Welcome to my profile.
My real name is Eli, as seen in my username. I am a young amateur artist currently at the age of Twenty, and I usually draw as a hobby. I also specialize in other forms of art, music design and video editing. I have dreams to eventually animating my stories and characters.
I mostly specialize in drawing an art style that resembles the Japanese Anime/Manga art-style. I am capable of drawing humanoids of both typical human features, and of bestial and/or alien physiology. These characters are part of the story which is currently in the making.
I have a tendency to get a little distracted from my art, and may take a long time to finish something. I also acknowledge that my art is far from perfect, and still has room for improvement. My main goal on my social media is to tell stories through my characters and worldbuilding.
I may also post journals which contain updates on both my art and my personal life. Although be warned, I'm still a teenager. So if your an adult you may find some of the things I say to be a little angsty.
Anyway, to whoever views this, I hope you enjoy my art.
By the way, if you ever feel like commenting, that's great! But please try not to be rude. Constructive criticism is fine, but I'd much rather not see this relatively friendly site become a cesspool of negativity. Don't worry, no hard feelings. I just want everyone to be nice, okay? Thank you.

2021 was not that different from 2020, albeit it somehow felt less chaotic.
I didn't have as much anxiety as I did in the previous year. More than anything, I recall feeling very annoyed and exceptionally bored. After all, I didn't really get out of the house much, no thanks to COVID-19.
But apart from that, another present arrived recently. It is the "Jurassic Park" book, from which the movie was adapted from. It was sent over by a friend of my mother's who thought I would be interested in reading it. Maybe I will read it once I've finished "The Three-Body Problem." I haven't done so yet, but I do plan on doing so very soon.
Now onto other matters. I really need to sort out my faith, as well as my understanding of God. I understand that not everyone believes this sort of thing, but this is what I choose to believe. My faith has been really challenged lately.
As for my hobbies, I've been thinking about writing a book soon at some point in the future. I already have a few notes. I've barely even begun writing it though.
On a random note, I watched the new "Dune" movie recently. I thought it was pretty good. In my opinion, much better than the 80's version. I enjoyed the new one better.
And yeah. That's pretty much it. This was comparatively shorter than all my other "New Year" journals. But there isn't really much to say.
I hope the next year gets better somehow. But I'm not having the highest expectations.
Anyway, for those of you who read this, I hope you all stay safe.
Thank you for reading, and have a Happy New Year.
