vote for my entry here: www.talentcall.com/competition…
! Though its not as good as it could be (its completely unfinished and rushed) please vote anyway. If I get enough votes, I will finish it and make it as good as I can, cause currently its rubbish lmao! If you would like to give me a boost in votes, you are able to make multiple accounts and vote extra (an account takes like 2 mins to set up) you can then delete these accounts after the comp.
I really really REALLY appreciate the help
Thank you ♥ ♥ ♥
This is the first piece I have done with an actual background, and propper digital painting almost the whole of it was done with next to no practice in these techniques too... So I take this whole experience as good practice and motivation to draw more. And thus, I thank the incredible shilin and Talent Call for creating this competition.
Also, in further support (if you like) please post journals on dA, shares on fb etc. or any other social media. Thanks ever so much again
xX ♥ Xx2013 Goals, Resolutions + etc. [Updated]
Hyo, Mist here!HAPPY NEW YEAR!
And how is everyone doing?
I've been pretty inactive and rubbish with art and dA in general, sorry for this. I've decided to change this. The last couple of years have been really stressful and horrible and I have neglected quite a few things like drawing and friendships. I wish to start enjoying the things I used to enjoy. Turn over a new leaf if you will.
Enough rambling! This year things are going to change, I've had enough bad things to last me 10 years so I'ma gunna change that!2013 Resolutions:
do these things!Goals:
☆Don't put things off, do them sooner rather than later and make them enjoyable.
☆Draw every day. Even if it's just a 5 minute doodle.
☆Gain confidence and (hopefully) improve with drawing.
☆At least 1 completed piece of art per month! 12 minimum completed pieces by the end of 2013.
☆Make up for owed art.
☆Walk more, swim more, weekly KFM, BMX more, more sit-ups!
☆Eat more fruit & veg and less biscuits >< Smaller portions!
So art wise I will update this journal entry every few days with what exercise/drawing I've done and perhapse post some of the drawings to tumblr/fb and the better ones on dA!

I will be completely honest... I have only done small amounts of art all month because I have beem unwell a lot on and off this month. So my only achievement for March is that I am close to finishing my Medusa piece. Obvs I am no good with resolutions haha but please be patient with me, I will try harder in the future, definitely.
Has anyone else got any resolutions and goals for 2013? If so comment it would be nice to hear!
