Groudon's Flame is BACKAt last, Groudon's Flame Oekaki is back up and running, just as before! Thanks for your patience!Groudon's Flame is BACK1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Many have informed me already, and you may have noticed yourself that the Groudon's Flame Oekaki board isn't working. Probably should have explained a few days ago, but eh, better late than never... right?
Anyway, the domain has expired. A family friend hosts the websites on his business' server and normally it's renewed no problem. I guess this year they forgot to renew it, which has happened in previous years. I didn't want to be pushy because they host the oekaki for free, but now that it's gotten to be a few days, I know it's causing a bit of an issue with some members. I just started college and I've been kept ultra busy, so I just kept forgetting to contact them again, but I'm going to keep working on it, and hopefully GFO will be back up and running within the next few days. The most i
Perspective and moving forward...The last couple of weeks have been something of an emotional rollercoaster, by which I at least mean there were as many "ups" as there were "downs". I don't talk about where I'm at on an emotional level online much, so bear with me, this is kinda new for all of us. I've had a hard time answering posts about the halt of the Planes of Eldlor webcomic... most were quite supportive, and I thank you for that. Many people said it seemed sudden. It seems strange to me, who felt it coming for a long time.Perspective and moving forward...1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
I wasn't burned out, not exactly. The decision actually came after I'd spent a solid 9 hours inking a pair of pages. See, I'm... a bit of a workaholic - to put it mildly. I have a bad habit of driving myself crazy on a project while simultaneously never feeling quite like I've done enough. I felt bad if I took a day off. I had to set a timer so I would stop working and relax and spend time with my husband, play some games, or work on personal projects. Looking ahead, there
Son of the Philosopher Audiobook Audition - CLOSEDAUDITIONS ARE NOW OVER! Cast pending...Son of the Philosopher Audiobook Audition - CLOSED1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Wassup? My name is Moon and I will be producing an audio book of :iconemkh:'s comic series Son of the Philosopher.
Some of you may already know me for the audio book of :iconSkailla:'s comic Over the Mountains and Far Away. Well, I'm doing this one, too!
So, let's get down to business. Chelsea and I will be in charge of casting, but if you have questions about the audio book, I'm the one you need to talk to.
There will be multiple rounds of auditions since we're casting as we go - meaning as new characters appear, we'll cast them. For this round: Elian, Rollo, Tancred, Reed, Asclepius, Sydney, Barlo, and the human. Next round will be Luke, Chartres, Mercury/Quicksilver.

First of all I apologise for my long absence from deviantArt, but I had my reasons. I've been to Hamburg for the weekend to visit my grandcousin who had invited me to her birthday and we had a whale of a time. And on Monday I had an application at the HTK, which is an institute for art and design, and I showed them some of my works. They weren't too excited about my drawings but they really admired my sculptures and in the end I was approved. I'm not entirely sure yet if I really want to visit that school but then again I have no idea what else I should do so what the bell. So yeah, just wanted to let you know that chances I'll end up living under a bridge eating newspapers are at least a little lower now.
That aside I hope that now I'll find the time to make some more art for you guys...if you want, of course. I already uploaded a little comic to make up for the lack of uploads lately, but I still have di
Wacom Cintiq Users and StereotypesWarning: this is a topic I feel very strongly about, but would like to open it up for discussion. I would like to post it as news, but I feel that it may stir unwarranted opinions from individuals.Wacom Cintiq Users and Stereotypes1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
I own a Cintiq and I'm not an amazing artist.
There we go, we got that out in the open. So, first things first, some people are unaware of the stereotypes of a Cintiq artist. So I'll explain the few I have come across and then explain my own story and reaction to these claims.
"You own a Cintiq - you must be so rich!"
This is one I get the most. You must be rich because you own an expensive piece of equipment.
More often than not people who own Cintiqs have either saved or were gifted them. However, some people are rich enough to afford them easier, and that is their business whether they choose to spend their own money on such items.
I saved for five years, after I saw the original 21UX in the first copy of ImagineFX in 2006. S

But here we are, and it only took one year :3
I kinda feel like thanking everyone again but it'd be kinda redundant after the huge thanks list I made for my 1st dAnniversary XD (which btw can be found here [link])
I know I always say this, but really, thank you, it really means a lot to me, you people are the definition of awesomeness for me.
...SO, to celebrate this HUGE milestone and to show all of you, once again, now grateful I am, I'm gonna livestream and do a bunch if icon requests (YES FREE STUFF OMG OMG OMG OMG) (also I totally didnt come up with the idea thanks to =Magickie...hurr hurr)
But yeah, basically, instead of holding a raffle like I always do when hitting these 'watchers milestones', I'm gonna take requests live!

