in the border of the year

December is almost over.
i cant believe how fast the year has gone.

but is something good, time keeps going and one keeps learning.
i finished various commissions already (the once i mentioned in the last post) but i wont be uploading some photos of those for a while, the anime characters will be part of a contest, so i been asked to not show them before that date.
the watercolor in other hand needs to be sealed... or i think so. it seems that the spry i´m planing to use for sealing could mess things and change some colors :S. so i´m thinking on leaving it without it. you will need to take good care of it friend! (ill make a few other test tho. then ill take the decisions)

With Christmas and new year approaching i think i wont be able to work in to many things, but ill try.
ill be finishing a couple of commissions (a plushie and some artwork) and maybe ill get more work to do.

Also, ill be working on some stuff for my Etsy shop, some "sockadillos", some little fox-like creature that you may have seen before in my flickr, some bats and a few more things... maybe some aceos i´m already working in.

 well, ill try to work as much as i can these days.
also ill be adding some more links to the side menus, those are pages i really like with nice info or resources, or from artist i really like and admire.

hope your having some good time.
see you :)

To be finished...

With so many things i my head lately i haven't been able to come and post that often.
but i been thinking that it could be idea to come and show a bit of the work in progress.

Science Monday i been working on a new commission. another anime character.
i must say that searching for the right colors and textures can be a hard task, but is really worth the job. in the end you'll get a better appearance and a closer look to the original character. and thats something really rewarding.

some of the fabrics ill be using 

I really like working with all kind of  fabrics, and sometimes it can be completely messy. the fabrics you see above. those are really soft and cuddly with this fur length, but ho ho! when you cut this kind of fabric you cant avoid cutting the length of the fibers, so you end having an intimidating amount of tiny fibers floating around the place sticking to everything. believe me, you don´t want to breath this stuff, you need to use something to cover your nose and mouth or you'll end feeling like a cat trying to throw up a  hair ball yuk!  being my bedroom my workplace-kind-of-a-studio room i always need to have the vacuum at hand. i don´t want that stuff on my pillows! D:

Also i about to finish this watercolor painting for a dear friend.
i really like a lot of things about it, specially the fact that i been able to experiment a lot with it. I always wanted to do something with watercolors, also to paint something quite big and complex, and to use a wood base and not just some photoshop textures.  apart from my old illustration "daydream for a life" this one have been the most complex science i made the first sketches for it. i think ill go into more details about it when its finished and i post a good picture of it. i think ill do that after i give it to his new owner :D i really hope he likes it. i been quite worried, because it isn't a big oil painting with tons of solid  colors like the ones people usually hang on their walls. im not sure why but i decided to not come with something like that... my theory... maybe i don´t want it to call the whole attention over it. its like... like... when you spot something on the distance, something quite hiding between a lot of noisy things, and you get closer to try to find more about it. and you see it. it calls your attention even more. you began to follow the flowing lines and movement on it, the colors, the shapes, the story. its something quiet, something friendly, something that whispers.

hehehe i wrote all "poetical" again :P. i wonder how many art teachers will be all frustrated with the way im doing this jaja this isn't the way one should work with watercolor... i think.  ah well. ah well.

i do really plan too finish these two between  the 14 - 20. 

And sience once in a while one needs to get distracted from the regular works im crafting something more. quite small and not a priority to be finished. im actually using some tiny remains from other works i, ve done.

And the web? well, i been having some troubles with the web editor, and i can officially blame my computer, today i worked with my uncles laptop and what usually takes me 4 hours of work with my computer, on his it took me some ridiculous 10 minutes. now im thinking, should i change to another site builder-host or just be really really patient? lets left the payment methods alone.

im still on school, i need to work in this therm project. whoa!
see you then. until next post
ill keep working.

Website in progress

  For a long time various people have been asking about my personal website, and it isn't quite nice to say "oh no, sorry i don't have one" and give them my Deviantart account instead.  i don't have anything against DA but its always a good idea to work on your on web, specially if you can reflect your own art in the way you build it, and for  a lot of other reasons.
I been working on the idea of building a website for a long time actually, but i wasn't able to find a good place with good editing tools and else. i checked wordpress, weebly, freewebs that are some of the most recommended places. but to be honest, i really didn't like them. maybe i didn't expend enough time working on them. i think its because i once found a really nice web page before, it wasn't really good at the beginning, but they improved some various details and now i can work easily with it. also as i just restored my computer  a few days ago now its faster and easy to work with (i still have some troubles as i need to download a few more thing tho.)  " Wix "  is the name of this page to build website, just if your curious.
Also i think i´ve found a good place for hosting. So, the plan is to have a website up and running before August ends. this is something important as ill be back to school on the last weeks of September *Gulp*.

So. ill try to get a little more focused on this task.  Ive already made some drawing and illustrations that are going to be part of the web, also my traditional media works (like paintings and needle felted figures) will be getting more attention than digital. And i have a good reason to do this!  if everything goes as planned at the end of the month ill be getting a new and better graphic tablet!  lately mine has been failing a lot.  so with this new one and with my computer working faster (an with a better Photoshop version) im sure the quality on my digital works will improve.

some illustrations that need to be finished soon

And... hmm ill probably make a list of all the works i want to finish before the month ends. there are a lot of new thing i want to work with, but there are things i need to finish asap!.

And yay for new glasses! 
(they used to be white but...  hope the paint wont get scratched :P

ah! grate :3
