About the Llamas

There is no need to thank me for the llamas. :)
I usually give llamas to people who fav, comment or watch my works or to people who I think that are amazing and deserve it.
So... giving a llama is my way of thanking people for being so awesome to me, because I really don't have time to thank to each of them. :/

:glomp: :love:

My works...

Copyright Statement 3 by Sophibelle

Well... I just saw this journal and I couldn't resist on doing a journal of my own, since I think this is a wonderful way to get nostalgic :rofl:

Sooo... let's start, shall we?! :meow:

Hmmm... I'm a deviant since Jun 25, 2011. I was 20 years old when I joined this comunity and I only joined because :iconailda: conviced me to. :meow:
At that time I was trying to do the "30 Day Drawing Challenge". I must say I managed to do it till day 7 or so! xD :rofl:

My first deviation

Myself by TheJoanaPADJ

On that time, I discovered some amazing artists that inspired me a lot, like :iconstressedjenny: and :iconloonaki: and also founded some of my closest friendships here (you know who you are guys! :stare:)
But since this is such a big@$$ comunity, of course that the amount of artists I worship started to rise, so as my frustration. xD but that is something inherent to every artist. We are never OK with what we do, we always want more and more. :rofl: and I worked a lot on that year to improve my drawing skills and find my own style.

Influence Map Meme by TheJoanaPADJ

By the end of 2011 I recieved my first Premium Membership, given to me by the lovely :iconvanlau:
And related to my art, this was what I had. :la: Not a LOT of improvement... but... it was there, I could see it and it made me happy to see that my hard work was compensating. I have to say here that Ailda was an enourmous help, always giving me a lot of motivation and critiques. So... I'm the artist I am today mostly because of her. ^^

Art Summary Meme - 2011 by TheJoanaPADJ

2012 was a big year! I drew A LOT! So far, this was my most productive year and also the one were I saw the biggest jump on my style and drawing skills. I studied a lot of resources, drew copies, tried new techniques, different approaches, I saw at least 2 of my works on the frontpage and... I recieved a Daily Deviation.

:heart: My First Daily Deviation :heart:

Sometimes people are beautiful... by TheJoanaPADJ

It was such an honour, and believe me, it gave me a LOT of motivation to become better! So... I have to thank to the amazing :iconminato-kushina: for suggesting it and to :iconastralseed: for featuring it. Thank you! This was really important to me! :iconsweethugplz:

In this Summer I also started developing a project with Ailda. It was a story named Cracked Gear and I dedicated a lot of my time to it (I still do, LOL I really love the characters we created and I draw them whenever I can! ^^).

By the end of 2012... I looked back and evaluated my progress... what I saw was.. improvement again. But this time... A LOT of it, and that's because I drew almost everyday of the year. I never stoped! ^^

2012's Art Summary 8D by TheJoanaPADJ

I also started doing my "Watcher's Features". And sometimes I take longer to do one, but... I don't really want to stop it! :meow: It makes me happy to see my watchers happy by this little surprise, because.... it feels good to be featured and it's my way to thank them for being so awesome! :love: :icobrohugplz:
My dear friend :iconcoffeeletters: also joined DeviantArt in this year!!! :love: <3

Then... 2013 came with all it's mighty (or not) lol xD I didn't draw so much as in 2012, but I did the best I could. :meow: 
I got more exposure, more feedback and in May 2013 I reached the 1000 followers. :iconsnugglyplz:  I never thought I would reach it! And now I'm almost reaching the 2000! You are soooo many!!! Thank you! <3

I started working more with photoshop, trying new stuff, and I bought my tablet! (but only started using it more regularly... like... this Summer :iconfacewallplz: LOL)
I think I started seeing my ownstyle on this year. Something that people would look and say "This was done by Joana". And the hair started to be my trade mark LOL x3

2013's Art Summary by TheJoanaPADJ

My first tutorial was made in this year, and I got a LOT of feedback. I was very happy that it could be helpfull to this comunity somehow! :meow: 
And 3 of my Daily Devations Suggestions where accepted! :la:

Mushrooms by MaryIL  The legend of giants by NataliaRak
Gynandromorph by e11e-k

I also recieved a 1 year Premium Membership given to me by the ever so lovely :iconphotofairy: (thank you again hun! <3)

Now... in 2014... I've been a bit absent, since I've been having a massive art block... but hopefully I'm starting to be able to draw again! :meow:

I have to say that the feedback I recieve on my works, given by you guys, is my main fuel. Seeing all of you being nice and actually liking my works, giving me some "little" big surprises and gifts... it's something that simply puts a smile on my face and makes my day brighter! You are all so amazing!
I am... without any doubt, very honored to be part of this comunity and to had the chance to meet you all! :iconbrohugplz:

21.1 -Hoje ouvi dizerHoje ouvi dizer que amanhã o mundo podia acabar
Sem que se desse por ela, sem que ninguém soubesse
Sem que a vida me parasse sem o dia avisar
Sem que ninguém secretamente se opusesse
Ouvi dizer que amanhã o mundo podia acabar
E nada fiz para o parar, talvez por me faltar a vontade
Talvez porque por momentos ninguém conseguia sonhar
Talvez por poder acabar e nem sequer deixar saudade  
Dizer que amanhã o mundo podia acabar
Seria loucura e ninguém ia acreditar em mim
Se eu dissesse que o amor poderia travar
Este silêncio que se vive num frenesim
Que amanhã o mundo podia acabar
E não haveria tempo para arrependimentos
Quantos beijos, palavras e mortes íamos presenciar
Se, de repente, se libertassem as rédeas dos sentimentos
Amanhã o mundo podia acabar
E será que teria algo para me arrepender
Ou podia sentar-me e ver o mundo desmaiar
Sabendo que não havia nada que quisesse fazer
O mundo podia acabar
Ou tal

I'm sorry for the big journal, lol! xDD

Hi there! :iconsweethugplz:

I'm Joana!
I'm a traditional artist (or trying to be! xD) and I'm self-taught. On my "free-time" (let's say... my classes!) I love to draw.

Feel free to speak with me! I love to meet new people! If you want to ask me something, hey, just leave me a note or a comment, and I'll answer you back! :hug:

Also, I'm sorry but I can't thank to each of you for the favs! T.T I really wanted, and I tried that at first, but I seriously don't have time. So, for all the people who fav my work, I'll just leave here a big THANK YOU! Seriously guys, you're so awesome!
