To start..So the last few days i have been talking to everybody about my transition buisnessTo start.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
what their thoughts and opinions were, since so many people ask me questions and send me notes on here i feel i should talk about this subject again. I do plan on documenting it over another site, maby youtube or tumblr... i don't really know yet.
I really don't want to do it over Deviantart though because i feel that this isn't the place for it, this is just for posting my artwork. Though I will be officially starting T in the next couple months and starting my treatment.
Now my feelings on this subject are;
I don't really feel like i need to draw the attention of the world to this, truthfully i wish i could just do this and no one would know. But the questions and intrest of other people is why i'm posting this journal. I want to help people with my experiences in anyway i can, So when i have everything set up i will post a link to my updates for anyone intrested in asking me questions or t
A rant-ish thing.So while looking on one of my watchers pages I saw a comment that kind of upset me and I felt a little trolled.A rant-ish thing.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some one had brought up this watcher being a fan of my bby, :iconshark-bites: and they asked if they knew of me.. the person replied :
" yeah i know 'kodee' dont think thats her name as shes never said it before i dont think... but any who XD yes i like hers too c: "
Really...? My name IS Kodee.
My full first name is Kodee-Lee. It says so on my birth cirtificate, my ID, my school cards and my mail. That is my name.
And if you don't think it is my name, then ASK me.. dont go commenting about me somewhere else. :iconnomemeplz:
I commented back to the person, saying it was my name.. and please adress me as a male.
YES, I AM AWARE THAT I AM NOT PHYSICALLY MALE.
I DO KNOW THIS.
MY TITS ARE A GIVE AWAY.
I PROMISE, I AM AWARE.
I am FtM transgender. And I don't dress the part of a boy as much because I am not openly discussing this with my paren
Humans..This journal will be deleted eventually- I have no real purpose for it.Humans..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Their emotions are interesting to witness.
I'm amazed by the way humans lash out at one another.
How they can be such gentle creatures, then the next minute, blood thirsty beasts.
I'm attracted to them.
Like a scientist to lab rats.
I like to watch.
Humans can make strong relationships over time,
But none of them are forgiving or understanding enough,
To work hard and push through together,
While those relationships they made turn into a war over night.
To me this is nothing but a Comedy.
Humans can act like such children, even if they are old.
Everyone is always right.
Yet everyone is always wrong?
I truely do believe that humans are strange beings, and I'll never fully understand why they do the things they do.
Does anyone else think the way I do?

Exploring Art 44: BrainstormSo. I have the flu. The great thing about being sick is that you're stuck in place for so long, that your brain kind of roams like crazy. If you're not used to that, well it can be a really surreal experience. But the way my thoughts have been jumping all over the place put me in the mind of a question someone asked me a while back.Exploring Art 44: Brainstorm2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"How do you get your ideas". That's usually followed by talk of being in a rut, stumped, not really sure what think of, etc. I spent the past week giving ideas to people (and if I didn't get to your question in a comment, they get lost SUPER easy as I have 717 if them to reply to right now. So message me on a note) and it confused my friend. She watched me go 'one sec need to post some ideas' and then type for a few minutes before bouncing over to go and help her with her project. It was a foreign concept to her, that ideas are a dime a dozen, and that to me is not a state we should be in as artists. Do you guys remember my Ideas painting? I posted it after
Don't be afraidAll your life people are going to knock you down. They're going to call you names, they're going to drag you down into the mud. And unfortunately, you are part of that mob of faceless people who'll drag you down as well. You'll look in the mirror and say "I'm not good enough". You'll work real hard and it just won't be enough. You'll be different from everyone else and wonder "What's wrong with me."Don't be afraid1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you're lucky, you'll get really good at something. Really great at it. People will compliment you and you'll swell with pride... and then be told "Don't be arrogant". "Don't be too cocky" for showing pride in your accomplishments. If you're a woman and you KNOW something is right, and you stand up for your opinions, well... you'll be called opinionated. Bossy. You'll be knocked down, the legs kicked out from under you to bring you back down to the level of everyone else.
And then you'll start apologizing. You'll start being ashamed of the things you were proud of. You'll start prefacing

