Redolling 2007, Share Your Old Goods!

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 30, 2015, 11:36 AM
Its been a long time since I made a journal so I figured why not ramble a bit to get the almost year old journal put away lol. I had quite a bit of hiatus but I am starting to get back into art a little at a time. This time around I'm trying to focus on both pixel and digital art. Right now I'm working on a redoll which should be interesting because I'm redolling something from 2007. Which looks like this:
Hand15636 by Rythea Omg by Rythea
Honestly I'm a little embarrassed. I was so very proud of this back when I made it and now that I've progressed so much I can see so many flaws. Especially that flat forehead lol. I'm also sad that I hardly made her tan at all. I didn't quite understand changing palettes for skin back then. Anyways~
It's been a while since I've actually pixeled however I think I'm up to the task. I've learned alot while dabbling in digital art that I think I can use for pixeling too<3 So I'm pretty excited. Though for those wondering the base is was mine however I don't think it's available anywhere right now. I'm pretty sure when I put all my old bases together onto that one file I left this one out because of how horrible it is. XD But for those curious to see what my bases looked like back in 2007 up there is an example lol.
So yay. I think it's safe to say at the very least I improved over the years. XD Anyone else wanna share their old stuffs they've had hidden in an obscure folder? We can comfort each other! Wink/Razz  Leave some stuff in the comments and I'll add you here to shine together in our amateur glory haha!

:D Thanks everyone!

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes! I don't have time to reply to each one but I really appreciate everyone taking the time to leave me best wishes. My hubby just got back from deployment so I've been very busy which is why I'm just now getting around to thanking you all. I'm still going to stay on hiatus for a little while longer because I have two anime cons to attend this month so I'm rushing around getting my cosplay ready and whatnot :) I hope everyone is doing well!

Hiatus

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 13, 2014, 12:23 PM
I'm taking a break for a couple of weeks. I'm having a ton of personal issues and dA drama has only been making my depression worse. So....I'll be back later guys. Thank you for your support<3

Kiriban! + Pixel Feature

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 11, 2014, 7:00 AM
     Before I list the Kiriban I want to feature a very talented artist who could use some love! She recently took up pixeling and is offering point commissions for creations such as these:

                CM: Mio by Shaienny CM: Taylor by Shaienny CM:Nae by Shaienny Emil and Sumire by Shaienny
150 :points:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Takumi by Shaienny Iolantha by Shaienny Remi by Shaienny
100:points:
--------------------------------------------------------------
She's extremely affordable and her art is  fantastic so go check her out! Shaienny
<da:thumb id="467929189"/>


And without further interruptions, the Kiriban number for this week is 57,300! 
In case anyone questions it, I will be doing a Kiriban every week for the month of August :) Think of it as a celebration for my Birthday Month! 

My kiriban is set for 57,300! In order to participate you must be watching me and include the time in your screenshot (the clock in the right bottom corner will work.) There will only be one winner so if deviantart messes up and two people somehow get it then the winner will be the person with the earlier time. Please send me a link to your screenshot in a note.  :) The winner will receive whatever type of art they would like from me. My only limitation is that only avatars can be animated. Everything else must be stagnant. Thanks! And good luck to everyone!♥


TO DO LIST
  1. Kiriban Prize
  2. Collab with Bev
  3. Mio Chibi
  4. Art of Dosha and Michi
And did I mention I love Shaienny art? I could just stare at my commission from her all day<3 <3 <3   
  CM: Mio by Shaienny










Finding deviantart was somewhat by accident. I was starting to get heavy into dolling and I kept noticing all these dollers had links to their profile on this website. So I decided to join to see what it was all about and well...I got hooked. I was able to find new dollers I hadn't ever heard of who were amazing and I found I could get updates from my favorite dollers much sooner than I would on their website. It was a whole new world for me. And as I developed as an artist and started to branch out a bit I found the community to be the perfect place to go. There were so many resources and tutorials and I don't think my art would be were it is now without deviantart. 

