My sister and I have been busy making jewelry since December, I'll be uploading all of that today, just as a heads up. I won't put everything up, just what we consider the best. Pieces I put up were either made by me entirely or a collaboration between my twin sister Nadia :iconfieryfae:

Small Update

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 3, 2010, 10:19 PM


Just a little update. Added some new art. I've also revamped my entire gallery, though it might not be obvious at first. I've changed some things around in the main page here, but the biggest changes are in the actual gallery section. I created new categories that better described my work and placed each piece appropriately. I've also removed from the "featured" section a lot of things that while they were ok, overall they were not my best work and it was starting to feel like having them in the main gallery was just cluttering up the space and bringing down my work quality. They're still up and online in whichever category they fit best, they just aren't in the main featured section.

Not all of the work that I left in featured is my best. I feel it's important to show your progress as an artist over time, I find that people like looking at that (I do too when I visit other galleries) but I didn't want to leave things that were really just scrap worthy in there.

I realize I said a while back that I would reply to comments and such later... and I fully intend to! Though I don't really know if anyone cares by now. xP  Larger update to come later, maybe.

((Damn I can't get that song out of my head and I'm not even a huge fan D: D: D: ))

Missing

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 21, 2009, 9:58 AM


I've been thinking... sometimes I feel like I am missing something in my art, and I can't quite put my finger on what. I always, always have this thought running through my head, and I've talked about it before, that there's something that's out there that I don't have. I look at other people's work and how successful they seem to be in their chosen career and I can't figure out what it is I'm lacking that would give me that oomph, that push, that magic touch or whatever to, dare I say it, make me successful too. Art isn't just a hobby for me, it hasn't been that way since high school, and it pains me to say that I've been an "artist" for over 10 years yet I have nothing to show for it. Feels that way at least.

What am I doing wrong?

Sometimes it feels like I'm stuck in a black pit of a prison creating art that will never see the light of day and will never be appreciated by others. I know I'm not the most active person on here and maybe that's biting me in the butt; but I'm trying to leave comments or at least +fav works I really like, especially if they have very few comments or +favs. I'm also trying to reply back to comments and +favs I get myself, I've had the habit of letting them pile up and by the time I am able to reply too much time has passed and I feel silly replying to a 3 month old comment, if not older... so with that said, I promise to try and reply back to the comments and such I get. They mean a ton to me and I read them all. People have no idea how much it means to me. I still think I'm not that great of an artist so when someone comes and actually likes something I did, it really amazes me. Maybe it's an artist thing, but my self-esteem hits the floor more often than I would like, and little things like comments or +favs let you know that even though you're struggling, your art IS being seen, and it IS appreciated. Maybe artists that believe their art is for themselves and no one else won't agree with me, but I'm of the sort that believes art was made to be viewed and appreciated by many, not kept hidden away somewhere where no one knows it even exists. People have argued with me about this before, but I consider myself a "commercial artist" where even though I do make pieces for myself my real aim is to create things that others will enjoy, admire, appreciated, love and perhaps want to buy ^^; It's really hard to do that however when no one knows you exist and you feel like all your efforts are going to waste because it seems like no one even sees them much less cares or appreciates them.

*sigh* I know I can't be the only person that feels this way. If you like someone's work, please let them know!

Similar to that train of thought, if anyone knows of any suggestions for getting yourself "out there", I'd love to hear them! I don't mean more pageviews, just in case you were wondering. I'm more interested in having people know your work and that you are available if they need someone, etc.

Pick up the pieces and move on. Bought a new computer, am now flat broke. Still looking for a steady job, no luck so far. Hire me? ^_^
Slowly getting back into the rhythm of things. Will be able to work on commissions soon too.

Been working on a zazzle store for a few weeks now. Not quite as ready as I'd like it to be, still have a few designs left to salvage, but it's about ready, so sharing the link now. ^_^



Currently I have some designs you are familiar with, finally being shown the way I had first intended them to be printed.


And some newer designs based on my personal artwork that I never imagined would actually look good on shirts!


And of course some of my designs for babies and toddlers/kids


Please visit and check it out! I would appreciate any feedback anyone has, thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc. Thanks!

