:heart: Oh dear, could it be...is that...COUY?!

Why, yes it is! Hi everyone! I have serious doubts that anyone still comes to this page, but I thought I'd make a post here about what I've been doing in my absence.

I've been working. A regular old full-time job, like the ones adults are supposed to have. I gave up pretty much everything that I love (gaming, drawing, writing and the like) to pay my stack of bills -- but now I'm back. I've been blindly going along for the past two years without taking the time to do the things that I love. It's taken a toll. It's easy to understand how people can get so caught up in the drama that is life when they don't take the time to do things like, say, read a fanfic about their favorite ship.

:heart: That simple act of taking a moment to do something you love can save you so much grief. It takes you to another world! A world of relaxation and love. So, I've pulled my head out of the sand again. I've been drawing and writing and sewing cosplay and doing all the wonderful things that I forgot existed in the daily bill paying struggle of everyday life.

I used to think that the internet was ruled by teenagers since they had more free time then adults -- but adults can make the time too, dang it!

:heart: I'm aiming to build my life so that I can continue doing the things that I love. Making silly drawings for my favorite couples, writing ovary-exploding fanfics and doing all that jazz. I've started a Patreon, a tumblr and a personal blog! Even if you aren't interested in supporting people through Patreon, it's an awesome place to find some mind-blowing creators!

I'm currently supporting a few of my favorite web comic artists: Sciderman, Sarah Andersen, Shen and F**kyesDeadpool's creator. They are amazing people and they have inspired me to do what they've done: Make the freaking time for what I love! :heart:

You can find me on Patreon under Couyfish!

:la: beingcouy.tumblr.com/
 :la:

I've been working my way through a list of my favorite couples. :excited: So if you're wondering who's coming down the pipeline...wonder no more!


:heart: Peter & Matt [complete]

:heart: Bruce & Clint [complete...ish]

:heart: Loki & Thor [plotting]

:heart: Steve & Tony [...]

:heart: Deadpool & Peter […]


I also want to take a few requests every week on my tumblr. :D Like, questions or something. I'll figure it out. I can draw anyone from Marvel, Resident Evil 0-6 or Final Fantasy 7.


Hugs!

Job change, chibis and 3 fandoms...Oh MY!

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 27, 2015, 9:40 AM
Well looky here. Couy's still alive. :D While I've been writing up a storm and doodling, I haven't been on DA much as of the last few years. If you are still watching me, yay!

UPDATE: My brother just gave me one of his old wacom tablet! OMG, I CAN DRAW!!! YAAAYYYYY!!!! Next kiriban is 23,555!


Job Change
That's right. After two years of being a gourmet baker -- I'm changing jobs! The freaky part is that I don't quite know what I'm changing to yet. Most likely a wedding cake decorator. :love: We shall see!


Daily Chibis
I've been drawing on and off again, so I'm starting up daily chibis for July! I'll be drawing a chibi for every day of the week and some of them will be RANDOM CHARACTERS taken from my watcher's pages! :excited: 

Three Fandoms
I can't recall a time where I was into three fandoms at once, but here it is. :D I'm currently into 3, YES 3, fandoms! Omg! Thanks for my sis and I's ongoing co-written fanfiction, I'm still into Marvel's Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Resident Evil. But...I recently got Final Fantasy 7 for my computer -- and I forgot how much I love the FF7 world! So I've been working on stories and art for all three. 

So! If you like any of those three, prepare yourself for fanworks! :love:

:heart:A CHANGE IN HISTORY:heart:
As of a day ago, gay marriage is legal in all of the United States and I couldn't be happier.  As someone who's known they were bi since I was like eight, it's wonderful news to hear that I can marry whoever I fall in love with!

Write, draw, job hunt!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 11, 2015, 10:34 AM
Yesterday, I dug out my desk! :D Now I have space to draw again! WOOOOOO!!!! More comicsssss!!!!!

:boogie:

I'm also 4400 words along in my 10000 word goal for Camp Nano Wri Mo. :) Trying to do fun things around life is hard, but important. I feel like I always drift away from writing and drawing only to realize just how important they are to me. So expect more chibis soon!

