To explain my recent absence

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 21, 2016, 7:13 AM


For those who pay attention enough to my profile (why lol) you may have noticed a distinct lack of posting art, finishing requests or even replying to notes and comment all that much.
I have a very good few reasons for it, although I still feel guilty as hell for the lack of posting the art I owe and I assure you that this will be fixed soon (as in I'm spending this afternoon drawing and posting things I finished already but needed scanning and such).
As for the reasons: there's many. However they can all be placed under one umbrella term of stress.
I stress a lot. It's sort of a personality trait at this point. However things got out of control in the past few months.
I'm a university student and we currently have three huge projects on the go and next week I'm starting another one. We have to make a documentary, next week we're starting to make a set for stop motion animation, there's a lip syncing animation project, scriptwriting... I don't have much time to do anything beyond this, especially since the documentary is a project that could potentially be shown at a documentary film festival.
On top of this, I work for university as an ambassador of my course, so I work every other week at open days. And I still have my bar staff job, even though the hours have been cut down due to there not being that many concerts lately. That affected my finances quite harshly, so I'm trying to make do with what I have.
My health has been deteriorating because of the stress, which isn't good as I don't have the time to go to the doctor's. It got to the point though that my tutor at university has got me to book an appointment with the counsellor so they can help me manage things better.
On top of all this, the government is freaking my mum out and thus making me worry. We're EU citizens, living in England. We're not British citizens though although we have as much right to reside in the country as anyone due to the EU. However the Prime Minister is wanting the UK to pull out of the EU or have a thirteen year ban for immigrants to access benefits or government loans (including my student loan) which is a scary thought that is very real and would affect my life drastically. My mum and I are applying for residency, which includes an 85 page form to fill out and a ridiculous amount of other things, but hopefully I'd be able to get a British Passport after a year of having it due to my situation.
 Let's not forget the government also wants to go back on their promise with student loans that we can start paying them back only if we earn above a certain wage. They want to make it look like the American system, where you start paying back immediately and it's a set amount.
I just...I'm sorry for the whining journal, but I needed to post this. I'm extremely stressed and it's difficult to manage everything. Hopefully when I see the counsellor this week, I'd be able to get myself back on track. Well, I'm trying to do that starting with today and posting all that owed art. I hope you guys understand :/

guess my next gen is officially AU

PSA: Won't be here for a few days

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 24, 2016, 4:22 AM


Just about to leave to my parents' till Tuesday, cause my cousin and aunt came to visit for a week or so and I haven't seen them in two years. Then I have a pitch presentation for uni and I'm seeing Lazer Team Wednesday. Got uni Thursday/Friday, sort of a reunion with high school friends on Saturday. And I still will have to do all my homework in between all this.

So I probs wont be here. Will try to post art on Thursday afternoon and Tuesday too, as my step dad called and he fixed my scanner!! He's driving me back to my flat on Tuesday so I'm taking it back.

GONNA POST SO MUCH TRADITIONAL WORK YOU BET I WILL.

I'll still be around in the comments and stuff, but won't be able to check them often. If its something important, note me. I'm not taking my laptop with me so I'll just be on my phone.

Have a nice week guys <3

CONTEST RESULTS

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 6, 2016, 9:27 PM


*ahem*
I MADE MY DECISION. Bring back my...ponies. *Channels RuPaul*

Fillies and gentlecolts, it was an incredibly difficult decision to make. There was a grand total of 27 entries and I couldn't be more proud of all of you. The drawings were INCREDIBLE - all of them. Everytime I saw an entry I was like "This...this is for me? This pretty is really my OC drawn better than I could have ever?". It took a lot of contemplating and me changing my decision like 50 times, but the results are in.

Drumroll please!! *dun dun dun*

Rannarbananar


I feel like this piece really captures Asdis' character - she looks absolutely stunning in Rannie's style and I love that she's running and not just standing still. The movement is captured really well and the minimal, yet incredibly well done, background really compliments the piece. In the description it said this is outside of Rannie's comfort zone and I say hell girl you keep doing this because this 'outside of your comfort zone' stuff is on point!

Prize: 150 :points:, a digital full body commission, traditional full body sketch commission and a promarker commission!

Morning Glory .:contest entry:. by Tigu-kun
Both of the entries that Tigu-san did were truly incredible, but I adore this piece of Morning Glory! He looks so regal and reminds me of an angel in heaven. The art is on point, the background well chosen and the shading and highlighting gorgeous! I do love the little touches, like the lineart being lighter where the light hits him and his eyes are so expressive. So much work must've gone into this and it really has paid of!

Prize: 300 :points:, traditional full body commission, digital full body commission, traditional full body sketch commission and a promarker commission

Bacon by Amous-Anona

I have so much to say about this piece. Not only is it stunning (I mean just LOOK at that art style! It's so smooth and perfect and aah the expression on Sunset's face. Momma Bacon isn't a happy mummy. Not only did she draw this amazing piece, but in the description she wrote a short story about what's happening in this picture. Oh the glorious bacon puns. Check it out guys, I was in stitches! Clearly an incredible amount of thought, work and dedication went into this piece, hence why I chose it for first place.

Prize: 600 :points:, stained glass pony commission, traditional full body commission, digital full body commission and a traditional full body sketch commission!
