Once again, it’s been a while since my last update! I’m so sorry, I really mean it. Lately I’ve been going through some ‘stuff’ ( ˃̣̣̥ω˂̣̣̥ ) … mentally I was in a dark place where I almost gave up on myself and my artwork ‘again’. I didn’t want to talk to anyone, I had no energy and no motivation to do absolutely anything; I was being negative about everything and I really put myself down.

My boyfriend always stands by me and has helped me through this. I don’t want to go back to that dark place again, EVER!… I now feel motivated and determined to focus on what I love. I want to move forward and I will move forward.

My mantra “To fail is to succeed, we struggle, we learn, we conquer.”

I finally finished my sword icons. I changed quite a bit of it, I decided not to include the shield; I was becoming too fixated on making it perfect and ended up spending way too much time on just that.

You can check out these cute weapons up close here –> Behance I hope you like them, feel free to comment/criticize. I’m always up for improving my skills.

✧ Weapons Update ✧

Really happy with the way my weapon icons are coming along. I can see my Illustrator skills improving drastically (⌯⌅⌄⌅) …there’s still a lot I think I need to learn about Illustrator, but so far progress is looking good in my opinion. I decided to make a few changes to some of my designs, hopefully I can work with them better.

The Curse UI ~ Done ((⚆·̫⚆‧̣̥̇ ))

∩(︶▽︶)∩

Relief….

Finally finished creating some of the UI for the mobile game ‘The Curse’. There’s still so much I wanted to add to my project, I think I could have been made it look a little better, but I’ve been on this project for far too long and I’m getting quite bored now. I had fun creating the icons the most.

Below is one of the pages in the game that I re-created using Adobe Illustrator ~

And below is my version of the page above and some icons I designed. I feel like it’s unfinished. Maybe one day I’ll look at it and start working on it again.

A Year Later…

∩(。・o・。)∩

I cannot believe it’s been a year since my last post,  I don’t even know where to start… well first off, I still haven’t created my website (ˊ̥̥̥̥̥ ³ ˋ̥̥̥̥̥)

Soo much has happened since my last post, I had quite a lot planned; creating a website, creating new artwork and jewellery, vlogging. I also wanted to concentrate on my portfolio and focus on a career change.

So far I’ve managed to do one of those things, which is better than nothing!

Around February things at home just started to spiral out of control, I was in a bad environment; it was giving me anxiety, I became depressed… eventually I gave up on my artwork and nearly gave up on myself. This lasted for about two solid months… after this I was told to get out of the house, I found a job that I didn’t really care about and I moved in with my boyfriend. I felt relieved in a way, because I wasn’t in a dark atmosphere anymore and now I get to see my boyfriend everyday! Plus I could finally focus on what I enjoy doing most…

well…

o( ><)o

I started my new job in May and it was just work, work, work! I was working like a Donkey and still am. I didn’t make time to focus on my artwork at all. I work in a gym and I love keeping fit. Last year I stopped working out completely because I was trying soo hard to make my business idea work. So this year for the whole summer it was just work and gym, I was eating well, I was getting stronger. I was happy! Eventually I started to realize I wasn’t going anywhere career wise, so I decided to tone it down and make a start on my portfolio.

I wanted to re-design Killastrations; new logo, new artwork and new jewellery designs. I did a stupid thing by not backing up my work that I put 100% into and the day I was so focused on updating all my social media’s, and revamping Killastrations – when I plugged in my USB ‘NOTHING’ … I was so angry with myself. All my work was gone!.. I guess it’s not too bad considering I’m going to revamp it anyway, but I just needed it to recap what I have created. Since then I’ve been concentrating on my UI portfolio.

(ؑ⸍⸍ᵕؑ̇⸍⸍)◞✧ …I’m slowly getting there, I’ve found it difficult to balance shift work and focus on my artwork at home. I’m just always tired from work now, but I am making sure I work on something everyday. Even if it’s just 30mins colouring something.

I’ve created a page showing my UI development; I’ve decided to re-design a few UI in a mobile game that I play. I have struggled to concentrate on this project, I got slightly bored from it at one point, but I feel it’s coming along and now I’m really focused on it. I’m also working on other pieces like weapon icons, food icons and plants etc..

This is just a colour block of weapons, I was inspired by some of the weapons in a game I used to play called ‘DOFUS’…

This took me about five hours, but I’ve been watching Netflix whilst working on this which isn’t a good idea (^▽^)…

I feel more positive about myself and I’m happy that I’m back on Illustrator ∩(︶▽︶)∩  …I am thankful for my boyfriend and my sister who are the only ones who have stood by me and pushed me to pursue what I love doing most ~ love you guys ~ ♡

My next post will show my weapons with more colour and shading and an update on my UI portfolio.
