> Starting from August I will have to stick all my energy and attention for a university school project which I am making with :iconfariini: and :iconmilkyteawhale:, and approximately three next months will be so full of stuff, work and sleepless nights that I think it is a miracle if I am able to get anything else done, but I will try my best! :3 We will be documenting progress of the project in Tumblr anyway so you can monitor our struggle while we work! ;D We will be posting links for tumblr account when the project is ready to launch.
> There has been less and less posting art lately. Lets just say that now that I will have to retreat from my usual drawings for a little while, I have stored up some works I can post here when this place feels more dead than it should feel! ;D I started making Characters ref sheets so we will be seeing that more and I have finished
Pet peeve 2I've seen this happen more than once. "This reminds me of pokemon. This reminds me of Okami. This reminds me of your ass."Pet peeve 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seriously, what do you think you achieve with a comment like that? Is the artist supposed to feel better that his/her oc looks like the fandom you're at the moment fapping to? Most of the artists I know want to be recognized for their own characters and ideas, and most of the time they haven't even thought - or better yet, heard - at all of that thing when the picture was created.
"This reminds me of--" is not a compliment. It's not a critique. It gives nothing new, but it makes you look like a snob who can't accept that when there is billions and trillions of people maybe might think of same kind of idea what someone else thought. If, as a comment, it's something, it's actually an insult of someone's imagination. Or, maybe, the person was actually inspirated about something. Let's say, he was inspirated by some pokemon. He liked the design and wanted
Success summer and spider offeringsSo I have finally done with my studies, which were “Vocational Qualification in Business and Administration” (That the translator gave me from word “Merkonomin tutkinto”). It was quite hard run, I worked so hard that I even almost got a peptic ulcer (that was painful). But now all that is over and I got good grades and 2 stipends. I even most likely will get a job after summer. Success.Success summer and spider offerings7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now I can have a nice summer vacation and finally start to draw moar by myself. And I also noticed that I can feed the spiders which enter my home to my geckos. But luckily I just got warnings here that they may have parasites. Thanks for telling! For now on, I sacrifice spiders to the ants.
Have a juicy summer

if you're interested in canine artists be sure to take a look at
I'm a co-founder there and can say there are some pretty amazing people that have already joined in
once it has more members and what not, me and the other founders will try to plan more things like contests and events
so the plan is to have a pretty fun filled group if anyone is interested !
I'd also like to ask, if there's anyone you'd consider a great canine artist, it would be very helpful to mention them in the comments ??
Our goal as of right now is to have 50 or so to take up the gallery and right now, these are who we have;

IT'S SO AWFUL I'M LAUGHING
and as a shark supporter i must say sharks do not jump into your boat, leap out into the air ten feet, or land on the top of your car and rip open the metal on the roof just to get in and take a bite out of you.
and they will not survive if a tornado picks them up out of the streets [yes, there were sharks swimming out in the streets and on top of buildings for no reason] and whips them around in an endless vortex of oxygen, not water
and sharks usually die in fresh water, like the fresh water they all swam around in to get inland so far that they probably made it to vegas before the hurricane ended [yes, it was a hurricane. and it went so far STARTING FROM CALIFORNIA inland you couldn't drive away from it unless you lived in michigan or something, but it's okay because the tornado at the end stayed in the exact same spot the entire time anyway]
and if you are falling out of a helicopter because your foot slipped w

I first didn't wanted to join Deviantart, in fact I never was confident enough to show my art to so many people, specially back then, but all because this guy: :iconkoalla:, who forced me to join it (he basically created it for me, like "HERE IS YOURS USE IT D<") I'm here and in love with this place lol
I first started with drawings of humans, and stuff... but so many things happen since then, I quit art for about one year or so, and after this hiatus I started to paint only the things I really liked, mostly animulz hahah
here's the last evidence of my human artz:

My goal is to stream 24 hours straight next week. I will start by drawing something, but after that I will play The Last of Us. Yes, the whole game. I will get good quality webcam to take video of my television, but it won't be HD quality. I hope it will be good enough! I don't have the money or resources to catch the game to my computer from PS3 so you just need to accept this solution, sorry. :'D
STREAM WILL BE HOLD BETWEEN 25th and 26th of February, so one week from now.
Schedule will be something like this (GMT +2):
Tuesday February 25th
1 PM - Stream starts + drawing
4:15-4:45 PM - Break, I will be eating something
5 PM - The Last of Us gameplay starts
There will be couple of breaks.
I will be talking with mic while playing the game (so you can hear my all curses), otherwise there might be just music.
After finishing the game I will continue drawing something. I have been thinking about playing DLC after the main game, but I am not sure i

