Hi everyone!

First of all, I want to apologize for my absence. I've been gone for so long that everything on DA seems so foreign to me, as there have been way too many changes to count. Also, I know a lot of you have been waiting for me to post something new and I feel horrible for not following through. I'm a little disappointed in myself as well as I had set a goal for myself concerning the number of pieces I'd have loved to complete this year, which I'm quite certain I won't be able to reach now haha. I'll certainly try though. I'm hoping to post something soon. So please bare with me.

On another note, I want to thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes. I particularly want to thank:

:iconsarahturner: :iconmapame: :icondestroyer77::iconadin-softa: :iconninthlife: :iconaurelia-acc: :iconspringerhope: :icondaydreaming-aurora: :iconcherishubii: :iconfurryknight:






for personally wishing me happy birthday on my profile.  Please take the time to check out their lovely galleries! :) I also got a 3 month subscription from an anonymous deviant and let me tell you, it definitely made my week! I really appreciate it, who ever you are. I wish I knew you as I would've loved to thank you personally also.  I hope you get the chance to read this journal so you can understand the magnitude of my appreciation. Thank you!!!

With that being said, I want to say hello and thank you to all my new watchers as well as the old. Thanks for sticking with me!

:heart:
Joelle

Tumblr ideas


Hey all,

So I've decided to create a tumblr account because I felt there were things that I wanted to share with you all but I cannot share them in their entirety on deviantART. Basically, I plan to post the following on my tumblr account:

*Photography that I do not post on deviant art

*Unfinished drawings that I might try to finish sometime in the future, and there are a lot of them. If that interests you then follow me to view them lol

*Video responses to questions that you all may have. Ask me questions and I'll answer them on video. It does not necessarily have to be about art. You can basically ask me anything. You can note me your questions, ask me via formspring me or facebook, or ask me on tumblr. (look at the top of my journal to get the links to the above websites)

*Video documentation of Tutorials that I plan to make in the future.

*Video documentations of me doing things that I love doing. For example: dance, playing the  guitar etc.  (I just thought it would be fun to add this)

If you were to add me now, my tumblr account might look a little bare. I think I only have one video up right. But I'm working on that now. Also, I'm trying to think of other ideas to add to this list so if you all have any suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks!

Joelle :heart:

Summer dream


Hey all,

It's been a while hasn't it? I've definitely had a busy summer and it was all for the better I think. I had sooo much fun hanging out with family and friends and just relaxing after a stressful semester at school, and honestly, I think that was what I really needed to get back into the gist of things, you know? Last semester was definitely a hard one. I had no break from school and no time to get a job because of school. I was taking classes that were very challenging for me and all the while I was trying to make sure I passed with a high grade. So because of that, I couldn't find the motivation to do much else but study. I kept thinking I was just lacking the inspiration to start a new drawing, but I was also lacking the motivation as well. So after having the opportunity to travel around to different states with the people I care for most, I'm ready to start anew :boogie:

So, I have a new love (not a boy...sadly :la:). It is actually a TV show...possibly the best TV show of my generation! Not really...but it's pretty damn close. It's called Merlin. Now I'm sure you've all heard of the Arthurian Legends, as well as the Disney classic, The Sword in the Stone. Well this TV show is obviously based on both stories. However, in the above stories, Merlin is a wise warlock with a long beard and a pointy hat, whereas the Merlin in this show is young and not so wise (yet). Also in this TV show, the king of Camelot (Arthur's father) has banned all forms of magic, thereby separating the land of Albion. Merlin's job is to help Arthur become king of Camelot which will evidently bring unity to the lands of Albion.  It's a great show filled with comedy, magical beings, romance, and action, and I am ADDICTED! It also doesn't help that prince Arthur is possibly one of the most handsome men I've ever laid eyes on...like seriously! Here have a look if you wish (fc04.deviantart.net/fs51/f/200…;

Anyway watching Merlin has somewhat increased my motivation to travel to England next year as it is a British show. I've always wanted to go, but now it's definitely a must. So at the moment, I am making plans to attend a university in London for a semester. I plan to take basic courses for experience purposes...nothing too stressful. With that being said, are any of you from England? I love British accents. I recently spoke to my niece in London a few days ago, and I was soo jealous of her accent!

