Might start updating art on here again!
It's a nice place to just keep track of my art and growth.
Hey guys!
I always thought I'd come back to dA during breaks and school but it seems like I cant keep up with updating on here as easily as I can on my tumblr. I'm abadoning this account but not deactivating it mainly because there are some stuff for PR that I think would get deleted if I deacctivated. So I'll leave that for future members. It was a nice run but I guess it's time for me to move on.

If you still are interested in seeing anything I make it'll all be up on my art tumblr: jarquinart.tumblr.com/
And for just casual rebloggin: lunaoverthecow.tumblr.com/

Thank you to everyone that made this experience great and helped me grow. 
Best of luck to everyone!
<3
Hello!

Sorry for the inactivity! School has taken up most of not all of my time since September.

I'm in my second year of animation which is when we have to submit a big progress portfolio to see if we can move up to junior year. In junior year we have to make a short film so the teachers want to see if we have the skills to take on any position and how well we are doing too.
I can't promise any activity for a while because even though summer break is about 3 weeks away from us I want to work on personal stuff for myself. It'd be nice to stick to one idea and actually finish it so that's the goal this summer.

I hope everyone is doing well!

-Your neighborhood moon

"Ears. The humans stare at them a lot especially when they arent used to seeing sub-humans"
"Ohhh~ It can go from my hair to my ears. I guess my hair since that's what people see first! But that's cause I  dyed it brown when I was working a job and the blonde started to grow out. But I like it like this!"

3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?
"Oh...hmm...I have a few that have faded cause they werent that deep. They're short too. Nothing to really point out though. And..I rather not tell."

4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?

So our family was gonna move from Cinnabar, and I sneaked out and caught Axel. It was hell to persuade her to let me keep him but when she told dad to take me out to get a pokeball necklace...I was just really happy."
"Hehe when I was successful in outsmarting my brothers. Lil suckers didnt know what hit them"

Sketches

Hiya!
So my computer decided to reject any connections for internet and proclaimed me on offline statues for a while. I can still get around on the home computers, despite the loud clicking noises the keyboard keys make, but not as much as on my laptop.
Hmm, this week I have to stay overnight at my college for registration and everything but that's a 2 hour drive so I'll have free time. In order to keep myself busy to ward away carsickness I thought of drawing. But drawing my OC's can get boring sometimes, so I'd like to sketch your OC's :)
I'll take a few. And if you could post what they like to do that would be great :D

I dont really like posting personal journals, or those journals that say hiatus cause I think they're kinda silly, but that's just me. So instead of saying hiatus and leaving for a while, I WILL say, I wont be as active in the upcoming months.
Oh but why? ;A;
Weeeeeeeeell, this is my last year in high school, and though I have been struck with senioritis (an immense stroke of laziness) I do still have responsibilities to fulfill. Since it's my last year in not only school, but the academic program I was in, I have a series of tests that I have to prepare for. Anyone associated with IB and AP would know what Im talking about.
Gotta say though, IB Econ is the hardest and most boring class I've ever taken. I appreciate the teacher for trying to make it fun.
Other than testing, I have extracirculars that I have to take care of. This is my last year of debate and qualifiers are coming up, so gotta prep for those as well as make some memorable events for the team. Since Im spirit captain ; u; There's also a play I tried out for A musical no less
And more, but that's enough for anyone reading this to get the idea. Busy busy busy. So though Im not claiming hiatus, I AM going to say that not as much art should be expected from me. Or interaction since I have to fix some stuff with my email and skype. >:I

Ten things about myself
- I like to dance to my music when no one is looking. Or sing it badly.
-Boys that have been interested in me, know that they will always come fourth because of my strong bond with my dad, grandpa, and dog.
- There's a myth that I'm smart circulating around my senior class, but who knows why they are making stuff up.
-I'm a senior citizen
- I suck at calculus. I understand the concepts most of the time but blank out at the tests because they are just horrendous.
-I don't like to trust people very easily. I do, but I don't like that I have this necessity to find the good and truth about everyone.
- I'm a pessimist. I rather have the worst expectation than be disappointed
-I am heavily sarcastic. 90% of what comes out of my mouth is probably sarcastic. A talent wasted on my mother who is immune to sarcasm

Action is being taken

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 9, 2013, 4:59 PM


Many of you know that last year there was the tragic shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut. Gun control seemed like the best option at the time. Well now, action IS being taken by the President. I found this nifty little article when I decided to go check out the news for some random reason.
www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-ca…
Congress and the President are planning on taking action, since gun violence has dramatically increased over the last 30 years, but we'll have to wait a bit more to see what will be put into place.
Stay tuned

Bilbo got me

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 4, 2013, 9:18 PM


Saw the Hobbit and it was nerdtastic
I have to admit the begining was a bit slow and it did induce some yawns, but then it got good towards the middle and the end made me want more.
Also trying out a journal skin for someone :I
And it's beautiful ;v;

As the title says, Happy New Year to everyone!
Hopefully this year is better than the last !
Resolutions for this year:
-Be happy
-Make time to practice more
-Pass calculus
-Pay attention
(Artistically)
-Draw more backgrounds
-Play with perspective
-Play with colors
-Multi-character pieces

Let's see if any of those are resolved this year : D
Do you have any resolutions?

Also, kiriban set at 16,666. It's pretty close.
You know how some people are scrap rats? And they just keep every little piece of paper that's given to them? Well I'm like that. I swear I still have my freshmen Biology notes somewhere. Welle, because of that, I have tons and tons of paper and notebooks around my room. My mom keeps telling me to clean my room, and it's usually implying paper mountain but Im usually too lazy to throw out what I need or dont.

Weeeeeeell, I was shuffling through some papers and found a bunch of my old stories the other day. There are a bunch of them that I remember the storyline I had planned perfectly. And urg. I just fell in love with some characters all over because of their storylines. I've never completed any of them because a new idea would pop up and I would just go to draw that, but I kinda really wanna finish them. Whether it be some of my sketch 'manga' pages, or the full blown stories that I had written.

I was kinda thinking of revising them and refining them too. I think I'll do his one shot first since I really liked that one. It was through a boy's perspective and about how you shouldnt believe everything you hear. Urg. Sometimes I wish I could just stop time, keep my motivation, and do everything I wanted to.

I dunno what the point of this journal was. I was just really happy after finding some doodles from 2 years ago and wanted to write. I can't stop grinnign at them even though the anatomy is horrible and the eyes bug the hell out of me. But I cant thinking about how much fun it'd be to work on them again. It's like a project to see how much Ive improved over the past couple of years and it makes me giddy. YES I SAID GIDDY.

Um..so sorry for future spam? Who knows, I might just go to another site nad post it there so I dont spam people more than I already do ; u ;smackjeeves or something
Gonna draw for a bit until I have to go. Stop by if you have nothing to do~
Will not be here for the weekend due to fun senior college stuff. :I I'll be in San Fransisco checking out a college so not much activity from me. Woo~
If you need to get in contact or anything, just ask.
Just thought I'd give this a go.

Chibis: Ruby and Sapphire by Lunaoverthecow Happy Birthday Thor! by Lunaoverthecow

Im not unreasonable. If you're missing a few pts, we can work something out ; u ;
Anything that I didnt mention varies really.
