I suppose I may as well keep putting some news on this thing. I am moving in August, I am excited as I will be closer to town and Luc won't need to depend on me for rides. I am very excited for this but I know that it will come sooner than I think.

I also decided not to vlog.. I realized I don't have time to sit and edit something. I know I would end up sitting there and keep taking takes... I don't even get that much time to draw, doubt I can squeeze in that sort of time.

All in all, excited to move closer into town <3

(Please ignore this if you don't wanna get to my personal stuff)

I have gotten to work too early again so I am on the computer and going to make a quick entry.

I have been trying to start a vlog, failed as I get scatterbrained as soon as I turn the camera on, afraid someone will hear or see me doing it.

Essentially I really want to make myself accountable for the next steps I am taking in my life. More pin pointed, my health and weight. I don't want to go over board by all means, I still want to be as happy as I am now, just healthier. I have found my clothes have gotten tighter because I have gained weight back from starting a new job. This is the first job I have had in ever that I sit down all day. This brings me to today, I am 27 years old, 5'4" and 308 lbs.

I don't want to buy more clothes...no wait I do... I want to be to the point I lose so much that I have to buy smaller clothes... so when I want a geeky shirt I don't need to go online to buy it. I can settle with the XL option.
I am currently doing what I can slowly to get to where I want and just need to continue from there.

My real problem : when I get tired I let things slip. This meaning I'll not watch how much is in my plate, go for seconds, not eat my veggies, not bother with exercise. The list goes on. I've done it before and I will do it again. I want to get to a healthier weight.

The trigger to this? We are supposed to go to Disney World in October of this year. This means tons of walking and rides and so on. I want to be able to enjoy myself, not be sore the whole time or feel embarrassed when I don't FIT in the rides.

I have pushed this issue away for long enough, and my posting this I hope to encourage myself to keep going.

Hey guys, whats new? I created a portfolio-ish da account here : :iconlisabellaire: which I still need to refine.

I was supposed to get a few hours this week and one thing lead to another and I had gotten a lot more hours because people got sick and what not. I was planning on working on commission pricing and examples and working on more portfolio-esque artworks. (which is all still coming by the way.)

Some good news, Luc convinced me to get myself a new tablet and I now have a Bamboo Splash. I think it may just be perfect for the fact the reason my other ones in the past have gone haywire have been for the wire. This one the wire is detachable. More expensive models have the option where you can buy a wireless adapter. Exciting stuff! This means soon enough the wireless ones will be more standard! Hurray!

Hey there people on DA, how is everyone? Not sure how many of you read my journals but it is worth a shot writing them :P

It is sad to say but my tablet is on the fritz and will have to have my father tinker with it to fix it. It has been a little hard to get over there and give it to him to tinker on though.. Luc just thinks I should get a new one, what do you think?

Also since my current job isn't giving me the hours I desire(or promised), I was thinking of doing some freelancing and commissions. Don't know how well it'll do but it is worth a try.

I have been trying to start drawing once a day, regardless of quick sketch or full out drawing and posting it on tumblr : jewelschan.tumblr.com/
I figure it'll keep me active and into the game as far as drawing goes. It is so hard getting back to drawing and letting it feel just natural when you don't do it for a long while.

I realized that I still hadn't done my art dumps since January ... and there was a reason for that. I forgot to scan stuff. Some months were busy and I had nothing to show for it. (Like last month..and March..haha) So I did what I had to and now I've got those up in my scraps. =3

At home waiting on calls right now, I can't wait until I get those calls so I can do stuff. lol.

So sorry for keeping everyone in the dark. Things kinda got weird once I moved out. I have a little less time to draw and do stuff on the computer now than I used to before. I do a lot more chores here and errands than I did before. I also went through losing a job due to stress and just finally, through putting out tons of resumes and going through a lot of interviews, a new job.

My new job is at a convenience store and I'll be working over night from what I can gather. It will take some time for my body to adjust but that is ok. I'll get to it. =3

I am still drawing even if I haven't been posting much. I still am in a drawing rut in the sense I have trouble finding my own style and trying to break out of anime a little too much. I will find time sometime either this week or next week to go through my papers to scan what I've got and actually upload some art dumps for the past few months.


If all goes well next month I should have up an actual finished drawing. I really want to get a few done now that I am getting back into it.

I am not dead, simply very busy with everything right now. I work a lot and when I'm not working I'm packing and looking for apartments. My room is becoming mostly boxes. lol. I've been doing a lot of cleaning, even finding things I've never scanned. I hope to draw more fun stuff once everything calms down.  =3
  • Mood: Tired
I've started to upload stuff again... I really need to upload better things but I think that exact mentality is why I put everything in my scraps and not actually upload pictures. I'll still be doing the art dumps at the end of the month, so if anyone actually likes looking at those, not a worry, look in the scraps. xD

I plan on doing more quick fanart pieces of more of my favorite characters. So look for that soon. =3

