Sexuality, is it a choice?Sexuality, is it a choice?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
**Please feel free to re-blog this post through my tumblr page!:
Also, a personal explanation on asexuality.
Ok, so maybe I'm not really asking this question. But oddly enough the subject has been bouncing up and down a lot recently. I have seen large arguments on facebook and other social networks that for some reason are getting on the "sexuality is a choice" bandwagon. To be honest... I thought we were finally past this point of narrow-minded-thoughts.
So according to this choice in sexuality, this means we can choose to be gay, straight, asexual, bisexual, pansexual, or etc.
But it doesn't work like that. We don't have a "choice". the only choice we have is whether to come out with it or not. The choice to hide our sexuality, the choice to ke

Get ready for the Apocalypse, babyGet ready for the Apocalypse, baby2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So according to the timezone where I live, we just reached THE FATAL DAY, OH GAWD
But don't worry peeps! >:3 Imma save aaaall of you right now. I'll head butt the meteorite, seal the poorly fucked volcanos, pimp slap eventual zombies and kick the arse of whatever else dares bother our little planet today. Stay quietly at home and savor your tea, beer, partner, all what you want; Nono takes care of everything.
Oh well. Just in case something happens to me during that little cleaning routine, just know that I love you, folks! :'3
It isn't one more apocalypse which is going to scare me.

Contest Journal (Apology and more prizes!)EDIT: So, one of my DA friends brought it to my attention that I was being sort of irrational yesterday The deadline will still be August 15th but it will not be cancelled. I now have four entries. I mean, I truly need a couple more but I have enough so that I can't cancel it. Thank you to everyone who has entered and even said they would enter XD I'm rather excited to see what you will all come up with.Contest Journal (Apology and more prizes!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, this friend brought to my attention that the prizes weren't really sufficient. Well, they're been updated once more. I think everyone will be very pleased ;D
-No Bases (preferably. While this contest is mainly for a design, I haven't been a huge supporter of bases lately.)
-When you finish your entry, note it to me :3
Alright, the concept is very simple. There are four seasons, right? Spring, Winter, Summer, and Fall. I want all of you to design an outfit using the concept of one of the four seasons.
Example: Florence has picked the season, Summer. Florence
Gauging interest in a public Pony Pattern!Hi everyone! I've whipped up a cute little prototype pony and if there's enough interest I'll be offering the pattern to the public!Gauging interest in a public Pony Pattern!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you can see, it's quite a tiny pony! It stands around 10 inches tall. I will be making a prototype of one of the show characters, complete with mane, tail, and embroidery to use as an example of what can be done with the pattern.
So if enough people are interested I'll offer the pattern. It will likely go for sale on my etsy shop for about $10 for the base pattern. I may include manes and tails, or possibly even embroidery files thought that would drive the price up a bit.
Please feel free to spread the word. I'll keep everyone updated on the progress of the pattern!
Edit 1: I've updated with a new prototype! I fixed a few problem areas in the pattern.
The Bizenghast Adventure Game!So I was talking with Clint Krause, the fellow who produced the original Bizenghast Adventure Game, which was a role-playing manual set in the Bizenghast universe, published in 2008 by TOKYOPOP.The Bizenghast Adventure Game!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It had a very limited run and is damn-near impossible to find nowadays (the only copy I've ever personally seen is the one I own!), so I asked Clint if he could hunt around for the original digital print copy of the book, so we could make it available for free download online to fans! Hopefully he'll be able to locate it, and much BZG-themed roleplaying will be available for your tabletop gaming pleasure very soon!

FailureWell, this is awkward.Failure3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?
On pricing your artwork and creating a career...I am going to be speaking at an "Entrepreneurship In The Arts" program later today, and I've been organizing my thoughts. One subject that is certain to come up; "how do you arrive at a fair price for your original artwork?" I have some definite ideas regarding that question.On pricing your artwork and creating a career...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was always told that the accepted model for artists and artisans, when it comes to pricing, was double your costs for materials, figure out an hourly price (double that for your retail price if you plan to have wholesale/retail differentials), add it up and there's your item price. I think this model is pure bullshit.
I was also told "charge what the market will bear!" Again, vague bullshit. What if you live in a depressed area? What if you live in a third world country? What if you're at some artist's ally at a little convention and there is a kid sitting next to you selling her character sketches for $5 each?
Here is what I think. There are so many variables when it comes to pricing original art. Yo

Tutorial Class!Hey creeps!Tutorial Class!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I get messages daily asking how I do what I do... and it's hard to explain in an e-mail. It normally ends up sounding like, "well, you know, you just... draw... a thing you like..." So it gets difficult to explain things like using a light table, detailing multiple sketches, how to choose an effective composition, or the mysterious things I do in Photoshop.
Well, my darling creeps, I have good news.
I was approached a few weeks ago by the fabulously enthusiastic people at SKILLSHARE to teach a class specifically on my style, and how to develop your own. They're filming me while I go through my steps, and I get to walk each student through it. Killer.
How this works is you enroll in my class on Skillshare: http://skl.sh/18l2qyx

Character TagThe Guidlines - Please don't remove these~!Character Tag3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Pick 10 of your characters.
2. Make sure you list all their names if the have more then one, i.e If they have an alias list it
3. Once you've picked your characters make sure you remember which number corresponds to which character before you start, this will become important later on
4. Without planning it or thinking about it, make your characters go through the scenarios using the first things that come to your mind for each one
5. Don't feel like you have to tone your characters down~! If they're a total jerk, make it so! We want to see how you feel your character would REALLY react to this!
6. Have fun~!
Hmm . . . lets use random SBNJ characters!

This happened to someone else not me.
I was walking around in a Target store, when I saw a Cashier hand this little boy some money back.
The boy couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old.
The Cashier said, 'I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this doll.'
Then the little boy turned to the old woman next to him: ''Granny, are you sure I don't have enough money?''
The old lady replied: ''You know that you don't have enough money to buy this doll, my dear.''
Then she asked him to stay there for just 5 minutes while she went to look a round. She left quickly.
The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand.
Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to.
'It's the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much for Christmas.
She was sure that Santa Claus would bring it to her.'
I replied to him that maybe Santa Claus would bring it to

I am SO SICK of being taken advantage of
If you can't take me seriously, then don't be my friend. All my life I've been teased and bullied, and I am fed up with no longer being treated my age. I'm younger than most of my friends online, but I'm PRETTY mature about stuff for my age, so DON'T take me for an idiot
I DO see comments, and I DO see activity. I'm not an asshole. And I have more than one friend at school, but I always include them both, more like they include me. YEAH, YOU CAN TALK TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE AT ONE TIME. I'm the WORST multitasker EVER but I can do it! I can do homework, talk, listen to music, play minecraft, and watch a video at the same time! And I'm the least intelligent person I KNOW.
STOP IT, I HAVE FEELINGS, SO DO MY FRIENDS.
I am on the verge of straight out leaving people, this is absolutely ridiculous. I get if you're busy with school and homework and what not, but if you are