Now to work on the etsy store ^^;

Conundrum

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 23, 2009, 2:57 PM
  • Listening to: Hail to the Freaks: Beatsteak
  • Eating: Yogurt
  • Drinking: Diet Lemon Tea


If that is even the right word for it... I'm in a bit of a pickle to say the least. =/ Basically my main computer, a somewhat old, some might call it "vintage" (the guy at the shop did) Mac 15" Powerbook G4 has, for lack of a better term, died on me. There were signs it was coming to an end from about two weeks previous and in that time I had managed to move some files from that computer to this one, however I still had art to finish and the Mac seemed fine so I went back to work after a few days and put moving files on the backburner in the mean time. Of course, as luck would have it, while I was working ON art, the Mac freezed up and crashed and upon restarting took around 45 minutes just to boot up. I decided to forget the artwork and instead try to move some more files, but of course while in the process of burning files to a DVD disc, the machine up and died completely. Refuses to restart, just stays in an eternal white/gray screen of death, with no sign of the Apple logo in sight, much less log in options. Since it had taken so long to restart the previous time, I decided to leave it for a while and see if it would eventually boot up, but that was not to be, as after several hours it remained in the same screen with nothing happening. Tried booting up from safe mode, but no go there as well. So I took it, after much headache and trouble finding the shop, to the local Apple service shop where I was informed my machine was "vintage" and they no longer made parts nor supported it, but they would still attempt to fix it regardless; if it could not be fixed, they would save the HD (if it was savable) and for a small fee give that to me as an external HD. They said they would call me back in a few days with more news. It's been almost a week and still no response, will probably call tomorrow but at this rate I'm not very hopeful.

My problem now is this, IF they can't fix it and I just get the HD... I can't access it. My only other computer (the one I'm typing in now) is a Sony Vaio PC and the Mac HD will be formatted for Macs, not PCs. I was able to save some of my artwork but a lot of my other files are still stuck on that HD, files I desperately need to finish commissions, and more importantly, files such as my resume and portfolio, which I now can't access. Freelancing is not really working out very well, and my t-shirt design company is off to an incredibly slow start. Fact is I need a more stable job, but as it is now I can't even do that without my files, I have no way to send in a resume or show my portfolio =( I'm at a loss as to what to do. I'm not even sure I can pay for the costs of fixing my Mac if it is fixable, much less pay for a new one.

Part of me wants to open up commissions and ask people to help me but the truth is that I'm not sure how I'd work on any artwork, seeing as how all my programs, materials and reference files are on the Mac and I don't really have any of that on this computer. The most I can do is traditional media with minor digital touch ups but no full on digital work, nor vectors nor web design nor any other kind of graphic work that would require a computer. I don't know what to do. The economy sucks for everyone and jobs are incredibly hard to come by, and the ones I do find I can't even apply for right now as the majority of them ask to see a portfolio, not to mention they ALL require a resume. I would use DA to show my portfolio except it would be sorely incomplete as a lot of the work I've done that I show potential employers is not uploaded here.

I hate feeling like this, and I'm sorry since it's probably coming off as a whiny, ranting, selfish child. That's not my intention but I can't help feeling incredibly guilty despite it. I'm sorry, I just don't know what to do anymore =(

EDIT: So I tried seeing what I had in the files I did manage to save, and I'm met with the horror at finding that a lot did not copy over properly and are nothing but gibberish symbols or full of unfixable errors. This is a nightmare.

Just finished one project/thing/whatever. Have a lot left to do. A couple of commissions, and some other projects that are due June 10th so I'm not even sure if I'll be able to finish one, let alone the rest I signed up for D:

Whatever, we'll see. In any case it'd mean I'd have more art to upload.

lolol nothing to report.

People's stupidity amuses me sometimes. No offense to anyone, but it really does ^^;

In other news:

I'm now a Site Moderator for Gaia Online.

I have done very little art, I've worked on a few sketches and tried doing some painting but I was not happy with how it was coming out so I scrapped it. I may upload what I had so far into scraps, it's really horrible though.

