It's been eight thousand years, how is everyone doing? Do you remember the last journal entry I posted asking to practice with your ref sheets and how I didn't post any? Turns out I actually drew like five portraits within a month or two of that journal and I was unhappy with every single one yayyahahh. But I DID DRAW THEM.

For now, I'm painting a lineart I started working on quite a while ago if anyone wants to come in and see me fail at it. :'D

I hope you guys are doing well. c:
Howdy ho neighbors! IT'S REQUEST-ISH TIME,

How is everyone doing? I know I'm not active on here anymore, I only work on art a handful of times throughout the year but I dearly miss it. I'm trying to sketch more to help with some issues I'm going through right now. I have a painting I'm working on but who knows when/if that'll ever get finished. Annnyway! The point of this journal!

If ya'll could link me to your DRAGON reference sheets I want to try sketching out some busts like my most recent post. I need more variety because I feel like it's cheating to just draw my own characters. c; Please, dragons only, they are my faves. These are NOT promised requests, it will just give me an opportunity to sketch again. Linking me to your ref sheet in no way means I will actually be drawing said character, so please do not expect it and ask for it to be completed. I will, however, try my best to get multiple bust sketches done. Thank you everyone and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

-Lisa

I haven't done this in so long. I couldn't get Livestream to work anymore, either, so back to Ustream it is! I'm coloring a lineart made by the awesome Syvaender!

Painting here!

How's it going, everyone? It's been forever, I miss you guys. I hope everyone is doing well.

I'm in a spot where I could use a bit extra cash and I greatly miss working on art on a regular basis, so I decided to try and offer some commissions. I'm not sure how well this is going to go, but why not try?!

Offering up some portrait/bust commissions and sketch commissions.

I don't have many recent examples, but here is my commission gallery of portraits and sketches and linearts that I've done for you guys to browse through: vtforpedro.deviantart.com/gall…

Prices for portraits: $15 - $30 depending on character.
Prices for sketches: $10 for bust, $15 and up for more than a bust, also depending on character complexity.

Will draw: Creature-like characters. Draguns.
Won't draw: NSFW, humans, armor, or any backgrounds and the like with these.
Paypal is my only accepted form of payment. Please contact me via note or email at: afigcmest@hotmail.com

HEY YOU GUYS!

Wow, it's been over two months since I last updated. Life is, um... crazy right now. Everything has changed!

Including the fact that I have 1200 messages on here. I haven't checked anything in two weeks. x: lol

So. Let's see. I went through an incredibly hard May - early July. Life wasn't what I wanted it to be anymore and I felt like I was going to lose it and jump off a bridge or something. lol It wasn't fun and I'm so glad that's behind me now, for the most part.

I met someone and he's just so amazing. He's made me happier than I've been in probably a year and we've only been dating slightly less than a month!! It feels like a lot longer, but these past few weeks have been insaaaane. They've felt like a years worth of time and yet have gone by fairly quickly.

I left my job at the end of June, thank goodness. It was miserable there and I just couldn't do it anymore. So I had about a month off and then I started my GED classes two days ago! Eeee, you guys, I'm so happy this is in the making now. I will seriously be so excited to get this done and continue forward with my life. College and a career and then perhaps I'll start thinking about a family of some kind. Who knows?

I'm going to start looking for a job once my classes really get into gear so I know how much I can handle. I'll just do a part time retail job to help pay for gas and some bills and not worry about something more until I'm really into college. I don't mind taking a few years to get to where I want - I want to be happy during it and not totally overwhelmed!

I'm going to keep on being busy for a while and I don't know when I'll ever get back into art. I don't have time right now, but I don't have that passion for it anymore and that really sucks, because I still owe things. I'm not sure what to do about that... any ideas? D:

I mentioned I was getting a six week old kitten in my last journal... well, we got two. And they're already over three months old now. Craziness. They're ridiculously adorable and fun and also annoying. I love them. <3

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES WAS AMAZING I WANT TO SEE IT FOR A THIRD TIME UGH I'M ALSO REALLY CRAVING POPCORN.

