Hello, welcome to my page! smile flower

Dot Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! I'm a slightly misanthropic person, yet if my art is evidence of anything, it's that I'm not. so Shrug emoji

Dot Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! I like to busy myself, procrastinate, and take a 'respite from the fray' by making pictures (and video edits) of Hollywood stars. :star:

Dot Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! Read my journal entries to witness me shunning modern-day cyberculture and expressing the depth of my (many) obsessions, specifically pertaining to Hollywood stars. :star:

Dot Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! My art and my interests are perhaps my least favourite part of myself.

Dot Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! I can almost never make up my mind. About anything.

Dot Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! I know what you're probably thinking. Or maybe you're not. But why would a Brit have so much interest in Hollywood? Well, I'm American. I probably act like it, too. I'm not from the UK. I just put that there. Maybe it's gotten you to read this. Maybe it hasn't. But now you can think what you like about the legitimacy of the rest of my bio. bi heart


You can also find me on : wattpad and reddit.

Favourite Star I'm 5'0 and I weigh about 95lbs. I have an extremely child-like, high pitched voice that has previously been compared to that of an anime character. I also have dirty blonde hair I refuse to cut, and blue eyes. I have dark eyebrows that I shape myself because if I don't, they look like raccoon tails. I have even darker eyelashes that are so long, I can't comfortably wear sunglasses. I also have perfectly straight teeth following a long, unfortunate, character-crumbling 10+ years of being tormented with nicknames like 'bucktooth girl' and 'sharp tooth.' I'm way less friendly and carefree than I used to be, and to be frank, I'm quite angry that I have become a product of my environment like so, and that the people around me have managed to take it up with themselves to beat that wholehearted, compassionate, sanguine nature out of me and replace it with this sardonic, cynical, pessimistic version of myself- although I'm sure it has done my artistic side worlds of good.

so yeah. welcome!


Favourite Star My favourite humans include (but are not limited to) : River Phoenix, Tyler Baltierra, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Reynolds, Bill Skarsgård, Charlie Puth, Charlie Gillespie, James Charles, Penn Badgley, and Anton Zaslavski. They will never know me, but they will also never hurt me. Plus, according to horoscopes, I just so happen to be astrologically compatible with each of them. As if that actually means anything at all on my end.

Favourite Star My favourite colours are periwinkle, baby blue, pastel pink, and peach.


Favourite Star My favourite flowers are the mountain laurel and yoshino cherry blossoms.


Favourite Star I am predominantly Sicilian and English, but also probably like Scottish and Irish and German mixed with some dozen other things, like most people I know claim to be. ^-^


Favourite Star I speak both English and French. I am also currently studying German, Georgian, Romanian, and the three Scandinavian languages (Swedish, Norwegian & Danish) with emphasis on Norwegian. Because why not? xD


Favourite Star I'm also a cross country runner, musician, actress, filmographer, and a journalist for The Teen Magazine.


Favourite Star I'm an avid equestrian who predominantly competes in hunter, cross country and show jumping classes. My favourite horse breeds are the Appaloosa, Connemara, Morgan, Haflinger, Welara, and the German Riding Pony.

:bulletyellow: I'm a perfectionist who has a very all-or-nothing mindset, unfortunately. I take my art very seriously, to the extent where I won't post it at all unless it is either perfect in my mind, or I am absolutely sick of trying to make it look perfect. Of course, this standard is constantly changing. Besides, not every portrait is destined to be a masterpiece, and if there's really no saving it, sometimes I'd prefer to just post it and forget it's there. You can probably guess which pieces those are xD

:bulletyellow: My 'area of centripetal focus,' per se, is primarily in photo manipulation and graphic design. The portrayal of my art is, admittedly, pretty embarrassing. It also doesn't represent me very well, as I tend to have a more pessimistic and emotionally raw viewpoint on life than my art typically lets on. However, that doesn't mean it didn't take a lot of time and effort- or that I can't like bright colours and kawaii things. Unfortunately, I have gotten a lot of dismissive responses regarding myself and my art in the past, and I would like to eliminate that right off the bat if possible. I'd hate to come off as a narcissist in saying so, but I am just as much an artist as anyone else on this platform. We are all here with the intent of expressing ourselves in the ways we each individually know best. Do not attempt to prevent me from doing it my way, and I will not stand in the middle of yours.

