First time ever someone else drew my OC ... and so cute!
Livestreaming has commencedI did my very first proper livestream, with the resources available, pushing the limits all the time, heh:
I'd be delighted if you became a Twitch follower. Then things can gain energy and momentum, and I'm SO much better in dialogue than when talking into the void, haha.

Spread the link to this article if you are interested in this crap not happening anymore. It will never stop unless there is force applied.
(I probably shouldn't even have censored my language considering how much this annoys me, but I suspected a word filter preventing me from posting this entry, when it turned out it's just dA making trouble with my up-to-date Firefox. (I can click the preview button, but not the submit button.))
UPDATE: Kind of resolved for the specific case.
IncomingThat's what I'm trying to practice.
I made a donations link on my website.
Also on Twitch, but on my website there's more detailed info about my motivations to do so now.
Should someone want to commission something (for example if they're interested in seeing how I express myself freely or accurately fulfill a clearly defined task when actual substantial appreciation fuels my energy), I am open to that, too, as well as contributing to certain projects. There are more various things I can do than I can list here.

Please spread. People need to know. Too many don't care.
My stylus ... I think it movedThe internet annoyed me so much lately, so I finally found the impulse to draw again. Just some humble line&fill work. It's not done yet. After ~50% completion I ran out of steam and continuing would really have started to feel like a chore. Staring at a blurry analog VGA screen and trying to fill all the gaps feels tedious after a while.
I almost threw the towel before even starting, when I had to resolve several technical issues related to my digitizer first. Some of it known but forgotten issues, but some new, requiring me to eventually just reboot my whole system to fix it because I wasn't in the mood for hunting down the cause. I'm amazed I managed to push through that without major energetic injuries. Maybe I hate those problems too much to give them the satisfaction.
So now, for the time being, I'm back to having no idea how to spend the rest of my day (actually night). Feeling of accomplishment? ... I don't even know.
The new deviantart logoThe new deviantart logo is the epitome of how to NOT be deviant. It conveys the same boring process that any growing business with mainstream aspirations seems to be going through. You just gotta have an extremely simplistic logo. Gradients are poison. Complexity is to be avoided. This is an art site after all. Unite everybody under one easy to grasp icon.
Because the logo conveys what the business is about, and deviantart is about efficiency.
If I sound like I'm getting worked up over this, I'm not. How could I about something that is so boringly all-pervasive and happening again and again? Look at the development of brand logos of huge, expanding businesses and you can see the same trend everywhere. It reflects the dull and void-of-beauty mind of the corporate moneymaker.
And from a first-reaction type of standpoint, I look at the logo and think: Is this the website of a public transportation business?
ANNOUNCEMENT! Please read. Thank you! :-)Greetings my loyal minio... I mean subj... NO I mean peasa... GAAAAAH - DEAD READER!
The need for expansion of my various activities is a big theme in my life, and in an attempt to find more driving purpose for my creative output, I have decided to extend my web presence to some more platforms,
namely Twitter, Tumblr and Wordpress (and Reddit, but since it's a mere content aggregator, this might only be useful to you if you can't follow me on the other sites).
I cannot guarantee when or how much content will appear, but once I have that avenue available, it might help me get some more momentum. I'm pretty sure I'll be quite active especially on Twitter once I have a certain subscriber base.
So if you like what I do on deviantART and YouTube and the web in general, please consider subscribing to my new Tumblr, Twitter and Wordpress (and maybe Reddit), too and sharing it with others when content appears.
The worst that can happen is that nothing happens and you forgot you even sub
Ideas are my special powerOccasionally I hear people talk about what they do when they're in a bad mood, so apparently (in the case of artists) that doesn't necessarily kill their creative drive. They might draw different stuff or their music might sound according to their mood, but they make art.
I always envied that, because - probably very much like the Pinkie Pie guy I am - I need to be in a good mood to have the energy to create, to be productive, to be myself.
But I realize I do have an inherent 'special power' like that: Ideas. Regardless of how angry or depressed or generally unmotivated I am, a single thought or perception in that state can cause me to come up with great ideas.
Hm, maybe I should call it a basic attack instead, since it's available all the time; but I don't want to dive too deeply into gaming metaphors, haha.
And that's why feeling down sucks so much for me: It widens the gap between the amount of ideas I have and how many of them I can put into practice.
Incidentally, ideas are often

LK isn't a pedophile.SOMETHING TO NOTE: at the time of when i started writing this, the journal in question was up and on the website, but as of now it has just recently been taken down. the premise of the journal was basically calling someone out (LK) to be a pedophile. they used very poor evidence that didn't at all seem to be fact checked and the whole entire thing was just pulled out of the fucker's ass that wrote this. this entire situation is a perfect example of mob mentality and what i like to call the "Spoctor affect". if you're unfamiliar with that drama then that'll make no sense to you, but basically it means people just see some screenshots and believe them 1000% without any further personal investigation and a whole shitstorm develops because morons took shit out of context and they were too fucking stupid to actually put some thought into it before just going along with the mob. onto my defenses of LK though...
so yet again, another dumb fuck has tried to call out so

A quick update on my absenceHello DAers!
My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away.
Also, I should have lots of fun skeletals to show off in the coming months (and years) thanks in part to the work I put in over the last 9 months. I look forward to chatting with you all again in a few weeks!