:love: :blowkiss:

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! I spent my Easter weekend at Sakura-con 2015. I hadn't been for a few years but through a lot of hard work -- my group pulled together and made some kick butt costumes.

Our group was a Garen from League of Legends, Golden Age Doctor Doom, the Winter Soldier (Bucky) and a last minute Loki cosplay for me. :love:

We had fun and we'll be hitting a few more conventions in the area. I'm REALLY hoping to make Geek Girl Con this year!

:heart:

Happy holidays!

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 21, 2014, 10:58 AM


:heart: I never really got the whole 'use happy holidays' instead of 'merry christmas' thing until I discovered that it was for those that celebrate Christmas without the religious aspect involved. You know, just following the tradition that your parents did. :)

:heart: That's me. I'm not Christian or anything (not to be narrow D: ), but I still look forward to getting together with family and friends every year, listening to jolly music, eating peppermint sticks and giving gifts. It's more of an excuse to hang out with family more than anything else.

:heart: So, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season in whatever way you celebrate it and I will see you next year. :love:

Bump in the chibi road

Thu Dec 11, 2014, 9:39 PM
Well. I'll be traveling for the next three days, so I won't be uploading a chibi a day. :( I'll try but it's really tough when I don't have my mouse and a flat surface to work on.

Happy holidays! :D :heart:

EDIT: WOO! Premium again! :D MY THUMBNAILS! My precious thumbnails! :smooch:

Here are my chibis so far: :love:

My oh my. It's been a quiet art year. I understand by highschoolers rule the internet -- adults work too much. Hm. Life lessons. :D

So I hope everyone has had a decent year. Every year has its ups and downs -- mine certainly has -- but I feel like I'm still doing pretty good. It's easy to get caught up in commuting and working and forget to do the things you love.

So. Do that things that you love! :) For November, I wrote 50,000 words on stories and I loved it. I had neglected my creative pursuits for months and months. For December, I'm drawing and coloring a chibi a day. Writing every day taught me that I certainly have time to do a chibi a day for this month -- so that's what I'm doing.

Let's see here...Fandoms. I'm still into Resident Evil and Avengers. Nothing much changed there I guess. :D So that's what my chibis will be. Probably more Avengers than RE just because there are a lot more characters to draw.

AND! If you're really bored, I made a tutorial on coloring chibis: 
Then there's this, which is a whole lot of coloring and noise. --> [link]

Much love! I'll be around for the holidays and hopefully more in the new year! Life's not as crazy as it has been, so I'm dusting off my art pad. :love:

HUGS!

NaNoWriMo! Yep. Time to bust out your plots and smooth out the kinks before November.

Man, this year has been a blur. Last I knew, it was March. :o I don't suppose anyone else is doing Nano this year? I failed it last time, but I'm going to try again! 50,000 isn't impossible! :boogie:

As always, like boomerang -- I'm getting back into my creative stuff. :D I have about a dozen different fanfics to post and some chibi pics! I started my Youtube channel at long last. It only has writing and gaming videos at the moment but it's growing. :love:

SPRING CLEANING!

Hello DA friends! :D

I'm cleaning, packing and moving in real life -- so I thought I'd clean up my DA too. I'll be leaving several clubs, closing my own club (Piltover's Smallest) and maybe cleaning out some old art.

I claimed victory at Camp NaNoWriMo yesterday with just over 12k words. My goal was low because I'm pretty busy and I was a little disappointed that all those words weren't on the same story. But, they were written in April and all by my fingers -- so yay!

Like any good fandom, Marvel has completely taken over. Me and my sis, :threshie:, have been co-writing a massive monster of RP for months now. But I'm glad we are because it's the first RP I've ever done in paragraph form. I still can't seem to shake the habit of referring to it as 'rambling' rather than RPing, but meh. My writing has vastly improved -- so thank you sis! :huggle:

I used to ramble like this:
Lyminth: *eats curly fries happily*

Now, I've been rambling like this:
Lyminth smiled, picking a crispy curly fry out of his lunchbox. It was an awesome day so far -- what could go wrong?

