Normally I wouldn't make a Journal for something so small and insignificant as this, but really, this is something I haven't done in a very long time! I simply can't even remember the last time...
I have done nothing productive all day.
Truly, this has been my laziest day in many months-- perhaps in over a YEAR.
I slept in till 2:00 in the afternoon, called up my buddy Matt, we got coffee, played Mario Kart 8, and watched "Top 10" videos on WatchMojo for five hours straight.
That's it. No drawing, no work, and the mess we made in the living room is still there. Today was spectacularly useless. I needed this day.
I'm sure lots of you guys have similar stories of exceptional laziness to share!

STOP! RAFFLE TIME!RAFFLE TIMESTOP! RAFFLE TIME!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It has occurred to me that I have never done a raffle before. And I kinda wanna do one. This raffle is going to be very small and very simple. That's just how it's gonna work. There's not much you have to do, but there are some pretty easy rules to follow.
You must be watching me. Whether a new watcher or an old watcher, I don't care. No tears.
You must favorite this journal. I don't care if you unfav it after the raffle is over. But you have to fav it the first time.
You must have at least three deviations in your gallery. I'm not giving them to you just because. I want you to deserve them.
You must favorite this journal by Sept. 19th, 2013 or you will not be included in the raffle.
Now that we have the rules established, let's move onto the raffle prizes. They are very small, as I stated earlier. (Maybe I'll do a bigger one another time.)
Paint Tool Sai Speech Bubbles TutorialFirst you need a new line art layer and to use the vector tools provided. Use the curve tool and edit tool to create your speech bubble shapes.Paint Tool Sai Speech Bubbles Tutorial2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Below in red is where to find the line art layer. Click it to create a new line art or Vector Layer.
On the new line art layer, click four points in a rought squared egg shape like below in the large red square. Use the curve tool to make this shape. The curve tool is marked in a little red box to the left of the image below.
Now select the edit tool. Then from the middle of each point, click and hold then drag outwards to create a new point and deform your shape into a rough circle. You may need to change between your edit options to edit the shape. Translate should be fine to do most of the shaping.
Then you can use the curve tool to ad the speech bubble tail. That's all there is to making speech bubbles in sai. Of course you can draw

Reminder about Maternity Leave! + PortCon!This weekend I will be 36 weeks pregnant!Reminder about Maternity Leave! + PortCon!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you not pregnancy literate, this means that sometime between this weekend and next, my baby will be pretty much fully developed. Though we want her to stay in there for a few more weeks and cook up really well, she does have the potential to arrive just about anytime now.
In the first few weeks, I expect to be pretty scarce on DA and online in general. For those of you interested in updates on baby's arrival, I recommend checking my personal twitter account which I will likely update soon after she gets here (assuming all goes well and I am able to do so). Probably don't want to follow that account unless you're REALLY interested in Sailor Moon, just sayin' But I do have a stock account on twitter, too which is less personal stuff and more just stock updates.
While I am away, I hope to have a few friends checkin

HOW DO YOU HANDLE "ARTIST'S BLOCK?"We've all heard of "Writer's Block." What about artists? There are times when you just can't seem to get a drawing right. What can you do about it? Well, some people will counsel you to take your mind off of work, do some exercise, or go for a walk along the beach. Yeah, right, like getting sand in my shoes is going to put me in a better mood. And besides, if that worked, there would beHOW DO YOU HANDLE "ARTIST'S BLOCK?"3 years ago in Personal More Like This
throngs of frustrated cartoonists wandering the beach in search of ideas.
And as if the self-imposed pressure isn't enough, there are usually deadlines looming! So I do exactly what they tell you not to do when you're stuck, and it works for me: I keep drawing over and over and over again, until I get it right. I may try a different approach, or a new pose, but aside from dashing into the kitchen for a refill on my bathtub-sized cup of black coffee, I keep my you-know-what in my chair at my drawing desk and plow forward. I figure that the Gods-Of-Frustration, who are having fun toying with my brain, wil

I took care of buisness, did what I had to do, and now i am return. It's been so long that I don't even know if I can draw anymore. For the last few months i've been deeply involved in the gamergate scandal/movement/internet war thing. Yes, it's still going on 5 months later, which may as well be centuries in internet time. It's been exhausting and pointless. The whole thing is more or less about SJWs fighting against people who want better "ethics in gaming journalism". In other words, something stupid. I don't even play video games.
I quit a few days ago when I realized what a massive waste of time it'd been. This last week was spent tying up loose ends, saying goodbyes and burning bridges. I spent three months trying to get them to actually do something that mattered, but the entire movement completely collapsed in on itself and turned into an even less effective version of Occupy Wall Street.

