Watchers

I am constantly stressed by the very little amount of time I have to draw/design. I have so many ideas in my brain, and I am very good about sketching them out in my little sketchbook (purse size so that I can take it with me everywhere without having to lug the big ones out), but I have such a piddly amount of time to actually sit down and put all my focus on making my visions come alive. I have to prioritize to make sure that I am getting stuff done at a (semi) reasonable pace, and I am not liking it. So, what I have decided to do is to finish the requests that I have left (2 I think) and the Disney Gone Fashion challenge, and then I am focusing on doing what I want to do:

1. Fan Art - Mainly DC characters, Labyrinth, Star Wars
2. Fashion Illustrations - I really love and admire this genre of art, and am wanting to improve in it so much, so I will be devoting a lot of time to it
3. Designs - I miss designing for me soooo much! drawing things that I would wear and clothes as a representation of my mindset and moods... 

This is not to say that I will never take requests again, far from it, I will simply have limits on how many requests, and they will mainly be around the holidays or in the summer. I will post journals saying when requests are open and they will be open for about two weeks before I close them.

Btw, these changes will probably be in effect around New Years, so you only have to freak out then :D

I am an aspiring Fashion designer and Stylist with a passion for real-life fashion, how real people wear their clothes as oppose to red-carpet fashion.

I love art of all kinds, though I confess, I do have a weakness for manga and fairytale illustrations. In particular Mercer Mayer, K.Y.Craft, Trina S.Hyman, and Jannet & Anne Grahame Johnstone for the fairytale illustrators.

My fandoms are Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Labyrinth, Supernatural, Once Upon a Time, Marvel comics, and Batman

Quotes:
"In the end, you have this acceptance of what life is. Life is not perfect. We are not all perfect. We are not all size 0 models. But there is beauty in the eye of the beholder."

-Alexander McQueen

“I’m about what goes through people’s minds, the stuff that people don’t want to admit or face up to. The shows are about what’s buried in people’s psyches.”

-Alexander McQueen

“Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.”
—Alexander Wang

Merida.
Belle.
Sleeping beauty.
Ariel.
All of the above are done, but who should I draw next? Snow White? Maybe Mulan, or Cinderella? What about Tiana? I'm quite stuck with the designs...
