C.R. Westman
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
I am currently a Seattle-born student at the University of Washington in Seattle, where I am double-majoring in the Jackson School's European Studies and History, with a focus on WWII Europe. My hobbies include drawing, writing, playing video games, and watching movies. I have taken Japanese in high school and community college, and am currently in my second year of German at the UW.

I am here to appreciate art and make new friends, as well as keep in contact with old ones! This account will feature original art from a few of my stories (both ongoing and new), and perhaps a piece of fan-art here and there.

My main art style is "anime", though I have tried other styles in the past. My tools of the trade are: pencil, pen, Prismacolor markers, and colored pencils.

Hello, Watchers! Long time no see, for those of you who are still around, of course. Just want to give an update so you know that I have not disappeared off of the face of the earth.

Basically, the new academic year at my university started last month, and it's been quite a busy quarter thus far. Only two out of my three classes make me truly busy, but only one out of those two steals my energy and has been giving me intense stress. Long story short, with school started back up again, my creativity levels have taken yet another plummet. I want to reassure those of you who still take a peek at my page that I do still think quite often about my collection of stories and their characters, even if some are present only subconsciously. This inactive phase may continue for some time, unfortunately, but I am still here and still wishing to get back into drawing and writing. At times, I experience moments of inspiration...but motivation is an entirely different thing, especially once I get home and get homework done all I want to do is sit around and play my computer game and watch TV or a movie. (In case anyone is interested, this quarter I am taking German 203 (the stressful class), Colonial North America, and The Vikings.)

I am hoping that things will get better once this quarter ends in early December, and that winter quarter will be less frustrating (again, it is basically just one class this quarter that is driving me mad!). Still think heavily upon Blood and Ashes, Kazekiri, Wind Bird, the characters of A Soldier and His Maus (ASaHM), and a fresh story tentatively titled FireHeart. All I need now is the time and motivation to actually get progress done, or even a simple drawing related to any one of these stories.

In addition, quite stressed out and worried by current events in the world, and feeling an overall displeasure with the human race, particularly those without any common sense. I want very much to live until the Mars mission of the 2030s, tyvm! :shakefish:

So, there you have it. I am not dead, but my creativity energy currently is. :(

PS: Absolutely hate the new look dA has given itself. All I will say... :no:
