Alloweth me to become quite sappy, dear deviants and beloved watchers, for I have to admit something I've been feeling about y'all. I escaped dA to be on Tumblr and I'll tell you - it's fun, it's addicting, it's just awesometastic - but I could not help but keep on checking back here. And you know when they say stuff like "They are not actual friends," or "Once ya leave, they'll leave too and go on to check out other things like you were never there"?
I believed that, I accepted it, it sounds more than realistic and I've seen a grand many cases in which an artist leaves this site/any site and everyone kinda vanishes on 'em. Makes sense.
But dudes. I come back on after a whole month and eight days to throw very simple sketches and whatever from Tumblr at you guys and then the biggest surprise hit me that you all are still there. Although I've been gone for such a while and have be

Is there anyhoo or anyone out here in the world o' the arts that have a rather powerful fear having to do with letting others down? Now I don't mean the world because - let's face it - the world is too massive for us to give one bloody damn about what it thinks. I mean beloved friends and allies in general, specifically the ones over the internetty universe here.
I assume that a few of your hands are popping on up right now.
I admit to an atrocity that this is a tiny summary of me asking for forgiveness here; because, most guiltily, I have not been replying to notes and comments that I have been getting, including the messages on my active tumblr account. ;w;
It just always makes me feel so rotten knowing that soooo many of you say such beautiful and hilarious and epic things but I lack me proper time to answer back or start the puniest of conversations.

Jeez... I mean, it was beyond wonderful seeing that all of y'all were still here but I admit that it was rather much a shock for I thought half the universe here had vanished.

I wanna say something to y'all. It is something simple and perhaps a tad quaint, let me say. It is a story about you, or a part of you, or a part of you that you are in denial of, or your dog.

The message story whateverthehell is this: YOU AIN'T PERFECT AND SHALL NEVER BE PERFECT EVER IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE, even if you were to wish to God or Walt Disney and they decided "okay," then rained a bucket of raw perfection upon you.

As a homosapien of strange manner, it is a general thought to strive down the path of perfection even if it means sacrificing every brain cell in your noggin and every tissue of confidence you have ever had. To be beautiful, like the light. To be accepted, like ink on an essay.

One day, humans began to realize the dangerous power that creatures contain, or perhaps the high God from above hated the creatures, some of the creatures were being chased by foolish humans, hunted to be killed, some happened to have fallen to the mantel of the Earth as to said that God had made such hole as prison for them.

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recently worked on “Wreck It Ralph,” and has become active in the story department, where he dreams up fresh narratives and new characters with fellow Story Artists and Disney directors.
But more and more, he is being recognized for his own style and own creations

Doo de doo doo, looking for a new scanner, doo de doo. Figures the old one would go tits up right after Christmas-- What the? Avatar the Last Airbender: Bobble Battles? *reads back of box* 'Command the armies of the Water Tribe, Earth Kingdom, and Fire Nation in this unique strategy game'.
............So, let me get this straight. It's an Avatar battle-strategy video game, for the PC, using the same chibi style as the School Shipping short, that would allow me to fight any of the show's major battles from whatever side I choose..............and it's $4.99.
*throws game on counter*
Cashier: Would you like a bag for that?
Me: SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

My Brother's Girlfriend: Did you know the kids can't watch Brave? They're scared of it.
Me: Really? You're scared of the bears?
My Niece: *nods*
My Brother's Girlfriend: And yet they watch Doctor Who and that's no problem!
My Brother: Yeah, people getting vaporized? Not a problem. Bears? Oh hell no.
Me: They watch Doctor Who?
My Niece: I love Doctor Who! *imitates a Dalek* Exterminate! Exterminate!
Me: That is, bar none, the greatest thing I've ever seen.
And thus, she and I imitated Daleks the entire car ride and even when we got to the theatre. Suddenly, I know the joys of being an auntie.
Oh yeah, and Rise of the Guardians was fantastic.

HOW IT WORKS
Thursday, Day 1 of Comic-ConThursday was the first full day of Comic-Con, and artists, cosplayers, and fans (oh, my!) strapped on their most comfortable Con Shoes and continued rocking out in San Diego. It was also the day of deviantART's first panel, "How-To: Motion Books," which was so inspiring, audience members nearly had to be physically removed from the premises because the conversations ended long after they took the microphones away.Thursday, Day 1 of Comic-Con in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Sitting on the panel were $spyed and $techgnotic from deviantART, *BenWolstenholme, =LiamSharp, and *nunyerbidniss from Madefire, and *davegibbons, perhaps best-known for his collaboration with Alan Moore on "Watchmen." The topic was an explanation of the recent partnership of Madefire and deviantART -- who met at Comic-Con j

Wednesday, Preview Night of Comic-Con
Wednesday, July 17, 2013
When the bustle of tourists in Downtown San Diego is replaced by the flailing of fandoms, and the street signs around the Convention Center have changed from English to Dothraki (not Klingon, like past years), you know it’s time for San Diego Comic-Con 2013!
Wednesday the 17th kicked off this year’s Preview Night, and energy was high as this year’s Comic-Con sprang into motion with a flurry of activity. Many attendees treat the three-hour preview as a time to scan the showroom floor, mentally map places to hit on the later dates, and, of course, buy the must-have items that may be gone by Con’s end. There’s not a lot of cosplaying -- although there is some -- and vendors as
Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-ConNo matter how tired your feet are by what is actually Day 5 of Comic-Con, counting Preview Night, no matter how exhausted your body and empty your wallet, there's always a bit of sadness in the air when the last few hours of Comic-Con wind down.Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-Con in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and

So this morning was a little on the unpleasant side.
Just a little.
I'm fine now though. More or less. I'm much calmer now, at least. Ate some breakfast, took a shower, and browsed the internet a bit to calm down.
Yes, this is going to be a long story. If you do not wish to read or do not want your day dampened, I understand. If you will continue reading, then buckle up, because it's going to be a long and bumpy ride.
Before I go into detail about what happened, let me set up the situation my family and I are in. I have NEVER spoke of this publicly before. Ever. I've told a few close friends online, but that's about it. I may have hinted at it, but I have been too torn/scared/whatever to write about this. Not even my college friends know about this. Well, those with dA/Tumblr now will. So be it.
Okay, this is what has been happening: My father has been having an affair. For a very long time

But still... working life is tiring and depressing. I feel so stressful all the time. :iconsobplz: I have to do case research every single day. Plus, I'm going to start drafting a boat load of documents this week.... No more good night sleep for me... *sighs*
Now I live for the weekends like the rest of the working masses (with the exception of workaholics and people that enjoys their job).
Gahhh! I just need to finish 9 months to get the license. After that I'm thinking of continuing my studies overseas. I'm hoping to do my Masters in UK. Ahhhh~! I really hope my dream will come true.
Anywhos, just wanted to notify my awesome dA watchers that I won't be submitting art that much. But I'll try to submit once a month or something. I hope.
