...There was no need to combine those words.
But I did it anyway.
:bademoticon:


Hark! - the promised feature journal, in which I struggled to showcase some of my longtime (and newer! :heart:) friends' work with just a few pieces. I started with five works each but figured hey - in denying myself and picking just three, maybe readers would feel denied, too, and all the more anxious to get up in those galleries and see more of their beautiful work.

And that's really what I want the readers of this journal to do, because my friends deserve it. They have supported and inspired me, some of them for years now. Sharing a few of their brilliant works in the hope you might find inspiration in them, too, is the least I can do for people as marvelous as them. It's not much, but I hope it's alright, you guys ;u; :heart: Love you and look forward to 2016!

So, Shinkami, aka Karen, aka the loveliest soul ever, left her DA account up on my computer so I just wanted to pop in and say a few words about my best friend. Karen, you are such a compassionate friend, an amazing talent, and you deserve the best life has to offer. You helped me out when I needed someone and you always encourage me to embrace the crazy stories and characters in my head. Your babes are amazing, sometimes I forget they aren't real, and I can't wait to play Essence and touch some butt, I mean interact with your wonderful, floofy haired children. (I might save Mak for last since he's my fave. ;) Don't tell the others.) Never give up on your dreams and keep on keeping on! I look forward to a lot more frienshipping with you!

I don't usually like sharing things of a personal nature, but this article is an exception as it really resonated with my own struggles and fears. I wanted to share it and raise awareness on an issue I've always hesitated to broach myself in fear of seeming like I was whining or fishing for pity - but support is honestly the best thing anyone with N can receive. I'm so thankful for the kindness I've received on- and offline; whether or not it was regarding N, having friends who genuinely care has taken me far when facing something that can make you feel so alone.

No, really, though. I wanted to sell some old games for cheap and see if you guys were interested. Just note me if anything screams at you and we can work out paypal or amazon listing or SOMETHING idk. How would you do it? Like. Without you having to give me your address and you just imagining me not actually mailing you the game but popping through your door to raid your fridge. UGH HELP ME but yeah. I'll definitely be reasonable and we can haggle. All of these are like new and come in the box with most if not all the original manuals (because I'm one of those weird kids that actually took good care of my games. probably because they were my life :iconpapmingplz:)

seeing as I've disappeared for the past few months I figured it was time to rear my ugly big moderately egg-shaped head again ouo

I've wanted to write an update journal for a while, but every time I sit down, I take so long to write it that I'm eventually "oh snap I should be writing Essence/homeworking/petting annoying cat so he will go away and stop drooling on my keyboard."

I talked about going to see the sleep doctor in June and actually had my sleep study at the end of August (lol yeah I've been meaning to write a journal for that long. worship me, the goddess of procrastination), where I did an overnight test and then stayed the following day and took a 20-minute nap every 2 hours (5 total, from 9 til 5.) It took me forever to fall asleep during my night study because I'm not used to sleeping as the humble cyborg does (with tubes up my nose and adhesives all up in my hair) and (prepare for TMI) spent around 2 of the 8 hours having to pee, telling myself to just ignore the pee and pass out because I didn't want to bother the technician to unplug me so I could get up and pee (even though that was his job), finally caving and asking him to unplug me, laying down, and then having more performance anxiety pee 5 minutes later. Happened once before I fell asleep, then again after I woke up after sleeping for like 4 hours xD I learned to respect the call of nature that night.

But anyway, did the daytime sleepiness test the next morning, went to follow-up the next week. My overnight sleep was normal, but I fell asleep 4 out of the 5 20-minute naps, sometimes 4 minutes in, sometimes later, even when I thought I was awake the whole time. So that's super encouraging to think that I may be "asleep" when driving and not even realize it, but at least I don't hit REM behind the wheel and dream that I'm playing Mario Kart and just be all "YEAAAAH LIVIN ON THE eDGGGGGGGEEE" and drive off a cliff and expect to be dropped back on the track by a fishing cloud turtle. The doctor diagnosed me with narcolepsy, though it's on the less severe side of the spectrum (meaning I won't be able to stay awake a lot of the time, but I won't just pass out in the middle of a conversation or driving) and I don't have cataplexy (which means I won't randomly faint when I laugh really hard or get surprised). But I'm happy to finally have an explanation for all the classes, sermons, lectures, and afternoons I couldn't stay awake through (and now I know I'm not just 'lazier' than other people, though I've thought that for quite a while oDo). I enjoy sleeping, but I hate how much having to sleep has held me back. So I'm glad I can do something about it, though I'm still trying to find the right medication. The one I'm taking now seems pretty great, though. And coffee never hurts, either ouo I'm still having trouble with depression, but I'm taking it one day at a time and savoring every opportunity and happy moment I'm blessed with.

