Written Art How-To's

1. How to Critique, and Receive a Critique…

2. (How to) Create your own Human Reference! (w/examples)…

I'm considering making a speedpainting video along with me singing one of my favorite songs. My question is, should I sing it in English or Japanese? 

4 deviants said Both! Cuz we know you're crazy awesome like that!
3 deviants said I dont care. Do whatever. :P
2 deviants said English! Cuz I wanna know what you're saying!
1 deviant said Japanese! Cuz Japanese sounds coooooool!
No deviants said Neither! Just make pretty art!
No deviants said What about those watercolor tutorials I'm waiting for?!


Hey all!

Sorry about the delay in updating. I've been busy with work, and getting the outside part of my home ready for winter. Which requires alot of de-weeding (prevents seeds from being planted), and mowing till the blessed day of a hard-enough-frost-to-kill-off-everything-that-is-green comes. In all honesty I detest gardening/yardwork. with. a. passion. Unfortunately it has to be done, despite how tiresome it can be. It's probably worse since I live out in the country. More grass to mow, more weeds to pull....and more craziness to deal with.

Recently one of our barn kitties got hurt. I found him limping in one of the outbuildings, and realized he has two injured legs (one in the front, one in the back).  Since he isnt our cat, and we dont have money to take him to the vet,  I took him inside one of the locked outbuildings to be safe from a wandering tom cat that likes to attack him, and put him in a cardboard box (with food, water, litterbox, and enough room to cuddle/rest). So far he's getting fed twice a day, litter changed about as often, and new (but stained T-shirt as) bedding everyday.

The same day I found the cat, I stopped by my neighbors house (the cat isnt theirs either, but they have also seen it wandering from farm to farm). I mentioned to her where the cat was and how he was doing. But what surprised me was the next VERY important tidbit to the story: Apparently a couple of days ago my neighbor and her daughter were starting a truck that they dont use that often. When she started the truck, she heard a horrible cat shriek/meow and quickly turned the engine off to afraid to look inside (for fear of finding a now dead animal in her engine). It's assumed that the cat I found hurt, is the same cat that climbed into the engine of the truck. Whats also sad, is that I found the cat maybe 500-1000 yards away from where the accident took place (he must have hobbled to get to where I found him). :(

On the positive side, the cat is doing okay...but it's too soon to tell if he'll make it. He's eating, drinking, and purring like crazy (not to mention he lets me pick him up, and he HATES it when I pick him up), so hopefully he'll get better. :) But he is BY FAR, the dumbest cat I've ever come across. Baka neko to the max. lol.

Art wise, I'm feeling rather burnt out. I have been working on the last 3 drawings of my senshi project (yup theres 3 more!) and then it's the end of the sailor moon fanart.....for now. As much as it has been fun drawing lots of fanart and sticking to this extremely LONG project, I do need to do my own work and focus on a different direction *coughcomicscough*. Granted, this project was a great warm up for long term projects!  :) I now know that I can stick with a project to the end, and wont give up in the middle. ;P One of the 3 drawings that are left is a family portrait of Neo queen Serenity, King Endymion, and baby Small Lady Serenity in front of Serenity's castle in the tallest spire of Crystal Tokyo (betcha forgot it was there didntcha?)). The other 2 drawings are a SURPRIIIIISE. Cuz we all know deep down inside we love surprises (despite waiting for them drives us nuuuuts)! :D

In addition to, but slightly off topic: I realized as I was going through my watercolor sketchbook the other day that I'm 5 pages from completely filling up my WHOLE sketchbook (there are still pages of drawings that I intend to color but still havent gotten to). HOLY CARP I'VE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE!!! Plus I started this sketchbook in May, so to fill it up with all colorful drawings/paintings is an achievement in itself! :D

Anyway I hope everyone is doing well, and to stay tuned for the next round of pictures, fanart and original!


P.S. MUSIC TIME! (also running out of songs to share, so I'm pulling some of these from my dark and distant past!)

(song below is to the tune: You Raise Me Up)

  • Listening to: You Raise Me Up

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. :)
