Hey, what do you guys do if you're scammed over DA? Over a year ago I purchased something from someone but they're very difficult to contact and apparently no one I know who purchased one too has received it or heard anything from the person. Do we report them to DA? Do we take it up with Paypal? What's the etiquette here?  I just want the thing I purchased or my money back. Esp. being in a difficult time myself financially until I sort out a job, superfluous spending is down to a minimum.

Fffffff.

As for my last handful of commissions I'll be finishing them up as soon as I crawl out of this art funk. I'm like. In one of those "I'm not sure which direction I want to take my style" Periods.  We'll see where it goes.

Character Actor ponderings!

Was just putzing around and was suddenly compelled to make YET ANOTHER pointless journal just to house some thoughts. Do you ever think of IRL Actors who could play your characters? Who would you cast as who? I'm still not entirely committed but my current lineup in my head involves:

Mackenzie Crook (You know him as "That pirate guy") with a die-job as Newt Crux: Are you po-po-positive? by Bilious

Nathan Fillion (CAPTAIN HAMMER'S HERE~) as Brian Crux: Problem Solving by Bilious

Younger Rick Morannis (I AM THE KEY MASTER) as Cecil Crux: This is love by Bilious

Edward Norton as Verdan Crux: Verdan doctor study by Bilious

Adrian Brody as Uesse the Nameless

and my friend Ross as Jeremy. Crux: Demon Jeremy Study by Bilious

Anyone have suggestions for Billy or Peter or any of my other dudes? I thought Jackblack for Billy because he is one of Bill's inspirations but guy's far too chunky and not nearly whateveritisBillyis enough.

Saw a mess of my friends answer this so I figured I would too. X)

Why did you join this site?
Because I needed a place to dump art and it seemed like a good place to do so.

What does your username have to do with you? Is it a combination of your favorite things, or a character of yours?
Bilious, besides being an awesome word meaning "Sickly, Of Bile, Green, etc ", it's also the name of an obscure character in a Terry Pratchett book. Cause I love Terry Pratchett. He and Paul Kidby are huge influences in my artistic life.

What is your current icon of?
IT'S ME AS RORSCHACH. LOL WHAT A TOOL. But it matches some of my pals, so that makes it awesome cause we're all nerds together. :icontoshiful::iconcoelasquid: :iconmanic-pixie::iconthecrowchan: but the rest of them changed cause their attention span ran out.

How many watchers do you have and how many people are you currently watching?
Bilious watches 947 people, while 1,728 people watch Bilious.

Do you have more than one account?
UH. This is the only one I post art at, really. But I've made a few plz in my time, and I own DeviantDead with Toshi's help.

Name 3 of your favorite artists on DA.
FFFFF UH. UM. UMMM. FUCK. :iconthurop::iconoly-rrr: and :iconsally-avernier: AMONG MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY MORE. there's just three random ones. u_u

What deviant do you admire because of their personality?
:icontoshiful: who doesn't? you're my homeslice, baby. Awkward too-long-bro-handshakes forever let's go fight crime in your gay flying ship. Toshi's filled with love and compassion for everyone which in many cases is a very admirable trait. Also I love :iconcoelasquid: and :iconheysawbones:'s sometimes brutal honesty.

How many people on here do you actually know in reality? Post their avatars.
UMM. I've met :icontoshiful: and :iconblindknight: IRL before and hung out a bit... and went to school with :iconendling: and my IRL BFF has a DA account but she'd probably smack me for linking it so I won't. X)

Do you comment, fave, or both?
DEPENDS ON WHAT IT WARRANTS. Fanart I generally just fave unless it really made me lol because how many times can a person hear "Yay batman!!" ?

What do you typically post on deviantart?
Random crap. Bit of everything I guess. Mostly bad cartoons.

Do you participate in clubs or contests here on DA?
I DO. I post at :icongunga-diner: and a few other fan clubs, and have been a part of :iconthecolosseum: and :iconrogue-skies:

What is your most popular deviation?
UH. My most favorited: Coraline: Smile by Bilious My most commented on: Lord of the muffin by Bilious My most viewed: Harry Potter: Hot Red Head by Bilious  YOU BE THE JUDGE IT'S ALL BECAUSE FANART= POPULARITY. I just draw this shit sometimes for lulz, man. And badly too.

