Midterms....*gasp*....they suck the life from me. Emerging now, on the other side of the storm, I want nothing more than to curl up and hide away from the stream of homework that threatens to overwhelm me. Cold, battered, disheartened, I draw my half dead body up from the craters of each test. Famished from the lack of creativity in mindless hours of memorization I cling desperately to photoshop and my tablet, the only hope of new life left in this dark world. Damaged, broken, but still alive. My heart beats tremble weakly against my palm as I reach for the USB cord and once again pick up the pen. The blue glow from my wacom slowly recharges my inner strength, preparing me once again to face the horrors that the professors devise.

Moral of the story:
Expect more manips and maybe even a drawing or two soon.

Hello all! I hope everyone had a very happy christmas...I  know I did...because I finally got photoshop on my mac!!!! And *gasp* legally! What a sell out I am. Anyway, I actually got it a bit before christmas, as my newer pictures probably already gave away. I'm enjoy this stuff again! I've loved seeing everyone's christmas themed pictures, too bad I haven't gotten around to that yet :/

Anyway, just a short update, I'm off to go attempt to body clip the fuzzy pony! Hopefully that won't fail too much :)

Ok, well maybe no one was actually waiting from me to dust off my deviantart account and do some more photoshoping, but regardless...I'm back! For now at least, until the reality of college life sinks in and I have more chem homework. But for now, hopefully I can be a bit more creative and such and give this a try again. After wading through countless "can I use ___ picture for my horse RPG?? lol" (the answer is always no, but I'm sure you'll just use it anyway...*sigh*) I have finally cleaned out all my messages, only to realize that my last journal update was from, er, two year ago. Oops. So hopefully a certain friend of mine can help me out and get Photoshop on my mac, which would really help seeing as I don't live in close proximity to my PC and that thing is an old piece of shit. Seriously...AOL is still installed on it. We no longer have dial up. Fail.

Anyhow, it's good to see that a lot of you are still active and creating stuff! Any old NSHCer's out there still??

Happy Holidays, you'll hear from me again soon :)

So I haven't updated this since last chirstmas!!! Ahhh! sorry guys, I know that I've kinda disappeared off the face of the graphic design earth, but I do have my excuses. First of all, I no longer have photoshop on my computer, which makes it kind of difficult to do manips, unless I want to use iphoto. Gross. So hopefully I can fix that little problemo soon and get back in the swing of things! Senior year so far has been filled with a bunch of garbage that the school makes us spit out, and I have college apps due soon (omg ahhhhhh stresss) but HOPEFULLY I will get back do doing photoshop stuff!!! so thats whats happenin in my life, hold tight and I'll be back in the devinatart business pronto

Hello everyone, I'm finally getting around to updating this, just in time for Christmas! I've sort of taken an extended artwork hiatus, but I think I'm ready to get back into the swing of things. Most of the stuff I've been doing has been random mane/tail drawiing, nothing too exciting, but maybe I'll come up with something finished that I like soon.

I've gone through my gallery and cleaned out all the stuff that frustrates me or I'm not satisfied with. Maybe that'll help me to just not get so mad when I look at what I've made and encourage me to do more photoshoping? Who knows, we'll find out :)

So the biggest update I have for you all is...NEW HORSE!!! Her name is Annie, and she's a 7 year old TB/paint. She's wonderful...gah I love her so much! I've got some pictures I've linked to below. They were taken on the first day I had her, and she she looks pretty skinny because her previous trainer kept her thin :( But she's feeling better and eating much more now, good thing!

i6.tinypic.com/80yn11w.jpg
I'll try and get more exciting pictures...like of us jumping or something :)

In the photo world, I'm going to join Rikku and Indrawn's new/old studio, Illusive! Anyone who wants to order pictures should check it out...I'm really excited to work there, and I think it's going to be amazing :) z11.invisionfree.com/illusive_…?

Also, I recieved a feature from :iconsphirux: in his journal here: sphirux.deviantart.com/journal… Thank you so so much!!

Happy Holidays to everyone...have a great Christmas or whatever else you may celebrate :) Happy New year!!!

so recently I found out that I recieved a great feature from :icondczed:, and also in the news article here news.deviantart.com/article/34…. I'm very excited...this is a great oppertunity to spread my work around some more! Thanks for supporting me, I have some new stuff coming soon, I promise :D

And I've been tagged by Aminata and Wings!

Here's Aminata's:
The first played of the game starts with the topic "6 weird habits/ facts/ dislikes about yourself", and the people who get tagged have to write in their journals about their 6 weird habits/ facts/ dislikes, and also state this rule very clearly.

Then, afterwards, you will chose 6 more people to be tagged, and list their names. But don't forget to leave a comment on their deviant page telling them that they are tagged, and tell them to read your journal ^^

so here they are:

1. I get really annoyed when people mass-produce manips...not to say they shouldn't do it, I just think there is real value in putting a lot of time and detail into a piece of work.

2. I will not eat at McDonalds. It is icky.

3. I hate it when people who train there horses to do stupid things (for no real purpose)...aka rear on command, paw the air for treats, ect. Guys, having your horse paw at the air does not equal a Spanish Walk in anyway, shape, or form.