Be HAPPY with your artArtistic self-esteem.Be HAPPY with your art6 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a message to anyone who´re feeling bad about their "artistic self-esteem" or lost the motivation to keep going with art. But of course, anyone can read and interpret this! Feel free to leave a comment if you want to add something (or blame me. ). You´re also free to share this!
Be "happy" with your art? Well. Not saying that you should stay satisfied with all your art so you´ll never improve. It´s more about being confident with the one you are as an artist. The artist inside of you. ~
Feel good about your art just the same way as you should feel confident with being yourself as a person. Draw what you want the same way as no one should blame you for what clothes you are wearing. Speak out your meanings and express all your sentiments just the same way as you shouldn´t be shameful about putting on your favorite music in front of everyone.

More updates ! - featureSO.More updates ! - feature4 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's the time again to update due to some major changes in my real life.
So I pretty much failed to find a suitable place for my internship/graduation for this year. I should actually graduate/finish my internship in February but that's not going to work now. So I'll have to start with my graduation internship at the beginning of February now instead and graduate at the beginning of June.
This all means I'll be busy networking and looking for a new place/company who I'll be working with on a graduation subject.
Plus, I'm planning on enrolling in University or another school to do a master study in 2015/2016. I'll probably have to move out and search for a place to live close to my study. So that all is going to suck up a major part of my time and all. And now that I have almost 4 months of free time and I'm being nagged to look for an extra job next to drawing. I'll have to go put time into looking for a job as well to earn some money I now lost...
Personal reasonsOver a year ago a person got very offended by an old comic of mine and wanted to explain to me why it was offensive. When they wrote to me I had long since understood that and deleted it from my own galleries, but they had found it on Tumblr and felt it was important to talk about NOW. At first I didn't respond because a lot of things were going on in my life and I needed to not stress about it, but then they started shouting on Tumblr about it and got more people shouting at me and I finally gave in. I tried to explain to the person what my thoughts had been behind it at the time but that I no longer felt that way, but they kept going.Personal reasons2 months ago in Personal More Like This
At the same time a lot of people were writing me about minor things like if they should move to Denmark or what my opinion was about one thing or another, and I didn't respond to any of those either and some questioned me about it. All the while this person was getting all worked up and wouldn't just take my "I'm sorry but I can't do this right no

Just saying.If I had to choose from looking more at fan art or more at original characters, I'd prefer your oc's.Just saying.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If I had to choose between getting fanart or being inspirational enough for people to get motivated or invent their own characters, I'd choose the latter.
I'm not saying that fan art is bad, it is a tribute to a show/thing/character you like and a nice way to show it. I know that I am thrilled whenever someone draws my characters voluntarely,
But still, everyone has so unique imagination. I have one, you have one, depending on so many factors it's impossible to list them all. But it's unique. It's so full of ideas and things some people haven't even thought of. I'm saddened by the fact that people are just so afraid to let it out, or just want to stick drawing existing characters for fame or other reasons (btw, never draw anything for fame or I will kick you in the groin). I don't want to see billions of Alta´rs, Alex Mercers, MLP or whatever. I want to see the world you're thinking ab

As for the art thing, somebody might know that last couple of months I've been filling up my Tumblr with fan art, which has quite a long time (well, it has felt like one) my only place to share my doodles with other people besides close friends. I'm not a psychologist myself, but I'm quite positive it's got something to do with my social anxiety that has been haunting me for years art-wise, or when it comes to posting it somewhere or interacting with other artists.

I'm sorry to everyone who didn't get a request! Honest speaking, it was DIFFICULT to choose characters. If life was longer and we had more than 24 hours a day, it'd probably be possible to draw for everyone. xDD But sadly, it isn't this way...
I feel bad for that there only were two requests, so please watch out for new events, just because it's loads of fun and a way to thank you watchers for being awesome. <33

In the last 3 days I think I have received and reported at least 100 spam comments on almost all my artwork (new AND old pieces) and they just keep coming. As useful as feedback can be I am afraid I'll have to start disabling comments on any new artwork to avoid the spam... It's just getting too out of hand. I spent most of my spare time on here today reporting comments and I do not like the fact that almost all my new work as well as a lot of my older pieces now have a bunch of 'reported' comments. It's embarrassing for some reason.
And people wonder why dA isn't taken seriously as a legitimate art website? Come on now... it's because of reasons like this. I mean that in the best way possible.
They have people reporting it left and right, telling them about it, presenting evide
