The one thing that mattered..I have lost so much of myself up until now. I believe, when we experience pain, it will eventually leave us...but when it leaves, you're not the same person anymore.. I wonder why I miss the past although the present is 10 times brighter.. I admit, I've lost part of myself, but I'm reviving it now. That fear of "nothing matter" is disappearing...The one thing that mattered..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
because I know there is one thing that mattered 10 years ago.
...that childhood dream has always been on my mind, more than any contentment in this world.
and the the fact that I did't let go, is the reason for my strength.
Now that I'm alone, all I hear are the voices of people reminding me of the difficultly of this life ..and.. words of support from friends and fans.
and.. That one loud voice of my 12-year old self pushing me to keep it all up.
I should probably end this pathetic talk and go back to work.. but
I just want you to wait for me, the reason why I'm taking time, is because of the quality of my

Devious Journal EntryHey all!Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hope you're having a good December so far.
Life is busier than ever for me!
Here, have some news highlights!;
- I'm working on a new line of comics to be introduced soon. Woo!
- Most of my time is being spent learning how to use new software atm, this includes Maya, Flash, Illustrator, Toon Boom Studio, Premiere Pro, After Effects...and many more...It's tough.
- My new Dell XPS (that cost £1500) is absolutely shizzle...Everything is just...broken. So after many hours on the phone to Dell, they finally agreed to replace it. So that should be with me next week. (F*cking Dell , I should'a bought a Mac)
- Lots of animating going down. The faster I learn, the faster I'll be able to throw some cracking Animations out onto the web!
- I cracked, and bought a Vita, it's freaking beautiful! (now my xbox is giving me evil looks , and my DSi is crying in a corner)

A Little Something we all should hearFor the past few months I have been meeting with a family friend (an accountant) to help me with my taxes. Out of all the subjects to understand, finances are definitely way beyond the grasp of my brain, so I am very thankful to have someone so knowledgeable helping me with this foreign, scary, and unavoidable subject. It should not have come as a surprise, but at the end of this month, she told me I owe a lot of money. (Don't worry, I am not asking for donations) At first my heart just sank, yes I had the money, but it was pretty much most of my business savings. I was not feeling good about things.A Little Something we all should hear11 months ago in Personal More Like This
After mulling it over for a day, I realized I have nothing to be upset about, I am not in debt and I can certainly save more money as time goes by. It put everything in perspective for me. I did not begin making art for the money. Nobody born with the need to express themselves through art does it with intent to make a profit. They do it because it gives them life, because any futu

She hisses, she snarls, and she whispers, and she laughs. She's the prettiest of all, with evil mind, sweetly to prowl. Bony fingers of long sharp nails, her lovely hands were made to tear flesh. But fragile she is and one day she might break. Just a beautiful sinner now wasted away. Oh, such enchanting cadaver, dancing and dead.
And as she keeps dancing she starts pulling you down. Down into a dark place you alone would never have found. You shout, stupidly unbowed. But sadly at night, only silence is loud. And as her silhouette continues to skulk, twirling around, you finally understand. She's the master, a queen with no crown.
And although her heart is cold and her teeth are sharp, she once had be

All those firefighters and policemen and others who tried to help save people, you are amazing and you will always be remembered. You people are the ones we will remember the most... you tried the hardest to save complete strangers and that is amazing that you would do that. Especially since you risked your lives to save them... <3
To all those families who lost a loved one... I am so sorry! That is horrible and depressing. I wish we could go back to that day and warn everyone to get out of that building before everything took place. Your family and loved one will always be in my heart.

I DID A THING WITH MUSIC! TOP SONGS I KNOW:So I decided to do a study of myself to see what my top 10 songs are in my itunes library. It ended up being more like top 50 organized by categories of 10 since I like so many. So below is groups of what i like best etcetcetc. If you wish to duplicate my study, choose your top 50, but to simplify things, if you have any albums of a band you cannot choose ANY songs by that band to be in your list.

f#$k it! it's death vigil for EVERYONE!So i've been sitting here thinking...f#$k it! it's death vigil for EVERYONE!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
we live in the age of kickstarter and patreon....
people are supporting all sorts of projects...
NO! I'M NOT SETTING UP A KICKSTARTER OR PATREON!
i don't have the patience not the focus to handle all that... but it did get me thinking...
if teasers for projects can get people to fund it... what aout the full thing?
i don't do crowdfunding. i make comics.
i publish comics. if people love and buy my comics... i get to make more comics.
so with that in mind. i will post the entirety of death vigil here.
from there on it's in the hands of the readers. if you want to support the book being made, i will post the comixology links, and image digital links, as well as trade preorder links.
so if you feel this is your kind of comic, and it's something you want to see made in it'y entirety..and can afford to support it by buying it...thank you.
if not, i still hope you like it. so with no further a do... this week i will be uploading issues.

FarewellHello. I realize I have apologized my silence and disappearances to you several times over there years and yet here I am – apologizing once again. But this time I’m reaching out to you with a different message in my mind. I am writing to you to say goodbye.Farewell8 months ago in Personal More Like This
You have probably noticed I haven’t been active on this site for a long time. While I’ve made attempts to return, I’ve never seemed to succeed in my planned comeback. My failures come down to one simple reason: I am not painting anymore nor do I feel the need or calling to do so.
Perhaps some of my older friends and watchers find this announcement shocking. How come I have given up painting even though I have always been “the artist” and “the girl who draws”? Perhaps the answer lies in the question itself. As human beings living in the world of constant change we, too, are changing all the time. We don’t remain the same all our lives and we can’t keep ourselves from e
Oh hey, a new deviationI don't like having no new deviations in my gallery for over a year, but I haven't really had the drive to do any drawing lately. I had a bit of a drive a while back, but all that came out of it was that some of my half-finished pictures became 2/3rds-finished pictures. Rather, a lot of my drive lately has been in web development. Solution: write CSS that my fellow deviants can make use of. So I wrote the journal skin you're looking at now, called greenREMIX.Oh hey, a new deviation4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Oddly enough, I had no problems getting the pictures for this skin done. They were very simple pictures, so maybe I should stick to simple deviations? But I see my fellow artists drawing cute characters with lovely outfits, and I want to join them. Hum. Well, I'll figure out something.

Outlaw at the Bleeding Edge
of Independent Cinema
Movies featuring the latest in high tech digital effects, eye-popping CGI environments and ear-splitting surround sound, are often described as “pushing the envelope.” But they’re mega-million-dollar productions that are delivered back to the studios by the filmmakers precisely as pre-ordered. Rarely is there danger of disaster, so what envelope has been pushed?
“Envelope-shredder” might be a better designation for Brian Taylor...

Testing Tutorials - Baking Powder tecnique!I've been really curious about this tecnique shared by Shacchan - see this journal for the instructions - and finally today I've managed to give it a tryTesting Tutorials - Baking Powder tecnique!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was fun, althought a little messy. I just need to try some more to find the perfect dosages!
I mixed some light brown clay with about an half of water and an half of Fimo liquid, until I got a creamy thing (as Shacchan explained, it should look like a glaze). Then, I added the baking powder to the clay, proportion as shown, and mixed them:
I made a baking tin with an aluminium foil (I didn't have anything to wrap the aluminium around, that's why it looks so weird! ) and poured the clay in it (well, I poured it all over my worktop too! ). I baked for about 10 minutes.
This is what the clay looks like, after it's baked. Gotta admit it looks anything but good
The big moment! Seems like it worked - but I'm thinkin
