Featuring (with my own variant)Gonna try this, but I'm gonna add my own variant to this.
-The first 9 people to comment on this journal will get featured.
-I will choose between 3 to 5 deviations from their gallery, and tell why I like them.
-If you comment, please copy a blank version of this journal on your own page and feature me in the first slot.
^^^You need to do this one, pals, or you won't be featured here.^^^
-The idea is to spread art around, not to get free features.

Things to do beside collegeAbout a month ago I started college. Cool friends have been made after one week of the small world feels, and I'm doing alright so far. Well, that last part isn't exactly true.
I'll be honest, I thought I could do a lot of my own things while studying animation in college. Turns out that the opposite is true and that I have LESS time. I'm restricting myself to doing personal work on weekends, which is busy enough at home. The kid inside me is complaining about two things:
I haven't escaped essay writing and
3D is a bitch to work with.So yeah, college is a priority right now, and some of the things I promised to get done have been pushed aside. However, that doesn't mean I won't do these things. It'll just take time.
That being said, here's my progress on personal work that's vaguely worded:
I'm redoing part of a team project, and I've only got a few weekends to work on it.I'm not sure if I can pump out a really good animation for an art trade, but then again, I'm doing it because I can
GO CHECK THIS COLLAB I DID!This is a collaboration with and by :iconEmily071: (Emily071), where I did the line art and Emily coloured it in. Since she initiated the collab, it's on her dA.
Here it is:
Thoughts Pre-HSC Exams: Why?Prediction: F**k English, I may fail. General Maths, gonna perform well. IPT and Music, nyeh. Physics, I can up my game.
Why didn't I spend the three weeks in the holidays studying?
Why did I blow the chance to do better?
Why am I set up to believe in Murphy's Law: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong?
Why can't I appreciate the people who care for me no matter what happens?
Why can't I shake the feeling that things will go wrong, no matter what?
Why am I not confident?
Why am I worried that my dad and one of my older cousins will be disappointed in me?
Why tell us our ranks are important, if you tell us they don't?
Why bother telling us that our ranks don't matter too much, when you focus more on why they do?
Why give us this contradictory loop of thought?
Why am I even worried, even though I know I'm doing all this for myself?
Well, whatever I do in those exams, I'll do myself, whether I succeed, or fail. Whatever success means.
50 Watchers: A comparison50 people. On a DeviantArt scale it's not much. But at my local level, it is.
If all 50 people came over for a party, all 50 would just have enough walking space inside and outside the house, twice as many as we had at one party at home.
At school, there are only 32 seats for all the students to sit in. We would need 2 classrooms to provide seats for you. But, we can all fit inside standing up.
50 people is a little more than a quarter the size of all of Year 12.
50 people is, in real life, a bit bigger than what I'm used to.
Discord? Exams? Art? Job?Sometimes I regret deleting Discord. Even though it's until exams are over (at the end of the month), I made some good friends there, and I can't talk to them until the month is over.
And speaking of exams, I've done nothing to study for it. I told myself I would, and I didn't deliver. Every time I pick up the pen, I can't handle it and just go off and do my own thing. I promised people I would, and I didn't. More importantly, I'm letting myself down. I don't know if it's too late. People are telling me my rank is important. Those same people tell me it's not. Who or what the fuck do I believe? Maybe it's not something I'll be worrying about later and then I can shelve this as cringe-worthy shit, but right now it's shaking me.
Also, it's cruel that a lot of art stuff that I genuinely want to do is done during this time. I really wanted to do Jazza's animation challenge. I really wanted to do Inktober. And I asked to be part of an art competition. I'm gonna have to drop it. Plus I have
is the person I stole this journal idea from. Man, it's like there's this long-lasting chain of thefts going on here.
Anyway, the rules are simple:
Comment on the journal if you want me to feature your artwork.
I sneak into your gallery and find four artworks I like.
I comment about them.
Then I'll kindly pass this journal onto you and you repeat steps 2 and 3 for my artworks.
A bit of a note: I'm sorry if I start to talk about myself when I feature your art. It's hard to talk about artworks without using my own skills as a reference point.
Anyways, onto the featurings!
Okay, right off the bat, your character is damn great! So far, my idea of "costuming" and fashion's only one recognisable outfit per person, and the designs are fairly simple. Looking at this, however, you've got a grasp on the sorts of clothes one would wear depending on the

I'm Back (for a fleeting moment)That was an Olan Rogers reference.
Hey guys, or whoever will actually see this. There are certain people I hope will see this.
I graduated high school now! Well, the grade had a graduation ceremony. I still have final exams October 16-30 (which is why I deleted Discord for the time being) and I technically don't graduate until November 10, where I sign some forms, then I'm officially "cleared". Then there's the Year 12 Formal (Prom for any Americans) on November 15. Suit's all sorted out, though, no major spending, since I got a nice-looking blazer and shirt already.
Anyway, I've been studying for my final exams, or at least I've been trying to. It's hard not to get distracted by my brother playing Fallout 4 and pointing out mistakes he's making, even though I don't play it myself. I've also been applying for universities and colleges (passed the phone interview for one college, I will check more), and been applying for Casual Christmas jobs at Mum's request.
So I've been very quiet he
I hate manga and anime.Recently, someone told me that she likes Anime and Manga because they are avenues for limitless imagination, and without rules.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing, because my own experience is utterly opposite: Anime and Manga are quite possibly the least creative, most rule-infested genre of art. I can speak with some authority on this subject because I've lived in Japan (the home of anime and manga) for seven years.
In fact, I OWN some rulebooks about manga and anime, despite avoiding that genre with the same dedication with which a diabetic avoids sugar. I've also watched interviews with manga artists as they discuss the rules of manga/anime, and hung out on a Manga-for-artists website before discovering DeviantArt.
Consider the following rule set, and ask yourself a) is it true? b) what sort of stifling rulebook and lifestyle forced these artists to stay well within the rules, only trying to break away from the pack by taking the rules of cuteness, sexiness, violence, and good-v

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!

July Commissions!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 abandoned.
My commissions are always open, I just ask you to be patient because I work on them as ideas come by. I try to finish them as fast as I can but I give priority to quality over speed.
Those interested please read this:
