So, in my long-yet-not-so-long absence from dA, I've done a lot of growing up, soul searching and learning. As my close friends are aware of, I've moved from my mother's house (for reasons I won't mention) to my father's house this year. As a result, I've been exposed to the 'real world' and have been shown that it's an unforgiving, relentless spit of land. And as I prepare myself to move out on my own for the first time (I can't stay here for a couple of reasons, but let's just surmise it to be time) I can see people for who they really are; some cold and heartless, others kind and loving, truly. I've whittled all of my friends away to who I know are true, my family to the same-- so much so that I can't really tell the difference. I've got 93 'friends' on Facebook and I only talk to about 5 regularly; doesn't that say something? Anyway, long story short: reality has hit me in the face hard and it's given me a serious wake-up call. I'm my own person now, and I'm loving it. But that comes with its' own challenges that I have to overcome, and will do so with a smile on my face in the end. I may not be religious, but I do believe things happen for a reason; this was the 'push' I needed.
Anyway, not only have I been doing a lot of thinking on that side of the spectrum-- I've also been studying Graphic's Design which is why I've been really inactive on here mostly. It takes up 5/7 days of the week as I spend the weekends with my boyfriend, where drawing is the last thing on my mind. However, the end of the Semester is drawing closer which means I'll have some 'free time' where I'll be able to work on commissions (which I've of course not forgotten about), and maybe a couple of side projects (that is of course if my commissioners don't want me to? XD).
On a more positive note, I'm starting to catch up on TTG. They've pretty much all had me in stitches.
Also, I'm thinking of posting some of the work I've been doing for school here. At least it'd be something...? XD;

There is no limit per order, however, if you have a deadline you must be reasonable as your order may be in a queue (I will specify this before accepting payment).

Before finishing a picture, I will upload a sketch to my scraps folder to ensure the picture is okay for me to clean up and colour. I w
Please note that as I have other obligations in my life as of right now, commissions may take a little while. I'm really sorry but please message me if there's an urgency in getting them done (such as they're a gift, etc). Otherwise, I'll get them done as soon as I can. I appreciate the patience.
