A Short Comic: The Great Race pg 9 by Candle-stic
A Short Comic: The Great Race pg 9
Well long time no see, life's been pretty hectic for me recently. But the good news is, it has settled down now for a little while so I should be able to get back on track with this. Which I'm pretty excited for since I am now officially over half way. I really didn't think it would take me a year and a half to get the this point. Oh well :), it was definitely a huge learning experience. Hope you enjoy.

A mother's gift by Candle-stic
A mother's gift
I made this for the front of my mum's card for mother's day. Since my brother and I couldn't get home till then it also doubled as her birthday card.
I'm a little late in posting it but I got the image and the card finished in time for mother's day so I can't really complain.
To all the mothers out there: you are amazing people and greatly appreciated, I hope you got spoiled on your special day.

Ok so this one I actually was tagged by :hlwar:

Rules:
1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves.
3. Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 you tag. 
4. Choose 10 people and put their icon in your journal. 
5. No tag-backs.

So facts about me:
1. I'm studying mechanical engineering at university 
2. I'm a Christian
3. I love cartoons and superheroes
4. I have an incredibly vivid imagination which added to my intellectual mindset tends to lead to some very detailed results.
5. I'm a perfectionist and a completer-finisher which together have caused me some problems getting things done on time.
6. I tend to get stressed a lot =P
7. I love making people laugh and smile
8. I'm a whiz at maths
9. I feel vulnerable presenting things I've created to people because of how much I put into them
10. I love music whether it's listening, singing or dancing to it. If I don't want to do one of these things then something's usually wrong.

Answers:
1. Which of your deviations is the memorable/meaningful and why?
Rose by Candle-sticThis piece still is one of my best. It's memorable because this was the first realistic piece I attempted in colour and it was with this success that I officially moved onto drawing with colour pencils. That's also the reason it's my icon pic.
2. In your opinion, which is more important: story or characters?
Both are important. But to me, it's the characters that make it :).
3. If you could change one thing about your style(art, writing, whatever) what would it be and why?
Probably my writing style. It takes me so long to write anything and it tends to come off quite youngish. It's something I really have to work hard at.
4. What is the craziest thing you've ever done?
Well, I'm not really the sort of person who does crazy stupid stuff. Probably the time my friends and I dressed up and acted out parts of Merlin and medieval times at the Castle near where I live. That was pretty funny and crazy.
5. What themes do you like to explore in your art?
I don't know if I have anything in particular. I just draw when I feel like it and I like experimenting. 
6. When was the last time you tried something outside your comfort zone, and what were the results?
My boyfriend is always trying to get me to push the edges of my comfort zone when it comes to socializing and/or officially talking to people (E.g. Phone interviews, applying for jobs, etc.). Usually they don't end as bad as I was making them out to be.
7. Name something you dislike about DeviantArt.
Trying to link stuff is really cumbersome. 
8. What kind of creative patterns, routines or rituals do you have?
Um well, I write on the bus to and from uni. I tend to draw in lectures. I sing and dance while doing housework and cooking. And I blow bubbles while washing my hands =P.
9. What hobby would you like to pursue one day?
I really want to learn archery one day.
10. What makes a "hero" in your opinion?
Someone who puts the needs of others before his/her own. Someone who wants to make a difference in the world, whether that's a big thing or a small thing. A lot of the time we tend to focus in the big heroes: superman, famous people. But sometimes the smallest action could change the world for someone, then you become their hero. After all, the biggest heroes in our lives when we're young are our parents. 

Questions:
1. If you could have any super power what would it be?
2. What's your favourite movie?
3. Your all time favourite character (from book, tv series, movie, etc.)?
4. One of your funniest memories?
5. If you found a genie or a shooting star or something else that could grant wishes would you still use them if you knew they would come at an equally high price?
6. If you could have any pet (possible or impossible/ fantasy or real) what would it be and what would you call it?
7. What's your favourite game and why?
8. Do you have any siblings?
9. What's your most valuable possession?
10. One thing you're proud about your work (drawing, writing, etc.)

I'm not really all that big on tagging people so do it if you want to :)
I (sorta) got tagged by :hlwar: for this. And I finally have time to do it. So here we go:

1. What are you wearing?
Long-sleeved purple top, black mini skirt, white leggings and the scarf my brother got me ages ago. (Honestly, I'm a little more dressed up then I normally am but that's because all my clothes are in the wash).

