Life AnewLife has a unique way of waking us up. I had gone through some of the roughest patches in the last several years. Going through a large depression, a growing cynicism towards everything and an overall dislike of life. I had then grown very apathetic and distant to everything. This period of having become desensitized, leaving me weak and vulnerable. I then grew uncaring but very guarded.Life Anew1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I then have a change to my life. This change causing me to return to who I truly am...The 'Me' I missed. The happy 'Me'.
I can't say that many times has life picked me up like this before. Even if this change alters its course and leaves me, I know that I will remain forever bettered by its presence.
I am back into my books and back on my guitar. New material shall be expected in due time.

But this won't be a negative sounding journal though. :iconsuccessplz:
I won't go into detail with all the problems that are going on in real life; everyone's got problems in some form. But, there comes a point where you can't ignore whats happening around you and not ask for help when it's really needed.
You guys can help me out and, as a matter of fact, it's not like you haven't been helping me already. The money I've earned from commissions has helped in ways you wouldn't understand. And even more so, all of your comments about my work on this site are incredibly uplifting and keep me in good spirits (if you're wondering why I make it a point to try and answer as many comments as I can, this is a big reason why. I just appreciate them all so much!) The response I get for my work is so overwhelmingly positive that I'm literally baffled to point of head-scratchi
Sort of a SurpriseSo last week when I was bored out of my mind with nothing to do, I decided to go over to my aunt's place and see what she was doing, and just to spend some time with her since she's one of the relatives in my family I took a great deal of liking to. Every time I visit her, I always learn something new whether it's about family, technology, possible conspiracies, anything. This time it involved family. This time...it involved art. Now I knew my aunt was an artist, and I knew two other cousins were artist as well. But she then clued me in on exactly how many more people in my family drew art or took on art in some way. Pretty much, a good portion of my family are involved with drawing art, and I had no idea. And not just on paper, digitally as well.Sort of a Surprise1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now that was just one part of the surprise. The next part was how much they understood with art, and how much their knowledge and specifics relate to some of the artist I know here on DA. Here I done told my aunt how there's no possible way f
The Time of FarewellJust to begin, no this is not a journal about me leaving DA or anything like that. The title will become significant in a minute to what I'm really gonna mention. And one more thing. No matter what is said in this journal, it doesn't affect anything or any art form here on DA that I like. You see...for a long time I've been constantly thinking of whether I was interested in something as much as I was a long time ago. And now my thoughts and feelings on this matter are absolute. I'm not having any second thoughts, and when I move on it will be certain that I won't turn and look back. I'll stop beating around the bush and just get straight to it......I no longer have a love for anime. My mojo is gone, and it's not coming back. And I'm not even forcing it away either. I'm just....I'm just not into anime anymore.The Time of Farewell1 year ago in Personal More Like This

I'm not sure when I'll be posting any art soon because my senior year just started and I have a ton of assignments to do because of AP classes. But I will eventually post something.
Btw if you're reading this, I would like to say thank you very much for being a loyal watcher. I had thought that I'd lose most of you guys because I have been gone for almost a year! I am very grateful of you all, this gives me motivation to come back to the art community.

Just putting it out there (now with typical edit)...that at nobody in particular, regardless, it becomes ridiculously obvious when you use other artist's ideas or concepts in your art without crediting them. On top of obvious, it upsets a lot of people and offends the original artist/s a lot, which means that even if you think it's going to gain you more recognition and/or popularity, you'll just become known for the exact opposite thing: unoriginality.Just putting it out there (now with typical edit)6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know who in their right mind would actually enjoy having this sort of reputation thrown onto them over their constant ability to magically inherit or imitate different artist's characters or concepts, but it will not and does not make you respectable as an artist nor a person. If you're aiming to become known on here let alone a respectable artist, you should have the natural ability to be inspired without ripping others off.
Inspiration is one thing, blatantly taking someone's hour's, day's, week's, whatever's worth of work and basically redrawing it into your own badly rippe
Why I love the moonRight after my friends, anime, manga, and games, the next thing I really adore is the moon. It's not that I'm an astrology nerd or anything... I've just always found it very calming when I was little. Once I got older (and had more time to ponder random things rather than playing) I realized another reason why I love the moon.Why I love the moon11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm a really quiet existence...I don't really stand out much...more like, people don't notice when I'm there or not... :/ It's a gross feeling. So one night when I was having some trouble sleeping, I just sat by my windowsill and looked at the moon and realized...the moon doesn't give off it's own light either. The reason that we even see the moon there is because it reflects light from the sun. It can never emit light on it's own...I'm sure that's not something that people think about everyday...but it's true.
In that sense, it sorta gives me hope, you know? I may not be able to shine or be noticed on my own, but maybe...if I surround myself with wonderful p

So I finally made the decision: I'm going to start taking art seriously again.
I'm still going to have my fun with things, sure, but I plan to start devoting my energy into excelling!
I'm going to stop being lazy with all this stuff, I'm going to make my DA look nice, I'm going to make my art portfolio worthy... I'm going to make the end result WORTH the long time gaps between uploads! XD
I have a few things already in progress I'm just going get finished, but after I wrap these up [the commissions, a few entries, and a few concept works], it's going to be time to see what I can really accomplish.
No more half-ass! D:

Hey guys! Today I had my wisdom teeth removed...so I won't be drawing for awhile...I'm really sorry for the inconvenience.
It hurts so much!!! Aiyy.
I'll be back up and drawing soon though don't worry! I'll be stuck in the house soon so that's all I'll have to do anyway. XD Thanks for the patience!
A Few Words on Stealing
I know none of you have done this, but I wanted to touch on the topic of stealing. Recently people have been using my work or claiming it to be theirs. Claiming my work is your work is not okay. Even just posting it in their gallery is considered stealing, or "claiming" to me.
If any of you see someone using my art please let me know. A few of you have been kind enough to alert me when they've seen it happen. So thank you!
Another note. A fellow deviant just yesterday took a commissioned piece I did,
(this one: )
And traced over it to create a "new" character.

First off, for those who collect vector files for re-use or otherwise, several high res character vectors from my latest comic "Foalhood Comfort" will be made available for download soon. Twilight Sparkle in frames #2 and #7 are a given, but would anyone like to see character vectors from other frames as well? let me know in the comments.
