My Progress/WIP ScreensHi again,
I believe that I have found some time to draw again. This makes me so happy! Thanks also to all of you who inspired me not to give up on my art.
For the last two pieces that I've worked on, I also tried to upload work in progress screens. I did this because some of you have asked me questions about how I draw and what I use. I hope these are helpful and answer some questions. Here are the most recent two that I have uploaded already:
I plan to do this also for other works in the future, if you, my watchers, think that it is a good idea and would like to see them. If not, then I won't.
I am still working on a gift picture of D.N.Angel's Dark Mousy and a Yusei+Aki piece.
Thanks for reading. Until next time~
Art Thief!!! Please help!Hi. I found one of my pictures in this forum/website thing. Usually I don't mind if the person provides a link back to me, but this person modified it and cut off the watermark!!! How horrible. I wanted to tell them to remove it, but I don't speak their language. If anyone can, please help me out. Here is a link to the post: http://forosdz.info/galerias-dz-anime-y-videojuegos-189/vampire-knight-3075/ It is post number 11. Again, please help me out here. It is not right for them to modify my picture and use it. I have rights as an artist and I feel like this person is violating them.
Thanks to all for your help in advance.
Current ProgressHi again,
Ok. I think that I have finally managed to figure out some time for my art, therefore I will try my best to draw more before I get swamped with schoolwork again. In any case, I wanted to thank all of those who voted on my latest poll. As of now, there's a tie between Yusei and Aki so I will draw them together. I hope that it is better that way. I already have the picture planned out and just need to sketch and clean it up.
In the meantime, I am working on a contest entry for the contest over at Zeki-Love. I sketched it a few hours ago and then drew out the line work. Just in case some of you are interested on the preview, here it is. The quality is a bit bad 'cause it's from my phone.
In addition, I sketched out a DNAngel picture that I am working on as a request:
That is all of the progress for now. Please share your ideas with me about what you think of the new deviations so far if you want to. It would be really encouraging and helpful.
Until next time,
Regarding my next picture...Thanks for voting on my last poll, everyone. Based on the votes, I will be drawing a Yugioh 5D's picture next. Please vote on the character(s) this time around so that I can decide who to draw.
If you voted for an anime/manga that did not get the most votes, don't be discouraged. I am thinking of making another poll after I am done with this picture to see what to draw next.
I think that it works best if I continue drawing this way. Through the polls I know what you guys would like to see from me, and it urges me to draw more. Would this method be okay, or should I just continue and draw whatever I feel like?
I promise to try and find more time to draw. In the meantime, I am awaiting your voting on who to draw next.

Hello! Missed me? haha...probably notHi, hi!!!
I hope everybody has been doing well. I think that some of you might be wondering what happened to me, so I decided to finally update my journal and explain.
Well, for starters, I am taking on a whole load of difficult classes in order to graduate as soon as I can, so really, there has been no time to draw. In fact, there hasn't been much time to do anything related to my anime fandoms, although I remain strict about being caught up with the weekly Zexal episodes and the monthly VK and Kuro chapters. Even with these though, it feels like sometimes days go by before I can sit down to watch/read. This was the first year that I missed drawing a picture for Yugi's birthday. *sob* Anyway, I am now complaining, so I'll stop.
The truth is that I don't have much time to draw, and I don't think that things will change any time soon. There are so many pictures that I have started and left off because when I come back to work on them weeks later, I have lost interest. I log in to DA to
deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing.
I feel much the same way about deviantART.
I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo
Warning/Call out Journal - TheChaosRuler (UPDATE5)WARNING: LOTS of swearing and opinions down below. Read at your own risk.
This has gone on for long enough, and I am sick and tired of all of it.

Any updates and added information will be provided near the bottom of this journal.
DO NOT ATTACK OR APPROACH HIM. NOT ONLY IS HE NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR EFFORT, BUT IT COULD GET YOU BANNED. MY ADVICE IS JUST AVOID HIM, BLOCK IF NECCESSARY. DO NOT DO ART TRADES/REQUESTS FOR THIS GUY.
It is about fucking time I brought all of this to light. You stopped talking to me and un-watched me, so I can only assume you want nothing else to do with me. I don't have to defend you anymore. We're not friends, and now it's time to warn others so that they don't have to go through the same BULLSHIT you put me and so many other people through.

CTNx 2017!AHHHH CTNx was so fun!! Extreeeemely crowded and overwhelming but it was nice not having to carry my portfolio around this time. I also got to buy stuff this year since I'm actually making good money haha. But omg it was insanely crowded. On Saturday I could barely walk through the isles. It was still great though and a lot of my followers were able to pick me out in the crowd bc of my beanie and eyebrows and it was so awesome to talk to them~
I got to meet some of my art heroes!! Tiffany Ford recognized me and asked to hang out??? And I got to chat with Ross from Game Grumps for a sec (i wasn't sure if i was gonna talk to him but we're twitter mutuals so i went for it and it was worth it). I met a bunch of other cool artists I vaguely knew from twitter and they were even cooler IRL! One of the Pixar recruiters I pitched to over the summer remembered me! Apparently she was keeping tabs on me and congratulated me on my job at Disney and told me to hit her up when I was feeling ready to

Positive Vent WeeeeDon't worry this isn't a negative vent this is actually a positive vent (WOW SO SURPRISING)
Ever since I stopped animating Tomsworld, I felt so good..since Tomsworld was good at first but than it started to become like a fucking choir and I felt like I was forced to draw/animate these AU characters.
These characters were never mine to begin with, and I knew that since day 1. I just felt like I owned them because, of how much I drew and talked about them.
But July 10th will always be an important day for me. It was the day I FINALLY stepped out of my comfort zone. I redesigned the TW characters into something original, and it was really scary at first.
Because, I thought you guys would hate it since, most cartoon reboots/redesigns nowadays mostly get negative feedback and I was afraid of getting only negative feedback and being judged harshly.
But..that didn't happen at all. You all loved them so much, that ya'll even made fanart not too long later. It made me so
Talking about the Robobuddies' livestreamAlright, let's talk about this. I was going to let this one pass, but enough people have been curious. The livestream is still up, and Robobuddies has shown our DeviantArt exchange. So, on Sunday July 15th, 2018 a YouTube animation reviewer Robobuddies decided to stream a reading of my novel Growing Around: Party Panic with some of her friends. While I was subscribed to Robobuddies at the time, I didn't watch the stream because I was too busy to watch a stream. And I have grown jaded to people reading my work. But, here's the link to it: [link]
I had heard that certain scenes within the book, Robobuddies had gotten flashbacks to her childhood. And the next day both the thumbnail and the description of the livestream had changed. I had only a vague idea of what had happened. The next day, I tried to talk it over with her over DeviantArt, and that seemed to make things worse. At the end of the conversation she sai
