Part 2: The Nurse who Loved Me
Undertale really fucked me up. -spoilers obviouslySo I finished my second play-through of Undertale last night. Shit was an emotional roller-coaster. I mean, literally. It's very rare for something to illicit and emotional response from me the way Undertale has. And really I just want to talk about it. I'm going to do it here because r/undertale is full of meanies who like the downvote button too much and the wiki chat is full of nothing but roleplay.
So, here we go.
When I started playing, I instantly connected with Toriel. The one thing I noticed about the game was that all the characters felt incredibly real, despite the 8-bit sprites. It was just something about Toriel's actions and language that really connected with me. Maybe it's because I love that whole child-like innocence and motherly love kind of stuff. I had a bad childhood so that could explain it, but I'm not here to talk about that.
Anyway, I was incredibly sad when the tutorial ended and I had to leave Toriel. I didn't want to. I
Streaming [ended]My make-up stream for saturday is starting in about 15 minutes (5:45 PM CST) and is set to run until 9 pm CST. I would've done it yesterday but I layed down for a nap at 4 and slept for 16 straight hours.
The stream starts at 5:45 to allow joiners to cxome in and the drawing starts at 6. I'm looking to finish my FLuttershy picture and if I don't it will most likely be finished by the next stream.
If you like digitally painted ponies, stoner metal, and hippy jam bands then this is the stream for you!
Streaming [Ended]Doing an Art Stream on Picarto, coloring my latest drawing.
See you there
EDIT: Stream is over, only 1 person showed up, but that kinda sucks for everypony else because it was SorcerusHorserus and we talked about stoner rock and how to draw eyes.
Ask Lonershy HiatusThis isn't an announcement, more so an update on why I haven't updates my ask blog Ask Lonershy in a few months.
I was in talks with EqD about getting the blog featured on their tumblr spotlight and they said the b log was cleared to go up, I'd just need a few pages of content first. That's like 75 posts, and I didn't want to rush the blog with an influx of sub-par posts so I decided to take a break from the blog to practice my drawing.
In the meantime I'm exploring possible story archs, so once I feel satisfied with my skills I will resume the blog and skew it into a more story-driven ask blog.
Just felt like keeping you guys updated.
I'm considering opening up commissions.I ran into problems during my room refurnishing and kinda blew my budget.
I'm considering opening commissions to remedy that, as well as give me some extra practice for home and school drawing. The only problem is I don't know if I'm ready yet. I'm decent enough at sketching, coloring, and shading. The only problem is I'm not up to snuff with the painterly style I want to do yet; also I've never done commissions before.
I don't know. What do you guys think? You've all seen my art and my quick improvements, do you think I'm ready to do commissions? Maybe if I just limit it to sketches and simple coloring?
I've never done this before so I could use some advice.
Being an artist with no audience is arduous.I find I'm alternating between either manic optimism when working onj my own stuff and soul-crushing pessimism when comparing myself to other artists I'm in contact or want to emulate.
I've been told my biggest problem is nself discouragement, but without an audience to even create an echo chamber all I have is my own voice telling me I'm the best writer ever one minute and that I'll never ever get where I'm going the next.
Where does this ride end? I want to get off.
Our Day in Disdain: Chapter 6 TeaserOne, Two, skip a few, here's the teaser for chapter 6. Hopefully it's long enough to make up for the past three chapters:
The in-patient ward was alive with sound; a symphony of machine clicks and beeps, wheezes and susurrations of air ventilators. The halls were filled with such sounds.
Being a small community hospital, Ponyville Hospital didn’t have very many wards, so many of the adult surgery patients were mixed in with the patients that would normally be housed in Intensive Care. But since that Ponyville Hospital was no bigger than the hotel building it converted from, and because the closest hospital was the large teaching hospital in Manehattan, it didn’t have the resources for a separate ICU ward or the time available to send patients to a more specialized hospital; thus, the patients were mixed into a single ward. Resulting in a crescendo of noise that could rattle the brain of anypony who listened for

Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:
~ TIPS ~
Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar
[OPEN] COMMISSION SLOTSA COUNTDOWN TIMER TO OPENING MY COMMISSIONS
I hope you all are doing well
I'm opening a few commissions slots right now. But as I promised to some of you, they all are "first come - first serve slots". Also, commissioners would be added to my "To-do list" in the order they took the slot, which means that the one who took the slot first would get his order finished first. This time it'll take me from one to four weeks to finish your commission (depends on your number on my "To-do list"). It might take longer as my schedule is unstable ^_^' But if I need a lot of extra time I will definitely tell you.
YOU CAN ONLY TAKE A SLOT WHEN THE TITLE OF THIS JOURNAL SAYS "OPEN"
NOTICE - 1: One slot - one drawing
16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they

Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to
Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
