Okay you all probably thought I disappeared, took you guys money and attention, love, and support and threw it all away!
I mean it's been weeks right??
Nope! Guess what!!

Lol! Now it happened suddenly so all my patreon money has been used for rent and my paychecks will be used for bills ; 3 ;
So I will need to be working extremely hard. So hard > ~ <U
Okay! Let me explain!
So I was at work when my boyfriend came up to me and told me that we were getting the house sooner than we expected, (we expected it by next year, in June. Oh by house it's his old house that his mom was renting out ti his Uncle.)
His Uncle was going to leave his wife so they moved out and we moved in basically. But the house was in shams. Holes in the walls, different colored paints and blotches everywhere, cracked tiles, etc. So this whole time I've been gone I have been working on the house. Spent most of my sav

PS: this one is on the verge being settled, Disney already started working on it, she's being helped.
Seeing posts like this, I just thought I should share some knowledge I have, I personally already have met 3 different artists who doesn't know what to do when:
Record company ripped them off
Publisher ripped them off
Big corporation used their artwork without permission (that's usually by accident because of an outsource company broke the rule etc)

Atheism's Holy War on ChristmasMerry War on Christmas, Everyone!Atheism's Holy War on Christmas3 years ago in Personal More Like This
*This journal skin apparently doesn't like big monitors very much -- you might need to resize your window temporarily to view it properly*
It's every atheist's favorite time of year again - the time when we get to harass and oppress Christians the world over, because people -- the War on Christmas is real.
In celebration of this most holy of wars, I've decided that I'm going to go against tradition and explain just exactly what the War on Christmas is all about, and how it all leads up to the most holy of days on the atheist calendar: AntiChristmas.
The official War on Christmas begins in late November with the Day of Preparation for the War on Christmas -- known by most Americans as "Thanksgiving Day." Recently President Obama (who was planted by atheist organizations in order to pursue our liberal secularist agendas) was exposed by
Perceptions of HomosexualityGay and Lesbian rights is a an issue that galvanizes people, particularly on the internet, and as I writer of male/male fiction or a Yaoi fangirl, as you may prefer, I would like to weigh in with my views on the matter.Perceptions of Homosexuality4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Naturally I do completely support Gay rights and all this entails. For example I believe that adoption and marriage are just as valid options for Gay and Lesbian couples and should be permitted and protected by law. I also feel that individuals of any marginal sexual orientation or gender identity should be free from prejudice, harassment, or unequal treatment at work or in public. So on and so forth.
I think that this is the most common stance for liberal-minded individuals and is probably the one expected of me, given my interests. My interests in male/male works however are not what guarantees or suggests my support for Gay rights.
I think most Yaoi fans do support gay rights but, although their tastes may influence this opinion, this is mainly because they are thems
About the comicPlease be a little more patientAbout the comic6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm receiving a LOT of messages asking me "when?" and it creates quite a bit of stress.. it's a great feeling to see so much people who are looking forward to it, but it can also be a little overwhelming..
I will also admit I have a recurring problems with deadlines for big projects. They are very useful as they put a fair pressure on me and gets things done.However, on the other hand, as a deadline grows near I become increasingly nervous. There is something really quite unique that happens when you work for long on a big project and you are about to finish it. you somehow need to come to term with it. Realize and accept it will soon be no longer in your hand and if you messed up something, well it's for good !
So... what I'm getting at is the comic release will go past the deadline and take a little more days to complete. I'm sorry about that, in the end it seems to be something that happens with every single of my comics

Celebrating Diversity #36The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to share deviations outside of our area of comfort and explore art we usually don't see. So today, I decided to venture into the Stock Photography gallery and you know what I discovered? That there are some stock photographs, which by nature are intended for other artists to use, as reference or for derivative works, etc. that are truly masterpieces just by themselves!Celebrating Diversity #362 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Featured Art collectionHey everyone!Featured Art collection2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You know, yesterday, after my daily shower, while blowing my hair, I took a pair of scissors and I started cutting my hair without thinking. Yes, it's not like I always think but I had this urgency of changing. And the fact is that I spent the past two years complaining that I wanted/want long hair like Rapunzel... whatever.
I think this is the richest collection of artworks I have ever featured here on dA. It's full of my personal favorite works of 2013 that you may enjoy. Show some love to these amazing artworks and get inspired

Selling BasesNow, before you start sending me hate mail, Please just listen to me for a second.Selling Bases3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been seeing quite a few people charging people in order to use their bases, this actually got me thinking if I could get away with something like that. And of course I could.
It wouldn't take much to con someone into that; but SERIOUSLY? I know they're just trying to make points/money off of something they do but come on, that's not what bases are for. I know I probably sound really stupid for saying this but making bases for the purpose of selling them is so wrong on so many levels. I'm not trying to point fingers or blame anyone but this is just so against my morals as a person.
The reason I wanted to make bases when I first started out five years ago, was that I wanted to share them with everyone. Even if they were shitty traces, I didn't really know any better. Because at the end of the day, I was getting comments like 'Hey thanks for the base, I had a fun time dolling, here [LINK]'

BE YOURSELFWe all have plenty of artists we admire. It's not unusual to see ourselves staring at a wonderful piece of art and thinking "I wish I could create art just like this artist...!". I sometimes find myself admiring some artworks so much, that I feel inclined to create something similar. But that never ends in anything good. It only leads me to frustration and failure - because I can't be someone else. I can't create art like another artist. I am myself, therefore, my art should represent myself, my feelings, my emotions - not somebody else's.BE YOURSELF3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That's why one of the greatest advices I can give you is... Be yourself, even when you're creating your ART.
Do not try to be someone else. Do not try to create art similar to others. Do not copy.
Be spontaneous! And you will see how it will flow. It will feel right. You will feel comfortable, in the right place. It will be meaningful.

When you comish me, you're accepting the following rules.
- You have to pay before I start the picture. Once I have the sketch, I will send it to you. Think carefully what do you want cause I won't change the whole idea of a picture. Then you tell me what to change and when it's okay with you, I will start with the color. Remember to say the changes on the sketch. Once color is started, there's nothing to do.

I manage to contact zephleit through his personal email and this is what he said (I copy and paste as it is)
Hello. I'm so glad you managed to contact me. I was so shocked, even until now...
dA banned my account because of a single picture that I made 2 years ago was considered "explicit" despite the fact that tagged it mature and has censorship to conform with dA's policies. This sucks even more because it all happened on my birthday. Thanks, dA, for such a wonderful gift. To those curious, I'm sorry, I don't have the picture in question...
The good news is... I plan on creating a new account soon. I have already filed an appeal to dA to lift my ban because I believe that my ban was unfair and that I was judged wholly and banned indefinitely based on that single pic alone. It would take a while so I don't want to create a new account yet. I want to wait for the results. So let's all

Don't Take AbuseI don't know how much of an issue this is here, but just in case it is I think it's important to give some information and encouragement. I saw a recent post by The Thinking Atheist about a 17 year old who was outed as being an atheist to Christian parents. Since I don't have permission to post their story here, and it's pretty personal, I will just say check out The Thinking Atheist facebook page for details, but essentially this lead to both physical and emotional abuse by a rather intense religious father. This is by no means an isolated incident, for teens or young people still dependent on religious parents, coming out as nonChristian or nonreligious can be a real risk. Everything from abuse to being kicked out on the street to losing college funding or other financial stability, as well as the obvious risk of emotional turmoil amongst family. When previous safe havens like church suddenly aren't an option, and religious friends might turn their back, it can be very isolatingDon't Take Abuse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
