21 ▌ Concept Artist and Illustrator ▌ Mixed Media ▌ Student
My name is Nerida R.Wynter and I am a twenty one year old American artist. I am currently a community college student. I hope to be enrolled in the School of Visual Arts and aim for a career in graphic design, illustration, and concept art. I want to achieve many dreams in my future such as owning a business, becoming an art director, and being able to influence the world with my work.

Everything should be up to date now, including links to my active accounts across the internet (I had my old, deleted sketch blog link up for almost a year. Yikes!). For the, maybe five of you that care for a little rambling, I have returned! Well, this isn't much news at all, obviously, but I'd like to announce it anyway. To be fair, I have posted more this year than I have within a three year time span.
This is mainly do to my perfectionist attitude I acquired during my late high school years and my anxiety and depression that grew incredibly too powerful. I think you have seen me be public with my breakdowns, especially last year. Probably one of the worst years of my life, if anything. I had anxiety attacks everyday, I was nervous stepping out of the house and going to school, getting depressed about my future and so on. This resulted in a lot of incidents that piled on each other; pressure from school, my mother who has begun to care less about my overall being, pressures I have put upon myself, and more. Hell I was afraid of showing off my ocs because I kept comparing to myself and I was robbed of the fun in creating from some terrible experiences both online and off. I even contemplated suicide. It's funny, four years ago I would have never thought of ending my own life.
However, I have been recovering at a great pace and my activity in art proves that fact. I have been, at least, doodling every day. I am starting to get comfortable with showing off my ocs and the like. I have been thinking of critiquing random artists again in the critique wanted section on dA. I'm still not out of the woods, though. I am still incredibly socially awkward outside and I get extremely anxious in a large crowd of people. I still get a few anxiety attacks and my depression hasn't completely gone away but I'm striving to become more self-loving. My next hurdle is getting a job. I'm very anxious of screwing up or working as a cashier because I suck at math (and just making a fool of myself). But I will say that I'm getting better at my own pace. For once, I'm actually optimistic
