Yelloooooo PEOPLE !!!!! How are you all doing?? 😀 You know how I get excited every time I sit to type a blog for you peeps ^_^ and my artworks that I’m posting today will tell you exactly how much I appreciate your loving and encouraging comments about my work :’).
My zest for art is what keeps me going. It helps me to stay calm and optimistic about life. Even though there are a zillion things in life to stress me out, I know that as long as I have a pencil, paper and an eraser there’s nothing in this world that can bring me down.

When I’m drawing I feel like a Super-heroine who’s not afraid to stand up against the bad guys and with great courage and strength tries her best to take them down. Well, in my case I don’t exactly consider them the bad guys but yes, there are certain people in my life and I’m sure you have them too who give you that bad vibe every time you are around them. But then I realized that it depends on me that how I react to certain situations and to certain people’s actions. If I choose to take the negative events of my life as a positive-learning experience only then I can control the consequences of such occurrences in a positive way.
I know, it’s easier said than done and I’m trying my level-best to master this skill -_- . Most of the time I give in to the bad circumstances of my life and I often end up being the victim of the people who create these circumstances, sometimes intentionally and sometimes unintentionally 😦 . But the good news is that now I can handle such situations way better than I used to before I started drawing again. It was my hobby that made me realize that a particular circumstance or a certain group of people cannot decide who I am and what are my capabilities. I’m the only one who can shape my life and change my destiny.
In today’s world where everybody is competing against each other, trying to bring each other down, it is very difficult to have a positive attitude towards life and abide by this ‘I believe in Myself’ philosophy all the time. You will always face obstacles in your life that will test your patience and strength and there will be times when you will want to give up and feel like you are in a dark abyss of misery but like Charlie Chaplin says, “Nothing is permanent in this wicked world – not even our troubles.” , so no matter how big the problem is, it will soon go away ^_^ . But during these difficult times where your problems seem an undefeatable force always remember that no force is stronger than the faith that you have in yourself 🙂 .
Today’s blog is about the weird doodles I did out of boredom ( some on class notes and some on digital medium) . I once read in an article that people who frequently make doodles are usually very restless and have a hard time focusing on one thing at a time. Hmmmm…..that explains a lot about my behavior.
Even though I’m as lazy as a cow , my mind is constantly thinking about stuffs that make like no sense Sometimes I think about dinosaurs and sometimes about fairies. There are times when I contemplate about my future and wish that one day I would become a scientist who would turn this entire world into a CARTOON WORLD 😀 😀 I know, I’m weird But I guess the best part about being restless, about being curious, about being ‘ WEIRD’ is that you don’t need people to keep you interested, to keep you happy. You have your own mind and your own little world to keep you busy ^_^ and the best way to avoid being bored is to draw doodles whenever and wherever you can.

To me nothing is a waste of time, not even doodling. It is believed that people who doodle a lot usually have an active mind because their mind is constantly thinking and refuses to stay still at one topic.

So remember, next time someone laughs at you and mocks you for the weird doodle you made in your notebook just ignore them. Be happy and proud of this talent of yours because you never know, sometimes the things that seem a waste of time right now might actually prove to be very beneficial to you in the future in some way or another. TATA!! ^_^ .
Hello PEOPLE!!! 😀 😀 Hope everyone’s doing well :). So, Day 12….hmmmmm I was wondering what I should post in this blog. Digital drawings, traditional drawings or Fanarts :3 How about I post Horror themed artworks!! 😀 . The idea came from recently watching the movie Split . It’s a psychological horror thriller film with James McAvoy playing a sufferer of Multiple Personality Disorder 😮 😮
I came across this movie’s ad on Deviantart where they organized a contest in order to promote this movie. Now I couldn’t participate in that contest because as you know , I was super busy with exams but boy-oh-boy you should’ve seen the entries 😮 😮 They were all breathtakingly beautiful. But this post is neither about the movie nor about the contest( I wish it was about James McAvoy but no it’s not 😥 ) . Since I have a slight obsession with horror movies and anything that gives me goosebumps 😀 I often end up drawing things that are creepy and weird-looking 3:) 3:-) .
I usually don’t get scared of fictional horror movies but when I see that they are based on true events like Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Haunting in Connecticut, The Conjuring that’s when I have trouble sleeping at night :3 :3.

