Taako Twins
Fan art of Lup and Taako from The Adventure Zone! Since it's an audio medium, I have pretty much no idea how things are really supposed to look. I regularly change my image for the characters depending on my mood and inspiration. Here's the twins and how they popped in my brain today.  
Miqo'te Cuddles
A friend of mine was looking for some commissioned art. While I don't really think I'm skilled enough just yet to be paid for stuff, I asked for the character details and drew his character for him so I could be motivated to complete something. I haven't drawn things in awhile, and I definitely haven't touched digital art in probably 6-7 years, so here it is. Not perfect, but a lot better than I anticipated. 

I've recently decided I want to step away from anime-styled things, so this will probably be the last anime-based thing I post :) 
Doodles - Getting the Groove Back
So I just wanted to upload this to my scrapbook real quick so that those that are interested can see that I am actually TRYING to make art happen again xD

1: Character sketches I started on the day I wrote my newest journal entry, where I pretty much was just trying to find myself again. The amount of erasing I am doing is insane here. I forgot how to do everything, and I mostly forgot my style. Things I was kind of proud of though were my take on the fabric ruffles. I even forgot how I drew eyes -_-; It's a mess

2: I sat down and actually tried to remember how to do poses with my tried and true "wire frame" method as I call it in my head. I had some success, but even though it was a lot better than day 1, It didn't feel like it was actually my style. 

3: I hashed out some stylistic things today, looking through old deviations for starting points for how I did the little things, like eyes, nose and mouth. But I also decided today that I kind of want to morph my style into something newer as well -- something a little more maleable. So I think I got the gist on how I want to structure faces, and I think I made a lot of progress as far as subtle perspective issues go, as in "how can I make someone stand without looking pigeon-toed." TONS of erasing to the point that she looks like she has a weird 5 o'clock shadow, but I actually feel like I've reached a point where I can kind of jump off from here and do some more finished work :)

My mission in life is to bring happiness and positivity wherever I go. One of the outlets I try to do this through is art, but...well...I'm just a hobby artist so no guarantees that you'll be happy looking at it! Just know I feel happy making it!

I'm also starting to get into the cosplay scene. We'll see how this goes >_>
My last journal was in 2013... holy crap. o.o That's a lot of life to catch up on! 

Since my last visit, much has happened! I've had several different jobs -- worked at a bank, taught Japanese to high school students, and now I'm working as a Fraud Analyst for a bank. My boyfriend from 2013 and I got engaged in 2013, then he moved from England to the US in July of 2016. We got married last year in September, and we just signed the lease for our first apartment together the other day, so life is looking great. 

While packing up to move, I found my old sketchbooks, and so many memories of all the times I spent with so many of you in different RP groups, whether they be one of various pokemon groups, or Drake Academy -- all those memories flooded back. It was bittersweet looking at my first sketches and seeing how far I'd evolved, only to realize that I haven't touched drawing in about 7 years or so... I gave up when i was really starting to get some important concepts! I remembered how peaceful it was, laying on my bed with some good music and just drawing the day away. 

On that note, I've decided I want to try to pick things back up. I want to continue my evolution. But I find it really difficult just to draw random stuff, and I find myself so much more motivated when there is a story behind the character, and that character interacts with some of you. Now I'm really not interested in RPing anything super fandom specific anymore, but I am interested in joining some RP communities again. So if you have some in mind, again, not pokemon or fandom centered, I'd really like to hear what's out there! 

Anyway, look forward to my comeback! Hopefully it happens XD
