Gohan Luvr For Life
Watchers, beware! lol You'll find your inbox filled crazy with photography I've taken with my new camera over a course of 2 months.
I've been contemplating making a photography account, because those who watch me for my artwork probably get bored with how much photography I post, and I have more photography than I do art on this account. I'm struggling to get a job, but once I do, I hope to start traveling more (if my truck can hold on for that long, God I hope so I don't want to sell it
!!!!) And once I go more places and have more subjects to take photos of instead of just my animals or poor, quick photos taken from a moving car, I'll make a separate photography account from this, so this can be just for my artwork and writing excerpts
As far as stuff in my personal life... Well, it's kind of all over the place. My grandfather's been dead for 2 months now, and it's hard to tell if I'm coping with it well or not... There's a lot of lying, back-stabbing, and toxicity going on in my family (what I have left, anyways), and my grandfather was one of the only remaining people in our family that made my mom and I feel like we weren't alone in the whole madness of it all. Now, we feel more alone than ever; we've both kinda been bumped to the level of scapegoats... Well, my mom has kinda been one all her life in between her two brothers, but with one gone/passed, my grandmother completely idolizes and babies her other brother and his son (my cousin), no matter how much hell they put her through. But I guess according to them, if anyone's at fault or ungrateful, or spoiled, or privileged when they don't deserve it, it's my mom and I, and that little false perception of theirs couldn't be any farther from the truth. My uncle and cousin (60 and 30 years old, mind you), live with my grandmother, don't have to pay rent, don't pay any bills and don't contribute to the house at all; and it's gotten to the point they are totally undependable even for doing things/chores around the house. They just go off and do their own thing.
Well, in all this madness, there is one light at the end of the dark tunnel. My "ex-boyfriend"/best friend from Wyoming is on course to visit here by October, and then he'll permanently move here to Washington to get a better job, go back to school, and work on our relationship. We unfortunately broke up (not mutually, may I add) because of the distance, time, and money; he was settling for what little he had there in Wyoming, cuz he was tired of just sitting around the house doing nothing with his life, and in going to school, we wouldn't be able to continue our long-distance relationship very successfully, especially since finally, after 3 years, it was starting to get difficult to maintain. Well, everything he tried to get accomplished for himself after we broke up never happened; any opportunity he had, the door was just slammed in his face, and he's been stuck where he always has been: at home, no job, no school, and nothing to look forward to. Now, he's been working his ass off, saving up his money to move here.
Around my grandfather's passing was when he finally started coming around and talking about moving here for real, after being broken up and walking on eggshells and pretending to not want each other for 2 years. In the weeks my grandfather withered away in hospice, my ex was the only source of comfort I found, and was the only way I found myself able to smile. I look forward to him coming back, I've missed him like hell, and it's nice to finally be able to have him again as the friend I had in the beginning, and the mate I came to love. Change is coming my way, and I'm hoping it'll finally be all for the better
Been working on quite a few projects; I am now as we speak. I've mostly been working on DragonBall Z pics for my fanfics, and even practicing with a new style for drawing DBZ characters. Don't get me wrong, I love Akira Toriyama's style, but these days it doesn't get any easier--especially since I'm exploring my style in semi-realism for non-DBZ stories and characters. The only problem areas I have are the face/eyes. So, inspired by a couple other great artists on here and their renditions of DBZ characters, I wanted to play around with various styles to see what I feel comfortable with.
I have been a writing mad-woman! Then again, having my computer out of commission for a month and a half will do that to ya xD
I am mostly focusing on my werewolf novella Lacuna Oneiric at the moment; chapter 11 will be posted soon, and chapter 12 is on its way to being done! My newest novella, DaggerPoint Grove, is almost into its second chapter and I'll be posting it on FictionPress.com as soon as I finish the first chapter.
What DaggerPoint Grove is a werewolf story (big shocker lol), and it takes place in Portland, OR. A 17-year-old girl named Cassidy moves with her family from New York to Oregon to live a quiet life away from crime and city life. But in the small town of DaggerPoint Grove, there is a family with a 400-year-old secret/legacy, and Cassidy just might find herself caught in the middle when a string of violent murders makes Cassidy's family question the move. It'll have more of a crime thriller/mystery to it than my other werewolf stories, so hopefully when I get it written and posted, readers will take to it
And to those who are following my DBZ fanfiction... I've totally been out of my mojo for my DBZ stories :/ Black Moon is kinda at a stand-still right now, and I'm slowly working my way to finishing the first chapter of LEGEND RISING.