If I had to pick one horror movie that I would watch anytime-anywhere , then it would be The Wailing by Na Hong-jin. It’s a Korean horror flick with a plot line that will BLOW YOUR MIND AWAY!! 😮 😮
It’s an AWESOME movie in terms of acting, story and the degree of horror meter. I hate horror movies that have like no stories and are just there to scare people with actors wearing Halloween costumes -_- . But this movie is completely different from all the other horror movies that I’ve seen so far. I highly recommend this movie to you all and I would love to know some of your favorite horror movies. Cheerio! ^_^ ^_^
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!HELLLLLOOOOOOOO PEOPLE!!!!!! 😀 😀 How are you all doing??? I’ve got some very good news to share with you all ^_^ I got an A in my thesis course 😀 😀 I still can’t believe it It’s so surreal 😮 😮 .But I really worked hard for this A and I’m thankful to the Creator for answering my prayers ^_^
I also want to thank you all for bringing such a positive change into my life. Your encouraging comments about my drawings have really boosted up my confidence and made me realize that there’s still hope for me :’) , that I can overcome any kind of obstacle in my life as long as I love myself and have faith in myself and this grade is a proof of that ^_^ ^_^

I’m still not done with my Undergrad 😦 One semester left and I hope that soon ends well 😥 I see a lot of new followers here :o. Thank you so much for the follow. It really means a lot to me :’) .Hopefully, I’ll be getting more time to practice now 🙂 and you’ll get to see some more of my artworks here on blog. Please continue to support and encourage me like this. I’ve never met you but you all have a special place in my heart ^_^ It is because of you people that I have learned to appreciate myself and my skills :).
Not going to make this post very long. Lucky you 😛 So I just got a few days break before countless quizzes and exams start forcing themselves into my life which is why I am able to spend some of my time blogging so that you lovely people can get the latest updates about my life 😀 Awwww….I already feel like a celebrity 😛 A girl can dream, can’t she? 😉
Coming back to the reality where quizzes and exams are trying to devour me completely -_- , I took some time off to practice drawing and watching Mark Crilley tutorials are the best and quickest way to improve oneself as an artist. He shares some brilliant techniques and tricks that are very easy to follow and at the same time when you apply these you will realize how useful these are in making your drawings better than ever 😮 😮

Those of you who have seen his videos or are familiar with his work may or may not be able to distinguish my drawings with his because whenever I use reference from other people’s artworks I always try to add ‘my own element’ to it to make it…ummmm…I wouldn’t call it different but to leave a kind of signature mark to it so that people can recognize my self-made modifications in these drawings 🙂 So these drawings that I am posting today are probably a few days or a month old
I really hope that you like this post 🙂 Enjoy! ^_^

