Regarding the Boston Marathon BombingI've tried to write this journal a few times, but I am having trouble finding words.Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I live in Massachusetts, so Boston is "my home" when I travel and the city that I most strongly associate with myself. I'm mad. I don't know how to feel about things like this other than to be mad. In an age of immediate and 24 news, it's hard to not know who or why, and endlessly frustrating to watch people fight and blame without any factual information.
I do love the quote from Fred Rogers that has been going around. But I also think about the words of people like George Carlin. Is this just how we live now? I feel like people my age, who were teens during 9/11, live our lives just assuming that any and every day there's a chance we could be violently and senselessly killed by a random act of violence. Does that mean that the people who do these things have succeeded?

BUT I HAVE A GOOD NEW! xD
The neurologist told me the only treatment is toxines, but he doesn't want to use it yet (like my physiotherapist said).
But he told me that I can try to re-educate my brain.
He told me that playing piano and playing videogames (LOL????????????????????????????? xDDD) can re-educate my brain.
If it works, my hand is not going to improve... it would be healed!
LOL I cried in the office when the doctor told me I can heal it
It's gonna be hard, i don't know how long it would take and it will hurt (because I was playing this afternoon and now it hurts like hell

We won't be strict about the colour of the characters, objects, but the overall picture must give off the impression of the colour you have chosen. In fact, we encourage you to experiment with colours, exploring the depth of toning and lighting using different kinds of colour!

Hey guys! Fanime was amazing but it totally left me sick for weeks after I got better, I went through the letters I got and found one that had nothing but $20 and a note describing one of my posters. It looked like someone made a mistake and accidentally gave me their money without getting a poster. I want to return that money so If it was you, please e-mail me with your name and address.
In other news, I will be at Anime Expo at table A24 and A25 Hopefully the Knite books will be ready by then!
Deadline ExtensionHelloDeadline Extension10 months ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of group members who wish to enter the contest and invited artists asked me if another deadline extension is possible.
I do understand that the current deadline is a bit unfortunate since everyone has to finish his/her schoolwork and study for their exams. Also I'm a afraid that some of the current invited artists are inactive so there might be a small recruitment in the future.
So the new deadline will be on the 31st July 2013
I hope this is enough time for everyone to finish his/her contest entry or his/her work.
INEPT EBAY SALESMAN FAILJust wrote a "stop selling my art" email to this ebay store from England:INEPT EBAY SALESMAN FAIL10 months ago in Personal More Like This
His sexy excuse for selling stolen art is:
"You can find this image on many wallpapers websites and there is no copyrights on it.
You should start with all these websites who are permitting everybody to download the image and do whatever you like with it."
Oh, la di da.
Let me just go after millions of blogs all around the world that re-post my art and write all of them to delete everything.
Because that's the most logical thing to do.
Essh, some people.
Art salesperson, Why u no respect original artists?
Image sharing sites like imgur and reddit make it super easy to spread art without ever crediting the original.
Even the deviantart DMCA takedown notice is ridiculously long now.
Deviantart, why the fuck are you making it so difficult for me to report stolen art? Is it really necessary for me to fill a freaking application with my place of residence, and click on lik

Vent journal about people copyI have been on dA for a while now...and I have seen my share of drama (mostly by other people thank God).Vent journal about people copy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just can't.....take it anymore.....
Not in the sense that I am going to leave but I'm just fed up with people copying one another.
Okay, lets get one thing straight right now: ORIGINALITY IS DEAD. You cant really claim the rights to any specific part of a character because chances are it's already been done. It should be the character as a whole that is "claimed" if anything.
BUT, if you blatantly copy someone's design, I mean, you saw a picture, and applied aspect of that picture specifically to yours.....I can't say it's theft because, like I said originality is dead, but you are copying and that is bound to stir up trouble when you are caught (because you will eventually be caught)
This is not about the fiasco that happened a few weeks ago, this is about EVERYTHING (and something that happened to me last night which I am still pissed about) !!!
Also, people who copy

And then whenever I look at the people who favorite my shit...
I start thinking about who favorites what and why they favorite it.
Some people favorite everything and I cannot imagine why (though I really appreciate it)
Some people barely favorite at all,
and still others seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth and I miss them because they're usually the ones who used to comment on everything when I was still a noob.
And as I think I realize:
Every single one of you has different preferences and tastes.
I realize, that you people scare the shit out of me sometimes,
But I love you for it :3

I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
