Amanda Hampe
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States

I'm an artist with talent and skill inside of her.
I love to draw anytime; rain or shine or in the clouds of boredness.
I'm a kind of girl who loves to do mixed media attempts, espeically with eye shadow make-up.
I have a crazy imaginative mind that leads me to more stories and random ideas.
I keep an open mind at times and trying things that are new to me, like painting and digital art.
I am always known with my saying, "I may be strange to you, but that's the way I am."
I leave you now with my final greeting, "Keep on drawing!" :D

UPDATE (06/07/2014)

I couldn't believe it, but I finally got a Tumblr account and just started reblogging lately. I may post up some old and new works there, mostly sketches and random writings. It's one of the ways to expose more of my art around the world.

So... if you have a Tumblr, please feel free to follow me (for I might follow you back in return)! :D


NOTE: Since this is going to be big long ass journal update, hence the name of this entry, I decided to organize with simple summaries. As much I like to type novels, I would like to keep things understandable as I provide you an update in my life. I hope you wouldn't mind. :) Plus, it will be easier for you. 

First things first --> DEVIANT FEATURE TIME! :w00t: 



As one of the prizes I offered for the :iconcaius-x-lightning:'s Job Classes contest, (which by the way, I won second place), I present the lovely and victorious ReflectTheLight an art feature with five pieces, including her winning fan fic "Dance to the Death".

ReflectTheLight, I congrats you for your wining piece that places you in first place. I shall begin your feature with it if you won't mind. :)

Winning Piece: Dance to the DeathHeels clicking against the stone floor, pulse pounding in her head, the young warrior made her way down the corridor to the doors which held her fate. Columns of grey marble glowed in the moonlight that streamed in from the scattered skylights above her, casting eerie shadows around her. The corridor opened before her like a creature's gaping maw, its columns its teeth, threatening to devour her. Every instinct told her to turn and run, but she knew if she did, the guards would retrieve her and drag her back. So she pressed on.
Her white silken gown swished around her body as she moved, the loose fabric around her bust drawing together into a bodice decorated with delicate embroidery and beading before giving way to the skirt that brushed against her legs and the weapons she had secretly strapped to her legs. Gossamer fabric covered her shoulders before bunching above her elbows and falling to her wrists. It was a gown fit for a goddess, and within the hour, it would accompany her to t
Dance to the Death

In this story, Lighting (Claire) volunteered to take her sister's place where she must battle to the death with the king who is Caius. I'm not giving any spoilers on the end because I want you guys to read it, it's very good. But I will tell you that the fic is inspired by the Dancers class; Lightning in a stunning soon-to-be-blood-stained dress and Caius in light weighted clothes (I'm thinking of Bartz's dancer attire), and both contained daggers, knives, katanas, and other small weapons. The author did a lovely job using verbs and adjectives to describe each scene and action. I was moved when the battle begins and remained hooked until the end which had caught me in a unexpected twist (read it to find out what).

Overall, after reading the story, I was glad that Dance to the Death got first place, because not only it involves job classes, but also the fighting action and emotions that were written all over. Also, it often rare of seeing Lightning battle in a dress, it was a fun image to imagine of. :)

Not only ReflectTheLight wrote fan fics, but she also attempted a varity of art forms from jewelry and drawing. She also created her set of original characters. I know right away when I look through her gallery, she is a Final Fantasy-Kingdom Hearts fan.

Four pieces:

The Year of Hope by ReflectTheLight The Year of Hope

This piece is rather a simple and delicate  drawing of a flower, which I think it's a lily, and the composition is overall elegant. It brings me hope that one year I would see beautiful flowers if Mother Nature doesn't change much of the weather.

Storm (OC Profile) by ReflectTheLight Storm (OC Profile)

Somehow I love meeting interesting people, that are, original characters that were conceived from the artists' ideas. One of her OC for Kingdom Hearts is named Storm. I find her more of a sporty and energetic chick in a royal family. And the fact she dislikes dresses? There's an interesting OC.

Anyway, formally, I liked Storm's defaulted attire; mixes of blues and black and some whites defines her as appealing to me (whether in color schemes)

Who am I?Who am I? Where do I belong?
Am I to exist here with you
Or fade away like a foggy cloud?
Warm hands, no heart
Life but not a feeling
Everything a whir
Where do I belong?
Who am I? Do you know?
Can you tell me please?
This question pricks me,
Like a needle, ever constant pain
You're here for me, my comfort
A beacon in the darkness
Do you know where I belong?
Who am I? Where's my place?
Will I ever find my voice?
Will it end at a cliff hanger,
or will I see this story's end?
You are my friend, my everything
It's in your eyes that I realize
It's with you I belong
You are my identity
Who am I?

I understand that this poem was whipped up in a ten-minute timeframe as she mentioned in her description. However, I did find rhythm with questions and simple phrases she had to use, and I think she arranged them well.

I promise (Sokai 2013) by ReflectTheLight I promise (Sokai 2013)

I just loved when you showcased your jewelry with a drawing background just to make them pop out. This is definitely a very simple sweet arrangement of her Kairi and Sora cosplay necklaces over a Namine-style drawing. The pic was to celebrate Sokai Day, which I would safely assume it's the day to celebrate the OTP of Sora and Kairi. My apologies for not knowing Kingdom Hearts very much.





Waubonsee Community College Graduation Commendation Last Thursday

An awesome event filled with laughter, amusement, and Michael Jackson's Moonwalking on stage (one of my classmates from my Color art class attempted that, he is awesome!)

