New old JobStarting this month I will be working again in my old beloved job as a freelance illustrator and painter. There were many factors that this place was pretty awful. The boss had hired me as a designer for his products (specially Shirts). Finally, I had to make calculations the whole day on ancient monitors which flickered so hart that I couldn't see much at the evenings. I didn't make drawing there too, particularly no materials for it were available in the company. Nevertheless, the boss had ideas for drawings,New old Job2 years ago in Personal More Like This
that he want me to draw after work at home. In his opinion I should have done two to three unpaid overtime every day... A week ago, I have terminated my employment and in the interim two more employee have also stopped working there... Currently, I clean out my archive of 2013 and will sell as much as I can to rebound next month.
I'm totally looking forward to the new, old work now!

Pokemon Fire Red Nuzlocke ArchiveClick to view nuzlocke rules and reasoning.Pokemon Fire Red Nuzlocke Archive2 years ago in Personal More Like This
That is what I'm pretty much doing now. Uhh. I am doing a Nuzlocke for my fire red pokemon game. Mainly because I love that version from the memories I had when I first played it xD So yeah. This is an archive of all the comics (so far). This would make it easier for me to update than every single comic.
Since I am at a loss of what to really post due to art and writing block, I'm going to post my comics for every part.
Fire Red Nuzlocke Synopsis
A girl, more or less classified as a hermit who doesn't do anything but sleep all the time and play video games, mysteriously wakes up in a windowless blue room with her gender being asked by a relatively familiar professor she remembers in her video games. Thinking that it's some sort of really cool virtual reality game, she lies to Oak about her gender and name. Setting off from the small and quaint Pallet Town, she begi

The Mess that was Akicon 2012(Very long journal warning)The Mess that was Akicon 20122 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wooow, this is probably the worst-run convention ever.
Let me start with the good stuff first, since the bad things will be a far longer list :<
As usual, the people are WONDERFUL T-T!!
It's always great to see familiar people from previous years/other cons (though I suck at remembering names, sorrrry) and meet/talk to new people. Some people kept coming back and buying a little more each time, it was really nice ;-;
Also a random girl hugged me and some guys asked to take photos together (which was a little awkward lolll).
:iconno-wei: gave me a GORGEOUS drawing of Katsura & Eli reading Parashi comics!! It's soo sweeetttt I kept taking it out and looking at it every hour or so, all weekend T_T I LOVE IT SO MUCH, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
All in all everyone was super nice and I got so many compliments >o
The Do's And Don'ts of FanfictionA list of little tips and quirks about writing fanfiction, or writing in general.The Do's And Don'ts of Fanfiction2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) For the love of GOD. If you're not a good writer, do not attempt to write anything with more than a comedic plot and a single simple pairing. Start out small, and work your way up. You will improve, I promise. But don't embarrass or misjudge yourself. Analyze where you are as a writer. And keep asking yourself "would I read this if I hadn't written it?"
Remember that genre matters. Your characters will act differently in a comedy than if they were in a tragedy. That brings us to our next topic.
Characterization is a HUGE part of fanfiction. The reason people are reading it, is because of the characters. Sure, plot and the quality of the prose is a very big deal. But the whole reason they are on fanfiction is to read about their ship. So give them what they want, without straying from the plot of your story. Finding a good balance between character development in your plot and estab
The Inevitability of IndividualityI've been working on this for quite a while and I really hope you guys enjoy the result. I was looking through my favourites and it struck me how images with a similar composition can look so different, particularly of people. The phrase "The inevitability of individuality" came to me, and thus this project was born. Now, posting it, it feels like a piece of artwork in itself but sadly all the images belong to other people (click through and fave!). In any case the point of this art piece is to remind us all that no matter what we do we are uniquely ourselves. There's no point, and no need, to try and be someone else. You're perfect as you are.The Inevitability of Individuality1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.Hi everyone! It's been awhile. This post is a little important so I have a feeling im going to be making it a little long... Also, I'm doing it from my phone. So, there may be weird typos.Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't wanna read the whole thing here's a basic summary:
I left DA because of Internet hate which brought down my confidence; I got a lot of hate the same day I found out my grandfather died which really made it worse, I planned on coming back the beginning of January but I was hospitalized because of a bowel obstruction and I am still currently in the hospital and plan to come back mid February. Also I feel like shit.
Long version: I guess I'll start... With why I left. It's a really complex reason and I really hope everyone will understand, but I think there might be some people who just won't. And by that I mean, I am aware I have a handfull of followers who might feel neutral about my art rather than full out liking it. Or maybe I'm just talking about the people who don't really like my ar

Walking down the hall, not expecting a damn thing to happen today. But you were wroung, tackled to the floor. You grunted to see it was Grell, smiling down at you.
"Hello, ______!~" The red head inched closer to you, you pushed him off of you. You stood to your feet, dusting yourself off. you continued walking, Grell jumped to his feet. Walking after you, you hated it when he comes over and would tackle you or your brother, sebastian. Sighing as Grell stepped infront of you, you crossed your arms over your chest. The red head gripped your gloved hands, pulling away from your chest.
"_______, why don't you pay no attention to me." Grell whined, rolling your (E/C) eyes. Grell leaned into you, his head laying on your chest.
"Why don't you like me?" You huffed, pushing the red head away from you. You made your way to the kitchen, knowing your brother could be there making his Master's dinner. Opening the kitchen door, your ja
