I thank you for all the comments you leave me. Of all the things you've done, all your commenting is one of my favorite. It's hard for me when I hardly get people to comment. And I've always appreciated it, even the times I may of forgotten to reply, or missed your comments. No matter what I always read them. In fact, you may like to know when I am feeling down in the dirt about my art, or unmotivated, I enjoy reading all the comments you left me. So, I thank you. :heart: For everything you've done.

You have always been a great friend to talk to. You are always here when I need to talk, or just feel like being weird. You are a sweet girl, and your art is adorable. I absolutely love talking to you, never think I don't you little weirdo! :heart: Thank you for all your support and love.

Sometimes I may not always get to reply to you either, but you've shown me excellent support. You have occasionally joined me when I went live, and you always look at my art, even if you don't comment. I am thankful for the fact of you always read the description and ask me about things :heart: (which reminds me, and don't hate me for not yet telling you bout 7th moon lol I've been a little busy to write up a specialized description. I will very soon I promise :heart: )

You support me in the bad times and the good times. You are very sweet, and I hope we can continue to be good friends no matter how long time progresses. :heart:

Patreon page Launched! by Bestestcat


Patreon.com/Bestestcat

I made a Patreon page at www.patreon.com/Bestestcat! I am offering sketches, layered psds, odd doodles and more, things that used to be impossible to obtain from me. Help me keep doing what I love and sharing more of what you love c:


Conventions 2017
Planned:
Tora-con - Rochester institute, NewYork Saturday April 22nd

Considering:
Rockcon
Blurrycon

7th Moon

7th moon is the title of the book I am adapting as a graphic novel, in the form of a manga. I acquired this job from the author of the book directly, upon meeting him at RIT for Tora-con. I have been working any free chance I get around my busy course schedule, to create book one of the 7th moon manga. We meet each Tora-con and we seek people to support the book and the adaptation of the manga. Any support to me on my Patreon Page will benefit me in the creation of the graphic novel, and help fund me as an artist.

7th Moon is a corporation that provides food and medicine, but also holds power with an unstoppable army.  When two soldiers, Hidariude and Kichiku, realize the destruction they cause on on their first mission, they question their purpose. Along with a neko named Keisei, an orphan named Douji, and a martial artist named Ryu,  they combine the mystic arts with advanced technology to go from the company's greatest assets to their most dangerous liability.
No one got 100k? Anyone got something close to?


Just as states.
As I'm approaching I'm willing to offer a Kiribian. (I'm at 99,533  )


Rules


  1. You must be a watcher. I mean if you want my art and like it, i mean its only fitting
  2. You have to catch 100,000 exactly.
  3. The screenshot must be the entire screen not just the number.
  4. you must note me the screenshot.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

    • Artist
    • Coder
    • Emo
  4. Are you left or right handed?

    • I write with both, but digital art I most commonly use right. I have an OCD father that has to change everything around on my computer just to shut it down, or something so simple. So why change it. (he doesn't mess much with my computer but when I am out of town i put him in charge of weekend updates and such)
  5. What was your first deviation?

  1. What is your favourite type of art to create?

    • That's a hard choice. I enjoy playing with my camera with some photography, and it's become easier for me to do more so now than before; Although I love doing my usual manga/anime. (i just haven't been able to post any of it lately D:)
  2. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    • I think i would master the style that's soft toned yet.
      I wouldn't quite say this but similar. it's not a style everyone can do.
  3. What was your first favourite?

    • err.. that's a lot to dig through.. my official first favorite, i will not share. An old friend added it to it when i wasn't looking. not that i don't like it but :P
                                                             What have I signed for?! by woxys
  1. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    • I have no preference, I favorite friends works, people who i think deserve the favorite that don't get a lot of the attention on here they deserve, and sometimes a few things i want to keep up to date on.
  2. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    • I can't choose, there are too many amazing people D:
  3. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    • forestgirl99 KokaeWolf (a friend i got to join the site, we have played games together for a long time xD) and some other people
  4. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

  5. What are your preferred tools to create art?

    • Well my camera, Manga studio for digital, with Sai to help me with outlining and layering. Traditional, i have a entire set up just to work at, with everything i use, or could need. (Even snacks! :D)
  6. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    • well on the go where-ever i am, at home when no one is home, night time: i draw often. :P
  7. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    • All of dem :D but i would say when I purchased deviantARTGalaxy from it's previous founder. :P whenever i have art block, or i just feel lazy, i tend to the group.

Activity Update!

Sat May 24, 2014, 1:24 PM
okay guys, thank you for continuing watching me. I know I have been inactive lately. I wanted to update you on what's going on!

Okay so school is coming to an end! I have finals on the first week of June! When that comes, I will become active again!

I have had to work very hard for school, and my free-time has been spent doodling on all my schoolwork! I know I got really art deprived! Lets hope I can still draw!

I can tell some people have unwatched me because I dropped back down to 99 watchers. To those of you who haven't left me yet, I thank you. To my friends, I will become more active through watching your art and what-not.
I will try to post some starting this weekend, but I won't fully be back until that last day! Thank you for waiting!

When I reach 100 watchers again, around that time, I will do a point and art giveaway!

Wed Aug 7, 2013, 7:15 AM
Hello! :D
Dod you guys miss me?
No?
Okay >.>

Well i was out of town for the longest time and now i am home. I have been addicted to a new game but i am going to try to make more art! ^^ I just need many ideas. To all those free commissions I owe people, i promise to get to them ^^. One was a my little pony thing. I dont draw my little pony. I am going to see if i can draw something else if I can't do that. I haven't even started it because I kind of took an artist's break. The other is meant to be a unicorn. I can't draw horses as it is, and to put a horn on it! eAe But I shall try ^^.
Again, I didn't start that either. That's after the icons.

While I was out of town i didn't really draw at all. Only ONE thing. But I drew that while i was in a church for some addiction thing. eAe
And i didn't spend much time on it.

I have a bit of artists block and just boredom.

So it may be a week or more till i start up on those commissions. I am sorry! ^^' sad

Till then I hope you guys watch my live streams when i do them because one thing that gets me out of art block is when I have someone to talk to. :happybounce:

If I live stream it would be from Twitch twitch.tv/bestestcat That you can follow and get emailed to get notified if you have an account,
Or I will stream from live-stream. Http://livestream.com/Bestestcat

I will be posting past events more and more.
I plan to live-stream today at 10:30 EST
Tomorrow at 10:30 EST
And Friday's time is undecided due to a meeting somewhere at 8:30 am.

I will be posting a journal with the link or links for you to watch.
If you want to watch and chat but lets say you dont have a twitch, you can always comment in the journal because i do check Deviantart as I draw.

~<3~
