Making Changes ...First of all, I want to say a huge THANK YOU for all of the birthday wishes. I never expected to receive any, especially after being gone for so long, and never even thought to check back here until a friend told me that I ought to see what was going on. So thank you all, and it was really heartwarming to read.Making Changes ...2 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's hard to believe it's been two years since I was last here, but I was transitioning from college to working full-time, and maintaining an online presence just wasn't working for me. I am still struggling to find a good balance between work, play, and personal projects, but I am finally in a comfortable enough position to get my art websites back up and on track. It's about damn time, I think. So time permitting I plan on making some big changes around here.
For those who miss my old stuff: I will be taking my drawings out of storage and sorting them into an "Archives" folder. You will be able to view all of my old fanart and comics, but keep in mind m

I really need this I think. There's a ton of absolute shit going on right now and honestly... I just, I need to get away.
So I am.
I'll be unreachable-- no internet, no phone, no anything so that'll actually be nice. It'll be nice to not exist to the world for a few days.
Been working my ass off the last couple days at work (finally) so I haven't done anything drawing-wise at all. I wake up early, go to work, come home beat up and run down each day so I just lay in bed until I fall asleep. Sometimes I go on FB and talk to a couple friends if they're on.
zhaur has been a godsend the last few days... Seriously. She's amazing.
So yeah, I'm going to be gone all weekend. I'm not even going to bring my laptop with me or my tablet, sorry.
This isn't really going to be a vacation as much as like a personal time to get my head on straight again. Hopefully I'll come ba
Busy as an antI've been very busy lately, because of my commissions (they're quite big and take a lot of time), studies and daily life.Busy as an ant3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That's why I didn't have time to take any more commissions, requests or sort for some time or publish new art in here.
But I did start a new Left 4 dead-comic and it's info about uncommon common infected. Everything just takes now a quite long time to get ready.
Ps. This journal skin sure is interesting, lol.
24H Stream + [FIN] Sala-arvonnoistaFirst section is in English too. So.24H Stream + [FIN] Sala-arvonnoista2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

Okay, not gonna lieBut this new 'page layout' for Deviations is kind of hideous.Okay, not gonna lie2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It just suddenly showed up out of nowhere and confused the hell out of me... I was like 'I can't fave stuff anymore?!'
The buttons are all over the place! O_O
They just changed the layout not that long ago!
I was just getting used to that layout and KABOOM, they go up and do it again!
And they were all sneaky about it too!
Just suddenly 'oh look, I think I'll look at this and favourite it' *clicks* 'WHAT THE F*CKING HELL? Where's the bloody button?'
I literally had two images open a second apart... one had the 'old' layout to it and then other the 'new' layout. It confused me to no end.
I thought it was a glitch or something so I kept refreshing it...
Why isn't this layout optional damnit! Stop confusing us old folks with all your hyped up doodads and shiny button rearrangements.
You just can do that to us... we get confused and upset and wind up crying in a

So yep, HELLO PEOPLE! I have been living low profile a while here and in everywhere on internet. The thing is: LIFE happened. My computer broke, which - thanks to so many of you willing to help me - I was able to fix and now it is working and running better than ever. Gotta have a streaming session celebrating that and finish some small promised art for people. (I haven't forgotten my to do list and last two emergency commissions I own to impalae and Janttuman)
Ah... And next some personal muttering about personal matters because why not. I am sure it won't hurt to tell, even if I have tried not to bleed my mind here.
This summer as well as the spring/winter before that hasn't been kind to me. I experienced what it really is to have burnout which lead to moderate depressive episode in my life, and I

Intro: Read it or Leave it
Happy New Year, everyone! 2013 has truly been one of the greatest of my life, and it wouldn't nearly have been as fantastic without you all. Whether you're a long time friend, a new watcher, or simply a passerby, I want to thank each of you from the bottom of my heart. You all mean more to me than I can express in words.
New Year's seems like a perfect holiday to celebrate with you all, because really, all the other holidays only celebrate a fraction of my love and gratitude for your company and support. And what better way to celebrate than to hold my first contest? I have literally been planning this since July, and I am so incredibly excited to finally launch it!
General Rules and Pointers
As you can tell, this is something of an intricate mega-contest. Fear not, I will guide you all through!
This contest runs from January 1st, 2014 to January 1st, 2015!