So, all and all, it's been a very writing filled month. I'm starting to draw again, but still trying to change over to a more comic bookish style. AND I'd like to announce it I guess, just in case anyone is wondering: All of my current art projects (Lost in the Rain, etc) are closed. I'm starting fresh. 

Love you guys! Hope you all have a good day!

Kiriban, sleep trouble, CAMP NANO!

Sun Mar 16, 2014, 4:42 PM
Hi guys! Blah blah excuses blah blah busy blah blah will post soon.

:icongakusangi: Your kirban is in the works, I just feel like I can do better so I keep drawing new pics. xD; Don't worry! I'll draw a good one soon.

So, for the last two weeks I haven't been sleeping more than 3 hours a night. On this last Friday, it finally caught up to me. I realized that I was feeling like I was losing my mind, so I didn't set an alarm for Saturday morning. I slept until 1:30. :o Of course, at the same time -- the bakery had texted me at 8 that morning asking me to come in because the decorators didn't want to wait for the other baker. I freaked out because by the time I checked my phone it was freaking 3:40!

So I panicked and tried to get a hold of my manager -- also the other baker -- and it turns out that she had come in as planned later. She had told them the night before and I guess they just went into a blind panic or something. I spent most of my Saturday stressed and worried about all of this and didn't exactly relax. :faint: Even League was a nightmare with the servers crashing and nasty other players. Bah.

The most relaxing part of the evening was RPing with sis. Our RP is moving along quite nicely and I feel like it's been great practice for writing again. Which leads me to my next subject! :D

Camp NaNoWriMo 2014! WOOOOOHOOOOO! :excited: I'm so jazzed to be doing Camp again. I've started plotting out my story and made it a page on my Camp profile. So excited! Instead of princesses and minotaurs like last year, my story features orcs, blacksmiths and bards. :) I recently got into Norse documentaries and Skyrim, so I'm sure that's where it came from. I'm also trying to force myself to go back and edit the stories from Camp and November Nano, but I'm worried I'll hate them. ^^;

Can't wait!

Happy Full moon! :love:

Birthday, kiriban, surprise art!

Tue Feb 18, 2014, 1:59 PM
Yaaay! My birthday is only a few days away! One year closer to becoming the 89-year old grandmother that I aspire to be. :heart: Now, I love getting gifts-- but giving gifts is actually a little more fun for me. I dunno why, but giving stuff away feels awesome. :love: So, SOMEONE CATCH MY KIRIBAN!

EDIT: Sad news. I just caught my own kiriban when handing out llamas. :tears: Curse you, llamas! You ruin everything!

I was also thinking about doing something to help me stay move involved on DA. I feel like it's easy to drift away from it if I'm not drawing constantly. I'm doing my comics again, which helps, but I also wanted to do something fun for my clubs or for my watchers.

I have an idea. :D I think I'll randomly go through my watchers every week and find someone's character to draw. Not an art exchange, just a free pic of their character. I know a lot of people from my clubs have OCs and people are always so excited to see their characters in another style of art. Anyway, something like that. I know that not everyone has a character to draw, so...yeah.

Much love! :hug: Next kiriban is 20,022 -- since I screwed this one up! :(

As I celebrate Vali (voices.yahoo.com/the-feast-day…) AND Valentine's day, today is a day to spend quality time with friends and family as well as lovers! :blowkiss: Love you guys! Give someone a hug today! I'm off to the bakery! Today's our biggest day of the year. :heart:
:hug: :huggle: :glomp: :manhug:

Oh! And my kiriban is REALLY close! It's 19,999 so grab it if you see it! :party:

First up! HELLLOOOOO OUT THERE! :love: I love you all so much! Gimme a hug! :hug: Happy Imbolc for those that are celebrating it! :D And happy February (lots of stuff happens this month en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February)!

