Newest Deviations

My gallery has gone through some major reconstruction over the last year- mainly due to the fact that I have finally gotten sense knocked into me as to what makes a deviation a deviation! More than just sketchy scribbles and referenced fan art (both of which you will still see in my gallery- just not as much^^)
I dump in a big mix of just about everything in my gallery- from fanart to family portraits and random craft projects to photography. But I will tell you this- it is never boring!! ;D
Thanks for taking the time to check it out :meow:

My Photography!

Nobody seems to realize that I do in fact, take photos. So here are some that will hopefully get more appreciation on here than they would stuffed away in some far off corner of my gallery!

Everything I Learned In Life, I Learned From CLAMP

1. If you're not angsty, you should be.
2. There is no such thing as coincidence.
3. Evil takes the form of four Japanese mangaka.
4. Everything's better in alternate universes.
5. If you're precious to your brother, you're probably doomed.
6. Actually, if you're precious to anyone, you're doomed.
7. In fact, you're probably just doomed anyways.
8. Treasure your eyes. You never know when they'll be taken away.
9. Subtext really does equal buttsex.
10. Everything has a price.
11. The most powerful people are alcoholics.
12. Never trust the bunny/pork bun.
13. True love always prevails. Usually.
14. Love comes in all forms.
15. At least you're not Subaru.
16. Nothing says love like agreeing to be somebody's primary food source.
17. If someone comments on your eyes being pretty, you will probably lose them several chapters later.
18. Even if you and your beloved are a canon couple, by the end, you still won't have kissed.
19. Even in other series, you still will not kiss.
20. If your grandparents are constantly on vacation, they most likely don't exist.
21. Never carry your most treasured item around with you.
22. Everybody has an evil twin.
23. Tokyo Tower is, more than likely, the source of all evil.
24. If you're good-looking, you're doomed or angsty. Probably both.
25. Don't expect to live a happy life. You'll only be disappointed.
26. The more they smile, the harder they fall.
27. Your fan base is directly proportional to how angsty you are.
28. Everyone is pretty, even when bleeding or in agony.
29. Torture and mind games are just another way of showing you care.
30. Your boss is bad for you.
31. The world is split into three genders: male, female and androgynous.
32. Blood is aesthetic.
33. It's not real magic unless you can conjure a two-metre-wide magic circle.
34. Flat strips of paper can reach the same speed as an F1 race car.
35. Fire doesn't burn unless the plot requires it to.
36. No matter how ripped your shirt gets, it's not coming off.
37. Men with black hair and glasses (including sunglasses) cannot be trusted.
38. Anyone who says having magic powers is cool could not have been more wrong.
39. It's possible to store two swords and enough clothing for four people inside the mouth of a bunny/pork bun.
40. Who wears short shorts? Little boy detectives wear short shorts!
41. Four leaf clovers aren't as lucky as they're made out to be.
42. If you're a character voiced by Megumi Ogata/cool/fan favourite/bishounen, you're doomed.
43. Hell, you're in a CLAMP anime. You're doomed.
44. Remember your dreams- they're the key to the plot.
45. If you can't whistle, "hyuu" instead.
46. If you feel someone's watching you, they probably are.
47. If he's tall, dark and handsome, he's taken- by the outrageously cute boy standing next to him.
48. Feathers have the ultimate power. Buy a chicken.
49. If your series is happy happy sugar-coated fairies and ***, you will most likely all die a horrible death at the hand of a psychotic clone.
50. Everything will be alright.
51. Just because you return from a journey, doesn't mean you'll return in one piece.
52. Everything happens in Tokyo.
53. Cute stuffed animals make the best magical servants.
54. Swords longer than your height are easy to manage.
55. Attack names/chants are more important than actual skill or experience.
56. Cherry blossoms are a sign of good luck.
57. Cherry blossoms are a sign of bad luck.
58. Cherry blossoms are- sod that, if you see cherry blossoms, run.
59. Even after your heart is pierced by someone's hand, you will still have plenty of time to divulge deep dark secrets/words of wisdom/angst/last words before you actually die.
60. Show your true love not by exchanging rings, but eyes.
61. No one is really happy. They're just hiding some dark secret.
62. Dressing someone up in cute but outlandish outfits, is a sign of great love and affection.
63. The easiest way to solve a love triangle is to kill somebody.
64. Inanimate objects have feelings.
65. Eyes, especially magic ones, are in high demand.
66. Cosplay is completely normal in Tokyo.
67. Love your parents while you can.
68. The general public is oblivious to strange/supernatural/inexplicable/mysterious events/people/objects.
69. Don't give your name to strangers.
70. Wherever you are, there is a Miyuki somewhere in the background.
71. Apparently, magic allows you to eat other people's eyes like candy.
72. Walking between a fence and a lamp-post will send you to another time/dimension.
73. Never trust shop owners.

