Woah, I haven't made a new journal in forever. =O I know I've been kind of...absent from DA for a long while. And I can sum up the reasons in four words. Holidays, college, new computer. Yeah, the holidays were kind of hectic and busy for me. To top it off, I had major trouble getting into college here due to a lot of things. A few people already know why, but to sum it up really quickly:
First I enrolled in University of Colorado Colorado Springs, and tried to sign up for classes. Couldn't because sign up for anything because I had to go to this annoying Initiation thing, which only happened on certain days. Due to scheduling problems I had to wait until the 18th or 19th of December before I got to the initiation, which means I couldn't sign up for classes until it was very late. This left me with horrible time slots, and I'm talking "7:00pm -9:00pm" type time slots. I was also going to use some military benefits that require me to take a full load of classes, AND to top it off I have to schedule all my classes around a buss system that stops running at around 5:00pm. And finally, I had to take a bunch of prerequisite classes to get into the engineering degree program. So obviously that wasn't going to work out.
We came up with a last minute solution, and when I say last minute I seriously mean it. I enrolled in a local community college, Pikes Peak, two or three days before it closed for christmas break. I'm now in classes and on schedule...except for my Federal Student Aid stuff which keeps being denied for a variety of paper work reasons...I just...really hate FAFSA, and anyone who has had to use it for college probably agrees with me. Wonderful and useful thing to help with college, a real pain in the ass to do. -_-
So yeah, that's what I've been busy with. On the upside, I have a desktop in my room now, so yay.
Now onto the OC feature.
--------------Everyone with drawn OCs are welcome to participate (original post was not specific about the OC being drawn, but my thing's all about the visual so yeh... sorry for you writers out there...)RULES (please read)1. For the first 5 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters I like the most and comment my choice. (I will go to your gallery and pick one character and one picture I like, you don't need to tell me which one) This feature is for original creations only, no fan-characters.2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! I'll feature you after you've made the journal.
's Rurei (she's the little tiny in the Neko's mouth)I adore little Rurei. She has almost everything I enjoy seeing in a person and a character. She's smart, funny, quick on her feet, and empathetic of others. She's also brave, insanely brave. Heh, braver then Prave even. And to top it off, she doesn't rely on magic to get things done. Don't get me wrong, I like magic, but sometimes it feels like a copout for tinies her size. Instead she relies on her wits, the surroundings, and a few poitons and items that she carries around. And to make it even better, her equipment she carries makes sense. She doesn't have a batman-esque utility belt with an answer to everything. She can, and is, very vulnerable at times, and she knows it. But despite that, she will still put herself into danger to save...well...anyone really. And she really needs more art with her in it. XD
