Happy Holidays All!!

Wow, so a lot has gone down since my last journal, so lets start off with... I'm out of classes for the next two weeks!(we start back up Jan. 8th) and I'm already being told to go out on errands and to clean my room.(a mess I did not make!! Not to mention I already know my friends are gonna want me to go out with them and frankly I haven;t had time to enjoy being out of school... Especially with the Holidays. I do want to spend time with people I haven't been seeing, especially family... but I also want to play games that I've been wanting too, draw and surf the web and such...

Well out of the rant and into the actually stories of the journal. Last week for one of my other classes finals, there was the "On the Spot" Competition at my school and I was one of the 5 finalist to compete.

The competition had a prior competition where every week a theme is given, which you have to design a image of sorts, for 5 weeks and then at the end of those 5 weeks, a score is tallied and the 5 finalist with the highest score go at it at a major competition called "On the Spot"

I manage to make it to the final rounds, with just one entry from the 5 week set, and then I went up against what was supposed to be 4 other competitors in a 2 round competition of a time of 20 mins each to design the theme given to us.

Round 1 "When Little Things Mean a Lot" (I know I spelled "A lot" wrong...)
20 min. I scored 4/5 points


Round 2 "As Time Goes By" (May have quote that wrong)
20 min. I'm not sure what I scored, but I tied and then went into a Lightning Round


Lightning Round "Like a feather in the Wind"
10 min.


And after that nerve recking event, I won. =P I happy but I sure do wish the other competitors showed. I won a small plastic trophy saying Awesome Job and I think First Prize, a T-shirt from the school only it's large enough to be PJ's =P and a New Bamboo Blue Wacom, may use it or give to my sis.

The Miss G3 competition finally ended and I won 2nd place, Miss Dayton won altogether and I'm super happy she won and that Miss Greece got 3rd! Congrats yall! =P My prizes are:
-3 month subscription to Deviantart
-30$ Prize Money
-Full color Bust of Runner up with a dozen roses. Winner gets to choose if she is wearing her National Costume, swimsuit or evening wear in portrait!

Well I'm going to try and enjoy this vacation before I begin my 2nd to last term and my senior thesis. I really hope my grades come out A's and B's... I can't wait for Diego and I's trip to Las Vegas... it'll be something good for us.

Me and my family plan on going to Disney for 3 days for New Years. I want o head to a club with my friends this Friday again, not sure though if I'll be free. Wow this is a long journal... well Thank you for reading thus far, I appreciate it!! *hug* Happy Holidays all!!

Happy Birthday Sisters

Both my older Sister Maura and my younger sister Angelica's birthdays were within a week ago, Maura's on the 7th, and Angelica's on the 10th. I promised to draw them both a gift, Angelica responded first

I asked her what she wanted, and in a split second, she answered "Oseary doing Earthbending!!"

Oseary is her Ball Jointed Japanese Doll and character, and Earthbending is her favorite in the show 'Avatar: The Last Air Bender".

So here he is, Oseary... but not quite earthbending =P Hes in a Earthbending position and wearing Earth Kingdom type clothes, but hes not earthbending... hes also wearing shoes with soles, on which Earthbenders are not supposed to =P

She said she liked it alot though, so I'm happy about it, I'm just sorry I had to rush it because of finals.

Done in Photoshop, about 10 hours or work. But I'm actually really proud of this because I made a male character, sure hes a bit feminine, but its still a guy =P

Another Day in the Life of Sasha

So the 3rd round for the Miss G3 Contest entry for Evening Gowns has finally started and ended, heres my entry:

For a larger image and a description, go here: =P

Been busy with school lately, trying to pass with grades of at least B's or better. Hopefully I can get alot of that work in for these last 2 weeks of class...

Oh my God, I'm actually starting my Senior Thesis next quarterm meaning I have 2 terms left and I'm graduating! It's been a good long ~3 years, but I sure can't wait till its over ><

I went to a club friday night with my friends and my boyfriend, Diego. We had loads of fun, and I've been trying to find a way to exercise and I'm thinking of going to the club every friday and eating good to get back into modeling shape =P

Alison Mann came to our school last Thursday representing Nickelodean and all their possible jobs/internships available and how to apply. They seem to have a great environment, and good Character Designer jobs, but I'm not sure whether I should work fro them, they are a kids network and that provides some limits to my art. Alot of friends and professors were telling my that I should try it out... but I'm still to unsure.

Ballistic's Publishing Company, makers of the all famous Exotique and Expose artbook series, are looking for applicants for their next Expose 6 and Elemental 3 books. I want to send in some of my artworks, but I'm not sure which. I definately want to submit my 3DS Max piece:

Mine and Diego's Las Vegas Trip was moved to Jan 14th. Its not much of a problem except its during the 2 week of my 11 Term. Hopefully not to much homework, I'll only be missing out in one class though.

Gosh I wish I was modeling again, I really do miss it... maybe after school is over, I'll have time to start it back up, because I really enjoyed it. Well, I guess that's all for now, I'll update if needed but until next journal, b-bye =) and Thank you for reading.
