700 watchers!

Mon Nov 5, 2018, 3:59 AM
Hi all! thank you all so much I've reached 700 watchers on my DeviantArt! it was hard as I try my hardest to get more watchers until I reach 1,000 someday which will take a while I suppose but it gives me something to do. I hope you guys keep supporting my work as I'm not planning to leave DeviantArt anytime soon as I intend to keep this wonderful social site as it has helped me so much since I discovered it. Again thank you all so much!

I know it's been a while

Sat Oct 6, 2018, 7:28 AM
Hello everyone I just wanna say sorry I haven't submitted a journal entry for ages but I've been too busy what with Sealion & Friends, going out with my family & doing research on how to be a better artist & animator so journal entries were my least priority. I've been to Brownsea Island where you see red squirrels & I must say they were much smaller than the grey squirrels I normally see here where I live also I've been animating my Sealion & friends episodes & creating random cartoons for my skills development so it's been very hecktic (if that's how you spell it). I've been very involved in my Sealion & friends series as well so it's a very good thing to occupy me but because I've got other things on my mind & things that interest me change over time it's hard to finish the little jobs that I had planned to do but it's all great fun nonetheless so I'm not at all upset. Thank you also guys for the recent watchers that I've gained since I joined the group Terrible-Lizards because I think that is the best group I've been a part of as a co-founder.

300 follows on my Facebook page!

Tue Jul 17, 2018, 10:27 AM
Hello everyone I just want to say how greatful I am that I now got 300 followers on my Facebook page it's been since 28th April 2017 since I created it & I must say it's really come along so thanks very much to the people who liked my page & helped me get this far. ^^ I also managed to get 650 watchers on my DeviantArt which has been coming along since 2012 though I probably should of put more effort into getting more watchers by uploading & commenting on people's artwork. Oh well.. Anyway I hope you guys checked out my Youtube for more Sealion & Friends episodes as I'm making more for you guys & am creating new amazing effects to show how gifted I am. Well that's all for now, I'll talk later.

So I've been on Deviantart since 2012, that's six years!  & I've finally uploaded my 1,000th Deviation to it! Woah, DeviantArt must be very good for me to stay with it for as long as I did & I'm pleased with myself & also gaining my 622 watchers was great too but when I reach my 1,000th subscribers on my Youtube channel I'll be focusing on my Twitter, Instagram, Facebook page & DeviantArt for my 1,000 watchers, likes & followers on them before I'm satisfied with my work though that might take a while, still I'm very driven & will carry on for as long as I can so you guys can see more of my work. ^^ Anyway talk later.

Setting up our shed for my art space

Mon May 7, 2018, 12:18 AM
Gallery|Commission Me|Website

So my parents decided after a successful wood carving session in April with my dad to help that we should set up the family shed so that I can do my whittling & even my artwork because mum said doing it in my room would mean they’d be paint on the floor as I use acrylics for it mostly & the garage wouldn’t be convenient either because my dad is doing it up soon so the shed is the best place. Now for my new work space in the shed we’ll be still working on hanging up the hooks for my aprons & fixing the work bench to the floor which my dad will do soon & now recently I’ve set my art tools up in there so my canvases are in the shed & my mum’s tilt up desk is on the portable table in there too. The reason we’re fixing the work bench to the floor was because I had a bad back after doing some whittling today & had to have a rest in bed afterwards which helped. Now because so many nice things are happening with me recently I’m really excited & happy especially with the family shed we’re working on for me & I can’t wait to see the final result once it’s done! It should be brilliant once it’s all finished. Bye for now.

Wood carving session successful!

Sun Apr 22, 2018, 9:07 AM
Gallery|Commission Me|Website

I've been to a wood carving session yesterday & I must say it was very enjoyable because even though I didn't make a 3D horse model like I planned I managed to carve a wooden portrait of one & it does look good & the tutor there, Glin, was very nice & helpful as he helped me to improve my mistakes. Now I did cut myself a couple of times but I still enjoyed myself & besides there ain't no wood carver or whittler that doesn't cut themselves so that makes me feel better. My dad worked on a wooden horse portrait too but mine was better as it was more artistic as I'm an artist & my mum could tell the difference when we showed her. I'm hoping at some point we can attend the wood carving session once we have enough money again which probably will have to wait which is dissapointing. Still I'm glad I attended that lesson & plus I got to bring back my wooden portrait & I'm going to keep it for as long as I can. Anyway I'm doing my animations again & my Sealion & Friends are back on track with me filming more episodes for my Youtube channel so keep an eye out for them as they'll definately be more to come! ^^

I'm decorating my Deviantart page

So I've been really busy with my animations & social medias I use & I've recently been into Instagram again because I used it before but didn't get the hang of it like I did before until now & I also found out that it's important for artists & animators like me to have Instagram because Instagram is revolved around pictures which is good for people like me. I also have a Pinterest account that I use to collect pictures & show my own along with my animations on Youtube so it's all been good looking at these sites that'll help me with my work to show to the world & everything. BTW this is the first time I've used a proper journal for my Deviantart page & I'm happy that it's working. Well I must get back to my work & I'll be seeing you folks later! ^^

I'm open for commissions but I'm not having much luck with getting customers for some reason. :( Is it because I'm not putting as much effort into the artwork for other people? or is it something else? Please tell me what it could be as I'd like to improve that.

