Cappuccino Love - Gemi Gif Doll by Gemini-Mystica

Hi! I am Gemini, but please call me Gemi. I am a geeky chick who has an awesome career as a Database Developer. ^_^ I live happily with my husband and two cats, and draw and animate when I feel like it, or when I just have time. I am also writing a book, so hopefully that will be done in a year or so (It's already been over a year...eep!).

When I'm not at work or practicing my skills; I play Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Sonic games, Team Fortress 2, Terraria, read, write, draw on the computer, sketch on my sketchy pad, paint, hug my cats, spend time with my husband, watch anime, listen to Lady Gaga, play Mario games (even the old ones), play pokemon, and do other stuff.

It has been a long time since I had written a journal, so I suppose it would be good to tell you what I have been up to. ^_^

First of all, I had changed jobs! For the past two years, I have worked with the Kansas Department of Commerce (a state job) as a database administrator and gained both experience and greater knowledge within my career! I feel like I am finally a fully fledged database admin. ^_^ It was a fun job, and I was sad to leave it; but I really wanted to make more money. Employees who work for the state rarely get raises, and this was set by our state governor. So, employees who work for the state usually get raises by switching to different jobs in their department, or going to a different department all together. Now I work for the Judicial Department. I originally planned to start looking for higher paying positions for another six months to a year; but a former employee in my company had referred me, and I decided to apply and interview. I got hired within 1 day after the interview, which was absolutely startling! I gave three weeks notice to Commerce, not only to give good notice, but to also finish the projects I was working on. I left that place on super good terms, and was told that I just have to call if I ever want to come back. I love that place! :heart:

Judicial is interesting, and I am still learning their database and server environments. It's not as structured and documented as the environments were in Commerce, but I plan to completely learn all of it; and help the team with documentation. So yea, it's awesome! I am making quite a bit more money, and feel that I am rally growing in my career. 

Career comes first, and since I have been so job focused on finishing up the last job and starting the new one; I have been just coming home completely exhausted mentally and watching shows with Sean. Once Sean starts gaming, I would just go to bed, read, derp on the internet, or start looking over my notes. I just have not been feeling settled enough to get back into my hobbies; so that's why I have been so inactive. The bad news is that all of my inactivity with art lately has made me gradually less practiced; and I have almost been afraid to start it up again. lol It's stupid; I'm afraid of art! XD  I just have insecurities with it just like many artists; so I'm not unique by having those types of issues. ^_^ Heehee, I will draw again eventually though! 

Other than that, just been having fun with Sean. When I start drawing again, I want to do a bit of comics as to what my day to day life is like. When I talk with my coworkers about the silly things Sean and I do, the majority of them are rather surprised and I feel like we are outside of the norm for the most part. We are silly individuals who do cute things, so I think it's comic worthy! :3 Yay! I also want a kitten but our apartment only allows for two pets. Thought I would share that! :)

I have since watched: Archer, Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty season 2, Legend of Korra, Erased, Hero Academia, Re:Zero, Dimension W, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, Noragami, Flying Witch, The Amazing Wold of Gumball, South Park episode 1 to current, and much more! 

Stay awesome;

Fluffy Chaos by Gemini-Mystica
Fluffy Chaos
Chaos and disruption sometimes arrive as fluffy insanity.

I actually finished something!! XD Well, I got to admit, I will be trying to change my art style again. Dunno what will happen or how long it will take for me to really get back into drawing again; but I will be practicing lots of different things. Art needs to feel more fun to me, so I am going to take my husbands advice and really work on gaining extra skill before tackling my next set of sketches.

I sketched today and did not absolutely hate the outcome! Yay! I will probably finish it this weekend.

Goddess In The Court by Gemini-Mystica
Goddess In The Court
Gemini spent several years in the Royal Court within the capitol before being exiled from the Emerald Empire all together. Her pictures made her appear to be of nobility; however, she was not entirely happy living among the other gods who have adapted to court life.

The pose and background are inspired by paintings of nobles and generals from history. :)

Megu-nee from Gakkou Gurashi! (School-Live!) The first episode of this anime is super cute and very surprising!! :D Megu-nee is so sweet. :heart: 
Oh man, this characters story!!!!  Llama Emoji-08 (Crying) [V1]  I watched the anime; and am still keeping up with the manga.



Just wanted to do a very quick sketch and color. ^_^ My goal was to have some artistic expression without taking for forever. XD

Your time should belong to you. Spend it in a way that you approve of. :)

This Feels Correct by Gemini-Mystica
This Feels Correct
Yesterday was my loss; but today is my triumph!


Just as the title states, drawing this simply felt correct, the way it came out felt correct, and the colors felt correct!

I started sketching new stuff after my last art submission; and they all felt and came out totally wrong! My vision of Gemini's face and what I want from art in general was slipping, and I just felt odd about everything. For the last few weeks, I have been sketching wildly trying to figure out what I want Gemini to look like, how I want to draw eyes, and how I just want to drew bodies and figures. I had a common issue of questioning 'where am I' and 'who am I' artistically. I have been drawing allot of sketches lately because I just want to figure that out; or at least come closer to what it's all about for me. I was becoming unhappy with the way I drew colors, and sort of went back to the shading type I had done years ago. ^_^ I like it! 

I will probably share my sketches from the past few weeks. I also have a drawing that I started after my last submission that I had halted entirely, but will re-do the coloring and submit it this week.

That Time by Gemini-Mystica
That Time
...that I was just able to be myself.

I tried this style, and liked it! :D  Even though I love to draw with the more line-less style of my previous drawing, it takes me much longer to complete, and I wanted to do something that was both expressive and relatively quick. As for the style, I sometimes like to mess with Gemini's face! :) Also, I actually own this outfit, and wear emerald colored jewelry!!

Edit: wrong category, lol!

Leona In the Sun
Happy spring, everyone!! :D

Winter weather is non-existent early this year (in comparison to last) and its' really nice! My cat Leona actually begs to be taken outside, and sometimes my husband and I actually put her on a leash. Usually, we just take her outside for a bit; without letter her touch the ground, of course. 

Also, I actually own this skirt. ^_^
