o_o Not like I'm dead or anything. I received a few messages from some lovely people asking where I was or if I was quitting Deviantart and all that. But nope! I am not. I have been fairly busy this year (2014...please give me a break x.x). Which explains my idle-ness on here and time shortages for drawing ANYTHING. My sketches now are becoming more unfinished, sadly xD But I promise I will do more! Also another thing, please feel free to give me feedback on anything in my gallery. I'm still trying to improve so any advice would be wonderful. And please! Feel free to send me any requests, challenges, inspiration, ideas, suggestions for a sketch you would like to see! (I should be able to reply back to you as soon as I can.) But thanks for watching me, favoriting my works, commenting, etc. It's really nice to see you all appreciate them since I put a lot of effort into them, so doing what I do on here is worth it. (Hopefully my works will get more noticed ^^. It's a dream of mine.)

A little Q&A!

I've been asked on what type of tools I use for drawing (didn't really expect these questions). But I do not use anything fancy because I do not have the money for it. All I use are 0.5 and 0.7 mechanical pencils. The brand of lead for the 0.5 is Foray (2B Hardness). This brand allows you to draw and get into the nitty gritty details. A con would be it breaks kind of easily (or maybe it's just me and I push down too hard). The brand of lead for the 0.7 is Papermate (12HB). I definitely recommend this brand for 0.7 mechanical pencils because it glides and writes so smoothly yet has the right shade of darkness. It's perfect for shading or can be used to accent certain details and make them dark and dramatic. A con would be the color would fade, so if you're drawing and shading intensely, expect the color to go a bit dull. For smudging and shading, I use mech. pencils and my fingers :D For highlighting, I use a pencil eraser.

Hope this helped!

Upcoming work: Tattoo design for one of my favorite tumblr blogs. She's going to be getting a tattoo soon and holding a contest, so I'm going to create one and submit it. Wish me luck!
