Come at me, bro.



I just got this bizarre urge to draw something sickeningly cute... 

71 deviants said Do it.
10 deviants said It had better be Zelda-related...
5 deviants said ...No, make it a sailor senshi.
3 deviants said There's no such thing as "sickeningly cute."
3 deviants said On second need more originality in your gallery.
No deviants said Don't. Stay in-character, woman.


UNIesque's Profile Picture
Artist | Digital Art
United States
A digital artist with a bachelor's degree in Art Studio and a focus in Electronic Art.
Other interests and areas of study include graphic design, the Japanese language, aerospace, and astronomy. I'm currently working on a master's degree in Executive Leadership (business).

My preferred art style is anime illustration as its unique charisma peaked my interest back in 1996, and still strikes me as a stunning and wonderful way to use imagination.

I associate myself with the saying, "Jack of all trades and master of none," because there are many things that interest me and that I've immersed myself in, but haven't yet mastered. Illustration, photography, acting, music, various aspects of design, creative writing, martial arts, sculpture, costuming and needlework, cinematography, modeling, astro sciences, and animation - to name a few.

Random fact: I make it a point to visit every one of my new watchers here on DA. Thank you so much for your support! :heart:

To Be Resolute - 2017

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 31, 2016, 7:13 PM

Bullet; White Bullet; Yellow Bullet; Orange Bullet; RedTo Be Resolute - 2017Bullet; Red Bullet; Orange Bullet; Yellow Bullet; White

Even less artwork than last I'm sorry...and I'm not at the same time. I have a lot planned for my art life, but I'm balancing it with career and school lives. I can't even imagine what I'd be going through with a family. :p But...I'm living life to the fullest. No regrets.

You know what I'm sick of? People telling 2016 to go to hell. Here's the thing...the year is going to end whether you get your pessimistic head out of your ass or not. Shut up and be the change you wish to see, because guess what...2017 could easily be worse. A new year is not going to equal a fresh chance for happiness unless you do something about your perspective. This is going to be what you make of it. 

"Easy for you to say," you may by thinking, "life is probably going fairly well on your end, otherwise you'd understand."
2016 was probably the worst of my 27 years...with 2015 in a close 2nd. We all have our trials. I'm quiet about most of mine on purpose, but I know crippling depression. I know paralyzing fear. I know what it's like to suffocate in the darkness of rock bottom. And yet it disgusts me to watch people crumble under under these things...fear, hate, and conflict...while I'm fighting with everything I've got to overcome. WAKE. UP. Trying to escape the hardship (and drawing attention to yourself whilst doing so) is setting you up for failure. Hell won't kill you if you turn the tables and let it grow you. Embrace the suck. It may last days, weeks, months, years...half a life-time...most of a life-time...but victory doesn't come without a price. The more you endure, the more you learn and gain the opportunity to teach others.


I resolved to...

Bullet; Yellow Continue to rebuild my self confidence and self esteem - a life-long process...still going
Bullet; Yellow Continue to strengthen my inner motivation and outer enthusiasm - same as above
Bullet; Yellow Better my stress management - same as above
Bullet; Green Control impulsive emotions - Haha...I'll give myself the green light here
Bullet; Yellow Stop procrastinating - getting better
Bullet; Green Grow as a leader - DONE and still growing
Bullet; Green Grow spiritually and morally - DONE...holy mother did this blow up this year...

I aspired to... 

Bullet; Yellow Re-achieve the outstanding level of fitness I had in 2010 - not quite, but I did make good progress
Bullet; Green Improve my illustration skills - DONE and still improving
Bullet; Green Improve my Japanese language skills - DONE and still working on it
Bullet; Red Make significant website overhaul progress - ...nope...
Bullet; Yellow Regain positive control of my time - kind of...needs more work
Bullet; Green Advance in my creative writing endeavors - DONE and still working
Bullet; Green Excel academically - DONE


I resolve to...

Bullet; Blue Become more confident in who I am in Christ
Bullet; Blue Accept the challenges that await me with dignity and matter how devastating
Bullet; Blue Better my stress management
Bullet; Blue Embrace single life
Bullet; Blue Better acknowledge/respond to needs and priorities
Bullet; Blue Grow as a leader
Bullet; Blue Grow spiritually and morally

I aspire to... 

Bullet; Blue Beat past year's 1.5 mile run time
Bullet; Blue Improve my illustration skills
Bullet; Blue Take and pass a Japanese proficiency test
Bullet; Blue Visit another new country
Bullet; Blue Start writing THE novel...
Bullet; Blue Excel academically

Continuing my master's degree. Slow process, but it's going well. PSA: don't take 2 compacted master's courses at a time while working full-time. That was stupid. 
I moved to the UK, btw. Temporary. But I get to hang with you crazy Brits for a while while you figure out your Brexit deal. I'm loving the pound value at the moment. ;p
And despite the harsh start to this journal, I still love you all. There's a lot going on, and I'm not always chipper; however, I'm endlessly thankful for your support and the unique parts you have to play in our world.

Here's to another year~! Ahooooy Matey!

If anyone would like to capture a screenshot of my 200,000th pageview and send it to me via note, I'll grant them a free single-character sketch request. Would do more if I had time, but I'm pretty swamped these days. Thanks for the continued support~!Huggle! 
You folks are awesome - thank's so much for this year's birthday wishes! :heart: I appreciate your thoughtfulness~
