I'm Not Dead!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 15, 2018, 9:16 PM
Hi guys! ^^ Sorry for not posting much lately, a lot has been happening lately, and it's really affecting me a lot.

First and foremost, health issues. A while back I was out of town and somehow pulled a tendon in my thumb?? I don't know how that happened, but ever since my daily tasks have been slightly limited and I have to put my coffee or pen down just to massage it. Not only that but, again, my back is really f'ed up. I'm pretty positive I have sciatica based on what WebMD has told me, and it doesn't help that I still can't sit or stand for long periods of time. The more I ache I either have to lay down or move, and neither position helps me in my work. But I'm seeing my primary doctor soon so hopefully this will be cleared up!

Also, college is kicking me in the butt, and honestly? I don't think I'm cut out for it. It's affecting me emotionally, physically, and mentally. It also doesn't help that all my friends have, or will soon, graduate. I do feel happy for them, of course, but jealousy fills me that I can't perform as well as they can, also that I'm like two freaking years behind, and honestly I might not make it. On top of this, I am taking an online summer course that's taking up my time. My graduated friends now want to do stuff but I'm still stuck in college :'D. I'm trying, but it's hard, and am seriously considering taking a break from it all. Not for sure how my parents will say to that though haha.

I love to write. I've been writing more often than I can say, and I have like four five stories that I'm working on at the moment. The ideas are endless to me and I really want to work more towards that. I've bounced my ideas off my parents and they say go for it, and I really am! Maybe I could even publish one of them, if I stop thinking of the other ones of course lol.

I also love to draw. Lately I started doing the 30 Day Gemsona Challenge and honestly, it's really slowing me down. I thought I could at least get a drawing in every few days, but I haven't posted anything because of a horrible art block. I'm pretty positive it's because it's Steven Universe and its style and concept that has been warping my drawings. Nothing is looking decent and I keep telling myself to just take a step back and do something else. Well, I've been doing that for like two weeks now and have some other really good looking pieces I want to share! So, I'm going to place the Challenge on the side for now. Yes, I'll still continue it, once I'm in the mood to really draw SU again. I have drawn a lot more Pokemon and OC related stuff more than you can think!

Not only that but I'm working more on business related aspects with my work. I love beading and crafts, and many of my peers tell me that they would buy them, so I will! Over on my Etsy shop I will be selling my works that include my keychains, earrings, as well as my art! Please do follow my shop, FyreDesignsBoutique, for new listings!

So with that, I am back online. Doodling, writing, beading, etc. I want to do more of the things I love, and I love being on here doing it. My friends and watchers are what keep me going, thriving, and wanting to be better. Even if it's just a favorite on my art, I deeply appreciate it. You guys always make my day! I wouldn't be who I am today without this wonderful community of artists.

Hope y'alls lives are well, and remember, keep those flames bright! Flame

  5. Please check your messages often, as I may have questions/clarifications to run by you.

       b)  You may switch out the character with no charge if you do not want to pay extra. 
  6. Tips are welcome! If you wish to tip, you may send it through my “Buy Me a Coffee” button on my main page. Thank you in advance!

  1. After a commission is completed, only small changes are allowed to be made (small coloring, small mistakes, etc.) free of charge. 
       a)  Any bigger changes will come with extra charge (additions, background change, etc.).
  2. Any mistakes on my behalf (misread description, missed a detail, etc.) will be corrected free of charge.
       a)  If the mistake is a result of insufficient information or not mentioned to me when I accepted your commission, I am not obliged to make corrections/changes.
       b)  If, by any means, you realize you forgot to add something while I’m working on your commission, please contact me as soon as possible. The longer you wait to contact me, the longer it will take to fix it.  
  3. I will never redraw an entire commission. You must state everything clearly and in full detail when ordering as I do it exactly as stated. If you insist on a redraw, commission me again.

V. Usage and Copyright

Fall Update!

