I'm taking a break from everything today, or else I'm gonna go insane.
And I wanted to use this opportunity to announce that this page is probably going to get a major reeboot in the near future. I mean, come on! it was long overdue! I've had it for 10 years and it hasn't changed too much, there are things in it that I am embarassed of!

So it begins with a major cleanup of both my gallery and my favourites, I won't delete gifts I've made for friends or art trades but I will put everything I did before 2012 in a separate folder called "old stuff".

There will also be some major changes in some of my characters, people change over time so it is also natural for the beings we use to represent ourselves in art or on the internet to change as well. 

You know I like lists so I'm gonna make a few just to give you a heads-up (and to hellp me keep track of what I have to do because my brain isn't wired to remember things on its own...)

Changes in page layout/ favourites, etc.

:bulletgreen: Change username, avatar and signature
:bulletblue: Make journals less ranty/ pessimistic (if I need to vent I'll do it elsewhere)
:bulletpurple: Close requests, art trades for friends only

Changes in art:

:bulletred: GET OFF YOUR LAZY BUTT AND FINISH EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF ART YOU OWE!
:bulletorange: Experiment with using different media such as watercolor, pencil and pastel.
:bulletyellow: Improve lineart skills, don't rely on color too much
:bulletgreen: Stop using a ballpoint pen for shading! 
:bulletblue: Experiment with different art styles, don't just stick with the same old one.

Changes to characters/ personas/ avatars:

:bulletgreen: White Eye will be getting a major reeboot

Why? First: because there was something I didn't consider when I first came up with her: cultural appropiation. Some things about her were somewhat disrespectful to Native American cultures, and that is the last thing I want such an important character to be. She will still be partially influenced by the Yoemen (Yaqui) stories my dad used to tell me when I was little, but overall, she will cease to be something that steals from other cultures. I am sure not all of you will agree with this but this is a desicion I didn't come up with on a whim, I did my homework and talked to people, and made my desicion based on what I learned.

Second: People change over time and so have I, and I don't feel as strongly connected to the character as I once used to so she will be changing with me. I also realized that, as a fantasy character, I can do whatever I want with her design so I am going for something a bit more daring than a white eyed grulla ;) I'm still playing around with her desing and story but you can see a sneak preview here 


:bulletyellow: I'm retiring some of my characters.
I really don't think I can work with some of them anymore, they are just trapped in limbo, just "existing" but never changing or interacting with anything, so I thought it was better to let them go. I still don't want to get rid of them because who knows? I may still be able to do somethin with them, so I put them into a "retired character" folder for now.

:bulletgreen: Grey the Hound will be modified, too.
No major plot or design changes for this one but the color of her her mohawk and her clothes will change depending on the situation or her mood, which I think will also hellp reflect her unpredictable and crazy nature.

:bulletblue: Changing Antare's wings.
:bulletpurple: Changing my "main" Pokemon RP character.
I no longer feel a strong connection to Fang the Treecko, but I did develop a very VERY strong connection to another Pokemon and I find it easier to RP with that one, so I decided to design a character based on that connection instead of trying to stick with one that I no longer identify with. I may upload a reference for that other character later on.

So, in conclussion:
I haven't really been neglecting art as much as I should (especially with all this thesist business around) because I simply can't :P 
And it is only a matter of time before I come back here with a vengance.

The mare from outer space by who-stole-MY-name
The mare from outer space
Just a sneak preview of White Eye's new look ;)
This is just a color experiment so I completeley ignored the anatomy and pose and everything else (I ain't even sorry hah!)

So, what's new about her?

- Changed her coat from grullo to dark bay.
Because I love dark bays, their coats are extremely fun to play around with, and I like colouring them more than grullos. I still ADORE grullos! but her dusty coat was getting old.... I still wanted to keep her dorsal stripe, and since she is a fantasy character, I think I am allowed to cheat ;)

-Blue mane!
Because I want blue hair IRL but I can't have it ;__;
Also, blue dorsal stripe because I love dorsal stripes.

-Gold anklet on right leg.
That's where my tattoo is IRL, and I want to make up a little story for it ;) someone put it there to keep it safe, who will dare mess with the legs of a blind, wild horse? 