4. Banana Brownie Ice cream in my favorite.

5. I am wierd and proud of it. Being normal and conforming would just be horrible.

6. People that smoke in public annoy me because it's not healthy and just makes everyone sick.


...And Now Wings':

SIX RANDOM THINGS THAT YOU ALL DON'T KNOW;;

1. Fact: I love running, even though it is one of the hardest things I've ever done.

2. Fact: I over analyze everything.

3. Pet Peeve: When people tap their pen during tests, or someone's snoring when I'm trying to go to sleep. Stuff like that. Annoying noises and are just there and wont' go away no matter how much you want them to.

4. Fact: I always wonder what people really think of me.

5. Fact: I'm scared of cliffs. Rock climbing would be a bad pastime for me.

6. Fact: I'm overly criticle of my art. I am almost never completely satisfied with what I make, unless I put a lot of emotion into the piece and get something out of it.

ILL LIST PEOPLE TO BE TAGGED LATER...I HAVE TO HEAD OFF TO XC PRACTICE.

...except not since the beginning of summer!

So I went to the High Desert Classic, which was my first A rated horse show! It was amazing, so much fun, all of the above. I just showed in the small small stuff, but Billie (the horse I am leasing) and I got Champion 2'6 jumper!

PICTURES: i9.tinypic.com/5y1yn9l.jpg Here's us jumping...no form critique please I know I'm jumping ahead >.>

Anway, then bend was over and it was very sad. And then I went to cross country camp for a week and came back and started daily doubles and am currently very frustrated with running.

I just got a tablet for my birthday! Exciting! And I'm over 2,000 page views :D

So this is summer. I've been sleeping an aweful lot. And riding almost every day. So things are good there. But I am also selling Tenny, my first horse and best friend. Being an arab/saddlebred and no exception to his breeding, he doesn't have the hocks to be a jumper, so I realized that having my parents spend the money to board a horse that can't do what I really want to is just a waste. Having to sell him sucks. A lot. And sometimes I dont' know if I really want to. But I know I have to, and like a lot of things I don't really want to do, I'm sure it'll turn out okay. It's the best for both of us...I just with it would end soon so I can go on with my life and stop dreading the day I have to say goodbye to my Tenny.

And my cat's dying. He's old...15...but he might have cancer now. They're operating tomorrow, and although i know he's old and needs to pass on like any other living creature, it's still very sad. He's always been fat, and now I can feel every rib and bone in his back. I hope he gets better, but I also hope he can rest in peace if it comes to that.

To get away from all the horrible things, I'm leasing Billie still and Bend is just one week away. I'm so excited...it will be amazing. And I'm very excited to ride my little Studling, Mar Far! Katelyn and Shannon know him, but he's a little 13hh pony, the cutest thing you've EVER seen, and I can wrap my legs around his belly sitting on him :) I'm schooling him for a younger girl who's taking him in *cuteness alert* the 18inch hunters! So adorable.

I just went to the Oregon Country Fair for the first time last weekend with Katelyn...haha so much fun. Where else on earth can you get offered a joint by a 12 year old and given a free CD by a fake taliban member in the same day? Well I'll tell you, no where.

My graphics...are non-existant these days. I'm going to stop taking requets and do my own stuff, baby. Hopefully that will get me out of the rut.

Sorry if I don't thank you personally for the favs...I have bunches of comments so I can't always reply to the favs.

I NEED A SUBSCRIPTION DAMN IT. Someone have a contest to enter maybe for one? <3

Thanks for all your love and Support!

&&So....
There are some things in life that are just brilliant. Let's make a list! I like lists.

First of all, my horse is pretty freaking amazing. So is showing horses that you don't have to pay for, even if they're slightly crazy. No matter! I'll try and update about the show when it comes...I'm excited!

Bates saddles are pretty brilliant. And Tailored Sportsman's. These things both are very very brilliant.

Wacomb tables are pure awesome. Even when loaded onto ridiculously slow computers with awkward photoshop versions (Elements 3.0...what's that all about???) with no internet access (and how exactly are you supposed to find photos...?), they still make the top of my list of brilliance in the word.

Features are amazingly brilliant. That's why I love :iconbitchinblack: for featuring me!!! I was pretty sorry I quit after my fish horse, but now that I'm getting back into things its good to know I'm getting *some* bit of publicity! I appreciate it so much...she's also a brilliant (ha, that word again) artist, so you should check her out.

Knowing what's wrong with my hip is good. Two stress reactions...hummm...bad. But still, now I know that it's not just an "acute muscle injury somewhere around your hip that may or may not heal." I hate vague.

Spring is brilliant. Warm weather is lots better than cold weather!

And those are the brilliant things happening today. Okay, time for a new word....

