Hi guys!

Are you on instagram? the DA Seniors are! Right here: Deviantart_Seniors Please join us! full of all things DA including art features, news, tutorials/resources, artist spotlights, and more! Your support is appreciated :heart: I've also started my own Jacquelinebarklait's still a baby too but I intend to fill it with a lot of art related content!

Ok firstly, can I just say I am still in awe to of received the honor of becoming a 'Senior' here on DA. I can't fathom it. Every time I see that shiny medal next to my name, knowing what it means to of received it, it puts the stupidest silly smile on my face, it's so humbling. Not only that, but I am well over the 1.2M views mark across the board and have almost reached my goal of 100K page views on DA! Weeee! And on this note, it's time to announce that I am officially back from my small hiatus (and my DA account will be a little less dead!). Because...

Over the last few months I have realised a dream and a life goal. In light of this, I have spent a lot of time building and launching a new website (still working on it..), spring cleaning all social media, (deleting a few accounts and creating shiny brand new ones - see below! and above! a clean slate, new beginning.) and, I have also been re-editing a lot of old images (I do this often as I improve and find my 'style' but most images I have left alone and they will be kept deep in my DA gallery for old-times sake).

As of 2015 I have dived head-first into digital painting and I am finally ready..I think (after months of finding my 'style', creating concepts, studying/learning, and bringing ideas to life on my new Wacom cintiq-HD13) to share with you something that is my life now, something I breath and which I dedicate all time to - a different side of me other than photography (a passion which initially brought me to DA in the first place as a digital art appreciator).
All this, everything I do creatively, has been a lead up to my novel 'Dawn of Eli' (all the time I have spent and will be spending every day forward is/will be dedicated to building this story and bringing it to life) the idea has been with me for years and it's time I stopped ignoring it. So stay tuned! there's a bit in the works, besides the novel, once my digital painting skills are where they need to be, I will be working on somewhat of a concept/illustration book to go alongside it - with the help from a few other (amazing) artists here on DA who are helping me bring life to my characters. I will still be sharing my photography (for those who are watching me for photography) as well as my digital art/paintings now as I progress!

I'm excited to see where this is headed, but I can't do it alone! - you're support means more than I could ever put into words. Where this goes, it's in your hands. So please join me! help me build this. And, get ready..

:bulletblue: Please feel free to follow me on my brand new instagram here
I intend it to be a high quality account for my photography (many images I won't be posting anywhere else), digital art, wips, and more. I've made this my main social media platform (aside from DA) now I've given fb the flick (for now heh).
:bulletblue: My tumblr blog is no.2
A new art blog of not only my own work but you'll also find an inspiration/resource blog linked - my original blog. 3 birthdays worth (2.5k+ posts) of inspirational photographs, videos, quotes, tumblr classics, and helpful resources for digital painting.

Anyways, that's me for now!

Thank you for your support! :tighthug:</b>
