So, that's a good thing.  I haven't given up on my art, comics, or stories either.  I'm continuing to work on them but because I have continual computer issues, it's been difficult.  STILL, I wont give up. I'm plugging along and hoping to get going on a lot of these. I may have to simplify(coloring wise) my comics for the sake of putting out more. I have three comics that I need to work on.  The first two, Terms of Endearment and Glass Angel, are all drawn out.  The third comic is one I'm sketching out almost daily.  This one will be a long one but I hope worth it.  I'm thinking of uploading my comics onto a page specifically for the comics.  Hopefully it will be easier than trying to sort through my gallery to get things in order.  Don't worry, I'll link them here.  

OH!  I did a speed paint.  Granted it's a sloppy quick mess, like me, but you can see how I do some sketching.  It's not how I usually color, since I was in a rush, because I usually take a lot of time doing line work, shading, and little details. (The link I post below with the video is my Tumblr, where I post my art as well. Some works that don't make it here too. Feel free to follow me.) I should do another speedpaint again sometime soon but this time I'll be sure to do it properly.
BUT... I hope you enjoy it: venture-someplace-scary.tumblr…

So, yeah, I made a quick tutorial on how to make an inexpensive, light weight, tombstone for Halloween.
You can find it here: 

Other than that, things have been rough but I'll survive.  I'm still working on my comics and all that but I haven't been able to post anything with it.  I'll do it soon. I do promise that.
I'm excited about Halloween, of course.  Hopefully you'll all have a great time.  Let me know what you're dressing up as.

Firstly, I wanted to wish everyone a happy Valentine's day.  I've been a busy little bee. I'm currently working on the next page of my comic. It's so nice having my groove!

Secondly, thought I'd take a moment and post a survey.  Cause, why not?!  Feel free to do it too. :D

It's almost Valentine's Day so ask me questions.
1. Who was your first kiss and what was it like?         My first kiss, well, in second grade, I got in trouble for kissing a girl.  Though, my "technical" first kiss was with Leif, who I married later.  It was in a cemetery, in the middle of night.  We were stargazing.
2. Are you in a relationship?               If so, are you happy?  Yes, I'm in a relationship. I'm happy.
3. Do you have a crush?  I always have crushes.  
4. Who is your crush?    Most are fictional characters.  
5. Are you a virgin?         Hahaha, NOPE!  I do have a kiddo after all.  You can visit & friend her here :iconsevystorm:
6. What do you think of Valentine's Day?  I think of all the times I didn't get Valentine's in school. :(  I also think of how it was my parent's anniversary.
7. Who is your Valentine?        No one.  
8. Have you ever asked anyone out?  Nope.
9. Who is your celebrity crush?  Alan Rickman and a few others.

11. Do you think anyone has a crush on you right now?      I don't know.  
12. What is your favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day?   Eat sushi.
13. What's the best Valentine's Day that you've had so far?      Best? I can't think of anything that stands out.
14. What's your idea of a perfect date?    Traveling and exploring new places and eating new foods.
15. How do you know when you're in love?      When I feel happy just laying next to the person with me.
16. Have you ever loved someone on a romantic level?   Yes.
17. Do you prefer more or less clingy relationships?    How about a happy middle ground.
18. Do you feel like you're loved on an everyday basis?     Yes.
19. Are you usually the first person to make a move.     No.
20. Have you ever asked someone out and they turned you down?   No.
21. Do you feel like you're the dumpee or dumper most of the time?    I've never experienced either.
22. What's your "type"?   Cute redheaded girls, lovely whispy women & girly guys.
23. What are some of your favorite physical characteristics for your crush to have?  Striking eyes.
24. Are you a hopeless romantic?  Absolutely.
25. Do you think that you're a good kisser?   I think I am. :D
26. What's the farthest that you've ever gone?    All the way... every way.
27. Have you ever had a secret admirer?    Yes.
28. Have you ever been someone's secret admirer?   Nope.
29. Do you have romantic fantasies? If so, what are they like and who is in them?   I usually make my fantasies come true. ;)
30. What's something that always turns you on?    Someone romancing my mind and not just a physical relationship.  How about a super romantic movie and cuddles?  Let me know I am loved and wanted.

Things have finally been slowing down, enough for me to get some time for myself. I can't believe it's been almost a year, or more, since I've been able to draw. Which sucks!  It wasn't a lack of wanting to draw, that's for sure!  One thing that kept me from getting anything accomplished was my tablet died. :(  Then, of course, my computer decided to become a dinosaur.  I have most of it under control and it helps that I got a new tablet for the holidays! YAY! :boogie:

I submitted a preview of a drawing that I am working on.  It's in my scrapbook. Enjoy.

Yes, that's me!

I've created a group on Facebook for happy Goths like me so that we can talk, share and have fun!

Here's the description:

"Let's face it. In this day and age people are confused by the technical term of Goth.

Not all Goth's are the stereotype that's perpetuated out there. Some of us enjoy and embrace the culture yet still love cute things and being happy.

We are not emo, we are not self destructive and we aren't easily categorized. We are the Happy Goths and we truly enjoy all things life has to offer us but we can enjoy it in our own special way.

A picnic in a gorgeous cemetery? Sure! Visually dark but can laugh as loud as anyone in the fairgrounds? We can tell a ghost story on a sunny day and still give chills one moment then go play in the sand with the kids. So smile and join us here where we can share recipes, stories, company and ideas. "

The group is called: The Happy Goth Society.   Go ahead and look it up.  Join if you want.  I'd love to see you there.

Stolen from :iconskellagirl:


Few artists are man/woman enough to openly answer any and all questions thrown at them. Are you? Prove it. Copy/Paste this as a new journal entry and answer every question you get.

The rules are simple:

-You must answer every question you get no matter what it's about and you must do so honestly.

-There are no questions that cannot be asked as long as they are within the rules of DA. They can be personal, about OCs, and every thing in between.

Think of it as a truth or dare of sorts, only without the dare option.


GRRR I AM WOMAN ENOUGH. LET'S DO THIS.

Another Preview with Lydia by ForeverKnight

So, yeah, I'm sketching at the moment. That's the preview above.

I'm hoping to get things moving on the comic or at least get some drawings done.  My scanner has not been a very cooperative fellow so I'm just going to have to try to do what I can without scanning.  It makes things difficult when it comes to the comic. I have many pages drawn out but I need to scan them.  I will figure out something.

Here's hoping I'll get more time to work on drawings.  Shortly I'll be taking a break to enjoy this warm weather and the sounds of the cicadas.

Life sure has thrown me curve balls left and right in my life.  I thought I would update my journal so you all know where I'm at.

I've gone through some really tough times but I can see the light at the end of tunnel.  Hopefully my art will back and I'll be on a roll.  

Life is good now and I'm hopeful for the future. ♥

These lyrics from Ayumi Hamasaki's song Beautiful Fighter fit how I feel:

I wonder
About what time I noticed
That a fairy tale is no more than a fairy tale

And regrettably
Everyone knows
That there is a rather surreal ending

You aren't on a white horse at all
(Listen to the music)
How easygoing you are as ever !

We are Beautiful Fighters
To be honest
There are some terrible days
But the girls who live
Without stopping nor giving up are
Beautiful Fighters
The unhealed wound
Sometimes opens
But shuts again in time

I feel
The glass shoes must be too delicate
To run through this age

If they fit just right, just maybe...
(Never stop my dancing)
How easygoing and alike we are !

We are Beautiful Fighters
We cried tonight
Just a little
But the girls who fight with the tomorrow
That is new and clean are
Beautiful Fighters
For we know
Our desires are
Never satisfied completely.
