:iconemptyspaceplz: OVA Integra and Alu-bat by Sir-Catherine No-Man's LandDead and gone,
Life has fled.
What is left is better off dead.
Dark over and red below,
This is no-man's land
Where soldiers dread to go.
A pipsqueak tweet is the bugle's call.
The charge is yelled "Over the wall!"
To death's waiting arms they climb.
They seep onto the deadly land,
No longer able to care
That the world dies up there.
A nightmare is the scene.
Lost pawns of humanity
To satisfy war's dark vanity.
Dark over and red below,
This is no-man's land
Where soldiers dread to go.
Dark is evil and light is good.
Sparks and flashes reign around.
Showering death with their goodness.
Noise and confusion in deathly silence.
Bombs and mines from Hell's own stores.
Colors blur and sweetness kills.
Fences pierced and then destroyed.
Craters formed and quickly filled.
Death's own warriors they all are.
Dark over and red below,
This is no-man's land
Where soldiers dreaded to go.

:iconemptyspaceplz: Tears of InkCrying out loud
Doesn't feel right.
Neither does shouting
Or putting up a fight.
    Tears aren't endless-
    My throat ran dry.
    People stopped caring.
    The world was a lie
I found some paper,
An old, used pen;
Turned my inside out;
Let my emotions rule again.
    Paper after paper
    Filled with words in ink...
    No need to worry.
    No need to think.
Let it all go
The scars run deep.
It's bleeding out.
This is what i keep:
    A book with letters
    Written in tears,
    My heart on paper,
    My deepest fears.
ShadowI live in a shadow
On a brighter day
I walk in the darkness
On my own "Twisted" way
    People look
    But they don't care
    They think I'm weird
    cause of the clothes i wear
They don't understand me
Then don't want to know
My part of the Story
The one i don't show
    They just look away
    They think I'm a freak
    They hope I'll change
    But I'm not that weak
I have my soul
I still have my mind
I know what they're trying
I'm not blind
    I wont follow them
    Even when I'm alone
    I have my own path
    I'm not a clone
So i keep walking
And let them stare
Thinking to myself
"I'm just rare"
    I will manage
    Make it trough the day
    Never will I care
    About what they want to say
The shadow is my home
My most trusted friend
It never lies
It doesn't pretend
So i let go of it all
Hope i don't fall
I close my eyes
Let the darkness rise
    I feel the familiar embrace
    Of the cold shadow on my face
Is it real?Look at me
Look at my eyes
Look at the ocean
Look at the skies
      What do you see
      What do you feel
      Does it look right
      Does it look real
You look and you touch
But you don't see or feel
      This reality...
      I wonder if it's real

On another note~
I just noticed I have 700 watchers! Thank you all! I appreciate and love you all!

Okay so I accidentally spent most of my points on a MYO waterdog slot and a tranceling so I need to make back the points.
So yeah Iron Artist icons
50 x 50 pixels (no animations)
30:points: (Icons are usually 100-200:points: they will never be 30 again after this.

Btw iron artist means taking 100 cheaper then usual commissions of something.

This is Patra. 

Patra is a beautiful female black fox with purple eyes. She is the princess of the temple in mirage oasis, who makes her debut in Pac-Man Party. She resembles the Egyptian deity Anubis.


But she was in a game barely anyone even played, no one has even heard of her! How did I discover her? I work at a game stop and I spent a couple hours organizing their Wii section, and she was on the cover art for the game. I had to know more about her! And do you know what I found when I looked up fanart for her? Barely anything! And what there is, sucks! There is literally no decent fanart of her! O_o How can this be! She's as cute as Elh from Solatorobo, which alone warrants fan art (:iconraijinsenshi: 's words)! This is a sin!

Well I'm going to rectify this! >.< It's time for a CONTEST! :D *Applause*


That's right everyone, I'm holding a contest! You have from now (Aug. 12) to the end of the month (Aug. 31) to participate in the contest. Here are the rules.

1) Fanart and fictions are allowed, but I'm extremely strict on fictions. If it has bad grammar or spelling, I'm not going to bother reading it. And it may be hard for you to stay true to her character, so fanart is just easier, but I'll try to make time and effort for any fictions entered.

2) Nothing Explicit. If you can't post it on deviantart then it's not acceptable. I'm not looking for fanart of her getting *beep*ed in the *beep*. The art I want can range from cute things like her sipping from a juice box or nomming on one of your characters heads, to more kinky things like getting her skirt flipped up or spanked. Of course obvious things are not allowed like Gore, Vore, Scat, Watersports, Farting, Fingering, HEAVY Bondage, ect.

3) Your OCs ARE allowed. If you wanna draw her interacting with pacman characters, other random licensed characters, or even your own original charatcers, that's perfectly fine.

4) You can do as much fanart as you want. In fact, quality AND Quantity are going to be taken into consideration here. I'm trying to get as much decent fanart as I can, not just one from everyone. So if you wanna do more, I emplore you to do more!

5) No hate. This contest is for fun and to show love for a newly discovered adorable character. Show positive feedback even to your competition.

