Update on Art and Life

Update on Art and Life

Hey everyone! I'm sorry for the lack of activity from me the last couple of months. I've been crazy busy in my life with buying and moving into my first house, work, family, friends, etc. I'm still making tons of art I just haven't been able to post them yet or it's commissioned work. So don't worry if you thought I left the site or quit making art- I've just been super busy. I'll be posting new art soon and I'll try my best to be more active here. Thank you all for your love and support! Also thanks for the Daily Diviantation on my Kelenken restoration! This is my first DD and I'm truly honored. <3

Support me on Patreon!!!!

Support me on Patreon!!!!

If you want to support me and get a lot of cool stuff in return become a Patreon on my page! https://www.patreon.com/RushelleKucala I decided to make one so I can get more funds to back into my art and allowing me to make more. I also want to give back to my supporters! Here's the tiers and their benefits: Morlock Seeder (Tier 1): -You will get my love and appreciation -Get access to some of my past Academy of Art University assignments that most people have never seen. Morlock Drone (Tier 2): -You will get to see a new anatomy studies on animals and dinosaurs once a month. These studies won't be found anywhere else (except some from my bo

Buy Shirts AND Support Feral Cats!

Buy Shirts AND Support Feral Cats!

So if you missed my announcement on my velociraptor illustration I'll repost it here.  So one of my friends started a site called Pixery that's blowing up in popularity. They make shirts out of your artwork and designs and they're great quality (I have three shirts and they look great and feel comfortable). The thing that makes it awesome is the artist gets a percentage of the sale and the rest goes to a verified cause of the artists choice. So every time you buy a shirt from my store you not only get an awesome shirt that is high quality, you get to give back and do some good! I chose Visalia Feral Cat Coalition, which is a group I've been v

Just Married!!!!

Just Married!!!!

It's official, I got married October 15th! The wedding was so beautiful and went perfectly. All our family and friends were there and we had such a good time. The honeymoon was fantastic too, JJ and I rented a beach house for the week and it was so romantic and fun, we just got back yesterday! So yeah, if you were wondering why I haven't been active this past week that's why. I'm back now and expect some new art soon! Hands down this was the best and happiest week of my life! I'm so lucky to marry such a handsome and amazing man. <3

Thank You Everyone!

Thank You Everyone!

I just wanted to thank everyone for the birthday wished, I truly appreciate it! I was surprised how many there were, I feel so loved, you guys are awesome! :heart: I had a great bday, I mostly just spent it with my parents and fiance, which was nice. I hope you all are having a terrific day! Oh yeah, I should be able to post a new drawing this coming week. I've been super busy, so sorry for the lack of art! I'll post something ASAP!

Anyone know a good book printing site?

Anyone know a good book printing site?

So i've been told numerous times that I should create a book with all my prehistoric animal anatomy studies, and I think it's a great idea. I'm thinking maybe 25+ animals, maybe some information on each one, and a skeletal, muscle, and restored study of each animal. Do any of you know a printing/binding/shipping site that works similar to sites like RedBubble or Society6? Where you design it, and when you make a sale they get it all made and shipped out and they get a percentage of what's made? I'm having no luck finding any site like that. There's a lot of book publishing sites, but a lot of them make you buy dozens of them at a time and are

Graduation

Graduation

Well, Saturday is my last day at Academy of Art University, I earned my BFA in illustration! I'm excited I made it, but sad at the same time, I'll miss my school, the great critiques, my instructors, and my friends. Luckily I'm friends with a lot of them through Facebook and Deviantart, but i'll still miss the classes. Anyway, expect more drawings in the next couple of days, I have about 6 that I have yet to upload. Now to go and get my Mara Jade cosplay ready for Star Wars: The Force Awakens tomorrow! I know she's not going to be in the movie, but she's one of my favorite characters, lol.

Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been SUPER busy with my last semester before graduation, I'm hoping to find time to soon to post my new artwork. Keep your eyes open for some new prehistoric animal art and fantasy art (including some dragons ;) ). This weekend has been pretty eventful for me, spent the weekend in LA with my boyfriend and friends, and on Saturday we spent the day in Disneyland (which was a blast). But the best thing of all is my boyfriend got down on one knee and proposed to me in front of Cinderella's castle. I had no idea he was going to do that! I said yes of course and have been floating since! It was one of the best da

Thanks for the Birthday Wishes!

Thanks for the Birthday Wishes!

I just wanted to say thank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday, I feel truly loved! I had a great bday, got a couple of new books, got to go out and eat, saw Mad Max: Fury Road (which I freaking loved, probably the best movie I've seen all year, seriously go see it!), and cuddled with my boyfriend while watching Game of Thrones. So it was a great day!

Shoulder Update

Shoulder Update

For those of you who haven't already heard, I'll be having surgery done on my shoulder next week. The pain has gotten worse and worse even though the break in my humerus is healed. So last week I had a MRI with contrast done and turns out I have a torn rotator cuff, tissue damage, and bone fragments. So I'll have to have surgery and get all that fixed. Luckily. it's all going to be done laparoscopically, so I'll be back on my feet within days. I'm actually excited that the doctors finally figured out why I'm in such extreme pain and that I'm going to get it fixed next week. These last four months have just been troublesome and extremely painf

Jan 24 2015 Update

Hey everyone! How are you all doing? I hope good! It's been a while since I made a journal entry. Things are going pretty good here, I start my next semester back at Academy of Art University this coming Monday so I'm excited. It shouldn't be as busy as last semester (I was sort of insane and stupid for taking those challenging and time consuming classes all at once, lol), so hopefully I'll still be active here while I'm doing school. I'm going to be taking Clothed Figure Drawing 3, Intro to Science Illustration (super excited and curious about this class), Illustration 3: Interactive and Vector Art (I'm a little scared since I never done vec
