I want to start off by apologizing if I rarely ever post, as it takes some getting used to. If you find my Livejournal (or check the side links), you can see that it’s the most updated. I admit I spend too much time on the Internet, but I don’t post a zillion things, nor can I can get into the reblogging process too much. I’m sorry! ^^;
This art blog was in the making for some time, although I never had
the guts to really sit down and showcase my work around. I used to
present some graphic design work back on DeviantArt, but I wasn’t too
fond of it. I may start one soon, although I find this being a little
more personal. My friends have inspired me to start organizing my
doodles into something fun and able to be enjoyed by other fans.
I do like using this as a free-talk corner and a place to showcase my
artwork at various ranges and mediums. I have some experience and am
attending the university for even more. My skills range from traditional
artwork, using Copics, Prismacolors, and attended college previously
where I learned fashion sketching and illustrations. Now I’m attending
college for game design and illustration, and have a self-taught graphic
design background through high school and college.
Growing up, I drew anime-inspired art after pausing so many VHS’s and
trying to draw my favorite characters - Lord knows you can find some
chicken scratch Utenas around my old folders - and now they have
transitioned into concept artwork both through traditional and digital
illustrations. I’m learned in technical sketching as well (although it
takes a long time for me, admittedly!), and am also self-taught in
watercolors, oils, acrylics, and pastels. I do have a few sculptures
from a ceramics class as well, and some minor installations.
My most recent works have been working on some fan art whenever I’m
taking a break from some larger projects I have in the gaming world.
My other great passion is cosplay and costume design, which I got
into fully back in 2001 when I was a greenhorn barely having
transitioned from the single digits.
I love cosplaying a wide variety of characters, and when I attended
school for costume design, it inspired me to work harder. Most of of the
characters I cosplay are from various anime I love, mostly older ones,
and a large list from the vast number of visual novels I play and adore.
Only recently have I gotten the chance to compete, which have fared
well ~ our cosplay group is called Pants Your Goonies Cosplay, and
keeping it old school.
A lot of my costumes have personal meanings to me, as they each
provide a wonderful growing and challenging experience for me. I figured
it was time to put them in a great place where others can see my work
in progress and we all can share a mutual excitement for cosplay.
I look forward to sharing my work with everyone!