TIP OF THE DAY: SIGNING YOUR WORKArt Tip of the Day -- Signing Your Work:TIP OF THE DAY: SIGNING YOUR WORK1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Is there a right or wrong way to sign your work? No - however, there are ways that are more professional, and ways that are less.
What you want is to use your signature in order for people to be able to see your credit - NOT as a way to copyright or claim ownership of your work. If you are already receiving printed credit for your work, for example, as a byline for a magazine article, then it's unnecessary. Some publishers will want it off the art, because it interferes with the image. So never put a signature in a place where it overlaps the art and cannot be removed.
If you do want your signature on your work, this is NOT the same signature which you sign your financial documents with. That would be a mistake, from a Identity theft standpoint. Also, your signature should reflect your brand. it's part of your look. Most of all, however, it needs to be small, but completely legible, and in an unobtrusive part of the drawing - but not too f

Pacing art slower- health and school :pIt's about time I do.Pacing art slower- health and school :p2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been mulling over this for a while and I really need a 'break' of sorts.
I really can't stand both physically and mentally to continue working at the pace I do, so I've been meaning to relax a bit more.
It's a lot of things but I really don't want to rant! :/
I just need to pace things slower, but I promise I'll get everything done! ^-^
Main issues are my lower back and school plus extracurricular activities. Mainly my back :/
So I won't lie, this'll take a few months I'm guessing to really get back in shape, sorry guys~!
But ah, for real this time, I think you all might've noticed the decrease in submissions as well as Saturday breaks. This will continue for a while!
StorylineThis journal covers the story of World Train: the context/time period the roleplay group takes place in along with important events that have lead up to the current situation, and the origins and backstory of the Train.Storyline1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It is 2048.
So much, and yet so little, has changed in the modern world. On the outside, Earth hasn’t changed much, but the internal cogworks that run humans’ system of living and being have been replaced and tweaked as a reflection of groundbreaking events that have shaken society to its core.
The first of important revelations was the creation of the first teleportation device.
Soon, as this new science was developed, refined, and re-refined countless times so that teleportation devices were installed in all major cities around the world. And by 2037, foreign reverse engineering allowed teleportation devices to be purchased and used by the modern consumer as a replacement for cars.

CHARACTERS NEEDED!So i am currently working on a new flash game which is going to be the biggest and most ambitious project of mine to date. The idea is to have a playable character that has to explore a large building populated with unique and eccentric individuals (Think 'Day of the Tentacle' and 'Maniac Mansion'). There is obviously much more to the story but that is irrelevant at this point. Each NPC the player comes across will have the ability to initiate multi-choice conversation. The aim is a multi-layered experience where the player can discover the personalities of all the characters in the game.CHARACTERS NEEDED!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
At the moment i am in the very early stages (mainly level design and story writing), and i have come to realize; I am useless at creating original characters. SO; this is a call to anyone who would like to see their character (reworked in my style) in this game. Provide a link in this journal to a character of yours, with a brief description of their persona and background..

Fluttershy's Tearful Plea For HelpFluttershy's Tearful Plea For Help3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fluttershy is crying. Why? Because she just listened to a heartbreaking story of a very talented person here on dA. The story of Sahtori-Kamaya (Karine Coenen) has been going around the fandom for a while now and some or most of you have probably heard about Karine before. For those of you who don’t know, Karine is very ill with cancer and she will be dead before next summer.
Fluttershy sends out this plea to all who care enough to listen to Karine’s story. Listen to Karine’s new video below and take to heart the message that the Sahtori-Kamaya has for all of us.
Karine Coenen mentions in one of her DeviantArt journals how, despite universal healthcare in Belgium, her insurer seems to be able to legally withhold treatment for her just because she is behind on her payments. Even employers reject her because of her disease, and she can’t expect any help from