Sat Oct 14, 2017, 2:22 PM
Hey guys! ^^

Hope all of y'all's fall is going well! lol It's finally cooling down for some of ya, and some places are already reporting snow! And not to mention Halloween is just around the corner! :pumpkin: Here's a little update on how I'm doing and plans for art in the future!

I've been putting my main focus on passing my classes this semester, and I'm a dummy and signed up for basically all math classes |D. So I'm dealing with all that right now, and relearning the German I took in highschool (101 yall woo!). Most of my time is dedicated to that, I put my heart and soul into that first since a passing grade is a C+ for us CS students. I should be fine, and I try to get in some art on the side as much as I can. Bigger pieces not so much, but I've gotten couple of those in that took me like two weeks |D. I'm still here doing art though!

I am also finally setting up my Etsy shop! My mom is more on the mechanics of selling things, so she's helping me with that, and by next week I'll be selling some of my bead-work! I'm selling key-chain/zipper pulls and earrings, so check that out if you're interested! (I'll add the link to it here asap). I also set up my own Ko-fi page for the fun of it, and if you guys ever wanted to tip me on my work. School work has been bogging me down enough that I can't land a good job, and I need the money to pay for school too, so I will be opening up paypal commissions as of today! Message me if you are down for a commission!

Art wise I have plenty of things planned to draw. I plan on drawing more Pokemon, and since I've exhausted the basic Ghost pokemon (there's not that many I fount out), I'm going to go onto basic Dark Pokemon. Then once November rolls around, I plan on doing Grass types, then Ice types, and kind of go with the flow of the seasons. I'll try to post them once a day so none of your inboxes will get flooded |D I'm also working on revamping some of my OCs and their designs, and maybe adding some more once I get around to it! I'm putting the Gemsona 30 Day Challenge on hold because of school, and I might pick that up around winter break. I'm also working on some more pixel icons for SU, so expect those too! I'm still sketching some things for AUs and whatnot as well, I just got to find a good time to just sit down and draw all this!

Hope y'all have a wonderful fall, and go trick some treats for Halloween!
Keep your flames bright! :flame:

Late Summer Update!

Tue Aug 8, 2017, 10:52 PM
Hello everybody!
I hope your summer has gone well! School is around the corner for some of you, and fall is close to coming! I am in the middle of the monsoon season where I'm at right now so it is very humid and rainy this past month. I want to check in and give some life updates with all of yall!

Currently I'm still in college, and will be for some time now that I'm finally on the right track aha :'D I'll be focusing more on my studies this upcoming semester, and I might not be as active on here in terms of large/bigger art pieces. Art stuffs will be slow, but I promise you I still am managing my time for both art and school! You may see more pixel art as I may be practicing for a possible career in game development and design (at least video games for sure), and you may get a sudden slew of art in one day too! Classes start in a week so you might not get a lot from me until I get settled into the new year.

On another note, regarding fan fusions of Steven Universe, I will be nixing them forever. Well, at least full fledged colored designs, I may post sketches I don't know. I thought it would be cool to do fan fusions of canon characters in the show, but with all the reposters and resusers that steal the art without the original artist's permission, I was hesitant. Now, I am nixing them for good, since I have already had my copyright infringed. I will not be posting my art for the pleasure of other people to use. As much as it is fun and entertaining, and I know some of yall like fan fusions in general and voting for certain fusions from certain artists, but I'm tired of having to check online each time to see if somebody used my art and have to ask them to take it down. It's frustrating and tiring as an artist to worry about others using your art without you knowing.

On a better note this time, I'm going to be hosting a mini fusion call for my character Ocean Jasper over on my tumblr! There are only two spots left (I may open a few more if needed) so hop on over there if you're interested! I also have a few art piece ideas I've been meaning to draw, and other things I obviously have to continue, so I'll try to get to them as soon as I can! 

Keep your flames bright! Flame

Hey everybody! Quick update before I go on here: I'm currently finishing up a project for classes that has eaten up the majority of my art time. Once I turn that in Monday, I'm free as a bird to draw anything! Going with that, I have decided to open up some slots for free gem fusions with Sphal!

