Ahh, drama. Now I remember what I've been missing on dA!

Not that dA is special in that area or anything. You can get all flavors of drama in everyday life: work, family, school, friends, etc. But it does really seem like there are a lot of people on here only to get attention, and only the attention they want. I like websites that encourage positive interaction like dA, but many of the users here just ruin the fun. But hey, it's not as bad as youtube... and that's always a plus.

I like to be active here apart from just uploading design and photography. I appreciate all the response I've gotten for my work, and I try to be part of the artistic community here. I'll comment or fav pictures I like, but I also like to share my voice on pictures and artwork that have deeper meaning; artwork that is charged by a strong personal belief or opinion on a subject.

You would assume that the artists of said artwork would be sharing their work because they feel passionate about their beliefs, but I've found that passion and reason don't go hand in hand here. Many comments with opposing arguments are quickly "hidden" (censored) by the artist(s). How's that for open mindedness?

That's one of the reasons I really like :iconpseudo-manitou: as an artist and (as far as I can tell) a person. He makes statements with his designs, and he's willing to stand behind those statements and tell you why he thinks what he does. He's not uploading his political artwork here to be accepted and get a million "I agree 100%!!!1" comments. I love reading his debates with others.

Anyway, I'm off to browse flickr, where the only drama is Canon vs. Nikon fanboyism!

Hey fellow watchers and deviants,

It's been a long time! And with time comes change (at the risk of sounding cliché). A lot of you probably aren't the same person you were 2 or 3 years ago, and neither am I, artistically speaking.

My creative interest in digital art is still there, but not in the same mediums. I took a break from drawing, thinking I would be back after some time, but I was wrong. I really don't draw much anymore. I still love drawn and painted art, but I just don't enjoy creating it like I once did. I might experiment from time to time or even fully submerse myself in it like I did before, but for now, I'm taking a different road.

My current creative interests lie in photography, graphic design, typography, and even some video. I will most likely be posting submissions from these areas in the future. Feel free to un-watch me (or however that works, haven't been active here in a while and it looks completely different!). I won't be offended :3

Have a good weekend everybody!

I miss you guys!

Back from anthrocon- and motivated to start drawing and arting again in general!

Anthrocon was one of the most exciting things I had a chance to go to in some time. Being surrounded by other members of the fandom and being able to draw and talk about what I love with thousands of other furs is just a great experience. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to attend, and I plan on going again next year!

So, I guess what I'm getting at is- you can expect more art from me in the coming months. I was in what some call a long-term art block- a combination of 1. lack of interest, 2. other time consuming hobbies, 3. ultimately forgetting how fun it is to be an artist and a part of the art community. For those of you still lingering about with an interest in my art, I salute you! (but srsly, why? xD)

I'm going to take a while to regroup and get my 'skillz' back up, and then I will be continuing art trades, commissions, and other art related things.

So, here's to rediscovering art, and finding renewed interest in what I used to love!
:bulletpurple:Hello fellow deviants,
I'm sorry about my absence! I basically lost interest in uploading my art here for a while, but I plan to get back on it and upload some stuff. I have some of my graphic design work that I would like to put up, as well as a few scraps if I have the time/motivation, and I plan on working on some new pieces to show that I am still alive...

I've been working at GameCrazy for a while, and I've really enjoyed it. Nothing like being surrounded by the games you like to play all day!

I'm making a Fatal Frame 3 walkthrough on YOUTUBE if anyone is interested!

Take care all,

I've never had someone very close to me die. I've never felt what it's like to lose someone. No one should ever experience what my sister just went through... especially so young and with so many dreams for the future... she was going to marry this man. He might as well have just torn her heart out and thrown it on the ground. He left her with nothing...
I know he wasn't thinking straight when he did it. He was such a young man who shared all of her dreams. He loved her, and he was going to commit his life to hers this spring. They were going to spend the rest of their lives together. He was going to become my brother in law. Why did he do this? He threw all of it away in that moment he decided to end his life... and left everyone who knew him and loved him with a gaping hole that will never be able to completely mend.

Please... send your prayers out to my sister and her fiance's family. All of this has happened so fast, and no one could have ever been prepared for it... I would really appreciate any spiritual support for these people in need... :iconbellydancer:

:bulletgreen: I have noticed a slight improvement in my art. A couple of the past pictures I have drawn have left me feeling Like I actually did something worth drawing. This is an improvement because I usually feel frustrated during and after my sketches. I notice now that the lines flow more easily, with less time and thought, and I use the eraser less ^_~ I think I will put more time into improving my skill to the next level, because I'm taking some graphic art courses in college soon. Maybe I will do commisions when I have a bigger 'fanbase'? (lol like that will ever happen *_*)

I've allready found someone to trade with! We both like wolves (of course) So I'll be drawing her Lluvia character, and she'll be drawing my -unamed- character. Can't wait to see what will turn out!
