I shake my magic eight ball and it reads "future is uncertain."

I haven't updated anything in about a year, but that is because I have been extremely busy with school and other aspects of life. A lot of stuff has been going on and I just haven't found the time or desire to create pixel art on the computer - But wow, guys. I am still so surprised to log in and see that people still like my pixel art. I thought my account would wither away into the shadows once I stopped updating. Not that I am complaining - I love the fact that people are still enjoying it.


Using my Stuff:
With that said, I have been getting a few notes here and there about using my work in other works of art. There are some things I am more than willing to let you use (be it with dolls, computer graphics, whatever) - just let me know what it is and how you want to use it. As long as you aren't distorting or cutting up my pixel arts and slapping it on some crappy myspace glitter....thing (and as long as you credit/source hurr hurr) I'll probably be okay with it. Don't hesitate to contact me, for although I slither amongst the hidden and forgotten ally ways of DeviantArt with the beasties, I still log in on a regular basis to check notes - if not to just lurk and favorite (without commenting) awesome pieces of art.


Anyway, I have created some interesting things in the traditional art classes I have taken, but since the canvases are so large, it's a bit difficult to scan and I don't have a digital camera. Perhaps in the future I will be able to update with some of those. Maybe then people will realize that I can indeed create art outside of the pixel realm, even. Boy howdy.

I don't think I'll be updating for a little while, but I just wanted to post (for those that actually remember me and care) letting you all know I am still around and I DO read all of the comments left on my deviations. Aaaaaaaaall of them - and sometimes I even reply! :woot:

<3 to those who still read and watch me. I am continuously grateful for the support that has been given to me in the past.

-------Journal Entry---------
I have decided to take a short art break form DeviantART. Don't worry, this isn't one of those drama filled "I HATE YOU DA!" posts, or anything. Or maybe I'm sorry for that because I personally find those type of entries amusing. I don't know about you guys...

First of all, I haven't been in the mood to do any art lately. I haven't been feeling as artistic as I normally do, so that's why I have been neglecting DA as a whole. I even let my subscription run out (As much as I love those spiffy and convenient features) and I don't want to buy another one until I know I'm going to be active. What a waste that would be, ya know?  (I am editing an older entry for this so I can keep my awesome shark layout on my front page, though! Haha.) I will try harder to reply to my watch list and friends. I'm sorry that I haven't been doing that as much as I feel I should.

In other news, I am taking a Summer semester. I can hear you all cringe at that, but I don't really mind Summer semesters and I am taking a drawing course where I will be drawing more realistic subjects and...still life. Realism is totally stepping out of my box, but I think this is good. I think it will help me improve my art skills in the end. :nod:

Also, I finally reached 10,000 pageviews! I completely forgot that I was near that mark until I checked and I then saw it had already happened. I seem to have been getting a lot of :+fav"s on my sushi piece lately. Like, a lot. I find that kind of surprising that this particular pixel art  seems to be getting the most attention, but I am very happy so many people like it. :)

Anyway, I won't be inactive forever. I am hoping this drawing class will inspire me to start drawing more traditional pieces at the very least. If I'm not too embarrassed to post some of my realism/still life, I definitely will. xD

I will try to log in daily  to check notes and view some lovely art  - and I can still be found on MSN, o' course.

<3

It's that time again...to feature YOU!

I did this in :icontibodinjay:'s journal. and in return I am supposed to do it in mine - which I love doing anyway. I have been bored on DA lately so humor me?

Comment in this journal saying you would like to be featured and I will take a gander through your gallery and pick three deviations that I like best. I will do this for ten people, but make sure you have enough entries that I can look through. (If you have three entries...I will just have to put those up and that completely defies the whole point, yes?)