2. Ever been in love?
Yes :). I have had a boyfriend for over 3 years now and I don't think I have the words to describe the way he makes me feel. I've felt the happiest and the saddest around him. He knows almost everything about me and I am comfortable being myself and telling him my deepest secrets. He's my best friend. And I honestly can see myself being with him for the rest of my life. If that's not love, I don't know what is.

3. Ever had a terrible breakup?
No. First boyfriend. Though something tells me if we did break up it'd be pretty horrible.

4. How tall are you?
164cm ;P (All you Americans can work out how tall that is)

5. How much do you weigh?
49.5kg as of 3 weeks ago (the first time in about a year I've had something to weigh myself with)

6. Any tattoos?
No. And not planning on it.

7. Any piercings?
Just my ears which I've had forever.

8. OTP?
I don't really have one, though if I had to choose probably Tristana&Rumble from League of Legends. Honestly, I'm pretty flexible with pairings. The only thing I really hate is when people break up cannon pairings to put them with someone else.

9. Favourite show?
Changes with time. Atm it'd be a toss up between Young Justice, TMNT and the Flash.

10. Favourite bands (Artists)?
Again something that changes. Atm, I'm really into Lindsey Stirling, Halestorm, Evanescence and Linkin Park. But my music tastes are really varied and I usually enjoy individual songs more than bands or artists.

11. Something you miss?
Being healthy. I've been injured/sick recently and I'm not a very patient healer.

12. Favourite song?
I'm in love with the instrumental piece "Icarus" by Ivan Torrent at the moment.

13. How old are you?
Old enough to legally drink in every country in the world ;).

14. Zodiac sign?
Pisces.

15. Quality you look for in a partner?
Genuine. Smart. Kind. Responsible. Sturdy. Sense of Humour. Loves me for me. Basically everything I love about my boyfriend :).

16. Favourite Quote?
Ooh, I know a lot of quotes. Can't think of which would be my favourite. I think I'll narrow it down to four (sorry I don't know who they're by:
The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90 percent probability you'll get it wrong.
Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
Heroes come and go, but the stories never change, the battle between good and evil will rage on for millenniums to come, yet throughout all time there is one thing that has never changed, evil never dies, and heroes never surrender!
Girls
are like
apples on trees.
The best ones are
at the top of the tree. The
boys don’t want to reach
for the good ones because they
are afraid of falling and getting hurt.
Instead, they just get the rotten apples
from the ground that aren't as good,
but easy. So the apples at the top think
something is wrong with them, when in
reality, they're amazing. They just
have to wait for the right boy to
come along, the one who's
brave enough to
climb all
the way
to the top
of the tree.

17. Favourite Actor?
Haha. I really don't keep track of those sorts of things :P

18. Favourite colour?
Blue then purple. Though honestly I love all colours. Give me a bright, rich colour and I'll usually like it :).

19. Loud music or soft?
Depends on my mood.

20. Where do you go when you're sad?
Usually I go to be by myself to cry and calm down. Then I like to talk to either my family or my boyfriend to sort out the problem.

21. How long does it take you to shower?
About 10-15min unless I'm washing my hair or in a hurry.

22. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Anywhere between 15min to 2hours :P. Depending on the time and the rushiness.

23. Ever been in a physical fight?
Define fight.

24. Turn on?
Nice abs and an awesome personality

25. Turn off?
Bad breath or a snobbish attitude.

26. The reason I joined DeviantArt?
I think so I could put all my drawings somewhere in case anything happened to them.

27. Fears?
The dark. Losing those I care about. Ending up alone. Being unloved.

28. Last thing that made you cry?
That's personal

29. Last time you said you loved someone?
This morning.

30. Meaning behind your DeviantArt name?
Candle-stic. Well, it's based off of my fanfiction name Candlestic, which is one of the creatures I created for the novel I've been writing. They're about 1m tall with long and spindly limbs, big eyes and pale skin. Their hair sort of floats upwards in various shades of reds to yellows making them look like candles. They're not very good liars but they tend to know a lot that's going on because they can talk to the trees (who are actually pretty big gossipers).

31. Last book you read?
Polgara the Sorceress by David and Leigh Eddings. Good book, part of the Belgariad and Mallorean series. I'd recommend them.

