I've been working on them like crazy for the last week or so, (which is why I haven't really been on da.. D: ) I'll be uploading and replying again soon though! After I get sleep that is.. it's 1am here o.o.. I'm just so glad it's over though! I never want to list out hours of every extracurricular or answer a bunch of supplements again!
CondolencesI cannot even coherently express how upset and outraged I was when I read about the Connecticut shooting, much less imagine how devastated the families must be right now. The victims were completely innocent kids who still had a whole life in front of them and teachers who dedicated their lives to educate. These were families who had plans to visit grandparents, or go somewhere nice for Christmas, but were instead met with tragedy. :,( I just cannot comprehend in the slightest why anybody would resort to doing something so horrific and unjustifiable. As much as I detest the shooter though, I'm also sorry he was driven to the state. Grievances to his family, who not only lost him but the mother as well.Condolences2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't usually make journals like these, but it seemed appropriate. I just want to pay my condolences now to the families and anybody else who was affected by the incident. May they find peace.

Really though, this has made me so giddy and happy it's almost ridiculous! xD I'd just come home from a long, dreary, rainy day of school, and I wasn't expecting anything remotely nice to happen and I certainly wasn't expecting a daily deviation! So this has just been such an awesome surprise!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to xthumbtakx and princepal for suggesting and featuring me!! Of course, thanks so much to anybody who has faved/ commented on my work as well! ^.^
And also, to my dearest watchers, thank you all for being so wonderful! I don't go spamming your pages with thank-yous, but please know that I really really appreciate all your support and I'm ever so glad that you find my art watch-worthy! You guys keep me inspired and drawing, and for that I am ever so grateful. You're probably sick of hearing all this grateful talk from me, so I'll just end here. A
LHA CONTEST 2012: OPPOSITESWhat’s up?LHA CONTEST 2012: OPPOSITES3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As many of you will remember from last year’s festivities, August 13th is a very special day for lefties everywhere! Left Handers’ Day is a day where we can all get together freely and talk about our scissor preferences, smudged writing and how many times we’ve been heard: “Hey! Are you left handed?”.
Of course, we can do that any day. But on the 13th of August we have an awesome excuse. And once again, we’re providing you with the perfect excuse to put on that thinking cap and grab your art supplies to create something awesome for the LHA 2012 contest!
There are two sides to every coin: good and evil, day and night, law and chaos, left and right. This year’s theme is all about opposites, however you want to interpret them! Your piece can include any and all opposites, limited to only your imagination. It doesn’t have to relate to left-handedness, but just contrasting themes and o

art theft spread aroundhttp://vk.com/art.ideasart theft spread around2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I guess some of you might have already seen this in loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses loish, andrahilde , Apofiss, andaglas and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist

A letter for those who've suffered sexual abuseI wrote a piece alluding to my own sexual abuse, and I need to say something more about that. I need to speak to the people who've had these inexcusable experiences, more in depth and with a little more conviction (which I don't want art to salve, because my thoughts need to be hurting and raw). Therefore, I am saying it here. And I might get a lot of crap for it, and not all of you will agree with me, but this is something I feel so strongly about. And so I will speak my mind. If anyone is in need of more relation, then I don't know if this will do that but here is my experience: http://fav.me/d7x2uhuA letter for those who've suffered sexual abuse5 months ago in Personal More Like This

Simple Q&A!Simple Q&A!5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Q: What is a Shimeji?
A: Shimeji (しめじ) is a little desktop buddy that roams your screen. The original site actually calls it "the world's most useless mascot", which will probably give you a idea of it's purpose. It is a cute, but also useless program. Not to be confused with the mushroom, which you can find here.
Q: Is a Shimeji available for Mac users?
A: No, not yet, sorry. Yes!
Q: What does a Shimeji do?
A: They sit randomly, walk and crawl about your monitor, and sometimes double themselves with or without your permission. Sometimes if you minimize a window, your Shimeji may try to take it away.
Q: What does the Shimeji Menu say?
A: It says this, in order:
"Add one" - Click this and one more Shimeji will appear. The more times you click it, the more Shimejis you get.
"Come here!" - All of the Shimeji will run over to your mouse
Introduction to Printing Techniques: Part 1IntroductionIntroduction to Printing Techniques: Part 16 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Printmaking is a process where multiple original images, prints, are made by printing from one original source onto paper or other chosen print surface. The original plate is called matrix and it can be made of various materials. The image is transferred from the matrix using different printmaking techniques either by hand or by using a press.
The prints created by printmaking process are original artworks having an element of originality, so they are not considered as copies. Each print is signed, titled and numbered by the artist. The impressions printed from the same matrix are forming an edition.
This article is divided into two parts and it introduces shortly some printmaking techniques with artwork examples.
The Part 1 introduces relief printing techniques such as linocut and woodcut.
The Part 2 introduces intaglio printing
