BlackFish...Okay, so the documentary 'Blackfish' is now available on the internet to download, so I finally got to see it.BlackFish...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First and foremost, I would like to inform everyone who watches it that it is an extremely biased and one sided documentary. It is created in such a way that by the end of it you have no other option but to think Captivity is super bad and the worst thing ever. People who already believe this will say, "OH NO IT ISN'T BIASED IT JUST STATES THE FACTS". Those people are pretty brainwashed. It DOES state facts for sure, but that's not to say you can't slant any fact you want to make people believe a certain thing or think a certain way. And that's exactly what this documentary does.
I have already made my own opinion about captivity. It is an INFORMED decision, because I can tell you, not one thing in this documentary was new to me. Most people watch it and are like "ARH MY GAWDD I SO SHOCKED BY WHAT I SAW", then I will say you have not bothered to educate yourself on the situati
My deviantART StoryIt has now been over 10 years since I first decided to join deviantART and little did I know then, this decision would end up forging my entire life and career.My deviantART Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I remembered exactly how it all started, but I'm going to go with my best guess and say I heard about it from another student when I started college back when I had just turned 18. Up until then I had been using various art forums such as wcreplays.com, animex.com, sijun.com and cgsociety.org so the discovery of a portfolio website was a pretty cool thing.
I started posting on here and got moderate attention, I had been drawing for a long time at that point so my art was in a state where it was at least interesting to look at. If anything it was a fantastic place to get inspiration and look at art from amazingly talented artists.
It wasn't until I decided to color the line-art for the following piece that everything really started.

First, Beta Testing sign ups are CLOSED!
You can no longer sign up to be a beta tester for the game. Our final number has totaled out to 158+ beta testers. I normally wouldn't have ended it, but I knew I had to draw a line somewhere. I'm sorry to all those who still wanted to sign up, but I will no longer accept them. Thank you to everyone who did sign up!
We're getting a host this week and going to start setting everything up. My html skills may not be that hot, but I'm sure I'll figure it out since I can't afford to hire on anyone else sadly >.< Silly me for running out of money.
Let's see, what else... oh, the artwork is coming along awesomely and I would say about 80% of it is done that I need for the actual beta testing launch, so I'm happy. I have to edit some of the stuff, but it's no big deal. I hope to get more backgrounds done soon though so there's more to explore than a short Tutorial map >.> sometimes I wish I wasn't a turtle when it came to color
New IdeaHey guys!New Idea6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've recently been tossing around the idea of selling some of my photos. This could be a commission type of thing or I could just take photos to send to people throughout the week. The photos I would be selling won't be posted on dA or anything other sites. This could be a great way for me to make some extra money during the summer and then maybe help save up for graduate school (I'm trying to get my Doctorate in Civil and Environmental Engineering).
Would this be something you guys would be interested in? I haven't worked out all of the details for this idea yet so this isn't set in stone.
Edit: As you may have noticed by now, I've made a couple changes to my profile and gallery. Many of the photos in my gallery were irrelevant to the direction I would like to go from here so I simply removed them.
Sailor Moon Crystal and Legend of KorraOkay...Sailor Moon Crystal and Legend of Korra1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Y'all I am loving this Sailor Moon Crystal, especially the animation and the look of our beloved Sailor Senshi. They look very close to their manga style. Naoko Takeuchi is one of the better manga artists in my opinion. Now, Legend of Korra...it's going too fast...I wish I knew more about the lava bender, the sparky boom boom chick, and the others...We had chance to fall in love with all the characters from Airbender...this installment seems like a one night stand with no IHOP in the morning.
Kitten Update!Hello All!Kitten Update!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Well...two days ago Rorsharch gave birth. I don't know how many kittens she had but she was BIG. It was so cute seeing her with her long legs and this wide belly. She has put them in a safe place, but knowing her , she'll bring them to me in a few weeks when their eyes are open. Caligula's babies are doing fine. One of them had open eyes at 8 days and the rest at 10 days. They are at a very healthy weight, have normal body temperature, and are getting plenty of love and care from their momma. When their eyes are in the blue stage, I will try to take pictures and reveal their names.

