Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 1, 2013, 9:40 AM

It's been a long time since I wrote a journal, but I am still here! I've moved from digital art into costuming over the past few years and am loving every minute of it. If you would like to see more frequent updates than what I do here, you can follow my cosplay page on facebook:

Still reinstalling stuff to Daz Studio. It's a much larger project than I first thought.

I would like to invite everyone to visit my boyfriend's page that we just set up for him.

Lots of New art uploads

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 31, 2009, 2:04 PM

I decided to go through my folder of old art and upload stuff that wasn't on here. I also uploaded a lot of unfinished pieces to scraps. I hope to be able to upload entirely new stuff soon. I recently put a new hard drive in my laptop so I have to completely reinstall Daz Studio and all of my models for it. It's going to be a long project that I hope to complete over the next couple of weeks.

A really good friend of mine finally setup her page here, so please go take a look at her amazing art =)
  • Playing: WoW
  • Eating: nothing
  • Drinking: water
This is my first journal entry. I don't normally write these, so it will be brief. I was going through my art folder and realized I had quite a few pieces I hadn't uploiaded yet, so there is a lot of new art in my gallery. Enjoy!