After you've commented, put this in your journal where you can feature people on your watch list. Of course, if you don't do this...I...honestly won't care. I'm not going to check up on it or anything. :lmao:

1. :icontibodinjay: Life Blood by TibodinJay Ah, Dessert by TibodinJay Bantha Brew Bottlecap by TibodinJay

It has been almost a month since I have updated anything new.
I haven't created anything new, so that makes perfect sense! :D

If you're expecting another "artist block" post. you're absolutely right. :cookie:

I honestly haven't been in any sort of artistic mood. I have ideas, but no motivation to sit and actually draw them out. I haven't even felt like doodling or making any new jewelry. I realize how easily I get into these artist blocks, ruts, or what have you as you all have experienced from time to time. I haven't just up and left. For those I watch, I do look at your deviations and even though I haven't been commenting (I haven't been active here, in general - oh the waste of a subscription!) I have saved some that I do plan on commenting on soon.

Well, since this entry wasn't very interesting (are they ever? He he) I have featured some art that you can feast on with your eyes. Check these artists and pieces out. ;)

---------------------------

FEATURES:

If for some odd reason you're a pixel artist and haven't been introduced to his work, take a gander through :iconfool:'s gallery. His pixel art is seriously the best of the best. My "pixel art self esteem" hit zero after discovering his work, but it's quite inspiring nonetheless.

Please don't forget to press "download" on the first. It's beautifully animated:
. Shoesnail by fool Kikimora by fool
The second one reminds me of Brian Froud's art style.

Jareth art because I felt like it:
Jareth by G672 Jareth: Leather and Velvet by MelissaFindley
Anyone can appreciate Jareth's...erm...fashion sense, am I right?

Awesome movie. Awesome characters, Awesome art piece:
:thumb77991583:

I just started watching :iconlinus108nicole: Her stuff is A-mazing. Her attention to detail and realism is just...well, you'll see! Here are just a couple from my favorites:
Mikhail Bakunin 3 by linus108Nicole You Guys Got Any Milk? by linus108Nicole

And that is all for now. I want to do this more often. There is just so much beautiful artwork out there.

So, I was working on a pixel earlier (Yesterday? Yes. I believe it was yesterday.) and it was coming along splendidly. I minimized it in my program and went about doing something else. When I returned, a large amount of time had passed and I had kind of forgotten abou it. Then I had to reboot, so...I rebooted. Gort back online, diddle-daddled here and there and decided that I wanted to go back to working on my pixel but....JASC wasn't open...I had rebooted without saving! How could I BE so stupid? Ahhhhhh. Oh yes, I am ften guilty of working on something without saving often. You'd think after a couple of screw ups like this, I'd learn. Guess not...I'm a rebel!

Tell me your stories about neglecting to save, so I don't feel so bad. :lmao:

Also, quick question.
Do any of you guys use LiveJournal? I have just recently been reunited with my LiveJournal. It was interesting looking back at the old entries and comments left by other people.

If you have one, let me know! I don't have many friends over there and I would like to ad some of my friends here ova there. Comment or note me if you do. :nod:

.:ANSWERS to my favorite movies:.

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 11, 2008, 5:33 PM
So, the majority of the movies were guessed correctly, but some remained unknown. Here are the answers to my top 15 movies:

Movie Quote Quiz:
1. Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDB and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5. No cheating. That includes search engines such as Google and IMDB's internal search engine.

DON'T CHEAT!
I put some easy ones in there. :nod:

1. "Look, darlin', it's Johnny Ringo. Deadliest pistolier since Wild Bill, they say. What do you think, darlin', should I hate him?"Tombstone

2."Naw, a tiger shark's like a garbage can, it'll eat anything. Someone probably threw that in a river." Jaws

3."Well, if you like burgers give 'em a try sometime. I can't usually get 'em myself because my girlfriend's a vegitarian which pretty much makes me a vegitarian. But I do love the taste of a good burger. Mm-mm-mm. You know what they call a Quarter Pounder with cheese in France?" Pulp Fiction

4."That's it! See, at first I thought it was hate, too. Hate was all I knew, it built my world, it imprisoned me, taught me how to eat, how to drink, how to breathe. I thought I'd die with all my hate in my veins. But then something happened. It happened to me... just as it happened to you."V for Vendetta

5. "You might not be able to fight like a samurai, but you can at least die like a samurai. "Kill Bill

