Hi :D My artist name is Suminoe and please call me "Sumi." I am 16 years old and I live in the Philippines. My preferred style of drawing is in anime style. If I would describe my appearance, I'm considered tall here standing at '5"4, I have long black hair that is dyed dark red, I have 6 ear piercings and I wear braces. I love watching anime and cartoons, educating myself with the world's mysteries and reading about anything interesting in general, drawing, singing, dancing, reading and writing poetry and stories, eating sweets, watching funny videos, listening to J-POP and pop music, spending time with my friends and family, exercising, Net surfing, playing video games and playing with my pets. I am very sensitive to heat and cold. I hate frogs and Math ~_~ I am a sensitive, nice, gentle, sweet, stubborn, artistic, fun and passionate person. I am very shy and quiet, but I'm sweet and fun around people I get along with. What interests me right now are art, horror, fashion, make up, mysteries and anime. I love making friends online too so please say hi or drop me a note :) Well I guess that's about it.. Please watch me and continue seeing my progress :D

What being an artist means to me

Tue Mar 10, 2015, 9:01 AM
Hey everyone, long time no update.. I'm so sorry since school has been very tedious and I am fully overwhelmed with how my first year of college life is picking up. I am guilty of being extremely busy during my free time since I have not been drawing (digitally) seriously. Come 3 more years and I am considering going to med school. It blows me however; I've grown up molded as an artist-- one who can use pictures and words to convey and express. But what am I doing? I've been thrown into the world of cold, hard facts which are close to interpretation and devoid of creativity; I feel like I'm trapped. I feel like it was a mistake I became a Bachelor of Science student. I am not juggling my tasks in school very well because of this crisis; I feel like I should be expressing and creating like the art and writing students of my university. I feel like I should have been one of them.
BS Psychology was a course chosen by my father in hopes of me graduating with a degree, getting a title and access to an array of jobs. I blindly complied since I felt like the study of human behavior seems interesting and promising enough. Don't get me wrong; I love the study of psychology. It's just that the subjects I am forced to take do not play any importance in my interest and relevance in the work field of a psych grad. Too much science and all the facts made me think more logical than the creative self I love and know. Because of this, my art block has been walling me up from what I love doing-- that is to draw.
Flyingcatsandglitter has been known as a fan artist; she is best known as a MLP gijinka artist. I love drawing these. I love making fan art. But one day, I looked at my portfolio. Lovely, cute and colorful works that felt-- empty, and alien to me. What was I doing, I thought. I realized that I'm drawing for the sake of recognition and popularity. I let my fans decide what I do and draw (not that anything is wrong with that), disregarding my feelings for art all these time. I enjoy creating these pieces, it's just that they lack something-- and that something is the essence and embodiment of my art-- my feelings.
I can only draw, I have no right to call myself an artist.
I accept that fact, that's why I am willing to change that now. I want to be happy, content and inspired with the things I am creating-- I want my new pieces to be emotional and brimming with life. I will not stop creating fan art though, but this time I want to focus my time and creativity in creating art for myself. Art that embodies my soul and what I am feeling as of the moment. I want to be unique and empowering; I want to show that in my art. By the end of February up to present, I am feeling the rush of creativity welling up inside of me; I spend days just drawing, coloring freely, some works accompanied by little passages and lengthy poems. Don't think; just feel. This has been my new motto in approaching art, and I couldn't be happier. I've returned to the use of traditional art tools-- watercolors and markers. So far, I've been drawing a lot of things outside my comfort zone and I actually see how much improvement there's been - still life, realistic, architecture and landscapes. I am happy right now; my art is finally speaking and telling a story. I couldn't wait to share them with you guys, who has long supported me and believed how much potential I have. I will never forget the love I am constantly receiving from the people who appreciate my art.

I am very inspired, my art embodies who I truly am. Finally, after 17 years, I have found my purpose in creating.
I think I am finally living up to my title as an "artist."
