That is my new account!
I will be active from now on, submitting new work every few days and commenting and faving other people's work also.

Please re-watch me there!

I have rewatched all the people I have watched on here. If I have missed anyone out then please just say so.

Also, my tumblr is rlhillustration.tumblr.com
I update rough work, WIPs and behind the scenes photos here every few days also.

:bulletblue::pointr: Firstly, I HAVE A JOB! Yay! A real job, with a salary and a pension and healthcare, all of those scary grownup things.

I will be illustrating diagrams, instructions and artists impressions of products for a global healthcare company. Comparing that description to my current gallery, it's probably pretty hard to imagine me doing that, but I have changed a lot during University while I have been away and have been too busy and stressed to come to dA much.

So, now that my relentless job search as a recently graduated graphics student has finished, I have started sorting out all my stuff. I need a fresh, new start, and that will come with a fresh new account that I will be moving to and making my main account soon. This account will most likely remain a personal account, or I may deactivate it once I have moved things I still like over to the new one.


:bulletblue::pointr: And now, about my NEW ACCOUNT! It will show finished works, and will be coupled with my website - where my portfolio and professional work will be shown, and my blog on tumblr - where I will show works in progress and behind the scenes.

I will be rewatching everyone on my new account soon after things are a little more organised.

I hope everyone is well, and that my friends here will forgive me for disappearing for so long so regularly. I am very sorry I have been so unreliable on here, I will change that all very soon. I have missed everyone immensely, and hope that we can pick up where we left off. I would love to hear how everyone has been doing and what they have been up to c:

:bulletblue::pointr: I've finally finished University!
Argh, it's so weird! I'm supposed to be a proper grown up functioning member of society now... Oo er, I don't fancy that XD

I wanted to come back to dA way before now, but even though I finished my course a few weeks ago the exhibitions have been non stop! This week my work is in the D&AD exhibition in London, last week it was in the New Natives exhibition, and the week before it was in the University end of year show. I have to be at all three, chatting to potential clients and employers, handing out business cards and generally being sociable.

I have already had two agencies quite interested in me and my work, and I have a casual interview in London next week with the Cultural Director from one of those companies, so that's quite exciting X3
I will have to get a portfolio together, but as it's nothing formal and just a chat and coffee, he will probably help with what I should include in my portfolio and what to do more of and so on anyway c:


:bulletblue::pointr: SO! More up to date stuff will to arriving on dA soon. I will be working on my website and blog also, which will be associated with a more professional deviantart account. This account will remain as more casual and personal work, and for any commissions I might get here (if ever that happens P: haha)

:bulletblue::pointr: Has anyone else had to work on a compulsory project for so long that sometimes you just don't care any more? :c

We have been working on a massive essay and a single individual project since February. They are both on the same subject (the essay and project had to be linked in some way) and I am just so sick of it sometimes!
I have ideas I would much rather be doing simply because they are different than this same thing over and over again.

The essay was handed in a little while ago, but I have made very little progress on the visual project (because of reasons mentioned in my previous journal). I just ... argh *sigh* :<

:bulletblue::pointr: I can't wait for all of this to be over. I really don't think I'm suited to this University course, it's been torture ;^;
I am so looking forward to getting on with my own drawings again, much less stressful, and I honestly really want to do them again. So that's a good thing I guess c:

I just have to get through the next 5 weeks of monotony before final hand-in >^< argh!

:bulletblue::pointr: I'm still not officially back from my hiatus yet, but I do lurk on dA from time to time. I am getting geared up to return after my final project for University is finished.

:bulletblue::pointr: I have disappeared from deviantart since last summer, and I am very sorry. I feel bad about just up and leaving with no explanation. I will be coming back, but not for a little while still, I have a lot of things to sort out.

:bulletblue::pointr: First off, my motivation for both personal work and University work had been waning for quite a while. This was something that I have desperately been trying to work on with not much luck.
But in July I took a major step backwards when my dog became very ill, she started getting very thin even though she was eating. The vets said she had diabetes, but the insulin injections didn't work, and she still got thinner and thinner, and then she stopped eating too. She gradually went completely blind also. They decided she had Cushings syndrome, meaning the insulin wouldn't work, so she had to take tablets for that too. But it still didn't work. So in August she had to be put down. I was right there next to her the whole time, it was awful.

I decided that when starting the new year of University in October I would force my self to be much more motivated and basically ignore everything else. It didn't work too well though, and I feel that the first semester went terribly.

