UPDATE: Bracer Raffle #2 =DUPDATE: Hey Friends, I get to go on a surprise camping trip this weekend! Unfortunately that means I won't be able to call the raffle until Monday or Tuesday, but to be fair the raffle will still end on Saturday! So all those entering must enter no later than tomorrow night! I will see you all again next week!UPDATE: Bracer Raffle #2 =D2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It has been a crazy busy summer! So, busy that I have not nearly been as active with my photography and clothing as I would like. I also have been promising more bracer raffles for the future but have gotten behind schedule with them! So to start off the slide into fall I would like to host another bracer raffle!
So here is how it works:
-Favorite this Journal. (this is how I will keep track of the contestants)
-You must be watching me. (This is a gift to my friends, not passerby's! It is ok to start watching me now. )
If you are the winner, you will get to pick either one pair
Inspiring Digital Artworks Try browsing dA. Many of the most popular artworks ever are uploaded in Digital Art gallery. Then have a look at some of the most popular digital works in the last hours and compare them to some other popular deviations from different categories. What do you notice? - What i did a long time ago: there's a difference between them; digital artworks usually have more views, more comments, more faves. And it made me wonder "Why is that?" - Is it because many people are fans of fantasy characters and great landscapes? Is it because they enjoy looking at an enhanced figure or at a reality-defying picture?Inspiring Digital Artworks3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Of course they do, but that's not the only reason. It's mostly because people appreciate good work and stunning details, which are sometimes harder or impossible to achieve through other arts. It is also because this is the medium that imposes no limits to your power of creation - you ca

Fixed the blunder in the title. Herp derp. There are 250 points up for grabs, not 200.
Less people are asking me for points now, so I think I shall hold a contest.
Favorite this journal.
Comment. Actually say something. No spam. I don't mind if it's just a "Hello!" It doesn't need to be meaningful or anything, just no "HUDFSDFHUDDUSH" comments. They will not count.
If you are not watching me at the moment, then you must watch me.
ONE ACCOUNT ONLY. Listen, I don't want you to enter mule accounts or plz accounts. That is utterly unfair.
[Bullet; Blue]This contest ends on the 31 of August (according to dA time. Time zones are annoying).

Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty EditionToday, March 1st is Self-Harm Awareness Day, but I think it deserves more than a day. I won't say much about it because other people have already published wonderful articles about it, I recommend that you read Nichrysalis's Fears vs Dreams and BeccaJS' Recovery, both contain a lot of wonderful information and share touching experiences.Self-Harm Awareness 2013 Crafty Edition2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What I can tell you is this: self-harm is a problem that is often not recognized. It takes many forms, forms that are not recognized even by the person committing it. Self-harm is always a problem, even if you think you have it under control or that it's not serious, it is. If you are currently committing any form of self-harm, or if you suspect anyone else is, reach out for help. Both articles contain links and resources to guide you, and I'm here to talk :iconheartorangeplz:.

So I have a bunch of points leftover from my birthday and some very generous donaters. I don't really know what to do with them, I don't feel like buying cake badges and I don't really want to buy any prints. So I decided, why not host my first giveaway!

However, there are some rules and other info, please read them.

Vacation paranoia // these feels.OK TODAY I REVEAL MY SECRET PROBLEM WITH Vacation paranoiaVacation paranoia // these feels.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now Vacation Patanoia could mean different things to different people, but to me it basicly means i think about the worst possible situations i could get myself into..and trying to avoid them. As an example I'll make you a list to try to get my point across: (we are going on a very big ferry boat/ driving to the sunshine coast)
(1. Resisting the urge to jump off the ferry. (I always have had that thought for some reason. Even when i was little i always thought about doing that and what would happen)
(2. Dying in a car crash.
(3. Dying if the boat sinks.
(me and Kaden are going to be swimming in the ocean mabye) (4. so drowning in the ocean// getting carried out then being feasted apon by orcas or killer seals (LOL)
(5. Dying in a car crash at the same time as the boat sinks
(6. Dying in general
(7. falling and cracking my head open on the rocks at the beach

Creative Week: Giveaway + IntroductionWhat is Creative Week?Creative Week: Giveaway + Introduction2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Every year, I take a week away from my job to do nothing but photoshoots, in order to challenge myself and improve my skills as a photographer. Despite working for the best company in the world, my career is not in photography. This sometimes makes it difficult to find the right kind of time and inspiration to capture what I want. My annual 'Creative Week,' is a way for me to do what I love without the worry of heading into work the next day. I can focus on my creativity, and nothing more. Every year I make sure to up the ante, and this year I'll be working with a lot more talent than I have in the past, on bigger productions.
This is my third Creative Week, and similar to those in the past, I will be partnering with the wonderful Miki Sarroca (WingedInfinity). She will be serving as a make up artist, model, and she's done an incredible job of assisting me with organizing these shoots.

OH YES. WITH LOTS OF WONDERFUL THINGS TO SHARE
SO...I'll just explain this through a day listing system xD
Kaden and his mom /and uncle picked me up and 8:00AM and we drove to the ferrie past North Vancouver. We waited for less than 40 minutes then were on our way to the Sunshine Coast. 8D (we had lots of fun on the ferrie)
driving to the beach house took forever BUT WHEN WE GOT THERE.
I freaked out... i love the ocean.. and we were right on it.
It was lovely. Me and Kaden ran around on the beach for awhile then went into town to get food.
//We also went to the dollar store and me and Kaden got random craft things XD it was funny. ((i also got a storm trooper ...he's #45.... his name is Philis.)) OH and lots of glowsticks.. we got lots of glowsticks. That night we had a crazy rave downstairs.
It was very great. //that was after we talked about break up stuff for awhile.

So.. i guess all of you know Black Rock Shooter~ I watched the anime.. and.. its awesome.. it SO awesome!
I love the Outfits in this anime so much, but i dont want any of my characters to be a BRS OC since all of my characters are (well with some exceptions) Kuroshitsuji OCs so i thought of giving Sorano a new Outfit (and a matching staff of course!).. In this epic Black Rock Shooter style..

9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR1. - Watercolors are FAST. They dry fast and you can finish a painting within one day. Given that you learn with every finished painting, you learn fast!9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Watercolors don't stink. No dangerous chemical fumes, no headaches, usable around little children. Isn't that a wonderful reason!
3. - Watercolors are easy to clean. You don't make a lot of mess, and if you do, what water fouled, water will clean.
4. - There is no need for white paints. All the lightness is already given by your paper.
5. - Watercolors are practical to use outdoors. All your tools will fit into a small pocket.
6. - Watercolors are RELAXING. It must be the flooding, but whenever working with water and brush, your mind is set on ease.
7. - Watercolors bring transparent, delicate and ethereal results. Sometimes even a few well-lead brush strokes deliver sightly accomplishment.
8. - Watercolors are DIVERSE. They can be used in many very different ways and are ea
