Greeting to all of you, I'm Karlee, a girl born in the USA. I enjoy anime and manga but lately am starting to get more into comics. Currently I am in college working towards and Associates in Arts and one in Business. Lately I am leaning towards graphic design but we'll see what I do in the future.
Mind you, I am very analytical, blunt, yet ironically sensitive. A straightforward kind of person that doesn't like sugar coating things. Yet sometimes, certain things can get me so emotional. I want to blame that on being female, but seeing as many of the male race seems to be more childish. Yeah, no longer do I blame to the feminine side of things. So you could see me reading a book making faces and getting so in tune with the characters that I start acting like them. Freaky right? Not really if you know anything about Sagittarius females. Especially us artists! XD
I own some pets and do love animals. I had a dog of mixed breed that well honestly is a wuss. But sadly he passed away May 7th, 2013. I miss him so much since he was my little brother. So a bit depressed lately. Two cats currently, one it pretty old and may not be with us for long. Then two quite annoying bird, I love them like brothers but they tend to squawk when I need to concentrate. I have pictures up in my gallery if you want to see them.
As you can see art as well as photography (usually of nature or animals) are great passions of mine. Though I have many more such as music, my favorite band is Flyleaf (though the original singer has stepped down). Also I have been all over Australia, and enjoy many others cultures.
On a day to day basis you can usually find me on DArt. Otherwise I am drawing, going to school, or other daily needs. I live off of Ramen usually. We artist tend to starve for our work. Though if I have a sweet tooth kick, I like to grab some Pocky, orange sherbert, or dark chocolate with blackberries. But every day I am in front of the computer, checking on my groups. Making sure everything is going well while I try not to drown in school work. But at the end of the day, or well when ever I get to bed, is usually where my mind drifts. Being so imaginative its like a TV implanted itself into my brain. So dreams are something I inspire to bring to life though my art.
Pairings I like
Fave music genres: Rock, Punk, Dance, J-Pop, J-Rock, Classical
Favourite photographer: My Dad
Favourite style of art: Comic, Abstract
MP3 player of choice: Ipod

The RAW Format
Not every camera has the option to use RAW, but many do and I highly suggest you use it! I shoot in RAW about 90% of the time. Shooting in RAW retains all the data on the sensor, and doesn't compress it, unlike JPEG. This kind of file is a lossless format.
If you have a question, please comment below!
[You can also click one of the files and comment in my sta.sh!]
Hopefully this has helped you.
How to get InspiredCommunity Weekmeiyue
Have you ever had one of those times when you really feel like drawing but had no idea what to draw? Or have you ever had an artblock you've desperately wanted to get rid of? Art is super fun, but it sucks when you just can't draw when you really want to. Here are a few of mine and a few other artists' tips to get inspired, and hopefully it'll help you!
Okay let's start!
1. Make an OC
OCs, or original characters, are a great source of inspiration. If you have none, make one! It's super fun to design your own character, especially since it's original so you can go crazy with it! Think up a personality for your OC, as well as their hobbies and interests, and even a back story, so that they seem real. Whenever you're out of ideas to draw, you can draw your OC. If your OC is well-developed, you might even develop a loving for them and long to draw them all the time .
2. Make Adoptables
Prismacolor 101*SEE BOTTOM OF JOURNAL FOR HELPFUL VIDEOS.*plexusdynasty
As traditional artists, you probably have heard of prismacolor premier softcore color pencils (such a long name ) Just like any other brand, there are some cons that I will go over. I will also be briefly comparing prismas to faber castell polychromos. I hope this “guide” will help you with deciding whether or not to get prismas
Which set to buy?
I think everyone debates on this topic. Should I buy this set? What if it’s not enough? Maybe I don’t need all the colors? I personally debated with myself (LOL) for 1-2 months. There is the original 12, 24, 48, 72, 132, and 150 set. There are a few sets in between but they are the anniversary ones and stuff like that. I recommend starting not with the 24 pack. It seems like the first go to choice for everybody but in my opinion, you’ll soon regret it. Most of us used the Crayola 24 pack before prismas so wha
PE: GemstonesCommunity WeekRiemea
First of all, I won't differentiate between "precious"* and "semi-precious" gemstones in this article. Here's why: The term "semi-precious gemstone" is an old and rather unscientific term. The terms "precious" and "semi-precious" can be very misleading, as they imply certain stones are more valuable than others, even when that's not the case. The distinction between the two terms was used to reflect a gem's rarity, quality and "beauty", and because there's simply no sure, objective way to tell which gems are "precious" and which aren't, you won't find them in this article.
So, I will simply talk of "gems" or "gemstones", or, if I'm feeling like this article needs some word diversity/really lazy, simply "stones".
*most commonly: diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald
Important Terms and Definitions:

The Radioactive Part of Photography
X-rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which means it's light, just like visible light infra-red or radio waves.
Picture via wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light
X-rays are well known for their ability to pass through materials. This particularity is due to the energy level of this type of light. Lights with more energy pass more easily through materials. This energy is also related to the damage that this radiation can produce. UV light is dangerous for your skin, X-rays are known to be dangerous, and gamma rays are sometimes called "death rays".
If you want to know how to use X-rays, and learn a few things about the equipment, I'd recommend watching the video by Nick Veasey, as you will see work on artistic X-ray pictures (see links below).
X-rays have been used for art for quite some time. The on

I wish to collect points to possibly do events among other things. If you are one of the generous ones to donate me I thank you greatly. I give Llamas to all those who are generous. I have no job and live upon points for anything here on DArt.
Limited Point Commissions (Closed)So I thought I would give it a slot. I will be out of town for a few days after this. But will be back as soon as possible. You see I am helping someone move but other then that I am free till classes start up again. So I am trying out commissions. If this goes well I will likely do more. I made sure to make all the prices reasonable and will do my best at them! Each slot is for one project which can be by the same person. What do you think?