See you at Anime Destiny!Hey guys!See you at Anime Destiny!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is will be the last con of the year for me, and what better way to end it than at the con held by my very own university I'll be at the annual Anime Destiny convention this November 16 at the Clark Kerr Conference Center at UC Berkeley, CA. As usual, I'll be in the Artist Alley with prints and books.
This year the Artist Alley will be in the Krutch Theatre due to construction of the usual location. Anime Destiny is a small con, but it's also one of my favorites because I get to see a lot of my old Berkeley friends there, and meet news ones as well. If you live in the bay area, come by and hang out!

Japan + other thingsHi, everyone!Japan + other things2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, as you can see, I've been inactive on dA recently -- erm, again. The reasons for that are quite the same as I have already told you; I think the only changes are that all the graduation celebration is finally over now, but unfortunately my condition is getting worse again (no worries, this time there's quite a clear reason for that).
So, yeah, I'm not going to list things all separately and detailed anymore, but I want to tell you that I'll be somewhat inactive here still for a while. I still have an entrance exams I have to prep for, and because of spending almost 50% of the daytime asleep, I don't have so much time left for the Internet - which I'm truly sorry for, since I just can't respond to all your support right now. But still, I want to make sure I'll be able to do that soon!
This time there's a fun reason to be inactive, too! Even if I feel awfully bad for all the undone things, I just can't prevent myself from being happy for the fact that one of my biggest
Be HAPPY with your artArtistic self-esteem.Be HAPPY with your art1 year 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. If you are a sensitive person (like me...) who always take

Its sanguisgelidus speakingHey! Its me, :iconsanguisgelidus:Its sanguisgelidus speaking3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes its true... I have been banned! I did quite a few things, that were against dA's rules, but I would never have expected they could lead to a ban! In fact I did never really read the ToS... Also there was nothing like a warning or something, it all came so unexpected! But dont blame it on the staff, they are just doing their job... :/
I just wrote an appeal to the staff telling them everything and I hope they will reactivate my account! If not, this is probably the last time I am able to speak to you! Because I read that a banned user isnt allowed to make a new account, so that would mean I will never be able to use dA again...
I am still shocked, 3 years, so many awesome experiences, I would never have believed, my art could get this popular! I am so thankful, because I improved so much and I got so many awesome possibilities through this site! But seeing my account banned leaves me with a lot of sadness...

First of all and once again, I apologize my inactivity. But what I'm not so sorry for is the reason for all that - because you know, I finally got a student place and I'm so excited to start studying something I'm actually interested in! Despite my earlier journal entries, I'm not going to an art school, but instead of that, I'm going to start studying media technology in Lahti. I just have to find an apartment for myself in under two weeks so it's getting quite hectic here. XD (Don't worry, I already have couple of those in mind!) On top of that, I have to work on things I'm going to sell at artists' alley at a Finnish anime/manga/rpg convention. Oh yeah, and the cosplays, too!
So, yeah, maybe it's pretty obvious that I don't have much time to spare on the Internet. But I hope that's going to work out soon.

So, the thing is, I didn't make it to any of the art schools (well, one of them wasn't actually an art school) I applied for. Yup, laugh at me if you like, but I'm not done yet since I still have one chance to get in. But for that, I really have to improve my skills in traditional art more than ever, which means that I won't have time for digital media for a while. Therefore, don't expect to see too much digital art from me for a bit, except commissions etc.! I'm not too confident about my art in general right now, not to mention the traditional pieces, so I'm not sure if I'll share those. But that'll remain to be seen!
I'll try to work hard on my personal art which surely takes some time, but I'll do my best on making sure that I'll have some time for my li
