On Justin.It goes without saying that this is probably the hardest thing I've ever had to write. How do you describe the impact that your absolute best friend has had on you, even in death? How do you write about your idol taking his own life? How do you put into words your feelings about someone that you were so known for adoring that your name will forever be inextricably linked to his? I'm not sure if I even can, but I'd be damned if I didn't at least give it a try.On Justin.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
By now, it's common knowledge. Justin Spencer Carmical, an Internet reviewer known to many as JewWario and my best friend in all of time and space, died by his own hand on Thursday, January 23, 2014. And as has been said, anyone that knew Justin, a group that I am so incredibly proud to call myself a part of, is most shattered by the fact that the way he left us was the polar opposite of his personality -- at least outwardly, as we all now know.

Important: Have you Notified your Stock Providers?Hi all,Important: Have you Notified your Stock Providers?10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to take a quick moment out from registering people for the Photomanipulation Tournament to bring to your attention an issue that is plaguing our community.
I think a lot of people think that, with the new Mentions system, there is no need to notify stock providers when you use their work. This is untrue! There are a few of reasons why you still need to notify them via note or comment, as per their preference, when you use their stock:
1. Some people turn their Mentions off because they get to be annoying. Thus, if you don't tell them, they may never see your gorgeous work.
2. Stock providers like to keep track of your work, and notes/comments help with that.
3. If your stock provider doesn't see your work, he/she can't give you love!

So...I'm getting tired of updating the list of links on each new set of folders.
As such, I'm going to make one complete, constantly updated directory here.
Feel free to make your requests here as well. Just leave me the name of the series and the character (they have to be chibi though, they fit better in the folders lol). I actually prefer to do sets as opposed to singles, so don't be shy in requesting more than one. I reserve the right to decline (though I likely won't without good reason.) I can't guarantee they'll get done quickly or at all, but no harm in trying, eh?

I got to experience pretty much everything you guys mentioned in the last journal xD though not to such extremes in some cases. Overall everything was ok. China was cool and HK of course is shopping heaven. I'll make a better post later after I sort out all these photos. Most of the pics I took are of weird things... =3=
But anyway before that!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I was in Shanghai, this little sparrow (?) flew over and landed near me, so I approached it like I always do when I spot birds, expecting it to fly off when I try to poke it..but it didn't 80! So I picked it up.
Sorry for the crappy photos, my dad took them and he never focuses on the right thing OTL

Yesterday I went to ZOO Olomouc with my great friend amrodel - she has never been to this ZOO and because it is one of my the most favorite animal facilities, I really wanted to show her! And because amrodel is a lion lover and because baby lions were born in Olomouc, we could not have a better opportunity to meet! It is always a pleasure to see :devamrodel and we really had fun. It was fantastic to watch whole lion family - father imon was so desperate, because his babies wanted to play with his tail! He really seemed very unhappy about it. But we had fun.
Thank you for great meeting and for a great present (amrodel gave me a printed version of her famous and beautiful photo of my beloved wolf Lobo), friend
In the ZOO, I saw also something which took my breath away - I will show you later!
But after I got back, I got some leight gastric problems. I had them also today, but it was very far from anything serious. But during this eve

As some of you may know, I am in the process of creating a comic called King Of The Currupaw http://sedillio.deviantart.com/art/King-Of-The-Currumpaw-Cover-334525655 It's about the real life tale of a legendary wolf named Lobo, who is the reason that Americans have created wildlife and nature conversations that we still have today! He really was amazing and his story has been told throughout the decades. There have been movies and other comics of his story, but none are really from his perspective so I thought it's be an interesting project to work on for my favorite wolf hero!
Lobo was the alpha of a incredible wolf pack that terrorized settlers and farmers of the old American west for quite sometime! The pack outsmarted even the most seasoned trappers and were know to slaughter fields of livestock in a single night. I could have created every one of hi

Your Dream MapMy friend has dragged me out for coffee meeting and inspired me with very creative, motivating idea- to create your Inner Map of Dreams, which was based from the coaching workshops.Your Dream Map11 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a part of your inner self training, organizing what is going on in your mind and a little step with your "Personal Legend" pathway. After doing that small excerise, I've felt so pleasant in myself like floating in clouds despite of my grumpy mood, by imagining that I already did what I dreamt for. After all, it's really fun to do :]
What you have to do is to collect pictures (anything, from magazines, photography or even artwork; you can cut out from magazines or print them out) that represent your thoughts, passions and what you want dream to do/or to be.
Find your life inspirations.
Cut them out and glue everything on your piece of paper. That paper sheet is your MAP and you'd have to fill your map with your "dreams". Those cutout pieces are parts of your dreams, i.e. pict

This is a create a character contest. I will be posting a list of characters that have not yet been drawn, and I am interested in portraying, in this journal. You will take ONE of these characters, design them, and submit them. I will pick three winners, and those characters will be considered the official design of those characters as far as The Future Of Our Past comics are concerned.
Please note, once the design and character is submitted, if picked, it will be under my creative property, with credit going to you if/when I use it in the comic at any point in time. Meaning, you will hold no creative license over the character anymore, but will receive credit and publicity by having it in my comic, as my comic does get a lot of views. So do not submit a character if you have issues with that character becoming mine.
