Hello everyone!
It's been a long while since the last post here. I've been busy studying and doing different stuff like avoiding my thesis work, and I haven't been drawing much. But that is changing right now!

My current personal blog/website can be found at zeggo.fi , although I haven't updated it in a while either. Might update at some point. In Finnish only!

My current drawing project is a co-drawing blog with my husband, where we draw a picture for each day of this year: piirto.kammo.net , also only in Finnish.

As for offline stuff:
I recently had some drawings presented in a museum as part of a manga and art focused exhibition. Most of the works were some older stuff such as Naruto fanart, but I did draw a new piece for the exhibition. I guess I could upload it here as well.

I also took a game design course at the university during autumn and then applied for a game project course for spring. The course begins on Monday and I'll be in the role of a graphic designer / artist, making actual game art for a playable prototype! I'm a bit nervous as I don't have the specific skills for game art, but I will do my best. I am really interested about game design even though I'm not aiming to make games for a living.

I've had trouble with drawing equipment not working well the last few years, but I should at least be able to lend a drawing tablet for the game project, if I don't buy one for myself. After struggling with drawing screens and their calibrations, I think I'll go back to a separate slate for a while. And I will need to learn to use new software for sure, the Gimp version I have just does not cut it anymore.

But for those who came to see my art here, welcome! Do note how old most of the stuff is and hope for some new stuff coming up, either here or elsewhere.

Hi everyone!

It seems I've been really inactive in DA for the past two years already... So yeah, just saying hello to you who might read my journal.

My artistry is on the dead side right now, as I've been drawing very, very little. Even though I like the drawings I do, they aren't of the kind I'd put into DA (like portraits of people or miscellaneous doodles).
Even though I bought a new laptop last summer that I could draw more with (it has a built-in wacom tablet as its screen!), I had driver issues with the programs I use to draw, so that excitement was cut too short.

For some other things, I'm finishing my bachelor's very soon (the thesis is already done, topic: video games in language teaching!). As the last part I spent three weeks in Montreal, Quebec on a French immersion course :) We got back just few days ago, so I'm still suffering/enjoying a bit of jetlag. It was kinda our honeymoon, too - I got married in February! (on Leap day :D) So life is great. And no, I'm not pregnant (yet).

After the rest of the summer holiday I'll really begin my teacher training and hopefully start working on my master's thesis, too. It'll be a tough year since I'm so perfectionist at times, but let's see if I'll find some great artistic inspiration on the way.

How are you guys doing?

6 months

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 5, 2010, 3:40 AM
Hello everyone!

I finally drew something and wanted to update this journal as well. And yay, a free journal skin trial!

Today marks the day of 6 months together with my boyfriend - and I guess I haven't mentioned that we have been living together for two months now :)
We now have a working Wii console, whee!

I started studying Japanese, something I have wanted to do for some time. It's quite fun ^^
I've also done lots of geocaching recently - I recommend trying it!

Oh yeah, I'm attending Desucon next weekend. I hope I'll see some of you there, too!

Hello, all of you!

Long time no update, once again, but yeah. This is university. We all just have to deal with it.
I just wanted to give a little news for those who don't follow me elsewhere. Since I haven't yet finished more drawings, I'll just have to spam my journal.

So, I have a boyfriend (who is lovely and who I love and all), and we have now been together for about two months (from many to come).
Maybe the best thing about this for those interested mainly in my art is that he's got a cintiq.
A WACOM CINTIQ OH YES <333 The drawing "Colorblind" was made with it, but I'm certainly going to get more practise using it.
He also has Photoshop of course. So more to learn for me...

About Päivänvarjo (my personal website), then. I haven't done anything to them in about 8 months. That sounds bad, and it is quite lazy from me. But: boyfriend to the rescue! He's studying IT, and he has experience of making nice websites. As soon as I can breathe from studies again, I'll start planning a whole new Päivänvarjo with lots of new and better content. Idealistically speaking.

Oh yeah, one more thing to add to this "list of reasons I could be drawing 24/7 (but I'm not)" is that now I have :heart: my own scanner :heart:, a very handsome all-in-one printer, Epson Stylus SX 115. A little noisy, but works.

Sooo... I could draw. I could scan. I could update Päivänvarjo.
Why, oh why did I choose to be a nice student and take a lot of courses and do my homework?

Haha, no journals for - how many months? Two?

Well, a month of university life has kept me busy. I moved to Jyväskylä (300kms away from home) and now live in a 3-cell apartment. It's big enough, tidy enough and especially vry cheap! I just got a noisy restaurant right under my room, but I'm used to the drunks yelling under my window already... almost.

Studying really is a full-time job, if you didn't know that yet! I just finished the first period with two exams, which went fine. The courses have mainly been fun and interesting, and some of the teachers are just hilarious! It's truly music to my ears, to hear native speakers every day. I am very motivated to study languages, but sometimes the workload still makes me nervous. Usually the problem is just my self-discipline - I really should stay away from those facebook-games...
Oh yeah, mention me if you want to friend me in facebook.

