• check out my fanart site, SUGARED CARDBOARD.
JUST BECAUSE IT'S IN SCRAPS DOES NOT MEAN IT IS GARBAGE.

i put things in scraps because:
01) they're low-quality and i don't love 'em enough to put in my main gallery.
02) i like them enough to post, but not enough to put in the main gallery.

if it wasn't a good drawing, i wouldn't upload it in the first place. i don't care if something is drawn very well; that doesn't mean i want it in my main gallery and telling me it's not "scrap material" is really aggravating, because i think it is. scraps =/= crap. IF IT WAS CRAP, I WOULDN'T UPLOAD IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. UM, DUH? i'm uploading it to dA at all because i LIKE it.
if people would add others' scraps to their watch in the first place, it wouldn't be like no one'd ever see my scraps. =_=;


SUGARED CARDBOARD; my fanart site is up.
SUGARED CARDBOARD; my fanart site is up.
there are a lot of drawings that have never been on my dA archive, so go check it out. mostly anime/manga fanart, but there's more as well. :3
plzsigntheguestbookkthx.

:iconcari: and :iconfopsama: are visiting me at kent later today. :D
i need to tidy up my half of the dorm. my roommate is such a slob. XD;
i set up a photobucket account with some doodles and junk art. photobucket.com/albums/a40/sug… "sugared cardboard" will be the new name of my art site, if i ever put it back up. XP

i wish i was drawing more than doodles as of late. :B
:iconantidamage: <- shine.
remember!:
15,000th pageview => free request from me!

your character, an anime/etc character that you like, whatnot.
screencap it and email it to me please! :D almost there!

even if you're a couple numbers off, you can send it anyways~ someone might not have gotten 15,000~ closest wins!


[EDIT] =Starlett got it! congrats! ^.^ please send me a devnote with your request!

and thank you everyone so much~ i never thought i'd ever hit a five-digit number. :heart:
finals are over. i'm not excited or anything like that, just relieved. T_T; so i'll be drawing more, etc. i'm already working on something in photoshop~ more practice-y stuff than a finished picture, but at least i'm being productive.

i was going to rant about something, but i've forgotten what that was, so it'll have to wait. XP


KIRIBAN:
if you get my 15000th page view, i'll draw you a free picture of your character, an anime/etc character that you like, or whatever. :3 just screencap the page (please remember to save it as a .GIF to make it easier on me) and email it to me. i don't do free requests, so this is a chance to get a drawing for free. XD have fun!~
just one more week of classes and then finals... actually, i only have classes monday through wednesday this week, so that's nice. chemistry and art history are going to kill me.

crunch time. *cries*
oh wow~ this is awesome. a free one-week trial of the paid account option on dA. :heart: i'll have to make sure to use dA a lot this week. :D personally, i'm most excited about the search option, because it made me really mad when they made that just for paid members. T_T; because i used it all the time.  ah, well. in any case~ i'm not enough of a dA addict to pay for a supscription, but this'll be en enjoyable week. :heart:~
  • Listening to: music of the night [ phantom of the opera ]
wow, i've actually been drawing lately. it makes me feel like i'm uploading a crazy-go-nuts amount of work. wtf. ;D

i think i'm finally out of my slump.
and it feels good.
the only reason i don't leave DA is because i want an archive somewhere in a community, and because i don't feel like hopping on the "i hate DA i'm leaving bye" bandwagon. (and no, i'll never be going to frickin' sheezyART, so don't ask; give it a couple years and people will be leaving there too.) little children just come and infest these communities, so i doubt i'll be joining another one any time in the future. no, i'm not leaving DA any time soon, but i'm so sick of the 11-year-old art and the peabrains that come with it all.

i like being able to get comments and etcetera, i really do. but things like the favorites system insult me as an illustrator (because i don't take it serious enough to call my work "art"), like these drawings just come out of some machine. a real person sat here and took the time, effort, and dedication to draw this picture that you like. you could have a smidgen of courtesy to at least take 30 seconds out of your effing busy schedule (cause you're soo busy if you sit around hitting the +fav button on DA all day) to at least say that you liked it. y'know. tell the creator what's so great about it that you want to +fav it. THAT is why it's rude to +fav without commenting. and if you don't even SKIM the description on a deviation that you're not just glimpsing at, then you don't deserve my time.