Rules


:bulletorange: Comment below your character you want to fuse with!
:bulletorange: I will only accept the request if it is your character, and your character only!
:bulletorange: It is best that you have a gemstone fusion's name, otherwise your request will just take longer!
:bulletorange: If you have an idea of what the fusion may look like, include that in your comment! (This includes weapon!)
:bulletorange: Please also include your character's height in your comment! (If you don't know, just say how tall they are relative to a canon SU character)

This is on a first come, first serve basis! If you don't get a slot, don't worry! You can also commission me anytime!

Slots


1. NuttyandProud03's Hanna
2. cj-scribbles's Rainbow Fluorite

9. FlamethrowerMan09's Blue Topaz
10. Pokederp198's Demantoid

UPDATE: All slots are closed! Thank you all for signing up! As a small update, these will take longer than expected because my tablet's cord still hasn't come in yet :'D Yay! Don't worry though, once that gets in, to the drawing board I go! ALSO I want to point out the design process of how they look is made entirely by me, so once they are finished and posted I will not be changing anything! They are who they are!

Keep your flames bright! :flame:

Why Make Characters?

Sun Feb 19, 2017, 9:28 AM
Because it's awesome! That's why! Haha actually I have really true reasons for making them, I keep on getting questions by people on why I make such characters, and why they have this personality and stuff, and they're like not amused. I don't know why, but it just makes me upset because I connect through a lot of my characters! For them to not like them in turn makes them not like me. It might sound crazy but it's true! Soooo, I've decided to make a little journal on my reasons behind making each, individual character!


Amber Skyy by Fyreglyphs

Amber Skyy


Amber was my first, ever, fan character. I may have thought up ideas of me being a character in previous worlds and stories before her, but she was my first serious character I've ever made. At the time, my friend who lives in Colorado introduced me to an awesome new series called Maximum Ride. I instantly fell in love, and as I read and waited for the next book to come out, I started designing.

At first she was going to just be the lost twin sister of Iggy (canon character) and join the flock once she got caught up to them, but now she has become more independent as I've worked on her character! When I first started designing her, she was going to have red wings, cheetah ears, a monkey tail, and some other freakish attributes. Over the years I've adjusted that, as well as her story I've been working on, just so it would make sense to me, my readers, and to the general plot of the MR series. I never thought she'd end up like this! I'm so proud of her, and a lot of her looks are actually from me! I've always dreamed of having wings, and I really connect through her personality and her feelings towards her lost brother. Plus, I've also thrown in a lot of my experiences in my life into her story, which is still on the works over on my fanfiction account, if you want to read!


Breezy (2) by Fyreglyphs

Beurana (Breezy) Gonzales


Breezy was my first, ever character that wasn't directly related to the Maximum Ride series. She's more inspired by the series, as there hasn't been a bear mutant seen yet! I first designed her for a group here on deviantArt: Maximum-Academy after tossing a polarbear mutant I was not really connecting with. So I started anew, and she started attending the Academy at age... 16? I believe that's right, and man did she go off from there!

I originally designed her to have my personality, and strangely enough, she changed over the years! She used to be fairly shy but loves the outdoors, like me, and as she made friendships, relationships, got married and moved on over to Hawkings-Manor, she's not that shy anymore! She is truly the most treasured character I have, as she has truly blossomed over the years. Maybe that's because I have too? I used to be really shy, and to connect with others on dA at the moment, the best I could do that was through her. She has a bit more spunk in her step than me, and has really made a good life. If she were real, like in the real world? We'd be best friends.


Zytka New by Fyreglyphs

Zytka Kowalski


The biggest question I always get is why on earth would I create Zytka. Well first off, I wanted to create a character with nearly the opposite personality of me at the time... and plus I was gonna get a teacher position at Maximum-Academy, which I still have! I also was messing around with a lot of characters at the time, but nothing was really clicking with me. I landed with Zytka, and I just fell in love with her design!

