Got some new photos, not necessarily fantastic but something new nontheless.  I find I like taking pictures of waterways.  One of these days I need to take some pictures of Connoquenessing (My spell check tells me that is misspelled. Its kinda funny, since I googled the spelling to get it right in the first place...there are reasons why we give these rivers and creeks nicknames).  One thing I love about growing up where I did is that there are alot of waterways.  And trees, hence the name of the state(Pennsylvania translates to Penn's Woods. Penn being William Penn who got the charter, and Sylvnia is latin for woods.  or Forest Land if you go by Wiki's translation. But the point is that there was a Penn and a lot of trees).

My school is on the bank of the Monongahela River, which is one of the rivers that run north.  I was under the impression that its actually a rarity but that seems to be bad information.  The two photos I posted today were of that river.  I was at a cousin's wedding shower and since I love Rivers I took a few minutes to snap a few pictures of the water while I was there.  Unfortunitly I was in a rush (my battery was dying) and I didn't focus quite right.  Still, enjoy the photos.

I'm also going to try to get thank yous out to the 22 people who I have in my alerts who have added me to their favorites.  I've been keeping it there as a ego-boost, but realized I never let these people know I was thankful for their 'liking' of my artworks.

I'm going to try and get a bit more of a variety of artwork.  I love photography, but I've been neglecting my drawing muscles.

First off, thanks to Tenzinwoohooplz and Rozax who gave me Llama badges!


And Now an update on updates:

So I should be uploading some more photography soon.  Hopefully this weekend at least.  School ends in about 3 weeks, so after that I will (hopefully) start working on some of my drawing/writing projects.  I've got a few projects in mind, including some Hunger Games related stuff.

I am also considering taking prompts for both Fics (which really I always take) and artwork, but we shall see.

Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates the holiday.

Clearly I am a poor updater.  The last material I uploaded was from over two months ago.  Not sure how much of my new stuff I'll  be posting on here, but I'll try to do some work thats good to post here.  I know I have several outstanding projects I told you all about, and I shall try to complete them soon.

This entry is going to be a little short, as I'm in the middle of class right now (I know, I know.  I should be working.  But I needed a reset period before I work on my poster again).

I might be uploading some word creations (not sure what else to call it.) soon.  We shall see how things go with this poster.

Hello Everyone!

I'm going to open myself up to prompts/requests for art (within reason) for Decemeber as school ends in a few weeks.

I have several drawings to come but I need to take better pictures of them. My camera blurred them and I don't want to upload them until I get better copies.

Well, I've been updating more regularly with my drawings (as I go along in my human figure class), and will continue to do so.  I just uploaded two more drawings today, and I think a few just a few days ago.  

I have learned that while I hate fixative and it makes my house smell despite doing it OUTSIDE, It makes it easier to put in the portfolio.  Going to have to clean my portfolio and spray fixative on some of the drawings.

Spring break is next week, and I'm going to attempt to do some non-drawing art, like photography and maybe upload some of my typography posters.  Not sure yet.

And if I get all my homework done, perhaps  I'll work on that Harry Potter art that the poll appears to want.

Been working on putting together my portfolio for school, so the uploading has been slow, but I have stuff to upload.  Mostly drawings, but also some typography stuff and perhaps a few pictures.

I told you I'd eventually upload some art, didn't I?  Well, now I have.

I took pictures of the drawings I did for my drawing class and uploaded them.  My non-class drawings that I'm working on aren't included, so the Persephone drawing and the Evgeni Malkin (Forgive me if I misspelled his name) portrait aren't going to be posted for awhile.  The second one mostly because I can't find my source picture.

Today's Updates:

- Candle Still Life
- Bones & Bottles Still Life
- Candles Compositional sketch
- 1pt Perspective drawing
-

Coming up:

- Horse portrait
- Building drawing (2pt perspective)
- Persephone

Please note that its November, which is NANO month.  Which means less work will be done on non-class required work.

Well, I took a drawing class, and my teacher seems pleased with my work, so sometime next week look for some various drawings, in various states of completeness.

I might also put up some photography.  Who knows.  I'm feeling kinda confident about my stuff right now, which is a big change from last semester (its amazing what rejection can do).

As always, critiques are especially welcome, but comments of any time (except spam/flames) are wanted as well.

I went and bought a year membership.  And then proceeded to request critiques for pretty much everything I ever posted, even the crappy stuff they would probably be hard pressed to find anything good in.  This does however make me realize I really need to update the content of my gallery.  Either some photography or some more traditional art.

I have a few really ugly 3D designs I could upload...

Anyway, there will be art being done, and hopefully the critique will help improve what items of this clutter will make it to my RL portfolio.