What's your favorite submission in your favorites gallery?
Sleepy Head by ChrissieCool I fave too much shit, man. You go look through it, it's all classy.

What are the things you wish you could draw better?
Everything. >:| Mostly I need to work on refreshing my anatomy and delving into more environments though.

Are you a subscriber?
Yup. Thanks, Falin! <33333

How many hours a day do you spend on DA?
Umm idk depends on the day and what's going on. Sometimes I'll check it here and there during the day, sometimes i'll chill in a chatroom for a bit. I'm a big lurker mostly.

Are you a fast, slow, or medium typer?
Fairly fast. Fast enough to hit submit before catching my typos often.

What is the most annoying thing people ask you?
Umm. I don't know about ask, but I've had many people tell me they're either "Just like" or "In love with" one or more of my characters. Generally they're designed to be somewhat repulsive individuals if not phsyically than personality-wise so it always baffles me.

What is the most annoying comment you get?
See Above.

What inspires you?
THE WORLD AROUND ME. IT'S AMAZING, THE THINGS IN THIS WORLD. Also the History Channel.

Do you use any traditional media?
Yesssss I suck at drawing straight on the computer, if you guys couldn't catch it- I prefer to do my lineart traditionally and color digitally, but I also love water colors and markers and pencil and pens and paint and things that generally get you dirty.

Do you associate people online with their icons?
Sometimes. It often throws me for a while when people change them.

Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?
I think at least once. I hardly pay attention to them.

Everyone has considered leaving DA once or twice. Have you? Why?
Nah. If an internet community bugs me I usually just step away and get some air without notice and come back once I have interest again. Bitching and leaving is for people who want to make a big scene and get attention, not solve whatever problem is bugging them. u_u

And there you have it I guess! That killed five minutes lol.

Rogue Skies: The End

Hey alls. Yeah, if you saw the announcement, Rogue-Skies is officially over. HUGE CONGRATS TO Oly-RRR !!!! I really had hoped to give you a run for your money this round, man, but real life got in the way, unfortunately. I'm really depressed over the way things unfurled, after dedicating a year of my spare time souly on this project, it's like a huge empty part of me. I suppose what happened is best described by the note I sent to the RS account as my official resignation, so I'll post it up here before I blather and say something stupid in my disappointment with myself.

Hey guys, I wish I had happier news but I don't think there's any way I'll be able to finish on time. As you all probably know the last nine months of my life have been consumed with the arduous task of moving over 12,000lbs of machine shop equipment and my father and our whole lives from New Jersey to California, the past three months then dedicated towards making our new house livable and getting my new life here in LA settled. It was a struggle enough to finish the last round, most of which was done in secret- I should have bowed out last round or the round before, but this was a personal challenge and I really had hoped to see it to the end. I still plan on finishing my Rogue Skies comic at my own pace as time and inspiration allows, but now that I'm here I'm in the process of getting myself ready for the professional game.

I am so proud to have had the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful tournament- it's been a fantastic experience all the way through, both supportive and exciting and I think I've grown as an artist as a result of my participation, and will carry the experience with me as something I'll always reflect on fondly.

I still have great plans for the conclusion to my side of the story, and I think I could do it more justice if I take my time with it. I'm so sorry to have to bow out like this, I really thought I could try to orchestrate it into my schedule but I've barely had time or energy to doodle, let alone work on whole comic pages.

My portfolio is coming together although not necessarily up to the standards I had wanted, but that was a sacrifice I chose to make. My advisor from Dreamworks had suggested I work with plain line art more and do more sequential and I think through my application of his and other mentor's lessons into this project my drawing skills have polished up a hair. Still far to go but hopefully I'll be able to find work in a studio here soon.

Thank you again for your patience with me, and I'm so sorry to not have been able to finish on time, even with all of the extensions you gave us. Sometimes life just runs away from you.


So yes, Real Life is calling and if I don't return it's calls I'm going to end up a futureless hobo. I'm in the middle of wrestling the bull by the horns, if you guys couldn't tell by my general absence and lack of personal work beyond commissions as of late.  Hopefully once my resume is polished up and circulating amongst the trashbins in LA I'll have time to make art for art's sake again.

