Some Rambling + Life Update? (I am back!!)Hello everyone!
I'm not sure how many people still follow my account or even read journals anymore. I feel like dA has been absolutely crushed by other social media websites like Instagram. I feel like this is a shame, because they are not websites focused on Art. While that may be a good thing, because it makes you reach a bigger audience, I feel like 80% of said audience doesn't really get what I do and can't be considered an "artistic" community. Does this make sense?
It's now been 8 years since I created my DeviantArt account (August 2010) and, while this page holds many precious memories from when I was a little wimpy kid (I am now a wimpy adult hehe), I can't help it but feel like I'm walking in a desert around here. Most people who watch me (I recently hit 1500 watchers, so thank you!) seem to be unactive accounts that will never see my work again, and that makes me pretty sad. However, I love dA and I really want to stick around, you know?! It's very frustrating to see how many

Anime Con Review: Iberanime-OPO 2015Hello everyone! As some of you may know, I attended a convention this weekend, which I've been attending for 3 years now, here in Portugal called Iberanime-OPO. The con happens twice a year: once in Lisbon (IA-LX) in April/May and once in Porto (IA-OPO) in October. As usual, I shared a booth with my cinnamon-roll buddies, KirameKirai , O-hikaku and HllR0 (who I met for the first time irl!!!)
So, some watchers here and followers on twitter suggested I'd make a journal explaining how the con went and what I did there, so that's what I'm doing now.
This was part of the merchandise I made. Some prints, stickers, bookmarks and notebooks (couldn't make keychains this year).
And this was our booth!!
I will be very honest and possibly a little bit rude, but to be honest I feel like this IA was the worst one I've ever attended in my life. The organization was awful (as usual), the Artists' Alley was terrib
Core membership pricesSeriously, what the heck happened to the prices for premium/core membership??
It's totally understandable that DeviantArt needs the money received from buyers to keep going and that the community has grown brutally after 15 years of existence, however, I don't think it's understandable how much the prices for core membership have risen. When I first joined this website (august 2010 - 5 years ago), the prices were much more reasonable and I managed to buy around 50 months or so of premium membership, only with point commissions (I charged about 200-500 points for each one, which is around 2-5€ a drawing... yup), while using the beautiful sales (like those buy-1-year-get-2 promotions) that I haven't seen in ages now. What I mean is, I don't ever remember having to pay 4000 points for a premium membership before. I don't even think I've ever had that many points, and I managed to buy over 2+ years of PM.
Since dA is so proud of how much being a "core deviant" means,
I'm back!Hello everyone! It's been such a long time since I last used a computer!!! I feel like a really really old lady writing this journal entry hahahaha... so sad...
Oh well, firstly, I'd like to say welcome to my newest watchers! I'm sorry you had to watch a person who hasn't been active for so long, but either way thanks for the watch and I hope you guys enjoy my work from now on!
So the reason why I haven't come here is simple: my laptop died some months ago, I even lost count. I believe it hasn't turned on since October or so, so I sent it to repairing, and only got it back today. So, in summary, I haven't used my tablet in so long that I lost the hang of digital art LOL I'm a bit screwed but please stay with me!!! I haven't drawn in so long... I've been quite busy with school (they reduced our schedule but doubled the work we have to do x___x) but I intend on keeping up with my deviantart and continuing drawing and posting stuff here!! That much I can promise!
To conclude, thank
Thank you for the birthday wishes! +life updatesHey guys! It's been a while since I wrote anything aaaahhhh;; it feels good to update stuff~~ Thank you for all the watches and favourites I've been getting recently and welcome, new watchers!!
First of all, thank you so much for all the birthday wishes everyone so kindly wrote for me! My day was pretty fun (I started taking japanese classes - so much hiragana and katakana to memorise!!!) but also pretty damn busy!
I've been having so much stuff happening lately that it took me a whole week to finally turn on my computer and relax a little;; My tests start next week and hopefully I'll come back to my usual routine, which means paying more attention to dA and drawing more!!! I'm also sick right now, which hasn't been helping at all!! Stupid weather, no one can tell if it's summer or winter or whatever this is... Having this seasonable flu just sucks.
Artblock has also been taking part in my life, which is terrible... Time is already little so this crap is not making me the l

Check this out!Hello everyone!! There is this friend of mine http://haruhihanamoto.deviantart.com/ who's always dreamed of one day becoming an utaite but she'd always been too scared to even try to record something... And today was the day she finally got the guts to record something, get it mixed and post it!! Let me just say her cover was so amazing that I just HAD to post a journal about it! Please check it out! She sings amazingly and her voice is adorable~!
The song is called Setagaya Night Safari by MikitoP featuring Hatsune Miku. It's not my favourite song but I love this cover ;w; just wanted to say that! CONGRATULATIONS HARURUNNNNN!!! I'M SURE YOU'LL BECOME A GREAT UTAITE AND LET ME JUST SAY I'M SUPER PROUD OF YOU HNNNGGGG <333
I'M SORRY YOU DESERVED SO MUCH BET
Happy New Year + new skin~Hello everyone! How was your Christmas? I got some really nice clothes and candy teehee~~ and my Christmas eve was pretty calm too, watching films and stuff.
So, this year passed quite quickly didn't it? Got to draw a lot, but not as much as I wanted at the same time... Got to improve some stuff but a lot of work is needed in order to improve more and more this following year! Gonna practise colouring, anatomy and composition in general... Well, pretty much everything hahaha;; OTL|||
About this new journal skin, I was just tired of my old one because it was so bad compared to how I draw nowadays lol (not like it looks that much better now because I simply can't work with this HTML stuff hahahaha;; )
I hope you like it anyway ;w;
Cheers to everyone and a happy new year!

contest - design our spooky sonas! CLOSEDthank you to everyone who entered!
this contest will be closing 12 am est!
please give us a day or so to judge!
since just before October we've been debating on how to design our spooky sonas for social media and such and have been running into a wall qvq so we thought it might be fun to host a contest and see how other's might do! (of course this will go with prizes and such so you don't feel like we're just trying to get a bunch of free art qvqqq we're just honestly stuck for designs;;;)
so!! think of this as a design contest rather than an art contest!
art skill level isn't the biggest factor here, it's the design! c:
