Love your parentsHi everyone (8Love your parents2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I just want to say, thank you all so much for your love and support and patience. The messages I have received over the past month have really kept my spirits up, and I appreciate every second you took, every key that was hit in being there for me. It means the world for me, so thank you.
Life has hit me and my family hard these last couple of weeks.
It was my birthday yesterday and I spent it watching over kids and doing the housekeeping. It was spent tending to my mother and watching as she tried to make it through the day. My mother got a surprise phone call. Just the day before, we found out my grandma had passed away.
I can't put into words the type of woman she was. Honestly, she was one of the most pure and beautiful beings. She was so full of patience and wisdom, and she lived a hard life, but she kept a smile on her face. The last couple of years especially, she's been back and forth to hospital, and it's been my mother that's had to do the

Percy Jackson News Updates :)EDIT: All of the new covers are in the journal attached now so I'm re-submitting this so you guys can see themPercy Jackson News Updates :)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So there have been a couple of big things that have come up in the Percy Jackson world and I figured that you guys would want to know so...
1. The Son of Sobek is getting a sequel! It's called The Staff of Serapis and it's about Annabeth and Sadie!
Read an excerpt here: http://rickriordan.com/Files/Documents/StaffofSerapis_excerpt_trade_pbk.pdf
2. The original 5 Percy Jackson books are getting new covers! One will be released every day this week!! They are all done by John Rocco (the same guy who did all of the original covers) so I don't think we have much to worry about.
I will update this journal daily with the new covers as they come out so that pictures can be included:
Let me know what you guys think!

Dust and CobwebsGood morning creeps!Dust and Cobwebs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've finally finished moving all of my strange antiques into the new house I'm sharing with Mr. Cain. We've painted, and installed all of our modern conveniences into this lovely circa 1900 house.
I've been waging war on the dust and cobwebs since moving, and the spiders... you would not believe. I found their mother lurking in the most frightening of all places... the hard-to-reach crevice behind the toilet. It was a horrific fight, she being about the size of my entire hand, but I've managed to purge the house.
The house itself is strange. It's not very big, but it's the biggest house I've ever lived in. It has mysterious tiny doors that don't open, a cupboard under the stairs, fireplaces in every room, and tall ceilings (which is good, because Mr. Cain has the proportions of Slender Man). I'm already imagining the kind of hobgoblins who lurk in the walls and the monsters in the attic because something has to be making those noises at night...
I'm looking forward
Don't ever tell me this! (or to any other artist.)I saw something like this pass me by on Facebook, with just the first 10 points.Don't ever tell me this! (or to any other artist.)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Together with some others we could name a lot more.
How about you? anything like this ever happened to you?
Things you shouldn't say to an artist.
1 Can you do the artwork for this job for free? It will be a good promotional piece for you. Get you some word to mouth advertising.
2 Mom Look! That painting is just like that picture you downloaded from the internet and got framed for the living room.
3 Wow. You charge THAT much? You make it look so easy.
4 If you don't make it so detailed... Just scribble something down... Can I get it cheaper?
5 If you use that piece you already got and change it a little, can I get it cheaper? You already have done most of it.
6 I can use a Photoshop filter to do that exact same thing.
7 You are lucky... you don't have to work, you just have to sit and paint all day.

Pottermore Site Update!! 11 Dec 201211 December 2012: A couple things on the Pottermore Site have been changed and updated:Pottermore Site Update!! 11 Dec 20122 years ago in Personal More Like This
- First off, every user has been given 100 Galleons to spend in Diagon Alley! Yeah!
- The Site now has a heading banner that provides quick links to the main Pottermore site, to the Shop and to the Insider.
- It's snowing in Diagon Alley!
- A new Badge has been made available to collect: "Book of Spells - Borrow Miranda Goshawks's Book of Spells from the Restricted Section."
- Lastly, the Insider has posted a little tidbit with teacups and tealeaves asking users what they see. Could this be a hint that Book 3 is on its way???
Noticed anything else? Sound off in the comments below!

