My dA story[Wow, it's been ages since I wrote a journal, so I thought this little bandwagon would be the perfect opportunity to do that.]My dA story7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I joined dA in 2006. I was 16, a sophomore in high school.
A friend of mine suggested it offhand, and I had been posting my first ventures into digital art on forums for a private server of Ragnorok Online, so I thought to myself "why not! Let's see what this is all about."
I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but the moment I first started posting, I could feel something change. Having people interested in your art and stories was so motivating; it was unlike anything I had ever had in person with family or friends. Up until I joined, I'd never really taken my art seriously.
I was on here for a year before I started concepting SalaDays, a slapstick story about supernatural teens in school. A lot of people showed interest, so I started up a webcomic (and even opened up

Dealing with Creative DOUBT...I'm at the point where nothing seems right. Everything I write down is cliche, badly written, and has bad pacing. Yet when I was younger I would turn out stories one right after the other like a non-stop machine. But now...thanks to all those instructors and classes, the creative edge is now limping along like a dog with only one leg.Dealing with Creative DOUBT3 years ago in Personal More Like This
...I don't have an agent or anything published in the first place. So that does paint an extra layer of doubt upon the situation.
...when I discuss this, usually I'm berated with people saying, "Stop being so emo." As if depression were something that one can simply switch on and off.
...I guess what I'm doing here is ... trying to find some kind of sign, revelation or clue that I'm not a bad writer or that I'm just another writing loser.
You're not a bad writer or a loser of any kind.
-- You're NORMAL.
The truth is all artists of every kind have to deal with Doubt -- from the rank beginner to the professional. All of us, without excep

I was called and came into Seattle just 3 hours later, rushed to the Virginia Mason hospital and within minutes I was getting prepped for surgery. The surgery was 5 hours, went well, and I am currently in a long term stay hotel in Seattle. I'll be here for a month total (more if needed) and its still not hit me yet how insane it all sounds.
My organ came from a cadaver donor, is in the top %20 in the nation. After 4 days it is working at peak performance. New medications to get used to, new tastes smells and sounds. My kidney affects -so much- of my life that it's exciting to see just what changes on a day to day basis.
Here's a list of the biggest changes:
My skin is healthy, no longer cracked, dry peeling or bleeding
I can eat just about anything now (In fact they want me to eat tons)

Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKSSo... that last journal was a doosie wasn't it? 500+ comments and counting! Yikes. I can always count on Anita Sarkeesian to give me tons of views, lol. All joking aside, that was a very serious batch of discussions. Anytime we talk about sexism and objectification of women in gaming or geek culture, it's sure to get a lot of responses.Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly since Anita is such a hot-topic around the internet, there was more than one person who were trying to claim that there actually isn't ANY issue with the game industry involving sexism at all. To them, this whole idea that women are marginalized or objectified or treated badly both in the gaming industry and in geek culture is just false. It doesn't exist. And any attempt to explain why we need to change things is inherently flawed because there's no reason to do so.
So in the interest of trying to debunk that bullshit, I made a list of sources I accumulated around the internet to prove that this is indeed a problem. I think everyone can benefit f
Why I've been gone for so long...Hey there everyone,Why I've been gone for so long...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you know, I took up a job in the finance industry late last year. I was really trying my best to get everything working and running.
I gave up my nights, I gave up my weekends. I even gave up the only thing that I ever had going for me and that was my writing.
I became lazy, sloppy and most of all weak. Yet, throughout all that, there were still people encouraging me. People whom I thought were my friends were all gone now, but suddenly, some people who I never expected to, they kept me going even with a few words of encouragement every now and then.
The turning point came last night, when someone actually made a song out of a poem I wrote. Link is here. It's pretty good and it's based off "Someday I'd like to be a pirate": https://soundcloud.com/l2p0/pirates
And...it just made me realise that I'd lost track of what I was really chasing. I gave up on my skills and I let them rust, but everyone
Animecon 2013 workshops - The aftermathWoah! Animecon is over, but the workshops were great!Animecon 2013 workshops - The aftermath2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Especially the workshop on dynamic poses was busier than I expected. We had to close the room because there were no more spots available, and we even had a camera crew there that was working on some kind of documentary to film us. Although I have to admit that last part made me a bit nervous. I'm still shy when it comes to things like that.
Neverthless, I had a lot of fun.
I met many people. Ofcourse there was Light-Lein to help me out with my workshop (and I helped her out with hers). But there were many other people that I greeted. Many of those came from DeviantArt, the Mangaschool forums, and there were even those that I didn't recognize at all (I feel a bit guilty for that).
I was around at the dealing room as well and had an interesting conversation with Appeltjesgroen , who was doing commissions there, about how business went and how it worked getting a table at the convention. It's somehow an appealing idea t

In the event of this group's two week anniversary I thought that it was time for a competition in order to get this group started properly!
:iconpervycielCiel is excited!)
The theme of the competition is going to beee, wait for it, music (I were planning to come up with some awesome and catchy name, but my creative abilities just died, so music it is)!
You are supposed to chose a song (it could be any type of song from any genre), and the title of this song has to be the title of your entry- and your submission has to be inspired by that song! If any of that was unclear, just send me a note or leave a comment!

The contest is over! I'll announce the winners on 01 Feb.
Three days, okay? You guys get 3 more days to complete your contest entries. owo;
That means that if you have applied for an extension, you haven until 18 Jan at 1159pm Pacific Time to complete your entry. There will be no further extensions beyond that point!
This will be the only announcement. (Bonus points if you got the reference.)
The contest is ending soon! Don't forget that you can have a one-week extension if you show me a WIP by 08 Jan '15 at 1159pm Pacific Time.
Since I'm doing a blanketed contest extension, I'd still really like everyone to be done by the 15th (mostly referring to those I've given the extensions to already), but I might be able to extend that by one more week, so if you need it, come talk to me. (I'm not a mean person, usually. ) Which brings me to my next point, any stragglers can now request a one-week extension by the 8th of Ja

The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)Howdy friends,The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There has been an exciting development!
A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ http://www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers). When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality. I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.
I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.
In the meantime, I'm posting up the pages of The Statement of Randolph Carter (for beginning readers) I was working on when the word came through from Ch
