International Women’s Day y’all!

I won’t even lie, I’ve been waiting a whole year to post this…

DISNEY WORLD!! 3/2-8/2014

girlwiththerobottattoo:

I leave for Disney with my bf and his sister-in-law. ( setsuna22 !!! ) my good friend.. and I’m so stoked! Queing up my Tumblr so things will be posted while I’m gone!

This will be my 40th… Or in my 40s going and bf has been once and friend never before! What an amazing trip!

I’m leaving for Disney World tomorrow! :)

Alrighty! I hope you’ll appreciate that this is somewhat nerve wracking for me! hahahaha. 

These are some photos from my boudoir photo shoot I did recently. I did it for two reasons: one being that my husband and I have been together for 10 years this year and I thought this would be a nice gift. Two, I have a lot of body issues that I am trying to deal with and I felt this would be a good way to help with them. And partially thirdly, since I am trying to get pregnant, my body will go downhill for a little while and the things I hate in my body will probably only get worse.

I have been 95 lbs most of my life (I am only 5 feet tall) but after birth control and thyroid issues I have gained lots of weight over the past 6-7 years. I am now 165 lbs. It’s really hard for me to look at myself in the mirror too closely and be okay with what I see. Mostly because it is not what I am used to seeing. I went a good 20 something years being a size zero, so it’s really hard to accept a size 14.

And it’s not that I hate everything. For example, I can look at my waist and see that it’s tiny compared to the rest of my body and I like it. I very much have an hourglass figure. In general, I still have tiny ankles and calves. And of course, I don’t feel I am ugly, looks-wise. But then there are things like my butt, thighs and stomach, where I carry almost all of my weight. Despite how things have been touched up in these photos, I do have a large amount of stretch marks and it looks like I am smuggling 20 lbs of cottage cheese in my lower body. And even though the touch-ups are an illusion, hiding that fact, it’s still really comforting to see that underneath the imperfections, the infrastructure of my thighs and butt are actually really nice. Even if it doesn’t fit into those size zero jeans anymore. 

And I feel that part of learning to accept my body is to put it out there. I can’t hide it on a daily basis and expect to magically wake up one day and be okay with it. It’s really something that you have to work on and take risks with. So, this is my first step in self-acceptance.

Bye-bye magenta mane! Hello lavender locks! 

I got my hair recolored yesterday and decided I wanted to take the magenta out of my hair and lighten the purple that was underneath. I asked my stylist, Christina for a pinky, lilac, lavender and this is what she did for me. It’s always tricky re-coloring natural hair because you don’t know how it’s going to react to the dye. I love how this turned out! I took a few photos before leaving the house today in a rush. I just got down to Burbank a few hours ago and I am super tired and I’m going to sleep.  I’ll be here exhibiting at the CTN Animation Expo this weekend. Night night

holy shit/wow

All my felt fruit together. :) The recipient is 2 years old and apparently she loved it! Apparently she has a shopping cart toy so she’s really excited about having stuff to put in it.

I did a Boudoir photo shoot today! Here is hair and makeup from it, before I wash it all off! (Hubby doesn&#8217;t know I did it yet, so I can&#8217;t tip him off lol) I might or might not show photos from the shoot later on :P Depends how they come out/how daring I am feeling that day hahaha.

Hi Setsu, how are you? I hope you're doing great! I'm following your work since 2009 or so, I would like to ask you how do you do your lineart. It's super clean, I always though you were using the pen tool but I think you have a tablet now, how do you do the lines so sharp? Do you use a special brush setting? that's all, Thank you!! Have a great day!

Hiiiiiii! 

I USED to use the line tool a lot back in the day. Now a days, I don’t do anything special honestly! I actually think my lines are super wiggly lots of the time. ;;;;;; I use your typical round brush as well. I do work pretty darn big though and I think it’s more of an illusion more than anything hahaha. Because I typically present my files online at a much smaller size than working size. It’s one giant, grand illusion; I assure you.
