My Bio
.:. NOTICE .:.
--- When I sign my art, I usually sign Saphy Marie with a swirl around it. For art theft purposes, when you see Saphy Marie, I'm pretty sure it's going to be my work ---

Hi, I'm a teen from the Mid-South area of the USA and I love drawing. I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil and I probably should be better than I am now, but I'm working on it.

I do pencil sketches, pastels, paintings, and digital work primarily. Sometimes I'll do something different, but it normally doesn't leave that list.

I make 3D designs ( not very good, I normally won't show them off), draw realistically and cartoon ( normally the Japanese manga kind), and my paintings are more on the abstract side.

I'm a critique at heart. I'm normally the first person to tell you the mistakes you've made and I'll use IMO a lot (in my opinion). But I promise I'm not being mean, I absolutely detest when people jump on my case. I give you the pros and cons and hopefully help you become a better artist, I like inspiring people to do better.

I plan to either be a teacher of the arts or a video game designer as my profession later in life, making a web comic on the side.

I'm really proud of you if you read all that, and I'm open to talk to. I'm pretty friendly for the most part :]

How long has it been?

How long has it been?

Last journal entry was August? Darn, I haven't been on in a while. Though I'm sure that's good for some of you; you don't have to see artwork I feel the need to post xD I miss you guys! If any of you noters or commenters want to add me on skype, I'll send it your way! I always like having more people to talk to. I feel like my conversations are running thin as of late. I'm not a depressing person on messengers, honest xD But I am a smiley ho. Take that as you will. School has been driving me crazy, and has made me really question what I want to do with the rest of my life. My passion hasn't truly moved away from becoming an art teacher, t

Running Out Of Excuses

Running Out Of Excuses

My brother has found my screen tones. I'm running out of excuses to delay making my manga. I really want to start it, but I'm absolutely terrified that it wont come out the way I want it to and that I'll kill it. After ten years of my life and a good chunk of my soul being poured into one story, I really want it to be the best it can possibly be. While I'm good at drawing, I'm not amazing. And amazing is exactly what I want people to see when they read. My goal is to start it before the end of this year, so basically drawing nothing but action scenes and working with screen tones to make sure I've gotten it all down. Hopefully my panels will

Last iPad Journal

Last iPad Journal

Well, today is the day I have to give my iPad back to my school. Ill really hate not having it, it's been a life saver all year and I've put quite a few hours into it. I removed a majority of my apps, dwindling it down to crunchy roll, Facebook, YouTube, and Skype. I love the crunchy roll app, I've been using it a lot recently. I got into Fate/Zero and I'm really loving it. Fate/Stay Night was pretty good, but I love the atmosphere in Zero much more. It's focused and serious and it's heart wrenching to see a majority of the masters having goals that really need to be attained from the Grail. I recommend it to anyone who watched Fate/Stay Nig
