why did you have to get pregnant again
why did you have to go and marry a man you barely know
why did could not see all the things that i see
when my world was upside down, you would just look at me and say everything will be ok
why did you lie
everything was not ok
just because you couldn't see what was going on did not mean my life was perfect
hey mom, do you remember all the pictures that we took with step dad
have you took a good look at my smile
i only liked him for a short while
and then things changed
but did you take the time to open your eyes and see
why do you think i moved out when i was 18
i told you i didnt like him
but all you saw was money
was that money really more important than your little girl
i guess it was because you let me leave
things got better
life was brighter
but i missed you everyday
i didnt want to leave
but i wasnt about to stay
in house of abuse
both physical and mental

Just Wanna Put This Out There...I am a youtube gamer. Not a super popular one, hell, not even a normal popular one. I'm a small channel. But I've been on dA for three years now and have made myself a nice little niche, so I know a thing or two. Hear me out.Just Wanna Put This Out There...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have this great vision for my youtube channel. It involves you. It is centered around you. I play games, yeah, but that's just a part of it. I want to be supportive and become a beacon of comfort and hope for a community largely ignored or just written off as a whole. People who are hurting. People in not so good places.
I'll just say it.
People like me.
You can vent to me about things. Everything. Anything. Who am I but some anon on the internet? I won't judge. I never judge people. I can offer you comfort in a world that mostly looks down on us because we have self-made scars. I'd even go so far as to offer personalized short videos just so you can watch it and know that somebody really does care about what you're going through and wants you to make it o

Honorable mention belongs to Marxpup's entry Cheery Chick costume for Amaru
The 3rd place entry belongs to Artistic-Twist with her Miss Military costume for Drayke

An Important Message I'd Like You All to Read.. :)Hi all,An Important Message I'd Like You All to Read.. :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wanted to first apologize for yet again being so behind on keeping up with messages... I know a lot of you are waiting on replies, notes, and I know there's some GORGEOUS art that I need to comment on as well. I have one week from now until my move and I've been working like crazy, trying to get enough money together, packing, and planning...
However, I do have VERY exciting news and a little important message to share...
This past Sunday, August 18th, I received a call from a man saying he thought he had found my beloved missing cockatiel, Skye. I've had quite a few of these since I lost her, especially since I was offering $1,200 for her safe return (That might seem like a "waste of money" to some --especially since I'm struggling financially, but to anyone who knows how important she is to me, you'd know I would give EVERYTHING I own to have her back if I could). Anyhow, the man offered to bring the bird by so I could take a look. He was a homeless man, so my first thought

On: Illustration, Comics, and Story TellingDon’t suck -- PKOn: Illustration, Comics, and Story Telling3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to say first of all that sometimes I get people asking, or rather complaining, “why does it seem like the comics always get a better score? This group seems so focused on comics. What if I just want to draw pictures?”
Well, that ends up tying into narrative illustration, which is a pretty hard thing to do right if you’re used to drawing single shots of your character against a plain, white background. Most people end up doing comics because it seems easier right away: the characters can talk, you can set the scene, it doesn’t require a little description at the bottom...
But, even comics require some know-how to pull off really well. It’s just harder to pull off illustrations in this story-based environment, because comics make it a little less apparent when it’s not doing a very good job at telling that story.
But, I’ll get to comics second.

I don't really know how to tell you this, but I'm in love with your cat. I think I realized it when I saw the purple monkey at the mental hospital and I saw you hit on my boyfriend. I'm sure you're cowardly enough to understand that you need a sex-change. I'm returning your couch cushions but keeping your glass eye as a memory. You should also know that I love your sweet, sweet ass and I love Oprah.
Best of luck on the sex change,

Publishing ScamsCopied and pasted from my blog since deviantART's been having this problem for a while now. I had meant to post something on this matter back in October since it was when I noticed more and more "publishers" like this popping up on the site, but never got around to it. Of course, with all of these unprofessional publishers coming out of the woodwork again recently, I thought I'd share what I shared on my blog here.Publishing Scams2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What is a scam publisher?
Essentially, a scam publisher is a press that cheats authors into believing that they are getting traditionally published by their rules and guidelines. However, if you read the fine print, you'll see that "traditionally" publishing you is not at all what's happening. This can range from promising royalties which never come, making you pay a fee to be published, or even stem from lack of professionalism. While the term "scam" usually means forcing you to pay, there are many other

Something all Paint Tool SAI users need to knowPLEASE NOTE: This will only work for people who have tablets. This SAI tip will not work with mouses or touch pads.Something all Paint Tool SAI users need to know3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok so I just feel like I really need to point this out since a ton of people have no clue that you can do this in SAI. xD and it's really important when it comes to lineart.
Ever heard of the stabilizer/smoothing option? For those who haven't, it's an option in SAI where you can set it to a certain number (the scale is from 0 through S-7, 0 being the fastest and most unstable cursor speed). Here's a picture of it for people who can't find where it is in the program: http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg23/scaled.php?server=23&filename=fullscreencapture442009.jpg&res=medium
The farther down the scale you go, the slower the cursor will move, making your lines MUCH smoother. I usually have mine set to S-5 during lineart, and at about 10 - 15 when doing sketching.
Anyway, just pointing that out. :3 Hope it helps some people.
