Okay what is that title sorry (ゝ∀･)www
I hope this disturbing imagery haunts you for the remainder of 2013━just kidding.
Foolishness aside, I suppose this is my last Deviantart post for 2012!
I'm sure you've seen enough year's end messages so I'll make mine quick (´艸`)
I want to thank my friends, family and watchers from the bottom of my heart. Without your encouragement I would not have come this far, and without your love and support I would not be able to keep moving myself forward. I thank everyone for making my 2012 a meaningful and fulfilling year, and wish you all nothing but the very best for 2013 and years ahead! Have a wonderful new year, stay safe and healthy, and take care!
A REALLY LONG JOURNAL (but with pictures!)One ordinary afternoon, Waifu Niffy was just pondering to himself, deciding on that night's dinner for when his Hubby comes home.A REALLY LONG JOURNAL (but with pictures!)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Hmm, I guess it's lasagna again tonight, huh?"
When suddenly! A dark shadow looms over Waifu Niffy, taking him by complete surprise.
But before he could utter even the slightest damsel-in-distress girlish scream, the ominous shadow disappeared, and along with it-... Waifu Niffy!
Thankfully Fynn, the good neighbor, heard the commotion of broken dishes and toppled furniture and rushed to the scene right away with his trusty crocodile buddy Kuro.
"Ugh great, were those two at it again-...?"
Kuro, being the clever little detective he is, sniffed around the crime scene and deduced that Waifu Niffy had been wifenapped!
"Smells like Earl Grey..." /Sniffsniff
Kuro urged Fynn to call local police immediately!
"Police Grim, Police Grim! Please help! There has been a-"

Fun Facts about Kings FollyI plan on making some diagrams and what-not to go with my comic but also some background commentary on things such as character development or little tid-bits that might not be explained in the story itself.Fun Facts about Kings Folly2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here is round 1! Fun facts:
"Kings Folly" was originally called "WISH"The panels are colored in rainbow ordered hues. Each panel is a different color. Look carefully.
The main character use to be Cody with Elliot as a secondary main. This is now reversed.Mercrutio was originally scripted with the ability to speak. This was revoked to better suit the story's plot.
Victoria was a character thought up and named by my friend Anthony and was added later in the story development.
Sawyer was originally intended for the role of Victoria but she has assumed a greater role.
Elliot's design is loosely based off of Link from the Legend of Zelda, the rings in his right ear and his sword are the most obvious carry overs.Elliot's sword is a similar shape to the master sword.The shadow cr

What the hell...I know I must have a really miserable life if I care about this new deviantART logo but, seriously... why is DA changing SO MUCH in a few months? The way talented people here waste their time in doing the site a "less artistic" site is annoying as hell. Works slower than ever, it's full of bugs, art thieves... honestly, I see this place more like Facebook now, with all these "statuses" system and all :-/What the hell...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And now they spent who knows how much money/time in changing the logo which is, in my opinion, absolutely unnecessary, knowing all the issues and problems this website should really care for before changing their logo.
Honestly, this place is definitely dying for me. It's been for months and now it's more than ever. Maybe it works better on smartphones but not in an almost 10-years-old computer with Google Chrome.
Yes, ranting a little, it's been a while :_D Missed grumpy-Lehanan?

[updated]Raffles Are Unfair!EDIT: Looks like they updated the FAQ again and now it says that only pay-to-enter kind of raffles/giveaways are not allowed. :')[updated]Raffles Are Unfair!2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is kinda a rant that I wanted to make days ago, but I didn't have time to write this. Also I was waiting for a helpful reply from the help desk that I contacted about a week ago asking many questions and what I got was confusing. That's the only word I can use to describe it.
So, everyone makes raffles and giveaways, people like them. But apparently, you are not allowed to make them anymore. No matter the prize you choose to offer: points, money, pm, art(?), tablet(?), etc. All a no no.
Kind of a summary (my understanding of this whole situation):
da banned lotteries in 2010.
I found a comment from 2013 from a staff stated that point raffles not allowed, but pm raffles are fine.
A week ago, da banned contests and raffles that offer points and money as prizes because of legal issues.

