Hey all!

Just a note to say that I'm still alive! Well...mostly. I had a pretty busy November that kinda prevented me from doing much art this month. :/ Technically November isnt over, but I doubt I'll go on a crazy creation spree the next 24 hours. XD

In recent news, I've joined the Christmas choir at church. I've always had a difficult time connecting with people at the different churches I've 'attended' over the years, so I thought trying something different would help me get out of my "hermit artist" safety net. Not to mention I REALLY want to learn alto, cuz singing the melody all the time is just no fun. :P  So far it's been a good way to get me out of my shell, talk to people, and actually make friends (huzzah! FRIENDS!). 

I've been getting encouraging compliments about the quality of my voice, which is nice, but I really dont know how to handle them. For some reason I DO NOT like the sound of my voice, and automatically assume it sounds bad to everyone else(especially when I accidentally skip back to soprano when I'm supposed to be alto). I'm still trying to do my best singing wise, and trying to stay less negative about myself. Yep...just another project thats a work in progress....

Actually I have been playing around with animation cuz I have a plot in mind. It's a great plot...but requires me learning new software. D: Heres my animation (it has some kinks, but for 2 hours worth of sketching it's actually pretty good): RotateBuuFaster

Speaking of Arting, I have a couple projects in progress for...
DivisionHappy   Star!Star!No StarNo StarNo Star  (inked, Ready for coloring)
atelierv           Star!No StarNo StarNo StarNo Star  (sketched)
Secret Santa      No StarNo StarNo StarNo StarNo Star  (not started)

Just letting you guys know so that you know that I haven't forgotten about you. ;)

I'm hoping that December will be my CHRISTMAS SPIRIT ART MOTIVATION MONTH! Meaning I have some projects I would kinda like to get done this year so I can start 2016 with a newish slate (I still have backburner projects waiting). :) I dunno, I can only hope! XD lol

I've discovered a new band to listen to as I work (both at my job and when I draw/paint). It's called, Wagakki Band. If you want to listen to something with traditional Japanese instruments with a little more of a band beat, you should definitely check this band out! My personal favorites are Nijiiro Chouchou (slowish) and SenbonZakura (Faster beat). Both are the youtube links below:

  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: Nijiiro Chouchou - Wagakki Band
  • Watching: Castle
  • Playing: Trivia Crack, Wordox, Candy Crush Soda
  • Drinking: Green Tea

Hi, I'm Joan. I like drawing things that are of the following: colorful, girls, and cute things. I also draw comics every now and then, as well as experiment with other mediums (animation, jewelry making, doll making, etc etc). ^_^

Anyway, this deviantart account has been spanning my artwork since 2005(ish), so if you go through my gallery you'll see the progression of how my drawing style has developed. :)

No problem! It's a very beautiful picture! Plus it looks like you were experimenting with bright colors which makes it really unique~ :3

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for Inktober! (I'm gonna participate too, so I'm in the middle of writing up a list of things I want to draw) >D