&&Updates
It's been so long since I've updated! Life is going on as usual, rough in most spots but there's always some bright patches. It's been depressing not being able to run - I just want my hip to not hurt anymore, and I want to know what's wrong with it at the very leasy. To cope, I've been trying to do more photomaniping, and it has sure taken some work to get back into the swing of things! I never knew how much repetition and practiced helped my photos...but some days I look at stuff I've done in the past and wonder what exactly inspired me and where I can find it again xD But now, FINALLY, I might get my hands on a wacom tablet in art class, if my teacher likes my manips. Cross your fingers for me! The horse is doing well, we've been showing some and I've gotten to take Conner, a warmblood from the barn, to a small schooling show. We did fairly well, and hopefully next time we'll have a few less issues to work out.

I might start back up at NSHC soon!

As you've probably realized, I'm on dev art hiatus. Honestly, I'm just on art hiatus for the past months and for some time into the future. Sorry about this guys...I feel bad for not responding to all your comments and not getting to try any contests :( I'll keep adding to my gallery slowly with some private requests, but not much more than that. I will be here to check up on stuff and clean out my account some, but don't expect anything new. I love you guys!!! Keep up your work...it always inspires all aspects of my life. <3

News

I bet you never thought it'd happen, but I'm back! Although probably not for long. Life seems to catch up to you like that. I will finally be able to get my hands on a tablet (if my art teacher ever actually gets it working) and then I will have more to show you all. But for now it's just going to be some sportatic art whenever I have time to get something out. I've been riding a lot more and working with different horses in the barn as well as Tenny (my NSH gelding). We're doing the Equestiran Team for our high school, which is party a joke and party to get him ready for do some hunter shows that I actually care about. He's actually pretty good at the gaming stuff, although I always feel bad getting him all crazy to go run around a couple poles for 20 seconds. His jumping is getting better, too, but his hocks have started to act up so maybe he'll get some time off. His breeding just isn't ment to be doing anything more than a 3ft course, if that. I still love him as always, he trys so hard. Track is starting, another thing keeping me from doing manips. I plan to be doing stuff for a couple contests and what not, so I'll have to budget my time and muse accordingly.

I feel like I've been away for forever! I've just finished whiping all the dust off my manips and unearching a thousand devinations and comments that have collected since I've been ignoring my digital world. Horse shows and school finals...they all add up. But hopefully I should be getting back to being able to do a couple manips, even more hopefully I'll actually get someone useful done over at NSHC. What a thought. Recently I've been exploring poetry a bit for my outlet after some inspiration from a couple of my favorite people, and that's been my current replacement for the lack of art that's been coming out. But it should get better soon...and I promise I"ll finish the black unicorn, since I like it more and more every time I look at it. AND AND AND We have tablets at school now!!! I've been doing more drawing since I have this stupid art class with possibly the most uninspirational teacher imagionable, but it still gives me a chance to do some more fine art and *cough* skip class. I mean. Not.

So things have been pretty busy latley. Finals are coming up and teachers are cramming in last minute units, making school even more hectic and stressfull than usual. Oh joy. In general, life hasn't been the best right now, making things even more un productive than usual. So in short, I'm not really doing anything usuful with my art for awhile. I've got a couple new things done, but nothing for a studio request. I just need to deal with me right now, and I'm thanking God I have an outlet for all this crap in my manips.

So I've been stuck at home all day sick. Strep throat or something, it sucks. I've probably slept more today that I did all last week. But I'm feeling a bit better, and I finally ate something at least. I hate how when you're feeling like crap school stuff still keeps piling up...I'm going to have about 3 math assignments to do and a bunch of explaining to my teachers...eh high school, so fun sometimes, isn't it? Now onto the good stuff!!

So this weekend I went up to Portland with the cross country people for Nike Team Nationals, which is the biggest race in the country. We ran in the open race so it wasn't any big feat to be there, but it was still an amazing experience...having the best runners in the US be right there!  Next year I'll try and stay injury free...I just have to keep my stupid hips from acting up.

Onto the horses. Tenny is doing better after his little lame spell when he wasn't able to walk on his right hind leg and we didn't know why. He's rusty on his jumping but we're getting back into it with some smaller 2ft courses. He should be back and in good shape as soon as he gets to the chiropractor again. And my newest horse project, Czarina, is doing great too! Hopefully we'll be able to compete and do well soon...she's so much fun to ride and I'm getting to know her personality much better now.

Off to do some more homework and then sleep...I'll keep writing in this as much as I can!

Hey everyone! Since this will be my first Deviant journal entry (yes, I finally decided to take the plunge and submit one) I'll include some info about myself. Maybe sometime I'll get a snazzy layout for this and update more often =]

|.Me.|

I'm a teenaged girl living in the US. I'm a decent student and love writing, although I could improve on my creative writing by practicing my prose. I run XC and love it, although right now I'm off of running with a hip injury. I have a six year old NSH gelding named Tenny, who I love to death. He's my best friend and I know him better than any other person. I ride a ten year old Warmblood at my barn too, and we're working up to doing some showing in the near future! I ride hunter/jump and have jumped 3ft on Tenny.

|.My Work.|

I do mainly horse related manipulations that have more conceptual than realistic elements. I haven't been doing much latley, but my two newest (Brise and Nightmare Studio App.) have turned out pretty well. I can do private orders for you if you like, and you can find out how to contact me below. I work with Photoshop CS2 and occasionally Elements, and have been personalizing for about three years.
