The Inherent Degeneracy of GamergateIn a world where unarmed, innocent people are murdered freely by authority figures, slavery is at an all-time high, someone opens fire on an American school almost every month and people die from inadequate, needlessly overpriced health care, some people think the biggest and most upsetting issue in our society is about video game opinions.The Inherent Degeneracy of Gamergate10 months ago in Personal More Like This
And, unfortunately, these people create a serious issue. Despite the fact that they rally around a fundamentally trivial and pointless cause, their furious and aimless harassment of others has become something worth talking about.
If you ask a Gamergater, they'll tell you that their fight is over "dishonesty in journalism." That's a pretty big fight. Journalistic bias has convinced Americans that climate change might not even be happening, that minorities commit more crime than whites and that we actually have any reason to be dropping bombs on the Middle East. Mainstream media is a clusterfuck of biases and sensationali-wait, what's that? Ga

I can't say everything I want to, in order to express how important not only my following as an artist has become, but how you've all helped inspire me to follow my dreams to the utmost extent. Over the past fifteen years, and since I originally found Deviantart, this site has helped platform me into the artist I am today. I also created and showcased my IP, LMS: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, through Deviantart.
I hope this blog post does justice in telling that story, and how important it is to follow your dreams and passion. And while I haven't been as active online, I can promise I have been behind the scenes.
Thank you for believing in my dream, and again, enjoy the read.

The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)Howdy friends,The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There has been an exciting development!
A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ http://www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers). When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality. I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.
I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.
In the meantime, I'm posting up the pages of The Statement of Randolph Carter (for beginning readers) I was working on when the word came through from Ch

Details on the Cassandra Cain Black Bat outfitDon't mind this journal entry, I'm mainly typing this up to reference to when I upload some good photo's after Fan Expo on Saturday.Details on the Cassandra Cain Black Bat outfit3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My main references for Cass' Black Bat were from Red Robin 25 http://static.tumblr.com/yl0t4fw/j7Om0cetj/red_robin_25.jpg (Can we just have more stories of Cass and Tim working together please? You know... if DC ever actually BRINGS CASS BACK?) and Gates of Gotham.
I'm planning to do Cass' Batgirl outfit as well (I'm so excited!), but my sewing skills are really lacking, and so I wanted to practice by sewing Black Bat first (easier, in my opinion).
So here are some details on the costume:
I've actually been trying to grow my hair out, since I've always had it at shoulder length or shorter, so I decided against cutting my hair for this.
Also, I prefer using wigs whenever I cosplay.
I pretty much just bought a simple black wig, and cut and styled it.
At the moment, I have to restyle it, as I'm unsatisfied with how it looks. :/

TransgenderSo ... yeah ... Finally ... Im here writting this <3Transgender2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, I will explain a little all this .. whole process and how many times had thought of doing this ...
Before I birth, my father always wanted a boy in the family .. (at the end we were 3 girls) I been the first to born, so...my father had insisted on treating me like a boy, football ... cars ... I think the only Barbies I had were for my grandmother, even that I never got to play with them a while. Finally I grew up with these hobbies, especially football, and my behavior wasn't very feminine, in fact, I always was called "tomboy" and I ignored them...yes, I was in my "yupi" world you know x'D... and later it wasn't only football.. basketball too. I wasn't very good at school x'D
The fact is that at age 14, I lost my "father". Since I was little I was always very close to my grandparents and i live in his house since then, my parents and I have never been so close, my grandparents are my "parents" .. and .. when I lost

Why Paint Missing Children?A little girl I knew was abducted.Why Paint Missing Children?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was very affected emotionally, and when I looked around my home town in the following days, I finally noticed all of the little fliers asking for help finding missing children. ( In America there are 1,500 missing child cases open every day. The fliers are often printed on the backs of coupons and are distributed as junk-mail.)
I just began saving the fliers, and after a year had a drawer full of them: Disposable mailers with tiny monochrome photos of missing children. It didn't seem right that these faces were so small and bland.
One night, out of nowhere, I was inspired to paint a full color portrait from one of the cards. As an artist, the question was this: How does a person paint a portrait of a missing child? I could not just approach it like an illustration. I could not just go about it as if it were a polite painting.
I began by putting away my brushes. They were too smooth. Too pretty. Too controllable. Instead, I began using palette knives

OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS -Finally open for commissions -OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS -4 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, let's talk business - Please read the following information carefully. Everything you will need to know can be found here:
First things first - If you're looking for a drawing to be done within a week-2 weeks, that's not likely to happen! I am always busy, always working on something. I approach each creation as a personal one, putting all my heart and effort into it, and that takes time. That is also why most of you might think that I charge too much, but I'm not one to sell myself short and I can guarantee you the best, highest quality result from a passionate artist that will make every bit of your money worth.
As I mentioned above I draw almost anything but there a few things I will not draw - Anything that might be conceived as racism. Any display of pre-teen characters in any sexual or sensual form! There will be no displays of an extreme hardcore pornography, no violence display for the purpose of killing another person, no politics, and no ant

Awesome Pic of the DayAwesome Pic of the DayAwesome Pic of the Day2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every once in awhile, I come across a picture that takes my breath away. My DeviantART page has been kinda bland recently, so I thought it would be cool to dedicate a section of it to feature these awesome pics. You'll find it under a section called Awesome Pic of the Day. It's much easier and quicker to post these, and I'll try to keep it updated daily or as close to it as I can get. If you think it's a good idea, let me know, and I'll keep it around. I'll archive the history of pictures in this journal entry.