Exploring Art 50: Food for thought.Been at the doctor this week. A few hours of boredom meant that I did math. For fun.Exploring Art 50: Food for thought.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't have a point to this, just some numbers I'd like to put out there in the universe.
Minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.
Full time work is 40 hours a week.
A full time worker on min wage makes $290 a week or roughly $1160 a month.
Suppose an artist makes prints and sells them for $10 a piece. In order to make $1160 a month, they will need to sell roughly 4 prints per day ($40 a day), or 29 per week ($290 a week), or approximately 116 prints a month.
With 12 months in the year, an artist would need to sell 1392 prints per year.
Now. If the artist is getting those prints for free, that would be okay. But let's assume that the artist didn't want to mark up very much, and so let's say the prints cost $5 each to make (just for the sake of easy math, that's including packaging, matting, and the print itself. That's not a real number, I just want something that breaks into percentages easily). That means 50%

OMEGA SKETCH Archer
Agent Sterling Archer, codename Duchess, is known from Bangkok to Berlin as the world’s most dangerous spy.
Archer is an animated TV series on FX, which focuses primarily on its titular character and his co-workers — operatives at an agency known as ISIS. The show was created by Adam Reed, who’s known for his work on Adult Swim shows like Sealab 2021 and Frisky Dingo.

Really irritated by part of the community here :/Okay, it's been few years since I was ranting on DA but the time has come. Everyone has a pet peeve and mine is being told that "this looks like". I very often state that I use no refs for the faces and if I did, and certainly if it was somebody famous (as it would be very obvious, right?), I would write it in the comment. But no. Still many people assume it just has to be a portrait of someone, often someone I'm not even familiar with, just because this is their first impression. And yes, I get it they (mostly) don't mean anything bad. But to me, and you can call it overreacting, it feels like I'm being accused of art theft every single time it happens. Even if I know this is ridiculous (like when people accuse me of stealing my own art from myself, not checking their sources beforehand and, believe me, it happens quite often).Really irritated by part of the community here :/3 years ago in Personal More Like This

The tragedy of owning a motorcycle is that it sometimes must be “driven” instead of “ridden.” One must occasionally “drive” one’s bike to the store for a loaf of bread or to execute some other mundane activity unworthy of being a “motorcycle rider.” One is meant to ride, not drive, a bike—as it were a contentious beast forever being tamed. A bike should not be just a vehicle for the conveyance of bodies and materials. Riding should be transformative. A rider becomes one with the natural world being riven in twain by the wake of his bike’s passing. A rider becomes a living metaphor. A rid

I don't know if you guys are still into your resolutions - but I'm still trying to achieve mine . Here's just a few of mine (I made like 25 so I keep myself productive. If I finish 3 I'd be happy ).
1. Read 5+ books this year. When I was younger, I used to read 30+ books a year. It's a shame I don't have that kind of time anymore, so I'm shooting for a mere 5 . (1/5 so far)
2. Do something creative every day. Photography/painting/graphic design work. - Still working on this one, but it's improved. I've gotten it to about 4/7 days a week now .
3. Stop drinking soda. - Haven't gotten around to this one yet since I started working nights on a regular basis for the past month+
How are you guys' resolutions coming along?
I do these every so often because I don't have time to individually thank everyone anymore AND if I were to thank you, instead of sp

As to continue my ritual, After every twilight movie, I always post a review. Yes, I'm still continuing it. Luckily, there isn't any fan girling to make my review biased but only respect. So yeah.
* Well first off, the first parts of the movie, were awkward. Maybe it's just KStew and Rpattz that makes the whole scene awkward which may have answered my question as to why it feels quite different from the book. Although I DO appreciated the fact that they put in "Bella's lullaby" as a soundtrack in the movie. I'm quite fond of that song actually.
* Next. and this is probably the most painful of all. Why is there no Tanya lovin'. WHY. WHY. They didn't even show how nervous Bella was in meeting Tanya. Tanya practically had a history with E

So recently I realized how much stuff I use that is tested on animals. Or most of them don't say if they do or don't, so I just assume they do.
Skin and beauty care particularly.
To me testing these things on animals is cruel, some people may disagree but I find it unsettling to know I might be using something that has been forced onto another animal.
It's something I'm guilty of being ignorant too, I didn't even start checking labels until recently
So I've been looking for and testing out home remedies that I can use to replace these products as well as animal safe brands for the things I can't replace.
So far I've been trying/using;
A coconut milk and cucumber cleanser
Diluted lemon juice as a toner
Avocado as a moisturizer x3
Olive oil to moisturize my hands, feet and nails
and just tried an olive oil treatment for my hair
There are heaps of things you can use, thought they sound extreme or weird, who cares! At least no harm will come to me or any animals whi
