Merry Christmas and a Happy New YearHello fellow friends, watchers and everyone else who stumbles upon this...Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today is the 4th Advent, in not even 6 (for some people 7) days is Christmas Eve. Because I won't be at home from Christmas until the 29th or even 30th of December I decided to put up a nice Feature of Christmas Art. Today I had my Mum, her boyfriend and his father over for dinner. We had fried trout filets, boiled potatoes and cucumber sald and a nice apple-vanilla-cinnamon junket as Dessert. I wanted to do something for them - they always support me so much and the father of my mum's boyfriend invites us for dinner so often and he just won't let me pay when we go to a restaurant. So yeah - this is the only chance I have to invite all of them for dinner...and it was so nice even though a lot of work - I guess I will do it again I think somewhere around next year - maybe in April before Easter Sunday or something like that...maybe earlier..I don't know yet ^^ I'm
Obistu FAQI was ridiculously shocked at how well Littlebit was recieved, but I suppose she is an anime doll and is supaa kawaiiiii~~~ But still, I was pretty damned surprised. 500 faves overnight? x.x I haven't had that kind of reception in yonks! And so many lovely comments! So thankyou!!Obistu FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I thought I'd link where I got her and some stuff about her kind. This focuses on the 21-23 bodies and the 11-23cm heads (these heads are all the same size).
-This is the best FAQ I have found, so read this before you read mine
-This is also a great video and contains a lot of information about Obitsu, and a cute review.

Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
BIG THANKSSeriously, you guys are the best--I just want to bear hug you all and somehow payback every unearned pennie.BIG THANKS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to let you know that I have more than I need now to take care of the major things-- I've sent a print to the artshow already and I should be able to go to the doctor by the end of next week. As strange as it sounds, please allow me to earn whatever else money I could use--I will still open up commissions and hopefully earn enough to make a trip to California for the Korra Artshow thats well into March (so I have a good amount of time, I just have to handle the work).
If it means anything at all, take all my thanks. Keep being the amazing people that you are; this includes those who shared their hard earned money with me as well as those who shared their words of support. I will brag about you guys to everyone I know lol, your support means so much, you have no idea. It just makes me want to work harder and do better and be better. The only wa

Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)Well I keep finding myself explaining various plot points or origins every time I post a new selkie picture and corresponding vague blurb, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a central place where you can read up on the story, if you like. The idea is that I'll update the story here when I upload a new illustration, and fill in major plot points which aren't getting covered in the picture, so check back if you're interested.Selkie: The Story. (no spoilers)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
BEFORE I START, I will answer once and for all this question: "Is this from Ondine/Secret of Roan Inish?" Not really, this story is as similar to either of those as they are to each other: they are all from the same mythology, but this series is about characters who do not exist in another selkie retelling. Here is some reading on basic selkie mythology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selkie

Captain America: The First Avenger Project Part 1Hey guys! As what I've mentioned in my previous journal entry, I've changed my course and will be pursuing my dream to create props, prop replicas, and various costumes.Captain America: The First Avenger Project Part 13 years ago in Personal More Like This
The biggest project I'm currently working on would be creating a life size display of Captain America's suit as seen in the 2011 film. Trying to get as close as I can to screen accuracy for this one. No room for cutting corners.
I won't be cosplaying Cap though.
Photo is from the Profiles in History auction
I fell in love with the design the moment I laid my eyes on it. I've come to appreciate the Captain America TFA costume on a whole new different level now that I've studied it very meticulously. I adore military clothing and fashion and upon closer inspection, almost all of the parts of the costume are in fact genuine army articles cobbled together in a different way to form Cap's uniform! I learned so much in watching the featurette on Blu-Ray. Amazing and very thoughtful design!
First up, here are photos of my
How to make money outside and inside DeviantArtThis is meant more for younger, newer deviants who have run into a spot of trouble making some extra cash,How to make money outside and inside DeviantArt5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I see many people posting how they make no money on their prints through DeviantArt.
To me, it just seems like all you need is a lesson in business.
First, before you do anything, realize what our "Target Audience" is.
Do you draw anime? Or do you take pictures of cute animals? Or are you into realism? Let's face it, you aren't going to find very many older people who enjoy fine art on the internet. Try and figure out what age group your work appeals to.
Second, use DeviantArt as your "Warehouse"
DeviantArt is great. You can showcase your products and then ship them to people without you doing anything. However it is an Art Community. In DeviantArt, you work is only shown to other artists, to get more money you have to use DeviantArt as your Warehouse. It will supply the customer, but you need to bring the customer to the site.
Deviantart is fairly appealing, but lets face it, man

I'm An Artist Now! YAY!Today was my last day at my full time job. I am now embarking on a new journey! I don't know for how long I will be able to "be an artist" but since it's always been a dream of mine, I am pretty excited about it! And it seems I have a lot to do! I guess now I just have to see how it goes.I'm An Artist Now! YAY!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Starting tomorrow I am going to be making art full time. I have updated my LiveStream journal to reflect my new schedule which will be every Monday through Friday from 11AM-7PM Eastern. I'll likely be working on things outside of that time frame, but I'm going to stream at least those hours every day as a way to make myself accountable.
As noted on that page, I will not be making new journal posts for those streams since they are scheduled. However, I will be posting notes on that page if I will not be there as planned, such as this Friday and Monday when I will be traveling to Tampa, FL to do my :dev

Our Charity, Redkite
In early March of 2011 my sister was diagnosed with Leukemia and admitted to the Royal Children's hospital in Melbourne for what would prove to a very long and painful journey. That year was the hardest year of my life, i can't even begin to imagine what she was going through but through all the pain our family had some relief, this relief came in the form of Redkite. When my sister was undergoing treatment my parents would take turns staying in hospital whilst i would be at home studying. It was very tough, my parents could barely work and whats worse all the materials for school where expensive and used up fast. The Social worker who represented RedKite at the RCH's name is Xuan, she helped us with everything. Not only financially but also with her big heart, i find it very hard to open up but when i felt like breaking down she was always

Respect on deviantARTWhat is Respect?Respect on deviantART2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Respect, in a nutshell, is "to show regard or consideration for." (per Dictionary.com)
You can show respect when arguing with or disagreeing with someone. It is simply giving another person consideration for their thoughts and opinions. While you may not always agree with everyone you meet, that doesn't mean you can simply trample over all of their thoughts and opinions without regard for their feelings, experiences, knowledge, etc. But it also doesn't mean you have to agree with them.
Take time out to BREATH before commenting on something. If it upsets you and you feel the need to curse at or belittle a person (or their work or rights), stop yourself and ask if you would feel okay if someone did the same to you. Chances are, if you wouldn't want to receive a comment or reply like that, you shouldn't leave it in the first place.
Man you guys rock!!!I wanted to thank everybody that stopped by for my recent Disney/Star War crossover post a few days ago. I was not expecting that post to get so much attention and it was very, very surprising. What was even more shocking was the Daily Deviation which left me kinda speechless.Man you guys rock!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The most common question that my message box has been flooded with is," Am I making more?"
The answer is ...YES!
I was going to move on to different projects despite having other crossover ideas. So due to demand, I'm currently working on the next one and there will hopefully be a few more.
So thanks for all the favs, watches, comments, llamas, and compliments!!! Stay frosty!