6."Have you ever wondered why, why the crime rate in Sandford is so low, yet the accident rate is so high? "Hot Fuzz

7."Well hello Mister Fancypants. Well, I've got news for you pal, you ain't leadin' but two things: Jack and shit... and Jack just left town."Army of Darkness

8."You know, taking us for ice creams in a blizzard... makes you wonder who the real whack jobs are."Girl, Interrupted

9. "It hasn't got a name. It's a new system. No one's ever been down here before. I wanted us all to discover it!"The Decent

10. "Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it. Anyone who wants to tag along is more than welcome."The Life Aquatic

11."Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?"Young Frankenstein

12."Oh, it's not the first time I was tossed out of a window, and it won't be the last. What can I say? I'm a rebel."The Emperor's New Groove

13. "Wanting people to listen, you can't just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you'll notice you've got their strict attention."Se7en

14."Even your Buddha and your Christ had quite a different vision. But nobody's paid much attention to them, not even your Buddhists and your Christians."K-PAX

15. "Well, you can't know. Not until you look at a dumpster. But when you climb into that thing for the first time and you pull those newspapers over you, that's when you know you've messed your life up. Somebody comes along like your son, and gives me a leg up, I'll take it. Even from a kid, I'll take it. "Pay it Forward

Thanks or playing - now go off and do this in your journal.
Those who guessed correctly win....well, the satisfaction of guessing correctly.

.:DD - Thanks, guys! + Animation Programs?:.

I logged on this evening only to see my message box filled up. Honestly, the first thing that popped into my mind was "Is someone purposefully spamming me?" Lol. Nope - I totally wasn't expecting it, but Merrymeeper's Tigerlily received a Daily Deviation.

Thank you so much :iconshonegold: for featuring it - it is much appreciated. <3

And a big thank you to everyone who has given me kind comments, favorites and watches. :nod:

In other news, I sucked it up and tried working in PS. It really isn't too difficult after awhile and I am getting used to where the tools are and everything. So even if I don't get my jasc program fixed, I will still be able to make pixel art - just nothing animated.

Does anyone know of any free, user friendly animation programs out there?

-------Journal Entry---------
So, I won't be updating any pixel art for a little while. It shouldn't be too long, though.

The reason?
Well, as I stated before, I make my pixel art in Jasc Animation Shop. I have the actual PSP /AS program that I got from my sister, but when I switched to my own laptop, I couldn't find it. I needed my Jasc because it's seriously the best program to work in for pixel art, (In MY opinion.) so I downloaded the free trial until I found the actual program on disk. About a week ago my trial ran out. No worries, though - I found the actual program! I uninstalled the free trial and installed the real deal. However, I can't get Jasc to work and I have no idea what's wrong. There seems to be some odd glitch with Jasc AS, or maybe my laptop is rejecting AS. Paint Shop Pro works fine and dandy, but I don't WANT PSP! Just Animation Shop.

I do have Photoshop, but I went into Photoshop recently to pixel, but I have grown so used to and dependent on Animation Shop that I kept confusing myself by trying to use Jasc features that weren't even there. Haha. (You know what I mean.) I went to go click the undo button...but...there IS no actual undo button in Photoshop. Just the Ctrl-z, or the side menu where you drag it into the trash can. I think there is also a drop down option under "edit," as well. :shrug: I can feel all of you photoshop users rolling your eyes at me. I like Photoshop, but I'm not used to it, or extremely experienced in it. I just enjoy working in Jasc for pixel art and I will probably just wait until I get it fixed before I make more pixel art. My sister said she'd take a look at it since she's got dem computah smartz that I dun haev. :)

What's sad is that I was really enjoying pixel art at the moment and started a new piece that I was looking forward to finishing.
I know I could go back to making more traditional stuff, but I'm just not in the mood. Whenever I sit down to draw something with a pencil, nothing decent comes out - I just haven't felt inspired lately. I was a month or two ago, though.

If not. I'll stop being a baby and suck it up for Photoshop. And yes, I know MS paint exists, too. :|

Oh well. Hopefully I will get it fixed soon. :)

</rant>

P.S. Happy belated Valentines Day if you celebrate it...
...and last night's LOST was awesome. Darn tootin'.