Alright enough rambling. I think I shall end this journal with some thank you's to my watchers and those who have faved/commented on my work. I really do appreciate your support! :heart:

Uninspired much? Chance for a feature

Inspiration search and Chance for a feature


Hey all,

I know I haven't exactly been active when it comes to traditional art. And I want to apologize to all my watchers who want to see something new from me. But I've completely lost inspiration. Of course this has a lot to do with all the school work I have to do, and just not having enough time for anything else. Though despite not having enough free time, I should at least still feel like lifting a color pencil every once in a while. I just feel terrible because I feel like I'm letting a lot of you down.

So here is an idea I came up with:

*I would like to get some ideas from you all as far as what you would like me to draw.

*It could be an object or a person

*It could be a picture of you or just someone you want me to draw (flowers, candy, stuffed animals, celebrities, characters from a cartoon... things like that).

*I just need the name of the person, or the link to the image.

*If I get inspired by your suggestion, I'll post a new journal stating what that inspiration is as well as FEATURE several deviations from the gallery of the person who suggested it.

Does that sound like a good idea? I hope you all participate, as I have obviously ran out of ideas.

Thanks!

Wow so I totally can't even remember the last time I wrote a journal. I've been soo busy and never had much of a chance to come on deviantart...let alone reply to all your comments (which I appreciate greatly by the way). So if you leave me comments, you may notice that it takes me a while to reply but I try to reply to every comment I recieve. My subsription ran out and I didn't even notice. Oo;

I've posted a WIP to the piece I'm working on at the moment and I'm definitely trying to find time to finish it.

Anyway, so it's celebrity look-a-like week and I was wondering if you all could help me out. What Celebrity do you think I resemble?

Also, have people ever told you you looked like a celebrity? Who? If not, what celebrity do you think you look like?

Happy birthday to me!+ my absence + costumes any1?

Hey guys!

So I turned 21 today, and I don't feel any different. I'm slightly richer today than I was yesterday though. I guess that's a plus :D

Anyway, I've been trying to find time to do some traditional art, but let me tell you, it's almost impossible. I don't even have the time to do photography that does not have to do with school. All the photos I've posted so far are part of a project for my photography class. I feel terrible because I had planned to post a traditional piece today, but I could not find the time to finish it. I will make you all a promise though...I'll post something traditional before the end of November. I know it's a long wait...but with all the school work that I have to do, I honestly have no time to do more than that. So please bare with me.

Now that that's over with, what are your plans for Halloween? What are you all gonna dress up as? I still have to go get my costume.

Bug bite + Cowboy bebop anyone?

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 28, 2009, 1:10 PM
  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: The A/C (it's sooo hot today!)
  • Reading: the journal I just wrote
  • Watching: tv

So yesterday a couple minutes after I posted my newest deviation, I was bitten by a bug on my neck. I thought it was just a simple ant bite so I didn't think much of it. Though it did hurt a little more than an ant bite. Anyway I kind of disregarded it as I could not find any bumps or what not around the area. About 15 minutes later, I got quite dizzy and and my vision became blurry. Then I began experiencing loss of breath, thus I started to panic. My sister was with me at the time and she called the police department who alerted the paramedics, and I was later rushed to the ER. To make a long story short, I was bitten by a bug which resulted in an allergic reaction, and the fact that I was bitten on my neck did not make matters any better. So all in all, I'm home now. I still feel rather dizzy and my body is not a 100 percent, but I think I'll be fine in a day or two. It was a pretty scary experience.

Now that I'm done with that, I wanted to ask you all if you're familiar with the anime, Cowboy Bebop. If you are and you are as infatuated with the show as I am, you'll be happy to know that they are coming up with a live action movie for it. And it is said that Keanu Reeves will be playing Spike. I was so excited, but I am a little worried that the movie will not do the show justice. Anyway, what are your thoughts on this?

