“Whenever she turned her steep focus to me, I felt the warmth that flowers must feel when they bloom through the snow, under the first concentrated rays of the sun.”

It's finally done! Well, sort off. I have a feeling that I'm going to be coming back to this one quite a bit to add touchups and whatnot. There's still a lot of stuff that's not perfect and a lot of cleaning up that needs to be done, but I'm happy with it for now. I just hope my secret santee likes it!J

This drawing is a representation of my friend's character from Final Fantasy XIV for the secret santa gift exchange my free company (guild) is holding. Her name is Espere Desavoir, which is what is written in the Eorzean script at the bottom. This font is used for any writing in the game such as sign posts or map text.

Anyways, I hope you guys like it! Feel free to leave any feedback/tips, since this is my first time coloring anything with photoshop.

Materials Used
:bulletblue: Mechanical Pencil
:bulletyellow: Canson™ Calligraphy paper
:bulletblue: 0.05, 0.005 and wedge tip Prismacolor Premier™ pens
:bulletyellow: Photoshop™ CS5 (coloring)
Espere Desavoir by Slightly-Spartan
Espere Desavoir
So my Free Company in Final Fantasy XIV is doing secret santa for Christmas. Gifts are supposed to be either handmade or under $20, so I decided I would get back in the art game and draw my person her character. This is just the base line art with a bit of shading. I'm going to try to color it, but I haven't a clue how to begin. Still haven't learned how to use photoshop XD any suggestions? 

Anywho, her name is Espere. Wrote her name in the Eorzean alphabet at the bottom. But shhh. Don't say anything if you hit that one in a million chance and happen to play the game XD Signed it with my IGN, Visenya Elery.
Soooooo I'm an idiot.

The other day I was trying to clean up my accounts. I have two deviantART accounts and one I don't use very much, so I decided to deactivate it. Silly me, I decided to do it from my phone, and if anyone knows anything about the mobile site for this, it kind of sucks. I sent the deactivation e-mail from one of my accounts and the link was broken, so I went back and sent another. Little did I know, it had sent it from my main account, this one. I went to send a link to a friend so he could see some of my drawings, and I saw in big, bold "this account has been deactivated". My heart sunk. A lot of the art I have posted on here (good and bad) I don't have anymore. Either lost in the shuffle or given away as gifts. Full-on panic mode.

Luckily, the deviantART team has a pretty nifty feature where if you deactivate your account you have 30 days to recover it. Phew. That was close. Anyhow, I have some new art I'm going to be uploading tomorrow (if any of my watchers are still alive out there). I hope you guys will check it out!

Harmful bureaucracy. Government censorship. Uninformed voters.
