I apologise to any of my watchers who have been wondering where I've gotten to (which is probably people from Avarde more than anything) - I've been extremely busy IRL with a lot of things, some of which I can't post about yet, but will post about in due time when things are more set in stone! Mostly though, my temporary job position from Winter '12 ended, so I'd been really struggling to find another job and not been able to find the time or motivation to draw. Luckily, I've found another job for now that is making me some pennies and getting me into the spirit of working nearly full-time. I've started to find my drawing mojo again, so expect to see some art soon, especially from the RP group I'm in once it gets active again.

Either way, I'm excited to get back into art and the deviantART community again, as I've really missed you all!

Also, if you have time, please check out Asterlie's icon commissions and raffle here:…

Thanks for reading, and hope to see you all around soon!
I got a job, guys! So I might be able to concentrate on art a bit more now. It's only a temporary Christmas job, but it's certainly getting me more money than sitting around on my butt all day. Plus, I've not been in paid employment since 2009... so hallelujah!

Also, my good friend minnoux is holding an adoptable giveaway raffle. Loli is a lovely, down-to-earth and talented artist whom I very much look up to, so I would really appreciate it if you guys took the time to check out her wonderful work. Her livestreams are super fun too. c: Here's the link to the raffle:

That's all for now. <3
Hello watchers~

Just a heads up that I may not be posting very much (even though my posting is already lacking ;O; ) as I've just arrived back in the UK after being in the USA for 3 months, and I'm currently very engaged in finding a job. So, wish me luck... and I'll see you all on the other side. <3
Hello all! Hope you are all well, and have been having a fantastic summer. Good luck to everyone going back to school/college. C:

My progress/to do list custom box was getting a bit overflowed, so I hope you don't mind me making a journal post to keep my 'to do' list in. XD It's pretty lengthy since I wrote down a lot of pictures required of my AnimeFanartChallenge participation, so... yeah.

Thanks for reading. <3

I'm super excited <3 GO GO GO!

EDIT: Thanks to :iconry-spirit: there's another raffle going on here:… hurry while you can~!

EDIT EDIT: And again LOL I'm failing at getting the codes given out on the site ;w; raffle here:
The rules:
1. For each of the 20 first people answering this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list!
2. If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on the first place.
The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! Woohoo!

...etc srsly tell people to fill this up

Please tell your friends... I don't have nearly enough watchers to fill this up. XD
To anyone it may concern... I'm finished with university and back to drawing. :) See my WIP on my profile for current updates on what I'm working on! Right now, it's Hikaru and Kaoru from Ouran High School Host Club, as part of an art trade with :iconnuttyjigs:

Moving back home next Saturday, so apologies if I'm still a little busy cleaning and packing up! Will update again soon. ^___^
I thought I would post a quick journal entry, just to make it known that I'm not a random dA creeper who's never going to submit anything. ^_^;

Basically, I'll be graduating from university in May. After this, I'm planning on focusing fully on finding a job (any job will do!) and getting back into art, as I've neglected it for the past 3 years.

I look forward to showing everyone my art. :) Thanks for the patience.

Best wishes!
