Feeling Good, wrote a Lorax one-shotI wrote a one-shot for Lorax and Ted's daughter Cassey. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I had always thought that, being the guardian of the forest, the Lorax understands the circle of life and has seen deaths, whether they be natural or sudden. But considering the Once-Ler was the first person he came to build a strong friendship with, I always thought that his passing would be difficult for the Lorax to stomach. He knew it would happen, but he had not expected to mourn this much.Feeling Good, wrote a Lorax one-shot in Personal More Like This
Enter Ted's kids.
Oncie and Cassey build a mentor-pupil relationship with the Lorax. They admire him and he teaches them things about the forest, and while he still likes his solitude and sometimes finds the children to be even the least bit irritating at times, he still enjoys their company. Not only because of their innocence but because they help keep his mind off of the good times he spent with his best friend.
I might post it. Might become a one-shot story line, I dunno. I'm still not happy w
Devious Journal EntryEDIT: I know some people don't read journals and I know that most of those people are little kids who would rather just look at pictures. Which is understandable. But when they all come calling me a jerk or something for being snappy just because I am sick of drawing PnF, then yeah, expect me to be a jerk. I am not here to draw for YOUR pleasure, I am here because I WANT to draw. I got too much stress in that fandom, and although I am still a fan of that show, too much has happened for me to return to drawing it. I don't need to draw them in order to still be a fan.Devious Journal Entry in Personal More Like This

Oh my godddd I just woke up from the most fun dream ever! I dreamt me, DiGi and infractus met up in Edinburgh in the city center to do a little convention for the comic. We were sitting at a table when a couple of Gen cosplayers walked in and we all squealed a lot. But then one by one by one by one TONS of cosplayers showed up of all the Gens, old and new and original. Then this amazing cosplayer showed up as Imagni and we were all having this epic little (large) picnic outside in the sun.
Next thing we got surprise flashmobbed by a huge group of Numeratti cosplayers and the BEST and funniest Pendula. Our two groups were just throwing insults at eachother... oh god it was hilarious. The banter was the best. So this one girl got an idea to do this big street parade, Pendula jumps in and starts ordering everyone around like an events manager XD;

25 Things I learned being a Comic Artist in 2011The following list contains intense amounts of SARCASM for the purpose of satire and humor.25 Things I learned being a Comic Artist in 2011 in Personal More Like This
1. Never offer artistic advice or hint at the possibility that the way young and inexperienced groups of artists work might in some way be flawed.
2. Every comic must be inherently drawn better and be funnier than the last.
3. Humor is NOT relative/subjective.
4. Nothing is funny. Ever.
5. Even the most trivial aspects of your comic must be taken 100% seriously.
6. Failure to incorporate conflicting suggestions for improvement = incapable of accepting criticism.
7. Trying to quelch flame wars also inexplicably = incapable of accepting criticism.
8. Trying to explain your artistic decisions = incapable of accepting criticism.
9. Having lots of watchers = having an inflated ego.
10. Reaching the frontpage = getting Daily Deviation.
11. Every character you draw (even ones you do for commission/jobs) = your personal opinions and beliefs which you must obviously follow rigidly IRL.

Far too often I get e-mails telling me that one of my comics has been re-posted on some other site, usually one of those lol sites like funnyjunk, or 9gag, or damnlol.

Artist Intent vs Fan CriticismsThis has been a subject I've been interested in for years, and one which I personally struggle with on a near constant basis: Artist's intent versus fan criticisms. Before we begin I just want to make this clear that this journal is NOT about "ignoring criticisms" or any sort of endorsement of such an action. I'm gonna be accused of it, of course, but I just wanted to get that out of the way right now.Artist Intent vs Fan Criticisms in Personal More Like This
As I've been observing fan interactions over the years I've noticed a severe increase in a sense of entitlement: IE: that if you love something enough you have a "right" to force the creators to change their content to suit your personal preferences. We saw this play out to the extremes this past summer with the Mass Effect 3 ending debacle, and we see it play out to a much lesser extent here on DA quite a bit.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I think I need time away from the internet. Both to relax and to brush up on my artwork. I am genuinely sick of all the hate surrounding my namesake online, and when I say "genuinely," I mean it. The stress that the recent resurgence of trolling I've gotten has caused me to be quite ill. I know I shouldn't let what anonymous people on the internet say about me get to me, but it does. I need time to recuperate, to spruce and fix up SYAC, and to get back to a point where I genuinely enjoy drawing again. Right now there's no love or passion in my artwork, and it's mostly because of my defeated attitude: "Why bother, they'll just tear it apart anyway."
That whole "project positive" has been a complete bust too. I failed to live up to the idea, and in the process got really sick. I guess trying to force out a constant positive attitude like that was a mistake.

