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

Design contest! (DL. Nov.10th)Another contest. ^^ Pretty lenient and plenty to choose from so you don't feel restricted!
It's straight forward.. design anything from the links/info below!
I'll try to keep the journal short in hope people will actually ready it thoroughly unlike my other events. ;c
First things first!
Your art level does not matter, this is for creativity! Let your heart burst with imagination!^ That said, if you feel comfortable about it, you may use a base - as long as the base grants permissions for this sort of use.^ Bases are accepted--especially if used for just outfits/armours or weapons.^Digital AND traditional, pixel, any! are all welcome.
You can submit up to 2 character and 2 outfit/weapons/etc designs from each link, but keep in mind, only 1 of your submissions can win.^ To clarify. you only "need" to give one entry. but you're allowed a total of four.
Obviously, don't copy/trace/steal and all that.
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...
Last journal was so rushed and poorly worded oh god it's embarrasing when I look back at it- so I'll write updates over it xD
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!