2015 and Art and Wrist Injury

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 4, 2015, 8:14 PM
Hey everyone- long time no talk!

I'll just write me semi-annual update right now since I really am going to make a conscious effort to update my art more periodically this year (I've already uploaded 3 pieces this year! ;))

Unfortunately, my wrist has been very messed up from racquetball for quite awhile. I originally hurt it in June last year playing too hard in a tournament and after several visits to the doctor, prescribed medications, a brace and bandages, an x-ray, 2 months of physical therapy, and an MRI I am still nowhere closer to being healed or my wrist fixed. I have an additional MRI schedule for Tuesday in which I need to get dye injected into my wrist (since apparently there's no liquid in my wrist) and that should tell the doctor which of the two ligament perforations is worse and therefore, whether or not I will need surgery. I really hope not, but on the other hand I really don't know how they're going to fix it otherwise since nothing else has worked up until now...I haven't been able to play racquetball, video games, clean, write, draw, etc. without some heavy pain. So I've pretty much stopped racquetball completely (there goes my means of exercise) but I can't stop the other things because that's all I like to do!! :tears: I just sit and read Fruits Basket in-between soreness...:)

Anyways, enough complaining, but I'm preparing for another temporary hiatus once I get my final results on my wrist and go back to school at the end of this month. It's my final semester and I will surely be busy with work, my senior practicum, hopefully an internship and organizing the final two racquetball tournaments our team has. (I can't play but I am the President of the team so at least I still have something to do with the team)...

My current art projects I really want to finish are:
:bulletorange: A commissioned pair of couple's shoes
:bulletorange: A tattoo design I've owed a friend from school since last summer ^^;

Hopefully writing it down will motivate me more! I hope you all are kicking off the New Years in a productive manner! ;)

Zelda sketch~
So I'm trying to sketch more this year (while I still can with my injured wrist) and this evening I came up with a sketch that kind of looks like a mix between Tohru from Fruits Basket (must be because I'm re-reading the series :love:) and Zelda from LoZ. So I just turned it into Zelda and added the Triforce and Hylian swirls. Just accept the random sweater/knit scarf and wrist things...hah I was originally going with a winter theme ;)

Happy New Year Hand-Lettering by MoPotter
Happy New Year Hand-Lettering
One of my goals this year is to properly learn hand-lettering. I recently rediscovered typography and calligraphy and this is kind of a more doable combination of the two for me :) (I stink at typography) So I want to look up lessons and practice for the next couple weeks before I have to go in for another MRI for my right hand (drawing hand :() I very well might have to get surgery on it after that and who knows how long it will be before i can draw again! But I am desperately hoping it doesn't come to that ^^;
But being a realist, most of my art practice will be during this upcoming summer :)

This is my first ever try and hand-lettering and I'm quite proud of it!
If anyone knows any good tutorials or inspiration I can look at it would be greatly appreciated!

Happy New Year 2015: Tohru and Kyo by MoPotter
Happy New Year 2015: Tohru and Kyo
Happy 2015, everyone! Year of the sheep :love: i.e. Hiro (who I don't even remember...)
Just one of my several resolutions is (of course) to draw more (after seeing my pathetic Year's Summary of Art 2014*) so hopefully I'm going to go out and buy a new sketchbook and pens today as motivation :D

I'm re-reading Fruits Basket and man, if you ever need an adorable, romantic, heart-warming comedy to lighten up your mood, Furuba is the manga for you! I forgot how much I loved it [and now that I'm older I can read way more into the relationships which is a lot more interesting ;) (Wink)] So definitely give it a shot if you haven't had the chance! All the characters are so unique and adorable but Kyo will forever be my fav Heart

Draw This Again: Tohru and Kyo
It's kind of sad how little I've improved but considering I haven't been drawing anime/manga style a lot for the past couple years is my excuse :XD: However I remember being super proud of that "Before" pic and I'm only slightly satisfied of this new one so that's a good change really! My mum thought these were two completely different people (which is understandable because of the dramatic style change, but same characters nonetheless!) Hah it's also probably because I got too frustrated to continue drawing their whole bodies in the new one...
