Trying out a new skin

Sat Sep 18, 2010, 3:07 PM
Found this skin here on DA, just trying it on for size.
I wanna game so badly but it seems like I don't have it in me to turn on any of my consoles. Silly me...

It won't be that long until I have 10000 visitors.
Gee, it's taken me an awful long time to come up to that amount, seeing as I've been a Deviant for SEVEN YEARS!
Yeah well, I guess I don't draw as well as I should and I have had my ups and downs when it comes to creativity.

But, I've made a drawing once more! Let's see if this can generate some visitors.

Anyways, I might as well announce that the one getting the kiriban for 10000 hits, gets to wish for a drawing.
Be aware that I am not a super-skilled artist and my can do's are limited. Just so you know. :P

I have a cold. I hate having colds.
Time to go shop for dinner.

What in the hell is going on here?!

Sun Dec 27, 2009, 10:00 AM
I am pretty upset with myself. No drawings, for a long time. Nothing, zip, nada. What the hell?!
I can't blame it all on getting a new computer (yey!) this summer and still not having installed either Painter nor my Wacom tablet. It's a shame. I'm ashamed!

It's amazing to me that people still find their way here, leave comments, add favs, start watching me. All based on old works.

I've been out of the loop for far too long. Still, I'm pretty scared to get back in. I guess drawing in one way is like riding a bike, once you learn you never forget it. With drawing, you will also always develop.

But, since I've been out of this rut for so long, do any of you kind artistic people have any idea where to start? I've tried sketching a little, on paper, but perhaps I'm being too hard on myself cause I want things to be just perfect as soon as I put the pencil to work.

So, any tips on how to get started if you're sort of rusty?

Happy holidays and happy new year as well! I promise I'll be back soon.

Almost a year since...

Sat Oct 25, 2008, 1:07 AM
I don't know what's wrong with me, but I haven't drawn anything since February! O_o Granted, a lot has happened in my life. I have a boyfriend, I am very busy with work all the time, I game as much as possible and some things just have to be pushed aside. Though I hate that my drawing has been put on hold. I feel so bad every time I log on here and see all the creativity. So, I haven't been on here for a very long time, but now I decided to show my face. Hopefully I will have time to draw something before 2009 arrives. I bet all my watchers have forgotten all about me...

Take care all of you. I will be back.

Kiriban 6000

Fri Feb 15, 2008, 3:46 PM
Kiriban 5,555 was won by :iconcoffee-chan: (I'm still waiting for your request BTW :)) and now there are not many hits left until 6000.

The rules are simple.
The one who gets my 6000 kiriban takes a screencap of that very moment.
Then that person requests a drawing made by me.

Preferably of a person or something since I only draw in manga/anime style, or some sort of fanart. Eh, we'll work out the details later. ;)

Good luck everyone! :D

New Oekaki BBS

Mon Jan 14, 2008, 3:58 PM
My old Oekaki BBS was removed, because it had not been used for 60 days. I am of course to blame for that. I used to draw a ton of oekakis, as my earlier work in my gallery will tell you.

I will do my best to keep this Oekaki BBS alive and well.
And if you are willing, I would be very happy if you were to draw something there sometime.

You will find the BBS here.

See you there, I hope! :)

So, now I have my PS3 connected and running. :) Ooooh, the shiney! :heart:

I also just completed Wild ARMs 5. Good game. Great game.

Now I think I need to go to sleep. Tomorrow I'll be attending the world premiere of the Final Fantasy-concert Distant Worlds. Nobuo Uematsu will be there as well! :D

It's coming...

Tue Nov 27, 2007, 2:36 PM
Oh yes, I've ordered a PS3. I just got an email confirming that it has been shipped and is on its way.
I'm so excited!
Then again, I don't really have any games that I wanna play on it right now. Sure, I get Motorstorm, but that's only fun for a while.

I am waiting and yearning for FF XIII and Versus XIII as so many others. Man, those games... I hope they will not disappoint me like FF XII did.

Anyways, I'm gonna take good care of my PS3 once it gets here. *can't wait* :excited:

Can old works be interesting?

Sat Nov 17, 2007, 2:53 PM
So, I've been thinking...
I have some old arts that I still like. I've thought about adding them to my gallery, but I dunno... It feels strange somehow, cause I don't really draw like that anymore. (Sometimes I think my old works were better than those I draw now...)
Also, what would the reaction of watchers be? Do people really wanna see older artworks? Ugh, I dunno... Maybe 12 AM at night is not the time to be thinking about this kind of stuff...

Soon

Wed Nov 14, 2007, 3:36 PM
6 hours into my new fanart. I'm telling you, I'm putting a lot of work into this one. I don't want to rush it and so far I've worked on it over 2 days time. I hope to finish it this week, but we'll see.

I'm afraid to ask... Kiriban 5555, anyone?

Well, I don't know if it's worth it, do people really care?

Anyways. Time to sleep.

Progress and new gallery features

Tue Nov 13, 2007, 4:03 PM
Working on a new fanart... 2 hours so far and making good progress on the lineart. Let's just hope it stays that way.