Projects to be picked up:

The rest of my RS comic (The plot was too epic not to finish)
Resurrect Bookbinders
Crux comics

Argarg I need to get my act together, fight the depression, and have faith that the things I hate about my work will eventually be worked out and forgive my own shortcomings.  So yeah, before you chew me out for forsaking my place here, let it be known that this contest has meant a lot to me, and it really broke my heart for it to have to end this way. But I couldn't have asked for a more fabulous last opponent and friend. So if you haven't already, GO READ OLY'S COMIC. AND OLY. YOU BETTER MAKE US SOME FANTASTIC TRIVIALLY TRUE COMICS TO READ ASAP.

Bili out.

I stole this from heysawbones who stole it from deerlordhunter.  Taking a break from commissions and stuff to do this totally pointless thing that doesn't tell you much! Horray! :D Now back to work with me.

◆Your name?
Tina/Bili

◆If possible, your age?
24

◆When did you start drawing?
As soon as I could hold a crayon.

◆Which hand do you use for drawing?
Right.

◆Which is easier to draw - male or female?
Male for some reason.

◆Which is easier to draw - long hair or short hair?
Short hair, I suppose, because there's less of it to keep track of.

◆Is it easier to draw the head facing towards the right or the left?
I try to switch it up. I suppose I end up defaulting to the right often though.

◆Is it easier to draw the side view of the face or the front view?
I find the front view easier- with the side view you gotta make sure your anatomy of the jaw and bridge of the nose and brow and everything is alright and it's harder to fake it than front on.

◆What do you have problems in drawing?
HANDS But I've been working on being less lazy about it. Also coming up with dynamic poses that aren't just vogue-shots. Gotta work on whole scenes, man. Also backgrounds- forshortening has been a foe of mine for some time and it's generally been an uphill battle getting over this short coming.

◆What do you like to draw?
Goofy looking guys doing silly things.

◆Are you a traditional artist or a digital artist?
I try to do a bit of both- almost all of my lineart is done traditionally if I can help it and I dapple in various real media but photoshop is my general default for coloring in my traditional line work.

◆Where do you start drawing from?
I usually start with a gesture drawing, maping out where everything goes and then refine the shape of the face and muscles/ribcage/basic shapes and then refine from the top down to the bottom from there.

◆What is your drawing habit that you are aware of?
I'm not sure. I do have a habit of making my characters look like people I know subconsciously. Sometimes I embrace that and sometimes I try to splice in other people/celebrities to try to hide it if I find it embarrassing.

◆Any tips for coloring/shading?
Lately I've found if you start with all shadows solidly put in and then erase away where the light hits it's a lot easier to wrap my head around where light WOULD hit and what would cast what kind of shadow etc. easier than just trying to put the shadows down where they'd go in theory. Start dark work light!

◆How long does it take to finish a piece of art?
Depends on the piece- could be anywhere from one hour to ten hours give or take.

◆What music do you listen to while you draw?
Usually I listen to the TV. But otherwise just whatever music I'm digging or have handy at the time.

◆How long does it take you to come up with an idea?
Sometimes it's instantaneous like OH MAN THAT OWULD BE GREAT but sometimes I struggle with it and redo a picture several times before finding something I find passable.

◆Your favorite drawing utensils?
Micron 01, Micron 05, Micron 08, size 0 brush with winsor newton black india ink, .08mm Mechanical Pencil, non-photo blue col-erase prisma pencils, non-photo blue regular prisma pencil. my tablet. That's my usual arsenal.

◆Your favorite color/the color that you use a lot?
I generally use purple for shading I suppose. X)

◆Your favorite style(s)?
CARTOONS? idk I'd love to be able to paint like Paul Kidby or cartoon like shingworks but I've got so many heroes I'm not quite sure what direction to take at present.

◆What kind of artist are you aiming for?
One that's better than I am today!

Been super busy as of late, figured i'd make a quick journal to remind people I'm alive. X) Comic Con went great! Although jesus christ Gas Prices arg! Had loads of fun, suffice to say. If I go again next year even if it's only for a day, I'm going to aim for Saturday.

