Found my first digital pics everSo as I was bored to death today I just made some epic mess in my room by sorting through my very first dragon pics, and also found in my files my VERY first digital pics EVER 8D I decided to give ya a good laugh and show you these wonders: (I used Paint and shamelessly used backgrounds that I found in the computer xD)
This one was my very, VERY first digital pic I ever made, and it was made in 2006:
It also features one of my old characters which was the first one I ever designed, but was the second one to become an official OC of mine. Despite his cliché name (Draco) I still love him and draw him from time to time <3 It's the first time I ever show him to dA.
The second one which was made in 2006 too, I think even the same day as the first one:
This was another OC of mine, but his colours changed to yellow and orange a little later on. His head design was inspired by that "Dragons, a Fantasy made real" movie Lol look at that body.
Third one I ever made: Draco again, als

NaruSakuHas it really been 2 months since my last journal? ^^'NaruSaku3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As many of you probably saw, a lot of people are hurt over NaruSaku from the last chapter. All I have to say is that this feels too soon for any pairing to become canon. We still have a year and a half before the manga ends and every time Kishimoto brings more into a character, they die. Asuma and Kurenai, Jiraiya and Tsunade and then we also lost Neji when he was getting the spotlight. Does this mean Hinata will die? No. I am not Kishimoto. I don't know his plans. All I am saying is that this could end badly for Hinata. After all, she is right next to Naruto on the front lines. Obito wants Naruto to suffer and with that combined is making Hinata a big target at the moment. I still ship NaruSaku. It is still my current love but am I against NaruHina? No. I don't like the pairing but I am not opposed to Kishimoto doing what he wants. I loved NaruSaku when it wasn't canon and will continue.
I am not going to say NaruSaku will be cano
China trip post (photo heavy)Mm I don't know how to go about this in an organized manner, so this will just be a stream of photos with my intermittent narration.China trip post (photo heavy)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Our trip was Shanghai > Hangzhou > Nanjing > Suzhou > Wuxi > back to Shanghai. Then we went to Hong Kong on our own.
Oh yeah, first, since I have no photos of these (for good reason): THE SQUAT TOILETS. They suck. They stink. You can always tell if there's a bathroom nearby by the smell in the air! Half the time the flush doesn't even work. All the used toilet paper is tossed in a bin, so the smell just lingers and lingers. For some reason, sometimes they sell food right outside the bathrooms. LIKE WHY?! I don't know how anybody can think about eating with that smell there.
I drank as little as possible. Between my sis and I, we also brought 5-6 rolls of toilet paper, so it was more than enough. (We left the extra rolls at Grandma's in HK afterwards haha.)
Anyhoo, onto pictures...
From our place to China was a 12 hour flight, 4 hour break at airport, then

Ohooo, I celebrated my graduation ceremony with like billions of calories!
It was the first time I had sushi (but I am a bit suspicious if the sushi was a proper version, because apart of tuna or salmon, there were also pieces which included pieces of... a duck ), then we had some cake, Latte and finally that pizza. Yummmmm.
I am awfully back to healthy regime now, nah, I would so have something unhealthy
The graduation ceremony was... a bit boring. I loved the previous ones better (lol, this one was my the third), because they were somehow nicely confused, the guests applauded although they were not supposed to do so... Funny but this time it was very official, the speech of our new dean was also somehow official (I sooo loved the previous dean! Fortunately he was present on Friday too, having a speech, but shorter). And guests seemed to be bored, like somebody forced them to sit there :/
But it was not bad, simply a nice way how to say "goodbye" to my alma mater.
The reason why I 'call out artists'Well, I think I say enough about this crap already with my replies to people and in the original posts themselves but I want to get the final word out so people can read and interpret how they will.

