So I've decided that I'm going to do a little project to help get back into the swing of doing personal work, and also to practice drawing humans again.

I'm going to be doing pin ups of various fictional ladies from films, TV programs, comics, graphic novels, games, etc, that I like (or other people seems to like) and I'm running low on ideas. Ha.

Any suggestions? The pictures will all be pin ups, some more raunchy than others possibly. Undecided as to how far I'll be taking each picture. I'll see where I go with the first few I guess. I may or may not put their love interests in there with them. Depends on my mood. ;)

So far I've got:  (in no particular order)
- Harley Quinn - (Batman)
- Tank Girl - (Tank Girl)
- Buffy - (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
- Morrigan - (Dragon Age)
- Ryoko - (Tenchi Muyo)
- Lara Croft - (Tomb Raider)
- Tifa Lockhart - (FFVII)
- Leeloo - (5th Element)
- Jean Grey/Phoenix - (X Men)
- Rogue - (X Men)
- Black Cat - (Spiderman)
- Zoe Washburne - (Firefly)
- Miho - (Sin City)
- Chun Li - (Street Fighter)
- Sheeva - (Mortal Kombat)
- Jessica Rabbit - (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)
As I'm pretty dead with regards to personal work at the moment, I thought you guys out there would like to see what I am working on.
All of my time at the moment is being eaten up by various projects at university, and occasionally I get some time to work on commissions.

All of my uni work (the better stuff anyway) and sketches and more professional stuff is posted on my art blog at:

mickeyila.blogspot.com/

Check it out if you want to see what all my time is used up doing. ^^;

I'm in the process of moving into a rented student flat, and well, tbh nothing is going right and I'm really stressed, but there's not really anything that can be done about it.
The only day I can sign the contract is the day I move in, so they want a deposit and the first months rent in cash (over £1000/$2000), and they need a guarantor, but I don't have one because most of my family has emigrated. They've left it really late before telling me this so now the only people I have who can be guarantors for me live faaaar away, so I'm going to have to spend loads of money to visit them on sunday and monday, because I'm working saturday and tuesday... and moving on the wednesday.

I just feel totally alone right now. I have no family around me right now, and my boyfriend is off round his mates tonight. Because I know have to visit my grandparents on sunday/monday, that leaves me tonight, tomorrow night and monday night to pack everything for the move. FFS!!!
I'm so angry and emotional right now, and the fact I'm due on right now and already over a week late REALLY isn't helping.
*explodes*
This is the first time I've ever been through this sort of situation... and just really wish my mum was here to help me through this. I feel so naiive and little. My current home is with my boyfriend and his parents, so it wasn't an official move. Now it is official, and I'm completely lost in the beaurocracy and money.

So basically, this is just a journal to say that commissions are closed right now. And I won't have internet access for some time. I honestly don't know how long. I'm going to have to open them when I get the net back though, because this move is going to completely wipe me out, after only the first months rent and the safety deposit. T~T
I just hope my student loan comes in quickly, otherwise I'm not going to be able to even make it through the first month of my course.

I feel so shit right now.
Bye Guys.

I'm running off to New Zealand to visit my mummy. :D

Basically, I won't have much internet access, and I won't have access to photoshop or my computer, so don't expect any art from me for a while.

I can't wait to see my mum. I've missed her so much this past year.

26 hour flight with refuelling stop half way... then a 3 hour wait, then another 45 minute flight. Yay. ¬¬
Going via LAX on the way there, then coming back via Bangkok. Gotta get a domestic plane from Aukland. I am looking forward to that bit. Gonna be flying real low over NZ, so I'll get to see loads if it's a clear morning. :D
I'll be arriving in Aukland at 5:30am. Not so thrilled about that part.


Later dudes. I'll be back in a month. (15th July)
Whakatane here I come!

Okay, so I'm having a mild dilema regarding my hair...

I currently have the sides and back shaved at a grade 2, and the top at a grade 4, as can be seen in this picture taken a couple of days ago.
img.photobucket.com/albums/v23…

HOWEVER...
for a long time now I'm been contemplating shaving it all off completely.

I have loads of factors regarding why I should and shouldn't do it...

PRO:
1) My hair grows really quickly, so if it looks bad, it'll only look bad for a few weeks.
2) At my current length, I need to wear a hat in the sun, which makes me sweat like mad. If I shave it all off, then I won't need to wear a hat cus I'll be able to just smother my head in sun cream.
3) I wanna see what it looks like lol
4) Dan thinks it'll be sexy XD

CON:
1) My land lady will FREAK when she gets home from work
2) ...erm...
3) Might look a bit poo?
4) Admittedly, I'm a little nervous

Here's a picture of me when I had the sides completely shaved when I had a mohawk, so you can see kinda what it'd half look like. XD

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK!?!?!?

