I'm going through with it. Murk convinced me. if he's able to give up that much-coveted Senior membership to change accounts, then i can give up my account for my new one.

If you're not already watching :icontherainbowsquid:, please do so :)

i'll come back to this account on occasion to check up on any messages, etc. but all art from this point on will be put on the new account.
  • Watching: Flapjack, lol
  • Drinking: Vanilla Coke
i'm not switching accounts, after all.
i really hate this username. like, hate it with a burning passion. but i've been here almost 5 years, and it would just be too much of a hassle to rejoin all my groups, re-watch everyone, and all that.

plus, after i started submitting my works to the groups, i've gotten a mad spike in pageviews and faves, and i rather like that :)


i got a Piczo account yesterday :) i like the site so far... the fully customizable site pages are nice.
here, check mine out, and if you have an account, add me, and i'll add back :D
(you can get to my blog and other site page from there :) and i designed both site pages myself :D

Was told about it by: :iconegyptianruin:

THE BASICS: write a Christmas/Holiday wish list. It can be any 10 wishes you'd like to have granted, no matter what they are. Possible or seemingly impossible. People look and grant the wishes if they can. It's not about "OMFG PRESENTS", it's about making someone else's holiday a little brighter by giving.


** Make a post in your journal. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

** If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you. In this case, you can always just note someone on dA for the sake of privacy.

** Make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your journal, so that others can join in and participate to spread the holiday joy!


** Surf this forum (… ) and browse the lists. Here's the important part:

** If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

** You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

:holly: It's the season for fellow deviants to come together and share some love, and it truly doesn't take much work at all. Come on and make your own wishlist and post it in the forum (… ) and see what happens-- you never know what might be granted.

My Wishlist:

1. A necklace/cell phone charm/ring/etc. of a SquidBunny! (the squid-thing in this:… )

2. A dA subscription! pleeease...?

3. Fan Art of my St. Jimmy! (… )

4. Sneasel Stuff! It's my favorite pokemon :love: (ooh! draw a pic of St. Jimmy as a pokemon trainer with a Sneasel! :love::excited:)

5. The full series of the anime "Sketchbook ~Full Colors~" all nice and neat for me to download as a set, so i can stop scouring the internet for episodes ^^;

6. sculpey clay (or whatever it is that clay artisans use on here), earring backs, charm straps, etc... generally, stuff so i can start making and selling my own jewelery :meow:

7. New sketchbooks :D i'm ALWAYS drawing, even if i don't post much, so i burn through sketchbooks pretty quick :meow:

8. Slice-of-life/school/romance/general shoujo manga books. a partial-secret of mine: i LOVE those girly romantic mangas :love: shonen-ai, shoujo-ai, or... whatever the word is for straight manga :)

9. A Hot Topic gift card :XD: no, really... i love the clothes and jewelery they sell, but i can't afford any of it... :(

10. An evil monkey in a tuxedo who carries a laser gun and has been taught to do my bidding :evillaugh:


pleasepleaseplease try to grant my wishes!
and if you make a wishlist, post the link here so i can see it! :D

Sparky LIVES!

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 27, 2009, 6:26 AM
okay, so, in case you didn't know, Sparky is the name of my worn-out tablet i've been using.
i was gonna get a new one, since Sparky's pressure-sensitivity didn't work, but some nice person here on dA was kind enough to tell me the type of tablet Sparky is (he belonged to 5 other people before me, and his label wore off over time), and direct me to the drivers for it. he works AWESOMELY now :la:
well, his eraser doesn't want to work, but i can just use the eraser button for that :shrug:

anyway, i'm not getting my bamboo fun anymore. my own decision. instead of mom spending $200 on the tablet, i told her to spend half that and just get me a new video game or two (i'm getting Super Paper Mario :woohoo:)


also, how did everyone's Thanksgiving go?
our turkey exploded, but other than that, it went well :)
my granddad charlie made the turkey at their house, and were gonna bring it to our house, cuz mom made everything else. but when they went to bring it over, the top shelf fell out of the cart they were carrying it in, and it crashed to the bottom and broke. none of it fell out of the cart though :) and it still tasted awesome, so all in all, it was just a fun time :D

anyway, there was no drama, or fighting, or any real major issues for the first year ever. ikt was nice, it felt like a real thanksgiving :) kori and arianna (my sister and stepsister) played together while we all talked and ate.
and Robbie helped cook :D
It was a good day.

how did your thanksgivings go? :la:

and have a fun black friday! :XD: i'm not going shopping today for anything!

i'm mostly looking for an excuse to play with the free journal skins while they're around :giggle:
god, i love rainbows :D anyway...
sorry about the lack of art... i'll start posting more soon. i just need to get motivated :shakefist:

I'm gonna start going on about my personal problems now. just warning you.
I'm starting to think that nobody likes me except my family and Robbie... nobody ever wants to go do anything with me, but they go out of the way to go out with their other friends. i feel like i'm not actually liked, i'm just tolerated. i'm not sure what i have to do to make people like me...
what should i do?