So, I've broken through my artist block like a ninja! I'm currently working on a new comic for the Lost in the Rain series -- but, for Valentine's day, I'm doing two short comics for :iconsuperfamily:. One is Steve & Tony of course! And the other is for Spiderman and Deadpool, as requested by the group :iconyaoipigglet:!

Also, my 19,999 color kiriban is fast approaching! :D Whoever nabs it gets a color chibi picture of a couple of their choice. You just have to send me a screen capture of the number of pageviews when you get it. Just message me or post on my main page with a link to the screencap. :love:

The big news of this journal is actually that I'm finally getting a new desk for my apartment next week! I'm so excited! I'll finally have a place to sit and work on all of my art (digital or traditional) again. :D I can't wait! :excited:

Hope everyone is doing well! I've been working on some fanfiction too, but it's not long enough to post on DA, so it might end up somewhere on my LJ. I'll keep you posted if I post it.

Much love! :blowkiss:

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 31, 2013, 9:24 PM
Happy New Years everyone! You survived 2013! :D I had a great year, but I know a lot of people who didn't. Hang in there guys! :hug: 

This year was a good one. I found a good job, moved back out into my own place and am much healthier than I was. I still have a ways to go, but I'm happy with the progress so far. 2012 was a nightmare though, so I hope it doesn't alternate. That would be awful. :o

:party: :boogie:

I'm enjoying a quiet New Years eve, drawing with sis. :love: Here are a couple of the doodles I drew out of the hat.

Peter Parker & Thor
Deadpool & Peter

And also! If you know anyone who likes Piltover from League of Legends, I'm looking for members for my new group,

:iconpiltoverssmallest:

Now that all the finding a job, getting a house stuff is behind me -- I'm getting back into my creative goodness! Drawing has been on hold because my apartment is largely unfurnished, but I'm buying myself a desk as soon as I can. Then I can draw my comics that I miss so much! :tears: I might just face back pain and draw on the floor. :(

Have a safe and fun New Years! Best wishes and much love in 2014!

Christmas Crazy

Mon Dec 23, 2013, 7:26 PM
This month has been a blur! :D I can't decide if that's a good thing or not...

Much love! :D I'll update this with links to the free pics when I get them up.

OPEN SLOT for pic! :D Message me!

Happy Holidays to everyone! I probably won't be online for a few days through Christmas. I'm trying to get the free pics done now, so hopefully I'll have those up by the end of the night. I was worried they might be presents so yikes!

There's still one pic available! I know my watcher base has changed a lot over this year -- from fandom to fandom and those long inactive months. ^^; I guess I only have two active watchers...Well, thank you two for wanting pics! :D :huggle:

I'm also working on a xmas fanfic but it won't be done in time so oh well. I should probably start a Valentine's day one now so it'll get done in time! ^^;

As for cleaning out my gallery, I'll be doing some trimming but sis pointed out that it's a good reminder to have my old art up as a sort of reminder how far I've come since I started my DA.

I'm still working EVER SO SLOWLY on the last part of my Avengers comic, as well as other art projects. I'm caught between three fandoms at the moment and it's bizarre. :o 

I wasn't into any for a really long time and then bam! Avengers, League of Legends and (as weird as it sounds) Final Fantasy 7/8. And let's not talk about all of the original stories going on. :faint:

Anyway! Back to drawing with me! :D I love the holidays but honestly, I'll be glad when they're over because I'm so crazy busy.

Hi everybody! I'm chugging along right into the holidays now, so I was thinking of ways to give back to everyone who has watched my art and supported me over the years. :D 

For the first three of my watchers that reply, I'll draw you a chibi couple pic of your choice! :love: Just like my kiriban only line art. I was going to just pick randomly, but I was worried I might choose someone who is inactive.

SLOTS:
Two: Gakusangi
Three: Unclaimed

So just reply and say that you want one, then you can message me who exactly you want in the pic. :love: :heart:

I'm familiar with Avengers, League of Legends, Seeing Red and Resident Evil, but I can learn to draw pretty much anyone! :D Just point me to them.

Love you guys and thanks so much for enjoying my art! :hug: :heart:
