[My main language is English, pero también sé un poco de español, así que siéntete libre para charlar conmigo si hablas español :)]

Hey there! I realize my name is awful long, so you can call me Jesters. :) I'm a freshman in college, and I spend more time drawing than is probably good for my grades. XD I'm just one of those people that retreat into stuff they love to do when they get stressed... and one of those things happens to be drawing.

Anywho, that being said-- I'm relatively new to this whole "art" thing.

I started drawing early January 2014, and at the time I had honest-to-god believed that I couldn't draw for my life. But then I started to free-hand draw cartoon characters on a random whim, and I found that I can actually draw. Sure, they weren't amazing, and they were just sketches, but this was a major improvement from my previous stick-figures and colorful squiggles.

Art... definitely saved me. I dunno what I would do now without it. It came at a perfect time in my life, when I needed something to grasp onto the most, and it's gotten me through some heavy stuff. Stuff I'm still going through. And it's hard to explain, but when I'm drawing I get into this zone and it gives me peace of mind. And to see the final product-- to see my slow-going improvements over the months-- gives me purpose and determination [I'm Undertale trash, haha] like little else does.

Ah, sorry, don't wanna get too heavy-- I like to think of myself as a friendly person, so feel free to send a message if you wanna chat! Y también hablo español! Un poco. Mas o menos, jaja ^^;

I also have a tumblr (Jestersofthemoon17) and a fanfiction.net account (Jesters of the Moon), although I mostly just reblog random junk on tumblr and I don't actually post any writing on ff.net-- I just review stories I love. I'm also a beta/co-author, though, for TooCreativeForLife over there, in case you wanted to check out her work. :) She's a great writer and a great friend of mine.

For my watchers: I ought to warn you guys about something-- I'm a horrible, terrible procrastinator. And I get distracted by 'real life' very easily. So one week I'll post a bunch of art, and then I could be MIA for two months. And then I'll come back with an apology, and the cycle continues. So watch me at your own risk XD Seriously, though, not kidding about the procrastination; I'm horrible with time management.

Hey guys I am a dummy!  It's been quite a while since I've done a journal, a little more than a year to be exact, actually XD Obviously I'm on top of my game, haha. 

Anywho, a few minutes ago it actually struck me that today marks the two-year anniversary of when I started drawing! On this exact date two years ago, I started drawing on a whim, and was compelled by drawn2pencils to start posting them on this site :D (Big Grin) 

I started with drawing these... eh, kinda not-great Sly Cooper drawings XD But at the time I was super proud of them, and at the very least I'm nostalgic toward them today, as they signify where it all started for me. But more than anything, I'm just really thankful towards drawing in general-- art has really given me... I dunno, purpose? It's one of the rare things that makes me feel truly-- happy, I guess, is the word. And art has become one of the only things that I'm very proud of, because it's something that I can continue to work on and improve. I'm not amazing right now, but it's something that I'm actually determined to stick with. I love doing it, and I want to get better at it, which I've come to find is an amazing anchor to have; to have something that you love doing. 

It's just very rewarding to go back and see the slow improvement over time, and it's really encouraging to have that. 

Anyways, I'm rambling, haha, I'll wrap it up now. Thank you so much to everyone who has ever fav'ed, commented, or said a kind/constructive word-- and especially thank you to the people who have been there since the beginning-- it means the world Huggle!

I'm pretty lazy right now and I completely forgot to upload some of my current/past work. I'll try to do it after a nap lol. Have a merry Christmas Jester.

Been quite sometime since last I looked in on your page.  I am so glad to see that you have not only continued drawing but that you have excelled in so doing.  Love the color work you've done too. :happybounce: :happybounce: :happybounce:

Thank you so much! It's nice to hear from you again, and I'm very glad to hear that you believe I've been improving :) Especially because you've been with me since the beginning and have seen my older works, haha. It means a lot. 

Thank you, though, truly. I have been drawing in the meantime since my last upload--quite a bit, actually, I should probably update that soon-- but I hit a bit of a wall in the last month or so and haven't had the time/inspiration to get back to it. But I think I'll try to get back on the horse, now, so to speak. :D (Big Grin)
