Hey there <3
Another three months of in-activeness have passed here on DA, wheehoo! My last drawn&uploaded drawing was back in august 2013... which makes me inactive for more than a year! LeGasp! D8
But I still plan to do something about that, since I think it's a friggin' shame that I don't draw and upload things here anymore. The ideas are all in my head, but the time often isn't there. Which is exactly why I want my Summer back, since I spent the whole 'holiday' working on my fieldwork report, which is the size of a Thesis! Ack! D8 We finally handed it in this week, but now my courses have already started for a month, so I'm still busy with deadlines and exams (in two days), LeSigh -__-
So I'm making new plans and lists for this year, and I hope this time I'll get some art finished!List of planned art
(Commissions not included)
- A fire beast for queenofeagles 's Egg Hatching Contest!
- Fan-Art based on Doctor Quinn, Archie Sonic the Hedgehog and The Hobbit,
- Small comics, which have been in my head for 8 years, about a boy with a magic pencil,
- Dwarves, dwarves, more dwarves! I miss my dwarves D8
- Raserga, my new adopted werefox character <3
- And a lot of steampunk themed art that has been inside my head for 5 years now.
New characters! 8D
- Book trailer for "Magnetar" by Mara van Ness,
- DnD character "Melanas" art for friend
- Garfield poster for friend
- Illustrations for book
I adopted a character for the first time in my life, and while Paypal was being a bitch about it, I can now finally welcome the character Raserga
to the family! <3 I still have to draw her myself, but this is her:
Other new characters will follow in this list, related to a steampunk universe that has been in my head for 5 years :3 I'm planning to work that out a bit more. And some more information about my Spain Fieldwork, for those interested
I know DA isn't a site where I should post anything about my life/study/etc, but I always think it's nice to read more about artists' lives, and what they actually do next to drawing, and what inspires them
My biggest inspirations often come from my fieldworks, which I often have since I'm a geology student. Just before the summer vacation (May) I mentioned I was going on fieldwork again to South-Spain, which was my Master's Fieldwork, and man it was amazing. All fieldworks so far have been amazing, but this one had the least trouble of them all and was even relaxing at some points. I mean, we stayed with a group in a real villa
after all, complete with huge swimming pool, horse grounds, on top of a hill looking out over a canyon and town... You understand my point. The fieldwork area was in the middle of beautiful mountains, and we had a bus (whooooh, driving a friggin' huge bus by myself 8D) which we would drive over crazy dangerous roads to the top of those mountains, from which we could see the sea! And man, I've never seen such a blue sea before. So in this area we had to do research for a whole month :3 This means, we had to find the history of the local area and regional area by studying rocks, their deformation structures and metamorphic structures. It may sound dull, but it was very interesting!
So now I'm back, my summer vacation wasted on working on the fieldwork report (thesis size), and busy with university again xD It never stops...
And also, thank you for all your kind messages back in May/June, you're all the bestests!!