Iluguys. <3

Well! It's been a month and a half since I updated my journal, so UPDATE.

Lots of stuff is happening in my life right now. Lots of stressful stuff. It started back at the beginning of April and it's probably going to keep going through the end of the year. :C I'm not looking forward to it.

The trip to Chicago to see my brother's graduation from Navy boot camp went REALLY well. c: And while we were there, the high was 52 while the high in Arizona was, ya know, 102. xD Did not miss it. But now I'll be dealing with 112 for the rest of the summer... urgh.

I'm kinda depressed in a way I haven't been in a long time. I met someone I thought might be "the one" kind of thing and it turned out he wasn't. Right now I'm just in that period of accepting everything I thought was so wonderful and awesome never actually was and never will be. It's hard as hell and hurts more than anything I've ever quite experienced. Don't think I'll ever be able to trust a guy again... so far, the guys I've dated have all screwed me over in some way. It sucks when you think "this one will be different" and he turns out to be the worst one of them all. lol

While this is happening, my job has been sucking more and more. I honestly hate it. Well, okay, I love my job. I love being the only employee and being the only person working during a day. But I get little to no hours sometimes and my boss is just... he drives me crazy. :/ He's very unfair, but I can't complain too much I guess. So, right now, I'm job hunting.

I'm hoping within the next few weeks I can secure some kind of part time job. I want to quit my other job as soon as I secure a new one. Then I want to get into the swing of things with THAT job before the second week of July, when I'm going to have another part time job - classes!!

I'll be starting GED classes in July and I'm excited. I'm also nervous as hell, though, because I haven't done any schooling in so long, I can only imagine how far behind I am. I know it'll be a few months, at the very least, but then I'll have it and never have to worry about it again.

Then... hopefully college. So I can get my life back on track, earn some good money, get my own home and be happy. :'D Going to take quite a few years considering I want to get a PhD in Psychology, but HEY, why not. I only live the one life, right? xD Better do what I want in it.

I do miss art a hell of a lot, but I'm not sure I'll ever really be able to do it myself again. I don't feel that passion anymore, but I still love being here on dA and seeing everyone else's art. I love you guys and I totally miss chatting with all of you!!

I hope life is going well for everyone. c: Take care!!

p.s. I have one thing to really look forward to in the next week or so. I'M GETTING A SIX WEEK OLD KITTEN. YES. I will have pictures.

Kiriban coming up! C:

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 17, 2012, 2:42 PM




Journal


Edit:

Alright so that went by a bit quicker than I thought and I'm now at 99,400 pretty much. xD 99,999 or 100,000, get it! But like I said below, I'm not promising anything for it, though I may be able to do a sketch of some sort. I draw dragons mostly, so... yes!! Good luck! c: Comment or send me a note if ya get it, thanks.

/edit

Wow, I haven't made a journal since late November. Hey everyone! How's it going?

Life has been... meh. You know. It goes. c: Nothing horrible has happened, at least!

My brother moved back home in September and he's officially leaving next Tuesday for Illinois for basic training at the Navy boot camp there. Cross your fingers for him, though I know he'll kick butt. He's going to be the oldest guy there, so they'll probably make him some marching leader or something. xD He fits the leader role, at least!! Hah. I'm proud of my sailor brother.

Other than that, I turned 21 in January and... well. Not much else happening! I'm not working on any art because I have no spark for it anymore and I don't know if it'll come back. :/ Here's to hoping it will.

Anyway, I hope you guys are all well. Just as a heads up, my 100,000 kiriban will be here in the next... let's say, two months, lolol. It's a little over 98,000, but it took a while to get there!

I AM MAKING NO PROMISES OF ART FOR IT. But I'll do something, probably. Even if it's just a bust sketch, it'll be something. Soo good luck! I'll post another journal warning about it when it's ~500 pgvs away.