Despite the fact that kickstarters are payed for by people who've made the decision they want to contribute their money to the project, Anita came under attack from gamers for "scamming" audiences when her fund far exceeded the target goal.

Wounds, bruises, and blood gush out the more you beat her up in this virtual game, and it's drawn some widespread attention.
Whether you agree with her viewpoint is not the issue, it's the fact that this retaliation is just "wrong" on so many levels. Do these people realize that what they're doing is shooting themselves in the foot? Making a video game where you beat up someone who's making
Mature themes in American AnimationWhen I first discovered Anime, my mind was blown. Here were Japanese animations being made which told adult stories with sex, violence, and all sorts of things I'd never seen before done in American films. As a teenager the constant pandering to children and the reluctance to accept more mature themes and ideas in American animated films pissed me off. Why can't american cartoons be taken more seriously and have stuff for adults too outside of South Park and The Simpsons?Mature themes in American Animation in Personal More Like This
In 1998 Stephen Spielberg tried to change that. After having a successful run of kids cartoons (Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pink and the Brain, etc), he took it a step further by giving us a PRIME TIME cartoon series aimed at adults.

It sucked and was a resounding failure.

Fandoms, Criticism Vlog, and Journals On FandomsFandoms, Criticism Vlog, and Journals in Personal More Like This
Like most people, I'm a fan of a lot of things. However I don't often wade deep into fandoms themselves. For example, I like MLP:FiM, but I wouldn't call myself a hardcore Brony by any stretch of the imagination, as is evident by my continued botches of cutie mark colors (something no hardcore fan would EVER screw up).
Part of the reason I don't delve too far into fandoms is because fans can get very... emotional... about their given fandom. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it can sometimes be a crutch. I like a variety of series, but I'm not gonna throw a tantrum because of an episode name, or an animation mistake, like some people do. I don't like how angry or defensive fandoms can get sometimes, and for the most part I think people need to just calm down and relax and not be so standoffish.
Fans are, for the most part, good people who are just enthusiastic about a show or series. Just try to keep that enthusiasm from dipping into the negative side of thing

I've had little to no time at all to concentrate on my commissions as I've been busy cleaning, cooking, decorating, calling, writing, driving... you know, the usual. Also, I will soon be upgrading to a new computer so that will also take some time as I have to do all the configurations and transfer all my files. I doubt I will have time to do some actual sketching until next year, so right now I'll be working in Photoshop and inking/colouring one of the commissions I already have sketched. As for the traditional New Year's Eve pic, I can't say if it's going to be made or not.(CLOSED!) Commissions, 12/2012 in Personal More Like This

If your name is missing from the queue list, please PM me.
NEW! I've lowered the prices on my cheesecake commissions and added new definitions for the mid-prized commission (you'll get a more detailed picture for this price than before)!
I will be working on them from November 2012 to early February 2013, after which I'll concentrate on other projects. If you miss your chance, you'll be able to try again later in 2013, probably during its last quarter. However, you can still PM me about from March 2013 onwards, I may have time to do a random commission every now and then!
Jingle All the Way (is a bad movie)Okay, so, the world didn't end three days ago and we got to Christmas, once again. Yay! I don't think there's that much to say this year, I've had my hands full of work, both here and both IRL. I'm a real Christmas nut, so that's partially to blame, I can't help it but whatever I do I end up stressing myself out with all the preparations.Jingle All the Way (is a bad movie) in Personal More Like This
As for 2013, I'm looking very much forward to it and a huge 'thank you' for that goes to all the wonderful people who have commissioned me during this year, not to mention those who didn't but nevertheless supported me by faving my art and taking their time to comment my pics. Early next year, I'm finally able to retire my current PC and take the step to the 64-bit era (yeah, I was lagging behind that badly). I still have one more commission that I'm probably able to finish this year and, if I can find time, I might be able to whip up a crude New Year's Eve pic as well. Those two will be the final pictures that I will be finishing with the help

On March 26th, Amid Amidi made a post on Cartoon Brew about Butch Hartman's latest project, YooToon Studios (see the post here: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/business/fairly-oddparents-creator-butch-hartman-plans-to-launch-online-animation-channel-yootoon.html). What you're looking at is a YouTube channel created and controlled by Hartman to promote online cartoons made by... wait for it... whoever submits his creations to him. That's right.
Little did I know how something like this would've affected me so deeply. I've been an animation fan ever since I was barely able to walk and the idea of making a cartoon, just like that, and having millions of people see it is simply way too wonderful to be true... and yet, here we are.
Oh wait, YouTube launched back in 2005. Guess I could've done this much sooner. Oh well. The point is, making a cartoon, having a well-known animator release it under his company and getting those views... man, wha

So, I'm once again stuck using my portable, which is even slower than my old PC and only has Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 installed on it. To put it bluntly, I'm stuck and steamed until I get my computer back (I still have one more commission to finish).Temporary (art) hiatus in Personal More Like This
What this also means is that I may have to postpone my erotic fan art's fifth anniversary and all the things I planned on doing for prepartions. It's still going to happen but I doubt I'll make it before March 3rd. As a person who prefers to plan things well ahead, this stings quite hard.

UPDATE #1: my brain finally caught up after the initial shock and I realized that even though I got the news via email from a good friend, no sources were mentioned besides Genndy Tartakovsky and Lauren Faust answering to fans' questions about it. I don't know Genndy's Twitter account or even if he mentioned anything about it on that particular service but I found some vague information from Lauren: https://twitter.com/Fyre_flye/status/265117167928872960.
Again, sorry if this turns out to be fake (or rather, hooray!), I just tend to be very passionate about things that I love and the mere idea of having such a perfect show like PPG to be rebooted is just... no. Why not create something original or, if you absolutely have to use the same franchise, continue the story or create a spin-off? The lousy thing about the remakes is that they tend to completely overshadow the original product (unless they really, really suck). Also, what
About the webcam imagesAs most of you know, I run a side project on the webcam section of my dA page where I highlight cartoon episodes, short animation, animated TV specials and feature-length animations that I consider to fail one way or another. Instead of just placing a screencap there, without any explanation (because there's no text field option for the webcam), I made this thing into a "what if" scenario where the cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000 has to endure watching bad cartoons. Seeing the iconic Shadowrama on top of a screencap pretty much tells you all that need to know. I do write descriptions for each and every webcam picture that are hosted by Photobucket but I don't expect people to go there and read them so the Shadowrama treatment is still, IMO, a must. I aim to change the image on a monthly basis and highlight episodes from different cartoons.About the webcam images in Personal More Like This

As you all may have noticed, we're still alive, there were no doomsday as some people proclaimed, so we're all good. For me personally, I never believed in doomsday since from day 1. I guess you can say that I'm more a faithful person who puts her trust in God and not some people who claim things, and then earning money out of it. What's most strange though according to the articles I read from newspaper is that the Mayan people themselves never actually believed in the idea of the world coming to an end, only that their calender stops in 2012. They were even asked why people outside the world panicks about it. Like for instance the people who fled to France to hide in mountains, because they assumed that it is the "safest place" in case of any natural distaster

Other reasons I have, which probably is what slows my drawing process down is my computer,..its not doing well and it hates me =,(.

But when we went to go watch it in 3D it sucked, the glasses didnt even work. So the only other thing I got yesterday was a freaking ice cream from razzmatazz in the mall.

Today captain declared as "REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY".
The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".
With these words, captain gave me two old tennis rackets. The tennis rackets had yellow duck-tape stickers on them with words "DELETE" and "BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESS".
The spam can attack didn't end there, Pilot's job for today was hiding behind building ruins and throwing the spam cans at me at random intervals with yells of "INCREASE YOUR GENITAL SIZE!", "RUSSIAN BRIDE LOVES YOU" and "I AM NIGERIAN PRINCE WITH 56 BILL
