Melodrama"Oh, good morning, Simon."Melodrama3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Simon looked up from the bowl of cereal he was fixing himself and grinned. "Good morning, yourself. Just fixing some breakfast before we head to town—no other food here and I'm half starved."
"Good luck with that," said Holly, regarding the pile of bran flakes that sat inside the bowl. "There's no milk left."
"There's no more milk. Ran out of it last night and I didn't have time to make it to the grocery store."
"But I already poured my cereal!" said Simon with distress.
"That's unfortunate," replied Holly. She then watched with perplexity as her temporary flat-mate set the bowl on the counter, walked over to his cot and collapsed into the sheets. "Simon, what are you doing?" she asked.
Simon threw an arm over his face, covering his eyes with the crook of his elbow. "All that trouble for nothing," he moaned. "What is this? What is my life?!"
"This is a cruel world." The young man rolled onto his stomach, dragging the covers with him until he

A Call For Content... Writers, this is for you.Hey guys! It’s been awhile, I know. For those of you who haven’t been following along with my journals for the last year, let me give you a bit of an introductory course to Mio. This past year I set aside artwork for my writing (my true passion). It’s been a bit of an adventure, and a year after I started, here I am, a Professional Reader and Review Blogger. I didn’t get a lot of writing done in the end, but I’ve gained a lot of knowledge on the writing industry, and I’ve made a lot of connections with authors, publishers, and editors. It has been such a wonderful experience for me, and I’ve found that finally, I’m doing something I really love. (Because what’s greater than getting free books before they’re published and the only thing you have to do is tell people what you thought about it? Seriously.)A Call For Content...

Just had some awesome dinner and I've read up on your feedback. Thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts, and I'm happy to have provided my positive perspectives on Sonic Boom - optimism is a good thing to have in life, give it a go where you can!
Also, shoutout to :iconHappyAggro: for handing me this link on a quick summary of what's legit on the whole franchise as well as link to the latest updates of Sonic Boom when they come.
And oh my god, I felt like a kid all over again when I saw these!
Seriously THIS kind of stuff, concept artwork, was the main reason why I got myself a pencil and a paper on that very day (when I turned on my brother's SEGA SATURN to play SONIC JAM)

You guys. Guys. Guys. US peeps. Um. (RL stuff)I... follow a lot of US-based political blogs. And have friends out there, and ... find what is currently going absolutely f*cking terrifying and enraging on a visceral bloodboiling level. But, you know. That's just me, out in some secular socialist Old World country, quaffing down my cheap birth control pills and, outrageously, not crippled by hospital bills after my freelance boyfriend's domestic accident of two years ago because of all that damned taxpayer money going into a national health insurance.You guys.

But that, of course, is anecdata and nothing to go forming political opinions on. (Also I have a uterus, and what with all those craaaayzee lady hormones swishing around my weak little brainpan, I'll've completely changed my mind in a week don't mind me!)

Changes.Well, the time has come for it to be done and although I don't want to I think I have to.Changes.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Given the recent uprising and being informed of art theft on other websites it's time to start putting an opaque watermark on my work somewhere.
Places like Facebook tend to blur and distort images when you re-upload them and therefore most of the time transparent/semi-transparent watermarks get warped and invisible... I'm not comfortable with that.
Some people may not care but I do, more so when it's commissioned pieces that these people are taking and using for RP characters, which is what about 90% of the stolen/altered pieces were in these last few incidents.
Look, I don't mind people sharing my work, posting it other places to show it to others, but credit must be given and the image CANNOT be altered in anyway from it's original state.
This is something people don't seem to get... mostly the 'credit must be given' part.

... I propose you a project. Lemme explain
So, this was, at first, something I was going to do by myself. By the end of 2012, I looked at my art and wondered if I was actually improving. I had the sensation that, indeed, I had gotten a bit better... but just a bit. I had neglected real practice, real hard work, never getting out of my comfort area. And that is not good. Ever since I left Comic School and I got into University I have focused on some other things, and I have forgotten about drawing as a living... and it makes me really sad, because I must confess that nothing would make me happier than drawing as a profession, or even better, animatio
Contest 23 - Historical DisneyContest 23 - Historical Disney2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And the winners are...
In the Judge's Section:
Chosen by :iconmistytang::iconzimeta::iconshoomlah:
Give me your voice by Khioora
What the judges were saying: "Khioora's piece definitely jumped out at me when I was first browsing through the entries- it's a striking illustration, granted, but I was also taken with the integration of both 1830's fashion, and Romantic period portrayals of mermaids with more delineated legs. I'm not a huge fan of fashion in the 1830's, but I'll be the first to admit that it's a blast to draw; I think Khioora did a great job of capturing the so-called "Waist and Extravagance" of the period with both her characters' overall silhouette, and her general detailing of the costume. Great stuff!"~ shoomlah

REAL CREATIVISM LOGA lot of people ask me what do i think when im drawing, whats your creative process, and what are the magical fairies you are thinking while you draw, about life, beauty and wisdom of the world. You will be surprised how thats not what i think while i draw and how this process repeats all the time while i draw.REAL CREATIVISM LOG3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The purpose of this journal its to let people know how we are all filled with doubts agony and stupid funny things while we draw. So you wont feel you are doing something wrong.
Will be cool if this became a spam, and people started to share in their journals the same way i did while you are at work.
Okay, lets star, first the setting, if you had seen the tv show 24, picture that way while im drawing, with several cameras on my sides, this will make the reading more funny, if you havent seen the show picture this sound each time you read time passes, while im drawing.

An Aereoscopic Adventure!An Aereoscopic Adventure!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

The Rurouni Kenshin Movie ExperienceSome months ago, a rumor surfaced that they would be showing the Rurouni Kenshin live action movie at our theaters here in the Philippines. After some weeks of torture, we were finally given an official confirmation and screening date! The day they started selling tickets online, I got a bunch for me and my friends, even though it was a couple of months too early, hahah!The Rurouni Kenshin Movie Experience3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nearing the screening date, I received a wonderful surprise from :iconup-ame: UP-AME.org.
They invited me to be a guest and cosplay competition judge for Swordplay, a Rurouni Kenshin fan event, and also to the special advanced screening days before the official screening date. I've often thought that if there is one cosplay I would like people to remember me by, it would be Kenshin. I was very honored and touched that they had thought of including me to a day celebrating a series that means so much to me, and a movie I had been looking forward to for ages.
My friends and I had decided s

Commissions - Paypal/USD and PointsAnyone who orders will be kept on a spreadsheet document in Microsoft Excel, stating your name, how much you paid, what type of commission you ordered, and the link of your commission. So do not fret, I will keep a history of my commissioners.Commissions - Paypal/USD and Points3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I take payments for USD, Deviantart points, and even a combination of payments, so keep that in mind as well.
I will watermark the commissions (it's not obnoxious) until payment is given at the end. I ask that you pay me when I'm done, and then I will remove the watermark and you will happily receive your art in all its glory! This way you have no reason to worry about me running off with money, and I have no reason to worry about disappearing commissioners either.
I'll show you each step (sketch, flat colors, shading, etc.) and along the way, please let me know of any changes that must be made.
You can cancel safely without paying during the sketch phase, but if you cancel out on any further steps, you may have to pay either the full price or so
