Hello fellow deviants!

Call me Mary.
I'm currently 20 years old, and my current residence is Flagstaff, Arizona, where I am attending Northern Arizona University to get my hands on a lovely Bachelor of Science in Electronic Media and Film.
I like to keep to myself, but once I open up to those lucky people, I can be quite talkative, and outgoing. But overall I prefer keeping to myself over being around loads of people (even with my friends I like small close-knit groups).

Ever since I got back from interning at Disney World, I've been working on my sketches, focusing on characters from my favorite fandoms. I'm currently really into drawing anything Disney, especially the main mouse himself. Doing something so spontaneous as collecting character autographs, unlocked this hidden ability I had no idea was there, and I'm working on it as much as I can with what resources I own.

Inspiration can come from the smallest of things. It's up to us to take advantage of it when it arrives. That opportune moment, is different for everyone, but when it does come, don't let it get away.
Interests
Hey all. So this official first journal of 2014 is a favor for a friend. He's in a contest with Arctic 30 and he and I would both very much appreciate it if you voted for his work here so he can win the contest. It would also help him get more noticed in this kind of world which can be a tough gig, and it'll get him with a cool lookin' magazine. So I need you guys to cast your vote! :D
All you have to do is favorite or star if you have a Flickr. If not, share it with those who do!

Sorry it took me so long to reply. And you're welcome! I really like some of your Kingdom Hearts work, the Sora face portrait in particular. Got any tips on creating good depth with colored pencils? I'd like to move on from being a sketch artist but the thought of coloring them scares me since it's permanent.

thank you!
I had the same problem as you. The permanence of the medium is definitely nerve wracking.
But I mainly learned through trial and error, so don't be afraid to make mistakes and practice often. 
I think having layers of colors helps achieve depth in any medium, so have a different color pencil for your shadows and highlights and layer it on your base. other than that just play around with the colors and burnishing techniques.
and there are some ways to remove color pencil. Some times I use tape to peal away some layers, or these cheap pencil topper erasers that are rough enough to erase color pencil without ruining the paper. they don't remove it completely but it makes it light enough that I can put a different color in.

I'm no expert, so take my advice with a grain of salt. And thanks for the comment, I love questions like these!