-She is blind.
I don't like to make my characters too perfect so I always give them some sort of defect like scars or missing limbs, White Eye represents instinct, intuition and emotion: the animal part in all of us! And what is more instinctive that a blind wild horse? She has to rely on instinct and intuition rather than on her physical senses to survive.

-She is no longer a "grass ghost"
But she is not 100% horse either ;) I've always had this feeling of not belonging and I wanted to incorporate that into this character, but this time, instead of being the spirit of a grassland that died she is an "external conciousness"... or a being that came from somewhere out there... basically: an alien in the form of a horse. Because aliens are cool.

-Neither mare nor stallion.
I like experimenting with androgyny so I want her to look like either a very tall and powerfull mare or a femenine-looking stallion. She is still a mare, though, or at least her body is... her essence is neither male nor female.
I did this in order to remove the influence of gender on instinct, emotion and intuition, she is pure animal instead of one or the other.

-Change in personality and abilities.
I wanted to give her a bit more of a kick, so instead of being a passive guardian she is now a solitary presence with a strong temperament, I am still working on this, though. Her shapeshifting powers will also be limited, possibly only from human to horse.

Any suggestions, critiques, comments, etc. are more than wellcomed! :D

Una vista previa del nuevo look de White Eye ;)
Este es un experimento de color, así que descuidé la anatomía, la pose y etc. (Y no me importa hah!)

Bueno, Que hay de nuevo con ella?

- Cambie su color de grullo a retinto
Por que me encantan los retintos, me gusta jugar con sus colores y me gusta mas colorearlos que los grullos. Todavía me ENCANTAN los grullos pero ya me estaba cansando del gris polvoso.... Pero no me quería deshacer de su linea dorsal, y como es un personaje de fantasía creo que puedo hacer trampa con eso ;)

-Crin azul!
Por que quiero tener el pelo de ese color pero no puedo ;__;
Su linea dorsal también es azul por que se me dio la gana.

-Brazalete dorado en su pie derecho.
Por que tengo ahí es donde tengo mi tatuaje, y quiero hacer una historia basada en eso ;) alguien le puso ese brazalete ahí para que no se lo robaran, quien se atreve a tocarle las patas a una yegua salvaje y ciega? 

-Esta ciega
No me gusta que mis personajes sean demasiado perfectos, así que siempre les pongo cicatrices o algún otro defecto. White Eye representa instinto, intuición y emoción: la parte animal que todos tenemos. Y pocas cosas son mas "animales" que un caballo salvaje ciego, por que depende mas de su intuición e instinto que de sus sentidos.

-Ya no es un "fantasma"
Pero tampoco es 100% caballo ;) Siempre he tenido una sensación como de que no encajo y quier que este personaje lo refleje, pero ahora en vez de ser el espíritu de una pradera que ya no existe, es una "conciencia externa", algo que vino de fuera... básicamente: un extraterrestre. Por que los extraterrestres son cool.

-Ni yegua ni caballo.
Me gusta experimentar con la androginia, quiero que se viera como una yegua alta y fuerte, o como un caballo un poco femenino. su cuerpo sigue siendo el de una yegua pero su esencia no es ni hembra ni macho.
Lo hice para eliminar la influencia del género en el instinto, emoción e intuición, quiero que sea 100% animal y no uno o lo otro.

-Cambios en su personalidad y habilidades.
Quiero darle un poco mas de intensidad, así que en vez de ser una guardiana solitaria pacífica quiero que sea una presencia solitaria de carácter fuerte, aunque todavía estoy experimentando con eso. Sus poderes de cambio de forma también van a estar limitados, posiblemente solo de humano a caballo.

Cualquier sugerencia, critica o comentario es muy bienvenido! :D

Ok, just want to get something out of my chest:
Scottish barbecue is amazing. I think I've fainted. 
That rabbits can't stick their tongues out in the middle of their mouths?
They stick it out sideways, like this:



Its because their teeth get in the way xD
They can only stick it out in the middle when they are young, before their teeth grow too much.



... Yeah.
I'm trying to write a thesis right now, I don't even have time to think.
Imma do a Master's I said... Its gonna be awesome, I said... :no:
Thank you so much for your patience guys, it shouldn't be long before I wake this thing up from hibernation.
