I would post on here, but it's proving tricky, I dunno.
Credit Where Credit Is DueGetting credited for the work you do is the most simple wish that is shared by every single artist alive. Whether you draw stick figures doing something silly, or unique master works of scenes from fantastical worlds, or characters ranging from simple and cartoony to complex, detailed and realistic. You obviously want to get a little acknowledgment for your work, even if it's a simple thumbs up or anything really.Credit Where Credit Is Due2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it is incredibly understandable to be upset or disheartened when people mistake work you do for the work of another artist. Whether be simply because they saw the character or concept done by someone else first before seeing what was originally done. Or just something similar.
It can be as simple as not checking the credits most artists give when they draw characters that belong to others, it can be a careless first glance mistake, but that doesn't really excuse the fact that when you mistake a character or concept for the wrong artist who did it, it annoys and hurts them.
Last 2 weeksI'm down to the end of summer, and I'm gettin' more pages done, but I prolly won't get them ALL 100% complete (as In I may still have 4 or 5 pages left in the inking stage still) cause I have a lot of things to do before going back to school, BUT I'll get em done quick once there, and all around I have plenty to start postin' now!Last 2 weeks2 years ago in Personal More Like This

WELCOME TO HELLTHE SENIOR THESIS ANIMATION.WELCOME TO HELL3 years ago in Personal More Like This
click here to know what I'm talking about
I have this comic that I started doing about 2 summers ago called Welcome to Hell which I never have time to update. I somehow managed to get 2 DDs out of it. Some of you may remember it, some of you may not, some of you have been helping me develop the idea since I first joined deviantArt. Some of you are loyal followers for reasons I can't fathom but nonetheless I'm grateful for your interest, feedback, and support. So I guess I kind of owe it to you guys to let you follow my progress on my senior thesis film, should you like to!
For a while it was kind of a toss-up between WtH and this other idea I started animating Sophomore year which would've probably been called "The Intergalactic Multiversal Time-Traveling Space Shenanigans of Blackie Maxx, Sp

Call for all singers/songwriters/Musicians!watching a fan-animated song reminded me of how bad I want to animate to music/a song.Call for all singers/songwriters/Musicians!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd love to do a song that told a story for thesis but didn't think I'd find one in time or have someone willing to sing one/ect/ect.
plus the whole copyright issue and what have you, but the internet is full of music artists and ya know who knows!
anyways right now I'm kinda going into a dark place as far as what my thesis will be, I have lots of ideas but doubts about all of them, so tell you what.
If you are a musician, or KNOW a musician who writes songs or has songs, and just all that, and would be at all interested in a song being FULLY animated, or singing a song to be animated, LET ME KNOW
email me at
link me examples of your work, songs and what have you.
This is not a definite thing, but I figure while I struggle to decide on a definite thesis, I might as well leave this open for people if they are at all interested in their music being animated.

When I'm not at work, I'm.. at work haha
So I have had even less time to do personal art (still forces some stuff out when I can) but majority of what I have been doing is either for other people, or strictly the ZP comic.
On a good note though, I am meeting with a good friend to help me deal with this silly website sometime this week, and I am pretty darn sure he will be able to actually help me. Once the website is set up and ready to go, I will start posting the intro-to the into- pages fffff
So Fingers crossed that will happen over the next week or so!
In other news, I am working on a few art related projects for some other talented artists, so that may be taking a little bit of my time away from doing my own stuff. We'll see <3
if I post anything it will prolly be stuff on tumblr.
I wish I could say i'm having fun, So I just will.

-Let's talk about you n' me, let's talk about all the good things, all the bad things- trolling mihgt be! Let's talk abouuuut trolling....lettalkabouttrolling.
That song works surprisingly well for this journal. ANYWAY.
SO! Hey guys! You can actually go vote now on my current poll about trolling: http://skirtzzz.deviantart.com/journal/poll/2883578/
I worked for a company all last year that dealt with internet bullying. Trolling most definitely falls into the same category. Which, in my case, I find it ironic when I get rude comments and trolls- it's like setting fire to a fireman's house. We studied the whole concept so deeply at work- as to why people troll in the first place, and the list goes on and on, but it really boils down to an overall insecurity, which the safety of a computer screen can easily bandage.

~For the writers to get their shit together and write a story that makes sense.
~For Tina to get an episode. Just about her, no subplots of other characters. Just Tina for an hour, the whole story and all the songs, because she has been cheated out of it for three seasons.
~Continuity. Enough said.
~For someone to realize the teachers at this school all SUCK, fire all of them and get new ones.
~For Kurt and Mercedes to be besties again. Remember when they talked about everything and were practically inseparable and then they just... stopped? Yeah what happened there?
~For Blaine to not become another Rachel. He's pretty close at this point but please RIB, just NO ((Edit: By this I mean that he is being given, like all the male leads/solos NOT that their personalities are the same))

Hi Y'all! This is a request by GuardianofHappiness. The song is When You Believe by Chole Agnew. Enjoy~
Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song we barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were climbing mountains long before we knew we could
You were watching an alien movie, curtsey of the planet you and the guardians were staying on. Though you didn't have an inkling of the dialogue, you could get a pretty good feel of the plot. The hero was trying to save his love from a great villain. You couldn't really narrow it down more, but you were pretty sure a sibling betrayed him? You couldn't tell who was male or who was female, but you rolled with it anyway.
There can be miracles when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

I want to have a second 'main' character. Kind of like a counterpart to Chiaro, I guess.
Design Chiaro a friend character! ^^ And whoever's character I pick I will give the prize to.
Keep markings somewhat simple!
Do not make the colors clash.
The character may be either male or female.
I don't like purple, pink, or red. Avoid those colors unless you have an awesome idea with them.
I do not like piercings.
Do not make it a 'scene' or 'sparkledog.'
It must be a CANINE! xD
No chihuahuas, pomeranians, etc. I would like a character with a similar build to Chiaro.
The character does not have to match Chiaro, but I would like them to look good together.
You may enter as many times as you wish.
[Bullet; Blue] Also please remember: this is a DESIGN contest, not an ART contest! Even if you feel that your art is not good, please enter! I am judging on

Hey! So, making this one for a friend, hope y'all enjoy. The song is Arms by Christina Perri
I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart
But you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start
You pushed through the crowd, eyes wide with terror. Blue hair, purple skin, yellow slitted pupils all flashed before you. Yup. On an alien planet in god-knows-where. You could hear the sound of your pursuers behind you, shouting. You'd been abducted two weeks ago from earth, right out of your backyard. The aliens who took you? Not nice guys. You were pretty sure the leaders name was Yondu, or something like that.
You put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go
You put your arms around me and I'm home
The bandits had cornered you. Your back was pressed to an alley wall, and your E/C colored eyes threatened tears. You couldn't go back to a lifetime on that ship. You just wanted
The Myth of TalentThe Myth of TalentThe Myth of Talent7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
If there's one comment that is made more often than any other on any decent piece of artwork it's "you're so talented."
It's also the one [positively intended] comment I've seen the most artists bristle at, sometimes even retort. For some of us, it's a pet hate. Why?
We know it's meant as a compliment, so we smile and say thank you and try to resist the urge to insist that 'talent' is the biggest myth there is. Not only is it a myth, at its worst the use of the word is potentially destructive to the artistic community.
What's so wrong with the word 'talent'?
You might not realise it, but calling someone talented can often feel like a backhanded compliment. No skilled artist woke up one day just being able to do what they can do. We were all born completely unable to do just about anything useful. But through daily practise we learned how to use our limbs for motility, our voices for words, an