As much as I don't want to address this, I want to to let people know why I do these things. This is kind of like a "snitches-get-stitches" kind of post, isn't it? I don't really have much to say since I already said a load of it when I made these posts but to people who think I want to sick my watchers etc on people it's not true. And remember as ruthless as the internet to these kind of things, they are also VERY forgiving. The Kidchan scenerio for example resolved itself nicely when Kidchan made a formal apology and properly addressed the situation. I ha

Just send me a printscreen via note as a proof, please (as usual, no feature for porn or animal cruelty, thank you for understanding)
At second, let me thank you for a camera bag! I could buy it thanks to all your donations and it arrived safe, looking pretty awesome I especially appreciate a special space for bottle of water thank you once moooore!
But you know what is funny? Maybe you remember I said that I ordered two T-shirts from DA as a reward for losing weight. I ordered them and paid with points 11/1/2012 and I was nervous because I waited long time without getting them. After Christmas, I informed dA that the package did not arrive. Because both T-shirts were already out of stock, DA politely got my points back. But two days ago, more than 4 months after ordering it, my T-shir

He had a family last summer, and since then he hasn't visited for a long long time :c (hence the lack of photos) But I've been seeing him out my window a lot with a mate and some babies QuQ awww. (I can tell it's him because he has a notch in his ear and muzzle scars)
but anyway, in summer I gave him a DeviantART stress ball xD and he used to play fetch with it, and he'd carry it off to his den. And today my mum found it all chewed up the top of my road! QuQ So he's been carrying it around ever since.

Sorry, it is a bit late so feature would not be found by enough people - so the kiriban winner will be featured next time.
I also found some annoying art-thief - I find really pathetic when those people are able to swear that they really took those photos :/
Please, only report and run without leaving a comment. Those people make me sick too, but you never know if they are just rude or if they have some mental issue
There are computer sample images (not my art) in his/her gallery...
And the last thing I want to say.
I saw Toddlers and Tiaras recently.
I mean... WHAT?!
Is that really USA's fun? it is SCARY! All those fat mothers who did not manage to live their dreams, so they want to realize through their poor kids. And fat or very skinny dads, who are too weak to stop it. And all those really incredible cases of little kids dressed up as prostitutes, smoking riders or so on... What kind of a parent

So finally my illness got worse - it is still just a cold, but I had to stay in a bed and I was coughing like having tuberculosis
But since today, I finally feel a bit better. I will have a little walk tomorrow and if I survive () I hope to travel to take some new photos as it is snow here now again!
I also prepared some materials as I want to self-study English. I need to improve. I know I have work to do :/ I am especially bad with prepositions and prepositional phrases. And also with the use of "to" - I am never sure if I should say "I am considered a bad person" or "I am considered TO be a bad person".
One nice thing: I do not have nightmares about my thesis anymore, so I kicked myself to write a "thank you letter" to my supervisor. I like her, she is a very skilled young teacher and I was concerned about her opinion on me. I was afraid that she would consider myself to be totally stupid because of my inability to write a good thesis. Her reply was short but ni

So! Recently the Naruto manga reverted to Sasuke! Which needed doing- honestly, I was begining to wonder where he was. I didn't review, because I don't like Sasuke, and those chapters were trying very hard to make me me like Sasuke by putting him NEAR Itachi (the only enviroment in which Sasuke's even SLIGHTLY woobie) It's got this whole 'redemption'/'please understand Sasuke's not evil' (he just wants to massacre civilians for the sins of the government) spin on it that harks back to Pein's bipolar switch from evil-to-good.

At first, thank you for supporting Allerlei and her photo - not only her photo will be included in a calendar, but she won, her photo had by far the most "likes"! thank you for helphig her - the calendar with her shot will be sold by ZOO Bratislava and the money will go to the construction of brand new wolf exhibit the ZOO is probably a bit poor, so it needs to get all the money first before it starts building. So such calendar might be a nice help! I can not wait - wolves now have very small, old cage, because the ZOO got them by mistake and had no proper place for housing them
At second, I announce a new kiriban - it is 922 222 and it is quite close. No chance to get 1 milion pageviews this year, but you have an apportunity to win a feature just catch it and send me a printscreen via note no feature for porn or animal cruelty

It was a very short trip, but I got to see ZOO Salzburg, visited fantastic spa, had a nice walk, travelled by cute little train, ate a deer and all was simply nice
But my camera and this ZOO are not friends :/ so I have only very few photos for you, I took mostly journal shots.
And their special GINGER (!!!!) wolves were sleeping again! I have never seen such inactive wolves in any ZOO
I also replied to almost all the notes!
I hope you do not hate me for not responding to all contest notes you sent me months ago - those who won were those who sent the first three notes, so there was justice anyway and the right answer was released too, so I would need to reply to all those messages just with "I am sorry that you did not win, I wish you good luck next time" thanks for understanding!

