Let's Go Sekki!
yes! at last I finished my Noragami piece! :D The Yato shrine in my room was sadly and ironically the smallest of my shrines (my SnK shrine is "Collosal!") so I just decided to make my own contribution to Yato's shrine! :P so I've been workin on this one off and on for the past few weeks, trying to get away from my habitual sketches and speed-paints :P

hey hey hey! I'm Checker-Bee (or just Bee :iconbeeplz:)

I have no one focus for my artwork. I'm traditional, other times I'm digital. One day I'll do work of my favorite fandoms, next I'm drawing a character from the stories in my head. Either way, I'm passionate about my art and have a great time creating it!

Overall, I love Jesus, my family, friends, fictional friends, and art :heart:

...and this turtle who I've named Ludwig :iconturtleplz:

hey hey everyone! I'm back from my lil unofficial hiatus! My poor drawing tablet broke AGAIN so I had to send him to the tablet hospital AGAIN, but now he's back and so am I!

Just finished my first week back at school (we start really late!) and my first week has been full of excitement!! I moved into my new apartment with my two lovely roommates (but I miss my roomie from last year, the lovely :iconlady-dragon-rider:! But she's over in Taiwan right now having adventures and being amazing as always!) I joined my school's Glee club with several good friends of mine, singing a solo as an initiation into the club. I've never done that before, but it was actually pretty exciting! I didn't feel terribly nervous but then my legs started shaking! no worries! I powered through it and now I'm working on "Pompeii" by Bastille, "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" and "Sing" by Ed Sheeran. I'm so excited! I'm stepping out of my comfort zone, making new friends, and getting the performing opportunity I've been missing since I graduated high school! :D

I also began my Japanese class this quarter and I'm looooooving it! :D It's been a long time since I was this excited about a class. I'm just so eager to learn all that I can, getting daydreams of going to Japan some day and teaching. Funny, I'm picking up this language a lot faster than I did Spanish. I feel like I've learned almost as much Japanese in one week as I did in 4 years of Spanish in high school. Maybe the teaching is just better here. Maybe Japanese is more my style. Maybe my enthusiasm is helping out. Maybe all three! All I know is I'm having fun learning again! What a great feeling!

And of course, I'm arting again! I have a few projects in the works right now, posting a few traditional sketches from over the Summer in the meantime. A lot of stuff from the anime I've been watching (FREE! OMG THE ENDING MELTED MY HEART!! AND THEN TOKYO GHOUL CAME ALONG AND SMASHED THAT HEART TO PIECES! XO) and I'm also working on finally designing my own characters. Hoping to fit in a few Halloween themed pieces as well in honor of my favorite month!

so that's about it for my updates! Sorry I was away for a while but I'll hopefully be posting more now that my beloved tablet is back and I'm surrounded by fellow artists and creative minds back at school!

おやすみなさい! :heart:

I really ought to read that photoshop manual  Dad gave me. 
My art is so dead when it comes to pretty colors. :/

if it works on photoshop, try adding texture layers to your works to spruce up the colors :D I only know sai, but you add a new layer with a picture (try searching "Texture" here on DA, there's a ton! :D) then set the blend mode on the layer to "Overlay" and wah-la! your picture has a cool new look! :D it really helps with color :)

Hey! I've just been catching up on deviant art here because my mac computer has been in storage for about a month because I redid and redecorated my whole entire bedroom and I didn't want my mac to get ruined and I hate using deviant art on my phone because it's annoying lol. But enough of that... Ive just been stalking your profile.. Amazing works!!!!! :) I missed talking to you! Send me a note sometime and tell me all about your life. :)
