I'm not incredibly interesting. My name is Ysabel, and I live up in New York at a boarding school for much of the year, spending the other time split between Kentucky and Tennessee. I've grown a lot (I think??) in terms of maturity and style since I joined in 2009 with my first account here. Recently I've changed my direction a bit, hoping to develop a more realistic style and knock away just drawing animals, which has been a bit of a crutch for me up until this point.
Please don't be afraid to chat with me - I love meeting people!

Also roleplaying...roleplaying is an excellent way to get to know me.

I have a tumblr!

Hi guys! It's been a long time since I submitted a journal. 

Those (wonderful) few of you who still keep an eye on me may have noticed how large the gab in between pieces has grown. And how, despite the length, the quality of my art has fallen...deeply. I hardly put any effort into my sketches anymore, and I've grown very lazy about my entire creative and artistic process. 

I'd blame it all on school, and it is a large part, but I think a lot of it has to do with my own growth. Some of you may know that I attend a boarding school, which is more than just a school where one lives. It really is a far more rigorous schedule and workload - my day begins at 6:30 am and ends around 11:00 pm. Granted, not all of that time is spent in classes, but the little free time I have outside of the school day is spent studying or doing homework or preparing for other functions. It may not seem like a lot to some of you out there - but for me, it's exhausting. But I'd rather be nowhere else. 

I've lost a lot of my original interest in the internet, in particular dA, roleplaying, and recently even Tumblr. I've grown so much in terms of sociality and emotional intelligence. I no longer need the internet to escape, and at this point I think it's just holding me back from growing more. 

I still love drawing, I do. I'd never stop. But I just don't think I need dA to motivate me anymore. I don't need an audience, y'know? I have to learn to draw for myself, when I have the time - which is usually scarce these days. 

I'm going to back off of a few websites, some permanently. I can't know how I'll feel about it in a few weeks or months, but at this point in time, my leave from dA is not permanent. I'll visit from time to time. But it won't be my homepage any longer, alrighty? Alright. 

I'll still be reachable via my tumblr - There won't be much art, but I'm most active there. 

Later, y'all.

And I See
I passed out in the shower today. It was a little scary. 

This was very relaxing!

I found this amazing pencil brush, with a few others. 
Atom Dance by Askede
Atom Dance
We are each others hemispheres

I am finetuning my soul
To the universal wavelength
No one is a lover alone
I propose an atom dance

Our hearts are coral reefs in low tide
Love is the ocean we crave
Restlessly turning around and around
I am dancing towards transformation

Learning by love to open it up
Let this ugly wound breathe
We fear unconditional heart space
Healed by atom dance

When you feel the flow as primal love
Enter the pain and dance with me
We are each others hemispheres

We aim at peeling off
Dead layers of loveless love
No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home
Becoming themselves fully
It scares them off

When you feel the flow as primal love
Enter the pain and dance with me
We are each others hemispheres

No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home
You are my second hemisphere
The atoms are dancing

No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home

I've got me a bit of a crush. I don't really know what to do because I haven't had one in a long time. 
Anyone heard Björk's new album?
Asunder by Askede
Svasra's fancy attire. First time I've actually tried on the lineart. 

Inspired by concept art I've seen of Tevinter fashion from Dragon Age.