Reading Nai AleiI don't tend to like voicing opinion because they really don't matter or make any different to anyone else. However sometimes I do let it slip out of curiosity for other people's views. This journal is a compilation of those moments.Reading Nai Alei1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hidden comments are there because this journal was used before for something else ^^
How to read Nai-Alei
During my short time away I believe I have realised what my problem is so I want to get this all typed out and posted BEFORE I chicken out.
I suppose don't think myself worthly of the vast amounts of praise I have been given by the people of this site, people always say I'm a really nice person without really knowing me deeper than me saying "Thank you" <3. As I'm sure alot of you will understand non of us are perfect. Perfection is an illusion.
I now think that the reason I cannot find happiness on here is purely due to my painintheass personality ^^ So today I'm gonna lay my cards on the table and hopefully

Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day Aug.1stThis Wednesday (August 1st) is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day! For those of you who haven't heard the news lately, Chick-fil-A is a Christian fastfood company in the United States that is based on Biblical values. They have been very successful and make a yummy chicken sandwich. Recently the CEO made a statement about the Biblical definition of marriage and as a result has become involved in a "Culture War". For more details here is a link to a news article I read this morning: http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Latest-News-Wires/2012/0727/Chick-fil-A-Culture-war-in-a-chicken-sandwich-videoChick-fil-A Appreciation Day Aug.1st1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As Christians it is important for us to support companies that have enough back bone to stand up for their Christian beliefs. As the CEO said himself, having the freedom to believe what we want is what makes America so great.
For those who support Chick-fil-A's stance on Biblical standards, this Wednesday is the day to show your support by eating at one of their r

DebateI just watched the 2012 decision presidential debate tonight. In my personal opinion, Romney blew Obama away...Debate1 year ago in Personal More Like This
He was straight and to the point, he always answered the question. Obama seemed to only go off topic or copy what Romney said and pick on him and assume what he was saying.
Also, I don't believe Obama has done anything that really helped our economy... there are still many people without homes or jobs and suffering. All the things Obama has promised such as lowering taxes or prices on gas, taxes and prices on gas and food have only raised not lowered.
So I don't trust Obama...
I liked Romney's basic idea of giving more freedom to the people and less power to the government. Keeping taxes on big business because they're doing just fine in this economy and lowering taxes on middle to poor classes to give them more money to spend and get jobs. But most of all I liked his idea of sticking to the constitution for what America was based on in the first place.
I'm an independent per

Digital art and Roman bowsTechnically a Wednesday journal entry, but meh. I've been working on my second digital pic for the last few hours so I still count this as TuesdayDigital art and Roman bows1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not much to add to last week's announcing of me having a tablet, I've just been playing around with it and am about used to drawing on something I'm not looking at. It's just the features of digital art software that'll take more time to get used to.
Since I can now do digital art, I now have something to Livestream, so keep an eye out for random journals saying if I'm thinking of starting a stream. All it takes is one person commenting on the journal and I'll start one
What else to add? I went to a roman reinactment and now want to buy one of the bows they used. problem is, I can figure out how it's spelt
The Request ExperimentGoing to try a little experiment, here. It might not work, but you never know until you try!The Request Experiment1 year ago in Personal Journal More Like This
I'm now open for requests... with some caveats.
This is for my deviantArt watchers only.
You suggest a subject, but I choose the medium. It might be anything from a sketch to a full digital painting, speedpainting practice, or maybe something completely different. Artistic freedom FTW.
I own the copyright to the final art and retain the right to post it online and to sell it if I so desire. (I won't sell anything that features your own distinctly original characters (OCs), or works based on intellectual properties I don't own. See the Q/A thing below for further details.)
I am comfortable with tasteful nudity and romantic scenes. Mild violence is fine. I decide what constitutes "tasteful" and "mild".
You can suggest multiple ideas, but I'll only do one per person at this time. So be careful what you ask for.
Suggesting something does not guarantee that I will make art of it! Pl