I don't really know what to put here hehe...Sometimes I feel like giving up on art. Especially when I'm surrounded by such talented people who are at levels I can barely fathom. There are times when I want to delete everything and just leave. I see other people who have more comments, faves, and pageviews and I can't help but feel discouraged and honestly, jealous, even though I know that in the scheme of things, such things are irrelevant.I don't really know what to put here hehe...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But I won't give up. Why?
Because of YOU. Yes, you, the reader. Because of your support I have grown tremendously as an artist and as a person. I look back on my earliest pieces of digital art and can't help but feel grateful that you've stuck with me through such low artistic periods (I mean seriously holy s***t.) So thank you for being there for me and standing as witness to my creative journey; for this I am truly in your debt.
So for all you people out there that feel like giving up, DON'T, because you can't let others or your own insecurities detract from something you love. In this case
AnyaHey everybody. I figured I'd make a post about what happened week before last.Anya10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some of you may be aware that I kept a Russian Domesticated Fox as a pet. Her name was Anya and I posted a few photos on here of her, but mainly on her Facebook Page that i made for her and made videos with her that we put on her Youttube channel.
I have waited a little while to post publically about this, because it's a very hard thing to come to terms with. For those of me who read my previous private post about this, I again want to thank you for your condolences and support that you provided me during this time.
To everyone who has enjoyed Anyas story and videos, I must tell you now that our beloved and special Anya has passed away. She was mortally wounded by a coyote.
As some of you know, Anya had an ourdoor living space constructed just for her. It was her favorite place to be in the whole world. She was never cheerier, happier or more comfortable than she was when she was in her home. She knew it was
Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex MachinaOK, I think I've calmed down enough to write a review now. Spoilers ahead!Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex Machina3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, let's start off with what worked in the season finale. The animation was just...incredible, the action was exciting and sweeping in its scale, and Zuko's voice was reincarnated as General Iroh the goddamn determinator! which was actually kinda distracting, cause I kept expecting him to be like "I AM SO GOOD AT BEING GOOD!!. Hiroshi Sato showed his true colors as a hate-filled douchenozzle, and Asami showcased her usual class and determination when faced with truly shitty circumstances (on a side note, I've always had a hard time believing that Mr. Sato invented all those airplanes and mechas and stuff, because honestly, when we met him he kinda gave off a Henry Ford vibe, not an "engineering genius" vibe like that crazy eyebrow dude from A:TLA. But whatever, that's a minor point). And of course Naga was a badass...and according to tumblr, there are now people who ship Bolin x Naga. Just...why.
Japanese Guardian Dog -Komainu-It's left undone for a long time to submitting my journal. I don't have interesting news, something exciting and so on around me recently.Japanese Guardian Dog -Komainu-2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Therefore I will sometimes submit journals which introduce Japanese culture, tradition, history, fashion and daily life, though I'm lazy and uncertain weather.
Part 1... "Komainu".
Komainu [狛犬] are always sitting at the gate of (or at the street side of) Jinja [神社] (Shinto shrine in Japan). They are guardians of Jinja. They are just gatekeepers of Jinja. Their figure is almost like dogs which muzzles are short. Their figure and expression are very strict, but a bit cute, I think.
Koimainu are originally Chinese Lion statues. They came from China to Japan with Buddhism thousand and several hundred years ago. Lions in China originally came from India, beyond mountains of Himalaya, through desert of central Asia, and via Silk Road. In addition to it, lions of Thailand and Cambodia also originate lion statues of Ind

Also read how there's lots of people, including 180 newspapermen, at the mountain "Pic de Bugarach" in France because they believe underneath that mountain is a giant UFO that will save the good people. The police had to block the entrance because these people act crazy.
Just as crazy as the people that wait for Jesus to arrive in an UFO and kill off evil and gay people today.
There's also 60'000 people that went to Sirence in Turkey right now, because it's a holy place that'll be safe in case the world goes down. Because Turkey isn't part of the world.
