Happy (Belated) New Year Everyone!

I'm sorry that I've been MIA lately. I'm still alive (wait...I think I'm still alive?), and drawing artz! It's just that I'm working on a particularly large project for atelierv (have another that is pending). The large one in particular os close-ish to stay tuned for that pictures debut. One by one the memory spheres steal my sanity. -___-;;

Also as a shoutout to all the lovelies who wished me Happy Birthday~ O MAI GOODNESS YOU GUYS ROCK! :3 You know exactly how to make a girl blush. XD A big thank you to...

....and I'm sorry it took me 10 days to respond. ;___;

This past Saturday a friend of mine gave me what is probably the best Birthday gift I've ever gotten...EVER. To be honest I'm pretty used to not getting what I want for any holiday/birthday so it's a HUGE surprise to get something I secretly pine for...but would probably buy it for myself when I've sold enough art or got a better paying job. Remember back in September I got a set of 18 Holbein watercolor paints? Well this friend got me a set of 60 Holbein watercolor paints. Call you tell I'm excited yet?

THEY ARE SOO BEAUTIFUL! I ALMOST CANT MAKE MYSELF USE THEM! THEY ARE SOOO PRISTINE AND BEAUTIFUL! MAI PRECIOUS~ Even though I can't use them RIGHT now because I'm working on a digital commission(s) I'm still daydreaming projects to use them for.

Which kinda goes into my Art New Years Goals:
  1. Focus on selling my artwork
    1. I kinda try to do this every year, but I get discouraged and give up. (surprise surprise)
    2. This year I have a plan. (Whoo hoo! A Plan!)
    3. In December of last year I talked/showed some of my artwork to a few people who go to my church. One of the people I talked to was interested in selling my artwork.... as long as it was rural scenery depicting farmland, country, or Amish lifestyle. So....Why not? I'll give it a try with 5-10 paintings/drawings and if I can make money that way, WIN.
  2. Enter Three Art Contests
    1. Why? Because year after year I enter two art contests and they are Anime Iowa related.
    2. so....AI can only count as ONE contest, Need to not stick too close to home all the time. Branch out!
    3. Diversify protfolio with not just Anime things, and think of both long, and short term projects to do...
  3. Finish previously started projects
    1. 30 page comic - specifically "Seventh Dragon Bride"
    2. Select digital paintings that were put on the back burner (Yep they exist as .psd files on my computer)
    3. The last Talented Princess picture. Jeeze, that project should have been done and over with already. Poor Haruka...

I think thats all I got for right now. XD My "New Years" resolutions are always weird. But we'll see how it goes.

Well....thats all folks! Till I post some art, thats all I gotta say!


P.S. Want some music to listen to? This is what I've found on Pandora/Youtube recently. XD Honestly I dont pay too much attention to the lyrics, I just like the sound of the song. :3

  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: Nijiiro Chouchou - Wagakki Band

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. :)
