To the reader of previews: This really is important. Please read this, and all the way through.
I don't know how many people out there know of Terry Pratchett and his Discworld books, but the aforementioned writer is one of the best in the world in fact, he was knighted.
But as with everything else good, it comes to an end. Pratchett was diagnosed with early Alzheimers, a fatal disease which kills only after complete loss of memory.
My grandmother was killed by Alzheimers.
I can tell you personally, it was one of the if not the absolute worst experience of my life. Seeing her slowly fade, knowing that one day she would look at my face and not recognize it. And when that day came, knowing that she was not all that long for this world. But she lingered, and we never knew what sudden bursts of memory would occur, and when she wouldn't know anyone. The worst part was that a few days before she passed on, she had one of those bursts of memories, and
Edit+Feature!I realized that I've not actually drawn anything non-pirate related in a very long time, and I need to kick myself into getting your requests done. [It's still got slots open, btw.] http://hooksilversparrow.deviantart.com/journal/30880301/
What do you do when you don't feel like drawing anything but treasure chests and desert islands and maps?
Also, I have two LONG-overdue things to show you. The first is an AWESOME piece of artwork that :iconrashan: did for me. It's a piece of fanart from my favorite favorite operetta, Ruddigore.
It's about this scene http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDFeHrw8dMM isn't Ruthven (pronounced Riven, the one all in black) the most adorable thing you've ever seen?
Anyway. Go look at RaShan's gallery. It's awesome.
The last thing.

Questions [Plus the music rec's I promised you!]First off the questions.
I know I don't have the best art in the world, but I'm constantly looking to improve. And it seems the only way I can ever get anything done is if there's someone waiting for it.
So, I ask you all.
What would you like to see coming from me?

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!
Open Sketchbook and New Auction soon!Open Sketchbook
Thanks to everyone who give me their advice on how to improve the auctions. Starting next week I will have stash folder with a few works in progress. The link will be public so everyone can visit it. I will ask your help to improve the designs so I can sell them in the next auction or in the "Logo Store" section I plan to open.
For safety reasons, the images won't be too big and they won't be online for too long.
Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project ab
Happy 3rd Anniversary, Wyngro!Well, we got through year 3 of Wyngro everyone! I can’t tell you all how proud I am of all the artists that have joined this group in that amount of time, and how much you’ve all helped it grow. I’ve learned so much from this group, working with people, communication skills, organizing, art in general, (especially have gotten a lot better at color theory!) and just meeting and getting to know an assortment of interesting people.
I’m not gonna lie, there were a lot of really tough obstacles this year to get past, a lot of negative vibes, and a lot of people that have come and gone. I think that it’s a very easy option for a lot of leaders to abandon a project when things get tough and relationships get tested.
But like the cornball I am, I always think back to a quote from good old Dumbledore, where sometimes we must choose between what is easy and what is right.
Although it wasn’t easy, I worked through the struggles of toxic people and negativity, b
Wyngro RULES -- Quick GuideKnowing what behavior is and isn't allowed in our group is a very important part of being a Wyngro member! Make sure you read through these rules carefully. Ignoring the rules of the group can result in a warning if you break them too many times!
Our rules are also much more elaborated on our RULES & ETTIQUETTE page as well, so please have a look!
The Wyngro community has a lot of rules to remember, so you might get a mod message every now and then. That’s okay! You’re not a “bad member”, so don’t worry. However, if you do, make sure you reply back to your mod message and DO NOT ignore it! Sometimes we’re simply reminding you of things for the future. All you have to do is reply back, letting us know you understand.