LIFE-RANT DONE NOW THOUGH. I've been working on rewriting Essence almost every chance I get, squeezing it in between classes and work, and while I know there's tons of work to be done, I'm really feeling good about it. I know I'm the worst about updates, but since I'm just in the process of writing, I don't feel there's a lot I can say. But if you guys have any questions (ANY AT ALL) then I will be more than happy to answer. Know that I haven't given up - and I won't give up, because making this story a reality means more to me than just about anything (I definitely care more about it than college, but unfortunately, college still comes first ;D; buh)

For all 7 routes combined, I'm estimating 500,000+ words (which is probably insanely optimistic), but I want to provide the richest, most satisfying experience I can. I intend to make every word count, however - no rambling, purple-prosey, drawn-out scenes like before. While I was rethinking the story for a few months, I didn't reinvent Alice, but I think I've carved out a much more successful (albeit more insane :dummy:) narrator.

While I plan on doing the art myself, I would really love an original soundtrack, too. That's too far ahead, and I can't compose myself, but it'd be so amazing ;-; In time, I hope to upload my art concepts (for the GUI, sprites, bgs, etc.).

I also wanted to ask - also too far ahead - but what would you guys think of a pay-what-you-want operation at the game's release? You could download and play for free, but a fraction of the proceeds would go to me, the majority to specific charities and causes. While actualizing the game is enough satisfaction for me, I would be overjoyed if my work could not only make a player happy but improve others' lives. I would like Essence's scope to extend beyond itself, if it can...and in a perfect world, I would love to channel my art and writing into the enrichment and improvement of someone else's life and happiness - daily.

I think that's all, but again, please hit me with any questions (Essence-related or not)! I hate how inactive I am on DA these days, but I think about you guys every day. ):

Let's all just pitch in and share an apartment and eat pizza and party errday and be independently wealthy on our dreams' fruition, okay? Okay. Yup. You have no choice. You're coming with me. NOW. DON'T STRUGGLE. GET IN THE CAR FHAIFSHfa - //tranquilized and carted away

    If you'd like to place a commission, please fill out the following form in a note :D

  • Type of Commission: (ex. portrait, half-body, full-body)
  • Method: (digital/traditional)
  • Colored/Uncolored: (for digital, I'll do simple shading on flat colors; for traditional, I can alter the lines to be a color of your choice, or leave them grayscale)
  • Number of characters:
  • Name/personality: (please list the name(s) and a brief description of the personality of the character(s))
  • Reference: (provide links to reference images of the character(s)
  • Pose/expression: (how would you like the character(s) to look/pose?)
  • Background: (color, simple shapes, gradient, transparent, etc, only applies to digital sketches)
  • Payment: (list the amount and method so we can confirm it)
  • Extra: (any additional info you want to include; if you would like me to mimic a style you see in my previous work, please say so here)

I'll provide you with my paypal information once we've confirmed the commission, but I won't ask for payment until I've completed the drawing, and after I've received the money, I'll either post it or link it to you privately by stash (your preference). This ensures that I will receive payment (but only when I've earned it), and that you won't have to wait forever to have your money's worth returned. No spending on your part until the final work is complete.

I'll consider every commission, but I reserve the right to decline any offer I do not want or feel able to complete. If I feel your request is beyond my skill level, then I'll honestly tell you so.

Thanks so much for reading. I'd be honored if I could create something you'd enjoy! :heart:

Hey, you guys. I know the last thing I usually use DA for is an emotion dump (except for when I'm gushing about friendship) but I used to be so much more active here that I feel I owe an explanation. I'm still alive and I still care about you guys so much, but I've barely been posting because I haven't really felt like myself for a while now. I've had problems with fatigue and staying awake most of my life, but recently it's gotten worse, in addition to depression and emotion fluctuations akin to a caffeinated kangaroo in moonshoes. Within the next few weeks I'm going to be seeing some doctors, including a sleep specialist, and hopefully getting back to 100% soon, because this isn't what I wanna do or who I wanna be.

