Bad DreamI don't even know where to begin.... Have you ever had that moment where everything just feels like a bad dream? That nothing is in your control anymore? At the moment that's how I feel. For the few that know me you would know that my mom has cancer. And one that very few survive from. We thought she had been doing better. She was doing better till this weekend. We aren't sure what happened but we got the call this morning that her organs are failing. We just had to say good bye to her because she only has about two or three days left. I mean I've lost my grandparents before and other friends have lost family members but my own mother? I am not even sure what needs to be done really. I have a general idea but I mean I never really talked about with her. You know? I keep thinking this is a bad dream I'm going to wake up from and she's going to be right there ready to go shopping with me or go on vacation. It's not fair. Life just really sucks right now.
I knowYes it's been a while but I saw something on facebook that made me mad. If you look up Catch 'em All they have a lot of stolen work on there and are selling prints of people's work. Funny enough I wouldn't have realized had a friend of mine not liked the page and it featured a piece of art I had just faved a few days ago.
This Vulpix mirrored -> is the original
This is the stolen they are trying to sell.
They have a website as well. http://eeveetee.com/
See if you spot any stolen work and spread the word!
I'm Alive!!!*crawls up from a hole* I LIVE!!! Good gracious I realize I haven't posted a journal since July.... Lots have been happening... this year just hasn't been good. First my uncle passed away then my grandmother passed in July and just last month my other grandmother passed..... So yeah I haven't exactly had time to get on here except for a few things. I have been having to sort through a lot of things plus deal with other personal stuff. I'm hoping once the holidays hit everything will slow down.
How is everyone? I hope everyone is doing well?
Just no timeSo I have had like no time to do any art stuff. Why? Well my uncle passed away about a month ago and then my grandmother passed away not even three weeks ago and I'm still trying to get my feet back under me from the traveling and work. With little to no time I've basically fallen into a dark hole and trying to bring myself up back into the light. I do apologize for being away but I will be going on a huge fave spree to clean out my inbox.

Losing feeling....See the only down side to having a full time job is no time for free stuff like art.... which shouldn't be an excuse but shhhhhhh I'm going to use it any way. And all I do is sit in front of a computer all day and lose feeling in my butt because I have a crap chair that I still haven't gotten replaced..... It's literally been like 9 months since I've asked for a new chair because of the pain my chair now causes and my manager is ******* fill in whatever word you want. Basically he is a horrible manager who shouldn't be in charge of people. But I will hopefully be finding more time to be doing art stuff. I hope.
I'm alive!!Wow just realized that my last real journal post was back in *goes to check* February.... I knew that!! Any who what's been going on with me? Well things have been hectic what with mom recovering from surgery and me helping out around the house a lot more and her going back for chemo.... I kind of can't wait for this all to be done with so I can go back to a normal life and possibly move in with my boyfriend.
Any who as for art that has not really been on my mind but I have been working on the NanoEmo from like three years ago to try and finish that since I saw the previews of suicide squad and for some reason that made me want to work on that. So here is a little preview of what I've done so far

ContestNot going to win but why not. One of my favorite watchers is having a contest. Go check it out or at least check out her amazing work!
Been a whileSo yesterday I spent 12 hours in the hospital because my mom was in surgery to remove the cancer. She is in the ICU till hopefully tomorrow because there was a bit of a complication. I am exhausted didn't go to work and just don't have the energy to do anything art related. I will be going on a fav spree only to clear out my inbox. When mom gets out of the hospital I don't know how free I will be to even do much. I will poke my head in on a Valentine's day and then pop off again.

Make deviantArt a fucking better place!!! Part 1Okay, guys,
I think I need to be hard. I am more than 9 years an deviant here on dA. This is good for me to compare the past and now. And maybe have a clue how dA will be in the future.
I have the feeling dA is getting more and more heartless. And I am not the only one. I set up a little poll, and the few who took part gave me this:
The first years I was here, everything here was great! Great artists, nice people who you could talk to (and who talked with you, TOO!), a lot of fun with the community, reaction on my work, reactions on what I wrote for you, feedback like comments and faves and so on. But this has changed extremly. I feel lonely here most of the time. I have no Fun being part of this community anymore. (And I think may have the same opinion, as many left the community)
But what can we do?
This is why I will write some journals, all about this topic. I will tell you my point of few, and

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:
1. A detailed literary analysis and trope driven deconstruction of H
