30,002 Views!!Finally reached 30,000+ page views. For the long gaps of productivity and the relatively limited market of the genre that makes me pretty happy.
Kudos to all those who've been fans, collaborated, and done commissions for me. There will be some arts to mark this day.
Now, to 50,000!!!
Lisa Miskovsky 4 Arms 3 Legs Music VideoBrowsing the interwebs I found this wonderful music video by Swedish artist Lisa Miskovsky called "Mary". The song itself is rather beautiful and meloncholic,
however the character she plays in the video is a wheelchair-bound freakshow performer with four arms and a dipygus third leg. Also features a pregnant bearded lady ballerina and a dwarf clown.
had more emotional depth than the entire fourth season of American Horror Story: Freak Show.
And that three legged woman from the trailers. Although kudos for having Myrtle Corbin's ghost in the Halloween episode.
Legit Three Legged Lady in IndiaSo perusing youtube i came across a video of a woman with three legs in India. It looks legitimate enough. The middle leg is useless, turned upwards. However its placement is in-between her two regular legs so she probably has two pelvises and two vaginas as well.
American Horror Story FREAKSHOWSo as someone with a clear interest in freaks and freakshows...
American Horror Story: Freakshow is probably what I am looking forward to the most this October.
Yeah... Dicephalus Conjoined Twin main character(s), Three Breasted Woman, Possibly Three-legged Contortionist, Electrodactyly, Phocomelia, and all other manner of oddity. Half the fun is reading the public reaction to this... as in this community its occasionally hard to get an neutral opinion. Plus its such a great setting and idea. I have a few OOCs already tied to freakshows but I'll have to think of some fiction to do that is inspired but not derivative.
Not so big on the clowns... kinda scare the shit out of me--but that's why its American Horror Story.
Check out this poster with a woman (clearly photoshopped and probably not a character) with a duplicated palm:
Anyone able to do an Animation Commission?So I would like to commission an animation of a three-legged woman walking 2-1-2-1. (inside-outside-inside-outside.) It can be either as a rough sketch, 3D, or fully colored. Price negotiable before prospective draft.
Lurking... oh Caitlin I missed you.Dumping some new-old Caitlin drawings that I did awhile back, posting on my end a older CS commission, and putting back up the Amanda drawing that I took down awhile ago.
And maybe some other stuff after I finish some pressing RL projects after Wednesday. I've been working on two new OOCs that are not nearly as "outlandish" as the regulars.
Some Activity... not deadHaving been lurking for awhile I'm going to be coming out with some commissions in a bit. Some reasons for me not being prolific at all in the last year is me losing half my hard drive and not having the cash to fork over. Both those are still true but progress is progress.
Tentative Artwork Plans and CommissionsHere's a preview of what I hope to accomplish in the next few weeks to months, before I begin any other projects or even think to do my own commission work:
-Design some clothes layers for cut-out dark-tone "Smokin' Bethany" (CLEAN)
-Bethany's exercise - PE (clean/nude?)
-Young Bethany Running to Class (CLEAN)
-Anne on Subway (CLEAN) *commission idea in notes*
-Pole Dancing (NUDE)
-Caitlin's open jacket--Krazy Gift, *coloring*
-Catlin Yoga - - Krazy Gift *coloring*
-Redesign, finish Sasha *change hooves to paws*
-Finish, Post Fatima
-Finish, Post Nancy
-Finish Tatiana, ???, Frogman, Harpy
-Sketch RP char ideas (not my OCs) -*naga, two-sided, two-bodied, fallout centaur, Abbey, etc.
LillyVaine - Anne Scene 2 *stretching on bed*
Access - Anne Cheerleader
Jackcrowder - Anne and Bethany "Kiss" Monty
CS - Amanda hanging from tree
DQ - Caitlin 3D model *pose TBD*
Solios - TBD
Hiatus Ended...This will be short, as I have much more to say, but not the time.
It's been about a year since I've drawn anything substantive, maybe even longer. There's been some occasional commissions and colorings since then, but nothing original.
I've since decided to come out of retirement and begin to work on new pieces. Particularly focusing around my OC Bethany Mogollo, who I have redesigned both in appearance and have increasingly begun to flesh out her background. More on this later.
Take a look at the latest piece I've done of her, http://somethingelse77.deviantart.com/art/Smokin-Bethany-353046525
Also, please fav and comment your like on :iconLillyVaine: incredible rendition of my OC, Anne Mckay, http://lillyvaine.deviantart.com/art/somethingelse77-s-commission-Anne-McKay-353060029.
Still don't know how to link people directly from post... drr
Anywhom, also, new yahoo ID, so send me a note if you want to talk about something with quicker turn-around, I'm always on.
[CLOSED] 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

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
Headshot commissions -CLOSED-Comment down below if you're interested for a slot, and include the info of what commission type you want!
Don't note me until I give you a heads-up
This will make it easier for people to see how many spots are left, in case I'm lagging behind on updating the list.
If there are 3 unanswered comments claiming a spot on a list with only 2 spots left, then you can be pretty sure that it's all filled up.
First come first serve!
-Sketch and simple headshots // and semi-/ painted headshots will each have their own list,, because the former is much quicker to do and I usually have the energy to do multiple simple headshots in a row.
Simple headshots 18$
Painted headshots 35$
You can also ask for:
sketched headshots 5$ (no color)
or semi-painted headshots 20$ (rougher,
