There's way more than what is pictured above, including fanart type stuff! You know, if you'd like to help me pay electric bills and student loans and stuff. And get some nice monster girl times in your wall/desk. That would be PRETTY COOL. Because business has been kinda slow. I'm not gonna die or anything yet, but some money would be neat.

Life has been pretty crazy lately. I just moved to a new apartment and we won't get our internet until a week later so I just want announce a few things while I still have the chance (using my friend's wifi atm).
1. Fanime was amazing! Thank you all who dropped by my table, and sorry that I lost my voice on the 4th day too much talking lol... It was great making new friends, hanging out with old friends, and just seeing other deviants in real life! I'm sorry a lot of the prints sold out on the first day, but I will try to open online sales for certain prints once I get my internet back. And I will definitely print more for future conventions
My deepest apologies for not having 1000 Words for Fanime. The printers at Active Media Publishing http://www.activemediapublishing.com/ promised over and over that they would have it ready, but they didn't, and when we called them about it, they hung up on us. As a matter of fact, we still don't have the book

Hallmarks of Lazy Writing
ShadowedAcolyte here for projecteducate's Prose Basics Week. I decided to tackle "lazy writing" as a topic, because they always say "write what you know" and boy, do I know laziness. Then I realized there were dozens of ways to be a lazy writer, so I heroically narrowed the scope of my article down to one broad topic: readymades. After talking about what a "readymade" is, I'll explain why they should be avoided in writing prose*, and I'll finish with some tips to help you avoid using them yourself.
Before we go any further, I should note that the term is not a technical one. It is the word I was taught to use to identify a set of common problems with weak writing, so it's the word I use. I hope you'll find this article helpful, but it's not a textbook.
*I say "prose" because it's Prose Basics Week, but readymades infect poetry as well. If you're more a poet than a prose

HOW TO FEEL FULFILLED AS AN ARTIST"When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying nights of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to eat, having enough money to feed the children, the birds, ...the dog. You aren't just buying a thing - you are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all of the above worth the fear and doubt; something that puts the life into living." - Rebekah Joy PlettHOW TO FEEL FULFILLED AS AN ARTIST3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Thank You!Thank you guys so much for the deviousness award! But it's really not just this award, thank you all for the support through out the years.Thank You!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!
The Other SideSo what the one other thing I do beside work?The Other Side3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Man I've been a dance gamer for over 10 years now. I try to play for style more than anything. I like finding songs that are hard enough to keep you moving, but easy enough that you can still look cool doing it.
This is the one other thing I do besides work work work. Really it's the only exercise I get maybe once a week. But lately with changes in my diet I've been able to get in really good shape. I happened to be there one night and a passerby decided to start recording. This was linked to me by my buddy Archie.
Funny tidbit, before I was ever known for making movies. I was "famous" in my hometown for dancing at arcades. My friends would even joke about the group of kids who liked to watch me back then as "monty's fanclub."

Masters of Anatomy- KickstarterMasters of Anatomy- Kickstarter1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, the kickstarter for 'Masters of Anatomy' finally started! This project is just awesome and something great for aspiring artists (imo). I'm glad to be apart of this project along side of some SERIOUS talent (far better than I).
Quoting from the Masters of Anatomy website- " This book is for any artist interested in human anatomy and proportions. By examining the subtle differences between similar drawings you will strengthen your knowledge of the human anatomy and begin to recognize which areas contain the majority of deviations. Though Loomis's sketches are a fantastic tool, we believe that a single reference is limiting and counter-intuitive to creative minds. It makes the learning curve rigid and inflexible. We believe multiple references are needed to examine the true definition of an "ideal". And since the drawings appear in the same place on each page it makes side-by-side comparison much easier and more fun.&
MemoriesI've been in China for almost a week now, and all the memories I have of this place is flooding back. Unfortunately, many of those memories are quite negative.

I last visited China almost five years ago. I was unfortunate enough to be stranded at the LAX airport for two days. During that time, I met another girl my age who was also returning to China to visit family. We talked for a long time and I found out her parents are also divorced like mine. She told me how her stepmom would regularly burn her with cigarette buds. I was horrified but I felt lucky that my stepmom is kind to me. I told her I was lucky to have a nice stepmom. I had never been so wrong.
When I first arrived, my stepmom greeted me kindly, and we talked, joked, and hung out like a regular family would. But her mask was quickly cracking a
