Art is just a side hobby, but I take it very seriously; from 8.5x11 to here =) Yes, the backgrounds are my own




I am really bad at sticking around you guys. Does anyone really even use this site much anymore or has it all moved to tumblr? 
Hey guys! Been a while, I daresay. Only errr...2 years or so, ironically almost exactly! I'll take is as a sign. A few things to say...

I'm returning!...No, For Real This Time!
The last 2 years I have really let go of deviantart for other hobbies, but I've always looked back it it fondly, missed it even. I feel like it's time once again to take up the mantle and do what I used to do. Anime, of course! Get ready, 'cuz I will aim to start something this weekend and have it up by next! Goal...set! I will be re-subbing as soon as the page stops refusing to load...*ahem* 

The Last 2 Years & College
I'm graduating from college in May. It is very, very exciting. As it turns out, after a whopping 4 major changes over 5 years, I landed with a major in what I truly learned I loved best- Japanese and Asian Studies! I took Japanese classes up to 399 level so I consider myself pretty set in that category. I learned so much about japanese history, religion, language and culture in that time. My main goal after college is going there, and I aim to make it happen. 

Are You Ready? I am! If I need to know anything important that changed in the last 2 years about the site I would really appreciate it if people let me know. Thanks!

Photobucket^ You said it, Ichigo <3

-Born in Russia, Living in America, Dreaming of Japan

In the shadows, lurking here, stalking there, watching waiting...yes, because darkness does reside here...

A Bit About...
- I draw my subjects with a mechanical pencil, then lineart and color in Photoshop Elements
- It takes a looong time to do my art >.< Like 10 hours minimum...
- I am always experimenting and trying to get effects and learn new techniques
...but at the same time, cannot take critiques well cuz I critique them a lot myself, and that is hard enough...
- I have a certain curiosity about the people who come to visit me...if you find me or fave me, I always wander onto your page
-I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to straightness, spelling and sometimes perfection in general

I like Bleach, *Byakuya*, japanese dramas and fanart.
I dislike One Piece, dubbed anime, chibis and do not understand cosplay.

Current Residence: U.S
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Alternative, Trance/Techno, Japanese rock/pop, and ANIME soundtracks/OPs/EDs! =D
Favourite style of art: anime, my own
Operating System: HP Laptop & Windows Vista FTW..don't laugh XD
Wallpaper of choice: Byakuya-sama <3
Favourite cartoon character: its ANIME, and it should be obvious =)
Personal Quote: "The hell's this shit?"