... i'll make a happier journal tthis afternoon or something. after school, maybe. i just wanted to ask for opinions.

is someone featuring me, and just didn't tell me about it? because it's not even for my stamps like it usually is... my St. Jimmy art seems to be getting noticed today...
eh, it's weird, but it's recognition for me, so i'm happy! :D

i need to submit something soon :dizzy:

also, speaking of completely unrelated things, i downloaded Scribblenauts onto my computer a few days ago... IT IS EPIC.
everyone needs to play this game. srsly. it's so much fun.....
  • Listening to: ICP - Alley Rat
  • Drinking: coke
...because i need to ramble on. it cheers me up.

if you only care about my art, and not me as a person, i would only bother reading the first bit of this.


I'm working on a proper comic (with a continuous story and everything!) of my American Idiot (and possibly 21CB, later)

i'll link to the site i'm posting it on once i get it set up and have a few comics there :)


so... in case you haven't been paying any attention to my 'listening to' things on my journals, i've been getting really hardcore into ICP (insane clown posse) here lately.

a lot of people hate them (they've even been pushing themselves as 'the most hated band in the world' recently) but they're pretty awesome, i think :D
if anyone else here likes 'em, i have the link to download the new album (with all 3 bonus tracks and all 3 intros).


school's started again.
i've been drawing in almost every class. i might post some of my sketches up here (they're mostly St. Jimmy :meow: )
i'm also in 3 classes i love this semester: psychology, painting, and pottery :D
Psychology's a lot more fun than i thought it would be. Pottery's fun, too, but i'm not very good at it ^^;


I went with Robbie (that'd be my boyfriend) to his friend's place on monday... we got completely fucked up, it was great :D
we had 4 bowls and a blunt (for my younger friends, that's stoner talk, don't worry about it until you're at least 16), and half a liter of tequila, along with a bottle and a half of vodka (:bleh: i hate vodka.).
also, i had beer for the first time. it is disgusting.
we stayed up till about 3 or 4, then me and robbie passed out on their couch :D
it was an awesome night. i'd never been that messed up before...


i'm going to a concert Saturday :D
Shinedown, Tantric, Chevelle, and a few other bands are playing. I'm looking forward to shinedown, i love them :D
Robbie's sister got mine and his ticket, and Robbie's getting his brother's ticket... and my best friend in the world is supposed to be there, too, if she can get a ticket...

also, i'm 18 now, so i get to crowdsurf for the first time at this concert :D (mom wouldn't let me crowdsurf when i was younger...)


i should really be sleeping right now... i have to get up for school in 4 hours...
eh, whatever. i'll sleep during English :P

i'll answer all my comments tomorrow, probably...

I'm trying to do more design projects, so i would love it if you, my darling watchers, would give me some ideas :D

THESE ARE NOT REQUESTS. If i like the idea, i'll make a design for it. if not, i won't. simple as that =p

try to keep them music-oriented, if possible, please :)

:bulletred: what i mean by 'design projects' :bulletred:

:bulletblack: Made-Up concert/tour/show/etc. posters ((example: "Bombfest", a summer punk tour featuring 30 bands, including Green Day, Billy Talent, and The Offspring *If this were a real tour, i would kill people just to get a ticket.*))

:bulletblack: Band logos (real or made-up is fine) ((For real bands, if i don't know them, a link to their site would be lovely :) for made-up, a name and genre will do nicely :D))

:bulletblack: Album arts (real bands and songs only) ((name a band AND a song, please :) ))

i'll probably be doing projects on my own, too, but i like getting suggestions :icontinfoilhatplx:
  • Watching: Flapjack
  • Drinking: coffee
really, what's the dArama about? it's annoying.

let me explain for the clueless.

dA has added a new feature that allows people to easily link to artists' deviations, as well as new buttons that allow people to automatically post links to them on facebook, twitter, reddit, and digg.
this upsets people for some reason.

some are shouting "ART THEFT", when this is CLEARLY not the case, as these links GO DIRECTLY TO THE ARTIST'S SUBMISSION PAGE.
and others are just upset due to the lack of a 'disable sharing' feature.… read this. disabling the sharing is a bad idea.

now, will someone explain to me the issue with people thinking someone's art is pretty and putting the link to it on facebook? even if there aren't that many artists on those sites, you don't have to be an artist to think someone's art is pretty, right? it's free exposure, so people should STOP BITCHING.