.:SO the DArama:.

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 13, 2008, 6:10 PM

Pixel Art Sticker by Abfc
-------Journal Entry---------

DeviantART's new "fair exposure" system/semi new system (Apparently there have been some changes?) has sparked oodles and oodles of classic DA drama on the today page. :)

Yes, I am making a post regarding this. It is a pretty significant change on DA, after all and I find it interestesting - as well as other people's opinions on the matter.

What do you guys think about the new system? Are you happy that new artwork from lesser popular categories such as poetry will have a greater chance to get on the front page instead of say...digital paintings? Are you happy that the same popular fan artists won't wind up there? Or would you rather DA go back to the original system where the most popular work indeed goes up in the popular section as the name "popular" suggests? Maybe you just don't give a crap? Do you have no idea what I am talking abooooout?! D:

If you don't, and are interested and reading about the "fair exposure" system, click this link: mccann.deviantart.com/journal/…
Also, the today page is full of amusing posts. A petition has been started, as well - since a LOT of people despise this new system, apparently.

To be honest, I have customized my front page so I don't usually see he default front page. (Except for DDs, of course - which I honestly have no beef with.)
Also, the front page doesn't look THAT bad. Sure, there are a couple things like a  desktop screen shot and a couple of deviations I won't call out, but I see a lot of lovely deviations up there, too. I don't think think it's as bad as a lot of people say it is. It's not like a total explosion of desktop screen shots and stolen stick men humping the text "your mom" have filled up the front page.  (Although I kind of did have a "wtf" moment when I saw that.)

I guess I don't really mind this new system because like I said, I customized my front page long ago and will continue to keep it customized. I remember seeing a lot of people complaining about how the same old stuff popped up on the front page with the old system, anyway. :shrug:


By the way, who :+fav:s desktop screen shots? o_o


Edit: When I updated this journal I was looking at the new system simply as a viewer, really. There have been many good points made by those against the system for the artists who are trying to get exposed on DA.

.:Favorites and Collections + Question?:.

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 9, 2008, 3:11 PM

Pixel Art Sticker by Abfc
-------Journal Entry---------
Well, it appears as though the new "collections" feature is out of beta testing and ready for  the rest of DeviantART. The feature is pretty nifty, I must say and I had fun sorting all of my favorites into their own separate collections. :nod: Plus, the drop down option is convenient.

However, I seem to be having a small problem and  maybe one of you guys can help? I can sort my favorites easily into their own folders, but when I try to arrange the actual folder and save, the favorites don't save how I arranged them. I was trying to sort my "Features" and it seemed to be working alright. Then I saved - and when I checked, they were all mixed up again. Am I doing something wrong, or is this simply a glitch that will be fixed later on?

I know it isn't big deal, but...even so. xD

Thaaaanks.

A momma shark giving her lil' pup a ride while she tries catching dinner. Aren't sharks neat? I think it matches my icon nicely.

I kind of want a bigger shark banner, but it's hard drawing other types of digital art (aside from pixel art) with a mouse. xP

Jeepers, guys. I haven't updated this since before I got out for Winter Break. Classes don't start up again for awhile. (Hmmm, maybe Feburary?)
Christmas was good.
New Years was....good.
I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday. :nod:

I haven't felt very artistic lately and I didn't enter any of the holiday contests and projects I said I would. I just wouldn't have been able to come with anything I'm afraid. And if I did, it would have most likely been half effort crap. I don't know how much pixel art I'll be making in the near future as I would like to start creating more traditional art. I posted a sketch in m scraps as some of you saw, but I'd really like to actually...FINISH something. I never seem to finish anything I start making when it comes to my traditional art. Ha.

I need to get back into the swing of things here. I used to never log out of DA when I was online. Sorry for not commenting as much on art. I have a few older deviations form some of you that I have been saving for comments, but I just haven't gotten around to it. I'm sure you all understand.

