Hello all, while I wait to see how that 100 sub poll goes I’ll show you the last piece of art I did. Unfortunately this one I didn’t know what I wanted to do after this initial sketch and line. I thought I was going to draw a landscape, but that felt too dull. I was going to draw an anime person looking straight ahead and make the left half a girl and the right half a guy, but it seems I lost that idea somewhere in the midst of it all. I may end up finishing it at some point, but here is a sketch/line of an idea I saw somewhere.
Today’s agenda is very lose because…
OH MY GOSH WE HIT 100 SUBS!
When I first made this website, I told myself I was going to become a great writer. I was going to post all the time and I would let people see my odd style for writing. Let people fall in love, or interest with my characters. I never really planned for my art or crafts to end up on here. I don’t even remember what made me try.
The idea behind Kanna’s Disguise was pretty simple. I was a young girl and I wanted to write and sometimes I wanted to write about people I knew. Instead of being dumb and getting caught when I [inevitably] trash talked them, I took on a pen name. At the time, I was around some people that liked to nickname based on the anime Inuyasha, and me being the short quiet girl I was, got the nickname Kanna. I didn’t see a problem with it, and well it’s kinda went with me ever since. Perhaps this name didn’t hide me nearly as much as I wanted, but it was my thoughts at the time.
Fast forward to now. I want to be a writer. I want to write stories that engage the reader and take them out of their current world and into another. I always felt that I wrote to escape, so I wanted my readers to escape too. Perhaps I take too long in my world creation or my character editing that I’ve gotten a bit away from actual stories, but I feel like I’m improving. Over the year that I’ve had this website I’ve had a lot of change with my writing and my life. Oddly enough you all have stayed, I don’t think anyone’s unsubbed from me, and I thank you all for that. I have many plans for this website and perhaps hitting this 100 subs was what I needed to light a fire.
That aside, as this is not so much about me, and about all of you, we’ll do a bit of a fun thing again. Let me know what you guys want! I’ll put up a poll here soon with the following:
-reviews of games/movies
and again THANK YOU ALL ❤
I managed to finish it! 🙂 Here is Sheena in all of her tsundere glory. I feel like the skin tone didn’t work as well as I wanted it to, but it seems nice enough. So here is the process, if you will
Top picture would be the finished product.
Bottom left would be the sketch and line work
bottom middle would be the cropping and cutting
Bottom right would be some enhancements on color and the beginning of texture on the skin.
Lines: pencil and Faber Castell- Pitt artist pen S
Cropping and cutting: paint
So I didn’t finish the color on one of my pictures… SORRY!
I thought I could finish it in time, but unfortunately I didn’t. I should be able to upload at least the lines/sketch tomorrow if I don’t finish the colors today. I’ve been a bit busy. Life has been, well as normal hectic. Thankfully it seems I’m catching back up on money issues that I was having, unfortunately I was having money issues about paying off money issues? Haha, ironic I know. Anyways I should be back on track soon, just trying to fight off this depression I’ve been having.
It’s strange for me to talk about depression so often. As a person who’s use to hiding what they feel, it’s strange to be so open about it, but I suppose it’s better than keeping it in. For anyone who has a depression problem, just know you can always fight it. You can always have better days. I know life is bleak sometimes, but keep fighting!
Plans for the upcoming month:
-Sheena art [lined and working on color]
-Demon/Angel art [in progress with lines]
-Thoughts on the world at the moment
-Anime Review: How to raise a boring girlfriend
-Anime Review: Your Name
-100th sub hype?
Hopes/May not happen:
-new background [hopefully]
-game reviews [maybe]
-hopefully a new story or maybe a continuation
