Get to know the real me in this interview...If you have 10 min to spare, you can get to know me in this intimate interview for the upcoming (hopefully) documentary "Cosplay Boom".

Info can be found on there, yes!~~
We now have a deadline~! May 5th, Shadow Italy's original conception day, is the day we plan to send out the download of the reboot of Dreamtalia!! So about a month~
Yes you heard right. After all of the time of saying it will not be available for years because we wanted to release it all at once, a lot of conversations have been made and the deicision is being made to give out a playable version of Dreamtalia from chapters 1-8.
Originally we weren't going to, to keep it like HetaOni. But really, we don't have that kind of fame for it to spread. With the hiatus everything is dimming a little, at least I've noticed. So to help save the fandom, we're putting this out.
However, our truly wonderful coder Skitzen is working extremely hard to get it going by a certain specia

~ What I Did to Get Published ~Wow, I'm getting a lot of inquiries in regards to the publishing process and what I went through to try to get my book, The Sorcerer's Dragon, published. That's awesome, I feel special to have sparked some inspiration for some of you writers out there! I don't mind sharing any of my experiences with you guys in what I did and I hope what I post here will help you guys who are also trying to get your stuff published as well~ What I Did to Get Published ~9 months ago in Personal More Like This
For starters, this didn't happen to me over night. I first started working on the Armageddon Series when I was 14 years old back in 2004 after I watched the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie and after I wrote out my Harry Potter fanfiction (which was over 330 pages and I handwrote this on notebook paper XD). After I wrote out my first fan fiction, I then decided that I wanted to write my own original story. I loved fantasy so much and I loved dragons. Plus, I also just read through Eragon and Eldest not long before
HetaOni Complete Full Game Info!!!-HetaOni Complete Full Game Info!!!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alright everyone. I've heard a lot of rumors going around that there IS an ending to the real HetaOni. And/or Pianodream has it. I am here to tell everyone what is really going on, and clear up everything that's getting the poor fans excited for nothing..
1- There is NO real ending to Hetaoni.
2- :iconPianodream: is /NOT/ the original creator everyone! She merely made a playable English version for the fans to enjoy and play themselves. And did a very great job at making it.
3- Piano will not, and does not have a 'full game' made. She has made the game to the exact point where the original has ended. Nothing more. Please stop pestering her about this. There is nothing she is keeping from everyone. Let her be.
4-And for the few people who think :iconskitzen: (me) was the creator of the original.. No, sadly I am not. I have only made :iconHetaOni-LC: Which is pretty much a fangame of the original. It will, have endings. But it is not to be assumed a

My parents just recently got divorced back in October of 2013, only a few months ago... my mother just recently got re-married about a couple of weeks ago to this person I don't really like but, I don't really care about that... My father didn't even show up for the damn court hearing. Shows how much he really fucking cares about our family, doesn't it? He's a drug addicted asshole who treats women like shit and he's an abusive alcoholic towards me when I was younger, blaming me for the reason why he was stuck with my mother because I was born out of wedlock...

But this also brings in another thought.
Would Dreamworks be willing to read the first chapter of the comic once I complete it, make a copy, and mail it to them? I am a little nervous about that, and I dunno if they really would read it. And if anyone knows how to go about doing such a thing, please tell me, because I am conflicted.

Never caring about a single soul
Countless battles; eyes glowing like ember
A lonely heart with a bottomless hole
Although he seems a cruel evil demon
He is perfection in every way
As he stands in the distant horizon
So beautiful in the dawn of day
Wanting power, but never satisfied
With his sword, he's fought for so very long
A man with a past, but nothing to hide
Doing what he wants, even if it's wrong
Wandering the lands, searching for something more
All of this time, never knowing what for

I called my mom earlier today to let her know what's been going on and, of course, as I was on the phone with her, my damn father showed up at my door and started knocking on it. I freaked the fuck out and I went and hid in the back of my apartment like a fucking coward while keeping the door locked... My dad looked like he was on some sort of drug or something, he just didn't look... right... If he keeps persisting me, I will call the police.
It pissed me off because it seemed that they think that they can just show up at my apartment and that I'll answer it for them, especially when they made no arrangement with me first... but they got the message when I emailed back (I don't have my sister's phone number and I'm not wanting to talk to my grandparents, since they haven't wanted to talk to me for the last 2 years)

Facebook is bad for artists?I had some interesting findings after posted a poll on DA regarding my Facebook Fan Page. Many have commented that they are against Facebook and discourage me from posting art over there due to various reasons, and one of them due to the possibility of having my art being used freely by this social media site. So here are my thoughts based on my experience running a FB page for a year.Facebook is bad for artists?4 months ago in Personal More Like This
The main reason for me to set up a facebook page, is to extend my fanbase beyond DA, to the not so artist-oriented demographics. I have been using DA, and only DA, as my art HQ for the past decade and will always be. Facebook is acting as an outpost to connect with my fans in a more responsive manner due to the convenience of making posts, replies, making announcements and sharing images. Honestly, it is not my intention to choose between DA and FB, but to use both concurrently for different purposes.
So far I have not encountered any incident of FB using my images for advertising or any other comm

my friend, that is not the case in this event. ALL entries will be have the same amount of chance, the final winner is not based on how well the drawing or writing is done. the winner will be RANDOM. you are asked to do your best because you owe it to yourself for a good piece of work. The final piece will remain your own property, im just trying to get some activities going here. XD
you need to do one of the following to quality as an entry.
1. a drawing of a lamia in any media (traditional, digital, photo-manip, also welcome)
2. a short story involving a lamia. preferably no longer than 1 page.
there are a few versions of the lamia monster, what i am looking for is the one that is top half human, and lower half snake. now most of these are portrayed as female, but if you are up to it, feel free to make a male one.
also regarding the hair, you are free to make it snake hair or norma

For this contest you'll be imaging what it would be like if Disney made it into a movie.
Be sure to read all the rules and clarification!
- Pick a favorite book of yours and imagine it as a Disney movie! Design what you think the characters would look like if Disney developed them.
- Be sure to mention what book you chose in your description.
- Any book will do except erotica/porn of course. If Disney can make Hunchback of Notre Dame into a book, you can choose anything, really. Just Disney-fy it!
- You don't have to draw in any of the Disney styles to enter. Using your own is just dandy!
- Don't use a book/ book series Disney's already visited. Where's the fun in that?
- We'd prefer it if the book wasn't already made into a movie by another company, but if you think that said movie could've been better, go ahead!
- Fairytales and folklore are also okay to use
- Don't use comic books this time. They're already heavily illustrated enough, we think.
- Don't use your own book. I

Chad Love Lieberman
As I have been made aware by at least 300-ish notes, Chad Love Lieberman has illegally taken many artworks from deviantart including mine, trying to sell them for thousands of dollars on their art4love.com and MarkYourSpot.com websites.
(both urls' have been currently brought down for copyright infringement)
Screenshots from the now shut down website:
Urls are owned by Chad Love Lieberman and Craig Pravda.
Craig Pravada on facebook:
Is he Craig associated with Chad? Has he been deceived by Chad? Why does Craig own the url for the site that hosted stolen art?