I promise this is my one and only whine and like always, I appreciate all the kind words and love you guys have shown me. I wanna hear how things are going for you guys, too; I miss you...:heart:

Hey, all. I just wanted to say that I probably won't be on much for the remainder of April, in an attempt to focus more on my schoolwork at the end of the semester (and maybe get some sleep and work on Essence done). I love you guys, and I'm looking forward to summer ;u; For those of you wrapping up your own semesters, I wish you all the best (or at least some decent sleep and peace of mind. and if not that, then enough money to buy decent coffee. you can do it! woopwoopWOOOP). :heart: And then have some decent sleep and peace of mind even if you're not in school! XD You guys need it, too.

How would you like to improve?

Sat Feb 22, 2014, 8:04 AM
What are some specific aspects of your work (whether art, writing, crafts, etc.) that you guys want to focus on improving?

For instance, I'd like to improve my grasp on perspective and anatomy, how figures relate to each other in the space of a drawing, and feel more comfortable with my lineart. As for writing...well, I'd like to just be able to sit down, outline all of Essence, and write it so I'm actually happy with it. :stare:

So what about you? Tell me tell me.

For my friends and watchers

Fri Feb 14, 2014, 8:58 AM
I know this is typically a time for exchanging chocolate or tacky pink fluff things that sing when you press their paw, but I'm going to bring up something totally irrelevant and talk about love.

...I'm sorry, y'all, I know I'm not clever. OTL

But all that means is I want to thank you for the perpetually selfless love you've shown me for the past several years.

I know it may seem small, but each interaction - from small lawls to choking on laughterpuke, encouragement to sincere critique - builds up, brightens each day, and makes me a much happier person in every area of my life. I can't describe how much I love seeing the art you guys create and the goals you pursue, because sharing even a little in the joy YOU experience in bringing your thoughts and visions to life is more than enough to make me smile.

I doubt I express that enough - and I know I can never sufficiently express how much I appreciate the encouragement you've shared with me. Seriously. I love writing and drawing - regardless of my skill level, it makes me happy - and the fact that you guys would find the time to push me to improve or derive even the tiniest smidgeon of happiness from it means uckets and buckets and a much more eloquent phrase to me.

I know I'm but a small, silly person in a big, grave world...but you guys are my friends, and that's more than I could ask for. Thank you.

I hope you have a wonderful vamlumtimes day DON'T FORGET YOU HAVE ALL MY EMOTIONBARF right here

Commission Info (updated)

Wed Jan 15, 2014, 6:37 PM
Ok, my commission info, version 1.-not-0 :'D

Here are details and examples on what I'd like to start selling.

In the future, I hope to expand what I offer, so if there is any subject material/type of work (like animals) that you'd like to commission but don't see, I would love to know! Don't hesitate to shoot me a comment or note with any questions you may have. Or just to say hi 'cause you my boo.


Prices (which are presently tentative) range from $1.50/130 :points: to $30.00/2980 :points:.

I will probably only take 3 commissions at a time to ensure I don't keep anyone waiting too long. Also, I won't necessarily work on them in the order I receive them.

I will only ask for payment once I have completed your commission - however, I will only post it to DA or link it to you privately by sta.sh (your preference)
AFTER I have received payment. This ensures that I will receive payment (but only when I've earned it), and that you won't have to wait forever to have your money's worth returned. No spending on your part until the final work is complete.

It's essentially a given that I'm going to cry at virtually anything slapped onto Attack on Titan. Hit me with your best parodies, guys. Please. I love to laugh more than is probably warranted at things.

Help support an artist in need

If you guys are looking to commission someone, then check out atomic-kitten10. Her work is unique, beautifully-stylized (is that a viable term), and well worth more than her inexpensive prices! In addition to purchasing some lovely art, you can help someone when it truly counts - she needs the money to help continue her education. If nothing else, then spread the word! :meow:

vvv Her commission prices vvv
