Contest is to design me a super awesome original character for my birthday. It doesn't matter what it is: wolf, cat, human, pizza, ANYTHING. It just has to look unique and like no character you've seen before.
Contest is completely based off of design, not art skill, so don't feel intimidated! Also, if you need me to, I can draw you a base of an animal or person if you don't feel comfortable drawing it or you can use other people's bases.
Draw/color/manipulate a picture and link it to me.
Make a short back story about your character design or explain where you got your inspiration from.
Make a journal entry advertising my contest (You can delete it after the contest is over, please not before.) <3

Help stop animal cruelty by changing your icon into this lulzy dancing business cat! :iconyuumei: For each changed icon, Topicality will donate 50 cents to the ASPCA! For more info on how to participate to get your changed icon counted, please go to http://news.deviantart.com/article/156966/
I'm already signed up with a $20 monthly donation plan with the ASPCA that will last foreeeeveeeeeer but I understand not everyone can afford to donate $20 per month so changing your icon is a simple way to donate 50 cents, and once your changed icon is counted (they will reply to your comment on their journal) you can change it back to your old icon (or keep the glorious dancing kitty for all of eternity!) 50 cents may not seem like much, but when everyone does it, it can add to be a lot and make a huge difference!

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 RevieThis movie is good and there's really not much I can say beyond that. The effects were great, the acting was great, and the storyline was cohesive and had emotional impacts at all the right moments. I didn't cry when Dobby or Dumbledore died, but I certainly came close to crying at least 2-3 times during this film. I have't read the books in a long time, but they got every key moment I remember and fairly accurate to how I remember it being too. There was a lot of "fanservice" as well, and the audience I was with broke out with applause whenever one of those key moments they'd been waiting to hear or see happen happened.Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Revie4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will say that I am kinda annoyed at the people who either watch it and then complain it didn't have "their favorite parts" or feel that the movie "butchers the book" or whatever. Books to movies aren't a 1 to 1 thing. You have to do certain things with movies that you can't do with books and vice versa. I just wanna get it on the record that I felt they did a fantast
Les Mis Wrap-UpIt's been a week since my beloved show closed.Les Mis Wrap-Up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can legitimately say that this experience has changed my life. And what an honor to have been included in something so much bigger than myself. It was truly astounding. What a story to tell. Les Misérables. What. A. Story. Glorious.
You know what's strange, is that I didn't come to a complete realization that by being in this show, I was fulfilling a dream. It wasn't until right before my closing show that it really hit me. My director gave a killer speech, heartfelt and sentimental. Wonderful and brilliant. Then near the end, he said, "I hope you all realize that by being part of this show, you're making dreams come true. There are some people in this cast that are getting the chance to play their dream roles. Their dream roles. And that's because of you. So thank you." And when I thought about it, I started to tear up. Eponine. Eponine was ver

say it to my face and not on the internet-a rantI would like to just clear a few things up for anyone.say it to my face and not on the internet-a rant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you see something about my art that you think I can improve on please feel free to tell me! I try my best to take critiques to heart and really listen to any advice I've been given. However there are a few things you have to remember, and not just about me. But about any artist.
An artist is always improving.
Don't assume that someone isn't trying to be better, more varied, or more original. Even if you can't tell that they're attempting to do so, it's better to offer advice on how to improve these qualities rather than figuring that they don't put any work into it in the first place. This can really hurt someone especially when they are, indeed making an effort to do so.
For me personally, and while it may not be very obvious, I do try to vary my character designs, body types, facial features. ect. Unfortunately I'm not very good at it. It's a lot more difficult with me when it comes to male anatomy especially because I'

You are always welcome to draw something for Katie, but I'm no longer offering art back. She is better now.
Please consider ing this journal if you support it; it may get more exposure, which would give Katie more art.
...So, as my scrap-watchers know, my little sister Katie is sick. (I mentioned it here for those who wanted to leave her a comment.)
Well, her cough worsened and today she is in the hospital with Dad. Her fever hit 105 degrees Fahrenheit, but it is lower now and she is getting the best care that they can give her. It's pneumonia again, and she'll probably be in the hospital for several days before she can come home.
Among other things, she took her Kindle Fire with her, so she has internet access—i.e., I can e-mail her a link to this journal.
Edit: Katie's internet access at the hospital is not very great, so she will be seeing all these pictures when she arrives home! Dad believ
