KICKSTARTER, VERKAMI, INDIEGOGO....
This is an example of what I would like to do; Many of you have already read about it, and gave me your support. I'm telling it again.
I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING ON TO START A CROWDFUNDING
This is it. I want to start a crowdfunding project. I am looking for good printing and shipping prizes that offers me good quality. I'm waiting for an answer from a very cool guy I have meet who is going to help me.
I think that my crowdfunding project will be an artbook. But I don't want to stay just there. I mean, the most important thing is that I want to enjoy every page I fill. Every line I do and every color I choose.
If I don't feel I'm spending a good time doing this, I should not do it. And this kind of mentallity is what makes me want to do this. Spending a super good time, and have one of the better experiences in m

Quick $15-Commissions for charity + StampEDITQuick $15-Commissions for charity + Stamp3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm pretty beat. I guess two batches is enough. Thanks to all those who commissioned. The money has been donated accordingly.
Since I'm on a break today, I'm thinking of raising funds to donate to the flood victims from the recent typhoon that hit the southern Philippines a couple of days ago.
Therefore, I'll be accepting $15 quick full-body commissions (colored). I say "quick" because I wouldn't be showing anymore WIP previews anymore. Just give me a ref picture and I'll draw it.
It will look kinda like this (but more refined):
I'll just be opening 5 slots in the meantime. So note me if you're interested.
Edit: Okay, since I received more notes than expected, I'll reply to the first five notes first. Then I'll reply to the second batch when I'm finished. Thanks so much for the commission!

Friendbook - A Reference List (now on Tumblr)It seemed like a good idea at the time. :'DFriendbook - A Reference List (now on Tumblr)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Friendbook | NPCs | Regions
The friendbook images aren't the best quality--digital photos of my television screen, and its resolution is too much for the game's so they're kinda weird--but they should still be a step up from YouTube videos. And you'll find proper screenshots and fanart and stuff there, too.
Let me know if you want or need a better shot, or other angles of a character. Shots for regions, particularly communities, are still a work in progress. I make no promises on how soon I can get to them, but I shall do what I can, and I'll let you know when they're available. :3 (Right now, June 2013, I cannot get shots. I don't have access to the game. Hopefully it won't be long before I can again.)

Recently I posted deviation titles "Egill One-Hand" which is the title of the book I illustrated about Norse sagas. I'm not sure how would be most convenient to post pictures of the book to deviantart (it looks kinda silly to line them up in large blank file that takes forever to load), but for now I have photos and more illustrations in my Behance portfolio: http://www.behance.net/gallery/Egill-Yksikaetinen-illustrations/8751853

The Joy and Sorrow of going to the movies AloneThats a photo of me going to the movies by myself, and sometimes I just have to, especially for movies I that I really really wanted to watch without interuption from a friend (if you got friends who likes to talk to you during a movie, you need to get rid of them, if you ARE the friend who talks, you need to get rid of yourself). Then sometimes there are movies that I wanted to watch but no one around me wants to see it or has already seen it, so what you gota do? Just go to the movies by yourself! Its not that bad really, there's always a believe that its lonely to go to the movies by yourself, they say going to the movies should be done with friends or family or your boyfriend or girlfriend or llama. NO! Its perfectly fine to go to the movies by yourself, I mean you can take in every bit of the movie without any interruptions, then after the movie you won't feel the need to immediately give it a score and talk about it with your friend, I like to take an hour after theThe Joy and Sorrow of going to the movies Alone4 months ago in Personal More Like This

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 Gamergate5 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
Naughty little Ry gets spankedDespite the title being "Naughty little Ry gets spanked", in no way is this journal vulgar. Ok, so, when I was young, like many kids out there, there would be times when I misbehave and get punished by my parents. For some reason I think I remember every single one of them.. some of them more painful than others, one in particular hurt me the most.. emotionally.Naughty little Ry gets spanked8 months ago in Personal More Like This
So here's a picture of my mother spanking me in front of my friends. I guess my father took the photo, and back then we didn't have colored photos yet..? My mother really going all out with her hand right up in the air takin the maximum impact, but I don't think she knew what she was doing because I seem to have 7 layers of clothes on, I don't think it would've felt a thing! But anyway I digress.
Does spanking your child really help in bringing them up to be a better human being? Look at me for example, I am pretty sure I didn't change my behavior or tried to improve my grades after the punishment. I used to get terrible grades

My birthday was on Monday
Which was indeed a super splendid birthday and we did some fun stuff.
We also prepared for TODAY, where a plane was supposed to take us to Cyprus where we would got married and party for three days.
Bbbuuuuttt yesterday, right when we got out of the house for a birthday dinner with my family, our flight agent called and told us that, together with many other flights, our flight got postponed because of our country situation.
Me and Yoav are pretty much in this weird depression mode like you see in some mangas/animes…. you know that kind:
instead of getting married, we had to wake up in the morning with the lovely alarms going off and some Iron Dome explosions in the background.
What a bummer in the ass.
BUT THEN i come online to baaawww
and i see all the birthday wishes and birthday gifts around
XBONE sales double, Captain America is BlackXbox Sales Double, But for the Wrong ReasonsXBONE sales double, Captain America is Black10 months ago in Personal More Like This
It’s been reported that XboxOne sales have doubled since June 9th. You know what also happened June 9th? Kinect no longer being mandatory. I don’t often like to draw the “cause and effect” parallels, but this is too much of a coincidence to ignore. Also hilarious too, considering how adamant Microsoft was in keeping Kinect despite consumers telling them they don’t care anymore.
Sorry Microsoft and Xbox fans, but I can’t help but laugh at this piece of news.
The Falcon is the new Captain America
While Thor becoming a woman was loudly proclaimed, this news titbit seems to have slipped under the radar. The Falcon, Sam Wilson, will be taking over the role of Captain America after Steve Rogers loses his super strength. So, yup! New Black Captain America.
Like I mentioned before, while I don’t have a problem with shake ups like this, I do worry about their longevity. S
Aonuma Trolling , Ubisoft Lying, Skyrim ComicsAonuma TrollingAonuma Trolling , Ubisoft Lying, Skyrim Comics1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I should’ve updated my last journal right away when I found out that Aonuma was just trolling with the whole “was that really Link or not?” comment... On one side I’ve been getting inundated with people pointing out how “wrong” I was in the journal (despite the journal clearly coming out BEFORE he clarified his statement), and on the other side maintaining the concept that maybe it wasn’t Link has kept some fans a little TOO hopeful for the idea of a female Link or even that maybe it was him and Zelda’s daughter.
Sorry guys, but that actually WAS Link. I’m pretty disappointed in that, honestly, but I gotta try to be positive and not let this one set back discourage me. On the bright side so many people were “trending” about how much they’d love to see a female Link, that I think Nintendo finally took notice and realized it’s not just a deviant fan fantasy.
COMFORT MEEEEESo I'm laying here all cozy and ready for bed, and reading some H.P. Lovecraft stuff, and suddenly there's a flash of light and a HORRIBLE, deafening sound, of clearly some kind of STRONG electricity right outside my damned window. It goes on for what seems like forever, and I'm just terrified, thinking, my AC unit is being struck by lightning, what do I do? So it stops, and I see sparks and embers through the window, and the power goes out. And I'm terrified as shit, because, well, wtf just happened and also now I'm in the dark with a Lovecraft book. After a few seconds the power comes back on, and I meander downstairs trying not to completely panic, and I wake up my brother, and my mom's boyfriend comes up from the basement where he sleeps, and he tells me it was a transformer that blew up and everything's OK.COMFORT MEEEEE1 year ago in Personal More Like This

then you get curious, go to the complaining artists page for the lulz, then their art, scroll down and it says:
Dont copy, Dont reference, Dont recolor my art/character

Devious Journal EntryIf you believe "men's rights" are a legitimate movement, that men suffer any sort of oppression or discrimination comparable to that of women and that feminism does more harm than good or is some sort of evil anti-man movement, please don't fucking follow me, comment on anything I make, or message me because you're fucking garbage. The media hasn't emphasized hard enough that the "MRA" movement is the driving force behind Elliot Rodger. He didn't kill because he was "mentally ill," he killed because he felt entitled to sex and resented both women for not worshiping him and men for "stealing" women he believed were rightfully his.Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
That is the logical conclusion of the "men's rights" mantra. That is what it teaches people. Every single person who identifies as an anti-feminist men's activist contributes to the subculture that created him and was already responsible for innumerable cases of rape.
People with "mental disorders" are not actually more likely to commit crimes. At all. They ne
