Sweating and fangirling and Tracon

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 21, 2014, 4:29 AM

"It's time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through"


One human being tired of the heat, reporting for duty! Well, to those of you living in the warmer areas of the world 25-30 degrees Celcius is probably nothing but pleasant warmth, but yours truly always gets sick during the warmest time of the year (was once again down with fever, as I am almost every single year in July) and I absolutely hate temperatures above 25 degrees, it's nothing but constant discomfort day in day out (except in the middle of the night, when I have to be sleeping anyway so I cannot enjoy the coolness) and my skin's extremely irritated from the constant sweatiness. Autumn, come soon, I miss you. :( Heat does not suit me at all! One good thing about all this is that swimming by the nearby river feels heavenly and it's a very quiet, secluded place away from the more popular swimming places, so that's the one great thing about the current heat.

Apart from that, my summer seems to be full of fangirling and other pleasantries. I'm head over heels in love with the new Sailor Moon anime (fkdsafgjdsfs MERCURYYYY) and plan to make some tribute fanart for the next cons, I started rereading the manga once again, I've been replaying FF8 recently and reliving all the good memories and getting drawing ideas, and my head's filled to bursting with ideas for The Hobbit and especially the Reverse Big Bang event starting at Tumblr. So many fandom things recently, what a time to be alive! :love:

Also, Sadyna and I managed to get ourselves a table from Tracon after a pause of several years, so we will be working hard to make the con a fun experience. As you might know already, Tracon is open overnight as well so artists can keep their tables open at whichever hours suit them best - convenient for us, since we're usually not the earliest risers and don't show up at the crack of the dawn like some morning people do. Personally, Tracon is and has been for many years my favourite annual con so I'm very glad to be selling there again after such a long pause. :) Hope it's going to be a good one!

Cheers!
-Aura

Frequently Asked Questions
What do you use for creating your illustrations?
I list my tools in the description under every image I post, but I mostly work with watercolour, bottled inks and a variety of fineliners.

What do you use for sketching?
Coloured pencils.

Do you take requests?
No.

Do you do art trades?
Only with friends.

Do you take commissions?
Yes! My commission guidelines are available right here!

Are you self-taught or have you studied art?
A bit of both. I have a Bachelor's Degree in fashion design (graduated in 2012) but I don't work in the creative field and beyond that degree I've never taken a single drawing class in my life.

Why don't you draw "_______" anymore?
My interests change and mature all the time just like everybody else's and I might just grow out of things I used to like before.

Do you have a Tumblr?
Aye, that I do. All aboard the crazy train. I also have a separate art Tumblr for only my art posts, since my main blog gets run over by fandom stuff all the time. Find my art blog here.

Do you have a Facebook?
Dread Ones be damned, no. Never.

Do you have Skype/MSN/Steam account/etc.?
Sorry, I only share such information with close friends and family.

We at YuriCult strive to be the biggest yuri group not only on dA but on the net, so it pains us when fine members like yourself choose to leave.
We ask for your feedback on what we did wrong as group in not bringing you all your yuri needs and in turn what we as leaders of YuriCult must to so we do not loose any more of our precious members. Thank you so much for your time and feedback.

I'm just spending less and less time on dA these days since I favour Tumblr over other websites, so I'm slowly going through which groups I'm in and leaving the ones where I don't really contribute anything anymore. I'm just not very active here so club activities have become rather pointless for me, and I don't have the time to look through member submissions from other members either because I work very long days. So nothing you guys did wrong, I'm just trying to manage my limited time here to my best ability. :)
