And I intend to be gone for longer, but I figured I should probably say something as some people have seemed to ask about me. 

Overall, things are going kind of meh for me. Thinking more positively, I've been happier (somewhat?). There are days that go by and I feel great. Then there will be some number of days in a row when I'm depressed the entire day. I think the longest that has gone on has been 5 days, but that was only one time. 

I've been kept very busy here. I don't even really want to list all the crap I have to do. I've done a little personal art, but really not all that much. I've practically been living in the art annex and the library for the past few days trying to keep up with everything. Next week I will be starting my job. 

Some things I think I need to discuss... Most of you know the emotional roller coaster I've been on for the past year or so... I know I'm not the only person with problems, so please don't take this that way... I just haven't been motivated to move forward with many of my personal projects (Cirque Sinistre being one of them). It makes me sad to say this, but I am very much considering closing the group. It's not just that I've been busy, but it's been my internal issues getting in the way as well. I'm sorry if that upsets anyone. It upsets me a little bit too. This isn't set in stone yet, but it has been on my mind. 

I also apologize to the contest winners. I know I have only gotten one contest prize done... and I feel awful about that... I honestly don't have any sort of motivation to draw the prizes... None at all. Therefore, I don't think I can go through with drawing the rest of them. HOWEVER, I am willing to buy you some points if you would take that in place of the art. I do apologize... And I think this is really all I can do to compensate at the moment. 

If I do close Cirque Sinistre, I plan on giving back any of the points I have left to the people who donated them to me. 

I am also not doing roleplays anymore... I've done a few small silly rp's with Haley, but aside from that I don't have enough energy to do any in-depth roleplaying. I'm sorry if this upsets anyone... I just cannot do it. I'm not motivated. It's not fun to play with someone who has no motivation to do something. 

I am also considering quitting DA. I talked about this a while back and am considering it more so now than before. I never really realized how much stress I felt being a part of this website... I have no idea why this site stresses me out so much, but ever since I've been offline... I've been doing better. I haven't been nearly as self-conscious as I have been for the past few months. This is another reason why I've avoided logging onto DA. I wanted to see if my mood would change if I was offline for an extended period of time... And it did. Quite the improvement. 

Sorry to those of you who were worried about me for nothing. I'm as alright as I'll ever be for the time being. I'm just taking time away from being online. 

Nothing is finalized yet. I still consider myself on a bit of a hiatus. 

Logging off for the time being. Talk to you later.

Something about this weekend has been a little off to me... Not sure what... Not sure how I should be feeling... So I just decided to take a break and do some personal art. Nothing super fancy, but enough to let my mind wander to my happy place~

So this is another alternate universe Leia... It's for another story of mine, but more of a personal one. I guess it's kind of meant to be more of a vent story, something I can work on when I just feel I need to write about something whether it be good or bad. It's one of 2 vent stories I have and is definitely the more light hearted of the two xD...

Her design isn't final, but I'm getting closer to designing what I want. I don't get to draw that often, so I have noticed more flaws in my art which upsets me greatly. If I had to name something I disliked about this picture... I'd have to say her proportions are terribly off. If I had to say something I liked, I would have to say the pose. It's different from what I'm used to. I'm trying to work on more action poses.

Contest Prize 1: Haku, it rhymes with shampoo by Chiakikat
Contest Prize 1: Haku, it rhymes with shampoo
Aha.... Aha!... Ah.... I've finally been able to do at least one of the contest prizes. I feel somewhat accomplished this week. I still have 2 more to go though~

I wasn't sure how this would turn out since the pose is something different than I'm used to, but I don't think I did too bad. I think it was also a challenge trying to coordinate Haku's colors. I looked up a few different pictures of him online and I had a hard time distinguishing which colors were what exactly xD.... But I don't think I did too bad. I still like it despite the colors being a tad bit off. 

If it's not to your liking Ori, I can re-do it.

Why hello there you beautiful, wonderful, creature, you~<3 I just wanted to welcome you to my page and tell you how fabulous you're looking today. I love what you did with your hair~ What? You didn't do anything with your hair? Then I suppose you just wake up this beautiful everyday~<3 Hm? Me? A kiss-ass? Yes, I am... And you are most welcome, Gorgeous ;)

I'm Chiakikat, Chia for short. Don't call me Chi (it's my friend's nickname and I don't like to feel I'm getting confused with her). I'm an aspiring artist who enjoys anime and manga. I love to draw and sculpt... And every once and a while I like to experiment with other media as well. I really enjoy creating my own characters either for stories or roleplaying. However, I really only roleplay with people I know well.

I do not have an official drawing style, so you will notice much of my art is not all in the same drawing style. I'm currently working to find my own style~<3

Please ask for my consent before using my artwork for anything. You do not have permission to repost my artwork on your page. You my not make bases out of my work. You may not post my art on another site without my permission. If you post my art elsewhere, you must also credit me.

Donate

Chiakikat has started a donation pool!
111 / 1,000
Hello! I decided that I wanted to open up a donation pool for my group Cirque Sinistre! I guess I don't have much of a use for points anymore, but it might get people more interested in participating in group contests~<3

So if you would like to make a donation. It would be greatly appreciated. I don't really have a goal... I suppose you can just donate what you want XP (I just put a number there because I had to...)

You must be logged in to donate.
