dA@14 and My Favorite ThingsIn honor of deviantART's 14th birthday (yay) I'd like to say that dA has very much so helped me to grow as an artist (along with having inspired the very expensive purchase of a Wacom Intuos4 and Photoshop CC that isn't compatible with Wacom). Anyways, dA has continued to inspire me every day, though more so it is the amazing people here rather than the website itself. You are all amazing.Onward:Its been a while now since I've shown off a few of my favorite things. Many people use my stock and I enjoy each image that is shown to me, but while I save every image I see that uses my stock, very few actually make it into my favorites. I hope that you enjoy this small bit of the collection as much as I do.:bigthum

[RAFFLE 4000 points or $40]Chit Chat! Updates!!!Hi ya'll! It's been forever since I have written here, but I figured I would update ya'll on my life. I recently got a new job, it's still new but it will help me greatly for bills and saving up! So I don't have to panic anymore hehe. Always scared I can lose it though. I hope not! -I recently started making a financial plan and schedule for bills as well as capping limit on spending a certain amount, I've been trying to do it where I do not need to freeze my card once it hits a certain amount and it's going well. Hopefully that continues <3 -I'm starting to eat healthier, even though the environment where I live is still horrible I feel like I'm making progress. -I want to thank all of you who I've met on here and supported me, gave me advice, and have been just so genuinely kind. -As a thank you, I would like to hold another RAFFLE!

I don't even know how to write journals anymore D: I hope everyone is
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
NPC Design Contest!NPC Design Contest!!!I've mentioned this a couple times during streams and in the questions channel of the kebanzu discord but I wanted to make a couple official exciting announcements!

Theres another thing that I've really been wanting to implement for a while that I just haven't had the chance to do, which is to have actual NPC shop keepers, which is where you guys come in!I've decided to hold an NPC design contest for the two new shops as well as the Enchanted Stone Exchange!The contest will run for 3 weeks starting NOV 1 and ending on NOV 22 at 11:59pm Pacific timeRULES• Each user can submit 1 entry per NPC (3 entries total
