Have hit 4000 pageviews! Woohoo ~Another milestone crossed ~
Though I am not exactly free to draw more art for February. I only have that one sketch... Shall try to squeeze in some time during the last 10 days or so but it's not looking too good at the moment, time-wise. So many things to do...
I have a rough sketch made when I was bored in class. It's done on foolscap paper though (line paper for the rest of the world?) so the drawing is kinda ruined. Shall upload under scraps when I find the time to scan it ~
2018 Art GoalsOkay, so I haven't taken stock of my art progress since Jan 2016 (oops), so I'm going to do one for this year. I'm the kind of person who wishes that they would magically be good at something but often can't set aside enough time to practice and ensure that it comes through. So this is another attempt for me to measure my progress and set some art goals for the new year.
Things I've achieved in 2017:
Monthly Art Challenge - 8/12 months successful. Problematic months: Jan (partially), Feb, Apr, Sep, Oct. The same problem again; in some months (during holidays), I churn out many art pieces, while in other months, there's nothing, not even sketches.
Art Contests - Kaiyakii's 7 Day Art Challenge and CrimsonContest's Draw their OC Contest
Events - CrimsonContest's Secret Santa
Requests - Chibi (2), Regular (6) [that's a lot for me! Considering the amount of original art I've made...]
Goals for 2018:
Finish that online art course I've enrolled in - currently have only submitted my first assi
Gonna take part in a Secret Santa event~!EDIT: Done with my entry, but I was late. Seems like I estimated myself too highly to be able to finish it in 1-2 days haha. Oh well.
Finally going to give it a try after seeing it on dA for 2 years... This will be the event I'll be taking part in!
I don't have many expectations for it, except to force myself to draw more + with better quality. Also to make sure I draw an artwork for December so my monthly art compilation doesn't look too empty...

[Closed] 2 Chibi Request slotsOpening 2 Chibi request slots ~
Not on a first come, first serve basis, I'll choose the characters that I'll want to draw. I'll try not to pick users who have been picked for past requests ~ I will choose one male and one female character to draw.
This request is for me to practice my chibi style. It will be coloured. Most current chibi artwork here:
Drawing speed: One request/week since I'm currently busy with other matters. But I still want to open requests now ~
May be stopping requests in the near future when I feel that my skills are good enough to start charging a little.
What I won't draw:
- Furries, animals etc
- ecchi, hentai, rated stuff
- too complicated designs will be simplified

[Closed] Opening 2 request slots ~UPDATE: Selected the entries that I'll be drawing. Thanks for suggesting! Some of them are hard for me to draw at the moment, so they weren't picked. I may do a small doodle of them though! Hoping to do a colouring test wth these two requests.
Heyhey, I've nothing to do so I've decided to open requests (again)!! just kidding, I have lots of important things to do (T.T) but I also want to draw more art, so...
WILL BE COLOURED with simple bg, Estimated time taken for each request: 5 days.
Some of my (nicer) recent work:
What I can draw:
1. anime/manga style
2. boys/girls (girls much better though)
3. random props
What I won't draw
1. ecchi, hentai
2. too young/old people (I need more work on these...)
3. too complicated designs (I will most likely get confused before being able to draw it lol)
Feel free to attach your designs and I'll reply if I am comfortable wit
Participated in an art challenge ~Just completed a week's worth of artworks! A feat that has never happened before, due to me being lazy or drained. One day draw so much, another day don't draw at all... Participated in Kaiyakii's art challenge on a whim...
But I've managed to do it!! Tada ~ *w*
Although most are sketches/lineart only...
Here's the rest of my summer to-do list. Hope I actually get to doing them before my other commitments catch up with me...
Draw OC Alethia Character Sheet
Finish colouring Sakura fanart
More fanarts ~
Draw more chibis
*Practise drawing guys (didn't get to drawing them much because they looked weird/off someway and I needed to be efficient for the challenge)

Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:
~ TIPS ~
Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar
Drugs And Mental Disorders (Small Rant)The thing I REALLY hate about people these days is how they still see drugs and mental disorders as some joke or punchline.
It's so fucking disrespectful to people who had parents who did drugs or had some sort of mental disorder and they don't even realize how goddamn serious these things are.
My dad used to drink alcohol and he chucked me across my living room floor when I was only around 8-9 years old.
My mom still smokes cigarettes. My dad has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Attention Defict Hyperactivity Disorder.
My mom has Depression and Anxiety and when she doesn't take her anti-depressants, she says that she would be sad all the fucking time.
I got my ADHD and OCD genetics from my dad and it really sucks. Why are people still like this, I don't fucking understand.
It fills my entire body with rage and hate it just brings me back to when my dad would yell at me and my 2 older sisters and even slap us across the face just to tell us how much of a bratty attitude we would have.
16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they
Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to

Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
