New York Comic Con*drum roll and a little dance*New York Comic Con3 years ago in Personal More Like This
....I'm going State side!
Yes indeed, I have a place in the Artists Alley at New York Comic Con! They hand select the artist and I couldn't believe when my application was accepted! I will be there for all 4 days starting this Thursday. I'm so excited, I've been so busy lately it hasn't had a chance to sink in. It'll be my first time ever going over to the States, I have a couple of days after the convention to myself, so I'll get to explore New York a bit at least. Can anyone recommend things I should do/see there? Especially on the look out for lesser known excitements. It's the furthest I've traveled for a convention, and with outgoings so high I'm really not in this one for the money Apparently half my dA visitors come from the US, and it's been my dream for a long time to go out and meet some of you! I'll do a journal cataloging all the funz when I'm back so you all can enjoy
So who's going to be there? *crosses fingers*

(Of course, the people on Quizazz/Quotev probably already read it, but any England lovers on here haven't been on Quizazz/Quotev so they wouldn't be able to read it.)
Soooooo~ Who would read it? Here's just a little excerpt from the story to give you a taste.
Rain is falling.
A storm has arisen.
The (h/c)-haired girl in the black raincoat stood over the unconscious blonde man with the thick eyebrows. The girl felt a crazed smirk come upon her (s/c) face.
'This is my chance,' the words echoed in her head. 'For our love to blossom.'
To YouHow to start...To You3 years ago in Personal More Like This
and those two words really don't seem enough to express my gratitude.
I've just spent the last week going back though my DA messages, replying to notes, comments, checking out peoples art. (and I've still got a few more to do XD) That little thing called life got in the way of me keeping on top of my incoming DA messages, and so I had a few good months worth to read through again. Hundreds I replied to, thousands I read through; every single one, and I appreciate each. Many people just like to leave one word, others pour out their heart. I am infinitely amazed at how many people show their kindness towards my art.
I also made a collection of the art people have said I helped inspire them to make: http://destinyblue.deviantart.com/favourites/51860413 how crazy cool is that... to feel you've inspired people...
I'm not someone who is very good at writing, drawing has always been the thing which has let me express myself best, it's the thing I enjoy doing
Sins of an ArtistI've been under fire recently for having the audacity to admit publicly that improving my art has never been, and never was, an ultimate goal of mine. Apparently that's like committing some sort of mortal sin in the art community. I've had trouble expressing myself about it too, because brushing off improvement for improvement sake makes me look like I'm uncaring, egocentric, and stubborn. But after a recent post I was given much more clarity in understanding the issue and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.Sins of an Artist3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the recent exchange I was basically told this: "If doing what you love isn't about dedicating your life to improving your art, you aren't an artist."
Maybe I'm old fashioned, but making art has never been solely about the technical expertise. Even in college, outside the handful of foundation courses you take in freshman year, perfection of the craft is often secondary to concepts and ideas and your ability to evoke feelings and emotions in your audience.
Mommy hold me :(I just had the scare of my life. I am on vacation at my aunt's place to visit family. And Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood was on tonight. So I had to go done stairs to watch it cause the tv in the room the I'm staying can only play movies cause it does not have cable. So I go down stairs with my iPhone light on ( app ) and I see the floor it covered in crickets all sizes. I am HORRIFIED of all types of bugs. Its not even funny. I had a dream about a bug landing in my mouth and I was about to have a heart attack. And I was shacking sooooo bad. And NEVER in my life have I EVER shacken like that......unwell now -_- . So I walk in to the room with the tv.......again floor covered in crickets all sizes. Turn on the tv. And my phone light is still on. I try to watch fmab but I can't help but stare at the floor making sure the bugs are not close to me. And I found my aunts shoes to help me with that. And as soon as the show was over. I'm like ' oh crap I have to walk in through the bugs againMommy hold me :(3 years ago in Personal More Like This

It was revealed earlier this month that CNN had in place an “ultimate closing message” in the event of the apocalypse actually arriving (and there being enough time to change the tape). It was footage of a military band playing “Nearer My God to Thee”:
This.... would have been a really crap thing to permanently sign out on.
The BBC obviously thought so, too, as in light of that story they asked their readers/listeners what they would like to hear played across the service, should doomsday occur.
Most responses were musical numbers, such as REM’s “It’s the End of the World as we know it (and I feel fine)” and Queen’s “Don’t stop me now”, but other’s were a little more deranged, such as the final clip of a Warner Bros cartoon, with Porky Pig saying “That’s all folks!”.

Phil Fish was DOXXED (for standing up for Zoe Quinn) and all his personal information was leaked onto the internet, including SSI info, home address, bank records, etc. As a result, Phil decided to leave gaming forever and is now selling off the IP rights to FEZ and Polytron.

Meanwhile 4chan/Reddit have decided that Phil Fish WASN’T hacked and that he faked the whole thing because... ? 4chan also called the FBI on Phil because they believe fake hacking your own account is a “federal offense.” Gotta love how 4channers are more willing to make up and believe a conspiracy theory than admit they made a mistake...

but don't allow yourself to become deflated.
Galileo was seen as outrageous during his time - but he was right all along.
So grab the nearest duck and follow your dreams.
Like this banana who decided to be a carrot did.
Or this pug who wanted to become a bumble bee.
Or this other pug who became a loaf of bread.
Even if its a crazy pigeon man.
Just don't be chicken,
Or your dreams will be shattered.
Don't let anyone stand in your way.

I don’t know a huge amount about the “New 52” take on the DC universe (I stopped paying attention to DC’s output when they changed their logo to look like a half-unwrapped Acme magnet) but if the Justice League: War animation is any kind of summary, I’m glad I’ve not wasted my time.
Batman now seems to think it’s impolite if he doesn’t tell everyone who he is, Wonder Woman has taken to talking like a really, really bad Shakespearean actor and Superman is a dick.
Ignoring the animation’s terrible narrative, what struck me like a rancid kipper in the face was how god-awful the character designs were. In this instance; particularly Darkseid’s. Yeah, he wore a bucket on his head in the past, but it worked! It added to his menace as a laser-firing brick of doom. You took one look at him and you knew who he was.
Watch Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. THAT version of Darkseid is an ic

Wondering why I let things get so far back then and now have moments where i want nothing more than to be someone else. Then I remember I'm not that girl anymore. That there are people who love me. That I have to be strong for me, and love myself. I cant be that teenager anymore. I am going to be 25 in less than a month. Im not 16, no matter how much my mind slinks back at times. Despite my social inadequacies, I will press forward. I will be strong. No one can stop me from taking back my life...except me. Its time for a change. A life bettering...change.