Take care everyone. <3 <3 <3

Christmas Wishlist|Lots of other wishlists added!

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 28, 2011, 11:57 AM




Journal


One of those Christmas Wishlist thingamajigs! C: I normally do one, so here we go. Make sure to link me to yours, too, so I can advertise it for ya!!

Post 10 (or more if you want more things for Christmas!) things that you'd like from family or your fellow deviants this year. It helps if they're things you absolutely want. If it's just one BIG thing you want this year, that's perfectly fine!

If ye want real life things, be sure to leave some form of contact info, whether it'd be address or just an email for privacy sake!

Then leave a comment on a wisher's journal somewhere so others can find your list! If you want to be especially generous - list the people who commented on your journal so they can get even more notice!

Finally browse around other people's lists, and if you see a wish you know you can grant, help make a person's Christmas become brighter and happier this year! You don't have to spend money to fulfill a wish! It's not to make someone feel put-out with an inexpensive gift, but to give everyone a chance to feel like a holiday-elf (figuratively or literally!).You can give the gift anonymously or not.

No rules, no guarantees, and no strings attached with this project. Just make a wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

MY LIST.

1. I wish for everyone to have an amazing and safe Christmas and if you don't celebrate it, just have a great end of the year!

2. I wish for my family members and friends to stay healthy, happy, and whole. Love you all.

3. I desperately want a commission from :iconteggy: of her lovely sketch dump commissions of... ANY of my characters. D: D:

4. Of course I'll never say no to art from anyone, I cherish every piece of my characters I can get. c: In this folder: vtforpedro.deviantart.com/favo… you'll find all of my characters, Daenonin, Rainn, Darwin, Nox, Johnny Cash (horse ref!), Bello Bello (another horse ref!), Sunburst, Kaito, Sole, and a nameless storm dragon. All of the pictures are from others and are all so very beautiful. :'D

5. I NEED NEW HEADPHONES. But I think my mom is on top of that one!

6. I wish for my pets to stay healthy and happy, as well, and for my dog who I just lost, to be happily remembered for the rest of our time.

7. A new Macbook Pro computer, tricked out. C:

8. To be able to reach my weight goal and maintain it, as well as my overall health. Almost there!

9. A whole new wardrobe. I need new of everything. I love Hot Topic, but also places like Kohl's. xD Shirts from things like Kingdom Hearts, Harry Potter, A Song of Ice and Fire series (aka Game of Thrones), Chris Nolan's Batman series, etc. etc. Also anything just kind of cute and... modern.

10. Any little trinkets from any of those would be awesome, too. Also I'm a big Elvis, Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra fan. >_> I'll take used and broken stuff if it's related to any of these things, of course! And anything GIRAFFE RELATED. Yesss, anything at all. Note me for an address!

I have such a boring list!! Yikes. xD

Hey everyone!!

I really meant for September to be a productive month in art. And then my brother unexpectedly and QUICKLY moved back home from Iowa. It's kind of been nonstop since then and when it's finally time to relax, I'm too tired to do any art or any...thing. Rofl. I'm so sorry for people expecting art from me!! Whiro, I need to show you that skeeetch. And I will finish my trade ASAP. |: I know I owe others some stuff, too. I need to post a finished image. x.x Life should slow down a bit now.

In other news, um... there really isn't any other news!! Does anyone else play DragonVale on their phone or other device? I'm somewhat obsessed. Dragons.

Annnyway, just trying to get through the rest of this year. I've been working on something for a couple months now. ;D It's kind of big and I'm about halfway there, so I'll be super happy to let you guys know how it went in a couple months!! Preferably less. It keeps me kind of busy, too, but it's totally worth it.

Nothing else going on here, so I'ma shut up. Love you guys, hope to post soon! c:

Whoa, it's been over a month since I posted a journal. What is this.