It is a little unreal on how I am now out of college and I won't be returning in the fall. Doing something all your life and then you step into the real world... always been a scary thought. I still sadly don't have any free time. I will be formatting my pc tomorrow and then I'll be starting my animation for a contest here in Canada. I'll have 6 to 7 weeks to get my lineart done. Its not too bad. I've calculated 30 clean frames a day to do. It will be nice to do some 2D animation again after a whole year of 3D. I'll be posting things from school and things from my sketch books soon enough so keep an eye out for that. =3

If you're curious of what I've been up to all year in class here is my youtube account: www.youtube.com/user/jewelscha…

There is less than a month left until the end of college... and I'm going nuts right now. So much to do and so much on my brain. Part of me just wants to sit down and draw...hah...that isn't gonna happen too often now is it. x.x;.... But yeah... still alive but busy as hell! .. Now off to work I go. ^^;
  • Mood: Cheerful

I finally got off my butt and uploaded my February art dump in the scraps and uploaded a lot to my youtube account. Reason I didn't upload anything before was that everything had a codec which youtube doesn't support... so now I finally converted everything and its up.  Go check it out if you like : www.youtube.com/user/jewelscha…


Right now I'm working on my 3D demo and in the background I'm slowly starting on a 2D animation using toonboom for a contest. We had to begin it in class, I figure why not continue on with it?

So that is pretty much what is going on with me right now... I never know what to write in these things...so bye XD

My birthday just passed a week ago and I don't feel any wiser. lol Things have been so busy in general that its been hard to just sit down and draw for myself. As is most of life is for most artists I'm sure. I've been struggling to find a new art style for myself as of late. I've got my teachers trying to get me away from anime seeing as I can do much better and it'll help with my future. However, having anime stuck in your skull for over 12 years, its hard to get out of ya. We'll see how that goes.

I've cleaned my room over the past week and its unreal how much of a pack rat I was. I am almost done now, only a few more spots to clean out and I'll be good! It had been years and years I had been accumulating things... now its amazing that I know where all my things are! Who knows, I might just do more paints and ink works. <3
Its finally 2011 and to me that means my Christmas break is almost up and I have to finalize a lot of my project ideas before getting to class. I don't see a big fuss about it being a new year... other than the fact I'm going to be scribbling over my 0's into 1's for the next little while. It happens to me every year. Nothing magical will happen because we change calendars. =P (Even though mine this year is of Simon's cat. <3)

I hope all of you got what you wanted during this holiday season, weather it was gifts, spending time with friends and family or just getting some good down time to do what YOU want.

I'm not sure what makes me want to write in here really lol However I guess just the fact that I see there are some people that read it, why not?

I've been busy with class as of late, of course. There is technically a week and three days left of class and I've got to finish everything within that time slot. I'm excited to be done so I can work on other things I've been tempted to do for a little while now. I feel guilty drawing right now since I'm not done my homework, go figure. So yeah, can't wait until I'm done~!

I haven't uploaded all my works this semester though, Ro has and I figure that I could just link them here for you to see. These two are assignments for testing sound synchronization and pixelation that we did in class. Both of these I've done with Ro.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYF5hD…
This assignment is the synchronization of sound where we were given a sound file and had to animate food to a beat.


www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvyu7G…
This assignment was to make a stop motion using ourselves, in other words pixelation. It was fun but hard to do the movements and wait for the camera to take the actual picture. At one point I actually fell into the wall at the end, even if we don't see it in here. XD Walking wasn't easy at all to do... I have no balance. XD


So that is it for now, I'll hopefully get my Halloween animation up on youtube once I'm out of class for this semester. =3 Possibly other things from class if I can remember to upload lol

I'm not going to sugar coat any of this, I've been lazy and not motivated to post things on here for a while now. Only thing that I've done today is clean up my deviations and favorites....feels sooooo much better.

As for lack of journals : I've got nothing to say and hardly anyone reads my journals. Those that do, usually I talk to all the time. o.O;

I have the "Team Jacob, 'cuz REAL men don't SPARKLE" icon that DA has implanted on me on this April fools day. lol Well could of been worse...could of had sparkle boy or lady Gaga o.O;

April is going to be one fast pace month. I have so much to do within the next two weeks before my finals week. I'll probably see more of you all after all that madness. ^^; *flee*

This semester is proving to be more insane than the last one. I've got homework coming out of my ears! All of which, you know, are alright but I'm not dealing that well with 3D right now.. bleh. XD Otherwise everything is fine =D I'm mostly going to end up uploading school things and The Den related deviations in the next few months.

My birthday is this Friday! My friends and I are going to go eat sushi and go watch a movie! I'll be 24..please...life don't be cruel *eye twitch*

Also, for my march break, I'm heading to Quebec with two of my friends. It will be an insane adventure! I might die in the process but that's OK! XD

I'm still around, don't you all worry. I do see all your lovely art but I end up being so preoccupied with everything else that I don't feel like commenting. By the time I do, the picture is old news and I feel embarrassed to leave a comment. I'll try to find the time to comment on new stuff from now on. =3

As for artwork... I want to do more stuff. However with my stopmotion animation starting to shoot soon and my 2D demo in flash to do...among all the other homework... it won't be an easy task. I hope to submit things here and there.

I'll try and keep you all posted! *assumes at least one person reads her journals XD*
