I quit my job.I had to. Being stuck in retail hell for years was getting to me. There's only so many times you can deal with disrespectful self-entitled customers daily, especially when you have personal goals and aspirations that have nothing to do with retail or the success of the business you're working so hard for. (with little acknowledgement.) It's not that I never put my heart into my job -- I even made some great friends there. It's just, when you see so many of your other friends, even family members doing seriously cool things with their talents... it eats at you like you're staring at your own death-clock.I quit my job.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I haven't been one to take risks in the past, so the thought of cutting off my only source of income wasn't exactly on the forefront of my thoughts. But, I was given an opportunity with a soon-to-be startup studio that a bunch of friends of mine are already apart of. I came on board this project earlier this year, but only slightly part-time. On my days off from my retail job, I would p

Winning Tiger BloodThe Yin to my Yang. Part of the work, is forming a team i can trust to do the work as well, if not better than i can do on my own. right now, i've been fortunate enough to be joined by a seasoned yet open project producer. managing people has never been my strongest area, and on my own, i'd tried and would either go too far or too short. a lot of the unorganized things so far in the development has been organized thanks to this guy.Winning Tiger Blood3 months ago in Personal More Like This
things are getting tighter. I'm no longer the only one working on my project. this makes me so happy that i can finally see my dream forming. then to have people i look up to speak of me in such a great way, i am much more pumped. this life of mine..... i believe i'm living the life i need to in order to be a great person, a strong woman, and an amazing artist.
i see things happening and i can only appreciate the view. the future's so bright, i gotta wear shades.

136: Bowing Out.Hi, everyone.136: Bowing Out.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm basically going to keep this as short as I can, as there is no real point dragging this out to be some sort of grandiose fancy-to do or whatever; Basically I have a few announcements, and I'm going to be keeping these as simple as possible:
First, SONIC SOUNDSPEED is no more. Due to the amount of pressure and work that I'd already put into it to get it published, as well as the unnecessary pressure people put on me on a daily basis here on deviantART, I have simply lost interest in making a Sonic fancomic, and have subsequently have stopped creating and writing for it. As it stands, 300 pages of it exists, but to avoid it becoming needlessly glorified or used as a reference or signpost to anything fandom-related whatsoever, it will never be published online.
Secondly, I'm winding down on the Sonic Fanart, and the gallery will be changing accordingly to reflect this. This is just a choice that was inevitable. It's not that I've grown out of it, but it's come to a point
No Time...For ANYTHING.That's my life now. I barely find time to text my boyfriend for crying out loud. He's a real trooper through this whole experience. My sister and I are so close to finishing this year of animation school we can almost taste it. We're working our tails off to complete our films along with the rest of our exhausted class.No Time...For ANYTHING.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's aggravating when you realize how classical animation is almost a dying trade. It's even more frustrating when the teachers remind you so often. Sure it thrives in television and internet media. But in terms of film or cinema it's practically toast. I'm not saying that to be a jerk, they really do TELL us that!
I don't mind too much but it's just one of those things that tugs at the back of your mind while remembering just how much you paid for this course. All the while you're convincing yourself that this wasn't a waste and you really WERE meant to be there. But who's to say?
I'm too busy pre-occupying myself with what I'm able to do now. I've officially learned h

and you're shitting bricks trying to digest that information.
and your teacher emails you with a syllabus that spells out ass rape.
i suddenly feel cold and queezy.
trying to eat an apple.
i can feel it coming back up, inching its way up my esophagus.
i think one of the reason's i'm afraid of my teachers in one class in particular is bc they're all male.
i feel like my face is going to get slammed into a table.
art is the only thing that soothes me.
back to that place where ppl want to force me to do something i don't want to do.
back to that place where i get shoved up against a wall.
back to that place where people prize looks and status above integrity.
back to a place where a lot of people think friendship is using others like they're napkins.
this apple tastes bad in my mouth...
art is my one true sanity.
i do not cry. i do not scream.
i only bleed through the colors of my pictures.

Left some milk by the window. Hopefully, they'll both be gone by the time I return...
So how is everyone doing?
I'm good, just busy with work stuff. A number of people have asked me about the comic I was to release. Well, that has been put on hold, sorry. I'll start on it once the projects I'm working on are complete.
The kiriban is still on. Just send me a screenshot of 99,999 and/or 100,000 views and I'll draw something for ya!
I've also been asked about commissions. Will open those up after the kiriban, so look out for that journal.
I really hope that cat doesn't trash my place. It had this mean look in it's eye, you know?
New Game + Short Film!Hello everyone! Two small projects I've been working on have just been released this week: a minimalist game and a short animated film. Please have a look!New Game + Short Film!2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Game: One Bullet
A Ludum Dare Jam game by *Pix3M, Potentialing, and myself. Our main programmer had to withdraw at the last minute, so I ended up taking his role. We made this from the ground up in 72 hours, with the theme of "minimalism".
Film: Beneath the Night Sea
A short animated film about a young mermaid searching for warmth. Created by Matthew Cangelosi for DigiPen, with music by me. Prior to this project, Matt and I teamed up for the atmospheric game One Curious Nightfall, which has a similar feel and theme.

I Can'tTalk About Art or God Here ever again...This is just outrageous!!I Can'tTalk About Art or God Here ever again...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm so over this.
I shared my opinions and the backlash was just completely outrageous! I'm attacked when I speak lovingly about God, I'm attacked when I talk about being pro-love and how I support homosexuals etc and NOW...I'm being attacked for having an opinion about art. Art is meant to be discussed and interpreted and I wanted to share an opinion that has been on my mind for years and one that has been the burden of many artists I know.
The digital age scares a lot of traditional artists, not just me! I was never bashing anyone and I expressed that I support MANY digital artists and believe that digital artists are talented. I expressed that I'm not okay with seeing traditional artists working so hard to create a background that a digital artist can create simply by applying a texture someone on DA uploaded It's not fair...and it scares me to find paintings that resemble traditional paintings because it reminds me how much the world i

Gonna get this Thesis done!Hey my little deerlings!Gonna get this Thesis done!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just updating my status. I want you guys just to know that I really want this bachelor's thesis done NOW! So I'll be taking some day's off of DA. Don't worry. I'll be loging in every now and then but don't be alarmed if I don't answer notes or messages daily like I usually do. (this is mostly for the people I RP with)
But I am happy to say that this thesis is doing nicely. It still needs at least ten pages but I am positive I can get it done. And it is quite fun... It's not everyday you need to play video games for research (My thesis is about simulation games on facebook and how to make graphics for a facebook game).
Next... I'll be writing a part about Animal Crossing in it. (writing about simulation games in general.)
