I know that some people are becoming frustrated by everyone
changing their names now that the option is available. If you
are one of those people I am sorry for the inconvenience this
may bring.

However, I have wanted to change my name on here for a LONG
time now so I am very glad to finally be able to change to a more
professional/personal DA name! I know there are several people,
like myself, that created their accounts MANY years ago and created
a nickname (which they think is lame now) not thinking about the
future ... I almost cleared this whole account out and created a new
one a few times as I know several people have before. But being
able to change your name and keep all of your watchers, etc... is
so much nicer/easier.

Have a good day and hopefully no one is too upset about the name
change! C:

So, :iconcurry23: talked me into making a tumblr account.

I plan on posting up daily speed paintings that I have decided to
start making for practice. Hopefully I will get better as we
go and maybe even learn a thing or two along the way.

There will also be linearts/sneak peaks of upcoming pieces
that I am working on. I put up the lineart of a piece that I
started last night earlier today so follow the link to check
it out!

I have a terrible habit of letting favs, watches, deviations, etc ... pile up until they are completely unmanageable and overwhelming. Which just leads to them being put off even longer. Tonight I decided that I wanted to clear things out and clean everything up ... start over as it were.  I had over 10,000 messages and now I only have 20! C:

So yeah, this is a mass thank you to everyone that has watched me recently who I was unable to personally thank due to my bad habits. I shall try and do better at it now.

Here's to hoping I can manage my messages better now that they are once again back down to a manageable level :)


P.S. Next One Piece drawing is loosely related to Hannyabal ... hopefully won't be too long before I get around to finishing it up.

= Anyone dress up this year for halloween? ... either way hopefully
everyone was able to enjoy a bit of candy!!

This Halloween I have come back from the dead!! Muahaha

Okay, not really, but I haven't been around for a long time.  

Just haven't had the time to draw like I had before ...
Lots of things happened (nothing really good) but anyway, pretty sure
that I will have some more free time to do some drawing hopefully I
will be updating much more regularly once again!

= Working on something right now, should have it up tonight or tomorrow.

Sorry for not updating in awhile.
Recently, I had been updating here with new art more regularly than I ever had before.

However, it has now been ... a month? since I last posted anything so I thought I would at least post a journal and let people know why I haven't posted anything new as of late.  Basically ...

= I have been working on commissions. =

I just finished a very large Whitebeard vs Akainu commission a few days ago.  The commissioner wanted to keep that piece private so I won't be posting that one online.  I just have one other commission to finish so I will probably be updating with something new in the relatively near future :D

Hey! ... have my computer up and running again.

Thought that I had broken my computer completely, but it turned out that it was only my video card that had died on me.  Bought a new one and things seem to be in working order once again C:


I will upload a new drawing momentarily.

Man, I never write journals.

Anyway, I know that I haven't really posted anything new in awhile ... however that may remain the case for a bit longer here.
My computer seems to have finally bit the dust, so I am not going to be online all that often until I get myself a new one.

I can already tell that not having my computer is going to drive me rather crazy, so it probably won't be TOO terribly long before I do
get myself a new one.  But just a heads up to anyone that I may normally chat w/ online or people who were hoping for something
new to finally be posted up on here.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

I hope that you are able to eat some great food and hang out w/ your families. C:

I got back from Florida on Tuesday.  It was fun at Universal ... Islands of Adventure was much better than Universal Studios though (if you ask me).  Got to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the HP nerd in me really enjoyed that for sure. XD  The new Harry Potter ride they have there is really cool!

Anyway, I also was surprised to discover that I have a DD today when I woke up this morning.  Thank you, :iconsuzaku009: for suggesting it.  It's always a nice surprise. C:

I was able to barely sneak in the completion of that One Piece drawing before leaving ... glad that I was able to as well because it wouldn't have been posted for at least another week otherwise.