:bulletblue::pointr: Over the past year I have been extremely worried about my Grandmother also. She has Chronic Lymphocitic Leukaemia, and has to have chemotherapy and blood transfusions on a regular basis. However it was my Grandfather that passed away first. He had basically completely given up, and I dont know why. He wouldn't eat or drink anything, even when he was in hospital. It seemed like he started to get better, but after they moved him to a less high dependancy ward it all went down hill. They sent him home after about a month of him refusing to help himself. They couldn't do anything for him. He died at home 5 weeks ago.

What's scary is that I have been to 3 funerals and 1 death in the past 12 months. My Step Father's dad, my boyfriends Grandmother, my dog, and my own Grandfather have all died one after another.

I hope that everyone can understand that it's impossible to be motivated in the slightest to do anything at all when everyone around me is dying.

:bulletblue::pointr: I have a lot of personal things to sort out, and a lot of University work to try and complete. I will be back. But not right now...

I am not looking for anyones sympathy or for anyone to pity me. I am sorry if you may feel I have shared too much. But I just wanted to give a full and truthful explanation to all of the friends I had suddenly left here on deviantart.

:bulletblue::pointr: Ah, I've been looking after my Mum's house, dog and newly laid lawn for the last week and a half while she has been away on holiday, so not much art at the moment. I've been doing a lot more hours at work too which hasn't been brilliant fun, I must say :/ but the extra money is nice. I haven't really had the chance to start my summer art project-type-things yet because I've been up to so much, including seeing The Avengers at the cinema with Lady-Liara and kinno-nabi. It was amazing! :dummy:

:bulletblue::pointr: Anywho ... the first part of making progress in everything I want to do is to think of a name for my website (and therefore my blog and University dA account). I am having a huge issue with it though because my first name, last name and my initials in various combinations have already been taken (plus they're super boring) and thinking of something that is available, sounds professional and isn't too childish or too corporate is ridiculously hard! It shouldn't be THIS hard! D:
I think I'm massively over thinking things ;^;

What kind of names have you guys chosen?
How effective do you think it is for being clear that you're an artist? and how professional sounding do you think it is?

:bulletblue::pointr: Finally finished University for this year. The last day was the 21st, but I needed a week to recover after that, hehe ^^;
It was a real struggle towards the end of this year, and I'm disappointed with my work, but I did get everything finished so I will at least pass. I plan on going back next year and doing my very best after using the summer to sort out various issues I've been having.

Anyway, I'm back and have lots of plans for things that I am determined to get done. I've kind of stalled art wise and I want to get back to actually liking drawing again. I will be making a new dA account for my University/more professional work which I don't really submit here anyway, and the wolves and requests and less professional things will remain on this account (possibly with a user name change though X3 )

Of course I will also try and hang out with Lady-Liara and kinno-nabi as much as humanly possible as I haven't seen much of them because of all the work at uni ^^;

:bulletblue::pointr: Lets face it, I've been pretty rubbish when it comes to being on dA this school year. Everything has been so overwhelming that it's been impossible to get my University work done on time even without going on here at all.
There are so many people here that I miss, and whose work I love seeing and commenting on, I'm so sorry I've been an awful watcher and contributor even after I said I would try harder :<

Anyway, I'm going to be realistic. I wont be able to be on here much until June when I have finished University for this year. After then I will implement my plan to be a more professional and organised artistical-type-person P:
Here's the plan:

:bulletblue::pointr: I've been away for ages. I've been overrun with University work, plus the internet not working at my Dad's house since August didn't help either :<
The first term of University this year has been really tough for me. I've been getting behind on work (for reasons that I wont bore you guys with) and really had to rush my projects and essay to get them in on time.

:bulletblue::pointr: Now that I have the internet at my dad's house back again I'll be back on dA more often. Not all the time obviously, the second semester of University starts on Monday, but sharing my work here and looking at everyone else's work is something I really enjoy :3
Plus I miss all you guys so much! ;^;

:bulletblue::pointr: Because of the HUGE workload at University and the fact that my father has STILL yet to get the internet fixed at his house (almost 3 months now! C'MON!!! D: ) I haven't been able to go on DA at all really :<

I'm so sorry to everyone that I haven't commented or faved anything, or submitted any work of my own either. It's just been so crazy this first month and a half of University that DA hasn't been at the top of my list ;^;
Plus I've been ill quite a lot acually, I had a cold a couple of weeks ago and got better. But now I have ANOTHER one! D:

:bulletblue::pointr: On a happier note - Lady-Liara, THWT and I will be going to Kitacon in April! My first ever anime convention! ^0^ Woooo!!!