In other news, after two months of living here I finally managed to start unpacking my things in my room! My drawing table is now officially FUNCTIONAL! Which means I don't have to draw out in the open with my dad hovering around me disapproving of whatever it is I'm working on.  Going to work on finishing up Rogue Skies and my commission queue as soon as I crawl my way out of this art rut. I'm in one of those "Oh God I know what's wrong with my work, but it takes so much WORK to fix it" ruts that I think only more observational and life drawing can fix. Unfortunately signing up for those drawing classes will have to wait until I've got my finances under more control. (Was super proud of my comic-con-on-a-budget adventure, I even came home with money in my pocket still to put towards more important things than action figures and nerdy tshirts lol) But in the meantime gonna rock the reference books and posemaniacs. X) Also just unearthed my art s. buck dolls. :D Oh man did I miss my books, they've all been packed up for now probably five to six months. No wonder I'm so rusty!

Also I saw Watchmen Director's Cut at the Grauman's Chinese Theater and that was freaking amazing even if my friend only went with me to humor me. I thought it was amazing. X) Also we went to the San Diego Zoo, which according to locals I've talked to is a "Two to three day zoo" - We trecked teh whole thing in one day lol. Did a bnch of animal sketches that were super quick but still fun. Will have to do more.

At any rate, still here, still trying to sort out the problems with the house. Still fighting the good fight against dirty carpets and cat vomit. Still attempting to hammer the suck out of my hands when I put them to paper. Getting there. Getting there.  At this point I hope to draw SOMETHING, ANYTHING just to get the ball rolling again.

Not sure what else to babble about but HEY HERE I AM I AINT DEAD.

Regarding DeviantDead It takes time to make the wine, and our artist has a lot of higher priorities like putting food on her table and so on, so things will start when they start. Best to just let it happen when it happens, man. X)  Just reminding you all that it still is in the works.

Also seriously go check out :iconyeahswingit:

Thanks so much everyone who has commissioned me! I've got quite the queue built, so I think I'm going to need to close commissions while I catch up! I think i'll have enough to pay off those bills for this month, as well as maybe a few bucks left over for some fun times! I'm going to be very tight pocketed for Comic Con though because I still have next month's bills to consider, but I'll probably end up opening commissions again once I finish up the current queue.

If you have not yet sent payment, please do so I can get started at my leisure! I may not do these in order of being received, they all need to get done and if I'm finding myself having artfarts over one I may move along to the next just to try to pick away at them, but I'll do my best to get them done in a timely fashion, picking away at the final chapter of Rogue Skies in between.

SPEAKING OF OCTS.

URGENT Needing commissions!

Edit: Srsly folks, I've got a stack of bills screaming at me and I'd like to have at least fifty bucks in my pocket for Comic Con after paying all this off (Food and bills comes first but my BFF from highschool is flying in for our yearly vacation tradition and it'd be nice to actually be able to pay off my credit card and go enjoy myself. I've been up to my eyeballs in stress, I need a couple days to kick back, man.) Unfortunately that costs gas and food expenses.  That's if I can raise enough to pay off my student loan payments for the month and credit card expenses. I've got no income at the moment besides what I can manage to raise through commission work, and I know everyone's a bit tight these days but here's hoping I can scrape by until I'm able to find more consistent work. Thanks guys, it's greatly appreciated. Times are hard and the stress level at home is somewhat intolerable.

If you would like something that I do not have listed below, please PM me and we can work something out. I'm desperate, man!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The move was really hard on our pockets, and it's come time to pimp myself out once again. I have three outstanding commissions left to finish up in the next couple days, but I'm really hurting for cash right now in ugly ways. Please help a Bili out!

To refresh your memory, here's my price sheet from my Commissions Journal:

Uggg. We made it. Sitting in my new house, exhausted. No furniture, slept on a mattress on the floor. It's fabulous because it's ours. The place is so noisy without anything to dampen the sounds, though, so sleep was rough. Cats and rats are quite happy to be out of the car now. I suppose I'll write up a better report of the trip sometime but I don't have the oomph in me at the moment. All I can say is that Kansas was really really really boring. I'm so sorry if you live in Kansas. I'm quite happy to be back in more city-like surroundings.  Horray! Now to uh. Fix up the place, unpack, and find a job. Fun stuff.