A very big HELLLLLLOOOOOOOO to you all!!! 😀 😀 Hope everyone is doing great ^_^ So, I’ve been super busy these past few days with studies and other stuffs and was unable to take some time off for blogging 😦 I would probably get even busier in the coming weeks 😦 so that’s a bummer 😥 but like I promised myself in my first blog that I wouldn’t let anything come between me and my hobby which is drawing and so even during these busy days I try to make some time for my passion and Deviantart is a living or should I say a virtual proof of that
Just wanted to share with you guys that I’ve reached 100+ followers on Deviantart 😀 I’m very happy about it. Hopefully some day I’ll reach 100+ followers here as well ^_^ Dream big,right? 😛 I used to post my drawings on instagram but now I’ve stopped using it because there were artists who would send requests to follow me and then a few minutes later they would unfollow me and that would make me very upset. I know my drawings are crappy but still even if one is born an artist he/she still went through that phase when they had to practice to get to that professional level, when they were once a beginner….an amateur artist like me. I expected an artist to understand this. You hope for other artists to help you improve your drawing skills and not ignore you. If ordinary people had done this I wouldn’t have brooded over it much but this was done by the very artists who would give posts about how their works had been rejected and how it would make them feel completely worthless about themselves. Well, they were doing the same to other artists as well, disrespecting their work -_- Sending requests to follow me and then in a minute, deciding to not witness me grow as an artist was something I found very disappointing. It really doesn’t matter how good you draw or how many followers you have if you don’t have the heart of an artist who empathizes other artists and are willing to help them move forward then you’re just a puppet with moving hands. An artist should understand another artist and his/her journey as an artist. The reason why I stopped using instagram was not because I couldn’t get myself many followers but because I didn’t get a chance to show my work to good artists who would criticize my work and would give me guidelines to improve myself.It was a complete waste of time 😐 Just showing a movie in an empty cinema hall.Besides my crappy drawings are way too cool for these crappy people 😛 lol
When I started using Deviantart I was amazed to see that many professional artists working for marvel comics or mangas were following me or in Deviantart’s language ‘watching’ me and giving me some useful drawing guidelines and not only that they have this section where you submit your art and request for the Critique and get some honest and useful criticisms about your work. Unlike instagram, deviantart wasn’t a complete waste of time 😀 You actually get to learn stuffs and improve your skills and showcase your talent.
No matter how crappy your drawings are you will always find people there who will appreciate and value your hard work and not just ignore you. Now I’m not here to advertise Deviantart 😛 but if you are an artist and you are all about improving yourself as an artist and as a human being then I would suggest you to open an account on Deviantart. You will learn a lot from there 🙂 and I’m not saying this because I’ve got 100+ followers there 😛 but because a crappy artist like me just realized that there are artists out there who don’t judge you by your initial crappy drawings, will still have faith in you and are willing to guide you and help you to improve as an artist 🙂 Have a good day everyone! ^_^
I’ve always had trouble drawing male characters. Whenever I try to draw one they always end up looking like female-ish men :P. Maybe the reason is lack of practice or maybe my unwillingness to draw male characters. I think I’m more inclined to drawing anime girls or any characters relating to the female species.
As an artist, well as an amateur artist -_-(not trying to sound too professional :P) I find women more beautiful to draw-long hair, curves, beautiful eyes, it’s a very big challenge to draw beautiful female characters, trying to match or even trying to remotely resemble the real beauty that women possess and I’m not saying this because I fall under the same category 😛 I love drawing them because I get to experiment with their hair, eyes ,postures, body structures and the way they symbolize beauty within them. No offence to men. Men are beautiful too 😉 but I guess I still haven’t realized that because like I said before I suck at drawing male characters so I’m sure as soon as I become as good in drawing men as I am good in drawing women(well not that good though) I’ll have just as much fun drawing the male characters as I do when drawing female characters. So I really need a lot of practicing to do to appreciate both these species’ beauty from an ‘amateur’ artist’s perspective but in the meantime enjoy this post which includes digital artworks of my OCs. Both of these artworks include profile views of my OCs. I tried to give these a kind of abstract look. Hope you like it ^_^
Whewww….so using blog after a very long time. I didn’t get much time to draw anything new. So this time I’m posting both tradition and digital artworks that I did a long time ago. I feel like I’m not improving at all 😥 just the same crappy amateur artist I used to be a year ago -_- I don’t know you guys decide
So these past few days I had been practicing really hard to improve my drawing skills. It kinda sucks knowing I wouldn’t be able to practice much since my classes are soon starting. I would have to get busy again with studies -_- Anyways so I’m posting some more of my digital artworks. Hope you like my work 🙂
