November Features

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 4, 2008, 12:08 AM
Random stuff first....


Before I get to the features, SenshiStock posted a news article regarding a Deviant in need.  Sara Baker was in an accident a year ago which  resulted in Locked-in Syndrome, a condition in which a person cannot move anything except their eyes, but still has full mental capacities and intact sensation in their entire body.  Her family has a fund to help with expenses and to get a special computer (that senses eye movements) which would allow her to get online and interact with people more. If you're interested in helping out, you can read the article here:  news.deviantart.com/article/61…;

Also, apologies, but I'm extremely behind in my DA message box right now.  It was bad enough before, but then I went out of town for several days for a wedding, and now it's bursting at the seams.  Sorry if I haven't responded to your comment.  And sorry, but I might end up deleting many of them.  Bad, bad haku, I know, I know!  I do read them all though, even if I might not respond all the time.  D:

Man, I can't believe it's November already.  The year has flown by.  I do hope that any of you eligible U.S. citizens will get out there to vote tomorrow, no matter which candidate you endorse.  I hope the lines aren't too insane for you....  :)


November Features


As usual, I'm featuring sci-fi/fantasy artists (with under 50k pageviews) whose works I've enjoyed browsing through.  They've got some really beautiful stuff in their galleries, so please pay them a visit.  Thanks!  I'm also featuring one community.  I think it's a lovely resource and could prove useful for people.

  • Using my artwork as your desktop image.
  • Printing out my art for your personal use (like putting it up on the wall of your room.)
  • Displaying my artwork UNALTERED as part of a picture gallery on your site. (It'd be nice if you gave credit.)


I would ask that you please do NOT do the following:
  • Other than re-sizing, please do NOT alter/edit my art. Do not crop it. Do not change the colors. Do not draw on top of it. Do not remove my signature. Do not add text over it.
  • Do NOT use my artwork as part of your website/blog/myspace background or layout design.

Will be waiting to see who the new president of yours will be - and most importantly, what he's gonna do in the future with all those problems arising!

Man, another accident? We had a pretty bad one around here lately too. Guess I just have to pray harder, huh? LOL. JK. I know, accidents will happen. Hope everything goes well for her!

How tragic :( I'll try to donate a bit tonight. Here's hoping she can make somewhat of a recovery, or what's possible in that horrible condition.


Lovely finds for the features <3