Also my DA subscription ran out. :C No money for a new one so I get to be all unfancy now.
edit: OMGAWWWW THANK YOU, FALIN YOU ARE MY HERO ;A; <333 BE GONE YOU STUPID ADS!!!

Once things settle gonna' get cracking on my Rogue-Skies entry, but we won't have my scanner nor my tablet for another week and a half. DX Ugg. I can make it. I hope.

Man, I need a job so I can just buy that new Intuos. It's super sexy.

On the Road Again~

Bilious's Journal
May 22, 2009

Cat pissed on himself in the back of the car. They know something is amiss- they knew once we purged the house of all our worldly possessions, but there was no denying it when they were manhandled into the car and the little orange cat made a mess of himself in his terror.

And all the cats and all the rats filling the backseat will howl out "ARE WE THERE YET?" and I'll whisper "No."




Okay, I told terriblenerd I'd do the car trip reports Rorschach style but I don't know if I have the mental capacity about me to do so at least until I get more sleep.  Day one is complete, and I'm about to embark on day two of driving across the country to our new home officially. I can't believe we're out out. I mean. All our stuff, all that prep work for three months, all the hard parts- finally done. Well, I suppose this drive could be considered part of hte hard part, but honestly I'd say carrying 12,000 lbs of equipment, boxes, paintings, machines, hats, clothes, small strange objects we can't quite remember what they do but damn if it's getting left behind, etc. up and down three flights of stairs was pretty damn hard and aggravating.

Are we there yet?

No.

Tonight we land in Michigan to visit some family and rest for a few days.  After months and months of late nights and early mornings and grueling back breaking labor I'm relieved to have very little and lots of sitting on the agenda.

P.S. The Watchmen Soundtrack is fantastic.

No idea what else to say, I'm exhausted and have hours and hours and hours and days and days and days of driving ahead of me. What an adventure! Photos will come eventually but it's mostly us crammed in the car being bored and tired and rockin' the cruse control.

To his credit, once he got used to things and was let out of his carrier, Artie was quite the gentlemanly car-cat. Cokey, (the older big black alfa male) was quite pissed off the entire way, but Artie just gave a little "Moooowooow?" when he wanted some reassurance and quieted down once you gave him a pet. (After we cleaned him off of course.)

SINCE THE CAT CRISIS IS THWARTED IT'S TIME FOR A NEW JOURNAL ENTRY.

FFFFFFFFFF SO. FINAL RESULTS FOR Rogue-Skies WAS POSTED.








The Final Round will be between me and Oly-RRR HOLY CRAP!! Not only is she one of my buddies, she's an incredible storyteller and artist, and I must say I'm quaking in my boots! But I've got some plans and this turn of events works out very well. Just hope I'll have the time to get it all done with the move going on. I'm hoping with it just being the two of us they'll be lenient enough for both of us to come up with some quality comics for you guys to enjoy. X)  The judges seemed to find the inkwash style I was forced to use this round due to time-crunch as a bit muddy, so I'll be experimenting a bit more next round. Still don't think I'll have time to return to cross hatching, so I'll have to play it by ear.  Now it's a matter of what sort of ending do I want to leave these guys off with- unfortunately a happy ending doesn't seem very likely. ): Shit happens when your perception of reality is screwed up. ):

I'd like to thank Ekuneshiel for a wonderful battle! Mikka and Arkady were a lot of fun to play with! I hope you enjoyed what I did with/to them XD I advise everyone to go check out his side of our match right now! RS Round 4, Pages 1-5 by Ekuneshiel I quite enjoyed how he portrayed my crazy guy, he made a very fun villain for Mikka to face off against! X)

Still so tempted to do a sexy Raven pinup. It'll happen eventually. ):<  Skinny, crazy, grease-balls with overbites can be sexy, I swear. Okay, maybe not. But all the same, I love me some ironic jokes.

