PERSONAL UPDATE


Hey guys!

Starting off with a baby update as promised! I'm currently 31 weeks and 6 days pregnant. She continues to do very well, and she's active with a good heartbeat. :) We had our first baby shower this past weekend, and we received lots of wonderful gifts. People have been incredible to my husband and I and I swear I'm not going to need to buy that much after the second shower is over more than likely. People have been stocking us up on diapers, wipes, clothes, toys, etc you name it! We've even had the crib, cradle, and glider provided for us! I feel blessed and thankful from the bottom of my heart.

Baby's next doctor visit is on April 27th to confirm my placenta previa has cleared up, and then she has a standard check-up on May 3rd. Then on May 4th we'll be touring the maternity ward of the hospital where she'll be born and confirming registration. Second baby shower is on May 13th right before Mother's Day! LOL Our mothers planned it, and they didn't realize until just recently that it's the day before. Haha, it's fine though since we have a bunch of people still coming.

On top of the above we're transferring to the bigger apartment this coming weekend, and I have my weekly physical therapy sessions for a stuck rib that's been aggravated by the pregnancy. Nothing horrid, and I go to physical therapy to help it start moving again.

In between everything we've been finalizing things for baby's arrival and packing (and soon unpacking). Oh! And we had our maternity photo shoot last weekend with Kristin Shyla Photography. Here is a teaser from the event! :heart:

We had a great time, and we're super happy with how things have been going for us. I'll try to have another update for everyone in a week or so! Until then, I hope you have a great week! :D

Love Always,
Destinie

WELCOME!


If you have any questions not answered here, please feel free to ask! :D

DEVIANTART RELATED


:bulletred: What is the symbol next to your username?:
+ Many of you have asked how I got the fancy symbol next to my name and what it means. Well, that's the Senior Member symbol. I received this symbol after I served on the Community Relations team for the Anime/Manga community here on deviantART. It was my pleasure and an honor to serve. :rose: You can learn more about becoming a senior member below:

FAQ #29: How do I become a Senior Member?

TOOLS


:bulletred: What tools do you use?:
+ For traditional art I use a mechanical pencil, sketchbook, and if I want color I will use Prismacolor Pencils.
+ For digital art I do all my sketching, planning, linework, and painting in PaintTool SAI. I sometimes bring the piece into Photoshop CC in order to do some editing as well. I draw with a Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet.

ART SHARING / USING


:bulletred: May I share your artwork with others on other social media?:
+ I absolutely do love for my artwork to be shared! I do request that you first speak to me about it before doing so. The reason for this is that I may already have the artwork on that particular social media, and if I do I would appreciate having more traffic directing to my original image from that source. (ie: Reblogging my Tumblr post is better than creating a new one with my image).
+ If you share my work, please include a link back to the original piece as well as give me credit for the work so that the people you share it with can easily locate me and the art.

:bulletred: May I use your artwork?
+ Please directly message me with the piece of art you are requesting to use and we will discuss permissions. I may require a fee for using the piece depending on what it is used for.

COMMISSIONS, ART TRADES, FREE REQUESTS, COLLABORATIONS


:bulletred: Are you open for commissions?:
+ Yes! You can see more information about my commissions in the following links:
+ Commission Information - Read this journal for info on what I will and will not draw, how to request, how to pay, and to see available slots.
+ Commission Prices - This journal contains the information on the commission types I offer and their prices.

:bulletred: Are you open for art trades?:
+ No, I am not open at this time. When I do art trades it is almost always with really close friends that I know offline. There are rare occasions that I will open up art trades with my watchers. When I do so it will be via a journal. Make sure you're watching my journals if this is something you may be interested in. If you're interested in art from me now, please consider purchasing a commission.

:bulletred: Can you please draw me a picture for free?
+ Sorry, I do not do free art. If you're interested in art from me, please consider purchasing a commission.

:bulletred: Will you do an art collaboration with me?
+ No, I only do art collaborations with really close friends that I know offline, and even then I rarely do it. If you're interested in coloring some of my art, please consider purchasing a line art commission.

PERSONAL UPDATE


Hey guys!

First off a quick update on baby! She's still doing really well, and her next check up is on the 19th after which they will start seeing me the OB office every two weeks. We're currently 30 weeks and 3 days pregnant, so we're 9 weeks and 4 days away from her due date, and 5 weeks 4 days away from her being full term! Exciting! :la:

Secondly, we're transferring to a different apartment at the end of this month. Still living in the same apartment complex, but we're just moving our stuff across the street to a two-bedroom on the ground floor to make things easier on us with the baby, and just in case I have to have a c-section I need to avoid stairs as much as possible. LOL We wanted to buy a house, but ultimately for the sake of finances and sanity decided it was wiser to wait at least 6 months before starting the house hunt. I am really looking forward to finally getting a permanent home instead of moving every 1 to 2 years, but I will wait one more year if it means everything going as smoothly as possible. But finalizing on a house while dealing with a newborn just sounded like the work of a madman, and we opted against it. :laughing: Plus this gives us more time to save up a hefty down payment, so win-win!

After we get settled at the other apartment, and I finish getting little girl's nursery set up, I may have some time to slip in some more art before she's born in June. We'll see! It's my intent at least, but no guarantees with anything right now since I'm really having to live one day at a time at the moment.

In exciting art news, my husband surprised me today with some new art tools! I have not been able to stop grinning! And I squealed a lot when I opened the package. LOL He got me Body-Kun and Body-Chan which are very friendly poseable models to use for art reference / anatomy study. I often spend hours on trying to find just the right anatomical references online or trying to take just the right pictures of myself and my husband to use as references, and it gets tiring, so this should hopefully free up time for me quite a bit during the art planning process. I have a standard art model, but I hate him. LOL He isn't very flexible and has turned into a piece of decoration at this point. These two are quite versatile and I've had them recommended to me A LOT, so I am ECSTATIC to finally have them in my possession. :heart:

But that's really all that's going on with me right now. My life is mostly all about the baby at the moment. Baby Showers, Photo shoots, Doctor Appointments, and Cleaning / Moving. :laughing: In any case, I hope you're all doing well, and I'll try to have another update for you in a week or so! :D

Love Always,
Destinie
