Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art

Hi there, I'm Cecily! You may have known me as Kira or Dani or some other internet pseudonym, so you can really call me whatever you like. I'm a hobby artist who can't really stop drawing Sonic styled OCs. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I don't quite pop out art the way I used to between school and motivation. Please bear with me.

Feel free to drop a line and chat some time, I'd like to get to know more people! :heart:

tumblr (I just reblog stuff here, become mutuals today and I'll send you really bad textposts that remind me of you!(after i get to know u more as a person))
YouTube (It's fairly inactive)

GIFTS = Friends/Mutuals Only
Watch for Watch = Sorry, I don't believe in that
Llama for Llama = ALWAYS :)
This title is with reference to the weather here, because it hates everyone. Earlier this week the temp was well into the 80°F temp range Just this past weekend it was somewhere around 46°F (8°C) and today it's like 76°F (24°C), which is normally really pleasant, but there's this thing called direct sunlight that is currently roasting all of us so the 76° feels more like the upper 80s... Don't worry, it only gets hotter from here on out |D.

So you might be wondering why I've decided to update so early, and my answer is: just because. I promise I'll try to keep it short. There's not a whole lot for me to say, and if I waited any later in the month y'all might just get 823743909 pages worth of stuff, and that's the last thing y'all want. If anything important comes up, I'll make a status update.

Personal Updates
:bulletred: Final exams start next week and I've got six of them... I'm hoping I can squeeze out of my chem exam, so I'll only have five instead.
:bulletred: After final exams comes move-out, and that'll be equally as riveting. I won't be home until sometime after May 20th (my older sister's graduation! Hooray!! :airborne:)
:bulletred: I often wonder what it would be like to be a hermit instead of a medical professional, but then I realized I wouldn't have internet access... So I guess I'm still staying within a plausible career field.
:bulletred: It seems like I'll be doing research in the fall, and I'm really excited for it. I've kind of felt lost with regards to my future, and I hope this experience will broaden my horizons a little bit.

Project Updates
They're moving about as quickly as they can right now. It's still A LOT of jumbled plot points across a multitude of stories, so I need to sit down and consolidate things to a singular focus so I don't overwhelm myself (again).
:bulletblack: The TSG Cover is still being a complete and utter jerk to me, but I have figured out a main shading colour I'll be using across the board to make it a bit easier on myself. Still debating on the "style" of shading, but at least I'm one step closer. The background which I have been playing with needs a couple of tweaks, but for the most part it's largely finished.
:bulletblack: The TSG manuscript is going through one last editing phase on a couple of scenes. I only want to put out the best quality of writing I can manage at this time! :D I'm still hoping for a release by the end of this month.
:bulletblack: I'm going to take a little bit of a break to work on other things this summer and do some anatomy studies and try out digital painting. I just really want to immerse myself in the field because digital painting looks so cool when it's done right. Got any characters you'd let me experiment with? I have very few consolidated human characters I can work with in regards to official design and colours. I also want to ignore my own characters for a little bit :XD: I'm still planning on releasing a "Meet the Artist".
:bulletblack: Of course I won't abandon my babies indefinitely, I'm going to try to work on The Centerpoint portraits and start releasing those in the fall. They'll also be the first round of official characters to get basic references done, because I'm making myself practice more with dynamic poses and effects so they might not all be depicted as clearly as normal portraits would.

Okay, that sums it up this time around. Peace my dudes. Menma Peace Icon

I'm so sorry. Stuff happened today and I don't feel fantastic, so I'm pushing the release date back. Monday though, I can confirm that TSG can be posted Monday the 29th.
If things go according to plan (aka I finish the cover) I'm hoping TSG will be uploaded this Thursday, May 25th! :dance:
FINALS HAVE FINISHED AND MOVE OUT IS DONE BLESS! :dance: I am now free to work on stuff and I'm hoping to crack down on the TSG cover and work on more fun pieces!
Progress will be delayed. Finals start Friday and it turns out I'll be busier than anticipated + I haven't been feeling great lately :/ Will work on things as I can, but school comes first. I have started the shading process for the TSG cover. Thanks for understanding :heart:
I don't have a PayPal myself but if you do I'd be wary!
//edited + info now!

Heads up to avoid paypal scam! Llama Emoji-07 (Hopeless or Scared) [V1] 

If you ever get an email like this:
Email by Hyanna-Natsu
Pay attention to email sender, and to another details:
- "" will appear as the sender's name, but the actual email address can be something odd and shady like ""
- PayPal would use your full name, and never address you as just "customer"
- Poor grammar or misspellings, and an informal tone in the message is also a strong giveaway.

Do NOT click in the button, if you click, will bring you to:
Page by Hyanna-Natsu
And obviously, do not put your information there Big Fool Emoji-07 (Cry) [V2] 
Because it is NOT PAYPAL SITE!
I googled the email the password thing came from:
GoogleIt by Hyanna-Natsu
Everytime you get a "password change" in your email, if wasn't you, do not click without checking where the email came from, it is important.
Or even if it is from original site (like deviantart), I have got a few "hacker" attempts to change my password and everything I had to do was to not click in the button, why? WELL. I wasn't the one that requested the password change <O>
Please use your brain ;w;

>> If you ever get an email like this PLEASE report it to PayPal!!
They ask that you forward it to so PayPal can track it.
Immediately after forwarding it you can delete the scam email.
For more information on how to deal with these emails you can look here:…

This doesn't necessarily just apply to PayPal! This can come from Amazon, eBay, online gaming services, banks, social media, anything.  Please always check the email source and address!

If you use Hotmail, some emails will have a green shield next to them.  This means that they're verified sources and are safe to open and follow links from.  PayPal is one of them, and should you receive an email from them without that green shield, it's a fake and you should report it as a phishing scam.  Not all emails are verified, but businesses like PayPal and iTunes are! If you have previous emails from them, check to see if they have the shield!

Be careful! Kao Emoji-43(Sad waving) [V3]