Anyway, just a heads up to anyone who may leave a comment, as a question or anything of the sort.  I shall be gone for the next week. I shall be in Florida, going to Universal Studios, etc .... I am not sure how often I will be online (if ever).  So don't be surprised if I take awhile to respond. C:

Thanks for all of the favorites and kind comments on my newest deviation already. C:


My friend was bugging me to make a 3-D image, kind of jokingly and kind of serious.  I went ahead and tried to turn my new Battle on Main Street deviation into a 3-D version for him to see. I figured that I would go ahead and link it here as well so people can check it out if they happen to have a pair of 3-D glasses.


This one is for the classic red/blue glasses.

This one is for the newer purple/green glasses... like the ones that come with Coraline.

Hopefully that will make more people actually read this XD.

So, it's been forever since I last made a journal entry (OVER A YEAR).  Anyway, I (as well as many other artists) am joining in on what :iconmediaviolence: posted in her journal

{COPY/PASTE}

"There's been a lot of negativity going around this site lately, not just directed at me, but directed at friends, fellow artists and bah! It's just too much.

I wanna do something to try to counter all the bad vibes I've been encountering so here's the deal.

I'll draw a free sketch for a three randomly selected people who comment on this journal BUT in return you have to post this in your journal and do the same thing for three other people!

Spread the love!"



== So yeah, leave a comment with a link to who you'd like me to draw and I'll use a random number generator to pick out the 3.


UPDATE:  It doesn't really seem as though anyone else is going to be commenting here so I am closing this now.  There are 9 people who entered, so odds actually aren't too bad.
- 3 random numbers will be generated and sketches drawn soon. (today or tomorrow)

Oh man you guys.  I just played a game from this series for the first time and it's pretty amazing!  

- I really wish awesome games like this and Pop'n Music would be available in the states and Japan would just stop hogging all of the awesome.  But anyway, the 'mascot' for Taiko is probably the cutest thing ever. lol.  All of the different ways that you can dress him up when you unlock things is so amazingly awesome.

Anyway, that's the explanation of the new avatar.  He dances like that in the middle of songs and I always crack up when he does. XD

- First Journal entry since the end of August. lol.-


Anyway, I just signed up over at Smack Jeeves a couple days ago to put up the first part of the comic that I finally started working on.  I have been talking about doing it for a year or so now probably, but anyway ... yeah, started it.

I didn't want to put it up here because the pages would be all out of order and scattered throughout the gallery.

- SO!  Does anyone else have a Smack Jeeves account with a comic they are working on?  Or some similar site ... or just a comic up that they are working on?   
= If you do then please post a link to your account or comic or whatever so I can check it out! : )

Here's a link to mine.

I do have free time now, so hopefully I will make some new stuff. :D

So yeah, this week was the first week back to school after good ole' summer vacation. Overall I think the semester will be pretty good.  There is really only one class that I am taking that I don't like at all, and the rest seem like they will be pretty fun :D

- So yeah, with back to school usually comes a bit less activity on my part for obvious reasons.  But I always say I will post less, but it usually actually stays about the same since I draw things for fun to get away from school work ^^'

- At any rate, I just posted up a sketch I did today and plan on posting a couple more things before the weekend is through ... but I am not making any promises.  

I also assume that a lot of you are heading back to school as well, and if so let me know how things are going for you, and if you are taking any classes that you think are going to be potentially awesome : )



- Oh yeah, and for some reason my pic that I just put up is not showing up on my main page : ( ... LAME.

I was finally able to get pretty much caught up on messages and things the other day so that was good. :)


- But, I have to get my wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow, and that's pretty lame. T^T  I just hope that I will be able to be put to sleep while it's all taking place, then I don't think it will be too bad.  Because I really don't want to be awake while teeth and blood are being pulled out of my mouth. : (

- Also, I am going on vacation this Tuesday, going down to Florida *will probably die from the heat* ... AND we are going to fly there!  I have never been in a plane before so that's kinda scary too. XD
.... so, yeah just letting you know that I am not going to be around for a week or so :D  Sorry for the inactivity as of late, I have been busy with work and other things, but hopefully once I get back from vacation I take the last couple weeks before school starts up to make some arts : )

It's hard to believe how close summer break is to being over, especially when you consider how little I I have accomplished in this time.  I like to say that it's all works fault, and it is partly works fault ... I am often working all day which, obviously doesn't help me get things done.  However, if I really, really wanted to have more done than I do now I could have ... but it seems that breaks suck out a lot of my motivation.

