Welcome to my profile. My name is Eli, as seen in my username. I am a young artist currently at the age of 16 (almost 17) who likes to draw as a hobby. I also specialize in other forms of art, such as video editing and music design. I have dreams to eventually become an animator so I can animate my stories and characters. I mostly specialize in drawing an art style in resemblance to that of Japanese anime/manga. I also can draw anthromorphic characters. I am also working on a story which most of these characters are a part of.
Because I can get a little distracted, I may take long to upload a project that I've worked on to any account that I have. I also acknowledge that my art isn't perfect (and never will be even as a professional) but I practice, and I have noticed a bit of an improvement with each project I work on. You may be able to notice it too if you look at my older works. My main goal in my social media is to tell stories about my characters, the worlds they dwell in, and the adventures they have. However, I also write journal entries about things that happen in my personal life. So you may get to know a little about me as a person too. 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 questionable.
Anyways, I hope you like my art.
Btw If you ever feel like commenting, that's great! But please try not to be too disrespectful. Constructive criticism is fine, but I'd much rather not see this relatively friendly site become a cesspool of unnecessary negativity. Don't worry, no hard feelings :) Just want everyone to be nice. Kay? Thank you. :)
So if you have read my previous journal entries before, I'm gonna say it now. I've made it. I have officially moved to Sydney, Australia.
But for those who have only just started reading, let me explain.
I am American, and prior to moving I had lived in the Pacific Northwest of the US. In fact it had been my home for the past 11 years of my life. It's a big change for me. In fact I was nervous during the long flights across the Pacific ocean, and pretty stressed out on the night I had moved into the new house. But now that it's daytime I have actually calmed down about it. I just need time to get used to this.
But now that I am currently living in New South Wales, I have to say there are already some blatantly obvious differences. For one thing, the nature here is different. Even the birds here sound rather alien to me. Not to mention the trees look very tropical compared to what I'm used to. House design is also different. In fact our new house is a bit smaller than our old one and the light switches, sinks, and bathrooms are designed differently. But we do have a swimming pool now, so that's nice.
Another thing to get used to is the time difference. As I'm typing this, it is summer in the US, but winter here in Australia. Not to mention it is evening/night in America but also morning here. So if you notice that I'm posting things at odd times, you may understand why.
So how do I feel about this? Well at the moment I have rather mixed feelings about the move. I know I'm eventually going to get used to living here, but I also know that I'm going to miss my time back at my old home. I had essentially grown up there, and now I just left behind years of childhood for another country. Not to mention I may have to get used to a different lifestyle here as well. I'm not normally used to change, so for me this is a little challenging.
I feel like that's all I have to say for now. If there's anything else going on, I'll update for you guys. Thank you for reading this entry.
