You knew that already if you've been reading my stupid, scatterbrained journals about this.
But rumor has it there's more to come, and while I don't usually take stock in rumors, this would make sense. You don't create all this hype just for a remake on a new platform. In fact, I'm including that as potential hype for something to come.
But if you repeat this to anyone, remember to preface it with, "I heard this from some idiot on the internet"
Because that's all I am. xD
Now, while we're on this subject, I've been doing some thinking, and actually...
...listen close here because you won't hear me say this very often...
I'm actually proud of Square for all of this.
Hear me out.
The World Ends with You, or as I fondly and lazily call it, "TWEWY", was obviously more a work of passion than anything else.
Do you get angry when you draw?...this is why I don't think I should be drawing for a living/hobby.Do you get angry when you draw?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unless my sketch goes 100% perfect from the start, which is rare (although it *is* happening more often as I grow with my art), art pisses me the f*ck off. xD
(Especially commissions, lol, but I don't like to say that because I don't want to scare my customers away)
My boyfriend knows that when I am sketching, if he talks to me, there is a 50/50 chance he will have his head bitten off.
But seriously, three failed sketches in and I'm just as bad as any of my worst PMS days.
What is up with that?
Shouldn't art be a fun thing that comes naturally and makes me happy?
Does art ever make you so angry you could spit/cry/set things on fire/all of the above?
Edit: As a side-note, I guess this lets you into my little world. My art may be adorable and cute when it's done, but the road to finishing it is fraught with tantrums and "GOD I SWEAR I'M GOING TO QUIT ART FOREVER"s.

Hope you had a great holiday season.
Since the new official BBA website launched ( http://www.blackbloodalliance.com ), I've been receiving messages from some of the visitors informing me that their Antivirus Software is blocking the site and/or flagging it as potentially harmful.
I wanted to fill you in on what's going on (for those of you who want me to skip right to the point - there are no viruses/malware on the BBA site so go ahead and put it on your antivirus software's Safe List).
As some of you may know, in the past our site has always been at THEblackbloodalliance.com -so you always had to put THE in front, and blackbloodalliance.com without the "the" wouldnt take you to the right place.
That is because during the time when people got off on making my life online a living hell, someone registered the domain blackbloodall

I'm taking suggestions to what I can draw. Please leave them as comments to this journal, if you don't mind the fact that I haven't drawn 99.99% of the suggestions I have gotten in the past..
I cannot answer which suggestions I will draw, I will pick randomly from this and the previous journal.
I advice you to do a search on my gallery (the search window is on top of the gallery page) to see if I've already drawn something you like to see.
I WILL draw:
Fanart of any games/animes/etc. if there are links to references you can give me.
I probably WILL NOT draw:

I'll admit that unfortunately no art program is as good, in my "professional" opinion, as the ones you have to pay for (I'd die without Photoshop/Open Canvas), but I am glad to see that free art programs are VASTLY improving.
Might as well download it and see how you like it! I haven't done anything serious with it yet, but I messed around with it a bit. I might try to make a real artwork with it to show off its capabilities some time. xD I definitely like it better than SAI, which costs money, so that's saying something.
Hooray for FireAlpaca!

CEA Blog: How (And Where) to Report DeviationsThe Galleries here at deviantART.com receive, on average, around a hundred thousand submissions every day- any way you look at it that is a lot of creative works coming in every minute of every day. Among this outpouring of creativity which we call Deviations there are, inevitably, works which could be potential problems and when members of the community find deviations which could be troublesome for one reason or another it is only natural to want to bring them to the attention of the staff here at deviantART.CEA Blog: How (And Where) to Report Deviations3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

She has made a video to explain her situation, which you can see here:
(Links on how to help and donate are located in the video description.)
She is desperate for donations, and I am sad to say that for once in my life, I can't even spare a dollar. So the best I can do for now is to pass this on.
I can't believe how little she has raised out of her goal...especially when I've watched non-life-threatening campaigns often overshoot their lofty goals.
I wish her the best of luck, and I'm hoping this spreads and she gets the support she needs, and deserves.
She's been through a lot. I don't know why life is so cruel to some.
Please pass this on.

Lessons Learned: How I Dealt With An Art ThiefEvery day, many people on deviantArt find themselves dealing with art thieves off-site (outside deviantArt). There are many ways to approach this issue, but this article is about how I went about it. I'm only writing this in an attempt to be helpful to others going through the same thing, or give ideas to those going through it who don't know where to start or what to do. Becoming victim to an art ripper isn't a hopeless, helpless situation. Though I was inexperienced with the issue at the time and justifiably angered, I was able to prevail through a mixture of help from other kind deviants, a professional manner/attitude and resources found on the web.Lessons Learned: How I Dealt With An Art Thief8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
My particular case began one day about a week after my first Daily Deviation was given to me by Aeires. Up until that time I was a relatively unknown artist, and was minimally protecting my work with an easily removed watermark. I didn't really think my work was worth stealing, and honestly hadn't thought about what would happen if

That's right, the policies actually have a rather distasteful loophole in them, something so foul I'm surprised it even exists without question, I wouldn't even expect DA to try and pull this off, much less try to justify it but CP is allowed on DA, "within reason" meaning, as long as you avoid the obvious aspects of heavily pornographic material, you can have child pornography on DA, which mind you, that kinda shit shouldn't even exist as an option, CP is CP, whether the creation is human, anthro or whatever the fuck you can come up with, if it's a fetishized minor, it's child pornography. I could pull off PPG porn because of this rule, simply because they're not human, but I shouldn't even be able to do so.

Hacker found on Twitter!!!Hey guys I've managed to track the hacker that's been terrorizing DeviantArt down on Twitter, from what I've seen he's stolen over more than 2000 accounts here and is currently stealing more and more. What's worse is he's aiming to shut down dA and his next target seems to be Tumblr, he's also set up an anti-aspergers campaign. I won't let him get away with this, I'll be keeping watch of this hacker for a while monitoring his tweets and I'll keep you guys postedHacker found on Twitter!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
His way of stealing others accounts is he set up a false website that SUPPOSEDLY lead you to the dA login, but in actual fact it was a phony page so that he could steal people's usernames and passwords. I'll do what I can to keep you guys updated but it won't be enough on it's own so you need to spread the word to as many Deviants as possible cause they to might be in danger from this hacker. Also if you have a tumblr account then warn as many as possible there and encourage them to spread the warning as well so they c

1. Take actual cases of art theft a bit more seriously.
This seems to be the one most people are on about and yeah, I get pissed off about someone stealing my stuff but what really gets me is how hard it is to resolve the situation. It shouldn't be that hard to get staff members to remove a stolen piece. More so when it's the original artist reporting it.
It doesn't take a genius to review a situation where the works are side by side and compare if they are indeed stolen or flat