Anyway! How are you guys?! I've missed being active on dA... and I also feel like a total asswipe for not working on art I owe. I haven't touched my tablet in almost a month, as well. I really need to finish my kiriban (it's like 75% done, why can't I finish it :c) and then work on my TRADE. That I so desperately need to get done and goddamn it, I'm going to finish it. |: I will work on art later in the evening and tomorrow and I will try to finish the kiri and at least one half of the trade. ||||: Wish me luck!

Then maybe I'll try to take small commissions, especially over on FA. I doubt that'll work out, but hey, why not. xD

A comic book store opened next to where I work! It makes me so happy and then I feel so nerdy, but idgaf. I ordered two shirts from there yesterday because apparently all the ones in my size are gone. One is on backorder, so I hope I can get it! It's a green BAZINGA shirt, lololol. The other is a Ghostbusters shirt. <3<3<3

Noooothing much has been going on here, though! I've been pretty productive with -one- thing in my life, but I shall mention that in November if it pans out as well as I'm hoping it to. It's been awesome so far, but November is the big month. Otherwise, it's just been working a bit and bird feeding and...

READING READING READING.

Hollllly shit, if you haven't read the A Song of Ice and Fire series, do it noooow. I'm totally not obsessed at all DO IT. Game of Thrones is the HBO show - the first novel is called Game of Thrones, but the show will remain that title, obviously. xD It's a FANTASTIC show, too, and I'm super excited for the second season. April, come faster, plz. I'd be posting spoilers all over the place, but I won't do that to you guys. But... don't you DARE look up anything on google because you will massively spoil yourself repeatedly if you do. Like me. |: JHC, I was just trying to look up some gifs.

Currently there are five (or six, depending on where you live) novels out in the series and I'm about 225 pages into the fourth. It's taking me forever to read it for multiple reasons, but I got through the first 3000 pages rather quickly. Yes, each book in paperback is about 1000+ pages. Yes. |:

Aaanyway, if you like dark fantasy novels, read 'em. And be prepared for the best books ever.

How have you guys been? Working, schooling, couching? :'D Tell me stories!

~Lisa

Heeey everyone, how's it going?! Long time no talk, really. c: I just thought I'd check in and... you know what, I don't even know what this is about.

So how about that Livejournal downtime?! >:[ I want to see my LJ, damnit.

Anyway, I saw Captain America yesterday and I loooved it. I thought they did a really good job and... well, I'm biased, because I absolutely adore Hugo Weaving. Is there anything that man can't do? JHC, Lord Elrond is fantastic. I loved the little seams they put on his head near his ears just like it WAS a mask, haha. Oh, and The Avengers trailer. Just... I'm so psyched. I can't wait until next year. :/ Avengers, Batman, THE HOBBIT!! /flail

I've seen a lot of movies this summer, it feels like old times... last summer, I was so behind on everything. :'c I think I've seen... Thor, Kung Fu Panda 2, Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides, Super 8, X-Men First Class, Transformers Dark of the Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and now Captain America. I think that's all since May? Not in that order. >_> Hopefully I'm gonna see Cowboys and Aliens soon, too. I don't know what all that hate is about, but I think it looks awesome. :c

Art wise, I've been very slow and... okay, not doing anything. I whipped out that one ref in about five hours, but that's all I've done in a while. I really want to color this landscape thing, but I doubt that'll ever happen. And I reallllllyyy want to take refined sketch/loose lineart commissions, but I'm not sure how well they'd do. Anyone interested? Maybe one or two commissions at a time, I donno. I guess I'll give this as an example, though it's a boring ref pose:

Thanks to :iconskysealer: for making that watermark for me, as well. C:

Well, I think that's it for now! Have you guys been up to anything this summer?

Design Smaug: Contest Winners!

