I've returned from my hospital stay and will now commence my duties on dA.
I've wanted to sincerely and gratefully *T H A N K Y O U* for all the loving support from you guys.
I was quite touched from all the messages and birthday wishes. You guys are just the greatest. I feel like I have the most caring watchers/friends on here. Really guys, wow, thank you.
I'll try to reply to all of you. I feel a bit overwhelmed from the amount, but I'll try my best.
An apology for taking so long and if I may not get to you.
I hope I'll be able to draw more again.. I'm still a bit weak from the whole hospital business, but let's take it one step at a time.
Sorry if I made you guys worry!
Take the greatest of care.
I love you all!

I'm having a sale on prints right now! LTR prints are 17 bucks, and Poster A3+ prints are 35! USA shipping is included!!
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.

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!2 years 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!
Reunite a FamilyI don't need to tell you how important families are. Whether you are the parent or the child, the worst thing that can happen is to be separated from each other.

"At 19, being a U.S citizen--born and raised--I currently work an hourly job and share a home with three other people.

I have been recently diagnosed with PTSD and OCD--I have nightmares that one day I will wake up to the news that my parents are dead in war-torn Mexico. My mind is filled with the thoughts of what could have been, and it hurts so much. While that may not sound so severe to you, to my parents: it does."

I started with just 7GB of free storage when I signed up for OneDrive (previously known as SkyDrive) over 3 years ago. Because I had the account (I never used it) for quite a while, they offered 10GB more storage. Later, I got an extra bit of storage for Camera Backup, which gave me another 15GB free storage, 3GB for Camera Backup on Windows 8, and other little things which totaled up to 40GB of storage! ...Which is more than I'll probably need for a long time anyway.
Now, MS is offering an additional 200GB of storage to those who do their promotional stuff... totally free and easy.

What better way to greet 2012 than with great dA community project? To be able to work with fellow artists and writers to create one amazing story?
The Odyssey into 2012 project by dA admin techgnotic is designed to unleash your imagination! In short, a new prompt will be released every Wednesday and Saturday in December for writers to bring to life and for artists to give light. One story and illustration will be chosen for each prompt and the resulting chapters will be combined into a continuous story by multiple artists and writers.

Writing Effective DialogueWe've all struggled through figuring out how to write dialogue that not only gets the information out there, but also helps build characters or advance the plot. There are tons of books and blogs out there on the topic, too. But just reading about it doesn't do much good if we're not ready to try it out. Give it a go and see what other people think. But let's start with the basics.Writing Effective Dialogue10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What is Effective Dialogue?
Dialogue that's written well will reveal character traits, add to the tension and suspense, helps cut down on text walls of description and of course, advances your plot. One of the most important things to keep in mind when you're writing dialogue is that in fiction, your reader doesn't want to read all the mundane things we say on a regular basis. So if it's not moving the plot or adding to your character's personality, you should think about cutting it completely.
What do I mean by reveals character traits?

First, I cannot give you sneak peeks. Sorry, but waiting is part of the game and half the fun! When IDW and Hasbro give a thumbs up, it will come here first!
Second: Yes, these are original stories (no, I'm not gonna tell you what it is yet!), not adaptations of existing episodes. This gives us the chance to do things that maybe couldn't be done in an episode due to time restriction or other limitations! The target audience is the exact same as the show, meaning it will be great for kids and adults alike. We know what a major fa

You don't need an expensive art course to learn and progress, sometimes the answers are not far away. On DeviantArt, artists not only share their artworks but many of them are willing to share their working secrets, they create tutorials and FAQ journals or simply answer to your notes if you ask them.
