10 yearsI just noticed, today is the 10 year anniversary of this Deviantart account. How disturbing and weird. If only I would have taken art seriously for all of those 10 years, but then I would be a completely different person. I haven't changed as much as most... but at least I'm not the same angsty teenager I was when I made this account. The younger me would have expected me to be married with kids and a mortgage by now. The current me expects that to be the case in the next 10 years. Hopefully future me doesn't mess that one up. At least I will count on my future self to be twice as good at art as I currently am... but let's aim for at least three times as good.10 years2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Wow, I can't believe I've been a part of deviantART for 7 years! You have all been very kind and wonderful to me, and I feel that it's time for me to give something back. So here's a small giveaway event! I had designed a tiny calendar and it's my sincere wish to mail one out to everyone, but I only have enough material to print 100 copies before the new year comes.
Oh, and here is the aforementioned calendar that may or may not be worth your trouble.
Again, I'm really sorry that my budget only allows for mailing to US addresses right now. I'll try to include everyone else the next time!

Self Harm Awareness day 1st March 2012Self Harm Awareness day 1st March 20123 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today marks an awareness day over a subject that can mean many things to many people. Self Harm (or Self Injury) is the act of physical damage to oneself, usually as a coping strategy for expressing deep distress or coping in difficult situations. Self harm commonly is associated with cutting, but can also refer to any physical damage to the self including burning, hitting, taking overdoses, swallowing chemicals, bleaching, hair pulling ( trichotilliomania), scratching and so forth.
You may know what it is, but it is often the reasons why that people are not familiar with. There is still this belief and stereotype surrounding the type of person likely to harming them-self, but the truth is, it could be anyone no matter what gender, culture or age. The reasons behind self harm can be such a huge variety- different people cope in different ways with different distresses. Such issues that may trigger self harm might be bullying, t

It's the end of times!Well.. kind of... we've been under attack by our local volcano since yesterday. We're all okay, just ashy and annoyed. It began pouring volcanic ash all over us last night, and it's still going after 26 hours. The worst of it was last night, the visibility went down to almost zero and everything was covered by a thick layer of ashes in a few minutes. There's some really spectacular photos going around.It's the end of times!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We woke up this morning under a layer of ashes that almost looked like snow. It kept falling through the whole day in smaller batches, and it was constantly lifted by every breeze so it's been on the air all day. The visibility was reduced to only a block or two, the sky was a yellowish gray all day and the light was the same color, it almost looked dirty. Volcanic ash is abrasive (it scratches surfaces), irritant to the eyes and nose, and slippery. The annoying thing got inside the house de

Character Design: An introductionCharacter Design: An introduction2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

But then Sebastian told me to shut up cuz it's also the day his parents were murdered...
So we celebrated by letting Ciel sleep in, Sebastian spending a lot of time with him in his bedroom while I was under direct orders to stay far away -blushes-, and just hanging out.
And it was so epic when we played Wii; when Sebastian finished creating his own personal mii, it landed in the courtyard, bowed, and then went over near the already-created Ciel mii. How perfect is that?!

Sweet SummerWhat Happened?Sweet Summer1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Believe it or not, yes I'm still here! Life has been really crazy the past year, and this is why I disappeared from DA. My life has changed so much, from bad to worse and then finally it started getting better and better. I am so at peace and so happy now. Best point of my life in years! And it's all because of God. When you are in serious trouble and have issues beyond your control, it's amazing what kind of miracles happen when you let go and let God intervene. When you lose it all, and have nothing left to cling to in this physical world - not your parents, not your awesome job, not your beloved money, not your fancy house, not your sweet ride, not your beautiful face, not your hot body, not your intelligence, not your connections, not your relationship with your love, not your degree, and not even your own human awesomeness - that's when you finally look up. Sometimes being totally broken is what it takes for us to come to God. My husband

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

The majority of time that I have to work on art, and the reason the pieces that you've seen past few months exist, is thanks to my babysitter. She comes once a week for few hours, and that's when I get to paint. Currently she's looking for another job, and therefore has more time, so I have an opportunity to have her for an extra day. I wanted to alleviate extra cost this would involve, so I thought I'd give it a shot and try to sell my art. Basically it would be an extra $100 per week, and I'd like to try it for a month, so I'm aiming for $400 here. If don't get to the goal, I may still get couple extra days or so. If I get over my goal, I'll be able to carry it over to the next month.