Pictures and Facebook were over it and somehow I'm Legolas' sister because of my hair style. I was wearing two side braids and another behind my head. It was my mother's and brother's idea that I looked like Legolas, which I am flattered because I love The Lord of the Rings. :love:

Two Summer Colleges; Associates Degree Obtained by this August

I have a Humanities class starting on June 9th and a History class starting July 7th. Both of which will be every Tuesdays and Thursdays and will last about a month (which beats four to five months in a semester!). The class time will be longer though, but I am sure I will get lunchbreaks. I am not worried at all. In fact, I'm missing Waubonsee already. Just because I will get a degree doesn't mean I'll never drop by at the college anymore. It's like my second home and I want to visit my professors and former classmates. 

With less classes and time on homework and projects, I should have a little more freetime for fun and possibly art related stuff. So, that's cool. :)

Possible School Transfer??

I am hopefully going to transfer to either Columbia College and the SAIC in Chicago (they are expensive but have amazing art programs, SAIC in particular). If the money is not going well so much or if I'm happened to not have enough money to pay for one semester's tuition, then I will consider local colleges that offered art programs.

I will get some time to earn money and reconsideration, because I planned to enroll next year for sure, perhaps in the Fall 2015.

Driver's License: Hopefully Obtained by August this year

Three repeatable words: PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE

Along with that, I also will need to practice parallel parking and all that parking jazz. According to my mom I am constantly getting better at parking in commercial lots and being aware of my surroundings. It will all eventually came to me. In the meantime, PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE (now officially my mantra).

Another Job Hunting Attempt

There was a commercial adversting for young people who have disabilities (and I'm one of them with Speech Apraxia) called WhatYouCanDoCampaign. I had submitted a short "resume" about my skills and talents and I will get email (hopefully) for a chance of a possible job landing. My mom strongly encouraged me to do this, and I'm glad I did because I will need to get myself some work and start making money for my future education and life. So, fingers crossed and prayers.

If you are living in the United States and have a disability like I do and you're looking for a job or a workplace, then here's the link to the website. There you will find useful information and you can even submit your own resume to get yourself out there.…


Thank goodness for that! My mom's boyfriend has a good-paying job and is helping out with the rent, so thankfully we are not moving. The kitchen is getting some home improvements and becoming more roomy and spacy. It was an interesting and somewhat chaotic week; I had to eat less food and had to wash dishes in a washing bin which was actually fun and simple. Hopefully when I returned home from Grandma's this weekend, the home improvement will complete.

While that's good news to hear, I seriously need to start a home improvement of my own: organizing and pimping my room. Now that I got a dual pin board and dry erase broad and numerous boxes I need to organize like crazy and label things. That is no problem because I naturally got the skills for organization, I just need to put in the time and effort to apply them. So, I'll be Summer Cleaning sort of speak. :)


Artistic Fangirl News (formerly Final Fantasy Fangirl News):

Future Forecast: A Chance of Massive Sketch Dumps

Thanks to Mircosoft Publisher, expect more sketch dumps and my pure randonness! *insert evil grin here*

I planned to do a monthly thing to post at least two sketch dumps since I had been sketching a lot lately, especially doing classes and breaks between projects. In addition, I would like to revise my Point Commissions chart since I had that discovery within my sight. Until then, the prices are remained the same. 

PS: I WILL NEED to revise my Art Status soon to keep it all updated.
PSS: I got a new OTP list for Nintendo Characters which will be listed under my FF OTPs list. Check it out! :D 

Break from Final Fantasy, Revisiting Super Smash Bros and Nintendo


During Spring Break of this year, ZackScottGames on YouTube did walkthroughs of Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. I view them out of boredom and was really glad that I was entertained with his entertaining videos. Check him out and his videogame walkthroughts!…

Another YouTuber Chuggaconray is no competition when it comes with entertaining educational  videogame videos.… I had learned a lot from him, and got hooked with his Kid Icarus Uprising walkthrough. Also because of a weird boner between Bartz and Pit (didn't I mentioned this too many times already?!).

Super Smash Bros will have a new game coming out this year (for the 3DS this summer and the Wii U this winter). I kept myself up to date with the latest new and returning characters and possible different kinds of modes and items including Final Smashes. Even though I don't have the system to play the game, I am excited nevertheless because of possible fanart I can make in addition to reminiscing the good old days in Nintendo.

Thus, I am doing crazy sketches and artworks that involves juxta-switching (two different characters switching attires or personalities, etc.) and attempted cosplays for the EyesoFF's May Fanart Contest.…

This is one of them! -->  Dissidia Warriors Cosplaying Kid Icarus by LadyJuxtaposition

Final Fantasy…

I am still in the process of revising my Dissidia Juxtaposition Theory fanfiction. I had to take a break from it because either no good ideas came in mind or because of college and real life. My goal though is to finish the revising and hopefully get Part III going by the end of this summer.

After reliving Super Smash Bros Brawl, I will go back watching Final Fantasy games again, starting with FFIV The After Years and maybe FFIII.

I remembered that I donated prizes from the :iconcaius-x-lightning:'s Job Classes contest

ReflectTheLight --> Journal Feature with Five Pieces
Status: Already done and submitted.

vasilina-the-dragon --> Achromatic Drawing of Caius and Lightning or FF/KH character
Status: Haven't Started Yet (please NOTE me)


If you happened to survive reading this massive long update, I kudos to you and to your bravery. :clap: I will have to try to write monthly updates from now on, maybe bi-monthly updates so not many of you thought I was dead or went to a different universe which will definitely be Dissidia!

So, how are you guys? Anything new or special or nothing at all? Respond to me people! :D
