hi everyone

so you might have noticed for the last quite a long time i've not really been submitting anything. the truth is i've been having a lot of trouble and hatred for my art and nothing i draw comes out how i like. i feel really limited and poor and like i can't do anything. i've been trying to work in new styles but it's not enough and i need to work harder. on top of this, i need to get A grades in all my exams this year or i can't do the uni course of my dreams, so i won't have a lot of spare time until then.

i'm going to keep trying to draw something every day (if you follow me elsewhere you'll see those drawings) but deviantart is losing a lot of its shine for me. i don't know if i should submit everything i do here, or just delete everything and submit maybe 1 or 2.

tl;dr my art is shit idk what im doing but ill do my best to find a style and way of drawing that doesnt make me want to quit drawing altogether

streaming! [off]

come and say hi!



hi everyone~

happy new year~ i hope you all had a good christmas! sorry i'm a bit late, i went to visit my partner for a week and he lives about 400-500 miles away, so i don't get to see him that often. it means i spend all my attention on him instead of the internet lol

2013 was both an awful and a fantastic year for me, so it sort of mellows out. the one good thing that happened to me manages to nullify all the awful things, so i'm feeling okay about it! i barely drew, though, which is really disappointing. i didn't progress far with my art, and i noticed my responses and general presence here has diminished a little. i'll be doing my best to bring it back up and push it futher!!!!

that's all i wanted to say really! let's do our best this coming year as artists!! and if you're not an artist, at something else hehe

thank you!

thank you everyone for all the billions of birthday wishes lajghlkdjfhlkdknhlgh i'm so happy ^^ i didn't get any random gifts this year but i'm honestly glad for that, i was very inactive this year due to exams and things so i feel it would be a little wasted on me...i'm working hard now, though! got a job and also getting more and more commissions. i'm actually working on a lil project but it's a secret for now! (unless you follow my twitter, then its less of a secret ok)

i'll be seeing you all again soon >w<

make DA understand that shitty emo idiotic 4edgy8u messages written in some god awful font on some god awful background in paint is not art and we don't fucking want to see it on our front page

EDIT: GREAT EXAMPLE OF BAD AWFUL FEELINGS / EXPERIENCES BEING VENTED INTO ART AND NOT MSPAINT ATROCITIES:

*back to exams*

annual exam hiatus woooo!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 29, 2013, 11:20 AM
hey everyone!!! it's my last year of college and if i don't get good grades i can't go to university and study japanese and essentially follow my dreams, so i'm saying goodbye to all my internet fun times until my last exam (mid-june.)

commissioners: don't worry i'll be saving my information across to my PC so i can work on your request after i log out!!

i'm sorry to everyone cause it's no fun when this happens but this is probably the most crucial point in my life so far. so if you complain you're basically a dick :P haha

i will probably not delete my tumblr as i will still be doodling here and there, so if you are still wanting to see whatever i draw make sure you're following me there (links to my everything on my page). twitter will still be going too. everywhere else i don't regular so no change there haha!

wish me luck!! gotta get my AAB grades!! (and at 6th form college in the UK, that's no mean feat!!)

bye bye! i love you all especially lots and lots and loads and huge amounts and loads!! :heart: :heart: see you in june!

god there are seriously some assholes on this site

does anyone follow the DA fb page???

//incoming art student rant

Red is red by MissUmlaut

www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi… basically on this picture, there are so many straight up nasty comments about how this isnt art and how it requires no talent and my jesus it just pisses me off!! they are all clearly from people whose artistic mindsets are stuck in the fucking 1800s where if you can't draw or paint or sculpt very well then you can't possibly be described as an ARTIST and you aren't CREATIVE and that you have NO TALENT. what the fuck is that? sorry, but WHO ARE YOU to tell ANYONE when and if they have talent or not?? just because you simply don't understand a piece of artwork and what it means and how it was created and WHY, that in no way means they have no talent. and you are a fucking bigoted asshole for saying something like that.

this piece is about simplicity and minimalism. it is simply supposed to represent the colour red in a simple yet identifiable manner, which is just what it does. sure, looking at it you can say "well yeah anyone can take a picture of some door or w/e the fuck that is" but you are MISSING THE POINT if that is what you have to say about this art. you are MISSING THE POINT if all you have to say is "wow look at all the blood, sweat and tears the "artist" poured in to create this piece /sarcasm" (legit comment i saw on fb srs wtf). it is supposed to question and debate all the other ways you see certain things being represented, often in very complex and subtle manners, by being incredibly simple and unsubtle.

right now in the US some very serious shit is going down in congress about marriage equality (wow i know the US is progressing socially???wat???ya im surprised too wtf). marriage equality has an official colour (makes things simple i guess) which is red, and deviantart brilliantly shared this piece to show its support for the cause. it's wonderful because not only does it so simply represent the idea of marriage equality through its extraordinarily simple nature of depicting red, but it also makes a double meaning of the concept of marriage equality itself --- as in, it should be as simple as this piece of art is. it is saying marriage equality is simple, the answer is simple, and i am showing this with this piece of simple art. and i think that is fantastic. it is intellectual, it is interesting, and it is innovative. and if you can't seem to understand why it is, then, quite frankly...go back to the 1800/1900s orz ///

RANT OVER

tl;dr ppl on deviantart are shallow backwards-minded people and can't learn to appreciate art outside of their fuckin comfort zones OMFG

It's my DA birthday today!

i'm not going on hiatus or anything like that but i have a lot of stuff going on with college and i REALLY want to go to uni.. so i am going to have to become a little bit dormant on here. i will still draw, and i will still upload stuff, but i will be browsing less and probably will only reply to comments if they are important or just notes.
i don't really want to do this, but...uni !!! i want you!! i need my AAB grades! so yes. i'm sorry!! :heart:

i am grateful for all the love and support and new watches lately, and hope that it will continue ^^~ thank you so much!!!

um...please draw one of my OCs how you think they would be on a date!!
Kiriko - ref by arisutanayame by arisutanAchika by arisutanfumie-chan v2 by arisutan

fumie would just totally not get it at all and would be clueless kawaii airhead...achika would be dying of embarrassment im sure... the other 2 im not sure yet!! methinks kiriko is some kind of tsundere.

please don't pair them with your own OC, if you want to pair them with someone pair them with nezumi/shion or tamaki from ouran or brief from PSG or the hitachiin twins IDK you can do whatever you want ww

if you prefer to draw guys... DRAW NEZUMI & SHION FOR ME!!!!!! AOPJDH'DKALHNDAJLGNADKJHN;JKDFKJNKNJ,FSJS

see you guys next week. have a good christmas!

xmas gifts on DA!

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 17, 2012, 9:23 AM
hi everyone!

i don`t know how to be a part of any secret santa stuff and i haven`t been invited to any, so i just want to make it clear that this is about personal gifts that i decided to do ^^

okay so this year there are a few people who i super love and am going to make christmas gifts for ^U^ there are 6 people over all, all of which i love in one way or another! i won`t be uploading them all at the same time, so if you think you`re one of those 6 (steady now XD) then..don`t feel bad or anything hehe

i-if you wanted to make a gift for me(i had a few questions from people about this) then ..seriously, i am so happy you are even THINKING about that. just draw me anything! i would be most happy with one of my OCs but really i would be so honoured with anything you drew me ^U^ (as long as you actually drew it FOR me, not something for yourself that you stick my name on hehe)

ok, happy christmas everyone!!!
