Updates, Sickness, and Going Forth
As some of you know, I've been battling some mental health and physical health issues for the past year or so. Well, without going into too much detail, the past few months it's kept me bed ridden and up to the neck in late schoolwork. Needless to say, I have had no time for art; hardly even for communication with people, so my apologies!
It's Spring Break now, and I'm feeling much better. Some much needed sunshine and proper medication all working for me.
I'm going into an Advanced Digital Design class with my amazing art teacher this last term, so art will most certainly be happening!
Thank you all for your support of my art and understanding at my recent absence. I am certainly looking forward to getting back into the swig of things around here!
Commissions + France Fundraising - Wait List Open!I have the opportunity to go on a school trip to Southern France next summer. Unfortunately, my family can’t afford this trip so in order for me to go I have to raise the money all on my own.
UPDATE: I've officially signed up for the trip, but I still have a long way to go! This is the crucial money raising stage, so please keep those commissions coming!
I had my first visit to France with a school trip to Northern France in 8th grade, and I fell in love with the country. I decided to French in High School, and fell in love with the language as well. This trip will be a much broader and more imme

The Procrastinator A Day In The Life
Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before a deadline.
I wrote the title for this piece three weeks ago.
So, it’s Friday night. Work week over. Tomorrow I get to write my own mate
5 Literary Journals - Publish Your Writing
No More Excuses Submit Your Writing To These Journals
Many of us — especially writers — find ourselves buried beneath a growing pile of books we’ve been meaning to read but haven’t been able to find the time. More depressing is the even longer list of book titles we know we need to read. The pile gets higher, the list gets longer every day. There’s always another seminal classic we haven’t gotten around to. It

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

How to Commission an ArtistI've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there. One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate. Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists. The simple fact of the matter is that it happens.
However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to find instructions on it as, say, how to draw anime eyes. That's why I'm making this guide.
It should be noted that while I mention commissioning through other websites now and then, this is meant as to general guide, and all of the examples are from deviantart.com. Also, this does not
