hey guys good news I am officially going 2 be a student at glasgow school of art in september! I'm super buzzing, the feeling of hard work being worth it is nice!! :>>

I'm also off for two weeks for easter and then I only have three days left of school, forever... amazing. this will be my first easter holidays in like, two years where I haven't been working my ass off non stop. so happy and relieved!! 

oh yeh and last week I visited my brother down in leeds! and it was so good guys. like amazing!!

oh and I've started playing guild wars 2 again!! what a sexy game. so fun. so stylish.
life seems to be quite good rn I think. yeh. 

hope everyone else is feeling cool! as always I haven't made a journal in ten years but heyy. 


here are some features cause I still think it's the best idea I've ever had:

I could literally cry thank god. 

but hi everyone long time no see. I've been hella busy with school and stuff but I managed to make quite a lot of progress in november soo I don't actually have to do as much as I thought this month. go me. 
my portfolio deadline for glasgow school of art is the 22nd january and for edinburgh uni it's the 27th so after then I shall be nice and relaxed and happy. hopefully! oh and then I'll be able to actually post all of the stuff I've done as a whole, weeew I like doing that. and then I'll do some digital stuff for sure!! cause I have commissions to do haha. 

hmm what else. not being able to play dragon age inquisition is as painful as ever. but apart from that life is okay really. I just have to hope for the best about getting into art school (and then cry for ten years if I don't) and chill really! 

oh and I'll post some photography stuff too since I've got my flickr up and running c:
I'll need to figure out the best way to do that haha. 

but I hope everyone is doing well! season's greetings to you all <3333

hey everyone thought I should just make a little journal to keep up to date! not much has really been happening, I've been quite busy with schoolwork (I have so much to do just for christmas I'm so scared haha) at the moment, hence my lack of activity! although closer to christmas I'll have all the work I've been doing up until then photographed (since it's stupid big) so that's something to look forward to I guess??

I started inktober too! you can see the updates on a daily basis either on my instagram or facebook, or all of them at once at the end of the month? are other people doing it too? you really should! it's my first time and I already feel way more productive haha. 

I'm also really enjoying photography in school more than I expected so I might be posting some stuff?? although don't get your hopes up I really have no idea of the quality of what I'm doing - or really just what I'm doing in general haha. it's lots of fun though and gives me something else to do other than art all the time!

but anyway I hope everyone has a nice october and doesn't get too stressed about anything! I'm hoping I won't - I'm off for a week next week but, so hopefully I'll get some digital stuff done too? (oh I've just remembered this time last year I was going to rome, I'm so sad :cc)

(I still have like 2000 deviations and 500 journals/polls/etc. to clean through haha go me)

hey everyone!! since it's since a few people are opening commissions so I'd thought I'd help them along instead of just pushing myself all the time haha (and it's a good way to procrastinate too!)
I won't embarrass myself and write a bunch of paragraphs about these people but have faith in me that they're nice people and even nicer artists that definitely deserve a look c:

oh and anyone can nominate any other people that are looking for a little boost too! (just as long as their prices are fair.) I might be adding more people as I remember them haha I'm bad at people

I also started korra again after I abandoned it half way through season 2 last year, and I actually managed to stop watching it the episode just before it got good again! and season 3 is even better. I'm really happy I started it again, I really missed it!! and I don't think it's getting cancelled anymore which is good. but yeah, those who had lost faith in it I would definitely recommend giving it another shot :>

hey everyone! my last exam is tomorrow, which means I'll be able to devote all (most) of my time to my art! so study study study fanart study! or something like that. 

but I'm thinking of joining a conceptart type forum thingy like permanoobs, so I'm wondering people's opinions of those types of websites! are they really helpful in terms of support and critique or are they just full of kids who rip apart your art with no intentions of helping you?? blah I am conflicted

hope everyone is doing lovely! <33

  • The first 20 people that comment on this journal will be featured below and I'll choose three deviations I like most from their gallery! 
  • If you comment, you must to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (me) and three pieces of my art on the first place. 
  • The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone

Taughannock Falls in winter by EthanRedOtterThe Eon of Discontent by EthanRedOtter Tribes of Anowara: Prologue
It was a misty autumn afternoon, nearly evening. The sea sat calm, and the wind blew silently, unfeelable. The dew clung to the needles of the trees, Cypress, Cedar, Pine. Kenéil sat upon a rock, on a white beach, looking out to sea, looking for signs of his quarry: Harbor seals. He too, felt the droplets embrace on his fur, but he did not mind, his kind loved the water. His kind were the Kayéil Kushtaka, or Peaceful Land Otter People, in their tongue.
The Kayéil Kushtaka were a relatively new race in Anowara, only existing for the last millennia. Physically, they were similar to River Otters, only they had opposable thumbs, a two legged stance, slightly shorter more human looking torsos, and limbs that were about twice as long as their four legged brethren, as well as Human height. They were slender, but quite muscular, with small shoulders and necks the width of their relatively small heads, to add to their swiftness underwater. Their people did not have boats for this

woahh sorry guys I haven't actually made a journal since october! I just feel like it hasn't really been needed, or maybe I just like other people's pretty art on my page aha c:

so anyway recently I have been super busy with school since I have my exams coming up (1st may ;_; ) and I've also got a whole load of artwork to do for my school portfolio thing which means I haven't been doing any digital stuff in weeeks. I haven't been sketching in march at all because of it, but this is more important and I just gotta power through!

my exams are pretty spread out after I get the first three out of the way, which means hell of a lot of time to paint! last may was amaazing! my last exam is near the end of the month so I'll be opening commissions again straight away! tbh I just really can't wait for them to be over, I kinda forget what life is like without the pressure of exams is sometimes! ;_;

I hope everyone is well! as always I'm more active on my tumblr, instagram (though its kinda becoming overtaken by my school art aha) and facebook (to an extent??)
(and maybe twitter if u like to hear me rambling about silly things??)
