(Feb 13, 2009) - Wow, last update was 6.5 years ago! I'm NOT in highschool now, lol. I NOT even in "just college". I'm a graduate student in a Linguistics MA program, getting my TESOL certificate. After that, I hope to return to my hometown, get a teaching license and teach adults ESL. Also I hope to go back to school and get a degree in Art, probably Illustration. My art has really suffered over the last 5 years, because I have little time for anything fun, and even when I do have free time I lack inspiration, all I can think about is what assignment I need to worry about next.....Hopefully I'll get back into doing some artwork soon. I HAVE been doing stuff lately, but its not fantasy art, or at least most of it isnt'. I'm currently obsessed with Gothic Lolita stuff and (well its not new) vampires. I love the extravagent manga art styles...but I am not anywhere near that good,lol. I've got some stuff up in my deviant gallery, including tons of photos, but I don't think i can upload them here due to it being a "fantasy and sci-fi" specific space :)(July 13th, 2003) Hm...Okay, I'll I've to say is that I really have needed to overhaul this for a long time...my profile still said I was 14...and I'm 16...plus all of the pictures below are pretty old, so I'm gonna spend this week scanning new pictures and loading them, hopefully I'll have a ton of new stuff up in a week or so....
Oh, picture doesn't look like me anymore...looked like me in middle of Freshman year when I had fushia colored hair...and I WISH I were that skinny...
(July 17th, 2003) I've added 4 pictures...but with all the tickets in que, I don't know when they will get up here!
(July 28th, 2003) Alright! The ticket I submitted was finally approved!!! So now there are 5 new pictures here. They aren't master pieces, but I think they are good examples of what I've been wasting my time doing this last year! Why do I say wasting? Because I feel as though I haven't improved at all. I let that evil incompetent so-called 'art teacher' ruin my desire to do anything (I had her 2 hours a day, everyday, all week, all year....) I'm just now recovering...and I hope to spend these next couple months working super hard to get better at realism and proportions! And maybe I'll take a shot at doing some males? I'm thinking of writing a story...or at least trying to...(I always lose motivation after a few chapters...) So I'll add some character pictures if I can manage to do them justice. Please, leave comments (praise is nice, constructive critism is wonderful!) and if you are an elfwood artist, I'll make sure to visit your gallery and return the favore!Check out these Elfwood pages.. Taryn is one of my friends, who happened to have gone to my school (she's graduated 2003) and also went on the same trip to Germany as me!
Anna Riley doesn't know who I am (I don't think) but she went to my school also (another Graduate 2003) and was in my art class as independant study...she's really good!
Jenny ('Gold Seven') Dolfen has a great talent for watercolors! I love her style, and I love her renditions of the Harry Potter characters! She also has an awesome fantasy gallery!
Erin J. Kluk is another person who has really nice Harry Potter pictures! I love 'Moonflowers'...but then, I love Snape in general ^-^
Hope Hoover *sigh* I love her JRR Tolkien art. Totally totally awesome. Go visit, immediately! (well...after you look at my gallery...)