Thanks to everyone who has been commenting and :+fav:ing while I've been MIA. I cannot ever say enough how much I appreciate my watchers and the support, feedback and comments you give me  - especially when I find myself frustrated with mt art. I <3 you guys!

More art sooooooon. 8D

I have been working a great deal on my final art project for my digital art class and I think I am finally heading in a good direction. It took me forever to get into it and I just want to keep working on it. Unfortunately, I have other non-art related projects to do that are due before my art project, so I have to force myself to top working on it so I can get the rest done. Haha

Anyway, I am actually looking forward to sharing them with you guys (At least, the one I am working on now) after I turn them in. It's supposed to be a series of pieces and I decided to do each piece on a fable or fairy tale - all in illustrator.
I'd really like to start getting into vector art a lot more.

---

Onto other news:
When the semester comes to an complete close, I plan on finishing the last two requests that I have been putting off. (Man, I'm sorry, guys. You know who you are.)
I'd also like to to make some Christmas presents (Or Chanukah presents, or just...presents. xD) to some of my awesome watchers/friends.

I just cannot believe it's December already. I know everyone says that about every month, but really, it's almost 2008. I have a hard time remembering what I did early in 2007. :lol:

I really need to stop typing here and start finishing my paper. Oye.

*Runs off to add to her "to do" list first*

So earlier I went into the kitchen and heard this rustling noise under the oven. I heard something being rolled around under there and I even heard some chewing on plastic. At first I thought, "Great...Pinky is under the oven causing some ruckus." (Pinky is my kitty) You know, sometimes how cats like to gnaw on plastic if they get a hold of it? >< She has never been under the stove so I thought that she may be stuck. I started shaking some food to lure her out and started saying "wet food" because she loves wet food and knows what those words mean. The rustling continued and I wasn't hearing any meows so I banged on the side of the stove to see if I could get her out to no avail. I started shaking the food again and I heard the little bell on her collar and then saw her...in the hallway - half awake from sleeping. o_o

Pinky wasn't the one under the stove chewing and rolling around objects. o_o
I think it may be a mouse...or a rat. I am thinking rat because it didn't sound small.
How. nasty. is. that?

Then I saw Pinky staring under the stove, so now she knows something is under there - not like she'll CATCH it or anything. She is a tiny lil' one and it would probably freak her out. (She got scared of a bird outside. xD)

I guess it came in here because it's winter outside. Mice and rats don't scare me, or anything. I used to have two domesticated rats and they're really sweet animals, but I don't like the mice and rats that come inside from nature. (lol @ wording) I guess I'm more paranoid from the lime disease they carry. I honestly wouldn't care if there was a mouse/rat in my house ifnone of them carried diseases. xP

.:Contest + Busy November:.

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 14, 2007, 12:27 PM

I haven't had a lot of time, nor the motivation to do anything artistic lately. Most of my art time goes towards finishing my art projects for my art class. D= I plan on posting some of them eventually - most likely when the semester is over and I get my grades for them. They are all completely different styles than I usually do, so it might be interesting to see for some.

A couple more weeks of class left before the Winter break. I'm already tired and ready to just start the Spring semester. This semester hasn't been the best. I actually don't look forward to going to class like I usually do - but I'm not here to complain, so I shall move on. ;)

Anyway, I HAVE started a little contest entry for HannahChapman found here: chop-stix.deviantart.com/journ…
Thanks to the lovely MerryMeeper for bringing it to my attention. Now I bring it to your attention for anyone who might be interested in participating in a contest around festive cat-cats.

So check it out and enter if you please. :)

Yay! I just got the book I am America: (and so can you!)
I can't wait to start reading it. I skimmed through it a bit earlier and saw a lot of amusing little things. :nod:

Has anyone read this yet? Or plan on doing so?

I decided to make an F.A.Q. for the questions I have been getting often. Feel free to read it here: infinitiesend.deviantart.com/j…

If you have any question you'd like to see up there, just ask me in my post and I'll put it up. :nod:
I'd rather they be more art related and technical questions instead of personal. Not that I mind, but I'm sure most people couldn't care less. (=