Sharing versus StealingI'm kind of irritated right now and decided to write up a thing about proper art sharing etiquette, something I had hoped was common sense.Sharing versus Stealing9 months ago in Personal More Like This
First things first, so you like an artist and their work and you want to share it with the world. Awesome! More power to you, but be sure you're actually sharing the artwork and not stealing it like an ignorant 12 year old.
A lot of people repost my artwork on the internet and 99% I am of the time perfectly okay with it due to the fact that 99% of users repost it and give me credit.
The right way to repost work:
"Love this picture! It was made by whispwill !"
They reposted it to their account but they gave me credit and linked back to one of my social media outlets, generally my deviantart or tumblr ( http://whispwill.tumblr.com/ ). Do this and you will probably never hear from me ever, in fact it kind of makes me happy to see it.

How to shade prettyI get asked this a lot and it's easy.How to shade pretty7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Don't shade with black.
Something close to black is fine, but so long as it has SOME color in it.
Digital art is awesome but it has pure black. There is no such thing.
Also don't use white for highlights/tinting.

You know you knowwwww
I didn't expect THIS today, so I was really unprepared when my friend OlgaLightfly gave me this video to watch ;www;
I thought it's something like anime ending or opening - we usually change things which we like.
And there was no title, and no preview - I turned it on and....... at first there was a wave of shock, then my heart started to beat faster and hands became trembling. And the moment I saw characters blinking screen by screen I understood.... that I saw only floating screen of my monitor, because I was crying. For real.
I dunno how to describe my feeling in that moment, but it was a really long ashamed and incoherent speech in my and Olya's private dialog in the social network!
She spent 1 month on me, my characters in order to create this ending..... I... I dunno what to say.... Olya is really.........crazy ;wwww;

Comic vs MangaSmall clarification. Kings Folly is a comic/webcomic… it’s not really a manga, reason being:Comic vs Manga1 month ago in Personal More Like This
1. I’m an American. From California. I’ve never even been to another country.
2. It reads left to right because I speak and read English.
3. Pages aren’t 5.5" x 8" they’re drawn to 7" x 10.5" which is the standard American comic size
I have a clearly Japanese influenced style which is where I believe the confusion begins, but it’s not an anime or a manga xD
So when you ask what manga type it is… i have no idea aha… but it is a Fantasy/Adventure/Comedy
My opinion about piracyI posted this on my Facebook a while ago but after last recent issues, I must post it here as well.My opinion about piracy8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm open for discussions but don't expect me to be really talkative because, first, English is not my first language, and second, I'd rather draw more and discuss less.
So, first of all, I'm going to try to explain what's "piracy" for me. I might be wrong but that's the way I see it.
For me, "piracy" involves "business". Money. Someone stealing your work and earning benefits with your efforts. I don't consider someone who buys a CD music/DVD/Comic/Book and posts it in the net FOR FREE a "pirate", nor a theft. Unless they're claiming being the authors or considering they have the right to print/record that stuff and sell it, I don't think they're doing a really "bad work".
Lemme put an example: Recently, my Arena comic was "pirated" and posted online translated into Russian in a popular website there. At the beginning I felt really angry, but then I started to "read" the comments in that
._. yep this is a rant-I admit I never been to an art school or even in art related class. My drawings might not be the best, because I lack technical proportionalities or whatever shits they call them. Tbh, I don't even understand abstract art, like what the fudge is color harmony-? I just choose color because I think they look good with each other. Haha, but I know deep inside I am jealous of people who had a chance to study art and be able to understand what they mean and the meaning behind each color and lines. I couldn't fully understand them. My parents has forbidden me to take any art classes because they want me to go medical field and work for science, which I am a now, a nurse. I draw on my free time~._. yep this is a rant-1 month ago in Personal More Like This
