Goooood Morning All! :glomp:

This is the first time I've updated my journal in a year. I'm still on DA but my journals are very much not being updated. :D Yesh.
Since I've got a months vacation from Uni. I'll try to be more active here by perhaps posting more, faving more, commenting more and also I'll be trying to win a subscription. I miss customizing my journal. Below are some of the things I've been doing lately.

I...
Am very solid Freelance Designer (please, visit my portfolio above)
Started designing book covers for Indie Authors, I'll be submitting them here as well so I can credit stock users and just show you guys what I've been doing lately.
Started designing Blog Layouts (mostly on blogger)
Have a book blog where I review books and feature authors.
Started Re-Covering Books on my Book Blog just for fun (Link is above)
Am on Twitter! Follow me!
Am on Goodreads, add me?

Contact me
Email me if you have any inquires about my work including purchasing and commissions and even collaborations if you're interested.

Hey guys!

I've missed DA so much. I come back to find almost everything has changed.
I've just finished my 1st year of College. I can't believe its been that long.

I would like to apology for the lack of manips on my account. I'll post up something soon!
Anyways, I'm now 18! So I can now sell my artwork. If you want to buy any just drop a comment below with the link of which deviation you would like to buy and I'll submit it as a print.! :D


Thanks a bunch guys for your continued support.
I'll try my best to get this account revived!

All the best,
Naj

Hey everyone, NajlaQamber here and as a new co-founder of sa7ra-stars and on behalf of moka107(Founder) I would like to introduce to you a new dawn of this Photo-Manipulation Group!

It has started out as a Photo-Manipulation group for Arabians. But as moka107 worked with it. He decided it would be better if it was for the global audience as well. So now! I'm taking the liberty to invite you all to join this growing group and recently we have just started working on a part of the gallery for stock contributors. So photo-manipulators will have great stock all ready for them in one place for them!
So stockers! This can be a group for you as well!

We also have 2 admin positions open! So check out the group!

1. Be one of the first 10 commenting on this journal entry, and I will add you to the Feature List.

2. For each of the 10 first people answering this journal I will put his/her avatar and three deviations from his/her gallery on the list.

3. If you answer, you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the first place. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

Sorry guys if I dont pick ur best work. :( My DA is still acting funky so I can't load some pages nor can I see most of the images. :cries: which sucks. esp. when I try to get my muse working.

Hey guys!

My DA rarely works, so I can't exactly go on sometimes. Which is a pain in the ass. I want to freaking post up shizz. >.< grrz.! Yea, a white page with the headlines and pics aligned to the left is what I get when DA doesn't work. It annoys me. grrz. >.< Does anyone have the same problem?

I'll have work up soon!

P.S. Uni started, and we just finished our prelim exams. That could be a reason why I haven't been online in awhile as well. ♥♥

Guess what! I resigned from my job!
No, not for a stupid reason. Its cause I'm going to start university soon. So, I have to shape up and rest and study. >.< Dang it.

*sigh*
Well, till school starts in september. I'm going to be paying a lot more attention to deviantart. I've started thanking people for the favs and featuring people again~ yay!

Other than that, I've been studying up in all artist ways possible. Thus you see the photography and new vectors.~ yay. Now, I've got my illustrator working again. I'll start building up my logo section in my portfolio. Which reminds me I still have to finish my portfolio. Once I'm done with it. I'll show it to you guys. Just to get your opinion on things. :D For the time being I think I'll just do some freelance work or work under Zayani Commercial and Cultural Bureau like I did before. Not a big salary but good enough for just spending money for a little girl like myself. I miss my sub too! I wanna feature people on my journal instead of the uneditable articles you see. >.< T-T dang it.

and I just turned 17 on the 26th. yay for me.
w00t w00t.

That'll be all I guess.~
I'll be posting up a series of features not on the amount of favs it gets but on their sizes and shapes canvas wise.

I'm going to start off with the tall canvases.

Heya guys!

Long time long time!

Well, I've just noticed that some of my old and new work have been getting some great attention. I'm happy about it too.
I didn't realize it until I viewed them again and saw how much favs and comments it got. I'm so happy! w00t!

For example, the piece I did back in 2007 got like 600 +favs I was like  O_O

The Fantasy

and one of my fav new ones which got 100 +favs

<a href=redeemer-of-light.deviantart.c…">missing every bit of you

anyways, enough about that.

I resigned from work to continue with uni.
Its kinda sad leaving my colleagues cause they've become family to me in these last 8 months.
I hope I don't cry when I leave. Its 4 days from now.
Well, at least I can say, I'm not an intern anymore. But a Junior Designer.
Next Middleweight Designer then Senior Designer.
Damn, I need a lot of experience to be a Senior. YEARS I tell you. YEARS!

Lol, in the meantime. I'll just do a some freelance work.
I miss having a sub.

This year began with the words 'love' and 'accomplishment'.
The first week of January was so hectic but I was happy I got to go home or go out with my friends and a new special someone.
Accomplishment comes in with a new job offer as well as me finally getting paid at my current job.

DA has been banned in Bahrain by a telecommunications company that our internet happens to be linked to. So I can't access DA at home. Which I hate. Tonight I don't how but I will do some comping I am determined to post up something new!

Till I have the chance.
I'm going to go back to work before I get my ass whooped.

Hey guys,

First off, Belated Merry Christmas and advanced Happy New Year.

I haven't been spending much time here and I also haven't been posting up anything new lately.
Work has taken most of my time now. *sigh*
I'm still trying to adjust my timing so i'll be able to do stuff when I get home.
I've been dying to photomanipulate recently but I haven't got the time.
Personal life has been a nuisance as well. Depressing the hell out of me sometimes.

Hopefully this evening when I get home I'll be able to even scan and post up the drawing I took forever to finish.  


I can't wait for home honestly.
I want to do so much.

I'm supposed to be at work right now. But I've got a fever and all so I didn't go. Everyone at home and at work are all sick. Its the weather... its changing rapidly.

*sigh*
