THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE
I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I

PatienceI think over the many years of dating and break-ups, if there’s anything I learnt about loving someone and being in a relationship, it’s patience.Patience5 years ago in Personal More Like This
It’s not about how sweet you can be, how much gifts you give, or even how much you’re willing to do for your loved one. It’s about how patient and understanding you can be when things aren’t going right, when someone does something that makes you angry, sad, or hurt.
If I think over every single argument I’ve had in the past, and the break ups, most of the time, if only one side could be more patient and understanding, everything could’ve been prevented.
It’s actually really easy to treat someone nicely, it’s easy to do a lot of sweet things for someone, it’s easy to shower someone with love and gifts. But it’s so hard, so hard, to be understanding and patient when things aren’t going the way you want. &

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is

Here's to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.

“My paintings could probably be categorized into two groups,
especially if you are one of those people who like labeling things into neat packages.
I have a strong emotional side, sensitive and poetic, with all the adorning side-effects,
which enables me to lift paintings up to what has been referred to as visual poetry or poetic symbolism.
The other me is cool and collected, witty and sharp,
with a passion for philosophy, psychology and games…
That is rather the surrealistic and wacky me, and so are some of my paintings.”

How to Adapt The Wheel of Time for TV (Correctly)I know we're all still reeling from the astounding degree of douchebaggery spewing forth from Red Eagle Entertainment, what with their atrocious not-pilot, and their subsequent lawsuit against Harriet McDougal. However, as I watched the beautiful catastrophe that was Billy Zane's Ishamael, it hit me that this was the closest anyone has EVER come to actually making a series out of The Wheel of Time. Oh sure, there was Flight From Shadow which was infinitely better in every way; but we all knew that was a one-time deal.How to Adapt The Wheel of Time for TV (Correctly)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
But it got me to thinking: If someone were to actually make The Wheel of Time, how could they go about it? My first thought was one season for every book. Of course, my SECOND thought was "No! That's a horrible idea!" Let's face it, fourteen seasons is a bit much to ask a non-fan to sit through, not to mention an unreasonable commitment for any interested network. And do we really want to spend a whole season on Crossroads of Twilight?
Well I've had a couple more thoughts

it's about your favourite character with your favourite food. It can be your own character or one on T.V. so it sounds pretty fun, right?
Please take a look, there are some awesome peeps here
note: Faving this journal might help with your exposure but it's solely up to your fellow deviants ~
It takes me a while to put these together and it's a bit of a tedious process, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys!
Hymn to the SeaI just learned that one of my favorite composers in the movies, James Horner, just died in a plane crash.Hymn to the Sea8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am deeply saddened for he was one of the greatest. His music was so beautiful and touching in all of his films: Avatar, Titanic, An American Tail, The Land Before Time, Bicentennial Man, Alien, The Terminator, Field of Dreams, Braveheart, and oh so many more.
I shall listen to his music and try not to cry, but it would be quite difficult since most of his music always made me so misty eyed before.
Farewell, Jame Horner. Heaven will now be a more beautiful place with your music being played up there.

Something about talentI've always disliked the term "talented".Something about talent9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It implies that things come to you naturally and without any effort, while in reality the people that are considered extremely talented rarely get to the top without any practice. And the 'rarely' is an understatement. I've never seen anyone reach the top without effort. Not ever. I dislike how 'not having talent' is often used as an excuse for not being good at something, while in reality the only real reason that keeps people from accomplishing things is not working hard enough for it. And sure, not working hard enough can have its reasons. Very valid reasons like having different priority's in life, not having enough time next to your school, job or family life, or even battling an illness. It doesn't change the fact that you're capable of doing it.
I always tend to compare art (or any craft in that matter) with running a marathon. Anyone that's not severely handicapped could run a marathon, but it takes a lot of dedication

Can't believe 2015 is coming to an end already! It's been a busy year and I regret not being as active as I was in 2014. However, I was able to create an artbook which has always been a goal since I started. Thank you everyone so much for your support! <3
My biggest goal for 2016 is to draw a lot more, and try more challenging things. I'll be attending some big US cons such as Anime Expo and Anime Boston next year so it's going to be exciting meeting new and different people. I hope that I get to see some of my watchers there!
What are your plans and goals for next year??
Being happy with your artI've noticed lately, that there's this emotion that leaves people overwhelmed with the massive amount of good art in the community, thinking that they can never become as good or popular as those others. So sad, because skill or popularity in itself shouldn't be the major goal of an art community. I think many people who start out here get so overwhelmed that they forget what it's actually about.Being happy with your art2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Many people out here, sign up to DeviantArt (or any internet art community) in order to publish their work on the internet. They've probably looked around for a while already. They saw those amazing artists that had millions of pageviews, and secretly hoped that by putting their art on the internet, they would be able to do the same. To become madly popular -- a community icon.
Well, sorry to burst your bubble; but it's probably not gonna happen. And if it's gonna happen; it's not going to be soon.