TO SHAVE OR NOT TO SHAVE!?!?!?!?

I've been sculpting madagascar hissing cockroaches for uni, and I've really been enjoying it.
So I was wondering...

Would anyone be interested in commissioning one?

They're about 1/2 inch thick and 5 inches long.
Custom painted to your design.
Each has a unique cute little expression.
Ive tried to keep them quite realistic.
Made from super sculpey.

Starting at $8/£5 each?

Heres the example: mickeyila.deviantart.com/art/C…

Yep. It's my 19th birthday today.

I spent last night eating lots of food, playing Little Big Planet, and watched;
Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl (fucking AWESOME film!)
Black Sheep
Trainspotting
Dog Soldiers.
It was me, Nurgles-Champion, ShinigamiNecromancer, UNiCOMICS-Chowkofsky, Gareth and James.

It was such a good night. :D

:iconnurgles-champion: bought me the most awesome book as a present! It's a digital art book, filled with tutorials and hints and tips, which are all fantastic, so I'll be using that a lot in the near future as I feel that my art has become stale and I need to try something new. :D

So yeah, for the first time in weeks and week,s I've had some time to myself to just chill out and have fun. And I'm loving every minute of it while it lasts. :D

I'm going to be away from tomorrow (8th) until either wednesday or thursday next week. (14th or 15th). I have an interview for Kingston University on the 13th, do I'm going up there and staying with my best friend who lives in Kingston. He's going to show me around the town and let me experience uni life for a bit.
I desperately want to get into this course. Please, let my interview go okay...
I may be around to comment and stuff if I can get my hands on an internet connection, but I won't be able to do any art or anything.

Also, on a happy note... my mum has booked my flight to go to New Zealand and visit her! I'm really excited, but I'm shitting myself because I'm going to have to make the journey all on my own, and I've never been on a plane by myself before.... let alone a plane journey from England to New Zealand... Dx I'm so scared!

Anyway,
I'll be back next week. Bye guys...

Wish me luck!

I know my custom lupe adoptables are pricey... so how much would people be willing to pay for them in neopoints?

At the moment;
Version 2 adoptable customs are 40,000 np
Version 3 adoptable customs are 20,000 np

Basically, I'm trying to raise loads of neopoints to get some paintbrushes, but I don't want to start doing commissions for neopoints as I need real money more. That's where my adoptables come in. They're alot quicker to do than commissions and aren't worth much in real money.

Here's my wishlist for neopets...
seece petpet = 50,000 np
zomutt petpet = 150,000 np
faerie petpet pb = 700,000 np
pirate petpet pb = 200,000 np
mutant petpet pb = 200,000 np
ghost petpet pb = 140,000 np
darigan petpet pb = 170,000 np
plushie petpet pb = 40,000 np
darigan paint brush = 1.4 million np
tyrannian paint brush = 260,000 np
pirate paint brush = unknown (alot)
plushie paint brush = 8 million np
striped paint brush = 120,000 np
as you can see I have a lot of saving to do. So far I have... 20,000 np. lol

And yes, I know I'm sad. I'm ashamed of myself and I hate neopets to the end of the earth for being so damn addictive. This always happens. I'm inactive on it for about a year, then I randomly go back on it and become addicted again until I become bored and go inactive again for another year. The cycle just goes on and on. lmao

Hey guys.

Basically, I'm doing my final major project for uni about people and their pets, and this is where you guys come in.

I'd like to hear any funny/interesting/sad stories you have about your pets, past and current.
Perhaps you had a favourite pet that was unlike any of the other pets you've had? Did your parents tell you that your cat ran away when it actually got run over?

I'd like to know lots of little details really. What species they are/were, their names, your name, how old they are, how old they were when they died, how old you were when you got them/they died, how you felt about that pet, how you still feel about them, do you miss them, did you keep anything to remember them by? etc etc etc.

Also, could you give me a link to where I could find a photo of that pet, or a photo of you, or even better - a photo of the both of you together. The more photos the better really.

So basically, the more detailed you can be with your stories and the more photos you can provide, the better really. I really appreciate any help, and I know that some of this is quite person and deep in our minds. Having lost a greyhound in 2006 who was like a brother to me, I know the pain of losing someone so close to your heart.

The more people I can hear from, the more research I have to play with for my project, so if you could please find the time to share your stories with me, or maybe link other people this way, I'd be ever so grateful.

Thanks so much guys.
:heart:

This is my new account.

I've come from :iconilovevillevalo: because I've had that account for over 4 years and it's seriously outdated. I needed a fresh start with a more official account name.

So yeah, I'll start updating this account soon.
