Chasing Angels REVAMPED by ll-Hidden-ll
Chasing Angels REVAMPED
I decided to redo this particular piece. If you don't know, right now in Florida, seniors are out early before graduation. Im bored, and I just wanted to doodle a bit so I picked out an old piece and remade it. Its not my best, I know that for sure. But it was fun none the less to just redraw and work on these two characters again.

Check out the original here: ll-hidden-ll.deviantart.com/ar…

Anyway, I wish all of you guys a very happy summer.

So I am NOT giving up! 

Recently I have been going through some serious depressing stages. Although I've been hired by my church on a commission to do the nursery and my parents have been super supportive of me... Honestly? I've lost a lot of faith in myself. The endless cycle of Babysitting->Cook->School work->Bed->Babysitting Is really something that makes me lose touch with my art and my dreams. Even more so the lack of support on others has really just... well. It leaves me a little scared of my future. Just reading a story of some graphic designers who thought they could get far and didn't really breaks your heart and makes you want to crawl back into the corner and never come out.

Well. Trust me. I'm wanting to do that very badly still... But events that took place yesterday scared me into never saying that I'll give up again. 

For those who don't know- I have turned my life over to Christ, and so any religious comments and or beliefs in this I do verily happy say bear with. 

While working on my project in the nursery, I spilled my heart out to my sister saying that this was my last work. That after this I was quitting art and going to return my focus into the military. My sister was shocked and after arguing with me for an hour left me to myself. I was set on going- set on my plans. 
Then a woman walks into the nursery. I had never seen her before, so low and behold when she suddenly whipped out a business card and started talking to me about my artwork: i was pretty freaked out! I politely answered her questions and finally she told me she wanted to offer me a 12 month job with a children's ministry team making props and tee shirts: Videos etc: I burst into tears. Immediately after I was so sure that this wasn't for me and that I couldn't get anywhere in art... I'm offered a job. It was like God looking down at me, pointing an accusing finger that shouted "I'M NOT DONE WITH YOU YET SERENA FAITH THANE." 
So you know what? I'm not done yet. I'm going to continue with my goals. Even if none of my watches pay attention to me: I pray that you look down at your news feed and stop to read this. Stop to take time and pay attention to this miracle. Make this a sign for those who have given up on their dreams to keep going... because you just might not know what could happen if you do!

Just some grass by ll-Hidden-ll
Just some grass
So I've been very busy these past couple days working in my church's nursery :) I was commissioned by the children's pastor of my church to go ahead and paint the entire two room and hallway'd nursery these for shades of green, blend them and make a huge jungle/safari scenery in the whole area. I've been very mildly excited about the work- though the long hours have been killing me! Ugh! 
Anyway- Ill be posting more pictures as the progress comes along! :)

The truth is, I am slowly starting to loose grip on my dream... 
I really want to become a graphic designer, infect ive been very hopeful for it. But sometimes as im sketching, the thought tickles the back of my mind...


"What if I can't make it?"


The world is full of amazing, awesome artists. Just scrolling through devientart on a good day, and you can see it everywhere. So looking at my art, I really question if what I'm doing has any meaning. If I can even make it. Its disheartening.... honestly. 
The lack of notifications or favorites on my news feed makes it even worse... Plus the last few commissions ive done has ended in being jacked for art that no one pays for... I don't even see why I bother anymore...