Nowadays I feel often quite inspired and self-confident about my drawings. As I got lots of new friends, I get also much feedback. And those less interesting classes are excellent for scribbling! (I really do it because it helps me learn! Honestly!) I just can't find the time to finish drawings, if I try to keep up with the courses, that is...

Relationships I won't blabber about - yet...
But everything's fine. I've been just really happy with my life, I've become much more optimistic. And I recommend it to anyone, being happier really makes things easier and troubles smaller!


PS. My birthday ended a minute ago (Finnish time) : D

Animecon VII / Finncon 2009... Was better than I expected, it was great!
More than Animecon, I liked to listen to Finncon's guests of honour: Alastair Reynolds, George R. R. Martin, Adam Roberts... Rocket science, writing science fiction and stuff :D

I myself didn't cosplay or sell my art, but I think I supported many Finnish artists on those three days : D Every day I bought something from the artist's alley - what I'll do with all that art, dunno, but... They're so pretty ^3^ Should I list the artists who I bought something from? They're really great.

I met Zanna-kun again, this time we even talked for a while ^__^ (though I really was in a hurry, sry ;_;) and I was found by an ACTUAL FAN, Arfikka! THANK YOU, it cheered me up tons.
I know that SirMeo, Iaikaa and Liftrashir were there, but I just couldn't find them or vice versa.


Other stuff than that:

I can use my tablet again, YAAYYYJJJJ! And I'm eager to use it, when I have time, inspiration and patience...
But, our scanner is broken, and I'm waiting for my dad to buy a new one. So, my traditional draings have to wait, once again.
I'll probably buy myself an own scanner when I move away to Jyväskylä, but not yet.

Today and tomorrow I'm really working in the piggery, since I'm first time fully responsible for all the pigs... My parents and our worker are away from home, and my sister got sick (luckily not pig influenza!) so I had to learn feeding pigs in a day. Everything's still fine, I hope tomorrow goes well also...
But I really have to get enough sleep in the evening (plus naps), waking up 6am isn't too fun T_T

So sorry for still not uploading much, but... I want to make my works good.

I got the letter from university of Jyväskylä! Hurray! :dance:
I got accepted to both English (major) and French language (minor), though not to straight studies of a teacher, what I want. But this is nice, too! :D

So, now I'll be getting accommodation from Jyväskylä, buying furniture and all the stuff I'll need for studying. Wow.
...Maybe I should buy a new drawing tablet, since the CD is still nowhere to be found...

I've been very lazy with updating, but I'll try and draw something really good some time and upload lots.

But now, PARTY!

Haa, summer holiday's here! ('holiday'... I'm working all summer at home...)

I went to some entrance exams, but for the last ones I lost motivation and didn't show up - I really want in Jyväskylä, so why try the other places? I think I did fairly well, but I really can't tell if I'm in or not. A month of wait for the results, gah!

I broke up with my boyfriend about a week ago, I left him. Though it's not nice to leave someone, it really made me feel better, lighter, more free... Especially more single ;)

Then about drawings.
Yeah, I'm really screwed without the CD for my tablet - I can't draw on my laptop at all, and I can't keep using the old PC forever, especially when I move away. I'm probably buying an own scanner and other stuff for drawing, but I wouldn't need a new tablet if it weren't for this...

Traditional works, I did draw something I could upload, but... maybe I'm saving it for later, some special occasion. That would be fun ^^
Zhea, the actual comic, is giving me a headache, though. It isn't bad, no, I just can't finish any pages of all I've sketched and started working on... Comics aren't easy, and I really want to make the art look at least as good as in my other works.

Oh, well, see you later!

Hello again! ^^

Today I got my student test results - yes, I've passed all with very good grades, and I graduate from high school :D Some points here or there dropped, but the grade was same - and Swedish even rose to a better grade! I was surprised! With that, I have nothing to complain of...

Also, I've been *strictly* reading for universities' entrance exams, and I do think and hope I'll do fine. I'll be applying for teaching English and French in Jyväskylä, Turku, Helsinki and/or Tampere. Many exams, but thankfully I don't have to attend every exam I've signed up to. First exams are already on May 26th and 27th!

I'm now using my own laptop I bought some weeks ago : D It's ASUS F5GL, and I've been pretty happy with it - it's fast, nicely sized, brightness and other stuff is adjustable... Though it has twice rebooted itself with NO reason at all, that I don't like. I can play Sims 2 again, yay! (While waiting Sims 3... Not long!)
But I can't find the program CD for my tablet, so I really can't do much for drawings on my laptop. I also tried to enter the latest coloring contest of :iconcolor-me-club:, but I couldn't finish it in time ;_;. I'm not sure if I'm anymore motivated enough to finish it now...

