A character I drew while in school. I think I will name her Ami.
I’m probably going to abandon this character. Her name is Aurora, but she doesn’t look too different from nii-cat that much. She isn’t anything special, so I’m probably just going to get rid of her. oh well.
she may come back up once again. maybe.
another doodle I did for my nii-cat persona
it was a floating head doodle; womp
A doodle I did in the beginning of July. I had fun doing this one.
So, all my old artworks that were queued have now been finally posted.
(Except the new recents one after this post). Took me about 2 hours to queue it all and type all my thoughts on each piece.
Honestly, as of right now, I’m feeling quite the nostalgic, but also enlightened in a sense. Mostly because 2012 to 2013 was the start of where I knew I wanted to become an animator/ or when I just started having an immense passion for drawing characters and art.
I know I haven’t done much, and basically all the pieces are just pictures of girls/women, but I know I put (somewhat) a lot of thought into creating those characters, and I had fun while doing it.
If I had to give advice to my old self, I would just tell myself to keep on drawing, and NEXT TIME DO NOT RUSH YOUR DAMN PIECES, AND DRAW MORE OFTEN. All my old pieces looked like they were rushed because I wanted to post at a certain time or it’s just I haven’t drawn in forever, so I was spastic. Nonetheless, I can understand not drawing often because I had no time during school…I procrastinated a lot.
I know 2014 is coming to an end soon, but not my art journey. I always had this struggle of drawing for a long period of time. Sometimes I draw one drawing a week, then I stop completely for almost a month or two. It’s weird. But I know I can fix that if I keep up with myself, and not hesitate on drawing because I always feel like I’m going to produce something terrible.
But anyways, looking back on those two years it was really stressful, and I noticed how much I completely improved with linework, precision, anatomy, and etc. I know it ain’t perfect now, but I’m getting there. I’m glad I was still able to draw through all those stressful moments in highschool; being a transfer student and such, it was hard for me to make friends.
Like I said, I know I didn’t draw often, but when I did draw, it was like a safe haven for me to post on my online community and get feedback because it would get me through my depression and I would actually communicate with people.
And to the followers who have been following me since then, thank you so much for sticking with me. I’m glad I met a lot of artists I became friends with online, even if I don’t talk to y’all often, I know y’all are always there for some great feedback.
Sorry for the long post. A few more recent drawings are on the way. Thank you so much again! I hope you guys have a wonderful school year.
love y’all. -

Just a gif I did for fun. I wanted to be spunky. Everyone liked this one, it was something simple and quick. Not to be taken seriously, and I could have done better on it.
If you noticed the date jumped from last year’s November to this year’s March, mostly because I stopped drawing a lot in between because senior year was stressing me out in highschool. I did draw some things in between, but I’m not posting those (it’s only like 2 artworks) because I don’t think it’s presentable.
Anyways, This is the last one. I will be posting more recent artworks now.

The later concept art of Nakita. It was titled “Ayanni” on dA as that was her earlier name. I thought Nakita was a better fit for her. Sometimes I slip and called her Ayanni still. Anyways. The anatomy here is a bit spunky, and I don’t know why I did that terrible fake shadow thing again. I’m guessing I had nothing to put in the background, so I improvised. I seriously have to start drawing true backgrounds, like scenery and all that ish.
I tried with my one of my other characters, but it came out terrible and I lost motivation. I hope to start improving myself sooner or later, and not being scared to try something new. Oh well.

Another “Queen” image. I did not like the outcome of this. I worked too much on the hair and I did not care about the rest of the image. I think it was because I was trying to finish this quickly as I was getting tired.
Also, the background is terrible, I did not know what I was thinking adding the smoke. But, good times I suppose.
Took me hours to finish this for a crappy outcome.

This was when I was going through my “Queen” phase. I still am though. That is my persona, about how I was able to find more confidence in myself, and I should treat myself as such. I shouldn’t go for anything less.
I referenced this off of a stock image I found on dA and made a little difference in the hand gesture. First time drawing my twists, an amateur outcome. I don’t think I would re-draw this, but I like this piece a little. Not too much though.

A TERRIBLE SKETCH. This is the character that Nakita runs into when she comes down to earth. I didn’t even give her an official name or re-drew her in anything else. I was going to name her Annie, but I wanted to give her an Asian name (why wouldn’t I give her any justice???) It was killing me inside.
I did want to name her Kim, but I felt that was too stereotypical, but then one of my Asian friends told me there aren’t much asian names out there. (Hopefully, she is correct, but I did do a search, I didn’t find much.)
But, I am bringing the story/ concept back. It’s called Stellar!