Personality wise? She was the complete opposite of me. She was outgoing, older, engaged with everybody, very flirtatious, yadda yadda yadda. But I knew I couldn't make a character like that and just... not be part of them, do you know what I mean? The main thing that Zytka and I share was the "mother hen" thing. She protects and cares for everybody, especially her close friends. She also loves kids, as well as I! I've worked with kids before and tied that into her personality to help better rp with her and stuff. As of recent though, I haven't rped her because of personal reasons (i.e. I have too many characters!) I've also been asked why her skin is green, then why she is part plant, and I always say that it's because of her design, and that, again, there are no obvious plant mutants in the MR series!


Cyan by Fyreglyphs

Cyan Pan


I love Cyan so much! She was my first character to help me fulfill my first big admin position in a group! She originates as the leader of the Adeptio Juvenis clan over at Neverland-Gangs, but currently... I have no idea what to do with her lol I wanna keep her though! When I first designed her, I know I needed to make her an elf of some kind, and I thought, well, what if she was thirteen and the clan leader job got dumped on her? Boom, Cyan was created!

I really put a lot of thought into her, especially with her skills in the gang as well as her light magic. She's especially skilled in archery, which I couldn't help but include, and makes light arrows which I was way too excited about creating. When it came to her personality I had a bit of trouble, and originally threw a lot of authoritative stuff in there, as I just recently gained the admin position, then she started to round out into a more teenager form. Then I realized that a lot of my teenager days started getting woven into her character too, especially how she handles situations lol. Her design has kinda changed? But not by much. I really do need a new design for her though.


Dekel - New by Fyreglyphs

Dekel Le’eiun


I also made Dekel for Neverland-Gangs so I could intermingle with the different gangs, and again he is also homeless at the moment. As you can see, he is a fairy. I thought, what if I could make a guy character (which I really needed at the time) and make him pretty? You get Dekel, the flirty flower fairy.

I literally designed him to be a flirt, and that's all he was: a flirt. I really didn't put much thought into his personality until recently when I was redesigning him because his old picture was just... *shivers* old, ugly art. So as I was finishing him up, I did some polishing on his background and delved more into it. Now, he's like the flirt who only flirts cuz he's kinda lonely but doesn't admit it and protects his younger brother at all costs while also providing them kinda guy. I also have fallen in love with his design, especially his hair which was inspired by an online character maker and I just went from there! I do connect with him on a deeper level, as he does communicate at times his feelings when he's nervous or just wants to connect with people. Plus, his ambitions for a great career that involves him making money as well as enjoying it is a big connection factor with me!


Echo Fullbody by Fyreglyphs

Echo


I was creating left and right for a really strong character student at Maximum-Academy at the time, as my character Breezy wasn't there anymore and didn't want to just have a teacher there. I had such a hard time making a character and stumbled upon Echo's design. I threw him together as quickly as I could, and never realized that I would be keeping him longer than I expected.

Echo is a real nerd, geek, whatever you'd call him. He loves books and he loves learning, which I never really thought of at the time I made him. I originally wanted to make a very adventurous character, which he was at first, until reality really slapped him in the face. I also wanted to always draw him with his hood up to prove he's very insecure about being part penguin, and that he hated his hair, but now he's even walked around without the hoodie on! I first made him at the brink of being a teen, still acting very childlike, and the past many months I've realized he's almost 15! So, I knew I had to work on his character, and started weaving in puberty and really connecting with the other teens at the academy. Now, he reads at least one book a day that's typically on biology or on occasion a fantasy novel. He's starting to get out of his shell now too, and realizing his personal gains and beliefs, especially his sexuality: he's asexual and doesn't really know it yet!


