Holy Party Hats Batman!Wow. thank you EVERYONE for so many happy-birthday messages.
Just want you to know that it hits home. It touches me very deeply.
I'm kind of stunned right now thinking about this whole internet thing. How, way long ago this 2 year old kid first picked up a pencil and scribbled some circles on the back of a piece of discarded assignment-paper my dad brought home from the school where he worked as a teacher. How over those awkward adolescent years when at times I hated my talent for drawing because I thought that was the only thing of value people saw in me and I didn't think it was valuable at all. But for some reason I could never quit. Through my college years when I finally grabbed hold of a dream, to be a professional artist. The frustration of seeing how far I had to go in skill and experience. And on then till today.
Life's still a struggle. I still always wish I were better at my art. Wish things were more stable and sustaining. Wish I had more time. But I figure we're all in tha

Art I like #2:iconMefitica:
The Italian artist Mefitica has a playful and fluid sense of line that I find very appealing. Her technique reminds me of Audrey Kawasaki but her character and style is all her own. Meftica's work is most compelling when her figures are simplified to their geometric essence. This gives them a very intensional, designed feeling, almost like they are icons. In her best pieces there lives a sense of delicate confidence.
Art I like #1I'd like to call attention to an artist I just came across:
Within the vast oceanic depths of anime art on deviantart, Yokko caught my eye. Just look at her compositions, amazing use of lush color and well designed shape making and I think you'll see why. Add to this unusual perspectives and incredible draughtmanship and you have someone you should be watching. Her compositions are complex and busy but through use of contrasting colors and value (that is, lights and darks) she manages to keep them from being disorienting or feeling messy- truly impressive.
I'm definitely inspired by her work. Check it out:
Change of plans...I was surprised find that I got some push back on my idea to buying commenters a premium account. After some thought about how I could give something back to the DA community I've decided to change directions- I can be a bit impulsive.
A few people requested more painting tips. I am going to make a goal to get more of those out. Also I'm going to try to highlight other artists in Journal entries and explain what I like about them. Hope these things can be helpful!

Well, i hope you like it
My Opinion On My YouTube/DeviantART FanbaseYeah, uh..it's not that bad, first of all. Sure, most of my YT fans are actually nice to me.
But when it comes to character redesigns, title changes, and name changes?? Hohohoho, some of them can even leave me.
Does it piss me off? No. Does it sadden me? No. Does it make me happy? Yes. They can do what they want, I don't really give a shit.
It's called having opinions, and I respect that. But don't fucking bash me into animating/drawing something I don't want to draw/animate anymore.
Let me do what I want. I'm not going to do what you want anymore because, honestly? I'm not listening to young triggered children anymore. I'm getting older, and it's time for me to face it.
This entire summer was literally just me going through so many character development phases, and some kids leaving me doesn't bother me at all lmao.
But here is way different. I can express myself more, I can share my opinions on certain things, I can talk to my fans, and I can get less pissed off here.
Updates~First of all, thanks everyone for your help ;w;
Thank you for your donations, thanks for sharing the journal, thanks for caring, and for your kind words too...

Fortunately, everything went well with the surgery. We had help from our family too and could pay the hospitalization and surgery in time. My dad is now resting and recovering at my sister's house, while mom is taking care of him. Due to our circumstances I will be working to bring some money and also pay the house... pfft I finally feel like an adult xD it sucks... jkjk
It was an exhausting week at the hospital, but finally "I'm back" kind of? I will use a day every week to answer your messages and maybe leave an update. Right now, they're a lot for me to answer right away. Thanks a lot to my commissioners for being SO patient with little me specially you Beelze idk if you're reading but hgng I'm thankfu
Happy 15th Birthday!In April I wrote a post reflecting on my 15 years at DeviantArt, since the project began in April of 2000 and was launched to the public on August 7th. I went back and re-read what I wrote, and wow, speaking of audacious I'm pretty hardcore in this post. I write from my heart sometimes and then I hit post and that's that. So for our official 15th Birthday I wanted to re-share a link to that post:
And then today, I wrote this reflection for you as a toast & thanks for all the llamas:
Happy 15th Birthday DeviantArt! We are evolving, and soon we will be able to share exactly how you can be a part of our transformation, ensuring that the DeviantArt we all love grows stronger in supporting the visual & written arts for 15 more years to come!

Some ideas was really nice, like "everyone be happy somehow", I understand the feeling and this is pretty adorable to wish!
But this as well other topics was the answer of many many people >w<' so I tried to focus in more original answers~
And to be honest, it's beautiful to see how many people care about:
• Everyone respect each other life choices;
• People shouldn't hurt animals/humans/Earth;
• Basic care to everyone - no poverty;
And much more topics that are about human kindness! Warms up my heart to see how much you guys care about others!

Collective Feature #21UPDATES:
Not much news to share, it's been a quiet week. Tyler is over in California for training or whatever for a couple of months. Fingers crossed they'll grant him leave in July.
The weather is finally acting more like spring, with 60 degree days and sunshine, so hopefully the cold weather is done for.
I am still looking for character sheets for my characters from the story I want to continue. Note me if you know anyone who can
The same "rules" apply as they did last time. Throughout every photography category in my favorites, I will choose 10 entries (usually the first 10 that show up, or I begin where I left off) that'll be featured. With every category, I keep a record of who is featured, that way no name gets repeated twice in one category. Only one entry per category.
If you have any specific photo that fits into one of the categories that you want to be featured (yours or someone else's), pleas