I assure you, you're not doing all this for nothing of course.

1st place = Up to three fictions from me, whether they be completely different, or a part of a series.

2nd place = Up to two fictions from me, whether they be completely different, or a two part series.

3rd place = 1 fiction from me.

It can be about original characters, characters from a series you like (but I have to know about the series otherwise I can't write about it) and so on. It won't be super omega long though. Writing fictions takes time and effort, and I do have a life people. It won't have to be super short either, but I'm not going to write the odyssey for you keep in mind. :XD: 

Those are the rules and the prizes. I look forward to what you people draw whether it's dirty, cute, or casual. Let me know when you have fanart of her in case I don't notice it right away. I'll post your contest entries here for everyone to see. Good luck everyone! :meow:


There aren't any... yet. >w>

Because I've been thinking about chinchillas too much lately. XD

Fairly recently I came upon a realization of the sad state of 2D animation as an art form in America right now. I hear about great projects and ideas coming out of Europe, especially France, and it's not even fair to say how 2D animation is doing in Japan. Anime will never die, man. But here in the USA, animation has stagnated and is strangled under corporate executives eager for quick bucks and cheap costs. They don't care about 2D as an art form, or an outlet for creative storytelling. It's more time consuming than 3D animation and has more "limits" than 3D, Flash is cheaper and generally lazier, so therefore 2D is not worth it. No studio is brave enough to take a chance and experiment with creative new ideas, especially in the genre of action shows. All they want is reboots and stale comedies, all animated in Flash or 3D. A good portion of my favorite cartoon shows of the last decade all had their legs cut out from under them because of poor executive decision-making. And fittingly crowning this whole mess is this bit of news: Disney laid off the last of its entire 2D animation department just last week, the department the entire studio as we know it was built upon.

I've been hearing a lot that 2D animation is dead. That there's no place for it in America anymore.


Some animation professionals who are more learned and wiser than I have said that this state will not last forever simply because it can't. There have been many times in the past that it seemed like 2D animation would never be feasible again, but determined studios like Disney and Warner Bros. and Hannah-Barbera came up with inventive techniques and different methods to keep the art form alive until it bloomed again. And this is what needs to begin now. A new renaissance of traditional animation to not only rival but equal the quality we see in both anime and the nostalgic cartoon classics of years gone by. And if I can, I would like to be a part of this.

I have an idea. A very, very ambitious idea. I'm incredibly intimidated by it, but excited at the same time, because I know it can be done. I've seen it done.

I am going to make a short animated film, planned to be about 30-45 minutes long. And I mean that in every sense of the word "make". I am going to write, direct, storyboard, animate, and edit this project myself. The only aspects I won't be doing alone are voice acting and music, because A) I have no musical talent to save my life and B) A female voice from me sounds terrible.

I pondered for weeks on what story I would want to tell, juggling potential ideas around and weighing all the pros, cons, and technical difficulties each option would bring. I wanted the story to have interesting and compelling characters, a straightforward plot that would allow for poignant character themes and moments, and a setting and style suited for crazy action. I narrowed it down to three, and then believed I had finally picked one...only for a brand new concept to swoop in literally out of nowhere while talking to my lady love on Skype and captivate all my imagination for days. I have at last found my story.

I want to keep most of the specifics a secret, but I'll tell you the very simplified basics. The story is set in 1942 during the Second World War. It focuses on a pair of Russian women: snipers who patrol and protect a strategically valuable mountain pass from invading German forces. When they learn that an elite team of Nazi special ops assassins will be moving through the region, it is up to them to halt the enemy's plot. It involves quests for justice, questionable science, bizarre weaponry, and beautiful women with guns. Also explosions.

I am nowhere near ready to begin writing the script yet, but I will strive to keep this project at the top priority aside from a job and commissions. This means that it could very likely take over a full year at least before the final film is complete. incidental work from me, such as Predator's Moon and random drawings, will be fewer and farther between, but I will try to keep Predator's Moon coming on a somewhat even schedule (which is hard when I'm constantly hit with writer's block, oy vey).

As I mentioned above, I will need assistance with music and voice acting. I have a few freelance musicians in mind for the score. I know I will voice one of the male characters, maybe two (possibly three, depending on how much of a range I can deliver,) but I will need two very talented actresses for the lead roles. I will post updates and notes as well as an open casting call as more details are set in stone during the pre-production phase.

I cannot promise any money at this time to interested voice actors. However, once more of the project is underway, I'm considering opening a Kickstarter to help fund this film. That money would go towards purchasing better sound effects, helping pay for music, purchasing computer programs to aid in production, paying my voice actors, paying for DVD copies, etc. I don't know how successful a Kickstarter campaign would be, given that I'm a small artist on DeviantArt with nothing big to my name. But that's a long ways off from now.

When the film is eventually completed, my hope is to take it to conventions and film festivals, sell DVDs, and maybe inspire others to help keep the art of traditional animation going strong.

So, this is my plan. I'd love to know what you all think!