Janelle by Fyreglyphs

Janelle


So I really wanted to make a good "bad guy" character for Maximum-Academy and I was having a lot o trouble. I wanted to create a "bad" character that really believed what she was doing was good, but also not make them insane! Then I made a background for a character, then the art, and Janelle was created! And man I am so proud of making her! She's one of my fave characters! ^^

Her design was actually made off of that subeta.hq character maker thing when I was making up a batch of adopts, and I fell in love with her design. So I swapped her out and put some other design in and started making her background and such from there. At first she was going to be a student, but she is such a sarcastic, loner gal that I decided to put her up for working for the ITex branch at Maximum-Academy. At first she was just a sarcastic bitch, pardon my french, since I really wanted a character like that, then realized that she has a very strong connection with me introvert-wise. She keeps to herself a lot, likes to sleep a lot, curious at everything, notices a lot of things, etc. I never thought that I would connect with a character like her! I'm so proud of her too, since her instincts and certain habits are basically mine!


Photo Op! Tailee by Fyreglyphs

Tailee


I absolutely love this adorable fluttery girl! >w< At the time I was experimenting with making a new character that would fit over at Hawkings-Manor and she came to be! Then as time progressed, I decided to swap her over to Maximum-Academy just so she'd get an education. xP

When I first designed her, all I wanted was a character with wings, but I knew just wings wasn't going to be enough. I wanted to start them off young so she'll blossom into a great character! Tailee was then made, original name was Zhu Li Tai and her background was a tad different, but then I just simplified it so it'd not be too complicated. She also originally had magenta colored eyes cuz she was also part platypus cuz why the hell not |D. But I cut it once I got her over to Maximum-Academy. Why she has two sets of wings is the biggest question I always get! I wanted her to be part bird, but also a bit of something else, and the dragonfly DNA she has now makes her the fastest girl alive lol. I'm really happy about her design, and she has the most bubbliest personality out of my characters! I'm trying to connect to her more on a social level, and trying to see her world through her eyes is just tons of freaking fun *v*. It was then that I noticed that her hair style is basically Echo's and I was like... welp, I'll just try not to do that next time! xD


Paisley by Fyreglyphs

Paisley


Honestly I only created Paisley for the sake of having another character over at Hawkings-Manor, but now she's one of my top fave characters to draw! I mean, she has okapi legs. Who doesn't love that? Plus, she's my first openly homosexual character! 

I was really inspired by a character already in a group who had very interesting legs based off a big cat, and I kinda wanted to go off of that but at a different angle. So I did research on animals with cool legs, and thought, ooh Okapi legs look badass! So I started up Paisley's character design, and man her named changed at least five times over the course of her design xD. Once I got her background down, it took me even longer to draw her! I never thought how difficult it would be to draw okapi legs!! -o- But I did it, and I'm so proud of how she turned out! I think the biggest thing that I connect with Paisley is being pretty smart at her age and loving sports despite she can't play anymore (I have bad knees and can't play soccer anymore :/). When I was young, I was told to be very smart and that's how I got into one of the best schools in the state, and if she were alive, in the real world, she'd be in the same boat. So I've been weaving in my school experience and feelings towards that, as well as mixing in some things that I'm not good at: for example, she loves acting. If I were ever up on a stage, I'd freeze and then run off cuz yeah xD


Sphale Says Hi! by Fyreglyphs

Sphalerite Fire (Sphale)


Okay the main reason for me making a gemsona was because of the god dang Steven Universe cartoon that I've gotten addicted to! Once I caught up with the show a year ago, I decided that I needed to make a gemsona, and quick! It took me a while to find a good one that'll fit with me, and I was aiming for an orange, yellow gem, and fell in love with sphalerite. In particular, the fire it has under certain lights.

I first designed her off of the gemsona.maker thing online, and she had a star on her shirt and she was part of the Crystal Gems. But as time passed, I started to create her background and making her weapon based all on my personality (I thought, she'd be a close-fighting gem but also providing distance if needed). So she can summon a meteor hammer which also had a star on it, but her background wasn't adding up with me for the longest time. Over the course of when I originally made her (by the way drawing her took me over three months ugh) I kept changing her background a lot. Once I got that down, she needed a new design to get rid of that star, because now I'm thinking, nah she's not part of the Crystal Gems, what should she look like then?? Then I did it, I made a new design of her that I am overly ecstatic about! No gemsona maker needed! Now she resides over at Gems-of-Earth and living on Earth as she's kinda stuck there but she likes it!

