Animal Crossing! I need buddies.Hey guys! Thanks for all the positive feedback on the baby name and her little dragon avatar. Ember is gonna just be surrounded by dragons when she gets hereAnimal Crossing! I need buddies.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it might be a while before the next sale. I'm working on a few personal projects at the moment, as well as dinking around with designs for some zazzle stuff. There will be lots of cute little drawings like Baby Ember in various colors for pins and keychains and stuff, along with some other interesting designs for various items. It's really funny watching Matty observe me working in Photoshop on this stuff. He's a graphic designer so he uses it everyday, and is basically a photoshop expert, so to him I do everything slow or the hard way. You can just see his fingers itching to steal the mouse away from me so he can do it better. I actually used to be very good at photoshop back in college, but have since forgotten most of the tricks. I just use the paint brush to draw things occasionally, or some very simple setting

Anyway, I just wanted to say, if you have a message for me to please send it to my YouTube PMs? It's a LOT easier for me to see them there, I can't gaurantee I can get to them all, but I definitely am doing my best to respond to them on that end of the spectrum.
Okay! Okay. Good. So TL;DR: Send messages to my YouTube PM box, not here.
Thank you! :]

The Muse AbidesAsk any artist about “emptiness” and they’ll tell you about the constant recurring nightmarish emptiness they must face down almost every day as a part of their vocation: the blank space that they must fill. Whether he’s a painter facing a blank canvas or she’s a poet facing a blank computer screen, the blank space awaiting transformation at the hand of the artist can be the loneliest and cruelest place on earth.The Muse Abides3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

I've read a lot of opinions and realized I was wrong on some points, and thats fine.
I made it to get a second opinion on things either way, thanks for the input
I took the time to try and respond to most of you, but I didn't expect it to get so much comments.

Gosh. That means I was 16 when I made my account? After talking about it with a friend of mine in Mr Ewing's applied bio chem class?
So much has changed that it's almost impossible for me to mention one single thing that has stayed the same.
Though, all for the better. How wonderful~

Important! Gallery Reshuffle / Please Take NoteEdit 2 Seriously, guys, I wasn't joking when I mentioned the amount of uploads. I repeat, if you don't want individual notifications then please turn on stacks in your inbox. If you'd prefer not to get any notifications at all for my individual graphcs then please unwatch my Scraps. Doing either of these things means that you'll still get notifications for journals and artwork but you don't have to bother with my graphics if you're not interested in them. End Edit 2Important!

Daily Deviation #6Well, wasn't that the most wonderful surprise! I was just checking dA before I started work this morning and saw a comment about a DD. At first I thought 'But memory f i s h hasn't been featured as a Daily Deviation' - and then I woke up a bit and realised that obviously it had now. I really just wanted to be excited all over the internet but unfortunately I had to start work as soon as I found out. You have no idea of the agony I endured not being able to flail on dA until some 9 or so hours later.Daily Deviation #610 months ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you so, so much for the feature, cinyu! It truly means the world to me.
I actually feel strangely emotional and just want to cling to you all while I'm desperately sobbing. Don't worry, I shan't do that - but I want to, just so you know. I just... I'm constantly overwhelmed by the really kind reactions to my artwork. And completely humbled by them.
I love you guys. I real
Staying aliveFew things running simultaneously through my head today, and in an attempt to jump start my body, ordered a glass of kopipeng xiu dai (iced milk coffee less sugar) with breakfast.Staying alive1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Realizing on my way back home that I hadn't yet taken my meds meant a possibility of another tachycardic episode, I quickly popped the pills and then....got to thinking. I have been popping at least 1 pill at least once a day ever since I was 15 and diagnosed with idiopathic hypertension.
It might seem an insignificant act, this daily ritual, people take vitamins all their life. Being depressed meant I had consciously remind myself that I'm lucky that these chronic ailments can be kept in check, and that I am far, far luckier than those who are worse off than I. However, on my lower days, the dirty horrible thoughts and comparisons creep in, and I resent having to deal with a mostly automatic and subconscious act of swallowing these pills.
Depression does that to me. Minutes slow down to a c

Mother's Day Sale May 4thBah! I started this journal a few hours ago, got sidetracked by my rats fighting, and then completely spaced that I never finished. I swear, these are the most dramatic, fighty rats I've ever had. Now all 3 of them are in their own cages for various reasons. Ugh! Now I have to find time to get all 3 out individually every day... cuz I totally have all sorts of time for that just lying around... why you gotta be so complicated, ratties?! Anyone in southern california want to adopt a single rat? The one I want to adopt out (a big fluffy blue dumbo) is really sweet to people, but plays badly with other rats. He is the drama causer, and needs to just be a single rat. Seriously, if anyone is interested, please message me for more info. I love each of my rats, but my time was already spread thin before this. They really deserve more attention than they've been getting latelyMother's Day Sale May 4th1 year ago in Personal More Like This

So I did something I never thought I'd doI read my writing out loud in front of my class.So I did something I never thought I'd do1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I won't say what it was, but it's one of the poems on here that is extremely personal to me. I managed to read all the way through it and then I freaked out and ran out of the room. I hid in the bathroom for twenty minutes, crying and panicking and thinking things like, "Fuck, this is so humiliating! Why did I do that? Not only will they know how shitty my writing is, but they now know how I really feel!" I was terrified. Absolutely terrified.
And then one of my classmates walked into the bathroom. She coaxed me out of the stall and helped calm me down and hugged me and said that as soon as I ran out of the room, everyone basically said, "Holy shit. That was one of the best things I've ever heard." She walked me back to the room (I was shaking and still crying and I felt like I was going to die fuck I was so scared) and 20+ people who I never thought would ever react to poetry--especially mine--were smiling at me. Everyone, includi
Facebook is bad for artists?I had some interesting findings after posted a poll on DA regarding my Facebook Fan Page. Many have commented that they are against Facebook and discourage me from posting art over there due to various reasons, and one of them due to the possibility of having my art being used freely by this social media site. So here are my thoughts based on my experience running a FB page for a year.Facebook is bad for artists?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The main reason for me to set up a facebook page, is to extend my fanbase beyond DA, to the not so artist-oriented demographics. I have been using DA, and only DA, as my art HQ for the past decade and will always be. Facebook is acting as an outpost to connect with my fans in a more responsive manner due to the convenience of making posts, replies, making announcements and sharing images. Honestly, it is not my intention to choose between DA and FB, but to use both concurrently for different purposes.
So far I have not encountered any incident of FB using my images for advertising or any other comm
Coming Back!Thank you everyone who has supported me and given me their valuable advice about how to deal with my family situation in China.

The comments you guys left really helped me believe in myself. Thanks to everyone's encouragement, I know I wasn't in the wrong. I was able to firmly explain my problems with my father. It took many long and heated discussions before we finally came to an understanding but it was definitely worth it. He eventually admitted that he was wrong, and shouldn't have brushed me aside as being "too bothersome" or not worth angering his crazy wife for. He said he regrets the way he treated me, and has promised to try to visit me once a year. It's really hard to put into words how much that means to me, and I truly thank you all for helping me get to this point.
I read in the comments that many have e
