anyway, I received an email from a commissioner and it made me realize, that it doesn't matter if i'm stressed at work or with all the problems i have with my life, or DEPRESSED, I SHOULDN'T HAVE KEPT ALL OF YOU in the dark! even my best friend. I could write a whole blog of all the things that happened to me BUT, I don't think its your problem and you probably can't do anything about it. so i'll refrain from doing that (announcing personal life probs etc.)
I have an update though. Since my husband got a job and my son goes to school at 6 fucking AM, I have become very busy with everyday situations, it started last June. I'm getting used to the schedules but I can't find time to draw cause I still have a lot of underlying problems. I have decided to make another stupid decision of getting a part time job. or at least, If i ever get an offer with this one guy that wants to have a deal with me, I get extra money

Sorry, should have done this earlier to make it a bit easier, but here's a link to the Relativity cheat-sheet with basic character information, as well as a link to the Character Profile folder:
We want to thank everyone for their interest in this project. We are looking to get a series of sound-bites/quotes together to use in a promotional piece for our fiction series, Relativity. Note that our series is free-for-download (and for a nominal cost on Amazon). We're not looking to make a ton of money with this. With that in mind, please understand there is no compensation involved, but credit will be given. Plus, we just hope it will be a lot of fun.

"What happened to what we talked about Korra?" Asami angrily snapped as she sat on the steps to the Air Temple Island training ground. "I thought you were going to be nice and reconnect with Mako again, not start a fight with him." Ever since Korra's return Asami has been a frequent visitor at the island. Korra liked the company of someone else her own age with the guidance she needed, but she could do without the occasional lectures.
"Hey," Korra said as she pointed at Asami. "It wasn't my fault. Mako was the one who decided to open his big stupid mouth." Korra then faced a White Lotus she was sparing with and took her stance.
"But still, you shouldn't have snapped like you did." Asami said a last time.
"Would you just give me some credit for not punching his lights out?" Korra responded. After her response, Korra gave her opponent a slight nod.
After receiving his signal, the White Lotus guard kicked out a wave of fire straight towar
The genius of Miyazaki - Art HistoryIf you haven't heard his name, you must have heard about at least one of his creations. So, who's Miyazaki? It's easier to say who he's not.The genius of Miyazaki - Art History2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hayao Miyazaki was born on the 5th of January 1941 in Bunkyo, Tokyo, as a second of four sons. His father was a director in young Miyazaki's uncle's factory producing rudders for fighter planes - this is where Hayao became highly interested in aviation, which often appears in his films.
When Miyazaki was a little kid, his mother suffered from Pott's disease (sort of tuberculosis) and spent a few years in a hospital. Some says that a very similiar motif appearing in "Tonari no Totoro" ("My neighbour Totoro") was strongly inspired by that part of his life. Also, during his childhood, Miyazaki had to change his place of residence and switch schools several times, which influenced his films a lot, too.
On the subject of Copyrights and ContentsI'd like to take this moment to address a very important issue within the art community, and this is Copy Rights.On the subject of Copyrights and Contents2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently I had had a situation with a client that reminded me that both parties- the client AND the artist- have specific rights that need to be addressed at the time of creating a design and/or illustration. Both parties need to have a CLEAR understanding of their rights, and ask any and as many questions until they feel as if they have the right information. Assumption and dishonesty are not good business foundations, let alone become legal liability in the long run. Lying on any side is the most common action that leads to bigger situations that at time, will be dealt with legally.
From here on in, the "Client" is the commissioner, and the "Artist" is the person in charge of design, illustration, and/or color.
1) The difference between "content" and "product/property".
When someone commissions you for a design, you have many different types of ownership. The most common

and I can't stop thinking about it. My mom decided to turn our house into a ragtime saloon and it was SO LOUD twenty four hours a day because of the rousing Joplin tunes and the rowdy old-timey men and the bawdy barmaids and I could not get any work done at all. So I approached my mom and said, in the calmest, most direct manner I could, "Mom, I don't appreciate you turning our house into a ragtime saloon without even talking to me about it first. It's so loud all the time that I'm not getting enough sleep and consequently, I am not getting enough work done. I would appreciate it if our house could go back to being a house instead of a hubbub for early jazz influences."
But my mom didn't care. She was all, "You can't tell me what to do! We're making a ton of money, so you just have to suck it up!"
I tried to tell her that we couldn't pay the bills with early 20th century bank notes, but she would have non

Because it was from the guy in my French class who keeps asking the professor what he can to do get rid of the stretch marks on his inner thighs.
He also gets up in the middle of class, loudly announces he has to pee, and then leaves.
The kid who sits in front of him is going to snap one day because stretch mark guy will reach up out of nowhere and start rubbing the other guy's back.
Stretch mark kid also told me that I need to change my name to Chastity.
And then asked me to marry him.
I thought he was joking because, you know, who does that? So I was all, "Ha ha ha," but he just looked at me, completely serious, and went, "No, really."
I still thought he was joking, so I offered him another half-hearted "Ha ha ha."
He deadpanned, "I mean it."
I just started at him because what the heck am I supposed to say to something like that?
I went, "Um. No, thank you."
He keeps staring at me.

to all the people who have ever considered suicideThere is always a reason to keep fighting. I do not care how pitiful your life is, how seemingly insignificant, how painfulyou do matter. You matter to someone: perhaps it's your mother, your father, your friend. Perhaps it's someone you haven't even met yet, but that's part of the adventure, isn't it? There is always something more to come. Every human life is so incredibly and insurmountably precious. And I will not sit here and tell you that there are people who have it worse than you, because that's silly and useless. In your world, you feel alone and desperate and you feel as if nothing, nothing could ever make you feel happy or even functional again, and that is your world. You feel as if your life, your universe, everything you ever thought about yourself and the people around you is crumbling and crashing down. But I can guarantee that it will get better. I promise you. I promise.to all the people who have ever considered suicide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