It Don't Matter If You're Black Or White.

I strongly live by this powerful message, and it comes from one of my favorite songs by none other than MJ. I was drawn to tears when the news was confirmed about Michael Jackson's passing. Even now, I shiver as I write this journal. He was such an inspirational artist and the idea of him passing away is difficult to swallow. My whole family is in mourning and we are saddened to think of what is to become of his children. My brother particularly is a huge fan of Michael. He's a great entertainer and loves to impersonate those Michael moves. Here is a youtube video of my brother doing what he loves best www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvSyKM….

I wanted to share with you all a few of my favorite songs by Michael, and if you'd like you can also share with me song of your favorite songs by Michael as well as stories and your experiences you've had.

Black or white
Thriller
Beat it
Remember The Time
In the Closet
Dirty Diana
Give into me

SUMMER FEATURE!

Oh and I thought it would be appropriate to do a summer feature whenever I have the time again. So if you have anything that fits with the theme of summer or the color yellow, post it in this journal (no more than 2 deviations per person please). I’ll feature the first 15 people who post their deviations to be featured.

Hey guys,

How’s the summer coming along? I just thought I would update you all on a few things.  First of all, I’m not at home at the moment and I won’t be at home for some time. I should be home after July 25th.  This means I cannot post any traditional art aside from the piece I’m working on for :icongabbyd70: ‘s contest gabbyd70.deviantart.com/journa… .I am a very clumsy person by nature, and I have a tendency to lose things. So I only took with me the necessary materials I’ll need to complete my 2nd entry. I will however be able to post some photography as I took my camera and my laptop so I can take a picture of my entry and submit it before the deadline of July 11th.  

With that being said, I’ll be in Huntington Beach, California after the 4th of July, so if anyone is around the area and would like to meet up, let me know :)

Hey guys,

So, here is my take on Twilight. I loved the series and I think I always will. From the very moment my cousin introduced the first book to me to now. However, I just don’t think the movie did the book justice. First of all, I don’t think the acting was that great. I felt it was a little obvious that Rob (Edward) and Kristen (Bella) were somewhat new to the acting business and that is normally something that you don’t want your audiences to notice. Then there were the special effects, which were not that great either. Now before you all bite my head off, I think that Rob and Kristen are definitely great choices when it comes to character resemblance. They just scream Bella and Edward. So I’m hoping that New Moon will be a little better as far as acting and special effects go. I’ve said my part, and while awaiting any responses or comments that you’ all might have, I shall go hide somewhere o.O;  :D

Hey guys,

I hope the summer is treating you all well. And I wonder if you're all roasting in the summer heat like I am here. In the summer the average weather temperature in Arizona is above a hundred degrees Fahrenheit. So just out of curiosity, how hot does it get in the summer where you live?

Hey guys,

So I'm officially done with school for this semester! :D And for those of you wondering, yes I did keep my A, Yay!

Anyway, if you have facebook, you're probably familiar with that quiz which asks you to pick your top five things depending on the topic. I just recently did my top 5 celebrity crushes and I was just a little curious to know who you all will choose.

So with that being said, who are your top 5 celeb crushes?

Mine are Tom Welling, Justin Hartley images.smallvillesiteweb.com/s… , Raja Bell (former PHX Suns Basketball player. Hey plays for the Bob Cats now :()cache.daylife.com/imageserve/0… , Brad Pitt, XD and Don Lemon (Yes, he is the CNN Anchor guy. What can I say? I love to watch news :D) orvillelloyddouglas.files.word…

FEATURE!!!


Don't forget. I'll feature you if you catch my 10,000th page view and send me a note with the screen shot. I know there are some occasions where, more than one person catches the same number of page view. I have no clue how that happens(it happened last time) but I will only feature the person who notes me first.


____________________________________________


Lastly, thanks to all of you who have taken the time to comment/fav/watch me. I really appreciate it, and I wouldn't be on  DA without your support.

