Why did you change your username?
I never really liked "boribaby"... I first started using it in 2003, and it sorta stuck with me since then, unfortunately. It was always hard to explain what it meant, and I only used it because all the other usernames I wanted had already been taken. To me, it always made me sound like a 13 year old anime artist!

Cool comic! When's the next page out?
Sadly, "Revelations" has come to end, and there will be no more updates. ;__;

Can I use your art on my blog?
Nie. Nein. Non. Nee. NO!

Can I draw your characters?
Of course -- who doesn't love getting giftart?! Just please don't claim them as your own, and be sure to link me the finished piece so I can thank/glomp you!

Can you teach me how to colour?
I have both a digital and traditional colouring tutorial in my gallery, so please follow this link:…

What do you use to draw with?
I sketch with just a mechanical pencil on good old paper. I use a Wacom Intuos3 tablet and Photoshop CS2 for ALL of my digital lineart and colouring.

What happened to your lineart?
Due to the fact that my lines have been overused on certain websites outside of dA, I have deleted them and probably won't be making them again.

Seems like I'll always be associated with that username :giggle:

So first off, thank you all for the lovely welcome back! (I've already fallen behind with responding to comments. :XD:) It actually feels pretty nice to be here again, though I will say straight up that I'm back part-time and can't dedicate as much time to being here as I used to. But since many of you have asked, I'll give you a little life update... there's a cookie at the end for anyone who gets that far! :cookie:

Currently I am living on my own in a lovely little house by the sea in my hometown. I moved out of my parents' a couple of years ago and this is actually my third property, but I absolutely adore it here! It really feels like home and I feel like I can settle down and start drawing again (hence my presence here on dA). I have a wonderful boyfriend in my life too, and without saying too much, I am a very happy girl these days. :heart: Job-wise, I'm still working as a pharmacy dispenser but I'm not loving it as much as I used to and I think a career-change is on the horizon. I have pets as well; two adorable little zebra finches called Link and Squidge. (If you follow me on FB you'll know I had a girl finch, Zelda, but she died so now I just have boys). I got myself into the best shape of my life and I'm loving my fitness and feeling good! So right now, all is well in my life. :aww:

But sadly, it hasn't been an easy journey for me and the road to happiness has been a long one! I've had my heart broken, I've suffered mentally and physically, I've done things I'm not proud of and am not prepared to talk about, but I'm here and I'm alive and that's all that matters. It's hard for me knowing that I can't change the past, but I firmly believe that my hard times have led my to where I am now, and I wouldn't change any of it. :heart:

And to answer the question you've all been asking, am I drawing again? The answer is... YES. I'm not drawing as much as I used to, but I am drawing! Expect to see artwork now and again in your inboxes (but I won't be updating the comic as I simply don't have the time or interest for that anymore. Sorry Revelations fans!)

Well, if you read all that and survived, go ahead and have that cookie. :cookie: I hope you all stay healthy and happy, and thanks for having me back!! :hug:

Has it REALLY been over two years since I last updated my page? :wow: I'm seriously shocked at how quickly time flies by. How is everyone? Who's still here? So much has happened since last time I upaded that I don't even know where to begin! Comment below and I'll see what kind of response I get and I'll write a new journal if there is enough interest.

And if nobody reads this, then oh well... :bounce:

Do you do commissions?
My commissions open and close very quickly, so it's usually a no. I also don't have a waiting list anymore, but I will update my journal and status as soon as I re-open.

Can we trade?
My trades are ONLY open once a year with very limited slots, so please don't ask. I have a special way of doing trades, and it's not based on first come, first serve. I will announce when I'm open for trades in a journal, so keep an eye out!

Do you do requests?
I'm afraid my busy schedule does not allow me to take ANY requests, so please don't ask.

Aw you wonderful person! Ive just read your journal and my goodness you deserve all the happiness in the world! Its so amazing just to have you back on DA its such a blessing to read from you again~ :heart:
I remember when I first started drawing horses you were the first horse artist I looked at and replied to my comment, I was so happy and excited and oh my you have just inspired me from then til now, you are my biggest inspiration for horses always, You are somone who I look up to greatly in art, its no pressure at all, I wouldnt be the horse artist I am today without you, I have grown so much in my digital style so greatly and the practice payed off and I just love drawing horses in digital now (because there may have been a faze where I kind of just gave up because I was trying to get used to the tablet and techniques XD) But I really love my style now and of course Id love to keep trying to make it better all the time~ There are some things Im not quite satified in my horses, I just need to learn how to make better lineart and all the layters to more blending and realistic strokes in my 'cartoony' horse style~

I never forget and incredible artist~
So welcome back! :heart:

Hi! I really love your horse and pegasus and unicorn drawings, so you'll maybe like my story about my pegasus OC, Skyler. If you don't want to look, it's ok, but I'll be happy if you do.

Have a nice day!