Anyway, I AM working on something that is pretty close to completion right now.  So keep an eye out because there should be, what I hope to be one of my best pieces, posted tonight or tomorrow. : )

Also, Curry is awesome and made me a new ava.
:iconcoreymill::iconcurry23:


+Edit+

Wow, thank you! curry23 for suggesting my newest piece for a DD (and leaving such a nice comment, you are too kind :cuddle:) and aunjuli for featuring it. :)  It was a very nice surprise to start out my day with!  And puts me in a good mood before going to work all day. XD  

Thanks for all of the comments, faves and watches as well.  I will get around to replying to comments when I get back from work tonight.  At least I will get paid a bit extra for working since it's a holiday.  Happy 4th of July!! Go watch some fireworks and thanks again. :D

It sure has been a while.  My last journal was from Christmas!! lol.


- Well, the end of school this semester took up much of my time which is why I have been so inactive.  So yeah, not dead ... however, I have not been drawing much at all since school got out.  And this is just NOT acceptable.  I do have a couple of things that I am working on, just don't have the drive to finish them at the moment.  So here's what I am gonna do.  

= FREE SKETCHES.   For the first five people to ask for something in a reply to this journal.  I will try to make them nice sketches since I am trying to get back into the drawing groove so to speak.  I know it's kinda lame that whoever happens to read this first gets a sketch and people who may be sleeping or doing something else don't but I figure by not advertising it in the title it kinda makes up for it.  That way, only people who actually open it up, not knowing that they could get a free sketch, to read it will have a chance.  So, hopefully a few people will read it. LOL

- Either way, I will try to be more active very soon.  Thanks for all the comments, favs, watches, etc . . .  Here's to drawing more! ^~^

- And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then I hope you have a fantastic Tuesday ^~^  That's about all really I was thinking of doing a holiday picture, but it's getting pretty late now so . . . I may not do one or it will just be a bit later than I would have liked to have it done.

FINALLY DONE WITH THIS SEMESTER!!! FINALS ARE OVER :dance:


:iconcurry23: is doing some free art stuff, and she said that I should to . . . so I am XD   And :icondark-maggot: is doing some free stuff as well.

- So, here's the deal.



*** Comment here with someone or something that you have been hoping that I would draw or that you just would like to see me draw.  It can be from a fandom, and original character . . . or whatever else you may want.  If you do suggest an original character please to be giving me some links for reference.  ***


- I will read through them, and if your suggestion tickles my fancy then I shall make some art.  It may be a sketch, it may be a finished piece, it all depends on what I feel like doing at the time.  But at any rate, if you suggest something that I like . . . you will get a drawing that you wanted from me for free :D

I am not sure when I will start up these drawings, but it will probably be after I finish my piece for the Everyones Secret Santa project.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

Anyway, to my Secret Santa

- I really am having a hard time trying to choose something, the fandoms that I am into seem to change every other day XD

= But I would be happy with any of the Straw Hat Pirates from One Piece, because that series is amazing(or more than one of them if you are wanting to do more than one character, as long as it's not a 'couple/pairing' drawing).
In case you don't, for some reason, know the series here you go . . .
upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…
- That's the Straw Hat Crew - Nico Robin, Usopp, Roronoa Zoro, MonkeyD.  Luffy, Sanji, Tony Tony Chopper, Nami, Franky

You can easily google any of their names to find more references :D

Thanks in advance, whoever you are XD . . . I wonder who I am going to be drawing :3