:bulletyellow: I'm not a pretentious person. I'm not some 'cute, quirky girl' wannabe. I also don't waste time putting on the facade of someone who is exceptionally 'wounded, deep, dark,' or 'edgy', and therefore they're supposedly better than everyone else. I find these unnecessary attempts at enforcing an idea of public superiority, especially when most of us probably just hate ourselves, to be very obnoxious. I'll be kind to you if you're kind to me; there are no two ways to cut it.

:bulletyellow: I may look like a silly fan girl or 'stan', but I truly hate those words, especially when I am immediately dubbed beneath them. I am besotted with the concept of Hollywood as a whole, despite all its flaws - a true aficionado - but not necessarily with any single person in particular, so I have never 'stanned' anyone. Celebrities are people just like us and they deserve their privacy likewise; I know, respect, and do my best to enforce this. I just think my creative outlet is slightly different than yours, and that's okay. But like most people, I also have a low tolerance for denouncing assumptions regarding myself. Please do me the honour of separating me from yours.

:bulletyellow: If I suddenly go inactive on a whim, it means I probably died. (Seriously, guys, I'm not going anywhere.)


Cool, have a great day

So I happened to find myself cruising Quora again whilst surfing the web for questions (I tend to do that often, don't I?) when I found one that asked this: Who do you think is the better romantic interest for Spider-Man, Gwen Stacy or Mary Jane Watson? And why? First of all, I'd like to start by saying I find it so funny that all those celebrities who participate in those 'It's Actually Me' interviews have no idea what Quora is... I find myself on there quite often. It's a nice place to ask (or find pre-asked) questions and get answers relatively quickly from real people. Not that people anywhere else are necessarily 'fake'... Anyways, I was pretty satisfied with a lot of the answers they got. It seems a lot of the people who responded had read the comics, as opposed to going off of the material from the films. Because I think all of them, or at least most of them, pointed to Mary Jane. Now, if you're Team Gwen, I'm not going to tell you you're wrong. Not yet. I can understand why

Now, I'm not so sure DA is the right place for this. But, come on, there has got to be stranger journals on this site; a site where people don't typically hesitate to share things that come from their hearts. I found this question being asked on Quora not too long ago. Because my immediate reaction was to internally scream, 'yes!,' I found myself rapidly typing up a response, my anger-ridden emotions serving as the primary driving force behind my scrambling fingertips. So, for all those who may be able to relate (or those who would simply like another reason to give their own parents an appraising pat on the back for their success in parenting), have you ever lost respect for your parents as an immediate reaction to one thing they said or did? If so, you're certainly not alone. I know I have. Let's take a walk, shall we? It's one thing to be brought up never feeling particularly fond of your parents to begin with. Never exactly bearing that romanticized mother-daughter, father-son

How long have you been on DeviantArt? I've been a member of DeviantArt since February 2015. What does your username mean? I wish my username had some sort of special, unique, innate meaning, and perhaps if I'd created my account later, it would've. But for the most part, its orchestration was pretty random. xD However, when I created this account, I initially wanted to use it for Lion King/Warrior Cats fan art, prior to transforming my content over to the Hollywood fan art/celebrity graphic design portraits that I make today. So, I wanted to create a username that somewhat represented both those fandoms; 'sand' as in the desert or savanna, and 'star' as in the leaders' suffix in the warrior cats series. 'Sweet' served merely to prevent my username from becoming completely and automatically oriented with warrior cats (a leader can, theoretically, have the name Sandstar in the books), while also rolling off the tongue nicely. Describe yourself in three words. Pensive, wistful, anxious?
