-My Deviantart(active)

Something random you should know: I LOVE it when people draw the character's personality is intact(in other words, unchanged)~ it really gives the picture a better feel because they act the same as they were made to be.

Voice meme questions?

Hello everyone!<3 I was inspired by Den-chan(harvestmoonluvr) to do a voice meme! =P So...I'll keep this post short!

Just ask any question(s) that you'd like, and I'll answer them with my real voice ^^ So...

Ask away!<3

To-do list(don't mind me!)

Hello everyone~ Just a quick to-do list thing to remind myself what I need to be doing. ^^ They are for friends and for fun, so thank goodness there's no pressure unlike before.

Art trade- RokuRei with FUNimation
Art trade- Akagami no Shirayukihime with superstarpanou
Quick gaia commish x2!
OC art- Waiting

and some other stuff, but I'm gonna take care of what I need to draw for others first before I jump the gun and overwhelm myself again xD

Expect some art soon! =) Take care!

October is almost here!

Hello everyone! ^^ How are you all doing? I'm sorry I've been away for a little while again..so much has been happening, but I don't want to ramble about it because..well frankly I don't really have the time xD I've gotta sleep soon!

Gosh, I've given up on worrying too much about subs haha. I keep losing them, but that's okay. I joined theOtaku with the intention of sharing my art with people around the world and to make friends here, and I've done that. So if you sub me, thank you, and if not, that's totally okay. ^^ There never used to be such things as "subs" when I joined theOtaku in the first place, so why should it affect me now? =P Otherwise, for the support I've gotten, thank you all SO much. <3 And I'm sorry I really haven't been posting much >.< College life has been so busy but also so wonderful!

Yesterday, I checked out my college's Archery Club and wow I'm just really excited to start participating in it! The people in it are so welcoming and I haven't shot in a while, so it'll be fun to improve my skills and make friends ^^ Perhaps I'll even get to compete!

But nonetheless, I haven't been paying too much attention to theO and I really should. I'll be more dedicated with my time around here, I promise!

Other than that..my birthday is coming up on October 14th~! I want to say I'm excited but honestly..I'm kinda eh about it xD I've never really been spoiled and I appreciate everything that I have already, so I'm very happy. ^^ A simple happy birthday wish from someone means a lot...and for those that have put time and effort into making drawings, cards or wallpapers for me, I'm also grateful for that extra time you've taken into consideration for me >.< I haven't drawn a birthday gift for a friend in such a long while..my goodness gracious OTL.

But in any case, thank you all so much for everything! I'll try and be around more! >.<
Take care!<33 There will be some art headed your way hopefully soon =)

I do wonder...

Why is it that after it's been 7 days and people don't post anything on their worlds, they lose subs? xDD I checked this idea with myself and some other users on theO and I find it a little silly that after one week, some people assume that someone is dead if they don't post anything haha. xD

That said, I want to let you all know that I'm really grateful for all of the support I've gotten, so thank you so much~ and sorry my posting of art frequency has slowed down, but for those of you that truly want to see my work, I'm really thankful, I really am.

So anyways~
Hello everyone!!<3 Happy September 19th! I hope you all are having a fabulous Monday so far ^^ I believe a lot of new seasons for many TV shows are premiering this week yes?

I was really happy to read a lot of your comments on my last world post, hearing about some of you guys's favorite memories ^^ There werent' many comments, but for the few I got, thank you very much for such honest answers! I love hearing about what you guys like and such!<3

College has been going really well for me! I got into my first official club on campus, called Singer-Songwriter Society and I'm super excited! It's for all types of musicians, singers and songwriters and I auditioned for the performing body of the group and, to my surprise,I made it in!<3 I'm very excited because they only picked 11 people out of 26 auditions (and 5 of those 11 were returning members). So I'm very excited and happy!

I've been very committed to what work I'm doing on campus as of late but don't worry, I haven't forgotten about my art!! I'm working on a new pic as I write this xD So don't worry haha!<3 It's with a new coloring style that I've wanted to try experimenting with..so don't freak out okay?

All in all, I just wanted to say thanks so much again to all of you guys that have stuck by me and continue to! I'm sorry that I'm not around as much as you all would like..especially in terms of art posting, but I won't let you down, I promise!

Take care everyone and have a fabulous Monday!<3

Question+Thank you!

EDIT: After messing with some settings, I've finally gotten my computer to accept Google Chrome! xD It wasn't allowing me to download it before LOL, so I'm very happy!
In other words, I'm able to comment again by using this web browser ^^ I hope I didn't mess anything up LOL but so far I love Google Chrome. =) Thank you all who suggested that I try out a different browser! ^^

Hello everyone! Happy September! ^^ I love when this month rolls around because the weather starts to cool down to welcome the Fall!<3 But unfortunately it's also one of the busiest months of the year OTL.

I wanted to say thanks so much to you guys for 50 hugs on my latest pic haha! It's been a while since I've had a newer work of mine make the front page of my "Most active" section in my portfolio xD I'm always looking to top old works(which I still have yet to do), but it looks like that won't be happening anytime soon.

Which leads me to tell you all about how silly I think you guys are for commenting so much despite my not being able to reply! >.< You guys are so so sweet, I can't thank you all enough! *hugs* I'm trying to figure out a way around this...maybe perhaps I'll send a PM to the mods about IE9 and the comment boxes.

I also wanted to just say how happy I was when I saw this challenge!<3 It gives me an excuse to draw Riiya again haha.

But more importantly, with my last pic's completion, I have finally completed my to-do list so I'll be focusing on myself and some art trades with close friends in this time! ^^ *nods*

And finally to just keep it short, here's the question of the day!
What are some of your favorite memories on theOtaku?

Whether you're a newer or older member, then just say what you like/liked now or way back when. ^^

Other than that, college is going well! Thank you all so much for the support! >.< I'll keep working hard!<3
Take care!<3
