It's very funny seeing how much my art has changed in the past year or so - I hardly go on DeviantArt anymore, only really to take a quick glance at the front page, the daily deviatations and to clean out my inbox a bit.

However, one thing I've found is that in such a short space of time my art style has developed so much - in the past year or two I have developed faster than I ever have, looking at pieces on here now that I was once proud of, I now only see mistakes in them. As I have mentioned many times, I have lots of technology problems at the moment which means that I have not been able to draw digitally in such a long time... But now I'm becoming restless again, and I want to take it back up.

Thankyou to anyone reading this, and I sincerely hope I will be back properly soon...

 

p.s, would anybody be interested if I set up a tumblr for my work? Comment if you would be, thanks :)

But I haven't drawn digitally properly in about 8 months.... Which is a real kick in the teeth :I
I decided that I wanted to take a break from DeviantART for a bit, maybe a few months? But it's turned into longer than that and I've stopped drawing digitally altogether... My style has REALLY developed, and it's a bit sad because I've stopped drawing cartoony and have gone onto a more mature style. I like it, but at the same time I miss drawing my cartoons, sharing them with you guys and getting feedback and good responses and ultimately, (I hope), spreading a little happiness with them. So I've decided I'm finally going to draw a cartoon digitally again and see if I've lost my touch, which I might have.... Even if I think the outcome is good, if you guys don't think what I've drawn is good enough I will probably quit digital drawing altogether (I'm very dependant on other people's opinions xD)

So, see you and I hope you like whatever the next cartoon I draw is c:

Hey all,
I'd just like to make it official that I'm taking a break from DA - I've found keeping up to date with this aswell as my studies and RPing a wire fence (DON'T ASK), quite stressful. I'm going to concentrate on improving my art skills from now until whenever I next post a journal - it could be a few weeks, maybe even months. I don't know, just whenever I feel I can come back and when my life is less hectic.

Thankyou all so much for the support! I love you!<3

Copies of the comic for free, shipping included! And what's more, the contest is extremely simple; just write a funny caption about the project in one or two sentences. See below for more details....

Hey everyone!

I've had quite a big artblock recently, and yet I've been dying to draw things yet without inspiration..... So, for this week (14th - 21st October) I will be taking one free request per person from ANYONE :) I can't promise I'll complete them all quickly since I work very slowly... ^^; Just comment on this journal about what you'd like me to draw, and if you'd like in what style (e.g cell-shaded).

I'm sorry I've been so inactive..... been doing quite a lot of traditional work, and I also have exams coming up :noes:

IS EVERYONE PUMPED FOR SKYWARD SWORD?!?!
I KNOW I AM :O :O :O

As you all know, the reason that Ocarina of Time was remade for the 3DS is because fans asked for it so much. Well we can do it again! Eiji Aonuma said in an interview that, "if fans want it enough, we will hear their voices." So... If enough people want the remake, they'll take it into consideration!

So what can you do?

Well, there are lots of facebook pages, petitions etc that you can like/sign below - but one of the most effective ways I think is by sending them an email. I did this a couple of days ago, and got a reply that said this;

" Hello,

Thanks for contacting us.

We appreciate the enthusiasm of our Zelda fans! I wanted to let you know that your comments have been documented and reported to the relevant departments here at Nintendo.

At the risk of dampening the excitement you feel, I must be clear that no official announcements have been made regarding a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 3DS. However, we like hearing what our consumers find important. ''

So they hear your voices DIRECTLY if you send them an email! I think this would definitely be the most effective way of tackling this, and it may help even more if you give reasons to show your passion for it.