Much love

Hey guys,

Alright so today was my last day for finals. I only had to take one test as I was exempt from all my other classes. Though The test I took today had three parts which we started last week. Now I'm basically on edge. What annoys me is the fact that I am borderline A, and getting a B on the final might drop me. I hate this feeling!

I really appreciate it and you all definitely helped to lift my spirits! ^_____^ I'm definitely back to my normal smile everyday self. So I thought I would share some things with you all :)

* I'm the youngest of 5 brothers and 4 sisters, one of which is on DA! But she hasn't posted anything in years! See?  :icongieselle:
If you visit her account, tell her to post her recent stuff! It's so good!

*My family is big on performing arts



My brother and I. He does hip-hop/break dancing/ pop n lock. He also used to teach at a dance studio owned by his friend. I do Jazz/lyrical/contemporary :)


*We've got two dogs, both Jack Russell's, and they are soooo hyper. They are running around like crazy as I type.



*Minnie left, and Mickey right. We got them a while after Our first Jack Russell, Riki was killed.



*Riki and I about 3 years ago :heart:

*I love lo listen to music! I also love to play it. I've played the guitar for 11 years and the acoustic bass( which is bigger than me Oo) for 6. I also play a little piano. I'm currently learning to play the violin! :)



I'm not too good at it right now



The guitar is in the back. It was the best picture I could find of it.

*As some of you may know, I was a participant in the Miss Arizona USA contest, representing my city of Chandler! I didn't win but Arizona got a great girl to represent our state! And she made 3rd runner up in the Miss USA pageant! I was sooo proud of her :D


I enjoyed doing it, but I'm not doing it again haha. I was pretty much broke for a while after it.

Ummm...That's about all I can put together right now. If you've got anymore questions about me, ask. I'd love to answer it :D

Thanks again guys. And thanks to all of you who have faved/commented my work, as well as to all my new watchers! I wouldn't be on DA without your support! :heart:

P.S. It's 105 degrees Fahrenheit today! Gah!

My absence + More features!

Hey guys,

So I'm sure you all have noticed that I have not posted anything traditional in a really long time. All I really have to say to this is I've not been in the mood. And I'm sure we all go through this once in a while. I've been going through some personal situations that have kept my mood in the tank for some time now. And strangely enough, the three pieces that I've uploaded recently, all photography, represent my mood. The title of these pieces represent how I feel now, or have felt recently. A lot of what I feel really has to do with how difficult it is for me to understand that there is light at the end of the tunnel and I need to forget and move on. Anyway, it has been very difficult to focus on one thing for long. I've started some pieces but I just don't have the mind set to finish them. Sorry guys. I'll try very hard to get over this, what ever "this" is, and hopefully I'll place a band-aid over the wound and I'll be as bubbly as ever again.

FEATURE

Now, on to that feature! You basically have to catch my 10,000th page view, take a screen shot of it, and send me a note of the screen shot.

TUTORIAL

Oh and before I forget, from the results of the poll that I posted, I can see that a lot of you would like me to do a color pencil tutorial for portraits. Now my question to you is:

What specific facial feature would you like to see me do a tutorial on?
for example: nose, eyes, lips etc.

Hey guys,

Right now I'm really confused and just a little annoyed. A few days ago, I had to delete some deviations from my favorites that I did not add. It happened about thrice consecutively. I was concerned but I didn't follow up on the issue. Now I just received three notes from some one saying I wanted their drawing as a print, and I offered a lot of money for it as well. I have NO idea what is going on but I am beginning to think someone has hacked my account information and is using it to post comments and fav random pictures. Have any of you experienced a problem like this one? I really don't know what to do right now, and I don't wanna have to create a new DA account, or leave DA all together. Help please?

On another note, this journal is very overdue, but I just haven't been able to find the time to write it. Two months ago or so, I wrote a journal saying that who ever caught my 7050th preview would get a feature.

Hey guys,

How has the year been for you all? I have been rather busy, mostly with school, but there were other things that I also had to get done, and I hate having a deadline. Anyway, if you all haven't noticed, I was able to purchase a camera which I'm totally excited about. It's a Nikon D40 and I was told it is ideal for people transitioning from point shoot to SLR. I might consider getting something better in the near future, but that is after I've learned all the tricks to digital photography. So for all you photographers out there, any tips on how to do portrait shots or any tips at all will be mucho appreciated.