I'm really sorry about my absence, there is something wrong with the router at my dad's house and the internet just wont connect at all. I'm at my dad's almost all of the time, so I haven't been on the internet in four weeks x_______x
That's why I haven't been submitting anything or commenting, I just haven't been physically able to go online! D:

:bulletblue::pointr:  Medical/Scientific Illustration - seriously, I don't know why I haven't thought of this sooner. I'm quite annoyed that in all of these years of being interested in science AND art I've only just thought of this.
I know a decent amount about anatomy and physiology, but I chose to do Genetics instead of Physiology at A level for my Biology option module. I'd actually really like to do a Physiology and Anatomy course, probably a home one so it doesn't conflict too much with my Graphic Arts course at University, and it would be more likely that I can start the course whenever rather than in Septembers like regular A level courses.

Sorry about my science waffle, it's just that I'm kind of excited about this as an actual potential career path for me ^-^
Of course I need to do some more research, but I think the idea might have potential :3

:bulletblue::pointr:  I managed to digitally colour a picture without giving up half way through and doing a half-arsed job at it! :dummy:
I'm really happy with it actually, if I can do all of my future digital pieces with as much effort then that would be brilliant. That's what I really want to do, what do you guys think?
My finished piece is here - seasonaldragon1.deviantart.com…
I didn't use any references, you can probably tell ^^;

:bulletblue::pointr:  It's not my usual style, I was wondering what you all thought of it and whether it was a good idea? I'd really appreciate any input anyone may have, just don't be too critical yet. I'm still new to this kind of digital art, I tried lineless-realism-ish a couple of years ago - fav.me/d258npf and would love to do my animals like this again too actually :3

I really want to work on my digital art. I feel that I am really impatient and rush the colouring. My abilities in doing backgrounds is basically non-existent too, which I'm quite annoyed about. But it's all my own fault really - I'm just not trying hard enough :<

I was just wandering how you guys feel about your own digital art, does anyone else have the same problems?

:bulletblue::pointr:  ... for my inactivity and general absence from dA ;^;
I've been working a lot of extra hours at work recently, it's basically turned into a full time job with me going in 5 days a week x_______x
By the time I get home I'm too tired to do much drawing and I end up just spending the rest of the day recovering for work the next day!
It's rather annoying.

I somehow have Thursday, Friday and Saturday off this week though! Yays! I will be drawing on those days, perhaps getting on with some long overdue requests, yes P:
I am over Lady-Liara's house on Thursday which should be an awesome fun day filled with talking and films and drawing :3

:bulletblue::pointr:   I'm feeling really unfulfilled by my job. I'm not in floods of tears like last year, but it's like ... I just don't care any more.

It has nothing remotely to do with art or design, I have to wash dishes and serve food all day because I can't cook any of the slightly more complicated dishes, it's like being the janitor of the catering industry - the work is unskilled, menial and mindless, as well as physically tiring. The kitchen is always so hot, and everything feels to pointless and insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

People generally define themselves by their jobs now days. And this is not my definition -  my definition is my hobby and my University work. Everyone at work thinks that when I'm not there I just sleep and sit around watching TV. I am an art student - Art students are different, we draw, we design, we do something productive.
They just don't understand it because their job is what they are, and they don't seem to get that it is not what I am as well ...

:bulletblue::pointr:   I had an awesome day yesterday, I went round Lady-Liara's house and we watched films and baked all day long! :dummy:
I finally saw How To Train Your Dragon, it was amazing, so was Tangled. They're such lovely stories, and really well done too the animation was brilliant ^-^

We made grasshopper pie too - it's a peppermint marshmallow filling on a chocolate biscuit crumb base with whipped cream on top. The filling was bright green - we put in a tiny bit of green food colouring and it just kept getting greener and greener and greener! It was so funny, the filling looked a little radioactive, but it tasted lovely X3

Plus today I managed to dye my hair all alone without blinding myself, I'm rather proud of that X3

:bulletblue::pointr:   I've started planning out my graphic novel. I think I'll figure out the rough story, then plan a chapter, then draw it, then plan the next chapter, and draw it ... etc
Expect some character development designs and such too :3
I'll be giving the graphic novel it's own section on my website once that's up and running too.

I feel really inspired all of a sudden, I hope that's here to stay :3
