I've moved accounts! Come devwatch me at
This account will stay here as an archive. I'll occasionally check messages and stuff here, too, but all new art will be posted on the new account. Thanks so much for watching!
Account Change pending...Hey everyone!
I've decided that on August 28th, 2010, I will switch to using :icongabapple: as my primary DA account. I'll make a more official announcement (with a drawing to commemorate) on the day, but you're more than welcome to watch me over there before then if you like. I'm hoping to get it all prettied up for the release date. ...which happens to be my birthday! Weird.
Anyway, thanks for everything, guys. I love love love the llamas and comments and favs and watches and shouts! It seriously makes my day every time.
<3 <3 <3
Thinking about changing accountsSo I dunno; what do you guys think? Is it annoying when people move accounts?
I love all of the art here on this one, and the comments and all of my watchers and everything, but I am really tired of being called "Gab Furry" -- it's Gab /FURY/ as in RAAAAAEEEGGGG. But maybe it doesn't matter all that much in the end, especially since I do draw quite a bit of the animals/anthro stuff. Hmmm!
Do you guys have any input? The name I would switch to is :icongabapple: - which happens to be what I go under in all of my new things, including my portfolio.
If I did switch, it'd be in the next month or so since my paid time is running out here... so it'd be good timing!
con goingI went to my first anime convention this last weekend (actually, I'm still there even though it's over) -- http://www.animefannatiku.com/ ! It was really fun and chill. Didn't meet Jimmy Kudo's voice actor (I guess he was out of the country), but I DID meet the fine people at :iconika-boushi:! I got a little Jimmy drawing done and it is so cute. *_*
So for my cons, this means I've been to
1 furry convention (furcon)
1 gaming expo (penny arcade)
1 writing conference (wfyr)
1 anime convention (fannatiku)
Happy times. 8) I wanna work on my anime drawing skills (among other things, of course!), in hopes that it will help me spread the love of Detective Conan/Case Closed!
I wonder what my next con will be?!
ask me anythinghttps://www.formspring.me/gabapple
I'm digging this formspring thing, but hoping I can get some more questions. Feel free to ask anything -- I might just answer it. Bonus points for art/process questions. I'm hoping this will help me write material for the new Monster Ink Studios site.

The DERE TypesExplained Tsuki Style.
These are all the dere's I know
If there are more, please tell me and I'll add on :3
Bakaderederived from baka, idiot and dere, lovey dovey
- A bakadere as the name implies is a stupid idiot in love, clumsy with the way they're in love, but super in love :3
Bodere: They lash out when embarrassed, and prefer fists over words.
Byoukidere: Usually very sweet and kind, but suffer from some disease (usually a fatal one.) They are often frail and weak in nature.
Dandere derived from silent, is simply a silent type
- Dandere is someone who doesn't talk, is shy and antisocial until the right person comes along, at that point they will talk and become more confidant.
- Daruderes are those who are nonchalant to those who they love, but they do express emotions, just usually show no interest in those who like them
Icon Contest [closed]
Hi. I'm running another contest.
I really need a new icon, an icon that I can probably use for a long time (for my YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuMhcz39FjIPeHgOEyChvcg?disable_polymer=true)
so!! why not hold a contest
-USE HIS NORMAL FORM, ignore the monster and past
-No pixel icons, it will ruin the quality on YouTube.
-You CAN animate it, but make sure that the first frame is the main frame, because most people won't be able to see the animation unless they see a notification of me pop up.
-You can do anything with it! Background can be anything, any color, I don't really mind.
-You can shade it, leave it flat, etc.
-Any form of art is allowed! Cell shaded, realistic, paper, lineless, ANYTHING!
-I'd prefer head shots (shoulder to head), but if you want to squeeze in something else, feel free!
-He can wear anything!!
-I don't really have a preference of how it should look. I'm happy with anything :>

Art Trades! (OPEN)
Since I finished most of my black-ink art trades already, I'm uploading a new journal for designs and red ink illustration, as promised in the poll, but because I'll be concentrating mostly on school now it'll take me much more time to finish the drawings!
I'll accept trades once I finish the drawings I'm currently working on, but I'll start drawing the new ones after my exams end! It will be open for a while!