So on top of going insane with the deadline for our move coming up ever closer and closer and me being at my wits end trying to keep up with all we have to do to make this happen, my cat has vanished.  We haven't seen him in over twenty four hours now, and have searched the house from attic to crawl-space underneath and everywhere in between. The house is in boxes, so there's few places for him to hide, and we've checked every room, and even all the walls in case he somehow managed to get trapped there but nothing.  We think he might have snuck out on the deck when Dad was giving the new cleaning lady for when we rent the place out a tour.  He might have been freaked out from all the boxes, but yesterday morning he was especially snuggly and affectionate. He slept with me all night the night before and now he's just MIA. He's a fatso and never misses a meal, and so when we got home from errands and I went to feed everyone and he never showed up, I was immediately worried- apparently rightly so because he's still MIA and it's been over a day since we last saw him now.

Tomorrow I'm posting up fliers.

Fffffffuck.  I just hope he shows up again before we skip town.  Suffice to say, I'm feeling a really bad case of heart ache.

After what happened with Bigby, our kitten who had a cardio miopathy last year, I'm terrified.

Edit 4/7/09: Thanks so much for all your support guys ): I'm really hoping he'll find his way home soon. I've put up fliers around our neighborhood and called the Vet to let them know in case someone brings him in thinking he was a stray. Hopefully someone will have seen him.

Edit #2: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF SO LIKE. We're working in the studio moving guitar boxes and so on (hundreds upon hundreds of pounds of them) and we finished rearranging and Dad, our Neighbor who was helping out and I were taking a breather winding down after finishing today's work and suddenly, that little bastard comes scooting out from under the crawl space we THOUGHT we had thoroughly searched and saw us and almost immediately bolted back under!!! I crept up on him and managed to snag him by the tail and DRAG that little fucker out and grabbed him and brought him upstairs immediately where I hugged and kissed him for a good ten minutes straight. (After making sure he was fed and watered and given treats)   Recently, the door to the design room mysteriously had been left open somehow, despite the fact all of us remember closing it- it's one of those doorknobs with the lever-type handle, not a knob, and I think Artie figured out how to open it, and someone must have left the next door open (the one to the studio/machine shop) and he must have gotten locked in and then hid! You'd think he would have come out when we were calling for him, but like I said, he's a candy-ass and probably thought he would get in trouble or something.

GOOD NEWS IS: CAT FOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I get to go all around the neighborhood and collect all the fliers I put up XD hahahhahaha. Seriously though. I did not need that stress right now. BRB GOING TO GO PLAY STRING WITH JUNIOR.

:icondeviantdead: has gone through a billion upgrades! If you haven't checked it out yet, check it out now! BUY OUR BUTTONS. Auditions are still not open yet but we're getting ever closer!

Also on the subject of monetary assistance, :iconmanic-pixie: Is offering commissions to help our pal TheCrowchan get her laptop fixed! Go! Check out her sexy sexy arts and give her money for them so we can have our Crow back!

Ugg that is all for now. Mouth in pain and filled with spit and blood and Oreo flavored pudding.

I better as hell better be better enough to see Watchmen this weekend. Or it won't be MY blood I'm spittin' out. :iconbilisabouttocryplz: <-- my "I'm gonna' fuck you up with my fists" face.

The Dead Heads by auryn

Also, Christoph-the-Great wrote a fabulous DD inspired poem! DD: The Day of OutbreakDay of outbreak
Open your eyes to the sounds of sirens and screams,
I can promise this isn’t another creepy zombie dream.
Ask yourself if you’re truly awake, go on, pinch yourself,
Sooner  gripping the reality will be better for the health.
Turn on the television, the news is looping an emergency broadcast,
An evacuation has been ordered, you better run, and you better run fast.
Unknowing you step into the outside world, now a miserable little hell,
To your right is what’s left of the neighbor’s boy, the one you knew so well?
Something seems to click as your eyes widen, come to grips with things, have you?
Good thing you’ve played so many of those zombie games, now you know what to do.
You smash the window of a nearby crashed police car, and grab the first weapon you can reach,
You turn to the sounds of screeches and snarls, good job attracting the recently deceased.
Get ready, take aim, and be careful not to miss more than a single shot,

WATCHMEN OMG and other news

Figured it was time for an update! Found the pennies to scrape together to subscribe for another couple months- HORRAY!!! I was prepaired to give that up for our expenses problem but I find out that it's a small expense for a service I use all the time so it was cool. ^_^  SO YAY.

