Distancing and Art

Distancing and Art

So, as you may have noticed, I have slowed down quite a bit on posting. Partially, this is because I have lower motivation lately - it's hard to regain my creative energy. This is also because I have been working on some projects that I do not plan to post here. Also, it's because I got an AO3 account and have been posting my fanfictions there (including a retelling of Kirby's Dream Land which I haven't decided on whether to crosspost it here). But I am still trying to post - I've posted all my artfight attacks so far, and plan to continue to do so. Thank you all for watching, and I'm not dead :D

Delays and Confusion

Delays and Confusion

Since DeviantArt Eclipse has been rolled out, both @SilSinn9801 and I have been having difficulty reaching the group messages for this group. This means submitted artwork, affiliation requests, member requests, etc. may take a while to be confirmed. I have already sent in a ticket to DeviantArt support regarding the issue causing this, but until it is fixed, there may be a significant delay between when you submit artworks and when they show up in the group. If any group submissions time-out, feel free to submit again, and we'll try to confirm them. Please be patient with us as we all adjust to this new format. (Feel free to note me, @bluerosekatie if you have difficulties and I'll try to get back to you.)

Gali and Takanuva's Adventure [INCOMPLETE]

Gali and Takanuva's Adventure [INCOMPLETE]

Day 1: The Stowaways (December 14) My family and I were headed to Hawaii.  We rode in an airporter shuttle to the airport, and as we did so, I checked my backpack to make sure everything was there.   2DS, check.  Camera, check. Headphones, check. Notebook, check. Sketchbook, check. Container, check.  In the front pocket of my backpack, something was moving a bit.  I opened it up to see two Toa. Bionicles... check? Gali and Takanuva were sitting there in my backpack, half-asleep but awake enough to know I'd seen them.  Takanuva didn't care, he just squinted at me and fell back to sleep, but Gali was only barely asleep and she sat up. "What are

Another thing happened... [UPDATED!]

Another thing happened... [UPDATED!]

PLEASE don't harass this user or be rude to them, just beware of their requests. (UPDATE: PeachyPink66 (https://www.deviantart.com/peachypink66) JeremyFanGirl42evil (https://www.deviantart.com/jeremyfangirl42evil), and PeachPink94 (https://www.deviantart.com/peachpink94) have been banned.) So I was sent a note asking for a request.  I asked the sender, PeachyPink66 (https://www.deviantart.com/peachypink66) for some information as to whether the character asked for was their OC, politely, but then was sent approximately 55 notes saying "Go kill yourself", then was asked if I was okay, and when I was going to do the request.  I asked again whether the character was their OC, they said yes, and asked when the request would be finished.  I said I would not do the request due to their spamming notes, so they sent

Yirkie Playlist/Album Contest!! [Closed!]

Guess what? I finally got up the courage to host a contest!! The basic idea is this: Create a playlist and cover art based on my Kirby OC/FC  Yirkie!

This means no explicit lyrics in the songs you choose, and no explicit artworks.Please create a piece of artwork of her as your 'playlist cover'*Playlists will be between 4-10 songs long, inspired by my fan character Yirkie.They may include up to 2 songs written by the entrant.Please try to provide links to the songs, or at the bare minimum, th

Nameless (Tetsuwan Atomu/Astro Boy oneshot)

Nameless (Tetsuwan Atomu/Astro Boy oneshot)

Summary: Set just after Dr. Tenma's abandonment of Atom, this is mostly angst with bits of fluff and mystery. Rating: K+ for mild thematic mentions Possible triggers: suicidal mention, abandonment    The boy scooted away from the narrow walkway of the skyscraper roof.  The howling wind was bitter cold, tugging at the boy’s short black hair, and he shivered, sheltered only by the short wall on the roof.  His clothes had long since succumbed to the elements, leaving him dressed in a pair of black shorts barely covered in the tatters of a shirt and jeans, and a pair of red metal boots.    It’s ironic, he thought.  I’m less

My request journal (since I can no longer put it in my profile due to Eclipse constraints)
I do have a small discord server! Not that many gimmicks or anything, but if you want to join there's room and you might get some secret updates on what I'm working on.
Sorry for my irregular posting schedule lately - I've never had a super-regular one and it's just gotten worse now since the days flow together. I'm still posting though.
I'm sick and tired of these new spambots! At least they're slowly getting deactivated.  But seriously, @team , there should be a way to report deviants from their profile, not just the help desk.
I didn't mean to post that so early... oops! :D But it's finished, anyways.
In light of the new update, I will *not* be leaving DeviantArt.  Eclipse is unpolished and not the best decision in my opinion, but I will be staying on DeviantArt after the update.  However, I will be participating in #thesoundofsilencemovement . Th...
I'm thinking of posting a tutorial of some sort.  Anyone have any suggestions of tutorial ideas?