Us beta testers can now play with new features in the gallery. You can choose which images should be featured (if any) and you can make your own folders, drag and drop images and so on. It seems pretty nifty. :)

Well, I better go to bed, I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow.

Now :icondrottningfrey:'s gallery deserves more pageviews, comments and favs! She's been online for almost a year now and it pains me to see that I with my shitty art have more hits then she does. I mean, come on!

Just take a look at these pictures for example!
Angel +Coloration2+ freyjastraene.deviantart.com/a… , Alhana Starbreeze freyjastraene.deviantart.com/a…
and some elf XD (love the title ;)) freyjastraene.deviantart.com/a…

Don't you just think they are fantastic? :D And there's more. So go pay this girl a visit! Why? Because I said so! :XD:

If you're one of many who love stuff that's cute, I urge you to immediately visit :icongonnafly:'s page.
She does amazingly cute artworks of onigiris (rice balls) and they have completely stolen my heart away. :heart:

Just take a look at Lone Onigiri gonnafly.deviantart.com/art/Lo…
or Weeping Onigiri Stationary gonnafly.deviantart.com/art/We…

What is your worst art memory?

Fri Oct 26, 2007, 3:41 PM
I will tell you mine.
It was during a small art-class in 2005 (I was actually taking a 3D course but we had a few art-classes too, but I only stayed for 6 months) and I was just doodling away. I had this very obnoxious girl in my class, who thought she was all that and so on and so forth. She had a very different style from mine and she drew her characters with a few simple lines in like 20 seconds and she was done. Very impressive. :)
I however, go about my drawing differently.

I don't know what was her problem, if she was annoyed with me for staying too long on the pic or if she wanted to teach me, in some awful way, but...

What happened was - she drew on my picture. No, seriously.

I always sketch and write with the paper in a weird angle, so I might not see my mistakes at the beginning. But, I wasn't finished. That didn't seem to matter to her though, she simply took command though no one asked her, told me it looked wrong, took the sheet of paper away from me and drew a "perfect line". Well, gee, thanks. :P

I don't know why I didn't yell at her, but I was so angry. I haven't forgiven her - not that I've seen her for like 2 years. :XD: Thank god...

Now what's your story? :)

No kiri - again

Wed Oct 24, 2007, 11:49 AM
I've gotten 5000+ hits. Woo.
Nobody cares enough for me to make a kiri.
Screw this.
So much for wanting to draw something nice for someone.

(No, you can't get a kiri now. It's too late.)

Kiriban-time!

Sun Oct 21, 2007, 12:08 PM
So, I'm actually drawing closer to 5000 hits.

Here are the rules for winning the Kiri.
-You need to take a screenshot of you actually hitting 5000 on my page.
-Post a comment and a link to the screenshot in this journal.
-If no one claims the 5000 mark (:() then the person closest (5001 for example) may claim the kiri.

So, what can you request that I do? Well, I wish I was that good an artist that I could say "anything". Sadly, this is not the reality. I draw anime style and that's it. If you don't like it I'm sorry. I can do fanarts to some extent, but not everything.

Well, I sure hope I get to do a kiri, despite these rules. :)

-----

Sadly, not enough people replied to my Feature-journal, but at least 5 nice people got to be featured. :D I'll do it again sometime, and any Deviant can apply. :) But for now let's focus on the Kiriban. ;)

Sounds like fun, no?

Why strive to be popular?

I've turned some of my old works into scraps. I just don't want them taking up the space in my gallery. :disbelief: I guess I should delete some images from scraps too, some are just plain awful... T_T
At the same time, I've been going through some early works, that still strike a chord with me. But, maybe I shouldn't be cluttering my gallery with pics like those either...

Every time I log into DA, I remember "the good old days".  I remember when there were no more than around 8 million pics here and I remember when it turned to 9. Now the ticker is ticking more quickly. I almost feel like there is no room for me here.

It's always great to get comments, pageviews and perhaps even a fav or two, don't you agree? I always hope that the images I post will at least peak the curiosity of a few people. Despite my best efforts, that doesn't seem to be the case. But, I do thank my watchers for actually showing that they watch me. Thank you all who have commented and faved in the past weeks. You know who you are.

It feels kinds sucky, to really work hard on a pic, see yourself develop and then just disappear in the crowd. But, what do I expect anyways? I know my drawings are not perfect in any way, but yeah... I try to improve, I really do. I will never ever become as good as some of the artists here, but I have my own style, so I'll do my best in developing that.

Still, about pageviews etc. I don't feel like using adcast, ugh. My goal is, to reach 5000 pageviews by the end of this year. (Seeing as I only get like 2 views a day, I think that's a fair goal.)

To get views you need to draw. I am in some sort of Harry Potter-craze right now, and I really wanna draw a fan art. I tried to doodle something today, but I'm just too distracted. I need to develop an image in my head, think about it some, before I start drawing. So, hopefully there will be a Potter-image in my gallery not too far from now. :)

Yes, the third pic of my "born"-series has been added. Damn. I'm wondering if I should make it my favorite deviation... Cause I do like it. *ponders*

Feels so good to be drawing again. I had almost forgotten the joy it gives me.
