Some may love you,
Some may hate you,
And some may make you,
And do better.
Trolls will test you,
Haters will deject you,
But friends will support you,
When you fall,
When you rise,
And when you shine.
So through it all,
Through thick and thin,
Through heartache and adversity,
Never ignore who you are,
Never lose sight of who you want to be,
And never forget those who helped you along the way,
Become a better you.
Thanks for the support everyone
Thank your watchers for their support. Thank your group members for their contributions. Thank your watchees for producing beautiful works. There's a lot of thanks to go around especially in light of the last journal's little incident.
Spread the love (it's almost Valentine's Day )

Crazy FairiesNo, it's not a code name for everyone who works at Spicy Horse (although it may be able to fit...). Instead, it's a new game coming out on mobile/social networking platforms from the studio that brought you Alice: Madness Returns.Crazy Fairies2 years ago in Personal More Like This
American McGee (him of id Software and Alice fame) has announced that his fairytale social game teased last week is called Crazy Fairies - and will be a turn-based artillery title reminiscent of Worms. He's also got a dark and twisted mobile verison of Red Riding Hood in the pipeline - and isn't planning to peddle his wares on home consoles "out of the gate."
Speaking to PlayerAttack at GDC, McGee confirmed the name as well as stating that it will be based on "a multitude of fairy tale stories from around the world." Crazy Fairies promises to be an "advanced casual" 2D artillery affair, using the fairytale setting as art direction cues as well as weapon inspiration.

Zivot je cudna sorta biljkice...Cudna sorta biljkice (biljkicus cudnovikus) je biljka iz porodice zalutalih biljaka,koja svojim pogubljenim rastom otezava svoju konzumaciju,cesto dostizuci do ekstremne odbojnosti,pa je neki cak i s namerom cupaju iz korena. Stvorena je da jebeno zbuni svakog ko ima srecu da je poseduje,bezuspesno pokusavajuci da skonta njenu svrhu i postojanje.Zivot je cudna sorta biljkice...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

ScareLAHey creeps!ScareLA5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks for the great responses to my fairytale plight! It's great to see that we share many of the same favorites. And the titles I hadn't heard of were all amazing.
Now, I'm new to the convention scene, because I'm normally locked in my tower of solitude, scribbling furiously and playing with spiders, but I've been invited to Los Angeles for the ScareLa Halloween convention in August. It's short notice, but they were so nice I thought I'd give it a shot.
Last time I was in Los Angeles I got to meet tons of you, and everyone was really fabulous. So ScareLA sounded like something I'd be into. Lots of fun creeps will be there, like Dread Central, Rob Zombie, Kreepsville, Fangoria, and that freak who made "Paranormal Activity." That's just a couple of them, but there will be artists, workshops, panels, basically every haunted attraction within 100 miles of LA, lots of fun Halloween things, you get the idea. Sounds like fun to me!
Cleaning out my dressersMy laundry machine is fixed (of course! With a baby about you can't go more than a few days without one) So anyway I decided to go through all my overstuffed drawers and clear out my wardrobe.Cleaning out my dressers7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I guess what seems right to wear in your early twenties compared to your late twenties is different, especially after becoming a mother and all. My appearance is almost the same as before I had my baby but somehow I just looked at the clothes and felt like I am never, ever going to wear those again. All I want is clothes that can all go with each other so I don't have to spend time thinking about what I wear (and stuff that hides my still flabby middle!!!)
Well, when I get those clothes all out of the house it means I can pick up a few new things for the summer! Looking forward to that.
I've got some kind of baby meet-up to go to tomorrow, supposedly they are going to give us some advice and an opportunity to meet other mothers. I can be so shy sometimes, I don't kno

International Women's Day: Female Focused Vector What is International Women's Day?International Women's Day: Female Focused Vector2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The following has been quoted from the InternationalWomensDay.com:
"International Women's Day has been observed since in the early 1900's, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.
The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal shift in both women's and society's thoughts about women's equality and emancipation. Many from a younger generation feel that 'all the battles have been won for women' while many feminists from the 1970's know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women's visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think
Authentic CitizenshipOnce Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level. You suddenly find yourself magically reaching that special deviantART "destination" that is a connection point of art, life, community and communication that has no specific Office # designation.

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

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 whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh

"The Autumnal Equinox" by Aty S Behsam
Michael Sullivan, as the prologue of the book implies, is no ordinary teenager. He has 'outsmarted' the enemies whom, after reading the first chapter it becomes clear, he doesn't even know. He's living a normal life, and feels proud to be the boy who had the courage to ask Anahita out; a girl who is beautiful but her natural beauty seems to be overshadowed by the 'fake' girls in high school. Anahita has secrets. And she is an excellent liar too; a skill she knows she has, even if it's a bad thing. But the question is when we lie for the sake of someone we love,

I hope everyone is getting excited about Halloween! I know I am... but there's also a lot going on here.
Mr. Cain and I have bought an old house in a city an hour from where we are now, and it's going to take a lot of time and energy and funds to fix it up. It was built in 1900, and it's lovely, but needs lots of work. And stuff. Like blackout curtains to keep the sun away. So, to keep our strength up, we require blood donations from mortals of at least a pint each, or a mason jar of lightning. Either will suffice.
Or, you can buy my prints. There is free worldwide shipping through Sunday, too!
I mean, if you're into that kind of thing. Normally, I'd open commissions under these circumstances, but, you know, I'll be busy sacrificing neighborhood pets to bless the new house and junk.
Also, I'm not sure if anyone will be interested, but I'm going to be sifting through my mountains of linework and sketches from my artwork, and
