-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.

Long time no see?

Hello everyone! >.< Gosh, I keep getting myself into situations like this...sorry about the huge absence! I just want to let you know that I'm alive, but I really am swamped with work this semester, so it'll probably be a little while longer before I post art again...agh T__T I'm so sorry! But I promise I will!

I hope you all are doing well!<3 Take care!


Short SHORT post to say that I had the MOST FABULOUS 2 hours ever....


After five years haha, finally got to meet one of my SWEETEST friends ever!
And her family is just amazing. >.< So sweet and very kind, and omg hilarious too haha Ima-chan your dad xD He's great!

I could go on and on and onnnn about this but I've got work to do and I AM JUST TOO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!! >.<

I'll see you soon Ima-chan!! <3

Take care everyone!

Nearing 100...

Hello everyone! Wow, it really has been almost a month since I've written a post here, I truly apologize! >.< February has been RIDICULOUS: My dad is currently ill, I had projects and midterms going on and it's just been insane non-stop. Luckily, I'm on Spring Break right now, so I'm hoping for a lot more time to draw. ^^

Which brings me to the title of this post!

I'm at 96 fanart submissions, which means I'm getting VERY close to my 100th, and I want to make each of them count! I have some pics that I've kinda been working on, but I only finished one of them(a Kiriban pic on DA). I know you haven't seen art from me in a while, but I really am trying to get only my best work up here xD At least until my 100th submission... So I'm very sorry for the wait!

But thank you to those of you who have subscribed to me as of late(including LGA775, whom I've actually been quite familiar with since he's a long-time member haha, I just didn't say anything, sorry! >.< ), I will try my best to post up more work soon over this break!

I've got a few plans for Spring Break, which include going to Disney World for 3 days with my mom and maybe some friends. Furthermore, this weekend I'll probably end up meeting TWO very good online friends of mine for the first time, so I'm VERY VERY excited for that! ^^

Other than that, I've just been enjoying myself and trying to relax to the best of my ability during this short time period. I was hoping to go to Korea over this break, but since my dad is sick, he said it wouldn't be a good idea because he wouldn't be able to be with me and take care of me(in which case, what would be the point of spending money?), and I understand his reasoning and respect that.

So I hope you all are doing well! I understand that there have been more art thieves around lately? I'm a bit surprised by that, because I haven't seen any that have blatantly stood out to me, but then again I just might not have been around enough to notice.

Take care everyone! ^^ I promise art soon! >.<

Reporting Problems?

Hello everyone~ just a quick question: how do you report a problem/bug with the site to the mods? I don't mean reporting like reporting another user, but rather reporting a problem with a site. In all my years on this site, I've never had to do something like this, so I'm not sure how. xD Any ideas?

I hope you all are doing well, and I'm sorry for the lack of submissions lately T__T I'm really trying hard to keep up with my artwork, but it's been difficult.
Take care and good luck to you all this week!

What happened to you, Sayu?!

EDIT: Okay, copying and pasting posts between here and DA is just not working. It feels too artificial of me, so this is the last time I'll probably do it.

Hello hello everyone! It's been a while, hasn't it?

On another note, it has been BUSY NON-STOP. My schedule is RIDICULOUS, and I'm seriously regretting the fact that I chose to do these two particular journalism courses together in the same semester without balancing either of them out with easier classes. I have so much that I want to do and explore this semester...it's just been so incredibly busy! I've barely been able to make time to sleep, much less make new art.

However, I've been DYING inside to at least SKETCH something, and I can't believe how long I've gone without even opening my sketchbook. I've had to make a tumblr AND a twitter(my two least favorite sites) for my journalism course, and I've got a photography and writing assignment coming up...all for one class and all due next week! Not to mention, I've gotta design a magazine spread for the Oscars that are coming up, and catch up with Microeconomics and prepare for a Japanese presentation that is happening on Monday.
This is terrible. T__T

A word of advice to those of you who are not in college yet: when you actually DO get into college, make sure you balance out hard courses you're taking with at LEAST ONE easy one. I refused to do that this semester, and now I've barely got any free time to do anything I want. School activities and a bunch of other things consume my time...it's really frustrating.

Oh! And here is the finished logo that I created in Adobe Illustrator!

I thought you all might want to see it, since many of you were curious. The concept behind the logo is written underneath it, if you'd like to take a look. I've linked you all to the blog/website for my course, so yep. Thank you all so much again for all of your wonderful feedback(on both DA AND here)! It truly inspired me in creating the logo. I have yet to find out how well I did on it, however! Grades come out within the week or so.

What else...hm. Well, I'm going to Korea over Spring Break, it turns out! It's gonna be TERRIBLY tight, but I have to do it for assignment purposes. T__T It's really frustrating, but I think I'll have fun while I'm there as well.

I have no idea what my art will look like if I try drawing again, but I don't want to hesitate more in finding out. I really am trying to make time for everything I want to do, even though it's tough.

How have you all been doing? I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Valentine's Day! Mine was FABULOUS, because I WON MY COURT CASE IN CHALLENGING THE TICKET!!<333 So I'm VERY happy! Not guilty and case dismissed ^^
Even though I had a Microeconomics exam that night. T___T

I hope you all have been doing well!<3 Please update me on how you all are doing, and don't hesitate to send me a message or leave a comment~! I'd love to hear from you guys.

Take care!!