That being said, here are some dolls from artists who have been a great inspiration to me over the years♥
IM  BACKKKK. by kawaii-hime Edwardian Style by utenaxchan InspiredByThePicContestEntry by Jishin <da:thumb id="35067673"/>  Mistress of Aquarious by Mistress-Jaeden  Inspired by chkuyomi by Elychan Doll - Sailor Summer Snapshot by firstfear 

Happy Birthday dA! It's been an amazing ride and I can't wait to see what the future holds for this place♥

Moving Time and Anime Suggestions

Journal Entry: Thu May 29, 2014, 8:21 AM
Sailor Transformation Icons by Rythea

So you may or may not have noticed that I've been more active lately. Well I'm finally getting treatment for my depression and suddenly the world has interest for me again. I'm actually enjoying drawing and watching anime...stuff a few months ago were a complete non-interest to me. And honestly I feel like a new person. It's been great! The only downside is that while I've recovering and doing very well I'm also having to pack up all my things and move to a new location because my husband finally finished his schooling. So around June 5th and on I'll probably be back to being less active for a little while because I have to get my new household in order. Oh and I'm moving to Georgia. Land of the Walking Dead XD We'll be about 40 minutes away from Jacksonville FL so I'm pretty excited<3 I've never lived in Georgia before but I figured it can't be much different from when I lived in Mississippi. (From my visit last weekend I'm going to say the weather is extremely alike which isn't ideal but I'm used to it at least)

Anyways, since I now am interested in anime again I need to play catch up and watch some. So any suggestions would be great! I typically like Horror/Suspense because the raw emotion in those feed my artist muse but I'll watch pretty much anything with a good storyline. <3

The kirban was caught. Thanks to all who participated =3
Then you should go try and catch Fireflowermaiden's kiriban. It's about 40 views away and the winner gets a full-body, fully colored picture from her. Incase you're wondering what that would look like here are some examples:


Also if you'd like advertisement for your kiriban just hit me up with a note and I'll gladly make a journal for yours!


Seriously?

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 3, 2014, 6:48 PM
Like if you hate my guts or have a problem with me, how about telling me before I do a bunch of freebies? I'd rather not do stuff for people like that and honestly I feel pretty used right now. 

But that's okay. At least now we're clear on what kind of person you are. 

As for me, I shall go play final fantasy 14 and chill with friends who actually care about me. 


I'm so boring

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 1, 2014, 10:57 PM
I'm totally just making this journal to get the old one off of my page. I can't say if I'm going to be artistically active again or if I'm just here to finish some stuff I promise. At the very least you can expect at least one post from me a month if I can help it. I want my 2014 overview to have a picture for each month. :D

As for those wondering about commissions, I don't think I will be opening them again. I have more important things to focus on right now.

That being said...here's what I have left to work on-

A full body  for SkullChuu



and....a ton of stuff on Final Fantasy 14.
 Dunno if any of you guys play but if you do and you're on the server adamantoise hit me up sometime~ 
I'm a lalafell named Vicious Kitten. >:3

And that's all for now. I hope everyone's been doing well and is enjoying 2014 thus far♥


Taking a Break

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 4, 2013, 12:43 PM
Commissions are officially closed. My artistic muse is pretty much dried up and now that I'm sick with a cold it just seemed right to go ahead and close up shop until the holidays are over. 

Once I'm recovered from this cold I do plan on doing a few art trades so keep an eye out for that journal♥


Design OC Contest with dA memberships as prizes!

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 16, 2013, 8:03 PM
My friend has some OCs who need to be drawn so she has decided to host a contest with some great prizes! The first place winner will receive a year membership to dA, a complex avatar from me, and a full body drawing by me!♥ And that is just first place. So if you have the time go check out her contest journal!
And even if you personally aren't interested, please spread the word! She is really hoping for this to be successful and she would greatly appreciate any advertisement♥ Thanks for looking!

Life Update and Icon Prizes

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 8, 2013, 2:15 PM
Well my trip home wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be...other than my mother-in-law treating us like her personal dump. She is a terrible hoarder and won't throw ANYTHING away however she had determined that she doesn't want all her junk anymore so giving it to her son gets around the whole not throwing stuff away....And it's not that I don't appreciate her trying to give us things but we REALLY don't need to take on any more junk. And to make matters worse their chain smoking has made everything she gave us emit a HORRIBLE smell and now my house smells absolutely terrible and I literally just want to cry. 

