Sad NewsAn update to the last post: Oscar has passed away.
He was doing better for a while, then he stopped eating and I noticed the side of his face swelling. The vet realized that an abscess in Oscar's mouth was cancer and that might in fact have been behind his stroke in the first place. It wasn't worth letting him suffer any longer.
I held Oscar and told him he was the best boy ever and I loved him. He purred up to the last as he passed away peacefully in my arms.
He really was the best cat you could ask for, and he's been with me through so much. I'll always miss him.
Oscar, the first week I had him.
Oscar and Aly when she was a baby. He was about 9 months old when I got her, mainly to keep him company while I was at work because I felt bad for him. They look like they're hugging in this picture, but they were actually in the middle of a wrestling match - they were good friends. In fact, Oscar was the only cat Aly ever liked (including her own kids once they grew up!). Oscar always did ge
The Oscar sagaHaven't written here in a while because I've been very sad and anxious about my oldest cat, Oscar; this is what's been going on.
A few months ago Oscar, who's 15 (76 in people years) had a stroke. At bedtime I noticed his left eye looked odd and kind of sunken but assumed he was getting a cold, which Aly had just gotten over. The next morning the pupil in that eye was fixed and rolled down and out, so we rushed to see Dr. Nutt. At first it seemed like we had caught a break - aside from his eye, his paw being a little weak, and being a bit drooly on that side when he groomed himself, the stroke seemed minor and Oscar didn't have any problems walking or eating, and he didn't appear to have any mental problems from it other than a couple times urinating outside the litter box, which might have been due to him trying to get used to his altered vision.
After a month, though, I noticed again his eye looked a bit cloudy one night, and by the next morning it looked awful, like a dead fish's ey
EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS CLOSEDMy cat Tequila (that's her with her daughter & adopted daughter) needs emergency surgery . . . this is going to run me a couple hundred dollars at least, and since I've already spent a lot on my own medical bills this year, I'm going to open for special commissions.
$50 (via paypal) for a full figure, color, painted character on a simple or clear background similar to these:
If you are familiar with my gallery, you know what my strengths are, but I'm open to new things. Please no extreme fetish/bigotry, etc. Gore or nudity is OK.

1. TAKEN - Not Here - Done!

If you didn't get a slot, I will probably be opening more lat
Life and stuffHey folks.
Surgery went a lot rougher than I had hoped for, and having to recover while being almost totally alone and also running out of anti-depressants and being unable to refill so suffering from withdrawal symptoms has really made the last couple weeks hard. Only making things worse was, the day before my surgery I found out my sister has breast cancer - and after that, another one of my sisters, who has been battling cancer for almost a year now, was hospitalized for an infection related to her radiation therapy. You can probably imagine being terrified for their lives, frustrated at being unable to help and pissed at the general fucking unfairness of the universe isn't helping the ol' mental state. I've not been able to really get any drawing or writing done, and I know inactivity is a good way to fall off people's mental radars. Even if I haven't responded to every message, I truly appreciate the comments and interactions I have with you folks.
Hopefully things will start look
Surgery again - updateI've got surgery coming up on the 21st to fix some issues with scarring and lumps left over from the surgery this past December, and which is causing me pain and impacting use of my right arm (the drawin' arm! I need that one). Unlike the last time, this is just gonna be under local anesthetic which means I'm gonna be doped but awake through it, and I gotta say, I'm kind of freaked out about it. I've pretty much gotten over the fear of needles I used to have so bad (I still don't like looking at them, but I can cope with the actual jab). Still, I don't know if its gonna hurt or feel weird and I'm scared I'll flip out during it, or something. And there's going to be the noises, and the smell . . . I dunno. I'm not usually a huggy person but goddamn, sometimes even I need physical reassurance and I could use some now. Badly. Maybe I should sew myself a friend :/
I'm gonna take at least a week off from work, so I have some books and a couple of movies stockpiled to keep me from
Art Theft, againJust this week I've been alerted that two different pieces of my art have been stolen, one as a website logo and one on a mug. I really hate having to use large watermarks, but this is getting out of hand. I've even had a Fox affiliate television station in the states use on of my pieces, credit it to someone else (who stole it and slapped their own watermark on it) and they refuse to answer my emails now. I've also had my art used in a youtube video and someone who asked if they could color in a sketch turned around and started selling stuff with the picture, without asking me. And I'm not even a well known or particularly skilled artist! Other folks I've watched have had similar problems.
I have accidentally used stock art that wasn't for commercial problems, and both times I took the art down immediately and offered to pay the artist. It would really help, I think, if DeviantArt had some sort of sorting or marking system for licences for stock art, because the artists themselves don
AtreyuTo clear that old journal off the front page and because I have nothing else going on, have a picture of my newest permanent cat Atreyu, who likes to sit up like a people on my arm while I'm working.

So You Like AnastasiaP BaTIM? (Rant)So you like AnastasiaP BaTIM? Well then I either A: Pity you or B: will be against you. Why am I making a journal about this famous MMD user? Well, This is a rant so I am going to swear and express my true self. If you don't want to see the real me then don't read this.
I made a bunch of journals one of my puppet accounts called "MMD Justice" and I'm taking it to the next level here.
The person at fault here is the one and only, the famous 15-year-old UNDERAGED (remember that) TEENAGER named @/FellNastya or AnastasiaP BaTIM. This bitch is so bad that TDA THEMSELVES are keeping watch on her ass. She is being rightfully accused of: Tda porn, tracing motions, stealing poses, editing models without consent, abusing her girlfriend, underaged sex images, fandom obsessions, texture stealing, not crediting model parts, and a whole lot of other shit.
You know those BaTIM models everyone wants from ShiinaRei r

Design contest! (DL. Nov.10th)Another contest. ^^ Pretty lenient and plenty to choose from so you don't feel restricted!
It's straight forward.. design anything from the links/info below!
I'll try to keep the journal short in hope people will actually ready it thoroughly unlike my other events. ;c
First things first!
Your art level does not matter, this is for creativity! Let your heart burst with imagination!^ That said, if you feel comfortable about it, you may use a base - as long as the base grants permissions for this sort of use.^ Bases are accepted--especially if used for just outfits/armours or weapons.^Digital AND traditional, pixel, any! are all welcome.
You can submit up to 2 character and 2 outfit/weapons/etc designs from each link, but keep in mind, only 1 of your submissions can win.^ To clarify. you only "need" to give one entry. but you're allowed a total of four.
Obviously, don't copy/trace/steal and all that.
My Opinion On My YouTube/DeviantART FanbaseYeah, uh..it's not that bad, first of all. Sure, most of my YT fans are actually nice to me.
But when it comes to character redesigns, title changes, and name changes?? Hohohoho, some of them can even leave me.
Does it piss me off? No. Does it sadden me? No. Does it make me happy? Yes. They can do what they want, I don't really give a shit.
It's called having opinions, and I respect that. But don't fucking bash me into animating/drawing something I don't want to draw/animate anymore.
Let me do what I want. I'm not going to do what you want anymore because, honestly? I'm not listening to young triggered children anymore. I'm getting older, and it's time for me to face it.
This entire summer was literally just me going through so many character development phases, and some kids leaving me doesn't bother me at all lmao.
But here is way different. I can express myself more, I can share my opinions on certain things, I can talk to my fans, and I can get less pissed off here.
