Hello viewers,

I thought I'd deviate from my homework for a moment to leave this little "special announcement" 

Since my parents' house remodel plans have gone through, I am in the process of packing up my stuff in order to move to the rental house. I should be in this temp place for 6-8 months. (or at least they will be, I'll be in college by then. hah)

But what this means is, until we're moved, (and by "we" I mean Comcast's internet service,) I might not be able to correspond via laptop very sufficiently ^^; this also means that if I draw anything digitally that I'll have to wait a while to post stuff. 

I will have my smart phone as a viable option for communication, but I'd prefer not to use a lot of data.

I guess that's it for now? I'll keep ya'll posted

Hello World, my name is Sophia. I'm an American who loves cats (I have 3, Shadow, Sparky and Rascal) and is a descendant of many countries including Germany, France, Italy, Britain, Scotland, Ireland, Poland, and The Netherlands :) (Meaning I have ancestors from there haha).

I consider myself to be a furry as I have a fursona but I don't have a fursuit or anything. ^^; In addition I love to cosplay, my favorite anime to cosplay from being Hetalia. :D

I can draw anything from animals, to reptiles, to mechs, and even things that don't exist. At the moment my focus is on creatures of various types and adoptables.

I use a Wacom Connect Tablet and Adobe Photoshop CS4 for most of my drawing. Sometimes I draw things out of paper and then scan the image with the Canon Printer/Fax/Scanner thing. :meow:

Besides drawing I also play the trumpet and play various sports including swim, water polo, and track and field (I throw the discus and shot put)

Hey, Shadow!  ^^ It's been a while since we've spoken (like a ridiculously long time).
Anyway, I keep finding myself in the mood to design adoptables but most of the groups I was a part of kind of... died...  Do you know of any that are still active and are accepting any sort of app?  
I'd really like to get back into it.
