Sharing is CaringSo as most of you know I posted a video tutorial of me making one of my dragons on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vCiPn7MUjw&context=C4b5df20ADvjVQa1PpcFNlI9Ovm88GNUagg5YVFu4EzQY19W7S2b8= It's been pretty cool seeing the dragons people have made from watching it. I think it might be fun to post them in a journal, just to see how different and unique they all turned out.Sharing is Caring2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know some of you have expressed concern that the video will just encourage copycats. Well, after over two years of posting online I have learned a few things. First, imitation and copying is inevitable. It sucks but it IS going to happen at some point if your work becomes popular enough. I do have copycats, and I do keep an eye on them. I can't really do much about them, unless they blatantly copy a design. So I've learned to live with it. I appear to have a very protective fanbase, as I am constantly alerted by you good people when anyone might be copying me. I like to think that most people can figure out
Don't Like it? Don't Play!!!Is it really so much to ask someone who's complaining incessantly about how much Blizzard has fucked up and how much WoW sucks these days to just drop it? And it's not just because I'm sick and tired of hearing about it or even because said someone's opinion is the only one that counts (to them), it's for the sake of avoiding what I know is only going to lead to a huge argument since my opinion is vastly different. But of course, aforementioned someone has to finish complaining before it's dropped. Instans headache. Simple answer: if you don't like it and what Blizz has done with it, QUIT!!! Stop playing the game, save yourself $15 a month, and move on to something else so the rest of us can enjoy it and so that my fun is no longer ruined by your attitude!! "Oh her, I made a goblin shaman just to try. Haha, their quests are so fun! You get to save Thrall." "Just more proof Blizzard favors the Horde." 0.o Yeah, that's exactly what it is, it's got nothing to do with the difference betweeDon't Like it? Don't Play!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Well Tiny Toppers ( I've been dying to say that XD) I have an exciting announcement!!
We've begun to make FULL SIZED Top Hats! :iconsobeautifulplz:
I'm so excited to announce this because I know it's been suggested to us a lot and we've thought about it a lot as well and we just decided to go for it! We've already made a full sized Classic Mad Hatter and I will probably post pictures of it tomorrow ^__^
I'm excited to see what everyone thinks, and if everyone has a favorite hat they'd like to see turned full size!! ^___^ Which hats do you think would go over best in full top hat form? :iconawwwplz:
I can't wait to hear everyone's thoughts
Anyways, That's all for now! We will be attending a few cons in the upcoming weeks, but I'll write another journal about that ^_^ I just couldn't wait to tell everyone
I hope you're all staying fancy, keeping your pinkies up, and waxing your mustaches

Katsucon and Getting Beat UpHey y'all!Katsucon and Getting Beat Up10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I'll be at Katsucon the weekend after this, for Friday only (just going down for the day with some friends). If you're awake at 9 am on Friday, you can catch me at the gazebo with the big Sakizou cosplay group! I'll be dressed as Alice, so just look for the Alice with the toy white rabbit. :3 Katsucon is in National Harbor, Maryland, at the fabulous Gaylord Hotel.
So that's all fun and good, but also I wanted to mention a thing on here about something I hear all the time. I get a lot of feedback from fans who, for reasons unknown to me, bemoan the fact that they wish they looked like me or were popular like me. Seriously. People say this. I can't count how many girls write to me and say they wished they were me, because they feel they're not pretty or outgoing enough. I have nothing but sympathy for young people, especially girls, who feel they aren't attractive or well-liked, or feel like outsiders in their school or social
Regarding the Boston Marathon BombingI've tried to write this journal a few times, but I am having trouble finding words.Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I live in Massachusetts, so Boston is "my home" when I travel and the city that I most strongly associate with myself. I'm mad. I don't know how to feel about things like this other than to be mad. In an age of immediate and 24 news, it's hard to not know who or why, and endlessly frustrating to watch people fight and blame without any factual information.
I do love the quote from Fred Rogers that has been going around. But I also think about the words of people like George Carlin. Is this just how we live now? I feel like people my age, who were teens during 9/11, live our lives just assuming that any and every day there's a chance we could be violently and senselessly killed by a random act of violence. Does that mean that the people who do these things have succeeded?

Payback is Such a BitchSo the Kirin Tor - US server is plagued by many awful characters, but none so terrible as the one I've mentioned several times: Ruel.Payback is Such a Bitch1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now before you say "Oh Jordan, can't you just get over him?" let me tell you a little story.
Myself and my friends have been playing on others servers, branching out, and basically not bothering anyone (we've not even really been on KT much except to raid). A few weeks ago while I was PVPing with my friends, I zoned out of the BG after it was over and made a dash to use the restroom. Since I play on a fairly dead RP server I wasn't expecting to get ganked by anyone. However, I heard the clattering of armor and weapons, and a female Night Elf screaming. Mine. Ruel had logged over onto his paladin, Nascha, and was attempting to kill me while I was afk.
So a few days ago, Ruel told a friend of mine that he wished I would really die. As in, in real life. This terrible person actually wished physical harm on me. And so I got to thinking, "Huh...What an ass. W