And that isn't even the worse part of coming home...No I opened my laptop (which I had left here since I wouldn't need to use it while away) and it had a weird blue screen and said it couldn't start up windows 8 and that I needed to repair it with the disc it came with. My laptop didn't come with a disc reader...much less a set up disc. So guess who lost literally everything? Yep...I have NOTHING I was working on. The only things salvaged were some sketches I had sent to a friend on facebook. I guess I should be happy that my husband was even able to convert my laptop back into a computer instead of a brick...but I lost so much...and my house stinks...and he's at work until 10pm...I'm just going to throw a pity party. And possibly replay the last of us and shoot the hell outta some zombies. 
</span>

With all that being said, commissions won't be back until August. I have alot to do in my house to get it back to a happy place...and until I get that fixed I honestly don't think I would be able to concentrate correctly. However, if you're seriously interested in an icon by me, you can try to win one in Fireflowermaiden's contest.
Design Contest!!! (PRIZES UPDATED!)New semester in one of my RP groups, :iconMonsterAcademy:, is starting up and my character Rhea needs to look spiffy and stylish!
The only problem is...her creater is having a little bit of a hard time designing a fall/winter look for her due to being busy with other groups and character creations :C
Thats where YOU come in! I'd like YOU to take a crack at designing Rhea's new look for the next semester. I've got references galore for you to work off of, including pictures of her old and current outfits!
And of COURSE there are PRIZES involved for three lucky people!!!
Now - RULES
1) You dont have to draw on top of the paper doll of Rhea...though you are welcome to borrow it should you wish. You dont even need to draw HER...just the clothes in general.
2) Keep in mind her personal style -
Rhea has a tendency towards softly elegant clothing choices. She likes anything that seems ladylike and doesnt mind an occasional ruffle or two. That DOES NOT mean, however, poofy lolita style dresses

She hasn't updated the prizes yet, but I have donated an icon to each place in her contest. Which means you literally just have to place to win an icon by me. There are also other awesome prizes so if you're great at designing outfits you should go check it out. 


So yeah...I'll be on a semi-hiatus for a while longer....;_;





Stolen Icon (Resolved)

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 23, 2013, 11:48 AM
Okay so the person finally changed their icon...though they didn't bother replying, I had to go to their page to see that they've changed it. They could have at least owed up to the fact that they did wrong. In fact, I wasn't upset about this until now. An apology would be nice...but whatever. I guess you can't expect thieves to have manners. /endrant


Is there any way to report someone for stealing an icon? I wouldn't be that bothered by it except they've stolen something I was paid to make for someone else. 

On another not so depressing note, after I finish the few commissions I have taken, I will be going on hiatus again. This time it's because in three days I have my mother, two sisters, and my father-in-law coming to stay for a few days for my husband's Power School graduation which is going down Friday. Then on July 3 or 4th my husband and I will be headed back to Mississippi for a day or two to visit for the first time together in well over a year. And then after that I'm probably just going to need recovery from all that running around. So expect to only see me lurking this month at best. 

Also....

COMMISSIONED ARE CLOSED. I seriously don't have time right now. ;x; Though you can try to catch my kiriban to get a free icon. 50k pageview is your target.


Avatar Commissions (Closed)

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 3, 2013, 6:25 AM

Celebrating my first wedding anniversary!

Journal Entry: Wed May 22, 2013, 3:03 PM
Tomorrow afternoon I'll be headed to Pigeon Forge, TN and I won't be back until the 27th. I'm going to see the Titanic museum and let my inner history fanatic go crazy. And apparently I got very lucky in that the museum currently has the violin of one of the band members that will only be shown for a short while. TwT So yes...I'm very excited. Of course we'll be doing other things as well but the museum will definitely be the highlight of the trip for me. 

Hopefully I'll have some pretty pictures to share when I get back.♥

But anyways, that is why you may or may not hear from me this weekend. :3 Though on the bright side, when I get back I shall be working on opening up commissions again♥

:dummy: Now to pack for all this!


Eh

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 30, 2013, 2:06 PM

It's Alive~

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 27, 2013, 12:04 AM
>_> Well I've finally managed to get inspiration again so look forward to finally seeing some new pixel work from me. I also want to thank everyone for the all the generous feedback on my latest piece. I really do appreciate it. ;_; You guys make me so happy. It is really setting the stage for a great artistic year.<3 My goal for this year is to finish at least one doll per month that way I can do the cool end of the year collection thing. (I was sad at how blank it was for 2012 which is why I didn't post it)

On another note, orenji-seira mentioned it might be fun to have a contest where the goal is to doll an elderly person. I'm curious as to if anyone else would be interested in such a contest or maybe even a collab. I'll probably do a poll in a day or two to see what the general consensus is but please feel free to comment with your ideas on the matter.