Her background and personality are really key parts of my life right now, as I transferred colleges to back home, and really identifying myself on where I fit in with the world and what I want to be in the future. She is a true introvert, like Janelle, really like me. Out of all of my characters, she is the one that is basically me right now in the real world, as we are handling several things together. I find joy and peace when rping her and drawing her, as she is really helping me cope with irl situations. By the way, since I completely forgot to mention this, I wanted her hair to be inspired by fire, which is my screen name on dA, and goes by Sphalerite Fire because of that! At first I wanted her to wield fire, but thought that was too much of a stretch. Her hair has highlights because my hair has highlights too! Well at least in the summer but whatever lol.




Wow I never thought I'd make this long of a journal!! I'm happy I got this down though, as people need to realize that my characters are my babies :I Don't mess with them, as you are pretty much messing with me in the long run! There are a few characters that I've made, such as Ocean Jasper, Linnie Mays, and Speck, that I haven't really made their backgrounds yet, but don't fret. I do plan on making them great characters, but that takes time and good effort from me! I have a life outside of dA, which requires a lot of studying and completing college, so that comes first ^^

If you managed to read through all of this, I thank you for spending your time doing this, as this means a lot to me. If you're interested about learning more about my characters, check out their profiles or ask them questions over at my art Tumblr!

Kep your flames bright! :flame:

My Year and Cards Against Humanity

Fri Dec 9, 2016, 8:49 PM
Hey guys, just wanted to give you all an update on my life status right now.

Currently, well, I'm dropping out of college. But only the college I'm in right now because, well, of a lot of things. I could go on and on about it, but all that would do is turn this journal into a rant on how people suck. On the plus side, I'm transferring to the public college back home, which is... 500 miles away? Yeah, that seems right. So if you've noticed more art and less talk from me these days, it's because life has been dragging me by the ear ever since the summer ended. I plan on going in undecided because engineering was a bitch. So I should be able to post more stuff, and I might be able to do the 30 Day Gemsona Challenge I've been hearing about!  Otherwise, if you want to chat with me some more on this topic, leave a comment below!

On the other hand to spice things up a bit, who wants to play the crudest game of all time? Come join me over here (cah.squick.me/) and play Cards Against Humanity with me! There is a password though, which has been underlined in this very journal. Plug that in and we can start playing ^^ Take a break from your studies and lets play!

Keep those flames bright! :flame:

Book Adaptations - My Thoughts

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 5, 2016, 12:44 PM
Books are amazing things, but movies, tv shows, plays, and many other things are cool too. But book adaptations? Yeah, that's going to be a little difficult to do.

Okay some book adaptations are amazing! Harry Potter, Hunger Games, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Shining (well it's Stephen King you can't mess that up), and several others. And mind you, most of these books are made into movies. 

Then there are the books made into tv shows: Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries (and some are actually considered better than the books).

So where does the fine line sit when somebody wants to put up a book on the big screen? Well, personally, if it's a simple book (like To Kill a Mockingbird) or a book that is famous on its own, make it movie! But, let's say you want to make a movie off of, hmm... Maximum Ride for example? Not a movie! The first book has so many chapters and cliff hangers it has been screaming for being created into a tv show! So why would people want to cram all that information into an hour and a half movie? Oh wait, they won't and they can't; they cut out bits and the funding isn't enough to make the cgi look realistic. Hell Game of Thrones has dragons for crying out loud, and Max's wings sprout from slits in her back at will! Was that in the books? No. I swear, if they just make the godamn books into a tv show, everybody would be happy. The book already has plenty of cliff hangers throughout it for it to be so, and having the perfect pilot (which, honestly isn't too bad to create) would get so many viewers already!

Series books = tv shows.
Single books = movies.

Easy enough.

WE SHALL SEE~!

My wifi hates me and apparently my bedtime is midnight. :I I'm in college mom and dad.

Oh well, I am getting a little tired anyways....
