Meditation on my 2nd D.D. When you consider that I just recieved my second Daily Deviation with the bird at the upper left of the page, and that my first was the monochrome dove below, you see very far into me, and as one photographer so aptly put, to "the layers of love in my soul." Roger Tory Peterson said that we watch birds because of their, "vividness," coining a word that didn't exist until then, but the only word that has ever described for me what their aliveness does to my heart. For that reason, I took to trying to capture that feeling for all I was worth, at a time when my life was due to end. "Whatever you do," said the oncologist, "don't go outside in the winter time. The cold will not mix well with chemotherapy." But I sat outside in my bathrobe and overcoat, in spite of him, all covered in snow, looking at birds through a lens, saying to myself, "while my days last, I'll do as I please." And birds, common birds, were my cure. I tMeditation on my 2nd D.D.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

So we found out today I'm pregnant lol so we're extremely happy. We're still working on the house and now we have a deadline XD well... my husband does anyway. I'll just be sitting on the table working on commissions and art from now on since I can't be around chemicals or drywall powder anymore.
My list is still there and it's slowly shrinking thankfully. I'm gonna be updating my gallery again soon, if my costumers allow me to submit the work anyway.
Thank you all for your incredible patience and comprehension. Life sucks sometimes (although right now it's going pretty awesome!)

Bueno quiero avisarles de algo que se que les va a gustar mucho ^^. Seguramente se fijaron en que muchas de las actividades oficiales realizadas por communityrelations estan únicamente en idioma Inglés por lo que siempre van dirigidas especialmente para los Deviants americanos y de otros paises donde hablan Inglés. Aunque nosotros los Hispanos también podríamos y nos gustaria participar (ninguna regla nos impide participar en los eventos oficiales de dA), no podemos hacerlo ya que nos lo impide la barrera del idioma. Como no sabemos Inglés se nos hace difícil entender de que tratan dichas actividades. Debido a eso decidí que de alguna manera los Hispanos también deberíamos integrarnos en esta celebración y es con una actividad especial!!
Como dice el titulo, no es mentira, tienen la oportunidad de ganar una Membresia Premium y Puntos en esta actividad. Ahora preguntaran: ¿Como hiciste una actividad si no tienes Puntos? . Bueno como habran notado

Birthday JournalYesterday, I had one of my best birthdays ever.Birthday Journal3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But the story starts way back in December during an anime convention. I thought my OC SPOT deserved more love, so I approached our resident artists who were doing sketch commissions and asked them if they were willing to draw a mecha dog. Most of them said no, so I, dejected, decided to doodle him myself:
A few minutes later, kirej7 drew his version of SPOT for me, waaarf!
Time passed, and when my birthday was nearing, I accidentally caught a glimpse of SnT2k's work in progress of SPOT on Dennis's hoverboard. He posted the "final" version of it soon after, saying that hiding it was useless.
Deep inside, I felt happy because my wish somehow came true. What happened after was beyond my expectations.
January 14, my gift from awesome artist and [animal] master stryler arrived. I was delighted as I never expected it to arrive within a week from when it was shipped from Malaysia.

FAQHow did you get started?FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've always sculpted as a hobby and am completely self taught. In April of 2010 I decided I wanted to finally try my hand at selling my work. I started posting things on etsy and DA and veeery slowly people started noticing. My first couple of years relied heavily on commission work.
How are you so popular? I just started making sculptures too but nobody notices or buys them?
It took well over two years before I was actually getting fulltime work with decent pay. It took a TON of hard work. I sold my work for far less than I should have, because I needed customers. I also did a few shows, to get some exposure by handing out business cards. I made things as often as I could, posted often, and made sure it was very clear I was open for commissions. I posted links on everything. You have to make it easy for people to find the info they need! I posted mainly on etsy and DA, then made a fanpage on facebook very late in the game. Probably sh

Bulbasaur's IdeaBulbasaur's Idea2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
One day in the Kanto region, Bulbasaur was hanging out with his friends, Charmander and Squirtle. He and his friends were experts at hiding in tall grass, making them rare Pokémon. After Poke-School, they check with their parents to see if they can go to each other's dens and play. Then they would play stuff like Poke-Predator where the predator(Arbok) chases the prey(Rattata) and tags them. Once they are tagged, they are called "eaten" and will start over as the predator. Bulbasaur enjoyed the daily routine, but one day he wanted something more.
"Charmander!" Bulbasaur yelled to get his friend.
"What?" Charmander replied.
"Hey, guys!" said Squirtle, cutting in to the conversation.
"Hi, Squirtle." said both, disappointed. You see, Squirtle is the "Don't let him hear our conversations!" in the group. People hate him butting in whenever possible.
"Anyway..." said Bulbasaur, eying Squirtle just in case. "I have an idea. In addition to P

Video Game SpritesNow I had addressed this issue in another News article of mine regarding common pixel art miscategorizations http://news.deviantart.com/article/92257/ however, it seems that there is still confusion regarding the official video game pixel art and DA.Video Game Sprites6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To be very clear, the official Video Game sprites which includes sprite sheets, animations made with sprite sheets, and any edits made of said sprites, are not permitted on DeviantArt at all.
Additionally, Video Game pixel art cannot be used as a base for original pixel art, such as Pokemon Trainers made from the official game sprites or classic Mega Man sprites used as a base for other characters. I know that many people put a lot of effort into their video game sprite edits, and some may look very original, but it still does not make it original art.
The fact is that if you do not have explicit permission to modify, publish and/or redistribute from the owner of the game in question, then you cannot upload video game sprite sheets or modi

I will be leaving dA for two years..Hey my awesome watchers and friends!I will be leaving dA for two years..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, yes, like the title says, I will be leaving dA for two years as of the 18th of April, so in about a week. This is a tough decision, as dA has become an important part of my life, because I am actually trying to build up a living with my art. But you should know, that I am a Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. ) and I am 18, close to 19, so I am going on a mission. That means I will be going to the Alpine region (Switzerland, Austria, South-Germany) and talk to the people about what I believe in. You have to know, that this is something I carefully considered and I have a strong belief in God and so I want to share the joy my religion has brought me. The mission will be for two years and I wont have the time to upload any art to dA. My sister PixieCold will keep you up to date through journals on my page here, so you know what I am doing and how my life is going!
