I just want to try as many new styles as possible. I'm not happy with my drawing, or why I'm drawing. I'm drawing all the time now but nothing pleases me : ( I just want to keep on going until it finally feels right and natural, and fun too. I'm off in Paris next week, drawing cityscapes. I hope I can develop my style as much as possible while I'm there : ) ♥

Sailor Moon Opening (English)

I only watched Sailor Moon once when I was little, and the animation style made me feel physically sick (I was a different person back then..). But I feel that if I had watched it, my teenage years would have been happy, and 'Sailor Says' could have solved every problem that may have arisen ☆

This is what I'd look like if I curled my hair and was a cartoon. As soon as I walked into class today, a lady in the second year started stroking and playing with my hair, telling me to curl it and cover it in roses. It was cool ♥

Photoshop, half an hour ♥

Self portrait time~~ ♥

I love drawing me. I think it's because I would rather be a cartoon than a human, and this is the closest I'll ever get : ( or maybe I'm just really self absorbed, idk.

Anyhoo, I'm starting to wander back into a more anime-style. Look, slightly sparkly eyes! And the style suits my hair. Or something. I mostly did this to practice my colouring in. I can draw, but whenever I get round to colouring anything it just ends up looking like bad GCSE artwork. I'm just going to keep on trying until I find a way to do it that looks expressive, professional, and just... me. I've really taken to acrylic paint and pastel pencils in my traditional work of late, but I haven't tried any new techniques for my digital work in years : (

Done in Photoshop, took about half an hour ♥

Aya Takano~ One of my most favouritest artists in the universe ever ♥ Such a huge inspiration ♥

"I want to fly.
I want to go to the universe
I don't want to me imprisoned by morality
I want to live in my paintings"