Inverted heroes are not a move forward.Taking a known hero of fiction and altering their gender and/or race is a stunt. A gimmick. They do it for the sake of “shock” advertising rather than out of any real desire to add variety to the predominantly white male pantheon.Inverted heroes are not a move forward.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
There have been a few news articles to stoke my irritation over the last couple of months. First there was word that Thor of the Marvel universe was to become female, then there was a rumour James Bond was going to be recast with a black actor and now there are mumbles that the Spiderman who may/may not show up in the cinematic Marvel universe will be a black kid: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-31362800
Personally, I think all this crap is side-stepping the issue of diversity rather than addressing it. If the likes of Marvel were really serious about it, they’d invest time and capital creating new heroes who are a different gender/race from the get-go. Building up a new mythology for a female or black character would be so much str

Back in the Saddle, Ready to Ride!!!!Hello All!Back in the Saddle, Ready to Ride!!!!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
WoooTTT!! I am back in my fanfic saddle and I am strapped, ready to ride. I am on the look out for my artists who I have worked with before as well as some new ones! I need new art for my fanfics. A lot of my stories are interracial romance, so if you are an artist who believes that love sees no color, please link me to your profile with all your commission info !
MomentsI'd like to say that last night I was feeling pretty down. I had sent in a request to join a group that I admired only to be rejected partially because my art wasn't good enough for them. I was really hurt by their reason for not accepting me to the point where I started to harshly judge my own art. I already judge the things I do pretty harshly, but last night I had a mind to delete everything I had done so far and just start over. I woke up this morning to see a note in my DA inbox with someone asking me if I do requests and it made me smile. It was then I realized that not everyone is going to like the things that I do, but if I can make someone happy with the things I love then I'm doing something right. My way might not be the best, but at the end of the day it is my way. I have no ill feelings towards the group because their criticism drives me to work harder! I will try my best in the future!Moments5 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I was thinking...So far I've posted a photo from all but one of the commissions I've done. I was thinking that maybe those photos can act as sneak peeks for the photo sets. Therefore, you can "order" a commission that I've already done. I don't think it's a commission anymore though. But a couple of the commissions are special and a bit more expensive though.So I was thinking...3 months ago in Personal More Like This
For example, you like Lace and Pearls and would like to see the entire set. You can send me commission payment along with a note of which set you want and I'll send you that set.
How does that sound to you guys?
Molestine XDso I have been seeing these things on Da recently.. something called Moleskine...Molestine XD1 year ago in Personal More Like This
and i never knew what it was until my friend told me it was like a sketchbook.
so what is so special about it?
well clearly people drew stuff in it with markers and with copics, some even with acrylics so it must have some really high quality paper.
so my husband and i, on our way to my parents house for the Easter, came across a bookstore that sold these. so we decided to give them a try
also lol inside they even have the-- if found return to.. and reward.. lol i just couldn't resist putting something far more valuable XDDD
and wow.. I'll be damned, the paper looked really thin, but it never bled over to the other side O_O IM GONNA MOLEST THE SHIT OUT OF THIS MOLESKINE. with markers of course XD
oh and also.. Easter was a blast spent with family.
my hubby drew me a Vlad on one of the eggs, so ofc i had to return a favour by drawing Ally on his XDDD

Share Some InspirationI was originally going to make this some sort of deviation, But I changed my mind last minute. In this post I more or less just wanted to share some inspiration, Lately I've been getting messages from people on DA and Tumblr asking about college and telling me their dreams and aspirations.. But then it gets sad. Over 90% of these people I've been talking too are telling me that they won't ever be able to get into their dream college / Universities.. and ultimately they won't ever get to do their dream jobs. I would just like to say..Share Some Inspiration2 years ago in Personal More Like This
That's A Load Of Bullshit.
There is no reason you can't pursue your dreams and do what you love as a job, And if anyone tells you different they are lying. Some people want to hold other people back from living their lives and doing what they love simply because they never got the chance to do it themselves.. they listened to some one who said " You can't "
Well I am here to tell you "You