And maybe one day I'll learn how to make skins and backgrounds.  I feel woefully uneducated in the ways of coding for someone who one day hopes to make her living by creating websites.

Well, on this day after my birthday, I decided to regain productivity, even if it meant uploading last months photos.  So I have an update of 3 photos of the snowstorm that hit the northeast in December as seen from my porch.

I hope by the end of the week to upload something other then pictures from the porch, including the rest of the painting studies.  Maybe a drawing or two if I could get myself to sit down and actually do something akin to work.

School picks up soon, and while I hope to continue updating, it might be harder.  Got no art classes this semester (Art history, regular History, Spanish and 3D-Design....wait, maybe 3D design will produce something).

I would also like to pause and thank the follow deviantart members who added one or two of my artwork to thier favorties/collections.

So, last we spoke I was in the midst of painting figural paintings.  Well, I'm finished now.  Although I'm not sure if I want to post those here or not. There are some really bad ones.  But if I can photograph them, I'll update with a few.  Till then, enjoy this photograph of a flower, which despite it being December, has decided its a perfect time to bloom.

Yes, that is right people.  I am updating and it isn't just pictures of my backyard!  I'm uploading shots of my paintings that I have been doing in painting class.  Not anywhere close to DiVinci or anything like that (More like something that will make you go "huh...is that a bike?  or a tree?")

So here is the series defs.

1. The Paintings of Doom
We are required for our final grade to have 10 figural studies done.  I will upload them as we do them (basically one per class).  So far there are four.  There may be more then ten, but I can only guarantee ten.

2. Other paintings
As well as the figural studies I have to turn in the following:

Still Life
Landscape
Marine scape
Urban Landscape
Figure (Nude)
Figure (clothed)

I shall upload as I get them done.  Maybe a few photos I've taken recently as well. Who knows.

I'm not very good at updating my journal here.  According to my history, my last entry was Apr 26, 09, which was what...four months ago?

Anyway, I don't have any updates for my account today (at least I don't think I do.  I'm cleaning my room and art area, so you never know what scraps I may find).  I do however have a list of projects i am currently working on.

Portrait Collection:

Penguin Players
Ewan McGregor

Fantasy Art:

Persephone, with a modern twist thanks to some Labyrinth fan art I have seen lately.  I got inspired.

And that would be the extent of my Spanish.

Anyhoo, I have updated!  Mostly point-and-shoot pictures, which I have learned I have trouble taking.  I'm so used to having the viewer that I find it harder to take good p&s digital pictures. Need to work on that.

Two major updates.  I'm going back to school for graphic design so I will be forced into being creative, so you might see more stuff.  but this summer I am planning some art.  Hopefully a few things I owe people as well.

So back to the pictures.  Got two of the view from my grandmother's apartment down the hill into the downtown area of her town.  And a picture of a Lion from her room.  And one of Sugar, the white cat who decided that we belonged to her now.

I'll be uploading pictures today to get some new content here.

Question for those who actually read this (which is like 2 I think), Should I offer any of my pics up for print status?  I've been thinking about it, if only to pay for a domain name for my website.

Lately, my artistic drive has been low.  I barely write, let alone actually do anything to put here.  And according to a thing off to the side as I type this I haven't even taken the time to update this journal since September of last year.

I was going to put up some fan art, but I got in trouble the last time I put up wallpapers so that will be a no.  My sister reclaimed her camera, so no more digital pictures, though I may upload some of my NY pictures from four years ago.

Agh.   Please come back creative Muse.  It would be nice to do something besides procrastinate on homework by reading fanfic.

gee...the moods are amusing actually.  I'm not quite as bad as I put down, but it was the closest to my feelings right now.

Some pictures!  Mostly of My grandma's plants and my backyard.  But I have 6 rolls of film at Walmart so I might have a bunch more this month. Now if only I could get the art bug and get my gift art done.

I really need to update this more. Life has been hectic both in the traditional sense and in the emotional sense these past couple of months.  My family situation is back to the troublesome state so I might be a little behind in everything.

Current and/or Planned Projects:

Sokorra Lewis entrence art
Series of Muse protriets
Portriet of my grandfather
2 Christmas related fan art
Series of Doctor Who fan art
Fanfic covers for my stories
Persephone Art

I think I may put some of my photography into the print section.  Not sure.   Everyone seems to enjoy it, and I could use some extra cash for art projects.  

I'm currently looking for a job to pay for school/other stuff too.

Well, its tea time and this year I have to present an actual portfolio in the lobby. *sigh*  I'm nervious and can't find all my stuff.  Plus I need to mat a bunch and of course there is the fact its last minute.

On the good news, I found some art I might be putting up here on the site.  We shall see.

Wish me luck:)