I've decided to start watermarking my artwork, so from now on they'll most likely have a little "tiranaki.deviantart.com" thing on them. Ironically, I watermarked the artwork I uploaded to Gaia's Art Arena and people thought I had stolen it xD... thus my stupid comment above <.<; no offense, but that kind of thing really irks me. My artwork isn't all that but come on, it's mine *clings to it*

  • Drinking: Diet Soda



Update July 7, 2008:

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!!!!!! to everyone that faved/commented/watched me, I am honestly quiet a bit shocked XD but grateful. :heart:

***********************************

Haven't updated in a while... almost a year.

o.O Holy frick :XD: As I'm going to update this after uploading artwork I see like 7 Favs <.< THANK YOU! :heart: <3 <3 <3

Anyways, the update. Since the last entry I DID have a job as a graphic artist for a company that shall remain nameless. That job started out well, but the pay was incredibly low and my responsibilities were incredibly high and as time went on I continued to get sick from stress and from bad environment that triggered my asthma.... so after only 6 months I had to quit due to health reasons. I mean, when my neumologist is saying he recommends I quit... yeah.

Anyways, the plan now is to take some "start your own business" courses and... start my own business XD. Not just as an illustrator, mind, but as a graphic artist. Freelance only goes so far. I have a nice team of graphic artists and illustrators already, so the only thing stopping me is.... that I have no idea what to do. Thus, the courses.

In terms of artwork, I haven't done anything all year except for what I uploaded just now. I was challenged by a friend to create at least 1 painting per month instead of like... 1 sketch every 3 months (which is my current record) so that should be interesting and provide a good challenge. If anyone wants to hit me with ideas as to themes/subjects/what I should draw, that'd be appreciated cause I am lacking creativity in that area.  There used to be a list thing I saw some artists use, that had like different emotions or themes... but I have no idea what it was called <.< if anyone knows what I'm talking about, hit me with it, please.

Eh well guess commissions flopped, no one's interested in my art though the Gaia shop seems to get orders... I can't live off Gaia Gold.

Thinking about maybe going back to school, don't know though. Don't really have the money for it either...

Um, nothing new. I almost died last week and spent some time in the ER and am now in a serious 6 month treatment thing. I've had chronic asthma since I was a baby, I'm a high risk patient and have been for years, in case anyone is wondering.

I had an art auction on gaia that went more or less ok but only my friends bid so they won the art. I've been trying to stay in practice by drawing freebies and random crappy things.

I've been playing MapleStory a lot, or trying to. My PC doesn't handle it well so I have to borrow my mother's laptop to play. My regular personal computer is a Mac and Maple doesn't work on those.

I don't include everything I draw, a lot of it is doddles that I post on gaia but aren't really worth uploading here.

So job search isn't going that well...

I started thinking I could take real life commissions, but I don't know if anyone would be interested, NOR what to offer, or at what prices.

I have a price list for Gaia avatar art, but I don't know if I should change it. Anyways, I need help, out of the work here in my gallery, which do you guys think I should offer for commissions, and what price would you pay for it? What price would you consider a good deal for you as a customer, and me as the person doing all the work?

I was stupid.

I didn't get to see what it was like. I took the orientation and by the end of the day I was having nervous breakdowns, shaking on the floor, crying and convulsing so badly I had to be held so I wouldn't hurt myself and then carried to the hotel because I could barely walk. I took one class and begged my parents to take me home.

I did a lot of things wrong, I didn't think through on everything, and now I have to pay the consequences. I regret my decision, and know I made the wrong choice, and now I am dreading having to find work and go through all that shit because I was too much of a wuss to suck up my circumstances and just deal like any other responsible adult would. My mind is so twisted that all I kept thinking was "I want to go home" even though I knew I would have to find work, but for some reason the little fact that I hate working seemed to escape my memory at that time, and all I wanted was to go home. I'm so fucking stupid sometimes.

Oh yeah, won 3rd place in the Gaia Art contest. Believe it or not that's the first art contest I've ever won. I've never even made honorable mention for other things. So yeah, I was hoping for at least second place, but third place is better than no place. I haven't seen the other entries yet because they had to take down the winner's list before I was able to see it. I only known I won third place because of the PMs and what my friends told me.
