Faded ScarsOut the window my eyes never stray,Faded Scars1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thinking thoughts of yesterday.
Days that have past and days to come
While those around me chat away.
I sit and think, and in my ear,
I hear the screams of a man I wish to meet.
"Let shadows die, so i can feel alive."
With every word, every cord.
The shadows with in me are beaten back,
But never die.
An endless battle with an eternal foe,
Fight back the blade that brings the red crimson flow
Faded scars, healed scars,
Arms and wrist and legs.
All reminders of my bloody past.
Fallen Angles Saved my life,
Kept me from my coffin.
Saved me from myself.
Beware of Some Tutorials... This is just my opinion. I have to lead with that. Everyone is free to agree or disagree and disregard.Beware of Some Tutorials...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've had loads of people over the past few months ask me to create tutorials.
I never have. I'm not sure when I will, and I'll tell you why. Deviantart is filled to the brim with the most *awful* tutorials. And now that "Tutorials" have a priority category ( meaning they get to the front page every single time regardless of how many hits they get), some users have been creating tutorial after tutorial just to abuse that loop hole.
Thing is, I find a lot of these people who create the tutorials, have no business creating them in the first place o_o;. Some of them ( not all) aren't doing it to be helpful to the masses. Some of them are doing it to try to make one (to see if they can set it up, to see if they can make it interactive), or to see if they can use the exploit. Those people are not helping you.

Love is kind
Hate is meek
Please have an open mind
Otherwise you'll be weak
Humans are equal
Nobody deserves to be treated bad
Hate and Segregation is Evil
All your ignorance makes us sad

We will never back down
We rule the never ending night
But now we will take our place in the sun, this is our Plight

A Cup of Creativity Challenge!My last challenge (The CCC - The Crayon Creation Challenge) turned out to be a load of fun and produced some unbelievable artworks! I thought it was time to do a new challenge. From the poll, there seem to be plenty of you to take partA Cup of Creativity Challenge!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What's the point?
* For fun
* For the challenge
* To try something new with a non standard medium
* I'll feature everyone on my page for a week with the art from this challenge
* For my favourite piece, I'll give away my coffee creation as a prize (and if it sucks, I'll do you a drawing instead)
What are the rules?
* Paint a portrait using coffee as your medium and nothing else (well, maybe a tiny bit of graphite for your sketch and tiny touches of your choice of white/black medium for highlighting/darkening choice areas, but that's it!) Your art must be at least 90% coffee.
* Paint whoever you like, but it must be a painting that you have put time into; I won't accept halfhearted or obviously rushed entr

.tell me anything, give me a poem -.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
let me walk through the night with light
in palms outstretched and melt the dark,
pour salt and time and swim
right through the net, fresh water
brimming diamonds in the sun, i hit the ice
and rise as steam, a shepherd of the air, a gentle ghost
that hears the scrubbing of her grave -
and i am still afraid of needles in my skin
from mother death, she said she birthed too soon
a life that kept its eyes shut to the world, the best,
she told me, i had skin of bark, so thick and strong,
my veins like branches, they'll feel holy
to the birds, got roots that go straight down to hell, when will i learn
that there is no grace to be found in hanging
from a tree, my neck is twice as strong as mary's, but in my body
way down deep,
there's something turning fitfully
(and it knows more than i do)
Apparently there's Drama on my page???Wow, so my tumblr followers told me about some drama going on my Archive Page for Raindrops.Apparently there's Drama on my page???2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A little amused but after checking I found that it was indeed true and a certain user ragequit on Raindrops due to the lack of updates. A couple of things I would like to address since I've been busy, I haven't checked DA in a while so I haven't been able to read all of the comments. SO!
1) This was really amusing to read on some level.
2) Thank you to everyone who defended me.
3) Sorry to those who agree
4) Thanks to the rest for understanding!
And most importantly!!! I mentioned in the past that my average speed for writing Raindrops is usually one chapter per year. Usually because life gets in the way like... work, and friends, and other interests. And just because I don't get to Raindrops doesn't mean that I've abandoned it. It just means that I haven't gotten to it. In fact, I've spent the last several weekends writing and rewriting the script for Chapter 8 (which is like the longest chapt
Frequently Asked QuestionsHey guys!Frequently Asked Questions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thought I'd make a FAQ since I've received the same questions over and over again. If there's anything else you'd like to know, comment here and I'll add it.
What materials do you use?
I use polymer clay and TLS (translucent liquid sculpey). I don't have a preferred brand, but I mostly end up using Sculpey III and Premo.
How do you color your clay?
I use soft chalk pastels to shade my clay. Any large, solid colors in the clay are just different colors of clay.
What paints do you use?
When I use paints (mostly for the faces on some of the charms), I use regular acrylic paint applied AFTER the item is baked. I then seal it with glaze to keep the paint from fading off.
I want to start working with clay! What materials do I need?
I have a basics guide here for those who are curious as to what you need.
How do you make your charms/miniatures shiny?
got an email from Penguin Publishers!...and I just gave them information about the book. Guys, this whole publication dream might actually come true! Thank you so, so much to all of you who have stuck with me from the beginning, and to all of you who have just started following me. I love and adore every single one of you and will make sure you each get a copy of Paper Stars if it gets published, because you're the reason I've made it this far. I can't even begin to explain how much support you all have given me when I've felt useless or untalented or insignificant: you, my watchers, my friends, have been with me and believed in me even when I'm at my lowest, and I cannot put to words the extent of my gratitude. From commenting on every single one of my pieces to simply clicking the "watch" or "favorite" button, you have given me the confidence and drive to pursue my dreams despite my anxiety and fear, and I could never ask for anything more wonderful.

I have a larger soapbox here.
I'm sorry but… people who keep bitching about alicorn/princess Twilight?
Are really goddamn irritating.
All I see is a bunch of whining. SO MUCH WHINING.
"BAWWWW, NOW SHE'S A PRINCESS!"
"BAAAAWW, NOW SHE HAS WINGS!"
"BAAWWW, I DON'T LIKE CHANGE!"
Fuck! Grow up.
My Little Pony was, and always has been, a cartoon made to sell toys. IT'S A GIANT COMMERCIAL. That is the entire reason it exists—GET OVER IT. Nevertheless, the writers do a damn good job working in all of Hasbro's marketing desires.
Besides, it was completely expected. For instance: A decent bit of FiM pulls inspiration from Sailor Moon. Annnnd guess what? Sailor Moon was a princess—who periodically "leveled up" and got things like wings.
Also, princesses are a marketing trend right now—of course Hasbro is going to cash in on that.

My name is Kodama. I am 24 years old and I love art.
From years of experience, I’ve managed to satisfy over a hundred customers and finished more than hundred drawings for private clients and small commercial projects alike. Together we can make your ideas come true.
I am a multimedia illustrator hailing from Poland in Europe. I have been involved in artwork, concepts and graphic projects for over 10 years. Working both private commissions and taking part in bigger projects, I can say without a doubt, it has been (and still is!) an exhilarating journey. Art, especially the visual medium, is what stimulates and motivates me as I continuously strive to improve myself.
For every piece of work I create, I pour a little bit of myself into it. It does not matter whether it is a single private order or part of a larger work; I always aim for my work to be unique.