In other news, packing is going as packing is going, my RS entry is scripted and my first draft of thumbs is done and plan on crunching out a page or two and the final thumbnails this weekend if I can squeeze it in. >_< Gettin' my wisdom teeth out on monday so that'll be greeeeeat </sarcasm> but hopefully I can get some more drawing done while doped up on pain meds. XD

also WATCHMEN omg fffffff SO CLOSE ARG NEXT WEEK, MAN, NEXT WEEK. ARG ARG ARG I'm so excited seriously holy crap. I still need to mail Toshi her copy of Watchmen back and pick up my own at some point XD lololol. Aw man, Rorschach ilu. This movie had better be amazing or there will be a revolt.
edit: :iconrorschachplz::iconozymandiasplz::iconniteowlplz::iconlaurieplz::icondrmanhattanplz::iconcomedianplz:

Finally, I've been seeing a lot of OCT related dramaz popping up in my inbox about this and that and I just have to say at this point I'm so glad I'm not a part of it. XD Rogue-Skies has been so wonderful this whole time. It's small and doesn't have a huge audience and so I suppose as a result there's less of a catalyst for conflict I suppose. X) I'm hoping DeviantDead will go half as smoothly as Rogue-Skies has gone! also HOLY CRAP SEMI FINALS FFFFF for those not following along, round four is here and I'm up against the talented Ekuneshiel and his pink-haired-elven-pirate-queen Mikka Ekuneshiel.deviantart.com/art/… - this round is most definitely going to be exciting on all sides, I'm sure!

:icondeviantdead: is still under construction, but we're making progress! I suppose my hassling and kvetching finally paid off, Toshi's made some real progress on her end of things so it's just a matter of time at this point! :D I added a progress bar on the main DD page so you guys can keep track of the count down to party time. While we wait in suspense, please check out some of these hot tentative character designs people have turned in so far! And there's loads more in DD's favorites! deviantdead.deviantart.com/fav…

Coraline, The Move, Ending Sub, and DD

Ffffffffff move is going hellish but it's going. My room is 90% in boxes now, and I get to basically camp out for the next month or so. Uggg I want to fast-forward and be in California already. It's kind of a sad time for me and my friends. Finally, after all these years post-highschool we're finally officially starting to go our separate ways. Sara's moving to Florida, I'm moving to California... we'll all have our meet-ups during holidays and suchlike but still it's not going to be the same. I'm going to miss the gang so much. ):

That said, I'm in a very strange state of mind today after seeing Coraline yesterday.  It was... very interesting. I have not read the book and so I can't compare it but I do want to read it. Unfortunately I hear my favorite character Wybie is only in the movie so Coraline isn't talking to herself all the time- this makes me sad. I was hoping to learn more about him and his grandmother. Alas!   The whole experience left me.... I'm not sure how to describe it. It reminded me of feelings I used to have while being depressed about my home-life when I was a child, angsting over the divorce that went on ridiculously long and always going off on adventures on my own armed with nothing but my imagination and eleven acres of farmland and woods to explore.  That feeling of escapement from those things that depressed you/upset you when you were young, and yet even in your fantasies you couldn't completely resolve them etc. IDK I'm rambling.

Long story short, I liked it. A lot. Wanna get the sound track.  Left me with a sentimental sense of depression. And an urge to locate a Wybie action figure.

Hoping when Watchmen comes out it'll undo this sad sort of fog and replace it with pumped up excitement and enthusiasm for life. We'll see.

Also my subscription is ending soon and I do not have the money to renew it. This also makes me sad.  I like DA without ads. D:<

:icondeviantdead: Is still in preproduction hell. Been hassling Toshi to get her end of things done but it's been a bit like pulling teeth. May end up doing the whole tutorial myself- at least she wrote a very fabulous script for it that seems very straight forward and comprehensive. But I'd rather her take up half the artwork jobs too since I've been doing people management etc. XD  Ah well. Seems some people are happy with delays because it gives them time to get their own to-do lists under more control so they can join. ^_^ I'm just totally excited to see things coming along and all the tentative ideas people have already posted up! This looks like it's going to be a super fun project. Here's some of my favorites so far! (Let's use these thumbnail features while I still got a sub to feature with! XD )
