It's been a month now since school reopens and Hurricane Irma pass Florida and The Bahamas. Well keep in mind that we don't have that much damage only tornado crashes to Freeport but not where I live, and we still got some damages from Hurricane Matthew back on October 2016. Yep I'm back and suppose to post an update but I have school that next day and the power only turned off for almost two days but I'm back but not fully back. Yes I got the point that MLP the movie is here but keep in mind that I don't go to movies anymore since December 2009 and there are going to be some times I'll be offline since I'll be extremely busy with school, courseworks, and exams. This is my final year in High School and I'm going to be in a hiatus at times and there are time I'll be busy drawing as well as renovate my room and studying.
2012 is the year when everything is a bit different about myself. Ever since Littlest Pet Shop Online (LPSO) have shut dow in December 1st, 2011 , I've been discovered new things and introduced to Apple products and Adobe Photoshop for the first time. Before I joined Deviantart in October, August 1st, 2012 I've joined Instagram and made my first post: www.instagram.com/p/NzY6_iNTjy…
I was having so much fun taking photos and using filters for the first time. Before I use the name 7webkinzkid, when I first created the account, it used to be under a different username and it was lpsfreak. Yep same username what I use in deviantart. A month and a half later, I joined Deviantart under a username (AKA the same username as my first account on instagram) and this is where this photo came around:
2012 is a year what I also learned how to use paid softwares for the first time and Photoshop was one of them. I was still a littlest pet shop fan but I wasn't interested on MLP until June 2012. At first it was weird but I got the hang of it.
Let's head over to 2013. 2013 was the year of vectoring and wallpapers. Before all of that, I was just a girl who pretty much play cute games now I'm an artist in 2017 but In May 2013, I was prancing how to vector and I was introduced to inkscape. before I have to use inkscape, I was recolor the vectors and didn't credit to the original owners but I'll find the original owners someday. First vector I did was Pinkie Pie vector:
It was a bit messy when I first vectored them out but I keep practicing. May 2013 was this artwork:
Littlest pet shop: Save the old pets and game was an event we made cause since Hasbro released the TV show in 2012 but now it finished and now people not complaint about them anymore and still the most top wallpaper what have the most comment. Jesus. August was the month I was making wallpapers well better MLP wallpapers and ended up in Equestria Daily a couple of times and it was crazy. December 25th, 2013 , first time using Adobe Illustrator and this is a newer way how I make vectors here's the original version:
Also I make a new OC back in September 2013 and named her Flares the unicorn. Called her Flares because of me using lens flares on my wallpapers and I've been testing the optical flares plug in on Adobe After Effects:
Yep first vector, looks like shit but I was practicing practicing how to vector until I got the fact how to vector.
vector improving and early version of fares:
Late 2014 weeks before I got suspended from Deviantart for two weeks, I remade Flares but she's no longer called Flares the Unicorn she's now named Flares Midnight with new coat color, new tail colors, new ear style, new mane style with hairband, new eye color and now the pupil is not black but a dull-like-purple color and keep in mind, she's not blind. Also I changed my username from lpsfreak to shaynellelps since I've activate my one month core membership.
The year when I joined the MLP-VectorClub
as a member and not only my vectoring skills are getting better but my drawing skills and shading skills and this is also the year when I started worked on my first wallpaper series for both desktop and IOS devices for iPhone 4s-7Plus, iPad 3-4, Air, Pro, and iPod Touch 5 and 6.
It was also the time when I first posting up my photo updates whenever I have exams and when I'm traveling.
vacation status preveiw
exams status preveiw
2016 is the year when I released my first wallpaper series and changed my username from shaynellelps to illumnious. The reason why I picked illumnious as a username is because of this reason: nothing what related to anything fandom because there will be times I'll post something non-fanmade arts. I also improved my shading skills a little bit and also longest hiatus between October and November due to Hurricane Matthew.
still on 2017 so I'll update this on January 2018
Yep 2017 marked the 5 years of me doing digital art and smart devices photography on instagram also, it's the year that I improving my drawing skills and it's also the time when I post another wallpaper series but it's in two different resolutions: 1080p and 4K.
Few weeks after my vacation which is in June and for the first time since 2009 and first time in my history I brought a male character doll. well yeah it's a journal what I posted back in February 28th, 2015
about me buying a limited edition 1:6 scale collector figure
and totally go for that goddam idea in July 8th and I did it, I buy it and I'm happy with it
(Keep in mind in The bahamas, I have to let the shipping agency bring it to their office and I have to pay for it. But if you want to find out why, you can just note me and I can tell you why). anyways, long story but I have so much fun taking photos with it and for anyone who want to know, it's the 11th doctor (series 7) from Doctor Who and the company Big Chief Studios was the one who made them but I ordered it from Amazon.
This is not all the history for 2017 but more coming in 2018.
fourth collaboration project with Parcly-Taxel

Most of the times when I got featured on EQD was me doing wallpapers but in 2015 and 2017 three vectors got feature.
