Red Giraffe - Handmade Dream Catcher by camelopardalisinblue

I think ten dollars would be a fair price. Especially considering it's hand-made. Though one thing I'd like to ask--is there any signif...


1. Nothing that I can think of should be added or tweaked. Perhaps in the first paragraph, a very very brief and still vague indication...

Hey everyone. Let me slink in ashamedly for just a few moments to give you an update on my current situation.
I've been stymied for a few months in an absurd depression, mainly because I'm an idiot and didn't manage my schedule properly so I got stuck doing school projects last minute and never had time for anything else other than passing out and sleeping. A lot of things have happened--I've changed my major in college from Creative Writing to Chinese, with hopefully a minor in art. A lot of stuff went into the decision, and what came out of it were depressing realizations about reality and that shit's ramping up and I have to get myself together or I'll never succeed and do the things I want to with my life.

Not entirely bad, just sucks the wind out of me.

On the writing and art front, collectively, I've had such a hard time doing anything even when I had time for a plethora of reasons that would bore even me to death. But the idea is that, now that the semester is ending and I'm not falling-over-myself tired anymore, I'll manage to stop dragging my feet a little.

I will be posting very soon. I've finished several daunting paintings, and am trying desperately to finish more. And once I finish the stuff I need to, I'll start sketching and posting on both DA and my tumblr, which you can find here: jessenosabaku.tumblr.com/
I post random stuff there all the time as well, and reblog cool arts or mangacaps if I find them, so expect a myriad of things.

I've obliterated a lot of my notifications because I'd been away so long that I had over 6,000, so if I've missed a bunch of your stuff, I'm sorry. I kept some notifications such as orribu's and UltraLiThematic and some others so in the next couple days I should be all caught up. However, all the journals are gone, I just couldn't bring myself to read through all of them.

I also still want to commission people! I'm just drop-dead broke right now. I blew my scant extra cash on two things:

ONE PIECE CARD DECK!! by Deer-Head

Please, if you're into One Piece and you don't know about these cards, buy some! Currently, there are only 50 decks left, and it's not certain if the decks will be restocked. I order from Deer-Head all the time and they're a hundred percent reliable in payment processing and getting the product to you. And as you can see, their drawing are always top-notch. Please support Deer-Head with commissions as well, should you come into some pocket money sometime. They give really cheap commissions.

The other thing I blew money on was these:

Thanks to all of my friends who have been supporting me in and out of this several month period. Orribu, Li, I'm lookin' at you! You guys never forgot about me, and it means a lot. Please continue to take care of me.
Raise Up a Cry for the Fallen Queen by JessenoSabaku
Raise Up a Cry for the Fallen Queen
Finally! Finished this like ... months ago but didn't get to scan it until I had everything in the batch ready.
I had wanted to do a painting of Otohime for a long time, but didn't know what to do. Originally, I just had her standing there, all bloodied. At the time I was working on it, my friend and I were at our studio and I showed it to her. She kind of made a face and said, "It's good, but something's missing. She's a fish-person, right? So why don't you put some waves in there? You know, like from one of those old Japanese paintings." If it hadn't been for her suggestion, this drawing wouldn't be half as good as it turned out.

I miss Otohime dearly.
Done with watercolor and manga pens.
Thanks to my friend mivaldi for editing the drawing into transparency--the same friend who suggested the waves to me.

Slayers' Banquet by JessenoSabaku
Slayers' Banquet
A banquet of many much tiny foods, because apparently I can't draw anything to scale.
This was a big drawing I worked on for quite a while. Much longer than I should have, honestly. But I'm still happy with it, and had fun. My first Fairy Tail drawing! Such an awesome series. vuv
Sorry for all the muddy colors and how difficult it is to separate all the people and objects from one another.
I'll be drawing more of Fairy Tail soon. Including Makarov! I love the old guy so much.

Done with watercolors and colored pencils. Don't own Fairy Tail, of course!

Fight Today to Live Tomorrow by JessenoSabaku
Fight Today to Live Tomorrow
A-EVE knows. A-EVE sees. A-EVE has a sensitive hearing condition so please be quiet and don't blow his eardrums out.
This is a drawing I finished a long time ago for UltraLiThematic, of her character Adam. He's a super cool announcer dude who, when he's not leading a rebellion, is doing commentary for baseball games on his days off. The Boston Red Sox like him particularly, but they just wish he would stop encouraging the crowd to create chaos. It's hard to play baseball when people are throwing cans and hot dogs at you.

Happy Halloweeny, Li! Hopefully will be doing A-EVE in the future.
Check out more about Li's character here:

Venomous Voice

Link because for some reason thumbs aren't working.

Big thanks to my friend mivaldi who did the editing for the text and image transparency. Cause I can't do none of that.

Dear Corazon - Luffy x Law - 02 by JessenoSabaku
Dear Corazon - Luffy x Law - 02
The second part of the little trading arrangement I had with Deer-Head! This one turned out ... better than the other one, maybe? Hey, at least I got a little bit of sick, twisted humor in there. And I finally got to draw Law being carried like a sack of potatoes ... in an awkward shot and pose ...

Hoping you like this one, Deer-Head.

Done with watercolors, colored pencils, and manga pens.

Jess here. A lot of things have changed over the years since I've started on DA. I've met a lot of wonderful people whom I admire, and have improved at least a little bit (or so I like to think). I will always strive to become better at art, and to always value learning new things.
To all of my friends, thank you for supporting me. I'm sorry my updates are infrequent and that I don't always comment on your posts. My extremely late New Year's resolution is to work on that. And to anyone new to my channel, I hope you can find something in my works worth enjoying.

I love you all, and I do non-profit commissions.
Updates are slow. Deadlines might be missed.
Please take care of me.
