vivid dream essay - drowned
</b>"Recount your most vivid dream."</b>
    Drowning is one of my top fears; among parasites, violent illness, and spiders. I dream about things that I fear sometimes, and wake up a little bit scared, but am able to carry on throughout my day without my thoughts drifting back to the dream. Though one night a few months ago, I had the most vivid and lifelike dream I can ever remember having in which I nearly died by drowning in a raging flood of rain. For the rest of that day I could not take my mind off of the dream and how it made me feel.
     The dream started out innocently enough. My cousin Stephanie, who was my best friend for most of my childhood, was sitting with me on the couch in the living room of my house, gazing blankly outside through the screen door. Suddenly it was raining outside. The next thing I know, we were out there in the pouring rain, tossing a small ball to each other. This was no normal ball tossing, because

Learning something new one pixel at a time
I've grown up around art my entire life. Art history, traditional media, new media,'s in my blood. As computers became popular I adopted the things technology could provide for we artists. But with the swell in new media that has occurred in the past 10, 15 years, it's impossible to know everything about everything.
Though you know I try ;)
One of what digital media brought along was something I had never considered nor understood how to do: pixel art. Sure, it seems straight forward. Art made of pixels. Kind of like the stippling technique that developed out of Impressionism, kind of like mosaic, and kind of something all its own.
This week I "swapped" fetish for Pixel Art by talking to ShoneGold about the basics of this tedious but surprisingly impressive artform.

Hai, I'm Amanda. 8-) I used to be obsessed over dA. I attempt to come back sometimes but new stuff scares me away.

Favourite cartoon character: Vash the Stampede ♥ ♥ ♥

That feeling when I look at my gallery...

...and am embarrassed by 9/10ths of it >_< I kind of want to put most everything in the scraps or simply delete it.
Does anyone else feel this way about their old work?
