Valentine's Day Cupid Art WIP



Just a quick post showing my latest WIP for Valentine's day, or at least one of the pictures I'm making for Valentine's day. I really love how this came out since the style I made cupid is more roman inspired.

I wanted to do something different with showing my wips so I decided to add close ups among the main picture. The picture itself I feel is a bit too small but I needed to be a certain size to fit the blog and TheOtaku worldsite I'm on.

I have a lot of other sketches and wips I need to showcase, but till then thanks for looking!

Take care!

Where did all the cute lolita and kawaii blogs go?

I know I don't come here often enough. Especially after I said I'll be posting normally, but after I looked through the blogs I've subscribe too, I see a lot of my favorite blogs haven't been updated in quite a while. That or the person stopped updating and went else where.

Back in Action for Good


Hey everyone!

It's a new year again, I'm back and for good this time! I just want to play catch up and the things I plan for this blog.

The first thing I wanted to mention is where I was for so long. Basically, life and it's turning path ways, but it wasn't all in a bad way. Somehow in my long time of absence, I've learned so much about myself and my path in life. To keep it relatively short I have to create, I have to express myself and I have to be true to my inner musings in life. I know it may seem obvious being this is a creative blog at heart, but I had so many other thoughts in my head influencing my journey. But as time went on, my real intentions became clear, including that I didn't want to pursue The Candy Sanctuary as a business anymore in May 2012.

It was pretty scary because this was my dream, not a mere hobby. But at the time I was going through a real healing process, where all the old stuff I held inside was being tossed to the side. So the things I didn't really need or wanted was on top of that list, even if I didn't know it right then and there, I just needed to trust life. Which I did and it was pretty scary for the months ahead where I didn't have a real dream to go after. I of course had my passions but I didn't have that one thing that I really wanted to do for the rest of my life like TCS was.

However, in the past fall season it became clear to me the very reason why I'm here as a person and spirit. It is to express myself in all ways creatively. I was meant to create and it was like a slap in the face when I was that creative soul for as long as I can remember. But when it comes to life, it will show you how much things mean to you, especially when you don't see your gifts as what they are. Something truly unique and special.

Once I did see my creativity for what is was, my life took a big turn into the right direction and eventually made me change this blog into what it is today. And right now, I feel like it's finally the right time to come back full force without anything stopping me!

With that said, I want to fill this blog with all my artistic happenings, inspirations and just life in general. I can't say what exactly I'll post besides my arts and crafty things but I know it will be an interesting ride!

So I want to thank everyone that stayed and kept coming back when I was off on my life's path. I'm back in the game for good because I'm owing my art, my creativity and my life for what it is now!

Talk to y'all soon!