It was a hell of a long flight! Okay, so I left at 11pm on Sunday night to LAX because I had a 12:45am flight to Philadelphia (I think those are call red-eye flights?), we landed at 8am-ish. BUT my next flight to Madrid wasn't until 6pm of that same day, so I had to spend 10 hours in the airport waiting for my connecting flight. It was insane - like I really thought I would go insane. My entire Monday was spent in Philadelphia's International Airport. Fortunately it's a large airport so I walked it whole like three times and that killed some time, and made me hungry enough to actually eat with hunger and not to eat just to eat, I s

The voice acting was done by ~DustyOldRoses and MrDude did the lip syncing for me. They really went out of their way to contribute to this project in a big way, so I want to give them a super special thanks for their work!
Oh yeah, and I'm working on updating the spy model too to accomodate the 18,000 new hats since I released it last year. The model looked horrible to me, so I redid like 75% of it a while back. I re-rigged it but I still have to do the faceposing and refit all of those hats. And I also redid the scarf last night, so I'll get that done asap. Kinda busy right now, but I do want to get that update out.
The BanhammerI've been noticing that more and more people in comments that are banned every day. It's even happening to people who seldom break the rules and when so, they're so minor you'd need to study the offence with caution in order to notice it. I'm not exactly studying up on why these people are being banned, but It's frequent, and It's distributed swiftly and without mercy. I myself was banned about a year and a half ago, some of you may still refer to me as Deathburg3r, :icondeathburg3r: Except that I was banned for impersonation and trolling. *Note that I wasn't just making stupid comments, I was digging deep into people's personal issues and.....well, I'm not getting into that.*The Banhammer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also for drawing many dicks and saying the word "nigger" a lot.
This ban took weeks to happen. I'm seeing these accounts on for a few years as well as a few days being banned suddenly, for reasons I dare say are nonsensical.
I'd like our readers to give their personal definition of the phrase.

Comments on pages are no longer in chronological order! They don't seem to be in any order at all!
This makes checking for new comments nearly impossible now...
I don't even... how... why are they trying so hard to ruin the site?!
Sure, a lot of the horrible changes are for profit, but I can't see how mixing up the order of the comments could be profitable in any way!
Anyway, is Google+ popular yet?
I'm gonna go have a look at it, and I'll try starting up a page on there... do Google+ pages work in a similar way to Facebook pages?
I'm looking forward to watching Facebook die.
It might take a while to get back the 46k likes I have on there though...
Actually, those likes are pretty worthless. Most of those guys don't even see my posts unless I pay Facebook to "promote" them. Ugh.

He parked his car and got out, whistling the tune that he had been listening to on the radio as he walked into the convenience store. He set about buying himself pre-made sandwiches, sodas, beers, some other things to snack on and a bag of ice for the brand new ice chest that was sitting in the back of his recently acquired car.
There was a giddy bounce in his step, a smile on his face as he moved through the isles collecting the things he wanted to eat and drink for the next few days. He sauntered up to the check out counter, winking at the cute little cashier behind it. She blushed prettily, her black hair cut in a pixie.
"What's got you in such a good mood?" She asked sheepishly as she rang up his things and bagged them for him.
"Ah, nothing. I found me a nice little fishing hole and thought I'd spend a few days seeing about getting me some fish." He smiled at her, his bright blue eyes twinkling behind his glasses.

Just for the recordlol sorry about the journal spamJust for the record1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, just for the record I'm not a big fan of bleedman. At least not anymore. Someone said my art looks a bit bleedman-y sometimes but thats probably cuz I used to copy his art style and its not completely out of my system. Emphasis on used to. I used to be one of his fans but the fan base is just...ugh. Kinda embarrassing to look back at. Not that every one thats a fan of bleedman is a bad person. A lot of them are really talented and cool. And bleedman isn't a terrible artist but I do miss his old work. His stories are shit. I don't regret saying that. Sugar bits is crap, grim tales WHAM, and AB where bad. And Im going to take a wild guess and say GTFO will be crap to. And hell I didn't really bother to read PPGD I just looked at the pictures. That's all I really liked his comics for.
And I honestly don't like the bleedman army. I really don't. But Im not looking for a fight about it. If you like his style and wa
How To Photograph Your CraftsThe absolute number one cause of rejection of DD suggestions for most Artisan Craft CVs is poor photography. There is nothing worse than seeing an otherwise brilliant piece ruined by a dodgy photo. But even beyond DD acceptance, if you want to people on dA to be able to appreciate your skill you need to be able to show your work off to advantage.How To Photograph Your Crafts3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Sometimes I'll tell a self-suggester that I can't feature their work because of the quality of the photography and they'll inevitably reply, "Oh, I'll have to get a better camera."
Repeat after me: the tools never make the artist.
You don't need a $9000 sewing machine to stitch a dress, you don't need a $1000 stand mixer to bake a cake, and you similarly don't need a top of the range SLR to take a brilliant photograph. It's all in how you take the photo.