So when me & dad went to Leiscester Museum for the day in the car we had a very important conversation about what i should really focus on because before I wanted to concertrate on getting myself out there by promoting myself rather than getting better so dad explained to me some very good advice by saying if I focus on getting better 80% of the time & promoting myself 20% of the time that would mean people will be more drawn to my work as I’m finding ways to improve my skills in art & animation rather than trying to get lots of people to just see my work & not be interested so I’m only going to see & update my websites once a day & the rest of the time I’ll be painting or animating. Anyway I saw the charnia (ancient life form from the Precambrian) at that museum that mum wanted me to photograph for her & I’ll put it on my normal profile with my other pictures soon too. I haven’t really been filming recently with my Sealion & Friends series or doing traditional art at because I’m more into painting on Photoshop at the moment but I think it’d be interesting to do stop motion puppets like Ray Harryhausen though I’d have to look more into it to decide if I’ll definately do it.

Ok I've deleted by mistake the comment telling me who wanted me to paint the Mask with Jim Carrey as part of an art trade & I can't remember who it was. Could that person come forward and let me know who it was?

Hello fans! now here's the deal I'm thinking of getting people together to possibly draw, model or paint fan art of my characters that I've created (Sealion & Friends or Foxy & Bucky) to get to socialize with everyone so I can feature those artworks to my Facebook page & I'll feature them to my album called "fan art" on there. If you guys don't have Facebook I'll need you to send me the link to the fan art & I'll upload it to my Facebook page but if you do happen to have Facebook you can upload the artwork to my page here: 79Louise's Art If any of you guys are interested please let me know soon as you can. Thanks for your support. ^^
Here's the characters I have in mind:

So early this morning I noticed my cat Eevee was sick in the night & I had to clean it up before anything else which made me worried as she is 17 years old. Next Terry our builder came to fit the work surfaces in our new kitchen which look good I must admit & I can’t wait till we actually get to start using the hob & everything & though I had to miss out on pizza last week I’ll be able to have it tomorrow as I’ve made pizza dough before that was put in our freezer that I can defrost so that makes up for it. Terry won’t be able to do the kitchen Sunday or Christmas day which means he’ll probably finish doing it by the end of next week but we’ll still have Christmas dinner & I’ll have my turkey that my mum kindly got for me to have as I’ve been begging her for it. We’re all looking forward to Christmas on Monday when we have Christmas dinner for lunch & have a fun time & everything. Christmas really is the best time of the year as I got a new computer for watching films on for Christmas because my old one was too old to do anything on... My cat was sick again this evening when I fed her so that makes me wonder if she’s got worms again or if she’s dying so we’ll be taking her to the groomers to see if they can do anything. What a hectic day!

So what’s happened is I had to move my animation set props & characters for my Sealion & Friends in our shed until I get back from grandmas’s on 16th December so that when we have the new kitchen done they’ll be out of the way. This isn’t very convenient for me as I plan to remake some animations I deleted in the past that I shouldn’t of done but I’ll definately do my animations once the bathroom & kitchen are done. Also what happened is there was an animation I created called Penguin Bowling that I couldn’t upload to Premiere Pro and edit as it didn’t upload properly, luckly there was a very kind person on DeviantArt & Newgrounds that helped me by using his software for adding sound & with that & I managed to download his version with the sound & add more to it so now I’ve scheduled that animation in the next two weeks on Youtube & this Facebook page. I was so happy when he fixed it for me that I thanked him & told him how grateful I was for his help. I definately won’t be deleting anymore animations anytime soon!

So now I realised that Newgrounds wasn’t the right social network for me as it’s pretty much dead & the only reason it’s still alive is because of it’s supporters so I deleted my account on it. Funny I would never have imagined this day would come as I got on really well with that site until recently and how I wasn’t doing so well with my fans on it. Anyway someone got annoyed with me doing this and told me I’ve left my fans in the dust but most people never even heard of Newgrounds & I think I was too late to set an account on it as it’s glory days are over & it’s not as good as it used to be... So now I’ve on Instagram instead as it’s much better to get fans on there then Newgrounds & it’s approriate for artists like me. Also to make things better I’ve now got a core membership with my DevianArt which means you get a lot more previlages like scheduling your artwork & adding more widgets for your page which is really important for me. So I’m a lot happier now & I hope I’ll get more fans on my social networks as time goes by! Bye for now.

So today me and my mum went on a trip to the Victoria Albert Museum and took photos of the things there like the sculptures, artwork, jewelery & costumes. We saw naked people sculptures, Mary Antoinette’s dress, crowns with jewels and creatures with a silver coating. After that we tried to find somewhere to eat that wasn’t too expensive because the sandwiches in their café were £7.30! We went to the St Pancreas station to explore then bought a sandwich, crisps and cookies in M&S and spent an hour waiting in the station until our train arrived. When we got on our train we had hot chocolate & arrived at 4:00pm in our home town then got a taxi back to our house. I must say that museum wasn’t my favorite place to visit because I prefer to visit natural history museums or zoos for my reference though I’m glad we went there as it was an experience but I won’t go there again if I can help it.

So a few months ago someone offered me to do a commission for them for a Oceanhorn Monster of Uncharted Seas project and because I haven't kept the comment that tells me the name of that person who offered me the job I need he/she to comment on this journal and let themselves be known to me as I need to know who it was as I can't remember their name. So please if you're that person let me know if you'd like me to start working on the commission. ^^