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 7, 2011, 1:37 PM




Journal


Contest: Design The Great Dragon Smaug! The contest, as well as all the entries, can be viewed HERE: vtforpedro.deviantart.com/jour…

First Place:

Smaug by HaanPere by :iconhaanpere:

I LOVE this entry. I immediately fell in love with it, actually. It is such a unique representation of Smaug and I feel it fits him perfectly. He's got the grumpy, "old man" look, but he also looks like he could be MIGHTY fierce if his treasure were disturbed. He's even got mean old man bushy eyebrows. I think Tolkien would be pleased with this entry. C: Thanks so much for entering! You have won a ONE YEAR subscription!


Second Place:

by :iconvaratera:

This entry is fabulous. Look at that pose! He looks so arrogant and confident, laying on his treasure, thinking absolutely no one can touch it. I really love the "classic" dragon style here, it represents him very well. Especially that shiny belly of gold and jewels. Thanks so much for entering! You have won a three month subscription!

Third Place:

Smaug by Dostor by :icondostor:

Third place was particularly hard for me to choose. In the end, I chose this piece, as I really love that classic interpretation of Smaug. The elongated snout, the beard, and the way he is clutching at his gold especially stood out. Old, angry, confident, watchful... perfect! Thanks so much for entering! You have won a gallery feature!

And to the rest of you! You all made it SO hard to choose winners. Not even kidding, they were all so amazing and well done, I had to sit on this multiple times over the past few days. I'm going to give you ALL a gallery feature, on top of Dostor's. I will feature Dostor on my profile (along with the journal feature) and you all in a big journal entry in just a couple days. C: I hope that you all had fun, I know I certainly did! Thank you all so very much for entering my contest. c:

Winners of subscriptions! Please let me know if you for sure want the subs. I know some people donate them - totally up to you guys!

p.s.

A HUGE shout out to the always awesome :iconskysealer: for editing my CSS for me and allowing me to finally have journal titles again! XD Thanks, SkySky!!

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 4, 2011, 2:40 PM

Hey everyone! The contest has officially ended. It's on my main "journal" tab or profile tab, if you want to check out the AMAZING entries. I'm so excited, guys, you have no idea. I hope everyone had fun with it! I'll be choosing a winner on either the 6th or the 7th.

I have to admit, I feel bad for the near daily spam, but I'm glad it brought the contest to people's attention. FORGIVE ME GUISE.

So. Happy 4th of July to everyone! Or happy Monday, either way. I hope you all are safe and sound and enjoy tonight. Be smart, please. <3 I'm not doing anything myself, except maybe setting off a few small things with my mom, like poppers and sparklers. xD; The neighbors will take care of the huge stuff, if last night has anything to say about it. Yeeeah, setting off fireworks with hard wind, lightning, and rain happening! Yeeeeah! YEEAH! I was hiding under the couch, all cat like. :/

Otherwise, things have been meh still. My boss likes to keep work at 87/88 degrees. It's about 90+ at the front of the store. You guys have no idea how much this makes me rage. Customers keep complaining to me. D: They come in from 112 degree weather to 90 degree? What. I. Don't. Even.

I've been so sad lately and I know exactly why, but I can't seem to drag myself out of this funk. I feel like I wasted eight years of my life for no reason and that I'm being laughed at about it or something. I don't understand how someone can screw with you for eight years and obviously not feel bad about it. Eight. Years. Unbelievable. It's not a good feeling. I just wish I could be -completely- happy, but I'm lonely right now. Bah. If any of you are down, I feel ya, and I love ya. <3 Stay out of the heat, because I think that's what's keeping me down. -shakes fist at sun-

Aaaanyway, I FINALLY FINISHED RETURN OF THE KING. It took me forever, but I am officially done and uuuugh, those books. Uuugh, Tolkien, my soul is YOURS. Also LotR trilogy on BLU-RAY WITH FANCY CHESS PIECES INCLUDED. D: SO. SO. AWESOME.

Go to thenoblecollection.com and fangirl/boy like me. c:

Take care errybody!!