32. The book you're currently reading?
Kind of don't have time to read a book atm.

33. Last show you watched?
Currently watching an Anime with my friends (which I can't remember the name of) and the Flash with my boyfriend. I can't remember what was before that.

34. Last person you talked to?
My house-mates

35. The relationship between you and the person you last texted?
Let's think... my boyfriend =P

36. Favourite food?
Probably popcorn. Especially movie popcorn :D.

37. Place you want to visit?
Argh, so many. I think next on my list is Rio de janeiro and Machu Picchu. Probably do them together.

38. Last place you were?
University

39. Do you have a crush?
... I think question 2 answers that question.

40. Last time you kissed someone?
Yesterday

41. Last time you were insulted?
This week. I've had a lot of jokes about my injury, though none of them have been serious.

42. Favourite flavour of sweet?
I love sour lollies :D

43. What instruments do you play?
I sing. And I taught myself a little bit of piano to help practice but nothing special. I'm a little too uncoordinated to play much =P.

44. Favourite piece of jewelry?
My cross necklace or my charm bracelet. I enjoy wearing jewelry but it's usually not very practical at uni so they're only for special occasions.

45. Last sport you played?
Probably soccer with friends in the backyard. Though it's been ages.

46. Last song you sang?
Haha, I sing too much to keep track of that.

47. Favourite chat up line?
How much do 100 penguins weigh? Enough to break the ice.

48. Have you ever used it?
Lol. No. I'm not that sort of person.

49. Last time you hung out with anyone?
Last night. My brother had friends over and we all played Super-Smash bros.

50. Favourite Mythological creature?
Dragon. Hands down. I love them so much. But overall, I just enjoy mythical creatures in general. 

Man this is long.

Thanks for the birthday wish :) Yes I had a great time even if the weather here atm is cyclonic. My family and boyfriend spoiled me silly and I am so glad to have been able to spend the time with them. No problem :) you're a great writer and I'm glad to have made a difference in supporting you. Great to hear from you.

Aww, you are absolutely welcome, m'dear!! :tighthug: I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful birthday, and yay for being spoiled!! XD Did you make off like a bandit and eat way too much cake?! But oh my, cyclonic weather? (O_o) That's pretty intense; how bad did Mother Nature get? I admit, I'm a big fan of storms, even though their unpredictability can be a tad frightening.

Thank you for your wonderful review again, by the way! You're just the best and I greatly appreciate it!! :heart:

Nah, don't have that much of a sweet tooth. My parents got me an awesome cake though :D.

Well Australia was hit by two cyclones that day =P. It didn't actually hit us specifically though since we're too far south. But it did mean there was lots of rain around then and some of the roads flooded making it hard to get places. It made for an interesting yet still awesome day :).

No problem :D I was excited to see you'd posted. I hope you are doing well and am looking forward to whenever you post again Hug

Hi Steph, thanks for adding me to your watch list! :D Did you like any of the things i've made? You never know, you might get a nice little package one day if you really like something.... :p Loved your stuff too, now I just have to find time to read your fan fics as well. Thanks, from Amy :)

Hey Amy, it's nice to hear from you :). Been a while. Yes, your stuff is beautiful. I love all the intricate details in your jewelry and your teddies are cute :). Do you make them all from scratch? Haha thanks :) glad that you like them and don't feel too pressured to read them, I'm just happy that you like my stuff.

Pretty much everything is made from scratch (except clasps really). For my jewellery even some of my jump rings are made by hand. And all the teddies are made from scratch, and hand sewn (fur is not friendly with my sewing machine :p ). But by hand sewing them i can get the pieces to fit better and do finer details. Although noses are horrible. Whose idea was it that teddies and soft toys needed noses??!?

Oh hey! Candlestic, it's nice to find you here! This is Vitani from FanFiction.net. I was at your profile and clicked the link to view your OC artwork for Mariette, who is super-cute, by the way. :heart: 

Anyway, I spend more time on deviantART so I figured I'd stop by and say hello. I hope you're doing well, and thank you for everything! Happy Holidays!

Hey Vitani, Hi!
Thank you. I'm glad you like her. Yes, I usually do too. Even though I write my passion is and always will be in drawing.
Happy New Year!