Oh, the pressure... and a feature!

Hey guys,

Read on to know about the rules for the feature!

I know I didn't update you all on how the pageant went so here it is. I didn't win, but I was a semi finalist out of 54 girls. So all is well. I'll definitely be going back next year. I met some great girls who were willing to help me with several things as it was not their first time doing this particular pageant. All in all, I believe it was a very successful pageant. Arizona got an amazingly beautiful and smart girl to represent their state, and I met some amazing people! ^____^ So that's the pageant update.

On another note, finals are this week, and my brain is overwhelmed. I'm working out math problems in my head as I write. I'll be free on Wednesday. Yes, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. So I'm almost there. Wish me luck.
           _______________________


Now about that feature... I've never really featured anyone, so I thought now would be the ideal time, seeing as how I am nearing 7,000 page views. Now that's not a lot, but I consider it a great accomplishment.

So here is the deal. Catch page view number 7,000, take a screen shot of it, and send me the link via note. If no one sends me a link for 7,000 page views, we'll shoot for 7,050 I'll feature 3 pieces from your gallery. Hows that?


Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit/comment/watch/fav my work. I really appreciate it, and you all are the reason I am still here.

Much :heart:
Joelle

Pageant is this weekend...Yikes!

Hey guys,

So as I mentioned in my previous journal...or at least I think I did, I entered the Miss Arizona USA pageant a few months ago, and it's pretty much here. Let me tell you, I have done absolutely nothing to prepare for it. And I am a nervous wreck right now, even though I still have a few days to go. I did finally go out today and purchase a few things that I'll need for the pageant, and luckily, I had already bought my dress. It's at the tailors now, getting altered. I'm worried I won't have enough time to get accustomed to it as the tailor says he'll have it done by Friday. On top of that, I'm not really in that great of shape for the swimsuit competition. But I'm not really going to stress on that. What am super nervous about is the interview portion.

So with that being said, have any of you ever been in any beauty pageants?

Can you perhaps give me some advice?

What kind of questions do you think the judges will ask?

Or maybe you could share some of your experiences with me.

I greatly appreciate the help!

Thanks!

Joelle

Hey guys,

How are you all fairing? It has been a very busy month for me, and I don't think its getting any better for a while. Perhaps after November?

Anyway, I did manage to magically finish a drawing this month which I submitted into a Traditional Portrait Contest hosted by the lovely :icongabbyd70:. Surprisingly, I took third place. I wasn't home when the results were posted (went camping for the weekend). When I got home, I signed onto DA and my message box was overloaded. I found the cause after reading A note from Gabby. I was in shock for a moment. Then I had to figure out how I would thank all you lovely deviants for the favs/watches/comments.

I also figured taking third was somewhat of an early birthday present for me. I'M 20 TODAY... I'm getting old!  

Here is my entry by the way:

Dream by joelle-t27

I also wanted to congratulate the other winners:

1st place

Butt effect by eileenirma  by :iconeileenirma:

2nd place

La luz de la mujer by Arteddy  by :iconarteddy:

4th place

Kristin Kreuk II by KLSADAKO  by :iconklsadako:

And the honorable mention went to

Ellie by Shigdioxin  by :iconshigdioxin:


This coming month, I'll be running around like mad. I entered the Miss Arizona Pageant, and I'll be representing the city of Chandler. The entry fee was super expensive first of all. Then of course I have to worry about the gown, swimsuit, interview outfit, shoes, cocktail dress for the opening number and lots more. So I'm just about broke. Haha But the experience will be great, so I'm looking forward to it.

I can't end the journal without the thank you's.
I'd like to thank all of you who have taken the time to comment/fav/watch me. You are all my inspiration, and I'm glad you all enjoy my work.

Well I'll say that is the longest journal I've posted so far. If you read all of it, I definitely owe you a dollar! ^____^

Much love,

Joelle :heart:
