Okay, I have a cup of milky coffee and a bag of Revels, and I'm FINALLY ready to write an update! :D

Major apologies for yet another absence, I'm going to try my best not to be so completely non-existent for such periods of time in the future. I've recently started back for my second year at university, so obviously I can't spend as much time on my artwork as I did over the summer. I'm still completing requests, for those of you who requested me, and these will be uploaded as soon as they are completed. Thank you all so much for your patience thus far, and please continue to be patient for just a little longer, obviously my priority right now is my course work. I'm still trying to find a little balance between my coursework and my artwork though, because I am already a lot more stressed with my course than I should be this early into the term, and drawing is a nice way of relieving that stress ^^"

So, yeah, hopefully I will still be uploading pictures for all you lovely people. I will also try to write a few more journals, in case anyone out there actually reads these things! XD Oh, and I've also been keeping a personal journal, or diary, or whatever, recently. I've tried this many times in the past as a safe place to vent my thoughts and feelings, but I always get bored, or forget to write in it, or just lose interest. However, this time around I am putting a lot more thought into the layout of my entries, rather than just writing blocks of text for pages. I've been doing some smaller doodles, and a few full-page ink illustrations that, typically, seem to have turned out better than the sketches I spend days working on XD So I might, possibly, upload a few examples of this (with the text blurred out of course ;) ) just to prove that I am still doing SOMETHING vaguely artistic with my time. :3

As well as requests, I'm going to be spending some more time doing pictures that I actually want to do, just for myself. I'll still be putting them on here, but I just mean they'll be pictures of my own invention rather than requests. I love drawing for other people, but I frequently lose the motivation or inspiration I need to keep the work at a standard I feel happy with, so I'm going to be doing my own stuff as well just to try and keep that level of motivation a little higher. I've been putting a LOT more thought and development into my two newest OCs, Aleksei and Nadia. They actually have an entire backstory in my head now, as opposed to just being two people in a drawing, so I'm hoping to do a lot more stuff to do with them. Don't be alarmed if they seem to be completely different people each time, I'm still working out a few of the finer details. But hopefully they'll still be recognisable as those characters.

Okay, I think I've thrown quite enough information at you all for the time being. Thank you for sticking by me for so long ^^"

Major love to you all. Have a great day :D

Who... (sketch) by themsgothgirl
Who... (sketch)
:iconcrityesplz:

First things first: this is not primarily meant to be Kingdom Hearts shipping fanart or anything. To be honest... I'm not really sure what it is XD I started this picture back in 2014 because I had the urge to draw Vanitas, so I sketched out the two figures and added details to Vanitas. Then... I put the picture away to die in my art folder until now. During which time, I completely forgot who the other character was supposed to be, or what context the picture was supposed to be presented in. I've learned my lesson, from now on I'm going to make notes on the back of the page ^^" So anyway, I turned the other guy into Sora, because I've always sorta shipped these two, and hey, it COULD be a shipping picture... even though it isn't, really. I don't even know any more XD So I'm hoping to add some text and tidy up the details, and the title will probably change once I've completely decided.

I'd love it if anyone wanted to leave some critique on this piece of work. Even though it's still a bit vague, and I need to sort out whatever's happening to poor Van's back, I'd love to get some constructive criticism on this. I sketched it out back before I ever started using references for poses, and once I'm a little more confident with anatomy I'd love to go back to that, so any comments would be welcome :)

Tea Party - Request by themsgothgirl
Tea Party - Request
:iconnocritiquewantedplz: - I know what I could have done better in this piece, so I'm not asking for any critique just now :)

This was requested by my friend Kayleigh. This is Kayleigh (left) and I (right), drinking tea and reading Harry Potter with our baby Albus Severus and our pet tortoise named Voldetort... I have wonderful friends :') This whole shenanigan is based on an imaginary life we took on a while ago, which somehow developed into this, and she asked me to illustrate it. It was a lot of fun XD

Materials:
    -A4 cartridge paper
    -0.1mm black fineliner
    -Promarkers
    -Pencil crayons (WHSmiths, Crayola)
    -White gel pen

Hannah in Wonderland - Request by themsgothgirl
Hannah in Wonderland - Request
:iconcrityesplz:

A request made by my friend Hannah, this is her as Alice in Wonderland. I had a LOT of fun drawing this, because I love absolutely anything to do with Alice in Wonderland, and I think this is the first time that I've really put any thought at all into the background and setting of the picture. I'd kind of like to edit it a little to have a photograph as the actual background, but I've never tried editing a photo into anything so I guess we'll wait and see ^^"

Materials:
    -A4 cartridge paper
    -0.1mm black fineliner
    -Staedtler coloured fineliners
    -Pencil crayons (WHSmiths, Crayola)
    -White gel pen

Nightmare (inked) by themsgothgirl
Nightmare (inked)
Yay, I finally found an eraser that doesn't just shred my paper and smudge my work :'D 

This is my OC Nadia (the hand belongs to her brother Aleksei). I'm not going to say too much about the situation right now, because I'm hoping to write a short story, which I will post on here, as my VERY FIRST piece of uploaded fiction 
:D (Big Grin) So if you want to find out what's happening, watch this space :P (Lick)

This is my very first time working with perspectives, so if you're going to critique, please be gentle :') I know it's not perfect, but overall I'm pleased with it for a first attempt, and it was a LOT of fun, I'll definitely be more daring with my characters' positions in the future :3

    -0.1mm black fineliner

No problem :D It's hard to find male stock images, and your poses seemed really inspiring, so hopefully you'll see some artwork soon :3

You're welcome :D I love the photo itself, but the title caught my eye because I have an extremely noisy cat, and I always think she's singing the song of her people to us all XD