in any case, i'm going to be revamping my art site (again) in my ever-continuing journey to make it as user-friendly and easy to browse as my HTML knowledge (and general creativity) allows. eventually (i don't know when), i will probably close down this archive and simply host all my art on my site, but that's probably not going to be for a looonngg time, so don't worry your little heads about it, 'kay?

i like getting comments. i LOVE getting comments, actually. especially ones that actually talk about the devation and say something besides, "cool!" or "cute!" or"fhqwhgads!" so please comment. :D

but stop hitting the +fav button unless you mean it. i don't lower myself to humor you people who simply +fav stuff just to get pageviews and comments. because i will not say "thanks for the fav" if you didn't comment. turd.

i feel better that that's all out of my system now.
seriously. stop messing with me. it makes me mad and sarcastic. that's why my descriptions have become boring and sarcastic: cause this community isn't anywhere near as much fun for me anymore.
happy 2005, everyone!
hopefully this year i'll get a lot of art/etc done... i wasn't too productive most of last year (plus, i don't get much done during the semester @_@;;!), so i hope to, well, be more productive. not a "resolution" or anything, just something i'm gonna try and do. i'm rambling.

i am NO LONGER TAKING TRADES until further notice. i've got my plate quite full of trades, all of which i am happy about, and there's a lot of stuff i want to draw for friends and just for me.
the scanner's out again, and that means everything has to be done by tablet, which is harder for me. poo poo POO. meh. sketches will be scanned by ~fopsama, because i said so.
I AM TAKING ART TRADES/EXCHANGES. devNOTE me (don't leave it in a comment, please) if you want to do an art trade. i don't just do anthro characters~ if there's an anime character, etc, that you want me to draw for you, ask me about it. :3 please, if you're interested in getting art from me ;D send me a note, we'll do an art trade.
i might not be able to get to it right away~ i do currently have quite a few trades on the back burner, and since the scanner's out again, that means everything has to be done by tablet, which is harder for me. (i might even ask if it's okay if i give you my hlaf as an oekaki ^_~) so please be patient, and if i haven't gotten to it in a month, then you can remind me; i may have forgotten. :
there's a list of my characters here: dusted-dreams.net/chars/index.…

have a merry christmas, everybody! :D
I AM TAKING ART TRADES/EXCHANGES. devNOTE me or email me if you want to do an art trade. i don't just do anthro characters~ if there's an anime character, etc, that you want me to draw for you, ask me about it. :3 i need to draw stuff, thus, i need motivation. please, if you're interested in getting art from me ;D send me a note, we'll do an art trade.

also, i have updated my character info page! go to www.greatestjournal.com/users/… for more info! also, please take the poll for your favorite of my characters at www.livejournal.com/poll/?id=2… ^-^


oh yes. and if you +fav a deviation without commenting, especially when it says in the description to do so... well, that means you suck.
new computer in the family room. wow, my own account, too. there's nothing on this computer to do, just the internet. i need music and pics and adobe. where the heck did my adobe CD go? i really want it on this computer. scanscanPLZ?! my tamagotchi is beeping, g2g ttyl cya.
the computer that our scanner is hooked up to is completely shot, so the only stuff i'll be able to upload is stuff that's 100% CG, like oekaki and any lucky drawings in photoshop/OC. yep. and i don't have any decent stuff done, so i have no clue how often i'll be updating. you can check livejournal.com/users/starshap… for doodles and stuff. there's also LJ icons and other stuff there~ you have to sift through for the drawings. have fun, kids.

TAKING A CAP: find the prt scr/sysrq key, which is to the RIGHT of your backspace or F12 key. hit it, and it will take a capture of the screen. paste into a new file and crop it. example. save it as a .gif or .jpg or .png and email it to me.