But I've been drawing a little something else recently, that I wouldn't lose my skills :P I'll try and upload stuff when I get the time - graduation party coming up (May 30th and forward), I have lots of house-cleaning to do!

Hello, if you happen to read this.

I haven't really updated anything here on DA for a long time. And it'll stay like that maybe for a while.

Currently I'm once again busy with student tests, more accurately reading for them. All of them are 3-6h exams, final tests of finnish high school. Next week I'll have exam in mother tongue and psychology, the week after that is Swedish and long Math.

I have surprised even myself on how little I've been drawing recently! Not even doodling! I do have some nonfinished works from earlier, but... Yet nothing to upload.

But, when I've finished with these exams AND the entrance exams for university AND moving away from home, I'll draw and really try to get my Zhea-comic done.

PS. I've got a new boyfriend keeping me busy ;) We haven't been together for even two months, but of course we've known each other longer. We'll see...

So, I'll get something done for you by the end of this hiatus of some kind. Wait for it! *bows*

I'll be 18 until the day I'm nineteen :D

Ah, it was fun. I spent some real quality time with two of my great friends. With one of them I visited some bars in the city and danced, danced, danced :D Oh well, I had my stupid sneakers on so I was a horrid sight, but I don't care!
One guy I've met maybe once before bought me a drink that was just like milkshake, I don't know what it really was :D I told my friend to take care of me, if it would have been sedative... But I felt nothing.

I got a yellow teddy bear that looks a lot like my teddy I lost when I was a kid T_T It's so cute!
And I got another lovely teddy bear also, and she's pink! She's so huggable!

And I got chocolate, candy, manga, handshakes... Aww!
Thankyou, you all :heart:

I also voted today, in the municipal election. I was probably the youngest voter in my commune, turned 18 just one day before :D And the results are already in, it looks great 4 years coming ^^

So, finally trying to get a good night sleep. See you again with some drawings!

My birthday's once again on the 25th of October, so of course I've written an ultimately selfish wishlist!

In Finnish, the whole list's here, but here at DA I'm only going to mention this:
I'll be happy for every drawing, photo and card I'll receive,
every happy thing or feeling, encouragement, positiveness and attention I'll get.

And naturally, since I'll turn 18, I'm going to party and dance my socks off. Maybe try some drinks, if I've got some good company.

But most of all, I love happy surprises. I hope.

I, myself, want to finish one niice drawing for my birthday, as a present from me. I've been reading a drawing book, trying stuff and...

Hey, it's a week's holiday!

I'll try and draw as much as possible, but... I haven't felt like it for a while. I'll try, I try.

Hiya.
The first exam week starts (exceptionally) this Saturday, luckily I don't have an exam then, and the goes on whole next week.
Student exams (the final exams of Finnish high school) started already though, with the English listening comprehension test... I managed well, now I have to do the same with the written test!
Tomorrow's the first part of mother tongue's stundent exam, where you have to analyze different textes... I think it's the hardest exam of them all, but I'll see it tomorrow.

Totally other things: I got a totally new haircut today! My hair's never been this short since I was 7 years old... Exciting!
Currently you can see it in my webcam, but it won't be long before I draw tons of narcistic self portraits again ^^ I hope I'll get better photos, too.
I also got an inspiration of some sort, but...I really have to read now.

Wish me luck, please?

PS. Now I'm on Facebook - friend me if you've seen me live ^^

Hey, just a quick update on recent things.
I was on a bear safari at Kuhmo. Mighty interesting, plus I got a huge inspiration on Zhea!
So, I've been drawing and planning... The third page is one hell to draw, though, so it's hard to get the first pages online anytime soon.
But now I strongly feel I'll never give this up again! Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down... Krhm.
The idea of a simple love story has grown into a history of another world... And while at it, it tells deep stories of single persons... All this accompanied by amazing art and- *whack*
Okay, let's see how long it'll take me to put the first pages up.

My last year in high school starts next morning. I won't say "summer went too fast", 'cause I worked my ass off this year. Well, at least on some areas. I really hope I have time to relax and concentrate on comics...
Maybe I should go and sleep...

PS. Zeggo @ irc-galleria.net , what happened to my principles?!

So, now my summer cons are over, Nekocon at Kuopio and Finncon/Animecon at Tampere. Looted some manga, magazines, posters and key chains...

Nekocon wasn't too big (3000 visitors over two days). There was interesting stuff, lots of new things and the best: a big room for Stepmania dancing.

Animecon, instead, is the biggest Anime convention in Finland, and it was connected with sci-fi/fantasy convention Finncon. At times the corridors were filled with people, sweaty nerds and cosplayers in heavy costumes...
The shows and the panel discussions were very interesting, though moving in the masses took so much time that I couldn't really get a lunch break... Plus the traffic didn't encourage me into shopping, so my mood go worse as time passed.

But I actually met some people, hurray! I found Zanna-kun almost immediately, since she wasn't hard to notice in her big wolf-costume... Soon I encountered Yolko, who I've also met in the previous Animecon. Later I noticed Pur-kissa and said hi, though she didn't remember me at all ;_;
There were many others from DA also e.g. selling art, but I really don't know them at all or I don't remember their nicknames anymore ^^'
And as hard as I tried I couldn't find SirMeo. Well, no one really found me before I found them, so I'll just have to settle with few encounters per con.


Now my head keeps spinning annoyingly, my body hurts and I really don't feel good, so I think I'll get back to reading the stuff I bought.

Katsotaan jos raahaudun vielä muihin coneihin vuoden mittaan!

Woah, what a summer. I've been in two heavy concerts in a week - first time in my life :D Teräsbetoni and Kotiteollisuus, and though I'm not a fan of either, I enjoyed myself.

And as I've said in a scrap's comments, I've been sketching some pages out my comic Zhea. Now I've drawn Gaia avi art, though, in lack of inspiration... But I'm really working on making a good, readable and enjoyable comic with my full artistic talent. How glamorous that sounds.
But I've finally realised a big thing to me: Drawing comics will never be easy. After all practising and learning there will still come up things you can't draw like nothing.

PS. I finished reading Harry Potter - the Deathly Hallows! Now I can enjoy all the lovely and spoilerific fanart over DA, yayj!


Now in Finnish, since it's Finnish cons I'm talking about.

Huomenna Nekoconiin! Sisarusten ja joidenkin kavereiden kanssa Kuopioon hillumaan...
En cossaa, mutta minut tunnistaa Zeggo-lapusta selässä, repussa tai jossain kiinni, ja varmaan olette nähneet kuviakin minusta. Saa ja pitää tulla tökkimään jos tunnistaa, en pure!

Kuun lopulla odottaakin Animecon, minne menen samoin varustein, nickini lapussa, sillä; tuskin ehdin toteuttaa cossausideaani (vinkki: Super Paper Mario -pelistä :D) siihen mennessä...
Mutta molemmissa coneissa pyörin molempina päivinä. Toivottavasti törmään uusiin tuttuihin!

The coloring contest is now over!
And, as efficient I am, I've already decided the winner out of the huge pile of entries (3)!

And the winner is...

...
*drumroll*
...

:iconthe-black-wolf:The-Black-Wolf with her awesome coloring! Congratulations! :clap:
Her work really presented nice coloring work, color choises and lovely clothes design. And her work has a background which creates a story and a nice atmosphere!

The winner gets a full request work from me in any available media.

And the runner-ups, Sherrypie and Jazzy-Devine get nothing, since they are both on the second place, I'm lazy and they've already got drawings from me earlier.
But thankyou for participating and making this contest possible anyway :bow:


If you got interested in taking part in a contest but couldn't make it to this deadline, don't worry: I've already got an idea for the next drawing contest. But that'll get to wait for some time, so look forward to it!

The deadline for my coloring contest is now 20th July, since I probably won't be home on the 15th or don't have time then. There are now three entries entered, so you've still got great chances to get a great request drawing from me!
So click and color: zeggolisko.deviantart.com/jour…
You can also color my other works in the Linearts-folder in my gallery, but they're not in the contest.


Don't forget, Albel-is-MINE has a contest you can draw or write for! Check it out: albel-is-mine.deviantart.com/j…



New stuff: My sister graduated, yay! Now I'm intensely working (at home) for a week or so, then I hope I can start the real summer holiday. At least I finally finished my latest coloring, I'll see if I've got any drawing laying around, waiting to be scanned or so.
I already burnt my shoulders really bad in the sun, after two days they are still like mashed...

THE GREAT REVIVAL OF THE CONTEST : D

DEADLINE: 20 June

A coloring contest! Woo!

First contest I've ever held... Let's see how this'll go.

Theme: None, just color the lineart, make a background and use your imagination as much as you can.
Media: You can color it traditionally, digitally, or with any media you want.
Limit for entries: Only one entry per person! If you make more colorings, choose the one to enter the contest.

Prizes: The maker of the best coloring gets a finished art request (trad. or dig.)
I may also reward other works, so don't worry about not being the best ;) (you may suggest more prizes)

Coloring instructions and rules for altering the lineart are in the Artist's comments of the lineart. Remember to read them!

So what am I talking here?
Here's THE LINEART

Sending the finished piece: Send me a note with the link to your coloring (a deviantart submission or the URL of the image)
You can upload your coloring into your gallery or scraps, if you want to. Just remember to mention clearly that I made the lineart.

Off you go!

Participants:
1. Jazzy-Devine
2. Sherrypie
3. The-Black-Wolf
4.
