OFFICIALLY MOVED IN !AFTER A 9 MONTH CLOSING PROCESS....OFFICIALLY MOVED IN !3 years ago in Personal More Like This
WE CLOSED ON MY NEW HOME ON NOVEMBER 15TH! :iconfinallyplz:
I just spent the past weekend getting everything in and partially unpacked.
I'll be ready to go on comics here shortly.
To give a quick overview of the situation i was faced with for the last 6 months, :icontomitakeflash: and I have been living out of a suitcase under the roof of friends. It's been very taxing on us. Essentially being homeless for 6 months put a BIG slow down on my productivity here on DA. It put a HUGE strain on Brad and my relationship and pushed our friend's nerves to the brink. Now that all is said and done, I feel we are stronger people for having to work through this. I now have a newly renovated 4 level, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, finished basement, beautifully landscaped slice of heaven to call my own.
No more apartment neighbors,
No more wasting money on rent,
It's the perfect place for Brad and I to make our own, and grow our lives.
SPEAKING OF GROW
Imaginary Blood Doesn't Stain.I watch my life crumble around me ,Imaginary Blood Doesn't Stain.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
and I'm powerless.
You hurt me over and over ,
and I'm paralyzed.
You do what ever you want ,
and I'm incorporeal.
You prove to me everyday that my life is worthless.
Which is funny because to you my life is nonexistent ,
just like me.
Well you'll be happy to know :
My screams wont make a sound
My tears wont make you wet
Imaginary blood doesn't stain.

who don't like the main characters of something.
people who HATE the main character for no reason other than THEY'RE THE MAIN CHARACTER.
I MEAN IT'S GREAT IF YOU LOVE ANY OF THE OTHER CHARACTERS BECAUSE OF WHO THEY ARE, THAT'S ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM AT ALL.
BUT IF YOU JUST
HATE THE MAIN ONES
JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE "HOGGING THE SPOTLIGHT" OR "TOO MAINSTREAM" WHATEVER THE FUCK
GET HOW YOUR MIND WORKS.
IF THEY HAVE A GOOD STORY AND A LOVABLE PERSONALITY, WHY HATE THEM?
Really you guys?
Love what you love, but don't hate for no motherfucking reason.
I get poked at a lot because I tend to choose characters that get a lot of screen time- IS THAT SUCH A CRIME? REALLY? WHAT THE HELL GUYS.
OH LOOK AT ME I'M A FUCKING HIPSTER I HATE THIS CHARACTER BECAUSE THEY'RE LOVED BY TOO MANY OTHER PEOPLE. WHOOP-DEE-MOTHERFUCKING-DOO.
AND IF YOU DO ACTUALLY LOVE THE MAIN CHARACTER BUT YOU DON'T SHOW IT, GROW A FUCKING PAIR OF BALLS.

Like a Virgin.. Blocked for the very first time...Hello everyoneLike a Virgin.. Blocked for the very first time...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since my return to DA, I have been slowly catching up on devwatches, journals, favs, comments and that alone is keeping me a little busy on its own but get this: I discovered that I (finally) had the honor of being blocked for the very first time (that I know of, that is)
So I now know how it feels like
But you want to know why?
Because I Faved too much ...
Apparently, those who "fav too much" are suspicious of stealing images from the page and making money from them".. Oh-kay.
If I would block everyone who faved a lot I would be left friendless by now
I understand the paranoia and the natural reluctancy (which I myself am both guilty enough of) that coexisting with strangers from all over the globe brings, I mean this is the internet for petes sake. But to my belief: Faving is done to show support, to let them know you enjoy what they do. When did it become a "bad" thing?
Cold...I struggle to pull myself out of my chairCold...3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My bare feet brushing the carpeted floor
I look down at my feet; they're so cold
I drag myself to my small, cluttered bedroom
Fuzzy, warm slippers are pulled onto my feet
They cover the bottoms of my skinny jeans
I wiggle my freezing toes; they don't warm too well
I stop for a moment; my knee is locked again
Foot planted firmly on the floor
I force my joint back; I groan in pain when I feel it pop
My slippers drag across the floor
What am I doing? I ask myself
I don't answer
Wandering aimlessly around my small house
From one side to the other; back and forth
Occasionally walking into another room; just to see
I find my way back to my bedroom; it's rather cold in there
I wrap my blanket around my shivering body; will it even help?
Slowly walking back to my computer room; I want my laptop
I hear and feel my joints cracking and popping as I move
As I sit down in my chair I let out a groan; my back is killing me
I don't even open my laptop; there's
dumb thought of the dayevery now and then i get these stupid ideas.dumb thought of the day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
so here is the latest one...if gravity affects time, meaning stronger the gravity, more time is affected. and if the presumption is true that strong enough gravity can stop time..within a black hole
black hole has the mass of the collapsed star.... so... just before big bang we had all the cosmos compressed in a singular point with immeasurable mass, right?
that would mean that it is a ... sort of a non state point... a non event since time is in effective stasis.. space and time compressed in a singular point.
so an event has to transpire that was superior to all those 4 dimensions....
above time and space...
either this proves there is a God... or...doctor who is actually real!!!!!
yeah.... my mind is silly like that XD

Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!For some time now, I've been wanting to do a picture of Raven from the Teen Titan's episode "Birthmark". Somehow I've just not gotten to it. Well today I decided to fix that, and started looking for some screenshots from the show for research. And...ugh. Nearly every screenshot I found was worthless. Having no choice, I pulled out my Season 4 DVD of Teen Titans and decided to grab some shots myself. (I even photoshopped a few images that were camera panning shots to make one image) Since it was a process, and maybe others have had this same frustration, I decided to upload a few of my shots for everyone. Hope this helps out! Enjoy.Teen Titans: Birthmark Screenshots!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

They wait for your sleep.
They know when you're weak,
When you don't have control,
And they're waiting for you.
Don't close your eyes.
They're already there.
Every time that you blink,
You better hope they don't think
Don't let them know
When you're starting to grow
And beginning to bloom.
They'll find your old tomb
And they'll bury you down.
When you think they're all gone,
When you think they're away,
They'll pounce on your soul
As your trust is betrayed.
No Words NeededIt was Friday afternoon and the cave was eerily quiet.No Words Needed3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Practically no one was around. Conner, Megan, and Kaldur were off on a special off world mission, meaning the cave was currently empty.
All except for a certain speedster.
In one of the many restrooms present in the cave, Wally West was standing in front of a mirror staring at his own reflection.
Sad green eyes stared back at him as his gaze shifted to the large purple bruise that was currently forming on his right cheek. He gently ran his fingers over the purple spot and winced when he felt a familiar sense of pain flow through his body.
He looked up at his reflection once more as his grip on the sink tightened. His eyes began to water as he thought about the reason behind the bruise.
His dad had hit him.
Yeah, he had been pushed around before but never had his dad physically hit him.
It hurt to think about it.
Wally was too busy with his thoughts to notice that somebody else had entered the room. By the time he realized he was no

What do you think of people sharing their personal life on DA? Do you yourself treat it more as an art platform or do you also talk about your life and how you feel? Or do you keep that strictly to yourself? Also how do you feel when others you follow do or don't share stuff about themselves? What do you consider too much or too little, or do you even mind at all?
Personally... I like knowing a little bit about the people I follow, reminds me thy aren't just an icon/avatar and that they have a life too XD
I don't talk about my life on DA, other than cool stuff like wisdom tooth surgery XD but how I am feeling and drama I keep quiet because honestly I feel like my page is a place where

also pagecount is wrong, it is 140 pages
first issue is 10$
after that 15
for each issue. that on average brings you a series of fantasy graphic novels of 140 pages each.. later some even more..cough
value to eny comic reader is i think obvious, every 4 months you get one issue, that in pagecount equals over 6 standard 4$ issues that are usually done. my idea is a simple one. i dont want to drain people for the small floppy issues and have forced cliffhangers every 20 pages.
i want to make a true full blooded fantasy story, and for that, i need me a nice pagecount XD
but no worries, its loaded with dragons n stuff XD

En este año que tengo en esta nueva cuenta he tenido el honor de haberles inspirado confianza a varios usuarios y de que me haya escrito notas preguntándome como pueden mejorar su técnica de dibujo. sin embargo, al platicar más a fondo con ellos me he dado cuenta de que sus razones para mejorar se deben a que la gente los molesta aquí en DA diciéndoles que no saben dibujar, que mejor se dediquen a otra cosa acompañadas de un sin fin de groserías. Incluso he llegado a conocer gente que ha dejado DA precisamente por esto. ¿No es triste?. Artistas grandiosos, con mucho talento y ganas de aprender y superarse, t

A Nightmare I reach through the dark, fingers entwined in a silken ash.A Nightmare3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My dreams reaching only to the point past fire and destruction.
A rush of intense emotion yet when i grasp for other feeling they are for a moment then turn to ash.
One would say its a fool hardy dream, but it is more a growing resilience.
Reaching on the outskirts I see the landscape vanish on the edges of my mind. Sending waves of consious effort to stop what is coming.
Until that building ember derived from past creates rising smoke.
One moment passes then the next...
An emotional nightmare next until next... Try as i might the smoke covers the daylight overhead.
Until my neck and head are numb and dizziness stalks me as i try to catch my breath.
The sensation lasts then my head begins to throb as images are thrown to the forefront of my eyes.
As the bombarding images begin to increase i cannot move and will not as i become trapped.
Uttering over and over, "Im sorry"... Wanting to scream but unable to take the a