A couple things have been brought to my attention while I've been surfing the web!
1. The last part of CoS will be launched "later this month."
2. The final locked tag on Pottermore will be a "games" hub.
Be A Dangerous Artist.Marcel Duchamp said that "Painting is a drug."Be A Dangerous Artist.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
His quote applies to photography as well. And digital art. And manga and anime. And thoughtless pornography. And writing.
It is all a drug that easily lulls its creators into detours of safety and simplicity.
Yet, the artists who have moved me on this site, (like you, perhaps?) are truly rich enough to push limits, take risks and allow themselves to articulate, (however eloquently or foolishly) their notions that art is MORE than a drug. When art is most powerful, it is far more than decoration, game-playing and diversion.
Art is a dangerous tool for expression, revolution, meditation and individuality.
Superficially, Art is like a canary used by coal miners. When the canary lives, the miners know that air still exists in the shaft. When the canary suddenly dies, then the miners know that the very air is about to be poisoned. Therefore I love all art. I am warmed by all creativity. But artists ought to be dangerous...

Thumbelina First Looks and Muddy Colors InterviewThumbelina First Looks and Muddy Colors Interview2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will be at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 2 later this week, and will be debuting the first paintings in my Thumbelina series.
Interview with Justin Gerard on Muddy Colors:
JG: So speaking of your work, you are currently working on a series of paintings based on Hans Christian Anderson's Thumbelina fairy tale. Can you tell us a bit more about that?
AS: I have wanted to do a series on this fairy tale for a while now. The reason I like Thumbelina has largely to do with the magic and mystery of childhood.
When we are young, the world is so big and magical and I think you lose some of that when you grow up. I like to imagine a place where everything is still a little unknown, and there is so much left to discover. Stories like Thumbelina
SpeechlessSeriously. The sheer horrifying nature of the internet has left me speechless for now.Speechless2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in a free country, where freedom of speech is an important matter. A long while ago, when I was still young and at school, we learned how to do a proper discussion in class. We were learned that provocation isn't that bad to get a message across, but that you should always have at least some respect for the people you discuss with, and talk with them with calmness and reason. If you lose your temper, you lose the argument. That's what I've learned.
The reactions I got on my last journal, however, have left met both sad and speechless. Because I'm unable to grasp how people can be so downright insulting towards a fellow human being. To a member of the same website....
My journal wasn't meant to tell people how much I hate fanartist. Because... I don't really hate them. I just feel sad about how hard it is to get attention for original work in the sea of fanart ou

Draw everyday. Not gonna lie, I have a bad habit of not drawing everyday. Some days you just don't want to draw, but when you skip a day, it's very easy to get into the habit of skipping another day and another day. Before you realize it you've skipped a whole week/month/year without doing anything productive. Sometimes when I look back I think wow has it really been that long since I've done something productive.
If you don't have an idea, don't worry about it. Focus on your basics. Perspective, anatomy, color theory ect. That way when you do have an idea of what you want to do you will have the tools you need to execute it.
When you're practicing you aren't obligated to show it to anyone. Studies and practices are for you and no one else. If it doesn't look good at first, keep drawing it until it does look good because it eventually will.
No one was good on their first attempt. nobody Everything comes with practice.

I want to thank all of my friends and watchers here on dA for creating and sharing wonderful art and for leaving such kind comments in my mailbox. I cannot thank all of you indivdually, but you are all very special.
I never ask for gifts anymore, but whenever someone asks what I would like for Christmas I ask for a kind act to someone else. So, if anyone is interested, here is what I propose:
I have spent a very long time "organizing" my favorites into various folders. The folders themselves aren't particularly orderly, but there are some fantastic works there. If you are like me, you probably browse the favorites folders of your friends and watchers looking for treasure! My wish is that if you have the time and inclination, look in one of my favorites folders. If you find a new artist whose

From now on submissions will be monitored. Due to some incidents of artwork that had nothing to do with The Hunger Games, we have taken measures. Any artwork irrevelent with the theme of the group, of very low quality, stills from the movie, memes etc will not be allowed. Be sure to submit to the right folder, because anything which is submitted in the wrong folder might not get allowed either. This means that you have not taken the time to think before submitting.
Also, the limit to submit is 3 deviations per week. The system will not allow you to submit more, so think and submit only your best of your work. If a person likes your work, they will probably take the time to check out your gallery anyway. There is no need to have 10 pieces of your work in a row to make an impression.
I am sure that this news will not be welcomed by everyone, bu

"While browsing through each chapter in the books, you will occasionally hear a clip from that chapter’s Harry Potter audiobook. It will automatically play when you enter a particular moment, and the clips we heard last around 10 – 30 seconds. The audiobook clips used are from Jim Dale’s reading, who narrated the books for United States readers. Stephen Fry was the United Kingdom Potter audiobook narrator.
Visit Chapter 14, Moment 2 (click here if you’re a member) to immediately experience one of the clips. This is as a great addition as it makes Pottermore feel like more of a book experience.
