VANS WARPED TOUR - HOUSTON, TXHi, I just got back from THE TIME OF MY LIFE
I flew to Houston on Saturday. After all these years of interacting online, I FINALLY got to meet Jesse and Maria!!! I spent all of Warped Tour on Sunday with them—plus Maria's sister. I got to see my favorite bands ever: Motionless In White and 3OH!3, as well as Bowling For Soup, Simple Plan, Harm's Way, Farewell Winters, We The Kings, and Palaye Royale. I moshed and nearly died at Motionless In White's performance, and I crowdsurfed for 5 seconds on 3OH!3's last song. I got so close to the stage for both of them!
We got rained on at noon so intensely that everyone had to evacuate, but eventually it cleared up, and the show went on. Just a bit delayed.
But it was amazing. What a way to spend my first concert experience. After that, we all had dinner and Apple had just flown back from being in Cali
Thank youSo, I'm settled in my apartment now.
I was supposed to move on December 30th, but due to some things that were out of my hands, it was pushed to January 2nd. But other than my internet, everything carried out pretty smoothly. I've been trying to get internet set up since I got in, but there were also some complications with that, which should be solved tomorrow. I'm currently using Starbucks Wi-Fi to post this.
Everything here is great and really close-by. I'm walking distance from a strip of restaurants and services, a short drive away from downtown, and have access to good-priced gas right outside my apartment. I'm attempting to go back to college too, which is just a 7 minute drive away. My apartment is limited-access, with two gated areas for entry/exit which close whenever the office inside closes. There are two pools, two laundry areas, a gym, a clubhouse (in progress), areas for barbecue (also in progress, just an outdoor hangout area for now), and a lake in the center of everyt
Moving / Christmas Wishlist / HelpHey, I'm moving out and living alone in one month and would appreciate some help with some household items this Christmas. I have a list here on Amazon where you can purchase from and have items get to me safely. Priorities are in the food gift cards, but I am immensely grateful for everything.
[ Wish List ]
If you want to send me items that you already own from this list, or other things you think I might need, that's awesome too. Private message me about it.
You may donate any amount of money through Ko-Fi or PayPal, as I am also saving up for a used car, as well as groceries, rent, and hopefully therapy again.
Thank you so much for reading this and for your support. I'll post some items for sale soon as well. Early Merry Christmas wishes to you all, and happy holidays.
Honest Opinions About My ArtI saw a mutual do this, and apparently it's a popular journal entry, but I haven't seen any other than theirs.
But that doesn't matter, here we go
My digital art will be the main focus of this journal.
Some example pieces:
- I like the edges
- My scenic background attempts are nothing special. They always look slapped on, like I just wing it every time.
- I don't practice enough expressions. Facial expression, body expression... it feels faint. Nothing strong anywhere.
- Weak anatomy. Yeah I know the basic components of a body, but there just isn't any anatomy study.
- Colors. I have never studied color theory, and it shows. And if you think I used good colors on a drawing, I swear it's because I put a color filter over it.
Things to work on:
- Actually study something for once.
- Settle on an effective way to draw eyes.
- Dynamic exp

I say fuck all the rules just let me answer the questions for I want to talk about myself
1. what do you normally do with your friends? (internet friends count!)
This is so sad I hardly do anything with my friends and I feel bad about it. We hang out one or two times a month, go to the mall or someone's house, drive around, eat food, etc.
2. who do you talk to most on deviantART?
I don't really talk to anyone on deviantArt directly, but I do talk to dA users pigsnoutemoji, kittybf, and pastIife in a text group chat sometimes and meet up on occasion, as I briefly mentioned previously.
3. u got any fave jewelry???
Nah... I have interests in face piercings (nose and eyebrow, specifically), but I'm binch when it comes to physical pain (and people watching me experiencing physical pain) so nothing yet. I doubt I'd look as good in them anyway.
4. QUICK!! PICK A NU
LIT, Thomas Was Alone, DetentionI bought a new-ish laptop offa Craigslist Saturday and scooped up a day's work of Steam summer sale video games a few days prior, and finished those three games listed in the title within the two days that I had said laptop. Really good stuff, I absolutely loved them. I haven't truly played video games in years so it was really refreshing. Feel free to recommend any games to me since the sale lasts for another day or two.
My bosses want me to start working for them full-time soon, as they're planning to expand the business. For those who do not know: I repair iPhones, as well as help with organizing their inventory. Not sure what expanding will entail, but I sure hope it means a new building with air conditioning, an official company and name instead of just a service offered on Craigslist, some kind of healthcare, and an actual paycheck (I'm currently just handed cash at the end of my shift). That could all be wishful thinking, but I hope to find out all the details tomorrow. All I kn
-My recent journals have been regarding commissions and whatnot. That's great and fine, but I've always liked the comfort of deviantArt journals to be able to use as a traditional journal to record thoughts. I don't want to keep this as a constant habit because being able to unload thoughts feels better released in large occasional chunks rather than constant small thoughts. I think statuses are better for the latter, but I utilize Twitter instead of those.
There isn't much purpose to this journal, and no there isn't some kind of art freebie hidden within the mess that some artists like to do (which is not a bad idea or anything), it's just to let loose and open up and reach the surface for a gasp of air.
So I guess I'll begin.
I've lost touch with a large amount of friends, not as much online ones lost as I have lost the ones I grew up physically around. And I'm fully aware what happened, I won't deny that we stopped talking due to no longer being in high school with them, or that I ne
I said hey, what's goin' onI know throughout this year, I've been infrequent with updates and art and the like, but that's just because life does that. Stuff gets in the way. But I do feel comfortable sharing what has happened recently for the sake of being aware if you're interested! I only really post life stuff on deviantArt for some reason... I think I like the layout of it or something.
This week, I began my first semester of college. I'm going to a community college in my city, and I am aware how strange that is, I know. Everyone I talk to on here goes straight to art school immediately after high school. Which is great, intimidates me, but also makes me happy that it's possible for you all to do so. I'm just getting general education for now because I'll be real: I don't really know what I want to do!
I know graphic design is what people online (as well as my local friends, family, whatever) believe is my sole passion, but that's not entirely true. I enjoy many things, drawing is just the one that has bee

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

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:
