Fisheye Placebo Cosplay DerpsI had the honor of derping with these hilarious Fisheye Placebo cosplayers at Sakura-con!Fisheye Placebo Cosplay Derps2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Good times. Good times.
See you guys again at Fanime! ♥
Frey, Alex, and Vance cosplayed by Shotalicious, Sugarlat, Liarino. I'm cameoing as rabbit ear fingers.
And then I drew them XD
Jen and Cocoa by Haruu-chan and LeekFish
ART MAJORS FTW
Robin and Toby copsplayed by usagi2ranpha and Little-islander
Alex has a plastic gun. Toby is going ARAFDHAJGJ. Robin is confused. Noting makes sense and all is right with the world.
The level of maturity is overwhelming.
They wanted to cosplay outerwear and underwear so they even made Vance and Frey's panties. Not only that, they also made extra ones for me to wear XD
Last but not least, amazing cosplay and photography by KashinoRei and Andy-K. They are in Germany so I wasn't able to meet them at Sakura-con, but hopefully I'll be able to visit a European con in the future
Is anything working right now? :IThere seems to be a glitch that won't let a majority of my watchers get notified of my updates. I noticed this after posting and realizing there is significantly reduced traffic. I logged into my other account :iconknites: and sure enough, the newest update did not appear in the other account's inbox. Some people have reported receiving the update, while many others reported not receiving it. I decided to make sure and made a poll asking people if they received the lasted drawing in their inbox, and guess what? There's another glitch affecting the polls so most people aren't getting notified of the poll either... =_= Or at least the newest poll is not showing up in my other account either.

1000 Words, Sincerest ApologiesFor those who pre-ordered copies of 1000 Words, I'm deeply sorry that your order has not arrived yet. It has been an extremely stressful week for me to finally receive the shipment from the printers at Active Media Publishing http://www.activemediapublishing.com/ after such a long delay which cost us to miss Fanime, only to find out that the books were far below the expected quality.1000 Words, Sincerest Apologies3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not only did the colors come out neon yellow and even green in some parts, there were large ink smudges on 50% of the books, while another 50% had uneven spines.
This is how the books came out. Neon yellow.
Note: colors may vary depending on your monitor screen so it may not look too bad on certain computers, but it looks bad in real life.
And then there are smudges that you can find on the right side of every other book. The scanner actually made the smudges less obvious, but again, it looks very bad in real life.
Finally, half of the books had varying degrees of uneven printing on the spines that is symm

The Concept List Challenge
Some of you have noted that I often mention my concept list in the Artists Comments of deviations. Yes, there is an actual list. And yes, I have been essentially going down that list and doing every concept that I can. However, I get distracted easily either by new concepts or butterflies so Im still not even close to finishing this list. And as I figure, I probably will not finish conceptualizing all these ideas unless I get a little help
So now, here is the challenge for you:
Pick any of the concepts listed below and conceptualize it in any way you want in any medium you choose (photography is preferred but all mediums are accepted)
Thank You!Thank you guys so much for the deviousness award! But it's really not just this award, thank you all for the support through out the years.Thank You!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!
1000 Words and Knite Shipping and Tracking InfoHey guys, it has come to my attention that a lot of people still have not received their 1000 Words book orders, or even some Knite products. There was a huge delay with the book due to printing issues, but all the books should have been mailed out a long time ago which means if you still have not received your order, something might be wrong. The case is especially true for people living in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. It's possible that some orders are delayed in transit or lost due to the storm. But no need to worry, we will make sure you get your order1000 Words and Knite Shipping and Tracking Info3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Two Hearts (Much Afraid)There are at least two sides to every person; we're never our most genuine self based on what we project to the world, we're not simply the pranks we do-- or the smiles we force; we're never just the bad or the good we choose to show--- So saying we have dire conditions shouldn't ever be a surprise or an indicator of inferiority, because when you come to the realization that you have a problem, you are progressing a bit further down the path then if you continue to deny-- be it out of pride, intimidation, or other. We are life lessons and flawed perfections and different shades of grey. Sometimes there are multiple sides to those that may be a bit similar to myself; We have hunger, passion, and rejection with a bittersweet liquid in our eyes. This is the duality of the heart.Two Hearts (Much Afraid)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

"Would you care to accompany me to the veranda for a cigarette?" he asked. "There's one on the second floor, and it's getting a bit stuffy in here."
I agreed, and soon we were standing out on the lanai, elbows leaning upon the cool iron, the brisk summer wind rustling the ivy that crawled up the side of the railing. Klaus pulled a pack of cigarettes from his waistcoat pocket along with a lighter. Imprinted in the copper were the letters K&K, and suddenly I wanted to ask him what had happened the other day—what Heinrich had said about choosing the Gypsy over him. I didn't have time to ask though, because K

1. Being Gay Is Not Natural
And real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning, tattoos, piercings and silicon breasts...
2. Gay Marriage Will Encourage People To Be Gay
In the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3. Legalizing Gay Marriage Will Open The Door To All Kinds Of
People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has
legal standing and can sign a marriage contract. Lamps are next.
4. Straight Marriage Has Been Around A Long Time And Hasn't Changed At All
Hence why women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
