Ever After High, Money Magical Girl and Life Updates
As you can tell from my last post, life has gotten really intense lately. I won't get into it but there have been constant major changes in my life, externally and internally. In fact, there have been a lot of life changing decisions I've been making since the spring time.
Most of which I feel are the things I truly need to work on and foster in my life. I know that I've been focusing on my spiritual career, but that has been my biggest downfall in the last few years. Because of that intense focus, drawing and truly being my creative self have fallen to the back burner. Even when I wanted to downgrade my spiritual career into a hobby, I get wrapped up in the moment and lose myself very easily. However, I'm finally putting a stop to that intense focus and reminding myself that creating, self expression and art are my biggest dreams and desires. That is something I will never stop doing or get tired of. Even when things get rough, I'll still pick up the pencil and draw. :'D
Drawing is such a healing and expressive experience for me. I'm sad and disappointed in myself for letting it go for years without knowing it's healing and expansive experience in my life. Even when I did discover that self expression was the number one thing that I cared for in my life last November, I haven't stepped up to the plate to dedicate any time to it. I just kept going in the same direction.
I came to the point however where I realized that doing readings and that whole bit isn't what I want to do for the rest of my life. I have to change if I want to be truly happy. I love doing what I do, when I do it, but it's not working as it should and it simply doesn't fit in my life anymore. When I put it in it's proper place, a lot lower than my art and creativity, I'm sure it'll start serving me than blocking me from what I truly need to do.
In any event, I've started drawing more and have a lot of works for you all to see. I hope you enjoy them!
These are concept sketches of myself as a money magical girl. The idea behind it was about my relationship with money. Drawing this made me more confident that I'm able to make more money in my life!
This is an old sketch that I finally decided to ink in and finish. Though I'm not done yet, working on this picture really reminded me why I draw and have such a passion in it. It's fun creating whimsical and things of fantasy!
Lastly, this is myself in the Ever After High universe. I have yet to talk about it but I freaking LOVE that web series/doll line! Please go check it out, it's from the makers of Monster High! Since all the characters are children from famous fairy tale princesses, villains and etc, I based myself off of my favorite fairy tale, Beauty and The Beast. I wanted to be a descendant from Belle. I actually want to draw an official picture of this so I can really flesh out the details that I wasn't able to fit in this sketch. Doing this really made me happy. I have a feeling that I have a new fandom addiction underway.
I hope you all enjoyed everything! Tell me if you've gotten into EAH or have a favorite sketch from this post! Talk to you all soon!
