Wow, this is very nice, very deep and meaningful. The quote is your description is very mysterious and profound, it adds depth instead ...

So, I guess I can declare myself off of my hiatus from art, cus I've finished all my summer work...:icongreatjobplz: This was early :) I have five days until school starts for me, and I don't get much homework at the beginning of the year, so I should have time for art :D I've picked back up on my original story, "Poison," luckily, even though I only edited a few chapters and I don't actually know where to go from here... I also kinda broke my hiatus yesterday to devote half the night to a random Shikito (from Fruits Basket) drawing...^^; I think Cal might be starting to get antsy, so I should pick up on my Carciphona fan art at some point~

Speaking of which, I've been wanting to write doujinshis for a while, mainly for Carciphona fan art, but I don't know if I can...it might just take too much time and effort. (In case you don't know, a doujinshi is basically manga-style fan art.) I've had a few drawings that have taken several minutes, but usually a complete drawing will take me 4-8 hours. So I have the feeling that to do several drawings in a doujinshi would just take too much time and effort. But maybe if I try to do them quickly and easily it could work. I don't know if there's some way around it or something...

I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .
:iconroselb-5::iconroselb-5::iconroselb-1::iconroselb-2::iconroselb-3::iconroselb-4::iconroselb-5:

I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics at Attleboro Art Museum in Rhode Island.
Art is a natural talent and a gift. Sports have different seasons, school ends eventually, but art stays with you forever.
To me, music and art are the most beautiful and compelling forms of self-expression and catharsis. Art is the breath of life in me; it is my passion, my joy, and my sanctuary. I draw and write whenever I feel the pull - I have much more time in the summer, but despite school, workload, and stress, I draw and write in between. I also sometimes devote half a night or a whole night to staying up to draw or write.

I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have over 400 art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly :)

I know it looks like I'm asking for a lot but every bit will help!! I have a new group, Ran-maoFC, and when it gets enough members I would like to have contests for it but I don't have any prizes besides features :( So if you could donate, that would be nice!
