Thank you all so, so much for the Birthday wishes yesterday! I assure you, they didn't go unappreciated. While I didnt get to do anything for my Birthday yesterday. I was pretty much sat in my house on my own all day. I'm not going to lie, it got very dull and lonely. But, on Saturday, I'll be visiting my parents and staying over theres for the night. We'll have a Chinese takeaway feast and hopefully, a red velvet birthday cake.
Drew this marvellous picture and speed paint video as a birthday present for me. drew this wonderful picture and speed-paint video for me as a present. She's drawn many others for me on my previous Birthdays. Be sure to check-out her Youtube and her DeviantArt.
From Previous Years:
I very recently went down London for the Easter Holiday, visiting family. While I was there, I was finally able to get myself to Holland Park, to get up-close to it's Peafowl. I managed to get some pictures and recorded some footage of them. I plan to make a video explaining the full thing in the not-too-distant future. You can also find out a fun little purchase I made while visiting my official Facebook page.
For those of you who might have missed. I recently won an art contest hosted by one of my favourite Youtube critics, Jambareeqi . You can find more information on my Facebook and in the link to my entry picture:
I've been doing a lot of thinking and I've decided I want to try and set-up my commissions business again. I'd previously tried last year to open myself up to take paid commissions for my art. However due to family stress and that I couldn't receive government funding (because they couldn't see this making any money) I guess I was just knocked-back for a six. Now, I'm determined to try again. I want to do this! One, because I want to get more art done and offer-up my services. I want to feel pride that I'm finally using my skills to earn ('Cos living on the breadline isn't exactly fun, I can tell you that now). Even though I am working part-time for my mother's Equestrian sales company and also doing the immense amount of work for my Graphic novel; I'm currently getting started on the business side of things to set things up, along with a few pictures I have in mind to draw and upload. Recently, my artwork has been improving massively. To the point where now I can finally say that I'm confident in my abilities and it's now good enough for me to take it further. Really channeling my inner-Rarity, darling. For now, it's time to put my nose to the grindstone and get to work! Be sure to stay tuned for further updates.
‘Certainly had a late one, last night! I was up to 3:00am finishing a piece of concept art. This being the aforementioned character redesign. Drawing the patterns of and applying them to different segments of her Saree and Pallu proved quite laborious. I'll tell you, I needed quite the large coffee when I finally woke-up this mor- afternoon. Luckily the end-result has proved worth it!
It’s a shame I can’t show it yet, as I’m keeping a lot of things under wraps in the pre-production stage. Say for a select group of friends. I’m pretty chuffed at the two-year difference between my first picture of her and this new one. Makes me feel confident that I’m finally getting to the skill-level I want to with my art, after putting my nose to the grindstone so many times - and this is coming from someone who usually has the confidence of a cat doing watersports.
