys.
So, sorry I haven't been putting up much art lately. My mind is in a million different places so I'm sorry if I owe you something. I promise it will get to you! Just keep reminding me, okay?
Thanks for understanding guys!

Any questions? Ask me!
Seriously, tho, what's going on in your life? Tell me EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!


Love you all sooooo much,
Ravine
Hey ya'll! I'm sure a lot of you have been wondering where I've been lately. Currently for the past few weeks I've had my best friend from Missouri in town, and we've been doing a whole LOT together!!! :) I'm also busy with my two jobs and my boyfriend and I have been working very hard towards getting a job on a cruise ship, so we've been dancing and practicing every chance we get! I don't think I'll be very active again until early-mid August to be honest, so I'm sorry for all those waiting for art. I know what I have to do and believe it or not I have been slowly slowly working on different projects! :3 Anyway, sorry for the absence. I miss you guys so much! <3

:star: ALSO!! I will be cleaning out my gallery soon! If you want some of your art, message me and I can send you the file. HURRY BEFORE IT'S GONE!!! :star:

My art sold for 450$!!

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 26, 2014, 1:49 PM


So this past month or so, I've been involved with something called Heart and Soul
It's a district wide organization that takes the top 20 entries of about 150 and uses their art in auction to raise money for the schools in the district! It's a very honorable and high-class event and I got a good chunk of scholarship money just for being in the top 20! I went to the gala last night and met some wonderful kids, and my art piece sold for 450 dollars and was bought by the superintendent's wife who told me she wanted my painting very bad. I'm blessed she bought it and I couldn't imagine ever being in something like this. Here's the painting for those interested:

Bob by LittleRavine

The piece is acrylic on Illustration board, and yes, that is my baby boy, Bob. :heart:
