I swear one day I'll wake up covered in pink paint XXD
Updates and... Computer issues?Wow, it's been too long! I even feel a bit guilty, actually!
I'm kicking 10th grade's butt, and I'm nowhere near finished. 'Thing is; my county raised its standards this year. I was told Freshman year was the hardest, but hey, I got thrown a curveball it seems. It's a ton of a work, you see, and I haven't been able to touch my Wacom in over two weeks! I haven't even been able to answer notes or check my inbox! So many deviations, AAAHH.
BUT! I can't complain. I'm well on my way to reaching those goals I set for myself here;
I've just completed my first paper for a scholarship and I'm having a few teachers proofread it before I send it in, I've joined the SGA office board and I'll be campaigning for Sophomore president soon, I plan to start staying after school for Spanish and I already do stay after school for Math and I come in early every morning to work.
I hate how suddenly distracted my TAG teacher gets-- s
ID Contest Results~!Original Contest Information here: http://pinkufootsie.deviantart.com/journal/Holding-a-Contest-466993214
Finally I found the chance to take a good look at entries from my dA ID Contest! There were four contestants, so I took the liberty of changing a few things regarding prizes-- don’t worry, the changes are good!
All of the contestants will have three artworks featured and all of the contestants will have a chance at my little two-winner raffle (20 or a free request~)! It wouldn’t be that fair if those extra prizes just went to waste, amIright? Right!
First Place goes to WolfSong-of-Dragon, with her nostalgic entry;
- Words cannot express! I squealed when I saw my dear Vaporeon, Aqua! It’s been so long since I paid her any love, so I’m so glad that you thought of her. The background really helps tie it all together, and the memories it brings back are so sweet~!
-For your creativity and effort, you’re rewarded with
My deviantART StorySo I decided to write up this journal seeing as so many people had decided to do it as well.
My deviantART story began a little over 3 and a half years ago, back when I was a wee little 11-year-old. All the kids at school began to recognise me as that girl who could draw. Rather uninterested in mainstream social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc., etc., I found myself exploring the internet for places to look at drawings and essentially cute, child-minded art and I stumbled upon the great and marvelous DeviantArt.com. My first desire was to save the endless stream of pictures I adored for my future viewing, and I remember typing in my birth year as 1989 to ensure a smooth acceptance into the dA community. Looking back, I was as immature as any other kid my age, judging by my earliest journal entries.
is just one example of younger me being an absolute demon spawn. I'm serious, I just want to go back and beat past-me
~Good and Bad News~Yoooo!
I thought I'd do a quick update. I'm gonna start out with the good news ;
My recovery is going great! A while ago, I was even able to switch my prescription drugs for OTC meds, then for the past few days I didn't need to take anything at all! This morning I went over to my podiatrist's office and I finally got my velcro boot (aka, 'air cast', since different podiatrists sometimes use different terms.)! This means that in a little less than a month from now, I should be able to walk in my new air cast. I'll also be receiving physical therapy and some assistance with range of motion every now and then.
If everything goes according to plan, at some point between 6 months to a year from now, I should be able to walk without my special boot and, hopefully, even have the ability to run, jump, skip, etc. Yaay~!!
Lemme just say, you guys make my heart sing! Always so nice and asking how I'm recovering and how I'm doing-- you peeps rule! :iconletmehugyouplz: Seriously
Holding a Contest~!Big News! Contest Time!
To celebrate me finally getting over the worst part of my recovery, the gist/majority/most of my depression, and -- hey, 80 flippin' Watchers, I've decided I'll hold my second ever contest!
So I've been planning to make a new dA ID for myself for a while, but I haven't been getting any good ideas for one. That's pretty much the whole idea here! A while ago I held the same contest, but I only got one entry. So as I catch up to my to-do list for dA, I figure this is another great opportunity to feature artwork of my fellow Deviants again!
I'll get straight to the rewards;
Two free requests from me in the style of these;
That would include a full background and anything of your choice.
A headshot request from :iconJohn-san:
Pardon Me--- as I proceed to fuck around for, say, another week?... or two?
Let me explain:
I'm a bit depressed, yeah? So now I've been sleeping for approximately 20 hours a day for the past few days. Yeah, that's not good. And I've stacked on some serious pounds, as in, 'eating-seven-full-meals-a-day' pounds.
Literally. I'm serious. I'm afraid to weigh myself.
I haven't been feeling life-enthusiastic enough to drag myself to my computer to draw, but I feel obliged, as I have a "life" here on dA.
-So pardon me as I take an even longer time to reply to notes, comments, and everything else. I promised a friend of mine I'd draw a comic for her (teehee, Krosfox stuff, you know who you are~), so that's what I'm doing right now. Slowly, but... I'm doing it. I'm trying.
In the meantime, I'll probably make a new ID... show off some completely original characters of mine I plan to use in the near-ish future... I kind of have a long to-do list, but....
... I'm feeling too exhausted and unmotivated to keep

Does Anyone Else Hear That?Sorry everyone... today, for me, was wasted away by some of my medications. I would have tried to catch up on my roleplays... but I keep drifting on and off... or is it in and out...?

Want a Character Feature~?For the first 10 people who comment on this journal, I will feature on of their characters and give a reason why. I will go to your gallery and pick one character, you don't need to tell me which one.
If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone.
How can I not love this adorable little creature!? Each drawing he's in is beautiful, with lovely backgrounds and an evident attention to detail. I really wish to see more of him, especially because every depiction you make of the little guy makes me ponder what his journey is all about.
After a pret-ty good amount of diggin', I think I found one of your absolute most adorable characters! I don't know anything much about Neope

For this contest, It'll be focused on her or her family. (who are also Inuyasha OCs)
She's paired with a canon character from the anime,

SAVE THE LOUD HOUSE!!!IF YOU LIKE TLH, THEN SPREAD THIS IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
If you didn't know, I like this recent show on Nick called The Loud House, and you should go check it out too!
But that's not the thing.... The thing is that One Million Moms is trying to cancel this show for a REALLY stupid reason. Here's why:
In the episode "Overnight Success.", It appears that the Louds are having a slumber party. In one scene, Lincon's friend Clyde gets dropped off by his parents for the slumber party. Seems ok, right? But NOOO, the Moms are angry because Clyde has TWO Dads IN A TINY LITTLE CAMEO. AND THAT'S THE ONLY THING THEY KNOW ABOUT THE EPISODE!!!
Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage on a network that is designed for kids.
And that's a bad thing HOW???? That's like saying "Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to b

One Year Laterhttp://koili.deviantart.com/journal/Well-546094597
Exactly one year ago, I was alone in my room, crying. Panicking about what was going to happen in a few hours. I was going to leave behind the only life I knew.
One year ago, I was covered in grease, sweat and dirt. I showered once a month. I barely ate. My clothes and bedding were never washed. I was awoken or kept up every night by my drunken mother who would scream at me for no reason. Every night ended in tears until I passed out from exhaustion. I know she tried to be a good mom, and it was my fault she started drinking in the first place.
I had known :iconchillaid: for five years prior. We had gotten close in 2013 over Animal Crossing: New Leaf. We both found each other at the right time. Our friendship flourished from there. We roleplayed every night and bonded so much. We got so close. I considered her my sister.
:iconchillaid: would hear what my mom would do over Skype. She would stay up with me for the entire night comforting
What's with 'Studying from Life'!?This is the revisiting of a news article I wrote a few years back.
Allow me to begin this article by mentioning that this was written with aspiring professionals in mind. For those of you who wish to pursue art as a hobby with no intention to make it a career choice, I have no doubts in your abilities as an artist, but art for you is a pleasure seeking thing. I would never wish to turn it into something even remotely reminiscent of 'stressful work'--as a hobby should never come to that. So for you hobbyists, feel free to take this article in, but by no means feel obliged to apply the information if you do not find enjoyment in doing so.
As for you aspiring pros, this is an inevitable and unavoidable step you must take in pursuit of your career. This is your job--and if you don't like it, you're probably pursuing the wrong career!
But I digress.
I, like many of you--strive to be a professional in the field of art. In particular, I am an illustrator. I've been fortunate enough to
